Comparison between mother's version and "my" version: mother's version "my" version very delicious delicious thicker a bit watery better fragrance less fragrance hard to get from outside same taste can get anywhere long hours needed (about 4 hours) fast and easy (less than 30mins) more patient done fast, suit for everyone can keep up to a month can keep up to a week I am too lazy to try mother's version although it is really really delicious. Hence came out my version. For those who like kaya, and lack of time or patient standing long hour keep stirring your kaya jam, my version is actually a very good try. It is better to make home fresh kaya jam since it is fast and easy to make. Try make a small bottle each time and finish it fast when it is still fresh, and make for new badge after finish.

Yam Cake 芋头糕 (Or Kuih) Recipe

I miss my kitchen, I miss my oven, I miss my flour, miss my butter, my mixing bowl, and...and...and... every single little thing in my little kicthen...... I have no time to bake, no time to cook, no time for food hunting for the past few months. The only thing I can do is to surf and read on people's blog. Sometimes, blogging life is quite lonely if you are walking alone. Interaction with readers or other bloggers are the best way to keep us motivated.

 

Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberries Recipe

When I looked back my post on Hawflakes Layer Cake, I just realised that it has been more than one year since I last baked my Indonesia layer cake. I bought a can of butter for baking layer cake and kept until it was expired. I quickly grab it to bake for my next Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberry. This time, I follow exactly the recipe in my blog too, with slight modification, I change the filling to cranberries. For my hawflakes and prune layer cake, I managed to bake a total of 8 layers cake but for this one, I get only 7 layers. It was still very delicious and as good as last two cakes! I spent less than 3 hours for this cake. You can substitude cranberries with raisins too if you like as the taste of cranberries in this cake taste very similar to raisins. Recipe here: (more picture can refer here) Ingredients: 340g tinned butter180g icing sugar (sifted)1tbsp sweet condensed milk 12 egg yolk1/2tsp vanilla essense1tbsp brandy (optional) 100g plain flour (sifted together with mixed spice)1.5tsp mixed spice 4 egg white Some cranberry and red colouring Method: 1.

Repeat step (3) ~ (4) until second last layer, switch oven to TOP & BOTTOM fire, 180C.8. Continue to bake last layer until brown.9. Remove cake from oven and cool it at wire rack. *Note1: Arrange cranberries at 3rd & 6th layer. Press lightly with toothpick after pour 3rd and 6th layer mixture. *Note2: Take out 2 cups of mixture and add a few drops of red colouring, mix well.

Cosway Bread Maker Machine

This is a new bread maker that I bought some times ago. After the first unit of bread maker that I bought from Cosway, this is the 2nd unit that I bought from there. It is mom's birthday present. The new bread maker comes with more functions compare to the first one, and it can make bigger loaf. The additional functions that attract me are "bake cake", "make jam", "bake only". I am not sure how delicious the cake is if you bake with bread maker. Well, I will try it! The "bake only" function is good where you can let the machine prepare the dough at first, and then remove the dough from machine and roll it to small ball (add some filling too), then put back to the machine for "bake only", so you do not need to always make a "Gardenia" or "High 5" bread, and it does not required oven.

SushiKitchen_2Being creative and innovative are the key to success in this world. If you can design or think of something new and special, and do something different compare with others, you can be very outstanding.

Last week, We visited a vegan sushi restaurant in Sg Ara.

 We make a reservation before dinner to avoid dissapointment as that day was Lunar 9th of September. We arrived there at 6.30pm, wait for few 10 secs in front of main door after pressed the door bell. After the door is open, we entered the restaurant with excitement, and start captured photo here and there. While we arrived at their counter, we stand at there for another few minutes, waiting for people to serve us.

After order foods, we started to look at restaurant deco. The restaurant environment is very comfortable and their deco attracted our attention. They used old furnitures, toys, clocks, coca-cola bottles and others for decoration.

For the food, we ordered:
G-ken Floss Fried Rice. For the first bite, I wondered why the chicken floss does not taste like chicken floss, oppsss, from there I just remembered I am in vegan restaurant. The "G-ken floss" is very chrunchy and prefect match with the fried rice, we would give it a thumb up!

Spicy Noodle
The noodle is "yee mee", and soup base is special and tasted like coconut curry soup. A little spicy.

Green Tea with RM2 can be refilled.

Life fruit is cherry tomato, with few cherry tomato, they charge for RM2, quite pricey huh?!

For sushi, we want to order Golden Age as this seem to be their famous sushi, but it was really a big dissapoinment when the waitress told us it was finished. How can it be? Well, for the first time visit, we don't mind to try other sushi, so we ordered Happiness Couple, the set came with 8 sushi, all tasted good but the wasabi not really fresh and no strong "spicy" taste.

SushiKitchen_2

We would strongly recommend you to give it a try, we like the food as well as the environment. Good place for gathering and chit-chating too.

However, the food is served very slow as they have only one waitress to do all the things including open door (their door is lock and after customers press door bell, the waitress will press remote control to open the door), taking food order, serving food, taking payment, attend to customers. Hope they will improve on the speed.

Closed on Tuesday.

Extra note to add on: written on 3 Nov 2011
I have re-visit Sushi Kitchen yesterday, during lunch time. We plan to go on Tuesday, but they were closed, hence we call them to make reservation for yesterday lunch. This time visit brought me a BIG DISSAPOINTMENT, almost near to TOTAL DISSAPOINTMENT to Sushi Kitchen.

As mentioned, we had called to make reservation for 4 persons, but when we arrived there, below is our conversation:
We: We called to make reservation yesterday, Miss XXX.
She went to check her list and replied,
Waitress: Sorry, don't have your name written in the reservation list.
Well, since there are still plenty of seats available,
We: It's ok, just let us sit anywhere, but we want table with chair, not tatami type.
Waitress: Sorry, all tables has been reserved.
What a big FxxK? Luckily we girls not wearing skirt today, or else...

While ordering food..........
(A,B,C and D refer to 4 of us)
A: I want spicy noodle.
Waitress: Sorry, we don't have spicy noodle today. Our spicy sauce is home made and already finished by popular demand since 2 weeks ago.
A: Then meaning all the menu with "chili" label are not available?
Waitress: Yes.
A: Then give me miso soup udon.
Waitress: OK.
B: I want enoki mushroom fried rice.
Waitress: OK, white rice or brown rice?
B: White rice.
C&D: Two seaweed fried rice.
Waitress: White rice or brown rice?
C&D: White rice.
A: Let's order some sushi...golden age sushi.
Waitress: Sorry, it's finished.
B: What? Now is only lunch time, finished?
Waitress: Yes, we use only special mango to make it, and we can't get the mango now.
A: Then let's choose for other set.
C: What is fruit plate?
Waitress: It is fruit of the day.
C: What is today's fruit?
Waitress: Sorry, no fruit today because yesterday is our off day.
A&B&C&D: ...................speechless)........................

After some while, the waitress walked back and told us:
Waitress: Sorry, bad news, no white rice already, do you want to change to brown rice?
B: OK, we change it to brown rice with white rice price, is that ok?
Waitress: Cannot leh...
B: Then??? We order so many things, but all are not available, then now white rice also don't have, you request us to change to brown rice, and charge us extra RM1, how can it be?
Waitress: Or do you want to change to mee or other thing else?
D: Ok la, change la...
B: I don't want mee...
Waitress: (Speak in english now, we were speak in manderin all the while) If you don't want to change, I also can't help, we really don't have white rice.
B: Ok la, brown rice la.
Waitress: OK.

**********************************************************
That's about our conversation, I really can't accept a restaurant works in this way, they can't even provide white rice, and it was not late night at that time, it was about 1pm only, how can the food finish so early? If your business is so good, you should prepare more and please remove your "golden age sushi" from your menu, or remark with some note like "seasoning food" or what...I don't think customers want to hear "sorry, golden age sushi is finished" everytime they visit, or "our home made chili is finished, no white rice, no fruit, no this, no that", almost half the menu items are not available.

With this kind of service and price, we were charge for service tax somemore, we feel that it is not worth at all lorrrrrr.

However, the fried rice taste not bad la...But the sushi are all wrap with carrot, cucumber and some vege only, I rather eat real sushi. Yell
