Good morning everyone! I have started my Raya break, woohoo! But spent the night before I left for Ayer Baloi, Muar tidying up my kitchen, my house, books , clothes and packing my baking stuffs and gadgets to bring back to kampung! I was supposed to make kek lapis this week, but I busted my schedule with the 21 cakes adhoc order!
Anyway....we left at 8 yesterday morning...err we were supposed to leave at 5, but we were all so tired and all things were only sorted out just before we left, phew!
....and travelling in the new tanker (bigger) just allowed me to doze off throughout the journey! when we arrived.....my , my guess what I found? The works in progress of the new kitchen in the "Joy of Life"...the Ayer Baloi home! Fadil and his team were busy working, of course the house now is in a mess pending the completion of the works....but never mind......The corian tops were up, the sinks were usable, and most of all, the 36 inches oven is ready for use, woohoo!
....work in progress...
....the second last layer...cempedak flesh blended with condensed milk...yums!
I unpacked my baking stuffs and started making Kek Lapis Cempedak and whipped a batch of one egg white macarons to test the oven......voila, loved the new oven to bits....wish I could have the same kitchen in KL!
I was in a haste as it was almost time for iftar, I didn't snap the picture of the Kek Lapis and macarons....I'll post the recipe and pics later ya!
Iftar was at Fadil's with his mom Mak Arah cooked Assam Pedas Ikan Gelama Bintik (apparently only prominent in the waters of Pontian), Sambal Udang Kertas, Lemak Pucuk Paku with Sweet Potato and Rojak.....sedaaappppp!
Well, we have just arrived in Muar, gotta clean the Muar home and bake some cakes for Raya woooot! See you!
