SPM Is Over... So What's Next?

SPM EXAM IS OVER!!!  A BIG SIGH OF RELIEF!!!

Yeah, at least for my girl who has taken nine subjects only... today was the last day of SPM for her...

I can heave a BIG sigh of relief...... no more waking up early-early each morning, no more accompanying her to "burn midnight oil".... (she on her books, me on my blog) ... now we can go out in peace, no more rushing me to go home because she needs to study!  She really made me worried, not because she never studies hard but "overstudied."

So.... what's next?  She wants to take up driving, going for her "undang" test next week.... let her learn how to drive and I will have one duty less to do... chauffeuring..  but I think I rather take her where she wants to go rather than she drives herself... (parents, we never stop worrying for our kids, huh?)

In less than half a year, she will be leaving her "Nest."   Gosh, I don't want to think of that now... meanwhile, just enjoy our time together... as much as we can..

  2. Let her take up a part-time job as well... that will help her ease out of the nest... and make you get used to her being away. Also would teach her more life lessons in the process =)

  10. I think it's wonderful what you have done for your daughter. She is lucky to have you as her mother. Letting her drive is a good thing, just one more step to maturity.

  12. When you have a good life, time flies fast. When you are in trouble or problems it stands still. Getting the drivers licence is extremly important. Good luck to your girl.

  14. Oh yes, enjoy her now! Then you will have empty nest syndrome, that's what we call it here! Who will teach her to drive? If it is you, you had better get some strong medicine for your nerves!

  16. You know there is a song from George Harrison,,,"If you love somebody,set them free,hehe, set them free" that day of freedom will surely come to all the parents,,,,,

    but then again,you are right,"parents just stop worrying about the childre,can we?"

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
