Happy Birthday Kak Yati!

On 22.06.2012, I like to wish Happy Birthday to Nor Haryati Ali a.k.a Kak Ti. May Allah bless you always! Always happy and will be loved by others around you.

          Specially for her, I bake a new cake that I have modified and Alhamdulillah They said it taste great! Not too sweet as for my previous recipes. I am glad that she love the cake.Phew~ I know her favorite color was pink, and I made a Custard Layered Cake with bits of Chocolate Chips. Looks very delicious!

          So, this time I like to share with you guys the recipe. It was simple and surely you can do it too. The important tip for this recipe is to layer the cake white the custard is still hot. Before pouring the custard, grease your 8 inch spring form pan with butter so that the cake will came out easily and will not stick to the pan. To ensure the is no bubble trapped in the custard, you have to press the cake a little bit to the custard. Good luck!

Have you changed your skin?

He bought a really nice tumbler for me from Starbucks last month (I guess) and the stated on the tumbler "CREATE YOUR OWN TUMBLER" with some instruction on it. So, I decided to create new skin for my tumbler and happily can called it my own. Only takes a day to finished up the work. The interesting part is, you can put my name on it. Means that no one can steal it from me for sure unless he/she will take out the tumbler's skin of course. Attention people, let us make something that we can be PROUD of because we MADE it! 

Before the MAKEUP!
I choose to have red poppies as the theme because really it was one of my favourite flower besides hydrangea, peony and ranunculus. See at the layout, it was easy rite? Bet you can do it too with your own creative designs!  Go go, change your tumbler's skin now!


Yeay! What a cute tumbler!

Hello Friday! Hello to June! Happy holiday to all. Actually, most of my office mate are taking their leave today! Well, I don't want to waste my annual leaves yet because I may need them later on. I do love FRIDAY! Short working period although there are so much work to be settle before the audit starting 12 June 2012! I do hate auditing, feels like vomiting blood! The most annoying thing is, every year the university keep on changing all the forms. Crazy! So, here at the office, I have main file in the PC and the hard copy is just to satisfy all the new forms. Really, phew~

I do love the colors from the picture below. I hope I can have that color patone for September! Pray hard! Well, let's move on to hard work and make our dreams came true. InsyaAllah.
