Yes, surprisingnya it is already FRIDAY! Gosh...time really flies! Yesterday, while we were dining out (as usual, Mrs Lazybum dot com is as her name, lazy to cook!), I was arguing with hubby about what day was yesterday. He said Thursday and I just don't want to agree with him and insisted it was Wednesday. When we came back, checked the calender....oopsss....it was Thursday and today is Friday!!!! I guess the hustle bustle in the house makes me forget about the days and dates...or....am I getting older than I thought! But I just hope that I am not loosing my mind...naudzubillah....Ahakss......
The interior renovation of the house is 80% done. They should be able to finish the latest by early next week if not this weekend. I've started dumping my 'harta karun' into the cabinets whichever are ready. I must say, it's not an easy job! Climbing up and down the steps of the ladder is tiring. That shows how much I need to loose these 'extra baggage'! Come to think of that, how lucky of you Rinn...to have that kind of metabolism rate! And speaking of weight, two nights ago, we went to the pharmacy as hubby needs to find some medicine. There, we saw a weighing scale. I went on the scale first and as usual the reading never budge! Then hubby went on it and he was so surprised to see how much he has put on. So to comfort him (and me as well!), I just said out loud, "Not to worry abang, the scale is out of order!". Both the ladies in the pharmacy just laughed at that brutal statement! Huhuhu.....
For today's recipe, it'll be another cookie recipe that I've made for Eid. This time the recipe came from my dear next door neighbour, Kak Ana. Not only she willingly gave me the recipe but also provided me with the icecream powder. What will I do without her.....Thank you so very much Kak Ana dear.....

|1. Shabana email@example.com>> Hi Shabs!!! What a lovely surprise to see you here! About the icecream powder, don't think you'll find in Malawi. The powder looks and smells something like Nido. Perhaps you can just use that one. As for the cutters, you should be able to get them in South Africa. Try Chef n Icers in Sandton. Or maybe Honey Bee at Oriental Plaza (if I am not mistaken). How are the kids and my brother? Hope all are well. Take care and miss you lots!
