9 years together...

Glitter Graphics

Syukur Alhamdullillah...today was the day when Mr Dear and I were joined in matrimony 9 years ago...Yup ! today is our 9th Wedding Anniversary.

While I was typing, I could not help it but shed some tears, of course, it was my tears of happiness for I am thankful that I've met Mr Dear, shared my love and life with him and were blessed with 3 beautiful children. He is my soulmate, my Mr. Right and the love of my life. And, like some other married couples, we too encountered difficult moments and we have had conflicts and arguments in our marriage, however, praised to Allah, here we are still happily married and with HIS permits, we hope our marriage will last forever...

But, I was also crying partly because, today, on our special day, Mr Dear is not here with me. He is now miles away on a Business trip. Anyway, My Dear, if you're reading this, I wish "us" Happy 9th Anniversary, and may our anniversary reflect all the special moments we've shared and all the wonderful moments to come...I love you.

Yong Tau Foo in Zoetermeer...

Glitter Graphics

Even though I am far away from "home", I don't believe I missed eating most of our local food, coz here I am surrounded by friends who love cooking, good at it and always happy to share. On Monday, one of my best friend, who definitely falls in the above said category, Shereen, invited us over to her house in Zoetermeer to savor her famous Yong Tau Foo. Afraid that we might not get enough of her Yong Tau Foo, she also prepared Mee Kari to please our stomach as well.
The food was yummylicious despite her "little error while preparing the food", which can happen to anyone (but seriously, I would not have notice if not for her disclosing it). Thanks Shereen for the invite and look forward to your next savouring meal.

Cerita Saturday - Part 1

Glitter Graphics

We have lived in Den Haag, to be specific, Mariahoeve for more than 6 years now. And every year we received a flyer inviting us to the International Foodfair ran by the Voluntarily Committee which is held every 3rd Saturday of November in a school building just at the end of our house's street. While close as it seems, we somehow never had the opportunity to go to this event, it was either we were buzy doing our routine groceries shopping or out sending our kids to a birthday parties.

However, this year we've made it, but for a reason...both Natasha & Alyiah being part of the Brownies and Rainbows groups, were invited to perform some songs at the event. And we've been told that this is one of their yearly activities, so as long as both of them are in the groups, we will definitely have to mark our calendar for this date and event.

Ala ala Chef gitu...

Glitter Graphics

I have been asked by a few mothers from my daughters' class to do a cooking demonstration, many times. And my answer was always not favorable. But, after series of appeals, I finally agreed to host one and 3 weeks ago we decided on the date which was today...

After taking into consideration the preparation, the time needed and the popularity of our food, I decided to cook "Nasi Lemak" with "Sambal Sotong" and "Ayam Goreng Berempah". There were 7 ladies from 6 different countries i.e. Scotland, Sweden, Belgium, Canada, England & Australia. This was my first cooking demo but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and as planned, the food turned out good (to my own expectation, of course). In addition to that, I prepared some "Jemput-jemput Udang" for them which dissappeared in no time.

And, since all the ladies and I were enjoying it, there will be another series of cooking demo and the next one will take place in mid December. This time, they requested for "Mee Kari" and "Karipap Ayam". I don't expect to have any problems cooking Mee Kari, but Karipap, hhhmmm...well, I hope Mr Dear and my 3 stooges wouldn't mind eating Karipap every weekend huhu...
