Black pepper chicken

So many things had happened since the last time I updated this page. Chea chea chea...baik punya excuse kan! Hehehe.... Fatin was home for a 5 days homevisit since last Wednesday. When we went to pick her up, I brought these cupcakes for Fatin's best friend Farahin, for her birthday. Hope she likes it.

On Thursday, I took the kids to the cinema, just for a treat... on me! And that Thursday, I considered to be my best achievement day! Hahaha... poyo betul mama ni!

First achievement : I learnt how to go into the Golden Screen Cinema website . I was pretty excited then.
Second achievement : I drove to IOI Mall just with the kids. That was my first time driving to IOI Mall.
Third achievement : Managed to park the car at IOI Mall car park by reverse parking....Syahmi is my guide actually.. hahaha.. no tips though! Ahakss...
Fourth achievement : Clever to purchase the show tickets at the cinema
Fifth achievement : Dare to wade through the traffic jam at Puchong area.
Sixth and biggest achievement : Managed to drive home safely without taking any wrong turns! Hahaha....

Well to some, the above can't be considered as ACHIEVEMENTS but to me, they were. At least I am a step better than I was before. Bravo to me! Hahaha.....Fatin wanted to watch Harry Potter but when we reached there, it was 3.20 pm and the show had already started 20 minutes. So we had to settle for Transformers which was much enjoyed by the kids and me.

On Friday, I made these cupcakes for Ayu 's cute baby Amjad's birthday. Happy birthday big boy!

Saturday was not my day at all. I was down with headache. My blood pressure was haywire. The systolic reading was quite high while the diastolic was slightly low. It really makes me feel wobbly. That night, Fatin wanted to dine out at Chops N Steak in Puchong. I don't have the heart to say no to her though the head is throbbing. I just ate mushroom soup and a bit of french fries and a bit of onion rings. But we made the right choice to go there that night as they will be closing that outlet the next day. We like the food there and the price are very reasonable. I wish them all the best in their other outlets. Keep up the tasty quality!

Sunday, we sent Fatin back to her hostel. Stopped at the T.A.I.L.O.R shop, then went straight home. What happened at the T.A.I.L.O.R shop? InsyaAllah will write later on.... hahaha....

So that's about all, and till today, I am still trying to stabilize my blood pressure reading....
Note : Finished my Himalaya detox treatment 19th July, 2009

Recipe to share today is a recipe from one of Kak Liza's book. Don't worry, I had seek Kak Liza's permission to publish the recipe here. Though I don't really have to buy books as I can always surf her blog, but I prefer to get the whole set. Why? We can't surf the net while lying down on our bed right? And I like to flip thorough books and magazines before going to bed. And what's more, we must support Kak Liza's effort.

.....wah...dah jadi promoter tak bertauliah la pulak haaa......

Ok's the yummy recipe and very easy to give it a try...
