Salam to everyone.. i bet everybody is busy baking for Eid right now.. not long to go ey.. tick tock tick tock hehhe.. so how was the weekend?? we did lots and managed to get what we wanted.. mom shopped for curtains and since hb "prohibited" me fm using any sort of curtains in my kitchen fm the day we moved into this house... i decided to use blinds.. got home.. drilled em and voila.. i hv blinds in my kitchen! so why the need to use blinds in my kitchen? well i need some kinda of blockage.. my neighbours' maid loves to look down into my kitchen whenever she does her housework.. i, as u guys already know.. "sleep" in my kitchen so to hv someone looking down day in and day out can be pretty annoying!
Anyway for the past 2 days.. i hv baked 4 types of cookies for mom.. two of which were semprit cookies.. Sonia has been helping me with the "sprinkles" (as what she calls it) and looking at these pics makes me feel oh so blessed.. i hv always wanted a daughter after i got Hairi and now i hv Sonia.. :o)
