Happy Monday everyone!!! How was your weekend? Mine was great.
So, it was my birthday on last Friday. Yup! I’m older than last Monday now.
Didn’t make anything special this time. Only celebrated with husband and daughter. But I got something BIG from husband and my in-laws for this birthday. Literally BIG. It does not related to kitchen or craft. Na-ah. Can you guess?
A digital piano! Yes! I am so very lucky.
I used to learn piano when I was in junior high for 3 years or something. I had to stop because in senior high I became very busy and had to do so many chef training in different cities.
But lately, I listened to lots of piano music / songs and in one of my essay in the school I wrote that I miss to play piano again and I showed my essay to my husband so he can check it for me without thinking about the piano part.
And so last Thursday, there was a big package for my husband. But I could see the package said digital piano and I was like really?? Are you kidding me? I finally have my own digital piano? No way!
And soon after that husband messaged me not to open it until he gets home.
Then, after he gets home, he told me to lock my self in the kitchen or bedroom and do not go out until he tells me to. I didn’t mind, since I had to cook anyway.
After around 30 minutes he called me to go out from the kitchen. And there it was, my digital piano stood on an empty space in our living room. Welcome to the family my new friend :)
Don’t worry though, I will show you my new friend’s photo sometime this week :D
As for the food, I made my self a nasi kuning komplit (yellow rice with the side dishes). And a bit unusual birthday cake, mini croquembouche with lemon cream filling. Why croquembouche? Dunno, just felt like it. I will share the recipes in another blog posts :)
So, since I got a big present for my birthday, I want to share the happiness with a giveaway. This is my very first giveaway, although it’s not much but I still want to share a bit with all of you my awesome readers :)
