Fear

Hello lovely readers…
If you remember, what is your biggest fear when you were young?
I bet, most children during our times are afraid of storm, lightning… ghosts… but not with children nowadays.

My niece was afraid of loud sound like machine sound, people shouting…. I discovered that Amani also have some fear.

image

She was afraid of something moving with her. I tried to put her on controlled car, she screams and the car had to let go to her cousin. She doesn’t like to play with the musical toys, something like in the picture above. That was a tricky picture, the horse didn’t move indeed. Took a while to encourage her to ride the horse.

image

Secondly, she is afraid of something furry. She hates threads and the worst.. she hate it when some fallen hair stucked on her fingers or toes.. She would cried for help to get rid of it. Luckily at this age, she already overcome the fear of furry toys. Not with hairs… she is still afraid of hairs… huhu.

She also fear with sands, beaches, dragonflies, coackroches and men. Yeah… she is afraid of men. When some man trying to approach her, she will start to glue onto me. She’s okay with woman.. hehe.

By writing this post, I also discovered my own fear. It made me think that, is it the same fear we had since we’re child? What trigger the fear? Can we overcomes it? Does fear shows our personality?

I’ll let the experts to think of it. hehe.

Till then, ciao.

Kek Lapis and Teddy Bear

Hello lovely readers,

Last weekend I accompanied my brother to buy Kek Lapis Sarawak (Sarawak Layered Cake) for him to take away to Peninsular Malaysia. Without much thinking, we went to Mira Cake House located at Kampung Boyan. (just the opposite of the Kuching Waterfront)

image

The last time I went here was two years ago. At that time, they were selling cakes at the food stalls. I was surprised to see they are now have a proper cake shop. Bigger even! Impressive. Many people knows that they once had a downfall during the Golden Churn issues. Nothing could stop them. Now, they are more established.

Apart from selling ‘old school’ cakes, now they have added someΒ  commercial name cakes. There were Kek Tengku Adam, Ariana Rose, Mr. Arrogant, Mael Lambong, Ngap Sayot, Neelofa.. etc. I bet the taste are all the same. (Not really a fan of Layered Cakes though. 😦 ).

image

There were biscuits too. My brother ‘borong’ about 5 types of cakes. His favourite is Kek Lumut. I have to agree with him. The Kek Lumut in Mira Cake House really tastes delicious. Yummeh!

image

On Saturday, we sent him fly to KL. From his face, I know he feels ‘heavy’ to leave. With the ‘water problems’ happening in Peninsular, money problem (always a student life problem)… and homesick (yeah, admit it bro. haha)

image

Amani also joining us to send her uncle. She told me she wanted to go to ‘Ke-Ewl’ as well. I wonder what do children at her age knows about KL. muhuhu. I only loves the shopping part. Besides that, I doubt to live in a hectic city like that. huhu…

image

Till we meet again bro. My teddy bear. ;D

Happy Spring Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Hello lovely readers…
This is my first time doing a blog hop. Thanks to Angela for organising The Happy Spring Blog Hop.

If you ask me what is my favourite season. I have to answer it is Spring. I love Spring! Unfortunately, my country didn’t have four seasons.Β  That means I have never experienced the seasons including Spring. I wish, one day I can visit some other country and feel the Spring season.

Spring to me, the flowers are blooming. I love flowers. My favourite flowers are Hydrangea, Cherry Blossom, Rose and Tulip. I wish (yeah, another wish) to hold real Tulips with my own hand one day.

Well, as for now I can only hold fake/artificial tulips. Until the day comes, I am going to make my own tulips. Saw a tutorial from the Pinterest about making felt tulips.

image

It does look very easy and simple. Indeed, it needs patience to make it. My first attempt looks really awful. Lol! After trying to re-do and more practises, finally my tulips were looking better.

Ta-da!

image

Come and tell me, what do you think? πŸ™‚ As usual, I’m not satisfied with my work. Need more practise after this. Any tulips lover out there? Tell me, what’s your favourite colour of tulip. I love purple tulip because it’s very rare. πŸ™‚

That’s it. Thank you for your time for blog hop and reading my blog.

Now, it’s time for giveaway!!
