I am an expat wife and I'm still baking! - Fruity Cookie

This is really not good... Its been a while since i last used my lappy,.. do u know that i had to stare at the keyboard for a good 2 minutes looking for the exclamation mark! grrrr

Assalamualaikum everyone.... am sure by now everyone knows that we have moved to Kuala Lumpur... its been more than 6 months and we are settling in well here... Alhamdulillah .. honestly moving to Malaysia was not what i anticipated it wud be... i thought maybe someday when we do move out of Singapore it would be to a country where there are four seasons hahaha - a woman can only dream ... oh well.. maybe someday but for now ... we will be here.. in the land of Nasi Lemak singgit hahaha 

Anyway long story short... three months after hubs took up this new job posting... we packed our things and moved here... was it a difficult decision?  YES... it took me weeks to finally say Yes ... all i can say now... i am glad we did it!

Alright i will stop now...  i made a promise to hubs that i will try to update my blog at least once a month... he said... u shud start blogging again Rima... thats where it all started....
