Relativity

When I came here sometime in the middle of December, it was quite cold. It's not freezing cold but it is definitely colder. Malaysia's temperature is about 28-32C at lower ground. Thus 10-13C can be cold to me. Especially when the wind is blowing.

I learned that different people have different threshold level and susceptibility to coldness, depending where they come from.

One fine breezy evening I wanted to take the children for a walk in the compound. The wind was blowing hard. Considering that it is quite cold so I put on a jacket and put jumper on the kids. It was cold alright. My ears felt stiff.

I saw a lady, presumably she was from Europe or even the States or whichever country much colder than here. She was wearing sleeveless shirt, short skirt and barefooted even. I felt so overdressed.

But I guess I am ok. My next door neighbour whom I assumed is also from another equator country, must be really freezing.

Their kids even wear ski mask and gloves!

Tapi sekarang dah panas!!!

cik ni - sekarang ni dah panas dah. adoi berpeluh nak pi ambik sya

mak lang - tulah syok je tido sejuk2 ni. tak yah pasang air cond

resepi apple crumble

self raising flour - 4oz (120gm)
cooking apples (yang hijau tu granny smith is the best) - 2 biji
sugar - 1oz (30gm) + 1 TBS (on apple)
brown sugar - 1oz (30gm) + 1TBS (on crumble)
butter - 2oz (60gm) (lebih kurang 3 sudu besar)

Apple - peeled, cored and slice then susunkan dalam baking dish. Saya pakai pyrex clear glass sebab clear glass nampak apple tu cantik
then put sugar on apple
untuk crumblenya : miz flour, sugar and brown sugar and add butter.
rub with fingers. Jangan sampai jadi dough pulak. Kasar-kasar aje. nampak macam crumble
place crumble on top of apple
sprinkle brown sugar on top of crumble
bake in preheated oven at 350F (175C) dalam 30-40 minit.

Sedap sekali.

dory - it is indeed delicious. Tell you this the cold weather was really great. reminded me of autumn in the UK.
