I used to be such a recluse and only stay home, day in, day out and only spend time with my boys. Every single things was centered on them. But I come to realize that it doesn’t do me any good that I don’t go out much and socialize with the rest of the world. It makes me feel jaded and unhappy. And as the boys see me always there, naturally, appreciation does not come easy. And feeling unappreciated makes me an unhappy person. And an unhappy person makes a rotten wife and a grumpy mother.
I realized how important it is for me to be a happy individual in order to be a happy wife and mother. And so, I started to go out, make friends, socialize, and drag my boys with me to have fun during food reviews and events…and to be honest, I feel much, much better than being cooped up at home.
Neway, it was Saturday again, and instead of staying home, we joined the good folks from Blooggersdotcom for the first Bloggersdotcom gathering cum product launching. It’s a pretty cool event where we get to mingle with new faces and oh… get to taste good food, of course.
Recognize her? She’s Dato’ Khadijah, one of Malaysia’s renown Malay artist, who also happens to be the owner of Khadijah’s Kitchen, Setapak.
The assorted Malay cakes in her restaurant is a must try. They are all authentic and yummylicious. 😀 My son loves these so much that he nearly cleared all that’s on our table.
The Laksa Utara is to die for. I’m always picky when it comes to Laksa, but these are absolutely divine.
On hubby’s plate; prawn fritters and fried noodles. I did not try the fried noodles, so no comment on that. You got to go to my husband’s blog to find out how it tastes like, but the prawn fritters are adeptly fried and perfectly paired with their special homemade chilli sauce. A lovely dish that I will recommend should you want to have hi-tea here in Khadijah’s Kitchen.
Yummylicious cake from one of the sponsors, Cheez&Choc. 😀 Kiddo loves these.

Fun games during the event. I didn’t not participate. was too busy stuffing my face with good food and cakes.
But it was my lucky day. My blogger friend Nizam won a shawl by Puji and gave em to me as pressie. The shawl is really lovely, I must say. Great for Muslimah fashion or a mere accessory to complement your outfit.
Cake cutting ceremony between Blooggersdotcom and representative from Video Brochure. The cake from Coklatmanis2u was really nice. I shamelessly had a few helpings of it.
One for the album 😀 It was indeed lovely to be able to have fun and meet new people. And meet plenty of generous sponsors who sponsored goodies for the event that day. A refreshing and well-spent weekend, I must say.
