Mission accomplished

Hey folks, how's your weekend? As mentioned I had a mission over the weekend, something which I abandoned for some times, sorry for letting you guessing but actually it's not really a big deal, LOL :D

I sharpened my baking skill once more, ever since the last time which was about 6 months ago =_= Sometimes I think I'm not a good wife/daughter as I rarely cook :P There're times which I really wanna cook/bake something but too bad there's always this lazy bug inside me.. ok enough excuses, now shall we move on? :P

But first, I'd like thank Kristy from My Little Space for guiding me on waterbath method. Thanks again! Not going to elaborate on the steps but you can view it here. I followed the exact same steps.

in the making..

nicely done~

the close up... it was my 1st attempt in cheesecake. Din't really look nice, but tasted not bad! Only thing is, the base wasn't as good as expected (though I thought it's the easiest part)

But no worries, more chances in the future! =)

On a separate note, here's something which cheers me up on a blue Monday....

a letter for me?

not a letter though, it's a pair of cute keychains all the way from Sarawak! Thank you Willie, you're really kind! I'll hang them nicely on my office cubicle ^^


  1. LOL, I'm tempted to bake cheese cake too, it's my favourite cake at anytime!

    Nice keychains from Willie, he is so kind!^-^

  2. wah............i want...with kopi-o kau!

  3. Hey Hayley, thanks for the shout out! I think your cake turned out perfect. The top is so so smooth. Congrats! Btw, did you keep the cake refrigerated overnight before serving? That is very important. Otherwise, the texture will be too soft to be cut especially the base and not nice to be eaten as well.

  4. I knew it..hehe..your mission must be something to do with baking/cooking. I think the cheesecake looks good wor.

  5. I think the cheesecake is very good considered it's the first attempt!


  6. It is so toughtful of Willie. Thanks for the treat. Very yummy.

  7. wow... cheese cake!! look so good~

  8. Knew you would be cooking up something,i was wrong in a way that's not the cooking but baking. Anyway, it is nice that you got to indulge back something you love to do,, good good, now ta pao for me, can or not?

    and isn't it lovely to receive something from our blogger friends, i am a reader of Willie's blog too.

    take care now and now i want Black Forest cake,, can or not can or not can or not ? hahhahahah just kidding

  9. Not bad at all for the 1st time , i hardly bake cheese cake, cos my cheese cake alwasy 'tak jadi' i try this water base before, somehow it didnt turn out as good as urs ....

    Good try ....

  10. The cheesecake really done pretty well! good job hayley!

  11. Well done! Your cheesecake looks perfect and doesn't look like it is baked by an amateur :) I'm also very lazy and unmotivated when it comes to baking cos everything I bake (esp cakes) also tak jadi or not nice haha. Hope to see more of your "missions" in the future:)

  12. Alice Law, its my favourite too!! ^^

    ChrisAu, well thats a good combination!

    Kristy, I did keep it refrigerated after baked but I cut it after few hours =_= Cant wait to taste how is it... LOL :D
    Anyway, thank you once again!!

    Mummy Gwen, haha you're so smart!

    Dora and AngelineBK, thank you!

    Yan, no problem~ Thanks for being my guinea pis :P

    Evelyn, yea~

    Eugene, LOL, next time may be. Wait til I'm really good in it, then I'll belanja you =)

    Anggie's Journal, practice makes perfect! Gambateh~

    ChloeRuoyi, I also hope the lazy bugs in me will go away, so that I can continue to bake something... haha :D

  13. That cheesecake look good to me! Nice try !

  14. Errr...unable to post comment? Geee...I have to rewrite. Ahaks!

  15. Hi Hayley,

    I really thought that it was a big mission...really big...I thought you're going for a scuba dive or something. But baking? is a really big mission because not many people can bake. Hopefully you'll do it often so that you can be a good daughter and wife and soon be a good mother like Alice, who taught her daughter to bake.

    I have to agree that the base looks ugly. But hey! What matter is the taste! I always go for the taste and not the presentation.

    The gift? Thanks for blogging about it. Although I have many readers, I think you are a special reader because you never miss to comment on each of my entry. Not many do that. I guess you are exceptional. Hahaha! Thanks once again yeah?

    Have a nice day.

  16. mNhL, thank you!

    Willie, haha, sorry to disappoint you :P
    Anyway thanks for the comment! I'll try harder and do my best~ Once again thanks for the gift! They are sitting nicely at my office cubicle now =)
    You have a nice day too!

  17. Cheesecake! I love them! Yumzz~~!!!
    Try making those that don't need to bake next time too! What about Oreo Cheese??? :p

  18. Mm yummy looking cheesecake!! Never tried the waterbath technique. I did the 4 ingredients cheesecake and it was yummers :)

  19. I'm not sure what is waterbath technique, but your cheesecake sure is delicious and tasty... thanks for the treat.

    And the Sarawak keychains are cute and unique :)

  20. Shirlexia, yes I'd like to try those which doesnt require baking! Next time!

    Petite Cherie, thank you!

    Yvonne, no problem. Glad that you like the taste =)

  21. *slurps* so yummy. now my tummy is growling :))

  22. Barbara, hehe, I hope you're searching for some food now...

  23. Hey, your cheese cake looks nice! for me, I have never baked before.....paiseh! ^_^ i only sekadar cook lauk-pauk kind.

  24. Alice Phua, thanks! Just tried to sharpen my baking skill to kill time, hehe ^^

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
