Dulu Kuntum, Now InTrend..

I've never been featured in other magazines except for Kuntum..Do you guys remember Kuntum? I got featured in the magazine when i was in standard 3 wearing a prefect uniform with a songkok on my head and a wallet chain attached to my trousers...oh memeries...:p

Oh another time my face appeared in a magazine was in Klue but that was just as an unknown person in the background... Haha...

Yesterday, I got mentioned in a tweet from one of my followers, ashieniesha. She wrote " @NabilAizat's blog appear on InTrend mag issue Nov =) " I replied " Ye ker? Cam x caya je.. " So I asked her to send a twitpic of the article. The other pics are taken by my dad..Thanx Ayah!



It's a short article in a blog compilation entitled "Nota Sang Petualang". In case you guys are wondering what Petualang means, here are some of the definitions I've found online.

Kamus Dewan (2005) 
Maksud 'petualang' ialah (1) orang yang bertualang, orang gelandangan, pengembara; (2) orang melakukan sesuatu dengan nekad (curang dll) untuk kepentingannya sendiri; (3) orang yang suka melakukan perkara-perkara yang sukar atau berbahaya untuk pengalaman.

Mykamus.my
Petualang  means gadabout, adventurer, wanderer, voyager, vagabond

Terus I letak status on FB
 "X sia2 i gigih tulis pasal tourist attractions in Germany and other places i've visited.My blog kluar dalam IntTrend Nov issue..terujaaa..."

Thanx InTrend for featuring this blog....I appreciate it a lot...And the fact that it enters the travel blog category makes me wanna blog more about the great places in Germany and other interesting countries I'll visit one day.. :)

Dalam banyak2 gambar, gambar tengah makan waffles gak kena pilih..
howoe... :Þ
Till the next post..
Tschüss und mach's gut!

Wabbit wants a carrot cake!!!

What's up doc? :)
I have been craving for a carrot cake the whole week.So I did a bit of research on my favourite cooking website, allrecipes.com , and found the best carrot cake recipe ever.The cake turned out great and the taste is simply divine.Oh talking about it now makes me drool...

So what are you waiting for? Go pluck some carrots and get started!!!


Carrot Cake with creamy cheese frosting...

The ingredients needed for the carrot cake:

4 eggs

 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
(better if you use 3/4 cup vegetable oil and 1/2 cup applesauce)

1 cup caster sugar

1 cup brown sugar

3 teaspoons vanilla essence

2 cups of all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

3 cups grated carrots

1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1 can (8oz) of crushed pineapple

The ingredients needed for the cheese frosting :

1/2 cup (125g) of softened butter

1 tub (250g) of softened cream cheese

3 1/2 cups of icing sugar..I think 3 1/2 cups is sweet enough but if you like it very sweet you can put 4 cups.

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

(Optional) 1 cup of chopped walnut/pecan. It gives a nutty taste to the icing.Yummy!


Steps needed to make the masterpiece...

Carrot Cake

  • Beat together eggs, oil, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla essence until it is well mixed and fluffy.
  • Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg

  • Stir in grated carrots and crushed pineapples.
     Make sure you only take the grated carrots and not the carrot juice.
    You don't want your cake to be wet..

     We didn't find crushed pineapples can so we bought the normal pineapple can and Darwin helped to crush it with a spoon and a filter. Squeeze out the juice before adding it.
    • Fold in chopped walnuts/pecans
    •  Pour the mixture into prepared baking pan.The recipe is for making a layered carrot cake.I just did one layer so i got two cakes instead.


    •  Bake in a preheated oven (175 degrees C) for about 40 minutes, or you can check using a toothpick to see if the center of the cake is fully baked.
    •  Let the cake cool for about 10 minutes before turning it out onto a rack for it to cool completely
      
    Cheese Frosting
    • Mix butter, cream cheese, icing sugar and the vanilla.Beat everything until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

    • Stir in chopped walnuts/pecans if you like.

    • Frost the cooled cake.Time to decorate you cake according to your preference.
     I seriously need to improve my skill on decorating a cake.
    Nampak sangat homemade...:p

    Wabbit is happy...Wabbit wanna eat more carrot cake..
    Om nom nom nom!!!

     Tschüss und mach's gut!!!

    Konnitschi wa Japan-Tag!

    The celebration of Japan Day on 15 October 2011 marked the 10th time this wonderful event being held in Düsseldorf, Germany. Düsseldorf has the largest Japanese population in Germany and even in Europe.You can find a street named Immermannstrasse that is well known as a japanese street in Duesseldorf.Signs are written in Japanese, various japanese restaurants and about 70% of the people hanging out there would be Japanese.Cool huh? Kalau la ada Malaysian street kat sini..bleh la i gi lepak kedai mamak makan roti canai nasi kandar thosai semua.. :p

    Experience Nippon with music, sport, manga and the best of all, fireworks!!!

    I only learnt three important phrases in Japanese...Konnichiwa, Sayonara and Arigatou gozaimasu..That'll get me around right? hee..

    I think something is wrong with this pic but i just love it...
