Chocolate Chips Muffins



1. Don't educate your children to be rich.
Educate them to be HAPPY. So when they grow up they will know the value of things not the price.

2. Best award words in London...
"Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food."

3. The one who loves you will never leave you because even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he/she will find one reason to hold on.

4. There is a lot of difference between human being and being human. A few understand it.

5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage!

Mak Chu's Beef Rendang


Hello everyone. It's been long since I last update my blog. Not only it's been long since I last update, but to be honest, it's been long since I last visited my own page! The Eid mood is getting the best of me! When I've stopped doing my routine for quite sometime, it's just so hard to get back on track. Gosh I just hate that feeling. But sometimes it's beyond control, so we'll just have to accept that. Not only my routine of updating my blog has stopped, but my morning walks routine has stopped even for a longer period. I've just got to snap out of my 'so comfortable' situation now. Gotta get back on my feet. I HAVE TO... I HAVE TO!!!!

Thank you to all my visitors especially to my frequent visitors for having faith in me and for staying with me despite the lack of updates in my blog. Your continous support is very much appreciated.

Personal note to Mak Teh :

Hahaha, kita tak merajuklah Mak Teh. Just liat nak start blogging semula. Dok layan buku dan Sudoku! Hahaha... Thank you for always being there to pujuk me ya. Serba sikit, terasa macam blog ni harus diteruskan... huhuhu... felt bad tau Mak Teh. Like I've let you down ja. Thousand apologies ya...


So, how was your Eid celebrations? We had a good one alhamdulillah but not to mention a very hectic one for me. The best part is, the one that made me proud of myself, I managed to be so organised this year and I did most of the preparations by myself. It really felt good!!! I didn't know I am capable of doing what I've done. Surprise! Surprise! Hahahaha.... Sorry all, just feeling over the moon at the moment. Just ignore me okay! Hahahaha....

Anyway, guess what.... FINALLY I can confidently say to myself that I am capable of cooking tasty beef rendang. I don't need other people to say that my Beef Rendang is nice. I am happy enough when Fatin and Syahmi said, "Mom, your beef rendang is delicious!" Full stop. Made me a very happy mom and a very happy cook! #feelingpoyo#

Thank you so much Mak Chu, my dearest sister for the lovely beef rendang recipe. She is the chef in our family during Eid where else MamaFaMi will take the house cleaning section.
