Assalamualaikum and good day guys. Has it been 6 months since my last posting? Really? Gosh… I really need to start writing again… there are a lot of things that I want to share but it seems like time is not on my side. Having said that.. ada jugak time that I want to write but I cant find my laptop or my laptop is out of battery… so straight away mood malas datang… excuse and more excuse hehehe
Okay.. just a quick update since my last posting…
… Celebrated Ramadhan and Eid without Aina and Nurin. Eid was short as Sofea’s final exam was on the 10th day of Eid. We came back to KL early so that she has time to study for the finals. Jasmine and Haqeem’s final exam were on the following week… stress? Nah… being doing this for so long… dah immune hahaha.
…. Attended Aina’s graduation in Portsmouth, UK in July. We stayed in UK for almost 1 month. Jalan jalan? Not really.. was there to attend the graduation, help Aina packed her staff to send home and and helped Nurin to pack her staff to move to another apartment. UK weather was sooo hot during our visit ( weird coming from a person who spent the last 10 years in Middle East). Well.. apa tak panas nya.. rumah dia org ni don’t even have a fan.. AC tak payah cakap la. But… having said that, the temperature in the evening was nice… we managed to do bbq few times at the park near the beach. We did a lot of walking in the evening… that was something that I enjoyed during the stay.
… Aina and Nurin came back with us mid of August. It was lovely to have everyone under the same roof. House was noisy and happening hehehe just they way I remembered.
… Celebrate a quiet Eid Adha in KL. Did not take a trip back to Kelantan for few reasons… Sofea started her 1st year of University on the 6th day of Eid, Nurin started her internship on the same day and the main reason was we do not have the transport to balik Kelantan hehehe. Flight was fully booked and we only have a 5 seater car.
… Aina celebrated her 23rd birthday on the 18th Sept and at 2 am the following day Nurin flew back to UK to start her final year… it was hard to let her go knowing that this year she will be alone but insyaallah she will be okay as I put all my trust in Allah to protect her while she is away from home. Counting days till we will be together again insyallah in July.
Okay.. enough with the update, lets look at the recipe. I am sharing another chiffon cake recipe today.. something light, fluffy and tangy. I promise that you and your family will love this cake. This time instead of using the normal full size chiffon pan, I use the small chiffon pans that I bought quite sometime ago (more than 2 years hehehe) but have not been given the opportunity to use it (excuse la tu). Happy baking guys!
