:: Little Things That Made My Day ::

Yesterday was kind like a tiring day for me. Class from 9 am till 4 pm (with breaks of course) and then I have to go to work as cleaner...very tiring. But I was happy. I just realise that in this world not all those big and glorius things that make you happy.. but actually, the smallest things in the world can put a smile on you face. Yes it is true, I was walking to work. Dragging both my feet, I push myself to work. As I walk in the nature reserve I saw two bunnies happly hopping around and it did made me smile....

:: New Term New Experience ::

Assalamualaikum and Hola to all....

After two weeks of Easter Holidays... We Marjonian Cohort 4 are now busy with classes. Now, this term we kick-start with a full class. Although currently we have only two subjects, life is a little bit busy due to School Experience placement. For 5 weeks we will be having two days a week school experience. I bet this time it also going to be great just like last year. Last time, for the school placement I was grouped with Nabilah, KB and Mira and I was paired with Mira in one classroom. This year I was paired with Zati only. I like going to England primary schools and have a look on the school and the education system over here. But I still think Malaysian schools are not that far from schools over here. Reasons? This entry is not about that. Maybe another time.

I'm looking forwards to Steve's class. Learning about challenging circumstances in teaching English. Herm... Hope that through this subject I can be prepared for my future teaching profession. Furthermore, Steve himself is a great lecturer. He has a knack in making a lesson interesting and fun. Micheal Hall's subject Comparative Education is rather technical for me. It is hard for me to understand it and I myself have to understand not only Malaysian education but also England and a few other countries education system. The assignment itself is a little bit difficult I think. But hey learning about other countries education system will be fun (I hope!).

Ok that's all for now about my current life. Bye..bye...

p/s: Esok g sekolah!!! yeah!!!

Home-Made Pandan Kaya.

One of my favourite breakfast during my hostel years in secondary school is bread with butter and Kaya. For a few months I have been craving for it. Want to buy kaya from the Continental Shop but it seems that they ran out of stock. So I decided to make my own home-made kaya. Although it doesn't have the motherly taste but I have to say IT taste like a KAYA. Feel free to try to make your own and save some money from buying it from the shop.

Home-Made Pandan Kaya.


Part A.
3 - 4 chicken eggs depending on the size.
300 ml of coconut milk.
240 gm of sugar.
A few drop of Pandan paste (if you want a caramel Kaya chuck this one out).

Part B. (The Caramel)
100 gm sugar.
150 ml or 2/3 cup of hot water.

  1. Combine all the ingredients in Part A together in a bowl and whisk thoroughly until all the sugar dissolve. Then sieve it into a pot.
  2. Then make the caramel. Put the sugar in a small pot and dissolve it on a small fire without the water first. When it turn into a brownish liquid add the hot water and keep on mixing it. Then switch of the fire.
  3. Combine Part A and B together and whisk both ingredient on small fire. Keep whisking until the Kaya thicken.
p/s: If you having problem to thicken the Kaya just add a little of corn-flour mixed with cold water. That what I did hehehehe

:: Malaysia's New Cabinet and New Minister of Education ::

This might be a little bit late but hey I just came back from my holiday and get a grip of the internet just today, trying to catch up with all the things that happened a few days back in Malaysia. I did managed to get a few infos about my beloved country and what's going on over there. So now we have a new cabinet with our 6th Prime Minister Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak and his new Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (which is bound to happen). Reading the new list of cabinet members I can see that there are few new faces and old ones, and there are few old members who were assigned new portfolio. As a person who is not very keen and knowledgeable about our political scenery I will not comment much on Dato' Seri Najib's battlefront in leading the country, but what caught my interest is our new Ministery of Education, our very own Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

:: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin our Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education ::

Now Malaysian education field have a new leader. He (Tan Sri Muhyiddin) preceded this portfolio from Dato' Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein. Congratulations and a big welcome I bid to Tan Sri Muhyiddin for obtaining this portfolio. As we know, Education is always an interest of the nation (and me personally), a lot of people will be looking on what he has to offer. I personally hope that with a new leader, Malaysian education scene will have positive changes and give more (if not just little bit) favour to the teacher. Education is one of the main source in changing our beloved country, thus a good leader is needed in making sure that Malaysian education system will be uphold to the utmost standard.

To Dato' Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein, I would like to say thank you for all the works that he had done while holding the post for 5 years. Our education system underwent a lot of changes under his leadership make it good or bad (erm but mostly I can say good changes). I would also like to say good luck with your new portfolio.

:: Dato' Hishamuddin Tun Hussein former Minister of Education and now Minister of Home Affairs ::

And to the new cabinet under the leadership of our 6th Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Najib, what I have to say is that our Nation ... Malaysia is depending on all of your leadership, good luck and may God be by yourside all the time.

Recipe 7 : Banana Cake.

I just realised that it has been long since I post anything related to recipe hehehhe... It is not because I have stop cooking, it is just that I don't have any interesting recipe to share . But today I think I want to share with all of you my dear reader a simple recipe that I took from the internet. Actually, I have myself few bananas that is not that fresh... at first I intended to make banana fritters but thinking that making banana fritters is too common and a little bit hassle, I made a Banana Cake instead. So for the last entry in this month of March, down here is the recipe. Why don't you try it?

Banana Cake.


4 or 5 medium size bananas.
3 chicken eggs.
1 3/4 cups of self-raising flour.
1/4 cup of corn flour.
1 cup of sugar.
1 cup of cooking oil (preferably vegetable oil).
1 tea-spoon of soda bicarbonate.
A pinch of salt.

  1. Heat your oven first using a medium heat, 160 - 180 degrees.
  2. Whisk the egg and sugar until it fluffy.
  3. Then add the bananas that you have mashed and mix thoroughly.
  4. After that add both flour and soda bicarbonate and mix again.
  5. Next, add the salt and oil. Mix well.
  6. Then, bake it for about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Don't forget to put some oil in the baking tin so that your cake wouldn't stick to it.
The recipe is taken from here: http://www.myresipi.com/top/detail/574

  • I only use 3/4 cup of sugar because I want to get the sweetness of the bananas for my cake.
  • To get a soft and fluffy cake you must sieve a.k.a ayak both flour together with the bicarbonate soda.
p.s.s: Hey what the heck am I doing? Blogging? when others are busy doing their assignment huhuu

Nescafe + Salt = The BEST Nescafe Ever.

Have you ever taste the best Nescafe? I think I have. I was reading a funny love story of a guy who drinks coffee with salt rather than sugar. Then it strucks in my mind, does it taste better with salt?. So out of curiosity, I try to make a coffee with salt. Ok not totally on salt lah.. if not high blood pressure after that. And I can't find pure coffee in our kitchen but hey there's Nescafe and I think that will do. The taste is different from the ordinary Nescafe sweetened by sugar only. Adding a pinch of salt make the aroma better and the taste of coffee emerge stronger on your pallet..owhhhh for someone who is not a coffeeholic this version of Nescafe is just like ...ermmm heaven??? (tooo much I think hehhehe) But still the taste is much better for me. Just to warn everyone, don't drink too much of this version of Nescafe, too much salt in your blood is bad for the health. You can try it once a while but not everytime you have your glass of caffein. Ok then Ja~naa :D
