Feel Good Song

Hi guys... This is going to be a super short post. I'm not in the mood to talk. But I get this song played over and over again in my head. So I guess I'd better share it just to get it off my head. Enjoy it folks!

Lulling Wind

It's been raining on and off all morning. No wonder one might become sleepy again even though just woken up from sleep. Before the temptation to crawl back into bed overwhelm me, I better do some work first or else I'm going to end up like this one here! 

Do not disturb!

Okay, stay open my eyes... 

Let me finish up the birthday menu on my dad's birthday last week. It would not be complete without a birthday cake. But I haven't made one on that day though so I compensated it the day after. According to my sister, it was the moistest cake I've ever made. It should be or else I'm pressed to make another!

From Middle East with Love

Hi, it's me! ^_^

Finally I'm able to make an appearance on the site after M.I.A last week. You might think that I was lazying around the house *because of the disappearance act* but that's not it. Actually, last week was pretty hectic in the house. My sister was home for college break and also there was my dad's birthday on Monday. Naturally, we put together a little feast to celebrate. Ever since my dad had his first taste of Nasi Maqlubah or better known as Arab Rice, he specifically requested the dish to be made on special day such as this.

With a middle eastern dish on the menu, we had to do the prepping early on or else the rice could not be serve on time for lunch. It wasn't hard to cook the rice at all. You just need to the cooking ahead than usual for there are a few deep frying to do before mixing it all together.

I Love My Pockets!

Good morning! It's bright and sunny here, hopefully until the evening. The past few days were a bit cold and damp so this change of weather is very welcome! And this glorious day calls for a glorious breakfast. Are you up for it? ^_^

Popcorn Hour

What's your favorite sports-related movie?

I did a little bit of searching and ended up with a couple of movies that were really inspiring and seriously good. So lets watch one tonight okay. It's called Forever Strong, starred by Sean Faris as the leading actor.  The movie was about a reckless rugby player whose perspective on life changed drastically after joining a rival rugby team.

His inability to trust others, especially adults make things difficult for him. Not to mention the set of rules being imposed in this new team. It makes sense however since everything he knew about rugby was taught by his father; which weren't very good examples. His so-called friends also only one step closer to self-destruction. The turn of event that we called fate was actually doing good for him. Though he'll lose his former friends, he gains back respect for himself, from his family and his team.

Kitchen Invaders 5: Steam It

I begged my sister to make the cake. Really. It was so good by itself alone! Soft and moist, it tasted so much better the next day. I totally recommend it to chocolate lovers. The first time it was made, I haven't managed to get a decent picture. This time around, I forgot to photograph the whole cake! Guess you'll have to contain with the last slice... ^_^

Between Viking, Homeless Guy & Stalker

Hi, I'm back again today! Forgot about Wordless Wednesday, I just feel like talking right now. Let start with the weekend. While a big event happened somewhere in KL, I was swamped with books *sort of* courtesy of my sisters. They both went to the PWTC book fair and decided that I NEEDED a pile of new books to read! Thanks to them, I have a months supply of books. Not that was a bad thing mind you. 

Then on Monday morning, I got up-close and personal with scones. I would say, it was some record I've made. Five batches of scones to bake and packed. By the time it was done, I was covered with flour! But it was really satisfying, having made something that was requested over and over again because they really like it was worth the effort. Thanks for the request girls and of course to my dear sisters also for helping me!

Okay, so the last book I've reviewed here was Beautiful Dreamer by Elizabeth Lowell. It's not that I haven't read anything... Just that I'm couldn't put my thoughts together into a decent review. Lucky me, in between baking session I always found some time to kill and filled it with reading. Want to know what I'm reading lately?
