What kind of breakfast are you?

You Are Cereal
Playful and lighthearted, breakfast is likely
your favorite meal of the day.

(In fact, you're probably the type who sneaks
cereal as a midnight snack.)

Your culinary skills are probably a bit lacking...
and you are a sucker for junk food.

Some people accuse you of eating like a kid,
but you prefer to think of
yourself as low maintenance.

Unprofessional Photo Session


It's time for my little boy to register for primary 1 this year.
He was born in year 2004.
He really had grown so much.
When first born, he was only 3kg plus and now already reach 20kg plus!
And he's only 4 yrs & 4mths old. Man...huge right.
I can't carry him for more than 5 mins now.
Yesterday morning I bring him to take photo for registration purposes,
but the refuse. And I was really upset.
So, I decide to DIY in the afternoon after he back from kindergarden.
My boy was really cheeky, can't even stand still.
Here are some rejected pics.

Enjoy....

Listen to this song from radio this morning.
Find it very touching and think back of my life from birth until now,
I really have not been 'offering' to those around me.
Sad to think of it...
Hope you all find this song meaningful and can enlighten you all life from now on.

我的爱人
白云奉献给草场
江河奉献给海洋
我拿什么奉献给你
我的朋友
我拿什么奉献给你
我不停的问
我不停的找
不停的想
白鸽奉献给蓝天
星光奉献给长夜
我拿什么奉献给你
我的小孩
雨季奉献给大地
岁月奉献给季节
我拿什么奉献给你
我的爹娘

Have you ever...

Have you ever get a message, to 'date' you on
what time and what date,
but in the end,
on the actual date and time,
the person who made the 'date'
did not show up,
or call,
or msn,
or sms.....???

I was
assuming,
maybe you forget,
maybe you are busy,
maybe...
maybe...


I was like thinking,
maybe it was just my 一厢情愿。

But we'd known each other for so long,
and yet...I'm speechless,
wordless...


But I was upset.
REALLY upset.
I cancel all my appointment,
just for you.
And you do this to me...
WHY..???


This is not the first time.
Many many times already.

I really hope that,
next time,
when you don't mean it,
don't ever say it out,
想也不要!


This just makes me think,
I'm not important to
U!

And I hate it!!

Nak satu?? hehe...
Sorry I finish it just now.....



I had some left over pau flour, so early this morning I've decide to make
some pau for my family for breakfast.

Here's the recipe:



Basic Pau Ingredients:

500 gm pau flour
1 packet of mauri pan brand yeast (approx 10 gm+-)
100 gm castor sugar
50 gm crisco/shortening
230 gm/ml water

Pour all ingredients into bread maker and used mode 11 and let it knead for 20 minutes.
Take out and divide into 35 gm each and cover with clean cloth and let it sit for 10 minutes
Roll out each dough flat and wrap in filling.
Cover with a cloth and let it proof for another 15 minutes.
Steam in rolling water for 15 minutes.


Filling:

RM5.00 minced pork
1 stalk spring chinese leak
light soya sauce
pepper

a little corn flour
