As somebody who likes to bake,cook and eat..scratch that,I even loveee watching cooking shows--Top Chef,Masterchef,Iron Chef,Hell's Kitchen..I have them all!I even have an array of cookbooks as well and food related books..haha Occasionally I buy Flavors magazine..sometimes the content is boring though---(see I tend to sidetrack at times -_-),it's a given that I take pictures of food..A LOT!

Below are the pictures of food that I have eaten with my family,boyfriend and friends.Also foods that I have baked/cooked.:) I hope you're not reading this on an empty stomach ;)


Musang King!
I have never tried Musang King durian before though I've heard about it and didn't particularly understood the fuss until I tasted it.My parents bought it 2-3 weeks back.It was so good.The best durian I've tasted.Now I get why it's expensive.Very worth the money.Now,no other durian can compare to it..just like how other guys pale in comparison to my Razin.:P
I love mangosteens
If durian is the King of Fruits then mangosteen is his Queen.I can eat buckets and buckets of mangosteens without getting any stomach pain whatsoever.I just love it!!!
Mama's favorite chocolates
Bought mama her favorite Hawaiian Host chocolates because she's an awesome mum and I got paid a few weeks back hahaha.She's a supreme chocolate lover.This is one of her fave next to Cote D'Or.
So good!
I was intrigued by the packaging of Sun Chips which I saw at my fave supermarket(next to Tesco) Jaya Grocer Warehouse and it looked good!The packaging didn't lie!Even my boyfriend who has super high taste in food,loves it..it was good and healthy as well.:D
Favorite juice at the moment
I saw The Berry Company being shown on Instyle magazine a few months back and was happy that they're finally available here at Jaya Grocer Warehouse.It is so yummy.They're natural fruit juices.I saw them at Cold Storage as well but they were selling these small juice pack for rm3.95 if I wasn't mistaken while Jaya Grocer sold it for only rm2.65!Price comparison is very important :)

Love this app though they spelled roti canai wrongly haha
I'm trying to eat better but sometimes it's hard because I'm one of those people that loves to eat good food.So a few weeks back,I found out about this Meal Snap app whereby you take a picture of the food you're eating and it'll calculate the calories for you.

The app is pretty accurate!It even manage to identify nasi berlauk(refer pic above).It's shocking to see the calories in some foods so it does makes me more aware of what I put into my mouth.

Lunch at Mohd Chan Abdullah
Had lunch with my colleague Winnie at Mohd Chan Abdullah a few days back..Their wantan noodles is very good.And their dimsum too.Though the service is a bit slow and I ate there another time during the weekend with my friend Adela,and the same thing happened again--our drinks came after our food.-_-
 Beehoon sup daging--spicy and gooodddd
My colleagues and I love having lunch at this Malay restaurant in Bandar Sunway,because it has an array of dishes but one day I didn't feel like eating rice so I choose the beef beehoon soup.So good!!Added a dash more of cili padi and it was spicily good.
Half&half for both pizzas
Was craving Domino's for dinner and I was hanging out with the boyfriend so he suggested we ordered half and half on both pizzas--you know the rm28 for 2 regular pizza's coupon?I love that Domino's gives those chili flakes because it's spicy.The pizza on the right is a mix of Classic Chicken and Tuna Temptation(our fave pizza!),the left is a mix of Extravaganza and Pepperoni.

Fave kind of lunch
Give me a plate of rice with fresh veges and a crispy fish and I'm sold.Above is one of my favorite lunch which I rarely say no to.haha
Crispy popiah

I love popiah.If the traditional one,I love Popia S.Ali,a fave of me and my mum for years.Above is Sisters Crispy Popiah which is the modern version and my fave as well.So good!Unfortunately it's not sold in Shah Alam so I only get to eat it once in awhile if I happen to drop by to Sunway Pyramid which is near my office.
XXL crispy chicken and sweet potato plum fries
I've heard about Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks from my friends about a year ago but never had the chance to taste the food.But last Tuesday I managed to do so when I was out with Aimi,since it was a public holiday for those who was working in Selangor.I love it!

The XXL crispy chicken stayed true to its name because the portion was huge.Couldn't finish it and tapau it for the boyfriend since I'll be visiting him after.I love the sweet potato plum fries..very crispy and addictive
Sushi King and durian ice cream
Had lunch with colleagues at Sushi King one day and they were surprised that the green tea was free.Because they are used eating at sushi places whereby you have to pay for the green tea.haha.Had durian ice cream which my colleague Winnie recommended.It was good!Smooth and thick.yummmmm

Baked/Cooked

If you see at the top left of this blog,is the link for my baking blog.And orders has been trickling in.


Made thick chocolate ganache--cream+dark chocolate=decadence
Whenever I bake cakes,there'll be some batter leftover so I'll make mini cupcakes for the family.Made a new batch of ganache because I ran out of it frosting a cake order.My mum loves a cake that is frosted.Who doesn't?Okay,maybe there are people who doesn't like that.haha

Chocolate strawberries
Made chocolate strawberries to decorate a chocolate cake that was ordered by my friend.
Chocolate chip cookies!
Baked chocolate chip cookies for my colleagues because they wanted to taste them.Now my boss is ordering them from me.hehe And the directors as well.:D My boyfriend and his 2 brothers commented on how good they tasted.Or as the boyfriend said "This is crazy good(sedap gilaaaa--haha)".Must use the same ingredients again to ensure quality control.

Because I've noticed that sometimes even if you follow a recipe to a T,if you use different brand of ingredients,the result will be different.So,always use the best ingredients you can find.
A lot of the things I've baked recently
Clockwise from right:A super chocolaty chocolate cake order,a big Hokkaido cake which I put butter cream frosting on top which my boyfriend's brother in law ordered,lasagnas ordered by my friend Ain&Ayumi and lastly a red velvet cake with strawberries all over it ordered also by my friend Ain.:)

Hokkaido cupcakes and red velvet cake in the making.
I baked Hokkaido cupcakes for a girl who ordered it from me.Hokkaido cupcakes is very light and fluffy..the fluffiest cake I bake because meringue is folded into the batter.

Breakfast!
Wanted guacamole for breakfast so I made some and ate it with tortillas.The bag that I bought(from previous weekend post) was huge so there's still some leftovers.Had it with soy milk.
Victoria sandwich
I made homemade strawberry jam and used it for a victoria sandwich recipe.I love the cake as it was fluffy and the tart strawberry jam goes perfect well with the buttery cake.Thus,I'm selling it on my baking blog.

Phew..now that's a lot of food pics!:)
