Holidaying

I have been to Western Europe last June with my sister-in-law and her daughter. This year we planned to go to Japan but it didn't materialize. So I have a change of plan. I want to visit Eastern Europe. This time my sister-in-law is not keen. I need to take someone with me and the most appropriate person would be my mum.
Europe tour is rather expensive. Last year I just paid for myself. This time I have to pay for my mum too. Luckily my husband sponsored half for my mum. The tour is RM10K each.
I will bring along some euro..
Can't wait for the long holidays..

It's Father's Day!

Life Lessons

You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The woman I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.By Joanna Fuchs

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all fathers..

Assam Curry Fish

Image
I love assam curry fish and I usually would buy it. My mum can cook well too. But I didn't make the effort to learn it. However, this morning, I wanted to try cooking it but it would be very simple...
 I got the Baba's curry powder and the assam jawa ready.

 Stirr-fried the sliced big onions and the chopped garlic.

 Poured in the curry powder paste and the assam jawa juice. Added a pinch of salt and some sugar.

 Added the fish and simmered them.

Lastly, served it with rice..
yummy..

Exercise

Image
Those days I used to do stretching when I was at the gym. Sometimes I did it in the park too. But I haven't done any stretching at the park or gym ever since I started helping at my husband's shop.
Well, last week I had the urge to try those equipments at the park. I just did on two of them..
It was a hot morning..I just jogged a bit..


and when I reached this junction, I had to go for my favorite equipment..

 I used to be able to do a quick ten but this time I couldn't reach that..

Next, I tried this push-up equipment. It's much easier.

It was a good sweat-out..I would love to do it again..
