Tick Tock Tick Tock

I managed to complete 8 patchwork books before taking my break for 2 days to Bagan Lalang…Alhamdulillah… and I am counting every second and all feel so surreal:) Phewwwwwww 5 days before I fly and I just couldn't believe it…I just need to focus to complete what I suppose to do, and say NO to what I shouldn't do. I had cough with cracking voice, and hope will recover soon. I need to be fit, not going to fall sick, can't afford to get sick especially now.

Patch Work

I love doing patchwork, it was like composing a different tune and unite it to became a very harmonious orchestra. I will throw myself into work and isolate myself and forget about my problem. Making something unexpected is what thrill me each time. There are no such rules & regulation and I can just go deep and deeper, and totally obsess in channeling my energy making each of it I do not allow myself to create something like what others been doing. I rather became a trendsetter rather than a follower. Each thing I create or what I did, I always putting my whole heart into it.  It was such an amazing journey looking at small little things I discover each time, and this small thing is what big to me. How irritate myself looking at other people that always find an easy way of doing something, I am glad that I remain strong and firmly believe of my own ability. Each obstacle doesn't affect me that much just by looking forward to always have some

Wonderful Nature:)

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”  ―   Anne Frank ,  The Diary of a Young Girl Location: Tasik Ampang Hilir

Plain English Scone:)

I normally cook without following the exact measurement, just by feel of the texture using my finger or follow my instinct and change it slightly here and there. I do not cook everyday so whenever I cook Arissa & Syamil will overly compliment even that is not the best meal in the world.  They will eat and eat without complain:) I love scone, this was my favourite breakfast during my student time. I went to Cameron Highland last year, the taste always good when you have it hot in cold weather, or during winter. This recipe is from http://www.deliaonline.com Ingredients  40g spreadable butter  225g self-raising flour  1½ level tablespoons golden caster sugar  pinch of salt  110ml milk, plus a ilttle more (if needed)  a little extra flour  Pre-heat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7 Method Begin by rubbing the butter into the sieved flour quickly, using your fingertips,then stir in the sugar followed by a pinch of salt.  Now, using a knife, mix in the milk
