To celebrate my “freedom” we went out makan at Nando’s, Mahkota Parade with all my children. Why Nando’s? Well, I have Vouchers. Save a lot of money eh. And with the new coastal road, it takes less than 15 minutes to reach Mahkota Parade; straight road and no traffic jam at all. Looks like I’ll be going to Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan more often then Jaya Jusco.
Then later in the evening, I have this strong urge to bake Muffins. I still have not received my electric oven yet so to my mom’s we went. About the oven arh…kinda upset with the lady whom I placed my order with. I ordered on Friday and she told me that she will let me know by this week about my order status. I called yesterday only to be told that she will place my order. What the heck! What happened to Friday, Monday and Tuesday??? No Order Day? If by this Friday, no news from her, I will buy the oven from Jusco; pay extra RM9 also nevermind lar.
Back to baking muffins. Actually I wanted to bake cupcakes but hubby prefers muffins because he said muffin is more moist than cupcake. Ok lar…muffin is easier and faster to prepare and bake.
Not easy to bake with a newborn who loves latching on my nen-nen. This is how it goes…
Breastfeed, he knock off.
Quickly prepare the batter. Thank God that it only takes 15mins.
Breastfeed, let the batter to sit for a while. Hand him to my mom.
Scoop the batter into the casing and bake.
While the muffins are baking; I tried for the first time making Buttercream. I only use butter, icing sugar, milk and vanilla essense. By the time I am done, my muffins are ready and my baby is wailing!
So I let my 2nd girl and her cousins do the piping of the Buttercream for me while I breastfeed my baby again. Unfortunately, the buttercream is not thick enough and the shape melted as they pipe. Anyway, we didn’t like the buttercream either; too sweet!
I only had my Rice with Sambal Belacan and Salted Fish at 9.30pm. Better late than never.
Missions accomplished all in one day.
