The Horrible Bus Crash In Sabah

The horrific accident had happened at Jalan Ranau Tamparuli, Kg Kaporingan in Sabah involved 32 passengers and a driver. Seven Bruneians lost their lives in the mishap.

More stories about the crash, please click HERE.
I just dont dare to post the pictures here....so sadden by the news coverage. I burst into tears... :'(


His Majesty also issued a command for all facilities, including the cost of medical treatment for the injured and the transportation of the bodies of the victims back to Brunei by aircraft, to be borne by His Majesty’s Government. (Extracted from http://www.bruvoice.com)

So blessed to be one of the loyal Bruneians....long live His Majesty. Next week we are going to be on our vacation to Sabah....may our journey be blessed and protected by Allah...amin...amin...amin...

The Lamap Inquiry-Based Science EducationTraining

On the 7th November - 12th November 2011, I attended the ISBE Training held at Pusat Tingkatan Enam Meragang. Despite the long journey to the center where the training was held, I gained a lot of new knowledge and of course the joyous feeling when meeting friends (^,^).

Some random pictures during the ISBE training sessions:


We were trained by these special lecturers from France.

Exeprimental activity ~ The amount of salt in water samples.


The stomata of leaves


Demonstrating the formation of solar and lunar eclipses.




We were trained to become the ISBE trainers for the Bruneian Science teachers at the national level next year. We felt the job that was delegated to us was very heavy but with the collaborative teamwork spirit among us....I am sure that everything will run smoothly...Insya Allah.

Their First Time Ride...

Habibi and Habibati would love to experience riding on a bus. Last week, they had an appointment with the skin specialist at the hospital and their wish was granted at the same time. Since there are shuttle buses provided to pick up and drop off patients/doctors/nurses/staffs to the hospital, so it was such a great opportunity!


The kids were very supa dupa excited...(^_^)...

Something funny....the kids requested me to bring them again to ride on the shuttle bus...until up to 4 rounds to and from the bus stand and the hospital! hahaha

Loving these red benaficial gems...


Pomegranates...I always love the sweetness each 'gem' brings out....

Habibati was enjoying her red gems at the backseat of the car. I enjoyed mine in the front passenger seat...and....romantically fed my dear hubby some while he was on wheels...*giggles*...

The Must-Try Recipe...

I have tried this recipe shared by this lovely and creative mommy . The little helper was with me too.....(^;^)....

I love the rich chocolaty taste....the soft texture....and most of all.....it was very easy to make! The taste is almost like brownies but the different is that , this cake is steamed but not oven-baked. I might one day will innovate the recipe by adding some peanuts or almonds and cheese cream.

Thank you Sarah's Mommy for sharing this fabulous recipe (^;*).


If you guys wanna try out this recipe please check out the recipe HERE...all the best!

Our Simple Dinner..

It was just something simple and instant. Mr hubby bought the instant Dhall Curry (Malaysian Product).


We had some french loaf and prata to match the dhall curry.



The taste was fabulous.........Alhamdullilah.

Mr Little Toadie In My Flat!

I slipped my foot into my flat and felt something soft and cold......

then I pushed harder.....

but I can't!!


Why???


I grabbed my flat and investigate what was inside...
It was a little toadie inside!


I screamed aloud and my dear hubby had to remove it from my flat......so lucky it was only a little one...!

Note : Now that I realize that the colour of the toad's skin synchronized the colour of my bronze flat!

The Annual Sports Day

Yesterday our kids' school was having their annual sports day. Hubby and I were present to witness our kids participating in the sports activities....not to disappoint them ....(^_^)...

Marching to get ready for the games....

Although the kids didn't win any medals but they sure had real fun with the games....that was more important ya..

The Cooked Watermelon Rinds

This is a very traditional country dish....

Last night, I cooked the water melon rinds (the while pulp) with some prawns. If you happen to buy a watermelon, please don't throw away the rinds. Have a try on this easy recipe.

Saute the sliced shallots, garlic cloves and fresh chillies with little canola oil until fragrant. Then pour in some water and wait until it boils. After that put in the sliced rinds and prawns. Put in some salt and some Maggie Cukup Rasa granules to taste. Done!

Safely Returned...

Alhamdullilah...they have safely returned to the abode of peace in good health. Semoga mendapat haji yang mabrur...amin...

Exam Fever

We are approaching to the end of Year 2011 and the exam season has come.....and after that.....holidays!!

I have to make some revision worksheets for our kids....thank goodness....some worksheets can be printed freely for the educational websites too. Their final year examination will start on the 8th until 12th of this month. It is quite hard to engage them with the revision sessions....hahaha....we have to 'pujuk rayu' with them!

I am sure every parent would agree with this saying:
"If the children are having their examinations.....the parents are in deed too"

TechExpo 2011

We brought the kids there on Friday which was held at The International Convention Center. First we went to the IncrediWorld Amazement Park and had to pay $3 per pax....even the kids were charged the same amount...(@.@)...


Inside......


We had a close encounter with the styrofoam-made animals and learnt about their amazing facts too.


Below is the Mirror Maze. I did not finished the 'journey' because I felt dizzy and scarred! I am actually having 'Nyctophobia' ---> the phobia characterized by a severe fear of the darkness.
Mr hubby and Habibi successfully finished the pathway without bumping into the mirrors....well done!

Then, we walked into the other section of the expo with a hope to get a very close encounter with the 'robots'. Although the robots turned out to be the small ones only but the kids were very happy. The cute and smart robots showing off their talents....

Habibi tried using the remote control of the robot.

At the other section again....Habibi met the mascots of some Angry Birds. Habibati refused to take some pictures with the red angry bird.....*lol*

I managed to purchase this pink bag for my lappy.....love...love..love.....so pink...!
