Japanese Style Cheesecake




When the cat is away.. the mice got bored.... yep yep.. hes not in town again.. hb flew to HCM yesterday and will be home on Friday.. I shud hv just rest at home after a hectic wkened but instead I decided to take Sonia to the zoo this morning and stayed there till after lunch.


By the time we were done and back in the car i was so exhausted that i had to wait a few mins bef i cud even start to drive.. honestly my greatest fear was .. falling asleep while driving... :o(





We got home safely.. alhamdullilah.. put her to bed and after sholat i managed to nap for an hour .. I woke up.. baked Hairi his fav cheesecake.. (yes my son is still on MC and will hv to go back to take off his stitches this friday... the same day i hv to send Sonia for her booster jab which i think i might call them up tmrw to defer the date.. the same day I hv to go to the airport to fetch hb..)





Anyway i cant stay long.. Sonia is sleeping next to me and i dont want her to wake up to the sound of my typing.. for some reason she kept on saying "takut" "takut" after i fixed her new thomas train track two hrs ago (I had bought it for her earlier today when I was in town to meet up with sis Lyn and Wati for a quick coffee) she was all ok at first till i went down to get some batteries for her new toy.. she suddenly started shouting for me and looked really scared when i got to her room.. she said she doesnt want thomas and wants me to put it away.. honestly i cud sense something wasnt right when she keeps on saying that she wants her roller blind to be up too.. hmmm .. it was almost midnight.. Hairi is not home.. alone in our 5 storey house.. best solution.. sleep together hahaha

sedapnya nampak kek ni....nak try la buat, saya ni memang giler kek kek cam ni... napa sonia takut tu? mungkin mata thomas train tu besar kot dengan bunyi kuatnya tu..anak2 saya pun, kalau beli toy baru yang bernyawa ni, mmg takut, but 3,4 hari lepas tu ok..

Babe u tengok lah .. i dah type panjang panjang aleh aleh my lappy shut down by itself.. haizzz

Pasal semalam tu.. i actually dah rasa semacam tau but as always lah i ignore aje feeling2 cam gini .. to me kalau tak rasa takut to the max i boleh handle lah.. after all if ade orang lain kat rumah ni tak pe jugak.. ni tinggal i and sonia aje.. so if takut pun harus force kan diri rasa berani..

At first after i fix her train set she was all ok.. then i went down to get new batteries.. thats when i heard her jerit jerit nangis.. i pun ape lagi terus lari atas and i saw her crying and heard her saying takut takut.. dont want thomas.. dont want battery.. mama keepppppp.. lahhh tadi kat mall nak sangat train set baru now tak nak pulak.. so i simpan balik dalam kotak and shower her.. hati ni tak sedap aje.. bila dah mandi tu i put her to bed and thats when she pointed kat window and told me to roll up her blind.. i rolled it up.. took her to my room.. sholat.. baca yasin and terus selubung under blanket.. bila dah baca ayatul kursi banyak banyak rasa seram pun hilang.. dah tu boleh update blog and skyped dgn my hb pulak muahahha.. ade ade aje!

Rima said...

Jess

Entah lah Izah.. shes into train track and she has a few thomas train track.. selalu tak ape ape.. tak tahu apasal lepas i dah fix the track and place thomas and its friends kat track dia behave macam gitu.. padahal dia jugak yg nak pasang battery.. dont know what happened waktu i turun bawah sekejap ambik battery tu yg pasti kita berdua terus cabut masuk my room hahaha

Rima said...

Tak ape ape lah.. cuma semalam tu memang both of us penat giler.. tu sebab rasa yg bukan bukan.. eh dont remind me eh.. i still hv one more night to go wokey :p

Rima said...

Hehe Idah.. if dah tinggal rumah yg bertingkat.. suka tak suka terpaksa jugak buat.. how to tengok serak serak..

Baking tu meringan kan stress yg benarnye.. during sonia nap time lah i buat kerja rumah.. lepas tu harus baking.. lepas baking boleh hv a cuppa with a slice of cake ahakkks

Yan said...

Alaa Rima, u buat lagi eh? Tapi kali ni mmg nampak gebus dari atas ke bawah lah. Ehh and this recipe tak pakai cream of tar tar eh? Leh naik eh egg white tu just beat guna sugar n lemon juice?
p/s bebudak kecik mmg some of them gifted kut leh nampak benda2 nih. like my daughter when she was little.

Rima said...

Yan
Ni different recipe.. It uses salt instead of cream of tartar n the amt of flour n egg pun lain.. To me yg ini lagi shiok ke ne ne hahaha.. Super melt in ur mouth sampai tak perasan berapa keping dah masuk kat tekak hehehe

Budak memang senang nak nampak.. I also can since kecik.. :(

We live in a town house type.. so our 5 storeys tu tak lah sebesar yg u sangka kan but jenuh jugak bila part nak mengemas.. imagine kemas fm one flour to another and bukan senang nak hangkut si mr vacumn up and down.. after living here for a year now i rasa rumah lama i yg 2 tingkat tu lagi senang.. luas but i dont like the big garden pulak cos tak siapa nak kelolekan muahahha ade ade aje.. queen complain nbr one ahakkss

Yan said...

Yup, i notice the diff of ingredients measurement too but almost the same type and same method. I will DEFINITELY try this one too. *u lupa nak bgtau letak salt dlm method masa beat egg whites tu ek. he he.. masa bila nak letak salt? sblum beat ke?

Rima said...

Oh ye ke Yan? Lahh .. Yes u add it sebelum pukul egg white
