Sunday, December 30, 2007


Since i came back from balik kampung, i dont what i've been up to. Not productive at all. Of course i have all sorts of plans in my head...from work to chores to new resolutions, but that is as good as it gets, they stay in my head.

For example, Friday night i was determined to wake up Saturday morning and wash my car (as in literally do it myself)....but look where i ended up.

Yesterday afternoon i was supposed to be burning off the 'raya haji makan tak ingat' effects at the gym. But after lunch,.....

Someone come and save me, or give me a good spanking!!!!!

Food Food Food

I just came back from another long trip home. Plan nak balik one week only, but Mum asked to stay longer...almost 2 weeks jugak la. Makan, makan, makan...i think i put on a couple of kilos kat sana.

Here are some foodie pictures i took from my raya haji baking activities, and a laksa party we had for my Mak Ngah for her birthday.

1. Ini my first attempt buat kuih makmur. My favourite ni. Mak Long dah perturunkan recipe kat I. Raya tahun depan boleh order tau!;-) (iye la tu). Gambar ni belum powder dengan icing sugar lagi..lepas dah siap lupa pulak nak ambik gambar.

2. I also baked these little chocolate cupcakes. My nieces loved them so much that i had to bake 2 batches raya puasa baru ni. Cupcakes dah siap, they all tak jadi balik pulak. Makan sendiri la...

3. The ultimate chicken rendang. Mak and the maid yang masak.

4. This is another first try. Wahdi's mum punya Pretzel recipe. Kalau nak recipe pergi cari kat blog Wahdi. I couldnt find the caraway seeds in the recipe, so i pandai-pandai tukar to sesame seeds. If you are tired of sweet cookies, give this a try.

5. We threw a small laksa party for Mak Ngah's birthday. Orang Kedah panggil 'laksa kilo' because its sold by the kilo. Sekilo RM6 je, and the kuah is really nice. And for dessert my mom made that pengat ubi merah with red beans, suka sangat sebab instead of letak santan she put in evaporated milk and custard powder. Syrup lychee tu i made it myself, biasa je tapi i jarang buat air-air manis ni, sebab tu nak post jugak pic tu..haha.

The Board Meeting

Board member #1

Board member #2

With the new year just around the corner, Jill and I convened our 'Board Meeting' yesterday to discuss our business plans for 2008. Its been 10 months since i quite full time employment, and our company is about 8 months old. Its had its fair share of ups and downs...more 'downs' to be honest, but its expected. We are just starting out.

We chose The Apartment because we love the ambience. We have thrased out issues, have BIG plans and now work begins.

The big bucks are not rolling in yet, but i have to say i am happy to be on my own, to be living my dream. I am not giving up on this anytime soon although i am sure many people are putting their bets against me (us).

I pray that 2008 will be a good year.

Enchanting Enchanted

If u havent catched this movie, i am recommending that you do. But a word of warning, leave all your reality checks at home, and just enjoy.

I took my nieces and nephew, and we had a good time. If u have kids, they sure will love it...especially the girls. My nephew was in denial (tho, during the movie i saw him laughing all the way). And if you are into Dr. Mcdreamy (Grey's Anatomy), you will be pleasantly enchanted to see him out of his scrubs.
A clever movie with real life characters inter-twined with animation, and some of the CGI effects are quite amusing. I especially like the "apartment cleaning" scene by the rodents and birds and watch out for Pip the chipmunk, he is hillarious.

Di dalam sebuah cinta
Terdapat bahasa
Yang mengalun indah
Mengisi jiwa
Merindukan kisah
Kita berdua
Yang tak pernah bisa
Akan terlupa

Bila rindu ini masih milikmu
Kuhadirkan sebuah tanya untukmu
Harus berapa lama aku menunggumu
Aku menunggumu

Di dalam masa indah
Saat bersamamu
Yang tak pernah bisa
Akan terlupa
Pandangan matanya
Menghancurkan jiwa

Dengan segenap cinta
Aku bertanya
Aku menunggumu

Dalam hati ku menunggu
Dalam lelah ku menunggu
Dalam letih ku menunggu
Aku...Masih menunggu

Bila rindu ini masih milikmu
Kuhadirkan sebuah...
Harus berapa lama, harus berapa lama
Aku menunggumu, aku menunggumu
Aku menunggu...aku menunggumu

Lyrics: Peterpan

Terima Kasih

Terima kasih!

Thank you so much for all your well wishes for my dad. He's recovering well from surgery. Sekarang ni have to learn to walk again using a walker. We have a physio guy coming over to the house twice a week to help him get back his strength.

And thanks for the birthday wishes. I have recovered from that too...the birthday "OMG, i am a year older" syndrome." i have forgotten my age (haha) and feel young again a.k.a tua tak sedar diri...heheh.

Past few days i had no mood to blog. I was busy rearranging my back room into a little home office - my studio as i would like to call it. I'll share pictures later, cant seem to get the right angle with my humble camera phone. Now i am no longer working or blogging or surfing from the dining table. My back, if it can speak, would be thanking me profusely.
