Lost and Found

I was lost for a while...and I'm actually still a little lost...but hopefully my bearings will be clear (and found) soon.

Have been very busy with a new project that I am involved in.  Anything new is always interesting and fun.  At times, I do find myself too engrossed in it and may just neglect certain other duites...hehe..  One of the new things that I am engrossed in is to try new (to me, at least!) and yummy kek lapis recipes.  So far I have been flipping through lots of books and magazines...some old and some new...some borrowed and some are my own.

Pictures taken from some of the books and magazines I own.

There are so many different recipes and methods to try.  But lazy me will only try out those that look easy and pretty..and not forgetting those recipes where I can easily get the ingredients.  There's one particular recipe that I am looking for but the recipe calls for the cake to be steamed and not baked.  I prefer baked kek lapis rather than steamed ones...dunno why??  Will be trying out a cream cheese kek lapis soon and will update as soon as possible. 

Ooohh...the school holidays are over and it's back to reality now!  Actually, I have never been away from reality..was never in dreamland, disneyland, or any other land.. hahaha...  Sometime last week, we decided to drive to Johor Baru first then explored further to Simpang Renggam, Pontian and Pekan Nanas.  It was quite an adventure as none of us have ever been to Pontian.  I should have brought my camera along as there were some nice pictures to be taken.  My husband took some pics using his phone and I forgot to ask him to download it to the computer.  The camera in my phone "tak boleh harap lah!!".  Was using BlackBerry before and I just loved the clarity of the pictures taken from the phone.  Now I am using Android and the particular mobile phone model I have is so no gooood!  Want to change to another model by end of the year, I hope..

At Simpang Renggam, we stopped at the ever famous kek, kuih, biskut & keripik "pit-stop".  Bought some keripik ubi and my favourite Bangkit Gula Melaka.  By the end of the road-trip, all of us managed to get the car very messy and "berserak" with all the goodies we munched.  Our mouths were constantly in motion...either talking or eating..haha..  We were laughing a lot too!

And just yesterday, we had this lovely dessert.  Well it was actually the dessert Nadyn ordered but the rest of us managed to help her finish it!  The warm and soft chocolate cake just melts in your mouth..and together with the vanilla ice-cream...ooohhh..we're in heaven..

This picture is not so clear.  Took it using my mobile phone.  Excuse the quality.
