I  love to meet you again someday..
All I can do is to go for it.. 
Work hard.. Study hard.. and finally to pray so that Allah permits me to go again..
I miss you New Zealand.. 
Having to go there is the most wonderful thing! 
Not an inch of regret...

Someday maybe..
we will meet again..
maybe in 2016.. or maybe well.. just maybe..


Assalamualaikum my sugar plump readers


I'm so excited for this coming Chinese New Year! ahaks..
As I just came back from one week holiday in Malacca, i feel less stress with my class and life..

yup.. 2014 gave me a great impact on me and my family that I just hate people..
including the one we called "adik beradik" or "saudara" or simply relatives..
they are so willingly to kill us silently.. 
so we just going to back off rather than making things worse..

As I dont have many friends, I have no one to turn to..
Apart from my family, I need someone else to tell my stories to..
not just friend.. but someone who can understand this situation..
because I know even my bestfriend out there could not and will not understand..
I dont blame her.. she is human too like us...

so because of that, I found someone I can trust (so far)..
We planned to go and have fun this coming CNY as both of us are on holiday..hiks! *big grin*
alaa... not somewhere far, just in Peneng Island.. and one of the activity is to go Karaoke! 
hahaha.. me loike it!
InsyaAllah together with this friend, her two cousins and brother.. yeay...
she said she wanted to try Neway QBmall, a bit expensive but I really love Neway.. 
Their sound system, services and staffs are really good!

Cant wait..!

hihi.. tu je nak habaq..

till we meet again.. tata..!

Assalamualaikum my sugar plump readers!!

15th-20th baru ni Dalin berholiday with family.. 
Travel from Sintok-Peneng (pick up aunty)- Shahyalem (spend one night) - Negeri Sembilan- MELAKA

The purpose going to Nogori is because Daddy nak tengok kampung sebelah mak dia.. 
yakni kampung arwah nenek Dalin.. more than 20 years tak pernah  ballik Nogori.. and that was my first time ever.. The main reason why we never go back to Nogori is because my arwah nenek pun dah migrate keluar dari nogori more than 60 years ago! after arwah nenek settle down with arwah atok (when she was 14 years old!!) they stayed in Serdang.. then Kulim.. then to Kg Pandan.. to Kg Baru.. next in Petaling Jaya, tapi paling lama di Damansara Height, around 40 years I think.. even my arwah atuk  meninggal di DH.. after dalin celik mata 3 bulan, atuk pun meninggal.. When he held me in his arm, he said, "ni la pengganti atuk.. tak lama lagi dah atuk nak pi.." *nanes jap.. woo~* and during arwah nenek's last breath, she moved to Peneng..

My great aunt and her husband (Nenek's younger sister) which I called Tok Ngah welcomed us with open arms! She even cooked delicious meal for lunch! masakan Nogori kauu.. sedap gilaaa..! aish.. terliuq pulak teringat.. ngeeee..
Tak tahan tengok masak lomak podeh cili api dengan sambal tempoyak pucuk ubi kayu
Hujung bertudung kelabu tu la Tok Ngah, yang disebelah Tok Ngah berbaju kelabu tu pula suami dia

Homaaii.. terliuq balikkk!! Wooo.. Tok Ngah.. I want moreeeee...! After jumpa Tok Ngah, we went deeper to Kg Durian Tipus, Jolobu.. oh lupa, Tok Ngah's house is in Simpang Durian, around 500m different from Simpang Durian to Kg Durian Tipus.. Haa.. di sini lah I finally met my great-grandmother.. All this while tak pernah tahu arwah nenek ada mak tiri (tak tahu or tak pernah perasan masa Daddy bercerita).. according to Daddy, his grandfather re-married another one after the first wife died.. masa tu umur second wife tu dah 40 tahun, arwah nenek 50 tahun, and Daddy masa tu dalam 16-17 years old, jadi memang tak rapat sangat, after all, family daddy pun dah menetap di KL masa tu..

Masa jumpa Tok Yang (short of Tok Moyang), I was really excited!!! and still excited.. because I've lost both of my grandparents, then suddenly I have my Tok Yang.. she's cute.. jenis pipi labuh.. kikiki..
Tok Yang

Very the Nogori kan? Kesenian rumah tradisional terletak pada atapnya..

After jumpa Tok Yang baru kitorang ke Melaka, saja Daddy booked villa di A'Famosa sebab Dalin and kakak yang request.. ada shimming pool.. haha.. sangat la budak-budak.. we love pool, water and we love swimming! 

Sampai-sampai je kat villa tu ayah terus pergi swim!! takci... Even though I was too excited to jump in the pool, but I cant.. penyakit lama datang tak diundang masa tu... hukhuk.. kena tidur je.. ambil ubat pun tak  lut dah... sebab tangguh-tangguh makan ubat masa sakit tu mula datang.. padan muka malam tu nangis-nangis dah.. The next day pagi-pagi tu baru masuk pool.. haha..then that evening and night, just before we had our BBQ meals.. and the other next day too! morning and evening..wahahaah.. baru puass! We spend 3 nights di Afamosa resort..

The third day di Melaka we went to Bandaraya Melaka, it has been ages since the last time I went to Melaka.. so kitorang pergi la cruising di Sungai Melaka, pergi Kafe Batu Keras dan jalan-jalan di Jonker Walk beli sebenier murah gila babas.. oh! and terjumpa Mard Adam shooting untuk video music dia..

I love Melaka so so so mucchhh! ya know why? usually I will tie up my long hair sebab panas.. even kat rumah sendiri.. but in Melaka? just lepas gitu je.. it shows that I can survive with my long hair gitu je.. *yey*

After that we had our lunch.. datang Melaka tak sah cari Asam Pedas kan.. fuh!! Mabeles..! We went to Asam Pedas Claypot, Kota Laksamana Malaka 

Dalin diet, so makan ni je.. nampak sikit sebab seketul, tapi seketul segedabak tu!!! 
Yang tak berdiet order set.. dalam set ada sepinggan nasi, sayur dan asam pedas yang disukai.. ada banyak jenis, asam pedas ikan pari, asam pedas ikan tenggiri, asam pedas telur ikan, yang ni je Dalin ingat.. Dalin order asam pedas ikan pari.. licin makan.. aummm..aummm..

malam tu pula ke Medan Makan Ikan Bakar Umbai, tak ambil gambar pun.. huhu..sebab tak tahu gerai mana yang sedap, kitorang just tembak je pilih.. gladly dalam menembak tu memang sedap!! two thumbs up!

sumber: google
Gerai yang kitorang pergi tu gerai number 5, nama gerai tu Gerai Kita.. ketam dia fresh dan bapak besaq.. semua sedap.. kalau tak silap parents order sambal tumis ketam, sambal tumis udang, udang goreng butter, sotong goreng tepung, ikan kerapu masak 3 rasa dan ikan bakar.. ikan bakar ni dibakar kosong tau.. no rencah nor any perapan, tp sedap kemain.. rasa manis ikan.. alhamdulillah kebetulan boleh pilih gerai yang sedap.. disebabkan kitorang masa tu berlapan..maka tukang masak tu belah ikan into 2.. jadi sebelah utk hujung kanan, dan sebelah lagi hujung kiri.. haa.. boleh bayang tak? setiap hidangan di bahagi dua.. padahal tak request pun.. biasanya makan di Kuala Perlis pakai "passing" je.. kenyang perut suka hati balik terus tidur.. sempat lah makanan terhadam sebab from Umbai ni ke Afamosa dalam sejam jugakk.. huhu..

The fourth day tu we went back to Peneng, tak singgah Shahyalem dah.. rehat kejap, after maghrib pula shoot ke Sintok.. fuhhh.. tapi rasa betul-betul berholiday lah!

Panjang nau post kali ni.. hihi.. just to share some of my happy time in my blog so that I can look back someday and smile to myself.. such a great memory with family.. syukur...

tata.. and I'll be back!

Introducing the new member!

Assalamualaikum my sugar plump readers!

I'm making a new post at 4.40am! Because I was super duper busy during the day and my internet connect is awesomely SLOW!

I just woke up to study some few chapters on my Calculus subject *rajin kan*
while I sip a cup of nescafe without sugar..

During the day, I'vr made a homemade Mayonnaise and it taste incredibly delicious!!
The taste is just right for my taste-bud, as you can alter the taste by yourself..
and you know it is halal, clean, and of course for Atkins Diet follower, it is low in carbs!! 
*Throw confetti*

 This is going to be in my list of "must have homemade food in the house" list!!
Love it to the max.. 

Now let us see the recipe...

~2 eggs
~ pinch of salt
~ black pepper powder
~ 1 tbsp of Apple cider vinegar
~ 2 cups of oil
1) In a food processor or blender, blend all the ingredient except for oil
2) put some oil and blend until smooth and thick, then put again some oil and blend it again, repeat this step until you have finish all the oil.. (minyak kena letak sikit-sikit dan pelahan dulu, kemudian blend, minyak sikit, blend, minyak sikit blend, sampai 2 cawan minyak tu habis)
3) put it in a jar and keep it cool in the refrigerator..
You can get 2 jars of Lady's Choice Mayo..

As someone that is currently doing Atkins Diet again I really need this kinda stuff..
If you bought mayonnaise from your nearest store, you must buy the ones with low carbs..
in my case, whether it taste awful or the price is expensive!
Well.. in this life, the more nutritious and organic the food is, the more expensive it can be..

The first time I bought Mayonnaise Kewpie I can except the taste as it reminded me of Takoyaki, one of my favorite food.. but to eat it almost everyday, I cannot bear it anymore..
because I love to eat it with grilled chicken or fish.. as it feels like completing my dishes

After I have done my Homemade Mayonnaise, I immediately bring out chicken keel to be defrosted and marinate it with herbs and spices for an hour and walaa..! It turn out great..!

Grilled Chicken Ala Satay
Can you see the mayonnaise..? geesh.. I'm drooling in the middle of the night!!

Lets check out the recipe too!

You need boneless chicken (not too thick and not too thin)
Marinate in
1) 1tsp of tumeric powder (serbuk kunyit)
1tsp of chili powder (serbuk cili)
3) 1tsp of curry powder (serbuk kari ayam)
4) salt to add the taste
1tsp of cumin powder (serbuk jintan putih)
Marinate for 1 hour and coat with Psyllium husk *optional
And grill using magic pan!

Estimation of total carbs is around plus minus 5g carbs

This is actually the malas version of Chicken Satay Atkins Style..
because it will be much more deliciousif you add some ground onion, ginger etc, 
but I was too lazy to count the carbs and weigh the onions, ginger etc plus I was soooo excited to test my Mayonnaise...

The real satay needs honey or sugar.. hence, satay is not advisable in Atkins Diet

Hope you can enjoy your food as I enjoyed mine!!

Bon Appetit! 

The moment you realize that you can have everything you want in life. However, it takes timing, the right heart, the right actions, the right passion and a willingness to risk it all. If it is not yours, it is because you really didn’t want it, need it or God prevented it.
(random quote I found in the internet)

People always ask me, "Dalin.. dah besar.. takde orang lagi ke?" or "rajin masak.. boleh kahwin dah.. suruh bf masuk minang" and any other "bila nak kawin?" questions.. and it annoys me so much, when I'm smiling but deep inside I'm going insane!! Seriously people that are sooooo concern about my life, thank you for adding me in "who I want to bother" list of yours.. I dont have a bf, and I dont need one.. they are just gonna waste my precious time, and would only distract me in doing those "lovey dovey" things that most couples do.. Okey, straight to the point, I USED to set my mind I want a bf a.s.a.p, so that I have someone to talk to.. to love me back.. to.. to.. yadda..yadda..yadda.. but not anymore..that is childish talking..   I can be a knight of my own.. I can love myself more than anybody else..

Please dont get me wrong.. No, I'm not against marriage nor against being in love.. It is just for now.. I dont like it..  I have my own aim.. its because I love myself to the max.. and yes, until now Nobody can win my heart.. jual mahal? Do I care..? its my future, not yours.. That is the reason why I love to cook, not just for myself, but indeed for my family or my future family..and please remember, I am not against marriage.. but if I'm going to settle down, let it be after I finish my studies plus a steady job.. 

But for now, to be in a relationship? Of course my answer is No.. relationship is about give and take, and dont forget about sharing.. be responsible towards your partner.. trust and believe.. giving space.. are tied in a relationship and you must give commitment which is a hard task.. *phew* *lap peluh*

so if you see me on the street, please dont ask me, "bila nak kahwin weyyhhh"
