Conclusion Story of Kitten Tails

So, the little girl was actually yours truly. Until today I still remember that cute little kittens, I believe were persians because of the fluffy coat. Someone had left them there mysteriously because they were not there before, and there were no signs of any mother cat around. Or were there? I don't know.

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.

Kitten Tails

"...it was a beautiful day. A five year old girl had a mission. She was really excited. The day before, she was playing in an empty house just vacated by her neighbour who just transfered to another district. It was a government teacher's quarters and the garage was unlocked.While playing hide and seek there, she saw three little kittens! It was the cutest cats she had ever seen! They were so fluffy and rounded she just had to hold them. She remembered vividly, that the colours were creamy white, grey and orange. But she also scared them away! They all hid in the drain under the drain cover. And the cover was really heavy. She waited for the kitten to come out, but, it just wouldn't. It was getting dark, and already time to get home. So she decided to come back the next day and play with the kitties.

Upon reaching the empty house, she quietly open the garage door, and the kitties were playing with each other. It was so fun watching them play, but as soon as they sensed her presence, the kitties hid under the drain again. The little girl only managed to see glimpses of the three kittens here and there when they sneaked out to check her whereabouts. She spent a few hours there before realising that she got tired and need to go home. But she was too happy indeed.

The next day she went to the empty house again hoping to play with the kitties. But they were no longer there! She looked everywhere, but there were no signs of their whereabout at all! The kittens dissapeared as mysteriously as it appeared. Heartbroken, the little girl went home. Everyday she will go to the empty house to check if the kitties had come back, but they never did!

So one day, after several hopeless visits, tearfully, the little girl vowed, "I'll find it someday...." And every now and then, the girl will remember the three little furballs which sometimes made her smile, and sometimes made her teary, thinking of that brief sweet encounter.

The Wedding

The 'Pelamin'
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!

Caramels and Weddings

So, what's with the caramels and the weddings? They're both so sweet! And what is the connection, again? Simple! I love both! I love caramels to indulge in my not-that-many sweet tooth cravings, and I love weddings' food! Lol!

I was excited when my neighbour put up this gazebo lighting for her son's wedding tonight. It was beautiful! They had the lights on for testing last night. It was a garden wedding concept. Simply a fairytale sight!

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.

Its going to be even more beautiful and extravagant tonight on the main event. If I can justify it enough, I will blog about it, or at least put up some pretty pictures here! :)

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!

And as usual, I can only manage to paste a blurred image of the pudding here. Actually its not meant to be sharp, so you don't have to drool over it...hahah!! (As if....)

Well, this happened 10 minutes after it gets out of the steamer. Still pipping hot! Now barely a quarter left in the refrigerator..! (I should get there fast, before it went completely missing..!! Lol!)

It was truly simple and easy and delicious recipe. You should try it!


Sugar - 6 tbsp
Milk - 1 glass
Vanilla essense-1/2 tsp
Sugar -2 tbsp
Make caramel out of 2 tbsp sugar. Dissolve the sugar in a pan until it turns brown, and pour directly into the bottom of the pudding dish. This has to be done quickly as the sugar turns hard very fast.

Caramel pudding:
Beat the egg, 6tbsp sugar and milk with a beater.
Add vanilla essence.
Pour the mixture on top of the caramel and steam for 20 minutes.
Let it cool, refrigerate and serve it cold.
