While I was busy making myself a birthday cake, I managed to 'persuade' my husband to cook for the whole family...hehehe. But after friday prayers, he was called to a meeting and did not get back until 5.30 pm. I thought I would have to make dinner after all.
But when he got back, he was ready to cook. This came from someone who did not cook for at least 15 years, since his students days. He even let me off to play badminton with my friends. Yippee! The menu was simple, ayam goreng berlada, kangkung belachan and scrambled eggs with chillies.
When I got home (to the smell of fried chicken), dinner was nowhere near ready. I volunteered to help but my husband was adamant to finish what he started. My kids were impatient and cried of being hungry. That was the added pressure for my husband...hehehe
After Maghrib, dinner was finally ready. Well, what can I say, it was delicious... especially when I'm not making it...hehehe. Thank you dear husband! During dinner he told Kak Long that he used to make simple food when he was a student to the kids' astonishment. He complimented himself on the food, of course... hehehe... Lantak la... But it was definitely the best birthday present in a long time (p/s: Until NekkRock started taking new orders, that is...muahahaha!)
Tumbuk, jangan tak tumbuk!
Guna lesung batu, beb!
Kangkung masak belachan...
Ayam goreng berlada... our favourite!
Well, all in all, I had a beautiful birthday this year. Thank you everyone. Love you all...muahs!
