Tetamu Allah

I was about to go out, nak hantar Iman, Iffah & Abbas (my nephew) to school. Tiba2 nampak dua orang makcik duduk bawah pokok nangka depan rumah aku. At first I thought mungkin makcik indon cleaners, sebab selalunya time tgh hari ni, mana ada makcik keluar rumah, unless cleaners. Tengok2 my neighbours. Mungkin tumpang berteduh bawah pokok nangka depan rumah aku sebab sejuk. Aku offer aunty2 tu utk duduk kat dalam rumah sementara dia orang berborak. They declined, kata sekejap je.

Pastu, lebih kurang 20 minit kemudian, balik dari sekolah budak2 ni, aku tengok ada lagi aunty2 berdua tu. Must be pretty serious conversation, tak balik rumah lagi. So aku ajak masuk dalam rumah, buatkan honey citrus tea for them and bagi air sejuk. Wanted to offer them the bread that I made, unfortunately, bread tak masak lagi, still dalam oven. Both aunty were so happy.

Sometimes kita tak tau, sapa yang Allah akan hantar as tetamu kita. Tak sangka jiran aku adalah tetamu yang Allah hantar untuk ke rumah aku today. Alhamdulillah...

For nisa, this is the recipe that u requested. I dah make some changes to the original recipe. Bawah tu roti yg baru je keluar dari oven.. hehe

Not So Sweet Bread

  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 11gm of active dry yeast
  • 1/2cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 10 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the warm water and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the top, and let it stand for about 10 minutes, until the yeast is foamy.
  2. Mix the milk, eggs and salt into the yeast. Measure the flour into a separate bowl and crumble the shortening into it using your fingers until it is barely noticeable. Gradually stir the flour into the wet ingredients. Mix using a wooden spoon until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and starts to form a ball around the spoon. Cover with a hot wet towel that has been wrung out, and set in a warm place to rise until double in bulk. This should take about 45 minutes or more.
  3. When the dough has risen, pour the melted butter over it, and knead for about 2 minutes. Roll squares into balls, and place into greased round pans, spacing about 1 inch apart. Let rise again until doubled in size. You could also refrigerate the dough, and let it rise overnight for baking the next day.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Bake the rolls for about 12 minutes, until golden brown.
