Flower Cake for My CheGu

28th May 2009. Sabrie & Syukrie came home from their Kafa, religious school and peeped at the kitchen, half shouting 'Mama'! Hhmm ... what is it now? I was at my last sentence on my email to Prof Koshy, my dissertation supervisor.

'Mama? Where's our cupcakes?' The teacher's day is tomorrow Mama!' ... Aah? My mind was still at the last sentence..

"The cakes remember? You suppose to make cupcakes for the potluck party.." ... This time, they got my attention. What cake? "Mama ... I told Ustazah we will be bring cupcakes for all us" .

All of us? .. and how many of US? "... 100 je la Mama "

100!!!! Eh mana sempat sayang.. Mama ada conference call lagi pagi esok, kerja sekolah Mama ni banyak lagi nak tulis... (face like Puss in the Boot..) .. Okay takpe , I call Ustazah okay ..

"Assalamualaikum Ustazah .. ni Mama Sabrie dan Syukrie. Sabrie kata dia dah cakap nak bawak cupcake untuk semua tapi maaf Ustazah tak sempat buat untuk semua .. 50 aje boleh? Waalaikumussalam .. laa tak apa Puan, apa yang boleh saja.... Alhamdullillah terima kasih..."

Okay boys .. 50 cupcakes only okay -- I've spoken to Ustazah. " Thanks Mama .. you're making the Cookie Monster right?"

Hmm cookie monster for kids ... flowers would be better for your Ustazah kan?

"Hmm ya... you're right. Flower Cupcakes would be good .. (smiling) ...We love you Mama"

Big hug, . .. I love you too boys ... (while my fingers sms'ing Mak's hp no .. SOS!!)

22nd May 2009. I am on leave today ... study leave.
Yup .. STUDY Leave .. an unrecorded leave taken to complete my thesis which is due next week. Spent all day writing, research, write again .. and only managed to add 400 words. OMG ... this is bad.

Clock is ticking.. Ad Din & Fiqah's birthday party tomorrow and I have not start anything!! Ok .. cool down Niza. Like Mr VK used to say .. "Apa-apapun maruah mesti mau jaga". Aduss .. so 8.00pm sharp I start
baking the cakes. One big orange cake and
another 30 chocolate cupcakes.

Cakes in the oven .. and now its time to mould
my Big Bird.
Hubby came and peep .. "Dear , why is your chicken so togel?"
Yaiks! Ooo how la now .. shall I make the feathers? Ha! Mak's jam tarts!!
Hmm just cut them with scissors he he he jadi pun... :)

Now the grass .. Alamak satu PJ cari tak jumpa nozzle ni. Yang ada big grass tip. Big nozzle = huge grass .. But on the Cookie Monster and Big Bird -- they look just fine :)
