Playground time!


Maryam enjoying while Rayyan looks sleepy



Excited (or nervous? ) to go down the slide

Swing

Enjoying the fresh air

Hoping that we'll have the time again for playground. Ummi normally arrives home about 6.30pm after work, which is quite late to go here. InsyaAllah, ada rezeki kita main playground lagi ya!

Darlings in my heart! Happy birthday to both!

Since Ayah will not be around today and for the whole week, we decided to celebrate advance birthday dinner yesterday night. Great dinner @ Secret Recipe BJ although Maryam was a bit cranky and sleepy before we arrived. Alhamdulillah!

Happy birthday to Maryam Safiyyah & Ayah!

Mattel Warehouse Sale is back!

The most awaiting warehouse sale for toys is now back! Yup, it's Mattel Warehouse Sale. Same place like previous years. If you really have something to buy for your kids especially the Fisher Price products, my advise is please come early as early as you can. You'll be surprised with the crowd outside the building before it is actually opens. Otherwise, you'll a bit regret with the items left.

I'm not going this year, same like previous year. Hehe..Have nothing in mind to buy. If I just want to just have a look of the event, I'm just looking for trouble. I might end up buying something that is not necessary! This time around is time to save money! But, based on my experience before, it is worth going especially the Fisher Price products. Some items are discounted more than 30%! Hypermarket like Jusco or others normally has discounts max is up to 20% discount. So, wait no more! You have 2 days left! Enjoy!

Dora @ iCity


Dora, the Explorer famously known among the kids is here in Malaysia. She'll be in i-City today, 19th Mar in conjuction with the opening of Snowalk @ i-City.

But, no..we are not going there tonight. To those who are interested to go, you still have time to be there as there is another session, 8.30pm tonite. We are thinking of going there actually since Maryam also likes Dora, but on second thought, we better not. The traffic must be horrible plus the weather is so gloomy and there'll be crowded with soooo many people. As we've been there before, i-City always full of visitors even though there's no such event. But, maybe I'm wrong.

As per earlier news in the local paper, the fees is RM25 (Adult) and RM20 (children). And I heard, there's an entrance fees upon parking i.e. RM10 for parking. Is it true?

Anyhow, enjoy your day if you happen to be there tonite. =) 

Learning to write...write and write =)

She was really excited when  she knows how to write properly. I meant when we understand what she letter she wrote and picture she's trying to draw. Before this, she just scribble and doodle either on a piece of paper or on the doodle pro board.

Full of circles. Small or big version
Trying to write a complete word ::Fisher Price::
Hope she's not getting bored with writing and keep on practising and learning, insyaAllah. And most importantly, only to write on paper dear, not on the wall. Huuhuhu...

Ummi...sunyum..

Her current obsession now - my handphone. Yup, she just loves to use the camera!

She will take the phone and turn the camera on and then..." Ummi...sunyum!"

She even likes to take her own photo, all by herself!


Taking her own photo
Not just that, she will snap a photo of every single thing in the house! I only realised it when I couldn't open the photo gallery due to full memory!

Mascarpone...

Another entry related to the latest trial and error of making the tiramisu. Alhamdulillah it turned out well and was hoping to make it for the second and third time insyaAllah since there are many finger biscuits left.

The first time I had the taste was way back in 2003-2004. It was made by K Lin, during my uni days. I really like the taste and we always asked for more from her..hehe..But, this time was the first opportunity that I have since it is quite difficult to get the mascarpone cheese. And it's quite pricy too! Yes, I know that you can get the cheese easily but it's difficult to get the Halal one.

But, Alhamdulillah I managed to find one after googling for it. It's CreamofCreams. As per stated in the web, you can get it either in Tesco, Giant or Cold Storage. I wasn't lucky enough as I couldn't find any during my visits to a few of Giant branches. But, I found it at Cold Storage at one visit! Alhamdulillah. Since I know it is quite difficult to get it, I've bought 6 boxes of 250gm each! Heheh...Did I say that, it is very much cheaper than other brands. It's just RM11.99 in comparison with the imported one; RM 25.99.

Mascarpone Cheese; main ingredients in tiramisu
Since there were 2 boxes left, I'll be making a tiramisu again for the third time. We'll see when is the right time..eheh.. =)

Step by step..

Here's what you need to make a tiramisu.

Finger biscuits (Use as much that you want =) )
120gm sugar
4 Eggs
500gm Mascarpone Cheese
1 cup of warm strong coffee
Some cocoa powder

(1) Beat the egg yolk & sugar until it is pale & thick
(2) To make it more tasty, don't forget to smile while beating the mixture =)

(3) Mix the mascarpone cheese with the mixture and beat until it is really thick and looks yummy.

(4) On the other side, beat the white egg & a pinch of salt until it is pale and thick.
(Sorry, no picture for this step..huhu)

(5) Then, mix together the mascarpone & the white eggs and beat it well.
(6) Beat until it looks like this =)

(7) Dip the biscuits into the warm coffee and arrange it as you wish

(8) Put the mixture of the cheese onto the biscuits. Cover it up as thick as you wish
To make it a double layer tiramisu, arrange the biscuits on top of the cheese mixture as per step 7
(9) Then cover the biscuits again
(10) Last but not least, put some cocoa powder / coffee powder on top of tiramisu and it's done!
But, before you can it, it's best to refrigerate it for about 4 hours.

There are many others tiramisu you can find in the internet. This is just the simple tiramisu recipe. Try it yourself.
