I Ramble: 19 September 2018

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Meowsies! I’m back again! Work has been bad for my body that I’ve been rather ill. I’m still not well and I feel worse now. Huhu. Anyway, le husband has been great to me. I woke up today to find that he had washed my clothes and loaded them in the dryer, knowing that I will be needing my work clothes for tomorrow.

And now he’s cooking for us! T_T

I don’t know how my life would be wouldn’t this amazing human being right here. Sighs.

Okay, on other news…hm…what else is there to talk about?

It’s pouring here in Buangkok so I guess it’s basically indoor time today with le husband. We’ve had a few rounds of PUBG and I’ve smuled with much hilarity and maybe later we’ll be guitaring together…because I finally brought another acoustic guitar from my Tampines home to my Buangkok home. Yippy! It’s been really cool and fun and chill to just sit with le husband and play random stuff. I would be practising my chords and he would be playing arpeggios or riffs.

So yup, hopefully those who are affected by the weather will have a good day in today.

Here’s something for the eyes to see. Random vid lol.

And Allah is Al-Malik, the King.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Hey, all! So I’ve missed one day of blogging but that’s alright. I’m down with the flu. Huhu. Anyway, how have you all been? I hope you are not as sick as I am now. Hehe.

So today, le husband decided to have garlic bread for breakfast. Guess who made garlic bread? Yup yup, that would be me! You can check it out on my Insta-story @nurulhudamt. After making garlic bread for the second time, I’m pretty confident of making it now. And I have completely forgotten how it tasted like until I had it today! No wonder my husband asked me to make it again! :p

I got the recipe off Recreate with Rohit. Of course, I had to amend the recipe a bit as my microwave doesn’t have a grill function and I just used the usual bread you eat with a spread. I would advise you to get the Gardenia brand as the house brand ones such as Giant and Fairprice are flakier. The Giant at my estate doesn’t sell Oregano either so I had to settle for Italian herbs, which is a mixture of herbs containing oregano anyway. I didn’t follow the exact measurements as well as I don’t have a kitchen weighing scale to weigh the butter so I pretty much just scattered the pepper, herbs, chilli flakes and salt in amounts that I felt were suitable. Have fun exploring!

Besides garlic bread being a highlight for today, I have finally finished downloading and installing Diablo III on my desktop. My PC was too infected with viruses that we were forced to reformat. Le husband finally tested out Diablo and liked it…but I don’t think he likes it as much as PUBG! Omg, that game ah…

Yes, I’m playing PUBG too after being roped in by my UNIQLO colleagues! Omg! It’s just great fun playing with people you can banter with and shout at hahahaha! My PUBG is nurulhudamt and le husband’s is AmirudinAfro. Let’s have chicken dinner!

But of course, I’m super n00b at games so don’t expect much out of me. I will just ride on your success and get a chicken nugget hahahaha!

Now I’m kinda waiting for le husband to be knocked out by his flu so that I can play Diablo! HAHAHAHA! I totally felt the itch to play it after watching him play!

Let’s gooooo!

And Allah is Ar-Rahim, the Most Merciful.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

What an ominous date to choose to blog again! Hahaha! Anyway, how has life been treating you?

Well, it wasn’t smooth-sailing for me and I haven’t been the best person but alhamdulillah, I’m still alive and blogging! Hahaha!

UNIQLO life has made it difficult for me to balance life. It’s damn bloody tiring and wow, long hours are damn long but overall, I have got good colleagues to pull me through the difficult times.

Life with Beedin has been interesting. I think it’s cool that we went through some difficult moments because that adds a realistic touch to my marriage life. I also discovered that I’m not alone in my experiences. Certain aspects of marriage are common amongst couples. So yep, I think people should get married even though I always sigh in response to their question of, “How is married life for you?” Hehehe.

The sigh is not a completely negative thing. It is simply the best answer I have for now to express a mixture of both good and bad and real. I think once you’re married, you’ll know for sure what I mean!

I just told my husband I want to be a housewife and he threw the bolster on my face. T_T

SO SAD! HUHU!

Hahahaha! Well, that’s married life for you hahaha! Yes, of course, he didn’t do it violently!

But yes, I think I have really settled on the idea of being a housewife. I don’t really enjoy going to work. I just want to be at home. Long gone are the days of being a career woman. I just want to be domestic. Domesticate me!

On another note, I’m giving work another chance. Apparently, I will be doing more administrative work compared to my current manual labour jobscope lol in October. I know for sure that it will be more mentally demanding and less physically demanding. I also foresee working 12-hour shifts. And I also believe that I will no longer have afternoon and midnight shifts. I will have to wake up in the morning each day.

HUHUHU! SO SAD!

But anyway, enough of me being dramatic. Let’s just enjoy this wonderful cloudy day together and be chilled to our hearts’ content.

And Allah is Ar-Rahman, the Most Gracious.

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

The feeling I have been having lately is tired.

But now more feelings are trickling in.

Now I feel empty.

And I feel very very sad.

May Allah help me. – MM

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

I’m feeling extremely tired and somewhat lonely huhu. Le husband is hooked onto GTA IV on my desktop. Huhuhu. A part of me wants to game too but another part of me is simply feeling meh, too tired.

Hais hais hais. I finally played GTA V a bit more with le husband and I have been feeling the urge to play it but that very tired part of me is like nope, no way.

Hais hais hais.

I know, I have a lot of complaints right now but…well, there are quite a fair bit of things to complain about.

In all fairness though, I have swallowed quite a lot of things and to be honest, right now, I feel completely swallowed.

And I’m just struggling to fight it off.

Hais hais hais.

And Allah is Ar-Rahim, the most Merciful.

Bismillah.

Oh, hey, yooooo! So the exciting things that happened were basically Raya and that I finally cooked! I made mushroom soup and it’s delicious! Yippy! But I have also learnt a lot of things from it albeit the clueless things I did or the wrong things I did. I discovered my very own way of making soup using water, ikan bilis stock, shallots, thyme, and salt and pepper. I realised that I wasn’t supposed to use the stems of the thyme. Oops. I used far too much mushrooms, which is a huge waste. Huhu. I also now realised why the recipe required an immersion blender, of which I had none. That means my prep time will be longer in order to dice the mushrooms into smaller pieces. I’m far more confident about making mushroom soup now. Yippy!

I think we can now add that to my signature dishes. Hehehe. My sister said it tasted like Campbell soup and initially thought I cheated!

That is the recipe, which I only realised too late that it is too vague and too ambitious for an amater like me. Of all things to try for a first dish, really.

And that is my mushroom soup!

Have fun trying it!

And Allah is Ar- Rahman, the most Beneficent.
