Quick & Easy

How often do you dine out?

We usually eat out once a week, usually on the weekends. But during the week, I take turn with hubby to do the cooking.

I like cooking. It gives me satisfaction watching my family enjoy the food I prepare. But since I normally get home quite late from work on weekdays, I only cook what’s quick and easy. Leisure cooking is reserved for weekends and special occasions only.

These are favorites in my house,

quick & easy…

But definitely enough to fill a hungry stomach

Happy Friday everyone, enjoy your weekend.

Que Sera Sera

A few months ago, a friend invited me to join facebook. Though a bit ignorant, I signed up. That was the only thing I did … the account was idle for so long, I didn’t take the initiative to explore further.

Last week, while I was on my annual leave, I received few messages from old friends who are also on facebook.. Internet connection at home was down for a few days thanks to streamyx. ..and since I don’t fancy reading long messages and browsing thru my blackberry I decided to wait until today.

This morning, when I finally logged on to facebook, I saw this…

This photo was taken way back in 1977, when I was in Primary One.

I showed it to a friend in the office and she can hardly recognize me.
.. when I reached home, I logged on to face book and ask my girls to identify me… but they did not recognize me either. They pick another girl.

When I told them that I am the little girl in the Kadazan costume, they looked at me puzzled.. and said: mum, you look …so … different.

I decided to show them another one …

six from left - blue skirt

They were confused…. Mum, you look … so … black…

We laughed …
...well my girls, that was many, many years ago …...when I was just a little girl.

...and .. yea
When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty, will I be rich
Here's what she said to me.

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.
