This morning, I got woken up by Jannah when she said. "Mama tak bangun sahur....tak puasa ke? Asal mama tak kejut Jannah arhh??" The fact is I overslept and when I looked at the time it was abt 7.30am. I wasnt feeling very well last night. Was coughing and sneezing with blocked nose and went to bed early at abt 10pm without even setting my cell phone alarm ZZZzzzz. Luckily before I went to bed last night I did recite the dua for keeping my fast otherwise I would have missed fasting today. Made me a Lemsip Cold & Flu Max drink with honey after iftaar and I am feeling 100% now. Alhamdullilah.
Even thou we didnt wake up for our morning meal, Jannah said that she wants to fast. For now, I only let Jannah fast until Dhuzur. I will let her have her meal with a glass of milk, she will fasts for another 4 hours and will break her fast with us AGAIN hehehez. So far, she looks more energetic the past 2 days compared to the first day of fasting. I can see that her appetite is way better too. I will keep on training her this way as she doesnt have any problem waking up for her morning meals at all. InsyaAllah.....Allah makes it easy for her.
I only managed to summon enough energy and enthusiasm at abt 3.30pm just to make these apam puteri ayu and our iftaar menu of bisteak with baguette. Lucky me that I managed to finish and clean up on time....pheeeww!! I thought I should give these apams a try when I saw them at Nieza's blog a few days back, really cant resist when I looked at them hehehez. I made half of the recipe and got 29 pieces of apams. Jannah really luvs them and had 6 pieces during iftar. Hb asked me what were they and I told him its steamed coconut cake. Surprisingly he tried a piece.....no comment??!!! That means he doesnt like them lah :pppppp
