Malam ni ada kenduri baca tahlil kat kampung I untuk arwah Abah.
And at the same time, my adik and adik ipar buat aqiqah untuk anak diaorang yang baru lahir a few weeks ago.
It’s the second grandson in my family.
Masa adik ipar I mengandung, my Abah was still around and he knew that he was going to get a second grandson. He was so excited. Ye lah kan, cucu dah ada 9 and baru sorang aje boy so bila he knew another grandson was on the way, suka lah dia .
And we were joking around kata maybe she would be admitted to deliver at the same time as Abah I admitted for his heart op.
But hanya Allah yang maha mengetahui apa yang akan terjadi kan.
He didn’t get to see his grandson who was born 3 weeks after he passed away .
So, I thought I nak join sama baca Yassin and tahlil untuk arwah Abah tu.
I am so thankful for modern technologies which allow me to join the Yassin reading and doa without me having to be there in person.
I have told my family yang I will facetime them sepanjang tahlil tu so I dapat ikut sama Tok Imam baca Yassin.
The Other Half kata why not Skype aje, lagi senang and lagi besar boleh nampak.
I told him yang I just want to be discreet aje, nanti orang kata berlagak pulak kan, mentang2 ada komputer, hehehehe…
So, I better get ready soon.
(I feel much happier now knowing that everytime they do a tahlil for arwah Abah, I can join it too.)
Layan gambar our dinner tonite ye!
Dinner malam ni was requested by Miss 12 sebab very soon, she won’t be able to eat a lot of her favourite food such as nougat, fudge, chewy gooeey brownies, hehehehe….
I made oven baked crumbed chickens with coleslaw and fries.
All my oven baked chickens, I will put them on a raised silicone mesh so all the fat will drip down and not pool around the chicken pieces.
I used cornflakes crumbs mixed with powdered chicken stock, powdered coriander, a dash of paprika, a dash of ground white pepper and a dash of five-spice powder.
Then, spray the chicken pieces with olive oil, dip them into the cornflakes crumb mixture and coat them well.
Bake them in the oven at 175°C (fan-forced) around 40-50 minutes or until cooked.
Makan dengan coleslaw and fries, waduh waduh….sungguh enak sekali!
Terus tak kempunan nak makan KFC dah, hikhikhikhik….
