Eid Celebration in Canberra - Part 2

I thought that we won't be celebrating Eid that much here but boy was I wrong! There were lots of invitation during each weekend since Eid and until now we are still receiving invitations. Last two weeks we (my other two Malaysian neighbours and my family) hosted our “Eid Open House” to our friends and it was brilliant. My kid’s teachers came and they truly enjoyed themselves but I forgot to take the photos since the camera was with hubby. He was too busy talking to his buddies but managed to capture some memorable shots of his beautiful wife….. (at the last minute)

It was fun explaining which dish goes with which... huhuhu...and sometimes I got mixed up but they still ate it!!! Hihihi...

Eid Celebration in Canberra - Part 1

The night before Eid, I tried my best to cook Rendang, Kuah Lodeh and Nasi himpit for my family. It seemed odd though because the decision was made at the last minute (by hubby of course!) and we managed to find the raw material at our usual asian grocery shop. Nevertheless, I enjoyed cooking and splatting the dishes all over my kitchen.... It's oil and coconut paste and veges all over.... hahaha...

Presenting my Rendang, Kuah Lodeh and Nasi Himpit
"Seeking for forgiveness" session with the kids in front of Abu Bakar Mosque, Canberra. Touching!

This has been an enjoyable Eid for me. A new experience and I suppose a learning journey for me to treasure for the rest of my life...... I miss home so much!!!!!

I'm done hybernating....

Dear friends... It's been a month since I blogged...hehehehe.. For the past one month, I've taken up a new challenge and that was working full time. The job was so demanding physically that I've lost weight. Furthermore, it was during Ramadan month that I was offered this job. Nonetheless, I had to quit for the kids missed me too much not forgetting hubby. My shift starts from 3pm till 11pm. It was tough but I got good pay as well... at least now I can go on my shopping spree....

I missed staying at home. I missed blogging. And now that I got it back, I kind of appreciating and utilising it to the max. I could sleep more, relax more, blog more.....

Will blog again from now on....


Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri / Eid Mubarak
