Back home...

Alif was discharged this morning. Back home, all I did was RELAX (sleep&eat). It was also the nasi kandar day (Nasi Kandar Kayu is just across from our house) as i was too lazy (say:tired) to cook.

Late evening, people from health dept came to fog our area (eventhough alif probably contracted dengue in usm..)
With hubby having dinner appointment, Alif @ USM, Adil still watching TV (oh that couch potato of mine!), MIL in her room, I am here trying to figure out how to improve my blog.Still learning.....

2nd week of October was a busy one as i had orders and also an open house.
12 oct - attended a friend's open house. would regard as a house warming too since the couple and their 3 children moved into the house just 6 months ago. Nice big house ...complete with kidney-shaped swimming pool -in the middle of a padi field.

I had orders of Curry Mee and nasi himpit (pressed rice with peanut gravy) for 50 pax on the 16th.
The next day was an order for 80 pax. This time it was ketupat pulut with rendang ayam, nasi himpit with peanut gravy, fried beehoon, fruits, cold/hot drinks. I was lucky to have my 2nd son helped me that day, thanks Adil, you saved my day....

Immediately after, it was again preparation for my two sons open house. Every part of me worked this time and finally on sunday 19th, they had nasi beriani, ayam masak merah, daging kicap, kerabu timun, brownies, sponge cake, jellies, cheesecakes and my hubby's specially requested mee goreng (dubbed mee goreng uncle). It was a tiring but a very happy day as everyone went home smiling & a full stomach.

.....And as everything seems to settle......my eldest son had high fever this week. After two days at hospital, it was confirmed that he had dengue! My oh my and today is our fifth day at the hospital. Hopefully he can be discharged in a day or two as he will be sitting for his semester exam in less than two weeks.

Thinking what to put in blog is another 'headache'.....i realised that there's no ending to word 'learn'....
Family comes first in whatever I do. With one hubby (yes-ONE!) and 2 grown up sons, my days are still occupied.People say when your children are grown up, you live an easier life...but no..you have another set/s of issues (i don't want to put that as problem) Eldest is at uni, the 2nd will be sitting for his SPM in 30 days time, OMG he seems relax but me???

Next week will be a busy one for me with few caterings to do. My sons are hosting a shared open house & as usual mother will be the one running here & there to put everything in place. God willing, next update, I will share my experience being a 'superwoman' of the house.

Welcome. After much thoughts, I decided to create this blog to share my interest in esp cooking and others, inshort a public diary-heh heh. At the same time I want to be on par with my soulmate who has a very nice & interesting blog. I will share his blog with you later..not now as his will definitely outdo mine
