Very Merry Weekend with Loved Ones

Last weekend was the weekend that was probably the most carefree and 'baking-free' weekend. I decided to postpone my class on Sunday as I had a khenduri (gathering where we say prayers and rejoice, of course!)  at Sham's and a house warming get together with hubby's cousin in their new abode Shah Alam.....and I think my family is missing me quite badly already, hehe....

So the fiesta started on Saturday night....my couch warmer (and that's because ever since he was single, my couch had been Bad's favourite spot in the house!) Bad's eldest girl Maryam was celebrating her 8th birthday! Bad and Liza threw a dinner party! Well, the food was good, but I had already had my favourite steaming hot rice with omelette and sweet soya sauce with Muhammad before we went! So...I only waited for Maryam to blow her candles and indulged in this Red Velvet Cake....hehe...Liza wanted this cake for her, actually...but it ended being thoroughly enjoyed by the kids....they probably turned red the next day..of no!
Was in the nick of time so I pasted these fondant daisies....
The view from Bad's apartment...
...and Maryam (in the background) was elated...thank god...I actually wanted to do something with macarons, but I didn't have time for that...

We left quite early, everyone was tired....Saturday is a full day for everyone, the kids have their extra classes or co-curriculum and hubby has to ferry them around...and I'm usually in the kitchen....

And Sunday morning, I left for Sham's ceremony to celebrate girls completion with Quran reading (Khatam Quran) at her lovely home! The whole thing was so beautiful, it was as if one of her girls was getting engaged...well I could see that Pat (Sham's hubby) was clearly nervous!
Floral arrangement by zuree of floraetc !
Sham's lovely girls
And then, it was makan (dining) time...food was also by floracafe... I can vouch that how floracafe makes their Nasi Tomato and Soto Ayam, the taste is somewhat like mine...so...go try them!
There were different varieties of cupcakes and mini cakes, but I prepared this Sicilian Orange Cake...of course ...they were refreshing for alfresco lunch....you see...hehe I perasan (feeling full of myself, tee heee...) as usual! 
Seemed that these were very popular!
...and this was what I had...glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk and turmeric and beef curry....mmmm ....my personal favourite...the fairy cakes were from floracafe...I like I like!
...I loved this setting...I can imagine the beauties that Sham would create when the girls got engaged or got married...Sham does interior designing in her spare time!...and i follow her around sometime to take pictures!

After Sham's do, we left for Kak Ayush's new home in Shah Alam...another lovely place...her house is not fully done up, but it was warm and cosy and made you not wanting to leave once you set your feet in there!
These made me felt very 'spring-y'...it was hot and dry and windy yesterday...
Hubby, Muhammad and Kak Ayush...Kak Ayush is an O&G specialist, she delivered Khadijah!
I loved her 'island kitchen and new stove.......
...of course what's better to have in a balmy Sunday afternoon tea, other than....
Rhubard Strawberry Crumble, which I prepared there...it was a hit with everyone!
...and I thoroughly enjoyed this Curry Mee, Kak Ayush made this!

We went home quite late...I had my chores and those egg whites and almond mix that I had to prepare...but nah...I hopped onto bed almost immediately after I got home, and settled my chores at 5 am the next day!
This picture was taken by Hajar at Sham's, cool, ain't it!

So, it's back to the normal daily things again, but let's work for a brilliant week this week ya!xox
