My birthday is coming up soon and I don’t think I have felt so jaded before. Granted, I have never truly been big on birthdays (except perhaps my husband’s), but I did somehow look forward to it. This time around, I don’t even feel like I want to know it’s my birthday. For one, I… Read More 32
I’ve been going through a lot lately. These things have made me edgy, stressed, and quick to temper. I realized these so most of the times, I tried to tone them down, but there were once or twice several times that I lost it. However, one of the things that was very obvious was how I didn’t… Read More I Just Don’t
I’ve been toying with the idea of having a separate blog just for cooking for quite some time now. It’s nothing fancy or extraordinary because I don’t want to pretend that I could cook haute cuisines (though, I suppose, I would be making several attempts, hahahah) or daydream about my life being like Hassan Khadam… Read More Cooking’s A Peach!: My First Cooking Blog
I don’t know about you, but I just love chocolate chip cookies. I could really eat them every single day. When I was younger, while I didn’t have any romantic idea about having the dream wedding or a happy family, I’ve always known that if I ever have either of them, I want to be able to… Read More Chocolate Chip Cookies Craze
I knew it! I thought about this the first time I saw the movie!
It’s been ages since I last wrote and I feel awkward doing this now. But I’ve been doing so many things, I can’t find the time to sit down and write. One of the many things I’ve been doing is taking beading orders for dresses. Aidilfitri is coming, so many people are either getting married… Read More Busy Bee Little Me
Let’s celebrate our womanhood by uplifting and supporting other women while working hand in hand with men to create a better world for our children and our children’s children.
What on Earth have I been doing? Things have been so crazy that I don’t know where the January and February went. I thought it was just 2016 and now it’s March. MARCH. My eldest is in school and my second is starting preschool. My youngest is driving me up the wall and on top… Read More It’s March?!
The kids have been watching Christmas movies for several days now and we’ve been talking about Christmas for quite a bit. Sophea: Mommy, why our house don’t have a Christmas tree? Me: Because we don’t celebrate Christmas. Sophea: But I like Santa. Me: You don’t have to celebrate Christmas to like Santa. A lot of… Read More Is Santa Real?
I’ve been baking for a few days on end now. First, it was Sophea’s Barbie cake to Damien’s forest-themed cake. It was really fun that I get to bake again after so long. Sure, my piping skills a little rusty, but I’m sure with more practice, it’ll come back again. Ahahaha. I’m considering selling my… Read More Simple Vanilla Cupcakes
I first saw one of these cakes when I was 10, during a cousin’s birthday party. I was so envious and couldn’t stop looking at the cake throughout the party. My parents are never big on birthdays and we don’t really celebrate so it’s kind of hard for us to get a birthday cake. By… Read More Barbie Cake
I’m super energized today and looking forward to the week! Have a good and productive Monday and a great week ahead!
Last week, a new mother jumped to her death from the 16th floor of her high-rise apartment. She had a 10-day old baby and the reason she jumped? She was pressured to breastfeed her baby, but wasn’t able to produce much supply. This news shook me as well as angers me because she was pressured to… Read More Because Postpartum Depression Is Real
Gosh, it’s been a while since I have the time to write. Things have been crazy and on top of everything, I’m working on a new writing project that’s going to take up most of my time. So before I get into the project, I decided to bake and get my minds off things. Ramadhan… Read More Custard Cake With Dates
Things have been crazy for the past few weeks. Dad’s got a heart attack. Work is crazy. Mohen is out of town most of the time. I desperately need to write, but so much things to do I can’t sit still. Will be back soon!
Preparation time: 30 minutes Cooking time: 30 – 40 minutes My kids have been pestering me to bake them a cake. I would if there was anything to bake because I haven’t done grocery shopping for baking for weeks. Then I remembered my mom’s go-to cake when she has very limited ingredients. So I… Read More 4-Ingredient Steamed Cake
