The Beach Holiday

On Friday, me, B, and my fam will be going for a short 3 nights trip to the land of the white elephants; Thailand.
Phuket to be exact. Having been to Bangkok for 3 times, i'm pretty much excited to experience again the great Thai cuisine, and the Siamese culture. This is B's first out of country trip with my dad. Our 1st trip with mom was last years December holidays.

As a couple, we've never really favored beach holidays. We've always been the Bangkok type of people rather than the Phuket. But since brother no 2 is back for his summer hols, we thought we'd go somewhere together like they did (without me n b, b lah kecoh tanak ikut) last year, where they went to Bali. Just somewhere close to make it a short trip.
But soo sad that bro no 1 has been working in Jakarta on a work assignment since July and has yet to finish work there. So he's out of the fam troup to Phuket.

Phi Phi island

Patong Beach

Pictures above are all from Goole.

We've booked a travel package which includes 3 nights accomodation, 3 halal meals a day, 2 days island tour, snorkeling, airport transfers n all. 
After doing some research on Phi Phi island  and James Bond island, i can admit that i am soooo excited to go swimming n snorkeling.

And of courseee makannn thaii food! B n i loved the thai food we had in Bangkok. Being the big eater that we are, we surely have planned  to go and look for a good halal thai restaurant even though we will be provided with breakfast, lunch, n a dinner meal while we're there.

Baked with love

Before Ramadan started, mom and i agreed that this year, we'd try and bake choc chip cookies.
Finally, we gathered the effort to start on it yesterday . Started at around 5 pm, to about 1/4 to 7 , 2 batches of choc chips were produced. The smell of baked cookies  lingered around the whole night.

Even though it's not as good as Famous Amos (not even close) . But i still thought i got an A+ for the effort and love poured into baking those cookies. My sweet and thoughtful brothers even suggested i sell my cookies because it was good to them. Too bad B had to go back to Melaka yesterday (after coming back to subang for the weekend + mil went to Mekah, so he'll prob be staying more in subang until raya), so he didnt get to try it , but he'll prob be back this evening, so i'll let him try it for berbuka. Good verdicts hopefully. Fingers crossed!

We still have left over choc chip dough from yesterday( had to stop baking coz needed to prepare for iftar) So this evening, my mission continues. I'm very domestic and hubby's proud of it.

Happy preparing for Aidilfitri everyone!
