Salam, Kia Ora...
Happy Monday everyone ;) I'm still on a mission to finish 2 more kumaras~~sweet potatoes that have sprouted roots. The menu that I chosed today is curry puffs ahakks....but I only used 1 kumara :( I still have 1 more left. Haven't got a clue what I should do with it at this moment.
I supposed its just gonna be a short and sweet entry today as I haven't got much to report...hehehez. Don't have to describe much how a curry puff should taste like, I'm sure everyone knows it. I got the pastry recipe from As @ Teratak NurKasih. Wonders why my curry puffs pastry didn't turned out as smooth as hers...hehehez?? Anyway, enjoy the recipe ;)
PS : I was watching the 6 o'clock news while posting this entry. The headline today: A young woman was found burned to death at the side of a road. Her husband has fled to Fiji with their son on the day her body was found. Haiiizzz how can a human have the heart to do that? It must have been a painful death for her :( *tsk* *tsk*...
