Temptation #10: Tutti Frutti

image

Tutti Frutti for iftar yesterday. yeay!

There’s new outlet for Tutti Frutti at City One, Kuching. The place is just near to my house. So I was ‘berpantun’ with DearDear to have iftar at that place yesterday. Glad he ‘balas’ my pantun. Hehe.

There you are. My tutti frutti, sprinkles with marshmellow love.. Gummy bears, chocolate chips, nata de coco, cornflakes… Yummy!

Only the gummy bears taste like frozen rubber. It’s hard to chew. Look at Amani’s face, she was trying to chew the gummy bear. Huhu.

Crafty mood

I’ve made another bottle craft.

image

This is simple to make. Took only five minutes to do it. I just stick on the cloth sticker and a ribbon. Simple isn’t it. Now you can make your own crafty bottle. 🙂

Happy Teacher’s Day!!

Animated version

Who would you like to be if you were a cartoon character?  Ehehe… Weird question eh? No, if you are an anime fan. hehe.
Here’s mine…

image

I want to be Tenma Chan or Rukia Chan… Both have different personalities. That’s me. The first impression when you meet me, you must be thinking that I am a serious person.. untalkative, but when you get to know me well enough…. plink plink! I can make you laugh the whole day. (based on people’s opinion towards me lah).

Now, who would Amani be in cartoon world?

image

It’s Chibi Maruko Chan. ahaha… Judge for yourself the character of Maruko Chan. Very very Amani. muhuhu…

Baju Raya 2013

image

Yes. I know I know Raya is three months ahead. I bet you think it is still early talking about baju raya. hehe..

But not when you decided to send the cloth to the tailor. Almost every tailor has stop taking order for sewing baju raya. At last my problem was solved. I have sent my clothes to the tailor last week. My last resort tailor. She sew my engagement dress before. Expensive? You bet! 😛

See the picture above? It’s a design for Amani’s baju raya. Hehe…

p/s: Can’t wait to see her wearing peplum during raya.

Mommies’ Weekend

Hello Monday!
How was your weekend?
Mine was full with family gathering. On Saturday we spent the day at DearDear’s grandmother house.
Yesterday, we had ‘makan-makan’ with my sister’s family and our parent.

All the mommies in the family. Love you mom!

My parent with their grandchildren. Another two were not around (my brother’s children).

Amani showed her drinking skill. She was excited to see her cousins Yaya and Adam.

Looking forward to have another family gathering during raya.

Happy Mother’s Day 2013

Everyone knows today is a Mother’s Day.

I also don’t want to miss out wishing my mother a Happy Mother’s Day!

This year has been a tough year for mom.

Since my father admitted to the hospital, she was the back bone, his supporter and his hand and foot.

During my father first operation

I know it’s not easy to take care of a sick patient.

I’ve been taking care of Amani when she was sick, I thought that was one of a miserable day for me.

But look at my mom, she never complaints… She’s suffering a knee problem (I know how painful it is cuz I’m an athritis patient), but she is still strong enough to accompany my father to do the follow up check-ups, cooking, giving bath…. and even taking care of us.

Stayed at the hospital for about 2 months

If I have an award, I will give her a “Supermak” award for her.

She deserves the best! She’s my idol!

I love you mak… 

Happy Mother’s Day to Mak, and also to my mother in-law… and beautiful mommies out there. 😀

TEMPTATION #9: ULAM

How do you like to eat ‘Sambal Petis’ (what do we call it in English?).
Yesterday we had a pot luck ulam sambal petis. I brought the sambal and apples, my friends brought some other fruits.

image

The sambal petis was made by my mother-in-law. I like the taste she made. Not too spicy, not too sweet. Now my friends were asking for more and they would love to buy it from her. 😉

Women’s language

Women really do talk more than men. (Agreed)

It has been claimed that women speak about 20,000 words a day – 13,000 more than the average man – and scientists say a higher amount of the Foxp2 protein is the reason women are more chatty (1)

Women use metaphors, analogies, nothing is spoken directly, questions are rhetoric and everything has multiple meanings. Men are basic, women are details. Details, details, details…If you don’t got the details, do not talk to a woman :-p (2)

Why so suddenly I bring up this issue? Am not trying to create gender war here.

It was after reading Sophie Kinsella’s I’ve Got Your Number, I’ve double agreed with the fact.  

Ok here, I quote some phrases from the book. 

Poppy sent a text message to her fiance after found out that he cheated on her.

“Hi. How are you doing? P”

Short and simple. Men might think the question is direct to the point. Indeed, there’s a question behind the question.

Here’s the explanation from Poppy. 

Hi means, Hi, have you been unfaithful? Have you? Please, PLEASE don’t let this be true.

How means, I really wish you would ring me. I know you’re on your stag do, but it would reassure me so much to hear your voice and know that you love me and you couldn’t do such thing.

Are means, Oh God, I can’t bear it. What if it’s true? What will I do? What will I say? But, then, what if it’s NOT true and I’ve suspected you for no good reason- (3)

So, now do you understand women’s language? 😀
