thoughts

been listening to some songs that i used to listen to when i was a teenager. oh how quickly time passed by. everytime i do, it brings me back to the days where everything was easy, and fun. but then again maybe i should have woken up from my oblivious dream and start living in the real world. keep my feet on the ground so that i wouldnt be flying to high in the sky. at times i feel like i wanna go back. i would've been different, i would've been better but then again maybe it wont change a thing or probably be worst. there are a lots of things i want to change but then again i dont. i am now at a stand still. dont know where to go from here anymore. i am living life like how i drive at night, on a lonely street without a headlight. just winging my way out hoping i get home safe and sound. but its not easy to get home cuz i am constantly distracted by winding paths, traffic and ext.  it might be the death of me or it could be my key to getting to my destination. its all in my hands. if i wanna stay in the past i would but i wanna move forward so i will.

first time....

bought myself a couple of cook books to keep my interest in food alive since i am basically tired of everything else. with all the shit that is going on in the world only food could get my mind of things.
also to keep me busy since i've got nothing much to do lately.
i've tried making and baking a lo of things before except for pizza. found a couple of recipes on the book that looked really tasty and easy. so i gave it a try.
i've always shy away from making pizza or anything that involves yeast. i had never got it right before. but luckily this time around it turned out well. 
i am quite pleased with how it turned out. act pretty proud of myself, even my brother (my biggest and cruelest critic) loved it. it wasnt exactly dominos worthy, its kinda bread-y then i expected it to be but yea at least its something.
will be trying out more recipes soon. it will sorta be a new segment in my blog, trying out recipe book. 
have a nice day, see u in my next post:>

snickers bar frappe

ever since i had the snickers bar ice blended in Calanthe Cafe Jonker Street i've been obsessed with figuring out the recipe. i've found some recipes online but most of them consist of a few flavoring to mimic the taste of  a snicker bar. when i tried them out they dont taste like how it does at Calanthe. they made it taste like a liquidized snickers bar. it is freakin awesome.
today i finally got it down. although it might not taste exactly like calanthe's but close though. lol
so heres the recipe.

you'll need : (measurements in Starbuck's venti tumblr)
- 1 cup if ice
- 2 tablespoon of chocolate syrup
-1 tablespoon of caramel syrup
- 1/3 cups of milk (you can also use chocolate milk, but them leave out the chocolate syrup in your mixture)
-one whole snickers bar
- whipped cream and diced almonds for garnish

 put them all in your blender and juicer then serve with whipped cream and your choice of garnish.
enjoy.

WAFFLE MANIA

i love waffles! i thinks its a great snack to eat at any time of the day. reason being, that you can eat it as either savory or sweet. but again Food Network Channel had made me crave for something other than the conventional Waffles we have here in malaysia. you know they kind that they sell in the local stores with just jams or bread spread. NO i wanted something else, especially Belgium waffles! ever since i saw the show Throwdown with Bobby Flay, on an episode where he tries to beat a pro at making Belgium Waffles i was hell bent on finding one here for myself. one of theses days if i ever get obese i will blame it on Food Network Channel. the internet is amazing! you can find anything at all here, at first i thought if i couldn't find it here in malaysia, i will make them myself. get some recipes and try to bake them or something. but maybe it was just my luck, out of nowhere i found out about waffle mania thru Instagram and i was determined to go and get them.
i found out that there is a place that sells Belgium waffles with various topping here in Melaka! i was so excited. the next day i didnt waste anytime, i went there as soon as i was free from any classes and what not i dashed straight to Dataran Pahlawan and grabbed myself a couple Waffles!
 they have both Savory and Sweet Waffle toppings you can choose from. guess what, they are Halal to be consumed by Muslims. my favorite so far would be cheesy ham and marshmallow!
with every purchase, you will receive a purchase card, where you will get a stamp for every waffle you bought and if you bought 9 and got 9 stamps the 10th waffle will be free! isnt it amazing!
as it is stated in the flyer, for Hatten Square members will get a discount of 10% and students will receive 15% of their purchase. one more thing that is great about WaffleMania is that they have a free delivery service for those who are around Dataran Pahlawan or Mahkota Parade on weekdays! convenient !
they also accepts orders for any occasion so dont hesitate, make your party a lot more interesting and memorable with these delicious Waffles! 
i love these waffle, unlike the normal waffles, they are a combination of chewy, crunchy, soft sweet and salty at the same time. which keep me coming back for more. i like how they presented their product on a stick. it is easy to consume and could be consumed on the go. so if you need a quick snack for lunch, grab a couple of these.
here's some info on the delivery:

but now i am waiting for them to have this SUPER WAFFLE( as they call it) in Melaka. for the time being, they only make it in their branch in Berjaya Times Square. but for sure if they have it here i will be there 24/7!

how to make Starbuck's Green Tea Frappe

I am obsessed with Starbucks Green Tea Frappe, but as everyone knows it is freaking expensive. i could only enjoy it like twice or four times a month. i am a student still cant afford to spend RM15.00++ on drinks alone, it is preposterous ( wow big word there haha).
i decided to google the recipe for it as i do everytime i am craving something. i just go on google try recipes out. so this time it was for Green Tea Frappe.
the best thing about this recipe i found is that, it is very flexible. i can tweak the recipe a lil and make it into another type of drinks.

this recipe calls for :
(measurement are in Starbucks's Venti Size Cup)
-a cup of ice
-1/3 or a cup milk or less
-2 teaspoon of powdered Green Tea
-for every teaspoon of powdered Green Tea, you must add 2 teaspoon of sugar. so for this you will need 4 teaspoon
- and any type of garnish you desire (whip cream, chocolate cyrup and ext)

it not easy to find powdered Green Tea here in Malaysia, as they are not widely sold. I got mine from Aeon Melaka, this exact brand (picture above). which was at reasonable price of RM10 for 20 sachet. then later on i also found it in Tesco Cheng. there is another brand i found there but its Rm20 a box, a lil bit more high quality i guess. but other than that i am not sure where i could find them at.
if you wanted to try other drinks by using this recipe you can exchange the Powdered Green Tea with chocolate, Caramel, Raspberry or any other cyrups you like with the exception of the sugar.
its really easy and tasty! give it a try!

house of mini. its a small world after all

 hello readers. are you looking for something to crave that sweet tooth of yours? something easy to eat and delicious? look no further, i think House of Mini got just what you'll need.
i stumbled upon this cute little cupcake and donuts branch about two months ago. i even instagramed it (i instagram everything ahha)
  since then i am hooked! they are so cute and tasty. the thing i like the most about them is that, they made all of their product bite sizes. so it wont be messy and easy to consume. for people like me who can barely finish anything i eat, this is perfect. i cant eat them all by myself. haha
the branch i went to was in Mydin Ayer Keroh. i didnt know they had another branch in Melaka up until just recently. later on i found out a lil more about the establishment and am i fascinated. i like the whole theme of and idea of it. its so cute and whimsical. although i cant tolerate the fact that they had the song gwiyomi on repeat 24/7 but overall i am satisfied with everything they had to offer.
here is the company overview.
besides its being at reasonable prices i love the fact that they will ship their product nationwide. so even if you they dont have a branch in your area, you can still have them by order.
Plus their creations are specially customized and handcrafted for all occasions and events in Malaysia. they are also mindful of the health of their valued customers by using ingredients that are low in sugar content.
they are rapidly becoming a trend, making headlines and even celebrities are supporting this growing franchise. 

one of the branched you can find in Melaka is in Mydin Ayer Keroh. its easy to spot. 
their booth is so cute. they had their goodies lined up and it makes my mouth water!
they owner was there at the time i took these pictures. it was nice of him to let me do so, and the employees are very kind.

I love the fact that they provide a space to place names as such of a gift card, so it is perfect to give to someone as a gift. its like getting a card but better, cuz there are cupcakes in them!
they recently opened a new branch in Dataran Pahlawan which can be founf on the new upper level LOT G-077 next to WaffleMania.
here's a digital brochure further info of their product and location.
my personal faves are Choco Lover and Oreo Sandwich.

 good news to anyone who is looking for a job, they have job opportunities in all of their branches i think. also if you are interested in investing in this business, are welcome. contact can be found on their fb page, link on the digital brochure.
if you are drooling right now, run off to the nearest branch and fix that craving with their delicious cupcakes and donuts~!. i know i will!
