Chicken Soto


Last weekend, we were busy with Jom Raya activity.

1. Thank you to Kak Zuraidah aka Kak Lazni for the invite. She is my hubby's schoolmate and my senior. *wink* Her big table was full of food prepared by Kak Lazni herself. They were all delicious.
2. Thank you to Ida for inviting us to her lovely condo. But we didn't actually dine at her condo but the condo next door aka her 'second house'. Thank you for the lovely time spent with our kuncu-kuncu. So happening, only thing, we miss one of our good buddies right....
3. Thank you to Zai and her hubby Mr Aziz for having us last Saturday night. We enjoyed the chat, and I didn't realised it was raining outside. Infact it rained and stopped twice!!! Hahaha....
4. On Sunday, Ida Bakery and family came by our place. We had a lovely time with such sporting guests as Ida's family. I am very comfortable if my guests are such a sport as them. Thank you for coming and tasting all my cookies and food. Jangan serik datang lagi ye!

But the person that I must really thank is my dearest darling hubby. He is such a sport. He is always willing to go to friends' houses, be it my friends or his. Many of my friends, the hubby is not that willing to go with them to the wife's friend's house. I think I am just the lucky one...
