Yarns & Cakes Make Life Perfect

Even though I'm slowing down on crocheting...but still I can't get myself away from the yarns too long... true, I bake a lot these practicing new cake recipes and nibbling cake here and there..I would steal few minutes crocheting in front of the tv etc. I call it the 'Curse of the Yarns' hehehehe.

And my pineapple from the oven.

Looking forward for more public holidays ahead....I can bake and crochet more...yes!

Dear Rafidah Pinkshoe

Don't you love the title. To prove that I still love to blog :)...Not that I wanna proof that I'm still here. 

Guess what! I'm selling my own cakes!!! Come on girl, don't get too excited. I've always love baking and cooking. It's one of my favorite past time..other than crocheting and crafting. It gives me a different type of therapy , in a sense of indulging into lovely sweet cakes and cookies get out from any stress or just to relax while having your cup of coffee after a long day at work etc.

I started to try out few recipes , to make sure I got the right and consistent taste & texture. Then I planned for the costing, packaging and marketing which I mostly count on FB for promoting and advertising. Andddddd....cake testing as well!! People will just love to taste few bites of your product and this is good for any comments or suggestions too..not that I'm changing the recipe or anything :)

I started with chocolate rice butter cake and then the premium pineapple cake. Both recipes are quite exquisite  , simple but delicious.  

I still do my crochet stuffs....even though my eyes get tired easily especially at night after a long day at work in front of the computer. Baker & huh? hehehehe

Monday, September 24, 2012's me again

Hi!!! I'm a real a champion when it comes to holiday's FOREVER...I want to blame on the frequent public holidays recently.....and those holidays really made me....LAZYYYYYY ... I have not crocheting much , more on spending myself facebooking (hey! a girl has to indulge into new crochet ideas right...) , watching a bit and there of new downloaded movies, lazying around...sleeping early....doing spring cleaning...went for after raya short trip up east coast, baked some...cooked's been great.

Tell you where I've been....the photos were taken at below resort.

Awesome place with awesome accomodation, not so high in price too.
Once in a's good to get out from your usual place and hometown...see new surroundings....try different type of food....unfortunately I did not snap food photos..what!!! Cause was enjoying them and forgot all about snapping hehehhe....

Lovely scenery..the breeze, the ocean, the beach....speechless. Took my breath away..
Back at home, practicing old fav recipe....pineapple cake. I have not baked this for quite some time and since I have some stocks of baking I thought of whisking few cakes....the urge and excitement of cracking eggs and measuring sugar , butter & flour suddenly creeping through my body....hahahah...dramatic but true.
And I even tried a cream caramel recipe..I've never done cream caramel it's kinda exciting...
Turned out ok..I think heheheh

And who could have resist the spaghetti can cook it earlier and freeze it. The next day....just boil some paste..and walla!

 Baking mode was so consistent...I even baked twins!!! hehehhehe
Last but not least..after all the travelling, baking, cooking etc....back to the most theraupetic session...CROCHETING....

Crochet, Chocodates, Love!

July is in town , I'm way behind the post updates.Not that I'm lazy ...but busy with lots of things.Trying to keep up with the crochet stuffs and also with chocodates orders. Chocodates???'s chocolate dates with almond husband has been in this business for the past 2 years , it's one of his other business venture that's he's into. And this is my first time, doing it on my own....trying to gain new exposure and income for the coming fasting month :)

Interested to try it? :)

I'm still doing some and there, bits and pieces , trying this and that hehehhehehe.....

And I attended my 1st bazaar this year....but not promoting my handicraft...more on chocodates...with my dear friend , Mar who is a baker...she bakes delicious cuppies!  There she to me snapping this photo heheheh


Plus....I did the price tag myself, hehehehe cute don't you think? No? Well,I don't care posting it anyway :)

Doing other thing than crocheting does not mean I'm tired of it. I think diversifying myself would make me more productive, more creative and happy. Yup, HAPPY is the word.

Ok peeps...wanna see your chocolate dates order now! hehhehehe

Leaving May...soon

The weather is not kind nowadays....there goes my health too. Had high fever recently. After two days leaves, I'm back to work. Kinda feeling ok and fresh...with some rains to dampen up the dryness around us.

Back to hooks and yarns....

Not doing much baking lately......but few try-outs on here and there menu ...just to cheer up the mood. Fasting month is just around the corner  and I'm starting to think of what cookies to bake :)...but surfing and watching too many cooking videos make me feel like a celebrity chef hahahahahhaa....and even bought myself an ice cream scoop after seeing a video showing how easy to scoop cupcake batter even though I don't know when I'm gonna use it ....going nuts, I am. 

But hey, sometimes... just by buying a silly ice cream can makes you feel HAPPY! At least, when suddenly at night, I feel like baking after crocheting...THE stuff is there....hmmmmm, think I'm gonna bake something ...yummmy!

April is ending

Hi peeps!

Yeah yeah yeah...i's been ages for not updating here. Not that I did it on purpose though, sometimes I just have to find the right time, the right word to scribble here and of coz photos! What's a blog without lovely photos right? :)..Ok, ok, enough blabbering before I bore you peeps.

Let's talk about what I've done so far 

 red & black hat 

 colorful hat using Alize Wool Acrylic yarn :)

 Champagne color hat using Alize Acrylic Yarn
And....I just found out something...wanna know what ? I can crochet while traveling hehehehe....I managed to do this recently when I went up north state with my husband for his business trip...I was so bored and luckily , i brought together my crochet handy bag...and guess what!

Ta-daaaa!!!! Notice my blue crochet handy bag , snuggling next to me ;) . so next time I know how to kill time during traveling by car. Luckily, I did not get dizzy doing it because I just can't do my reading in a car. I don't mind munching on food/chocs/sweets though hehehhehehehe.

So , where do u do your crochet? While watching tv? On your bed/sofa? I'm sure anywhere you do it, you will just enjoy it as much as I do, cause you love doing it , right? :)
