Pretty in pink and tagged

A fellow makcik blogger requested a set of cupcakes to be sent to her mum last Friday. I baked orange butter cupcakes and top the cakes with choc ganache and one cut off fondant flower each. The hubby drove the car as i looked for the road name from the address given in via the sms. The taman is quite near to my taman and in no time we found the house. Then my husband and the boys went for the Friday prayers while i sat in the car reading the newspaper . After the prayer, we were off to Lumut for the weekend. Now the world seems very small. Kay ordered via phone, give the details via sms, paid me online via M2U and next day i delivered the cakes to her mum.....so easy peasy and the transaction was completed.While cutting of the pink fondant flowers, my mind drifted to 1986 when i went to see Pretty in Pink with my housemate in Houston, Texas. And i was humming to one of the song which i like from the movie....anyone saw this movie and know the song??



And Wanshana tagged me after posting her takes on the makcik bloggers meeting ....and here we go....

1. People always have the impression that i was sombong, garang and quite when they first met me. But as many had discovered i was a total opposite but part garang tuh only when the situation warrants it he he.
2. Hubby and i started as a good friends. Only realised that we were meant for each other after a month long separation during one of the winter holidays....
3. He influenced my taste of musics....i listen to rock songs even now he he.....
4. I used to not like cooking or baking before....
5. Many people have mistaken me to a Chinese and according to my late dad, not an ounce of Chinese blood in me.....I do wish i had learned Mandarin though.
6. I do not eat what i bake. But i do taste to ensure its good.
7. If there was no internet, i think i might joint the work force again.
8. Never followed local reality programs, but i am a sucker for American Idol and Amazing Race. Love Ida Nerina in the Asia version of Amazing Race though i was never a fan of hers before.
9. I love all the CSI series and love Horatio Caine the most. The character amused me he he...especially at the starting of the show.
10. I would love to visit Kota Bharu soon as i went to primary school from standard 1 to 4 there dinosaur time ago. Really wonder how it is now.
11. I love playing sports especially table tennis and tennis, quite good at it at one time but now i got no sparring partner in Seremban....and i had doubled my size since i quit working.....
12. I love watching sports too...and many guys were quite taken when i talked about sports those days...now just share with hubby jer la he he
13. Very minimalist when come to house deco, but still will admire others lah....
14. I don't enjoy shopping so much. Will do only if i had to....
15. I am scared of crowd.
16. Lastly, i dont eat durian....

If any of you guy goes zzzzzz while reading this, i am not offended ha ha ha....i am not the most interesting person...

Zai,

Thanks so, so much helping me out with the cup cakes. My niece & gang loved them like nuts. Berkali-kali mengucapkan thanks to me and yes I have jaja-ed you as the briliant baker of the cuppies.

Hey...you don't eat durians too?? Ahh...I have a friend now. But so susah kan to tell others that we don't eat durians...people think that we "berlagak". Grrrr....

Kak Teh said...

Zaitgha,

Thank you for doing the tag, dear :)

I love CSI, too!!! But, I'm more of a Grissom die-hard fan, though :)

And re you looking like a Chinese, I think you look more like a Mat (Minah) Salleh actually ;)

And #4 is very interesting indeed. So, when did you actually start love cooking and baking? Because you are so terrer now - like you've been doing it sejak azali. So, it's not too late for me to start (and love) baking, I guess? (Hehehe...that'll be the day...)

Selamat menyambut Ma'al Hijrah to you and family.

Dear Zai

I saw the Pretty In Pink kat rumah too but tak dan rasa, huhu.

I rasa people who play table tennis and tennis are one of the most interesting people, sebab sure pakai skirt pendik and cowok cowok sure suka one!

zaitgha said...

TM,

i started to play table tennis when i was in Std 4 in KB....when i played at that time pakai short jer ha ha ha...and i started tennis when i was in the States...the skirt was another reason i played the game he he....masa tuh slim melim tersembul lah mata cowok2 tgk but now lari dia org nanti....

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Zaitgha, love your cupcakes, as always.
Here's wishing you and family the best of Seasons greetings and Selamat Tahun Baru.
Happy baking Zaitgha, and jagan lup the RayBan's bila pergi walkabout to Mall. Best regards, Lee.
