Cuppiecake...prinsezz version

For dad's birthday, i decided to break my baking virginity. Hahahahahaha~
Novice chef dookikie

This is embarassing but i hve this handwritten cookbook which i copied recipes from mags, websties and cooking shows. but i had not tried anything that was copied. i just believe that one day it will come to good use.

Come to think of it... i did cook something from the book. its called "Shiitake spinach udon" which i'm a pro in cooking now. Can improvise and make up other types of udon. *pats self on the back*

Well, yesterday was the day that the cookbook came to good use coz when i decided to do something for dad for his birthday, i browsed through the book to find something simple to cook and i found this...

Its called...

I wanted to make it a surprise coz manatau tak jadi right? Then dad will laugh till his flase teeth all drop off. Hahahhaha~ He always said that I only know how to mess up the kitchen but never made anything edible. T___T So mean ok? He saw me fail making Li Shan's "Rocky Road Crunch Bars" and said damn loudly: "I told you not to do already lah..." So bad right? another reason i wanna bake is coz i wanna prove that i can make something right not like what he always said. I can do it!!! so i bought the ingredients secretly and didn't tell anyone about it. Erm~~~ except for sinren.

Anyways, here are the ingredients. Its super easy so you guys can copy down the recipe and try it out. an idiot in kitchen like me can do it, so can you!!!

Muffin mix
No experience in buying whatever mix so just grabbed the first muffin mix i saw. Anybody knows what brands are better?
I used half of the mix coz I was afraid that I made too many cupcakes and if they turned out like shit then it would be wasted.

60g of unsalted butter

Two eggs

Fresh milk

Erm... only needed 3 tablespoons. I don't know if that makes any difference but I just dunk it in.

Cocoa powder

Once I heard popo said that VAn Houten is the best cocoa powder. So I bought it. Slightly more expensive than the other one I saw.

Use only 2 tablespoons and mix with warm water.

Chocolate Chips

First, preheat the oven at 170 celcius for 15 minutes

Then, melt the butter like this...


Add butter, eggs, milk to the muffin mix. The fold till it settles. Lastly put in the chocolate chips and cocoa powder and stir. Then it will look like the photo above.

Grease the cupcake mould

Pour the muffin mix into the mould

Put it in the oven, bake for 20 minutes at 200 celcius

Praying hard that the cupcakes come out nice

Yum yum yum

Unfortunately, the first batch was a failure. My oven had some problems so I couldn't control and fix the right temperature. Sigh~ gotta go bring it to the repair shop soon. Oh ya, I also bake it a little too long. 15 minutes should be sufficient.

Ee yer~~~

Damn sad ok? I felt devastated coz i thought what dad said was true. But then I tried one of it and it tasted damn good. it was just that the top was burned. The top tasted horrid.

So I tried the second batch, bake it at 150 celcius for only 10 minutes.




Praying really really hard

The nice side

The 'Chao Ta' (burnt) side


i cut off the burned top of the first batch cupcakes and put colourful sugar rice on top:
Daddy!!!

Tada!

I know its not that nice looking but don't judge a book by its cover. Its tasty ok?

Happy!

After baking, I felt really exhausted. I guess that's what people said about being tired but happy and satisfied. i was dead tired coz i sacrifice my sleep for this (yes, i need to take a nap. cannot is it?). But i was happy and satisfied coz i've made it!!! i bake something with success and it tasted good. now i can tell my dad "blueks old man!!!" Hahahahahaah~


I hate cleaning after cooking or working in the kitchen...

That's why I won't cook that often. I'm gonna get me a maid to clean up after I cook next time. (When I got the $$$ lah...) I don't care if the maid could cook. Just clean after me can d. You hear sinren liow? You want me as your wife better hire a maid. Hahahahaah~


But getting good responses from them was enough to cover up the hard work.

He said: "Good..."

And its all that matters... ^V^

She said: "Not too sweet...my favourite"

I said:"Yay to me!"

Haha~

We had the cupcakes at 0000 which was already dad's birthday and went to sleep after that. Hahaha~ Like pigs la our family. Then, mum and I bought him a gift which was a belt this afternoon. At night, we had angel hair bolognaise which was cooked by mum and I helped a little bit. (I put the pasta into the pot...hahahaah~)

Well, HAPPY 56TH BIRTHDAY DAD... He doesn't read this but I'll force him to read this line anyways. And to Joan Low, which I think did read my blog... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU TOO. I don't know how old you are coz you won't tell me. What type of cousin is that???? T___T

Ok lah... Tat's all for today.

Tata...

Note: This was posted on 26-06-08...but now only came out coz i clicked on some wrong buttons. Sorry yer...

New Crib in KL

Hello~
Like I said, I went to KL on last Saturday and Sunday with mum and dad. Didn't do much. Just moved some ofmy stuff into the new place I'll be staying in this sem. Lolz~ I stay at three different place for my three years of uni.
Went to eat at a few food courts. (apparently dad wanna try out food at KL's food courts) Then went shopping at IKEA and Cineleisure and that's all. Oh yeah. Went to church also lah...
Here are some photos of the new place. Didn't take many photos coz its still in a bit mess. Will take more photos once everything is settled.
This is where we sleep


Cupboard area

Mine is not exactly a cupboard. But I don't know what to call it. Its like a five tier storaga drawer. I will be sharing the shared cupboard with my other room mate. Hopefully all our clothes can git in. Haha~

My other roommate's spot

I'm thinking bout what to do with the wires coz its quite messy this way. Anybody has any suggestions?

The dresser filled with Jane's stuff

A note to those who will be moving in with anyone. Be the first to move in coz you can be the first to place your stuff and you can put it anywhere you like. The later you move in, the least space and priority you have. Unless you are moving in with your bf its a different story coz then you are the queen. Wahahahahahaha~

I rather live alone than to have roommates but then due to convenience, its better to have roommates than none.

I love my storage drawer coz its pink and black

Planning to buy more pink, black and white furniture. After graduating, all these will be in my room. Then it can be a beautiful pink, black and white prinsezz room like how I wanted it to be.

My mattress

Mama covered it with this ugly bedsheet so that dusts won't dirty the nicer looking bedsheet underneath. Like cover dead people pulak. HAHAHAHAHA~


We stayed over for a night at the new place coz Auntie Michelle was not home so we could not stay over at her house and godma's place is too far from church. The new room's pretty cooling at night. Its like having natural aircon. Maybe the weather was cooling lah. Wonder around July will it be still this cooling? (Did you know *sounding like the National Geographic fella again* that July is the hottest month in Malaysia?)

Well, that's all bout the new place. Not much about it right? But will take more photos soon. Oh yeah~ from our balcony, we could see Genting Highlands. Like for real ok? But that is if the sky is clear and the weather is nice lah. Not the whole GEnting ok? Stupid Paulie asked if I could see people on the roller coaster. wth??? Hahahahahahahaha~ Can only see the lights.... (-___-)lll

Nothing much bout KL coz Sinren was holding my bag the whole time and I didn't bother to ask him to hand me the camera. Plus KL only mah... Takkan tak pernah tengok right? I just went IKEA and Cineleisure. I go Cineleisure so often I think you guys saw too much photos of the place d right? And IKEA...what is there to take right? Summore I was having a severe migrane on Saturday night. No strength to take photos.

Alright, that's all for today. See you guys in the next post.

Chaoz~~~

p/s: Its dad's birthday tomorrow!!!

Met up with Miss Junie Pig

Hello~

I got punished for using dad's phone to call Sinren. Hehe~ I can't go online more than 2 hours. T___T There's no freedom at home. Why like this??? Dah la the line so slow. Upload one photo need to take up 5 minutes. If I had 20 photos, you count la how long I will take. I rather she ground me. Not that I go out also. Wahahahhah~ So I don't mind. Don't la cut down my online's time. T____T But then again, when mama's working, I online how long also she doesn't know right? Wakakakaka~

Anyways, last week was my ex-classmate June's birthday. I sms-ed her and she asked me out. I haven't seen her for about 3 years ok? After she left to MHS (Melaka High School) for form 6, I had not seen her since. Sigh~ other than the gang, I hardly met up with anyone from high school. Why like this you tell me??? Those from IJC who reads my blog, please call me out lah... I really wanna meet up with you all.

I was quite broke coz in Melaka dad doesn't give me allowance. For what right? I'm at home the whole time. Give money to spend where? But then the night before going out, I left a note on dad's wallet...
translate: Dad, I'm going out tomorrow so I need money. I have none left

Haha~ I have a normal relationship with my dad. It just that he slept d. So I left the note so that when he wakes up, he sees it and give me some sedekah. Hahaahahah~

June also asked Deepa out. So Deepa came to my house and I drove us there. We met up at Mahkota Parade's SEcret Recipe. I had been craving for cakes so I asked June to meet us there.


No photo of myself coz I forgot to take it (-____-)lll

The food we had

I had the Oreo Milkshake and BBQ chicken with rice. The milkshake was heavenly like how Li Shan said it was. Mr Sinren liow who knows how to make it still doesn't make it for me. (\_/)=3 The BBQ chicken with rice was nothing special lah... Like normal western food shop also got only.
I craved for cakes but didn't have any. Hehe~

Pics with Junie, the pig:

Deeps and June


The two pigs

I chose this blur one coz the one with flash made me look super ugly. That's why I hate flash. Bleh~~~

After lunch she left coz she had to bring her sisters and cousins to zoo. Hahaha~ Should have call me also right? I wanna go zoo so much. Sigh~~~~ Never mind lah... We can still meet up next time in Melaka or KL. Kan she drove to uni right? Can come and find me one mah...

I used to have a crush on this guy and people made fun of me for it. Coz it was like I had a crush on him after meeting him once and he said one sentence of words to me. June was one of them. But now he's her bf. Damn shy right? (-///-) Summore she still makes fun of me. Yer... damn paiseh ok?

Ok lah... enough of shy shy. A trip to a mall is never complete without buying things. Here are what I bought (I should stop the habit of making sure that I buy something everytime I hit the mall -___-):

I bought this bow clip coz its in fashion right now. Everybody is into the Gossip Girl satin bow thing. This bow could pass as a satin bow right? I mean its looks like right? Popteen also said that bow are in right now. So I decided to buy it right away when I saw it.

But then there is something wrong with it. A small flaw. Can you see it? Lemme point it out for you...

Aiyo~~~ its cheap so what do you expect right? I don't think people can see that small thing right? Plus its the only one left so I gotta have it.

How cheap it was...
In case you guys wanna know, I bought it at Hot Market. The place to get damn cheap stuff. But then not all things are as nice as the bow. You gotta dig up the things and go row by row to search for nice things. Here's where I bought my whole lotsa earrings collection. But then now they don't sell earrings anymore. Wonder why...

Look a bit lala if I clip it on the side of my head but if its for some dinner or some special event quite ok right? Somebody at church is getting married soon so this could come handy. Hahahaha~ Think so early for what? The wedding's on November.

Actually, I intended to buy this clip so that when I tie my hair up half it'll look nice.
But then can't see the bow coz my hair's still too short. Sigh~

How I look if I tie my hair up a bit

Aiyo~ I smile senget again. Must learn to control the smile lah. Damn ugly!!!

Finally found Popteen in Melaka!!! Damn difficult to buy ok? Last time I could get it from MP but then I couldn't find it. I think somebody bought it or they don't wanna sell anymore coz nobody buys it except for me. T___T Tesco also don't have. Finally found it in a corner bookstore at Giant. Aiyoyo~~~ Please continue selling lah... Or else I don't know where to get it already.

The cover was Boa. Isk~ I don't like her. Coz she's acting all diva. Not say very 'geng' also. Always lip sync. Then when people interview her nicely, she gives her trademark "blackface". Bleh~~~ Sorry lah neney. I know you like her but she's really damn not likeable.

But I still bought it coz this month is all about...
Spring Clothes

I know, i know... spring is over but then in Malaysia, spring clothing could be worn all year round right? So can take some notes on how to wear/layer my clothes.

I LOVE POPTEEN!!!

Anyways, I forgot to tell earlier on, Deepa and I watched this after June left...
It was a typical chick flick so it was pretty typical. But I love chick flick. I have dozens of chick flick dvd in my dvd collection. I love to laugh at dizzy jokes then cry at the touching parts.

Patrick Dempsey's not that good looking like how everyone is gaga-ing about. Maybe he's not my type. He's like damn old looking. Saw him in Enchanted already thought that he's not so good looking but my friends all said he's damn good looking. The "man" type of good looking. Got meh???

After watching Made of Honour (and many other movies about marriage), I really wanna get married. Haaahahahah~ What you waiting for Sinren Liow? Got people "han ka" (dying to get married). Who's gonna be my maid of honour? Alex Ang already booked the place. Hahahahahah~ Imagine him runnning around with my wedding shopping. Hahahahaha~ And buying lingerie for the first night. Wakakakakakakakaka~

I collect all my movie tickets

I love GSC Melaka. Their ticket price is cheaper than MBO. But then they show crap movies and only four movies coz there's only four cinemas in it. But then its Friday and the ticket price is RM6. Damn good right? I wanted to use my uni card coz with it I only need to pay RM5. But Deepa didn't allow me to. (-___-)

Ok... that's all for today. Will post up the KL photos tomorrow. I saw other blogs and saw the photos of Nuffnang Wild 'Live' Blogging. T____T Looks like damn fun. So sad... T___T I really wanna go. All thanks to dad who couldn't close his office earlier and get to KL earlier. T____T Mum saw and thought it was such a waste for not attending such fun event T___T Why didn't support me earlier la ma????

Sigh~~~ its over lah... Nvm~~~There's more events to come right?

To end the post, here are some camwhoring photos of myself of course:

Bubbye...
