Khasiat Timun

Berita baik untuk org yang menjaga makanan untuk menguruskan badan! Timun adalah salah satu sayur yang bagus untuk detox disamping mengubati penyakit gastrik atau ulser.

FYI timun adalah sayuran ‘sejuk’ yang sangat bermanfaat terutamanya pada musim panas. Di negara barat, timun disajikan pada musim panas dengan pelbagai cara untuk membantu menyejukkan badan. Since Malaysia ada musim summer and spring for the entire year, we should enjoy this vegetable yang sangat mudah didapati di market or pasaraya dengan harga yang sangat berpatutan.

Timun boleh dinikmati dalam pelbagai cara antaranya dimakan mentah (ulam), dibuat jus, jeruk, atau ditambah kedalam masakan. Untuk insan yang mudah dehydrate (like me) cucumber sangat bermanfaat untuk menyejuk dan membekalkan air di dalam badan. Bila badan mengandungi air yang cukup, ia akan diserlahkan dengan organ kulit. Tambahan pula timun kaya dengan vitamin C. This will helps untuk menjadikan kulit glowing dan nampak segar dan sihat sentiasa. For me, I love to enjoy timun raw je sebab rangup. I am able to finish the entire cucumber untuk sekali hidangan. Yummy! Tapi tak pernah pulak try jus timun.

Untuk rawatan dalaman, timun juga kaya dengan fiber. Fiber ni adalah serat. Ia sangat membantu penghadaman terutamanya serat yang terkandung pada biji timun.

Oleh kerana timun adalah agen penyejuk yang bagus kerana mengandungi potassium, magnesium dan fiber yang tinggi, ia dapat mengurangkan risiko dan merawat penyakit tekanan darah tinggi.

Selain drpd kegunaan/rawatan dalaman, timun sangat terkenal untuk merawat sembap, lebam dan garis2 halus pada mata. Timun perlu dihiris nipis dan dibiarkan pada kelopak mata selama 5-10minit. Timun juga dapat merawat kulit yang panas (radang) akibat terlalu terdedah kepada cahaya matahari.

Tips membeli timun

  • Kulit timun mestilah berwarna hijau –> timun muda. baru rangup.
  • Pilih timun bersaiz tidak terlalu besar (tebal). Ini kerana timun yang tidak tebal mempunyai biji yang kecil dan mudah ditelan.

 

Tips menyimpan timun

  • Simpan timun didalam peti sejuk.
  • Lebihan timun yang belum digunakan boleh disimpan semula ke dalam peti sejuk. Pastikan timun disimpan didalam plastik yang diikat rapi kemudian disimpan didalam sealed container (bekas tertutup). Tapi seelok2nya guna lebihan timun tersebut hanya dalam jangka masa 1-2 hari selepas disimpan.

 

Tips menghidang timun

  • kulit timun sememangnya kaya dengan khasiat. Tetapi, pastikan kulit timun tersebut tidak tercemar dengan racun atau wax. Kalau ragu2… better peel je kulit timun tu.
  • hidangkan sejuk2. jangan biarkan terlalu lama diluar peti ais. baru la rangup while enjoying it.

Stuck! di petrol station

Once upon a time, I sent my father to his office. During my way back home, I stopped by at a petrol station to topup my Touch n Go. When I want to continue my journey, my car won’t start. There is no spark to starts the engine. I keep on trying to start, lock and unlock the car, auto start and still no good response from the engine. I couldn’t reach my father through phone. Then I contacted my mother to get my father’s office number and told her my situation. She said she will send it to me. Then she called again…
Mother: Adik, mak dah sent number ayah. Tp cuba adik check kat gear tu. Ntah2 kat gear reverse.
Me: *terlopong* Ok. sat nak check.
SHE IS RIGHT! The current gear is N. This is the reason for the car refused to start.
=.=’

B0339

P.s.: I did the call inside the convenient store. Not inside my car.

Woman, Mother, Working-Mother

Entry kali ini adalah untuk menghargai kaum wanita. No offense untuk lelaki.

The story starts like this. It has been a long time since I was living separately with my parents. Now, I have moved into their house and staying with them. I am enjoying my own ‘holiday’ here. Recently, I have spent more time to do woman’s things. WHOPS! not that before this I act as a man. In other words,  for about 6 years I had practiced less responsibility as a woman such as cleaning, tiding, laundering and etc. Now, I am trying my best to change that unpleased habit day by day. It’s my bad for not being able to allocate a part of my 24 hours to do these things before.

What makes me ‘lazy’?

I was unable to set my mind that cleaning and housekeeping is a part of daily routine. I was always give up when I see the place that I have cleaned before has turned messy and dusty just a day after the cleaning activity. Since I was working and studying, I was only able to do the housekeeping once a week.

Change happens…

I have finished my study and job. While having my own sweet time, I have decided to change my habit. My age is going to turn into 23 years old. I need to change my attitude and habit. Just to be a better person. I do cleaning, housekeeping, cooking, and laundering every single day. Believe me, IT’S REALLY TIRING! I do really respect a woman that is able to go to work and then managing the house without hiring a maid. The ‘job’ is much more tough when she has kids (we skip this one). ;)

Here is my daily routine:
Wake up for Subuh prayer – kemas tilam – basuh baju (1st round) – lap habuk (part 1) – sidai baju – sweep the floor – cooking – eating – lap habuk (part 2) – basuh baju (2nd round) – sweep the floor – sidai baju (2nd round) – lipat baju – exercise

Sometimes I have to go out to settle the bill and buy some goods.

All of these things need to be done daily to ensure the house is looking good and comfortable to stay.
I did all that activities during day time. Can you imagine for a woman who has to go to work in the office and do all of those things when they get back home? It is really tiring but some womans managed to do that! Bravo woman!

Dear working-mother, if you manage to do all of those routines, you can be called as a superwoman! I do really respect it! Kagum2.

Although the routine is tiring, I am willing to keep on doing it because I achieved one thing, satisfaction feeling! I feels very happy when I see my mother’s smiling face when she went back from work and see the house is clean and tidy.

Rest N Go by GINTELL

A few days ago, I went out with my mother. As usual, tak terasa masa dah dekat 3-4jam berjalan dalam shopping mall. Masa OTW ke kereta, my mother has stopped at a kiosk. While she is buying some snacks, I saw and tried this massage chair located in front of the shop. Seperti orang mengantuk disorongkan bantal, rasa nikmat sangat bila kene urut dengan kerusi ni. Both kaki and pinggang sangat lenguh sebab berjalan lama sangat td.

B0318

RM 1 = 3 minit
RM 5 = 15 minit
Terima kasih GINTELL.

My Brother Won A Tupperware Set

One night, my brother has attended a Gala night organized by his company. This is a yearly event where all of the staffs are dress-up to impress themselves and others. The dinner is merrier with the lucky draw session. One of the lucky persons is my brother. He won a Square Round Tupperware gift set.

B0320

The most beautiful thing is without any doubt, he has ‘forwarded’ it to our mother. Mak pun apa lagi, happy sangat la.

 B0319

To whoever who wrapped the ribbon around the box, I love it. It’s really beautiful!

Mematuhi Had Laju dalam Kampus

 

B031135km/j

Di samping mematuhi had laju dalam kampus, penggunaan petrol juga dapat dijimatkan.

p.s: Picture ni zaman tinggal dalam kampus.

Sirih Pulang ke Ganggang

Moving back – Hijrah – Pindah – Pulang ke tempat asal

Goodbye my university

Goodbye my lab

Goodbye my friends

Goodbye my lecturers

Goodbye my students

Goodbye my room

Goodbye peniaga2 makanan yang sedap2

Goodbye makanan yang sedap2

Setelah lebih kurang 6 years tinggal disini mencari ilmu dan rezeki, kini tibalah masanya untuk ku pulang kembali ke pangkuan keluarga.

Pada Khamis malam yang lepas, ku angkat segala barang2 untuk di load ke dalam kereta sambil dibantu oleh Kak Imah (mekaseh banyak la kak imah…). Esok pagi dah nak blk hometown dah.

Then pada hari jumaat pagi yang hening itu, cuaca seakan2 mengerti bahawa I am going to say goodbye. Sebelom balik, I went to my college to say goodbye to the dean, support staffs and a few lecturers. Since malam tadi dah load barang dalam kereta, I went to the office dengan barang yang sepenuh ni. Kat ruang storage belakang tu jangan cakap la… sangat padat!

B0332

B0334

I went back with my brother. He drives the car. Dalam perjalanan balik tu, the traffic flow was very fine. Tiba2 stuck kat tgh highway sebelom sampai ke R&R Tapah.

B0335

Wonder jugak why kan. Apa yang sangat tak best bila jam ni is when you need to go the toilet.

(T__T)

 B0336

Rupa2nya ada accident. Van terbalik.

B0337

Then kami pon meneruskan perjalanan dengan selesa melalui lebuh raya PLUS. When we are about to arrive to our destination, another traffic jam happened. It’s 5pm. Orang keluar office.

This time…

B0338

MINYAK NAK HABIS!!!!

we turned-off the air-cond and less press minyak. Mapping2 the nearest petrol station, akhirnya sampai jugak di stesen minyak. heuh. leganya rasa. Alhamdulillah. Lepas tu dalam 10 minutes sampai la kat rumah. Dah sampai tu nak angkat barang2… then my brother terkejut bila tengok kat boot kereta. He said no wonder la walaupon speed tp rasa lambat ja moving.

HeHeHe

Tempe Goreng di Nims Little Island

Comel je nama kedai ni kan. I used to post a review on this menu before (Dinner with Tempe-Girls). Since I am moving back to my hometown, me and my tempe-girls are planned to have our final dinner together here. Setelah di recommended by these girls… i have decided to try it.
Here is the tempe goreng

B0331
Time makan, masing2 tried to apply reverse-engineering method to figure out the recipe. I forgot to mention that 4 of us order menu makanan yang sama.
I have made a HUGE mistake by having tempe with Ice blended milo


B0329
Both sangat sedap! Tapi both kan creamy and makes me cepat kenyang. tempe tu tak habis. terpaksa tapau.
Another menu air yang patut dicuba di sini adalah this SODA GEMBIRA


B0330
Soda that is served with rose syrup, vanilla ice cream, and ice.

My Final Lab Session

B0328

This semester, I feel very honored to be trusted to teach an elective subject (lab) offered for Final year students in the university I enrolled. Since this is an elective subjects, I have only 14 number of students. All of them are very hardworking and never stop doing their best to catch-up with the syllabus.

Dear students, I love your independent attitude. This is what a final year student should have. I believe those lessons, and assessments that you have experienced/gathered from your previous lecturers and subjects taken have trained you to be a part of what you are (now).

I am wishing ALL THE BEST on your future career. InshaAllah… kalau dah rezeki tu, tak kemana.

Samsung Galaxy Tab on Hand

 B0317

Jakun! I admit it. It was my first time having this gadget on my hand (before this penah pegang iPad, not samsung)… so fair enough la kan for me to act that way. :P

B0316

My review on this gadget:
  • I love it sebab guna Android platform
  • Bateri tahan lama
  • Camera good + additional application to make it better
  • Ada secondary camera (bahagian hadapan) and flash (primary camera)
  • Games (as usual)
  • Video streaming (sangat berguna bila traffic conjunction)
Owh ya.. this isn’t mine. It is belongs to my brother. Despite coming for a visit, he came on that day to ‘share’ the happiness.

Lemang Kebab Stall di Food Court Rasa Alamanda

This stall is introduced by Cik Alia. She said kebab served here tastes unique and yummy. We went there to have our dinner together since this is the final week I’m staying here.

B0312

B0313

This is my plate. Some calamari and ‘powed-alia’s-chicken-kebab’.

Mhm… this kebab tastes different from ordinary pasar malam’s kebab (my TOP favorite especially during Ramadhan's bazaar) which typically use roti pita or roti bun panjang tu. This is more like K*C’s Twister – the one that has popcorn chic, vege and wrapped by roti capati then baked.

B0314

More yummy bila makan menggunakan tangan - she said. :)

Durian Gemok2

Hari ni hari Jumaat. Dah lama ku nantikan hari ni untuk beli durian kat pasar malam Putrajaya. Since malas nk beramai2 di pasar malam tu, I went there quite early. 3 PM sudah gerak g sana. So mmg tak ramai la. Some of peniaga pon tengah setup barang2 meniaga. Pusing2… jumpe la 1 gerai durian. Dengan hati yang girang sebab dah lama ngidam… ku beli 2 bijik. Lepas tu terus menuju ke rumah sambil memandu dengan mematuhi had laju sehingga kan bau durian yang diletakkan di dalam kotak mineral water telah melebar sayapnya kebahagian cabin kete. Perut pon berlagu Hip Hop craving nak makan durian. I believe masa tap ID kat gate depan tu mesti pak guard yang jaga tu pon tergoda dengan penangan bau durian ni. Bila dah sampai rumah… dengan cepatnya durian diseludup masuk dan dikopek 1 persatu.
 B0310

Ni buah yang pertama. Buah yang kedua pon gemok2 mcm ni jugak. Sebiji ada 5-6 ulas je. Tapi setiap ulas tu gemok. Patut la berat ko masa timbang nak beli td berat bangat! Berpeluh aku nk byr.

TIPS untuk membeli durian:

  1. Beli durian hanya bila ada pesaing berniaga di kawasan yang sama
  2. Try negotiate harga
  3. Pilih sendiri buah yang mana yang kita nak.
  4. Kalau dorg yang pilih, check dulu kulit dia sama ada ok ke tak or ada lubang ke x. jangan tengok isi je.
  5. Mintak peniaga tolong belah siap2 kat bawah buah tu supaya senang untuk dikopek nanti
TIPS untuk hilangkan bau durian

  1. Letakkan sekeping roti putih pada tempat yang berbau durian tu (dalam cabin or boot kete or dalam rumah). Roti ni akan menyerap bau durian tu.
  2. Untuk bau mulut, gosok gigi
  3. Untuk bau nafas, makan roti putih beberapa keping.

Lilitan Selendang Style Hana Tajima

Semalam tiba2 teringin sangat nk belajar lilit selendang style Hana Tajima <—bukan inspired anymore. Then I remembered I used to saw her video tutorial pasal cara nak lilit selendang on YouTube. Cari dan terus mencari… baru jumpe video that is made by her (bukan orang lain yea). Bila dah tengok video tu… baru tau. Senang sangat!


Belajar daripada kesilapan

Beberapa cubaan telah dilakukan dengan menggunakan different jenis kain selendang. Conclusion… Orang cakap… jangan lawan cakap cikgu. Bila cikgu cakap guna A, sila ikut guna A. Jangan degil. Beberapa cubaan telah gagal sebab Hana Tajima ckp kena guna kain pashmina, jangan guna selendang kain lembut. Oleh kerana ‘bahan2’ yang ada hanyalah selendang lembut (rasanya kain jojet), cubaan telah dilakukan ke atas selendang2 tersebut. Kesemuanya telah gagal. Finally I have found a selendang kain yang tebal sket but yet still lembut. So dengan selendang tu la yang jadi <—better la drpd kain jojet tu. Get the selendang and inner tudung from Selendang Hijab Online (SHOL). Mari mulakan tutorial!

*drum roll*

Langkah 1:
Letak selendang atas kepala. Adjust bagi panjang sebelah.


Langkah 2:
Pinkan dibahagian belakang-tepi kepala disebelah kiri dan kanan.

T0006-2

Bila both dah pin, akan kelihatan macam ni. Biarkan both sides lepas ke belakang.

T0006-3

Langkah 3:
Ni additional step utk kemasan melindungi bahagian leher dan telinga. Tarik bahagian dalam side yang pendek tu. Pin kan pada anak tudung.

T0006-3ii

Langkah 4:
Ambil bahagian dalam side yang panjang tadi. Lilit bahagian leher. this step is to twist bahagian dalam ke luar to get kembung kat tepi muka tu.


Langkah 5:
Kemaskan lilitan dan letakkan atas bahu
T0006-5

Langkah 6:
Kemaskan tepi tudung bahagian kiri and kanan dengan meletakkan pin. <—biar gelembung tu statik.


Dah siap

This will looks good kalu guna selendang pashmina tu.

PROMO: Please visits Selendang Hijab Online (SHOL) for more selendang dan inner tudung.

Selamat mencuba!
