My new expertise?

Since the last few days, after the school is over, I've been cooking in the kitchen for the whole week. I know I can cook but yesterday was a breakthrough. I baked a cake! Yes, a cake! It's not something very unusual but it was my first time and it turned out to be very delicious. I made a simple coffee microwave cake, got it from the microwave-oven's recipe book. Very easy.

Today I made another one for my mom. My mom didn't get to taste the first one because my sister and I ate about 3/4. The second one was very special. It was a coffee cake with almonds. Yum yum! The other day I made roast potatoes. Very delicious and simple. The ingredients are potatoes, oil, salt and pepper, and garlic for some flavor. You could always put some oregano.

Seriously, these breakthrough made me really excited in trying other dishes. Another news, my mom is leaving for Padang, Indonesia tonight. Gosh, why everyone disappears when I'm the one who in the school holidays?

Wedding season just started

As soon as the school holidays started, the wedding season will start too. I just don't understand the equation: School holidays = Wedding season. I just got back from a wedding reception in Alor Star. It was my friend sister's wedding. I came there late as everyone today was so busy and need the car. my dad had lunch with his client etc. I didn't meet any of friends since I came there late and took very little amount of photos. Here they are:

The cake, which was very beautiful and nice

The bridal stage (pelamin), very common in Malay wedding receptions.

Throughout the holidays, there are more wedding receptions on the list. So I'm going to gain weight due to the fact that Nasi Minyak is waiting for me...

What are the plans?

I don't know. I'm talking about plans for this coming school holidays which already started few hours ago. I went to school today and found out like half of the school was absent. I was like WTF this morning when I saw the school was clear.

So the plan, so far, going to Kota Kinabalu in December, which I already mentioned on my last post. I'm not sure if I'm going to make it on PMR result day since I will be in KK 22-27 December. I heard few dates for the result day including those in between 22-27 December. I just hope that I'm going to make it on that day. I got a wedding reception coming up this Saturday in Taman Uda. And guess what? A stupid reunion this Sunday!! Primary school reunion on Sunday at City Plaza, and the most hated person will be there. I thought I'm going to be in the flight to Padang this 22 November, but my mom is going there with her colleagues. Too bad, but I don't really care because they're going there with AirAsia which is not my airline.

My grandma already on the bus to KL, and left me here with my sister, again. Unfortunately, she had to go there because my uncle's maid ran away, which I think usual thing that would happen if you take an Indonesian maid. So my grandma has to take care of her grandchild, the cute Aleesya because her father is going to Jakarta tomorrow. It's sad because why the maid had to run away? She was very polite, obey, loyal etc. yet she ran away. Did I mention that she took my uncle's Sony Cybershot T5? That just so not right.

On My Way to KK

I just got an e-mail from Malaysia Airlines. The e-mail has my round trip tickets from Alor Star-Kuala Lumpur-Kota Kinabalu. I'm going to KK with my sister and meet my mom there since she would be there on the few days early flight because she has something to do with her office.

I'm so excited to go to Kota Kinabalu. It would be my second time travelling to East Malaysia and my first time to Sabah. I went to Sarawak in 2003. We're going to stay there for five days. I checked MAS' website and I'm going there on Boeing 737-400 :( I don't like 737, I like 747 and 777. I've been on 747 and it wa great. At least I'm going there, better than not going anywhere.

Boring Day at School

I went to school today, like usual and IT WAS BORING! We did nothing beside playing cards, chatting, mobile phones etc. I brought along my camera with me and took some photos, since I've knew the right way to take photos. So here they are:

My friend made Blackjack deck tower/pyramid/whatever.

Some tree I took next to my class.

Fresh from Me!

I'm sure you're already notive the new look for my blog, again. I think this is going to be very long before I change it again. I dropped the "by yit4s" phrase because I think no one owns another TIAB, right?

So, I just discovered an amazing function on my camera. Well, not discovered, but told by a blogmate. He said that I should use the Macro function and I used it to experiment. Experiment was a success. Too bad, the macro function takes like half of my camera's battery life. It's Fujifilm Finepix F420 by the way. Here are some samples:

Comments would be very appreciate.
