I don't know about the tradition here in Peninsular, but we in Borneo practice giving hampers during festive seasons. I mean, from those who doesn't celebrate the festival to those who celebrate it. For example, our Chinese aunties and uncles will send us greetings and Hari Raya hampers during Eid Mubarak and we will send them a basket of cookies and cakes during their CNY. 






















If you're interested in getting Hari Raya hampers for your friends and relatives during this festive season, you can directly contact my sister Naffa at 017 844 4090 or her husband Eddie at 016 807 9972.

I was watching  AFC channel last week and stumbled onto this tv show, Secrets about Meat.  That guy in that show (I dunno his name) was cooking a Scavaschumsh Lamb and it looks easy pitsy and I can remember clearly the step from 1, so I decided to give it a try.  Well, the name is actually not Scavaschumsh but it's something like that,  I swear! Blame AFC website for not updating the recipe in their website. 

Ingredients:
3 pieces of sliced lamb (I used lamb shoulder)
3 large Holland Onions  (chopped)
1 large US potato (sliced)
1 1/2 cup of chicken stock
2 tbs Grind-ed Black pepper
A pinch of White pepper
A pinch of Salt
Fresh Rosemary
3 tbs of Dried parsley, thyme and oregano
A tbs of butter
Olive oil  

1. Marinate the lamb with rosemary, 1 tbs of dried parsley, thyme, oregano, black pepper, white pepper and salt.


2. Sauté the onions with olive oil. Make sure it turns golden brown  as this is essential to caramelize our lamb later.


3. Grease a medium sized oval dish with butter and put  half of sautéed onions at the bottom.



4. Add in the lambs, arrange accordingly and put half of the potato onto it. 


5. Then layer it with the leftover onions and potato, and sprinkle the salt.

6. Pour in the chicken stock and lastly dot the top with butter. 

7. Bake it in the oven for 1 hour 20 minutes at 200 degrees C.

Tadaaaaa, ready to eat. There're even meatballs as side dish. 


Homemade meatball, penat tangan menggentel. 


This dish is really eeeeeeeeeasy and tasty, seriously. Give it a try peeps!

Nasuha turned 1 year 6 months last month and i brought her to the clinic for 18 months a jab. Then she turned to a-tree-in-a-toddler-body, refused to eat and just drink her milk milk milk milk milk milk and plain water. I was worried so i tried to make her meal 'wonderful' just to make her eat again.



Marinate the salmon with salt and pepper, add a teaspoon of olive oil and grill it. Cut an avocado into half and spoon out the isi. Then, shape the rice to a small ball shape, and top it with salmon, avocado and black seeds. Tadaa, ready to be served to that little girl. 



And i made beef lasagna extra cheese for daddy, mommy and grandpa. 


Another story. We, the Sarawakian girls are introduced with kek lapis or kek kukus baking since we're small. I remembered during my childhood, my mom dragged me to the kitchen after Subuh for the whole month of Ramadhan just to help her with raya cake baking. At the age of 9, i already took order from her friends and my first cake delivered to a customer was Orange Cheese Cake. You know, that cheese cake with biscuit based at the bottom... 100% all done by me ^_____^

So, i decided to introduce my girl into baking too. And there you go, she was helping me with the bread butter pudding. Recipe is from Aida. She lovessss it but of course the kitchen turned veryyyy messy and mama turned into hulk when doing the clean up.  





I know, i love you too. 


And this was yesterday, she helped me with chocolate muffins. I undressed her because this is chocolate we're talking about. She supposed to sprinkle the choc chip to the muffin top, but she ate (most of) them instead!  



I'll be off to KK this Friday for a vacation and will directly fly to Kuching hometown for election. 

Yayyy, let's vote people! Ini kali lah. =)

Ever since a colleague of mine introduced me to sambal minang, i've been a big fan of chilies. I borong a few kilos of chilies whenever we drop by at market. And this sambal minang tastes good with everything. I even ate it with banana for breakfast!!


Sign of aging, no?

Hi Cheesecake,

It has been a long time since our break up. I've been missing you so much but i couldn't betray my new boyfriend named healthy diet. Now you make a comeback with horlicks in each layer so i decide to cheat on him. Please be good to me by finding the right way out after you enter my mouth. Do not leave any trace that could contribute to my weight gain and waist line. Let's just keep this affair between us.

Yours truly,
Ex lover who still loves you.

I think Zalora.com is stalking on me.
I’ve been eyeing on this one heels recently. 
READ: browse only (few times), not proceed to shopping cart yet.
Out of sudden, a mail popped up in my mailbox.

We noticed that you browsed through several of our best-sellers and thought you might have liked them.

 Oh yeah, since you are kind enough to keep it for me, I would feel guilty if I did not purchase this pairs.

My besties have these craziness over food craving. 

It was all started with Azza's post in instagram showing off her pusuk leyak. For those who doesn't know, it is actually an ikan bilis halia, and it is a confinement food, eaten by a women after giving birth. Back to the story. Azza instagramed her pusuk leyak, Aida and Baun saw that and started making their own version! Gigihhhh la masing-masing!






 I just sat back and ate mine, made by my brother in law for my sister who is still in pantang. You can see the different; -food made by a male and female chef. Girls win! LOL. 



People connect through food, no?
