Miss 5’s cold is getting worse especially her cough. Poor her sebab hari ni aje dah 3 kali dia threw up after a coughing bout. Tak sempat her meals nak hadam, dah keluar balik, tu yang asik kelaparan aje dia hari ni, hehehehe…. At least she’s a good patient who’s happy to lie on the couch watching tv the whole day and would go to the toilet herself bila terasa nak muntah :-). Probably sebab dia dah biasa sangat muntah, she knows already all the symptoms nak muntah tu, tu yang terus aje pergi ke toilet. Which makes life so easy for her parents sebab tak susah2 nak clean up after that :-).
Speaking of Miss 5, she asked me just now, “ Mummy, I don’t like being sick. How come Allah makes me sick?” . She’s been learning about Our Creator quite intensively at school the past few weeks so she knows that Allah makes all things happen. I guess she’s just at that stage of understanding things that she can’t see and trying to make sense of the things she learns at school. She asked me the other day whether Allah is a boy or a girl :-). So in regards to her being sick question, I said to her, “ No one likes being sick but you can always ask Allah to make you better quicker.” Then I explained to her, “In a way, it’s good to be sick because your body is making all these good things called antibodies to fight the bad germs so next time when your body meets the same bad germ, you won’t get sick because your body will know how to fight it. And when you are sick, it shows that your body is fighting the bad germs which is good.” I think she understands the concept of good germs and bad germs and fighting, hehehehe….. The Little Misses love it when we explained to them about our bodies and its functions and how all the bits work :-). Much better to tell them the truth than tell them white lies kan :-).
And since I hari ni jadi Mummy mithali again, I made chicken briyani for dinner. But I think memang jauh beza betul my briyani dengan the real pakistani briyanis tu sebab I pakai taram aje masak guna remaph ratus yang ada in my kitchen aje. The Other Half said there’s something missing in it, probably chilli and a few other vital ingredients in a briyani kot :-), sebab I buat tak pedas langsung so tak kick lah rasanya. Oh well, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose in the kitchen :-). For Miss 5, I made chicken soup sebab orang sakit kan, hehehe……
I takde saffron tu yg kaler dia semua putih aje, takde warna warni :-).
Tinggal banyak ni after dinner tadi…. Enough for The Other Half’s and my lunches esok, hehehe
