CNY greeting - Peanuts Cookies

got the recipe Hsling Kitchen

but modifying

by using home-grounded peanut

it is actually leftover from my man jian kueh

and we added bit of almond powder

maybe next time round

we shall experiment with

adding peanut butter too

 

hers one baked 115

thought of cutting the serving size into half

but mom said it would be too little

this serving size will be just nice

for two baking trays

 

wow she is just so right

we got two trays of 160 mini peanut cookies

it sounds quite a lot right

however for the hard work of 2+ hours

it is merely a medium size container

one thing about my peanut cookies

is that it weighs pretty heavy

real solid ingredients, no fool man

 

the method of piercing the cookies

with a straw is just so brilliant

in her blog, it is described as

mushi-shaped peanut cookies

coincidently we have run out of roasted peanut

 

it is all so fun

actually though of baking this cookies

because of my dad too

he is not a very cookies person

but over and over again

he keeps mentioning about

this peanut cookies that

a particular 80++ grandma

has made and shared with us

 

it all lies in her peanut frying skill

mom has asked the daughter for recipe

blah..selfish

she said “like this, like this loh”

 

it is jolly sinful

when we bake our own cookies

then we shall realize

how much of oil

is actually added in

 

but there’s no choice

oil is the deciding factor

to create the smooth texture

pop one into your mouth

and let it melt

the peanut and almond aroma

will linger on

till you feel like

popping another one in again

 

my dad’s comment was

the sugar is not fine enough

so the melting effect is

not achieved yet

 

but even my picky sis

said that it is not bad

happy happy

 

flour, sugar, peanut, almond powder

 pre-baking        oh my.. the oil     some chaotar one       better looking one         can't wait to taste one

3 hours = 1 can of lovely cookies

離開 是為了回來

窗外的風景

漸漸變得陌生

離家的距離

又越來越遠了

 

i just can't get enough

 

星期三去練習

當我知道星期日有彩排時

我整個心都沉掉了

還以為這個禮拜

可以毫無牽掛地回家

所以暗中有了打算

 

拜四早上遲起 七點了

來不及搭八點的巴士回家啦

去上課吧

不要逃避

然后去做工

還可以賺錢

 

但是 無所謂

我不管

我還是要回家

 

趕上了九點的巴士

而且買到了新年回家的票了

 

十二點多

就能夠安心地跟阿公吃午餐了

今天煮得很多好料

有媽媽的蝦煎 (我們太愛蠔煎了)

鹵肉 炸云吞和豆支

全部都是自制的

因為今天是月尾

阿公拜“后面公“的日子

初一初一

還有一個月快過年了

 

our lunch

 

忙著收拾東西

但是小比一直都不要我

叫我走開

親愛的阿比

我真的過一下就要走了

就讓我抱抱好嗎

我怕她怪我沒有帶東西給她

還特地在七十一商店

買了一些巧克力給她

但是她都不領情

 

看來我回來真的不是時候

阿爸爸講她是這樣

很就沒有看到就喜歡撒嬌

一直在偷瞄我

但是我最后也是沒有抱到她

可能現在她剛去上學

開始壓力了

阿比你要加油

 

下午茶

很好吃的太平香餅

還有我們的咖啡烏

多么希望時間就停在那一刻

 

現實是時間真的很快

我必須走了

阿媽媽為了不讓小比跟

偷偷摸摸走后門出去

 

忘了帶三樣相當重要的東西

開始有點怪阿媽媽

該帶的東西不帶

我不要帶的香餅和保溫瓶

就偷偷跟我放進去

但是她只是希望我

吃得飽 喝得燒

 

再會 馬六甲

希望不用多久

我又能回來了

用十小時的車程

換來在家的五小時

是值得的

我太想家了

家後

知道豬哥亮重出江湖

我下載了他的豬哥會社

給爸爸媽媽看

 

第一集

來了余天夫婦壓軸

他們所合唱的那首家後

真的很好聽

夫唱婦隨的感覺

而且余天的一番話

讓豬哥亮感動落淚

 

 

相關報道

 

原唱 - 二姐江蕙

 

黃小琥

滄桑感十足的聲音

而且簡單吉他伴奏

很贊

巧合的是

她在最新專輯的那首『伴』

還被稱為國語的家後

不妨一聽

 

2007/7/27.蕭敬騰最後一場駐唱

雖然聲音錄制不是很好

但是我相信老蕭一定演繹的很好

他之前那首在康熙來了的三冥三日

歷歷在目

但是他這個晚上真的很帥

那個最原本的蕭敬騰

專心認真就很帥了

 

這首歌曲讓我想到了

另外一首我很喜歡的歌曲

趙詠華的最浪漫的事

兩首歌

有異曲同工之處哦

 

 

 

歌詞

有一日咱若老 找无人甲咱友孝 我会陪你
(有一天我们若是老了  找不到人来孝顺  我会陪着你)

坐惦椅寮 听你讲少年的时阵 你有外摮
(坐在长板凳   听你讲着年轻的时候  你有多厉害)

吃好吃丑无计较 怨天怨地嘛袂晓 你的手
(吃好吃歹无计较   怨天怨地嘛不会    你的手)

我会甲你牵条条 因为我是你的家后
(我会紧紧牵着不放  因为我是你的妻子)

阮将青春嫁置恁兜 阮对少年跟你跟甲老
(我将青春嫁给你家   我从年少跟你跟到老)

人情世事已经看透透 有啥人比你卡重要
(人情世事也已经看透了  还有谁比你还重要?)

阮的一生献乎恁兜 才知幸福是吵吵闹闹
(我的一生奉献给你家  才知道幸福是吵吵闹闹)

等待返去的时阵若到 我会让你先走
(等你回去的时候若到了  我会让你先走)

因为我会呒甘 放你为我目屎流
(因为我不忍心   看着你为我流眼泪)

有一日咱若老 有媳妇子儿友孝 你若无聊
(有一天我们若是老了  有媳妇儿子来孝顺   你若是无聊)

拿咱的相片 看卡早结婚的时阵 你外缘投
(拿我们的照片  看以前结婚的时候  你有多英俊)

穿好穿丑无计较 怪东怪西嘛袂晓
(穿好穿歹无计较   怪东怪西嘛不会)

你的心我会永远记条条 因为我是你的家后
(你的心我会永远的记住  因为我是你的妻子)

阮将青春嫁置恁兜 阮对少年就跟你跟甲老
(我将青春嫁给你家   我从年少就跟你跟到老)

人情世事嘛已经看透透 有啥人比你卡重要
(人情世事嘛已经看透了   还有谁会比你还重要?)

阮的一生献乎恁兜 才知幸福是吵吵闹闹
(我的一生奉献给你家 才知道幸福是吵吵闹闹)

等待返去的时阵若到 你着让我先走
(等你回去的时候若到了 我会让你先走)

因为我会呒甘 看你为我目屎流
(因为我舍不得   看着你为我流眼泪)

最浪漫的事
作詞:姚若龍 作曲:李正帆

背靠著背坐在地毯上 聽聽音樂聊聊願望
你希望我越來越溫柔 我希望你放我在心上
你說想送我個浪漫的夢想 謝謝我帶你找到天堂
哪怕用一輩子才能完成 只要我講你就記住不忘

我能想到最浪漫的事 就是和你一起慢慢變老
一路上收藏點點滴滴的歡笑 留到以後坐著搖椅慢慢聊
我能想到最浪漫的事 就是和你一起慢慢變老
直到我們老得哪兒也去不了 你還依然把我當成手心裡的寶

新學年之際

明天就要開學了

需要很多的勇氣

來繼續前面的路

還有很多的難題

等著我一一解答

有時真的把自己

折磨得快瘋掉了

 

明知道有些問題

沒有答案還是要問

原諒我 因為我就是 這樣的女生

~ by 戴佩妮

 

上個學期很不容易

地熬過去

挨了一年半

還有一年半

但是我還是無法說服自己

我應該保握當前的時間

好好地念下去

 

只是制造些恐嚇的效果

如果我不讀

親朋戚友會知道

會讓家人丟臉

而且我還會是朋友當中

唯一沒有大學文憑的人

新國政府會追債上門

還有我姐姐做了我的擔保人

會連累到她

可能我永遠都要偷偷摸摸做人

 

我的目標

還是一樣

我要快點畢業

賺錢然后回家

和素音談的那些出國機會

都是遙遠的夢想

我現在最想的

還是離開這個寂寞的城市

安心地回家去

 

唯有繼續逃避

繼續拖延時間

繼續麻醉自己

前方的路

還是一片茫然

 

昨天看回很多中學的照片

那個純真年代

我們都笑得多燦爛

我再把雙眼擠得咪咪的

讓嘴角使勁上揚

也再得不到那天的笑容

最重要的是

身邊的人與物

都不一樣了

 

p/s

給小殺牙同學

你走了一個星期

這么快就和我有同感了

恨不得快點畢業回家

但是至少要賺回本

美國

更加遙遠

更加寒冷

祝你一切順利

不會走入向我一樣的困境

記得分享

Mum’s Kitchen: Homemade Sambal

add in the tumeric paste stir it well     forming the thicker texture      keep stirring      6 and 1/2 containers        so good even to eat it on its own

 

we are chili-eating people

practically everything can be eaten with chili

the plate of cut chili in light soy sauce

on every single meal

green chili pickled with vinegar

and last but not least

the best chili ever, Sambal

 

the amout of chili my mom cooks

looks kinda scary

it can last for one month i think

 

chili, shallot, lemongrass, buah keras, turmeric

are the basic ingredients

 

how can we manage to finish so much of sambal

  • while eating dried meehoon kuih, sambal with fried anchovies is a must
  • 蝦米香
  • curry and rendang base
  • it’s even good as jam for bread and plain crackers

 

last sem i brought a can of 蝦米香 here

sambal fried with dried prawn

and it lasted me for the whole sem

a superb dinner can be prepared within 10 minutes

mee with dried prawn sambal paste 

the good thing about chili

is the jolly good warm after-feeling

 

i miss chili a lot

after i came to Singapore

and  i realized people here

don’t cherish spicy food

as much as we do back there

Malaysian, truly Malaysian

紅綠燈

我從小就不會過馬路

就是很遲鈍那種

其實我做什么事

有哪里一次是不遲鈍的

 

到中學了

過馬路都躲在人家后面

等有人過了

我才隨他們后面越過馬路

 

又是我還會發夢

人家過了

我還傻傻愣著

又要等下一班人群來

混著他們過馬路了

 

到了新加坡

這邊過馬路比較安全

到處都有天橋和斑馬線

還有可以按燈

 

紅綠燈這首歌曲前奏的那個

滴答聲

來這里聽了很多遍

 

雖然設施很好

但是我還是有

亂亂過馬路

而給車honked

就是在不該過馬路的地方

闖過去

不要命

 

很喜歡這首歌

唱出那種小女生的心情

鄭融除了這首歌

很像也沒有什么代表作了

 

而且MV拍的很好

不要講男主角余文樂是我的最愛

劇情有點傷感

當你很缺愛的時候

任何男生

都覺得他可能愛上你

什么都被看成是

示好的表現

 

天天來回

擁擠的巴士 地鐵

我真的很累

而且這只是一個開始

未來的日子還很長

 

有沒有一只穩重的手

可以拖我走過任何一條馬路

讓我不必再跟在陌生人群后面

發呆

 

紅綠燈 / 鄭融 

 

紅綠燈 / 鄭融 

作曲:張家誠

填詞:陳少琪

編曲:嚴勵行 / 鍾興民

 

從小老師也加倍認真 來教導我步過紅綠燈
右與左 必須清楚看真
那管一次做錯 也都可摧這生
何解我戀愛雙倍殘忍 從來是快樂過便不會僥倖
動作小 簡單偏偏最深
我怎可以做個 最優秀路上行人

#明明綠燈 轉眼變成紅燈
假使相當勇敢 怎可挽回自身
若要衝 損傷怎可以不留痕
來又去 要找的際遇未接近

* 明明綠燈 轉眼變成紅燈
抬頭前望去 對面馬路如此吸引
逐秒等 心急總加倍的難行
難道我 要必先壯烈地犧牲 去換吻
如夜了 我衣衫太薄便歸家 靠路燈
誰想到走錯死裡逃生 才明白較沒有夢想更不幸
若誕生 不好好開過心
也不可以被愛 我不過是像泥塵

Repeat #**

For Someone <待續>

那天我們只差一點

緣慳一面

我真的后悔莫及

怎么自己這么貪睡

 

那天還有我的雪糕和曼煎糕

開來沒有口福吃到了

 

只差一點點 即可以 再會面
可惜 偏偏 剛剛 擦過 

<十面埋伏>

 

然后你要飛的那天

電話都放在包包里

其實我有點在等電話的感覺

沖涼一半

我媽媽的電話響

跑出來看 不是你

就快點跑回去

怎么就沒想到要把自己的電話

帶在身旁

 

看來我們真的是有緣無分

走了以后

我就永遠錯過了你

 

然后你打給我媽媽的

電話頭三次

我沒有接

我在那邊愣著

有點忐忑

 

立即打了個信息給我的好朋友

內容大概如下

something is very wrong with me

felt rush of heat and anxiety

despite in air-con room

 

我開始相信

幸福是:在對的時間,遇見對的人!

~by 吳若權 in 錯過你 遇見愛

原來timing是這么重要的東西

 

那天星期六下午收到你的信息

我很意外

過后發信息給你

也很快通過

原來一切還不是這么灰

 

很高興今天我們能像

以前那樣再度聊天

當MSN的藍色連接彈出來

還以為你的MSN中蟲了

恭喜你買了新的電腦

最后我們都沒有選擇Dell

 

一直想快點回家寫這篇文字

16站的地鐵路程

突然變得很快

管它這個學期沒有科目讀

最多我不讀了

 

心情很好

原來這種感覺很微妙

 

一直都在想這首歌

 有時候我會 感覺非常累

有時候也會 不自覺把你拖累

雖然白天它不懂夜的黑

我所說的一切你都明白

黑白配 / 范瑋琪

 

黑白配 / 范瑋琪

作詞:范瑋琪

作曲:范瑋琪

 

太陽曬的我 眼睛睜不開
你的好脾氣 讓我心情壞不起來
下雨下的我 眼神發呆
你的道歉 聽著聽著我都快要笑出來

誰說不能黑白配
世界上沒有什麼事 能夠如此的絕對
曾經有人這樣唱過
白天它不懂夜的黑 你卻懂得我的美

有時候我會 感覺非常累
有時候也會 不自覺把你拖累
你有時會說 我們不配 
只要能依偎 真的真的我什麼都無所謂

誰說不能黑白配
世界上沒有什麼事 能夠如此的絕對
曾經有人這樣唱過
白天它不懂夜的黑 你卻懂得我的美

鋼琴也是黑白鍵
一樣能彈出我對你 只有滿滿的感謝
也許黑永遠不明白
在這個彩色的世界 有你我才會存在

1st Shoppin’ of 2010

All floral prints

All for RM 75 only

 

this ELH shop at Tesco

been noticing it

but didn’t enter

first of all

trolleys are not allowed inside

then my mom commented that

the clothes are a bit ah-lian-ish

 

but nowadays who cares about

whether the shop is classy or not

as long as the clothes and the price is right

just grab it

just like Dees Simplicity

which we have learnt to appreciate

more and more

 

the rm 10 huge banner outside

and the crowd

attracted us to enter for the very first time

 

we were squeezing

in the shop

ended up with hands

full of clothes and hangers

 

this is one of my fav activity

during shopping

to ransack for clothes

among the maddening crowds

 

i think Carly you know the best

how i “luan” the Seed at MV

ransacked so long for the red blouse

for the right size

then ended up borrowing rm 30

 

and you will end up interacting with

fellow crazy shoppers

a girl asked me

where i got the blue dress from

another girl asked my mom

which of the two dresses

should she pick

 

too bad i didn’t bring my mr Oly along

 

so so glad

for my loots today

great start for 2010

Rm 10 Skirt     Mini dress          Mini dress       Mini dress     Top         More delicate floral printWait, isn't this similar to my Roxy tube        I like this print the best      The bow is so so cute

New Pets for 2010

i had never been to any countdown party

during new year

usually spend the new year

quietly at home

 

this year is kind of different

mom went for a wedding dinner

me and dad went for

our fav wanton mee and fried oyster

at Bunga Raya

 

actually we had already planned

the journey ahead in the afternoon

we had targeted a pair of horses

at this exhibition at Ming Xin

but we had not officially walked in

we were discussing about the price

 

actually we are kind of sick

of all these exhibitions

the sellers always price the items at

ridiculous prices

and pretended to give discount

then they ask you back,

how much you are willing to pay

 

looking back at

a few of our loots at home

we discover that

we had paid far too much

than what the items worth for

 

so we just decide stop going anymore

see nothing

then we shall buy nothing

 

this time round,

we are smarter then

contacted an old friend

he is one of my dad’s gang

in stuffs like that

he already bought quite a lot

from here

 

so let him get a price quotation

from the seller

then we went

it so happened that

he was there as well

last night

 

finally the price went down

to what we are willing to pay for

and there we got a pair of horses

 

i was sitting at the back seats

with them

protecting them all the way

then showered them outside

before bringing them

into the house

 

welcome home

today dad had preened them

with red ribbons

and name them

吉祥 n  如意

he even discovered

a way to differentiate them

 

with them

our gods at home

can travel to anywhere

whenever they want to

Welcome home         We are strong horses      We are such chatterboxes       Look, we got preened
