The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet.

It's been months since the last time Mira reached her school early. Ever since I discovered the ease of dropping her off via the back entrance staircase, I started to delay everything by half an hour. And we'll reach school 5 minutes before the bell rings. Heee...

SMART Tunnel
However, with the closure of the Smart Tunnel since Monday, I've no choice but to go back to our old routine by taking Loke Yew instead. The traffic has been smooth, though, so we ended up at school by half past six. Gilos awal.

Bila la tunnel nak bukak balik. Oh, Smart, how I have missed thee!

School holiday is just around the corner. I have plans to take a few days off next week, but no idea what to do to entertain the little missy. Probably I'll take her to the park or zoo or something. And a movie... or two. Shopping. Etc.

We'll see lah.

He that shuns trifles must shun the world.

Whad'dya know, there are quotes about trifle!

Last Saturday, a friend hosted barbecue at her place. We didn't notice it kinda coincide with Mother's Day until someone pointedly ask about it.

She asked if I can bring some desserts. I chose to make trifle as it is the simplest. Heh heh.

Trifle in the making

Recipe from here.

As you can see, there's a slight accident that time I poured the jelly on top of the custard, also not enough cream. I thought one can of whipped cream should be enough, but apparently not.

I couldn't find strawberry rolls at Tesco, so lantak je la dengan pandan flavoured roll. It made the whole thing colourful in the end, though. So all was well :-)
