Sunday morning. (Happy Mother’s Day)

Husband back then, when he was merely a boyfriend (he still is, but back then he is only that, nothing more ūüėČ ), he introduced me to Paramore, which¬†was very weird because he was into death/melodic metal. But I was in a spirit of giving, bought him a ticket to see¬†Paramore in KL and he loved it. He loved Hayley’s the-tweet-that-shall-never-been-mentioned, too.

However, I found this more or less this catchy song from Paramore first, recently.

 

It’s so catchy and full of meaning, that it reminds me on No Doubt’s Sunday Morning. I loved No Doubt when it was all about ska-ish pop.

Never seen them live before. But he did. Back in early 2000 (October 9 -that date sounds familiar-, 2000 to be exact) at PWTC, KL. Even offered a girl who was shorter than he is a jump on his shoulder for a few songs.

=_=” (not because of the girl, but the fact he got to actually see No Doubt live in their golden era. But nvm, I crossed one of my bucket list with my favourite rock band last year. No he didn’t tag along. >:])

 

 

Not forgetting,¬†on a more happy notes, it reminds me of this: (but there’s a slightly bitter memory about that song, but you’re not asking so I won’t be sharing)

Pre-Mother’s Day post

Sometimes I force myself to look on the bright side. Because bitches can bitch all day long, but I know for a fact that in some point in their life, they had a mum, or a mother figure, and at one point in their life, they must have loved the mother so much.

And no one is evil by its own. o_O

 

TIL John Lennon’s dad left him when he (John) was only an infant and the mum passed away due to an accident when he was 17.

TIL 100 years ago, Anna Jarvis who campaigned to honour those mothers in one special day in US and it was celebrated since, on second Sunday of May.

TIL, when I googled (omg, why are you still using Google. It’s EBILLL) about Mother’s Day, one link captured my eyes.

A Mother's Day...when mother is gone

A Mother’s Day…when mother is gone

It’s the first Mother’s Day without my mum when she passed last October. It has been 22 years since my husband lost his mum. So we do not have our biological mother anymore. Technically we are motherless child.

Motherless.

That’s a word that is hard to swallow. Or to even accept.

I saw beautiful Mother’s Day cards which I know she loved. Then I realised, I no longer have a¬†mother to give it to.

Boob cookies for mummies


boobcookies5-2My choc + fenugreek drinks just finished and if there’s no sale, there is no way I am buying more of it. I am too lazy to eat the fenugreek pills I just bought from¬†iHerb, and I just found the fenugreek herbs in its whole form from Fabulous Mom that belonged to my sis at the kitchen downstairs but she did not use it.

So I was thinking of a way to make a use of it. And I googled (!) what can I do about it, and most mums suggested making cookies.

Apart from fenugreek used as milk booster, I found brewers yeast and flaxseed is good to be mixed into the cookie batch. Found them at a local¬†online store (let’s shortform it to LGP), found the shipping price is a bit steep so I messaged the owner if there is an alternative way (free shipping above Rm100 ke apa ke) than going to the store myself. He read, ignored for few hours, then replied that he would follow up the next day. The next day came and went, and I think he must have been so busy with his organic store that a little customer service courtesy is forgotten (just like lowyat lucas, but that’s a different story altogether).

(If you are pregnant and still want these cookies, omit the fenugreek. From WebMD (!):

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Fenugreek is LIKELY UNSAFE in pregnancy when used in amounts greater than those in food. It might cause early contractions. Taking fenugreek just before delivery may cause the newborn to have an unusual body odor, which could be confused with ‚Äúmaple syrup disease.‚ÄĚ It does not appear to cause long-term effects.

Which means, there’s nothing wrong in taking fenugreek post-natal,¬†kalau during pregnant and you want to used it a little bit during masak2 is okay, but not in its form and in great amount. So omit that.

Sis told me those items can be bought at an organic store in MidValley for a cheaper price. Off we went, bought it with some other things at Just Life and hang out with friends at our usual place afterwards.

So¬†organic flaxseed ¬†500¬†¬†250g is RM6.50,¬†brewers yeast ¬†500¬†¬†250g is RM16.50, and whole oats¬†500g¬†is RM7.90. You can use instant oat, actually, it doesn’t matter. It will come out like a proper normal cookies rather than the one I made using whole oats.

I milled the fenugreek to powder form with the dry blender (alah, kalau nak buat cili api kering, guna tu..), bought few other things and make the kitchen upstairs my temporary experiment lab.

I included honey so try hard not to share with your baby who has teeth and below than a year. Husband nak rasa? Boleh aja. He won’t get any milk. ūüėõ
