Kuih Seri Muka

Kuih Seri Muka

This coming 25th and 26th February, Kuwait will be celebrating their National Day and Liberation Day. Their government is always generous in giving holidays and therefore everybody will get 4 days break from the 24th to the 27th (Sunday is a working day for Kuwait) giving a total of 6 days if you count the weekend leading towards the National and Liberation day. What makes it wonderful is the school will be closed for the whole week. Last year we took a road trip to Mecca and Madinah for Umrah and this year we decided to visit Istanbul. Well, it will a short break for everyone and hopefully will be a memorable one. Istanbul is one of the destination that was in our list when we first arrived here but somehow we kept on postponing the trip and other destination seems to take priority over it. So, Istanbul here we come, insyaallah!

We will fly there on in the morning (flight is at 7 am) and by 27th evening we will be back home in Kuwait. Now is already midnight and we will be leaving the house in about 4 hours and guess what… haven’t finish packing ha ha ha…. so, lets get to the point. Here is the recipe for my Kuih Seri Muka. Cant remember which website I got this recipe from but have been using this for the last 5 years, so… to the owner of the recipe… thanks a million. Have a nice break everyone. See you in a week time.
