Hubby got all excited when he saw the advertisement in Astro about the Astro Beyond, featuring the High-Definition thingy in the television technology. He called Astro to subscribe. And yes, we had our Astro Beyond last Saturday. The picture quality is really awesome. If only they are showing the movie AVATAR at HBO HD, I will try not to miss watching it. It would be lovely and mama will once again venture in her own world of fantasy! Hahaha....

Just now, while I was doing my 'work' on my laptop, they, hubby and Syahmi were watching National Geographic HD. They were showing about SNAKES! Of all the four channels that Astro Beyond is offering, why on earth these two boys chose that channel to watch and of all the creatures in the world, it has to be snakes!!! Just imagine how the snakes look like on HD channel..eeeyouuuu.... I had to put on headphones and played some music at high volume to distract myself from thinking of that slimy thingy they were showing on TV. I hope none of the boys will have nightmares tonight!!!

The above paragraphs were composed yesterday night. Had to stop, around 11pm to go out dating with hubby, just for a drink. Ooo I'm loving that! It's not what we had, but it's the precious time together. *wink* *wink* Anyway, if you're wondering, I had limau nipis ais and hubby had teh-o limau panas.... no food, just drinks...

Enough said, let's move on to the next topic. Recipe! For this entry, I will post the recipe of another pau which I came across when visiting Along Roz's Blog. And she got it from Baking Mum's Blog. Thanks to both ladies for this simple and nice recipe. Allow me to re-post it here for others to try.


Ingredients :

400g Hongkong flour (pau flour)
200g water (I added more)
70g sugar
a pinch Salt
10g double action baking powder
7g instant dried
30 g shortening

Method :

1. Place water in the bread maker pan. Top it with Hongkong flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and instant yeast.
2. Set the bread maker to Dough and let it knead.
3. When the dough is combined, add in shortening and let the bread maker finish it's job of kneading and proving which will take about 1 1/2 hour.
4. Remove from pan and punch the air out. Cut the dough weighing 30 g each. Make it into round balls and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
5. Flatten the dough and wrap the red bean filling.
6. Place each pau on a piece of paper or small piece of banana leaf.
7. Arrange in the steamer and let it proof again.
8. Steam for 15 minutes.

    Adalah double action baking powder tu Kak Tie. Rasanya kat certain supermarket pun ada jual. Rupa dia sama je macam baking powder. Cuba tengok kat label dia ye. Kita pun suka inti savory, tapi dahnya, inti kacang je yang available that time...

    Kmal :
    Ha ah Mal, HD ni pakej yang terbaru dari Astro. Bayar lebih RM20 je dari Astro yang biasa tu. So far dia baru offer 4 channel dalam HD. ! channel ESPN tu coming soon. Tentang kualiti gambar kalau guna TV biasa tu, tak pasti pulaklah Mal. Kena tanya orang Astro la tu gamaknya ye....

  13. Good day, sun shines!
    There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
    I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
    Now, I feel good, I started take up real income.
    It gets down to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

    You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
