Salam to all ;)
Yesterday morning, I had an early phone call from Aunty Eton. She said she wanted to drop by my place on her way home from Tauranga to Hamilton. Since it was raining crazily for summer this year, she decided to chill out at my crib....cheh cheh hehehez chill out....crib......siakss :ppp Yup yup chill out while waiting for the rain to subside before continuing her journey home with her hb, uncle David.
She told me not to go through any trouble preparing lunch and will arrive here at abt 11am. While waiting for her, I did a little clean up and forced Jannah to eat her breakfast which she took almost an hour to finish bcos she was so engrossed watching her kid's programme on tv. I turned the tv off and in my mind thinking, what should I whip up for my guest. Although Aunty Eton, said not to prepare anything for them, I just can't welcome my guest with plain water.
So, I made this wonderfully soft bread. True to its name, just like what Yat said....it is wonderfully soft alright. Jannah had her lunch which consist of rice, fried fish & cabbage and still managed to eat 2 pieces before aunty and uncle came over and had another 1 when they arrived. She wanted more when she saw I packed 3 pieces of the leftover bread for aunty. She even asked me to make them again today....yikkesss next time ok my baby ~~ she doesn't like me calling her baby now. She's a girl she said ;)
Well, I had lots of time to make the bread, proof it, baked it and even eat it while waiting for them to arrive. Guess what time did they arrive....???? Jeng jeng jeng.......after 2.30pm!!! Janji melayu betol!!! What can I say abt the Malays when they make promises aye?? They are either 5 minutes early or 1 day late ;pppp Ooopppssiiiee, that includes me bcos I fall under the Malay category.....la la la la la la la *whistle* *whistle* *whistle*
