  1. Hello MamaFami, I was at Zaitgha's place admiring her kitchen noticed your callsign and being a busybody as always popped in here.
    Wow! Your chocolate cake looks simply divine!
    MamaFami, please take this as a compliment, but women like you, Zaitgha are very dangerous where bachelors are concerned.
    One bite of your cake, its game over, he loses his Bachelor's degree and you gain gain your Master's, ha ha.
    And THAT is how I...a confirmed bachelor those days got caught like an haruan in a net.
    I had many girlfriends (as posted in my many blog cheritas) but this one did not play fair! She cooked and baked and invited me home. And before that she didn't know how to cook too! But enlisted her Malay and Nonya friends and mother on a 3 months crash course.
    Needless to say, she made many mothers sad, many girls unhappy (all my girlfriends) as I fell for her. AND! Married her!
    But still not too sure whether it was her cooking or her. Arhaaa ha ha.
    You have a nice day, MamaFami. Best regards, Lee.
    ps, Allow me to say this, I have yet to meet a woman who is not beautiful who makes cakes.
    And again, when a beautiful womam makes cakes, one can bet it is made purely from love and tastes Heavenly. L.
