♥...A Bunch of Roses from Secubit Garam...♥

Image
Yeeeeeehaaaaaa!!! I got roses...I got roses!!!

It came all the way from Terengganu...from Kak Nor @ Secubit Garam! She has one lovely blog with huge collection of finger lickin' good dishes! I knew Kak Nor even before I started blogging via Myresipi. We shared good rapport until now. I always consider her as my 'sifu'! Still remember I was asking so much questions about puddings. Well...I was a newbie then.

I mistakenly thought that I was following her blog all these while. Her blog was always in my bookmark list and also at my bloglist. Thus, I found out while checking some stuffs at my blog dashboard yesterday. I was listing down every blog that I follow and happened to find her blog was missing in my reading list! I jumped into her blog to click on follow, but what a miracle!!!! I happened to be her 1000th Follower!!! That's so cool na...

In conjunction with this, she has gifted me a lovely bunch of roses! Thank You so much Kak Nor!!! I'm really happy to have kn…

Baked this cake some time back and I completely forgotten to post it! How could that be??? I saved the images into another folder of mine by mistake...hehehe! Luckily I found it now...

Still remember I baked this cake in a real rush. Was busy with something else at that time...can't remember what though!

Recipe is from my dear blogger friend...Kak Dayang Jack! She is one of my long time friend in blogging world, as well as my blog's first follower! She loves to cook and bake various type of cakes.

♥...Days & Nights at The Legend International Water Homes, Port Dickson...♥

Image
Hi friends, how U all been? All good I hope...some might be very busy with Christmas tomorrow na. So here am wishing A Merry Christmas to all my blogger friends, readers including silent ones and fellow followers! Ho ho ho!!!

Well, today I'm gonna share some photos of our recent holiday at The Legend International Water Homes in Port Dickson. This was our second visit to the hotel. We first went there during my hubby's last break. And we decided to go again on his next break, which we did! So, what has been pulling us to the hotel again and again? There's no beach to swim around though the villas are on the sea.


It's actually the private pool every villa has! Yeah my kids just loved the pool, so do me and hubby. We've been inside the pool much longer than the bed! We spent our days and nights in the pool. It's so private that U'll forget the time!

We spent 3 days 2 nights at the the lower unit of Grand Pool Villa this time. Facilities were so satisfyin…

♥...Yoghurt Mutton Curry...♥

Image
Mutton is my second favourite dish after chicken. Made some curry this time using plain yogurt. The curry was much creamier and of course it tasted yummy! Hehehe...

As usual, I made the curry a little thicker too...

♥...Friday Food Review ~ Lemon Butter Cake...♥

Image
Like I told you before, I simply love butter cakes...the more original is alway the best.

Of late, I've been baking butter cakes quite regular. Just trying out all the recipes I found on net. This also helps me to clear my loooooooong bookmark list.

Butter cake with a cup of tea or coffee is always perfect. And a Lemon Butter Cake is nothing the less. Gosh, I baked this cake twice already now! Tastes so yumm and delicious. Glad to see my family enjoyed the cake..me too!

Thanks a bunch to Sonia@Nasilemaklover for sharing her recipe. The original recipe has lemon glaze, but I skipped it. The cake alone is super duper yummy! Again, I did not wait for the cake to cool before slicing, that's why you can see lots of crumbs on the plate. Gonna bake this often for sure...

Sonia, please allow me to C&P the recipe here for future reference.
