Ayam percik mudah

I have made ayam percik for iftar last night and it was a BIG hit! Husband can’t stop licking his fingers and the kids ate a lot. Now, that says a lot coz my kids are such a picky eater! I have made similar roasted chicken before but I assure you, this one is a hit. Let me share out the recipe in malay language coz this is how I copy(paste) it down. Sharing is caring and this is a special request from my twitter buddy @marlianaz (*waving hand*). Here we go and enjoy!

Now, this is the picture of the real deal. *proud face* :p


My daughters new antics

What can I say, twitter and now drawsome has conquered my free time. Of course, family, kids and work (and FB) too!

This is how my kids keep me and DH very busy, by playing and fighting with each other! They are quite competitive too. It makes me worried sometime.

Let me illustrate it with some pictures:

Adik menonggeng...

Kakak pon ikut menonggeng.. :p

Adik got stucked and cried coz she can't get up :p

Kakak pretend to get stuck too! :p hahaa

Adoi.. there are many more example but I am so lazy to list it down. Letih ok! Everything needs to be repeated. Everything must be in sets of two. If I bathe kakak, adik will cry and wanna join us. I feed adik and kakak want some milk too. If hubby is not around I think I will go crazy lah! Like I am not “crazy” enough juggling work and family.

I am not so strong. My house looks like a sinking ship most of the time but thank god for an understanding hubby who are willing to help around the house. (If I am lucky and he is available around the house :p haha)

My first home made cucur badak

Hubby has requested for a home made cucur badak for quite some time. It is one of his favorite kuih and I am not really a fan actually. I prefer karipap and donut instead. Finally, last weekend I ask hubby to go and get the ingredients at the market and tadaa~ finally the cucur badak materialised.
Let me share you the pictures of before and after the cucur badak is fried as well as the recipe I got from myresepi.

Before the deep frying

The golden ball or hubby's favorite cucur badak is ready!

The recipe:

Resepi cucur badak

Oleh: princessharyati

Bahan-bahan ( 28-30 biji sedang kecil )

Untuk kulit

2 biji keledek saiz besar

1 cawan tepung gandum


Untuk inti

1/2 biji kelapa parut

1 cawan udang kering

2 biji bawang besar

5 batang serai

1 sudu kecil kunyit serbuk

5 tangkai cili kering (ikut kepedasan masing2)

1 sudu besar minyak masak

Garam dan gula


Untuk inti:

Blender cili kering+serai+udang kering dan bawang dgn sedikit air. Setelah halus masukkan kelapa parut, blender sekali. Blend sekejap jek. Setelah itu masukkan semua ke dalam kuali. Masukkan juga kunyit + minyak + garam + gula dan serbuk perasa. Kacau sehingga inti tu masak, ia akan kelihatan kering sedikit.

Untuk kulit:

Rebus keledek dengan air dan sedikit garam sehingga lembut. Setelah masak , buang air tinggalkan sedikit dan campurkan dgn tepung. Buat masa panas-panas, senang nak lenyek. Jika adunan lembik lagi tambahkan sedikit demi sedikit tepung. Jgn terlalu byk nanti tak sedap.

Selepas itu buat doh kecil2 . Ambil satu buat melengung. Tip: semasa hendak membuat doh ni guna sedikit minyak masak di tangan agar tepung tak melekat, keje pun cepat dan senang. letakkan inti dan tutup kembali. Goreng dengan api yang sederhana. Siap untuk di santap.


You can go to the link provided for pictures from others who have tried it too. Yummy it is! The only thing hubby complained about is the inti or the coconut filling is not full enough leaving the cucur badak not as gebu as he like it to be :p Hehe.. I still got some of the inti left so I think I will cook another round of cucur badak soon. So, what is your favorite traditional kuih? 😉

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

Sugar is sweet,

And so are you.

So I received a lovely bouquet of red roses from hubby on my birthday. He is the sweetest and always dear to my heart. This is the third time I received flowers from him. Three times since I knew him in 1994. Yes, he is my high school sweetheart and my love for him grows each day. Some of you might not believe in love at first sight or long distance love but let me tell you this; it happened to me and you could survive the pain of missing someone you love. As long as you trust yourself, trust each other and stay true to yourself anything is possible.

The beauties

Before I bore you to death with my writing. Here’s the poem above in french, with a slightly different meaning though.

Les bleuets sont bleus, les roses sont roses,

Les bleuets sont bleus, j’aime mes amours.


Violets are blue, roses are red,

Violets are blue, I love my loves.

To dear hubby, thank you for being my best friend and being such an understanding life partner. You know I love you and will always do.
