How to make your own cold brew

I have always loved my coffee hot and black but after after I tried my brother's cold drip 12 hour brew, I think I should try that too. But I guess I'm not ready to do the drip thingy so I looked for DIY cold brew in Pinterest and I found a perfect one made by Table for two blog

Here is my version

I used my kenyan ground coffee that zi bought from Cold Storage

First you need a container to soak the coffee overnight in a refrigerator

I just used a regular plastic container and leave it in the refrigerator for 12 hours. If you want a stronger brew, just add more coffee, less water and leave it a little longer.

This morning, I was so eager to try it so after I was done with ironing (yeah, Sunday is officially laundry day) I took it out and strain it with a cloth strainer. You can find a cheese cloth to strain it or a regular cloth strainer that is sold in supermarkets.

Add some ice in your glass, pour some of the cold brew in it.

 

 

Lastly add some evaporated milk (optional)

Voila! My first ever cold brew milk coffee!!! Weeee it was definitely delish!

 

Operation Green Fingers #3

I haven't planted anything new though, I do want to go to the nursery and get myself a new mint plant and possibly a star fruit plant but nobody wants to go with me :( I asked Zahed, my MIL and my SIL and they politely said No. Hmmm Zahed gave me an excuse that he wanted to go send our car for service yet he is upstairs right at this moment playing Forza.

Anyway, I found these weird creatures on my curry leaves. What the hell are they??

It looks like tiny snails but when I zoomed closer it looks like they have multiple legs. Ewness overload!

Another plant that I have been taking care of is Daun Kesum

This one looks healthy because I gave it some organic fertiliser. We normally use this herb leaves to cook our local dishes like asam pedas and asam laksa.

Last but not least, my aloe plant

The progress is slow but at least there is a progress. The fact it was close to dead last month, I'm really happy that it's growing :).

 

The trip to the new office

I'm currently in the office waiting for Zahed to come over because we are heading to KLCC to watch Hunger Games - Mocking jay part 1!!!


I'm so excited because I just finished watching catching Fire yesterday. I it's a bit too late but I never wanted to watch hunger games before until my sister Tia made me watch Hunger Games earlier this year. How did Josh hutcherson become so good looking?? I remember watching him on The Bridge to Terabithia and he was a litlle kid back then.
Anyways, we went to look at our new office yesterday. We, as in my boss, me, S , Tee and Apip! Yup all of us haha. My boss is cool like that, he wants everyone to be involved in everything. I like the fact that we all are growing together with the company. We wanted to get into 2 cars at first, S's car and the bosses' car but lazy ass S doesn't want to drive so we all had to cramp into 1 car. I was walking really fast at first wanting to get the front seat and Tee was literally running when she saw that and our boss went "are you guys trying to get the front seat?" I actually gave up the front seat for Tee after some considerations.To make things worse, S didn't want to seat in the middle so I was squashed in the middle between my boss and S. Lets just say that 15 min ride felt like hours.
Anyway here's some preview of our new office

Can't wait to move in! If only we can skip the packing ang unpacking bit of the move.
Anyway, I am typing this at home. Watched Mockingjay and it was super awesome!!!!! You should go watch it too but make sure you've watched the first two parts before watching this one or you will be clueless.
Happy weekends!

What your coffee says about you

Initially I wanted to blog about our new office but I am just too tired and sleepy right now. I just finished watching Catching Fire 20 minutes ago and oh my why does Peeta looks so gorgeous in this one??

Anyway, I was going through some stuff on Pinterest and found something interesting also coffee related so I thought I should share it here. Picture source:pinterest

I am definitely double espresso, sometimes triple. It's funny that it says ' you have been awake since the late 90's'. Occassionally I would take latte but the must have is definitely espresso or black coffee. What about you?

Anyway the boss just gave me and Tee the green light to get us a decent coffee maker for our new office which is coo coz I don't think I can go back to having nescafe and I hate drinking those 3 in 1 coffee because the amount of sugar in it.

Time to shop for a coffee machine weeee

 

How have I changed since highschool

I was in the car with Myra yesterday on our way to work when the deejay on the radio brought up this topic "How have we changed since highschool?". This made me think for a while. How much have I changed since high school?

The first thing that comes to my mind is my taste in music. I spent my highschool years discovering good music. My favourite band back then and still is now is Blink 182! I discovered this band back when I was 14. I was writing letters to my cousin Alia who was studying in Australia back then. We used to write a lot to each other. It was like once a month. And she would list the songs that was the current hit in Australia at that time. One of them was Adam's Song. It was hard to get the Blink 182 cassette back then because I was in Terengganu and there were no decent mall back then. No proper music shop so I had to wait for a trip to Kuantan which happens once in amonth because my father's plantation was somewhere near to Kuantan. note: my father was working for Ladang Rakyat Terengganu on their oil palm estate. I fell in love with each and every track in the Enema of the states album and was crazy about Travis Barker for years! Other bands that I loved back then were Greenday( who doesn't love Greenday?), Soul Asylum, Gin Blossoms, bush, Letters to Cleo.. Well the list is long but I think you can figure out the kind of music I listened to back then. Well I still do which explains why S keeps calling me 'the aunty who is stuck in the 90's'. Yeah S is pretty creative in calling people names.

Anyway, beside music I was into reading horror stories back then. We had a collection of True Singapore Ghost Stories by Russel Lee in our house. That book is definitely addictive and Russel is really smart to come out with an idea to publish a book of true ghost stories shared by people who actually experienced them. Beside that, I remember exchanging books ln vampire with this guy I had a crush on. We were both into reading about vampires and we would secretly exchange books with each other. He would leave his book in my desk with a note in it and I would do the same. He was really a nice guy. We still keep in touch when we went to university and right up til now. Even when he is now living in Chicago with his lovely wife. What has changed now is... Hmmm I haven't really changed I think. I still read True ghost Stories but instead of TSGS by Russell Lee, I now read this

I have this on my ipad. You can find it in the app store.

Friends.... I suck at friendships I think. I've always had some trust issues so I have a really small circle of friends. I only keep in touch with a few close friends from high school. In total there are like 6-8 of them. I'm meeting one of them next week for her daughter's 2nd birthday bash. It's like pur annual meeting because we only meet once a year yet we do text each other like once a month. As for the rest of them, I don't meet them often. In fact I think it has been like 2 years since we last met but we do keep in touch on facebook and whatsapp. I love the fact that we are still close even when we don't see each other for years.

My love for coffee back then is just the same as now. I started drinking coffee when I was 13 and got addicted to it. Everyday I have tomstart my day with a cup of coffee. Everyday since I was 13 until now.

So I guess I haven't really changed much since highschool except th fact that now I see the importance of being closer to Allah and I'm a more patient person now. I don't swear when driving as much as I used to haha

Ok I'm gonna have go cut this short. I just fell asleep while typing and this ipad fell on my face. It has been quite a long day today. Will talk about it tomorrow. Now it's time for bed.

Goodnight!
