Don’t ever lose hope in Allah.

When life happens, sometimes it hurt you. The journey you took is longer than everyone else around you. Everyone else seems happier and gets everything that they ever wanted. But you are all alone facing so many difficulties that you don’t think you can bear it anymore. All you can think of is, to give up on yourself and even to lose hope in Allah. Because after all this while, you are tired of waiting for the miracle that everyone keep on telling you about. And you can’t even see the solution to your difficulties. You think that there is no way out anymore and you are worthless.


And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient,(2:155)

In the quran Allah promises us that He is going to test us. But for all those who being tested, and if they are able to be patient, Allah specifically congratulate them.


Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return."(2:156)

If we lose something or we don’t get what we wanted, we have to realize that nothing in this world belongs to us. NOTHING. Even our ability to breathe belongs to Allah.We are capable of nothing without Him.


Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided. (2:157)

Maybe there will be no solution to your problem or maybe Allah only want you to wait a little longer. And the ultimate goal of all the difficulties that you are facing now is to teach you to be Sabr, so you could have patience.


We think that we deserve to get everything in this dunya after facing so much difficulties. We think that we deserve a job, a life partner, a good family, and lots of money. But Allah's real intention for all those difficulties is for you to learn about patience.

Everything in this life is a gift, a gift from Allah.


And be patient, [O Muhammad], and your patience is not but through Allah. (16:127)

Yes, it’s true that we are weak. We want to cry, we want to give up. Because we are simply humans. But then, we can always ask of Allah to give us strength because He is Al-Qowiy, We can always ask Allah to help us be patient with a beautiful patience because He is Al-Soburr. As we are able to be patient, we deserve to be commended by Allah.

If we ever give up, make a lot of istighfar and He always ready to forgive us because He is Al-Ghaffur Ar-Rahim. Remember that Allah always love you and He will never abandon you.

Chicken Grill

This recipe is one of the recipe that I got from my mak cik and I simply modified according to my own taste. Teachers in my school got to taste this recipe during my last jamuan pengawas and they asked whether they can order it or not. So I said, why not because it is very simple recipe that everyone can cook it, plus if you prep everything the night before and the cooking process will take less than 2 hours.






Chicken Grill ala Kakak Siso.  ^o^

Ayam whole leg 6 ketul
2 sudu besar sos tiram
1 sudu besar kicap manis
2 sudu besar minyak masak.
1/4 cawan susu cair
2 inci halia
6 ulas bawang putih
1 sudu kecil lada sulah
1/2 sudu kecil rosemary
garam dan gula secukup rasa. 

next: just blend semua bahan dan perap sahaja ayam. sekurang-sekurangnya 6 jam sebelum masak. 

kaedah masak: option dia, sama ada terus bakar dalam oven guna suhu 260 selama 45 minit or grill atas grill pan dahulu untuk bagi dia ada garis2 hangus yang cantik before masuk oven guna suhu yng sama selama 30 minit. tak pun grill sahaja atas the so called kuali ajaib tu. done. 

boleh hidang dengan blackpepper sauce and coslew ada mash potato pun sedap jugak. Yang namanya makanan kan, mana ada yng tak sedap. lagi-lagi yang mampu menambah lomak macam ni.

Our choice that we have and we had

We each have moments in our lives where we wished we had chosen differently or are unsure of how to proceed.   For me, these moments exist most of the time, in times when thoughtless words were spoken in moments of frustration and in gestures of unkindness to the people that I love.  We get so busy, tired, and hyper-focused on our problems that we act out of habit or automaticity and engage in actions before recognizing our choice. 

If we stopped for a moment, we might observe our tendency to make decisions based on the way we feel and the incessant thoughts running through our minds rather than from the place in our hearts that are the truest expression of who we are.

Maybe for you, that moment existed today, yesterday, or last year. Or maybe it hasn’t happened yet; perhaps it’s a decision you are contemplating but have not decided on, a fork in the road between the person you are capable of being and a decision that is easy, convenient, or safe.

This is a simple reminder that our lives are characterized by actions; that every single action or inaction made is the result of a choice. 

Choices exist in the words we speak, how we express our emotions, and the kinds of people we allow into our lives.  The people we let stay and the people we let go.  We have choices in what we consume, how we feel, and the way we move our bodies. Choices in the purchases we make, the money we do or do not save, the activities we engage in, and the information we take in through the brightly lit screens on our telephones, computers, televisions, and games.  Decisions also exist in what we choose not to do, like not finishing the degree, not quitting the job, or establishing healthy boundaries for ourselves.  You can decide to quiet your voice or shout from the top of your lungs, to pause, or to constantly move from one place of busyness to the next.  Maybe you routinely make the decision to treat yourself with less love and kindness than you deserve.

This is a reminder that we can choose to show up in every situation with the parts of ourselves that are calm, compassionate, honest, wise, and healthy.  And on some days and in some moments you might be able to rationalize your actions even when the deepest part of yourself knows you are wrong.  Maybe you’re frustrated and justified in your anger, but you still have the choice to let go of that hurt.  You still have the choice to move on, to accept what is, and to forgive.  You can take a step in the direction of your goals despite how difficult the journey may be, and no matter how unmotivated you feel; this is a gentle reminder that changes happen in our lives only when we choose to make them.



You’ll encounter situations that break your heart and still you can choose to put the pieces back together, to heal, to love deeply, and trust again.  You’ll meet people who are hurtful and unkind and you can still offer them grace and the light that you are.   And when you can’t offer that, perhaps make the decision to not act.  Your choice is in the inaction, in the pause. You may find situations that challenge you, and you can choose to try, to learn, and to grow.
When we choose to act in congruence with the best version of ourselves- with the light and loving kindness that exists within all of us- we slowly start to become all that we already are.
we exist in the depth of our choices.
and don't ever forget to ask from Allah to guide us to make the best decision out of the choices He gives to us.

Begedil oh begedil

Bukan lah rajn sangat nak meng update recipe dalam blog ni. Tapi sebab malas nak taip recipe yang sama banyak-banyak kali. So everytime orang mintak aku just bagi link blog. mudahkan. meringankan kerja.

Begedil ni pun antara benda yang aku bukanlah hantu sangat, tapi my family memang suka. Even time bulan puasa memang akan ada order yang masuk. Sangat la kagum tengok orang makan semangkuk soto boleh letak sampai 4-5 biji begedil.

Reminder: aku tak jual, I cook only on personal request. Plus macam kawan-kawan abah mintak untuk order tu, aku kira ambik duit untuk beli bahan je. upah la seposen dua untuk 3-5 jam buat mende alah ni.

recipe ni kalau buat sikit tak susah pun. tapi renyah kalu buat untuk banyak-banyak.

And minimun biasa sekali godek tak kurang dari 3kg kentang. dapat dekat 150 biji begedil. size dia suka hati besar kecik.

Begedil ni, kalau buat banyak memang untuk stok di frozen kan sekali la.
So kalau tetiba rasa nak makan soto, just tinggal buat kuah je, kluar kan begedil yang frozen tu tadi.

so recipe yang share ni, untuk 1kg kentang. ikut size gentel la, maybe dapat la dalam 35-50 biji. tengok size.



recipe

bahan-bahan

1kg kentang ( dikukus @ rebus)
250g isi ayam dicincang halus(kalau nak guna yang isi ayam frozen pun boleh or daging kalau suka)
1 labu bawang besar( cincang halus, bukan blend ye)
6 ulas bawang putih minced
1 inci halia minced
1 cawan daun sup dipotong halus
1/2 cawan daun bawang di potong halus
3 sudu besar bawang goreng

seasoning.
4 sudu besar gula
1 sudu besar garam
1-2 sudu besar lada sulah
1 sudu perencah hilal(optional)

p/s: untuk seasoning n, baru anggaran kasar. tambah atau kurangkan mengikut cita rasa masing-masing.

how to cook?

cara dia terlalu lah mudah. first lenyek kentang tu sampai betul hancur. then masuk semua bahan lain dan gaul sebati. Then boleh gentel mengikut size yang digemari.

untuk goreng: biasa guna pan dekat rumah sebab dia leper, letak minyak anggar dia cukup-cukup tenggelam je. tak payah sampai begedl tu berenang dalam tu. celup telur then goreng. 
reminder, time goreng tu terbalikkan sekali je, kalau tak memang hancur la begedil tu. bab menggoreng la leceh sekali. kalu rumah ni, kalau time menggoreng memang guna garfu je. untuk terbalikkan or even utk angkat.


tips: untuk kentang biasa cari yang isi dia warna kuning, kalau guna jenis russet isi dia putih tu. setakat experiment dekat rumah jarang la menjadi begedil nya. dan menggoreng tu guna api sederhana sahaja. p/s: kalau untuk rebus or kukus tu, biasa basuh bersih-bersih kentang tu and masak dengan kulit-kulit dia sekali. dah lepas empuk and nak lenyek tu baru buang kulit dia..

My kind of pasta sauce.

Truthfully, I actually got tired of eating my own pasta.
why?
personally because I think I haven't stop cooking it since the last hari raya.
open houses, order from family and friends, plus for my school feast and my mama.
I'm more toward marinara kind of person rather than carbonara or alfredo sause.

Still I am happy that people like it. For this recipe it goes a long way of try and error.
even until today, I still change the recipe according to my taste. and sometime I change because to cut the cost when people order from me. I can't say that I'm taking order or sell it because it's just only personal request. 

plus please mind that recipe total not certified by anyone. just merely try and error.
if you like it, totally my pleasure to share this. This recipe for 4-5 servings.
