2nd Confinement : Guide to make red date tea

Bismillahirahmanirahim..

Last entry was in March..reason? Malas due to office work and the morning sickness yang bukan sahaja in the morning,but all day round for the whole term..well almost... Anyway all those will be lifted off my shoulders soon insyaAllah ;)

My EDD is approaching soon..and its a YIPPIE for me because....my last day for my maternity leave will also be my last day in the corporate world. Words cannot describe how happy this make me feel.

A decision I made without much hustle in mind..Alhamdulillah dengan percaturan and rezeki Allah..

:) Dont know how I will be handling the days nanti..but I have no doubt coz Im putting my full trust in Allah s.w.t...I know He will help us through..emotionally and mentally and financially...ameen...

So back to my confinement preparation.Nothing much indeed. Barang-barang guna semula sahaja from Dahlia's barang. We just top up on the consumables sahaja..Other than that, isnyaAllah cukup.

Now,this first entry I nak share to myself about "Guide to make red date tea"

Memang sedap. Dulu masa 1st pantang, my mom yang selalu buatkan this drink..I like.For this 2nd pantang,semua try buat sendiri..insyaAllah.
