Brain Freeze

Thanks so much Noraini for both orders.

...too much ice in one berbuka puasa episode did that to me, hence the silence. I usually drown myself with buckets of cold water the moment the call for maghrib beautifully permeates the entire house. We normally leave the TV1 on just to listen for the call, whilst the rest sits at the table guarding the food as if it was going to run for its life.

Since we started to berpuasa, I haven't been the best of mum in terms of preparing extraordinary iftar spread. The kids haven't made any special requests yet except for roti bom which we conveniently packed a few from the pasar Ramadhan. To them, roti bom signifies Puasa time and to be served with that means they have conquered the very trying first day of puasa. And both of them were handsomely rewarded that first day. It was a reward for me too since I didn't have to make any kuehs.

I am scavenging my system to find the misplaced desire to cook properly this puasa time, terukkan? haih. But with all the cookies I am making, I doubt I would find it soon. And in between burnt trays of biscuits, over boiled eggs, the forgotten lid on the pot of rice and the over fried curry puffs, let's just hope I make it through the day with at least something edible placed on the table for everyone to eat. The kids haven't been complaining though, they in fact love nuggets and fries to go with their chocolate milk. They are good kids. I'm the rotten one.

8 treats:

Roti bom! Oh! I love it !!! My son pun suka roti bom jugak. Agaknya, itu trend budak zaman sekarang kut bila buka puasa? He he he

But I still nak minum Lai Ci Kang, nak makan Ikan Terubok Bakar, Paceri nanas with ikan kering, sambal tumis with petai ... huh! panjang betoi my list.

Sabar Dee! Sabar!!!
