What is the function of turning on hazard lights when driving? Well, it's supposed to be helpful. It should make the driver feels safer if he or she is driving slow in a rainstorm when the visibility is very low. And at the same time, alerting other drivers as well.
But yesterday evening, when hubby and me were on our way to the driving range at Kota Permai, we followed a car with hazard lights on, driving in the middle lane and the visibility was quite alright though it was pouring. She meant well by turning on the hazard lights, but what she doesn't know, she was holding back quite a long traffic behind her! The road was clear after we overtook that car!
Kak Fauziah, my neighbour gave me some lovely cempedak she brought back from her hometown last Sunday. Since I was too lazy to fry them, I decided to 'transform' the cempedak into cakes. I said to myself, just be bold, and give it a try, I'll never know the taste unless I bake and taste it myself! And alhamdulillah, I chose the right recipe. It turned out lovely to my taste. Thanks to Kak Fauziah for the cempedak and also for the feedback. Not forgetting to my loyal food tester, Saey. Thanks for the positive feedback! *wink*
