Book Junkie mode ON


How are you my lovelies?

When my stitching currently off mode, my reading mode is on. That’s how it goes. I never had time doing nothng. 😂

How many of you have read this book? Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. There was a movie version from this book adaptation too. I have watched the movie and read the book. I gave 4 stars for both version.

You can read the book synopsis and my review in here

 After reading tensed book, I would change something in light genre. So I picked this book. Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn.The plot was ok, about a young girl who accidentally burnt their house and caused the death of both her parent. The soul never found peace so she haunted another girl living in that house. It stated there as a ghost story, but it didn’t scared me at all.👻 Perhaps it was a children book. Gonna keep it for Amani reading in future. 

Saw from the internet that this book also had turn into a film version too. Great!

And after reading Helen… in one sitting, I was itchy to grab this new book bought at Popular Book Fair two weeks ago. 

So this is my current read. The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins. Yes, another thriller. And also another ‘book going to be a movie’ soon will be showing on October 2016. 

So far so good. Wait for my review. I think I can finish reading this book within this week. 

p/s: The fried bihun was good too. 😂

Jojo The Cat

Assalamualaikum. Hello lovelies!

I have posted this picture before and mentioned that the cat’s name was Katniss. That is because this cat was so fierce, couldn’t be touch and helpless. It was so frustrating in the beginning because I couldn’t help to clean the cat. It kept on hissing on us and attempted to bite any hand that go inside the cage.

My sister in law found the cat the roadside. So dirty, smelly and lost. She took it and asked me whether I am willing to adopt it. I said Yes, of course. 😁 That’s how it end up to be my foster cat. hehe.

On the Eid day, my brother tried to tame it. Looks like he succeed and we discovered that the cat was a male. 😅 Which means, I had to forget on the name Katniss. My mother gave him the name Jojo.

Jojo is okay for him. Joni Depp? Lol! 😂 The next day after eid, I found him escaped from the cage. He hid behind the boxes and I tried to grab him. To my surprised he didn’t fought back. So I bathed him, ‘buang kutu’ and let him played inside the house. 

To this day, Jojo is free from ‘kutu’ and smells nice. He loves to play and very active. Very ‘manja’ too. Poor Jojo, he must be missing his mother. He still didn’t know how to drink milk from the bowl. I had to feed him with a pet milk bottle. I bet Jojo is still about two months old. 

So that is the story of Jojo the Cat. A siamese and once a stray cat. He is my cat crush. 😘

Selfood #36 : Rj Ayam Bakar Kopitiam

Assalamualaikum. Hello lovelies!

As tradition continues. We went to Rj Ayam Bakar Kopitiam for Azlina birthday treats. Yup, it was my first time too, eating here. 

The specialties there of course the famous Nasi Ayam Penyet and Nasi Ayam Bakar. I opted for Nasi Ayam Penyet, because my friend told me the Ayam Bakar is more spicy than this. After trying this, I think that their another outlet (at Satok) served more tasty and spicy than here. 

And here is the birthday girl! Look at the expression. Win! πŸ˜‚ Happy Belated Birthday, baby girl. 😘

Mini Hoop Swap


Rise shine, lovelies. 

I have joined a mini hoop swap #veryberryhoopswap organised by Veryberryhandmade. It requires us to swap an embroidery mini hoop. I was so excited to join in and started to find the mini hoop (size not more than 2.5 inch) all over Kuching. I even asked for my friend and my aunt in KL. The searched was fruitless. So I tried online. Found it but the shipping cost is so expensive. (RM60 for shipping).

And then I remember Angela of Wish I were stitching is selling knitting/stitching supplies. So I asked her and she said that she got it. The price is rather affordable from other shop so far, so I grab two! πŸ˜‚ 

I was,surprised that the package came with some other goodies from her. Aww.. you are so sweet, Angela. Thank you so much! 😘 You guys can visit her online shop too. 

I learned that my partner loves flower and heart. She also likes red colour. So I decided to stitch a rose pattern for her. And stitch a wooden heart on bottom of it. The mini hoop is on its way to a new home in United Kingdom. I hope my partner will like it. πŸ™‚

It was so much exciting and enjoyable moment doing this swap activity. Thank you Veryberryhandmade for organising it. I’m looking forward for another swap project. πŸ˜‰

Ciao. x. 

Selfood #35 : Coffee Garden


Rise and shine lovelies!

Everytime I went to Tun Jugah mall, I always mesmerised with this shop – Coffee Garden. Located at the ground floor, very easy to spot on. So one day we decided to try having lunch at this place.

I love the decoration, suits to the name itself. I bet this owner is the same owner of Coffee Clinic & Coffee Factory. Same concept, different outlets. Pretty cool. 

Since I’m not a coffee lover, I didn’t order any coffee that day. I chose on promotion menu that day Cajun Chicken Aglio Olio with free Iced Lemon Tea at only RM11. My colleagues tried on Nasi Ayam Penyet with free Iced Lemon Tea at only RM10. 

As you can see, it’s a big portion for me. However, I am quite satisfied with the taste and nice presentation. The only problem is the slow service, which I can accepted that day because they were only two staffs on duty that day. 

I am definitely will come again to this place. They were outside section too where the real japanese roses were planted. Yup, next time. πŸ˜‰

On Merdeka Day


On Merdeka day, I followed my parent in law to visit Dear Dear grandmother in Sematan. So off to Lundu we go. Managed to capture the Pandan Mount from the bridge view. 

After coming from Sematan, we stopped at Pandan Beach for a while. Such a beautiful view and a very nicr weather that day.

This angle is continued from the previous picture. 

The big rocks are still there. I called it mini rock mountain. 

Close up a little bit.

After Maghrib prayer, we went back to Kuching. 

p/s: Lucky to buy Ikan Kembung at RM10 per kilo that day. :mrgreen:

Selfood #34 : LocalΒ 


Came home from work, and saw the three favourite dishes cooked by Mak. Umai, Crab with eggs and Sayur Midin. Amani saw me eating crab and she asked me “Rasa lepeh ka Ma?” (Does it taste like cockroach?) Bahaha. I can only laughed at her. Dunno where did the “lepeh” idea came to mind. 

Aha! Now I have found another favourite Laksa Sarawak. Suits to my tongue. 😜 It was Old Time  Coffee House, laksa. Very delicious. The thick broth and soft vercimelli. I gave 5 stars. hehe. 

Bought some ‘rebung’ at Lundu last week. So cheap. Only RM2 per basket. When coming home, I asked Mak to make Acar Rebung. But… I forgot to buy Keropok Lundu. haish… 

Sarawak Museum


I’m having Mee Brunei again yesterday. This time I chose yellow noodles instead of bihun. I think I prefer bihun. 

Okay, this is a late post. After our first visit to eat Mee Brunei, me and my colleagues decided to visit the museum. Since one of use here never entered the museum, so we took her and look around like a tourist. hehe. 

See, any chance people mistaken me like a tourist? hehe. This is the museum shop, my favourite. Lol!

This door is so big and very heavy, I bet. We were told that this door was carved by great grandfather of Orang Ulu, and his great grandchildren sold it to the museum. 

After that we went inside. This is the gallery for wooden carved dolls, from various ethnic in Sarawak. 

This doll called Dayung. I knew Dayung means a Girl or a Lady in Bidayuh dialect. Probably the doll was a girl. 

There was also a Rumah Panjang (Long House) in this museum. I would prefer the Long House at Sarawak Cultural Village. More realistic.

A replica of a bus, first public transportation in Kuching. 

An antique trishaw. 

My family!!! 🐸🐸🐸

Little Science Project


One day Amani brought home her science project. It was green beans experiment. I remember that I was doing this experiment when I was in primary school. This time, my daughter had learned this at such a young age. That’s good!

She was excited to see the bean sprouts are really spouting. She even brought back to school to show it to her teacher.

I teased her that she must eat the beansprouts because it’s good for health. She then ran away and made her face. Lol! Another failed attempt to force her eating veggies.
