Tea Party..

I simply love Tea Party.., the themes, the decorations, concepts, the preparation and anything about Tea Party. 

Since I was tight up with my schedule last month..,  I'm unable to arrange one for my little daughter...

BUT

last week..I managed to fulfill her wish and I am glad and happy for her and me. I am happy that I'm able to explore and do something that I like during the preparation for the Tea Party. Actually ..nothing much to do ! I only do with all the thing that I have at home and decorate and decorate!

At last..I love the results..my daughter love her tea party too.., thumbs up to me !..

At the end of the day..before she went to sleep.., she kissed and hugged me ..and said.."thank you Umi for the tea party..i am super happy today.., i love u "..

Again..the art of communication is simply amazing...it can turn you up and even turn you down..

I am thankful to have her in my life.., her warm loving remarks will always make my day..!

Let enjoy some of my 1st Tea Party photos for my daughter..

Birthday

What is Birthday ..well its when a person celebrates his/her anniversary day of birth,

And its the day of happiness for most children..they simply love cakes, candles, presents and the wishes. 

Like any other kids, last month was my "little princess" birthday. She wanted to share her wonderful day with all her friends at school. I prepared some cakes, party packs and ordered some pizzas for her friends and teachers. 

I know its not the custom to celebrate all this.., but to see the smile in her face  ...its a happiness to me! 

Yes..like any other parents..nothing its more important than HAPPINESS..


My Dearest Daughter..i really love you, YOU will always be my little girl                     
..and may you will always be happy and be protected from any harm in life..

Today ..my Tuesday at Home

Now, its Autumn..its my favourite season of all. The weather and the colors of the trees .. ..just simply AMAZING. 

Nothing special ..just another day while I'm here. Many things happened in this world, and life is just unpredictable ..so as we are still here ...do the best of everyday in life. 

This week will be the school holiday for my son and not for my daughter. How I wish they could have the same holiday so that I could plan something for them. 

Since they are at home..I prepared simple lunch for them. I made them Spiced Fried Chicken  to go together with sambal belacan and white rice. Simple and satisfying for them. 

If you wish to try ..here goes the recipe..

Spiced Fried Chicken (original recipe from Chef Hanieliza- tq Chef, simply love your simple yet delicious recipe)

Ingredients (A)

5 pieces of chicken legs
1 tspn of white pepper
1 tspn or tbspn of chili powder
1 tspn of turmeric
salt 

Ingredients (B) - Blend

5-6 clove of garlic or 1 tbsp of  garlic
1 inch of ginger or 1 tbsp of the ginger
3/4 stalks of lemon grass
(Note- You can also add an onion if you like)

Methods

Marinate A and B for atleast 1/2 hour
Heat the oil and deep fry the chicken until golden brown. 
You can also add the curry leaves when frying ..its optional anyway..

Happy trying..and believe me..

No matter how the recipe is...,  ..we do have certain instinct for our cooking whether to add/ reduce or even to omit certain ingredients ...follow your instinct and taste ..the recipe is just a guide and the rest is all your show..:))

Kuih Koci Chef Norzailina Nordin (for 6 to 8 pax)
Source - Masakan Popular Malaysia published by Pustaka Zaman
Pg 74 

For the Dough

500 gm of Glutinous Rice Flour
1/4 tspn of salt..(reduce to your liking)
450 ml coconut milk
Cooking Oil
20-25 pieces of banana leaves (18 x 20 cm, heat it at the stove until the color change (for a while). This will make the banana leaves pliable. 

Coconut Fillings

4 Tbspn of white sugar 
5 Tbspn of brown sugar
100 ml water
1 Pandan Leave 
280 gm white shredded coconut

How to make the Filling

1) Boil the white and brown sugar with the water until it dissolved. Sieve them.
2) Add the shredded white coconut in a pan and add no1. Add the Pandan leave. 
3) Mix well and stir on a medium heat of fire until the mixture thicken. Set aside to cool.
4) Optional - you can add a pitch of salt if you want you.


How to make the Dough

1) Mix the glutinous rice flour, salt, and coconut milk until it become a soft smooth dough. 
    (Add the coconut milk bit by bit). 
2) Separate the dough to about 20-25 small balls (it is up to you for the size of the dough, no 
    special size for this..I prefer the medium size..not to big!)
3) Take one of the balls and flatten it to put in the filling, about 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoon for each 
     balls.
4) Take the banana leave 
5) Dip in the oil (as per the above pic)
6) Put the ball in the banana leave and wrap it neatly wither a cone shape or the normal 
     folding.
7) Repeat the same steps for others.
8) Steam for about 15 to 20 minutes in a medium boiling water.
9) Remove from steamer and allow it to cool before serving. 

Note : the steamer should be in medium heat.
