Part of the plan... and Hershey's Best Brownies


I have so much in mind of things to do before the baby comes... mcm2 bermain di minda ku.. hehe.. of course we can plan everything to the T but when it comes to executing the plan, it's actually a bit tricky.. and it's just a PLAN.. anything can happen in between, right? Alhamdulillah everything is going accordingly up until now.. We sent Imran to my parent's place in Kuala Terengganu for him to start schooling there.. Since i will i'allah deliver sometime in early August, we figured it's best for him to start schooling there this month... at least he is there before the fasting month.. or else with the new place, environment, friends, teachers and THE Terengganu slang... plus, fasting... he'll be too overwhelmed! 

So today is his 2nd day at school... That's actually my school... i was the head prefect there in 1989 ya all! Tak banyak yg berubah pun kat sekolah tu.. when i entered the school during election, the ambience is still the same... same old blocks, same old white sand.. kat blakang tu pantai Chendering tau.. the school is VERY near to the beach.. jalan belah kanan tu jalan nak ke pantai... 2 minit je sampai.. 

He (Imran) told me last night, Imran tak faham sgt la cikgu cakap ape.. sebab cikgu cakap Terengganu! (haha).. esok (hari ni) imran ade riadah.. kena pakai baju putih.. nak main bola.. imran dah bgtau kawan imran, imran nak jadi Goli.. kawan imran kata, " Awok jadi goli sokmo ah!" (lol) 

He'll have such a great time at the school! :D  


I've made this brownies many times.. give it a try if u crave for chocolatey gooey sticky brownies!
