Banana Caramel Cupcake

My week run so slow ! well, at least that what I feel since my daughter sick, she got fever and coughing constantly for 3 days. Made me worry, and decided to take her to E.R on Monday evening (and came back home on Tuesday morning). Doctor said, that was pneumonia clinical , and she need to take breathing therapy. Thanks GOD, nothing major happen. And she is doing fine today :)

The funny was *thought it was not funny anymore* while we waiting at ER , I checked my Blackberry, and I found her pictures at ER from previous year. Oh, NO .. !! seems every year she go to ER :O - please, don't make it habit :( - I just want her become healthy child *knock knock the wood*

And after a week take care of her, thought that I need get relax a little bit, especially when i feel not well too. Taking a vitamins, a lot of fresh orange juice. Well, you know.. when mom get sick everything will messed up. Bake a simple cake for everybody, back to my book, sipping a cup hot tea, aah.. i feel much better.

Lets try this cake, this is not like your mom , cupcake *wink*

Fit, is everything alright? Hope that your daughter is fully recovered and enjoying these cupcakes too.

I know exactly how you felt when your loved one was sick... last year W was in ICU and that worried me so much especially when the nurses were not doing everything they were supposed to do for the patients... Hospital sucked..

Well, it is good that everything's over. Have the greatest time possible with our loved ones :-)
