Sneeze, Anybody?

What's your favourite food?

Mine's definitely 'sambal tumis'.

I remember when I was about 9 years old, I had nine (9) rounds of rice with sambal tumis ikan bilis. I just loved it!

Now, if I'm out of ideas on what to cook, sambal tumis is the first dish that would come to mind. My recipe for sambal tumis is very easy, it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and cook.

Blended dried chillies, sliced red onions, tamarind juice, anchovies, salt and sugar to taste.

Heat up some cooking oil, fry the anchovies till golden and crispy, put aside.
Using the same oil, fry the blended dried chillies till someone in the house sneezes. It shows that the chillies are well-cooked.
Put in salt and sugar.
Throw in sliced red onions.
Pour some tamarind juice.
Let it simmer.
Mix in the fried anchovies.
Stir them together and voila! Ready to be eaten with hot plain rice.

Burrppp........It's really worth the sneezing!!!

We Are Together Always

Alright, so far, I've posted two entries for 2011, not bad for a start after taking an extremely long break....

Today, I decided to go to work earlier than usual. From Monday to Thursday, 9am until 1pm, I have lecture gigs to fulfill at one of our local universities. After which, I would rush to my office and would only go back home at night.

Some have asked me when is the time that I get to spend with my husband and children?
Well, the answer is all the time....
Yes, I meet my husband every day at the office because we run the business together.
Yes, I spend time with my children all the time too because I take them with me to the office.
If I have meetings, I would ask my clients to come to my office instead of having meetings outside. I always have my appointments at my office too, and so far so good, nobody has complained about such arrangements and they themselves think it is better and more comfortable conducting meetings at my office.

My children have been behaving well at the off…

I'm Back!!!

Yes, yes, I know I've been missing from the blogging world for such a looooonnnggg time.....well, it was due to the usual typical reason - busy as a bee....

What makes me get back my blogging mojo?
Answer: people!!!!!

I have been running an academy and a management office for eight months now. I can proudly say that they are exclusively mine and I have my every blood, heart and soul in them. And not to forget, my money too!!!!! Whatever I have saved up, whatever I have in-hand and whatever I have in trusts have been invested in the business.

You are not wrong if you say I have become poor now because of the business. BUT, do you realise that because of the business too I will become one of the richest ladies in not-so-many years to come? (Aminn.....InsyaAllah) AND when that happens, don't tell me that you wouldn't be one of the many people who would come running for my help? (ok, obviously this is a personal luahan hati ku to particular individuals).

Well, it frustrates me a lo…
