Dinner @ Thursday 28 August 2008

Below recipe was inspired from Mak Lang.

Ayam Masak Merah

I was inspired by this blog, so this is my attempts to decorate our meals. Not as professional as Kak LG aka LemonGrass though, but am trying. I really impressed with her cooking and decorations.

So these are my attempts to make our meals looked appetising. Actually Haqimie said, he was full already, but I insisted him to eat since Mama made a 'round' shape rice. And yes, he ate. I'm happy since we know he is a very picky and less eater in the house.

For Papa, garnished with some blanched broccoli florets

I used milk bottle's cap to shape up the rice for Haqimie

Haqimie still quite not well. The fever season, I suppose. I had to send him over to the nursery together with Qayyum. What to do? Mummy got to go to the office.

Hujan lebat

Kat luar sana, hujan lebat. Alamak, heavennya kalo time nih ada kat umah kan, leh tido dengan besh skali, tapi apakan daya, smalam dan EL, ari ni kena la keje kan.

Dah berapa jam dah ujan ni, mau banjir lak jalan nak ke umah aku (Bandar Baru Sungai Buloh). Dah la jalan tu sumer still under construction.

Parents in law ari ni balik Taiping. Aku sempat jumpa FIL aje, MIL masa tu dah pegi shopping baju ngan Mak Ndak. Hmm malas nak tanya banyak tapi rasanya kedatangan diorang tu ada kena mengena ngan problematic couple tu la... Dah abih sumer kaum keluarga dirayunya soh pujuk the other half. The other half lak kali ni mmg keras ati giler, agaknya dah reach to the peak kot kesabarannya.

Awien dan Nisa x datang pon, sbb ujan kot, half day la kot. Arrgh burink ok, just ada AM ngan S aje, layan iTunes la, aku nyanyi sukati cam production room ni aku yang punya.

Sambil2 tu jenguk blog ni, blog tu, blog ni, blog tu.....

EL

Aku rasa bulan ni bulan paling banyak aku EL. Why? Anak2 asik demam je, termasuk la papa dan aku. Musim demam kan skang ni?

This is the price we have to pay when I decided to carry on with my career and sending the kids to the nursery.

The docs said, this kind of things are normal when u're sending kiddies to the nursery. If not mine, then others... and so on.

Whatta do, got no choice.

Yesterday, Haqimie pulak demam. Aku EL lagi.

Few hours later, sweated all over the body. Feels okay but still headache till today.

~Penat~ 5th

EL again. Today, Qayyum's getting better.

Got news from Awien that Julie's father had passed away on Saturday's noon. Will be buried/cremated (am not sure that time) on Wednesday.

~Penat~ 4th

Sunday.

Went to the clinic again. Still high. The doc gave him another suppository. She said this is normal since I'm sending the children to the nursery and it's not dengue. Again, relieved. My Qayyum's is getting thinner. So pity on him.

Papa brought us to The Pavillion and KLCC because he had to take some promotion photos that Ko wanted. I was so tired, with sleepless nights and tiring journeys.

That midnite, we brought Qayyum to the Emergency Department in Sungai Buloh Hosp. Waited for almost an hour. The doctor said it's normal and not dengue. Again. Relieved. Alhamdulillah.

~Penat~ 3rd

Saturday.

I decided to take my Saturday leave coz Qayyum was still not OK, I smsed Julie, I don't care whether she approved the leave or not, all I can think was my son's condition.

Actually, Papa was Saturday off today, but since he already took an EL the day before, so he went to work.

Qayyum's temperature getting better.

That night we went to have dinner at 222 with Enal, Yus and Along (Mak Ndak's daughter). They told us the latest news about the couple. The situation getting worse anyway.

That night Qayyum's temp went high again.

~Penat~ 2nd

Friday.

Still hot. Am really worried so I smsed Julie, told her that my son still not OK. I thought of taking a full day EL. But then, around 10 am, Julie called. She asked about my work progress. Then only she asked about my son's condition. She insisted I will come on Saturday and finish up all. What? Ridiculous! That's all I can think.

At first Papa wanted to take 1/2 day EL, but then when Qayyum's temperature went down, I said I want to go to work, otherwise I can't finish my work on time. Yes, I know, me sounds ridiculous, but I thought he was OK already. So Papa took full day leave and sent me to the office at 1.30 pm. Julie was not around, his father was still in the ICU. Heard that the doc asked them to pray. Anyway, I just managed to finish half of the PMR 1.

Qayyum's face was so RED and his body's hot. I felt angry to myself for neglecting my own son just because I want to finish my work.

That night was a sleepless night, Qayyum meragam sampai pagi.

~Penat~ 1st

Starting from last Thurday until Monday, those days had been quite hard/busy/tiring but sometimes leisure for me. Why? Because my little Qayyum got high fever on Thursday (39.6ÂșC). At first Kak Ana, the principal of the Taska Shanana called me at 2 pm, told that Qayyum's body was quite hot. She afraid there might be 'sawan tarik'. She also afraid that Qayyum might have dengue fever. So I quickly called Papa (he was at home that time, after came back from setting up that morning). He didn't answered me, then I called my bubbly neighbour, Kak Mimi, asked her to call Papa. Then I called Papa again. Julie was not in, his father was in ICU.

What made me worried was this is the 3rd time Qayyum got a fever in 2 months time. That made me being in an uncontrollable state of mind.

I took half day emergency leave, told Ian. We picked the two kiddies and headed to the clinic. The doctor gave Qayyum the suppository. I asked him whether this is a symptom of dengue fever, but the doctor said no. Dengue fever doesn't come with flu and cough. Well, I relieved. He said, if still not well after 3 days, I should bring him back.

The temperatute went down already. But it went high that night, made me sick worried. Can't sleep, takut sawan tarik.

2 kali

Masuk semalam, dah dua kali dah Si Haqimie mengadu kazen dia, si M* kat taska yang sama dok cubit dia. First time, I didn't take note, coz I thought it was just kiddy things.

Then, yesterday, once again he told me that M pinched him again. I asked him to show where, he showed me at the thigh area but I didn't get the chance to have a look since we were in the car and I'm holding Qayyum on my lap. So I thought, nevermind, I'll have a look later on.

Then, before we went to sleep, I put a diaper on him and that was when I saw a bruise on his thigh. So rasanya Qimie tak buat cerita la kan, lebam tu biru okey! I asked him again, who did this (I thought he's going to point out some other names). But he answered, Abang M* cubit Abang.

Grrr... yes as a mother, I'm angry.

Tapi memikirkan tentang all the consequences yang akan terjadi if I were to complaint to his mother, jadi malas. Dah la diorang laki bini ada krisis, so I think for the time being, aku akan simpan je dulu. Maybe some other time if this kind of thing happen again, I will consult with his father, which is my BIL.

Mentang-mentang anak aku lagi kecik daripada dia, boleh la dia buli?

~Puan Boss~

Puan Boss aku ni ambitious betul la, ada ke dia expect aku boleh siap lagi satu unit, 2 tests, 1 literature, answers ESOK? Dia ingat aku ketuk2 keyboard, layout terus jalan je kot?

Can't she think that I have to update the manuscripts, then separate the answers (the writer didn't separated it), scan aw, layout and lastly put the 2nd colour answers? I think robot will give up also. When I said cannot, she asked me back, cannot aaa? Nevermind la u try!

Dah la siap satu unit, dia dah sibuk nak check, pastuh kalo ada yang tak kena kat mata dia, dan-dan tu jugak suruh amend. Abeh tu cenggana la aku nak siap ikut deadline?

I know she's so excited since English is her subject. She always said that she always feel excited everytime her English got into production. What la, nak excited, excited la sengsorang. She asked me once, don't u feel excited when doing my English? Then I said, I've been doing all ur English subjects for years. What is there to be excited (while laughing-laughing la)?

Duh, nak excited apa kebendanya? Boring la, give me some other subjects pulak la... I always got no chance to do other subjects for 1st layout. Kalau bekas-bekas nak dekat final ada la, wat per. tak teruja langsung! Unless if I am doing different titles of general readings ka, okey la jugak macam masa kat EXPO dulu, leh la jugak sambil layout sambil membaca.

Skang ni nak baca apa? Tolong jawab soklan UPSR, PMR, SPM ada la.... Dah la English sesaja! Arrhhhh, bagi la Sejarah ke, Science ke, KH ke.....

Apa la, even if i try pon (maybe amik langkah2 utk duduk sahaja sepanjang ari depan mac, tak payah pegi toilet, tak payah makan, tak payah wat air) STILL it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to finish everything. Maybe she expect me to stayback. The answer is, NO.

I have to go back on time, Papa is not feeling very well since last Sunday. He got the asthma attack. We even went to the Emergency Room in Sungai Buloh Hospital at midnite last Sunday. We only got back home around 2 am. Even though he rarely got the attack, but still I'm worried.

Ayam Masak Cili Api dengan Brokoli

Photobucket

Brokoli is may favourite vege. This one is last nite's dinner.

This recipe is just the same as here, but I put brocoli instead of kucai.

I found that Haqimie also liked this dish. Hmm dah ada gang dah. Papa tak suka, Qayyum tatau lagi, tak try - nak bagi try takut sakit perut lak, baby lagi kan.

AYAM GORENG KUNYIT BERSAYUR

Photobucket

Buat resipi ni sebab part isi ayam terlalu la banyak (sebab we all suka makan boney parts only). Usually kalau ada part isi ni, hanya untuk jadi rencah dalam bihun goreng ke, mee goreng ke. Tapi teringin pulak makan ayam goreng kunyit macam kat kedai tu, tapi dah modified la.

Spaghetti Bolognaise Goreng

Photobucket

This menu was prepared last Saturday. Since Papa was not around (he had to work) and me being so lazy to cook (with 2 little boys - what do you expect - can hardly do anything!), so I cook this dish.

The difference is I fried altogether (save time to wash so many plates).

Ingredients:
1/4 packet spaghetti - prepared as per instructions, set aside
1/2 tin bolognaise sauce (Prego)
1 tsp cooking oil
1 tbsp garlic butter (can't remember the brand)
1 onion - sliced thinly
1/2 packet RAMLY's minced beef
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
Some water
Cauliflower florets
Salt

• Heat oil and garlic butter. Saute onion slices till fragrant.
• Put in minced beef and cauliflower florets. Stir till both ingredients cooked.
• Add in bolognaise sauce, dried rosemary and some water.
• Then, put in cooked spaghetti and salt to taste.

Boleh?

Boleh?

Ari ni ari sabtu, selalu ari sabtu ramai gak yang kena datang keje. Tapi ari ni, production team cuma ada 3 orang aje. Aku, Nisa dan Abang Man.

Yang ironinya, mmg KITORANG bertiga sahaja yang ada dalam keseluruhan editorial team nih. Editor sorang pon takde termasuk la si Manager. Tatau la pulak kot Julie bagi tau diorang smalam, sumer editor leh cuti ari Sabtu. Maklum la sejak kebelakang ni aku mmg on time dah cau cin cau.

Boleh?

Account department tolak tepi la ekk... itupon ada sorang je yang datang.

Yang selebihnya kat opis ni sumer marketing sahaja yang ada... untuk meeting bulanan diorang.

Tak ke rugi elektrik bila hanya ada 3 orang staffs sahaja - yang tentunya bukan la nak buat keje sangat, sementelah ramai yang takde, kitorang pon terus jadik takde mood - better la kitorang surfing kan.... walau pon dateline ari nih, tapi memandangkan aku mmg dah awal2 dah habaq, it's ridiculous untuk siap 1st proofs dalam masa 4 hari... Tapi boss is boss, she said she still want me to siapkan by saturday.

So hasilnya? Mmg la tak boleh siap. Sepatutnya whole department cuti je ari nih.... Tak pasal2 aku kena anta anak2 aku ke nursery ari nih!

p/s 1: Awien tak datang, so dia secara automatik tak termasuk dalam statistik di atas.

p/s 2: Aku rasa aku dah terikut2 gaya madulebah punya blogging style... (terpengaruh - sori ekkk)
