Baked Macaroni with Tuna


Oh no no no... Today is not the 31st August, but today is the 27th November, 2012... the last day for my son to be a school boy. He sat for his last SPM paper today.

Last Saturday, when I was ironing his last two pairs of school uniform, I felt sad... thinking that it will be the second last time I will be ironing his uniforms. I will be ironing the last pair when he goes to school for the result but that will be next year, In Sha ALLAH.

And this morning and evening, again I felt the same, when sending him to school and fetching him home. When we left the school, I drove slowly and even looked back to see the school. I guess it is because I had been doing the same routine for the past 5 years and it's not that easy to just let it go.

Well, looking on the bright side... I no longer have to be like a thief to watch TV. Normally I will lock my bedroom door and put on a low volume to avoid my son from 'keeping me company' in front of the TV. So just now, I watched one after another programme, from Merlin to Kung Fu Panda! Hahahahaha... When I told my sister about this, she just said,"I am really confused! Who had just sat for SPM? You or your son?" Ahahahaha... macamlah tak biasa... mama kan selalu over!!!!


Syahmi had 3 sets of papers for Biology. So he had to stay back after the second paper as it is just a short interval. So I sent him lunch at 12.30 pm just now. He requested for Burgers. Besides the burger, I had tried something new today, and that was among his lunch menu today. And my son had shared the small portion with his friends. Oh how sweet.

Thank you to Kuchai for sharing this simple and yummy recipe with us. It doesn't take long to prepare and I love the taste.....

    1. Hello Sally.

  4. Hi my dearest,anak punya exam.... mak belajar, mak kang cheong, mak yang risau... hehehe biasa lah. And the children cool only!!

    Your baked macaroni sure look very tempting and appetizing. Lovely picture.
    Next time I must come early bawak tupperware lah. LOL

    Have a nice day. With hugs and kisses.

    1. Betullah like you said. The anak yang nak sit for the exam, the parents yang risau sampai bp boleh naik! Hahaha... For me, I had to sacrifice myself from watching TV, sitting in front of the internet and any sorts of entertainment. Otherwise nanti dia datang nak 'keep me company'. Sakit kepala ooo if he's not studying. Dia nak pi exam in the morning, the mom dup dap dup dap at home tau!

      Now we are just praying for the best la... I think I've done my part. So I have nothing to regret... mmmmm
