I received another two awards. This time they are from Sweet Eiyda all the way from Dubai. Thank you so much Eiyda for your thoughts..... mmm speaking of Dubai, I can still remember the heat, when we were there that time. It was unbearably hot! I guess, we've landed there at the wrong time!

Rules for this award will be...

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
THIS AWARD WAS GIVEN TO ME BY EIYDA . Thank you so much Eiyda...

2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
Since I have not been blog hopping much these days, I hardly discover the new ones. So I guess it's fair enough for me to award it to my visitors whom I treasured very much. Please feel free to accept this humble gift from me....

Another lovely surprise just popped into my mailbox yesterday.... this time, all the way from Nederland. Thank you so much Sweet Muna for all your surprises... you've made my day!

Grilled Lemon-Rosemary Chicken

Last 21st June, 2009 was Father's Day. Though it has already past, let me just wish all the fathers a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY. Better late than never. But to me, everyday is Father's Day because I am sure, everyday we'll love our dad more and more, right.

Though abah is no longer with us, I still feel his presence, his love and the memories will stay fresh forever in my heart. My abah is the best in the world. He's so loving, so gentle, so caring, so soft spoken and he has the heart of a gold. At times when I am baking alone in the kitchen, I feel as if he's there with me, accompanying me as he used to do before. Abah likes to stay in the kitchen when he knows that I am up to something. He'll sit patiently at the kitchen table, watching me 'playing' around with the flour and will wait until the end result is produced and served to him. I really miss all those good ol' times. I am sure, if he's still with us, I won't be loosing my 'semangat' like what I am experiencing now....... Miss you abah.... miss you oh so dearly.......

Latest update on the tailor... Yesterday, on the way back from Subang Parade, we dropped by the tailor's shop. The last time we went, he had asked for another 3 days. We gave him more than a week. I didn't even bother to get out of the car this time! And as I well predicted, dearest hubby came back empty handed! I felt sorry for him...

In the previous entry, some had suggested me to call first before paying him a visit. How can I do so when the number he gave was someone else's number. Another had said, keep bothering him until he get bored seeing our face.... Well I think that won't work with this guy! He'll 'selamba-ly' makes promises after promises. Once hubby had said, maybe he has the intention of getting away with our money and material. He'll keep doing this until we're fed up and will just leave him alone.... I said to myself, maybe because hubby is soft with him. What if hubby has that 'Ah Long' look... I bet he'll work night and day to get the trousers done!!!

Oh God help me...

D.A.A.L.I.A came over to my place last Saturday to collect her chocolates. And see what she brought for me???

Yummy looking isn't it? How lucky I am to be appointed as her Black Forest Cake tester! Hahaha... Thanks Lea for the cake.... kalau nak suruh test apa-apa lagi...anto ler yek.... daku sedia berkhidmat! Muahahaha....

Okay, enough of my 'luahan rasa', we'll move on to the recipe to share today. Tried this chicken recipe when Fatin was at home during the school holidays. The way she eats, just makes me hungry. She has the same 'talent' as my mom. Whenever she eats, we feel like eating as well! Sorry, the photo is not so tempting as I was in a hurry. And other reason is, I don't know how to make a better presentation! That's the truth! Hahaha...

Source :


4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons, fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon, fresh rosemary, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Method :

Place chicken breasts in a shallow glass dish or resealable plastic bag. Combine rosemary, garlic, black pepper, olive oil, and salt in a small bowl. Pour mixture onto chicken, cover or seal, and place in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Place chicken breast on a lightly oiled grill rack and allow to cook for 7 minutes per side. When chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear, remove from heat and serve.

Take care everyone!

Cerita 3 Bab


In case you don't know, I was on a 'no-rice diet' for a month, for the whole of May to be precise. Alhamdulillah I managed to fulfill my mission. It wasn't easy I tell you, especially during the first week. Imagine, you are the one preparing the meals and rice. Then you have to sit at the same table but only to watch others enjoying their rice! You have to make do with bread or cereals or quaker oats! Being an Asian, that does not help at all! But since MamaFaMi loves challenges and she had boldly accepted HER OWN challenge, so by hook or by crook, she has to go for it... hahaha...bolehlah eksen cakap cam ni sebab dah berjaya kannnn... ahakss...

Okay mama, enough blabbering... we want to know the result!
The result? Well, sorry to disappoint all of you... but MamaFaMi still can't wear Kebaya and she's not even close to that size! She's still a size 50! Hahaha... but that never puts me off. Maybe a 'no-rice-diet' on it's own is just not the right way for me to loose weight. It has to go with excercise as well and yes, I didn't do it. Challenge myself again? Hmmm... not in this near future.... hahaha.....

Okay Lee Lin , I hope this answers your question ya... don't worry, mama tak ngelat tau, janji tetap janji... hihihi....


Let's forget about food, just for this entry okay. I'd like to post the award given to me via my comment column by Datin El quite sometime back. Thank you dear.


Last May, we sent 4 pieces of trousers material to a tailor somewhere in USJ. Hubby had kindly paid more than half the amount. He said he purposely paid more with hope that this guy will sew the trousers at good time. After the promised date of 3 weeks, we went to collect the trousers but the tailor said they're not ready just yet and had asked for another week. So yes, we gave him another week. Still not ready. Everytime we went there, he'd say the button holes are not ready. After another 2 trips there, he finally told us that he had sent the materials to another tailor to sew them and they still haven't come back! Why must he lie? Why can't he just tell us the truth instead of us having to travel all the way there and not only once, twice or trice... I think it had been more than 5 times! I lost count!! We wasted our time and fuel going that side for nothing! My patience has it's limit. After the third visit, when I followed hubby to the shop, I will stop a few shops away from his shop as I am afraid my blood will go upstairs!!! And gosh, I thought I have loads of patience!!!!

But what surprises me is hubby's patience towards this guy! After all these trips and all the tailor's lies, hubby can still take it where else I am boiling inside! Now let me ask you guys a question, if you were in our position, what will you do?

Thank you....
...perghhhhh lega giler dah ni... dah luah perasaan geram yang terbuku!

Egg on Toast

Okay, here's the continuation of yesterday's bread story....

Once upon a time, there was a lady, named MamaFaMi who has a lot of house chores to do, but will always steal time to be infront of her laptop to visit her cyber friends' blogs. And that explains why her house is always in the state of tongkang pecah! Luckily the family doesn't have to suffer from hunger due to her excessive diverted attention from her responsibilities. Hahaha.... ...hok aloh, teruk sangat pulak bunyiknya ye... hihii...

One day, she came across Mamasya's Fotopage . She fell in love with the Egg in Toast, and especially because of the colorful bread. Mamasya is a Malaysian staying in Brunei. How on earth is MamaFami who is now staying in Malaysia, going to get hold of the colorful bread? Then she remembered a bread book that she had bought ages ago and flipped through the pages. She came across the sandwich loaf recipe and without further ado, decided to try out the recipe and at the same time, tried to bake a colorful bread. And walla...she did it... With that bread, on the same day, she made her Egg in Toast. She shared the toast with her dearest husband and they live happily every after......... the end....

EGG IN TOAST (or as some may call Egg in the Basket)
Source :
Mummy Jam

Ingredients :

2 slices of bread
1 piece of cheese
1 egg
a little knob of butter

Method :

1. Using a cookie cutter, cut the middle of 1 slice of bread.
2. Divide the 1 piece of cheese into 4 strips.
3. Place the (uncut) slice of bread on toaster tray. Line the strips of cheese on top the 4 sides of bread. Stack the other slice of bread (the one with the cut-out shape) on top. Press the sides a little.
4. Gently, break the egg into the centre cut square. Put a little butter on the yolk.
5. Toast for about 10 minutes, done! Add some white or black pepper if you like.

Warmest regards,
