I am blessed with Good Health


A few days ago, a best friend of mine visited me. We have had small chats, updating each other on a few interesting events of our lives, sharing thoughts and emotional moments.

I was blessed.... blessed and loved by family members and friends.

I must be glad, most importantly because I am blessed with good health.

On the one hand, she wished me happy birthday., on the other hand, she reminded me on a sad and unforgettable event we went through on my birthday last year... 2012.

That day, she can't and won't be bothered with my birthday. That day, I sent her for her first chemotherapy...she was diagnosed with breast cancer...we broke down and cry...

a year past....in front of me now...I am so blessed that she is alive...I love you friend!

Recipe: 水糕, Rice Pudding


I have been missing the childhood rice pudding that used to be sold by an old lady near my late grandpa's place. Perhaps it is the taste, .... perhaps it is the memory that I am searching for...

Grandpa used to bring us to 'triangle street' to eat roti canai (and now... I can't hold back my tears)... he would bring an egg and can't wait to ask the 'a ne' to add it on and making it to roti telur. That's grandpa! Grandpa...I miss you...I have been missing you!!! ...tears rolling down...



The recipe is good but not perfect....it doesn't has 'that' taste... I won't give up grandpa....I'll keep searching...searching for our memories!
