.... the last edition of raya.. raya... raya...

This week has been a chaotic one.. i baked.. i cooked.. i threw two cakes away and i cried lol.. i was busy.. i was tired BUT it was worth it... i baked like 250pcs of macs which gave me an opportunity to try out new fillings.. nutella ganache, salted peanut butter cream and white chocolate with passionfruit.. yum yum! we had our open house yesterday and it went well.. Mom helped me alot - "Thanks Mom!".. we went to the wet market on friday.. hb took leave to take us to just abt anywhere we want to go.. mom took over half of my workload by cooking three out of 8 dishes that were prepared for my guests.. phewww!! i called in Lisa to help me out in the kitchen.. thank goodness! sis Wati stayed till late to help me do the dishes.. much appreciated! both hb and i stayed till 3am to do the cleaning... by the end of the day eventho both of us were kaput.. we had a wonderful time with our guest.."Thank you all for coming!"


We ate...

We chilled...

We laughed..

We stayed till late (and fell asleep hehehe)...

Hb had invited a few of his working colleagues, his old classmates and business associates.. ty for coming .. it was nice meeting u guys!

Ahem ahem lol... ur looking good there Timo!

The three beauties... arent they adorable! we had babies... toddlers and kids in our house yesterday!

My cakes and cookies were placed in 4 different areas of the house... macs with valrhona dark chocolate, nespresso coffee ganache, nutella ganache, raspberry dark chocolate, salted caramel, lemon curd with creamcheese, white chocolate with passionfruits, salted peanut butter cream and the red macs that u see there are called red velvet macs.. we also had devil food chocolate cake and fruit salad (pinoy dessert and recipe courtesy of my helper Lisa) which later became the big hit among my guests hehe


Aunties.. uncles.. cousins... nieces... nephews...friends...

.... my last guests went back home right after midnight and u know what am i looking forward to next weekend? hehe... KL trip! yahoooooo

I teringat those indon resep where they uses alot of egg yolks and also susu kental manis as in condense milk in their recipe.. they tak pakai ovelette pun.. maybe u can sub with those two ingredients?

Salam Rima.Cantik sungguh hadiah GA ni.Kalau Bik Mlah dapat akan gunakan untuk kegunaan persiapan membuat kek,kuih, lauk pauk dan apa saja yang berkaitan masakan dan makanan,lebih2 lagi peralatan dapur Bik Mlah agak terhad kerana kurang mampu untuk membeli,maklumlah tak kerja...aisy Semoga Allah lapangkan dan berkati rezeki dan kehidupan Rima.Amiin!

K. Rima, dah dapat jalan2/merayau belum? Ni mesti sibuk baking for yr KL trip ;)

Sonya makin bergaya? Ikut siapa eh? hehehe. A weirdo like me, when I wanna get ready, I'll hide in my closet (Eh not a lemari, now that wld be super weirdo... but a walk-in) so my girl will not see me 'paint' my face. hahahhaa.

Thank you K. Rima, you're just such a kind person through n through. Insya'Allah I'll let you know if I pulang kampung Singa.
