Country Bread

I love bread! hehehe [^_^] and love baking them too!
I have this country bread recipe for quite sometime and never got the chance to try baking them. So this is the 1st. \(^o^)/

It is quite easy because it is no knead bread. Yes you see it right NO KNEAD whatsoever is necessary! [^_*]

 So gorgeous isn't it?! hehe

My daughter loves to have apom for her evening tea. She will gobble everything up at a blink of an eye. hahaha. That is how much she loves them, and I love making things that she loves to eat...she's a very picky eater.

Just look how beautiful they've become!! hehehe (syok sendiri!)
Anyway, I've made these before using the same recipe:


  • Sugar      - 100gm
  • Egg         - 1
  • Ovallete  - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Vanilla    - 1teaspoon
  • Flour      - 100gm
  • Fresh milk - 150gm

  1. Beat sugar and egg until kembang
  2. Add ovallete and beat again
  3. Add vanilla and beat again
  4. Then add flour and milk bergilir-gilir.
  5. Steam in hot boiling water for 12mins.
p/s: to ensure that the apom kembang.. u beat sugar with egg white first until btol2 kembang like meringue then you add the yolk

Big cheer for DD! HOORAy!!

I've been meaning to write this quite sometime ago..but been busy attending the kids. They were down with flu, both of them! Aaaaaarrrgggghh!
Thats how it is with my kids. When 1 is sick the other tend to 'follow'. [^_^]. After they were done with it they transfered the virus to their dear mummy...sigh..always in that order. Last month was fever-flu-virus-attack month, so thats why the blog seemed to be 'dim' too. hehe

Anyway, the big cheer is  for my dearest daughter, she is now 100% potty train!.. Yeay! actually it is been 3 months already...since she started schooling, at 3years and 1 month old! Mama so proud of you kakak! Muuaaahhhhhs!! [^_^].

Perhaps some mothers out there would feel 3 years is a bit too late but to me, it would came down to your child readiness to be potty trained or not. Frankly, I've trained her at the tender age of 1++ ..yes very young, since the day she was able to speak and understand what I'm saying. She was successfully potty trained during the day at 2. So she was no longer wearing any pampers during the day..only the nights and during travelling. hehe.

Slowly but constantly. That is my motto. That is how to make it work and to ensure your success. But the key is to be constant. And that is the hard part. Because I am a frequent traveller from Bintulu-Jitra, so the contant matter is difficult to realise. I think if I can constantly train her, she can be successfully potty  trained earlier. Believe me, it can be done.

Mee Udang Made Easy

Homemade Mee Udang...
My hubby is very fond of noodle mee and kueteow especially... He is a  foodie.. [^_^]
Here in Bintulu its very hard to find such things... especially the halal ones plus sedap according to our tekak la. Coz sometimes we could noodle with the same name ... but when we got to taste it...!@#$%^&*..no comment there.. huhu.

So, while I'm here..everytime I crave something or my hubby would like to eat something we always refer to Mr. Google. hehe [^_^]

This time my hubby nak makan mee udang. So I got the resepi from here.
My hubby said it was not bad. I did made some alteration to the recipe since I dont have all the ingredients in my pantry. hehe

2nd time: everything in

1st time: with bwg goreng only...haha

Still tasted good..

Actually, Ive made this dish couple of times already.. but I dont have the time to post about it.. Been very busy lately.. With my 2nd kiddo throwing tantrums every other day.. huhu. part of growing up, hope its just a phase..(fingers cross) [^_^]
