12th General Election : 8 March 2008
These photos are long overdue since I did not update my blog for quite some time.. hehe what I like about elections are the war of posters. But this year seems like not as 'meriah' as the previous years. Wonder why.. hmm.. I took a lot of photos but lots of they are blurred because I took them while moving in the car (my hubby was driving of course ;) ..

Banana and chocolate chip muffin

Yesterday I copied a simple recipe from En. Mat Gebu. The muffins looked so tempting and I guess my sons must love it since they like banana and choc.
However, I don't have a muffin pan/cup or the right 'tools'. After work, we went shopping for a muffin pan but when we got home I found out that it was too large for my oven!
As the last resort, I pour the muffin mix into the cake's mould and here it is. Looks flat like a pie but as tasty as can be hehehehe..
Muffin recipe :
Bahan A :-)
2 cawan tepung gandum*
1 camca besar baking powder*
1 camca teh soda bicarbonate*
1/2 camca teh garam *
(*digaul rata dan ayak)
3/4 cawan chocolate chip
Bahan B :-)
300 g pisang yang siap dilecek
113 g mentega, dicairkan
1/4 cawan susu segar
2 biji telur gred A
1/2 cawan gula perang (brown sugar) (saya kurangkan lg dr sukatan ni sbb taknak manis sgt)
1 camca teh esen vanilla
Cara membuatnya :-)
Panaskan oven pada suhu 175C.
Alas muffin mould dengan paper cup. Ketepikan.
Satukan bahan2 A dalam satu bekas. Gaul rata. Ketepikan sebentar;
Satukan semua bahan B dan kacau dengan wisk hingga semua sebati dan bergaul mesra.
Tuang ke dalam adunan A dan gaul dengan pantas menggunakan senduk atau spatula. Sudukan 3/4 penuh adunan ke dalam paper cup tadi dan bakar 15 - 20 minit atau hingga masak. Begantung pada keadaan oven masing2.
Sejukkan atas jaringan sepenuhnya sebelum dihidangkan. Selamat mencuba!!!

Underwater adventure :

JM Bariani House Restaurant @ Tesco Ampang

Restoran pilihan bernas

The interior

Saturday special : Beriani gam kambing (mutton) @ RM12.00

Comes with curry and 'acar buah' - very nice

Beriani daging (beef beriani) @ RM9.00. 2 pieces of beef is hidden under the rice.

Sirap bandung @ RM3.50 per glass (ice cream soda added) . We ordered 3 glasses. But could only drink 2 half glasses. One glasses was untouched because we're not used to bandung with ice cream soda. (Thot the price was RM1.60 per glass when we looked at the menu. hmm maybe next time should check again the menu and order other drinks)
