Macaroon

Even though I've been at KLCC so many times, I've never step on the Harrods. Today was my first. Itupun sebab my friend nak carik bag. So I follow je la... Then, another friend asked me whether I ever ate macaroon. Nop... tak pernah. I tengok harga dia... RM 26 for 6 pieces of macaroon. Mak ai.... mahal gila! I would never buy that!

So my friend ni pun beli la... saja nak bagik I try. Bila dah makan.... uih...sodap! heheheh.... to those yang x tau macaroon tu apa (macam i...hehehhe..), here i copy & paste from wikepedia:


A macaroon (/mækəˈruːn/ mak-ə-roon) is a type of light, baked confection, described as either small cakes or meringue-like cookies depending on their consistency. The original macaroon was a "small sweet cake consisting largely of ground almonds"[1] similar to Italian or Moroccan amaretti.
The English word macaroon and French macaron come from the Italian maccarone or maccherone. This word is itself derived from ammaccare, meaning crush or beat,[2] used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient.
Most recipes call for egg whites (usually whipped to stiff peaks), with ground or powdered nuts, generally almonds. Alternatively, coconuts can be used. Almost all call for sugar. Macaroons are sometimes baked on edible rice paper placed on a baking tray.
  
How does it look like?

Hmmm... yummy! I memang suka sweet desert like this. Nanti la... one fine day bila dah tak berapa bizi, nak try buat Macaroon ni (bilo la tu...).

I think this is the first time I wrote about any desert, despite of my blog that is named as 'iluvdesert'. Sungguh misleading... hehhehe... till then.

Bizi Skek...

Last week was hectic. The whole family berkampung di Hotel Putra. My 'Biras' masuk IJN for bypass surgery. Tau tak biras tu apa? Jangan tengok wikipedia lak... nanti yang keluar Biras kat France :-) Biras tu Ipar to your hubby or wife.

Anyway, he was admitted on Wednesday. Since masa tu keadaan x berapa stable, so the operation was done on Friday morning. Alhamdulillah, berkat doa semua ahli keluarga & kawan-kawan, operation selamat. Now is recuperating at ICU. So doakanlah semoga dia cepat sembuh yer.

Secara tak langsung, aku pun belajar tentang bypass surgery ni. Kalo dulu dok dengar-dengar bypass surgery, tapi tak pernah amik tau how it was done. Since my nephews pun nak tau caner bypass surgery tu, so kitorang pun google jer...



I choose this one for sharing... yang lain tu showing actual surgery...takut ada yang x tahan nak tengok :-) Semoga bermanfaat yer... Akhir kata: Sayangi jantung kita :)

What kind of best friend are you?

I'm a 'loyal best friend':

You are true to your friends, and that goes double for your best friend.
You are trustworthy and faithful. Once someone is a friend, that person is a friend for life.

You are hard-working and believe in persevering. You don't give up on anything or anyone.
You make your friends feel stable and secure. You will be there through thick and thin. 


At least, that is what I got when I did the 'what kind of best friend are you' quiz. Heheheh.... But i do believe I'm a loyal friend :-) (mari masuk bakul....). You can try the quiz yourself here.

Actually I was watching Korean Drama '49 days'. And part of the storyline is about a friend that has betrayed her best friend just because she was jelous with her fortunate friend. Come to think of it.... orang cam tu ada jugak ke kat dunia ni eh? Imagine... they've been friends since high school (and now they are about mid 20s). Boleh dia suruh bofren dia tackle her best friend and rampas harta keluarga perempuan tu... Macam tak logik, tapi... who knows... anything can happend right?

That got me to question myself ; what kind of friend am i?... hence I google and found this web... (skang ni senang jer... maklumat di hujung jari anda... google je kalo nak tau apa-apa...but be careful...kena tapis2 gak maklumat2 ni...).

Anyway... the drama will end next week. Tak sabo nak tau apa jadik...

A Woman's Touch...

Pernah dengar kata-kata ni? 'Tangan yang menghayun buaian, boleh menggoncangkan dunia'? Begitulah hebatnya kuasa seorang wanita. Last 2 days I watched a korean talk show. Ingatkan boring...rupa-rupanya pengisiannya sangat menarik. The talk show was about maried couples psychology. About how important a communication is, about how couples can drifted apart when nothing was done to spice up their marriage life.

But... that is not my sharing for today. Today is about a woman's touch a.k.a in malay sentuhan seorang wanita. As most of you know, sentuhan ibu pada bayi yang baru lahir dapat membantu mempercepatkan pertumbuhan bayi, terutama bayi yang dilahirkan pra-matang. Usapan ibu adalah satu komunikasi non-verbal untuk mengucapkan kasih sayang terhadap bayi yang lahir. Anak akan rasa kasih sayang itu, rasa selamat dan rasa tenang. Remember when we small? Bila kita jatuh & ibu kita usap kat tempat yang sakit tu, terus rasa sembuh kan? Dan sekiranya kita sedih dan ibu memeluk kita, terasa tenang dan selamat.

According to the professor who was interviewed in the talk show, human nerves banyak kat tapak tangan, mulut dan lidah. That is why babies learn from touching things (and eat it!). When we get older, the touch becomes a way for our brain to 'feel' our loved ones and to feed our emotion needs. That is why we love to touch and kiss our loved ones.

Sentuhan wanita bukan setakat sentuhan fizikal. Cara kita mendidik anak-anak juga satu bentuk sentuhan yang sangat penting, terutamanya dalam membentuk peribadi anak-anak apabila dewasa. Sebagai contoh, according to the professor, kita selalu bagi statement kat anak-anak lelaki 'budak lelaki mana boleh menangis... malu orang tengok'. As such, boys would tend to surpress their emotion inside. That is why most of guys tak tau caner nak express their feelings. This is only an example. Of couse a lot of factor need to be considered when we say about things that could influenced behaviours. But still, ibu adalah sentuhan pertama. Thus it has a big impact in the child's life.

Bila difikirkan, patutlah anak-anak satu tanggungjawab yang sangat besar. Bayangkan, setiap perbuatan dan setiap tindak tanduk anak-anak kita setelah dewasa adalah hasil olahan ibu bapa.We influence how they behave. We influence how they live their live.

In conclusion, sentuhan ibu sangat besar ertinya dalam setiap aspek fizikal dan mental anak-anak.Sentuhlah mereka selalu dengan memeluk mereka, supaya mereka tahu ibu mereka menyayangi mereka.

Have you hug your kids today?
