First and foremost, a HAPPY BELATED TEACHER'S DAY to all teachers in this world...
Helped my cousin to make these cards for the teachers in her school. Actually she had asked me to google for nice wordings to be pasted on the teacher's day card she intended to do. I ended up helping her do the card instead of looking for the wordings! Hahaha... It was fun making the cards for you kak... after a long time not having the chance to play around with art. And this is my signature at the back of the card, copyright controlled..... *wink*
Last Monday, I thought of updating my blog, for the teacher's day entry, soon as I've finished doing the orders that came from ANZ, but then I got a sad news from hubby's family. One of his cousin, a former teacher, passed away. Datin Hajjah Aminah Zakaria passed away at the age of 49 after bravely fighting with the final stage cancer. May her soul rest in peace. Al-Fatihah.
I am not going to write much today. My list-to-do is still very long. So I will go straight to the recipe to share. Made these brownies for Syahmi's teachers. Besides the brownies, I had packed a chocolate chip muffin as well in the box. Thank you to all the teachers who had kindly taught my son. May all of you be blessed....
Thank you to Angie from Allrecipes for the recipe. I made a few adjustments to the recipe to suit my taste.
