At last I managed to complete my 6 days of Syawal Fasting. My husband and I started late because after the 1st week of the Eid Celebration we renovated a small portion of our house.
Nevertheless despite the busy schedule of monitoring the renovation works I can still accommodate my friend’s order of steamed fruit cakes also a popular local delicacy for some people.
And not for getting my new fruit plants which I am deeply engaged in watching their growth. I have grapes fruits of 2 breeds red and green grapes, fig tree , mangoes trees, and mulberry tries .
Its been a month I have not posted any entry on this blog. I have been busy though but could not spare the time to write something. However, today since the number is so significant 12-12-12, I manage to pick up the courage to type not about tarts cookies but about Malaysian delicacies consistng of cakes, puddings and crepes deriving from the King of Malaysian Fruit which is Durian,
I would like to announce the change of the business niche from home made tart cookies to the diversity of the cakes and other local delicacies . I will resume the tart cookies only when the situation permits.
This is due to the condition of my right hand ankle suffering from sprain ever since 3 months ago. I have not been able to handle manually the pineapple and strawberry jam which needs total usage and my right hand. Furthermore these cookies also need to be rolled individual,ly also using my right hand. My right hand is not totally redundant however, but these repetitive movements are causing severe and intense pain.
I have visited 3 doctors for consultation. 1 was given different diagnoses but all 3 doctors gave the same types of medication ie the pain killers. Subsequently due to avoiding my dependencies on these medications , I have reduced down on taking pain killers on occasions only when the pain is severe and intensive.
