Bayam masak asam (Javanese spinach soup) is one of Javanese (from Surabaya) main dishes, maybe that is why my worker, Wak Mustaqim really diligent in sowing spinach or bayam in Malay. When I visited Surabaya last February, our Hotel Restaurant serves these dishes each morning. I learnt that they like to have it with porridge or white rice for breakfast (Honestly, I love to have spinach soup with white rice and sambal but not for breakfast). knowing that Javanese people using a lot of spinach in their diet, recently I bought two packs of white spinach seeds and Wak Mustaqim Silently sowed these seeds. Well...This is what I got.

It's been a long time since I' am not writing anything in here. It's been a lot of developments and activities around our farm. I have ten new kids by the end of the year 2013, new bridge, a new fish pond and we just finished planting rubber trees seedling in our 3 acre land before the drought season came in the end of February. But for the time being let me share with you the pictures of our doe, given birth to a kid in August 2013. This is the second born in our new pen in Air Karah.

Ramadhan al Mubarak has come again, as for me and the rest of the Muslims around the world; our daily routine has changed a little. During Ramadhan we are more focused on our spiritual activities such as fasting, prayer and reciting al Quran. It also means less time for blogging (smile).This Ramadhan three of my kids were not with me, Abang still in KSKB Sungai Buloh, Azim is doing his practical training in Hospital Sungai Petani Kedah, and my daughter meme is in SMKA Kuala Selangor. I miss them very much especially my daughter because she always accompanies me to the mosque for Tarawikh in the fasting month. This year my daughter will sit for his PMR exam, so she won’t be back until Aidil Fitri holiday. Look alike I have to go alone to the mosque along this Ramadhan. However my son, Iqram, has come back from Egypt to spend his summer holiday with us. That makes our Iftar mood, further more my nephews and niece (Alif, Lin and Eppy) always come home to breakfast together.
|Our daily routine Insyallah|
