Smile For You

September 25, 2008
I Always love the lil gift that my son give me .
Nothing else. Just a Smile or Laugh .
It’s like an infection , i catch it like a flu.

When he smile at me, i started smiling too.
When he happily laugh, i feel so great.

I thot about the smile when i m down, when i m mad and sad.
Those lil gift from my lil one that actually make me move forward.

Sometime i will smile myself alone when i think of the lil gift.
When i was far away …. how nice….
A single smile just like this could travel round the earth.

Dear boy, keep the smiling and laughing going.
Everyone need a smile, especially mummy.

Do you want to get infected ???Look through all the happy faces that your lil one give you
and make yourself feel better.

&
share a smile and make someone else feel better.

Go ahead, smile… good for health.

Cupcakes VS Muffins

September 22, 2008
Mix Fruit Muffins
Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcake

My two dear friends also excited with my new Oven. hihihi

We try out this Muffins & Cupcakes last weekend. The outcome was GOOD.

& We been questioning among us, what is the different between Cupcakes & Muffins.

I already got the answer long time ago, when i get this Q from my hubby.

This is what i got/know : –

Cupecakes

  • A cupcakes is essentially the same as a whole cake.
  • It is simple baked and served .
  • It is usually frosted and decorated.
  • It is sweet and hence eaten mostly as a dessert or a sweet treat.
  • An un-frosted cupcakes doesn’t not equate to a muffins
  • Butter is usually used in a cupcake recipe
  • CONCLUSION : A Cupcake is a CAKE

Muffins

  • A muffin is one of the easiest things to bake.
  • It is simple mixing the wet & dry ingredients together and some recipes do not even require the use of an electronic beater or whisk.
  • It can be frosted or not frosted.
  • For fruit muffins, to use a crumble on top.
  • It can be sweet or savoury and is mostly eatan durig breakfest or tea.
  • A frosted muffin does not equate to a cupcake
  • oil is usually used in a muffin recipe
  • CONCLUSION: A Muffin is a type of bread (Quick Bread)

An info from this blog :

An Excellent formulaic definition of the difference courtesy of Diana’s Desserts:

‘A basic formula for muffins is 2 cups flour, 2-4 tablespoons sugar,

2½ teaspoons baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt, 1 egg, ¼ cup oil,

shortening or butter and 1 cup milk.

When the fat, sugar and egg ratio in a recipe reaches double or more than this,

you have reached the cake level.




Another cake i tried , a Carrot Cake….

( i not really fancy about this carrot cake, mayb too much cinnamon ground i added)

Last, i had a good baking session especially with my 2 friends,

We laugh , we chat, we try, we eat, we wash …

more joyous & more fun. Who wanna join me ??? 🙂

Into ….. Dinosaur

September 18, 2008

Lately Jeremy fall in love with Dinosaur !!
He will said : Long neck saur, big big saur ……
I not sure where he get the idea of dinosaur.

Later Daddy even bought some dinosaur CD movie.
Some of the movie was scary
but Jeremy didnt show any fear …
He enjoy the movie !!

Since he love dinosaur, so i plan to get him some dinosaur book.
But it’s seem difficult to get.
Mostly with lots of words & knowledge about a certain dinosaur

and those book more suitable for adult and teen.

so after few bookshops i go ….

till i found this :
My Dinasour Book from Kinokuniya.The pictures was sharp ,big & colouful ,
just the right book for Jeremy.
That’s the book i m looking for. Cost RM21.90 ( not bad-la)
It’s a board book.
The first time he saw the book, he was looking at the first page for very long time.
He was amazed with so many different kind of dinosaur.
But sorry to say, each dinosaur species was very difficult to pronounce .
so, every single was dinosaur for him, just with long neck,
with horns, with teeth, with spikes……
Glad i found this book.

Jeremy @23 months

September 18, 2008

I m not been posting any on the blog, cos i was down with flu and bad cough … yah, my turn to get sick. Jeremy was fine now , thanks for all the wishes and regards. I think I had lost track with his developmental … Here’s some i can remember …. yah yah, i was thinking how to celebrate his TWO years old Birthday next month too . ……

He is …………………….

  • A very talkative lil boy , language skills is improving … can say in short sentence .Some of the words he pronounce is very clear but still some in baby language.

  • An animal lover, love watching animal show like national geography in animal,can name animal very well .

  • A quick learner I should say .Some of the thing we do and say 1 times, he will remember and follow.I sure if I put more patient and time on teaching him, he will learn faster & pick up well. (all my fault … I m too tired and too lazy to teach him, cos sometime it’s turn out a mess and fight )

  • Very into ‘driving’ lately. like turning the steering wheel and make the car sound & always wanna to seat with papa so he can drive . But just a very short distance only.

  • A very troublesome lil boy when come to eating out and outing for some shopping, Not being cooperative when eating out, always make trouble, want spoon, want folk, want rice… want this and that …sometime even knock the table with the spoon …. and people around look at us…. like ” why is this boy so naughty ?? ” When bring him out to shopping, don’t like to hold hand, like to walk himself…. That’s is why i hardly go shopping now . Everytime come back from shopping, i feel very tired !!

  • Not yet in potty train, but will tell me when je wanna poo poo.
  • A destroyer, almost each new toys will be broken within few minute . That why we hardly buy toys for him.
  • Last …… He is soon become TWO years old .

More Practice & Experience

September 9, 2008
Lovable & Pink Cupcake
This Cupcake i bake for my “Chi Mui” during her wedding night buffet
at her house last Saturday.
Well, just for her and family member only. Not for visitor.
A Quick Pizza – Recipe take from Chinnee . Nextime will have to put more cheese.
Another Pandan Cupcake & for my another “Chi Mui’ daughter to do some deco .
Also try some grill Chicken Wing by using Mccormick Hickory BBQ Buffalo Wings. Pandan Yogurt Cake recipe take from Congking Ninja.
&

Cheese Biscuit
from
Delicious Asian Food.

I bake and bake for the last few week (Weekend). non-stop. hihihi.
I’m having fun with this baking and grilling.
The only thing i don’t like was the washing part… everything was so creamy & oily.

I got some comments from blogger saying that “practice makes perfect“,
well, of cos my baking was not perfect , and yet still alot to learn and experience.

I do fail during my baking .
Some turn out not nice and not good looking at all.
( the cake not being bake even, some sank in the middle, some too hard)
I believe not everyone can bake a good and nice cake with the same recipe .
But i just love to try out more and more till i get the result i want.
That’s the way we learn and improve. right ????
&
I welcome all the comments and tips from you all who are good at this.
