Random holidays pics...


I haven't got the luxury of time to blog lately even though it's school holidays... been busy attending to my children and other things... Just wanna share some of the photos to recap my activities during the holidays...











Been practising culinary skills with my daughters...  






Attending wedding and meeting old friends, which happened every weekend during the holidays...






Went shopping with the family, esp the girls (the boys would prefer staying home playing their favourite video games)...

The day of Ashura


Today is the tenth of Muharram and it's also known as the day of Ashura... 

The Day of `Ashura’ has great virtue, and tremendous sanctity (hurma). The virtue of fasting it was known among the Prophets (peace be upon them all). Both Prophet Nuh and Prophet Musa (peace be upon them both) fasted it.

The Prophet (Allah bless him & give him peace) used to fast this day even in Mecca, though he had not yet ordered others to do so, as mentioned in both Bukhari and Muslim. [Bukhari (2002), Muslim (1125)]
When he migrated to Medina, and found the People of the Book fasting this day and venerating it, he ordered the Muslims to fast it, and encouraged it so much that even the children would fast it. 

It has been reported from Abd Allah ibn `Amr ibn al-`As (Allah be pleased with him), that “Whoever fasts `Ashura’ it is as if he has fasted the entire year. And whoever gives charity this day it is like the charity of an entire year.”

Tea time n breakfast...



In the last few weeks, I've been drinking a lot of coffee (and still craving for it...) but now it's time for me to switch to the good old green tea and make sure that it's in my daily intake (even only once a day...)

To start with I have to make sure that it's the first thing that I drink in the morning, so breakfast it is...but I could not just sip the plain green tea with nothing... so it needs a complementary meal to go with.Thus, I need to be a little more creative to start my day than just having a toast or sandwich...


Green tea and tiramitsu cake (with coffee as an ingredient)



...with rice porridge


 ...with banana pancake (lempeng pisang)



 And...Fetuccini with prawn
