Just wanna share.....

Someone text me asking how my kitchen looks like...pardon the 'bersepah' because if i took the pictures when the area was in spic and span condition, i dont think it will have a feeling of heavily used 'kitchen' he he....

Wet kitchen corner, where i do my daily cooking of all the 4 meals and ++(snack and etc)....
Baking corner, my old faithful mixer which i got from Sogo and oven where i bought from a shop across Sogo, which both are almost 10 years old...

Hand mixer is 10 years old ++ too, i got it at Sogo. (Those days, Sogo and my office was a walking distance....)

I got to bake 800 plain choc moist cupcakes for wedding favors. The wedding is tomorrow, but the customer wanted the cuppies yesterday(Friday). I delivered the cuppies last night after maghrib. I used 78 A size eggs, 4kg of Blue Key selfraising flour, 5.5kg castor sugar, 3.2kg cocoa powder, 3.25 kg buttercup and i got about 830 cupcakes. My youngest boy brought 15 pieces of teh cuppies to his Maulud celebration at his agama school.

I started baking at 9.00 pm on Thursday night in one batch (5 recipes), completed around 1.00 am in the morning. On Friday, i started around 11.00 am and completed about 5.00 pm(8 recipes). The boys assisted in the packing and my eldest boy did the taping of the casings very fast(thank you Abang). I did a few projects like this before with my old oven and mixer, it took me like 3 - 4 days to complete. And the electric bill was so high, i decided to get a bigger but gas oven. The RM was a bit from dearest hubby(thanks a million), mostly from the proceeds of earlier cakes sales, i got the mixer first and later the oven and. Now i wonder when would the MPV coming????( ha ha ha ...to my Anon readers, dont la comment saying 'tulah org melayu biz nyer ntah apa2 berangan yg lebih , I am only joking on the MPV ya....) The end product

It started here;

The eggs were washed even scrubbed he he....
The huge mixer, can bathe a toddler in this ha ha ha ....
The chocolate moist cake batter..... The ice cream scoop i used....


The aluminium foils cup lined with paper cups .....
The newly acquired oven ....

Dear Zaitgha,

Don't feel guilty about dreaming. Bukan setakat MPV, a banglo house with a pool, your own chain of cake shops, and your own brand or cup cakes maybe.

To dream is free. And it is a very important tool to help us progress and grow.

Semoga impian menjadi kenyataan - (dah kena deman AF).
