Congo Bar Recipe.

Assalamualaikum . 
A friend of mine loves to ig her Congo Bar making me excited to try one. Since I do not know where to buy, decided to bake one.
But , I reserved my comment because I have not tasted it before.

For my own reference next.
2 & 2/3 cup of flour added to it 2&1/2 tsp baking powder & 1/2 salt. Stir and set aside.

Softened 2/3 cup or 150g butter mix with 300g brown sugar.add 3 eggs one by one.mix well. Add flour mixture to it slowly. Add 200g choc chips & choc chunk. 

Bake in 170 Pre heated oven for 30 mins. Since I used the cake tray, so my duration of baking was increased to 50 minutes.
Alhamdulillah .. Not bad.. But not very good. 
Enjoice.

Ps: kids request for teddy bear cookies but successfully distract them because I really wanted to try this. Next time kids.

Saturday

Peace Saturday Nasi Arab.

Assalamualaikum.
We had a fruitful today . 
What it meant to me was I did cooking at my IL, as it was rare.. Repeat, rare to me.

Mother gave me spice mixture for 'nasi arab' the other day for free. The recipe was also attached to the package. Just follow the simple steps and your nasi Arab will be ready! Cook the mixture with chicken/meat till 70% cook, then add in rice. Mix and put salt into it. Lastly, put all in rice cooker , add some water and let it cook!

I divided into 2, 500g each. The first batch I use chicken. And today we did with mutton( as per requested- rm18/kg).

P/s: the nasi Arab was not included in the picture.
The salata  includes; chillies , tomato, onion, lime and saltsugar.
The salad; cucumber, carrot, tomatoes and dressing with saltsugar lime.
The drink; mandarin sunquick with lime juice.

Salam. 
After a short Homestay simple breakfast we
continue day 2.

Another a must visit.
Kea Farm.
We love to buy fresh vegetables and strawberries
here.

There were a lot of offers by the strawberry seller.
Just pick which one you like.

I did buy a pack of big ones , rm13/ pack.
To my surprise it was sweet!

There was this one souvenir shop by the roadside we went each visit. And bought few things there. For the kids.

Salam.
We had dinner at Tanah Rata. 
The place was not bad at all.
I noticed there were variety of food sold there.

There was steamboat too, but being villager, we go 
for nasi.

Nearby, there were few outlets selling souvenirs. We had to buy socks for the kids as the weather was extra cold. Due to the rain of course. 
The kids again bought animal designed caps . Number three initially chose cow but later on changed to tiger!

 At ten pm we called it a day.

It is a new place.
We went before going to the night market on day 1.
We tried the so long wanted Scone there.
Do not laugh, it was my first time.
And I think it was just nice. 
We had combo rm16 included cheese cake, scone,
and two cups honey tea.


The place got two food outlets, souvenir's 
Shops, strawberry park, vege stalls and washrooms..

The only minus point was the exit way was very
steep. Be careful. 

Night Market in Cameron Highlands.

Salam.

It was our first time visit to the night market.
Of course the most excited were the kids.
They got robot. At rm10.
Also blanket. Rm10/piece.

Bought tshirts as souvenir to my number 4.
The interesting thing we found was "kelapa 
Laut" fruit. I think its texture is similar to buah
Tal. It cost rm2 for the drink and rm5 
For a fruit. 

The drink made by boiling the fruit with 
sugar.

One of our favourite Shop in Cameron Highlands. 
I fancy the place very much.
There were so many pretty plants, be it flowers cactus etc.
The kids just love that place.
You know why.

They loved the ride of course . Who does not?

I recommend you readers to buy tea and such here as
I find it cheaper than others.

The strawberry coffee for example sold at rm11.90
while at the other stall it cost rm15. Wow..
And, if you are not that detail, you might be
buying the not original one. 
Be careful.

Salam.
Our first time was few years ago.

And this time around, since my kids are big enough, we decided to do this activity.  We went to Kea Farm Cameron Highlands. We paid rm80 for 6 of us with the kids . 

We were given chance to pick 2.5kg strawberries. The tips is: pick the bigger strawberries because they are sweeter!.  The kids were so happy themselves.




Saturday

Salam readers.
After having lunch at the Homestay, we headed to
Kg Taman Sedia. Initially we thought that
 we can pick our own strawberry there . To our disappointment 
it was not allowed there. We decided to get
Strawberry ice creams.. For rm2/pack, it was 
nice. This place ( I forgot the name) located
nearby kindergarten and playground if you would 
like to try. 

We had to be quick as it was raining towards
The evening.

Dnaz Homestay / Cameron Highland Trip
 2013. 

Salam again.
We stayed at dnaz Homestay located in 
Tanah Rata Cameron Highlands. For 
rm220, per night, it was a brilliant decision.

There were 3 rooms with 2 toilets, kitchen and 
living room. There were extra mattress too.
There was no air conditioner. Haha.
And there was shower with heater.


However, it was at the 4th floor, not suitable 
For those with OA .

For us, during the peak season with such price, I think it was with 
it.

If any of you interested, just google this Homestay.

Takoyaki home made by bbf.

Salam readers.

Takoyaki made with love from my bbf. 
I feel very fortunate to have such a kind workmate. She graduated from Japan u. 

I used to learn Japanese back then in high school as our optional language. The other choices were Arabic and French. I had attended interview to further my studies in Japan however I did not make it.

Back to Takoyaki . 
She prepared all by herself. Very delicious! As per picture below. 
I never tried any before.
So I could not imagine the taste. 
It was very tasty, I tell you"
The ingredient 100% from Japan. 
I like it, so do the kids. 

I hope she will make more Japanese food for me. Ahaks..

Trip to Cameron Highlands 2013 / Part 1; RnR Gua Musang.

Assalam readers.

Trip to Cameron Highlands 2013.
September 2013.
The plan was totally from the kids and their dad. After we went to the beach earlier, kids request to go on holiday on the hill. In addition their newly wed uncle also would love to join.
The booking was 100% by their dad.
I managed to capture this signboard as a proof to our cousin. Even we did not have the chance to pay a visit, we just visited the signboard only 'lah' .
At about 11 am , we reached this RnR Gua Musang. There were a lot of people there since it was a long weekend and they were going to the same destination . I thought I saw my auntie's friend there, a teacher accompanying bunch of school kids on a bus trip.

My nĂºmero uno posed for my camera( built in).

The princess on a swing. In her own fantasy world.
This brilliant little boy and his favourite spot.

And my number four.. I adore this one. Don't you?

I always wanted to spend a short holiday there with MokMoh's clan. We did plan.. A lot, but still on the way to success. Hoping that maybe next year we can go to.. Hmmm at least KK , bah.. To ciktiey's.. Hehe.

Pantai Perkasa, Bachok.

Pantai Perkasa Bachok is One of those attractive beaches in the East Coast Malaysia. 
30 km from Kota Bharu city. 

It was a last minute plan. 
Mother prepared " bubur durian".
Then they bought nasi bungkus & meehun.

#4 enjoyed the sand so much.

These photos were taken before going to AbahYa's house. We met the rest of MokMoh's clan there. We did not manage to go to Opah's house this year as we rushed to Mama's. 

I noticed that we do not have much time as before.. It has to be shared between two important families.

However, every year is special. This year too has its own speciality..(without ciktiey around?.. Hehe)
