Yesterday I got a chance to meet up with my blog friends at Mulan's place in Kerteh and among them were Kakliza the great chef and Fa the superb story-teller . Oh Boy !! I was so excited and delighted to meet and chat and laugh and eat with them .
Today I want to blog about how I got to know these 3 wonderful persons in my life .
1/ Fa -- 1993 , so it's been almost 17 years our friendship has bloomed . I got to know her right here in kemaman where her husband and I used to teach at a private religious school (Pusat Pengajian Taman Islam , Kemaman ) and we stayed very close to each other . If I could say this : Fa and her hubby are now like my sister and brother , that's how close we are .
Mulan & I
2/ Mulan -- 2006 , 4 years I've known her , the same age as my blog cos I knew Mulan thru her blog when I was in Jordan and she in Vietnam . She' an active lady , always energetic in carrying out her duty as a Home Manager . She used to stay in Ho Chi MInh City for 10 years (followed her hubby who was attached there ) and came back to Kerteh in 2007 , the same year I came back from Jordan ( I stayed in Jordan for 2 years ) . She's nice and I'm comfortable and bless to have her as my dearly sister .
Food, food, food...
3/ Kakliza -- 2007 , 3+ years now , knew her thru her infamous fotopages where I did my cooking recipe hunting from Jordan , almost everyday I surf into ker fotopage to look for recipes and at 1 time I counted the total of the recipe found in her fotopages was over 500 recipes... can you imagine how good and skillful kakliza is in cooking . I've tried many of her recipes and those food turned out very splendid indeed . I never knew and met her before in Kerteh but when I came back here in Kemaman , we were like old friends , she is so friendly and so warm whenever we meet .

So, yesterday was a wonderful day where Mulan cooked the best sumptous food including a 'vietnam kuih' ( sorry I forget the name ) . Thank you Mulan for inviting and for the delicous food that I had at your place .
I also got my Kakliza's signature on her latest cooking book " 1 Hari 1 Resipi, 365 recipes " and it would be ( would be ) my 2011 resolution ..cook 1 menu/day as stated in the book ..so , 1/1/11 " will be Daging Singgang" ( who wants Daging Singgang don't forget to drop by my blog to taste it ) ...hahahaha .
I never expected that blogsphere could bring a true friendship and I'm so blessed to have my blog pals to be honest and true in blogging ( there are those who are liars and cheaters ) .
Yours truly with Kakliza, Mulan and Fa ( she's a shy lady, so no full pic in cyberspace, so she covered her face and I covered mine ) ..
Fa, Mulan and Kakliza -- I'm so very grateful to have all three of you as my cyber and a real life friends and hope this friendship remains forever InsyaAllah .
