I wanna be the best apple!

Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy.

So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, THEY'RE amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

# and I want a brave climber to pluck me off! peace yaaaww! ;)

My weekend project

CMC with peaches & nuts

Assalamualaikum my dear readers!

How's your weekend? is it good? Alhamdulillah, it's a best weekend for me. I had did some experiments on my Choc Moist Cake (CMC).

I called it unplanned experiment since I didn't infer any inference! heh. *applying primary science* I just woke up this morning and took breakfast and suddenly my tekak felt rasa macam nak makan kek. haha. padahal boleh kata everyday I ate CMC since I have small CMC business with Athirah and Safura. Alhamdulillah, the progress is good becomes better. Last few days, our colleagues have tried our CMC and they ordered 2 pieces of cake without hesitate. Custom made. They just requested anything as the topping as long as it's according to their budget! Fulalala~

Wokay2. It's like mcm takde kena mengena pun kan dengan my weekend project kan? Back to basic okay? So, today, as I mentioned before that we have received 2 orders of cake, I tried to do some experiments first before jual kat org. How would be the cake texture and taste when I top up with strawberry cream, choc chip and choc lava+fruits

So, after did the baking, I top it up with strawberry cream balance which I had whipped it last week for cream puff. Result: it's over sweet. Not suitable for oldies and me too. I don't prefer it. Enough said. Lepas ni tanak guna strawberry cream dah.

2. Choc chip. Result: i have did it last 2 weeks. and the choc chips were sunk and it gathered at the centre. Mcm xbest. Rejected.

3. Choc lava+fruits. Result: hari ni buat choc lava guna Milo since cocoa powder da habis buat kek td. *haha. thats why I said that it's unplanned experiment. If not, of course, all the ingredients are enough already!*  Rasa mcm kek batik (anyone who have tried my kek batik mesti tau mcm mana rasa dia) but still can't compete with true choc lava; choc ganache! And, I have add up with peaches and nuts. The taste is not bad! I can't describe by words. Kalah King's cake. Bahaha.

That's all. Next order, I think it should be add up with strawberry. Mesti lagi sedap!

P/s: i. Baking and cooking are good therapy. U will forget all ur problems and do enjoy ur passion!
ii. Straight after baked the CMC, I cooked for lunch. and, now, rasa mcm nak pengsan awal. sbb penat sangat berdiri kat dapur :p
iii. Anyone nak tempah ikut bajet boleh call me okay? Suitable for makan saje2 for chocolate lovers and birthday cake etc etc.

Honest, open, genuine

I truly believe that being honest, open, & genuine can get you everywhere. We are always trying to figure people out, who to trust, who to invest in, who to be-friend, who to support, & who will support us as positive soul. Without realizing we often to to impress others, give to them, or do things to encourage their positive feedback towards us.

But, what stands out the most to me is not that perfect person with the perfect looks...who has everything including what "seems" to be a perfect life. No. My life is not perfect, nor am I. What attracts others despite perfection...is a genuine & honest, warm, positive person who is not afraid to reveal their imperfections, failures, and who truly listens to you. 

It puts us at ease. It allows us to trust and open up. It makes us feel special and perfect as we are. It makes us comfortable. It draws us in. It causes us to want to offer more. 

Just be genuine in projection and intention. People will respond very positively to it...and be very grateful for it. To hear of imperfection does not send positive people away. It draws them closer. :)
