Anyway, is there anyone out there who has a Kenwood Major dough hook and no longer need them? If so, kindly contact MULAN. Thank you...

Cempedak Butter Cake


What is the function of turning on hazard lights when driving? Well, it's supposed to be helpful. It should make the driver feels safer if he or she is driving slow in a rainstorm when the visibility is very low. And at the same time, alerting other drivers as well.

But yesterday evening, when hubby and me were on our way to the driving range at Kota Permai, we followed a car with hazard lights on, driving in the middle lane and the visibility was quite alright though it was pouring. She meant well by turning on the hazard lights, but what she doesn't know, she was holding back quite a long traffic behind her! The road was clear after we overtook that car!


Kak Fauziah, my neighbour gave me some lovely cempedak she brought back from her hometown last Sunday. Since I was too lazy to fry them, I decided to 'transform' the cempedak into cakes. I said to myself, just be bold, and give it a try, I'll never know the taste unless I bake and taste it myself! And alhamdulillah, I chose the right recipe. It turned out lovely to my taste. Thanks to Kak Fauziah for the cempedak and also for the feedback. Not forgetting to my loyal food tester, Saey. Thanks for the positive feedback! *wink*

Currypuff pastry (Ros)


Life has so many great options...
But you don't have to always pick what seems to be the best...
Just pick whatever makes you really happy and it will be the best..


You (both hands on the waist.. ala ala Mak Tiri style) : Maaamaaaaa.. where areee you??
Me (panting) : I'm here!! I'm here!!!
You (eyes opened wide... macam nak terkeluar biji mata!) : Where have you been???
Me (eyes blinking... gedik style) : Just at home...
You (mouth opened wide... macam nak telan orang!) : Then why is your blog not updated?
Me (with a confident face... toya tapi ayu ayu gituuu) : Lazy...
You (both hands up in the air) : ..................


I love to eat currypuffs and actually I love to eat the currypuffs that I made myself.... hahaha... betul punya poyo ayat mama! The only problem is, just too lazy to do it. Hish...

Anyway, since I have some leftovers of currypuff filling laying lazy in the fridge, I decided to try this pastry from Ros's blog. And all the effort (hahaha... effort la konon kan, macamlah susah sangat nak buat! Ngeh ngeh ngeh) didn't go to waste. It turned out lovely. Thank you Ros for sharing the recipe with us....

Ingredients :

Currypuff beef filling

400g flour
2 tablespoon margarine (I used Planta)
1/2 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup chilled water
salt to taste

Method :

1. Add salt to chilled water and set aside.
2. Place flour in a bowl. Rub in the margarine to resemble bread crumbs.
3. Heat oil and then pour into the flour. Using a spoon, stir the dough. It will be crumbly.
4. Add chilled water, a little at a time and knead till a soft and smooth dough is formed.
5. Wrap the container with the dough and keep in the refrigerator for 1 or 2 hours. This is to get a crispy pastry and also it will make the dough much easier to handle.
6. Take a bit of the dough, the size of a ping pong ball and roll flat.
7. Place some filling in the middle. Fold over and pleat the ends of the pastry to seal in the filling.
8. Fry till golden brown.

Have a nice day! I am off to read my storybook... yeeehaaaa......

Vegeroni Spirals Carbonara


"Your life is a result of the choices you make...
If you don't like your life, it is time to start making better choices..."


Finally, after 2 years , I managed to finish reading I Love You, Stupid by Melur Jelita. Not to say that the story is not interesting, but I don't really have the time to sit and read. Unless I decided to forget about the world and just be in my reading world, then only I think I would be able to finish faster. But that TWO YEARS does not mean 730 days ya. I am not THAT slowcoach! Hahahaha.... Two years here means 2012 and 2013! *wink*

I am relieved I've finised reading that book. Not only it answered most of the questionmarks, but also I don't have to carry a 1.126kg book everywhere I go!

Thank you to Melur Jelita for a book well written. Hmm one question.... What happened to Matt?
