Snip, Snip & Beef Eggplant Stew

Alysa loves having long hair but she likes to let it loose. Tapi yang tak laratnye time sikat rambut! Since she has curly hair, I dreaded the time of combing her hair. Rambut dia dah panjang sampai tengah belakang. Her papa forbade me to cut her hair. When we were in Jakarta last year, K.Jun managed to cut her front fringe. Terpendek le pulak. Terus Hubby tak happy muka anak dia toye je..:D. Makin nampak le kebulatan dia.
 The other day on weekends, hubby got to handle their bath time. Time dia sikat rambut Alysa..ha baru dia tau betapa susahnya nak manage her hair! Tu after dah letak Sunsilk Leave On. So, dia pulak yang tanya Alysa nak potong rambut tak. As usual la, Alysa tak bagi. Pujuk ajak pegi hairdresser pun tak mau. So, we gave permission to Cik Jun to cut her hair. Masa tgh mandi petang, masa Cik Jun tgh shampoo rambut dia, terus snip ( as Adik loves to say it.. ) je rambut Alysa. Nasib sama & dia pun tak sedar. But, later after kitaorang puji rambut baru dia cantik, dia ok je la..hehe..

Alysa's new hair-cut

Hari tu I ada wat Beef Eggplat Stew. I first had this dish at Turkish Mum restaurant. Baru nak post photo. Normally, kalau eggplant ni, buat sambal or dalca je. Tapi instead of using minced beef mcm kat restaurant tu, I used sliced beef. Simple but nice.
