The Last Day of Puasa..


Tomorrow is already the raya day...

and I'm still in KL, lepak2..

and planning to go back by evening..

I'm now about to get out of the house to go back to my kampung..

to all.. drive carefully.. god bless..

The Crazy Raya Bazaar @ Jalan TAR

A day before raya.. and this is the only nite that I can visit the Raya Nite Bazaar for the last time before raya.. I'm not gonna say much about it.. just sharing a few photos of the craziness of the bazaar..Varieties of Baju Melayu and Baju Kurung to choose from.. and very2 cheap as they need to finish up their stocks before raya.. and artificial flowers for decoration purposes as well as the songkok to wear with Baju Melayu.. It was such a crazy Raya Bazaar with zillions of people crowding at one place.. and I can't stand it anymorw.. and quietly made an exit as fast as possible.. without getting anything from the bazaar.. heheheh! Raya can turn shopping habits for some people crazily upside down.. and a goldmine for the sellers at the stalls.. Go back laaa for raya..

Monday @ IKEA

Monday.. and got nothing to do.. so I decided to go to Ikea with the intention of not buying anything.. heheh! Just a slow walk while checking out the Ikea stuff stacks by stacks.. Found a friend with her daughter there.. and took a walk together.. later ended up buying the stand lights for my house.. such a nice one.. the installation isn't that difficult.. and it took only minutes away to get it done..Nice one for my raya.. hehehe!

The Baju Melayu for Raya

I decided not to buy a new set of Baju Melayu this year.. instead just wear the one from last year.. what should I wear?
The blue one with matching black songket?or the maroon one with the matching maroon songket as well?I think I will wear the blue one, as I don't wear it for any occasions yet.. so the blue one it is..

Blackie's Service Before Raya

I'm suppose to service Blackie before raya.. as it is due for service already.. plus the long way drive back home needs a good serviced car.. and me, being a procrastinator, couldn't help until the last minutes to do it.. my bad! I know! Tried to do bookings online, but unfortunately, the service bookings are already full.. so I decided to go straight away to the service Centre in Cheras, only to be informed that the service bookings were all fully booked, and I hafta wait until tomorrow for walk-in..
Again.. my bad! I know.. just hope that I can service my car before I go back for raya.. which I don't think I managed to do before raya.. heheheh!

Home Made Cooking

I was asked by my friends to cook Nasi Lemak for them for the last time before I go back for raya.. They've already asked me about this since the early days of puasa, but since my days were busy back then, I postponed it to the last week of puasa.. and as promised, I cooked Nasi Lemak with Sambal Sotong and Fried Chicken.. the simple one indeed.. added with Laksa Sarawak, from the ready made gravy that I brought from Kuching.. Started cooking at 6pm.. and I figure I only need about 1 hours to finish both dishes, right on time for berbukas.. heheheh! and I delivered.. Those were the dishes just now.. which finished in a split second.. heheheeh! They all keep eating one plate by another.. and I'm so happy to see that.. And the Laksa Sarawak that I tried, also successfully done.. wonderful.. They are satisfied with my cooking.. and although my cooking skills are somehow rotten already, I believe that I still have it.. hahahahah! So happy and relieved to see all the food are completely finished at last..

New Finding: Open The Windows After You Enter Your Car To Emit Toxin

I got an email from a friend with this message.. So I think it's good to share with the rest on the important info..

According to research done by a University of California, the car dashboard, seats, air freshener will emit Benzene, a cancer-causing toxin (carcinogen) . In addition to causing cancer, it poisons your bones, causes, anemia, and reduces white blood cells.
Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer. It may also cause miscarriage. Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft. A car parked indoors with the windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene. If parked outdoors under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2,000-4,000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level. The people inside the car will inevitably inhale an excessive amount of toxins.

It is recommended that you open the windows and doors to give time for the interior to air out before you enter. Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver, and is difficult for your body to expel.

Jammed Up Roads in Bukit Jalil

The Traffic Jam Havoc has officially started.. and Bukit Jalil being the Bus Hub for the Southbound area is not a good choice at all.. imagine the already narrow 2 lanes road added with the stupid people who parked by the roadside.. added with endless counts of buses entering the small parking lot in front of the hockey stadium, and the very slow traffic light in front of Carrefour intersection.. it all adds to the the stupid jam.. Haven't they think and planned before they started putting the bus hub here? I'm stuck in the haywire jam for almost 30 minutes.. just to pass by the place to get into Kesas Highway.. and cursed non-stop throughout the way.. Idiot!

The Raya Cookies

By now, I guess everybody must have their own raya cookies to bring back home for their parents.. I still don't have a chance to buy any.. but thank god I got myself a few types of free cookies from friends.. I don't know what the cookies are called.. but it looks nice and tastes delicious.. hehe!
1 from friends..2 from the neighbour next door, Kak Zura..2 that I bought myself..Thanks so much for the courtesy and rememberance.. Tak payah dah nak beli banyak kuih raya.. heheheh!
Meanwhile, my visit to check out the kuih raya that I wanna buy turned out to be a pretty interesting one.. lots of cookies to choose from.. nice colorful and delicious looking combination of the cookies really interests me.. Check it out!Nice one eh?
