Berlalulah Sudah Ramadhan

 Sebulan genap kita berpuasa,
Semoga digolongkan pada orang berjaya,
Diperintah sudah oleh Yang Berkuasa,
Sesudah berpuasa kita beraya.

 Aidilfitri hari kemenangan,
Kejayaan menempuh pelbagai halangan,
Mengenali erti nilai kesenangan,
Bagi mereka yang serba kekurangan.

 Aidilfitri hari kemaafan,
Menghapus kesalahan sesama insan,
Memupuk perpaduan sesama ehsan,
Mengikat kuat tali keakrapan.

Jelita sungguh Puteri Barbie
Berkain cindai cantik dipandang
Meriah menyambut Aidilfitri
Sahabat handai datang bertandang

 Memukul gendang pelbagai gaya,
Amat meriah riang gembira,
Ramai bertandang di hari raya,
Tersenyum riang sanak saudara.

Negara kita aman sentosa
Jangan dilupa orang terinyanya
Makan sudah baju bergaya
Orang fakir jangan dilupa
 
 Tanpa mengira miskin kaya
Pangkat kedudukan hamba shaya
Sama-sama menyambut raya
Maaf-maafan dihari bahagia  

 

Sungai disusur sehari-hari
Dalam gelap menangkap ikan
Kami menyusun sepuluh jari
Salah dan silap harap maafkan


Adik tersayang segak bergaya
Mengait kuih di atas para
Suasana riang di hari raya
Bermaaf-maafan riang gembira
 

Gemersik takbir mengundang hiba,
Salam diutus tanda ingatan,
Syawal dinanti menjelang tiba,
Salam diutus pohon kemaafan.
 
Dalam kerendahan hati ada ketinggian budi,
Dalam kemiskinan harta ada kekayaan jiwa,
Dalam kelembutan lidah ada juga keterlanjuran kata, 
Dalam gurau & senda tentu ada khilaf & dosa.
 
 Mohon ampun dan maaf jika ada terlanjur kata,  terkurang rasa, dan terburuk rupa.
Terima Kasih kepada yang menempah kek dan biskut raya drp wizcakes.
 
Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri,
Maaf Zahir dan Batin.

wiz dan keluarga.

1, 2...Juice!

I bent down slowly to squat on my toes and peered into the lower half of the fridge just to check if I had enough greens for that day. The basin I brought with me always seemed too small to carry my harvest. I ended up coming back for a second round. The plucking began with the green  and red apples, pears, lemon, oranges, and a very ripe guava I managed to grab at a "reduced to clear" price. The vegetables consisted of broccoli, tomatoes, carrots, cucumber and a dozen of belalai gajah leaves. I never peeled the fruits but only cut them in chunks before cramming all of them inside the blender. Blitzed the beautiful content a couple of seconds before the sieving process began. I normally get a big jug of the green juice leaving me a bowlful of the fibre behind. I try not to discard as much, most of the time using the remnants for our dish for that day. Our food centers around the fruits and vegetables used and so far I have done variations of curries, nasi goreng, currypuff, poppiah, murtabak, nuggets, all using the leftovers for our iftar. It saved us many trips to the pasar ramadhan. I reckoned, we would have enough food on the table for iftar this year by just surviving on veges and fruits alone.  My kids who have never given vegetables a second look prior to this project, have eaten all that I have prepared, maybe because they were just hungry to be fussy and alhamdulillah for that.

If anyone were to ask me, what is the kids' favourite food using the remnants from our juice, it would definitely be pizza! It was the only food that they were confident enough to eat without any alarming thoughts of braving through a sea of veges.  They looked victorious and enjoyed every slice and finished one large pan in one seating. Then came the expected question "...guess, what's inside the pizza?" :o)

This is my trusted pizza base recipe. I tweaked the pretzel recipe and came up with this. 


You need to prepare the pizza base first before the filling. The recipe is in the picture. All you need to do is mix the packet of yeast into the lukewarm water and leave it for 10 minutes. Dump the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well until a soft dough is formed. Leave to rise for 30 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the pizza filling by slicing a large yellow onion. Then lightly fry it till fragrant. Scoop about 4 tablespoon of chillie sauce and 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce and fry together with the onions. Put in a teaspoon of oregano leaves, pepper and salt to taste and lastly your minced veges from your juice. Mix well until it looks like a thick tomato paste.

Take the dough and knead it well. Roll it thinly and stretch it evenly onto your pizza pan. ( I just used my tudung periuk, not the ones yang pandai menari lagu putera mahkota, though.) Spread the vege paste onto our pizza base before the generous amount of the other cooked ingredients like sausages or chicken and beef strips. For a little bit of sweetness you can go Hawaiian by adding pineapples. Then comes the cheese, put as much or as little as you want and sprinkle a little bit of chilli flakes before baking.

Not baked yet.


ready to be enjoyed.



The first thing my son said after his first bite was "...sedapnya Ma! first time mama buat tak der sayur2 yg Anin nak kena kluarkan."

keh keh keh ...and so he thought.
