Diana's visit to KL :)

Today i was ecstatically feeling very happy coz finally i get to meet up with my long time best buddy from UiTM which is the one and only DianaDominic :) Miss her very much so this meeting was really good as dont know when we will have the opportunity to meet up with each other again . But this time it was much more fun then always as she had her sister Felisa with her which made this meeting twice ads great as im pretty close with Felisa as well :)

we met up at Mega Mall, in Mid Valley and right after that we went to yum cha at a Thai Restaurant which happens to be Felisa's and Diana's favourite place to hang out because they love Thai food and i love Thai food also :)we talk and chat and "ketawa" until my cheeks and mouth just numb from all that healthy laughing...then suddenly..."Black-out-time" then everything changes and only Flisa would be able to explain this Black out moment and as for me and Diane, we just continue with our conversation and laughing our heads off ah, well...whenever "we" meet up theres always something funny or just out of this world happening and no different from today coz we have a very "Rainy-black-out-moment" and only Felisa know how to explain it :)

anyhow back to our jovial and happy mood we went shopping for goodies :) It seems that "doing shopping" have a calming effect on Felisa and so we all also "tumpang gumbira" alongside her hehehe...so we went from one floor to one floor until we exhausted our feets and bought some stuffs for ourselves and family then finally calling it a day when Raymond came and meet up with us :) We managed to snap a group photo of us with the help from a chinese sales girl who insisted to speak chinese with us eventhough we converse in malay to her ha ha ha. Anyhow, she did a wonderful job. voilà! our picture together :)
and hope to be able to catch up with diana again before she goes back to KK soon :((

My 1st Croissant! :)


I have always love to eat croissant its one of my old time favourite. The problem with me is that, i love to eat my croissant with butter and thats sinfully rich in everything particularly fats. So i have been toying with the idea of making my own "guilt-free croissant" for i have done a few recipes of my own through trial and error for my butter free bread or organic wholemeal bread as well as guilt-free Brioches as well. So i was thinking why not make my croissant less oilly and less butter and make it as healthy as possible so i came up with my own recipe for this and so this is my first procuce. Raymond was my tester person for he is french and so he should know better on how a croissant should taste and he is very particular with breads and pastries and particularly croissant. So this morning i suprised him with my mini croissant as well as mini croissant breads and he loved it! Especially when its not oilly at all and its very crispy and crunchy he said to me you must have put in tonnes of burre but i told him just the normal then less amount of butter and unsalted and just play around with the texture for the mixture for the dough so voilà! a healthy croissant!


The process of making the croissant


And the final product...voilà! Clarity's mini croissant :)

Food for thought :)

I have been writing much about my travellings that i hardly write anything about cooking or food. So this time am going to do one post one what i ate for the past few days and how i made this simple easy to do dishes in less then 30 mins ;)



I think everyone knows Maggie mee and i know rich or poor just about anywhere people still prefer maggie mee to any brands. As for me i like the Maggie Kari version and for normal original recipe i go for Maggie Cintan and as for Mee Goreng i would go for Indomee. I dont know about you guys but my hey-day during college years in U-ITM was built on maggie mee sessions at night where we cant have anything more then maggie mee for some extra food besides what was given at the canteen. At that time its just as simple as Maggie mee and telur and pour hot water into a container and wait 7 minutes and you ahve urself a intant noodle treat. It was teh greatest pleasure then hehehe...Anyhow, those days are gone but doesnt mean i dont have my maggie mee thingy anymore...in fact i do have them but improvised to be more healtier and added with some other wholsesome goodness for an extra flavour.

I usually add some cabbages and chicken sausages thrown in then some prawns/chicken and an egg and voilà you have yourself a healthy simple food, good to go :)



My 2nd food is something that i picked up during when i was in Vietnam recently, i had this Conggee Rice porridge one morning and then i was hooked on it and ate it everyday for breakfast during my stay there. The conggee rice poridge actually comes with some salted fried peanuts and Century eggs which means preserved eggs probably a century old hahah kidding! but heck the eggs were black in colour looked kinda scarry BUT taste really good just like salted egg. But this one no smell at all. Anyhow, with what i have i improvised a little and used normal hard boiled eggs and add in anchovies and mushrooms in it just to get more flavours. The onions, mushrooms and anchovies are sauteed for a couple of minutes and then arranged on the top of the porridge and springkled with some onions springs to go with it. I find it a very filling but light food for dinner or breakfast whichever suits you best. for me i had it for dinner as i wanted to have a light dinner for my diet and so this is the just the right choice for it :)



Finally, my third and final food to talk about is this nasi lemak ala clarity! hehehe i was chating with my aunt before i decided to attempt this dish because she said have you ever tried making a nasi lemak before i said hmnnn..maybe but cant remember and i told her was going to try and do one differently coz i wanted to cut down on the calories as much as possible so i decided to just use normal white steamed rice, then as for the sambal, i used tomato paste and some diced tomatoes and + tomato sauce to make it look like its spicy which is not hehehe :) then thrown in the sauteed anchovies + unsalted tuna and you have yourself a sambal. well sambal look a like anyways as i dont like my sambal to be hot or too spicy so this is how i did it and then arranged my halved hard boilled eggs on top of my salad and pour in the sambal on top of the eggs and get ur steamy white rice on the dish and a Voilà you have urself a nasi lemak ala Clarity style :)

hope you guys enjoyed my simple food treat!

A night of Mayhem :)

Last Thursday was the night where we had a small celebration of our own between myself, Hannie and Alys. Its kinda like a belated celebration of our birthdays together so we decided to have all the food that we longed to eat but not available. So Alys was put to work immediately to cook my favourite "Ayam Kicap Pecat + manis" Just like how my grandmother which is also Alys's mom way of cooking so its was going to be a blast and to top that off we also thought of "Ikan Tausi" the famous canne dfood from the olden days when we were living in Kampung Perinting this was our common food back then and not forgetting the green bean tumis with bawang. Goshhh! just as the food shows below the evening was a blast! we reminisce about our days back in the kampung we talked till midnight and finally we retire to our beds, its kinda like a slumber party because my other half was out stationed so it was a great joy to have some company and plus great food! Oh yes not forgetting also, our killer dessert! The Durian, Durian Delight! it was a tremendous delight indeed as i havent eaten durian in like for ages so it was a treat indeed! all in all, thank you hannie and aunty alys for bringing such joy to me with those yummylicious food! and happy birthday to both of us indeed!

Just my day .... and my Birthday!

It the time of the year again where for one day we will feel uneasy or just thinking too much or just thinking back and fort of what you've done for the whole year and whats been achived. well my day is today and as always i dreaded the big day coz i will by then entertain stuffs in my head of things i should have done or not done and by the end of the day take it or leave it ...live must go on...so that day is today which is my birthday!

This year i have done tremendous leap towards my carrer in life as well as relocating myself to another place and looking back i wouldnt be able to do stuffs like that without the commitment and support of a dear one who is consistantly encouraging me to move on and stand out in the crowd and just express myself. I have always been a very timid person and took me a while to get out of this shell of mine and now look at me i feel like i have finally took the step out of my shell and become me.

Looking back, im afraid to do anything and try anything for fear of rejection and failure but now i have a better perspective in life and having somebody who is caring, loving and understanding and most of all supportive tremendously helping a lot with building myself up again and thats someone is my other half Raymonnd. And i cant thank god enough for bringing us together and hoping for many many more birthdays and lovely time and moments together for we always say to each other...it only just begun :)

Today, i have a speacial treat from my other half and we didnt get to talk for the whole day until the evening when he mentioned to me on skype no need to cook we are eating out and im coming home shortly! then when he got back home, he was all wet from driving around in his motorbike and was holding a bunch of roses at the same time...I cried a little when i saw that because its not everyday that i get flowers on my birthday and i can count with just one hand how many times i receive flowers from a loved one and this is certainly the best gift ever. Before this it never bothered me people getting flowers from loved ones as i dont know how it felt and when it did happen to me my god i felt like im over the moon with happiness. With just a simple flower bouquet is enough to get me all teary because you can ask my sister how many times in my life do i get such gift...close to none. So this is the time for i will always treasure this moment and will always be a reminder for me and ray of how it felt like to make each other happy and felt loved. I guess we are one of the lucky ones to feel it and experience it and not take things for granted.


and not forgetting also to my family and friends far and near who have wished happy Birthday to me, it meant the world to me for having friends and family and relatives as all of you really touched my heart particularly my mom who tried to call me at 5 am in the morning just to be the first person to wish me happy birthday...thank you very much mom and to my sister mewot for sending me the morp picture of herself ...now i know i can bribe her wt that picture hehehehe thanks sis :) and finally...

Just want to say from the bottom of my heart, i love you for you and thank you so much for being the pillar of strenght for me when im down or in need of a helping hand and most of all thank you for being you and loving me just as i am.


merci du cadeau mon coeur!

fleurs très belles


merci beaucoup d'un beau dîner d'anniversaire mon chéri FM :)



Acceptez les choses auxquelles le destin vous lie et aimez les personnes avec qui le destin vous réunit mais faites ainsi avec tout votre coeur!

Giap's visit to our home :)

It was definately an honour to have our friend Giap to stay with us for the weekend all the way from Vietnam. When i was in vietnam he was the perfect host to bring us around and went jalan-jalan with us and help me bought my cosmetic blue lenses :) It was really nice of him and so to return the favour although it was only a 2 day visit and plus he had to work half of it we had only the sunday morning free for he had to leave for vietnam the same day which also happens to be his birthday! so happy birthday to you Giap from both of us!



here is Giap and Ray ready for their management meeting and Ray packed with his Brioche to share with his workmates :)

The following day we had some time to spare after the late breakfast and took some shots at Giap for he had a very striking shirt on :)


Then Raymond finally do the tour of the place with Giap throughthe garden and finally to the Maple eternity swimming pool
