What's this?

Last Eid al-Adha, mom and I were scared that we couldn't serve anything for the guests as we've decided not to cook anything. So that night I baked what supposed to be a chocolate meringue cookies.

And look what happened....

Cracking macarons?

But I couldn't stop eating it!

There goes my diet program *sigh*

Lost & Found!

After weeks of not having my 'borrowed' camera, look what I found in my SD card!

I think it was for Raya kot? I remembered I brought the cupcakes bare without frosting then I frosted it in KL with the help from my bf as the big-buffy-strong-biceps-mixer. Hahaha.

Both ordered by Munirah.

And this one was from my bestfriend, Nana. Need to practice more on wording! Ughhh.

I am back!

I am sitting on my bean bag, at the usual corner at where I put my laptop, in my room here in JB. Ahh yes finally I am back in JB! Actually, it was two weeks ago. Mom frantically called me everyday, updating on our cats who were badly sick from a virus. All of our cats got infected and died eventually. But when Mom called and tell me Krystal (the second cat) who just delivered her babies died, I just couldn't stay still. I cried so bad when finally I texted Mom;

"I wanna go home.... So bad! Boleh?"

"Yes I know you're worried. Go and book you flight ticket"

And I was relieved!

It was two 10 days before Eid al-Adha and I already on plane flying back home.

To see one by one died including the babies was really heart wrenching! I barely had time for myself. We had to sanitized their home, fed them medications (twice a day), fed sick cats who lost appetite, fed the babies when the Mom(s) died, countless trip to different vet clinic and prayers (a lot!) along the way.


And lost few kg which I think I will gain back in a few days. Oh no!

And, the last kitten died yesterday :(

I didn't realized I was exhausted until I spent a good 6 hours sleep that morning.

Ok. Move on.

Simple cakes I baked (again) for last Raya. OMG I am so backdated! Huhu. Sorry guys!
