My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold..

..2 slices of the best chocolate cheese cake ever! Goodness, this is orgasmic ecstacy! Well, almost. Actually, at this moment, I have lots of things to do. But I just need a break.

They are all sleeping peacefully, and I'm still here..trying to figure out how to start dozing off. sigh. Here I go again..'One sheep, two sheep, three sheep...".

So, I went to YM to check out if my girlfriend, Lyana was online. I forgot to make myself invisible, and..oui la...half a dozen friends said 'hi'..hmmmm. Decided to be generous and responded. Glad I did so as tonight, I've learnt some new things. Firstly, I managed to patch things up with an old friend I used to hurt. Secondly, found a person who is willing to fix my wet kitchen at a very reasonable price. Sometimes it is rewarding to just say 'hi' to people you have been trying to keep a distance from. Anyway, why shut yourself up from others? I have no problem appreciating other people's kind gestures.

Well, I want to reflect on the interesting conversations I had just now..but I am just too sleepy..Perhaps I'll write something here tomorrow. I doubt it, though. Lately I've been kinda busy with the new place that my hubby and I, have been trying painstakingly to make a home. Well, now that I've been liberated from being religiously available online since less than a month ago, (hahahahah very funny), my conscience is crystal clear.

Ok..better sleep now..tomorrow will be a big day, I just hope the Ikea guys would deliver my kitchen on time, for what is a woman without her kitchen! Muah..muah to all. Au Revoir..

IDa,
First, Secret recepi cheese cake is to me beat none to other cheese cakes.It still maintains its creamy haven, but i missed their carrot cake which has been discontinued. Home made layer cheese with sponge cake anyone? My sis has mastered the baking of the best layered cheese cake to date looking at the order every hari raya.

Second,My hubby and I believe we have all the time to decorate home.One should not settle to one style.Its safe to settle for contemporary.But is there a woman out there who could hold IKEA home deco without sighing oohh i must have that hehe.

So Ida, i understand your anxiety, as the festive is just around the corner.Put on all the basic first, later think of minimal,English contemporary or IDa's home deco taste.

Enjoy the stress woman, oops positiviely.

Dear Lyana and Len,

Sigh..just finished painting the rooms. Well, at least I'm satisfied that I did it my own.

Hmm as for my new kitchen, it will be installed this Thursday. But before that there are lots of stuff to do; we need to hack the tiles off the walls ( and install the tiles of MY choice..heheh), relocate the power points and plumbling system and of course build my dream breakfast nook. So in a nutshell, my kitchen is still not a kitchen..heheh.

Len, you should have told me about your sister, as I would like to place some orders for her yummy cakes. I want to bake my own raya cookies this year but my mom thinks otherwise. That's kinda disappointing as it has been years since my parents and I celebrated the Eid together, for they have been abroad on a mission.

Sigh..tomorrow is back to work. How to work when I am in the Raya mood already?

Lyana Mauseth said...

OMG, im so excited la dgr cerita u deco the house...can't wait for my turn next year huhu...so u raya rumah baru ke?

btw,u dah try ke resepi i tu? bak kata u...sedap smp meletup2 haha

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Lyana Sayang,

U ni..I mana ada oven...I punya dah rosak la..Hang punya brownies kukuih bole ka..hahahha.

Lyana Mauseth said...

kukuih? tersembur ayaq aku minum ni ida haha...think ida..new kitchen, but no oven? no...no...not complete...u kena jugak beli oven baru...alah hadiah bday u next year, ckp dgn sinsei..:))..use your charm ida haha

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

la..kitchen baru memang complete semuanya, tapi tak siap pasang lagi. I meant the kitchen that I am currently using, oven nya dah kaput da..

Suzalie has warned me, if the new kitchen is ready, jgn asyik lepak kat situ je..heheheh. So far i figure we spent a lot on it, so dia suspects that I will have an 'affair' with the things there..heheh.

You know me, time tengah suka something, i'll be clingy to it, but bila dah bored..bau pun i tak hingin..hahahah.

Lyana Mauseth said...

u know, kitchen should be the heart of the house since we eat there, then it's time to catch up dgn family kan...i saw 1 kitchen set here..fell in love with it on the spot but the price cannot la..buleh mati wooo...around RM40k..gilo org norway ni..nak buat apa kitchen mahai2...u jgn jd mcm i dulu..in our old apartment, i had my laptop in the kitchen so sambil masak, smbil borak on YM haha...no time wasted k..mmg efficient lah...

x sbr i nak tgk ur kitchen ida..suspen ni haha..org punya kitchen i pulak yg over haha

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Lyana,

So far my new home the part yg dah siap is Sarah's room. But last nite the sensei has had such a hard time assembling her wardrobe..ni tak settle lagi ni. I wonder how are we gonna assemble our wardrobe pulak..kesian jugak.

We bought her the single day bed from IKEA with the mattress sekali. Aku pulak yang excited..hahha.

My kitchen lepas raya baru betul-betul settle as i had to reschedule the installation due to the incomplete tiling work. I have the patience, only that the colour of my worktop IKEA bagi yg lain pulak, but I think it will look better.

We are gonna mount a flat screen TV on the kitchen wall so no TV in the living room. You know la, I bukan suka sangat tengok TV, so penghuni umah tu nanati pun kena tak TV friendly jugak le..But WIFI connection memang penting. Senanag I YM u..boleh tgk demo you siang ikan and you watch me preparing pegedel..hahahha

lenzaidi said...

Ida ,
i can imagine you will be wiping your flat screen tv at every after one stir fry do.Phew and a wifi connection in the kitchen thats awesome.Wok with Ida heheh.

Im excited at the rate you are doing and putting up for your new apartment.But dahlin it can be very stressful too.But all,its nice to call it home after the efforts and fitfull nights oopss.

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Len dear,

The TV will be mounted high on the wall, beyond the reach of those little hands of my 4 kids..

I will do my cooking in the wet kitchen, the dry kitchen is for display only..hahahha.

Actually, I love cooking and baking, but lately keje penat macam nak giler ni nak experiment new recipes pun tak de mood. Apalah Kak Tipah u ni..dia tak nak Raya ke?

Lyana Mauseth said...

yes wifi is important, i agree..nnt kita buat life telecast, then buleh masak sama2..oh, i remember your pegedel ida...very delicious :D

TV in the kitchen? Ok if u want it that way haha..

I pun tgh angan2 mcmana nak decorate my boys punya rooms, and my room..asik pindah rumah dah 5 tahun idup mcm arab badwi...x sabar la nak duduk umah tetap ni...

u color pink ke her room? jgn lupa hntr gambar k...

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Lyana,

Initially sarah chose plum purple for her feature wall..macam colour funeral parlour, entah apa-apa. So I chose lavender. Good for her memory and mood.

Colours play a crucial role in our life. My room ingat nak ikut concept 'harem' hahahhahah...macam Otoman Turks era..amacam, ok ke?

Awat yang hang pindah-randah?

Hish rindunya i kat u..hang masak rendang tak? persoalannya..hang tau ke masak rendang? hehehhe..last year my rendang punya le pedas mcm makan racun..hehehehe..

Lyana Mauseth said...

lavender very nice ida.ingat tak bilik i kat uia dulu color lavender, but i don't know if it made any difference to my memories and mood haha..pasal ur room, i kena imagine dulu la mcmana concept harem tu...otoman turk..hmmm mcmana la tu?? haha

first i pindah norway, we lived in town, umah yusuf..but i ada rasa x bes skit la..u know la umah tu dia dok dgn ex madam dulu hehe..so lepas mak mentua i meninggal, we moved to her apartment and sold the other house...2 tahun kat apartment tu, i pindah balik msia, jual apartment tu beli umah kat msia..now sewa umah lain lak kat sini...fuhhh letih la ida haha

i reti la msk rendang, belajar since dtg sini haha but cannot lawan my mom punya la..ada ka rendang u pedas mcm racun haha...xpe this year improve k..gud luck wth the rendang :)

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

hahahhaha..tragedi rendang melampau pedas ni sebab I was not focusing on my cooking task as tgh sibuk dok tgk abang angkasawan yang-giler-terlampau-handsome-buat-aku-giler-bayang tu...hahahhah. Masa tu he was in space already..

Nasib baik ada lauk alternative to eat with the ketupat..hahahaha. Nasib baik juga my mom dah ready her rendang, so kami pulun dia punya le..but u know le my mom, rendangnya less lemak, garam pun kurang..mau jaga body..so last year serba kekurangan le kami..

Hopefully this year semuanya ok..i terer buat rendang sebenarnya, but don't distract me le..hehehhe.

p/s: Tadi I makan kuih semprit best giler, lyana...sarah makan dah nak abis, tak sempat raya..hahahaha

Lyana Mauseth said...

haha penangan dr-angkasawan rupanya...tragedi rendang ida haha..buleh buat drama la...ur mom patut la menten ja bdn..semua less...i xdenya less, plus lagi ada haha

i x sabar nak buat ketupat aluminium ni haha dgn rendang ayam...serai dgn lengkuas i bwk dr penang hari tu ada lagi..letak dlm freezer :)

Lyana Mauseth said...

kuih raya i somewhere on the way here haha..my mom kirim..tah bila nak smp..anak2 i pun suka semprit tu..sedapkan? my mom terrer la buat kuih tu..i malas nak amik atau mcmana buat haha...nnt ajar sarah buat la since dia suka kuih tu...orr u should buatkan for her :D

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Hey Lyan..hang jgn main-main..ai tengah menggoreng groundnuts ni nak buat Mazola cookies..since my oven dah rosak, ni nak p bakaq at my mom's place. Wah, bertambah le lelemak di badan ku ini..hahah. My favourite tu..

This year dah kautim ngan mama..I masak rendang daging, but jgn suruh i potong daging, nanti i sedey teringatkan lembu tuan punya daging tu..u tau lah how my imagination runs wild...heheheheh.

hang tak stock lemang segera ke Lyana? Kat sana tak de buluh ke? Pi suruh abg ucop hang carik kat hutan..heheheh.

Lyana Mauseth said...

alaa terrer la u..mazola mmg sedap...ni yusuf tgh buat brownies dgn cinnamon roles,,apple kek dia dah buat, now dlm freezer...i nak buat lemak je la haha...

ur imagination teruknya..sampai ke lembu tu u pikir :D..x mkn le jawapnya...i prefer rendang ayam dr daging..tah kenapa...

sedapnya lemang..sini xde buluh, kayu kayan byk le...xpe lah nnt tahun depan kalau i panjang umur, blh le mkn huhu...as for this year, cukuplah dgn ketupat aluminium i tu haha..enjoy makan ye ida..

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Babe, seriously u buat ketupat ngan aluminium foil ke? U tau i ni kekadang luruih bendul..org cakap merapu boleh percaya..betoi ke ni lyana..terer hang anyam ketupat ye..heheh

Lyana Mauseth said...

ida...ida..haha nak tergelak betoi i..betul la i buat ketupat dgn aluminium foil...tp x le i anyam..gilo terrer la i kalau mcm tu..i buat ketupat pulut tu..bila pulut tu dah masak..i letakkan atas foil instead of bungkus dgn daun palas..so i bungkus la pulut tu dgn foil...gulung ketat2, then kukus..tp i buat la lubang2 skit, tp tiny ones la...nak survive babe haha..kena la kreatif...mmg la buruk rupa ketupat i..tp yg penting isi di dalam tu..walaupun buruk tp sedap..haa tu yg penting..nasib baik la yusuf dgn bdk2 ni x reti benda, so xde la depa nak kutuk..buatnya kalau laki aku melayu ida, mampus masuk kubuq kena kutuk sbb ketupat buruk x pernah dibuat dek org haha

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Lyana,

I tak leh imagine u kahwin ngan mamat Melayu..u pernah ke berBF melayu ni? Hehehheheh...

Amacam ketupat hang? I dah tak larat makan anything berunsur pulut..lemah badan oo..

Lyana Mauseth said...

pernah..seorg half melayu, sorg lagi 1/5 melayu...nak buat mcmana ida, org melayu xnak kat i ni haa :(..depa nak wife putih2, i ni kelabu asap so x qualified haha...tp kan ida, i also x buleh bygkan kalau i kawin melayu, dgn mak mentuanya, dgn ipar duainya..ish x tau le blh handle ke tak...yusufkan ank tunggal, mak dia pun ank tunggal so i really x tau bab2 ipar duai ni..but God is fair..dia bagi i ank2 tiri..lucky they treat me good, alhamdulilah kan...

ketupat i ok..ank2 i pulun mkn, ni ada skit lagi..rendang i lepas sehari masin yg amat so i letak fresh milk, now rasa mcm kembang tekak nak mkn haha so i think nak cicah dgn condensed milk je ketupat tu:D...i lost 3kg bulan posa ni, ni nak gain balik le ni nmpk gayanya...

syok le u raya kampung...reno umah how?

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Lyana,

I balik Tapah, Perak to visit my maternal grandma..Gosh, she is already 94 but her memory, senses and skin still intact.

Anyway at the kampung, suzalie and the three of my kids slept in the tent. It was fun!

Well, now i'm back in KL the kota batu. Rather busy with the new place again. Esok the IKEA fellas are coming to install the cabinet, after twice rescheduling the project. So kinda excited and biasalah..susah nak tido...heheh

Lyana Mauseth said...

ida, i think both our husbands should be thrown out together so they can go tenting haha...yusuf loves outdoor activities...in fact, he goes tenting when it is minus 20 in the snow storm!!

wah, bagus la ur granma..kita ni lak yg selalu lupa mcm2...i know sorg ppuan ni umur dia 100 this year..masih ingat kat i walaupun jumpa dia sekali je tahun 2004 dulu...selalu suruh ank dia kim slm kat i haha...and she lives alone k...wonder how it would be for us nnt...ni memuda pun dah sakit sana sini...u know, i have pain in my shoulder blade for 2 months already...

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Lyana,

If u sakit shoulder blades ni maybe because of you are tired and maybe you've slouching (bongkok). I ni sebab dah lama tak gi gym, my posture dah tak betul..alignment pun nak lari dah..lowered lagi..hahhaha. tak caya hang p tanya Len..(rose)..hahhahah
