It’s amazing to realise how the simplest things in life could inspire you. I had a long day in the office, nearly dozed off behind the wheel. Once I reached home, went straight to my room and went totally knocked out. With baju kurung, hamis and all. Sangat penat. And yes, kerja adalah sangat menimbun (yeah, bring my work home. But to do it is a different story.. insert pathetic laugh/smirk here)
Back to the first sentence. So I was tired, sleepy and hungry. Factor in the absence of the Hubby, thus the laziness, no-mood-for-anything simply multiply. After fixing myself a simple dinner (since my parents are away, I asked the maid not to cook), I decided to watch The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (TSTP2) on HBO. And boy, my eyes were glued to the tv watching the second installment. This time the girls – Tibby, Carmen, Bridgette and Lena are all grown up and attending colleges, except for Tibby who works in a video store. For a start, I am not a fan of chic-lit, you know the damsel in distress, prince charming kinda stories. I’m all for girl power kinda thing. Heh. So, anyway the story was very heartwarming, about mending relationship, friendship and yeah, soul searching.
Maka, dengan bangganya saya mengaku, I cried watching the movie. Menangis dan selepas itu terasa sangat lega, dan terus mendapat inspirasi. To actually think that this movie was based on a fiction written for teenagers – iyelah about coming of age and everything. Haha. Ain’t I a bit too old for that? But the point is, it made me feel good afterwards. Untuk julung kalinya saya tidak tidur awal bila Hubby tiada di rumah!! Wohoo! Dan terus dapat inspirasi untuk update blog with pictures!
Adik mesti bangga dapat tahu ni. (Speaking of her, I’m sort of missing her. Sigh, Adik, when are we going to play Monopoly City against Abg Napi the self confessed Monopoly champ ni?)
Therefore, let me share with you these pictures. Nothing new, the stories accompanying the pictures were posted before anyway. 🙂
Picture was taken after representing my department in a netball game. The left index finger bent awkwardly and still is even after 3 weeks. Oh my ! Why is the finger looked stubby and chubby? It was swollen actually. Bukan gemok la! *denial* haha. Meanwhile, in the background is my right sneaker which lost it’s soul sole. There’s supposed to be a black sole underneath it, but what’s left only the white flappy thingy. Itulah, main netball 9 tahun sekali. Mana tak jadi gitu. :p
Aftermath of the Korean against Germany
No. 2. The reason behind me being RM500 poorer. Thanks to Hubby who kindly subsidised 3/4 of the cost, I am poorer by RM150 only:D. Ops, excluding the repair cost for Baba’s car. Alamak. This is the second accident in a year. And this time involving Baba”s Matrix and some unlucky penghantar suratkhabat’s BMW 5 series with plate number JFN 3*88. See the reflection on the car’s window. yup, it happened outside Alliance Bank. Something needs to be done about my relationship with Alliance Bank. Heh. Dan sampai kini tak percaya the owner works as newspaper delivery man.
The 5a.m Chicken Burger/Patties
Drew the inspiration from Ayin’s entry on homemade burgers with some tweaks and adjustments. Pardon the very low quality and amateurish pictures. Burger pun tak larat nak posing pukul 5 pagi tau! Why 5a.m? That’s the time I woke up to prepare my Hubby’s breakfast and bekal to work. Sangat bersyukur he works 15 days per month, and only 7/8 days in the morning. Kalau tidak, saya akan kelihatan seperti beruang panda di dapur setiap 5 pagi. Hehe.
The No.3 is among our effort in eating healthier, and initiates my Project Sandwiches/Burgers – to create a wholesome sandwiches ala Subway for Hubby’s lunch/brunch box. At least we know what we put in the burgers, unlike those bought from the supermarkets. Since we are also trying to conceive, jadi what goes in, matters. 🙂 It’s not exactly good to have fast food/processed food frequently. Sad to say, those kind of food are easier to prepare/cook especially in 5.am. Plus, it’s also easy to consume (read: bila makan nampak macho), on the go kind of thing, which is sangatlah sesuai untuk orang lelaki kan. With that, item no. 3 will be included in my New Year Resolution – eat and cook healthily. Expect more homemade sandwiches/burgers to come!! Notes: Is there a way to maintain the crunchiness of the veggies until it’s time to be consumed? Hubby refuses to have any in his sandwiches as he said it would be soggy and taste funny by the time he eats it. Any ideas?
Eh, do I have to put up the recipes too? 😉
Lastly, to wrap up the eat and cook healthy campaign, presenting the motto, as modeled by my 2 year old nephew, Izz Irfan
Peace out! or shall I say Peas out?
