Trial-and-error Pancake

2

It’s been forever since the last I made a food post, don’t you think? Then, this will be the comeback of delicious story that especially presented to satisfy the demand of the category.

I made this months ago, right on fasting month which fell on August, to be exact, august 2nd 2012. This is a very simple cake, just like the others I’ve made before, that any of you can easily make it as well. Purposely to be a fast breaking snack for my family 🙂 It is, none other than mini pancake!  You can find the recipe anywhere haha but I personally got it from… mom? and some book I guess.

The recipe was being modified along the making, because at first it didn’t look like a pancake, you know, the airy feels. So mom suggested to add a baking soda. But, maybe because it was in hurry (the fast breaking time was coming closer!) the soda didn’t have a chance to bloom and showcase itself. It still gave a little impact though 🙂 The result was pretty good, and pretty much too (or too much? wait no worries, big eater is in the house; dad). Anyway, I felt so happy to broke my fast with the food that I made myself! Add an ice cream to it, is more delicious, using chocolate jam and cheese will also do.

9 hours journey with Ana <3

2

I’m happy with the words ‘first time’ because it feels fun and new!

So last week, I had my first time journey to UI, Depok with one of my besties, Ana ❤ Correction, my first time journey by Bus! I used to go there with either car or train, so we went to Balairung UI for “Korean Culture Day”. Thankfully we didn’t get lost :)).

We arrived there at 10.30 am, it took about 2 hours on the way. I met my friend, Jelita<3 for the tickets, and then we entered the building. The seats was all full, while there’s a Taekwondo performance on the stage (it’s cool). We walked around, and watched the performance for a while from the back. It’s almost lunch time, I supposed, since my tummy kept roaring, so we went outside for the foods :9

There’s a bazaar with some stands, and from about 2 metres away, I could hear the melody of Hello by SHINee! sorry, but food could wait, so we went closer to see what’s on the stand. Lots of SHINee merchandise and other groups’, like Super Junior. (well mostly these 2 groups). And we bought pins xD. From the first stand, we moved over to all the stands in there. It was sooo crowded, it took times until we reached the table, loooots of kpop merchandiseeee. Too many good things which made us confused what to buy, and ended up buying nothing, lol.

The banner-the stands-Messages board

So, finally we went to the food stalls. Korean foods were our targets! Kimbab, Tokpokki, and other foods. But unfortunately it all had sold out!! so we ate Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki instead T__T (lol Japanese foods). It’s delicious, but we had to struggle eating it (too many flour?) Teh Poci saved our lives :3. Anyway I finished it faster than Ana. \^^/  After calmed down our tummies, we went to the cloth stand to buy a lovely cat’s jacket which Ana had fallen at the first sight. She finally bought it after some influences she got from me >:D  It’s cute and cheaper than it should be, so it’d be ashamed if we didn’t buy it, right? (she blamed me all the way, but she’s happy after all, so I didn’t care, lol)

The show on the stage was on break time, so we walking around the bazaar, took lots of photos with Donghae and Ryeowook! and also with SHINee. Well.. it’s only the banners -.- but we’re still happy. We didn’t forget to put our marks on the message board. It’s full already, so we only had a very tiny spot to wrote on it.  Then we took a break, pray first~ then bought more pins for some friends :3 and actually I wanted to buy a fan, but it’s sold out. Best stuffs had sold out already. People were fast T^T. Lesson for next time ;). Another thing before we entered the building; we sign up for the Hanbok wearing stand, so we could pose with Hanbok (Korean traditional cloth) with Rp.10.000. It’s my long-time dreaaam omg ;___;  Because it took pretty long time until our turns, so we decided to wait it while watching the show.

can you spot the Jacket? ^^

Finally the show started, we sit on the floor with the other people, on the right side of the stage. It’s pretty far, and my camera had a broken zoom in function, so no good photos quality, sorry u__u. Two mcs began the show, with the slogan “KCD… Daebakiya!!” (which means big hit) after some chit-chats, wonder girls wannabe performed “2 different tears” and “Nobody” on the stage. The outfits really was similar to ‘2 different tears’ they’re awesome, they said they were chosen right by the wonder girls itself, when WG came to Indonesia last time, don’t you think it’s great? 😀

After the opening performance, came on the stage, a singer, Ari with a guitarist, he sang 4men‘s song (I guess). It’s good! his voice was nice to me. well, no wonder he’s the winner of some competitions. Despite the technical error which made the acapella string from the guitar couldn’t be heard, it’s a good performance. The song still remained in my mind til now (:. And Then he performed a duet with female singer, Ninis, she’s also the winner of lots competition. I have to admit, her voice was amaaaazing!! powerful, and their duet was beautiful, once again I have no idea what was the song. Was it just me, or they really didn’t tell the audience about the song title? -,-.

We had got the dancing and singing performance, so now it’s time for the audience to showed off their skills. I guess about 10 people came to the stage, and it’s all girls (girl power ftw >:)) they’re told to dance to any music video that had shown on the screen before.  Before that, I have to tell you,  kpoppers is used to memorize the dances of kpop songs, there’s even a dance version of the mv by the artist itself. So no need to be surprised of their dance skills (well, it’s still amazing). First to show was SNSD Gee, it’s a cute perf, really gee! And the next was SHINee Lucifer!!! Awesomee, we screamed like mad!! I don’t really remember the others, but 2 others that impressed me were, 4minute Huh and SNSD Hoot.

The show’s going with singing performance again, it’s 8Eight‘s song, with the exact same formation as 8Eight. Real talent we saw here :3 Once again technical problems got in the way, the MCs had to took over the situation, but we took the time for photooos xDD. The last show we got was NES, they performed Shock and Breathe by Beast. Another awesome performance!! with all read outfits and diff designs, they looked like real boyband. I couldn’t see their faces so, I could imagine them being one of the kpop group, but not until they mentioned their names, lol.

The pins and that's Chilsung Cider!

Before we finally get going from the show, there’s a Korean traditional music performed, Salmunori. I guess it’s real Korean who performed that. But we didn’t watch it til the end, because we suddenly remembered of our reservation of Hanbok wearing!! And right, it’s closed already!! TT____TT all I could see was the staffs wore it together and took photos with their private camera. it’s so close, but I couldn’t wear it, well maybe next time :’).

Salmunori and Hanbok (it's me who wanted it badly, lol)

It’s time to go home, we went earlier than it should be, because we didn’t wanna take the risk on being home late, since it’s far. Before it, we prayed and took lot more photos xD and we went home safely with lots of experience and story to share!

PS: Tell me if there’s another Korean or Japanese Festival! or any other interesting festival ^^ I’d love to come! Oh btw, we bought Korean soft drink while watching the show. the seller said it was a drink on ‘My girlfriend’s a gumiho’ it’s named “Chilsung Cider” tastes like sprite, with a more soda :9

Hunger always do

0

It’s not that I always have ready food stock in my house, so I oftenly starving even after I already had my lunch or dinner or breakfast.

Sometimes I just let the hunger stay and forget about it, or make something delicious (yet easy) to vanish the devastating hunger away.

It makes me learn another new recipe, so hunger is  not always a bad thing, right?

Yesterday I made Crepes (as my mom‘s advice) it’s an easy cake to made! Just followed the recipe and in 60 minutes it’s ready to be served 😉

All you need are:

150 gram of flour

50 gram sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

200 ml milk

1 egg. mix it seperately

1 fullspoon melted margarine

and for the fillings (it’s up to you actually)

100 gram grated cheese and 50 gram meises

Mix all the ingredients together till it’s blended perfectly. Then pour 1 big spoon of the dough into the pan, make it like crepes (thin and crisp)

before it burns out, pour the fillings on the side, and fold it, so it will be half circle-shaped.  Do it on repeat until the dough is all been cooked.

Let’s talk about food!

I’ve always wanted to eat many kinds of food from all over the world. Because, I am a food lover. :3

The first food that got my attention is SUSHI yes, that famous ricey food from Japan. Ever since i was in junior or maybe elementary school, i’ve always craved for it. But never be able to taste it, even just a bite. ;__;

many kinds of Sushi

The second one is RAMEN. It always looks yummy in a picture, sometimes read mangas that contain food, is a wrong idea when you’re hungry. But i heard some people said that it tastes flat? i dont know, or maybe because indonesian food is so  spicy? well i still want to try it no matter what.

Rameeen

The third food is still from Japan (i guess i read too many mangas, lol). It’s KARE. It looked more spicy than two other foods.  More like GULAI maybe? Kare with rice that’s nice :9

Curry Rice

Let’s move on to the fourth food: TTEOKBOKKI (떡볶이) we have moved to Korea now. It’s a spicy rice cake, that I’ve seen a loot in korean dramas. But then, my friend told me, that it doesn’t taste so good, like nothing but chily. But she said that chesse and tteokbokki will do. Am I a victim of pictures? (Well it’s just an pinion of one person, so im still curious to know :3)

Tempting rice cake

The 5th food is  GIMCHI (김치) you know, it’s a well-known food from Korea! Usually made from fermented cabbage, or radish, and i just knew that it can also be made from onion and cucumber (how will it taste O_o lol)  Korean dramas really affected me with all their cuisins, because it looks all spicy and yummy.

spicy Gimchi

The last food from Korea is JAJANGMYEON (자장면) it’s a black bean paste noddle. Noddle always succesfully make me tempted. Beside of its delicacy, it’s also easy to made. This jajangmyeon had been the most popular delivery food in Korea because of that. So, me, as the food lover would like to deliver it as well.

Jajangmyeon

It’s the 7th food now, right? Let’s go to Mexico now 😉 TACO which is made from wheat tortilla or corn. What i like are the fillings. It contains beef, onion, chesse, vege, seafoods, etc. it’s like anything you want can be found there! :9 It looks so rich with fillings.

Yummy Taco

MISO SOUP bring us back to Japan,  and also the 8th food from the list. It’s a common food that family in Japan usually eat it as a companion dish. Contains with Tofu, wakame(seaweed), and scallion. Sounds simple yet tasty.

Miso-shiru

I guess that’s all for now! Anyone who read this, would you please send me anything from the list? Thank you before. 😛

PS: I wrote this in so many condition, most of it when i was hungry. (wrong timing! lol) And big thanks to wikipedia and other sources for the pictures and lil bit infos for all those foods. 😉

Rasanya ga terlalu penting

0

Tanggal 1 september 2009 mama ulang tahun. Tapi di hari itu mama sibuuuk banget, pulang pergi warung terus, jadi sedih. Seharusnya pas ulang tahun, mama bisa santai istirahat di rumah. Atas dasar itulah Melly berniat untuk buat kue tar untuk mama. Kue tar yang sama sih,  tar coklat. Yang ini lebih nekat lagi. Ga ada siapapun di rumah, ga ada petunjuk mama. Terlebih lagi melly harus buat kue ini sebelum mama samapai rumah. Selama buat kue ini, melly serasa naik Halilintar, berdebar2 ga karuan deh. Takut mama keburu pulang, takut kompornya meledak, takut salah nakarin bahan dan lain2.
Alhamdulillah sekali, mama pulang, kue udah masuk oven. Tinggal Melly aja waswas mama nyium bau kue ga ya..
Ternyata hasilnya masih agak bantet juga (oven kurang panas), jadilah tenaga super Oya dan Melly buat ngeluarin kue yang lengket membuat kue jadi agak2 gimanaaa gitu tampilannya. Tapi dengan sulapan tangan ajaib (baca:saus coklat), kue tar coklat uji coba kedua ini pun terlihar cantik!
Kita ga mengeluarkan kuenya, trus bilang “Surprisee!!” gitu ke mama, tapi mama sendiri yang menemukan “kejutannya’ di kulkas. Melihat mama tersenyum karena kue buatan pemula itulah bagian terpentingnya! Setidaknya mama bisa merasakan bahwa hari itu ulang tahun mama, dan setidaknya mama punya acara potong kue, dan bisa membagikannya ke orang-orang yang mama sayang!!

Lumayan enak

lagi-lagi gara-gara laper, melly nekat mencoba buat kue tar coklat. Dengan petunjuk buku resep, dan sedikit arahan mama, kue itu pun berhasil dibuat. Hasilnya memang agak bantet sih, tapi rasanya lumayan enak dan yaaa cukuplah untuk cemilan manis yang agak mengenyangkan.. Kebantetan kue coklat ini kata mama sih karena mungkin telornya dingin. Namanya juga pemula kemungkinan gagalnya pasti ada, orang yang ahli aja juga bisa kok gagal. Yang penting udah berani nyoba!!! hehehe. Kue berikutnya harus lebih baik lagi!! Ganbatte ne!!

Karena bantet, kuenya jadi lengket ke loyang, akibat paksaan dalam prosesnya, kue pun terbelah dua T_T
Tapiii setelah dituang saus coklat, keliatan enak kaaan??!! (ayo bilang iya!)
