Celebrating without the parents :-(

How was your Raya Haji?

Mine was hectic. Dan sedikit sayu. Of course it was sad since we had to celebrate it without our parents and FIL. But it was still fun nevertheless. I had the chance to have a taste of what it feels like to take charge. And man! It was damn tiringggg!

My SIL and I managed to come up with these on pagi raya. Not bad huh?!? I think we deserve an A for the effort!

Truth be told, before this I never bothered to learn to make my mom's special dish on raya morning : sup tulang! I remember a day before she pushed off to Mekah, baru tergedik-gedik saya nak mintak recipe. So she just told me the ingredients roughly and being the lazy me, I just hope I have them stuck in my head for when I need them. So on raya eve, kelam kabut la nak ingat balik recipe. Luckily, they turned out quite well despite me forgetting the full recipe given, though my brothers kept complaining tak sama cam mak buat. Haihhh! Memang la susah nak sama okkkk! Air tangan mak adalah lain.

But hubby said it was scrumptious. That coming from a man whose favorite dishes are all sorts of CURRY and not soup, maka saya dengan bangganya men-declare sup tulang saya adalah yummylicious!

And most importantly, rendangku tidak hangitttt lagiii! Ngiahahahha!

If only mak was there, she would've been proud of me I'm sure! Hahaha.

And then that night we had a fun gathering with all the siblings. Kecoh rumah my brother with us and the kids.  Alhamdulillah, despite all the shortcomings we are blessed with love and happiness.  Thank you Allah.

Thank you soooo much!
