Strawberry Peach Trifle

After a few attempts, I am still not a fan of this dessert (sebab I tak makan sangat pun). However, I truly agree that it is the easiest dessert ever! Mainly because no baking is required at all. Sesuai untuk orang yang nak keje senang macam I ni kan...heheheI think you know how to make trifle. Its sooo easy. What I used:Peaches sliced (1 tin), Strawberries (ikut suka banyak mana) Custard Cream – dipukul Jelly (I use Nona brand, its easy and tasty) Strawberry swiss rolls (waduh, yang ini susah nak carik, tapi luckily I managed to order from a bakery nearby office).Topped with some strawberries – kasi cantik merahThen, you know the drill, just suka hati lapis-lapis kan dia and chuck it in the fridge to cool.

Monrods Kitchen (Seksyen 20 Shah Alam) - nearby Suri Puteri

On the second last day of Ramadhan, we had a family iftar here. Reason being; easy, my doctor brother had to work so its nearby our house and the clinic, plus we did not want to have buffet anymore (wah banyak pulak sebabnya).Monrods Seksyen 20 Shah AlamAccording to the staff, this is a new franchise, the one in Section 13 is the real owner. There was only 2 families at at the restaurant so we had our food just in time (sesuai dengan tagline diorang 'Kelainan Jadi Sebutan', ini memang satu kelainan di mana hanya ada 2 keluarga je yang makan kat tempat ni)...heheheheNasi Ayam di Istana RM14.60 – rasa dia bebiasa jer Chicken Chop (black pepper) RM12.90 – pun rasa cam bebiasa Seafood Combo RM9.90 – err..sikit sangat Tutty Fruity Blended RM6.90 – ni memang best!Chicken Chop (mushroom sauce) RM12.90 – ni pun bebiasa jer
Monrods Ice Blended RM7.90 – haaa ni paling best…highly recommended Ni pun paling best!!!It was cheap, but not as tasty as if you had a dinner in say, Chillies…

Not-so disastrous online shopping

Disclaimer: What you are about to read is purely my own fault and nothing to do with the online sellers, they're all just fine. It's just me being kiasu (scared of losing) and excited to purchase without further thought process. So, please, do continue with your online shopping ya.How much faith do you put in online shopping? Are you at all times, satisfied 100% with your online purchases? As for me, I was 100% satisfied when I bought nursing clothes using hopshopgo (see my entry about it here). But, somehow, like shawl or tudungs, I would prefer if I could touch and see them in front of my eyes. Even though this is my stand when purchasing scarves, being a human being with a sense of kiasu, especially when almost everything you see online on a well-known online shop is 'sold out' or 'not in stock', I hurriedly want to purchase without further thinking of the specifications of the desired item. Like I just want it you know.First I bought this:Ni tudung sarungIt…

Noodle Station in Kota Bharu

We had dinner in Noodle Station because it was the ONLY decent restaurant opened for business on the second day of Aidilfitri. We wanted to celebrate my dad's birthday. We didn't want to go to hotels as the food might not be tasty (because most people were still in holiday mood) <---takde kaitan. Anyway, it was quite ok though, not expensive but beware that there's no other meals other than noodle, so if you are not a fan, then please proceed to another restaurant.If you want to know, this is a historic place as it is the first Noodle Station in Malaysia opened in 2005 (ok, you don't want to know).See what we had: Curry Mee – rasa bebiasa jer… Iced Lychee Tea (tak paham why takde lychee) Mango blended with random fruit toppingMaggi Tom Yam (kot)My brother had this..he said he had no idea what it was“Korang makan la tu suma, I makan cover lense camera my dad lagi best”Contact details (but you won't miss it)

Yuna @Dewan Filharmonik Petronas (DFP)

My second nite out with hubby after bersalinkan Amar (first was buka puasa di Serai, Empire Shopping Gallery).Yuna @DFP ticketsThe hurdle when going for a night out is Amir crying and begging us not to go out or he would suggest to bring him along. True enough, we had to make up stories about how Yuna cannot meet us at home so we had to go out and meet her instead together with all other audiences at the DFP.<----- (bermacam cadangan dia bagi, suh call Yuna, siap suh bagi address, jumpa lain kali..waduhh).Anyway, after the drama we rushed to KLCC and we were late. We missed the first song Someone Out Of Town. (Ergh, terpaksa enjoy kat luar je. Seems that a lot of people were late too <------ ok, ayat ni tak justify apa2.After the song, we rushed in. Our seat is middle seat, but because we were late, we had to sit and the end but still it was near to the stage, memang clear. Yuna was wearing a royal blue dress with a bling bling belt and a turban, with high heels. She looks so la…

Aidilfitri 2011: Part 3 (homebound)

It was 4 Syawal and we planned to go back to KL. But before that, we made a first stop in Pengkalan Chepa for breakfast at my aunty's house and then spent the next half an hour camwhoring at the paddy fields (jakun gile).Us 4We made so many pit stops. At first, my dad planned to have our lunch in Beserah but due to time constraint and sentimental reasons, we had our 'lunch' at 5 pm in Pantai Primula Beach Resort. Yes, when I was a lot younger, this hotel is 'the' hotel to singgah whenever we went back to Kelantan. It used to have a water fountain at the main entrance but not anymore. See what I had (memang sedappp).Pantai Primula Beach Resort Special Fried RiceOur next pit stop was Makcik Gemuk 69. This is the place where my mom gets her keropok supply. The business is now taken over by Makcik's daughter but the stall  didn't look improved. Not many items were for sale. Nevertheless, we stopped there for again, sentimental values.Makcik Gemuk 69Mom negotiat…

Aidilfitri 2011: Part 2 (Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah)

If you go Kelantan, this a pit stop that you must not miss. To tell you the truth, Kelantan memang tak berubah sejak I kecik dulu. Same as this market. But, this time I looked forward to go to this famous market. Believe me, I dreaded to come here when I was young (pada I, aktiviti di pasar ni amat memboringkan). Tapi sekarang sebab dah berzaman tak balik, nah amik ko...hubby, dad, my brothers and Amir layankan aje...kitorang pegi pasar ni macam pelancong....siap amik gambar bagai...untuk blog lah katakan...so, layankan aje the pics....BuduThe only makcik around…yang lain masih bercutiDodol comeyTelur penyu…(sekarang tak makan sebab nak save the turtles…)Samba daging (serunding daging/ayam/ikan)Do spot us from afar (hehe…tapi ada orang tak meniaga so spoiler sikit gambar dengan polisterin)Amir boring menungguSotong?..confused.Fuh….so dangerous ok…..what if somebody runs amok in the market?After the market we went to Bazar Buloh Kubu (just a walking distance). Here, there are a variety…

Aidilfitri 2011: Part 1 (family and food)

It has been ages since I came back to Newcastle, my birth place...err (note: Kota Bharu ye, sendiri jangan perasan). So this year, the whole family went to Kelantan for Aidilfitri (plus the first time for hubby and kids). It was really fun coz we treated it like a vacation. Plus semua adik-beradik I ada. We stayed in an apartment. So basically we had cheap accomodation, ample space and freedom like in our own house (boleh masak, basuh baju dan penuhkan fridge). The best part was, our apartment became the main spot for everyone in the family to reunite pagi 1 Syawal haritu. Everyone brought food, Kelantan specialities obviously, such as kuzi ayam, ketupat palas, jala emas, tahi itik, nasi kerabu and nasi dagang. And someone kena cium (read on).First, lets talk about the apartment. It is really big, with 4 rooms but not so clean (I mean, ideally you need to bring a vacuum and clean the apartment yourself but obviously we did not bring a vacuum the whole 10+ hours journey). Anyway, it is…
