My Quiet Christmas 2015

CHRISTMAS DAY 2015!
 My most quiet Christmas moment... year after year we entered a different phase... changes in life... This is the year I retired for good, once and for all... This is the year my sons are not with me, one hundreds of miles away and one thousands of miles away in another continent...

From the year I started blogging, that is 2008, life is always not the same anymore... year by year, there are new changes in my life... and each year is a bonus and I am really thankful for everything that comes my way... my daily life is fulfilling... be it peace, joy, pain, hurts, happiness, contentment, I shall be thankful for each day....

An ecstatic moment as I dug out my Christmas posts....
Christmas Greetings.... 
Christmas greetings in 2011

My life is surrounded by beautiful people... 
my kids, my family, my friends from all over... 
though they are not always by my side, 
I am very grateful that...
I am OFTEN on their mind as they are in mine..... 
BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!

  4. A quiet Christmas of looking back, looking around and inwards. Even though some of your kids are not with you, you all are united in love and thoughts. Every year will bring a new chapter in your life. Merry Christmas and wonderful weekend!

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
