Yes....I was on leave the whole week last week. It all started out with an eye infection on Monday which resulted in two days of MC. And I already had planned leave on Friday. So, my boss told me to take the whole week off since I had 40 days to clear and only 2 more months to do it!
Yes.....I will be out of job by end Feb. Hopefully some news on my new contract will come before I deliver. Can't imagine myself doing a teleconferencing interview in hospital!!! I think my milk will like dry up on the spot! (smiles)
Anyway, my parents were also down last week (part of the reason why I so readily agreed to take off). But no, I didn't manage to get much Christmas shopping done. Partly due to the fact that I was trying to search for a dinner gown with a 5-month huge tummy. Empire cut dresses sure seem hard to come by when you are really looking!!!
Also I discovered that I have not really been maintaining myself very well. Ummm.....I shall spare the details of my bulging unsupported fats! :)
And I also decided to whip up a new dish to satisfy my craving of kerabu mee hoon. I used:
1) 1 bunga kantan (only used the pink flower bit)
2) 5 leaves of limau purut
3) 1 medium sized serai (the inner end parts)
Cut all these ingredients extremely fine. And I MEAN extremely fine.
Boil some mee hoon.
Add the hot meehoon to your raw finely sliced herbs. Pour chilli tuna over the whole thing. Added in half a lemon juice and mix well.
Actually, I should have used lime instead of lemon. Also should have added small onions and dried shrimps and used tom yam tuna instead. But well....the mixture still turned out great. And apart from the slicing, this dish is relatively easy to make.
Hubby also found it good! :)
I would be making it again the next time I am on leave. And next time I would try to get my Christmas shopping done!
By the way....am I the only one working during the year end?
