A lot of things happened the past few days, some hilarious, some fun and one major catastrophe.
The hilarious bit first, Miss 8’s assembly performance went well.
She was a good emcee, spoke clearly without forgetting her lines.
People thought she was a rat, a mouse, a cat, a seal….hehehehehe…..
But in my eyes, she was always the cute otter (sape lagi yang nak puji kalau tak sipembuat costume kan, hahahaha ).
I altered the ears and the hoodie a bit to make it look more otter-like but still tak rupa otter jugak.
The fun bit, went shoes and clothes shopping with The Other Half.
Not for me but for him.
Fun(ny) sebab he knew what he wanted to get and all done and bought in less than an hour, hahahaha…
Tak pernah I shopping kasut and baju for me that was completed in an hour.
He basically got 2 pairs of black shoes (which luckily are not the same design and make which he tends to do sometimes). And then he bought a couple of shirts, same design and brand but different colours. Got some long-sleeved shirts (sama design but different colours) and short-sleeved tshirts (all same design and all whites).
Patut lah dia tak gemar betul pergi bershopping dengan I sebab I suka membelek lama, pastu fikir banyak kali, pastu cuba macam2 and then end up tak beli anything unlike him, hehehe.
And then when we got home, disaster struck which made me so so sad macam nak nangis dah .
We wanted to have grilled cheese open sandwich for lunch.
Switched on the grill function in the new oven….
Then it started to smell quite bad, and then we saw smoke coming out of the oven and then we saw a small fire on the grill element!!!!!!
When I used the oven a few time last week, I didn’t use the grilling heating element so everything was fine.
We were so shocked to see the smoke and the fire. Luckily we could extinguish it but the roof of the oven is a bit scorched.
Pastu nak jadi cerita, it happened on a Saturday so the service centre only opens half day (Eastern Standard time) so when we called them at 1 o’clock our time, obviously lah dah tutup.
Yang we all hairan sangat2, we didn’t buy oven cap ayam, we bought a good brand and highly recommended so we don’t know what happened to make it catch fire.
We’ve followed all the instructions in the manuals…..
And another thing yang buat sangat2 sedih nya, we just bought a leg of lamb that afternoon to cook for dinner that night.
Dah terbayang2 and terliur2 memikirkan kesedapan roast lamb, muahahahaha….
I think we can still use the bake function but tak berani lah weh, mana tau tiba2 dia goes ‘BOOM’, takke cari nahas namanya tu.
So, we ended up having spaghetti marinara instead (which was still very very nice but tak sama lah rasa dengan roast lamb tu kan, heeee).
So, esok ni pagi2 morning I will have to call the service centre to chase them to replace our oven and pay for installation.
But in a way, Alhamdulillah it happened now when it is still under warranty then 5 years down the track when the warranty has run out.
I guess for the next few weeks, I won’t be able to use the oven lah eh (nasib baik I dah buatkan the biscuits and macarons for them, hehehe.)
But, Miss 12’s birthday is coming up soon and she really wants a pavlova as her birthday cake…..
Nasib baik we all ada a small portable electric oven so probably boleh kot nak buat pav in it .
