ohhh...what a week....

A request from a young lady in Malacca for her friend in Seremban. I send these hantaran on Thursday evening last week as the akad ceremony was on the Friday. The cakes was chocolate moist and yellow was the theme. The base was actually off-white yellowish but the sun was shining brightly behind me when the pictures were taken.


I was trying to get maroon roses, but it turned out strong pink according to my friend. So gotta try again.



On Saturday, my brother hosted an open house and celebrated his 2nd daughter 8th birthday. This brother of mine was doing 'bundle business' during the fasting month and the birthday girl was so at ease selling the goods. I was amazed with her business acumen, at 8 years old she looked like a pro coaxing the passers by to buy one or 2 pairs of shoes....

Cousins

The cucu den...

My youngest donning a party hat....see the cheeks

The guy in stripes is my brother 'salaming' the niece. See the eyes on the tv screen, scary ya..the show was 'The Green mile' if i was not mistaken....

The children were fascinated with the clown,

My blueberry crumble tarts for the occasion

The birthday girl

Some of the food; my muffins, tarts, my sis's yummy cheesecake, lemang and agar-agar

On Sunday, hubby and i played congkak in one of the resort at Sg Tua. Both of us were beginners congkak players ha ha ha.....my youngest son could crash me in congkak with his eyes close...i am that bad of a congkak player

Then from Monday, i have been travelling Sban - KL almost daily as the FIL is admitted in KLGH since Saturday. With the activities, we visited him in the evening....i was told only last night that he would be discharged today.

Zai,
Wah..cantiknya cupcake tuh...You're really talented la buat bunga-bunga tu...Kalau I , bunga ros jadi bunga kekwa.
Dulu masa kecil main congkak , korek lubang kat dalam tanah dan pakai biji getah..bila habis main , habis kuku jadi hitam..Zai pernah rasa tak macam tu?
