Two to go - Steamed bolu pandan gulung and Steamed bolu chocolate gulung

Oh what a wonderful Tuesday.. the weather is cooling and here i am sitting right next to my balcony with cold air blowing and a hot cuppa to go along - err pls dont imagine all the nice things cos really if u wanna know the real fact.. I am NOT sitting here alone.. there is this tiny gremlin next to me that is talking non stop and the best part.. both of us hv not showered yet muahahahaha.. so hows everyone? i know i hv not "talked" alot lately.. i am not too sure why but sometimes u just need a little break.. i hv been taking orders on weekly basis.. not on a big scale of cos.. i limit it to maybe two orders a week.. enough to keep me occupied... my store is now running on its own too.. Alhamdullilah... ty everyone for the support!

Yesterday was a little rough for me..i wasnt in my best mood.. i got agitated at just abt anything under the sun.. most probably cos i started my day reading something which riled me up.. sometimes u just cant help but wonder how some young women (if you can call them that) today think or how they were brought up?? Where are their manners and where is their respect?? i am not saying that i am a super uber good mother but i try to gv my children the best there is and to teach them well eventho at times i wish i cud hv done better.. you know.. lots of IF.. IF.. IF.. sigh

Anyway that was yesterdays story and i am not gonna go down the same shitty route again.. on a lighter note.. it was my little sis' bday yesterday.. so was it the day where the Germans celebrated their Unity day.. we were invited to their ceremony by the Ambassador and this year it was held at Marina@Kappel Bay.. every single year we will go to the function for a reason that i dont even understand lol.. hes an Austrian and come rain or shine he will make an effort to go to the German Unity celebration .. "shrug". It was a short thang.. we usually will dress nicely, listen to a short speech.. talk to a few ppl.. had to listen to the Singapore national antherm and to the German national anthem.. munch on bread (eventho they serve a full array of German food aka Bratwurts .. eekks) bid our farewell to a few ppl and drive home as quickly as possible.. why u may ask? cos by the time we're done, our stomach was playing all sorts of music! hahaha
