cooking time

guess it had been months since hani had been cooking cos most of the time kami tinggal berdua je. over the weekends when the children are back home, senantiasa ada je jemputan kenduri, tak kira laa kenduri kawin, kesyukuran or tahlil. thus, dapur hani is so clean and bawang2 yang ku beli dah jadi estate, beras pun kami beli yang sekilo je but out fridge is still full of lauk pauk yang dibeli entah bila bila ..

since those days, hani nii bukannya jenis pandai and rajin kat dapur and alhamdulillah, ALLAH had presented me a husband yang tak cerewet and berkira sangat bab2 makan. we are not the type yang terlalu memilih since we can makan cendol mamak yang tepi jalan, duduk kat warung and gerai and we can always popped in the hotels just for hi tea ..

this weekend ie mid february, papa had fetched aqeel from the apartment on friday and hani had prepared tomyam campur as well as daging goreng kunyit (campur kobis) and goreng ikan for dinner. we had an invitation from mak icah on saturday since aryl is leaving to sydney to pursue his geology course, had our lunch and dinner at mak icah's the whole of saturday ..

we had nasi lemak at kak kam's on sunday morning and well, guess it had been more than four months since hani last visit bch wet market. our regular fish mongers thought we had migrated elsewhere hahaha .. thought of cooking heavy lunch since najmi and aamal are also around .. had steamed ikan bawal emas with broccoli and tomato, bbq chicken and ikan goreng (hubby's favourite) with ulam peria and terung cicah ngan budu; papa really enjoyed his lunch after so long ....

aamal and najmi left before lunch since they had promised maa in sri gombak for lunch .. aliff called that he is coming back for dinner since nadia is on call .. initialy we decided to have a light dinner but hani had volunteered to cook for aliff and aqeel, had cooked ikan talapia goreng masam manis and ayam kunyit with kobis

pd and melaka revisit

sat 28th jan - with kak ani and abang faisal, we left to port dickson after taking our breakfast at ghazali restaurant in country homes rawang. papa drove abang faizal's hyundai while najmi had driven papa's d-max with aamal and aqeel; aliff and nadia waited for us in melaka since they attended a friend's wedding in linggi ..

traffic was so clear and we'd reached the ocean view apartment before 10am, had unpacked our belongings and recleaned the apartment before the children started to survey the beach and the swimming pool. by 12.30 pm all of us are out for lunch and we'd stopped at anna thai restaurant since the guys (abang faisal, papa, najmi and aqeel) are going for golf at the palmspring golf resort. with aamal on the wheel, we ladies headed for teluk kemang to do some window shopping and sightseeing ..
