beef steak with mushroom gravy

tomorrow i would begin my journey as a brace face. I know having a braces is not that simple. I have to comply to certain limitation like not chew gum....or enjoy a crispy fried anchovies or enjoy a slice of steak. Entry today is basically to give a good closure for me to give up meat (but i might eat 'em later when i think i can)
the best steak require minimal marination. in this case i only use salt and blackpepper for the steak. Really simple and it bring out the beefy taste.
Dont forget about vegetable. Eventhough cow eat grass it doesnt mean u get all the benefit of chlorophyl/ phytonutrients per say.
  1. marinate beef with salt and blackpepper
  2. sear them on high heat pan to lock the flavor, give them a crusty outside
  3. bake them in the oven to slowly cook the beef untill tender. keep the juice for gravy later
Mushroom gravy
  1. saute minced onion+ garlic (1 onion: 2 cloves of garlic)
  2. stir in sliced button mushroom.....fresh or canned its your choice
  3. put in water just to give the sauce some volume but dont flood it+ 1tspn dark soy sauce (for coloring)+ ketchup (for a mild tang)
  4. add the beef juice from steak + chicken stock/cube + salt, pepper to taste
  5. to make it look like a sauce stir in (flour+ plain room temp water)...adjust to your liking
  6. let it bubble. if the sauce is shiny that means the starch is cooked
I present you my famous mushroom gravy that made my family go bananas. Ouh yeahh, they have this gravy with the salad (last time i ckecked i made olive oil dressing)
this is the single version...i had this when i realized i cant go to Victoria Station before putting on my braces

Sayangi Anak2 Kecil

Wad paediatrik bagai memberi satu cerminan masyarakat kita sekarang dan juga 20-30 tahun yang mendatang. Ada anak2 yang sakit kerana penyakit tak kurang juga yang sakit kerana disakiti oleh penjaga. Disakiti tidak bermaksud penderaan fizikal semata malah pengabaian/neglect adalah antara satu bentuk penderaan.

justeru peranan ibu bapa SANGAT penting. Melihat ibu bapa melaksana
 parenting ala pukul dan jerit bikin hati aku panas. Walaupun belum punya anak sendiri aku yakin di zaman moden ini anak2 perlu di layan dengan cerdik. Kalau mereka diperbudak, maka perangai mereka juga akan menjadi kebudak-budakan.  

setelah melihat anak2 istimewa di wad, tidak dapat tidak aku terfikir bagaimanakah masa depan mereka. mendidik mereka sudah tentu payah. sekali lagi ibu bapa berperanan menjaga dan membentuk adik beradik lain agar menyayangi si anak istimewa ini kerana kita harus faham ibu bapa tidak akan selamanya di situ. Mudah-mudahan mereka tidak disakiti.
Anak normal namun ibu bapanya?
Anak yang normal pun tidak mampu mengekploitasi potensi baka-nya jika tidak terdidik dengan sepatutnya. Hal menjadi lebih rumit jika anak hilang
 father or mother figure. Komplikasi perpisahan ibu bapa walau terlihat mudah namun memberi impak seumur hidup buat si anak. Setelah menyaksikan banyak komplikasi broken family dan dysfunctional family aku fikir 
  • keputusan berkahwin atau bercerai itu perlu disusuli dengan pelan sepanjang hayat.
  • menjadi ibu bapa itu memerlukan kecerdikan dan kapasiti tertentu

Pak Ajaq Anak

Satu hari anak sulong yang tinggi daya penaakulannya bertanya 
Anak: Ayah, awat kita x cakap inggeris kat umah?. Tengok anak depa sebelah rumah kecik2 dah cakap omputih
Ayah: ajaq anak lagu ni. Kalau hang bagi dia cerdik ja, sudah tentu semua benda dia buleh buat. Kalau ajaq inggeris....dia pandai hak tu jelah.
Anak: waaaa. ayah memang cool!!

Tersilap lingo pulak lepas tgk matlutfi.

I Dont Attack My Own Species

I'm a huge fan of respect. If people are illiterate i can just let it pass provided they know they should repent, shouldnt be stuck up and correct it. But if a senior staff just barge in and said something like "you are wrong. The student will learn from you and keep following your wrongdoing. Isnt it student?" i was startled coz i thought my presence in that room is insignificant. Plus i juse took a photograph with the cute patient in a procedure room. So for being safe i juse show my startled face plus blurred effect to the picture.

Pheww!that was close. I was there to learn from the house officer. She was kind enough to let us be there and assist her. How can i ruin it rite. Plus a senior stuff shouting from the door make me feel a lil' bit off. It would be nice if the senior staff come in and said "you should do like this... If not there will be..." if we can correct people and they follow it for the rest of their life dont you think that God will bless us more.
I know there's no room for mistake but learning from mistake also a way of people becoming great. Eventho a bulb is not a living creature i wud love to use Thomas Edison as an example here. Never get tired with failure.

coz i am the poor

*Live from my bloggerdroid* 1st tyme writing blog from my tab. i miss writing in here. But somehow lately my documentation instinct have became blunt. Maybe the fuel price hike leads to my normal food are getting costly, leads to excessive cash outflow end up as micro deficit in my purse--> have made me become demotivated. I know that i cant buy pretty clothes or fancy eyeliner like before. I cant watch nigella's kitchen and having the thought of cooking for friends coz that nerve was demylienated.

Human life is complicated
I once clerked an old lady happen to live around my neighbourhood. She insist me to pay her a visit coz she was so lonely living alone. we kinda in the same boat. She is a single mother, her children was not really supportive+ they only give her rm150 per month. These days what can u have in your kitchen with that amount of money?
Our subject: 75 year old Malay lady known case of diabetes mellitus, hypertension and ischamic heart disease. Complaint of malaise and shortness of breath 2 days prior to admission.

I hope i could do smthg nice for her but i am quite busy with my own stuff. Due to my poor time management i end up doing mundane things in a bulk while hoping i wont get explode. If i'm going to see her i want to bring something like my famous fishball soup or a milk coz i noticed she dont have milk in her diet (diabetic but only have condensed milk at home). I suppose an old lady need milk to maintain their bone from getting brittle.
*ouh, i just found out how to move this cursor to the bottom page*
There's a famous theory called Maslow's pyramid of need. The base of pyramid represent the physiology needs for human like personal security, health & well being. Top of pyramid represent self-actualization. If we filled the base, our society will become a better society in a sense of they would be happy with their life and start to care for others. Least annoyance perhaps. The past few weeks was full with frustration coz i met many people didnt have a good pyramid base and mine is choppy too.
*in the end the bloggerdroid didnt work and i manually transfer my post to the lappy* see who's messing up with the poor
