It's CHOCalicious time Y(^_^)Y

I must admit that I really like desserts. Cakes, to be exact. Kalo tak ingatkan penyakit dan berat badan memang keje nak mkn jek.hehe..Tak dapat makan pun,cuci mata pon jadi la :p

What is your favourite cake???hehe

For me?? numero uno----> Cheesecakes!!!! owh..and Black Forest too..hehe

Chocolate?Okay la but not really a favourite of mine..But then, as long as it is delicious and yummy and ho chiak, I don't mind though.Hehehe :p

Have u tasted this kind of cheesecake that is like butter cake but it's cheese. I prefer that compared to the New York Cheesecake type coz it's not that heavy (in texture,that is). My mom bought it from this bakery at KLCC (if I'm not mistaken la since it was so many years ago) and we like it. It was quite expensive for a slice of it. It's a Japanese cake shop if I'm not mistaken. Mom would buy it when we went there again until we found out that the shop had been closed and we rarely went back to KL (dah jarang balik cmne nak gi KLCC,ye x?) So,one day, Mom found out a recipe from a column in the NST from Betty Yew. Mom tried on the recipe and voila, same jek mcm yang beli tu..hehe..Well, a bit different la coz the ones that we bought was kinda light in texture whereas the one that Mom did was a bit heavier but still lighter in texture compared to the ordinary cheesecakes.

Secret Recipe's cakes are good but I can still remember the cheesecakes from Dave's Deli. When Carrefour Seberang Jaya was opened, there was this one Dave's Deli outlet. At that time, the foods are not that expensive.Now??? hmmm..Ok..tu citer lain..So, there was this tea time promos where u would get free coffee for every purchase of its cheesecake,of course..Seriously,u guys..mmg sedap..Sooo cheesy..macam aiskrim punye keras..Makan sket pon dah rase puas sgt2 and we shared it with 3 persons ok~ And the slice was like sooo big compared to the slice size nowadays..sigh~

Btw,enough with this my favourite-cake-story (ni la padah when I just can't stop writing,er,typing :p)

Actually, this post is to show u the cupcakes that we baked for our beloved adik who loves chocolate~ We tried on this recipe from The Big Book of Baking that Mom bought from a book fair-in a ship..a big ship ok..hehe..The book is really good. It has recipes on cakes,biscuits and breads together with some tips on baking. (o0o0oppss...menyimpang lagi..hehe :p)

So, Mom chose to bake Chocolate Molten Cake. The cake is kinda hard in texture and it has chocolate sauce in the inside but then ours were not that sauce-like coz Mom put on chocolate chips instead of chocolate bar (ssh nak potong ok~) but then we realised that maybe we should put more chips in it. So,mom decided to put some chocolate butter cream on the cakes.

Me :   Nape macam keras jek, xmacam buttercream pon..
Mak : Butter kurangla dah butter hbs..Icing sugar byk dari butter..
Me :   o0o0o...
Mak : Lagi pon,nak byk2 butter buat ape? lagi gemuk adela..
Me :   *dush

Btw, from the book, I learned how to make the icing mcm yg org dok jual online tu...xsusah pon rupe2nye..hehe..

So, our cakes does not fare well enough in the decoration department. Nampak mcm xsedap pon. But then, just don't judge the book by its cover ya..

The cupcakes-fresh from the oven
The cakes-zoom mode (somehow,i suke tgk ade crack kat cakes tu.hehe)

The cupcakes with icings on top
Hehehe. Yummylicious~ (is there such a word? :p )
See?? the not so chocolate sauce :p

 But then, the cake is rich in chocolate. Since I just love cakes, regardless of it is chocolate,since it's yummy, so, I just like it. Hehehe..

Btw, this few years, I mean, lately bkn baru sgt pon..I feel that I do like to bake..and cook too..hehehe

Well,anak mak la katekan :)

Lagi pon, call me old fashioned..pompuan still kene pndai masak..haha!!

Debt aka Hutang

Do u have debts??No??? Unless if u are a baby and those aged 18 and below la kot or u are just plain lucky...huhuh...

I'm called to write on this issue bcoz a friend of mine just asked regarding the conversion from 3% to 1% for PTPTN loan. She asked me what is my opinion on the conversion.

My opinion? Of course la SUKE!!!!!

The reason, er, reasons are :

1. The whole loan will be recalculated. So all the current amount due (which is inclusive of the 3% admin fee) will be void...
2. Since the debt will be lesser thus ----> cepat habis bayar la kan?? hehe

My friend said she was not keen with the method of payment where the payment will be deducted from our monthly salary coz the payment slip will not be that cantik if u want to apply for housing loan and lari budget since tiap2 bulan byr sket jek...

Hmm...ok,this is PURELY my personal opinion ya..jangan datang serang lak...but comments are welcomed ok..

For me, I'm happy. In fact I was dead worried why my application for the conversion was still not approved (tp dah approved dh skrg..hehe) coz u know why? I have 2 study loans (Diploma and Degree). If the interest rate stays at 3%,mmg jenuh nak I'm really happy with the conversion.

I like the deduction from the salary method coz I won't forget to pay the debt..If possible,kalo menang loteri ke hadiah tunai ke (btw,lottery is strictly wrong in Islam ya..Itu adalah perumpamaan semata2 :p ), memang macam nak bayar sume hutang balik...Though I never fail to pay the debt every month when I was working, for me,it's like a nuisance to go to the bank to pay and not forgetting the commissions u have to pay. Tolak gaji xyah bayar komisyen.hehe.If for every payment u have to pay RM1 regardless of how many u pay la kan, RM1 X 12 months?? isk,sket2 pon leh beli nasik tu...hohoho

For me, I prefer to settle my debt as soon as possible..But then,subject to our financial situation la kan..hehe..

In fact, in Islam, we are advised to settle our debt and if possible stay out of debt..coz if we die and we still have unsettled debts, our next of kin have to settle them..

And I remembered this one person said few years back while I was just a fresh graduate, ala,hutang PTPTN tu xkan habis bayar punye..baik byr rm50 cmtu je tiap2 bulan bg nmpk..

Hmm,personally, this is what I think---> Ko pndai hutang pastu ko xnak byr? dahtu yg ko gi hutang sape suh..kalo byr takat rm50 tu pon kdg2 x selalu byr,mmg la xkan hbs byr..dgn 3% reducing balance method tu..mmgla...hape la~~~

Seriously, this is the mentality of some person.. I don't know why..Youngsters nowadays always take things for granted ( i pon youngster gak okay~hehe) A lot of people aged 35 years old and below are being declared bankrupt coz of their inability to settle their debt ESPECIALLY credit card 1 lagi prob hutang..

I don't know why but I'm not really a fan of this card. Well,of coz it has its pros too ie nak bayar barang harga ribu2 ke..(xkan nak bawak cash?igt dunia ni aman dari perompak dah ke skrg?psl duit ciput pon leh bunuh2..) Seriously,for me,if u can afford to pay using cash,then if possible,avoid having one..coz the temptation to overspend is there..yela..kalo xcukup duit---> xpe,credit card kan ade...nnt kte byrla blk..pastu tgk2 xcukup duit nak bayar..tangguh2 kene bayar lebih2 lg...xkire yearly fee and other fees yg korg xtau..huhuhu...then when u can't settle the debt after countless memos---> BANKRUPTCY

When u are declared as a bankrupt, hmm...enjoyla all the disadvantages...sume susah...lagi2 yg muda2 ni..segala loan xleh buat..nak mtk keje pon org pk byk kali..

U know, I don't care if people said I ni kedekut ke ape coz for me, I'm just planning my wealth. Nak ckp aku ni dekut xnak shopping ke ape ke,ikut aku la kan..Dahtu,kalo ssh,ko nak tolong bagi duit ke?

I remembered this 1 lady,when I was studying in IPG. Dengan suara punya kuat dan mmg niat nak memalukan la kan minah ni---> Ko ni,Juita..skali skala belanja la ktorg mkn. Nak naik keta ko punye ssh. Asyik kat maktab jek. Bwk la ktorg g jln2.

Kalo xikutkan hati dan cucukan syaitan,memang I bagi free jek but since I treat her as a FREN, I jwb lemah lembut jela ckp aku xde duit la..

Tapi dalam hati---> Apsal la aku yang kena blanje lak? Aku rase elaun aku same jek mcm ko. Aku xde bf tlg support mcm ko. Siap ade 2 laki nak tlg support. Ko igt aku xde hutang ke? Kete aku tu isi air ke nak bg gerak? Ko nak tolong bagi duit servis ke? Ko igt aku ni teksi nak bwk gi jalan2?? Banyak cantik???? Aku bwk kete pon psl praktikal la..ceyt...dah ko keje nak jalan2 jek,xyah dtg blaja,bwk kete sendiri,gi la jalan2 smpai puas..

Haih...sometimes,people like to say things without using their brain..pastu bsg2 xde duit la hape..

O0o0o0pppsss...dah jauh menyimpang lak..hehe

So,the conclusion is, try to be debt-free..and settle ur debt...Kte yg hutang,kte bayar...Tak baik kan,kte dah xde nnt,ditanye dalam kubur...dan susahkan waris2 kte...

Until then. nite nite :)

(p/s: do comment if there's any mistake ya..n on the cuppies post...later la..hehe...tgh mls nk upload gbr :p)

Vanilla muffin wif raisins..fuyyooo...hohoho..I will post on the cuppies later coz I'm tired,my leg is aching and tomorrow we are going to visit my lil adik.hehe..lil ke?

When we are going to visit him, my mom will cook very early and will be the sous chef gitu..hehe..tukang bungkus ala2 kat kedai mamak lg tau~

So,tomorrow will be a bz day n tiring day coz I will be driving n surely I will be pengsan during the,laterla I post on the cuppies..kalo I rajin,I post la...hohoho...

Uncertainty..hmmm...sape suke? Of course,we don't know wut the future holds for us thus--->uncertainty..

Ni ape kes tetibe ckp psl uncertainty ni? Actually, I'm bored with this uncertainty from my future boss~~seriously u guys, gaji xde--->duit xde---->bank account makin xde---->nak beli brg xleh---->nak byr bil xleh------->len kali keje 3 bln xde gaji-------------->DAH TU CELAH MANE NAK HIDUP KRG NI?????

Seriously, I'm pissed..I don't mind the late posting but the least they could do is just tell the possible month. If next year,then ok la..leh ktorg carik keje dl...hmm..skrg dh rugi brp bulan punye gaji kalo awl2 dh keje...Now I have to find temporary job lak..Igt senang nak cari???Isk...Korg tau x, I was rejected by dis 1 popular 24 hrs convenient store coz it seems that I'm overqualified~ (hello???i xmtk jd manager pon..i nak keje part time jek~~)

So, now I have to make a gud use of my anger management skill now....pheww~~~

Till then, au revoir~


What was ur ambition? Remember the times when we were in school and we had to fill in our ambition in our blue coloured file?huhuh...I remembered that i wanted to become a lawyer. From Year 1 to Year 6. Lawyer,lawyer,lawyer. Nape nak jadi lawyer pun xtau. Coz I thought lawyer was a cool job kot(pengaruh tgk drama Hong Kong everyday :p)

Then,I heard that to be a lawyer, u have to be good in ur history subject which was not a good news to me (sejarah  cukup2 makan credit ok :p ) So,lawyer was not in my list anymore. Guess wut? I wanted to be a journalist lak.hehe..Seriously, I had this thought that I wud never survive a 9-5 job coz I wud be bored to death by just sitting and doing works and atas pengaruh tv lg, journalist seemed to fit the bill. hohoho..

Then, when I was in Form 4 and chose Accounts as my elective, I knew that I wanted to further my studies in that field coz it WAS fun. Seriously..that was the subject that I enjoyed do all the book keeping, to calculate the depreciation,to get the balance sheet balanced..I remembered that I wud keep trying to find the answers till I got it balanced..So it was a natural thing to further my studies in the subject since I scored well..So,during my university time,after all the exposures,my ambition was to be an accountant. A chartered accountant to be exact. Where everyone might be familiar with ACCA (Association of Certified Chartered Accountants), I was not interested with that bcoz for me I was interested with CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants). The reason? Coz I felt I was doing great in the cost management subject rather than financial statements. The other reason was that I felt ACCA glemer sgt...byk org amik..CIMA xramai..lg glemer...hmm...I really hold to that ambition till I realised that I probably have to let go that ambition coz I realized my results were not good enough to make me eligible to further my studies..seriously,I felt regret and it was totally,100% my fault coz I was distracted especially during my degree..( bercinta la hape lg....hambik..) During my final year, I felt like I had no interest in the course anymore coz I felt I had no drive,no motivation. I just did it just for the sake of finishing it and get my degree..

But during my practical, I realised that audit was kinda boring..(FYI,audit is checking company's accounts ie;accountants' or accounts managers' works.From there,we will derive the audited income statement etc for annual reports) Seriously, I was bored and being in this field was very stressful. If a trainee pon dh kene push giler2,lg la permanent staff..And the salary for an audit assistant is really small..unless if u work at the Big 4 co ie. PricewaterhouseCoopers,Deloitte,Ernst & Young and KPMG. The heavy workloads, rushing for datelines and stuck in the office and small salary...I must say,there's something missing..okla...ckp byk2 psl bende ni pon,krg korang boring lak..huhuh..

So when I finally graduate, tetibe recession la plak~~ so after failed interviews and endless job seeking, I tried my luck in becoming a relief teacher coz my mom asked me to try..BTW, did u know wut subject that I had to teach during my 1st stint??? HISTORY!!!!!!! Yup..i kene ajar sejarah okay...subjek yang i paling benci dan paling boring. (hambek..yg mane ko benci la lg ko dpt kan..hambek ko,Juita) But then, when being a teacher, it's different..I felt like if I was bored to learn history then I wanted it to be fun..I wanted them to enjoy learning history even though for a month..But that short stint didn't leave much impact but still I felt quite good yet I didn't know wut was it..

Finally when I was given a 1 year contract to teach English in this 1 school that I finally realised wut it is..A satisfaction..I don't know how to describe it..To see them being able to learn and understand..the happiness,all the mischievous and naughty antics..all the anger and endless scolds..That's it...A teacher's job...Never in my entire life did I ever imagine that I will be 1...The bond that I had with my students by all the nags, endless yells..I never felt so connected with them..I felt angry and sad and happy with them..

I remembered when I was in IPG and the lecturers asked why do u want to be a teacher..The most cliché answer is bcoz I like to teach..But for me, I DO like teaching...

Can u understand the joy of marking lotsa correct answers? Can u feel the dissatisfaction when ur students fail? I can bcoz I did..

Penah skalik ada dis 1 colleague said best mark paper bdk2 yg xpndai ni.keje pangkah n xyah mark pon (for objective paper)..for me---> TAK SUKE!!! Seriously xsuke..I pun mcm pelik napela hamba Allah ni leh ckp cmtu..If possible, I cari2 peluang nak bagi dorg lulus..hmm...tula..teacher pesan blaja xnak..mrh xsuke...pastu result trok...but then,some of them tak kesah pon..haih...

I won't trade anything for this..I thank Allah for this..Everything happens for a reason..Actually, I never think of the pahala by being a teacher. Memangla nak pahala tp sbnrnye xtrpk pon..I just felt happy doing this job..Sometimes,I did think..Wut happens if I studied harder? Wut happens if I was good in my history? I had bad results and I regretted it but it lead me to this..

God plans everything for us..It may be cruel and very heartbreaking but in the end,there's a silver lining...Seriously,guys..I don't know about the others but somehow, if I did make an impact in any 1 of my students' life..even a little bit..I'm very happy..Tak kesah la diorg xigt sape pon Teacher Juita ni..

May Allah SWT bless my student's soul..May she rests in peace..Nur Fadhilah bt Zaki passed away a day before Eid..She succumbed to leukemia at just the age of 16..I miss u a lot..

So,what is ur ambition? What was ur ambition?

Movie review ---> Fright Night (2011)

Fright Night (1985)
Today's post is a bit different from the other post. Okay la..totally different bcoz all the previous posts are about me,me and me. So, just a bit review and comment from a viewer..hehehe..Owh, btw I wanted to watch Final Destination 5 but then the movie is not shown anymore at GSC Sunway Carnival Mall so I settled for this movie. Few days before I watch the movie, there was this interview with the actors and director in the NST regarding this movie. Well,honestly I just like to see Colin Ferrell's muscular body,ok~~so yummy~~~~wakakakaka :p So from article, I know a bit wut to expect from the movie and it's actually a remake of Fright Night (1985).

Fright Night 2011
Ok, this movie is about this teenager who has a hot gf and hangs out with the popular kids.Mind u,he was a nerd and actually he is. It just happened that he wants to get over his nerdy times with his other nerdy frens..huhuh...Okla..nanti tak jadi review lak..jd tukang bgtau movie lak..huhu..So, one day he suspects that his neighbour is a vampire. So, this vampire is a hunky and handsome guy and well,he needs to eat.So, go figure,u guys..hehehe..

So,out of 5,i must say okla..I give 3.Not that frightening but it has lots of humor..hehe..seriously u guys..lawak gak la...but then I expect it to be more frightening. But of course there's some shocking moment. My mom siap menjerit lagi n obviously, I pon terjerit same :p

 Acting wise, Colin Ferrel is a yummy,sinister looking vampire..muke nakal gitu~ and the body?? soooooo HOT !!!! (ok,Juita...sedar diri,sedar diri...isk isk isk)

But then,seriously, tak takut..terkejut jek..I'm this kind of person that can be easily scared off..hello..gelap pon suke tgk citer yg takut2 tp penakut..So,when I watched the movie, my hand was in the position to cover my eyes (konon2 nak letak tangan kat dagu la tp jari nak ttp mata ;p) but then, none of the scenes managed to make me cover up my eyes well,except some 18++ scenes that I felt rather embarrassed to watch coz my mom was next to me.But then, this is just my opinion..Maybe some find it frightening. For me,it's just okay~not that frightening,some shocking moments,good CGI n lotsa funny moments.
