This end of year holiday..we do not go abroad thinking that the kids are still very small. We are planning to go for a holiday abroad whenever they understand to the word 'NO'....*chuckles* . To have fun, we spent time at the kids' favourite spot 'Jollybee'. It was actually their very first time to be freed to play at the in-door playground. However, they have to be guarded strictly especially our superhero Habibi.

He seemed to dominate the playground. Our two maids had to stay close to him as he joyfully climbed, jumped and slided with full of energy. The other children had to wait up till he was done with his slide. Habibati was easier to handle. When it was time for the spaghetti break, Habibi still wanted to carry on with his mission. So my hubby, Habibati and I enjoyed the delicious spaghetti while watching Habibi playing and the maids had to act as his securities.It was in deed our jolly time!

Last Saturday night, we rushed Habibati to JPMC Paediatric Ward as she developed some kind of rashes on her skin. It was around 8.30 p.m. while watching her favourite Mickey Mouse Club House, I noticed she was continuously scratching her face, hands and feet. I thought they were just the mosquito bites. Then, when I felt something was wrong with her facial skin, I took a closer look under the bright light. What I saw? There are red bumps all over her facial skin as well as her hands and feet. So off we blitzed to JPMC and luckily Doctor Victor Roy (Habibati's paed specialist) was on his night shift.
After the examination, Dr Roy convinced us that there was nothing much to be worried about because it was an allergy. He prescribed her with Prednisolone soluble tablets and Chlorpheniramine syrup. I gave her the medicines using the syringe while she was sleeping. The doctor advised us to stay in the ward for two and a half hours in order to observe the effect of the medicines. Only Allah knows how I felt during those 'heart-throbbing' moments, deep in my heart praying to Allah for Habibati's recovery. And alhamdullilah, we were allowed to go home when the doctor observed her improvement.
It was really a night to remember!

This is a traditional Malay recipe shared by the understanding KakLin. The taste was very deliciously finger-licking. My hubby loved it too. Here in Brunei we call this fern sayur 'pakis' and it can be found easily around the roadways. I usually cook it by just pan-frying or sometimes I make it into 'kerabu'. Thus I requested KakLin to share this recipe with me because I really wanted to taste this new way of cooking it. So if you wanna taste it....have a look at the simple ingredients because the recipe is just a click away...
Oh yea...this is the close-up picture of the edible fern...I bet some of the buddies who are not living in the South East Asian countries would love to know how it looks physically.

To KakLin ---> Thanks for sharing this and I really appreciate it to the fullest....*hugs*

While my hubby was looking for Habibati's stickers at a gift shop nearby, Habibi and I just stayed in the car. As usual,Habibi would move around the car seats. I let him do anything he wanted but I had to keep an eye on all his movements.He finally found a 'peaceful' place. Then he smiled when I captured his actions. Drivers passing by had to look twice at us...when they realized something unusual came into their sights!

This recipe is shared by MummyHanan.

I have tried it for dinner.The ingredients comprised fresh kue teow, fresh baby corns, fish cakes, blue shrimps, chopped chicken, carrots, oyster sauce and black pepper sauce. How to cook?

It's as simple as abc...

First, fry the chopped garlics till fragrant. Then pop the carrot and young corn slices in. Fry them for a while then put in the oyster sauce and black pepper sauce. Pour in the chicken stock (prepared earlier) so that it looks like a soup. Wait till it boils then pop in the chicken meat, fish cakes and the blue shrimps. Mix some corn flour with a little water in a bowl and then pour it into the boiling soup. Mix them well until the soup thickens.
Something new or special about this recipe is that eggs are not blended with the boiling soup but with the fresh kue teow instead. Then in a wok, the fresh kue teow plus eggs are fried together for a while.The colour of the kue teow after being fried was fabulously golden. Served hot in a bowl, the fried kue teow is bathed with the thick soup. It's time to enjoy the mouthwatering recipe. I highly recommend the love-to-cook gangs out there to have a try....

To MummyHanan -->Thanks for sharing...bcoz sharing is caring kan!

Here the school break is on already till early next year. On the very last day of the academic calender, we celebrated the end of the school term by 'makan-makan' and lucky draws. It was undoubtedly fun. Together we set the rule for the lucky draws that every teacher should contribute a present which costs BND20 above. So in the end every one would come home with a present. Indirectly I would say that we exchanged presents for fun! Remember the 'barter trade system'....?

So as the foods for the "party"...teachers generously brought in what ever they could cook. It was almost like a 5-star hotel's lunch buffet. I was so highly tempted to taste every scoop of the delicacies. It seemed my dish was running out of space!

I bought a multi-purpose basket with stand and it was numbered 15 (my hubby's fav number). And the above picture shows my lucky strike, numbered four.

It's all because of being very curious. Early in the morning, Habibi had another encounter with a creepy crawly. It's a beetle. He trailed the beetle and even touched it.These are few shots of his actions.
This brave little man is also attracted to small spiders, ants, moths and butterflies. We don't really mind him trailing or going upclose with the creatures...but...the only thing makes us crazy (especially me) is when he touches them! Little does he know about the danger of touching them...hmmmmm....Habibi..Habibi...
Ummi and Ayah bet you are gonna be a vet or an entomologist one day! Who knows yea...
