wonders of teh internet

every one has been bugging me to join FaceBook.

i hesitated. its another Friendster kinda thing anyway… moreover, i seldom log on to Friendster, so i was thinking twice bout signing up for FaceBook. ok ok, so i was bored yesterday. And i made myself an account to see what FaceBook is all about. nothing much, quite simple interface and a lil boring compared to Friendster.

AND…….yea, today i had 2 msgs in my inbox… one was from my long lost friend from Maui and the other guy was Badrul Hisham! he was my standard 1 friend!!!!! he look so different already!
He use to be a small fry back then, now he has grown into a young and handsome man. good for him! wow, he still remembers me. ok, right now i have no regrets at all upon signing up on Facebook. it brought friendship and old memories back to me.

and…i know, the internet does more wonder than this.. =)

thank God for the internet!

i attended my first yoga class with Scha yesterday. i’ve learn the Virabhadrasana II, Adho Mukha Svanasana, Parsvakonasana and Savasana. well, i have to say that yoga is just not as easy as i think it was. yoga is all about breathing and holding some awkward poses. i enjoyed myself and i think yoga is really suitable for ppl like me, who have a very very bad temper(i don’t deny it). and i have low blood pressure and the yoga instructor told me that it can help too. we’ll see bout that. hopefully it helps.

mini cupcakes

…… the happy part: mini cupcakes …..

c u p c A K E S

what a day! i spent the whole day baking. gosh… a little tired now.

Let me see, right now I’m sitting down comfortable in front of my adorable computer, waiting for my masque to dry, yes i just did a facial. while waiting, i am relaxing, munching on some cranberries, burnt some aroma therapy candle and blogging. how nice.

for the next whole month you are gonna hear about me bragging about my life. what to do. it has never been so good… *wink*

after looking at the cupcake blog fanshu gave me, my mouth has been watering ever since. couldn’t ‘tahan’ la. i cant place an order because the minimum order is 49 pcs. donno why so weird one. i definitely can’t finish all of them…

so i decided to bake, WTH? yesh, i made cupcakes and it did turn out right. well, urm.. have to admit la. it didn’t turn out right at first. it was all burn n as hard as a rock. i rather eat the tar on the road!
the batch after that was all so perfect. thanks to my loyal kitchie helper, jas0n dear. he kinda like advice me what to do and not to do. we were both new at this but in the end, everything did turn out well. well, at least wasn’t as disastrous as i thought it will be.

anyway, i had a blast making these mini cupcakes…and took loads of picture.

pretty isn’t it. well, i am not so mean 1. i am gonna share my recipe here with u guys. will post it at the bottom of this post. remember to check it out.

….. the not so happy side of my story …..

i bake quite a lot of cupcakes. the main reason is to actually stare at those pretty little thing, but the other reason was also to share them with my bestfriends. we are supposed to meet up, have a gathering this saturday night. the plan was we are suppose to meet up for kajang satay. i thought of writing their names on it. surprise them a lil.

but… when i tried to call them just now, i couldn’t get most of them. then i got thru to vimal’s phone. so i was asking him to confirm saturday’s date. he was kinda in a rush, bz and he said he can’t make it. i ask him to confirm he was like a lil angry. im so sad now. wanna call naresh and michele, their line were engaged. called stef, but no answer. i am gonna try calling wendy, tina n ling after i wash off my masque. gosh… feel so lonely here.

most likely i am gonna eat my own cupcakes… =(
i guess its ok la… will just postpone this gathering, and will continue starring at those pretty little cupcakes. they make me happie.

here’s the recipe, as promised. i tweaked the original recipe so now i call it my own. i gave it a name and it is called the “Happy, Mini and yet nice to look at Cupcake” by mC.

ingredients for the cupcake:-

* 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
* 1 1/3 cups sugar
* 3 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup shortening
* 1 cup milk
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 2 large eggs

method:-

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pans with paper liners.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Add shortening, milk, and vanilla. Add eggs to the mixture. Beat for 1 minute on medium speed. Scrape bowl again. Beat on high speed for 1 minute 30 seconds until well mixed.

Spoon cupcake batter into paper liners until 1/2 to 2/3 full.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool 5 minutes in pans then remove and place on wire racks to cool completely.

Once cupcakes are completely cooled, frost with your favorite frosting recipe or decorate as you desire!

ingredients for the frosting:-

* 150g Butter – softened
* 250g Confectioners (icing) sugar
* 2 tsp hot water

method:-

Soften the butter with a wooden spoon, then add the icing sugar.

Add enough hot water to form a thick but spreadable mixture.

Add food colouring and spread on cooled cupcakes with mixture.

Enjoy the recipe, and don’t limit urself. u can decorate those cupcakes with choc sprinkles, coloured stars, jujubes, jellybean or even some raspberry jam.

love,
mC
