Ok, kepada anda yg rakus lagi kelaparan dan mengidam benda manis untuk dilahap, meh sini aku kasi resipi yg aku search dan marathon 3 kali buat masa raya haritu..  Marathon bhai!  Sampai nak muntah aku rumah bau gula..  Demm...

Cara aku buat senang.  Tak jumpa hand mixer, tak payah pening pakai blender..  Lantak kau kek nak jadi rupa apa janji bila masuk mulut aku boleh berlagak dan riak akan kesedapannya..  Jadi aku share di tutorial kek gula hangus, tapi versi translation omputih ye..  Nak melayu punya tak de hal, aku kasi link utk explaination yg lagi padu (amboi! padu hokeyh!)

Jadi utk resipe versi aku, jgn blah lagi..baca sampai habis...  hehe 


As I told you guys before, I'm going to give you guys a tutorial on making my style of Caramalized burn sugar cake recipe..  Firstly, why is the name so freaking weird like that?  Well, because it's a direct traslation from it's original name which is in my native language..  And the name basically shows your the general steps of making this cake..

Caramalized the sugar--> make it burn a bit (overcooked sugar) --> add in cake bater

*images from google*
 So I did this recipe for our Eid celebration..  I didn't really had any plans to do but when I do, I had 3 days marathon of cake making activity..  

So basically you need:

1) Blender or handmixer ( I used blender because I can't find my hand mixer)
2) Steamer pan
3) Measuring spoons
4) Flour sieve (optional, but I didn't used it because I'm too lazy to add another tool to wash) 

*Standard size cake measurement:

1) 1 cup of sugar
(for better flavor use 1/2 cups of brown sugar & 1/2 cup of regular granulated sugar)

2) 1 cup of hot water

3) 2 table spoons of butter
(salted or unsalted is optional)

4) 4 eggs
(for the egg you need to eyeball it a bit, because some eggs are large and some are smaller, so what i did was I put 2 eggs first, blend and see whether i get a cake bater consistence, if it's to thick just add another egg and so on.. Make sure you get cake bater consistency..)

5) 1 cup of sweetened condense milk
(this is optional too, for better taste just use it.. if you don't have this kind of milk just substitute it with 1 cup brown sugar OR granulated sugar) 

6) 1 cup of flour

7) 2 tea sp bicarbonate of soda

8) 1 tea sp vanilla essence


1) Caramelizing the sugar...

a) Take a frying pan or any pans, turn the heat on medium low and pour the 1 cup of sugar.. Fry them (dry pan only, no oil needed) and wait until most of the sugar is melted and turns brown a bit..
b) Add 1 cup of water slowly and at the same time keep on whisking the becoming caramel sugar solution. The sugar might harder like A LOT but don't panic, just continue to whisk slowly and later on the harden sugar will start to dissolve in the water.
c) Add 2 table spoons of butter and mix until it became a proper, no sugar grain left sugar solution.
d) Continue to whisk around slowly until your get a dark brownish yellow color solution..once there, quickly turn off the heat because you don't want the solution to cook further. Leave it on the stove of a while..

2) The cake bater...

a) In a blender (or a mixer), put the eggs and blend them until you get light yellow-cream colour
b) Add 1 cup of sweetened condense milk. Blend it again
c) Add the flour and bicarbonate of soda and turn on the blender again.. Make sure they mix well..
d) Pour in the vanilla essence and again, freaking blend like crazy.

3) The magic begins...

a) Add the caramalized sugar (from step 1) into the cake bater..
b) Again, blend the careful not to spill out the bater peeps
c) Take a baking dish, lay with baking paper or cooking spray and pour in all of the bater.
d) Now the mega decision;
i) if you wanted to have the ant nest effects, just leave the bater to ''shape'' for 3-4 hours.
ii) if you hate waiting and don't give a damn how it will turn out to be, just pop into the steamer or oven and wait for it to cook.

4) Cooking options:

For less time consumption:
~ Bake for 60 minuter with 60'C

For moisture (I picked this option)
~ Steam for 1 hour and 45 minutes

Once cooked, leave it to cool like usual and...


Good Luck :D

Queen of Procrastination: Eid Day Celebration

Last week I was on midterm break for our Eid Celebration.  Lots of photos were captured but I was so busy from the first day of Eid until today..  Even on the first day, I woke up quite early and get ready wearing just a simple shirt and leggings to help out my mom.  Later that day, then I got the opportunity to change into my official Eid dress that I worn for 2 days alternate..  Worst, no make up T.T.  I only get the chance to do my hair as suddenly mom told me that my cousins and relatives are coming, so more maid work for me..yay!

The Eid-eve activity..  Tansferring fancy cookies into fancy breakable jars that I hated the most to used during Eid, because some kids just intelligently hold the lid and not the body of the jar.. 

 Pegang penutup --> penutup x kuat --> jatuh kat lantai --> pecah berderai --> more bibik work 

the moral of the story is, think before you eat. --''

Ok the leggings  I wore was from Pro'jett (insta) only at RM28..  Loving it so much!

So the first day was tiring, and thank god the second day no one came to visit, so I went out with mom to get some stuff and also oriental massage..  My legs hurts so bad, I felt like screaming and not to mention that I'm very ticklish..  A single nerve touch would make an earthquake of myself T_T

And the third day was amazing, since my friend were all at home so I invited them to come and hangout..  What I love the most, that they adored my caramel moist cake (kek gula hangus/sarang semut) which I will share the recipe with you guys later on.

So, after eating at my house, all of us convoyed (with 3 cars) to their houses.  I drove, Aat drove and Fith drove and I'm the most amature racer that day..  Ultra Loser!

 Yup, totally have to camwhore with this person, who now studies in UK and will meet her again for the next 365 days

New passenger, since her sister hijacked her car.. 

My eid-dress with  make-up all worn out =.=''..  I know I looked very thin, because of the food poisoning effect ok..  I'm not anorexic or bulimic..  And I have no talent to get fat because shockingly I have high metabolism rate..

The Sims 3: Lagging & Freezing Issue

Hey guys, currently I get some rest from playing the sims because the game is having some lagging and freezing issues and the only way that I observed myself to avoid this issue is by making your pc rest for a while (because I had this problem before and it kinda worked)..


Ain't nobody got time for that, so I searched some solutions online and I hope it will work on my computer this time :)

Solution options:

1) Installing some software to boost your gaming performance (link)

2) using CTRL+SHIFT+C ''ResetSim''

3) uninstall and deleting any unnecessary or huge bytes of your CCs, sometimes when your house is using furnitures from the CC it will make the game freezes because it takes a longer time for the game to load the CC from time to time (especially when you're doing extreme movements towards your sims)

4) reducing your graphic resolution performance 

5) change folders or change towns (link)

6) Check or upgrade your media performance (link)

7) Combining Package files (link)

8) use a mod to limit the amount of sims (link)

9) go to My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 drag and drop the mods folder onto your desktop (link)

10) Delete cache files, but only these ones!! 


You will find them in your documents /electronic arts /the sims 3 (link)

11) if you're using a laptop, upgrade your RAM 

12) remove all mods 

13) if you want to use the same household, go to edit town, save a copy of your household. Go to the main menu and start a new game with the same household. 

14) try to move out of your current house into a simpler house design.  if the game still lag and freezes, repeat solution 13 and move into any ready made houses that is already in the game.  Building new houses will slow your gaming thus causing the lag.

15) Don't go online while Simming.  Going online while playing will make your game to download the featured items photos from the sims website automatically.  Thus this will clutter up your ''featured items folder'', so you guys have to delete all featured items photos 

how to find? just go to ''Documents/Electrinic arts/The Sims 3/featured items''

Well, I hope these list of solutions will help you guys out there!

Happy simming :D


Problem: I still want to use my household because I'm using it for the 10 gen challenge, but in the current game file, the game continuously freezes and lags especially when I use too many CC housing decors and furnitures.  I deleted the CCs but the problem is still there...*table flip stunt*

So, I managed to solve the lagging problem in my game, not sure how yours will work but basically mine does and I'm happily continuing my 10 gen challenge..  So what I did was:

1) Install the Advance System Care and clean up all shitty junk in my laptop..  I swear I can make a freaking junk empire just from my machine :(

2) Install Razer Game Booster and lauch your game through this platform (you'll know what I mean once you've intalled it)

3) Start the game, with my current-lagging-game:
    a) click tools circle button ''(...)''
    b) click ''edit town''
    c) copy and save my household
    d) exit the game and restart it again (through RGBooster platform)
    e) at the main menu, click ''new game''
    f) chose the household that Isaved 
    g) chose a house (recommended to use the ready made in game houses)

4) And your happiness shall begin...

20 years and 7 days old

Well last thursday (1st Aug) was my 20th birthday and I got no time to update anything in this blog because I was busy with tests and quizzes or busy sleeping...  And also the most of all was i wished to celebrate my birthday alone in my room while playing the sims3 without any interruption from anyone and i had the best birthday celebration ever!

Of course thank you so much to every one who wished my birthday with every fucking weird way that do exist in this world..  I love most you retards!!!

In my case most of my friends were asking me what i did and who i hung out with on my birthday?  As i said I was alone playing sims on my bed, they started to feel bad and sad for my situation..  Just stop this shit ok! 

It's not sad to celebrate your birthday alone, 

it's not sad to eat lunch alone,
it's not sad being forever alone because I'm really used to being alone and independent and do shit all by myself and only myself (besides mom) knows how to entertain myself..  

I'd get birthday presents for myself too!

Achievement unlocked: Ultra-unicorn forever alone

So stop being sad! 

1) life drama

2) fucking annoying dude who thinks he can change people
3) hot weather
4) talking and listening to bullcrap


So, I was planning to get Nintendo 3DS, let's just hope I'm able to get one :D



Finally, I got some extra cash to spend on myself because this is a very special 20th birthday present forever alone style for me (from me T_T)..  Actually, I set my mind to get nintendo ds from the first time I heard that they were producing the first ds model..  Yup, the old one where you can slot in your Gameboy Advance/SP cartridges..  Years later I finally got the latest model and I'm probably poor for the next two months before entering my final semester -.-''

So, I woke up early yesterday and drove alone to the nearest game center (in the mall), mom thought I was getting some toiletteries and catfood because I mentioned about those stuff before I went out but amazingly not a single word about the nintendo..  

Well,she expected some catfood (which I forgot to get) but then, when she saw me charging the console, I swear she lost her words for me..*evil grin*

Before this I told her I wanted a nintendo (any DS model of course) but she was like,

''Kakkk!!! You're 20 arr but you still want to play games like the boys ke?, got get the Pandora bracelet instead laaaaa..''

And I was like,

''Well, I might lose the bracelet because I don't like it but gaming is different, it's a training method to make your brain to react faster maaaa -.-''

 Annnd still, she didn't suspect that I was going to get it..


WINNING!! *points at self*

So I put up a status on twitter (sorry for the blurred lines *wink* #thicke) and my sister (unbiological) replied this; 
 How awesome was that??!!

Soooo again,


Also I told my twin friend about the nintendo and he wanted to get one too in blue, but unfortunately mine is the only stock left, sooooo....

and i don't think he's 100% interested on getting one because when I contacted him, he's kinda asking me to get one myself..  Yeah like I'm getting them by using his cash..  BITCH PLEASE!

Well enough with historical here's my new ''love child''...


*drum roll*


The game I chose was animals crossing new leaf..  I didn't really know about this game very well but I saw on youtube that Kalel (Anthony Smosh's fiance) played this game on one of her vlogs.  So, I researched about it and it's not bad..  Also the gamer bro at the game center recommended me to play this since I'm a Simstress...

Thanks for reading :D
