KakNgah's Short Update On What's Happening

   I am most definitely sorry for the lack of updates. It's the month of Ramadhan, and what I've been doing mostly for the past three weeks was to visit other blogs, leave some comments, and that's all. Here's what I've been doing for the last few weeks:

1. Started going for driving lessons
    I just got my L and my first real lesson is on Wednesday. My teacher wanted to start on Sunday, but since I had to come to KL (yep, still here, going back tomorrow) I asked for it to be postponed. I can't wait.

2. Been busy baking... and baking... and baking...
    I've always loved baking, but have never really been that good at it. Ingredients are always expensive too, so...When I came back from Melaka, I started with one recipe, then followed it with another, and another... and I loved it so much I decided to start a new project, which I won't talk about just yet because I'm not ready. Maybe sometime in the future. Here are some of the things I made (picture quality's not very good, sorry. I only had a phone camera to take photos with):

Classic Victoria Sponge

Banana Brownies

Peanut butter Brownies

Butterbeer blondies

Chocolate Chip Whoopsie (Whoopie) Pies

Congo Bars a.k.a. Chocolate Chip Blondies

Batik Cake

Lemon Chiffon Pie

3. Been enjoying Ramadhan
    I do not if  I have been more productive during this beautiful month compared to the last. I hope I have. May Allah guide me.

4. Went to IIUM
    I'm in KL at the moment (going back tomorrow). I'm crashing at KakYing's place. Today I went to visit IIUM (or UIA as some people know them), but I didn't have a lot of time to visit all my favourite spots. Besides without the students the place seemed a little empty. But peaceful, really peaceful. I wish I had had more time to spend there, but I managed to snap a few pics with the camera I borrowed from KakYong, hehe... wish I had had time to take more though.

They're building some new buildings at the Putra/Gombak LRT Station.
Probably for parking.

The new student mall or something, situated in front of Kyros.
Booths for students interested in generating some extra income

Corridor leading to lecturers' offices.
Familiar stepping ground for me hehe.

The ever faithful elevator at INSTED.

The new Azman Hashim complex.
All the banks operate in this building now- Bank Islam, Ambank and Bank Muamalat.

They also have signboards put up everywhere now! Most convenient.

The beautiful IIUM mosque... majestic looking and of course my photo does no cre
dit to it
5. Planning on buying a car
    Though it'll be some time until I get my license, I'm already planning to buy a car since Insya-Allah if all goes well I'll start working soon. I've fallen in love with the new Myvi, hehe, and it also helps that they have one in purple! Now that I've started becoming interested in cars, I can't help visiting this site again and again... haha.
My dream car, hehe

   That's all for now. Happy Ramadhan!

Just found your blog, very nice. Was happly reading along about all of the baking and looking at the yummy pictures and started to laugh out loud when I saw one of the chip cookies smiling back at me! I made the dog jump but it was a good way to end the day!

Dhan Starr: Hey, thanks! I'm glad I helped made your day (and that of your dog's too, maybe? Hehe) Thanks for stopping by!
