Father's Day and cakes story...

On father's day weekend, the girls attempted baking carrot cake for the first time for their dad. It turned out great and dad loved it very much. It was so creamy yet crunchy with lots of walnuts and pumpkin seeds.

 Just a week before, it was my birthday and the kids suggested that we brought creme brule cheese cake  since they had never tried it before ( tho i have tried it). So, on the way back from the wedding one weekend we stopped by a secret recipe restaurant to buy the cake. Sadly, tho it was out of stock.

Since it was late in the afternoon and we were tired after attending two weddings, we bought  this 'choc cheese berry' cake instead... never tried it before and it's not bad, very rich in chocolate, cheese and rashberry...

here goes the cake (the first cake four days before D day)

Then, on Tuesday we went to Cameron Highlands and we bought some strawberries back. the girls secretly had planned to bake another cake for my birthday.

So, this is the final product...chocolate strawberry cake for mom...

...served with homemade chocolate and Cameron orange slices...scrumptious!!!

Thanks girls...we love you guys

going highlands

Before the end of the schools break, my daughters managed to persuade their dad to spend a day at Cameron Highlands. The original plan was to go to Bukit Tinggi in Pahang but he refused to go for some reasons. He has been busy with his work and study thus he he doesn't care much about going for holiday... i don't remember the last time we went for a holiday as a family...

Weekends were out of question since there were more than half a dozen wedding invitations that we need to attend. So, anyway last Tuesday morning off we went to Cameron Highlands; just the five of us, hubby and I and the three girls who were beyond excited to go (none of the boys were going). 

 Since hubby had given a condition that he would be studying in the car all 
the way if he was to go (his exam was on the following day), so Sha was driving and I could tell that she loved every moment of it..

We arrived there at around noon and the place seemed crowded with people as it was school holiday. But we managed to find our way to a quite number of places to feast our eyes and shop except the regular spots like Kea farm, cactus points and butterfly farm coz we couldn't find the parking there...

our first stop where they grow beautiful mushrooms...we bought some fresh asparagus here...

their famous strawberry bushes...

Finally, before we left, we just captured the beautiful view and moment, unleashed ourselves and enjoyed the fresh air like there’s no tomorrow. 

By the way, we bought two rose plants (red and yellow), one hydrangea and one pot of yellow dahlia to replace the old ones...

Vocational College Tour

Vocational College Tour 2012 is one of its outreach activities in introducing the college to the people all over the country. It started in Batu Pahat, Johor on 28 May and will end today 1 June in Malacca. Yesterday, the convoy stopped in Kuala Selangor (near Tesco) for central zone and we were the host. The convoy departed form Taiping early in the morning and reached our place at about 12.30 (one hour late). Apart from the waiting, everything else went on smoothly. My principal should be pleased with  the event as  he sent us "thank you note" immediately after the program...

Here are some pictures of the day...
