stuffs from abroad

Mum just got home from rombongan Cik Kiah ke Kashmir dan Agra. She had always wanted to go to those places since she first watched Hindi movies on wayang pacak when she was a little girl. She mentioned some names and characters but there were totally alien to me. I mean those were Hindi stars from the same days of P. Ramlee, not Shah Rukh Khan, let alone Hritrik Roshan. Not that I’m a fan of Hindi movies to begin with. Anyway, she got me some nice stuffs from there.


A cute leather clutch. I like!


A Taj Mahal fridge magnet and a traditional Kashmir meatball dish in a can. Just throw the content into a pot and presto!


..oo^_^oo..


My friend Eila just got back from her balik kampung trip to London. Her hubby’s family live there, so once in a while they would bring their kids to see grandma. Before she left she asked me if I wanted anything. “Get me the best shortbread in London!” I told her. A couple of days after she got there, her MIL left me a comment on Facebook saying that she already bought me “the best shortbread ever”.


“The best shortbread ever” according to Eila’s MIL. Liza saw her comment and immediately wanted some too. Sibuk je tau :-p


BPA-free bottles for Kak Lieya.

It just so happened that the day Eila was leaving, Kak Lieya talked about buying BPA-free bottles. So I asked Eila if she could help buy some as they would be much cheaper there. How cheap? 4 x 9oz Avent bottles for GBP 15 during sale, so less than RM 20 a bottle. Eila said the price in KL is RM 50 a bottle *gawk* Lepas minum guna botol ni baby terus boleh masuk Oxford ke?


..oo^_^oo..


Took my friends for a ride with Dobby to Empire Mall on Friday. We wanted to have lunch at Serai, but it was full, so we went to Belanga instead. The food was good. Mostly Kelantanese stuffs like nasi dagang, nasi kerabu, lompat tikam, ais teller etc.


Liza who thinks Marks and Spencer’s shortbread tastes better than “the best shortbread ever”. Ye ke?


Zaza who’s always underweight no matter how much she eats.


Me and Eila who had too many stuffs to bring home sampai penuh luggage. Fortunately she got some space for my shortbread!


P.S.: Entry caca marba macam ais teller. How un-OCD of me. Too tired to get my thoughts organized. Maka layankan saja.

D: I hv been in Kashmir for 3 and 1/2 month during the 2nd Kargil. Nearly exploded by gun shell from Pakistan side. If u manage to be there, u must take a complete cycle (From Chandigar, Srinagar, Kashmir, Kupwara, Leh, Ladakh abd Kashmir itself. If they allow me to stay one more month, confirm I will marry one Kashmiri. Memang lawa. Lawa sangat walaupun dengan muka yang ada kesan arang dapur. Sebab org kat sana jarang-jarang mandi - sejukkk.

Kawasannya taklah cantik sangat mcm dalam filem hindi. Jangan tertipu sebab more than 80% of hindi filem di shot kat luat mcm swist, paris dll. Banyak yang tertipu termasuk saya sebelum saya pergi sana. My house 'CASTLE 21' terletak dalam the best garden in India - Otty-, Kawasan filem. Setiap masa ada org buat filem kat belakang rumah.
