my latest toy....

say hello to mister pasta latest toy in the kitchen... got all hyped up about ravioli... really wanted to taste the thing...but you see ...most ravioli that is sold in cans or n frozen not halal...and kat jepun ni..lagi susah nak cari..

so i do what i always do...i make it myself... but i'll never know what it's really supposed to taste like lah kan..when u take the original recipe and take out the prosciutto...and alcohol...but you make do with what you can use...right...

so anyway..since i was dying to make that thing...first came the search for a round cutter...cookie cutter pun nak cr a big sized circle cutter was not an easy kat fukui ..then cr kat toyo..ada yang mahal je..last2 beli jugak...sekali..last weekend kat 100円 jusco to baru keluar stok....three sizes for 105円...urghhh..geram geram....hahaha...

the thing about making home made pasta is that...serious mendokusai nak roll out the i thought..why not invest in a pasta roller...saje je la usha2 kat tnet...and there it was...on sale...from 5800 to 1890...ape lagi ...beli beli...hahaha 2000 yen hubby ..said beli je la...haha...and i was really proud of it too...sampai lah the night when i called up my mum for a chat... and she was can get that for rm 30-40 in msia...waa waa waaaa......terus down..she had a laugh though..and i begged her not to tell dear hubby coz nanti kena gelak je.....but he double kena tak pe...i'm happy with my new toy and that's what counts...

my mum gave me some ideas though i have thought of using it to roll out gyouza (potstickers) dough... she said why not use it to roll out you karipap dough...hehe....but it's the taste that counts dearest hubby can't grumble bout me buying mister pasta roller...heck he might want to help me roll it out...maybe even try to figure the mechanics of the thing.....

so then comes the search for the perfect fresh pasta recipe...i had one in mind...the one my jamie oliver recipe it's a bit too ambitious for me...and some of the stuff tak tau nak cr kat mane kat fukui ni..
yesterday tnet buat pasal ...tak leh load page here i am ...searching...
found one that's seems to have potential with an in-experienced pasta maker...and here it is basic pasta

hopefully it turns out nice....still thinking up ideas for the ravioli fillings though...the possibilities are endless...

somebody stole our wedding presents...boohooohoooo

it happened a few weeks ago...called home and found out..

ada pencuri masuk ...through the front kitchen door yg mengadap main road tu....dulu masa umah baru siap someone tried to masuk through the window next to fortunately masa tu kitorg tak pindah sana agi...

it happened on a sunday..of all broad daylight...tak ke pelik...weekend yang biasanya org kat rumah tu lah dia pilih nak pecah rumah...thank God everyone was chills me even to think abut what would have happened kalau ada sape2 kat rumah...since majority penghuni rumah tu females... the funny thing is my dearest hubby, was thinking in a different way...he was thinking about how to detain the pencuri if he was home at the!...sheeeesh...

our neighbour was baffled since he was at home and didn't hear a thing..... according to the detective  four other houses were robbed that day in that area..and the funny thing is ...they said they were in the area...scouting...and still the robbery occured...huhuhu...benda dah nak jadi kan...

anyway....they rummaged through our closets..throwing our clothes in a  heap on the floor...and my mum said she didn't have the strentgh to clean my room just yet but that after looking through our things, she  found that some of our wedding presents were gone....since the stuff was still in their packaging.. i guess the thieves figured they could sell them....bedsheets, towels, blah blah blah..... i'm just glad they didn't take the songkets. tapi sedih jugak lah... especially the towels that my seniors gave us that were monogrammed with our names and little notes of advice was stolen...urghhh geram tak reti baca ke org tu...ada nama saya kat atas towel tu...pun nak ambik ke...

my mum...well some jewllery she left at home including my bracelet that i asked her to repair...and some of mums brooches...(which my mum thinks shows that one of the theives was a women...coz her brooches yang org tu tak berkenan ada kat dlm bathroom depan cermin...suggesting that the person was trying them out)...and what made my mum really mad ...was her prized of which my daddy just gave her for her birthday...

maa naaa....all in all i was pretty shocked ...since i have never actually been robbed.... and mad...can't forget that part ...i was mad...but Mr.A said...rather than being mad, wouldn't it be better if you prayed that they never do it again...

and that's when i new i married the right man
