Notice (Pengumuman)

Dear Cooks and Readers,

My apologies for having to send you this notice but I needed to let you all know that I need a few weeks break from blogging due to some very personal matters.  I am really sorry.  I have taken pictures of a few recipes but I am unable to work on them at the moment.  Will try to post as and when I can.  

Meanwhile, hang in tight and Happy Kitchen-ing!!

sabsuka, saksuka, shakshuka

Hello Cooks, before anything else, I would like to draw your attention over the right side of your screen. In line with my resolution to be a better person and to help make the world a better place, I have placed a few links to the various organisations which could use some help from us.  Please please please check it out to see if you are able to help or contribute in whatever small way that you can.  Just like the late Michael Jackson used to say it, "let's heal the world, make it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race".

Last Day of Fetching Sayf Ahmad from Nursery

Yesterday, was the last day of my leave since Sayf started his first few days of school.  It is also my last day of spending full day at home with my lover boys as well as my last day of fetching Sayf from nursery before passing on the full responsibility to my kitchen-ing assistant.  I didn't know why it did not strike my mind to take pictures of him much earlier.  Perhaps the stress of thinking that Sayf would be upset about going to school and the fear of having him cry which would somehow distraught me emotionally, totally blocked the excitement and happiness of a mother whose child is finally starting school and beginning a new phase in his journey of growing up.

Indian Fish Curry (Kari Ikan India)

Kari Ikan Mamak

The past few days had been quite bad.  I have been having sudden bout of migraine attacks. Paracetamols were not helping at all and I was still under attack today.  The throbbings were really killing me but I decided not to let it ruin my Sunday. I downed two tabs of synflex after lunch. Yes, it was so bad, that I had to order home delivery for lunch.  How can I cook or even do anything at all when it felt as if my head was being hammered all the time?!  After about half an hour of taking the tablets, it was like magic.  The migraine was gone.  The best thing is, my two lover boys were well behaved today and before life gets back to reality, I decided to grab my lappy and had this post typed out.

Tilah's Mum Chicken Rendang (Rendang Ayam Mak Tilah)

On New Year's Holiday, I cooked my most favourite dish. Oh yes! I know! I know you might be thinking in your hearts that it is nothing new as every dish is my favourite dish and I am the blah blah blah who claims that I am not greedy and who calls my "supersized" self a "supermodel".

Cassava Leaves in Coconut Cream (Pucuk Ubi Masak Lemak)

Happy New Year 2014 to all my fellow Cooks!  2013 went by in a blink of an eye.  Very much so for me who already feel "old" and now I am dreading "older".  Whatever it is, for most of us, we are leaving behind a year of sweet and sad memories, ups and downs, laughter and tears and life experiences which no doubt makes 2013 yet again another year to remember and hopefully leaving each and every one of us nonetheless a year wiser.

Steamed Palm Sugar Cakes (Kuih Kaswi)

Hello Cooks!  It had been quite an enjoyable past few days.  I decided to take a few days break from blogging and spend my few days totally smothered by the three lover boys of my life.  We didn't do anything much except that we were happily eating away as usual, frolicking on the sofa watching our favourite horror and thriller movies.  Of course not all is sweet and merry when you have your toddler and your baby getting cranky at different times of the day and you had to find your way around trying to calm them down and enjoy whatever was left in the remaining part of lazing around but all in all, yes, spending quality time with the kids and entertaining them at their whims and fancies is really worth the while though it can sometimes be quite tiresome.  Still, these are the treasured moments that I will never get to enjoy anymore once the kids are all grown in the future.
