A tiring mother's day......

Mother's Day went by a jiffy to me yesterday. No real celebration except for warm wishes and hugs from my heroes in the house. Started the day very early by sending a set of cupcakes ordered by next door neighbor. I send the cuppies at 8.00 am.....

I was only able to accept one mother's Day order as i had engagement request earlier. Furthermore, the engagement was family , hence the priority he he....the neighbor asked for chocolate cupcakes which was easy as the cake for the engagement was chocolate too. So just did double recipes for both and baked them in one go. The cupcakes for engagement was orange cupcakes. Apology for the blurry pictures as i was in a rush and could not take more pictures as i forgot to charge the camera battery......so forgetful of me

At 8.30 we fetched my MIL and off we were on the highway going to KL with the 2 gifts (hantaran). We reached Sentul an hour later just nice as the convoy to Bentong supposed to leave at 10.00 am. Boy...how wrong we were.
I don't know why or it is just the Malaysian thingy about cannot be on time. If they were judged by time management, they would flunked out mega time. It is either time management or most of us just do not have the sense of timing. The convoy only left for Bentong at almost noon. After this and that, here and there, my hubby and i left Bentong for home at 3.00 in the afternoon. I was sleepy all the way and hubby too, we decided to rest at Nilai R&R. Half an hour later we shot off to Seremban and reached the home sweet home almost close to 6.00. I had a nap, woke up just after 7.00, had a nice cold shower. We ate out for dinner and the boys and hubby got ready the uniforms and things for the next day. Still a bit stiff from the journey, i ended up in bed just before 11.00.....age catching up really fast i guess ha ha ha.....

That is why it is called 'janji melayu' We should change it, don't you think. Really love to look at your cake decoration.Do you do your baking alone, wow !

laily,

i had a great disciplinarian of time in my late father until he passed on last year...if it was my occasion i would never allowed that to happen...if only there was no 'janji Melayu' we could do more than what we had done before....

Hello Zaitgha, I am glad I never met a lady like you old days.
Habis cherita, I lose my Bachelor's degree and you win a Masters, ha ha.
For a bachelor, very dangerous to meet a woman who not only a gourmet cook but an expert at cake making.
Your cakes here is totally out of this world, they so beautiful, I can even get the lovely scent here! Ha ha.
Zaitgha, women like you don't grow on trees!
Stay beautiful and happy cooking. Lee.
