I had completed my raya cookies project today. This afternoon, I bought 3 more containers of cookies at pasar tani. One for myself, one for my mom and another one for my MIL. Fair enough. So, all together, this year, I have jam tart, choc chips, almond London and this new biscuit (seriously I don’t know what was the name of this cookies. The only thing that I know, the taste was really nice! Worth it for RM15/50pcs)
Hmmm… now, am thinking of how I am going to carry these cookies (6 containers all together) into the flight on this Saturday? Now only I realize how greedy I am in bringing back all these cookies. No! No! No! I should reflect back myself, I am not greedy.. It’s my duty as a daughter and daughter in law to help my mom and MIL in their raya preparation. Isn’t it? I couldn’t help them much. But, this is the only contribution that I can give them, especially my MIL (since I’m going to take her son back to Tawau for 2 weeks to celebrate raya this year). Pity to her and my hubby. Because….. This year will be their first time celebrating raya far from each other. What to do? That’s what marriage all about. Sharing, sacrificing, caring and a lot of maturity stuffs to be face off.
I feel so grateful to have a very understanding hubby and in laws when come to this kind of issues. Hopefully I wouldn’t and never hurt their feelings for the entire cycle of my marriage though it might be impossible to achieve as we are only a normal human being. We can’t predict what will happen in our future. Still, will try my best to be fair to both, my in laws and my family side. I love all of them… To be honest, actually my in laws were more sporting in many aspects compared to my own mom and dad. Seriously! Yet, I still love all of them as much as they love me! :-)
Ok, we stop with my raya cookies story.
This afternoon, I flipped through a STAr newspaper (which rarely happens as I don’t like reading). Suddenly, I came across on one of the article about some of avoiding dairy products (as you all know was a hot issue in any newspaper lately). What makes me feel so sad is the photo on top of the article. The photo shows one of my childhood favourite sweets. It called “White Rabbit Creamy Candy”.
The sweets was among items now banned by the Health Ministry, after Singaporean’s Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority found that the sweets contained melamine, a chemical substance normally used to make plastic. Plastic? Adush! Hai yeeee….. I like this sweet so much last time. It tastes so good, creamy creamy and got very thin layer of which I also don’t know what that thing was called. So sad….. Am wondering if there is any other dairy based sweet, contained this melamine? I’m concerning because most of my favourite sweets usually made from milk, which is dairy product. Hmmm… meaning I have to be very careful next time in choosing any sweets to be eaten, especially those which contain milk. Or, I better stop taking any of it, since lately the newspaper has revealed a lot of shocking issues regarding this candy sweetie’s thing. Better avoiding then curing right? No harm for us.... And could also avoid us from having diabetic problem in future.... Pray hard! Bye bye to “White Rabbit Creamy Candy” :-(
