My Favorite Brownies Recipe

Heihoo, do you love baking?? I do. Here's my favorite recipe of brownies. I got it from my friend @mega-sari, she loves to cook and bake. I learn a lot from her. At first I always failed, because I did the wrong way to melt the chocolate and butter, put in on stainless steel bowl put in pan with boiling water, keep the melt from the water, then the bowl itself should be taller than the pan with boiling water. I love to make it, because it's simply delicious and easy to make!


Ingridients :
150 gr of dark chocolate (compound Chocolate)
100 gr of butter (unsalted is better)                      
180 gr of castor sugar
1/2 tea spoon of vanilla essence
2 table spoon of chocolate powder
3 eggs
100 gr of flour
1/4 tea spoon of salt
1/2 tea spoon of expresso (if you like it)

1st melt the dark chocolate and butter, cool it down
add sugar, mix it, pour it the cocoa powder and vanilla essence, mix it well
add egg one by one while you mix it with whisk
add flour, mix it with spatula
add salt and expresso..
Put on square tray
bake it on oven with 170 degree Celcius for 30 minutes. ting! enjoy it..!! :)

What is happiness?


Have you ever felt that you're on the wrong bus to your destination: happiness?

You might say to get the happiness is by earns a lot of money, or traveling around the world, or even shopping as much as you can.. Is it enough to made you a happy person?

I'm not really sure with what am doing right now. I like it but financially it doesn't worth it. It made me think: "if this is really what I love, then I should never worried about the money". It's not where my heart belongs to. And that's made me think to change things I'll do in the future. I think of something challenging for me. Something that I love to do it so much... Something that would satisfy me more than money..  Hum I think I have to find a new idea. I found it: be entrepreneur. But what kind of entrepreneur? Hmm, still thinks about it. Let time tell..

Yeah, I know now it's just an idea, a random one, and become some words only. But those words i know for sure that i would never regret it.. Alhamdulillah, just by sharing it with A and blogging, I felt easier now.


Everyone has their own way to get what's called by happiness btw. To get through hard time, I like to read encouraging words like these one..

An anonymous said there are 7 steps to Happiness:
Think Less, Feel More
Frown Less, Smile More
Talk Less, Listen More
Judge Less, Accept More
Watch Less, Do more
Complain Less, Appreciate More
Fear Less, Love More


Feel, :), Listen, :), Do, :), <3

Yesterday, I learned something. Something called patience. All day I have to wait for a long time of something or someone. It was boring. I almost cried. Wasting time and energy.  I got something better to do than this. That's what I thought. I grumbled and put a sad face. But, it didn't change the situation, is getting worse instead.
Then I let myself took a deep breath, smile and laugh at it. At everything that made me wait and waste my time. I felt more relax.., in a minute, it made my day.
I said "Sorry" and "It's okay", i felt lighter.
In life you have to deal with others, then it takes your time and energy. Understand others, be patience, forgive, then you'll be life in peace, with a smile..

Took some pics, but not too many. Got myself busy by looking around, amazed my eyes and my mind, and interviewing some people..

whoing,, whoing, whoooiiinngg... There's a crowd in my head..

I'm sorry if these words will bother you.. So many things in my head lately, let me say, work, my wish list,  and marriage.. Ooopss.. what did I say? Yup, let me say my random things in my mind..
About the work stuff, heemm it leads me to the wish list that i have to buy...  
*Netbook
*Pocket Camera

Repair:
- My Lovely 4 y.o. laptop (i wanna to keep her !)
- My 2 y.o WhiteBerry (i wanna to keep her also..)

I am not good with gadget honestly, most of my gadget end up broken cause of little silly mistakes that I made.. (raise your hand, if you have the same problems.. :P ) but I need them.. And it'll cost me a lot this month.. InsyaAllah there will be a way... Amiiinnn...

Second, about marriage..
I didn't think it would be so complicated, but i do realize this is family matter and once in a lifetime memory, that's why people would take it seriously. Alhamdulillah, I found the one, lets call him 'A boy' a.k.a Astro Boy,, that's his nick name from me... Met him on 2006 but I didn't recognize him at all, until we met (again) on August 2011. Yes, that was last year.. Never thought it's gonna be this fast, but I do enjoy my journey with him in something we called "L.O.V.E" or "Unconditional L.O.V.E" precisely. 




Suppose to be grateful anyhow.., and suppose to think big! heemmm,, yoga exercise helps me lately, i must say it fits me better than gym.. and it remains me of my childhood dream as a ballerina!!! :D

and as my childhood remains me of my other dream which is had a pet,, kitten would be lovely.. Kitten and ballerina mixed by, it would become this picture!!! Can't stop smiling now... :)

Blogging made my mood.. hum! I know what i'm gonna do now, office and gadget shopping, yeay!!!! Ciao randomers! :D
