Suruh Vs Ajak

When Akeef was about 10 years old, I started to train him to perform 5 daily prayers. Yes it was not easy, somehow whenever I asked ' Akeef, have you prayed?' . His answer normally no and I then asked him to pray and he said ok. I used to double checked whether he really performed it or not, he usually did as per his say.

So Dhia now is 10 years old and I started to do the same... but people say different child, different behaviour... when I asked her to pray.... she did not say yes or no.... but she was silent and it was actually means NO...arrgh!

It has being for quite some time that she behaving like that and I was so frustrated.... I know it is a challenge not only to the child but also to the parents....syaitan goda dua-dua sekali... anak malas sembahyang.... mak pun malas nak suruh....

Parents: Sometimes we need to change strategy


I have been thinking of how to make this easier...... what if I request her to join me for the prayer instead.... I am going to pray anyway... so why not pray together... and guess what... it is a bit easier as she is willing to join me praying.
3 dara pingitan....
She also asked her sisters to join us, which actually another challenge for me to wait for them to prepare themselves for the prayer.... sometimes punye lama.... nak ambil wudhu', pakai telekung, hampar sejadah... sampai mama nyaris nak terkentut... hihihi...

ada orang lain yang berminat jugalah...
However I could only do this during weekend.... but really hope she get the idea that it is not hard to pray 5 times a day... betul-betul terasa beratnya nak mendidik anak,  kerana kena didik diri sendiri dulu...supaya tidak mengambil jalan mudah untuk tidak mendidik...

Parent: Parenting is not easy... it takes lots of  patience...

Cuba teka siapa saya?

My boy now is 14 years old

Happy birthday Akeef.... gosh  are you taller than papa now?

Gomo Kelate gomo.....

So father and son went to celebrate birthday by watching football..... did you enjoy it son ? I bet Mr H enjoyed it more...

And mama baked you this....
fruit tart...
it was my first time .... so forgave me kalo tak sedap... hehehe.... memang tak berapa jadik pun.... sebab main taram je sukatannya... haiyo I don't know why it is so hard to buy the weighing scale.... may be because I am the lazy chef ... who wants to have excuses...

So you have your lappy as an advance birthday gift( yes yes you have to pay a quarter as a commitment fee.... I know)... but today we bought you a 32g thumb drive...hope you like it... you know your papa had to walk to Low Yatt to get that... sampai sakit kepala dia ( berbaloikah murahnye tu Mr H?)... so you have to appreciate it. Happy birthday son... hope you forever happy and healthy.... successful and soleh. We all love you so much...

Happy Mother's Day

Look what I have got for mother's day...

thank you darlings...

Dhia made me a card and gave a rose which she had gotten from her last birthday party....and Ayra has drawn me a family picture and put it in a basket Mr H got at a wedding.... their effort and the gifts, though recycle was really meaningful to me.

And Mr H bought me a spa voucher.... I  was pampered  for 3 hours....so rejuvenated!

lama dah tak manjakan diri... syiokkk
end up I signed up a package for 5 more treatments.... pandai dia buat business....

Somehow I felt blessed and loved.... to the extend that I  felt that I do not deserve this... Alhamdulillah...

Take a break - Part 6

Children will belief whatever is told to them especially by their friends.... and children nowadays love to compare and also needs to keep up with the Jones...

Parents : Sometimes we have to take it easy.... and make jokes... 


Ayra told me one evening....

Ayra : Mama ada sorang kawan Ayra kat sekolah ni kaya sangat mama.... ayah dia nak buat istana...

Mama : Oh ye ke ? mama pun boleh buat istana, Ayra nak berapa?

Dhia : Istana pasir ke mama?

Mama : Ye ( Dhia ni  kacau daun joke mamalarrr )

Ayra : Ayra nak 100 mama...

Mama : ok

Ayra : Eh 900 lah ( she tried to challenge me!)

Mama : Eh boleh je

Ayra : Batu berlian lah

Mama : Apa kaitan lah pula, batu berlian apa?

Parents : Hint... we are talking numbers 


Mama : Ohhh... maksud Ayra billion-billion ye...kalau macam tu mama surrenderlah.... hehehe

Restoran Al Salam @ Danau Kota

I was laying on the bed, ready to sleep, we had a party in the afternoon for Dhia's Birthday so it was quite tiring. Somehow I was disturbed by some chaotic. Mr H was looking for ipad and when he finally found it, he complained of the poor internet reception. I was a bit annoyed  and thought to myself even if Mr H had forgotten that it was my birthday as the clock about to click 12, at least he could let me have a peaceful night.

Then suddenly I heard a birthday song from the Beatles, so that was the noise all about, he wanted to wish me birthday with a style.... I was really touched.

And he gave me the presents which I think a bit spooky.... no no no I love the necklace and the perfume... it just few days ago when looking at mirror... terdetik macam kosong je leher ni... and now ni i tengah gigih mengkhatam blog bvlgari girl... alih- alih dapat perfume and body lotion bvlgari.... hemmm macamana Mr H boleh tahu... itu yang spooky tu... maksudnya Mr H  tu yang spooky... bela jin ke apa... tau je apa yang I mengidam... hehehe

So the next day he took us to  arabian restaurant at Danau Kota...

Macam melayu sikit nama restoran arab ni kan.....

Last year we had a romantic dinner  for my birthday at an Italian restaurant ... but masa makan tu macam tak romantik sebab I asyik teringat anak kat rumah... I makan sedap-sedap... entah apa yang dia orang makan kat rumah.... sungguh tak selesa... haai apalah I ni, kesian Mr H kan.... so sebab tu this year dia angkut semua sekali... hehehe... but he, in prior bought the lunch set through Groupon which was berbaloi-baloi...this restaurant is new so they are in their introduction  promotion mode kot.

Let see what we had that day... the groupon was bought for RM55 which they claimed worth a value of RM200++

banyaknye starter.....

The one that looked like lingkaran tu was actually cheese dip called humus... very delicious. They gave two type of dips, another one had nutty taste... tapi yang cheese tu lagi sedap.

Aizzz....noo!
Aiz was very moody that day, he wanted to eat on his own but of course not allowed..... Mr H layan dia je hari tu.... I pulak makan  buat tak tahu je apa yang berlaku.... tak pe lah birthday lady kan....

lamb mandy...
For main course, they gave us 2 plates of chicken mandy and 2 plates of lamb mandy.... kami bertujuh pun tak dapat nak habiskan ... so tapau satu plate untuk bibik....

Can't remember pulak namanya....
Ini pulak dessert, rasa dia macam tepung suji yang mak-mak kita buat dulu... budak-budak sekarang mana tahu.... dia orang makan nestum je... hihihi

Lepas habis makan, hantar the kids home.... after that Mr H took me alone to eat this....

Udang merah
Its not expensive italian restaurant... but anywhere with him.... alone.. is romantic.... and ... peaceful... hahaha...

Thank you darling.... love you forever.

Happy Birthday Dhia Darling....

Anak dara sunti mama is 10 years old now. ...almost as tall as me ... but she said she is not tall but I am the one who is short....
So she asked for a small party with her friends... it was small indeed and no goody bags.... which I  regret not to prepare seeing her friends went home empty handed.

 these balloons help to give a party mood  though...

Well blame me for been so bold ( Mr H said I was crazy....but it was too late to awaken me...) to prepare everything on my own on that day itself.... yes I did the groceries and baked muffin, kaya puff,macaroni and pavlova. I made mushroom soup  and decorate the muffin....

zasss it disappeared...
But Bibik helped to fried delicious mee...

Mee goreng bibik memang sedap....
And Che Su baked this beautiful rainbow birthday cake...

Sape nak tempah? RM 80 only.... 
Let see if I am really short, compare to her friends....

Ye lah lebih kurang je tinggi mereka... 
and why you two did not join the rest?

dua kumbang yang pemalu....
Hope she and her friends enjoyed the party.... Happy birthday Dhia sayang... jadi anak yang solehan ... sihat, bahagia dan berjaya dunia akhirat.

Lazy Chef is contradicting

We were expecting guests for lunch so we did our groceries in the morning and found this....

rege dalam RM15 .... 

I can't remember when was the last time I made tiramisu.... you see , I am lazy.... but suddenly today I am not lazy hehe. This tiramisu recipe is simple to make, the only expensive ingredient is mascarpone cheese. I also bought a round marble cake,  sliced and layered them in a tray before I poured a cup of warm nescaffe over it (no sugar).


macam ni...

The next step is to beat 2 white eggs, set aside and beat mascarpone cheese with half a cup of sugar, add the egg white bit by bit. Finally pour the cheese mixture in the tray and sprinkle the cocoa powder on top.... done!  
Laa hai... lubang besar le penapis nih....

For lauk pauk lunch me and bibik masak ikan siakap and pari bakar, masak lemak kuning lala, cendawan dan ayam masak sos tiram, ikan terubuk masin  goreng, ulam-ulaman from our backyard.... cicah dengan budu... pergh!
yum yum....

For the dessert.... besides tiramisu....

sedap dimakan sejuk sejuk....
I also made this....


another pavlova ( sekarang tengah gila buat pavlova... hehehe).....told you... I am not lazy today.....
and after the guest went home....

Macam ni ke bye bye guest nak oii....?
the kids and I did some arts work ( lebih kurang macam tu.la.... krafttangan yang ala-ala keras tangan....)

lipatlah Ayra cam mana pun.... kita nak buat 40 lebih ni....huhuhu

We were making book mark as an invitation card for Dhia's Birthday. Dhia wants to invite her classmates next Saturday.... nampaknya mama kena rajin lagilah next week...

Malam ni kena letak riben and tulis ..... pukul berapa boleh tidur ni.... waaa....
