Oreo cupcakes
Made this specially for hubby's birthday last Friday ;) Well he isn't a fan of Oreo, but I had no idea what else to bake, I din't want something too complicated, nor too easy :p

Anyway here's the ingredients:
200g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
240g caster sugar
3tsp baking powder
80g unsalted butter
2 eggs
200ml milk
2tsp vanilla extract
16 whole Oreo's

1. Sift the flour,cocoa powder,baking powder and salt into a bowl give it all a whisk around.
2. In a separate bowl beat the butter and sugar together until it combines then add the vanilla extract and the eggs 1 at a time whisking them in slowly.
3. Alternately add the milk and flour and bring it all together,adding any remaining flour at the end.
4. Place a piece of Oreo at the cupcake cases.
5. Pour the batter into cupcake cases, covering the Oreo's and bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes in the preheated oven (180'c).

For the cream topping:
150g softened unsalted butter
350g sifted icing sugar (I reduced to 250g)
1tsp vanilla extract
1-2tbs milk
3 or 4 crushed Oreo's 

1. Crush Oreo using food processor or in a bag.
2. Beat the butter and icing sugar and vanilla together for a good few minutes until it becomes very smooth and fluffy. 
3. Add the milk a little at a time if you find the consistency a little too thick.
4. Mix in a spoonful at a time of the crushed Oreo's.
5. Continue beating til the texture is creamy, pour them into a piping bag and squeeze on top of the cakes.
6. Next put a piece of Oreo on top the cream topping.

(seriously, this cream batter is so finger licking good!! Sinfully yummy!)

Tada!! Really satisfied with this batch of Oreo cupcakes!

And this is how the bottom looks like

Something sweet and hearty for my darling <3
He loved it, so as my little man Aden ;)

Well, if you are wondering how we celebrate his birthday, we din't. Or may be we did, we just went for a simple dinner together at a hawker center, no fancy fancy restaurant, haha xD
But happiness can be as simple as that, right?

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)

Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155

The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

Hi world! It's been a while! Hope you are doing fine! ;)
Life is busy as usual, and extremely tired lately due to the crazy weather and sick bugs came visited me :( 
Got to sleep soon, just wanna come in here to make my blog a bit alive, haha!
Take care and have a nice week ahead!

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…
