Memories of 2017

Sikh Temple/Punjabi Culture

Since it was the Sultan of Perak's birthday, I had decided to visit the royal town in Kuala Kangsar. Two of my good friends went along with me. I drove them to my Punjabi friend's aunty's place in Kuala Kangsar. 
Aunty made us the mango drinks which indeed quenched our thirst.

I was amazed by the Punjabi bed. It's made of weaved plastic and ropes too.

Since the auspicious day coincided with the birthday of the Sikh Guru, we were taken to the Sikh temple nearby.
I was glad to be in such a religious and clean place. We were needed to be on barefoot and cladded with a head scarf. it's a first time experience for both my Chinese friend and myself.
After the prayer with the chanting from the priest sitting in front, we were given a sweet dessert which I must receive it with both palms. Of course, we had to eat it.

My cheese cup cakes

Yearning to make a simple cheese cake. While browsing through the internet, I came across the cheese cup cakes. Methods sound simple enough so I got started..
But I did some alterations.
I used mini Julie's peanut butter cookies as the base.
Used 250g cream cheese
Used 100g icing sugar
Half teaspoon vanilla essence
An egg

Baked at 170degreesC for 15 minutes.

Cooled it.

Added blueberry jam on top of the cheese cupcakes.

Keep them in the fridge.
Tasted it and I like it..
