Last week we visited my brother again at the PLKN camp in Kuala Kangsar. My mom prepared Nasi Arab and Ayam Masak Pedas for the trip and asked me to prepare something light for the whole family. So I decided to bake the macaroons which is simple yet delicious and yummy. I know my three brothers will enjoy these chewy cookies.
(*muahaha masa untuk menggemokkan mereka sudah tiba!!)

So the night before the trip, I started baking these cute macaroons:

My macaroons were not in a perfect shape but hey, that is the whole purpose of being homemade, right?? Whatever dishes that are homemade are supposed to look rustic, bukan macam biskut buat kat kilang tu.
(*nak sedapkan hati sendiri nih)

When we reached the camp in Kuala Kangsar, I sandwiched two macaroons with a generous spread of peanut butter. I did not do it earlier because I’m afraid it will turn soggy after the long journey.

As expected, my brothers just love them!
What a great feeling!
Just look at their happy faces!
(*manyak senang ati wooo)

Universal studio, Singapore

Hello people, as we all know chinese new year is coming soon. it's a long weekend, so i guess maybe some of you might have plans in mind for a holiday trip, right?
Last december in year 2010, which was actually last month, my family and i went to the Universal Studio Singapore. It was reaally awesome, and i would love to go back for more.

well, i am here to help you , especially to those who are planning to go to Singapore, Universal Studio. i can assure you that it is going to be a fun trip , although quiet exhausting, but it'll be worth it :)

okay i'll list out to you the tips that could make your trip pleasurable especially if you are going there during peak season ;
Buy you ticket online and print it out, otherwise you will be wasting your time queuing up at the ticket counter. The ticket cost SGD 72.00. (RM 170.00)

Be there early, really early. USS is open from 11am to 7pm. Eight hours is not a long time considering the long waiting time for each ride, lunch crowd etc.
As you enter USS, you will be given a food voucher worth SGD 5.00 and a gift voucher worth SG 5.00 per ticket. You could lump the food voucher together to buy your meal but you have to use the gift voucher separately.
It is advisable to buy a rain coat at the entrance. It cost only SGD 1.50 (RM 3.50). You never know, it might drizzle during your visit there. Kalau basah kuyup, demam, kan susah!
Get a map and aim for the famous ride first. The queue will start to build up really fast. Some of the rides have up to 80 minutes waiting time during peak season. Go for your favorite rides first, you can snap your photos later. Sabar nooo, gambaq boleh ambik lepaih main!
Get a map :P
Beware of NON-HALAL restaurants. There are many restaurants and kiosks in USS but only a few serve halal food. Among the halal ones are: Celebrity Cafe, Mel's Drive, Oasis Spice, Goldilocks, Casadel Wild and Friar
Oasis spice restaurant
Mel's drive Restaurant
Goldilocks Restaurant
If possible don’t bring your bag. For most rides, you will be asked to leave your bag in the locker which is free for the first 30 minutes and subsequently you will be charged SGD 2.00-3.00 for every 20-30 minutes onwards. It is capped at SGD 20 per day. Considering the long waiting time for each ride, you will end-up paying a hefty fee of SGD 20.00 (RM 47.50) per locker. Just imagine how much you need to pay if you keep on changing lockers for each ride! Duit lagi!
You don’t really need to bring your drinking water as there are a lot of water coolers in USS
Wear suitable clothes. T-shirts, jeans and sneakers. Some rides and shows may WET you. Your rain coat will come in handy at this time too

Don’t HOG the photo shot queue la. If you happen to see any character that you love, for instant, Shrek, Fiona, Beettlejuice, Woody woodpecker, Kungfu Panda etc, and would like to take a photo with them, queue-up and take only ONE photo per family/group. Otherwise you will HOG the queue and the person-in-charge will politely ask you to leave the queue. Moral of the story: don’t be a KIASU la, be considerate. Orang lain pun nak bergambar jugak -__-'

All in all it was fun. I was on a tight budget and spent around RM 260.00 there (for each family member), and that does not include buying the souvenir. These are the tips based on my experience. I went to USS last December on the last day of the Soft Launch. Others may have a different opinion. Thats all peeps, till then :P

Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show

I know the Kuala Lumpur International Motor (KLIM) Show is way over, people, but I‘m gonna write about it no matter what!
You have to read this blog until the end to find out WHY I am so excited to write about this show.

For those of you who are crazy about cars, I bet you guys did not miss to witness the car manufacturer’s showcase! It is not as big and grand as the motor shows held overseas (*i didnt say that, the news paper did), nevertheless, it is still a crowd puller here!!
at the entrance *boleh qualify tak kalau nak jadi model, teeeettt GEMOK! haha

with my boyfriend, mister batman *keningkening

ada gaya datin datin , LOL . Okay enough w my photos, check out some of the cars there

eh bumblebeeeeeee

But these are not the reasons that excite me!

I am NOT excited about seeing Mr Bumble Bee or the cars but I am excited because..
MY HANDSOME BROTHER, IMRAN *note the capital letters okay..
won a MOTORBIKE in the KLIM’s lucky draw!!
*inhale exhale inhale exhale, fuuuuuhh
How cool is that, huh? LOL

the interview

the so-called certificate

Now that was what I was talking about!
He is only 14 years old and now he owns a Naza Blitz 150.
Talk about being lucky, huh?
but funny thing is that he didnt have a licence, neither any of the family member has one. lesen kereta adalah, motor takdak meeh. LOLOLOL.

So, as the sister to this young, handsome, clever and lucky guy (*hopefully Imran reads these), I must say that I am so proud of my brother. *tsk tsk tsk. I know he will never forget me, his ONLY sister who cooks delicious cakes, biscuits and meals for him, who willingly gave him facial treatment and more than willing to help him gain weight with my NEVER FAIL Weight Gain Program.
He will therefore, willingly take me for a ride on his new motorbike, lend me his motorbike and if, EVER, he decides to sell it off, he will then use the money to buy me a great birthday present! Yahoooo!!!! (*Imraaaan! are you listening ?) oh please say yes.
okay thats about it for todaaaay i guess.
okay later peeps
toodles love
