Seaweed Salad

Why Salad? 
I have been eating raw foods and other healthy stuff for this past 2 weeks
Gladly the extra 6 kg that i have put on, have been shed off by 3 kg... and it stops!! why? tell me why?

My wedding is coming, 30th of January exactly..
Being selfish to my taste buds, i consume nearly plain food every day.. apple, orange, carrot, boiled vegies (no salt if acceptable); i have given up my favourite chocolate; no sweets some more; drinking almost 3 litres of water everyday and made me visit toilet countless times...
Because i just want to be fitted prettily into my wedding gown... 

  Honestly, i am still not so sincerely to allow this 3 kg of fat hanging around my body...oh well, i have tried my best at least!! it just want to stop, what can i do? haha.. : )

This light and tasty seaweed salad will be my dinner tonight

Serve: 1
A handful of dried Seaweed 
3 dried Shitake
1 Carrot
1/2 block of Tofu
1 Tbsp Brown Rice Vinegar
1 tsp Sesame Oil
1 tsp Roasted Sesame Seeds
Pinch of Salt and Sugar*

*You can adjust the amount of Salt and Sugar as you prefer

Soak Seaweed and Shitake with hot water until soft and tender
On the other hand, prepare carrot; tofu to cut into bite sizes
Cut Shitake into bite sizes if it has soften
Arrange each ingredients in a bowl
Put in Brown Rice Vinegar; Sesame Oil; Salt and Sugar
Garnish with Sesame Seeds
Store in the fridge for 30 minutes*

*Chilled Salad is tastier

Treasure was hidden in it

I decided to whip up some dishes from mum's recipe 
I cooked Sambal Tempe Ikan Bilis
The crispy Anchovies; crunchy Peanuts and fragrantly Tempe mixed in spicy Sambal are definitely a memorable dish that brought me back to my uni life in Jakarta, hated the life but deeply fell in love with the food : )

Lao Puo Bing (Wife Biscuit)

My holiday is finally here. .all i need now is to finish my last assessment for my last ever subject for uni
Then i will be graduated (if everything pass) hehe.. 
Time flies!! Seriously!! 

I made Lao Puo Bing just now
I quite like the pastry (not success yet!!) however the filling was just not right!! it was not sticky with what i have tried the store bought one!! Why?? was that because i cooked the glutinous rice flour myself? i could not find any "Koh Fun" anywhere here : ( so i just tried to dry-fried myself.. :p

 I simply followed the whole process and did not modified myself
Please refer the recipe from Baking on Cloud 9 

This is how my Lao Puo Bing looks like

not-so-good filling

Not a Baking Master!!

I have a Saturday Class tomorrow!!
To discuss in-depth about strategic management
Just simply because i am taking a short course for this trimester
Will be end by this December!! yay!!

And hurray!! i failed a subject - Media Planning & Buying
I was such a lousy picker - this was actually my elective subject (i can choose any subject i am interested with)

Never know that, i was actually felt into a TRAP!!
The lecturer was a CRAZY Top Hard Marker 
yet didn't delivering us a good lecturer..
She thought we were as SMART as Isaac Newton : (

I am so ready to fail, that's why i didn't feel upset at all!!
I actually celebrated that day by had some sushi treat with Monica, hehehe...

I have to pay for another subject, and OF COURSE i choose other!! (not a dumb)
I took International Markteting as an Online Course - which will be ended by this coming February (will be doing this subject during my holiday in Indonesia later )

Back to topic!!
According to my plenty experiences of having a Saturday class
There will be no food around college!! food court will be closed, and everywhere will be very quiet!! 
My college is located at business/office district - that's why!!

I have made some finger food then : )
I hope my lecturer and classmates' tooth will be fine after swallowing my Dates Muffin, lol!!
I hope it will not be too hard for them!!

Dates Muffin

I am not really good at baking :p - still need to improve HEAPS!!

Anyway, this is my first attempt to make a birthday cake

P.S: Anyone did Toyota Strategic Audit Report before?

You let me know " What is Love?"

I have bought a book recently (rare!!), a Book store in town is having their massive sale
Without thinking too much, i walked in, was aiming at recipe book but this book caught my eye!!
I read some of the content, and I Fall In Love : )

This book might be sound a little bit religious (Muslim) - but it does not hypocrite at all!! 
Moreover, i learnt more "What is love?" How to love?" and "How to live happy?"
Love in this book doesn't mean a relationship with your partner (well, there's some)
but more to your family, friend, and stranger...

I am on my half way reading this book, it kinds of addictive :p
I'll steal a chance to read whenever i can!!

I read during gym, when i was doing cardio, XD
I usually only spent 30 minutes max on cardio
But last night, i did an hour w/o realising at all...
Yeah, now my legs are sore, hahaha....
Sore with happiness though!! 

How i wish i can read my text book like this!!! : )

Update: You'll learn how to love yourself as well !!
