Play Dough for Liana

 I had some expired flour which I misplaced and forgotten about. Idea came through to make play dough to give Liana some excitement in the weekend. Indeed it was an exciting activities for the whole family with the two brothers and daddy joining the moulding activities to show their creativity.

 Liana and us had a lot of laugh every time something created especially the ones made by daddy.... (kind of hard to guess and Liana burst to laughter once she was told what that was!). Liana can guess 90% correctly what was created and the 10% mostly the ones from daddy..... Guess what daddy came up with..... one of them was i-pad (Liana's favourite toy)! Her eyes were wide opened and blinked a lot as she cannot guess but burst to excitement to know it was her favourite thing... LOL.

She also requested a lot of things and gave a challenge to the brothers to create for her.... dinosaur, monkey, snake, crocodiles, fish, birthday cake (this one was her favourite and she sang birthday song repeatedly for herself & pretend to blow the candles), buttons, apple, orange, elephants, flowers, many more.

some of the things created by the family.....
 Come and make play dough and give a lot of fun to your small kids whilst develop their creativity at the same time!

Terubuk Masin Masak Lemak Cili Padi + Terung Asam

 Yesterday I received a parcel from a dear FB friend containing fresh salted Terubuk (Longtail Shad) specially flown from Kuching. She suggested this dish and therefore I asked a favour from hubby to buy Terung Asam (local sour brinjal) after office hours today as I cannot wait to try.

Indeed she is right that the salted Terubuk from Kuching is a lot fresher than the ones sold in Miri. It is also a lot less salty. My hubby and I enjoyed our dinner very much tonight - thanks so much dear friend.

Salted Terubuk / Longtail Shad
Terung Asam (local sour brinjal)

Here is the recipe:

Salted Longtail Shad in Chili Padi Green Broth + Local Sour Brinjal
By: Roz@HomeKreation
INGREDIENTS:
1 Salted Terubuk
4 Shallots*
10 Chili Padi*
3 Green Chilies*
1" Turmeric Root* (* pounded) 
1 Lemongrass - bruised 
1 small Terung Asam - sliced with skin on (it will be easily peeled off after cooked) 
1 bowl Thin Coconut Milk
1 bowl Thick Coconut Milk
4 Green Chilies - cut lengthway
MSG (optional) 

METHOD:
1. Clean salted terubuk with a lot of water so that it is not too salty & scale-off.
Cut into big pieces (if too small it will break during cooking).

2. Place all ingredients into a pot, except thick coconut milk.
(Note that no need to add salt to cooking as fish is already salty)
Cook until Terung Asam is tender.
Add in sliced green chilies & thick coconut milk & off the fire once boiled.

3. Serve with white rice.

 This is the latest hits amongst the bloggers right now and I don't want to be left out since the ingredients are all readily available and quite easy to prepare. The taste is surprisingly nice too (despite simple ingredients) and soft texture.
I'm very happy that I was successful this time in getting the whole cake out from the Wilton cake mould in whole perfectly and beautifully. The cake sticked so badly the last two times when I tried - I shared my frustration here. A couple of kind readers wrote to me to share some tips and only now I managed to try the bundt pan again and it works! The tips given is to use veg spray instead of butter & flour. Thanks so much to both of them.

Red Velvet Cheesecake

 Tried this recipe to serve in the office last Thursday for belated CNY celebration and corridor decoration competition. It was such a fun day despite everybody was very busy with workload. Nevertheless we managed to decorate the office within few hours just before the competition started. Decoration alone is no fun without food so we also served some festive food including few types contributed by myself. One of my colleague put up a teaser at the corridor entrance to persuade the judges.... LOL.
The cake tastes good with moderate sweetness. There was slight problem with the drawn pattern on the cake which started to smudge after taken out from fridge due to condensation. The cake was also soaked by the condensation and became dense.....

TQ to Maz@Ilhamdapur for sharing a beautiful recipe. Also TQ to Azlita@MasamManis for idea to sketch little rossette that she made on cheese tarts.

Baung Salai Masak Lemak Cili Hijau

 Found very fresh Ikan Baung from the open market and grabbed it right away.... only later when served I discovered that my hubby does not consume this kind of river fish. I thought only cat fish is the problem but he said he cannot swallow anything look as such.... what a pity.

The fish tastes sweet since they are very fresh and I like it very much cooked it this way.
 I'm too sleepy to type more right now.... guess no one needs the recipe anyway....
Quite small size.....
I open-grilled the fish before cooking to obtain better aroma & taste
