Everything happens for a reason... that's what I told Syahmi in the car yesterday evening when sending him to his tuition class. I guess, that time I was thinking how grateful I am now that I can drive without much fear.

I had my driving licence since somewhere in the late 1980s. Actually I had asked my parent's permission to learn driving soon as I finsihed my SPM in 1983. When I asked abah, abah told me to ask my mom. When I turned to my mom, she said, go ask your dad. So I said to myself... just forget it. After all, I am not the kind that likes to go out of the house, so what's the use of having a driving licence.... hahaha... doesn't that sound something like the Fox and The Sour Grape story! It's only until I've finished college that my parents had offered me to get my driving licence and I didn't fail them. I got through in my first test! And what's more, that day, when it was my turn, I was actually doing a solo performance! Normally there'll be three students to be tested at one time. The slope, the parking and the three point turn. But when it was my turn, I was the only one driving and imagine, all the eyes were on the car with me on the wheels! Luckily all went well and wallah... I passed!!! After I got my licence, I drove abah's Fiat 124, only for a short while. Why? Because everytime I came back and parked the car in the garage, abah will start inspecting the engine and bla bla bla... That sort of makes me uneasy and scared at the same time. If anything should happen to the car, I don't want to be blamed. ..

After I got married in 1991, hubby had asked me to drive his car, a Proton Saga, without any practise or whatsoever, I took the keys and started the engine. I can still remember the first 5 minutes driving the car... how the car 'hiccupped'! Hahaha.... Driving a Fiat and a Proton is a two different thing. One is under the catagory of heavy weight and the other in the light weight category. That explains the hiccup theory! But I drove hubby's car only for two days and after that, I prefer to go to work by bus, where I can just enjoy the ride while cross stitching! Then came the 10 long years of 'Life Abroad', where we were given personal driver. So my licence is just like how my friends use to call it..'Tanggung Kerajaan'. Hahaha... Well, we must enjoy life while we can, right! Hahaha...

But everything started to change when my parents came to stay with us. I was responsible to send my abah to SMC for his dialysis treament, trice a week. Followed by visits to Serdang Hospital to look after my mom who was admitted for a month. All these things happen all of a sudden which left me no time to think twice whether I can or cannot drive. I just have to go for it and alhamdulillah, Allah Maha Pengasih Maha Penyayang, I am how I am now. Syukur....

Thanks to my'll always be remembered and your service is much appreciated.....

Recipe to share today was something that I made on my birthday. The recipe was taken from Madamme Kacip's Blogspot. Thank you Kacip for the recipe which is much enjoyed by us especially my daughter Fatin.

I didn't realise that I am that courageous! I bravely accepted another challenge from my sifoo Kak Liza . We were chatting on Yahoo Messenger when she asked me if I could bake for her a chocolate cake to be delivered to her son in Shah Alam, as a surprise birthday cake for her daughter Azlina. I have doubt at first, as I have never before successfully decorate a cake with chocolate ganache. But then, I said to myself, if I don't try it now, when will I try it then? And if I don't dare to try, how am I supposed to know that I am capable or not! What's more, I mustn't let all the tips that Ana had kindly taught me, go to waste! On top of that, the cake that Kak Liza requested came from a well known sifoo in baking, non other than RinnChan who took the recipe from a talented lady in baking, Zack aka Mrs Zairul in Japan. As you can read, all the names mentioned above are all BIG names in this baking world. That means, the recipe should be nice, insyaAllah. I will bake another cake for us to taste... when? Don't ask....

Anyway, thanks to....
~ Kak Liza for trusting me with this order
~ Ana, for coaching me with the ganache
~ Zack, for discovering the recipe and sharing it with us
~ Rinn, for promoting the recipe and for making me suffer to see the glossy look of her chocolate cake!

And presenting to almost successful chocolate moist cake with chocolate ganache... hahaha...

To answer Dona's question, here are the recipes for the cupcakes. Actually I baked 3 different flavours for the cupcakes that I posted in the previous entry. Thank you to Shabana, a good friend of mine in Malawi for emailing me this recipe so that I could try it out and share with others. Shabana gave me the Vanilla Cupcake recipe. From there I played around with the recipe to produce another two different flavours just to give more variety.
