Kek Coklat Moist (Moist Chocolate Cake)


Kek Coklat Moist Paling Sedap di Dunia


Sebab housemates claim sedap. Selalu buat ni favorite. :)

Disebabkan kek coklat moist ni merupakan salah satu kek favorite saya, jadi saya letak gambar kek coklat moist saya banyak-banyak di post ini.

Lihatlah betapa macronya kualiti gambar ini untuk menaikkan lagi selera yang melihatnya.


A. KEK:


BAHAN - BAHAN:


Dimasak:


1 cawan serbuk koko
1 cawan gula halus (atau gula kastor)
1 cawan minyak masak
1 cawan susu pekat
1 cawan air panas


Bahan lain:


2 cawan tepung gandum
1 sudu teh baking powder
1 sudu teh soda bikarbonat
3 biji telur

Luyang, saiz dan tebal mengikut citarasa. Kalau luyang lebar, kek akan jadi nipis dan cepat sikit masak.


Cara - cara:


1. Campur kesemua bahan-bahan yang perlu dimasak, dan masak dengan api sederhana/kecil.

2. Pukul telur sehingga agak gebu. Kemudian masukkan ke dalam campuran yang dimasak tadi. Api jangan kuat, saya risau telur tu jadi telur goreng pula. Tak pun sup telur hahaha. Tak pernah eksperimen pula.

3. Kemudian masukkan tepung gandum yang telah ditapis, baking powder, soda bikarbonat, ke dalam bahan yang dimasak. Rasa-rasa acuan telah cair/sekata, tutup api. Gaul sebati, menggunakan whisk tangan pun cukup.

4. Sapu mentega / letakkan kertas kek di dalam luyang untung elak melekat. Masukkan kesemua acuan tadi ke dalam luyang. Jangan lupa tutup luyang dengan aluminum foil / kain untuk elak wap air jatuh ke dalam acuan kek.

Kukus dengan api sederhana selama lebih kurang satu jam (Jika luyang lebar dan bulat). Kalau acuan macam kek saya ni, lebih kurang 2 jam jugalah sebab tebal. Biar sahaja tunggu masak, cek dengan lidi, dan tak akan hangus sebab kukus, selagi ada air lah. Haha.




B. TOPPING:


Bahan - bahan:


1/2 cawan serbuk koko
1/2 cawan susu pekat
1 sudu besar minyak masak

Chocolate rice


Cara - cara:


1. Setelah kek siap, biarkan seketika.

2. Campurkan kesemua bahan kecuali chocolate rice, masak dengan teknik double boiling.
Susu pekat - untuk menambahkan volume dan tekstur likuid topping.
Minyak masak - untuk mengekalkan konsistensi likuid. Lagi banyak, lagi mudah cair dalam jangka masa yang lama.
3. Optional: Bahagikan kek di tengah, kemudian letakkan campuran topping tadi di antara kek tersebut. Kalau kek nipis sangat, tak sesuai, nanti hancur.

4. Kemudian letakkan topping di atas kek. Hias dengan chocolate rice. Sejukkan di dalam peti ais sebelum dihidang.



Apa yang lebih menarik tentang kek coklat moist ialah teknik pembuatannya tidak perlu seteliti kek bakar. Jika inginkan kek separuh saiz, bahagikan sahaja kuantiti bahan-bahan tadi, dan seterusnya.

The intellectual woman - INTJ




Before starting the points out, let me give brief explanation about INTJ.
INTJ is 1 of the 16 personality types in Myer-Briggs research. This is one of the biggest personality over the internet. It might or not be the most accurate personality type and some would say this is a debunked theory.

However, from my point of view, this personality type is at least the most rational and logic evaluation, as it considers each levels of our personality.

INTJ - Introversion iNtuition Thinking Judgemental

I- Introversion:
Introverts isn't like what people generally assume. It's not crucially about "being quite". But it's more to how sensitive you are to the crowds and noise. Introverts could socialize as well, but they require some decent amount of time to recharge for their energy. Introverts might find it irritating to be around people. Which is a complete opposite of Extraverts (E).

N- I(n)tuition:
Intuition is following the brain based on logical values. This is the opposite of Sensing (S), which is the awareness of the surrounding. The combination of I and N could help a lot in thinking as introverts spends more time in thinking in silent, helping them a more depth of focusing.

T- Thinking:
Thinking is the opposite of Feeling (F). Going to rational and logical values rather than following your heart.

J- Judgemental:
This isn't about judging people. But doing things in a more structured ways. If it falls into two words, it would be "Plan Ahead". Opposite to Perceiving (P). I have really slight values in this type. I'm more like in the middle between J and P, but around 4% dominated in Judgemental.

So what's with the INTJ woman? According to some charts I found on the internet (Quora), INTJ is the rarest personality in female. Try taking various tests and if it's still saying you're an INTJ, then you can say you're an INTJ.

Saying INTJ is rare sounds like a "made up" fact. But if you analyze the personality of the 'REAL' INTJ, you'll find we are kinda rare. I've tried taking few personality tests, and it's still claiming I'm an INTJ. And I once came across to an email which shows my personality test on 2014, I was shocked to see that I was an INTJ as well. It was 5 years ago!

I would brag and call us INTJs as The Intellectual Woman,

1. We are some of the smartest woman you'll ever met. Some other woman might be smart, but how we perceive knowledge is rather different. We embrace knowledge, as it's our passion. I spend most of my times reading, the easiest I could go is Quora reading. If I have more leisure, I will go for the books.

2. We are dreamers, and we are the go getters. And we plan them well. I'll always have backup plans, that's why I always chill.

3. We are the Jack of All Trades. You never know how a year could completely change an INTJ (this is general to all genders). We always discover and learn new things, because that's what thrill us. I could do arts, music, writings, philosophy, science and maths, cooking, etc. Basically a quick learner, because we have a high passion into discovering new things.

4. I've known to be cold an unemotional. But I open up to only special person like really really special ones. We care deeply, but we are UNABLE to show them. You can't imagine how loyal I can be. Generally INT(X) are the most likely to be single due to this reason. But even if we can't show our feelings well, but we'll always find solution to fix things. We are not the types who easily give up without rational reason.

5. Honestly, I always find everyone not-brilliant.

6. We don't usually praise. But when we do, that's the MOST honest opinion from us. We're the hardest pleaser.

7. As a woman, I have a high benchmark to accept anyone in my life. In this term I'm talking about man. I'd rather see what will happen to us for the next say, 5 years time. Because we're independent that we might not need anyone. I'm not saying that we don't need anyone, but why would we need someone who would takes us for granted? And we need dreamers as well, because we plan things well and we're the best to help.

8. Independent. As hell.

9. When it comes to dating, we are some of the lowest maintenance woman. We have a high class personality, but lowest maintenance is that we are self-sufficient. We can stand long distance relationship, we can stand any obstacles, problems fixers, we are basically stable.

10. The old soul. I'm in my early 20s, but thinks like a post 20s.

11. I never "take port" of anyone. Unless you're someone I love. I don't care about literally everyone, if it has nothing to do with this world.

12. If I love you enough, I'm basically your guardian angel.

13. Coldest at its finest. I don't reply texts. Unless it's important, or you're important. We don't bother with "hi", we're optimizing the blueticks. For we have lots of things to do, spending time to work for ourselves. Imagine if I'm in a relationship, and other guys texts me with a "hi", it's a tragic for him though I won't even read. My boyfriend would be like the most stable secured guy in the world for how loyal I am. We don't easily falls for people. Like it's almost impossible, referring to our benchmark.

I think that's for a while. I'll add more next time. Thanks!

It's a long way forward, so trust in me



It is kind of warm to have your birthday at the end of the year. It feels like everyone is celebrating it. The end of the year, the eve of new year, christmas festivals, shopping sales. It's like the Friday night of the year. And fun fact, this year my birthday falls on Friyay.

I've been in long hiatus since 2017, which so far was the most fun and happening year so far. I made it to Japan - my 2007 bucket list. I worked with Petronas Methanol and wearing Petronas coverall I'm proud! I became one of the high council position, a freelance graphic designer, I started to do online business haha, I sold iphones to buy an iphone! I also sell things with my friends to get some money for Singapore trip. I've made some VERY good new friends that are so click. I've made a video team - I never made that level of video before. Honestly I've never met any of these good friends as such those I knew in 2017. If you think I know you on 2017, then you're one of them. I'm glad to know each of you. Thank you!

And then time goes by. 2018 went differently. I am more loose with many people. I lost 5kg just in this year. 2018 has been a wild ride. The year I faced many kinds of fear. I learned how to fake happiness, I learned that I'm not that cold, I have the warm sides that some people could unlock, I learned to be nicer, I understand how prayers answered, I damaged a car which then leads me to fail a test yes that's a complete package, I learned to accept people, I learned that some people might care to listen but if they're not in the same shoe, it's better to keep it to yourself, I learned some people actually cares, I opened up, I lose people, I tried to spend time for people that rather spend time with the others, so I decided to go alone, I took midnight bus alone, I graduated, I had my first hari raya far away from home without any celebration, my closest brother get married, I left my 4 years UTM, I thought I would never came back to JB, I took a midnight flight to Miri alone - the place I never been, I wished to work in Sabah / KL but the life has it's own way - I just missed all the offers with slight mistake, and in KL not any of my application went through, I wished to work in Singapore but I prayed for the best and my life brings me where I am now, I learned to live alone, I cook for myself, do the house chores and actually feels like a mom everyday, I got my first job as an engineer - I didn't thought I could be an engineer, I learned that I actually am a multi-talent, I learned that I could deal damage over time, I learned to be a decent listener, I learned that I'm actually a scary loyal person, I learned that the people who says I'm weak are the one who is weak, and the people who believes in me, and those who says I'm a go getter, are the kind of person I need, and after all I'll be just fine.

I once had the fear to get left out, letting people go, when I was a kid I had nightmares to survive in places alone, yet now I'm living them and being just fine.

I learned that I'm actually a wise, kind, independent, and intelligent young woman. If you're with me, you'll never afraid of failure. I'll help you in any kinds of dreams you have, for everything are worth it.

I understand how prayers answered. Before I fell in love, I'll pray. When I'm confused, I pray. When I get what I want, I pray. Allah will help in everything you do. No matter what you choose next, your life will merge to it's own way. Don't worry and enjoy the ride.

Not to remember the times I actually had some happy times. But the mental breaking is actually dominating them, but I won the fight!

"It's a long way forward, so trust in me. I'll give you shelter like you've done for me."
