My baby is back from Cairo! Adik arrived at KLIA on the 31st of July. The last time he was back was early last year during the turmoil in Egypt. However, we saw him 3 months ago when we visited him in Cairo. This time he will be spending 'Eid with us... insyAllah. His father and I didn't fetch him at the airport; his sister did because she wanted to 'kidnap' him for a couple of days so that he could help her make cookies for 'Eid. The daughter, Kak Lang has been into the Raya cookies business since last Ramadhan and this time she has doubled her orders so she needed help and who would be willing to work for peanuts except her own little brother! (fortunately for Adik she's giving real money..). The timing is perfect for her business as she has just completed her degree programme (and graduating this year...Alhamdulillah). And now both Kak Lang and Adik are in Kuala Terengganu with us (we went back home to Meru to get them last weekend) - still busy baking and packing for orders from the hubby's office-mates. At least I don't have to bake cookies anymore for 'Eid - actually I've already given up the bother and hassle of baking Raya cookies a long time ago and also since many people started selling home-made cookies; all you need to do is order, and then cough up the 'dough' ... so to speak!
