Pernah dapat offer dari MAS Airlines!



Sape tak kenal Adam Mukhriz?? Heheheheh..

Suke tgk Am pakai uniform pilot dia dalam citer Adam dan Hawa. Hensem & smart ok!! hihihihi...

Ntah kenapa I boleh relate uniform pilot Am tu ngan MAS Airlines. Macam la MAS je ada pilot! Hahahaha...

Kalau cakap pasal MAS Airlines kan, automatic I akan terbayang uniform pramugari MAS juga. 

Pernah juga zaman sekolah dulu ada cita-cita nak jadi pramugari! Hahahaah... tak perasan diri bukannya tinggi mana pun! Huhuhu..

Percaya tak I hampir dapat pakai uniform MAS tu??? 

Kesahnya after graduate 10thn lps, MAS ada publish job ads utk post Ticketing Officer. So, I dengan 3 lagi org kawan I sebok la nak test power!


Yang datang interview, tak payah ckp la... beratur panjang!! Ada yg dtg dari kampung rasanya sbb parent pun dtg sekali temankan anak nak interview. Dressing tak payah ckp la. Mmg melaram ala2 corporate ok!  Yg pakai kebaya pun ada jg. Tiba-tiba rasa tak konfiden sbb dressing ala kadar je. Make up pun mau tak mau! Huhuhuu..

Time queue tu, ada sorang yg in-charge check documents. Kalau tak lengkap, reject! Dasyat! Ramai yg tak bw Cover Letter. So, org tu bagi kertas A4 suruh kita tulis on the spot. Tulis cincai je! Asal ada. Heheheeh..

Siap ada 2-3x filter pula tau before di-interview. Tak ingat la part filter tu. Takde konfiden sgt pun. Just suke-suki je. Pastu ada briefing pula psl keje kat MAS ni. Masa tu gaji basic dia RM900 je. Pastu ada elaun dobi RM80 ke. Then kena training 3bln kat Kelana Jaya before start keja. Yg paling takut sbb ada kontrak selama 3 thn dgn MAS. Kalau diberhentikan atau resign dalam masa 3 thn tu, kena bayar penalti RM15,000 kat MAS!! Omaigod!!

Few weeks ke months ek.. tak ingat la.. I dpt call mengatakan permohonan I berjaya!!! Time tu sgt gembira!! Tak percaya pun ada! Dalam beratus2 yg dtg (serius mmg ramai yg dtg time interview tu), I terpilih????? Mcm mimpi ok! 

Ok ok.. mmg la jawatan biasa2 je... bkn CEO ke ape ke kan.. tp after all the filter process, I still rasa bkn senang nak dpt offer masuk MAS kecuali ada org dlm kot! So, mmg bangga pun ada. I layak ok!!

I kena buat medical check up kat panel clinic MAS. First time la I buat breast check up time tu. Eee.. malu sbb doc lelaki!!

Tp masa tu I masih tak sure nak terima ke tak offer tu. I call mak, anty, cousin yg keje MAS nak minta pendapat diorang. Banyak yg I fikir masa tu.

At the end, I tak pegi pun melapor diri pada hari yg sepatutnya! 

Time tu fikir... I think I bleh dpt better offer with my degree. 3 thn kontrak tu mcm lama sgt. Anything can happen kan. 1 thn mengganggur baru tau betapa susahnya nak cari keje kat KL ni even you're a degree holder! Org tak pandang sgt pun pada cert degree you tu!!

Pernah jg terlintas di fikiran, kalau I terima offer tu mesti I bkn mcm I yg skrg. Kenapa bleh fikir mcm tu ek??? Hmm.. ntah la.. tp surrounding kita akan sedikit sebanyak akan mengubah personaliti kita. Percaya atau tidak?

Anyway, nothing to be regret about. Life goes on. :)

Btw, it's already the last day of Nov!! Phewwww

Developing interests : Baking & Sewing

As you know, I have been busy with my baking for the past 2-3 weeks. Every weekend, I'll be baking at least 1 recipe.  So yeah.. I have successfully (berjaya la juga kan!) baked Choc Fondant Lava Cake, Cream Puff and Choc Chip Cookies

One that failed was Hokkaido Chiffon Cake. Nevermind. Will try again. :)


Being me, it is such a big step! Hahaha... My mom and hubby are so surprise yet happy at the same time. I am having so much fun that I wanted so much to complete my  baking utensils. Hah!!

I must thanks to Stella for her Choc Fondant Lava Cake that has melted my heart to finally bake! hihihihi... Betul ni Stel!! :D

This morning, I found myself google-ing sewing machine for beginner!! Huh?? 

Brother LS 2160 @ RM649
Just nice for beginner

I didn't managed to get my MIL and late SIL to teach me to sew when I stayed with them few years back. Rugi pula kan.. Siok tgk dorang jahit baju sendiri & alter baju sendiri.. 

To be honest, I do have the interest to be able to bake and sewing since young. I loves cookies and I always wanted to try out sewing my own baju kurung. Currently, I love to see those lovely tote bags out there! Macam senang ja buat kan?

Credit to : Sewing Summit

I thought of enrolling myself into sewing class before. Tapi, itu la.. mau juga ada kawan! Hmmm... Besides, no extra budget for the class tho!

If you don't act to develop your interest.. nothing gonna happens and you won't know if you can do it or not. Betul ka tidak? 

So now.. I know that I can bake! hahaha.. Sewing? jahit tangan mmg boleh la.. sewing with machine? I need to have a sewing machine then only I can learn to operate the machine. Right? Wrong?

Sewing machine in the buying-wish-list pula... *$.$*

4th Baking : Chocolate Chip Cookies

Atas permintaan kawan2 di FB, so saya dgn gembira nak share resepi Chocolate Chip Cookies yang saya bake pada Ahad malam!! So, I only slept for 5 hours before off to work!! Baking punya pasal!! LOL

I got this recipe book in a Christmas exchange gift party at the office in 2007 if not mistaken!!
Sekarang baru digunapakai! Hahahah

Ok.. straight to the point. Get ready your ingredients.

180g flour (shifted)
1tsp baking powder (shifted)
140g butter
80g sugar
1 egg
1tsp vanilla essence
100g choc chips
70g walnut chopped
(for 36pcs roughly)

1. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. 
Pukul butter dan gula sehingga kembang


2. Add in egg and vanilla essence, continue beating. 
Masukkan telur dan esen vanila, pukul lagi.

3. Fold in shifted flour and baking powder. 

Masukkan tepung gandum dan baking powder yg telah diayak

4. Mix in chocolate chip and walnut chopped. 

Masukkan chocolate chip dan walnut cincang. Gaul rata.



5. Drop dough with a teaspoon on a greased baking tray. 

Sudukan adunan ke atas dulang pembakar yang digris mentega atau digalas dengan kertas minyak.
Boleh juga diuli menjadi bebola kecil menggunakan tangan.

Jarakkan adunan (dalam 1 inci) sebab adunan akan mengembang 
dan leper bila proses pembakaran.

6. Bake at 180ºc for 15 - 25 minutes.

The before and after bake! I baked for 25mins.

Bakar pada suhu 180ºc selama 15-25 minit menggunakan api atas dan bawah.
 Sejukkan dahulu biskut dalam tray dalam 5 minit baru dipindah atas redai dan biar sejuk sepenuhnya sebelum disimpan di dalam bekas kedap udara.

Chocolate Chip Cookies by Chef Just!!

Not that crunchy (maybe need to bake longer) but the cookies are just nice. Not that sweet. :)



Overall, it was quite easy to bake this cookies and I am so happy that my kids like it very much! So, boleh la double or triple kan bahan2 lepas ni! heheheeh... 

Happy baking all!

3rd Baking : FAILED!

Since I still have whipped cream, I attempted to bake Hokkaido Chiffon Cake on last Friday nite!


Rupa dah ada... tapi....


kek tak jadi!!


There is nothing wrong with the recipe, definitely!

I think I didn't beat the eggs until foamy. Blaming myself for not really study bout the "Kaedah kaup balik". :(

Not going to give up. Will try this recipe again in future and will blog out the tutorial if I made it! :)

So, utk merawat kekecewaan di hati.. heheheh... ada dua projek baking yg menyusul.. next entry ok! *wink*

p/s : Happy buffday Datuk Teh! Wish you good health and long life! Thank you for all the supports during my hard time.

The whipped cream..

I made 2 types of creams for my cream puff from the same ingredients. What make them different is the texture of the cream.

Lets start with the recipe again..

1 cup of dairy whipping cream
1/3 cup of icing sugar
1tsp of vanilla essence

The method:
Stir dairy whipping cream until soft peak. 
Add in icing sugar and vanilla essence.
Stir until you get stiff peak.
Chill in refrigerator.

Cream A - before chill

After I get stiff peak, I thought that I should stir a lil bit more. However, I was surprised to see the texture. Macam kental-kental + lemak whipping cream. Terlebih pukul ka?? Huhuhuuh... Nevertheless, I still keep it in the refrigerator. 

Cream A  - after chilled.
I think this should be the correct cream texture.
But, is it correct to have the whipping cream's fat

So, I decided to re-do the whole thing again. 

Cream B
But this one (Cream B) is quite soft and melting. Hmmm...

Here's what I get after spooned the cream into the cream puff.

L : Cream B
R : Cream A

Any idea, what went wrong? Is it the whipping cream? Less sugar?? The speed of whisking? The duration of whisking? Hmm.. Any expert here??

Really need to try other recipe & method for whipping cream la in future!

2nd Baking : Cream Puff with Whipped Cream Filling

I was drooling as I read a post bout baking cream puff by a fellow blogger friend. I was thinking if I can bake them too. And I stumbled into this recipe by Juicy Cafe & Cakes that comes along with photos! It will be just great for a beginner like me! *wink*

So yeah... baking cream puff as my 2nd baking project on last Saturday afternoon.

First thing first, ingredients preparation..

Notice photo B?? Well, pls bake when your children are sleeping..
or else.. begitu la jadinya! 
Anak-anak pun mau main tepung!! *pengsan*

Stir dairy whipping cream until soft peak.
Add in icing sugar and vanilla essence.
Stir until you get stiff peak.
Chill in refrigerator.
Will post an entry bout my whipping creams! Huhuhu

Preheat oven to 200ºC 

Melt butter in a saucepan over a medium high heat.
Add in water, castor sugar and salt.
Bring to boil.
Add in flour and stir constantly
until the dough does not stick to the pan and form a thick dough.

Leave to cool dough for 10-15mins.
Beat in eggs one at a time (low speed) until mixture is stiff.
Iklan jap.. Oh anakku!! 

Spoon dough into piping bag.

Pipe the dough onto greased baking sheet.
Bake in oven at 200ºC for 30mins.
This was the first tray.
Malu pula tiba2... huhuhu...
I find it very hard to use the piping bag coz the dough is thick!

The 2nd tray was much much better!
I used the piping gun-bottle instead of piping bag!
So much easier ok!

Note : the choux pastry will deflate if they are not fully baked.

I believe I have successfully baked the choux pastry! I used a scissor to get a 'hole' for the filling.
You can just pipe or spoon the chilled whipped cream into the 'hole'.
And dust them with icing sugar.
 Tadaaa... 
Cream Puff with Whipping Cream Filling by Chef Just!! 


I got 2 types of creams. Will brag bout this in next entry.
Need to try out other recipes for the whipped cream tho.


Extra Tips supaya cream puff tak "mengecut" after baked :
1. Oven must be preheat first.
2. Dough must be leave to cool before bit with eggs.
3. Must be fully baked (golden brownies) in oven.  


Overall, baking cream puff is not easy as I thought. Phewww... I almost gave up ok! Nyway, I managed to get 10 mini cream puff and 13 medium size cream puff. Taste yummy and all the cream puffs habis dimakan dgn sekelip mata! yayyyy...

Still got whipped cream... next project will be??? jeng jeng jeng...

Rash vs Potty Training

My daughter has been suffering with RASH for the past one week and they are at the private area!! 

Of coz it happened before. We used to apply Drapolene Cream (you know the pink tube rite?) to treat the rash before they 'disappeared' in few days. However this round, it didn't work!! *sigh*

We've tried to change diapers frequently. We even changed diaper brand. Apply flour. Still none of them working! Ryanna tends to take off her diaper even it is still usable. Only pee once! She prefers half-naked! O.+

For the past two days, I asked my mom to apply ONLY the Pure Marine Collagen (PMC) on the affected area and surprisingly it is getting better. The reddish becomes pinkish and the area affected getting smaller. Yipeee...

Thanks PMC! Banyak tau kebaikan PMC ni! Hihihih...

Btw, one more tips for rash at the private part.. apply cooking oil on the affected area. The rational is  oil and water is not mixable. So, the wet nappy/pampers will not worsen the affected area. This tip really work! :D

And at the same time, we thought it is the perfect time for Ryanna's potty training. So, we leave her half-naked for easy training. Hahahah..

For the whole day on last Saturday, we've been keep asking her if she wanna pee and we will get her to sit at the potty. She will sit but not really pee and ended up pee everywhere!! *slap forehead* At nite, she surprised us by taking off her pant and pee at the potty! She made it twice!!! Yeahhh!!

Yesterday, we did the same thing. She missed few times in the morning and did very well at nite. Mom and I were watching tv at mom's bedroom when Ryanna suddenly came in and passed her potty. She has just pee!! Good job girl! 

Dgn bangga nya sbb dah pass potty training!!

Before she went to bed last nite, we have put on diaper for her. Without realising that she took off her pant, santut and diaper before pee at the potty!! Yeahhh... Ryanna passes her potty training in just 2 days!! *clap hands*

I remember Rayyan also passed his potty training easily when he was about Ryanna's age. *wink*

Jimat la kos pampers lepas ni! Heheheh...

Btw, will need to buy one more different-colour potty for Ryanna coz the green one belongs to Rayyan (bilang c Rayyan). Adehhh... Berebut la pulak anak-anak ni!

Visiting CathJ

Salam Maal Hijrah kepada muslimin muslimat sekalian!

It's the New Year in Islamic calendar. Like everyone else, of coz I pray for a better year, good health and dimurahkan rezeki kami sekeluarga. ^_^

Anyway, the initial plan to bake on yesterday afternoon was cancelled.

Since it was a public holiday yesterday, I think it would be great if I could pay a visit to a dear friend, CathJ, who is currently being warded at Hospital Pantai Kuala Lumpur. CathJ is a blogger friend who was also my secondary school senior and has recently become my tailor. :) 

So, I whatsapp Tunung asked if she wants to come along. Actually, 'pok' transportation juga! Hahaha... She said yes if it's not raining! Besides, she has to drive all the way from Puchong and she is not familiar with the KL roads. The best part is, she only starts driving for 2mths! Wow!! I wish I am as brave as her!!

My plan was we will be visiting CathJ between 12pm - 2pm (visiting hour) and baking in the afternoon. However Tunung got lost and only managed to fetch me after 2 hours i.e 1.30pm. You can't really rely on GPS!! 

So, we decided to go to the hospital on the next visiting hour which is 5pm-10pm. While waiting, we went to Jusco Maluri for lunch, wandering there for a while before we went for a quick baking-stuff-shopping!! Hahaha.. sempat lagi!

We finally reached the hospital at 5.15pm!

proof that we were there!! LOL

By the way, CathJ has been diagnosed with breast cancer stage 3A! She has almost the same case like mine. Her previous doc advised her to remove whole breast which is such a bad idea!! I am so very glad that she went for second opinion and seek advice from my doc, Dr Patricia Gomez. 

Photo from Tunung's hp. So, no watermark! Hihihi..
Us and CathJ with her hose-bag!
I remember bringing that hose-bag to fun fair and shopping mall! Hahaha..

If you are in KL, I would strongly recommend Dr Patricia Gomez for those seeking for breast cancer consultation. She is the Top 2 BEST Breast Cancer Specialist in Malaysia! Dr Patricia will does her best to preserve your breast!

We spent about an hour chit chatting with CathJ. I know she is a strong lady and she will definitely fight this positively! You can go thru this Cath. Chayo chayo!! *hugs*

Shall resume to baking tonite! ^_^

Mengemas store room


So, what are you doing today? Visiting any Indian friends houses?

We don't have any house to visit. So, we just stay at home. Besides, hubby will be departing to Hatyai for 2nites tomorrow.

He is now working with travel and tour agency. So yeah.. I guess he will be travelling frequently after this. *jealous*

I have just done with my store room clearing. Setiap kali kemas store room mesti ada yg dibuang.

I hate the feeling dumping or donating my stuff. Be it entrance tickets, small notes, unique price tags, etc. They might look junk but each of them have their own sentimental values. Yeahh.. I am a sentimental person! Heh!!

Anyway, this round I've decided to donate the above pregnancy magz and the green file where I used to file song lyrics. *sigh*

I really wish I have my own special store room where I can keep all my dream collections. Huhuhu..

There are still some other stuffs that will be given away in the next round of store room clearing! Hmm..

Sakit hati kalau buang semua satu kali! Hehehhe..
