Hello hello hello... a very good Monday to all. Hadn't been updating my blog this long weekend because I had such a busy weekend. Now, exhausted and dreaming for a holiday by the sea or on the mountains... boley gitu?
Last Friday, Syahmi asked if he could invite his friends over, in other words, to have an open house. Since he had never asked this before, the father and I agreed. I thought many would turn up, but only 8 came. So we decided to invite our neighbours as well. Unofficially, I had an open house last Friday! We had a lovely time with our friendly neighbours. Thanks all for coming. I do hope all of you enjoyed the dishes as much as I enjoyed preparing them.
On Saturday, we made a day trip to Segamat to attend my cousin, Zuraida's wedding. Congratulations Ida and Najib. Here wishing both of you a life of happiness, cheer, love, laughs, and good times. Amin.
On Sunday, we went to a friend's open house in Desa Pinggiran. We were with them back then in Sri Lanka. And from there, we went to Bukit Mahkota to another friend's house and stayed there till late. Both the hubbys, will have a never ending story when they both meet, once in a while.
While we were there, I received a sad news. My Ayah Long passed away peacefully. May his soul rest in peace. Al-Fatihah...
Just because I had told Kak Ana, my neighbour, that I am going to cook sambal sotong dalam tin as one of the open house menu, I was determined to look for the Rex Cuttlefish, by hook or by crook. I went to more than 5 shops to look for this fella. Allah had mercy on me, finally I found it at one of the groceries shops and for a price to pay. The funny thing is, whenever I don't feel like buying it, it's always there, nicely arranged on the racks of the shops that I normally go but when I want it, it's just so hard to be found! Haish.....
