A Glorious Weekend

I had a lovely and one of the most amazing weekends last week : whole 2 days of eating , cooking, walking, hanging out with the whole family.

Sabtu pagi, siap2 nak pergi breakfast with my husband. U can see my mum ...tengah bagi nasihat..ha jalan elok2...pelan2...jangan makan bukan2...

We headed to Kayu Nasi Kandar kat Bandar Sri Permaisuri. Kedai ni baru je bukak. So saja la nak cuba. Tapiiiii...service slow ....tak mo pergi dah lepas nihhh!!

Food, glorious food

For lunch, I made a lovely whole roast chicken...kalah kenny rogers tau.

Start by marinating the chicken with lemon, garlic, rosemary, sage, thyme, chilli powder , soy sauce , salt and breadcrumbs.

Ni le hasilnya.....crispy di luar...lembut di dalam..

Makan plak...dengan sauce2 yang sedap my special mushroom + brown sauce.
Sedap tau makan ngan mustard..

In the evening,we snuggled up in front of TV with crisps and zzzz....kenyang

Glorious Twin Girls

Sunday up early, we headed to Putrajaya Intenational Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2009. Bunyi cam best kan...tapi Hot Air Balloon nya...ada satu jek. tu pun tak naik2...Takpe la, yang penting family outing and gathering, had a lovely time and good company.

My First Outing

I had my first outing since my surgery last thursday and it helped me sooooo much.

Last thursday was a big day – my 4 week follow up appt. with Dato'. He said I’m doing great and takde masalah so far. Actually everybody was surprised to see me...nampak sihat...berbanding orang lain yang buat the surgery pada hari yang sama. Alhamdulillah.

Masa timbang berat, sukanya dengar...I’ve actually lost weight since the surgery ...yeyyyyy...semangat nak diet nihh. My new life has definitely begun…hahhaha...DRAMA QUEEN!

Tapi, bila Dato' explain secara detail...sebenarnya my cyst actually dah stage 4, the worst stage.... terdiam kejap.Tapi Alhamdulillah...sempat buang sebelum melarat...I rasa syukur sangat2.Pengajaran...pleaseee...jangan ambik ringan kalau ada sakit apa2...walaupun tak memudaratkan pada mulanya.
The next big step - now I need to come up with a plan for longer term recovery and that benda ni takkan berulang lagi. Coz, kemungkinan cyst ni akan berlaku lagi agak besar.
Shasha Elite and her husband pun ada sekali buat checkup ...I think dia dah 2-3 bulan kot pregnant.Cantik dia kat luar...seri ibu mengandung... :), and friendly.
Lepas selesai je post-op check up, banyak lagi aktiviti yang perlu dibuat.Hehe. My husband bawak I pergi grocery shopping at Cold Storage Ikano and look around at Metrojaya, The Curve for clothes.Actually bukan look around je..ada la beli sehelai dua. Hihi. Pastu sempat g Ikea..beli barang2 sikit.
Fun sangat dapat get out and actually be able to walk around the stores without pain. Shopping is one of my fav activities, after all, and ordering things online just isn’t the same as touching everything in the store.

Enjoying the little things in life...sooo happy tengok...beg2 plastik ni

My Fav cookies from Ikea...sweet, crispy oat cookies.
Dah penat...g makan kat Uncle Lim's...
Mine..Milo panas and roti bakar
Din - Uncle Lim's Laksa...sedapp nih..

..thought that was just so sweet.. went lunch and dinner in a real restaurant.....
if you are in the hormonal stages as I am, let someone brighten your day, trust me, it works.

So...esoknya...I serve lunch untuk my husband...consider first time la kot...since surgery.
Simple...kuah singgang, ikan kembung goreng and sambal gesek.
Tapi...banyak dia makan... :).. I Likeee

Cooking as therapy...

Lama sangat dah tak masak...dah sebulan rehat...Hari ni rasa nak masak benda yang paling senang and paling sedap...
The easier the better...hahahhaa . Pantang pun dah start langgar sikit2...

So...I decided to cook simple Spaghetti aglio olio for my lunch ...just now
I think this is a dish that everyone can do... especially in my condition , really really cheap and made with ingredients you always have at home...tak payah nak keluar beli barang...

10 min..dah siap...


Petang semalam , my mum balik kerja , belum masuk rumah...daripada pintu pagar dah update dia buat apa kat office, staff ponteng la, staff dia curik2 guna hand phone dia la..sebab kredit banyak sangat, ada orang jual tudung baru la...mak dah beli..bayar 2 kali....macam2 lagi la

Mula-mula dia cerita...staff dia bawakkan sayur labu, bendi and bunga kantan from kampung, tanam sendiri...I 'Mak nak buat asam pedas la esok. I cebik je, jawab 'ala...Ikin tak boleh makan la mak...buat kuah singgang la...baru boleh makan'. Tapi, bila dia keluarkan sayur2 tu daripada beg plastik...I, my husband dengan abah terus jerit....'WOWWW...besarnyaaa....

Ayah I terus cakap...'kin...amik gambar...masuk dalam website ko tu'...hahahhaha...tada....
I tak pandai ambik gambar...rasanya..kat luar...bendi ni nampak lagi panjang....

Besarkan bendi ni...panjang. Baja apa la pakcik tu taruk...

The Senator's wife - Sue Miller

Would you stand by your man?
How can something so wrong feel so right?

The Senator's Wife is a novel that provokes my strong feelings and one that will leave you thinking about its characters for a long time after you've closed the cover. This is the first book I’ve read by Sue Miller, and I couldn’t read fast enough. This book was GOOD.Tapi jalan cerita dia macam buat I terfikir2, sentiasa ada je dalam kepala ...discuss the ending with my husband.Kebetulan lepas tu, tengok kat astro, Top 15 political scandals , so ...I really hate the realities.

What I can't stand is witnessing over and over again these poor wives standing next to their cheating politician husbands and gives his pathetic apology to news reporters.Why don't any of these guys have the brave to stand ALONE and face the cameras?

Come on feels no is beautiful..OK.Stand true...and faithful.

Hehe...ok..ok.. jangan emotional..hikhik. Ni pasal masa cuti banyak tengok oprah la ni...ish.
+++This book is all about

-secrets that they keep in families and across generations, horrific betrayal...even dah kena stroke , tak boleh bergerak, helpless, word-slurring pun still menggatal lagi...ish!
-This is a story of two marriages: unique and complicated.
-The two main characters (the wives) actually, walaupun tajuk dia the senator's wife.
-The story is told from the perspective of both women, Meri and Delia.

-Meri (I hate this character)newly married to nathan who is extremely immature-struggling with her new status and place in life. Move into a new house,and quickly build a friendship with their neighbor, Delia Naughton (the senator's wife).
-When she gives birth, her struggle with the baby.

-The other woman,Delia is a survivor (kalau depan mata dah marah2 dah dia ni) of a long-standing marriage
-Though she is married to a famous senator, Tom Naughton, Delia lives alone.Separated from but still married to the famous senator, Tom Naughton, who has had affair after affair after affair...endlessly...
-Buku ni banyak flashback the moment Delia discovered Tom's most unforgivable affair, a romance with their daughter's close friend..and other women...other women...other women...never ending scandals.
-Finally, TOM can’t help himself. When he has a stroke...
-Delia who accepts him back into her life....what??
-Delia persists; taking pleasure in the quiet nak jaga husband dia...

In the end everyone gets what they deserve...

...catch-your-breath ending....

But of course, nothing can last. I gasped a bit when Delia found TOM and MERI....
I taknak reveal the ending...spoil je u all nak baca nanti.

**Other part yang I tak suka dalam buku ni, has the most graphic description of childbirth I’ve ever encountered and pages and pages about pregnancy ...but it's too much...I felt a little overburdened by this level of..explaination.

Why stay with someone who can’t stay faithful?

Quick Diary...take a break.

In the past week I’ve finally settled back into some sort of routine.I have also had to re-evaluate my daily tasks.

No more siap2 nak pergi kerja...or driving.Sekurang2nya...sebulan ni la.

Everyday I mesti buat '3- min jumpstart the day routine' to make sure tak boring sangat.Slow-start routine...hmmmm...Here's how my ideal Jumpstart morning routine goes: Outlines the routine, go through every day to-do-list to start my day on the right foot. I did (yesterday to-do-list) :

I'm feeling very accomplished! Yay me!

Pening baca buku berat2 ni...hihi.Boring...makan bubur, tapi takleh makan cili padi. Ish..ish... Quick..quick...somebody...cheer me up.

I love receiving parcels...this totally cheered me up. Senyum sampai ke telinga.

How my husband makes me happy??Belikan magazine macam2..and my all time favourite board game - 'SAIDINA' 2 kali main...menang besar je...haha.

What else .... got new kits from my hb for my 'secret project'.

Pass few days was really a movie marathon days for me.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button .

"I was born under unusual circumstances." And so begins "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: a man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story, set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man's life can be.

There comes a moment ... Ah, I’m gonna sob my eyes out at the end of this, aren’t I?And you will. Well, I did, anyway.

Slumdog Millionaire is a 2008 British film directed by Danny Boyle, written by Simon Beaufoy, and co-directed in India by Loveleen Tandan.[2] It is an adaptation of the Boeke Prize-winning and Commonwealth Writers' Prize-nominated novel Q & A (2005) by Indian author and diplomat Vikas Swarup.

I love this scene...really...
Its more like i'm in the scenes seeing the 'real' life.
Coming soon....Plan to watch

It's a great achievements....

+++untuk orang yang tengah cuti sakit sebulan...tak boleh keluar pergi mana2.Haha...kira great achievements la..
Boring..boring.. Lepas seminggu operation...I terfikir, how should i reward myself for my achievements previously..hmm?? thinking...thinking..Oh yess...I'm going to buy a new handbag or 'shopping bag'...'ONLINE SHOPPING' la...apa lagi. ye la , tak boleh keluar mana2 kan.
ONLINE SHOPPING ADDICTION.I've got the shopping bug. It attacked me by some great purchases last two months and now my mind is reeling with the possibilities again... ++my husband should stop reading now++..seriously...

I dah lama admire Longchamp Tote.Memang tengah kumpul duit nak beli...tapi tak beli2 sampai sekarang. la tengah berjimat cermat nak masuk rumah hujung tahun ni.I dah ada satu beg make up, and satu small bag longchamp...itupun hadiah ...bukan beli sendiri pun...suka..sangat...simple and casual.Longchamp tote...kenapa suka sangat ??PRACTICALITY .

This is a great travel bag / shopping bag, it is big but not so big .It's the perfect size when you need to carry all your entertaining and comfort needs , this bag is great for shopping-you can fit telekung in there.

So...bila cari2...beg yang ala2 longchamp tote...i terjumpa satu..minat sangat...sebab nampak casual. Combination good quality canvas and leather. The price..tak mahal sangat...but still takde la murah sangat pun...heheheJust got my parcel this morning and its excellent....Walaupun satu beg je, tapi sebab tak dapat keluar mana2, takdapat nak buat kerja berat2 kan.. I am thrilled with what I got! Sooo pleased.

Hmmm...apa lagi ye...I buat hari ni?Habiskan baca buku2 Sophie Kinsella...Jalan2 dalam internet...cari resepi menarik, customize the recipes..and berazam nak masak after sihat nanti.

PS: Kak Ita...Longchamp kat UK murah tak? Hehehehehe....Or anyone??
