Jangan Pernah Say NO

Kneading dough has never been a task I enjoyed doing. As far as I'm concern, the last time I kneaded was like 3 years back. That was when I accompanied my little cousin sister playing with her play-doh. Fine, itu permainan kanak2 so basically ndak masuk dalam list agenda making real cookies. Therefore, I guess I could proudly announced the first time I kneaded was 2 days ago. And it wasn't the kind of love at the first sight kinda experience for me. I loathed kneading! I swore I hollered out the word loathe endlessly that night. Mother stared at me & said..."Baru canai pun sudah give up. Mau bercantik lawa kalau keluar, sekali masuk dapur benda paling simple pun hancur".

Ok that was it, should withdraw the word L.O.A.T.H.E immediately. And instantly replaced it with"I will try my best next time". pfft! Having an assertive observer like mother has somehow turned me into a person who doesn't give up easily. Her remarks sometimes sounded rather cynical has never failed to bring me back to the right track so far. Alhamdulillah. My cookies turned out ok to mother's eyes, same goes to the taste. But I simply couldn't accepted the way I mold the cookies. And I disfavor the way it was kneaded. The thickness wasn't up to my standardization. Uhhh dasar! Pencerewet tegar.

To enhance my skill, I decided to stay home today. Mainly to learn the technique to knead. Erk, tipu. Sebab utama, I was too lazy to go to the kedai. Second, mau buat another 2 cookies. Then lastly, baru sebab mencanai doh tu. Walau berat hati mau try recipe yang perlu canai-an...I really have to at least try one. Baru sesuai guna statement berjuang hingga tetesan darah terakhir.

Alhamdulillah berkat sabar & kesungguhan *ehem clearing throat* aku berjaya akhirnya. Syukur. Ndak sia2 aku perah keringat nan ado. The outcomes so worth my sweats. Pastu suddenly getek mau kunun buat biskut satu lagi secara knead & mold. Adei bikin pening syok sendiri ndak kenal titik noktah.


My Nestume Cookies. Ignore the shape. As I said previously, buruk bidak langsung ndak da rupa.

It was supposed to be Choc Rice Bubble Cookie...

But considering I only have colourful rice in stock & insufficient amount of choc bubble, I improvised the recipe. I used choc chips instead. Because the other day aku adalah getek membeli sampai dekat 2kg. Nevertheless, I'm kinda admire myself already. Looks perfect to my valuation; perfect thickness & shape. I is happy. Like, perlukah puji diri sendiri? Oh yeah, harus gitu.


Ketagih untuk mencanai maka tersiaplah cookies ni. According to the recipe it was named Almond Snow Cookies. Yet being me who enjoyed being in the state of delusional, I change the name to Pink Snow. Only because I used the pink choc coating instead of the original choc color.
Pengajaran di sini...jangan membenci & putus asa atas sesuatu perkara yang gagal anda buat untuk pertama kali. Cuba & cuba lagi. Sekalipun anda gagal lagi dan lagi, at least anda sudah memberikan yang terbaik. Orang bilang, ndak kempunan. Eceh bermadah nasihat kunun lagi. Memang semangkit lah sekali.
