The Children In Gaza and My Goals For 2009 (part 1)

This year I have been leaving office at 5.30 sharp....not because I am malas, but with me there will be days that I have to work until the wee hours...so sementara boleh escape, I escape...those days if I balik awal, I will melencung to KLCC or go the GEM to do my hair....hmmm pakai tudung but my har must be tip top...never mind orang tak nampak as long as I feel good...that matters!!But lately, with my condition...I go home straight.....but still delayed due to heavy traffic and so far it has taken me close to an hour to get home....during the school hols, it only took me a bare 20 mins!!

So sambil dok dengak to Mamma Mia soundtrack....dok teringat those kids in Gaza.....wonder if they know that there is peace in the other parts of the world??? Kesian....but then for a small country like Malaysia...sapalah nak dengak!! and those bloody Arabs yang dok sebelah-sebelah...waht have they done? Contribute anything? I saw a picture of Queen Rania in a local newspaper a few days ago pledging for support for the children in Gaza...but what about the taukeh minyak and Arab leaders?? OIC...haram sepatah tak kata apa, hish....

And I thought about how far I have come to where I am today......taklah gah, but hey, my parents have done a really good job....my mother studied only until std 6 sekolah melayu zaman jepun, my father became a teacher with his MCE...and my adik beradik are all berjaya...well I am not that great practising lawyer who people rave about, but I know that I am good at what I do (and cook, ha ha), my younger sister is a doctor...in fact double doctor because not only is she a medical doctor but she also a PHd holder, my brother Boy is happy with his graphic works with MPH and my youngest brother a chef with KLCC Convention Centre who specialise in floral arrangement and ice carving...hmmm kalahkan kaka dia ni....

I used to go to tadika mesjid, couldnt speak Engligh properly when I joined BBGS...now dah jadi Pavilion...and all the girls selalu gelakkan I ...tak palah. I remember I dok merenget nak pencil colur yang kotak besi 24 batnag, thinck it was Faber Castel...all the girls had it then , with the beg kotak merah hitm kotak kotak...my father had to give lots of excuses coz tak mampu nak beli for both me and my sister......Looking at my children now, hah, I have to ganti their pencil colurs every six months, nanti ada yang tertinggal, kawan nicked , etc...such luxury....

Ayo I have to go, for now...have to sort my appraisal for 2009....sorry no recipe today...last night we went out to Delicious at Dua Residency, it was Umar's 6 th birthday so, moi sudah bangun lambat...more about the food at delicious later....tra

Hi Kitchen Guardian

This is my kunjungan balas :-) Firstly, I think a heartiest congratulation is due for your ' condition ' (or am I reading too much between the lines here..heh heh..)

Secondly - I saw a recipe on Soto Ayam! Thanks. I'd like to try this one of these days..Somehow your recipe is different than the ones I have. Thanks again!

Hey, so you broke the news? :-)

I like this story, Yani. You should continue it, pls.

When I think about those days and how our children are these days, memang jauuuuuuh sangat perbezaan nya. But then again, I suppose if our parents could afford it then, we'd probably had the same things too...
