Family Favourites....Home baked. Pt 1

Fruit Pastry

Banana Cake

Chicken Bun

Mini Pizza

Apple Pie


London Almond cookies my style

I love trying out new receipes which look delicious but simple to make with easy to find ingredients. Not all the receipes I tried turn out well. I know its good if the kids loves the end products but if they just took a piece, well either daddy and mummy have to finish the whole tray or after a few days if still no takers it will go right into the bin.

But I will always keep on trying out new ones.

Above are some of the receipes that I've tried which I learned from the cookery/baking classes I took on some weekends and some I got from the internet. Will update more pictures if time permits.

Bad mother...?

Been crying my eyes out thinking about what might have been. Where did I go wrong. Have been doing my best in trying to be a good mother. Eversince there were babies I did all I thought was the right thing to do. I don't know how to put my feelings into words but let God be the judge. I feel so physcially and mentally exhausted as of now.

Have been in the down mode since yesterday. Dear Lord, Please show me the right way. Amen.

'Am I a bad mother?'

Am I a bad mother? Been asking myself eversince. I just read a status in a friend's FB where she published a result slip of her daughter's recent major examination. Well, her daughter got straight As or why else would she published it in her FB. And one of the comment by her friend was ' You're a good mother'! Is that implying that those whose children doesn't have strings of As are bad mothers. You tell me!

My daughter had also sat for this exam but her result is not that outstanding even though she passed. I thank God for that. I was quite disappointed no doubt but she did her best and that's her best. Doesn't mean that if you can't score strings of As you won't be successful in life in future. Cos a lot of those average students are more successful and outstanding later in life. You can't judge a person from his examination results or strings of As in their younger years. Some children matured later than others. We heard a lot of stories about from rags to riches.

I pray that my children will be successful in their adult life and make me proud of them. I love my children very much even if they are just average students. They are the love of my life.

1st August 2011

This year we celebrated our anniversary dinner at Calvery Restaurant and Lounge. Nice place but I can't really take too much meat and so did the kids and sayang. The meat was great and salad too, lots of varities. I wished there were more choices for desserts. For someone with a sweet tooth (plus the kids) we were looking forward to desserts but unfortunately the varity was very limited. Well, its fun anyway trying new eating places. But my most favourite dessert station is at Puzzle, Pullman. Cheese cakes, chocolate cakes and all those havenly,yummy cakes. We can't get enough. another time.....


It has been a long time since I last wrote in this blog. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

As the title implies time is really changing for our family, for the better I hope. Since I got married years ago most of my life I have been pampered. Even when the kids started school most of the chauffeuring to and fro schools had been done by my sayang, except when he's at work. I don't have to brave through the traffic jam at peak hours. But now since my sayang have to be away on travelling most of the time I have to take over the job. Its tough but dear Lord give me the strenght. I used to dread driving during peak hours when there will be messive traffic jam but now I don't have any choice.

Another thing is sayang has never been away from me for more than 2 days even then I always felt so alone and missed him a lot. The 1st time he was away for more than 1 week was about 2 weeks ago and you can imagined how much alone I felt not mentioning about missing him. All those new changes started when he was promoted. It was a blessing for he has been hoping for a job change which was long overdue. But for every success story there must be a sacrifice.

The kids missed him so much cos without him around the house seem pretty quiet.This week he is away again for another week. Well, I have to get used to the changes that is coming our ways. And I pray to God that he will always be with us where ever we are.

Valentine was here again...and gone...same all thing. Memories of yesteryears came flowing back. Missed those bouquet of peach colour roses..wished I could have it again..but the passed remained the passed no turning back. I can still remember how my heart fluttered with excitement when I saw those beautiful peach colour roses. I wished those fresh roses could last forever but nay they wilted after some times. This is one of the most beautiful moment that I ever experience in life. Although it was only roses but to me it meant a lot.
