Percubaan kali ke-empat making is hard since my hubby doesn’t eat spicy food….kali ni buat mild je la..senang jugak buat briyani ni..dgn adenye briyani mix..thanks to one of Bangladeshi student who teach me and other cooking class members how to make Briyani..

How to cook Briyani
Wash rice well and keep wet for 10 minutes…Put a pan on fire and pour oil. After 2 minutes fry chopped onion until brown..use 1/2 teaspoon salt and fry the rice with onion for 7-10 minutes..(don’t use water at all in this time)..keep the fried rice in a rice cooker and pour boiled water..water must be 6 cups for 3 cups of rice ( don’t forget to switch on the rice cooker)..

For the chicken..mix chicken, yogurt, briyani masala, ginger and garlic paste, little oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and all other spices together except onion and keep for 10 minutes…by this time put a pan on the fire and pour oil about 200gm and make it hot..put chopped onion in the oil and fried them until the color changed into brown..pour the spicy mixed chicken into the pan and keep on fire for 15 minutes…mix the chicken well and use some water (1/2 cup or more)..after 20-25 minutes from beginning, put off the fire..

::a ToUcH StORy ThAt MaKes Me CrY::

The girl in the picture is Katie Kirkpatrick, she is 21 . Next to her, her fiancé, Nick, 23. The picture was taken shortly before their wedding ceremony, held on January 11, 2005 in the US .Katie has terminal cancer and spend hours a day receiving medication. In the picture, Nick is waiting for her on one of the many sessions of chemo to end..
In spite of all the pain, organ failures, and morphine shots, Katie is going along with her wedding and took care of every detail. The dress had to be adjusted a few times due to her constant weight loss...
An unusual accessory at the party was the oxygen tube that ketie used throughout the ceremony and reception as well.  The other couple in the picture are Nick's parents. Excited to see her son marrying his high school sweetheart...
Katie, in her wheelchair with the oxygen tube , listening a song from her husband and friends.
At the reception, katie had to take a few rests.The pain do not let her to be standing up for long periods ..
Katie died five days after her wedding day. Watching a women so ill and weak getting married and with a smile on her face makes us think..... Happiness is reachable, no matter how long it last. We should stop making our lives complicated..

Life is short
Break the rules
forgive quickly
kiss passionately, love truly
laugh constantly
And never stop smiling
no matter how strange life is
Life is not always the party we expected to be
but as long as we are here, we should smile and be grateful.

::PreParatioN For FuTuRe MoThErs anD FaTheRs CLaSS::

I’m officially 31 weeks! It is the best time to prepare for the born of my little and hubby went to hospital to register for preparation for future mothers and fathers class..which is to ensure what to expect when deliver baby and things to do and buy before the baby is first the nurse told us that this class is full for this month…and I’m very upset but the nurse told us to wait for a moment and she will call us back..after a few munites one of their midwife told us that she will make us a private class since my hubby has to go back to Malaysia to do experiment on June..3 weeks I will be alone in Sendai…Waaaaaaaaaaaa….:(

She started to explain all the documents that we need to prepare and she told me that in Japan most of hospital doesn’t use drugs such as pain killer or epidural..everything is natural birth..i’m scared..after that, she make us tour to the delivery room and showed us type of rooms that they provide inside the hospital..they have 3 type of rooms..first sharing room which is 4 persons in one room and share toilet..second is private room with toilet inside without bathtub..and the third one is private room with bathtub..she also showed us labor room and the position of mother when deliver baby..such a fantastic hospitality they served in Japan..although I’m quite scared but I feel happy with all the explaination she gave to me..makes me prepare and I hope I can do it!..

After that, she explained things to buy and prepare before come to the hospital. In Japan most of them don’t know how speak in the midwife gave me a dialog in Japanese how to call the ambulan when I feel pain..good job!..she also told me how to push and breathe when I feel contraction.. I was happy with this class and really hope that one day hospital in Malaysia will have this kind of programme....
"Friends..please pray for me and I hope I can deliver my baby easily and healthy...amin!"

Starting our journey from sendai and it tooks almost 4 hours to reach Nikko..and we managed to arrive at our hotel at Japan most of hotels check in time is 3pm..we stayed at Ohnoya Hotel..the cheapest hotel that we can get at is not a standard kind of is ryokan which is traditional japan hotel..

After being told by the 'obachan' that we can't check in at we decided to search for someplace to see and we went to Lake Chuzenji and Kegon Fall..
my lovely Sendai friends..Su, me and Hanis @ Lake Chuzenji
After a few hours tour around Lake Chuzenji and Kegon Fall..we drove back to hotel to get some rest and enjoy onsen (not for me because i'm pregnant)...
We started early the next day, so many place to explore and to bring 6 months pregnant lady on tour is making the whole trip go slow..haha...The first place we visited that morning is shrine..Japan is famous with varities of shrine all over their countries.. shrine that we visited is near to our hotel..and it’s gorgeous!
