I am sure all of you have heard this saying... WINNING IS NOT EVERYTHING.... To me, it means something... Winning gives me I sound so selfish? Well, that's the truth. But if I were to win, I want to win it fair and square. No cheatings...boleh percaya ke? Hihihi...

Argued with a good friend of mine about the color of this fine granulated sugar from Giant...haha ...mama dengan kawan dia dah tak de kerja lainlah tu... pasal peket gula pun nak bertekak! Muahaha... tak de la, saja mengisi masa lapang....tak gitu, my fren?..... Both of us just can't agree with the colors. I had my own explanation and she had hers. To end this 'arguement'. I've created a poll on the right top corner of MY BLOG. So to all, if it's not that much to ask, I hope you'll take a few seconds of your precious time to cast a vote. Not that there'll be a winner or what, just plain satisfaction to both of us. The poll will be up till this Thursday, approximately a week.

To those who cast a vote (or more) : WE THANK YOU VERY MUCH..
To my opponent, you know who you are.... (muahaha...macam buat pilihanraya pulak!) : ALL THE BEST!


Came across this cake when I accidently landed in this lovely blog called goodtoknow . Fell in love with the look of their Chocolate and Orange Marble Cake and decided to give it a try except, I didn't do the icing which makes my cake looks less scrumptious. But all the same, it's nice.... My thanks to GoodToKnow for sharing this recipe with us.... Allow me to copy and paste the recipe here so that many others can give it a try... thanks...

At the moment, hubby had imposed a new rule on me. I have to log off by 10.30pm and go to bed! Thanks to my culprit BP that's been showing odd readings lately! Before this, I had made that '10.30pm bedtime' rule for Syahmi, but now, I have to follow the same rules and regulations! Hahaha... maybe the idiom...What goes around comes true after all... hahahaha... serves me right!

Let me just post the entry before my curfew time is up! I've tried two recipes today, for lunch but will only post one first for the time being. Thanks to Kak Liza for promoting her Nasi Bukhari the previous day. But I didn't follow her method. Instead I used Kak Noha's simple method of cooking other than plain rice. I love Kak Noha's way as it leaves very little crust. Thanks to Kak Liza for promoting and thanks to Kak Noha for the lovely method.



2 cups Basmathi rice ~ washed
Enough water
Salt to taste
Topside beef ~ sliced thinly and boil till soft
3 shallots ~ sliced
2 garlic ~ sliced
1/2 inch ginger ~ sliced thinly
1 big fresh tomato ~ puréed
2 tablespoons Bukhari powder (I used Faiza)
Cooking oil
1 tablespoon butter

Method :

1. Prepare the rice like how you prepare your plain rice.
2. In a wok, heat cooking oil and add in the butter. When the butter melts, add in all the sliced shallots, garlic and ginger. Sauté until fragrant.
3. Add Bukhari Powder and tomato puree, sauté until it turns oily
4. Add in the water or beef broth. Bring to boil and salt to taste.
5. Pour into the rice when the water starts to bubble.
6. Stir and add in the beef. Let it cook.
7. Serve with pickles and salad.
