*squeals*

Sigh. Me and my handbag obsession.

How many handbags do I have?
Not enough. D:

My current fav fav fav shop for very gorgeous shoes and nice handbags!
Not that I can afford their shoes...RM100-300 per pair...cheapest also RM75 I think... T_T
But so very very nice.

Fell in love with this bag the moment I laid eyes on it.
Kenot tahan. Had to splurge. T_T
But I've been looking for a more formal, work-ish bag and this fits the bill.
Best of all I can fit my sketchbooks in it! :D
And A4 files! :D
And it's so super soft and nice to carry. :3
(trying to justify my splurge. hehe.)

I *heart* the animal prints inside. *heart heart heart*

They have a lot of very nice handbags at the shop in Midvalley.
But most were too big or bulky. :(

So this one was perfect. hehe. :3

Now to start saving up again. huhu.

om nom nom!

Had a craving for Carbonara yesterday so today I whipped some up for lunch. :D


It's really really simple to make. :3

Here's my recipe (I pretty much just winged it. haha.) :

Make enough for 4 servings. :)

Ingredients:
A Tbsp of butter (sendiri just agak-agak/ estimate it yourself)
A bit of diced garlic for frying
Sausages (chopped)
Bacon bits/ Bacon strips/ Ham/ Chicken (up to you)
Mushroom also if you like

Cream:
600ml heavy cream
3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
4 egg yolks

Pasta:
Spaghetti or any pasta you like

There are many ways you can prepare this...but this is my way...

Method:
1. Boil some water and cook your pasta till al dente.
2. Heat up butter (I use this instead of oil so that it smells awesome) and fry diced garlic till almost golden brown.
3. Fry bacon/sausages/chicken or whatever you need to fry.
4. Remove the pan from the heat and add in the cream and cheese.
5. Cook on low heat and let the cheese melt and mix into the cream.
6. Remove from heat again and pour in the egg yolks.
7. Cook on low heat and allow it to boil a bit while you stir. (the creamy mixture will eventually start to thicken up)
8. Once you have your desired thickness, turn off the heat and add in the cooked pasta.
9. Mix well and serve! :D

Notes:
I did not use salt at all because my bacon and my sausages were already salty enough.
And the Parmesan Cheese was kinda salty too.
Always taste test the cream first before mixing in the pasta at the final step!
The longer you leave it to boil...the thicker the cream...the more jelak you'll feel. haha.
I always get paranoid that the heat from the cream will overcook the eggs so what I do is I will take a Tbsp of hot cream from the pan and add it to the eggs in a separate bowl, slowly adding more and helping the eggs adjust to the temperature before I pour the egg yolks into the pan.

So yeah, basically that's about it. :)

And I've successfully satisfied my cravings for the next...um...6 months. :D

That's the problem with creamy pasta. T_T

I wanna start baking again but my oven went kaput a long time ago. sigh.

Brand new Delonghi oven would cost me RM1000++
*sobs*

confused...

So now that I have a blog, a twitter account and facebook...

Which do I update and when?

Cos FB status is kinda like a tweet.

And tweets are suppose to be micro blogs.

But micro blogs are similar to blogs only blogs have longer entries.

But you use all of them to update friends on what's going on.

hmm.

Too much social networking?

@_@

And then there were 2

The first kitten we rescued punya sibling (guessing cos they look alike) fell into the drain yesterday(sat) and he/she was just as wobbly as the first kitten...so now there are two of them. -_-;

Actually we're not sure of their genders since they're still really young. So we'll just assume that the first kitten is female and the second one is male...though I think both are males. :d

He's the more alert one, but he has diarrhea...but it's been gradually improving. The first kitten still seems to be really weak...refusing to eat and just sleeps all day.

The new kitten is fluffier than the first kitten. And has a head that is too big for its body. lol. And he's a stoner...he would sit in this position, with his head facing downwards and just stone for a few minutes. hahaha. Super cute.

So now mom and I are busy babysitting these two fellas. haih.

On the other hand, am hoping my Malay/Muslim friends are having a fabulous Raya. :)

tiny lil kitten

Picked up this lil kitten from my back alley. She fell into the drain once, we picked her up, cleaned her and tried to give her back to her mom but her mom didn't care and she fell into the drain again. Watching her struggle to walk and the drop into the drain with a loud 'thud' was one of the most disturbing and scariest thing to watch. :( Plus it was starting to rain and when it rains heavily, the drains flood up.

So mom and I decided we'll take care of her till she's strong enough to rejoin her siblings again.

She sleeps in a make shift box for now. We feed her kitten milk every few hours then she'll doze off to sleep. She's hugging a self-heating gel pad that we wrapped with cloth at first and then paper towels cos sometimes she pees on it. She's got a bit of an eye infection so mom applied some eye ointment for her that we got from the vet.

She made it through the night so we're hoping she'll survive and get stronger. :)

OHAI. I can haz hugs?


Hugs n Kisses,
