Sales @ IPC

Got a message, notifying about a Sale going on at IPC (Ikano Power Centre) last weekend (Sept 30-Oct 2). Went there with hubby and Hifdzi (by bike), which was more convenient. Grab few shirts for Hifdzi.

Merlin 4 - The Darkest Hour Snapshots

Few snapshots I took from Merlin Season 4 Premier - The Darkest Hour (Part 1). The season opening episode was a brilliant! Few touching scenes - between Arthur and his father, Uther, between Arthur and Gwen, also between Arthur and Merlin. The final scene was the best, when Merlin saved Arthur. It showed loyalty and friendship. Very sad scene... can't wait for the second part this Saturday!

Till then, enjoy....

Shopping With Fathi

Went shopping with Fathi one day. Just for an hour or so. Had to get the kids' 'Dugro'. We went to Giant. Didn't bring the rest coz it was just a quick stop. But bringing only one, didn't make it any simpler.... huhuhu...

In front of a pet shop

Took some time to make him leave the shop

Still, it was a quick stop, so yeah, bringing Fathi alone was the right choice (^^).

New Blender

Refreshing home-made fruit juice

Got a new blender. Alhamdulillah and thank you hubby (^^). This one is much better than my old one. It has a bigger glass, with a lid. And the good thing is the lid has a spout. Makes it portable, indoor or even outdoor. How many blender can do that?

Ready to blend

Done! Apple juice... yummy...

Since I got this new blender, I can't stop using it... hehehe...

Coconut Jelly

Normally, time balik kampung jer boleh makan jeli kelapa ni coz kat sana ada jual kat tepi2 jalan. Kat sini cam takder orang jual sangat. Tapi tak tahulah kot2 kat area2 lain ada. Sekali makan takleh stop, sedap sangat2. Lagi2 kalau baru keluarkan dari fridge. Menyelerakan (^^)....

Yum... yum... soo refreshing...

Cam tak cukup jer...

Jamuan Raya @ MNRB - Hubby

These are for hubby to bring to his office today. Notice the chips? I had to use the strawberry chips instead of the usual chocolate chips. Ran out of chocolate chips after finished baking Aisyah's muffins.

Choc muffin... had to use strawberry chips instead of chocolate chips coz I've ran out of it...

Hope they all enjoy the strawberry-chocolate muffin (^^).

Jamuan Raya @ KAFA

Choc Muffin with chocolate chips

This morning Aisyah's school had a 'Jamuan Raya'. Yesterday she told me that her teacher told her to bring something. So, I made some chocolate muffin for her, and for my hubby too coz his company is also having 'Jamuan Raya' today. Syukur I have all the necessary ingredients in my kitchen. Hope they enjoy the muffin (^^).

On The Road Again

Want to have this memory treasured in my mind... but we all know the fact that our brain will get rusty... huhuhu.... just in case it went missing, I think it's best to keep it here....

Got my license when I was in High School. Got all the answers right, along with my sister, Deena in the exam. That time we had to answer 50 Qs I think. We both scored 50/50 (felt proud.... hehehe). Also scored during the test drive (parking and up-the-hill drive). But unfortunately, didn't pass the test drive on the road coz I got to drive in the 'Kampung' area. Was nervous 'bout the cows and bikers along the way. Couldn't concentrate with the driving... huhuhu...

So, I had to take another test. Syukur I got to drive on the main road this time. It was smooth and easy (^^). Got my license then. Yeay! hehehe...

Painting Project

Since we were gonna have an Open House last few weeks, we did some painting coz our house was 'decorated' by the kids.... they are soo 'artistic' (^^)

First day, we painted in the evening.... the kids weren't asleep, except Hifdzi... but when he woke up.... boy! he ate the paint!! so, we decided to wait till they all fell asleep.

Hifdzi, paint on the shirt

... his leg too...
The 2nd day (which was the night before our Open House), the kids were asleep, except Amal - she purposedly stay awake to help with the painting. We started at 12 midnight and ended at 3 in the morning. Amal? Still have the energy to continue, if we were to continue....

The kids' tudung were quite 'dull' (to me)... so I thought of a way to make it 'alive'. Last month I bought Aisyah a tudung with beautiful flower embroidery. I thought, maybe I can make up something like that. So, off to Memori Hati (sewing store), grab few accessories (acrylic stone) and few other things.

Started my sewing project as soon as I got home. The kids were so excited. They couldn't wait to put them on (^^).

* A good way to encourage your little ones to wear tudung rite? Try it!

Merlin Season 4 Official Trailer

Exciting news! Merlin will be aired on Oct 1. Here's the official trailer... enjoy...

Bug For A Snack!

Hmm.... this is actually an old entry.... didn't get any chance to post it before, got 'trapped' in houseworks and business... plus, just got back from vacation :)

Know the bug? Well, one day it 'came' to our house. Guess what Hifdzi did to it. He took it with his bare hand, we thought he was gonna play with it, but shockingly, he put it in his mouth!! Yikes! Syukur we were watching, otherwise the bug would have been his snack! (^^)

Cool Refreshment!!

Blended mango & ice blended bandung
How much does it cost for a glass of ice blended? Around RM3-5. Right? So, why waste your money? Just do it yourself. It's so simple.... a piece of cake! Plus, you'll get whatever flavour you like, whenever you want or how many glasses...

These I made for my kids (and of course for hubby and me too).... last week I think... It was refreshing.... yummy.... better than the one you get from outside...

Wanna try? Get some mangos, cut into pieces, put it in the blender, put some chilled water, some sweetened milk, then blend! Put some ice cubes if you like. Voila!

Ice blended? Put some ice cubes in a cup (a lot, 3/4 cup), some fruit juice (your favourite flavor), some water (just to 'move' the blender) and blend! Try it!

Shopping Raya @ The Store



Aisyah's & Hifdzi's
Alhamdulillah, last Saturday was able to go for shopping at The Store to get some new clothes for the kids (esp Fathi & Hifdzi coz they haven't got any). This time, I went with Aisyah ONLY! The rest... stay at home with dear hubby... hehehe....

When we got there, the place is flooded with people.... already!! It was only 10 in the morning.... wow!!

After a quick grab, paid for the shirts (after a long queue), went home. We spent only 3 hours. Imagine how long would it take if we decided to bring all 5!! huhuhu....

One Day @ Workshop

After the accident, I had to bring the car to repair. Having no one to look after the kids at home, I had to bring them all to the workshop, and as I expected...

Our car

Aisyah & Anis (Amal's at school)

Fathi... as usual, he sits wherever he wants! dirty or not, it's not a problem (to him)

'Cute Patch' Project

Cute Cuppies for Aisyah
Tips for moms who think their kids' clothes are 'dull'. Make yourself a cute assorted design patches, then just sew it on... easy peesy...

You can use either some old cloth that you are no longer using (some old shirts), or you can just get this fabric-like paper (forgot its name) at any stationery store.

It comes in 10 colors each pack and it costs less than RM4. Fun way to 'glamorize' your kids' shirts (^_^)

Fries Fries Fries....

All time favorite

Had this for berbuka one day (side dish), and another day for 'moreh' at home (^_^).... the kids asked for it.... and today?? perhaps.... huhuhu.... didn't matter though, as long as the kids (Aisyah and Amal) are happy and willingly to keep on fasting till the end.... insya Allah....

Sometimes, I don't really prefer to prepare this myself coz it might get overcooked if not being careful (ie. leave it unattended in the wok to attend the kids).... and you know how it looks like when it's overcooked (hangus)... and the taste.... eee.... but now that I have my beloved Pressure Cooker.... hehehe.... I'm ready to prepare anything.... just keep it coming boyz and gurlz.... mama is on the 'move'.... \^^/

What's so special about the PC? This is what :
~ No more 'burning' food coz so far, if I let the fries unattended in the PC, it won't get overcooked, which would normally be when using normal wok.
~ Save lots of cooking time ie. Nasi Beriyani cooked in just 7-8 mins! Wow!!
~ Craving for fried rice but not in the mood to get messy? No worries coz I'm able to prepare it in a jiffy and without a fuss coz the PC does it all!!

... these and many more....

Noxxa Pressure Cooker

This is my PC in action... hehehe.... thanx to my beloved hubby for this 'hard-working-sous chef' (^_^) and thanx for making my cooking life easier....
