Cooking Class

Finally i've enrolled to a cooking class, after years of searching. It was always either too expensive, too far or the timing is just not right for me. So Seri Pacific Hotel Cooking Class just right for me in every way. A
charming and cheery hotel in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

I'm learning from the Guru himself, Chef Ridzuwan.

Mother-to-Be

Quite a while that i posted something personal and about my life in general. Ups and downs, good news and not so good news. Happy to say that i'm a mother-to-be and insyallah due in Feb, 2011. And not so good news is that i'm not feeling well most of the time and food didn't stay longer in my stomach. Emotional roller coaster to the extreme.

During the emotional time i've permed my hair for the first time in my life, now i've these crazy curls to deal with now. My hubby said i look like lady from the Red Kebaya movie period. The first week of Ramadan was a real test to me, gastric getting worse and i lose some weight.

After 3 month pregnant, two nights ago i can really feel my baby inside me and the feeling is so beautiful, touching and happy. Prior to that i was so depressed over a few incident during that long weekend. With that beautiful feeling i felt alive and the next day i am back to my normal self with the help of  Kella's Feel Good Menu. I'll share with you that menu in my next post.

Cooking Time

The FAQ after i got married....do you cook?

My friends and family curious and wondering about my domestic abilities. My brother, Emi have made a loud statement that among three of his sisters, he have not tasted my cooking. I guess he forgot about my spaghetti bolognese 2 years ago which like once in a lifetime experience. For my wedding he gave me cooking pot as a wedding gift... i love his dark humor.

But i don't blame them, i myself wondering the same things. In my entire life few had the privilege of tasting my cooking. Mostly i cook when i'm in love which is a rare ocassion. Now that i'm married and in love, yesterday, i cooked our first dinner. Lucky me, my hubby being very polite about it. Menu for our dinner 'soup sawi' and 'fried eggs with soy sauce gravy'.

Sorry guys no picture since the kitchen is in a little bit mess.
