earth hour...urmmm..sebut pasal earth hour apa yang datang menerpa ke minda?
tutup lampu kata orang kedah...hahaah...switching off the lights for 1hour tak kisahlah kat mana pun..kat rumah ker, kat kedai ker, kat tempat2 awam ker...sebab nak nak bagi bumi ni sejuk skit...

Actually this kempen is very good, cuma yer lah... tak boleh di sempurnakan dengan efektik, yer lah, kalo dah padam sumer lampu, rumah gelap kang terlanggar meja kerusi, takpun nanti pencuri plak amik kesempatan. Macam mana plak dengan kedai/premis yg beroperasi pada waktu malam? like restaurants kan...depa mesti nak business on macam biasa, kalo dah tutup lampu, customer tak datang....rugi lorrrr... :P kalo airport tutup lampu...macam maner kapal terbang nak landing? heeemmmm....

Namun, boleh jugak kalo they all nak take part, maybe switch off sebahagian kedai/premis...so, do u get what i mean? bagus tapi kurang efektif...NAMUN ...WALAUBAGAIMANAPUN....sekurang2nya better than nothing :)

So, tonite, i decided to spend my time at Starbucks (jimat letrik rumah cek)...hehehe cek support earth hout taw...minum2, lepak & surfing internet at starbucks...walopun separuh kedai tutup lampu, tapi full house...then they have promotion, buy starbucks tumbler during earth hour dapat free tall drink of your choice for free :) pastu kalo guna hsbc credit card, dapat 10% off..diskon...diskon...janji poket cek pun sejuk macam bumi nih :) ada lagi, on next visit kalo purchase drink using tumbler instead using starbuck paper cup tu, cek dapat rm2 off lagik...urrrmmm...best best!

Tapi, kena juga ingat yer..bukan earth hour jer syok dilaung2 sana sini...sampah sarap, pencemaran sungai, udara sumer jangan plak lupa...konon support earth hour, tapi tisu lap hingus (yarkkkkkck!!!) buang merata! cehhhhh! Hisap rokok pandai, tapi puntung rokok main baling ikut suka kot tepi jalan...cehhhhh!!! lagik! >.<
So, fikir2lah setakat mana anda dah berusaha menyelamatkan bumi Allah yang maha kaya ini? Urrrmmmmmm *wink* :)

Another pasta recipe to share with you all :)
Simple & less hassle meal TAPI............Hoyyyyeee! ^___________^

Best to use spaghetti.
Cooking tips: Cook in boiling salted water with few drops of oil for 10mins or until it is cooked but still has a bit of bite to it.

Remove from the heat and soak in tap water to stop the cooking process. Drain.
Cooking tips: Always keep a tiny amount of cooking water to use later

Place the tomatoes in a tray with salt & pepper, knob of butter, thyme, flat-leaf parsley, rosemary & olive oil. Toss well and roasted in oven for 20minutes
Cooking tips: It's ok if u don't have fresh herbs, it always can be replaced with dried herbs

After 20minutes, take out and add prawn & onion. Continue roasting for another 15minutes
Cooking tips: At this point, be creative, add a tiny amount of oyster sauce to enhance the flavour or even bird chilies for hot flavour! :) (typical malaysian...hihihi)

Heat the olive oil, add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the roasted ingredients and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes. Season with salt & pepper. *fuhhh! siap ada smoke effect aaaa :P
Cooking tips: if too dry, add some pasta cooking water that you keep earlier :)

Add the pasta & toss together. Cook for 2minutes. Some basil would be perfect!
(mine out of stock lah)
Cooking tips: Pasta will be more delicious with some runny gravy on it :)
Done! :)

A super delicious menu!

How to prepare?

In a bowl add chicken wings with salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary, garlic, smoked paprika and a touch of asian flavour -------- chili paste, oyster sauce  and  honey. Mix well.

Marinate for at least 1hr. Stay overnite is the best!

Into the oven at 200C for 1hr or until cook.

Meanwhile, roasted various veggies at your choice as side dish. I prefer new or baby potatoes, red / yellow / green bell peppers, carrots and onion.

Done :)

Serve :)

For the first time I'm cooking the beef steak :)
It's been so many months after I've got myself my first cast iron griddle pan, and it's been sitting in my kitchen drawer for nothing :P heheeheee

The ingredients

Char-grilled asparagus & tomatoes.
Put the asparagus & tomatoes in a plate and pour 1 tablespoon of the oil over each. Scatter the pepper over each side & a little salt over the asparagus. Grill for 5-10 minutes.

Caramelized onions with butter, olive oil, salt, pepper & honey. Cook under slow heat until sweat & translucent.

Caramelized red cabbage with salt, pepper & chicken stock.


My photo
I don't remember a witch ...but there was a black adorable cat who sat down beside me and told me that "I'm a cat who has strong legs, beautiful heart and the ♥ of thrills, I like to climb things - including hills. I ♥ pink and I ♥ cat and again the black cat told me that I'm a lovely friendly Pienkcat"
