Assalamualaikum earthlings,

Happy Eidul Hajj! Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah
It's finally friday again. How we all love friday more than monday (or sunday) ay?

Friday is the best day of the week
to cut your nails
to make dua in between the khutbah and Friday prayer

Friday is the starting of rest week
time to relax
strolling in the city centres
cuddling in your duvet
or even diggin' in while watching movies

Whichever images we view Friday, we must remember that

"then did you think that We created you uselessly and that to Us you would not be returned?" (Al-mu'minun: 115)

Myself, often forgot and sometimes strays from the path that Allah has shown us.

Perhaps, this picture can serve as a gentle reminder to us, workers, students, housewives, husbands and all fellow human.

credit to whoever the artist is

p/s: let's not forget that each days/weeks/months and years, more and more of us remiss in our duty as His creations. Perhaps Surah Al Anbiya':1 will help you regain your utmost devotion to Allah. 

"The time of account  has drawn near, yet  they heed not and they turn away" 

Yes, so many of us are negligent. So do I. Hopefully each words and sentence that Zack writes or says today will stay.

For now "ADIEU"

Assalamualaikum amazing people :D

Winter is approaching. So, please expect nothing more than food food food. gawdddd.. like in the previous winter, my appetite is crazy. I lay my hand on almost every single food that I see. So not good. Anyway, let's skip the pathetic part and let me present to u the most beautiful thing for today..... *drum rolls*


I cant name it Cornish Pasty coz I'm not Cornish people. hehe. JK
Vege filling

I baked it upon request by my housemate, Nur Najihah. Jejiah, hope u enjoyed it:) 
So, let's get started. I hope u are as excited as me.:)

The crust:
2 cups of flour
2/3 cup chilled butter
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 teaspoon of salt

1. Cut the chilled butter into cube or whatever small shapes that u prefer.
2. Add the salt into the flour. then, mix the butter with it.
3. Mix them well until it becomes coarse crumbs
4. Add in the water little by little while kneading the dough. Shape the dough into round shape. Divide into two.
5. Give a sweep of olive oil onto the surface and keep it in the refrigerator for an hour or so

The filling:
I didn't really follow the recipe for the filling coz I used whatever I have in the kitchen at the moment.

Large onion
1 clove of garlic
Chillies (if you want to give it spicy taste)
-for these three, I used the leftover onions' mixture that used to cook lunch-
Olive or vegetable or any cooking oil
A carrot (diced)
A medium potato (diced)
1 medium large brocolli flower head (sliced into thin pieces)
2 mushrooms (sliced into thin pieces)

1. heat the pan and pour in an adequate amount of oil 
2. fry the onion+garlic+chillies till it is half-cooked
3. throw in the potatoes and let it be till half-cooked
4. Put in the remaining vegetable (just to saute them)
5. Give it a taste with a pinch of salt and some pepper.
6. Let it cool while we prepare the crust

1. Preheat the oven to 170 degree celcius
2. Roll the dough into 0.2 cm thick. no need to be a perfect round coz we are going to shape it into pasty later on.
3. Mix the filling that we cooked with a table spoon of double cream or soft cream cheese to give it a little bit of moist as a medium to further cook the vege as we bake it in the oven.
4. Place the filling at the center of the rolled dough. You can also add chedar cheese if you want. Fold it over and pinch & knit the edges of the dough to seal it. No need to be perfect.
5. Brush some milk or beaten egg to moisten the surface and to add some colour to it when it is cooked.
6. Poke little holes on the surface to let the steam out while it cooks
7. Bake in the oven for about 1 hour or until it is fully cooked.

Enjoy ur freshly baked pasty:)

*update: ouh! ouh! almost forgot. I sprinkled some mixed herbs on the pasty before it went into the oven:)

Feel sorry to this blog. No inspiration is one thing, lazy is another thing that I couldn't avoid. Not that lazy as in LAZY, but lazy coz there were lots of things happened in my life lately and it caused laziness.

Does that make sense?

owwwwkay, probably not :P

A misunderstanding happened today and it led to MORE misunderstandings. I was okay at first, but u know..lots of thinking changed thing from OK to NOT OK. :D

But today, it made me appreciate one thing. The friendship that I share with Farah Wahidah. Unlike other friends, Farah and I are truthful to one another (at least I know I did. :p). When we were housemates back then, I always went to her room or in the  kitchen and had a chat with her. I'd ask about her opinion of me. My weaknesses or anything that I did which hurt her. Then, she would tell me in the most gentle way and did not hurt me at all, other than appreciating her frankness, because it helps me to know myself and improve to the better.

Then, I'd tell hers. We did not only talk about our imperfections but also strengths. Of course, hearing compliments from her makes me appreciate myself even more and allow me to explore my strengths.
I think, she's the only person that I am totally totally totally able to be truly truly frank with coz she takes it positively and so do I. ummm I think, probably coz we can feel each other's sincerity? It's not that we were trying to fail one another...nahhhhh... (errr..right farah?:D)

"orang yang menunjukkan kebaikan kepada anda adalah sahabat yang baik. Dan orang yang menunjukkan kesalahan anda adalah sahabat yang paling baik"

I want you to know, I loved u even more when we did pillow talk back then. 

Rather than talking behind your back, I choose to tell you coz I know it hurts if you heard the same thing but from other people. 

hope u enjoyed the chocolate cake!
love u mate!^^
