Curry House + Rescuing Cepot :D

Hey readers! Another daily post :D

Yesterday I tried a new restaurant called "Curry House" (well, not exactly new, but new to us :p) located in jln. HR Muhammad, on the 2nd level of PAPAYA supermarket. My bestie i'ie told me about this place and she said it was recommended so we went there. Never realized there was such a cute place hidden in a supermarket hehe. It was a nice little place with a strong Japanese feel, even the waitresses wore such cute costume :D They serve various curry-based meals, but I'ie said her fave was Oxtail curry and Chicken Karage curry. We could choose the spiciness level of the curry. BF went "very hot" and I went "mild" hehe as usual :D And the resuuult.. well, we gave it 7 out of 10. Quite nice but not that nice that we wanna come back soon :D But it's recommended if you want a new atmosphere. We actually thought that the curry tasted exactly like Sate Padang :D

Another updaaate... Cepot has grown so big and nimble, he's always busy playing and running around, and suddenly this morning we heard a suspicious noise from the roof,"GLODAKKK!!" and tarraaa... there he was! Peeking at us and unable to get off the roof --" Mommy Milan and my mom was so worried that they kept yelling at us to pick him up, so Daddy came to the rescue... Climbing a stair, with all of us watched anxiously... And only after he lured him with snack did Cepot come and Dad could finally get him :D Cuteness overload!

And again... Informing you all that Mommy Milan is currently pregnant and soon Cepot is gonna have siblings! But we cannot afford too many cats.. So if you are a cat lover and looking for a new kitten (Persia-Anggora) Just let me know ;)

TOEFL Preps and More Kittens!

Hey Readers!

I'm doing some quick preps for TOEFL like test called ELPT tomorrow as a requirement for admitting to the PPDS program. Wish me luck! I'm hoping for a good result at least >550 but I don't know if that's realistic because I haven't been practicing my English other than some regular reading and blogging :p So wish me luck!

And the sakinah family (Gareng-Dad, Milan-Mom, Cepot-son) is expecting more babies in the famz! Last week my sist took Milan to the vet to have her checked and suddenly the vet told her that milan was preggo! OMG.. I don't know if we could afford more kittens.. but they surely will be cute! :( so if any of you is a cat lover and interested in adopting a new kitten, please let me know ;)

Dessert, DIY No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

As I've already mentioned... me and my sist are dessert mania... we can stand not eating rice and main dishes but can't resist desserts! Unfortunately some of our faves, the delicious ones are so expensive, so we realized it would be fantastic if we could make them ourselves :D So we started browsing and found this super-easy recipe of no bake cheesecake, and decided to try it :)
And tarraaa... it turned out beautiful but don't really taste that much "cheesy" like the ones we usually had... But it's delicious, however :D If you want the recipe just contact me :)

Cinammon Apple Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream

Hola readers! Another baking post :D Made this delicious apple crumble together with my sister... We were both on holiday and wanted to try a new dessert recipe, God knows how we adore desserts! We picked apple crumble because it was easy with little risk of failure, not so expensive on ingredients, and most importantly, super duper delicioso! so here is the recipe :) *thanks to my aunt who suggested making our own apple crumble*

Apple filling:

1 kg of apples (4-5 large apples), peeled and sliced thinly and evenly
2 tablespoons of brown sugar (if you can't find brown sugar, you can mix white sugar and palm sugar with the same ratio)
1/4 cup butter
Put the mixture into a large saucepan and simmer on low-med heat for 5-10 mins, with lid covered, until apple is tender, but not too soft

Apple crumble:
-100 g whole meal flour
-100 g plain flour
-100 g brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
-1/2 cup butter
Put all the mixture together and make crumble with your hand (my fave part!! :D)

Put the apple filling into an oven proof casserole dish/pyrex and spread the crumble evenly on top, don't press the crumble too much or it will harden too much. Put in a preheated oven (about 180 celcius) for about 30 minutes, just until the crumble is slightly browned, and tarraaa... your homemade cinnamon apple crumble! Serve with vanilla ice cream :)

Happy trying!

Hello New Life :)

Finally, done internship :) After one "tough" year in Situbondo, I have finally moved back to Surabaya. Thank you so much Situbondo people, it's been an unforgettable experience. Especially for my dearest team-mates, I will miss you all so much! We are family and family don't say goodbyes, they say I'll miss you till we meet again! :)

Now done for the mellow part, time to move on to the next big step in my life. After spending much time contemplating and discussing with people close to me, I finally decided to continue my education to take a specialist degree. And since the test will be held in the end of March-April, so I guess I'm gonna be a little busy :p The administration only already wasted so much time to take care of, so many documents needed. For this I special thank Danang, my-kinda-stick-together-forever friend who had helped so much, I hope we both succeed!

so that's the quick update, readers :D See you in next posts!
