The last post for a while…..

As the title explains….

This will be my last post for a while.

I need to find my blogging mojo back.

I’ve been blogging since January 2008 so that’s nearly 6 years of posts which is a lot!

And I used to put up a new entry every night and so far that’s nearly 1800 posts already…

From when the girls were ‘little’ to one already a teenager and another one on the way there.

From them not being famous to now where a lot of people know who they are!

Hahahahahaha…..Smile with tongue out

From when I was in my 30s to 40s…

From when The Other Half was kurus to gemuk to kurus balik to gemuk balik and now on the way to kurus balik Open-mouthed smile

So, that’s a pretty long time I think.

A lot of bloggers that I got to know masa I mula2 berblogging pun dah ‘tutup kedai’ or dah biarkan rumah diaorang bersawang bertahun2.

I dont think I’ll stop completely…

Hopefully I’ll be back sometime early next year with new zest for blogging.

In the meantime, you can still access my blog kalau rindu kat I or the girls or The Other Half Winking smile. I won’t close it.

Or if you are a female over 19 and have an active IG account, you can always find me on IG.

So far I’m still not accepting any male followers on IG and I dont really want to accept girls under 19 (especially yang masih kat sekolah menengah tu) cos I rasa macam too young pulaknya untuk follow Mak Mak mcm I ni, hehehe….

I’ll give you half of my IG user and pandai2lah y you pilih mana satu Winking smile. My IG user is mynnm

I leave you with loads of photos in this last post.

After 2+ years, Miss 14 had a haircut.

She wanted a really short haircut, getting ready for a hot Summer.

IMG_7263

So, the hairstylist washed it, treated it, cut it, blowdried it, straightened it…

And it ended up like this.

IMG_7278

She looks so much like an amoi with this new hairdo and straight hair!

 

IMG_7279

Dah takde rupa pan-asian dah, hanya pure chinese semata2!

hahahahaha…..

Lagi lah orang akan toleh 3-4 kali kalau dia jalan dengan I or The Other Half sebab mesti orang ingat anak angkat, hikhikhikhik…

While Miss 10 pulak still looks the same.

IMG_7338

IMG_7300

And I pulak, masih tak dapat turun kan 2kg exces weight yang I hari2 dok cakap nak cuba turunkan itu, hehehe…

IMG_7043

IMG_7235

And our garden is still doing great

IMG_7709

The loganberries have ripened and we’ve had some.

As usual Miss 10 loves to pick them.

IMG_7711

They taste a bit tart like raspberry but sweeter than raspberry.

My favourite part of the garden, bunches of grapes and loads of purple berries.

IMG_7713

The snakebeans/ kacang panjang are taking off, reaching the moon soon!

IMG_7714

IMG_7716

The Other Half has transformed this small area on the side into a prettier place by putting pea gravels on the ground.

IMG_7718

The tomatoes are growing nicely as well.

IMG_7333

And the foods I cooked…

Seafood laksa/ mee kari/ kari laksa

IMG_7671

IMG_7676

Fettucine bolognese

IMG_7683

IMG_7691

Nasi goreng with ayam actifry and nut sauce

IMG_7698

IMG_7706

Crusted lamb rack with bread rolls and salad.

IMG_7734

IMG_7735

Char kuey teow.

IMG_7740

I finally managed to make CKT yang rasa sedap macam ori! hehehehe….

IMG_7742

I hope you guys are happy with all the photos I have put up in the blog so far and have tried some of the recipes I put up.

I know I still owe some people a few recipes. InsyaAllah I’ll put them up when I come back.

Kalau ada salah silap terkasar bahasa menyinggung perasaan in any of my posts, saya mohon berbanyak2 maaf.

Till we meet again next time…

               Hilang di mata tapi di hati tidak lupa
              Berdoalah kita agar aman dan sentosa
              Semoga kita berjumpa lagi lain masa NoteNote

Macam sedih pulak I baca. Huhu. Nasib baik kita keep in touch kat iG. You look fabulous Mynn. Yup ramai bloggers zaman 2007 2008 pun dah mcm tutup kedai. My blog masih afloat tapi tak sehebat you punya yang sangat konsisten. Have a good rest :)

BeLLa said...

Salam. I post this on behalf of my grandma :

" Saya Makcik Pati dari Muar. Saya ni silent reader je. Saya nak komen sendiri tak pandai. Ni suruh cucu tuliskan. Rutin setiap malam, baca blog Salam Dua Benua sebelum tidur. Terasa kehilangan dalam rutin harian. Jangan berehat lama-lama. Sampaikan salam to your family especially the kids. May God bless you.."

Btw, my grandma nak jadi follower kat insta. Insta dia @fatimahibrahim. She loves you so much! Asyik cakap "Jom pergi Australia, kite pergi rumah Salam Dua Benua nak?".. Lepas tu, bila terbaca post kata balik Malaysia.. Dah sudah dia ajak pulak pergi kampung. Nak jumpa katanya.. hehe

=)

aku memang suka masuk blog ni sebab makanan dia nampak macam best - dan dia punya finishing b4 amik gambor buat tertelan air liur.

biasanya memang scroll tgk gambar dulu baru baca..hahaha.

blog ini bagi aku macam citer Julie and Julia lakonan amy adam dan meryl streep. "365 hari 524 resepi"...

bila puasa datang - aku terpaksa skip blog ni. hahahaha

selamat berehat kak atau bukak kedai makan je kat sana...

Along Najwa said...

Ehm...mixed feeling. I'll miss you definitely, after almost 3 years following your blog. From that swedish meatball recipe to your pizza and bread.

But i also know that everyone need a break after all those years . You deserve a rest for sure. Do come back when you are totally ready and rejuvenate.

Missing you already ! 😢

MamaFaMi said...

Hik hik hik...

Welcome to the suam-suam kuku club! Mama ni tak de ler nak cakap babai bagai sebab mama ni ikut angin je. Kalau angin tiup kencang, adalah update, kalau angin tiup sepoi sepoi bahasa, sawang menimbunlah dalam blog.

Well lady, take all the rest you need then make a malatops comeback ye.... take care!
