::sal's comment and ajax's philosophy::

i remembered salhana's comments on my new blog..

"weh, banyak nye recipe.."

and the comment that i like most is...

"weh, blog pun ada preamble ke? ingat kontrak ke apa?"

haha.. and my reply was..

"kata engineer.."

thanx anyway sal..

well, me is me.. i am a crazy blogger, influenced by a principle from a friend of mine - ajax.. he once wrote..

"blogging is like singing.. if u want to blog, blog nicely.."

nice one ajax! typical "artist/performer" nyer statement..

okay all.. till then.. bubbye!

::vege rice porridge::

if u find ur baby is kinda picky when it comes to rice, why not try this recipe.. it works for afiq and adib.. the key ingredient is bayam merah.. this is how afiq nd adib enjoy their porridge..

Vege rice porridge
bayam merah

1. cook everything together
2. blend it in food processor..
3. serve warm

variations :
u can add in whatever vege that ur child enjoys. among that u can try - pumpkin, potato.. pumpkin and corn is a great combination for a variety.. u can add up some meat if u want..

::mommy - drowsy::

today, afiq made mommy feel a tad drowsy.. he kept on waking up in the middle of the night with loud cries.. (not once.. twice at least.. i lost count how many times!) it has been a week like this.. aiyak.. i guess because he's teething his third and forth teeth..

adib was in no good mood during the day.. he slept almost all day long.. ''poo poo'' a lot too.. i thought maybe i tersilap bagi makan.. then my maid cakap, kalau kat kampung, it's a sign of the baby acquiring new skills.. perhaps, it's true.. because for the past few days, adib has been angkat2 punggung.. maybe he's about to crawl, or learn how to sit.. he now babbles a lot.. so do afiq.. mamamammamamamama.. and keep on playing with his mouth.. dok sembur2..

anyway, we had a nice weekend this week.. my kitchen tak berasap pun, except for the boys' porridge.. tu pun maid masak.. mommy and daddy is so so tired.. we were travelling to and fro seremban on the same day, and afiq kept his daddy awake for 2 hours from 3 to 5.15am.. (while mommy was fast asleep.. hehe.. sorry abang..) (i did make it up anyway, as yesterday i bangun jaga afiq..)

since dapur tak berasap yesterday, daddy went out to fetch his lunch.. (i was ok with maggi).. he brought some McD and sundae for us.. while i was having my sundae, i realize that adib is watching me with full of interest.. haha.. i know.. he's aiming at my sundae.. i gave him some to taste.. he chap chap chap.. then i tried to offer him somemore, he terus bukak mulut widely.. now, mommy knows who ask for icecream when both of u were in my tummy.. (i had big cravings for icecream during my pregnancy period.. ) he kept looking at me, asking for more.. and i know i had to stop.. afiq on the other hand, was actively asking for some bread from daddy.. i managed to snap a pic of him sneaking at daddy's burger.. so we fed both of them with bread as well.. (my bro said, adib could finish off a piece of bread.. mat saleh gak taste anak2 aku nih) afiq didn't enjoy the icecream though..

talking about food.. afiq and adib is not a big fan of fish.. i've tried at least twice.. skali tuh i masak porridge with ikan tenggiri, they didn't like it.. another time, i tried to feed them with anchovies, and they just turned away from food.. jadi cik tong nyer habuan.. so it surprised me yesterday when afiq and adib didn't resist bila i saja2 feed them with the ikan kembung goreng kicap.. haha.. now mommy knows your taste.. (they've been on vege a lot..) their favourites - carrots, bayam merah, jagung, labu..

owh, big reunion with hubby's ex uni mates this coming may.. i have to start thinking of what to cook for that function.. nanti la mommy pk.. tarak masa kalu, order la gamaknya.. haha.. (dasar pemalas..) okay la all.. take good care.. stop here dulu.. till the fingers meet the keyboard again.. bubbye!

::Mashed Papaya and Mango::

afiq and adib enjoy this simple healthy dessert.. normally made by their atuk.. would like to share and spread the love with others as well..

Mashed Papaya and Mango
3 small cube of papaya
1 small cube of sweet mango

1. mashed together these two items.
2. serve immediately.

::vanilla custard for babies::

my boys enjoy to indulge some desserts especially in the evening.. this is one of their favourites.. i used to buy vanilla custard for babies in jars.. (i still buy the jars anyway.. it's so handy during emergency) oneday, i came accross some yummy dessert recipes for babies, and made some alteration to suit my babies' taste bud.. for those with babies, give a shot and see how ur babies will enjoy it..

Vanilla Custard for Babies
100ml formula milk
2-3 scoops of rice cereal
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp sugar
1tsp corn flour

1. mix everything in a bowl/pan
2. heat on stove/microwave on high for 1-2 minutes till thicken
3. if u find the texture curdles, sieve it through..
4. serve warm.. (take extra caution.. it may be too warm.. takut ter'burn' ur baby's tongue)

::plans ahead::

hari nih actually i have tonnes of work.. but then, i still nak update my blog..

afiq and adib slept pretty well yesterday night though afiq woke up pretty early this morning, and still awake till i sent him and adib to mom's.. alhamdulillah, since mommy didn't feel so good.. guess tersilap makan somewhere masa gie meeting kat negeri 9..

we have lotsa thing coming up this month.. we'll head back for my grandmom's house this saturday.. she's hosting a kenduri doa selamat.. she'll be off performing umrah upcoming may.. we're heading to kuantan the other weekend for hubby's family day.. we're looking for abah's 56th birthday on the 22nd.. other than that, i can't wait for august to come.. the boys will turn one, and we're going off somewhere!! wheeeee!! thanx to airasia, now everyone can fly! plenty of plans ahead, hope that everything will turned out fine..

i'm searching for some free time to have my monthly massage.. i really need one la.. so letih n tak larat lately.. mmg la.. kak ani (my tukang urut) dah msg me dah.. now i tabik spring to all working moms out there.. letih woo.. (that does not mean fulltime mommy tak de keje ok.. sama jek penatnya..)

ok la all.. i nak blog off.. nak smabung kelije gua yang bertimbun2.. wokeh.. take care.. bubby.. zai jian!

:: preamble ::

this is my first posting in my brand new blog.. hello to all.. already had one, in my friendster account.. had plenty of entries in it & it means a lot to me.. ada sentimental value gitu..

i haven't really decide on what shall i write in this blog.. but i think, it's gonna be about everything that take place in my life, be it bitter.. be it sweet.. will try to make this blog for good use..

so since, this is my preamble to my brand new blog.. let me begin by introducing myself to you (macam la ada yang nak berkenalan pun?!) am a 27 year old (not yet 28) lady married to a wonderful husband, mommy to a set of twin boys, 8 months old - afiq hazman and adib hazim, who juggles between career and family.. working for the people at a comfortable fee..

received my very first education back in tadika st ronan, a humble kindergarten in setapak, kl.. primary school was in srk taman melawati, secondary school in sm taman melawati till form 3.. after receiving my pmr result, i shifted to SBP - sm sains sgor, bandar tun razak cheras.. after much deliberation, i decided to pursue my degree in civil engineering (instead of my initial ambition : gynaecologist/lawyer - never in my life, i regret my decision) in UTM Skudai (where i met my then bf - hubby).. love blossomed during my study years between me and him.. he was, and he is still my inspiration to seek success in life.. after 4 years of courting, he finally proposed me to be his wife.. we got engaged on oct 26, 2002 and finally tied the knot on may 31, 2003..

a month after the wed, we were flown to sydney australia (this has been one special part in our life - honeymoon + masters degree) sponsored by MARA.. we both pursued our masters in construction management but in different faculty, meaning different approach.. i love every single moment there, it was one special, precious memory for us - making us flying again and again to oz..

after a year of study, we went back with our masters degree.. coming back to msia was a hard part.. he was jobless for 3 months, and me for 6 months.. alhamdulillah, he got his job in petronas (and still in it).. meanwhile myself has landed to 2 different places..

currently, developing great interest in cooking n baking (i just love those cooking an makan-makan blog!).. have plenty of 'must visit blogs and fotopages'.. was a terrible cook before, and now progressing to beginner's level (perhaps, i should include step-by step recipe in this blog as well.. as that is how i learn how to cook.. thanx to the bloggers, not forgetting the recipe book, be it in paper based or 'live' recipe book i.e. friends & family) just love travelling to bits.. enjoy reading (though it's pretty hard lately to find time to indulge in books)

guess that's all for now.. keep on visiting for more posts.. wokeh all.. bubbye.. zai jian!
