Labor Day mishap, dinner dish and practice......

I think many of us looked forward for public holidays and Labor Day holiday was no different. The Labor Day morning for me started well enough. My hubby and I had breakfast without the kids. Then we bought roti canai for the boys and headed home. I started my routine in the kitchen and a few times was startled by my hubby showing his face at the kitchen window asking this and that when i was engrossed with things. The last request through the window was to cut off the string of his grass cutter machine( sorry if there is a better word for this). Heard the machine making noise about half and hour and saw the hubby sweeping the cut grass and fallen leaves into the garbage bag. He came into the house, had a cold drink, cleaned himself and chatting with the boys. He went out again and suddenly he called me. I could sense something was wrong and true enough he pointed at my car passenger side window....adoiiii my heart sank, i guessed it happened when a stone hit the mirror when he cut the grass earlier. Anyway, sh*t happened, we went to town to check if any workshop opened but no such luck. We got it changed on Friday.
The night before, i cooked Rendang chili api cockles with long beans. Hot but yummy stuff........
















Inspired by this newfound site and my sifu, i practice my sugarpaste and fondant rose making. These were the result of my 'keras tangan', definitely a lot more practice needed ha ha ha....

Wah..rajin la Zai. Your roses looks fine, normally org yg buat tu sendiri mesti rasa tak cukup cantik. Tapi ok dah tu.
Too bad about your car. Nasib baik hubby self-inflicted. Let's say we did it,I'm sure he'll complain !

Sorry to read about what happened to your cermin kereta. Mama pun, kalau lalu kat tepi orang potong rumput, selalu je ngeri. Malang tak berbau kan...but as long as tak ada yang cedera, okaylah!
Hmm...ni dah tengok Zai dok main 'plastesin' tu, cam teruja la pulak! Tunggu mama settlekan rumah yang tongkang pecah ni dulu sebab dah 4 hari tinggal! Ahakss
p/s : Ha ah, tak ada ruang komen kat blog. Mama tak larat nak reply. Hehehe...

Owwwwccchhh Zai...I can feel the heart-ache!!! ha ha ha Look at the brighter side - you've got one rajin hubby!!! he he he

Ok, ok..your cili padi cooking ...hmmm...yum yum yum...I sooo like anything cili-padi, you know. But at home the kids tak makan. If I cook, then it's only for me. Boring je.

And, you too use the term keras tangan, eh? I over-use the term because that's me - memang keras tangan!! Hopeless bab-bab ni. But thumbs up to you, my friend!! Your roses say it all!!! Keep going!!
