As a Mom, I often yield to the interests of my daughter when it comes to exploring her interests in the kitchen, and baking has become a pleasure ...and a 'talent' for my girl.
Which way would you make this next time?
BARAKA ALLAHU LAKUMA..
"An easy, yet very yummy pasta salad. Almost any type of pasta may be used. Best if left to sit overnight."
While bread is toasting. Prepare the toppings. In a mixing bowl, add chopped tomatoes, basil, corriander, garlic and olive oil and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Align the bread on a serving platter, olive side up. Top each slice with the tomatoes, do it right before serving or the bread may get soggy.
Done..! How easy is that..!

I have had this cake many, many, years ago.. gosh.. I cant remember when..! but have never made it myself. This recipe has been in my 'to try' file for a long time... and now it's not!
Check piercing a skewer in the center and it should come out clean......confirms that cake is done...!
Note to Dali (if you are reading this): I have been making this cake three days in a row ever since you gave me this recipe... all the family love it. Thank you..!
It was 12:01, a minute passed midnight, the phone rang.. damned..! who on earth would be calling me in the middle of the night and disturbed my beauty sleep! Picked up the phone and there she 'yelled" ..."HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUMMY..! (to be honest, I actually forgot that it was my birthday..!). I heard she gathered her friends around and the girls started singing the birthday song over the phone. Am touched... and smiled to myself when they were done. Aahh... how sweet of the girls.. (hope these girls did not get into troble with the warden for sneaking out of their dormitory at this time..!)
Anyway, it was my birthday last Friday and it was a little sad because it didn't feel so 'magical' anymore. I had a fantastic day (as much as you can have at work!) and the celebrations continued into the weekend with some wonderful presents and people.
A lot of things changed for the past 2 years and you are trying to aim high and be the best that you can be... and today, you woke-up... you are on your way there. Maintaining a high grades every semester is what you are used to be during your college and universities years. Although it is difficult, you are still able to have the courage because maintaining good grades every semester gives confort to Mak & Abah for your education finances.
There were many sleepless nights, things to be sacrificed.
...and congratulations to your coursemates too..
Diana, Nicole and Roslan.
