Cameron Trip: Mountain Strawberry Farm



As-Salam,


After we had filled our tummy with nice and sweet foods, the next mission would be hunting vegetables for our dinner tonight. Earlier on our way up the hill to BOH Tea plantation, Intan saw junction to a strawberry farm. We decided to go there after the meals. The strawberry farm was great! The most attractive thing about the place was the worker there was extra extra friendly (they even asked weather all of us are single but just answered we aren't). They willingly helped you to snap thousands of your crazy picture with giant size strawberries and tomatoes. I did participate because I found it hilarious and want to keep it as one of the memories.


Besides picking your own strawberries, you may also pick up other vegetable from the farm such as carrots, salads, tomatoes tamarillos and cabbage. Note that they also have their cactus garden but didn't managed to visit. I wonder why.



The price of strawberries was RM5.00/100g and RM45/1kg (correct if I'm wrong). Tell you a secret, if you don't mind about you strawberries size, please buy them from the night market or at Kea Farm. You can get much cheaper prize at RM20/kg. But, if you mind about the size, pick them yourself because it is more worth it. 

Strawberries picked by Anas.
The most ugly cake ever made. Strawberries from Kea Farm. Didn't have the same size. 
Solutions for the strawberries - Bake pavlovas! Yums!

Good Bye to Delicious Ice Creams!



As-Salam,

Black Rice Ice Cream
Salam Jumaat semua. I think this week was the hardest week of all. Well, from the picture you may see how good the ice-cream looks like. People, introducing ice-creams made from red and black rice. Alhamdulillah, it was a success but unfortunately, I was told this will need to stop and I was assign to another project for making break first cereal. Honestly I knew very well this was coming. It always has been this way. Belum sempat habis bikin product gempak, mesti tukar, tukar, tukar. Hei, bila nak maju ini macam people. YOU MAKE ME SICK! Nevermind, atleast now I know how to make good and healthy ice-cream. Esok di rumah boleh bikin ais krim sendiri. No need to buy from supermarket. Same goes to the break first cereal in the future maybe :)

Luncheon with Fiancé at The Bird Fish Curry Head Restaurant


As- Salam,

This happens before puasa. My Fiancé and I were looking for a great place for lunch. At that moment actually I was craving to have double cheese Nan with chicken tandoori. I still didn’t have those yet until now. SEDIH! So, we are at Kota Damansara after watching Man of Steel (honestly the movie was to boring I almost fell asleep at the peak of the story) to get some food. After the unsuccessful search of nan bread, my fiancé found a really nice restaurant with awesome ambiance! Let’s check out the place.





          Nice place right! I did also met the owner of the restaurant. He was such friendly person and welcomed us warmly. He told us occasion such as business meetings, parties and even weddings can be held here at the restaurant. They also have a karaoke place set too! Last Ramadhan, they also had breakfast buffet promotions for RM39.90. Currently the restaurant has 3 outlets and the latest was in Publica Shopping Centre, Solaris Dutamas. They serves Asian Fusion Food and of course it was delicious. They will be featured soon at Jalan-jalan Cari Makan, TV3 for promoting the new outlet and food at Publica. This was the food ordered by Fiancé. Loads and too full to finished them. I really love the lemon chicken and the tofu! SEDAP! Thanks fiancé for the food. I did enjoy them truly!



                                  
          To those who like to try the food. These are the address. Have a nice meal and enjoy the food people! Thanks for stopping by and reading through the blog post!

Recipe: Biskut Cornflakes Madu



As Salam,

Selang beberapa hari lagi tiba bulan Syawal. Bagaimana dengan persiapan raya korang tahun ini? Mestilah meriahkan. Memang sudah lama tidak update blog. Memang sibuk sikit sejak kebelakangan ini. Maklumlah, dengan persiapan wedding dan tidak lupa juga projek product development di office. Buat produk masa bulan puasa memang mencabar sebab tak boleh rasa sedap atau tidak makanan yang disediakan.

          Tahun ini, ade juga cuba-cuba buat kuih baru untuk lebaran. Ialah, setiap tahun pun biskut chocolate chips, maka tahun ini bertambah biskut yang ada, contohnya biskut sarang semut, biskut cranberry oat dan biskut cornflakes madu. Semua biskut ini memang firstime buat dan biskut cornflakes madu was a special request from fiancée.

          Resepi di ambil daripada internet. Saya rasa butter daripada resepi asal perlu dikurangkan daripada 250g kepada 200g mesti lagi sedap rasanya. Saya gunakan Nestle Cornflakes sebab tebal sikit berbanding Kellogs atau yang dijual di kedai bakeri. Moh kite tengok resepinya.



Resepi Biskut Cornflakes Madu
Bahan-bahan:
200g Buttercup
I kotak besar Nestle Cornflakes
1 ½ cup Madu
1 cup Gula Castor

Cara-cara:
1)      Cairkan butter dan madu di dalam kuali dengan api yang perlahan
2)     Setelah cair, masukkan gula dan kacau hingga cair
3)     Semasa masih panas, tuang campuran madu di dalam cornflakes (dalam mangkuk besi / tahan suhu panas) dan kacau sehingga madu menyaluti semua cornflakes.
4)     Masukkan cornflakes bersalut di dalam paper cup
5)     Untuk lebih rangup, bakar cornflakes madu pada suhu 130°C selama 7-10 minit.

Farewell Party at Pakistani Cuisine - Asif Beriani Restaurant



Hello,

Yesterday is the last working day for Mansor at our department. Sedih? Sedih tak? Sikit je. Mansor, lepas pindah tempat kerja baru ini, saya rasa semakin berasap la Innova kan. Maklumlah yang lain semua memang heavy smoker. OWH MY GOODNESS! Sentap! Perasaannya lebih teruk daripada musim jerebu di luar tatkala ini. Harap tidak la saya terpingsan-pingsan nanti. Huhu.

          Kami satu department semalam feeling-feeling sambut farewell Mansor dan Ayu di Restoran Beriani Asif. Yup, this is my first time being there. I think it is not that far from the office. About 15 minute by walking. If there were no guidance from En. Sobri or En. Mohd Noor, I am sure we could not find the place. 

At the entrance.
Taking pictures while waiting the meal. Highlights: I do think Kak Emy (in red blouse) looks slimmer from the last meeting. 
          The meal was absolutely remarkable. It is delicious and during the lunch period it is packs with people. I manage to take some picture of the food. Firstly, I tried their mango lassi and it was decious as if I am eating a fresh mango. Not kidding there. Then came the beriani rice made from 100% basmathi rice which is claimed to be good for your health has a really fluffy texture! Suka suka suka! The side dishes was even tastier - Chicken Masala, Lamb Shank, Grilled Lamb and Cucumber Salad. I didn't taste the chicken Masala. But the lamb shank was superb. The lamb was cooked perfectly and so tender! The grilled lamb was good too!

The food from the restaurant! Looks yummy!
Star of the day. I'm wishing all the best for both of them. May new place will gives them more joy and happiness!

Because of the stamped of expiry date on the food label horrors me bit and some fast action needed to prevent any food wastage. At the time I have cream cheese, biscuits and dry apricots to work with. Yes, I think of cheesecake is the best way! Yums~

A slice of apricot cheesecake
          Pardon me people. This is my first attempt of making apricot cheesecake. It looks nice but it does not taste as sweet as it looks. For someone with sweet tooth, I recommend to glaze the cake with more or just sweetened the glaze a little more. Enjoy the recipe and I am grateful if you have any comments to improve this recipe. Thank you in advance.

Burger Bakar - Abang Burn vs. Kaw-Kaw



Salam and Hello,

After five hours exhausting journey back to KL, there are warning sounds made by the tummy that can be heard by my neighbor. It screams, “Fill me up, Fill me up, Please!” With the cold whether due to the rain and plus the traffic jam, the head start to feel drowsy. Luckily, one of my friends (there are three of us) asked if we wanted to have dinner before reaching home. Gladly, I said yes!

Supremo -  meat burger with slice of cheese, onion rings and deep fried mushroom from Burger Bakar Abang Burn (RM10.50)
We choose to ate somewhere near to my house. But have no idea exactly where to eat. Suddenly my friend suggested trying burger bakar (grilled burger) since he never tasted it before. As for me, I have eaten them before this and I think it is quite good and it is a big meal. First time having burger bakar with my fiancée at Burger Bakar Abang Burn located in Kota Damansara. At that time I choose meat grilled burger with onion rings and mushrooms. A big credit for the juicy meat patty and love the mushrooms. But honestly I am not a fan of burgers with lots of chili sauce and extra mayo. Overalls, I kinda like it.

Baconizer - Beef burger with slice of cheese and beef bacon at Burger Bakar Kaw-Kaw (RM10.50).
After a few rounds of hunting the burger stalls at Wangsa Maju, finally we found Burger Bakar Kaw-Kaw. Since this was our first time here, we don’t know which one is the best. So, we ordered the same Baconizer Burger which consists of burger with beef patty, slice of cheese and two strips of beef bacon. Again, it was big! I can’t imagine those who are having more than 2 patties. They must be really hungry! My first bite experience, it was a splendor! Sedap sangat! Beyond my imagination. Less sauce and mayo just like I them. The patty taste different from the other burgers that I have eaten before. Less fats maybe because through my observation, if the patty have high fats, I will have the oily taste and gooey. Lucky me, this doesn’t have that. Taste like homemade ground meat (not the one you bought from supermarket) with few spices! Superb and seriously want to have it again after this!

Pertama Kali Makan Nasi Ambeng



Assalam,

Masih saya ingat ketika masih belajar di universiti, seorang sahabat yang berketurunan Jawa seringkali bercerita tentang keenakan nasi ambeng. Pertama kali mendengarnya saya bertanya, “Nasi ambeng tu ape? Tak penah dengar pon?”. Lalu sahabat saya bercerita tentangnya dengan lebih lanjut. Menurutnya, nasi ambeng merupakan salah satu makanan yang biasanya dihidangkan di dalam dulang sewaktu majlis kenduri khasnya dilakukan oleh masyarakat Jawa. Hidangan merupakan nasi putih yang mepunyai lauk –pauk disekeliling seperti tempe goreng, urap, sambal goreng, ayam goreng dan yang lebih menarik mee goreng adalah salah satu lauk hidangan. Memang pelik pertama kali saya mendengarnya dan tidak dapat saya gambarkan pada ketika itu. 

          Melalui info yang terdapat di internet, nasi ambeng yang di sajikan melambangkan keberuntungan dan membawa harapan agar pihak yang menikmatinya akan di murahkan rezeki. 

Inilah rupa sepinggan nasi ambeng. Penuh sangat! Makan sampai mengah.

          Semasa kerja lapangan di Kuala Selangor tempoh hari, pertama kali saya berkesempatan untuk merasa hidangan nasi ambeng di Warung Ibu, Tanjung Karang. Perasaan ketika menikmatinya....Sedap! Saya tidak sangaka kombinasi mee goreng dan nasi putih boleh menjadi. Saya sarankan bagi sesiapa yang mempunyai kapasiti perut yang kecil, sepinggan hidangan nasi ambeng boleh dikongsi untuk dua orang. Memang sangat kenyang kalau seorang sahaja yang makan. Lepas ini, bolehlah saya makan nasi ambeng lagi!

Warung Ibu terletak di Batu 6, Kg. Sungai Gulang-Gulang, 45500, Tanjung Karang, Selangor.
Ia terletak kira-kira 12 minit dari bandar Kuala Selangor. (Pernah masuk JJCM 2010)

Clinic Café at Sunway Prai



A story of few months ago,

I was working up north and one night I was really hungry. Plus I have no idea where to find a good meal. Yup, being alone, hungry and far away from home was not a great thing. A night before, my colleagues was bragging about having dinner at a clinic near the hotel. They said that the clinic served them a really great meals and one of them were jabbed a few times. Half disbelieved with the jabbed thingy (because they look fine to me), at last they told me the truth that they had dinner at Clinic Café. Feel exited to try the food and I went there to have the experience. 

A step in the restaurant, I can feel the ambience of being in a hospital! Oh my, the nurses welcoming you and help with the orders. Unique! The food was nice and some clinic’s utensils were used! I like! Feeling-feeling sangat macam orang sakit. Enjoy people!

Aww! The interior is just like in hospital.

KFC - Kelantan Fried Chicken

Assalamualaikum,

I never tasted before in my life the Kelantan Fried Chicken (also know as Kel FC). Normally the products were marketed at night market and they have hundreds of branch throughout Malaysia. But I found out that they have opened their first ever restaurant in Equine Serdang. The waitress told us that they had already operating 7 months ago and will be promoting their restaurant on Jalan-jalan Cari Makan (JJCM) on this 21 Jan 2013! I am sure the restaurant will be a hot spot after this. 

Why did I say a HOT SPOT? It is because the price was so cheap and tasty! Really cheap and at the end of the day you are thankful enough with the full belly. I like to say that the  serving portion are more compared to the other KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken)! Of course the chicken size was absolutely bigger than what we usually eat at KFC. Not only that the chicken was marinated with their homemade recipe and it taste different. You have to taste it and you know what I mean.  

Well, I guess it is time for some changes! Let us support local and Halal food. Jom review what my friends and I had at the Kel Fried Chicken. Demo boleh kecek kelate pah ni :)


Whole Leg Chicken Chop RM8.00

Kelantan Chicken Chop RM5.00 ( One of the hot item! )

Chicken Rice Kel FC RM6.00 - The rice was so soft and aromatic!

Ice blended Chocolate and Tiramisu RM3.00 each.

Recipe: Making Pavlova!




Alhamdulillah, we meet again. It has been a while I didn't write a thing or two for the blog. Yup, been super busy with the cookies and some madness situation that I have to handle patiently. The cookies business have been a great deal lately and for that I am so blessed and thankful for the sustenance. Syukur!

           From making the cookies, there are lots of egg whites leftovers. After watching the Second Season of Masterchef  Malaysia, I am so keen to make myself a beautiful and puffy pavlova! It looks simple to make and yes people, it is so simple to make it. On the first trial, I gained the recipe from the net and the taste, masyaAllah! Super sweet and seriously I cannot eat them. Luckily I have my office colleague to finished them off. Actually I made the first pavlova especially for Maisarah birthday! Sorry Mai, it was too sweet to consume and happy belated birthday!

          This second trial came out perfect with some alteration to the previous recipe. A major alteration of course! Less sweet and the fruits was so tempting! These are the recipe and may you enjoy baking it.



PAVLOVA RECIPE

Ingredients
150g egg whites
150g castor sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 teaspoons of corn flour.
125ml non dairy whipped cream
75ml milk or any liquid will do
2 tablespoons of powdered sugar.
Fresh fruits.
Methods
  1. Pre-heat oven to 170˚C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw a 8 inch circle on the parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites, vanilla, sugar, corn flour and lemon juice until stiff but not dry. Beat until thick and glossy. Do not over beat. Be absolutely sure not a particle of grease or egg yolk gets into.
  3. Spoon mixture inside the circle drawn on the parchment paper. Working from the center, spread mixture toward the outside edge, building edge slightly. 
  4. Put your meringue into the oven and decrease the temperature to 100-120˚C. Bake for 1 hour and let the meringue rest a little bit in the oven (open the door a little bit). Cool on a wire rack.
  5. In a small bowl beat cream, milk and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form; set aside. Remove the parchment paper, and place meringue on a flat serving plate. Fill the center of the meringue with whipped cream. Top whipped cream with fresh fruits as what  you desires ( I recommend sweet sour fruits such as berries, mango, kiwi, passion fruits to balance the sweetness of the meringue).

Pardon my falling apricot :)
