Cornflakes Cookies

View all 9 photos...
I've baked this before... and after many trial and errors, many sufferings of my guines pigs, I've finally gotten a confirmed recipe, ya, yay! but guess what? I lost the recipe... PDA went dead when I went to London that time so a lot of my recipes gone. I've recovered the recipe (almost) but lost the notes on tips... and as I went thro my baking today, I've suffered a lot on setting the right temperature and timing alone... leave alone forgetting how time consuming it was baking cornflakes cookies. Unless the normal drop cookies (as in say chocolate chips cookies ala famous amos style) these cookies are individually coated with cornflakes before baking... not like roll-cookies-over-the-cornflakes coat, it's assembling-piece by-piece-on-to-the-tiny-cookies coat.

So the hours devoted into this ordinary looking cookies are:

Preparation of dough - half hour (prepared the night before)
Coating - 4 hours (!!!)
Baking - 15 minutes each batch

Total cookies made only about 200.... and I later remember I normally make the cookies in batches, which explained why I don't remember spending so much time baking cookies ever.

I hope they still taste as good, I will put a note in my recipe book to "warn" myself about the hours required, and most probably won't be baking this unitl next year

Chocolate Cupcakes

View all 5 photos...
New job had been extremely busy... noticed the huge gaps in my updating. It's just that I don't have pictures to be posted even though sometimes I might have the story, well, this is after all a photo blogging page and not a blog right? Anyways, Have been behind with my baking too due to lack of time trying to cope with new job, and being sick the last few weeks didn't help me progress either. Although I baked some chocolate cupcakes, it didn't mean that I was so free, in fact I was compromising sleep in order to be able to bake while trying my best to complete the presentation slides required...

Anyways, I've found a new bunch of people whom I can indulge. Many of my new colleagues, well, most of them my bosses (yes I got many bosses now) are chocaholic, so I decided perhaps it's time to bake the chocolate cupcake. I actually baked some plain vanilla cupcake the week before but they found the icing too sweet for them.

Saturday Day Out at The Curve

The Curve has became the happening place lately, it's a great place to hang out not to mention the surprisingly smooth access - not much traffic congestion getting to The Curve from my house in Cheras, it could have taken me longer if I were to go to KLCC. Only, it took me some time to get a parking space at the mall...

After putting my gym bag away at FF, I went to the bowling alley at Cineleisure, to cheer my ex-colleagues/ bowlers in their final round of tournament. The lane is not big, the whole place was taken by Gas Malaysia... Got a bit delayed at the bowling and missed body jam, but still get to do body step and combat, which suffice to say gave me enough "permission" to feast during dinner.

Dinner was at Little Penang, I joint them after getting supplies for my beloved baby at Pet's Safari. Ordered my all time favorite prawn mee. Elaine and I was really dieing for dessert - cendol or the red ruby... but since the idea was to adjourne somewhere else for dessert, we ended up at Starbucks and had cheesecake instead.

... and that's not the end...

Since the gang didn't get to watch movie, we went to Empress Cafe for another round of dessert! - love the place, tastefully decorated, but if the seating arrangement was more comfortable and cozy, it would have been prefect! Since I've already reach my "quota" for the day, I only had a glass of carrot juice, with perhaps a total of one spoon of cakes - food tasting only.

Arrived back home and only went to bed at 3am... nothing greater than hanging out with frenz that make you laugh a lot!

Happy Birthday Zaini

Happy Birthday Zaini
Bread pudding with ice cream!
View all 15 photos...

It's Zaini's birthday and gymfreaks were gathered at Nizar's for the makan-makan and celebration... We had loads of delicious food to eat as usual, combined efforts of the various master chef... the pictures of the food are not clear because I didn't put on the camera flash, but, the pictures of the bread pudding turned out to be exceptionally good.

The highlight of the event was Zaini in hot outfits... but no pictures allowed, so, those who didn't come, use your imagination lah . Oh, and since Zaini was still in one of those hot outfits, no pictures allowed during birthday song, making wish, blowing candle, cake cutting etc.......

I had a good labour day holiday, max-out workout at gym, yummilicious food, great company and full dosage of laughter!

Oh... found these uploaded pictures which were unpublished... too busy to write up the story board for these pictures I think, that's why it was not published yet... but since it's uploaded, might as well publish them - since I haven't got any new pictures and stories yet.
