This post is about my celebration of life. I had a very hectic time at work last week, but at the same time I had a terrific time doing the things I enjoyed doing and spent terrific moments with loved ones. I had planned much earlier for a Friday off day last week to just laze around, I ended up baking the whole day....and I enjoyed every minute of it! I also met some wonderful people who read my blog....Faridah and Nooriza and yet to see face to face visitors who dropped emails...like Fayza....
On Thursday, hubby decided to throw a surprise birthday lunch for his partner aka Superwomanwannabe at Rahsia...and I made Devil's Food Chocolate Cake the way I want it to be...with Strawberries, Chocolate Ganache, Cream Cheese and Valrhona Chocolate....hmm, am still thinking about it until today...the taste of Valrohna infused with the smell of strawberries and the silky taste of Cream Cheese so palatable but uncluttered...it was just so heavenly!
I slept at 1.30 that night finishing the hantaran cakes for my other sister from a different father and mother, but we look so much alike...Liza. The cakes were going to Muar, for her cousin's akad nikah!
And, I slept at 2.30 on Saturday morning, smiling, after completing successfully a Barbie Cake for the overjoyed birthday girl Fatini.....and also because I met Nooriza, who came all the way from Bukit Jelutong to collect her cake for her husband that night. And Nooriza's husband also shares the same passion like my husband's, they loved what I call "kayu buruk" solid wood furnitures, my husband is more inclined towards vintage ones! When I spoke to her earlier, we shed tears when she told me about her young toddler who had just completed his chemo treatment, he too has ALL leukemia like my sil, subhanallah! I feel her pain, but Allah knows best what's in it for you....
And, Saturday I followed husband back to Ayer Baloi, after missing so many trips there with him...and my! He had filled up the house with new collections of vintage plates and crockery and "kayu buruks", looks like we might be moving there sooner than I thought?!!
And, the renovations for our new room and open bathroom...it's going to be a new love-nest for moi and hubby!!??
And, of course, what's a trip to Pontian without going for the seafood in Kukup...ahh, I can never get enough of what I did last week! Enjoy the pictures!
