A day at the park.

After a long cold winter, the weather now is much better, hot and sunny almost like back in Malaysia. We've been planning to go to the park for a picnic since last week, and we finally did it today.

The happy faces

New in Our Humble Crib

My favourite room in a (any) house is definitely the kitchen. I really enjoy cooking (and eating..), and a clean and organised kitchen is important to me.

We rarely find a washing machine right under the kitchen top in Malaysia, but this is the standard arrangement for kitchens in the UK (unless if you have a laundry room).

New addition to the living room. We bought these for only £1! By the way, we went to Primark yesterday.

A dish from the heart..

My husband is not much of a cook, but he helps occasionally in the kitchen, mainly with the dishes and preparing hot coffee in the morning. He's been saying a lot about cooking for the past two weeks, and yesterday morning it finally happened..

A very delicious 'nasi goreng' for Wednesday's breakfast.

Thank you, abang..

New addition to the collection

Previously, I've wrote something about my 'so-called' reading habit. When it comes to academic or scholarly materials, I get easily bored and distracted, but a good fictional book implies otherwise. I started reading fictions in my early college years (UTM), and started with something easier to 'digest'; Judith McNaught, Jude Deveraux,..

Later, I tried to jump into something more 'serious', e.g. John Grisham's, but I found them boring and too factual. Then I started reading Sidney Sheldon's Morning, Noon, Night, and I instantly fell in love with his work.

Now, my collection has expanded to Jodi Picoult's, and I love most of her books. Other than Jodi's, I'm willing to try
any author's work which storyline represents the reality of life, which reminds me how fortunate I am; being blessed with a wonderful life, Alhamdulillah.

I'm currently reading this right now. (Based on true story)

Next on the my reading list.

Our Humble Crib.

For £600 per month, we got ourselves 2 rooms (one's converted into a living room/guest room), a decent bathroom & a lovely (but small) kitchen. Yes, it's expensive but believe it or not, we are the lucky ones, trust me. If you're thinking of Oxford as your destination, be prepared with lots of pounds.. But, insya-Allah, we'll manage..

Please bare with the furnishing touches.. It's not much, but it's home.. Our home.
