Heavenly chocolatey.....hmmmmmm

My Monday this week started well enough with me having breakfast of rawa tose in Senawang with a dear friend whom i had not seen for about a month. We usually meet twice or three times a week just to keep our mind sane as both of us are not in the group of working women anymore. When i fetched her at her home i felt my heart was so heavy and as we shook hands and hugged each other i was just overwhelmed with emotion, i could not hold my tears. I did not realise i missed her that much. She sort of being my confidante since i decided to be a domestic engineer. My 2nd boy always said that he pity me as I only have one friend here in Seremban ha ha ha. We yakked while savoring the tose and of course i did most of the talking.
i am using this picture of hers as i did not get her
blessing to put up her picture here he he......

Then i dropped her off and went home as the guys from the kitchen cabinet shop were on the way to fix the table top for my kitchen cabinet. They were quite efficient, they finished just in time for me to go and fetch my 2 younger boys from school. As i did not cook for lunch the boys wanted roti chanai. We went to the mamak shop in Seremban town. Finished eating, we got into the car but the car would not start. No sound at all not even a click when i turn the key to start the engine.....ooo shoot....one thing led to another, i gotta changed the car battery. I got my friend to send my boys home first....waited for the guy to change the battery and i was drenched when i got into my car to go home after paying him. Got home my youngest son said his room was flooded from the leaking roof. Mopped the floor dry and the back was aching....by that time i was just too tired to do anything else. I left everything after that to dear hubby he he.... and went to sleep.

Tuesday, to de-stress and forget what had happened on Monday i decided to bake chocolate cupcakes. Its turned out so lovely and yummy, i was so pleased with myself. So no more stress since then he he.....

what a way to de-stress oneself - bake cupcakes! i so know the feeling of being a domestic err engineer. my post is dapur officer cum home manager minus the gaji n other perks!

meeting old chums once in a while mmg bagus punya terapi - we so need the time-out kan?

Hello Zaitgha, ada lagi your cupcakes? Betual chantek tu. And chocolate.
Women's weakness.
By the way, sini in Canada kalu nak chari pasal, call a guy "hey cupcake", you better be good at running, ha ha.
So, your kitchen semua suda siap? Bila opening ceremony, masak your world famous chillie padi crabs?
Hantar telegram bila masak tu, ya? Lee.
