Salam, Kia Ora..........

Greetings from the land of long white cloud, Aotearoa, New Zealand.  Welcome to my blog ;)  Yes, I've been contemplating for the past 2 yrs.  Don't know if I will be able to maintain my blog if I were to start one. Furthermore, there are millions other bloggers out there, sharing their life experiences, recipes and etc, etc.  With my conservative kinda thinking.....hmmmz, I always have this thinking that I won't be able to make it blogging as I do not have good photography skills nor cooking or baking skills.  I am actually a very lazy person....hehehez.  It's true, those who have lived with me will vouch for that.  But.....I'm learning and really trying my best now.  Some days it's successful cooking or baking for me.  Some days....haizzz not worth mentioning hehehehz >.<

Cooking or baking is not my forte, I actually do not like doing them but I have to, since living in NZ makes it impossible for me and my family to have take outs every night.  My hb always said that I'm a different person in the kitchen....I turned evil, the kitchen is an evil place whenever I'm in there....hehehehz :D.  Anyway, over the years, (almost 6 yrs here now) I've developed a 'what can I do / I've no choice' attitude and just cook and bake cos when I want to eat certain asian delicacies, I've to drag my lazy bum into the kitchen and cook.

The 1st 2 to 3 years was very hard for me.  Some nights I just couldnt be bothered to cook.  We have to resort to eating junks or instant noodle or toast...hehehehez.  Since my daughter, Jannah, has started eating solid food abt a year ago, I'm trying my best now to cook every night for my family.  Yeap, I only cook once a day, dinner only.  It's always left over for hubby's packed lunch and our lunch at home.  Or if there is none, it will be toasties for lunch....hehehehez.   

To my cuzzie, my bff and family in SG who have been here before on a long stay, I would like to say sorry if I haven't been a good host or cook when u guys were here.  InsyaAllah, the next time u are here.....I will cook some scrumptious, delicious, yummylicous, meals...hehehez

Ok that's my ramblings for now.....I will try to figure out what blogging is all abt and then post some of my successful and unsuccesful dishes and bakes that I've tried.  Take care kaha.

PS.  To the season bloggers out there, I appreciate any tips on blogging.  Thank u ;)

Me Te Aroha....With Love,
Anie ;)

Hi Si Jie,

Tks for visiting my blog :) I've just finished watching the vampire diaries season 2 ep 8. Awww that look on Damon's face when he told Elena that he luvs her...indescribable. I'm luving that series more and more now. Lots of unexpectness, new characters, twist, actions & blood sucking scene....hehehez ;)

Do wait patiently for my 1st recipe to be published. I am still figuring out the layout of my blog....
