Ho Ho Ho ...........

Time really fly so fast and soon we are going to end the year of 2007 BUT before that all of us are going to celebrate another happy and joyful festive - that is none other than Christmas. This is one of my favourite festive celebration.
Still remember when I were young, I used to follow my aunt and cousin to church. Last few days, I took out my photo album and that bring back some sweet memory. Those were days ............
During this Christmas season, I have got a few order for cupcakes and one of my favourite is the below one :-

A box of cupcakes that contain 16 pieces
Lovely angel rite?
Rudolph the red nose reindeer ......
Opps........... this is not a Christmas cupcakes but I made them for a friend of mine in conjunction with her birthday - I call this THE GARDEN OF ROSES. Apart from the fresh roses, I also place in some dried roses (the one where we used for drinking). So, when someone open this box, they will be able to have a nice smell of roses. So so so refreshing........................

National Service

Soon the new batch of youngster will be going for their National Service. Still remember the last time my youngest sister went for her training, all of us are so worried but after that we find out it's quite good too. Honestly, my sister loves it. She told us that she had learn a lot of things from there but there are also certain sad news that we hear from others camp. Anyhow, I think it's depends on the camp they go and the commander in-charge play a very important role. The one that my sister had at their Kem Millenium, Beranang is very strict. No hanky-panky stuffs are allow. In fact, there is a change in her when she came back. She had become more independent, more careful in things she do and more mature.
This are some memories that I still keep. Me and the family drove all the way to Beranang (in between of Selangor and Negeri Sembilan) to pick her back. We were quite shock to see the place. The campus is really very far far far inside.

This is my sister. See she so happy

They are going to miss one another

No matter what, she miss home the most. My son misses her alot too

Found some of this creature at the kampung. Have not seen this for very long time

Going into the camp. We have to pass by the village

The road is just enough for a car to go thru at one time

Wat will happen if another car come from another direction har? *faint*

2. I LOVE TO EAT - I enjoy going from one place to another to hunt for good food and later come back and try it out myself. Anyway, I don't like it in a big portion. Too big portion make the food look so cheap.

4. I LOVE TO WRAP GIFT IN SMALL SIZE - not that I am kedekut, ok? Sometimes, small gift could cost more than a big size gift. It's just because it look so cute.
5. I DISLIKE SHOPPING DURING SALES - silly lady, that is what you would call me, rite? Go ahead.

Hahaha..............
6. I LOVE TO COOK AND BAKE - yes, a person who love to eat will learn to cook and bake too. So, I will not go hunger mah. Anyway, one of the best way to the man heart is thru his stomach. Ladies, that is my advise - learn to cook, even simple dish.
7. I LOVE TO GO HOLIDAY BY THE BEACH OR HILL - living in the city is already very hectic so I love stay in resort/hotel that is near the beach or on the hill.
8. Finally, I AM IN THE MIDST OF COLLECTING AND WRITING SOME RECIPES. Hoping that in another 10 years I will complete and able to publish them. I know, I know 10 years is a very long time but I am so busy and to compile and re-do everything are not easy mah. One day, if you do see any recipe book by Erina Law, please support har?

Quick & Yummy Supper

We normally don't have supper but with my sister around at times she will ask me this, 'cheh wat can we have for supper har?' Aiyoh! Luckily she is not like my size otherwise sure have to stop her for eating supper. Hahaha............ Honestly, among the 3 sisters I am the one with bigger size. What to do? I can cook and bake better than them mah. Wahahahaha.........
Few nites ago, as usual my sister was asking me if I can make her some supper and I told her how about pasta with mushroom soup. She gave me a weird look and asking me will that be good. Want to ask me to cook lagi talk so much. That's it, whether she likes it or not it is going to be pasta with mushroom soup.

Boil some spiral pasta with hot water, oil and salt. Drain and keep aside.

Open a can of wild mushroom soup and pour it in the pan. Add 1/2 can of milk and let it simmer. Meanwhile, cut some sausages or luncheon meat and add it in the mushroom soup. You can also fried the sausage or luncheon meat first. It's depends on individual.

Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top and ready to eat. It really taste great. Yum yum............. My silly sister say she would love to have that again in a few days. Can!!!!! But cook herself. Since it's so simple, she can learn to do it herself, rite?

What Are A Chef To You?

I were on the phone with my friend few days ago and all of a sudden, we begin to bring back old stories about our working life in hotel. Ya, ya, ya! I am a ex-hotelier. Nothing to be hu-har about. Hotelier life is fun and also boring at times. But, what me and my friend were talking about that day is about the chefs. Yes, those CHEFS who think they are the smartest. So, what is a chef to you? And let me share with you what are a chef to us. I am going to make a very simple way of explanation.

To us there are many types of chefs. Here it goes :-
Ok! You might say that I am talking nuts here. All chefs can cook mah! You just read on. To us, cooking chefs means he or she can really do their work one - whom can cook deliciously and also having consistency all the time. A good chefs will know their ingredients well and able to accept customers criticism to improve themselves.

IT chef is a person who damn good in using his pc or laptop but cannot handle pan and pots properly. It's true. Don't underestimate this chefs. They can be better than any of us at anytime. What do a IT chef do? Apa lagi? Stick with the pc or laptop all the time lar. Ahem!!! Not that they are doing work with the pc but looking for some other interesting site. What else? Searching and looking at those humsap pictures lar. I no bluff you one. That is what 1 of the chef did when I were in his office. Lagi, he dare to tell me that girl got big boobsss wor........... What were my reaction? I f*ck him no time lar.

That is our favourite phrase to many chefs among me and my other colleagues last time. Why? Most of the time they will just sit down in the office and write and write. Don't know what they hell they write. Why we call them paper chef? Very simple, can write but cannot cook. That's simple. Not that they are busy planning or writing recipe but don't know what the hell they write also.

Ok. No deny men are born to be humsap. But being humsap also must have gaya and standard lar, rite or not? Sometimes, I find this chefs make men look so cheap. Sorry lar for saying that but it's so true. Eyes see, mouth also want to talk ok BUT hands also want to touch, that is too much liau leh. Some sales person who are ladies normally like to wear sexily to visit the chefs during their sales-call. That is purposely one lar. Then, some chefs will off look mah. Aiyah! Free one who don't look, I also will do the same lar. Afterthat, the mouth also open and begin his humsap talk. Later, pretend to put the hand on the should and raba raba. No deny, some sales girl allow that to happen. Why? Because they want to get sales lar. Even this humsap chefs also dare to disturb their own fellow colleagues one.

There are also chef who are 'chicken' with no balls. They will talk like a loud speaker in front of people but when problem comes, they cabut liau and don't dare to come out to face it. Who will get it? Off course the assistant and the rest of his team lar.

There are more but this are the quite famous one the we normally call them. To me most chefs had got very bad temper. It's true! In front of a customer they are damn so good but at the back of the kitchen ................ fly pan and pots lar. Sometimes plate also. At times, if they are not in the good mood, I pity the subordinate who kena f*ck with no reason. Also, most chefs cannot accept people comments and criticism. It's very very true. I have come across where I told the chef that my customers commented on the dishes and the answer given is, the food is like that already and we are not going to change. Ok lor! Don't change mah don't change lor. If GM ask, I will just answer like how the chef tell me only mah. Apart from that, chefs are very old-fashion at times. They can't accept new stuff. 1 example, have you eaten konnyaku jelly in a hotel? NO RITE? But everyone know about it and most properly our mum had been making it very often too. Chefs always think that they have a good food bible and that's it. They are going to follow it and not going to change. Come on! Technology are improving and so does food ingredients. That is why certain company wanted to hired foodtologist. For what? To improve lar.
Maybe, you could be a hotelier or a ex-hotelier. You can be a non-hotelier too. So, have you come across any chef that you know that have funny attitude that you wish to share?
Note : The above comments are base on my experience. Photos are taken from

My Earning ..................

Today, all of a sudden I go and kepo at Nuffnang to see how much I have earn so far (since July till now). Hahahaha............................ very paiseh to tell u all. Only enough to pay for a few friends to eat at hawker stall only. That also kena tekan break leh. How much???? Only RM37.21! Nuffnang will only make a payment when we reach RM50.00. That means I have another RM12.75 before I get to be paid. How long have to wait leh? Last time, I told my sister and hubby, if I got pay fast I belanja them makan. But looking at it now, they got to 'sek cee kei' (eat themselves). I have make my final decision. When Nuffnang pay me, I want to take this money to do charity. My first payment of RM50.00, I want to share it with others too. I know, I know. Some of you will laugh at me. What can RM50.00 do? How to do charity leh with RM50? Nevermind, laugh lor! I will figure a way to do it one. I so clever, sure can keh. Hahaha...................... So, for others what do you do with your first payment from Nuffnang or other advertiser? Share lar abit on your experience.

Mum's Hainanese Chicken Chop

Did I ever tell you that my mum is a mixture of Hainanese and Hakka? Yes, double H's! My mum is a great cook. During our younger time, we normally pack food to school. Everyday, we will have different type of food. See how lucky we are. Now, become the son-in- law lucky time pulak. WHY? I tell you hor...............
Anyway, my mum have only 1 son in law for the time being who is non other my foodholic hubby. Everytime, he will go to my mum and tell her , "ma, very long time no cook chicken chop liau hor or very long time no cook laksa" and his list goes on lar. Then, my mum will do it the next day or the following week when we go back. So, we had chicken chop last week. Her style is different. She will grill the marinated chicken before frying them. The shiok part is she use wood to cook this time. Alamak, like dad tarak beli gas stove itu macam but food cook by wood taste better one leh. Anyway, all of us enjoy the fun of preparing and off course the yummy food too. I don't know what is next he will ask mum to cook.
Any man want to register for my mum son-in -law. I still have another 2 sisters who are still available. 1 at late 20's and there other one is just 19 only. Quick quick quick! Hahaha...........

Hainanese Chicken Chop

Few weeks ago we went back to Taiping to visit my relatives. As usual whenever we are back there, we will go and hunt for food. What is new leh???? hahaha.................... 1 place that I will always try to drop by is this Hainanese Coffee Shop. I have been there since I am a little girl. My kong kong (paternal grandpa) loves to go to this coffeeshop for his afternoon tea. Last time, when we go there, we normally order the pastry but as I grow older I love to eat their chicken chop.
Every time when we make trip back to Taiping, hubby always want to drop by this coffeeshop for a plate of chicken chop and some tarts.

This is the Hainanse Chicken Chop

Yummy rite?

My little girl just love the chicken chop. If you ask me how about my son? Well!!! He is a pastry lover......

Restoran Yut Sun (it's very near to the road that have got lots of jewel shops)
Jalan Lim Tee Hooi, Taiping Perak
Close on every Sunday
Porks free. There are lots of Muslims who dine at this coffeeshop.

Jom Makan Kat Kampung ....

Whenever it's an off day or holiday, hubby will look and hunt for place to eat. He loves to eat and that give me a reason to learn to cook - to be a better cook! Hahahaha.......................

So, last Sunday hubby took us to this place near to Juru Light Industrial for lunch. Lunch in a Kampung (village)! It's was fun and nice. Food was good too.

Let me show you some pictures.

We choose to sit in a hut.

Overseeing the sea

It use to be 'paya bakau' and there are some small crabs. According to them, that is the maximum size of the crab. The funny part is, 1 side of the claw is big and the other size is very small.

Also lots of this fish and I do not know what are they called.

See the fish and the crab?
These are what we had order ................ Fried Kangkong
Looks very simple but it taste good. Lots of squid and prawn too.

Telur Bistri (if I am not mistaken). Fried Egg with minced chicken meat and with some sweet gravy. Recommended by the waitress. Tasty good also leh!

Ayam Masak Kicap

Ikan Masak 3 rasa (3 flavour fish) - sweet, sour & spicy. Should have called it 3's fish mah, rite? Fish is very fresh

Lastly, Nasi Goreng Kampung. There were lots of ikan bilis and squid in it. Taste yummy........

There were 4 adults and 2 kids - it cost us only RM80 include of 2 jugs of watermelon juice. Reasonable price. With the fresh and good food, it's worth that price. Infact, the serving were quite big too to feed us all. No doubt is not like a high-class restaurant but once awhile it's a good place to eat. Leaving in the city is already a hectic so at times it's great to go away to some quiet place to eat.

Both my kids just love it there and they were enjoying themselves so much.

We plan to go back again but this time for dinner because we want to try out their ikan bakar.

MORE TO COME.........................

Oh......... here come another weekend. Soon the year of 2007 will be over. What surprise me is today, L'abeille and XT drop by over at my shop. They are here coz XT grandma just pass away. My deepest condolences to XT and his family. Very nice couple!!! I love meeting people. That is the reason why I give up my job as secretary to join the hospitality industry as a PR. Talk non stop and meet different people from different part of the world. That give hubby a reason to say that I am a very talkative person.
Another thing ........... XT punya kereta, Nissan XTrail kena kick by a horse. YES, it's true. It happen near The Ship at Batu Ferringhi. I am not sure whether L'abeille will blog about it or not. Another it's not a good experience. So next time if we see horse at the roadside, please go far far har. Don't say I don't warn any of you. Anyhow, I also feel so sorry coz I did not have much time to catch up with her. Normally, during the weekend I am very busy - like a siew char bor (mad lady). hahaha................ nevermind, I trust there is always another time. My apologise to you, L'abeille.
I shall be writing more next week ...............................
