Selfood #25 : Here & There

Assalamualaikum

image

I am a dangerous type when it come to Nasi Campur. I tend to grab grab grab and definitely won’t miss to add on fried chicken. Huhu. This is what I have after some ‘yes or no – monologue’ in my head. Went to Kuehpedia weeks ago to have lunch with my colleagues.

image

This shop was so plainly simple on the outside. But wait, come inside and you will be suprisingly amazed with the decorations.

image

Love the name too. Kuehpedia. Yes, they are selling cakes and desserts. You can find Kek Lapis Sarawak in here too.

After School Face

Assalamualaikum..

How are you my friends and readers?

Everyday I would fetched Amani from school. From then, I saw her mood keep changing. Perhaps people on that age also facing a bad hair day, like adult did.

image

I noticed that this girl has no phrase like Monday Blues in her life. She seems happy at the earliest of weekdays.

image

In the middle of the weeks, she would give this face when I fetched her. Asked her about how’s school, she wouldn’t respond it.

image

This is TGIF face. Lol! I wonder what made them so stressfull in school (at their age).

image

Very unlikely for us. Now I realised that MB and TGIF doesn’t apply to kids. Enjoy your weekend!

Escape : Pandan Beach

Assalamualaikum

image

How much do you love beach scenery? I love it so much. I found peace and tranquil times at this place.

image

Another weekend getaway was planned on last month. Indeed I had planned to meet my craft friend who lived in Lundu. Before meeting her, we went to the Pandan Beach.

image

There is not much different from the last time I went here. It was still the favourite beach visited by the locals.

image

The view, the air, the sound of the beach… I just love it. At least I could escape for awhile from the hectic life in Kuching.

image

One thing I loved most about Pandan Beach is the beautiful sands. You don’t need to search for the shells. They are everywhere and all you got to do is to pick any of it. Well, we collect some of them that day.

image

As usual, my boyfie here also made a special appearance for my lense. And my mind echoed the song from DNCE – Cake by the ocean. Lol!

In Loving Memory Mochi

Assalamualaikum

image

Last month we were so happy to welcome Mochi or Ngek (my mother gave that name 😂) Our baby kitten. She came from nowhere, suspected that she was abandoned by someone in front of our house.

image

Because of her, our old cat Boboi return to our home. We were so happy to have two adorable cats. Amani was the one over excited to play with them.

image

Until last Saturday, the last day we saw her. She was accidentally hit by my brother. Sad, of course but her memory with us remains. Rest in peace, dearie kitty.

Teachers’s Day

Assalamualaikum lovelies!


On Mother’s Day, Amani told me she wanted to write a Mother’s Day card. I just gave her doodle book and let her write on it. When it was done, she showed it to me. Yeah, that’s me and her. Looks like we are in a sugar rush moment. Lol. Can you see ‘mirror’ M there? I sometimes worried that she kept on doing mirror writing. More practise, perhaps. 


On the weekend, I helped her to make gifts for her teachers. Last year, we had made Cactus bead cupcakes. So for this year, we were making Tulip Bead Cupcakes. 


Yeah, that’s the tools for making it. Pysla Beads, Cupcake cups, Playdough and artificial shells. Amani was on task to deco the shells. 


Ready for delivery.


She was so excited to give the cupcakes to her teachers. Along the way to her school, she kept on rehearsing how to wish her teacher. “Happy Teacher’s Day!” she said.


And for the potluck, I chose to pack fruits for them. As Amani always remind me to bring healthy fruits for them. 😅

Hair styles

Assalamualaikum.

image

Last week, when I fetched Amani from school I saw that her hair was tied into sugar cane styles. She told me her teacher made it. The day before, her hair was styled as in Elsa braids.

image

And then she asked me to braid her hair. However, I could only made a messy braids on her. Lol!

Selfood #24 : Food Hunting

Assalamualaikum…

image

Crabs. 🦀 I love crabs but not fancy to crack the shell. Bahaha. I admit it, I’m so ‘manja’ 😂 Well, the dish we were having here was at D’Ketam Cafe, Sematan. My brother in law insisted on me to try this. It is known that this is the best place to have Crab dishes in Sematan.

image

On the way to Serikin, there were vendors selling veggies and local plants at the sideway if the road. Normally we would stop there on the way back to Kuching. And so that day I stop there after shopping at Serikin. I bought some veggies, fruits and this. This is the an exotic dish – Nasi Periuk Kera (Rice in a pitcher plant). Here they made it with local paddy which is Beras Huma. Some of them had prawn sambal filling inside.

image

I also bought Buah Salak from there. This local and exotic fruit taste bittersweet.
