The Journey continues......


Apologies for not updating this blog for a longgggggggg time. My hubby was here since August and since then we have been sooooo busy (mind you!). We have moved into our new (rented, of course) house, not far away from my uni but close enough to Alia's school. Closer to Malay community here, so there have been plentiful of activities for mums, dads and kids alike!

Let's start with raya. We celebrated Eid with the many Malays here, and also with the mak2 and pak2 Arabs. Sembahyang raya and then having a small feast. There was lots of sweet desserts-variety of cakes and biscuits, chocolates and the savoury ones - turkey ham croissants, sandwiches (oh, so English!) and many more. Then we headed to Maswa's house for nasi himpit, lontong, rendang, and a special dish from Sue (lupa apa nama masakannya).

Lepas isi perut, off we went to Royal Holloway University of London (RHUL) for photo sessions. Kids were the happiest as they run and jump in the lush green field. After a handful of 'sengih sana sengih sini', we decided that it was time to leave for Malaysia High Commision's open house in London.

This year, we have decided that all open houses will be held at only one venue. Tak macam last year, door-to-door open houses, sampai penat badan. So semua orang kena bawak makanan yang telah ditetapkan. Mine was bihun sup. It was very merry (not my bihun...the celebration, hehehe). For K Izan's open house, the main menu was nasi dagang ikan tongkol. I bough a very humble apple pie for her.

Oh, I almost forgotten of the invitation for iftar from frens. First was from Sue, at Huntersdale. And then me and Maswa c0-organised the 2nd one at Larksfield. Later was at Asad's in Sunninghill and the last one was by Sofia at Silwood Park.
