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.


Recipe

Ingredient

200g small dice boneless chicken
1 onion small dice
2 tablespoon mince garlic
1/2 cup of slice celery
1 cup of mushroom
4 pieces of bay leaves
2 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoon of flour
1 liter of milk
salt and pepper(or black pepper up to your taste) to taste
1 chicken cube.
oregano and fresh parsley.
half cup of any cheese of your choice.

How to Cook?

1. heat around 3 tablespoon of oil (any cooking oil or olive oil)
2. add onion,garlic and celery. stir it for a while.
3. add your chicken and season with salt and pepper. stir until the chicken is cook.
4. put all the ingredient on one side of your pot. put your fire on the smallest volume.
5. add butter and let it melt and add the flour. stir it for a while with the whole ingredient.
5. slowly add the milk. make sure that the flour not clump together before you put the rest of the milk.
6. put the rest of the ingredient. let it cook. 
7. serve with any kind of pasta.

for variety.
add meatball and use any short pasta and turn it into one pot pasta.
how?
boil your pasta half cook, throw the water and put the sauce you already prepare and add some meat ball. let it cook. together in one pot. then it ready to serve. p/s: for extra tang, you can even bake the pasta using the same sauce and the sprinkle with lots of mozzarella and Parmesan. 

p/s: for the thickness of the sauce, you can change according to your taste. less thick just add some water and for extra thickness your add more flour or maybe heavy cream. 

Totally ready to go.

she


how she wish she can tell people easily how she felt
how she wish she just can cry out when she feels sad
how she wish she can just smile all day long when she is happy
how she wish she can share all her burden on someone else.

but that just a wish.
nothing come as easy as what she wish for.
when an introvert trying to appear as extrovert as possible
usually it is easy for everyone else
but things always getting harder for her.

sometime her extrovert part just want to let it out whenever she can
but her introvert part just can't find the right way to do it.
every time she try, she end up having a regret.

because she don't want to have any regret
she took pride in appearing as if she cared less
as if she didn't care at all
that way she trick her own mind
knowing that once people left her behind
she won't fall as hard as when others push her

just because she kept all close, her feeling, her word and her soul
believe that what she has inside her is bigger than the world.

Catatan buat Kita Generasi Merdeka


perjuangan menggapai kemerdekaan mungkin telah lama berjaya

kemerdekaan juga telah kita kecapi

namun perjuangan mengekalkan kemerdekaan itu masih terlalu jauh.
mengenal erti merdeka yang sebenar itu bukan mudah,apatah lagi dalam membina generasi penyambung kemerdekaan.
sebagai pendidik akau dapat merasakan pahit getir mendidik anak bangsa,

tempatku bukanlah jauh di pendalaman

tempatku bukan lah ketinggalan dari pembangunan teknologi

tempatku bukan lah yang tak cukup infrastruktur nya

tempatku semuanya cukup bah kan lengkap.

guru-gurunya juga graduan dari universiti

dedikasinya mereka hingga sudi bekerja 7 hari seminggu.


namun generasi muda itu,

bila dalam jiwa mereka hanya tahu soal keseronokan,

bila jiwa mereka meronta minta kebebasan,

bila jiwa mereka hanya mahu yang mudah-mudah

bila jiwa mereka tidak lagi mengenal erti hormat.
tidak dinafi masih ada segelintir yang tidak begitu,

namun melihat pada majoriti, itulah hakikatnya.


generasi yang mahu hidup dalam bebas dan gah

tapi sebenarnya mereka hanya hidup dalam kepompong

iaitu kepompong yang bernama hiburan,

mereka merasa terlalu bebas hanya kerana mereka mampu mencapai apa sahaja di bawah jaringan internet.

sedang mereka lupa soal ilmu dalam erti kata sebenar.

merdeka kah mereka andai tanpa ilmu menjadi kompas kehidupan?

generasi merdeka yang ada dihadapanku

adalah generasi yang merasa buku sebagai musuh bukan rakan

generasi yang merasa nasihat guru dan ibubapa itu sebagai momokan menghina


anak bangsa,

merdeka ini takkan beerti tanpa mu

merdeka ini diperjuangkan untuk kamu

untuk menjadi warga bangsa yang bangga, bebas dan bermaruah.


bangga menjadi pewaris kemerdekaan

bebas sebagai pencinta ilmu

bermaruah dalam menegakkan kebenaran 


p/s: catatan merdeka, 

semoga Malaysia akan Merdeka dengan erti kata yang sebenar.

just myself



find myself around the corner
looking for someone that
notice me for who I am

find myself standing
in front of the mirror 
looking for someone 
that can reflect the best of me

find myself walking 
on the empty beach 
looking for the path
that can define the real me

somehow I can only
find me
my own reflection
on my own footsteps.

Happy and Sadness



Sadness has a gravity that can weight down both body and mind.
Sadness can turn in a depression which can become addictive.
But happiness floats
It just happens in its own time and place.
It comes and goes as it pleases.
The true happiness has no reasons.
Because happiness is you.
Who you are is happiness.
And when you're who you're, you're naturally happy.

Ramadhan Reading List

Glad that I'm able to complete my reading list for Ramadhan.

Seriously. The busier you're the better you're with your time management.
Even if I have more free time, I don't think that I'm able to read this much in a month.

1. Little Prince- which I got it from Medan Airport as my souvenir from Medan Trip. Yes I was home on the first sahur. very small and cute book. eventhough this book is something meant for the kids. But I love how it remind us again about the values that we adult already forget.

2. Menjejak Cinta di Bumi Tuhan by Wardah Abdullah
One of my favourite read for this year so far. I don't know what to say but I do cry a lot for this one.
this is another compulsive book shopping, but totally worth it. do read it. Totally recommended. not a typical travelogue book.

3. Inspirasi Khutbah Nouman Ali Khan
who love his talk, would love to have this book.  really touch your heart about the beauty of the Quran.

4. Saat Aku Tergelincir lagi-Mohd Hafizul Faiz
well. this book remind me of my campus life. the pain and glory. miss it so much. remind me of the lesson I learned there and how should I use it now. facing this challenge of falling and gettng up again everyday in life.

5. Travelog Minda Tajdid : MAZA
collection of his blog post. always an eye openng statement from him. what I learned from him, is that. whatever statement you read. don't judge but think.

6.Allah Loves ME.- Jerry D Gray.
His journey to know Islam and after he revert to Islam. but there are things that I don't like. about this book too. the conspiration vs fact.

p/s: I keep my reading journal so that I can remember what I learn and hope that I will not forget it.

Question that has no answers.

Assalamualaikum and Ramadhan Kareem everyone?

How is your Ramadhan so far? Hopefully we all are doing better InsyaAllah.

By the way, today I went to my Pok house to send  him some food for iftar.
It's been a while, because I know that I failed to manage my time properly.
Pok is my other ayah, someone who grew me up and only Allah know how much I love him. He is the man of advice. Pok and my arwah Che' took care of my when a was a little girl. And forever I am their so called adik aka the anak bongsu pinjam.
I remember how hard for my mama and abah need to "pujuk" me to come home with them especially during the weekend.

Today was just like the other days but to advice session feel more like a tembak session, especially when he open the marriage question.
No matter what story I talk about today, Pok just know how to twist it back to the marriage issues. I can't help but laughing.
I know he just worried as much as my mama does.

I'm not the type who would go to the terasa hati point when people ask me about that question, especially if I know that they care. Not the one who with the "nyenyeh" intention la.
All I can say now, to ease his heart: InsyaAllah the time will come, only He knows better.

Regarding this issues, I know many of my friends are facing it too. No matter how you handle it, never ever let your self down. Remember that your life now is not only about you and me. There are more to that. And the biggest purpose of our life is to be His servant. Servent to The Almighty Allah.

You ladies out there, don't just waiting for that right time to come.
Now is the time for you to make you a better you.
Now is the time for you to make you a better Servant.
Now is the time for you to make you a better daughter
Now is the time for you to make you a better reader
Now is the time for you to make you a better leaner
Now is the time for you to make you a better explorer
Now is the time for you to make you a better giver
Now is the time for you to make you a better human being.
Fill your life with a greater purpose and understanding.

If the time come, say Alhamdulillah
If not , remember that you Always have Him,
The Greatest who will love you, take care of you, will never leave you and always be there for you, because He is closer to you that your own veins.

Mak Cik Baik di Hiroshima

Major throwback. Sementara menunggu masa naik flight untuk trip seterusnya. Saja mengimbau cerita yang lepas. Hehehe



Setelah 4 hari berpusing-pusing di Osaka,Kyoto dan Kobe. Kami turun ke bahagian lebih bawah di Jepun iaitu Hiroshima.

Asalnya kami ingin bergerak seawal pagi. Namun dek keletihan kerana banyak makan buah langsat di area Osaka dan Kyoto. Masing melajakkan waktu rehat dan mengambil masa untuk repacking barang-barang kami.

Agak tengahari kami meninggalkan rumah Faizah, student malaysia di sana. (Tq so much for your kind treatment Faie.) Keluar pulak hujan renyai-renyai. Tapi yang penting sebelum tinggal Osaka, sekali lagi kami singgah di kedai 100yen berdekatan umah Faie, mendapatkan stock hotpack.

Dari Osaka station kami menaiki Bullet train ke Hiroshima. Memakan masa lebih kurang 1 jam setengah. Waktu kami sampai di Hiroshima. Hari dah beransur gelap. Winter lah katakan. Malamnya awal.



Sampai di Hiroshima kami blur2, berfikir bagaimana cara terbaik untuk menuju ke JHoppers Hostel yang dah kami booking. Dikaunter pertanyaan. Mereka cadangkan kami menaiki Hiroshima City tour bus, sebab JrPass kami cover sekali. Dah ditunjukkan di mana kami perlu berhenti dan dimana kami boleh mengambil bus. Akak dekat kaunter tunjuk escalator, sampai kat escalator tu, dua-dua side menunjuk arah keatas.

Ah sudah! Nak tanya banyak-banyak, kami ni ada masalah interaksi bahasa, walaupun kadang diorang faham apa yang kami cakap, kebanyakan diorang reply in Japanese jugak. So agak pointless la.

Dalam duduk mencari arah, mungkin sebab muka kami-kami ni terlalu blurr. Datang la seorang mak cik (tapi aku agak umur dia dah tahap nenek-nenek la), datang nak tolong kami. Dekat tangan aku tu ada pamplet bus tu, yang warna merah menyala.

Dia cakap kami tak faham, dari bahasa tubuhnya, dia tau kat mana nak naik bus tu. Dia suruh kami ikut dia. (Sila bayangkan keadaan kami dengan beg berbondon -bondon). Laju gila dia jalan. Kami ni dah tahap lari-lari anak nak ikut dia jalan. Sampai la dekat satu lift, dia suruh kami naik untuk turun tingkat bawah.
Dia tunjuk muka dia, and cakap dia tunggu kami dekat bawah. Fyi, mak cik tu turun ikut tangga biasa. Kami masa tu macam percaya tak percaya jugak. Ye ke dia nak tunggu kami kat bawah, ni dia suruh kami naik lift pasal kesian kat kami bawak beg banyak-banyak ni la kot.

Sampai kat bawah memang mak cik tu tunggu kami dekat bawah. Sampai je dekat dia, cepat-cepat dia suruh kami lari. Dia pun lari sekali la, dia hantar kami sampai depan muka pintu bus, siap bagitau beratur macam mana.

Ajaibnya, kami seolah-olah faham apa dia cakap, sedangkan dia berbahasa jepun kami ni berbahasa English time tu. Yang last tu baru la kami dok ulang, arigato gozaimasu, arigato gozaimasu.
Plus malu jugak la kami yang muda belia ni turun lift, dia selamba turun tangga. Dah tu dia sampai dulu pada kami.




Dah selamat naik bus, kemudian bersambung episode makan buah langsat nak cari JHoppers Hostel.


Walaupun aku tak tau nama mak cik tu apa, tapi memang nak ucap terima kasih atas budi baik makcik tolong kami, strangers di bumi Samurai.

P/s: suhu paling best sepanjang kami dekat jepun ada time dekat hiroshima. 16 darjah celcius. Best je jalan-jalan.

Book Review: Love Anthony

A long journey, a busy life. 

it has been a whle since I update my blog. sorry for that. It just that I got caught in life.

Last night I just fell in love so deeply in one book that been stuck on my bookshelf for quite a while and unread.

The moment I start reading it, I just can't put it down. 
The meaningful and beautiful story of the people around autism.

The unspoken love of the boy with autistic, the mum, the dad and everyone.
How they face the judging eyes, How they handle their breakdown son when he had no voice to tell you what he want except for the scream and hurting himself.

The author trying to give the boy a voice, telling everyone what the boy might think.
At the same time question you about the what make you feel wanted, what make you feel safe, what make you feel love and what make you happy?

If you ask me that question. I don't think I would be able to answer that for, without me going into the deep thought and agony.

I always believe that, parents who are blessed with these miracle kids are the greatest parents and Allah send them one of His Angel, because they always be that little kids with no sins except for pure love for their parents.


Olivia; Why god send me Anthony? Why He give him the so called Autism? Why can't anyone fix that condition? Why can't my beautiful boy, just tell me that he is happy. tell me that he love me, allow me to hug him  or even just look into my eyes. Why I have no answer for it? why I have to face this?

Anthony: my voice is broken but my brain are not. I know that I'm not going to be the perfect son, I'm not gong to grow up as a doctor or lawyer, I'm just going to be me. The reason why I'm here because I'm here to teach you the uncondtional love. 
people who loved others condtionally. But you love me even though you heard not my voice, I can't tell you I love you, You can't hug me, but still you love me mum. Unconditionally. 


I give this book 5 stars. The moment I got attached to the book. I just can't put down the book. please read it. recommended for everyone. 

p/s: Do stop that judging eyes when you see one of them. Because YOU! you have no right to judge.

Happy Journaling.

When I want to be better, I need to explore more about myself. 


I need to keep on trying something that I never tried before.

Whether I'm good at it or not, trying itself is part of the process for me to live my life happily the way I want and I think worth it, not the way people want me to be.

Maybe my journey, not the same as the rest of you. Something we just can't force it to come, but put that trust that when Allah said that it the time for me and you, He will send us what the best for us. For a time being, just be happy with what we have. And keep on trying to improve ourselves.

My current obsession: journaling.

I always keep a journal, but never the way I did now.My journal usually just some thought and idea. Nothing secretive or anything. Simple journal, black and white Because I always believe that arts are just not my thing. But lately, the technology that we have really help. Especially the online tutorials and of course online shop. 









P/s: Live the way we feel happy about ourselves,  not others. And of course our life is to please Allah. InsyaAllah

Nasi Pakapow

Pagi tadi ada kawan Uia mesej dalam group, mintak resepi pakapow. Teringat katanya. Aku pernah belikan dulu-dulu masa zaman uia dan lepak makan sama-sama.

Memang agak famous jugak la pakapow ni kat kedai makan area gombak dulu.

aku pulak minah motor yang selalu keluar cuba makan kat luar dan kadang-kadang beli jugak la makanan untuk kawan-kawan. ada jugak yang rindu rupanya.

kakak buat dua version telur: dadar and poached egg

Sampai ibu mengandung mintak resepi. Walaupun sebenarnya aku sendiri pun baru dua tiga kali pernah buat. Tu pun kira try and error. dah lama sungguh tak buat menu ni. Cuba jugak la untuk kawan aku sorang ni.


So sebelum nak bagi resepi kat orang, kene la experimen dulu kat dapur sendiri.

Resepi ini pun improvise ikut selera dan bahan yang available.

bahan banyak ni cukup la untuk 6-7 orang makan.

Sebelum tu kenapa pakapow and apa dia pakapow ni?


Kita panggil pakapow tapi sebutan sebetulnya adalah Phad Krapao atau pad krapao. Pad krapao bermakna Basil stir fry atau digoreng dengan daun thai basil krapao. Ini adalah masakan yang berasal dari thailand.

 

senang cerita daging cincang goreng dengan daun selasih.

 

resepi paling simple dan bahan yang sangat ringkas.

 

bahan

1/2 kg daging cincang

1 biji bawang holland potong dadu kasar2.

10 tangkai cili padi, hiris

setengah tin cendawan butang, hiris

2-3 tangkai daun selasih fresh/ basil.

 

seasoning

1/2 sudu besar garam

1 sudu besar gula

2 sudu besar sos tiram

1/2 sudu besar perencah hilal atau perasa

2 sudu kecil black pepper 

1 biji limau nipis

 

cara-cara:

1. tumis bawang sampai keemasan, masukkan separuh cili yang dihiris tadi dan daun basil sampai naik bau.

2. masukkan daging dan garam dan perencah hilal.

3. sampai daging masak, dan masukkan seasoning lain dan baki cili padi dan cendawan. sebelum angkat perah limau nipis. gaul rata.

4. then siap, makan dengan nasi putih panas dan telur mata kerbau sebijik. kalau rasa kering sangat partnerkan dengan sup kosong. nyum3.

dah siap.

petang tadi dah  hadap semangkuk. sambil tulis ni dah lapar balik. 


selamat mencuba.

tempting betul telur kuning tu.

kalau perasan, resepi asal ada letak sos ikan. tapi sebab tak berapa gemar so tak letak dan cendawan and limau nipis tu kakak improvise ikut cita rasa sendiri. use your creativiti untuk sesuaikan dengan taste bud masing-masing. dan boleh jugak ganti daging dengan ayam.

enjoy!!

Cream Tomato Spagetti

Semalam mama dah cakap nak mintak tolong buatkan dia spagetti sause untuk potluck kat sekolah dia.. kakak cakap on je, cume mintak tolong mama belikan barang-barang sebab balik sekolah lewat semalam.

Habis kerja lewat semalam, 6.50 petang baru sampai rumah. lepas magrib tertido sampai pagi. 

Pagi tadi pukul 5 bangun, tersentak la sebab sepatutnya prepare sause semalam lagi.

terkocoh-kocoh ke dapur sampai baju kerja pun mintak adik yang iron kan. 1 jam bersilat kat dapur. dah la bahan tak prep langsung lagi, huhuhu

Alhamdulillah. kalut-kalut selesai jugak masak dalam masa yang dijanjikan.

Portion masak pagi tadi agak besar jugak untuk 20-30 orang makan.



Sause

bahan-bahan
2kg tomato ( rebus dan buang kulit)
6 ulas bawang putih
2 biji bawang holland ( dadu )
3 tin ready made spagetti sause (prego/kimball)
2 kg isi ayam kisar
black pepper 3 sudu besar
1-2 sudu oregano
3 helai bay leaves
gula 7-10 sudu besar ( ikut cita rasa)
carrot 3 batang ( parut halus)
3 tin cendawan butang ( slice)
garam 3-5 sudu, depend pada kuantiti air jugak.
3-4 liter air
roux -
1 ketul butter
3 cup tepung gandum
2 tin susu cair
spagetti/any pasta you like. 4-5 packet should be enough

 


steps

1.rebus tomato dengan minyak sikit, dalam 2 minit, tos dan siat kulit dia.
2. masukkan tomato, bawang putih, oregano dan blend.
3. tumis bawang besar dan masuk kan isi ayam. lepas masak keluar kan balik dari periuk.
4. prepare roux( sebab kuah nak banyak, bajet ciput so kakak pekatkan pakai roux)
    roux- cairkan butter, masukkan tepung gaul rata dan masukkan susu perlahan-lahan. 
5. selesai roux, baru masuk bahan yang dah kisar tadi dan sos ready made. masukkan sekali air daun bay gula, garam dan black pepper. 
   note: ( air tu letak 2.5 liter dulu, tambah air bergantung pada kepekatan sauce)
6. dah mendidih, masukkan ayam yang dah masak tadi, carrot dan mushroom.
7. biarkan sauce mendidih lama sikit dan boleh adjust rasa dan kepekatan dia.
8. done. rebus spagetti then makan.
   note : if terlebih air and kuah tu macam cair sikit, boleh tambah roux or lebihkan tomato la kot.     hari ni masak kalut-kalut sikit so portion dia still kene adjust. sebab pagi tadi kuah cair skit so kakak buat roux sampai 2 kali. plus version asal ada letak cheese, ni sebab semua under calories control. so no cheese tapi rasa dia tak lari sangat la. wehehe

kakak suka version ni sebab dia creamy sikit at the same time ada masam, manis tomato dan hint pedas black pepper.   





 Happy cooking and happy holiday.

Thursday is a happy day.
because Friday is a holiday..
Alhamdulillah survive.

Handle meeting pun kene ada skill la.

Di Uji dengan Mesyuarat ke laut!!




yes, tak dinafikan perasaan yang datang ni, rasa tak larat nak hadap. nak luah kat siapa pun tak mampu. kerana semua orang dah terima style tu sebahagian dari adat or norm kehidupan mereka.

penat bila dipaksa bekerja dengan perasaan tidak gembira dan terpaksa berpura-pura. Sedangkan people know me as a bold person. Bab perasaan, intro2 perkenalan memang tahap kene campak belakang, only kerja. straight forward. meeting pun macam tu, kalau meeting panjang dan kelaut. memang aku hangin.

Nak bergurau, nak melawak, share cerita ke. tu semua kat luar. ajak minum coffee then aku layan. 

dalam meeting tolong la straight forward. aku dah duduk depan mata, dalam mesyuarat rasmi. Nak bagi arahan, tapi arahan tergantung. ayat yang bagi : soal masalah tu, kene tengok balik, bincang balik. nak bincang bila? nak tengok apa lagi? pro and cons semua dah bagi senarai solution pun dah ada. yang aku mintak kata putus je. susah sangat ke nak bagi, susah sangat ke faham. meeting 2-3 jam. satu apa pun tak dapat kata putus. 


aku tak kan pernah faham kenapa perlu meeting yang meleret kalau meeting sekadar melibatkan makluman bukan perbincangan.

sebagai apa pun kita, bab pertama nak kene hadam adalah pengurusan mesyuarat aka meeting management.



Meetings are unpopular because they take up time--usually that of many people. However, there are good meetings and there are bad meetings. Meetings can be an excellent use of time when they are well-run. Unfortunately, the converse is also true, and it seems that time-wasting, poorly run meetings are far too common.
 
This article describes 6 rules of meeting management that can help make meeting more productive and less frustrating. Each of the rules requires commitment from all participants.

Golden Rule #1: Run your meetings as you would have others run the meetings that you attend.
This is the most fundamental Golden Rule of Meeting Management. Running an effective meeting--or being a good meeting participant--is all about being considerate of others. All the other Golden Rules of meeting management flow from this principle.

Golden Rule #2: Be prepared and ensure that all the participants can be as well.
Distribute the meeting agenda a day before the meeting (earlier if there is a lot of advance reading or preparation to do) and make sure everyone has access to any relevant background materials.

Participants, of course, have the obligation of reviewing the agenda and background materials and arriving at the meeting prepared. If the meeting organizer has not provided adequate information about the objectives of the meeting, the participants should take the initiative to ask. No one should arrive at a meeting not knowing why they are there--and what is supposed to be accomplished.

If there is nothing to put on the agenda, the organizer should ask him/herself whether there really needs to be a meeting.

Golden Rule #3: Stick to a schedule.
Start the meeting on time and end it on time (or even early). Starting on time requires discipline by the organizer and the participants. Arriving late shows a lack of consideration for all those who were on time. But if all participants know that the organizer is going to start the meeting right on time, there is a much greater likelihood that everyone else will make the effort to be punctual.

Finishing in a timely manner is also crucial. If everyone agreed that the meeting would last an hour, the meeting should not run any longer than that. Keeping the agenda realistic is important, of course. Finally, if only 20 minutes are required to accomplish the meeting objectives, the meeting should end after only 20 minutes. It would be a waste of everyone's time to let it go on any longer than that.

The time at which the meeting is scheduled is also important. Scheduling regular meetings for inconvenient times (e.g. after the end of the official work day) can have a very negative impact on morale. Emergencies are a reality for most organizations and may necessitate meetings at odd times, but routine meetings should be scheduled at a time that is reasonably convenient for the participants.

Golden Rule #4: Stay on topic not stray from it.
Most groups have at least one person who tends to go off on a tangent or tell irrelevant* war stories during meetings. Whether this is the organizer or one of the participants, all meeting participants have the responsibility of gently guiding the meeting back to the substantive agenda items.

*Note: Not all storytelling is bad; storytelling can be very useful if it is being used deliberately as a mentoring or teaching tool.But if keep repeating the same story, over and over and over again, how to think people will find it useful.

Golden Rule #5: Don't hold unnecessary meetings.
Carefully assess how often routine meetings really need to be held. For example, if you have daily staff meetings, how productive are they? Can they be held less frequently? Or, perhaps, can they be held standing up someplace and kept to a few minutes? Staff meetings are crucial vehicles for maintaining good communication in the office, but it is important to find the right balance between good communication and productive uses of time.

Golden Rule #6: Wrap up meetings with a clear statement of the next steps and who is to take them.
If any decisions were made at the meeting (even if the decision was to "study the issue more") the meeting organizer should clearly summarize what needs to be done and who is going to do it. If the organizer fails to do this, one of the participants should take the initiative to speak up and request clarification of the next steps. This is crucial. If the participants leave the meeting and no one is accountable for taking action on the decisions that were made, then the meeting will have been a waste of everyone's time.

These simple rules can go a long way in making meetings more productive. Implementing them is not always easy, as they require preparation and discipline, but doing so can make a huge difference to the productivity of your organization. 

Plus less people will hate you as you call them for a meeting because they know you only call for a meeting for a necessary reasons and they know that they will get something from it.

Antara pilihan dan rezeki

Dalam mengatur perjalanan hidup, akan pasti untuk kita berhadapan dengan pilihan-pilihan hidup yang sentiasa menguji diri kita.

Saat membuat pilihan pilihan tersebut, mungkin merupakan saat dimana hubungan kita dengan Allah paling rapat dan pergantungan kita hanya terletak semata-mata pada Tuhan Pemilik hati ini.

Perlu bersyukur andai satu saat dalam hidup kita punya pilihan yang sukar yang buat kita buntu, yang mungkin sebenarnya cara Allah nak panggil kita rapat kembali pada Dia.

"It was We who created man, and We know what dark suggestions his nafs (self) makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein." Quran 50:16

Sesungguhnya kita ni hamba yang selalu lupa, namun Dia yang Ar-Rahaman Ar-Rahim tak pernah lupakan  kita malah terlalu hampir dengan kita.

2016, pelbagai tanggungjawab baru hadir bersama rezeki yang tak pernah terlintas pun dihati dan akal aku. Semua hanya sekadar angan-angan yang aku tak pernah terlintas untuk aku usahakan, kerana pada aku ianya hanyalah sekadar a far reaching dreams.

Kalau aku pandang benda yang hadir ini sebagai pilihan yang mengganggu perancangan-perancangan yang dah aku atur selama ni, mungkin aku akan depress. Tapi aku cuba untuk memandang tanggungjawab yang hadir ini sebagai rezeki yang Allah hadiahkan untuk aku. Hikmahnya harus aku cari dan fahami.

Macam-macam cara Allah hadirkan jawapan pada persoalan dan permintaan kita, bahkan mungkin dengan sesuatu yang tak pernah kita pinta pun. Alhamdulillah , pandamglah dengan pandangan hikmah, maka kita ada memandang sesuatu dengan pandangan hamba yang bersyukur.

Bersyukur dengan sesuatu yang kita ada bukan merungut dengan sesuatu yang tiada pada kita.

Sesungguhnya, pilihan yang hadir adalah panggilan dari Allah untuk kita bergantung harap pada Dia dan kembali dari kealpaan kita. Dan rezeki atau jawapan hadir walaupun berbeza dari pilihan asal kita ada hadiah dan rancangan Allah untuk kita mencari Hikmahnya

Hikmah Kembara 1 : Doa dan Kyoto

Hendaklah seorang musafir memperbanyak do’a ketika dalam perjalanan karena do’a seorang musafir adalah salah satu do’a yang mustajab (terkabulkan). Dari Abu Hurairah, Nabi shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam bersabda, ثَلاَثُ دَعَوَاتٍ لاَ شَكَّ فِيهِنَّ دَعْوَةُ الْمُسَافِرِ وَالْمَظْلُومِ وَدَعْوَةُ الْوَالِدِ عَلَى وَلَدِهِ “Tiga do’a yang tidak diragukan lagi terkabulnya yaitu do’a seorang musafir, do’a orang yang terzholimi, dan do’a orang tua kepada anaknya.”[6]

 Kyoto yang indah mengajar aku satu nilai.


Hendaklah seorang yang bermusafir memperbanyakkan doa ketika dalam perjalanan kerana doa seorang musafir adalah salah satu doa yang mustajab.

dari Abu Hurairah, Rasulullah bersabda

"Tiga doa yang tidak diragukan lagi terkabulnya yaitu doa seorang musafir, doa orang yang dizalimi, dan doa orang tuanya kepada anak-anaknya"

Sangat beruntung rasanya.diberi kesempatan. dikurniakan rezeki. mengambil setiap kesempatan yang ada, untuk berbicara dengan hati sendiri dengan tuhan yang sentiasa menjaga kami disepanjang perjalanan itu. 

Sewaktu belum berangkat haritu, ada sahabat-sahabat yang mengirimkan doa. kalau ikut layak, pasti la tak layak sebab aku tahu aku ini terlalu banyak dosa. namum aku cuba sebaiknya. 

 sewaktu di Jepun ada perkara yang aku lihat buat aku insaf, tak dinafikan mereka masyarat yang sangat tertib dari sudut adab dan budaya, namun aku dapat rasakan betapa yang hilang dari hidup mereka adalah agama dan lebih specific,Islam itu sendiri.

Sebagai seorang muslim, yang jadi kepuasan dalam melakukan kebaikan adalah pahala yang telah dijanjikan dan kita tahu faedahnya adalah untuk diri sendiri juga. Untuk mereka, yang aku perhatikan. kebaikan yang mereka lakukan adalah memuaskan hati dan pandangan masyarakat. tapi aku memang tak nafikan mereka sangat baik, dan terlalu banyak yang aku mahu belajar dari nilai dan budaya masyarakat Jepun, tapi aku percaya dengan Islam maka barulah mereka sempurna. 

contohnya, dalam hal doa. mungkin kita dah biasa tengok dalam drama-drama korea atau jepun sebelum ini. di mana wish mereka digantung indah.

ثَلاَثُ دَعَوَاتٍ لاَ شَكَّ فِيهِنَّ دَعْوَةُ الْمُسَافِرِ وَالْمَظْلُومِ وَدَعْوَةُ الْوَالِدِ عَلَى وَلَدِهِ

Rumitnya process mereka mahu berdoa, membeli sekeping papan yang berharga lingkungan 500-800 yen bah kan ada yang lebih mahal dari itu, macam-macam yang dipinta, kebahagian, lulus peperiksaan. Kemudian perlu digantung ditempat-tempat tertentu. Namun, tak terfikirkah mereka, pada siapa mereka gantungkan permintaan-permintaan, pada siapa mereka harapkan untuk menunaikan permintaan itu? tapi tetap mereka berusaha dan meminta.

 
Sedang kita yang Muslim ini, berdoa itu, dimana-mana sahaja, bila-bila masa yang kita rasa mahu dan perlu, percuma tanpa harga bahkan dijanjikan pula pahala.
Tapi kita tak mahu, memayahkan, merumitkan.
sungguh, Mintalah, pohonlah,
Dia Yang Maha Mendengar segala permintaan dan isi hati kita.

Bersyukurlah kita yang dilahirkan seorang Muslim, andai tidak belum pasti kita ketemu. Sesungguhnya nikmat Iman dan Islam itu sebesar-besar nikmat yang kita kecapi. hargai lah. 

peringatan ini untuk aku yang selalu lupa dan alpa.

semoga kita terus berusaha untuk menjadi sebaik-baik penyambung mata rantai Perjuangan Rasulullah.

Jejak Tanah Samurai Part 3:Osaka

Tanah Osaka.

Kuala Lumpur to Kansai Airport: AirAsia X 4,945 km about 5 hours and 40 minutes. 

Kansai Airport to Nagase Station : 3 different train, 54.2 km, 1 hour and 25 minute


The first thing that I know about Osaka is about Detective Heiji from Detective Conan manga.  Fyi: I still follow the series and I have almost complete set of the comic. I love it and my younger brother also love it. We are the big fan.
Kansai Airport ke Nagase station.

Dari dalam train.

Rumah pertama yang akan aku stay untuk kembara 16 hari ni, Rumah seorang Master student yang tengah study dekat Kinki University. So untuk dapat direction ke rumah da, alhamdulillah dia siap bagi hand drawing punya map. So untuk sampai Nagase station, aku just masukkan maklumat dalam hyperdia.com, untuk train bawah Jr semua pass cover. Yang last train untuk ke Nagase tu je kami perlu bayar, 230 yen. Alhamdulillah. Selamat sampai.
Hati aku masa tu, cukup berbunga-bunga. walaupun pipi kebas kene tiup angin. mana taknya, suhu 5 degree je kak oii. semalam kat malaysia 30 degree. bayang la banyak mana beza dia. 

Ni la jalan yang kami duduk sesat tu.


kalau aku ni budak-badak, aku rasa aku dah melompat dah kat airport tu. tapi kene cover macho depan kawan-kawan hehehe.

excited oo tengok uni orang lawo.

Sampai Nagase, mula la misi mencari umah Faezah. kawasan dia tak ada la besar sangat, cumanya, berada di tempat asing yang unfamiliar. ikut peta tu, kene jalan 10 minit baru ambik kanan. tapi mungkin sebab beg yang berat, perut yang lapar( last kami makan kat klia mlm semalam, aku melantak sandwich, time sampai Nagase tu, pukul 1 lebih dah) tambah pulak beg yang berat, aku tukang heret beg isi makanan 21 kg, bagpack aku dah 10kg, 

Autumn dah nak abis, winter dah datang

maka cepat aje la kami ni nak ambik simpang, then mula la episode sesat, tawaf tempat sama sampai 3 kali, berhenti tanya orang pun, masalah utama adalah bahasa, aku tak faham kau, kau tak faham aku. last2 kami patah balik ke 7e untuk dapatkan internet free. ( untuk makluman semua, kami berempat tak subscribe internet sebab bajet kami ciput je) then contact la Faezah balik, dia cakap nak datang jemput. ( dah la nak tumpang rumah orang, nak kene berjemput pulak, malu oii)



Sebelah sana tu, social science punya department.

Alhamdulillah selamat la sampai rumah dia, kami settlekan diri, solat dan masak sebab dah lapar tahap kebuluran, masak ape? of course la Meggi. hehehe. 


Then kami di bawa tour uni faezah, jumpe la student ganu sorang. tapi aku lupa nama dia. hehehe. time tu la, hati ni meronta-ronta nak further study jugak. Rindu nak belajar oi. Tengok budak-budak ni, muda-muda dah nak abis master.

Tak dapat study oversea pun, dapat jalan dan melawat pun jadi la.

mostly engineering students la yang further Japan sebab technology diorang kot. Malam tu pulak, Faezah bawak kami pergi rumah students lain, lepak2 borak2 pasal masalah Malaysia. as usual la kan, corruption, harga kereta dan cost hidup.. then mintak tips nak pergi mana kat Osaka ni. 


Rumah budak-budak tu, umah apartment, keluar je rumah gigil kami kene tiup angin. huhuhu. 

 Berkenalan dengan mak cik takoyaki yang terlebih ramah. malam ke empat ada cerita kelakar dengan mak cik ni.

Nasib baik ada tuan rumah nak tolong order. 


Mujahadah la kami nak mandi dan ambik wuduk even nak buat urusan dalam toilet pun, pikir 2-3 kali. beku oii. hehehe. that was our first day. 


till next update.

Jejak Tanah Samurai Part 2

Soalan pertama yang semua orang tanya bila balik dari trip aritu,
Kenapa pilih Jepun?
Kenapa tak pergi Korea macam orang lain.


sampai airport Kansai pukul 8 lebih, keluar cari Jr Office around pukul 10

Actually untuk aku personally it's my childhood dream.
Semua orang ada cerita mereka sendiri, dan aku mula kenal dan cinta buku dengan bacaan ringan manga aka comic dari Jepun, kemudian masuk zaman drama Jepun, gila2 la meng download kat torrent.  Sebut la tajuk drama apa, mostly tau la. Kemudian masuk pulak zaman Jpop. Arashi, News, Ayumi Hamasaki, semua hafal kat mulut. Masuk pulak dunia memasak dan makanan, recipe ape tak cuba, Bento bagai. Dan bila dah dewasa sikit, (dewasa ke?) Hehehe, mula berjinak dengan bahan bacaan ilmiah. Dan Jepun sentiasa menjadi contoh sebagai bangsa yang maju dan penuh dengan adap sopan dan juara dalam bab kebersihan. Dan even speaker-speaker terkenal sering menyanjung Jepun dalam bicara mereka. Sampai Pengarah Negeri Aku pun suka sangat jadikan Jepun as contoh.



tempat rasmikan jr pass yang pertama. 

Setelah sesat, penat, urus diri. Destinasi pertama adalah Kinki University, dekat je dgn umah yang kami stay.



Hati mana yang tak curious?
Betul ke?
Hebat sangat ke mereka?
Sampai dipandang tinggi oleh orang Islam itu sendiri. Sedangkan kita tau, sepatutnya sebaik-baik akhlak letaknya pada seorang Muslim. Kerana akhlaknya dipandu oleh Quran dan sunnah.
Perasaan mahu itu sudah lama ada, cuma mungkin usaha sebelum ini belum cukup, dan masih belum rezeki aku. Dan perginya aku ke sana, benar-benar rezeki dari Allah yang mempermudahkan segala urusan.


first Sunset di Tanah itu.

Mula-mula beli ticket, satu hapa pun tak prepare, just tau yang aku ada ticket nak g Jepun. Celah mana nak jalan, celah mana nak tido, semua tu letak tepi.
Bulan 3 beli ticket flght.
Bulan 4 contact kawan tanya apa patut buat
Bulan 5 tak buat apa-apa.
Bulan 6 Research sikit-sikit dan start susun route.
Bulan 7 cari tempat nak stay.
Bulan 8 tak buat apa2, just berangan
Bulan 9 start membooking rumah,
Bulan 10 beli jr pass
Bulan 11 sibuk marking, SPM dah start, p/s: sebelum sekolah tutup mintak izin pengetua skip meeting.
Bulan 12, packing, beli stok makanan, susun final route.
last minute after abis jaga Spm kene attend course kat Melaka, 7 hari. Course habis 2 hari sebelum tarikh fly.


so my December was pretty pack,


From that trip I learn a lot of things, I grow up a bit, There are a lesson I will forever remember. There are things that I will share publicly, and there are things that I want to keep to myself.
precious 16 days in my life.


pahit manis yang akan kekal dalam hati dan ingatan.
mudah ke nak research?


Alhamdulillah, Japan dah jadi salah satu destinasi percutian yang sangat terkenal, So with just one click banyak maklumat dapat.
Bahasa, itu agak masalah. None of us able to speak Japanese. I only know the basic word. hehehe


Kerjasama, Alhamdulillah, Survive. Body language sangat membantu.
Basically, lepas balik, Yes ada benda yang betul-betul ikut apa yang dah tau sebelum ni, ada jugak yang sedikit tersimpang dari expectation.

ape dia?
till next post InsyaAllah
