I succeed in something today.

The truth is, I rarely do.

What more can a wife ask for, then seeing her husband finishes a plate full of 'kuih keria' by himself and eating his Mee Bandung very fast but very quietly.

When he-my husband eats silently but at a full speed, it means just one thing : He thinks it's delicious!

Ok, the mee bandung was easy peasy lemon squeezy. Had chicken, had onions, then I just threw in the Perencah Mee Bandung Adami. Diced some capsicum, kacang panjang, tomatoes and onions as ulam. Boiled eggs. And there u have it!
But the kuih keria, yes it was my absolute own. The best thing was this time, I managed to shape them nicely into shapes of 'tayar' :D.
See how proud I am of myself? uuu..haha

I'm not here to boast, in fact, I was actually known as someone who don't know how to cook (at school, MMU and at a room i rented in 2006) :D.
How humiliating is that?

Back then, I only knew a few recipes. Heck, I even only learnt to goreng telur after graduating from MMU!!
Yupp..plain humiliation to self.

Then I met Yeh.
No, he never asked me to cook for him while we were only dating.
But somehow, I cought a glimpse of our future..together..uuh..cheesyy

So, that's when I started learning. At first it only seems like the impossible.
I try finding easy recipes, bought my first buku resepi bergambar at MPH with Tim hehe.

My first try was : Cheese Cake! Which my cheese cake lover brother loves soo much.
He even asked me once ' Kakyah, macam mane kakyah bleh wat cheesecake sedap camni?'
Owh..a question sooo flattering :P.
I wonder how he does with girls..hmm :D

Anyway, then after that I moved on to harder ones like fruit cakes, muffins, gulai, nasi tomato and the rests.
Alhamdulillah before flying off Egypt, I had some recipes memorized.

Ahh ...I suddenly remembered how I managed to blew up my Brahim's Rendang while heating it in a microwave whilst on honeymoon. Lucky Yeh was not in the house to witness my lack of IQ using the microwave haha.

Uhm well, now married for like 8 months? And having to cook almost is one of the days I felt I succeed ..hmm smiling smiling all the wayyy..(don't burst my bubble ok)

I have no pictures of my own cooking to put up coz of this lousy internet connection.
Well, maybe after Ramadhan...or just before it ends.
Who knows? Who knows the internet might behave tonight? Or even tomorrow? Should I hope? Should I?

End of story

Tomorrow Yeh is taking another exam, his final paper InsyaAllah.
Tonight..he is going crazy over books and notes. He just said it 'Abang dah Gilaa! BlaBlaBla' dengan mata terbeliak n senyum sorang2 :p.

Semoga dapat jawab pekse elok2 esok, dan najah dengan cemerlang! Aaamiiinnnnnnn.
hehe I know u can..Just Do It! Bak kate sapetah.
