Kitchen Makeover - stove

Teks: : Rozanah Zakaria

Kita guna stove hampir setiap hari. Namun, musim PKP ni saya rasa ramai yang gunakannya setiap hari, bukan? Mustahil tak jika kita gunakan stove (dapur) setiap hari tapi masihh dapt kekalkannya supaya berkilat? Dulu saya pernah fikir ianya mustahil, namun PKP menubah kepercayaan saya itu.

Berikut adalah langkah mudah yang saya lakukan setiap hari supaya proses pencucian stove mingguan kita, tidak memenatkan.

1. Lap permukaan stove setiap kali selepas masak. Jika ianya diperbuat daripada kaca, boleh gunakan krim Cif dan span hijau untuk kesan kilat. Jika ianya permukaan logam, memadai gunakan cecair pencuci pinggan, kemudian lap bersih.
2. Cuci tungku seminggu sekali dengan berus dawai dan sabun Cap Kapak (warna hijau tau kuning).
3. Cuci bahagian dalam tungku (tempat keluar api). yang ini juga gunakan dawai besi (penggosok periuk dan krim Cif) untuk menghilangkan kesan hitam.
4. Lap tombol pemetik dapur dengan cecair campuran L.O.C dan Pursue (sukatan: 9 air, 1 pursue, 1 L.O.C). Cecair ini juga saya gunakan untuk lap permukaan kabinet di dapur.
5. Siap!

Akhir sekali, untuk setiap hujung minggu, bolehlah cabut tombol pemetik dan tungku bahagian dalam untuk pencucian yang lebih teliti.


Selamat mencuba!

Appreciate While You Can

Text: Rozanah Zakaria


Oftentimes, we choose to dream on to get what others have. Though it’s not applicable to all, I believe most of us feel that at times.

So, learn to appreciate what we have, while we can. Take for instance, our family members who are around us, staying with us. We see them , we talk to them, we eat together with them every day, usually on ‘auto-pilot’ mode where we don’t even have the thought that we would be losing them one day, or it may be the other way around.

What I learn most during this time is to appreciate those breakfast moments I have every morning. A sharp pang of thought struck me one day that this was a luxurious I’ve been longing for. When my life was once a chaos, always short of time, even for a cup of coffee in the morning with my husband and daughter.


Now, I have plenty of time to cook every morning, preparing a few dishes for us. I often have an hour calm and satisfying breakfast with my daughter and both my parents in laws. No more morning rush that I didn’t even have a minute to talk to my father in law before going to work. What a countless blessings!

This MCO is an eye-opener for me that, despite my aplenty of flaws towards Him, He still grants my wishes. How else I could be ungrateful?

Let’s ponder and appreciate our life and those around us while we can.

Enjoy The Present

Text: Rozanah Zakaria

Before the MCO, I couldn’t really recall the last time I had a proper meal with my family. My life was always on-the-go. Breakfast at the school canteen, lunch that was always skipped, and at timesdinner at the tuition centre. Usually by the time I reach home, it’s already 10.30pm and my daughter would be already sleeping - on the couch waiting for me to get home. What a sad fact. Those were the days, when I seldom got to enjoy that present. At the end of the day, I would regret my busyness that I barely spend even a little time sitting and talking to daughter. Now, with this MCO, staying at home and going nowhere, I start to see the magnificent PRESENT in front of me. I realise now that I am very lucky to have an understanding husband an an obedient daughter. Both of whom I failed to appreciate fully.

God is giving me the chance now to enjoy and appreciate the present. I promise myself that this one opportunity I won’t let slip by any chance. Thank you Allah.

Let’s enjoy the present for yesterday was gone and tomorrow is till uncertain.

Calm

Text: Rozanah Zakaria

 At the first stage of MCO or PKP, I thought I would be doing just fine, yet I started to feel anxious on the second week of it. Thinking of the time when I had the freedom to roam around town after work, wasn’t a helpful one, rather it made me feel more coop up and I start to suffocate even at the thought of it. Then, I realise, I must do something to overcome the bad vibes enveloping me. With that realisation, I know one thing I should do. I picked up the Holy Qur’an. Reciting the verses every day, I get that feeling I had been longing for: calm.

Let’s embrace this MCO calmly and positively.

Leisure Time

Text: Rozanah Zakaria

I used too think I really need extra time for me to really enjoy it with my family. With this MCO enforcement, I was suddenly shocked at the ample time I have, that I wasted most of it with lack of planning. Days gone without me accomplishing anything extra. They were just like any ordinary ones before. Then, I started to think, ‘I shouldn’t let everything drift by without me reaping any benefits of it.’ Then, I plan. Though not too rigid, doing some mental image of what my next day would be, work wonders. So, I start doing that every other day. My life starts to change.

Happy staying at home everyone!
