Old Flame, New Love, All Time Love....

My new love...Kmix mixer from of course...Kenwood.....hubby's gift to me....yup am 41 today and am at work, simply because I had forgotten all about today, hence, have not applied for a day off!! Alhamdulillah, panjang lagi my umur I!
Hmm, those days, I would have drooled over a handbag or a pair of shoes...am not a bling bling person, even though I have a wish list of some goodies from Chopard and Tiffany and a few watches. But now, my head is constantly thinking about baking stuff...mind you they might not be those branded ones, but they are expensive...so I thought for my birthday, I'd give myself the gifts of attending baking classes, making sugar flowers that I so lurve so much and buying baking books and utensils....think when baking cakes or cupcakes, I prefer to offer different varieties of flavours, like lemon with cream cheese topping, or spiced apple with passion fruit curd topping, or vanilla with white chocolate cake.....etc rather than the usual vanilla and chocolate cuppies......hence, I need all the knowledge and skills to do these...
I think having reached this far, I have more or less achieved what I wanted in terms of health and happiness, what I really strive for these days are the achievements by my children....you come to an age that the happiness of others matters more than yours, and of course to be closer to God.....I can't ask for more when it comes to relatives and friends around me, you are like the flowers in my garden...hmmm my real garden at home tak dak bunga except for frangipani and my kitchen, bunga kantan.....
My old flame....Jenome, hubby got this for me together with a pleater machine, for me to make smock dresses for Khadijah...which I did and have been doing, but I still have many unfinished projects....I still love making smocked dresses, but since my eyesight is giving way, it is really strenuous to sew, esp at night...
Me and hubby on my call-to-the-bar day, entah bila.....the only moment that I was proud to call myself a lawyer, otherwise, I would prefer to be know as ME!!
My all time love....always giving me courage and hope to try something new...actually it was more like paksaan than passion...but I gradually fell in love with smocking and baking, he he!!!

Happy Birthday, Yani!

You are so lucky to be able to fully utilise both sides of your brain - the analytical one and the creative one. Not many can do that!

happy 41st birthday sis! I guess at the end of the day, as old folks say, "sepandai-pandai wanita, ke dapur juga ia nanti..". You have done it so well that I'm sure your family (hubby esp) are so proud of you!

May Allah bless you + family always.
