it’s my 2nd attempt to make a muffin, but the result is still a big “no-no”.
gosh, why it’s so difficult to make a nice and delicious muffin?
i’ve tried 2 kind of recipes,and i follow all the instructions carefully. the first time the muffin is too dry. the 2nd time it is too spongy.
honestly,i don’t like muffin 😛
i don’t really like any dessert anyway, except ice cream. only one or two bites is ok, but not more than that.
like what i’ve said i love to bake but not to eat it.
it kinda pissed me off because i can’t make a nice muffin, it’s more than my  disappointment about quiting my violin lessons. i’m not a quitter.. .well,at least not all the time.
so i really really wanna make a nice muffin… mostly because chris really like muffin *sigh*
well, not because i wanna to please him, i can make a bunch of tahu bacem and he’ll be super duper happy and can stand to have lunch with tahu bacem for 3 days in a row, but it’s just nice if i can make some nice cake for him so now and then…
so guys,if you have a nice muffin recipe, share it with me pllleeeeeeeeeeaaassseeeee….

Nala, our dog

Img_0466_2Img_1334_2we have a dog, and her name is Nala, the name is taken from the "Lion King" movie (the girlfriend of Simba).
we found her in our estate, or more precise: one of the neighbors found her. it’s the third  dog that we found on our area (mostly on our garden :P). since the neighbor knew that we’re dog lovers, they decided that we can keep it.. (heellloooo???? why can’t i keep a lost cool sexy guy then?).
we couldn’t train her properly, since we’re both working, so mostly nala stays at home alone.

we don’t know her breed, but we suspect she’s a mix between labrador and terrier, but since we found she’s a fast runner and so skinny, we guess that she’s a mix between labrador and greyhound… but since she’s so naughty so now and then, we decided she’s a mix between labrador and a monster.

somehow she build and interesting habit, first she loves alcohol drink, beers,wine, Baileys… just name it!but of course we didn’t give her that on purpose.Img_1666_2
secondly, she loves to eat chips… it’s not good for her because Img_2082_2
it’s too salty.but we can’t eat the chips without nala knew it because she can hear it when you open the chip’s bag or pringles from far far away… she knew the sound too well!

third, she is an omnivore, so she doesn’t only eat meat, but just give her cucumber, lettuce, carrot, and mushroom… she will eat it.right now, i should share my grapes with her…. she puts her head on my lap,begging for grapes 😛

fourth, she loves to sleep under the blanket.
she loves to cover herself with a blanket, maybe it’s because bed is forbidden for her so she’s sneaking in and thinks we won’t find out,

fifth, she loves to have pillow on her  head,
so she will use your lap, or anything that will make her head is lying higher than her body.

sixth, she only sleeps in "bed", either her crib, sofa, or our bed 😦
one day she screwed up her crib, so we threw the crib away and gave Nala a blanket for sleep. but in the morning we found out that she make our shopping basket become her cribs… hehehehee….
seventh, she loves to stand
on the window while we’re driving… and sticking out her head in the wind while we drive… and of course, the faster, the better, because more wind… she really enjoys the wind. we try to take a walk with nala as much as we can since it’s the best way to make her tired and happy 😛

Actually I really want to give her some bling bling, make her a real girly dog, but my hubby doesn’t allow me, as he says nala is more like a tomboy, not a girly dog, so would look really weird… but well , still i want it…Copy_of_img_3739Img_3773_1Img_3830

Another thing is… Nala doesn’t know weekend from weekdays… so even in the weekend, she’ll be waking us up at 6am (sometimes even earlier)… Good thing that I trained my hubby well, so he will always walk nala… actually i don’t have the time to walk her in the morning, because i always say "5 minutes more" when the alarm goes off (and actually those 5 minutes are usually 15 hehehe)…
