2012 Eid pics...

Tell me: When was the last time that i sat down and pinned my thoughts?? ohh myyy .. i miss my "me" time in the afternoon.. I miss my "me" time in the kitchen and most of all.. i miss my "me" time with my thoughts... hows everyone doing?? hope u guys had a wonderful long weekend and to my muslim friends fm all over.. hope u guys ate lots! I lost like 8kg in total and am hoping to lose another 5kg.. once i've hit home run i will let u girls know muahaha

We got home fm Vietnam to a flooded home.. it was raining so so heavily while we were in Vietnam and with Hairi working full time.. there was no one at home to monitor the situation.. he only found out that the house was flooded after iftar and called us immediately to let us know.. when we got home the second and third level of our house was all wet.. carpets were soaked and we had to throw away two carpets cos they were damaged.. we later had to clean the walls cos the water seems to have seeped into the walls too.. sighh.. hubs helped me clean our place and on the very next day out of the blue my life got busier and busier.. i didnt hv much time on hand.. i had to clean our place.. wash the curtains.. wash floor mats.. toilet mats etc etc etc.. once done i had to start baking Eid cookies for mom.. to me nothing was much more important than to make sure she has all the goodies that i had planned to bake.. Alhamdullilah.. i managed to bake all of em..

I also managed to bake 30 lapis legit for my customers within one and half weeks and am so so blessed to be given the strength and health during that period of time.. hubs took a few days leave to keep Sonia occupied.. they went to watch a movie and went to the indoor playground.. i was focused and hardly had any time to do anything else except to view a few houses (since we are moving end Sept).. for a change i also couldnt be bothered to do Eid shopping and only went to the ramadhan bazaar once.. it was a one and half crazy weeks but I DID IT..

Dont ask me how i am getting on right now cos i am super kaput hahaha... its taking a toll on me and am resting well... of cos each time i see butter and eggs i feel like baking but i keep on telling myself that i shud rest and hopefully in a few days time i am able to share a few new recipes that i have wanted to bake since last month..

So ok.. am sharing a few pics that were taken during the first and second day of Eid.. we had a blast and to see everyone smiling and talking to one another is a blessing..

My little Sonia with her fav purple baju kurung..

Arghhhh the face of a tired woman :o(

Love this shot! ty hubs for capturing this moment..

Right after sholat, Hairi went back to sleep and we had taken pics without him... the moment he woke up.. we managed to take a family pic in our blue attire..

They look kinda similar.. eyes, nose and mouth.. hmmm

"Hehehe u shud use this mustache to school Brian so that ur students will run as soon as u enter the school hahaha" - Moms first guest.. my cousin.. sis Nasyita and family..

Eid goodies... yes i baked 98% of em! she had lapis cempedak, lapis legit spekkeok, lapis mandarin mascovis, kek kukus, marble nutella and also caramel cake.. for cookies she had nastar, sugi, congo bars, brownie cookies, almost famous amos, rainbow cats tongue, cappuccino sticks, almond london, cashew nuts makmur and of cos macs.. she also had double chocolate whoopie pie and also red velvet whoopie pie which was a big hit :op

Salam lebaran to you and family Rima. What lovely Eid pictures of your family. I am one of ur silent reader from MA, US. Home for the summer but sadly besok dah nak balik. I can't say how much i appreciate you sharing your wealth of knowledge in baking and all the recipes. I baked your prune lapis n it turned out nice. 1st day of eid dah licin. Actually while typing this i have one baking in the oven! Also i went to TOTT - love that place - if u get a chance to visit the US i will recommend you to head for a Williams-Sonoma store.
Terima kasih again Rima - keep on baking!
