What Time Does Not Erased: Love for Each Other

(Pic of our feet, taken back in 2013, during Banghuris Homestay Trip with Sahabat Media)

Here’s sharing a little something with all of you out there. I know I have been writing about travel alot lately, and haven’t been really doing any writing that really comes from the depth of my heart. So here goes. :) A little encounter that melted my heart today. It’s 16th September 2014. A Public holiday in Malaysia in conjunction of Malaysia Day. Since it is a public holiday, my husband does not have to go to work, and spent his time with me and son at home. Nothing much to tell there, nothing interesting. Just a restful and peaceful day at home where we took a good rest, sleeping together whole day to heal the fatigue bodies.

Come evening when everyone is fully rested, we decided that it is time to get a a haircut as both husband and son’s hair is growing way too long to look presentable or neat. So we made a little trip to the barber.

The  trip to the barber to get a haircut for both hubby and son made me a happier person. Why? Cuz while we were at the barber, we met an old family doctor who saw me and hubby through our very naughty college years, pregnancy and the birth of our son. It’s almost a decade since we met this doctor and what he said during the short encounter melted my heart. When he saw our son while the barber was cutting his hair, he said WOW three times, saying how the boy has grown.

The doctor told me that my son looks exactly like my husband; an exact carbon copy, and was practically amazed how tall the boy is now as the last time he saw the boy, he was just a screaming, tiny baby no taller than the length of his arms. He told me we have done a great job against all odds in raising the boy and I should consider planning for a second child in which I sheepishly replied…perhaps, one day if God wills it. The good doc also told me that I did not change much, still petite and looks like a college girl and it feels like yesterday he gave me mc to skip classes. Gosh, he still remembers I used to pretend to be sick to skip lectures. :P I can’t believe that he still remembers!

This encounter is really heartwarming. It reminds me of love, and sacrifices both my husband and I have done for our little family. The short meeting with the doctor reminds me how my husband took care of both of us singlehandedly from the day our son is born, from taking care of me during confinement to bathing our then newborn son to changing diapers to making milk when I was too exhausted to breastfeed.

Thank you God, for sending me gentle reminders like this whenever I may have forgotten. It was definitely a knock on my head. I was really lucky and privileged to have my husband by my side, taking care of me then. How many husbands out there willing to do so for their wives, I wonder? Most husbands these days would just dump their wives to confinement centres or send them over to their parents to be taken care of throughout the confinement period. Instead of that, he took care both of us, and should we have another child together, I would certainly hope to have a repeated experience.

Time may have change both of us. Circumstances are different now, but deep down, there is something that not even time or anyone else could alter, which is the enduring love that we have for each other. Against all odds, against everything that we both have been put through, we still endure and still love each other, and that, is what mattered most, in my humble opinion. The enduring love.

This encounter is healing to say the least, and I may not say it often, may not show it openly, even. I may be wordy, write lengthy posts and articles, but to be honest, I’m not really expressive when it comes to showing my affection. I’m terrible at that. I feel sorry for my husband sometimes for that. But I believe in saying things I really meant and only during desperate times will I say ‘I love you’ but I do love both my son and husband very much, and I hope both my husband, and my son do know that I love them more than anything else in the world, somehow. Perhaps, from now on, I should be more affectionate to both of them. They are, after all, the loves of my life, given by God to me.

Cleffairy: What God has put together, let no one put asunder. Thank you for sending me reminders. I am indeed blessed.

In 1976, the palace was turned into a museum after the Royal family moved to a new palace.

Cuti Cuti 1Malaysia Pahang- Ancasa Royale Hotel

Have you been to Pekan? It is a town located about 45 kilometers from Kuantan, Pahang. Interestingly about the town, it is not only the Royal Town of Pahang but it is also the birthplace of the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato ‘Seri Najib Tun Razak. More from the town is also a city that is home to the country’s automotive vehicle assembly factories world-renowned brands such as Mercedes Benz.

According to the stories of the elders and the locals here, the town got its name from a type of flower called ‘Bunga Pekan’. It was believed that the Pahang River was covered by flowers. But there is another story that made more sense, which is where it says the town got its name from the ‘pekan’ itself. ‘Pekan’ means small town, market or place where people buy and sell. On the banks of the Pahang River community placements are often made ​​long time ago. So the trade would be done there.

Baba Nyonya Cultural Performance in Melaka Nyonya Village

My First Cooking Competition: Philips Cooking Challenge 2014

Quite some time ago, someone challenged me to a competition. Not writing competition, mind you, but a cooking competition. In public, no less. Now, I’m a competitive person and I like competing healthily with others. Win or lose, it still gives me quite a satisfaction. But cooking in public? That’s a different story altogether. I’m not really a people person and I hate to be in the crowd, but I said ‘Bring it on!’ nevertheless.

And so the briefing came for the competition. It was organized by Philips in Empire Subang Shopping Gallery and you are supposed to use their star product, Philips Airfryer along with other Philips products to cook. Sounds easy? No. It’s not as straight forward as that. During the competition, bloggers will be paired up with a Fitness First Instructor finalists and will have to draw out the theme ingredients for the competition.

Oh boy. I had no idea what I have put myself in to. That only means that you can’t prepare or practice to cook your recipe beforehand and everything had to be impromptu. I was quite nervous, to be honest. What more I have never owned an airfryer before what more cook using one.

Here’s sharing with you the experience that day. ;)

My husband and son was there to give me moral support, so thank God for that. I would have drop dead if they did not. :’(

 photo IMG_20140830_123422_zpslxwuzvbz.jpg

Ingredients were prepared and us participants were given a glimpse of our ingredients.

 photo IMG_20140830_123520_zpsijccjii1.jpg

The basic ingredients are there. Cooking oil, herb and spices, salt, pepper etc

 photo IMG_20140830_123512_zps8bkwuzm8.jpg

Fresh vegetables and fruits are provided too, much to my relief.

 photo IMG_20140830_123534_zpsvps8bfnx.jpg

All things Philips for contestants to use during the competition.  I won’t be blogging much about the products here. :) But if you’d like more information on Philips products and ongoing promotion, please hop over to  https://www.facebook.com/PhilipsHomeLiving.my.

 photo IMG_20140830_123301_zpswhefdnna.jpg

What we’re to really use to cook our main dish is this; Philips Airfryer and Philips Induction Cooker.

 photo IMG_20140830_123314_zpsaqftzfl7.jpg

I took a look at the Airfyer for a few minutes and nearly cried. I had no idea how this works! But luckily for me, the judge of the day. Chef Zam had a quick demo on how to use it and I managed to learn how to use it in no time.

I was paired up with a nice lady known as Sherryl, and drew out the ingredient. We got ‘Salmon’ as our main and I nearly died on the spot. I was quite jinxed. Of all the things! Fish! Yours truly do not eat fish, what more cook one regularly at home. But luckily for me, my lovely partner is familiar with the ingredient and we managed to cook up an edible dish out of it. ;)

 photo IMG_1114_zps4e3l6znn.jpg

This is what Sherryl and I managed to dish out. Airfried Mediterranean Salmon on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes with a side of refreshing citrus salad. We decided to go all healthy and only use salt and pepper to bring out the natural goodness of the salmon fillet. The salad was constructed by tossing diced zucchini, diced capsicums, sliced cherry tomatoes and orange slices. It was then drizzled with lemon juice and olive oil dressings. We did not win, but bagged a consolation prize for it though. So at the end of the day, I was still a happy girl.

Below is what other participants managed to dish out;

Participating in a cooking competition is really new experience for me. I’m so grateful that it turned out okay and even managed to bag a consolation prize of Kitchen Machine worth Rm1.5k.

I’ll give it a spin soon and will tell you what I manage to cook with my new toy, buy in the meantime, please allow me to thank you everyone who made this possible…especially hubby who took all the trouble to be there for me tho already nearly KO from work the night before, friends for their well wishes and prayers, my partner for being adventurous, friends who gave me tips on handling fish in the worst case scenario that I got jinxed and draw fish(which I did. Lol) Ruth for all her ‘gambatte’ gestures throughout the competition and last but not least, Sidney Kan for having enough faith in me to not poison everyone present.

Third Day Lunch Buffet at Bayou Lagoon Park Resort

Remember I mentioned in my previous post that Bayou Lagoon Park Resort is not just your average water park resort and they do cater for seminar and team building needs? Well, throughout our 3D2N stay there we were served meals that is usually served for those who booked for their seminar/event/meeting lunch buffet.

Check out what we had for lunch during our third day there:

 photo IMG_20140824_130653_zpsbtb8cxam.jpg

Mixed mushroom dish in oyster sauce. I’m a huge fan of all things mushroom, so I find this dish very appealing. The mushrooms absorbs the oyster flavours very well and tasted rather meaty.

 photo IMG_20140824_130658_zpsiqzum9wt.jpg

Fu Yong Eggs was a tad rubbery and lacks salt this time around, but still, the minced ingredients in it provides natural flavours.

 photo IMG_20140824_130703_zpswjexmqid.jpg

Buttered fish. Not a fan of fish, but took a bite of it after my friend Emily and husband complained about it and pulled a face. Why? Fish was hard and dry. It was overcooked.

 photo IMG_20140824_130711_zpshzdkn5sa.jpg

Japanese tofu with veggies was perfect. Love this dish very much.

 photo IMG_20140824_130723_zpsrv6a2jab.jpg

Sliced crabstick rolls was adeptly fried. My son loves this so much that he took a refill of this in his platter when he was done with the first.

 photo IMG_20140824_130727_zpstzol3ay4.jpg

Kung Po squid slices, did not manage to try this

 photo IMG_20140824_130733_zpsgxyw03cb.jpg

Prawns in spicy soy sauce was superb and my favourite that day. The prawn was so succulent and juicy and the sauce? The sauce is addictive. I could have this with my plain rice over and over, there is no doubt about that. ;)

 photo IMG_20140824_130745_zpsvcyodkwz.jpg

Lemon chicken was all right. A tad too sweet to my liking but everyone else loves it.

 photo IMG_20140824_130752_zpscjngkx9z.jpg

Sweet corn and minced chicken soup was all right too.Savoury and not overwhelmingly sweet and the creaminess is just to my liking. No complaints here.

 photo IMG_20140824_130811_zps3za9erqg.jpg

Salad and ulam counter was available too

 photo IMG_20140824_130835_zpsbmcyhdyy.jpg

Fresh garden salad for you to assemble your own salad

 photo IMG_20140824_130839_zps3ytl7nf7.jpg

Sliced capsicums if you wish to add them to your salad.

 photo IMG_20140824_130819_zpsfocd7jej.jpg

Potato salad was OK. This time around they used fried wedges instead of boiled potatoes and I think I prefer this more than the boiled version.

 photo IMG_20140824_130829_zpsosazar3u.jpg

Kerabu tauge. Again I did not sample this and avoid it like a plague as I have intolerance towards bean sprouts.

 photo IMG_20140824_130931_zps3pmdcdxp.jpg

Cream puffs is available for dessert. Son loves this but I gave it a miss.

 photo IMG_20140824_130922_zpsnd2puebj.jpg

Moist chocolate cake was sinfully delicious.

 photo IMG_20140824_130849_zpskl8a7xjq.jpg

But the Butter Cake won my heart instead. I just love the sliced roasted almond on top.

 photo IMG_20140824_130901_zps8o3c8due.jpg

Angel cake. No comment. Did not sample this either.

 photo IMG_20140824_130854_zpsjon4k9ks.jpg

Bread pudding tasted all right, but rather wobbly in texture.

 photo IMG_20140824_130908_zpsimjytvt5.jpg

Jelly pudding was pretty refreshing.

 photo IMG_20140824_130911_zpstxqqppdh.jpg

Kuih ketayap. This roll of traditional nyonya kuih was filled generously with sweet shaved coconut filling. Quite nice but I only had one.

 photo IMG_20140824_130843_zps8nrvyero.jpg

Pulut inti was lovely and I wished I had more rooms in my tummy for it.

 photo IMG_20140824_134721_zpsx3gkmy1c.jpg

Saw a refreshing fruit cocktail at the beverage counter, so I took some and wash down my meal with it.

Overall, the food prepared that day was satisfying. There is rooms for improvements but still, what they served make quite a good luncheon for seminars and whatnot.
