This blog is full of cobwebs, dust, etc.
The owner must be very lazy @ run out of ideas @ sick (hopefully not) @ very, very busy.
well....i am very busy, extremely busy.
I've just came back home from a week and a half trip to Kuala Lumpur, Johor and Lumut.
Phew...the trip was nice though.
However, just wait til I list down all the things that I have to complete back home.
My brother-in-law is getting married on the 23 August 2007, so, it's less than 2 weeks.
I have to help prepare lots of things.
-there's wedding gifts (hantaran) from both side that I have to decorate-7 from each side, and don't ask me why it's 7 from the groom's side and also 7 from the bride's (total 14). I was asked to decorate them , not being fussy about it, ok.
-need to prepare the wedding favour, which consists of candy, daisy cookies, chocolate chips cookies(if I am up to it), bunga telur ( we'll be using a wood goblet- with a boiled egg inside)-the goblet is originally designed by my creative niece,
and some yellow glutinous rice (pulut semangat-as what've been told by my sister-in-law).
All this will be nicely decorated and put inside an individual custom made paperbag.
hmmm...how is that as a wedding favor??
-i still have to complete some beadwork on my dress (baju kurung) and my daugther's.
-have to print custom-design stickers for the paperbags (which also been designed by my creative niece)
-have to help my 'ever dearest' to prepare a visual presentation for the reception lunch.
so...how's that? do u think I am up to it?? I don't think so, but I'll try.
i've baked some of the chocolate chips cookies, but by the end of the day, only half remain. the other half have been eaten by the kids... what a challenge.
And I also baked and iced some of the daisy cookies, only to end up with fingerprints on them. (someone, or rather two people have felt so tempted to touch them while the cookies are left to dry).
So, I need much patient, and extra hands, and extra times....
i'll post the picture here when i'm done.
And for now...off to the kitchen...have to bake more cookies..
