renu turns 2*COUGH*3

30 Jun

so yea, my other homies and i baked our first cake when renu had her pp3 session.

words of advice?
PLS pLS do not ever attempt baking cake using ur microwave even though the recipe says so.LOL. it turned out like mocha kuih melayu. tastewise not bad but presentationwise its kinda pathetic. Looked like a lump of some honeycomb brown kuih melayu.

so hmm, we googled and found another recipe for simple mocha cake. but stupid stupid me forgot to check the num of servings and hence did not double the ingredients. the outcome? it turned out to be a super flat lopsided simple mocha cake.LOL

well, thats not the *ahem* worse part. In our attempt to ‘decorate’ the cake with choc glaze and strawberries, the strawberries just wouldnt stay put and kept sliding off the choc layer. so what we did was remove them one by one and dry them with kitchen towel before plopping them back on the cake.LOL. ok. so far no reported cases of diorrhea so i guess we passed the sterility test:P

aerial view of the cake. no cross sections please:P

went to Counting House the following day. bday=celebration=good food:P

i LOVE my mint lamb burger

that came with white zinfandel rose. oo la la~~

yennee me and bday girl

luiyan kena geletek:P

semua orang:)

hope u had a great time ah nu..MUAKKSSSS!!

victoria park

22 Jun

one thing i hate about glasgow: the erratic downpour. ive walked under the rain for 4 consecutive days. that explaines why my flu never get better:(

rain rain go away:(. yea i know u cant see the raindrops. but theyre there. and also i wana show off flo’s photography skills:P

what explains my love for this place: shopping and beautiful parks:)

victoria park was one beautiful park we went to earlier today led my prof jim wilson. it was situated near the jordan hill campus.

see flo was so excitedly cute:P

We were trying very hard to catch up with him as we had to camwhore along the way and the rain definitely did not do us any help.:(

went into the Fossil Grove and was kinda disappointed. Prolly we expected more cos he was raving about how we should rush to the place before it closes. if u want to know more about the place just click here

flo and i bought the same 3 pounds umbrella from Primark. love it to bits. its very handy as it protects us from the rain, wind and serves as a very handy prop to camwhore:P

we accompanied karen to buchanan st earlier so that she can get her handbag. much earlier. even before the shops were open:P

can i teleport myself in there somehow?:P

then we got dumped when she decided to continue shopping. ate fish and chips for lunch before leaving for the train station.

look at the size of that thing!

then off we go!! altho i secretly wish it would continue raining so that i can spend longer time window shopping.LOL.

my homies and i

some of us

us again:P

prof jim wilson
i have better camwhore skills than jase

love the trees:)

loving the flowers

and the lake:)

dengan yieng yang molek:)

then we decided to embrace the inner child in us:P

we climbed

but the kiasu guys climbed higher:P

a lesbo moment:P
so long, farewell

a mandatory jumping pic:P

been a long day. tired but have to prepare for pp3 tmr. its gonna be another long week:(

god bless me

i love summer sales!!

21 Jun

This is just the beginning i know. But the need to buy everything is so intense. Cant blame us for not being able to squeeze much stuffs in our luggage with the meagre 20kgs that was alloted. maybe it was a blessing in disguise.LOL.

thank god we’re going to Victoria’s Park tmr. all we need to spend is just 2pounds for the underground. i hope. *fingers crossed*

everything my homies and i managed to grab from the stores these 2 days:P

girls will be girls:P rain or shine. nth can stop us:P

of shopping and my very ‘happening’ friday

20 Jun

i couldn’t sit still in class. after listening to god-knows-what-not-sterility-microbs-testing-bla-bla for 4 hours i just couldnt take it anymore. it was terribly agonizing. especially after some of my VERY KIASU classmates left the class to check out the summer sales in zara and along buchanan st. i left the class 1 hour before the class ended. i was immersed in guilt. but it was greatly reduced after bumping into some of my classmates on my way out.LOL

Yihui joined me 2 mins after i we went to the city center. just few mins walk away. not exactly financially healthy if ur uni is in the heart of the city:P

the sales in zara was a frenzy. we bought jackets and some other stuffs la. total damage?lets not mention-LAH:P

we were joined by other frens who came after class ended. so basically i could see my batchmates at every corner of the street.LOL.

we then had our dinner in oneils. wanted to try the 3.50pounds set that my homie raved about. soon after groups of familiar faces came in. jbc’s inhabitants conquered the whole place. we were all so noisy it was a miracle they didnt kick us out of the restaurant.LOL

and oh yea, if you noticed my hair was curled. was exiting debenhams when this promoter for some very famous hairstylist’s curling thong persuaded me to give it a try. tried one lock. it was ridiculously short. so i asked him to straighten it back. shoot. the lock was so stubborn. hence he had to do my whole head:P. was so paiseh many random strangers stopped and looked:P i wouldve bought it if its 16pounds and not 60 friggin pounds. it curls in like 3-5 secs and the curls actually stayed despite the strong winds that had been threatening to rip my head of my neck:P sumore need no chemical and any styling product. i wan i wan!!

hung jen’s chicken crockpot

my cheeseburger

ahyi’s and yihui’s salmon skewer. do not be deceived by its lack of presentation. its yumz

our bags:P

we were all excited cos its friday today. awesome! its been a LONG week with neverending lectures and long labs. but then we realised what are we gonna do?shops here closes at 5++pm. we hence quickly made our way to do grocery shopping. better than nth right. like aunties i know:P

on our way back, when we thought the night couldnt get any more boring, we saw a parade rehearsing for some international jazz festival in glasgow. it was all so colourful. i realised Glaswegians have a penchant for colourful parades:P

to celebrate our very boring fri night, ahyi and i whipped up tortilla chips dipped with salsa sauce and cheese. oo la la~~

very wuliao i know. should come up with something more creative besides eating>:P

cari makan

17 Jun
Good food is so scarce here. first few days was spent eating out, frozen food, takeaways, sandwiches etc etc. it gets jelak after a while. the 2nd day itself and i was missing msian food already. Thank god after getting all our utensils, we’ve been whipping up home cooked meals.

Our first home cooked meal scrambled omelette. hate the stove. either it gets too burnt or totally uncooked.:(

stirfry brocolli

ayam kurma. Not bad Ok:P

what we did today. it was done in less than 1/2 hr

spaghetti, garlic bread and mushroom soup. just wana show off our new plates:P

yummy spaghetti

garlic bread. No we didnt make this from scratch.LOL. it hailed all the way from tesco’s frozen department:P

gonna have class from 9-5 again. gosh this is so sickening. and its only the 3rd day. feels like forever:(

west end festival @ Hillhead

16 Jun

So this was an event not to be missed according to many peeps. Its the largest cultural event in Glasgow attended by both locals and nons alike. Gaily decorated stalls were erected at roadsides and stages were set up for performances by locals in kilts. damn sexy wei:P

We did some shopping in Buchanan Gallery before heading off to the event. Wth have to leave at 10am in the morn. Never shopped so early in my life before. Most of the eateries here open at 12pm except for those sandwich takeaways. Greggs serves yummylicious sandwiches in my opinion. better than Subway.

anyways, the parade was good. a lil short though. check out the piccies la ok.

some mascot..if im not mistaken its their footie’s team mascot

got lion dance also..damn cun

cute lil korean kids

some performer and her HUGE accessory

hot girls
we get to see walking ‘plants’ as well

some of us and some random guy showing off his dolce

then we headed to uni of glasgow. it is indeed much more beautiful with its cathedral-ish architecture and their very own park. very beautiful. but of course i love my uni also. being situated right in the heart of the city is not necessarily that bad. at least shopping is just a few steps away.keke. but being the jakuns we are, we camwhored at every corner on our way there. super sweat.roses are everywhere

U get to see pretty daisies growing like lalang too

Glasgow Uni

i wish strathclyde has a park like this too

i heart the tree:P

Some museum near the Uni

and finally, guess which is mine..haha

*Hint*..its blue:P

happy father’s day!!!
