How to Make Sweet Potato and Yam Balls and Bubur Cha Cha

June 7th, 2021 · Nobody Surrendered

Few months back, mom harvested yam from the backyard and we cooked some and still had some left. So I decided to make yam balls with it. Here’s the video on how I make it. It’s my first time making it. I used only glutinous rice flour so the texture wasn’t as chewy and it’s more soft like tang yuan. It’s best to use tapioca flour I think as every recipe I found uses tapioca flour.

After making too much of it. I froze them. Since I have some leftover coconut milk and almost-forgotten pandan leaves, I decided to make bubur cha cha with the sweet potato and yam balls. It’s my first time making it too.

Hehehe… Easy right?

Selamat Hari Gawai 2021

June 1st, 2021 · Nobody Surrendered

Another year of stay-at-home Gawai. Hope there is no Gawai cluster. Enough to have Raya cluster. It is enough to cause havoc to the nation. So… Please… Do your part! Last Raya, there are people received open house invitation. This Gawai, the same thing too, even offered to provide transport to go Gawai with them. Com’on ppl! Ngaiti… Which part the SOP said you can allow outside people to visit you?! Are you going to destroy your whole kampung?! You see la… With these kind of people, it does not matter who are at helm, it will not make any difference, all will end as being accused as kerajaan gagal… 🤦‍♀️ Yet those gagal one are the rakyat themselves not practicing self-control.

Foolproof Cup Measurement Kek Sarang Semut / Kek Gula Hangus

May 21st, 2021 · 1 Surrendered

Kek Sarang Semut or Kek Gula Hangus is my favourite traditional cake. Even though it’s made up of a lot of sugar but it doesn’t taste as sweet as other cakes. However, do bear in mind that, it is still sugar even though it doesn’t taste as sweet. I thought it is hard to make and didn’t dare to attempt it. After watching a few videos and studying through the ingredients and methods, it’s not hard at all, it doesn’t even need mixer(I killed my mixer few months back) while the ingredients required are easily available and common.

Here’s the video of my first attempt. I did my second attempt last weekend and I can now safely said that it is indeed foolproof! Just need to be a bit careful when melting the sugar and adding hot water to the melted sugar. I will upload the second attempt video next week *finger crossed*

Here’s the ingredients:
CARAMEL (Do this first so that it has time to cool):
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Hot Water
1/3 Cup (about 76gm) Butter

BATTER:
4 Gred B(medium) Eggs
1/2 Cup Condensed Milk
1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
1 Cup Sifted Multi-purpose Flour
2 Tsp Bicarbonate Soda

Instructions:
Check out the video

I’ve also uploaded a quick version in BM on my Instagram. Will upload the English version there soon too.

Have fun trying and do share with me if you managed to make it too 😉

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2021

May 14th, 2021 · Nobody Surrendered

Wishing my Muslim friends a safe Syawal this year. It’s was a last-minute decision that our government had to make that there will be no visiting and crossing districts and states to celebrate. What to do? It’s all for our own safety. The hospital beds and ICUs are running out. Sarawak still refuses to follow the MCO order from the federal side. It’s not getting any better here and soon we’ll be seeing resources running low. Had just found out recently that a number of acquaintances are now in the hospital fighting for their lives all because of some decisions that some idiots decided to make and these people are paying for that egoistic decision now. Sigh… Whatever… Say so much also no use. Just hope for the best, stay safe and healthy, everyone.

By the way, since we can’t go visiting, can’t go anywhere, I dug out my baju kurung that I’ve never really worn. So… These photos are exclusively shown here on my social media accounts, you will never see me in such clothes in public. I just cannot wear them out haha…

There you go… Take care! Enjoy your weekend.
