In case you guys do not know, it is the school holidays. And it has been five freaking days dealing with an 11 years old who loves to get on his four years kid brother. Every few minutes, I will hear the screeching scream, “OH MUMMY!!!!!” It is the devilish scheming four years old who knows that when his voice hits a certain pitch, oh mummy will always, always side him. It doesn’t matter who is wrong or right. The sharpest pitch will sets mummy off to, “David, you get into your room and don’t come out for the rest of the day.”
But less than five minutes, they are friends again and yeah, the cycle goes again. Haih….
Then, my #2 pulak has been so busy with his youth camp and I had been going up and down, up and down to Balik Pulau which is the other side of the island. Today, he is back but life so happening wan, going to some pool party pulak. So, I am again going in and out, fetching him, dropping him yadda yadda. Lucky my #1 never needs transport because he is taking his driving lesson and already got his own bike. Or else, four legs up in the air. Si khiao-khiao.
Stress until I forget to drink my daily cup of coffee. So, I substitute with a thick, bitter mug of green tea. But green tea doesn’t give me the kick like coffee.
When I was out, I wanted to go for some coffee but guess what, I found that I only have RM12 in my wallet and RM12 is not enough for me to sit in Coffee Beans (to kill 1.5 hours till pick up son). But I dare not go to those greasy kopitiam or mamak shop because, ish! where got people sit in kopitiam for 1.5 hours drinking kopi-o. Tiu, you think I what ah?
So, I went to nearby Tesco Extra (a new outlet) hoping to kill 1.5 hours, running on RM12. But niamah, the place is so huge and yet, so identical to all Tescos. With no money to buy coffee, I drive all the way home. Got back, sat down to take a breather, MSN a bit and tiu, have to go out and pick son again.
But thank God for the creation of Rum and Raisins chocolates. Yummm….Stuff face first, forget about weight.
And did I tell you that inspite of all that, I cooked lunch and baked this freaking healthy bread? No trans-fat, filled with lots of nuts and no preservative.
It helps to ease the stress too. Chew, chew, munch, munch on walnuts, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and I don’t know what else in the bread flour mix from CookingIsland.net. I tell you, mixing those flour and Omega-3 sunflower (no trans-fat) spread, water and yeast is so therapeutic.
When I press press and knead knead, I imagine passing those geram-ness to the dough. Ahh….it is so much easier to type a post than to reply comments wor. So, thank you lah, but sorry lah, I never got to say thank for all the comments in the earlier posts. Please come again and please comment, hor?
