Hati berbunga2 hari ni when the electrician and the gas fitter muncul di depan pintu tengah hari tadi, hehehe…
They came to install the oven and the stove top.
Before they came, I made sure I emptied out the cabinets next to the oven and the stove top so they can reach into the gas head and the power point for the stove top.
I put all the stuff in the cabinets on the dining table thinking that I can put them all back in after they’ve done installing.
The gas fitter did an excellent job installing the stove top even though it took him about an hour plus to install the stove top.
And this is my new stove top .
Sangat lah riang gembira ada taman penuh bunga in my heart when I used it to cook dinner tadi.
I love the fact that the trivets are made out of cast iron so less tendency for them to warp on high heat.
I can put my pots and pans anywhere on the trivet and they dont slip off because they are very stable.
Masa tengah masak tadi, I kept on going ooh and aah macam orang jakun habis, hahahaha.
And the electrician came and took the old oven out and tried to put the new oven in….
That’s when ‘tragedy’ struck…
Can you see from the photo that the underbench cavity is slightly too small for the new oven to slip into by about 1cm so the oven is jutting out.
The electrician didn’t have the tools to saw off a bit of the wood so he couldn’t do anything.
We had to call the carpenter (which we sort of hoping not to have to do) to come and saw off 1cm of the cabinet so the oven can be fitted into the cavity.
But he could only come tomorrow morning so for the time being, the oven is just for display only lah…
And my dining table still penuh dengan barang2 from inside the cabinets. Terpaksalah we all makan dinner at the coffee table tadi, hehehe.
Our new babies, the Westinghouse oven and stove top.
I am in love with the oven already, hehehe.
Do you want to know why?
because of the things below, heeeeeee….
Our old mengong oven cuma ada 2 functions aje you, fan bake and fan grill.
The new oven has 10 functions!
Maunya I tak jatuh cinta lap lap dag dig dug kat dia!
My bedtime read tonite will be the oven manual.
And what did I cook to rasmikan my new stove top?
Nasi goreng corned silverside aje. I makan dengan sambal belacan and The Other Half makan dengan sambal nasi lemak from a jar, hehehe.
I ada meeting at school tadi tu yang balik from school pun dah lambat so tu yang masak nasi goreng aje.
Takpe, once (when) the oven is functioning, I can cook up a storm!
The Other Half and The Little Misses dah siap a list of things that they want me to bake in the new oven, hehehehehe…
The Other Half wants me to make belgian biscuit, Miss 8 wants me to make macarons and Miss 12 wants me to make pavlova.
I just want to kiss and hug the oven, cukuplah……
