yesterday was my 2nd time baking pavlova. alhamdulillah. after googling several recipes & watching some videos - here’s my own version of the recipe:
8 egg whites
300g castor sugar
4 tablespoon of corn flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon of vinegar
250g whipping cream (non-dairy)
30g icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
Strawberries, Grapes & Berries.
- preheat your oven to 155 degree C .
- Using your mixer, mix the egg whites till they hold ‘soft peak’. (goggle it so that u’ll know how soft peak looks like).
- While the mixer is still on, start adding sugar bit by bit.
- Add the vanilla essence, corn flour & vinegar. Continue mixing till it holds ‘stiff peak’. Your meringue is ready.
- Draw a circle/circles on the baking paper.
- Spread the meringue inside the circle drawn.
- Bake the meringue for about 1 hours 15 minutes (change the temp. to 115 degree C)
- When it’s done, turn off the oven - let the meringue cool completely in the oven (with the door slightly opened). A VERY IMPORTANT STEP!
- Mix the whipping cream together with the icing sugar & vanilla ess. till it becomes “whipcream-ish.”
lastly, whipped the cream on top of ur meringue & arrange the fruit nicely. all done!
8 biji putih telur
300g gula kastor (1 cup + ¾ cup)
4 sudu besar tepung jagung
1 sudu kecil esen vanila
1/2 sudu kecil cuka makan
250g whipping cream (non-dairy)
30g gula icing
1/2 sudu kecil esen vanilla
Strawberries, Anggur & Berries.
- Panaskan oven pada 155 celcius (setting: api bawah)
- Putar putih telur sampai terbentuk ‘soft peak’.
- Tambah gula kastor sedikit demi sedikit (sambil putar).
- Pastikan gula betul-betul hancur, masukkan esen vanila, cuka dan tepung jagung sehingga terbentuk ‘stiff peaks’.
- Lukiskan bulatan besar pada baking paper dan sudukan adunan ke dalamnya.
- Masukkan meringue dalam oven pada 115 celcius (1 jam 15 min)
- Sejukkan dalam 30 minit. (dalam oven tapi buka pintu sedikit)
- Untuk topping, putar whipping cream sehingga muncul soft peaks. Maniskannya dengan gula dan esen vanila.
Hias meringue dengan whip cream & buah! siap!
This is just a simple version of the recipe. Watch some videos first before u start baking okay?
Here are two helpful videos:
My first pavlova is a normal size pavlova ie a big one.
so for my second time, i decided to make mini palovas!
Goodluck & selamat mencuba!
before i headed back to kuantan for the semester break, which is somewhere in the middle of January - the girls & i headed up to Publika to celebrate Sofia’s 22nd birthday! we chose PickNik as the celebration venue, as requested by the birthday girl :D the place is owned by the famous chef, Nik Michael Imran.
we tried several types of pasta. eeerrrr tak ingat nama semua but i ordered carbonara (the 3rd pasta picture). personally, i think the pasta is okay but nothing to shout about.
the best part is… THE DESSERTS! ohmaigod please please try these two heavenly tasted desserts! the first one is the salted caramel brownie. the brownie is soo soft on the inside and a lil bit crispy on the outside! and the salted caramel sauce….nyaaaaammmmmmmmm
the second dessert is the peanut butter slice. It consists layers of peanut butter, biscuit crust & cream cheese. trust me, u can’t never get enough of this.
For me, the best thing bout this place is the dessert, and not forgetting the ambience. chantek chantek chantek! but then again, there are still more selections of their main dish that i haven’t tried yet :)
Happy Belated Birthday,Sofiaaaaa!!! we wove you! <3

January is the birthday month of my two besties: Shad & Shafiq! so it’s time for a surprise celebration!

on last 2nd February, we threw the surprise at Crocodile Rock.
HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYY SHAD & SHAFIQ! we loveeeee yoooou so so much! :D
and and thank you so much Anith, Paan, Aishah, Nad, Bibah & Luqmal for helping me out in throwing the surprise. this party wouldn’t have been a blast without the helps from u guys :)

Hye Arnie :) I x tau la u perasan ke x, tapi I jumpa ni dlm Beautifulnara page 8. U scroll down je. You know it when u see it ;D and btw, u slalu follow blog/tumblr apa? Yang kiut2 jugak. Ehehe :p
Hallo :) oh jumpa apa eh? I buka page 8 i tak jumpa pape pun? :O
hello! sorry for the hiatus. caught up with chores/assignments and all. tapi sebenarnya takde la busy mana, malas je lebih. anyway, sooo hereee! i wanna share my discovery on one of the best prawn mee i’ve ever tasted! thanks to my dearest friend, endy for introducing the mee & left me addicted to it.
It’s located at Food Republic, (Lower Ground) Pavilion KL. the stall is called “Thye Hong”!
the prawn mee:
tolong lah try, mmg sedaaaap.
tak silap, their menu only consists of three things: prawn mee, oyster omelet & fried carrot cake. and my oh my, everything is so freakin delicious!
the oyster omelet:
fried carrot cake:
and the desserts we ate (bought em from different stall):
heyyoooo! have a nice day :)
Last friday, i had a lunch date with shajijaaaaa! well, it’s Shadjihar actually hehehe. At first, we couldn’t decide on where to eat. When i suggested Mukha, Shad agreed straight away cuz she loves the place! Mukha is located at Lorong Rahim Kajai, TTDI. So, to find a parking spot there….is like a fear factor challenge. mempunyai kesabaran yg kuat & petrol yg cukup? You’re good to go. hehehe. (or maybe because it’s Friday? i don’t know).
This’s my first time there, so i was like “WAAAAAAA, this place is super cozzzzyyy!”
the spaghetti meatball:
the aglio olio:
good food, great ambience & lovely date. i had fun ;) and definitely gonna come here again…. with a driver/taxi/merempit.
they have a little bakery called “Souka”. Since Shad knows how much i looooove pavlova, she bought me oneee! thanks shajijaaa,.. this is why i love you hehehe.
chocolate fever has hit the town. Almost every foodie is talking bout Dip n Dip. soooo, last wednesday, my friends and I drove to Bangsar to try it ourselves! since it’s my 1st time, i was super excited. hehehehe
the waffle stick. my favourite! compared to the other desserts that we ordered, this waffle stick has the smallest portion. just nice for a ‘little kid’ like me ;p
Fettucini Crepe. my favourite too! the portion is quite big, so i guess it is best for you to share with friends ;)
Brownies Crepe. for me, it’s a little sweet as the chocolate brownie is layered with another chocolate sauce.
basically, everything here is chocolate-based. so, to those who loooove chocolate, i suggest you to get ready, get in the car & come here!
and and! it’s better for you to come in a group, so that you can order more. everyone can try a lil bit of everything ;D
last month, on 7th & 8th September, i joined a bazaar organized by Bulan Cafe, Kuantan! ;D it’s my 2nd time opening up a preloved booth. My clothes, bags, shoes & some of kakak’s stuff were up for sale. I had a great time! Received a hugeeee support from the family & friends ;D big fat thank you to all!
and anddd.. i’ll be joining the BFB 2.0 this november! mark your calender folks! ;D
Bonjour! je m’appelle aghnie azgheen. ;D ok cukup le tu.
last monday, the three heroes - Endy, Fendy & Addy and the only rose, yours truly, went to the Bonjour Garden Cafe! it’s situated next to Sunway Giza’s food court. i love their Indoor Garden concept.
the bakery section;
hawaiian chicken pizza:
a steak that Fendi ordered, can’t remember its name…
for me, the food is good but nothing outstanding bout it. but i’d love to come here again for the nachos and bakery section. the bakery section…sedaaaaaap!
thanks endy for bringing me here ;B
Last tuesday, we celebrated Irina The Diva’s Birthday! threw a lil suprise! since the location we chose was TGIF, the birthday diva had to sing & give some speech. and of course, Irina’s more than glad to do that.
Happy Birthday, Irina! we loooove loooove loooove you!
p/s; i got bangs & i’m lovin’ it! ;B
