Hello holiday

Posted by cutiefasha at 12:21 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Exam untuk fall semester third year dah dua tiga hari habis. Tak rasa nak berehat. Boring duduk rumah. Memang dah biasa dengan family pun kalau cuti pergi berjalan. Sekarang ni duduk kat rumah je rasa bosan. Rasa sunyi jugak in a way sebab kawan2 takde yang tumpang tido rumah kali ni. Hidup sama2 housemates kan, jadik kalau nak jemput kawan dtg kena considerate macam-macam. Tinggal sorang sorang lainlah. Nak masak-masak pun, kadang2 tu taste tak sama. Dah buat, takde orang makan pulak. Nak kasi orang lain, tak tahu lah ada yang sudi ke tak. Bukan macam dulu.

Entahlah, I don't feel happy lately. Supposedly habis exam rasa nak melompat, tapi tak pulak kali ni. Pulak tuh, final paper haritu tak sempat siap. Padahal dah study and tau apa nak tulis, cuma kurang bijak bahagi masa. Down sangat time tu actually. I have nobody to talk to that time. Ayah tengah sakit, so malas nak gitau mama cite panjang-panjang. Sabar je lah dulu sorang-sorang. 

Anyways, sekarang busy prepare masak2 untuk Canada Games. Lepas tu pulak kena plan betul2 utk holiday kali ni. Yang tu pening sebenarnya nak pikir. Nak happy-happy ayah kat hospital lagi. Harap sangat ayah cepat sembuh. Tak suka kita gelak-gelak sini, ingat mama adik kena jaga ayah kat rumah. Mampu doa je dari jauh :(

Ya Allah, 
moga semuanya berjalan lancar.

Irish Colcannon (Mashed potatoes with cabbage) Recipe

Posted by cutiefasha at 1:10 AM 0 comments Links to this post

Yesterday, we get to experience another special date (12/12/12). I make something special to celebrate my "pre" post-exam cooking. As my next exam will be in a week or so, I decided to take a day off from studying, and cooked something nice for my housemates :)

I made a Grilled Salmon with Irish Colcannon on side. It is just a fancy way to name a mashed potatoes with chopped cabbage, onions, and chives. But as I googling the recipe, it turns out it is an Irish-style cooking, and voila! Here are the picture:

The easy-peasy recipe:

1) Boiled potatoes (I used Yukon gold) in lightly salted water, drain when done
2) Chopped onions, some cabbages, and boiled in hot water for until half cook/tender. It is important not to overcook because cabbage tends to get chewy when well-done
3) Drain cabbage mixture and mix well with potatoes.
4) Mashed potatoes, cabbage mixture.
5) Add some garlic cream cheese (optional) and butter
6) Add some milk if you desire the more creamy mixture (I omit this)
7) Seasons with salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste.
8) Voila! Serves with any proteins you like. I did mine with grilled salmon :)

Enjoy :)

One more paper and to holiday we go!

Salam and hey to whoever reading this :)

Just finished two of my final exam paper, another one left to go. Having one week gap between my papers, make me procrastinate even more. Bad Farah, bad me. Ok, I know but hey, we deserve a break too. Anyhow, 11/12/12 has been a great day for me. Although I came for the test not fully ready (I think) but somehow I am quite happy and confidence writing the exam. I don't know. Just have a great feeling though. And when I'm finished, terserempak dgn my professor on the way out she said, ''Well done, ey!" and just that moment makes me feel good. Glad that I finally stick with taking 6 courses this whole semester, and another 6 courses for the next one.

Knowing me, in my first year I only did 4 credit, and in my second year I did 4.5 credit for entire 2 semesters. To able in taking 6 freaking subjects in 4 months is one achievement for me. Sure, my schedule seems empty, and not a lot of night classes, but my workload for each subject was like...pheww! Unbelievable, the amount of reading per week that I 'supposed' to do. Glad glad glad that another sem is done, one left, and then can't wait for Malaysia.

But that's a kinda long term plan. For now, I have approximately two weeks left till my big winter vacation with the housemates. I feel excited at first, but at the same time nervous too. Too many negative opinions were thrown out at us about the trips. But, to think about it, when we told people we're going to Europe last time, people were freaking out too and given us so many tips and info. Hope everything went well for this trip too, Insya Allah :)
