Apple, Carrot and Orange Coleslaw


Last Tuesday morning, I put up a post in Facebook, asking how to get to Hospital Kuala Lumpur via commuter from Subang Jaya. Alhamdulillah, there are a number of friends who is more than willing to help. For that, I am very thankful. I am blessed to have such wonderful and helpful circle of friends around, just like Eiffa Fourgy had said....[quote] untung mama ramai kawan.... x sesat jln...[unquote]. Thanks to Nazrina a.k.a Bunga April, Nor Aliza Abdul Aziz, Zana Abd Majid, Rahman Roslina and Eilla Zalila to name a few, for all the suggestions. And not forgetting to my dearest Sister and her Arjuna for trying their best to help! Arjunaaaa??? Ahaks... mama pun dah sengal....

We took the commuter from Subang Jaya straight to Sentul Station. And yes, I ENJOYED THE TRAIN RIDE... ahaks.. kesian tol orang tua ni.. lom grow up lagi gamaknya!. When we got down at Sentul Station, we took a cab just outside the station. When we reached the hospital, hubby paid RM12.00 and we went straight to third floor to see Abang Ngah at the ICU unit. The moment I saw him, felt like bursting into tears but knowing that the family needs to be strong, I just held back the tears. It wasn't easy! My duaa, may Allah blessed Abang Ngah with the best, only HE knows what.

After like an hour or so at the hospital, we made our way home. We waited at the taxi stand in the Hospital area and none stop for almost 10 minutes. Then we decided to walk out of the hospital area and in less than 10 minutes time, we were in the cab to the commuter station. This time, the driver had the meter on. Guess what was the fare? RM6.80 and I actually enjoyed the music that he played on his cd player. Uji Rashid songs, my favourite artist. Just count how much the first taxi driver took as his 'TIPS'. Ish... how could he? Anyway, we just make halaal for all the 'extra tips' or otherwise, he'll be giving his family something not halaal right?

Hubby and my son, seeing how happy the mama was on the ride, decided to join in the happiness! Hahaha... We all had fun, didn't we guys?! Must do more often huh? Hahaha.....


I came across this coleslaw recipe from Wendy's lovely blog and decided to give it a go. Had it with frozen Chicken Chop (Ayam Madu Brand), brown sauce (made from the brown sauce powder given by my neighbour Saerah) and fried some frozen fries to complete the menu. I just love the coleslaw. Thank you to Wendy for the simple yet lovely recipe. Allow me to share it here.

Ingredients :

2 cups thinly julienned carrots
1 red apple, cut into thin matchsticks
1 green apple, cut into thin matchsticks
1 orange, segmented
1 smallish lemon, juiced


2 heaped tablespoons mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, grated
1 heaped tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (parsley, dill or whichever combination you prefer)
1/8 teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste

Method :

1. Cut both apples into matchsticks and toss with lemon juice. Chill in fridge.
2. Slice carrots with a fruit peeler or mandolin, then julienne the slices. Cover and keep in fridge.
3. Peel orange with a knife. Cut the skin off until you see the flesh. Then run a small knife between each segment's membrane to retreive the flesh.
4. Combine ingredients for dressing, taste and adjust if needed.
5. Before serving, toss everything together and sprinkle with some extra chopped herbs.

Have a nice day!
