September 20th

I told myself, we are celebrating you today! So just offering loads of dua for your hereafter. No tears and no sadness shall filled the day. I promised.

As I retire to bed, I can’t help looking at your photos because I miss you. Very much. These tears just couldn’t stop flowing. I broke my promise.

Happy Birthday Mak!

May Allah place you among the pious in Jannah. May Allah forgive all your sins and accept all your prayers and good deeds. I pray that we will be reunited in Jannah. Amin 🤲🏼

I thought of you…

I thought of you today.. I texted but no reply.. so I texted the next best person to see how you are.. She said you’ve been in the hospital for a month..

I broke down and cry in the tram. I even forget about the stressful and overwhelming day I had. Knowing you’re trying to win this battle on your own. Just breaks me. Each time I see you, you’re all smiles.. Little did I know, you’re battling such a huge test.

I wish I knew sooner. I wish. but what could I have done? Your acting is amazing. You are going for a treatment this week. So I pray to Allah that He will make it easier for you and relieve you from all your struggles that you’re battling. I know it’s not easy.

[2.284] Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is Allah’s; and whether you manifest what is in your minds or hide it, Allah will call you to account according to it; then He will forgive whom He pleases and chastise whom He pleases, and Allah has power over all things.

Before I left you last June, I hugged you extra tight and told you to take care of yourself. I already knew then but I know you wouldn’t want anyone to know. So I pretend I didn’t.

I miss you, A.

#driverconfessions #2

Been driving to work daily. It’s been exhausting I must admit!

All I can say is…

If you’re on the right lane, the least you can drive is on the speed limit if you’re going to be slower than the speed limit just go to the middle. lane.

#driverconfessions #1

Finally got my licence! Yeay!

It takes me more than a decade, to get with it. If you really know me, driving is my least favourite and clearly the lowest priority for me. I guess I still have that Singapore mindset in me, if there’s public transport in the area, we are good.

I wish you could see and feel what I have achieved so far, Mak.

So my first #driverconfessions will be…

Do not tailgate!

Taiyaki

MasyaAllah I have been blessed with friends who has been nothing short of amazing and generous.

A few weeks ago, Mira and Ery surprised me with a Taiyaki pan! It’s been sitting in my eBay cart for the longest time! but I didn’t really see a need for it to checkout. Thank you Mira and Ery! We love it! More tea time treats!

Yesterday we pulled it out and make it! I’m not a big fan of red bean. So I decided to make my favourite cheese Taiyaki!

It came out amazing! I used the recipe from Chopstick Chronicles. Link is here. The only thing I change is using cake flour instead of plain flour. And I was too impatient to let it rest for 30mins. So I just did it anyways and it turns out great!
