Oh what a weekend...

I had intended to post an entry late last night but was simply impossible.. my little Sonia is feverish and to see her all quiet is a little disheartening.. me and my big mouth.. always telling others that my little one is a chatterbox.. :o(

Sooo my sis in law landed safely early yesterday.. Sonia was super excited and as soon as she saw her bibik she quickly ran and gave her a big big hug.. she must hv missed her bibik alot! tmrw if Sonia is a little better.. we plan to take her to the zoo.. will see...

Anyway after we got home and while everyone was taking a nap.. i decided to prepare a simple cheesecake.. the plan was to have it today but 3hrs after i placed it in my fridge.. Timo (hb's work colleague) came over.. so i quickly took it out.. sliced em and served it to him.. am so so glad that at least the cheese mixture had set and we are able to indulged in this super delicious.. ice cream like.. super soft in texture and super rich strawberry cheesecake... ahhhh need i describe more how this heavenly cake tastes like?? hehehhe.. recipe fm here

125g of cream crackers - i used digestive biscuit
1 tbsp powdered sugar - sifted
80g unsalted butter - melted.

375g cream cheese
125g powdered sugar (sifted)
250g whipcream - whipped till stiff peak
3 tbsp limon juice - i used 2 tbsp

When I posted the previous entry, I also alerted Facebook on a "copyright" issue. (If you click on a picture it says underneath something like "Is this your copyright"). I gave them the offending images and gave them the link to my pictures. Within 6(!) hours this was the reply from FB:

I was really surprised that when it comes to these type of things, even big organizations can be very effective.

The same morning I received the reply from FB, "Amirah" also replied, apologized and mentioned that it was not her intention to "steal" as she is not good in taking pictures and picked pictures randomly from the net. In a second email she again apologizes and asks to have the FB image removed from my blog.

So, Amirah, here is my response:
1) Apology accepted, but not your reasoning.
2) You seem to be smart enough to crop out my watermark on the picture so I do not see why you should plagiarize other people's images. If you take something which belongs to someone else without their permission it is called stealing - as simple as that. Also, your pictures are not really "random" - almost all were from my blog (including your profile picture).
3) I will not take it any further.. just want this to be a lesson for everyone..and Amirah, because of that I will not remove the FB image.

This episode should go out to anybody out there who think it is correct to copy and paste without acknowledging the source. Even I copy recipes from other places, but it is always accompanied with a reference.

Rima said...

Rima said...

Too many incident like this.. kadang tu macam dah season bila u see others writing abt photo theft.. tak orang tak kita.. sure rasa hati sakit when someone took our hard work just like that and whats worst.. make business like that.. u take recipe orang u hv to link it back to them.. u take pic orang u hv to do the same thing too.. ni namanye iklas :o)

I dont take orders all the time.. when i do thats cos when i feel like it.. i dont want to be bounded by orders or i will be stuck at home and not being able to tag along hb for his overseas trip.. maybe u were right but stealing is wrong and she shouldnt hv done it in the first place.. oh well its over now.. well for now lah hehe
