okay seriously - i don't like this. this is bad.

stop, please. i really like you, i do. in a way, more than some other. 
but should we do this? i mean, it's like we are two people struggling to prove the same thing to one another while all it really is and (maybe) have always been is just a way for us to avoid admitting the much lighted upon obviousness and the inevitable. 

i don't like it. and yes, i strongly feel that i am still waaa......y too far from becoming a person who can handle another's. 

there'll be hearts. pieces of it.

What, seriously? No one cares that there’s a cobra in there?

the title above is my one of my favorite line by Morgan Grimes in Chuck season 4. and guess what, by the way season 4 ended, i'm guessing Morgan is about to get all masculine, tall, strong man which probably means Alex, daughter of John Casey will stay around as the faithful girlfriend:) btw, they are my fav couple after the title character & his wife (but since they are married now we really need to find another couple to watch their progress all the same keep hoping they'll end up changing 'I do's as well).

i love season 4. perfectly-choreographed fights, beautiful sceneries from all over the world (idk if they are real or comp trick, but i personally like Loire Valley, French), FUNNY LINES and delightful ending. beautiful wedding gown Sarah, btw.

as usual, can't wait for the next season. which will be season 5!;)

car key oh car key. why art thou inside?

at home, warm up the engine...suddenly, car was locked from the inside...the engine was running...the alarm thing's battery was out...went to fix the thing...almost run into a huge MISC lorry (ps: change the signal lamp at the back please. they were dead)...running like mad to get the alarm fix...the first shop, the lady didn't have any idea what she was dealing with...had to go to a 2nd shop...got the thing fixed...rushed home at 100km/h...didn't work, the lock didn't budge...waited for super bro-in-law...one thin copper wire later, voila!

morale: don't ever think u can go anywhere without ur mom's blessings;)

credit goes to: my brother (whose car key stuck inside the car whilst he was not even around - the misfortune was caused by me & my sister. sorry bro!), Sad and my sis' bf Ayie. the three of them gave us the same trick to open the car's door = removed the rubber lining between the window and the driver's side door of the car. a trick which we evidently didn't use but thanks. it's the enthusiasm that counts:)

steamed custard cake

me and cooking are like, earphone and roses. they don't go together. just simply don't.

but one day, after browsing through hundreds of recipes in teacher Hawa's blog, i decided that i can make one lousy cake. i mean, how hard can a cake be? (cakap besar di situ)

and so today, armed with all the ingredients i bought yesterday at TMC, at approximately 9.00am, i started my journey from a girl (who doesn't know how to cook AT ALL) to a semi-woman (who knows how to bake now^^).

(c & p the recipes from teacher Hawa's blog. tq soooooo....... much! i luv u;))

  • 125 gram mentega
  • 1/3 cawan gula halus @ gula kastor
  • 1 biji telur gred A
  • 3/4 cawan tepung naik sendiri (self raising flour)
  • 1/2 cawan tepung kastard
  • 1/2 camca teh esen vanilla

  • 1 camca besar tepung kastard
  • 1 camca besar gula kastor
  • 2/3 cawan susu segar
  • 15 gram mentega (kurang lebih 1 camca teh)
  • 2 camca teh esen vanilla


1. UNTUK KASTARD :- Satukan semua bahan untuk kastard kecuali mentega dan esen vanilla. Kacau rata dengan whisk dan masak dengan api perlahan sambil terus dikacau hingga pekat. Padam api, tambah mentega dan esen vanilla, kacau rata dan biar sejuk. Ketepikan.
2. Panaskan oven pada suhu 175C, lenser tin bulat saiz 7 inci. Ketepikan.
3. Putar mentega dengan gula halus hingga berkrim, masuk telur dan putar hingga kembang. Tambah esen vanilla. Perlahankan kelajuan, masukkan tepung naik sediri + tepung kastard sedikit demi sedikit hingga habis. Gaul rata.
4. Masukkan 1/2 adunan ke dalam bekas yang telah disediakan, ratakan dan buat sedikit lubang ditengah2nya. Tuang kastard, ratakan dan tutup dengan baki adunan, ratakan dan bakar selama 30 minit atau hingga masak. <- saya kukus 
5. Sejukkan sebelum dihidangkan. Jika suka boleh ayak gula aising atas permukaan kek sebagai penyeri...Selamat mencuba!!!

in the 'loyang' (container)

tadaaaahh....... but it's very fragile. can't hold its shape thus the misshapen 'blob' on the plate...:(

anyway, my Ma and Ayah gave thumbs up so i feel a little relaxed at the very fragile steamed cake. Ma even said i can bake one during our coming Hari Raya Aidilfitri. wuuhuuu....that's a big honor. thanks Ma;)

cooking is fun. never thought i'd say that one day. 

(tecnically, what i did was baking but it fell in the same category right? hihi)
