semur 2

Hello Everyone, seems like an ages I've been neglected my Blog, so dusty in here, Hehe...

Well apart from my busy days, it has been very cold and dark earlier in the winter here, that makes me lazy to take a picture due to lack of lighting, but of course I'm still cooking variety of food everyday.

I also busy with my one and only daughter Ellyn, she's growing up a lot faster than i thought! She's a chatterbox girl yet very clever :)

Before i forget (although it's a bit late), i wanted to say, happy Fasting for my Muslim friends all over the world! Happy Ramadan. here is a smile from my daughter.

Btw i hope you had a great time and enjoy my Picture plus the recipe...
