Of life & aspiration


Lama pulak tak bersiaran ye(chehhhh).

There were things happening around me but when it's blank, its blank!
I just cannot put words and pictures together...


My shoulder still needs attention, ubat dah makan, urut pun sudah, now i am undergoing physio, my first of six treatments (1/6). I will share the outcome in other entries...

Bila dah injured, tangan kanan pulak tu, banyak kerja yang terbantut.

Tension jugak.... tapi bila rasa macam tu, I always tell myself ada orang yang lebih tension & things happen for (or with?) a reason, jadi bawak bawaklah bertenang & bersabar che jah

Apart from the normal chores, I missed my sewing and baking. Stopped my sewing completely and occasionally bake only those '...use mixer & pour...' stuff.

My two sons decided to "burn-the-stove" (read: cook) few days ago.
Both were in the kitchen as one was chicken and the other,lamb.....

My 'montel' chicken guy.......

...his simple ala-K.F.C minus coleslaw/mash potato

His 'aspiration' ...........
from the eyes of his brother, the lamb-fanatic

The 'cikeding' lamb-fanatic who said..

"There comes a time when a woman needs to stop thinking about her looks and focus her energies on raising her children. This time comes at the moment of conception. A child needs a role model, not a supermodel."

Cotton Cheese Cake

I've had this in my old keeper for almost 10 years! Imagine that.

This cake is (i think) almost similar to some other cheesecakes that carry different names and may also differ slightly in the way it was prepared. It is very soft and not sweet.

(source: Mrs Lee of Kelantan)

A) 220 ml UHT milk ( i use dutchlady fullcream milk)
250 gm cream cheese, cubed
90 gm butter
1/2 tsp vanila/lemon zest

B) 20 gm cornflour } sift
40 gm pau flour (i used normal rose flour) }

C) 140 gm castor sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
6 egg white

D) 6 egg yolk - lightly beaten


  • Dissolve creamcheese and milk in double boil. When smooth (ie all cheese melt), add in butter and vanila. Leave aside to cool slightly.
  • Beat C till fluffy (not stiff). Add in dissolved cheese mixture. U can fold using hand or cake mixer at low speed.
  • Add in egg yolk.
  • Fold in sifted flour
  • Steam bake @ 160 C for 1 hour. I used 23 cm loose bottom cake pan, lightly greased.

When done, remove from cake pan and let cool completely. You can also glaze the top of cake or decorate anyway you like, but i prefer mine as it is.

maybe some sifu can tell me why my cake cracked up there?

Kalau tergolek pun ala ala manja gitu

Lari lari lawan lawan, masih segak bergaya

Jalan lenggang kangkung....tup tup

Dah pakai baju baru.....best kan?

Taklah macam kita, bila nak travel

Ya, in less than 2 hours, I'll be travelling down south again.....

Pastilah dengan terhegeh hegehnya bawak bag.....

Thank you friends for your kind words....we may have not met but I know I have many out there.

To sum my 'gloomy-ness':

We visited a close relative who was hospitalised .......
alhamdulillah, he pulled thru from ICU--->HDU---->normal ward--->home.
His strong will obviously put some of us to shame.

Get well fast!

My update:

My very first try sometime last week....after confiding with sifu. Big TQ mamafami for sharing your ideas & expertise. Allow me to just C&P ye.
Even though I only made the cookies & a store-bought fondant, I am happy with the outcome.
I need more practice and patience to produce a better looking fondant cookies.

My son & friends say sedap; cookies very sedap, fondant not very very sweet=niceee

Nak cuba buat fondant sendiri?? Tunggulah bila urat rajin semua kembangggg

My first try.........
orange white fondant with everything anything motives


Ingredients :

250 g margarine
140g castor sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 410g cookies flour

Method :

1. Sieve flour and baking powder. Set aside.
2. Cream margarine and sugar. Add in egg yolks one at a time. Add in vanilla essence. Continue beating.
3. Add sifted dry ingredients till a soft dough is formed.
4. Keep in the fridge for 30 minutes.
5.. Roll to the thickness desired. Cut using a cookie cutter. Arrange on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
6. Bake in a preheated oven till golden brown. I used fan-oven at 150 C for 30 minutes.
7. Leave to cool completely before decorating with fondant or royal icing.

Sekadar hiasan......

It's been a while that i posted anything....

Words just don't come by....

Imagination just gone wild......

I'm just staring the empty.....empty.....empty....

Our hopes, desires and ambitions are powerful forces existing within us for the shaping of the future. They are the generating forces that create the future. To lose hope or give up one's goals because of the setbacks of the moment is to diminish one's own life potential. Hopes, dreams, faith and a sense of mission enable us to open up our lives.

I've a lot to do, thinking, planning & executing tapi otak macam kosong.

Insyallah, sikit hari lagi boleh charge balik kot.....
