Cookies and cookies
Today, I've been getting ready for our trip to my husband's family home about a 3 hour drive ffrom KL. Generally we have been collecting food, particularly cookies which we ordered a couple of month's ago. Our house is now full of jars of beautifully hand- made (by a cousin, not me) cookies. The cookies themselves are a mixture of traditional and contemporary recipes. Every year new and old recipes appear. We've got a lot as they are served to guests who come to the house during the festive season and a lot of people generally come to visit my parents in law as they are the most senior members of their family around. By senior I actually mean old!
I got out our traditional clothes this morning and packed these too. About the only time of the year that I actually wear traditional costume is around now and oh, sometimes to family weddings. Although I admire the costumes, I don't actually feel that comfortable wearing them. I feel as if I'm dressing up! My husband and children on the other hand look natural and wonderful in traditional outfits.
More about this later and possibly if I can manage it and I don't feel too silly, a picture!
