As i was sealing plastic jars full of Raya cookies for delivery a few nights ago, my 3rd rascal asked " Ada spare cookies tak?" "" reply, " You think my cookies like tyres ker ada spare?". Merajuk and replied " Baby nak makan sikit pun tak bole"....ha ha ha....i just laughed and told him that people do not usually used the word 'spare' for extra cookies.

Then, on Tuesday night after breaking fast somewhere near Sunway Pyramid with a group of people, when later we headed home using Kesas highway going to Sg Besi. At one sharp corner under a short tunnel, I heard from the back of the car, "Ayah jangan laju jalan kat sekolah tau" and I was stunned.
" Where got sekolah here?" but at the same time a roared of laughter heard. "Baby nak cakap selekoh la mama" chipped the oldest boy.....and the baby was silenced like a few seconds until he saw the ever outstanding big M beside the highway...though just being laughed at, he was grinning from ear to ear...kid

And one morning before the fasting month, after eating his french toast for breakfast he asked me very sweetly," Ma, nak roti dalam patewe, bole?", I was like, "Whatt??" He went to the drawer and took out one small tupperware for the toast and i just burst laughing so early in the morning ha ha ha.......

The pictures below are my version of the famous Pineapple Tarts. Recipe was given to me by my older sister and so far this is my personal favorite because its really tasty and much easier to do as compare to the more commonly seen in the market.

250g multi purpose flour - sifted
200g selfrising flour - sifted
Orange zest from one fruit
1 1/2 tblspoon orange juice
1 egg
1 egg yolk
250g butter-softened
1 beaten egg for glazing\poppy seeds for decoration
Pineapple jam - can be homemade or store bought( i like Nona brand)


Beat egg and egg yolk lightly and put aside. Beat butter ( i just used wooden spoon), add in flour and mix until incorporated and add in the beaten eggs, orange zest and the juice. Mix until the mixture become a soft dough. Pinch the dough to get about a thumb size ball and put in the pineapple jam. Brush the balls with beaten egg and sprinkle poppy seeds on top. Bake in paper cup at 175C preheated oven for about 15 - 20 minutes.

kalau dah sampai sakit belakang tekan kuih, tak yah gunalah....i rasa bcoz mold tu plastic which tends to grip your dough kot...anyway my version nih senang bangat....


i used Nona brand easily get from Giant or any supermarket, but funny ek how jam nenas bole jadi liat...over masam ker manis ker tu maybe la....macam2....
