Sugar is not used to outside world yet, as Mummy is too protective about letting her out on her own. While Munchkin is playing like her second home, running around chased by the girls! Can't get a good shot of her at all! Lol!

I've been surfing around and visiting blogs and I see many beautiful family photos and happy moments. Previously, the minute my other half knew I became a blogger, he made me promise not to reveal anything about our personal life and details. I just kept quiet, not saying yes nor no.
Today I am going to bend the rule a bit, maybe one time, this time. In fact, this post might be taken off anytime as I see necessary. So don't be surprised if its no longer here in future...lol!
So here, I am attaching my recent family photo, during the recent Raya hols.

(Sorry Gattina, my computer was under Virus attack last week and I lose all unsaved photos incl the COTs logo - will need to copy again later! lol)
Fun enough to bring some joy
But you are not what you seem you are
You make me laugh behind my tears
You had me cry behind my smile
Who are you?
You vent upon my cheers
You glee upon my mishaps
Why do you?
I know who you are!
Someone with a cold heart
And a cruel mind....
But I am basked in my blessings
And I thank Him all the time
And I don't care what you are!
And don't worry my dear reader friends
That someone is definitely Not You ;)

150gm dhal - soaked
1 onion - diced
1 garlic - chopped
1 red chili - chopped
1/2 tbsp curry leaves - thinly sliced
1/2 tsp cumin
2 tbsp rice flour
Soak dhal for a few hours.
Blend with cumin coarsely.
Add all other ingredient.
Shape into paties and fry to golden brown.
Crispy on the outside, soft and yummy in the inside... Think about it!

I just realised that dhal is not known at some parts of the world, esp America and Europe, so for the benefits of our friends, I am attaching here some info and nutritious value of dhal.
Toor Dhal is in fact a pigeon pea and not a lentil as you might expect from its appearance. The dhal is prepared by milling dried pigeon peas to remove a thick coat and to split the seed. The origin of the plant is unclear, although they are now mainly grown in India. Young green pigeon peas are eaten in the Caribbean. Pigeon peas are noted for being highly nutritious, as well as for their delicate sweet flavour.
Typical nutritional values per 100g cooked pigeon pea dhal:
energy 496 kJ / 117 kcal

How do they get fed? Being a 5 year old, it didn't occur to me that the kitties might need food...lol! I only wanted to play with them. Somebody, or the mother cat must have been feeding them, because they are a playful, active and healthy bunch.
Until today, I wonder where the kittens had gone to, because I don't find it reasonable that they left on their own. Someone must have taken them somewhere. Or was it actually a dream....? I don't think so.
Anyway, not until a few days ago, after I related the story, it struck me like a lightning bolt. The three little kittens that I missed so much is actually already here in my home! They're Oreo, the Cream Cameo, Minty, Blue-smoke, and Honeybun, the red and white bi-colour cats! Of course they are not the same kitten that I found, but somehow, here at this stage in my life, I have them all! All 3 of them!
And I believe this is partly, the power of dreams and visualization. How these furbabies entered my life can be read here. The rest is the law of attraction, and most importantly God's will.

The red carpet to the 'pelamin', where the bride and bridegroom seated throughout the ceremony.
Live music, an entrancing traditional melody called 'Gamelan'.
Believe it or not, these are some of the flowers left after they dismantle the decor. I took it first, then informed my neighbour later...lol!
My sweet neighbour gave me this fruit basket and 2 'Bunga Telur' as a token of appreciation for being a 'cooperative' neighbour...awwwh!
On top of it all, the caterer sent us these dishes, nasi beriani, ayam tomato, dinding daging, dalca, acar buah and kueh puteri 2 sebilik just before the dinner setting. So sweet and thoughtful of them!

The tents put up in front of my house and several other neighbours too. A total of 10 houses, maybe.
Ahah...! This morning view at 7.30 am. Simply refreshing. Its also starting to get busy with workers arriving and on with their duties. I know for sure, the electrician worked from last night until at least 5.45 am this morning, when my phone alarm rings.
Ok, now, what's with the caramel? Actually, I just made the most splendid caramel myself yesterday! Haha! One that I actually enjoyed eating, that is!
It was truly simple and easy and delicious recipe. You should try it!
CREAM CARAMEL PUDDING
Beat the egg, 6tbsp sugar and milk with a beater.

At one moment she calls out after everyone, telling them to behave and stay at one place. Another time you'll find her chasing after each of them, and wrestling them! It was so funny!
Let's share some fun time here!
And oh!... There are times when you hear one of the kids meowing much too loud for your comfort, that you just have to check it out. So you can guess, who's the bully?

That is why now I take extra effort to make the others still feel loved and cherished.
Last week, Oreo, (much to his disgust) gets a great hair cut! Lion cut. LOL!! Now we are anxiously waiting for his hair to grow back into its original majestic fluff and shine.
Minty gets extra playtime every now and then, because that's what he enjoys most.
Hide n Seek!
Time-off from the little ones...!
