Cream Puff with Custard Filling Attempt #1

I have been trying to make some easy to go snacks so that the boyfie can bring to work or munch at home. Now that he is not working anymore, I am going easy on that. Anyway, if I were to make anything this week, I have him to do it with me. Baking alone can be quite tiring especially if you have one medium-sized oven and you need to make many batches. If your oven is huge then it's okay cause you can put a few trays at one time.

Back to the cream puff story, I got the recipe from a friend's facebook (Lily) and jumped onto the task right away (after months of procrastinating) without really research on a proper steps and stuff. So that's my first mistake. Second mistake was that I did not look up for a yummilicious custard filling first. Will work on that. I just googled for another recipe and you can follow this recipe as well. =)

So this recipe is really pretty easy

Ingredients you need
For the pastry
250 ml milk (can be replaced with water)
85g butter (or margarine)
160g flour - sifted (I used super fine flour but I think normal wheat flour will be okay)
4 eggs
1/2 tsp salt (omit if you are using salted butter)

1. Heat water (milk), salt and butter to a rolling boil; reduce heat. Tip in the flour and stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms into a ball, about 1 minute.
2. Remove from heat. Add in the eggs, one at a time while beating until dough mixture is smooth.
3. Heat oven to 200 degrees Celcius or 400 degrees Fahrenheit
4. Use rounded teaspoonfuls (or tablespoonsfuls, depending on the size you like) or a piping bag to make mounds of dough set about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. I made smaller ones.
5. Bake puff until they are puffed and golden brown. About 20-30minutes and let it cool.
6. Slit each puff halfway and put in custard filling.

** Reminder: Do not take the puff out to check on them or switch off the oven before it is well cook, otherwise it will collapse. Happened to mine. =(

Custard Filling
3 egg yolks
200 g sugar (adjust the amount to your preference)
750 ml milk
20 g flour (1 1/2 tbsps)
20 g corn starch (1 1/2 tbsps)
1/2 tsp vanilla

1. Beat yolk and sugar until white. Pour in milk bit by bit while mixing until sugar is melted.
2. Put in flour, cornstarch, vanilla and mix until smooth.
3. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture boils and is thick.
4. Cool before putting into puffs.

I did not follow this custard filling recipe cause my friend did not put custard filling and I don't know how to make it. So I randomly put custard powder and sugar and water and make into very rich yellow cream. Not as nice. Just found this and I'm all excited to make cream puffs again now.

A letter on Friday

I've been reading a few blogs (read : here, too lazy to find another example) and I noticed that they usually write like a letter of gratitude or something, whether to people or things to sum up their weekdays before stepping into weekends and I find that an awesome idea so I am going to write mine too, to show gratitude and give thanks to God for all He has done the whole week.

taken from Pinterest; source: unknown

The boyfie
Thank you for enduring my mood swings and frequent break downs. My 'what ifs' and whining. My late start of the morning and laziness. For pushing me to get my things done although I don't usually show my gratitude to that. For supporting me in whatever I do and telling me that I am so much better and that I can do everything I set out to do.

The fam
Thank you for always helping me to get my things done (read: secret) and making my weekends more colourful. Thank you for being weekend escapade and supporting me in all I do. Thank you for bringing laughter into my life and for sponsoring me all the time. <3

The gram
Thank you for the good recipes that you passed down. Your granddaughter can cook a few dishes too! Thank you for being so cute and funny without knowing it. Thank you for folding all the clothes so nicely but I failed to master that skill yet.

The girls
Why our Marshall's burger date tak jadi? Make it work alright? Will probably head down and try them this weekend if the boyfie is up for it. Miss you girls. Thank you for all the crazy things we do and all the crazy things we will do in future to come.

Dissertation topic
Y U NO COME UP WITH IT YOURSELF? It's not easy and I am trying (or maybe I'm not). I will do it. Soon! Soon!

Amazing Race Season 20 (2012) *Spoiler Alert*

So the boyfie and I have been watching Amazing Race Season 20 which just ended about two months ago. We have been watching it for 11 nights (since there's 11 episode with the last one featuring Leg 11 and 12). We have also concluded that we will never join Amazing Race together because

#1, I am very timid and have no guts
#2, I have no sense of direction
#3, I have no stamina whatsoever
#4, I have low tolerance of pain
#5, I am the worst person to be in a competitive situation together because the boyfie and I quarrel over nothing at all every day, what more under such pressure.

I have also concluded that I will be worst that Rachel of Rachel and Brendon and we will fight far more than any contestant you have ever seen.

Anyways, the boyfie and I root for different teams. More like he doesn't root for any team but he is particularly harsh on a few girls in the show.

He dislikes Rachel of Rachel and Brendon because she cries all the time. On the other hand, I think it is perfectly normal to cry. Different people releases stress differently and not everyone is as strong as Vanessa in enduring pain and not everyone is as cool as Rachel of Rachel and Dave to laugh everything off.

I've been reading online about how Rachel of Rachel and Brendon is always crying, they are always fighting, they shouldn't get married and have kids and everything. But I think these people are just being harsh and judgmental just because they are at home happily typing away. The point is, they stayed together. I think cause I am as emotional and bad tempered as Rachel, I can understand it. Although sometimes she gets on my nerve cause she gets demotivated for no reason and allow people to overtake her.

Rachel of Rachel and Dave on the other hand is ever so cool. I like how she is much stronger (mentally) compared to Dave and she makes every tasks seems easy. Dave is very negative and is always hard on her. With all that negativity, she occasionally say things like "You are the most negative person I've ever met" (agreed) or "How do you know that?" when he says that they are not gonna win. She is very positive and calm in doing the challenges and I believe she is the strong backbone to Dave which won them the $1 million dollars. She never gives up, tries her best under negative reinforcements by her husband whereas when she tries to give encouragement to her husband, all she got was, "I appreciate silence." Or "silence is golden". I don't particularly favor Dave but I love Rachel cause she is pretty and always smiling. Without Rachel, Dave would never have won.

Vanessa is pretty and she is not just what you see on the outside. She can really tolerate pain and she pushes herself. Although she can be mean to Rachel from Rachel and Brendon but she can be nice as well. I do believe they deserve to be in the top 4.

As you can see, I did not say anything about Art and JJ yet though they are in the 2nd place because I don't like JJ. He is a baby, he whines, he has more feminine side that he knows, yet he feels that he is superior to others. Confidence is one thing, but when you are over-confident, it eats you up. Seriously. He was saying the 'Big Brothers' are always following him and all that. Well, I was telling the boyfie, at least they are close enough to follow (I may be bias, I did not say I am not). Seriously, give people some credit for the things they have done. If they are that weak and lousy, I don't think they'll be in top 4. You have to give credit where it's due. Perhaps because the Big Brothers are always so near them and just a few slots behind them, they felt threatened. They said they want to keep the top 4s as they themselves, Vanessa and Ralph, Bopper and Mark and Rachel and Dave. However, when Rachel and Brendon did not take the Fast Forward (which needed them to shave their head), JJ was making so much noise about how Bopper and Mark would have taken it and now they have to fight for the final spots and all. The truth is, you don't think you are strong enough to win the two other teams (or at least you have your reservation) and you don't care who goes home as long as it is not you. Then stop talking about Dave and Rachel not keeping to their promise to keep the 4 teams to the final 4. He was harping and complaining about how Rachel of Rachel and Brendon is too chicken to cut her hair, she doesn't deserve to be here and all. Well, she fought her way to win you in that Leg and then fought to keep herself in top 3. So enough of talking. He whined about Rachel of Rachel and Dave as well. Of how it must be her idea to not Fast Forward because he trusts Dave. Hello~ If you are truly great man of God, stop looking down on women. You have to give credit to them for doing better in some things. Don't whine on how it is more women tasks than men's when you lose and how strong is your team when you win. Man up and stop being such a sore loser.

Ok, enough ranting.

=P All in all, I love this season of Amazing Race. And all these are purely personal opinions. *wink* Been reading lots of their interviews online when I should be doing my work. Go google their name and you'll get to read lots of interviews. =)

Tips to prepare easy meals

I am always cooking for myself in the afternoon and for the boyfie and I for dinner. It is not easy to cook wide array of food choices when there are only the two of you so I usually cook more to be kept for the boyfie's lunch to work the next day. Anyway, from my cooking experiences, the easiest are:-

1 person
1. Soup with noodles.
You can cook soup enough to last for dinner or just simple minced meat with vege soup. It is so much healthier than cooking instant noodle all the time and yet is is as easy as instant noodle. Just make sure you have supply of minced meat or chicken breast (healthier) in the fridge and some vegetable. Usually I will just cook the soup enough to serve as a dish for dinner as well to save time. Also always keep a variety of noodles (dried ones) in the storage. For minced meat soup, add in tong chai (a type of preserved vegetable) - as per picture, it makes a whole lot difference.

2. Fried rice
If you have leftover rice, simply fry the rice with anchovies (another great item to keep), prawns, vegetables and egg. Add in some onions and garlic. It makes the fried rice more fragrant. If you do not have prawns, it is okay as anchovies are great too. You can add pork or other meat other too. I've been having lots of fried rice too.

3. Sandwich
Bread, lettuce, tomatoes, tuna or eggs and you are good to go. Always my favourite healthy quick fix when I have bread supply. I rarely have bread supply though so lots of noodle soup and fried rice for me. Sandwich can never go wrong. Drop a dallop of mayonnaise into your tuna! Less healthy but so much more yummy. Also keep a bottle of mustard if you like mustard. AWESOME!

4. Porridge
Other than fried rice, when you are VERY lazy, just add some water into the rice and boil it to make porridge. Add in vegetables and minced meat. Add soy sauce and pepper to taste as well. But it is soooo extremely easy, not making healthy lunch is not an excuse.

So for healthier meals, do keep supply of fresh food like meat and vegetables! Usually for easy dishes for two, I will upload the recipe as well but these ones I don't. =)

Penang Bazaar Ramadhan 2012

I am trying to collect information on bazaar Ramadhan here in Penang because we all know how much Malaysians love food. It has just been 5 days since they started fasting so not much photos online or information online on where to find bazaar Ramadhan. People fasted whole day, we are the ones excited to go find food. =P

From past experience, I know relatively a few places but will continue searching. At the meantime, check these places out.

1. Pasar Ramadhan at Tanjung  Tokong Malay Village. Although CK Lam from what2seeonline.com blogged about this place 2 years back, I think it is still there because it has been there for years!!! It is situated somewhere opposite Tesco Tanjung Pinang. There are plenty of small Malay villages over there so I supposed you can find fairly good bazaars there.

2. Queens Street. I've found an article on this food bazaar in Queens Street and according to another blog that I stumbled upon in my 'research' which was written a good 7 years ago, the food bazaar in Queens Street sells more 'Mamak' (Indian Muslim) style of food with lots of Indian cuisine's influence. A good change perhaps? Although that post was written 7 years ago, the article by the Star shows that this bazaar still exist. Whether it is the same, I am not sure, let me know if you go there. There are also pictures from last year in Facebook.

3. Jalan Makloom, parallel to Jalan Sungai Pinang. Another place recommended by what2seeonline.com which was written 2 years ago. Hopefully it is still there. No harm trying! Look at the pictures, it makes people drool.

4.  Bazaar Ramadhan at Bayan Baru. Another post from last year in http://abekamil.blogspot.com showed that there's a bazaar at Bayan Baru.

5. A friend told me that there's a bazaar near Sunshine Square which this blogger is referring to. Her post is 2 years old but bazaar does not simply run about you see. They are often at the same place every single year unless they gradually move or new bazaar mushroomed over the years in new places. According to this blogger, it is at Lintang Mayang Pasir which is near Sunshine Square.

Will keep updating. Hopefully tonight the boyfie and I managed to go to the pasar malam opposite Teluk Bayan Food Court and buy some food since they are fasting and most of the yummy food we want are from the Malay sellers. AWESOME FOOD THESE PEOPLE. <3 Till then.

Starting from Scratch

I started my blog at www.ahbu74.blogspot.com about 6 years ago with a haze post. After blogging hard for 6 years, I managed to get some people reading my blog and get daily hits of a pathetic 50-70 people (whether they read or what I am not sure since I was not blogging for about a year). After my transition period of moving from being a degree student to work a little and then back to Masters student, I figured that I need to change my blog link as well. I have long outgrown that blog that I used to write in. So I moved. At the same time, many of my buddies who were once blogger stopped too (Read: Jen, Swee Win) while some slowed down (Shan Shan, Diana and a few others).

If you think 50-70 ghost readers are pathetic, now I have only 7 readers a day. T_T I am not even sure if it's just me keep coming back to check on my sidebars to see if any bloggers updated. So yes, I am starting from scratch but hopefully one day, I'll build a castle out of it.

Korean Pancake - Pa Jun

As I cooked the stew and do not want to overpower the taste of the stew with other main dishes, I decided to go all Korean and googled for Korean pancake recipe. I needed a fast dish as the boyfie is coming back and I still need another dish to make it presentable on the table (some freak who cannot just eat stew and rice cause she wants to impress the boyfie). Anyways, I hurriedly googled for Korean Pancake and decided to make a carrot one as I do not have any scallion (scallion pancake are one of the famous Korean Pancake).

Got my recipe from http://koreanfood.about.com/od/vegetarianrecipes/r/Scallionpancake.htm
  • 2 cups flour (I anyhow used wheat flour and anyhow estimated my two cups)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1.5 cups water (I added water until I feel it is watery enough)
  • 1 bunch of scallions, halved and cut into 2-3 inch lengths (I replaced this with carrots)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Oil for cooking


  1. Mix all ingredients together and let sit for about 10 minutes. Check consistency before cooking – batter should be a little bit runnier than American pancake batter, so that the Pa Jun cooks quickly and evenly.

  2. Heat a saute pan over medium heat and coat with a thin layer of oil.

  3. Pour batter to fill pan in a thin layer (about 1/3 of your batter should fill a regular saute pan).

  4. Cook for 3-4 minutes until set and golden brown on bottom.

  5. Turn over with help of spatula or plate (or flip it in the air if you are good at that) and finish by cooking 1-2 more minutes, adding more oil if necessary.

  6. Serve with soy or spicy dipping sauce.
Extremely easy and the boyfie loves it. So another day accomplished with boyfie rubbing his tummy in satisfaction. And I loveeee my Korean fix. This Korean Pancake will be a hit from now on when I need some snacks.

Kim Chi Stew

Korean food is one of my favourite food (alongside Japanese and Nyonya). I can almost never say no to Korean food as the chances of having them is rather rare. All cause of the price and also the fact that we cannot share (some rules in the Korean food restaurants in Penang).

Anyways, my favourite are always bulgogi and the stews. I did try a bulgogi sauce which I made two whole big bottle of but they don't actually taste like bulgogi that I have in Dao Rae. Will blog about that some other time since today I did not cook bulgogi.

Today, I decided to cook Kim Chi stew since I still have leftovers of Kim Chi since my last craving for Korean food some weeks ago.

Soup base
3 table spoon of Pre-packed Kim Chi (or up to your liking but it can get rather sour).
1 table spoon of hot pepper sauce (you can get this at any Tesco outlet in Penang - cheaper than Korean grocery shops here, the same for the kim chi.)
Salt to taste

6 big Prawns
Minced pork
Sliced Chicken
Cubed carrots
4 Chinese dried mushrooms (soaked till soft before adding)
1 tube Japanese tofu

1. Add 3 table spoons of pre-packed kim chi into a pot of 100ml water (you can add water later). Then add the hot pepper sauce.
2. Mix in minced pork, sliced chicken, cubed carrots.
3. Let it simmer for a while before adding tofu, mushrooms and prawns as these cook faster. Add salt to taste. Let it simmer for a while more.

Makes a good pot of kim chi stew with everything inside. Perfect for single person meal or two person meal. If single person, half the ingredients. Easy and fast. You can eat it with rice or any noodles of choice.

 Hot pepper sauce

Salted Fish in Tamarind Juice (Ikan Masin Masak Belanda)

This is by far one of my most favourite food in Ah Ma's kitchen. Each time I am home, she will cook this (if she has any salted fish) because we are the two people in the house who appreciates salted fish as much as the onions. My family loves onions and if salted fish are cheaper (damn expensive now), it will be a very cheap dish that perhaps poor people eat back in those days. I got to cook this because my sister went to Pangkor and got me some salted fish (Ikan Kurau ones). I know right? I damn aunty, my sister went Pangkor and got me salted fish and anchovies to cook. T_T.

My grandma is a self-claim Nyonya who wears sarung and not pants, who cooks all sorts of Nyonya food but really is not a Nyonya at all. Oh, the comfort of wearing sarung. I suppose this dish is one of the Nyonya food she cooks.

Anyways, this dish is fairly simple with just a few ingredients.

Ingredients you need:-
Salted Fish (meaty ones, try to avoid the ones with bones)
Chopped Garlic
4 Onions (cubed)
1 Red Chili
Tamarind Juice

1. First fry the salted fish and remove them into a plate.
2. Then fry till fragrant chopped garlic, onions and red chilli.
3. Mix in tamarind juice (I use tamarind pulp and add in some water to make the juice). At this point, you have to taste your sauce, if it is too sour, add in some water.
4. Let it simmer a while and add in some sugar for that sweet taste. Add in your salted fish into the pan.
5. Simmer a little while before removing them onto plate and it is ready to serve.

So extremely easy and so extremely yummy. Need to go home and learn more tricks from the granny.

Life of a self-proclaim housewife

Now that I am unemployed and on my holidays, I do a lot of housewifey stuff like cooking, washing, cleaning and lazing around. Not helping that there is renovation work going on and they are drilling drilling drilling all day long. Noise pollution at its best. And I have a feeling it is the house above mine or fairly nearby cause it is super loud.

Anyways, I actually have tonnes to do but no motivation to do anything at all for the past 3 weeks. Almost a month of not doing anything real or substantial. I have thesis to prepare, lesson plans and camp stuff to do actually but all I did was just the housewife stuff.

Looking at people's holiday pictures is pulling out the holiday bone in me and I am dying and longing to go for a break. Tho I really don't deserve it. I am unemployed and feeding on my mum's money. Sometimes it makes me feel useless but oh well, when I'm working, I will be whining about not getting this luxury of free time. ^^ That's just me. So I'm gonna embrace this whole unemployed thing and enjoy my free time before I snap back to reality and work start piling up.

WILL DO CREAM PUFF AND POPSICLE TONIGHT. That's cause I don't have to cook. Going out for dinner with the fam.

Boyfie's mum is asking for HPV vaccination for me. WHY ME? *shudders* I thought it was for his sister.

Tuesday ramblings

Was browsing the sheets of songs that was given to me to prepare for worship leading with the kids this coming Sunday. I have always have soft spots for worship songs in Malay language because I believe that kids nowadays especially the kids in my Sunday school are not exposed enough to Malay language. Coming from a national school and mixing with my fellow Malay friends, I hold strongly in me that kids should be given a chance to mingle with our majority neighbours and know them for who they are and not based on their religion/race. At the end of the day, it is always problem with individuals, regardless of their religion or race and I want to expose my students to Malay language and not just treat it as just another language they cannot seem to master.

Besides, all these worship songs brings back beautiful memories like those I carved in Camp Cameron 2010 and NC 2011. The only time I sing a lot of Malay language worship songs were when I was in those two camps and PKA events.

Satu Suara

Bapa kami pinta dari mu
Pulihkan Negara ku
Satukan umat mu di Negara ku Malaysia
Agar kemuliaan Mu terpancar dari kami
Supaya dunia melihat kami satu di dalam Engkau
Satukan kami dalam kasih Yesus
Satukan kami dalam kemuliaan mu
Pulihkan geraja ku agar perubahan
Terjadi sekarang ini di Malaysia
Sekaranglah waktunya untuk kau and aku bersatu
Untuk pemulihan Negara kita Malaysia
Supaya dunia tahu gereja Mu bersatu
Satu di dalam kasih Kristus
Satu di dalam Engkau
Sempurnalah sukacita di dalam kami
Sehati sefikir sekata seia
Dalam kasih Kristus

Beautiful song. When I sang it in NC 2011, I had passion for Malaysia, I sang it with heart knowing that Malaysia is my earthly home and God will work wonders in Malaysia. Singing it now in 2012 in my room, I still hold on and claim that promise.
Bapa yang Kekal

Kasih yang sempurna
Telah kut’rima dariMu
Bukan kar’na kebaikanku
Hanya oleh kasih karuniaMu
Kau pulihkan aku, layakkanku
Tuk dapat memanggilMu, Bapa

Kau b’ri yang kupinta
Saat kumencari kumendapatkan
Kuketuk pintuMu dan Kau bukakan
S’bab Kau Bapaku, Bapa yang kekal

Tak kan Kau biarkan
Aku melangkah hanya sendirian
Kau selalu ada bagiku
S’bab Kau bapaku
Bapa yang kekal.

This song reminds me of my encounter with God in Camp Cam.. Love this song ever since. Haven't been singing this for a longgg time.

Ice Popsicle

Do you remember sucking fondly on the tube of ice pop that you buy from the mini market. Some lucky kids might even get hardworking mums who make them at home. Oh those milo flavour, asam boi...yummiest.

With that memory in mind and constant need for some icy stuff, I am planning to make some next week. I am sourcing some recipe to make several flavours (if my fridge can't fit, might even pinjam my friend's. =P) I'll remember to distribute them and bless others cause my carrot muffin with lemon cheese frosting that I failed to share around ended up berkulat. =( Damn sad. Threw away 6 out of 12. Will share around!!!

Will share my recipes too!! =P Next post, for easy viewing

Madagascar 3

I know this post came a little too late but I did not want to put spoiler when everyone have not watched it yet.

My favourite part of the movie yet

Look at the part Mort do the scary sound. SO FUNNY!!!! And cute!!!!

Speaking of movies, the boyfie and I enjoy going to Lotus Five Star in Prangin Mall for movies. RM5 for students on weekdays, even for PREMIER shows!! Love it. Popcorn a little too small a portion though. The large popcorn is as small as the one in GSC large. Best popcorn in terms of portion has to be TGV though the price of the movie ticket is not at all appealing.Will blog about Lotus Five Star. RM5 is too good to be missed.

Being alone at home and preparing for lunch pulls out all my lazy bones. I am usually very demotivated to cook lunch for myself but I did whipped up a few extremely simple meals.

Last week I had Mee Sua to eat with chicken soup I cooked for dinner. It was hassle free as I only had to blanch the mee sua. Another day I cooked fried rice with anchovies, a simple dish that I whipped up due to my laziness. These are the only two dishes I remember from last week. I cooked proper dishes for dinner though as boyfie will be back from work to eat them.

 My fried rice from last week

For today, I had egg and tuna sandwich!! Awesome I tell you. Love Massimo's 100% Wheat bread. Looks like the boyfie might get sandwich for breakfast tomorrow too. That is if I can wake up and make an easy one for him.

Designed an invitation to send on facebook to my sisters and mum.

I was sitting at home, too lazy to do anything serious or proper. I never really have any mood to do serious stuff unless I got no choice. Sometimes I would just read story books or laze around doing nothing. Anyways, decided to design this card and invited my family for a special dinner next Saturday night. Got my couzzie to grandma-sit my grandma as she is not a big fan of Western food.

Then I confirm the dates and designed this card. May not be the nicest card but It's my first time, give face. Will blog about the food after next week, if I managed to take any picture before start eating. Nowadays I am less a photo-freak than I was when I was younger. Cause I find it rather inconvenient and rude to ask people to wait for you to snap pictures of their food.

This weekend with be rather quiet as one student cancelled class and both sisters, my bro-in-law and the boyfie will be outstation. So it's just me, my mum and granny.

Close call

What's left of my "soup". Burnt to perfection I tell you.

Thank God for a kind uncle from higher floor who came down just to ask me if I cooked anything cause he smelled something burning. Thank God for him because the soup has completely dried up and is just waiting to burn through the bowl.

I may have lost my lunch for the day but if the uncle did not come, I would have completely forgotten about it till it explode or something. I can't thank God enough for His provision and His protection.

This is why we should not do so many things at the same time. I think I must have set the bowl on the stove to heat up my soup, then I took my clothes in and then sat down and edit my blog, reading blogs as I go on. Need to get myself the timer cause this is not the first time boyfie or I forgot about the stuff cooking on the stove and start doing other things.

Praise Lord for His protection! Thank You for caring for Your forgetful child.
