abstract painting

hi and assalamualaikum to everyone!
yesterday was a boring day, i did nothing other than watching tv..
then i googled up anything that attracted me then i found this.. 
AUTOMATICALLY i remembered i found this photo a year before and i planned to make it!
so apa lagi, of course i wud do it in my own version! ;D

 i'd been drawing this stuff all evening and well, quite satisfied with d outcome! =)

i used 3 pieces of 300 gsm drawing block..


started colouring the base. (orange)

then, shaded at every sides of the base (i used red)

dah mula colour kat dalam..

i used buncho water colour (which is actually wont be that nice to be blended.. saje nak habiskan colour adik.. btw, usually i use water colour jenis ''ARTIST'' which u can find it in certain place saje.. but it has a very good quality and fine molecule or colour) ahha!! XD

but i have a friend on mine yang mmg terer in blending the colour.. doesnt matter how cheap the colour is.. as long as u ada EFFORT (dan sedikit bakat ;D) , anything can be as what u want it to be.. =D

proceed with adding MORE coloursss..

abstract colours..

ok, yang itu was actually havent totally dried yet..

done! make sure the colour is completely dry before u overlayed it with another colour ok! XD

closed up.

ok, this is my OWN VERSION of abstract painting inspired by the photo i showed to u up there!
but mine wont be as awesome as it lorr.. saya budak baru belajar! =D

i cut the polisterine (the white thing under them) followed the size or my paintings..

n put them up on my sis bedroom's wall.. =)

do comment n thanks for visiting.. =)

steamed moist chocolate cake for dad..

certain peolpe do not know when is exactly father's day..
Fathers Day in Malaysia is held on the third Sunday in June. 

Father's Day in Malaysia is not an official holiday, but it is customary to observe it on the 3rd Sunday of June. Every body busy wishing their dads, posting on their facebook's wall or give them cards but yeah those arent wrong.. but what i want to really emphasize here is, DO U APPREACIATE THEM???

Sure, not every dad is perfect but our philosophy is that if you have a good one or an almost good one, take the time to tell him how much you love him now, while you still can. 

Our dad taught us the value of a MONEY and the importance of HARD WORK. Most importantly, he always ensured that we were safe and well cared for, even when we were no longer living at home. =')

To this day, he takes the time to show us he loves us, even if it’s not in so many words.
What do you appreciate about your dad?

Btw i wanna share these few things..
on how to appreciate them.
  • Tell and show your father how much you appreciate him. Tell him on Father’s Day, but also show him somehow everyday.
  • Tell your dad you love him today and every day.
  • Do something for dad, without him asking for it.
  •  Live life to the fullest! Be a person of substance and make him proud
so that's it..
now im gonna share the recipe of steamed moist choc cake that i made for my dad couple hours ago.. =)
first of all.. we need,

ingredient A
220 gm flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 / 2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

4. Heat the steamer until boil and after the mixture is ready, pour into 8 x 8 inches mould that have been buttered or oiled or covered with parchment paper.

5. Steam for 1 hour++

orange moist cake

hi and assalamualaikum!
last 3 days, i tried to bake a whole-round orange cake and i failed. T_T
but it was my fault (sbb gelojoh), i put the icing while the cake still warm
and it melted! so of course it spoilt the cake! huhu
but never mind..
i made a new one..
cupcakes version!
(ok sebab senang)
easy to make, easy to consume!
no wonder people nowaday prefer to cupcakes rather than one big whole cake
it becomes a trend.. =D

ok, today i went to pasar malam
just to buy these oranges
(10 biji RM5 sahaja ok) =D

300gm butter
300gm sugar (u can reduce the quantity if u dislike sweet)
5 eggs (guna 4 biji putih ONLY okie)

320gm flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice (I used 2 whole orange water extraction)
2 tablespoons sunquick (optional)
1 teaspoon orange paste (I used orange flavor)
a drop of orange / yellow dies (if you like)
zest (parutan kulit oren)

1. Beat the butter & sugar until light and fluffy with the highest speed
2. Add eggs one-by-one
3. After fluffy, add flour that has been sifted with baking powder
4. Mix well & finally put all kinds of juices & bake! (oven with 180 dgree celsius for about half an hour)

after parut kulit dia, perah oren tu to get its juices! XD

beat until fluffy. fluffy means white and it wont drop if u upside down the bowl. =)

after i put all the juices, orange flavor, dies and orange emulco

put about 2/3 of the cup

my favourite cake ever.. =')

this is ganache.. how to make it?
u must have...
300 gm whipping cream/evaporated milk
500 gm cooking chocolate (chopped fine)
30 gm butter

1) Chop the chocolate to small pieces.
2) Heat cream/milk untill boil.(double boil it) then lift.
3) Put the chocolate in the cream/milk and stir until chocolate is melted.
4) Let it cool down for several hours before use.

orange cake tastes nice when combined with chocolate.. =) (sebenarnya malas nk buat topping.=P)

make them fully covered..

and tadaaa!! they look simple but seriously they taste nice! haha try it! =D
selamat mencuba.

thanks for reading. and assalamulaikum.
