Salam to all,
Last Sunday, there was a major electrical repair being carried out in our area. We were given a week notice of the power shut down that lasted almost 8 hours from 8.30am till 4.30pm. Luckily the black out Sunday falls on hb's off day otherwise I would have gone crazy trying to entertain Jannah as she kept on asking to turn on the tv. I woke up early that day but only had my shower at abt 8.10am and was lucky again as the power was shut right after I finished my shower. I couldnt imagine showering with cold water!! Still managed to prepare breakfast as our stove was running on gas, got Jannah ready and we left the house at abt 10ish am.
We went to Hamilton and did a bit of window shopping and aheemm 'accidentally' bought a few things. Had a seafood basket lunch which consists of fish, mussels, oysters, crabstick, squid rings, scallops all battered served with a portion of hot chips :p yummz yummz. We then proceed to Miranda Hot Springs which is about 1.5 hours drive from Hamilton.

Also last Tuesday, 2 of my Malaysian girlfriends that have left NZ after completing their PHDs came back here for a short trip as one of them attended her convocation. Alhamdullilah we managed to catch up this time as I missed catching up the last time when they were here. We chilled at Aunty Eton's house and I managed to baked feijoa cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and apam polka dots. Didnt have time to photo them at home but I managed to snap a few photos. They have left for Malaysia last Saturday....I wish them all the best for their future endeavours and all the best for their upcoming weddings.
Chocolate feijoa cupcakes with cream cheese frosting that I photoed them in the boot of my car :D
Apam Polka Dot the return ;)

I have read some where that u can sub it with egg yolks or condensed milk but I am not sure of the quantities. I tried to google for answer but to no avail :(
