Baking with seven dwarves

We had eight kids in the house from last Sunday till Wednesday - four of ours and the rest of my cousin who left for the Land of Kiwis Wednesday evening...(Superwomanwannabe - I hope you didn't hear the unusual cacophony over the four days!).

Wifey was at her wits' end on what to feed the kids for one of the dinners and I suggested pizza. Off we went to Bagus, Taman Melawati to get the raw ingredients and ready made fresh pizza base.
I saw at one of the aisles muffin pre-mixes and I thought it'd be fun getting the seven dwarves (minus Yusof who was at his cousin's house) at home baking! They enjoyed every minute of it and finished all the muffins one go! The most beautiful part was to see how a simple activity could bring them closer....After all, they only meet once a year. With them down under now...it'll be at least two or three years that they will meet each other again!

Haq
it's true.. sometimes simple activities among kis would be the most memorable ones to them once they have grown up later. At least that would remind them all their good time growing up together..
