Sweet Sour Fish


Assalamualaikum to all. I guess it is still not too late for me to wish all my Muslim visitors a HAPPY EID-UL FITR. I hope all of you had a wonderful Eid.

I had been busy since before Eid. That explains the lack of updates in my blog. Before Eid, as usual, I was busy preparing cookies for orders and also for the family. This year, I didn't bake much, infact I just baked for close friends. Thanks to the haywire blood pressure reading recently. I had to be extra careful before my freedom to take orders is doomed forever. ;)

We went back to Melaka for Eid. I didn't snap many photos as before, so there's nothing much to share. But nevertheless we had a good time visiting family and friends.


This was one of the menu that I had cooked during Ramadhan. Thank you to Kak Liza for sharing the recipe with us.

Suji Brunei


It is 26th Ramadhan today. Time flies without me realizing it. Honestly, I feel this Ramadhan went by so fast! Eid is just around the corner! Maybe I was just TOO busy trying to get everything organised and settled. But I am quite happy with what I've achieved so far. I hope to be able to complete my long list-to-do before Ramadhan ends.

Thank you again to all of you for sparing some of your precious time to pay me a visit eventhough my blog had been quite quiet especially this Ramadhan. I hope to be able to update more often if time permits.


Had been keeping this recipe for quite a while and kept saying that I am going to try it out. Well, the recipe stayed safe and sound in the file until this week.. finally it's free!!! Hahaha... anyway, thank you to Puan Harlina Mahdar of RNet for the recipe. But it was Mak Lang Azie who shared the recipe with me. And not to mention Che Mat Gebu for always 'poisoning' me with his tried and tested recipes. One of them is this lovely Suji Brunei. Thank you to all.

Karipap Pusar Sardin

Had been wanting to make these spiral currypuffs with sardine filling ever since I watched our First Celebrity Master Chef, Dato’ Fazley Yaakob making them in the Master Chef Celebrity show. After that, Kjee made them too and I said to myself, I just have to make them myself one fine day! And that fine day only came yesterday... hahaha... my 'engine' is so slow! But better slow than never right.

To be honest, I didn't prepare the filling according to Kjee's recipe because I had some leftovers sardine from yesterday's Iftar. I added some boil diced potatoes, dice onion and mix them well. Thaa dhaa... there goes my recycle filling! Nothing goes to waste.... *wink* However, if you wish to prepare the filling, I've posted Kjee's recipe as well. Minta halal ye Kjee...

So, thank you to Kjee and RinnChan ...mmm senyap je makcik ni sekarang, buat apalah tu agaknya.... And also to Dato’ Fazley Yaakob for the inspiration.

Yam Icecream Pudding

Hello everyone? Miss me? No? Huhuhu... siapalah diriku untuk dirindui.... ek elehhh... merajuk ler plak... ahahaha...acah je!

Not everything that is 'not nice' (as my daughter had put it) stays not tasty forever. It's up to us to find a good recipe to transform it into something delicious. Or if you're creative enough, you can just create one. What's important here is, nothing goes to waste.

This happened to me last week. Fatin and me went to the shopping centre to get our groceries and she took a small tub of Yam Icecream. After Iftaar, she just can't wait to enjoy her 'dreamed' icecream. But soon as she tasted the icecream, she had this 'silly look' on her face. She said,"Mom, the icecream is not nice". Oh oh.... now what do I do with the balance icecream in the tub???? I googled in the internet for recipes that I can use and wallah.... thank you to Che CT for 'coming' to the rescue! And guess what, the pudding turned out to be lovely! I made just a quarter of the recipe and managed to get 6 puddings. Thank you Cik Ct and Kak Ida for inspiring us with the recipe.
