Hi there… I know its been awhile…. been very busy for the last 2 months… apa tak nya… we decided to move house 3 weeks before flying off to Malaysia and the kids still having exam at that time…so… guess who has to do all the packing and cleaning of the new and old apartment….. sapa lagi…ME, ME and ME he he he.
Actually we did not plan to move from our old apartment at all…we loved that apartment but after visiting our Indonesian neighbour who just moved to their new apartment… we decided to move…. The new apartment is very close to the school, so I do not have to drive them to school anymore… they can just walk to school… a big relief for me as the traffic around the school is crazy!
Malaysia trip was good… manage to tick most of the boxes… especially the “makan” part…. he he he. During the trip my girls were fortunate to experience the whole Malaysian wedding ceremony…from the akad nikah up to sending the bride to the groom’s house. Sofea and Jessy were so excited to be the “candy girl”…. glad that they had a good time…
Anyway… this fruit cake is my mum’s favorite… I baked one for her just before we flew back to Kuwait. This morning teringat la pulak kat fruit cake ni… and since I’m the only one who love this cake… I buat 1/2 ingredient je lah!
