You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.

saya mmg sangat mudah terpengaruh....

masuk blog zazz, tgk dia makan nasi ayam...terus i semangat nak buat nasi ayam pulak. but for my nasi ayam i didnt put the typical salad sbb malas nak beli sekali byk then dont know what to do with it. so i just use my mixed herbs salad which is much much more delicious. and there is no tomato sbb my darling evil tak layan sgt tomato mentah. and tadaaa....got the recipe from here. tp i adjust sket coz i dont have daun pandan so i letak jugak air rebusan ayam i masa masak nasi tu. tak yellow kan nasi i..but taste wise sedap hoooo

masuk plak blog ayoi...dia promo junk foods pulak dah...so this morning went to the oriental shop and bought the usual one pack of mamee monster....ronda2 sket kat shelf junk food sekali nampak my all time fav...super rings!!! how come la before this tak pernah perasan. try jugak bukak mata kot2 ada twisties...sib baik takdak...kalau tak ayoi and family mauu meleleh tgk twisties i beli

and on sunday, ada lebih cheddar cheese masa buat lasagna for our PG Day so i buat cheesy windmill for our tea time. ni lepas ni no more cheese in our house....asyik makan cheese jer last week....dr cheesecake..ke lasagna.

senang jerk buat ni....potong puff empat segi....then each slice tuh potong every corner tp jgn sampai ujung....then tabur cheddar cheese kat tgh....and then bring the end of every corner ke tengah and tekan kasi dia lekat. then sapu susu and tabur gula halus atas...and bakar...so easy kan. so jes...i leh bukak bakery pulak tak?

my crumbles....

kalau update just with one pix and a line or two tu maknanyer apa? maknanyer i busy or malas or no mood or nothing to write...haahahah. gojes suh i venture into food business...BIG NO...nice pics (nice ke?) doesnt mean the food is super duper delicious. anyway, i wanna share with you some of my must have mags every month....

goodtaste by woolies and super food ideas. i came across goodtaste while having dinner at thai singha. whereas super food ideas kisah nyer tersalah beli tp terus tersuka. both mags provide super duper very easy to made meal. BHG plak dulu rajin la dok beli tp dah lama2 tuh malas plak....so dah tak termasuk category must-have dah. tgk program dia kat tv cukup lah...

SFI latest issue ada 1 whole page of 10 crumbles recipe guna rolled oats. coincidently i ada banyak sgt rolled oats lepas buat anzac biscuits (owh! esok anzac day....kena buat lg ke biscuit itu?). so skang leh try2 buat crumbles plak lps ni. mcm2 recipe dia bagi so i made one...apple crumble. sapa suka apple pie suka la ni kot. except for the pastry dia guna crumble....best!!

6 medium granny smith apple, peeled, cored and cut into wedges
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup of firmly packed brown sugar

50g butter, chilled, chopped
1/4 cup of firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup plain flour
1 cup rolled oat

combine apple, lemon juice, cinnamon and suga in saucepan over medium low heat. stir until sugar has dissolved. cook and covered for 8 - 10 mins or until apples are just tender. transfer to ovenproof dish

Topping: using your fingertips, rub ingredients together in a bowluntil mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

Bake for 20 - 25 mins

so this is it, my apple crumble with custard (ready made je). i think i prefer apple crumble compared to the normal apple pie sbb topping crumble sgt crunchy munchy. and i think it would taste even better with vanilla ice cream....custard tak ngam sgt. 1st time cuba so i buat half dulu

this is another crumble recipe baru buat kemarin - lemon cheesecake crumbles. tak minat sgt sbb too creamy tp mr evil suka plak.

500g cream cheese, softened
2 tbs finely grated lemon rind
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup thickened cream

using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, lemon rind and sugar until light and fluffy. add eggs one at a time, beating until combined. add cream, beat until combined. spoon into paper cases. buh la topping kat atas and bakar - 150 degrees.

topping dia mcm recipe kat atas.

by the way GOJES....this clip is especially for u....ko suka kan mariah carey

Release me....

During my studies day in MMU, alot of internal webserver ran by students posted tonnes of international and rare advert...funny...hillarious...I always remembered the one from Adidas during the fifa world cup..where you got eric cantona and the frenchmens battling it out in a large oil tanker..that was awesome...
Recently, here..local channel have aired a Saab advert on their new model with bio diesel power....what's strikes me is the song..it was so beautiful and kept lingering in my head for weeks...so i decided to youtube it and found the original singer....and boy...after reading thru the net...i was surprised the killer whale featured in the advert was abt Lolita...an orca incarcerated for more than 30yrs in a small tank exploited for the sake of entertainment...to this day...activist are still fighting for her freedom...and that song really strike a chord to me.....kudos to the Saab team for educating me abt Lolita..a small minded person who couldn't care less abt a mammal are truly touched by it...The movie Free Willy too was loosely based on this event..

BTW, to listen to the full song..just click on this link

its freezing cold....

sejuk2 ni makan french 'keladi' fries mmg heaven. goreng plak ngan my latest new toy from typhoon....purrfect. mr evil bought me this new toy last weekend after deciding that our old wok is no longer safe for us to use. home brand punyer so the surface dah terkeluar2...safe and sound in the tummy. of course i was eyeeing for that mr. jamie sets tp mak datok mahalnyer. grilling pan jer dah $200. but surprisingly today, while having lunch at nando's.....

evil: by hook or by crook, we must get that jamie's set before we go back for good
cheeky: huh?? why??
evil: arleen said it is a good investment
cheeky: okkk....tp mahal laa...we'll wait for the christmas sale then. (dlm hati - thanks a billion arleen)

mr evil must be talking to arleen abt our wok hunting....i hope she will continue giving my dear evil tons and tons of shopping advice. then i dont have to justify any of my shopping list.

tp satu jer la kuali baru ni....its too big for me to handle. setakat nak goreng ikan seketol mcm kelakar jer. tp takper...i'm being practical. takkan nak beli kuali mcm2 size kot...this is not padang besar.

my work...my paid hobby....

betol kah apa yg saya baca ini?? frens, pls confirm with me...

my comment:

kadar pencen - am not sure abt this one...tp memandangkan my father is in the scheme pencen...and me as welll....so bersyukur lah saya dengan penambahbaikkan ini

lanjutan umur persaraan - dr 56 thn ke 60thn...woowweeee!!! tp i tak minat sgt la ni. peluang naik pangkat or maybe pekerjaan mungkin jadi limited sbb lama sgt dlm service kan. but then, i'm gonna quit at my 25th years of service which is in 2028, no matter what. jgn depa pi tukor polisi 25yrs service tu sudah...mmg nak kena lepok. but let say la kan....let say ajerrr....i am already a 'somebody', maybe i change my mind....hahahha berangan la sket

pemansuhan peperiksaan Penilaian Tahap Kecekapan (PTK) - ader kah ini benar?? 100% benar?? this is so so so unbelievable!! so i kena amik ptk3 ke tak ni?? tp mesti dia ganti ngan something else ni.....ingat senang2 ke nak tarik balik 100%

pemberian semula elaun kritikal - syukur kpd mereka yg berada di perkhidmatan kritikal

penambahan elaun perumahan - alhamdullillah...leh i tambah harta

honororium - actually i tak hadap sgt ni...sbb gaji pun baru naik ntah baper % hari tu kan. so mcm demanding la plak nak mintak lebih2.. but org kata gaji naik is another thing sbb dah lama tak revised....but then i tak rasa sgt maybe because this is only my 6th yr in the service kan.

wah! sekelepuk depa approve 5 out of 6...why arr whyyy??? hahahahah
semoga perkhidmatan awam terus cemerlang, gemilang dan terbilang!!!!

when i'm feeling blue....

all i have to do is to 'go for my retail theraphy'. with reference to my entry in march (mcm ayat gomen plak).....here are the stuffs that i bought. dunno what happen i was feeling so blue that day...to be exact...turqoise actually.....

got myself 4 sets of cushion cover at the price of $7 each!!!. wanted to buy the inner cushion as well...but we travel by bus plus have to walk like 1km to the nearest busstop...next trip maybe.

sekali pandang mcm alas kaki...berkali2 pandang pun mcm alas kaki....but i like it so much...and its heavy...

i didnt know that turqoise and brown can 'clique' together so well...

my fav of all....table runner. tp sayang la nak guna as table runner. maybe we just frame it up ke...tapi panjang sgt la plak...we'll figure it out later - $10

another fav of mine...quilt cover set for only $15...cant resist la kan.....
