I know.. I'm slacking big time.. no time to blog on daily basis.. been going out for iftar.. we had iftar in a thai restaurant.. we had iftar in a turkish restaurant.. we had seafood for iftar, western for iftar and yesterday we had iftar by the pool in an indian restaurant.. i baked every day tho.. either right after subuh or after isyak.. thank goodness its "the time of the month" or i will not be able to get all things done! Today i'm home alone... every ramadhan there is one day where hb will take all the maintenance guys (abt 30 ppl fm PUB) for iftar.. Hairi on the other hand has gone to his ORD dinner and dance..
Two days ago we were in JB to get some stuff and while we were there.. i took the chance to go to one of the ramadhan bazaars.. just to.. ya know.. buy some food and kuih to take home.. i was surprised on how cheap and delish their kuih was.. i didnt wanna buy lots for fear it may not be as delish as it looked.. well i was wrong.. so very wrong.. the next time.. ahakss if hb agrees to take leave and brave the bad traffic.. i will definately buy it again fm the same place!
