Trying It Out For Size - For My New Home

If I look happy, it's because I am. I had just had my piano lesson and on the way out just had to try out this baby grand piano.

The experience of playing with the baby grand was wonderful as the sound appears to surround you.

I defiantly will buy one for my new home which I am having built and will be ready in approx 2 years, Such a long time i know but it will all be worth it in the end.

Right now I play on a piano keyboard (digital) and while it's ok I am looking forward to getting a piano.

OK well its practice time. byeeeeeeeeeee.

Gimmie Your Dough - I Give You Some Bread

Just made this loaf and today I used some whole wheat floor I got from the Bakers zone in Johor Bahru.

I love this store, but BE WARNED, they have such choice you can not help but buy. I went in to get floor came out with bread tins home made jams, baking ingredients, butter, chocolate and big bags of mixed herbs, and oregano my favorite for my pasta dishes.

To Be honest when I first came to JB it was nightmare to find ingredients i required to make my breads and cakes, pies etc. Gourmet Foods
So when Bakers Zone opened I was so happy. My next cake is an apple cake with oats toppings different but should be nice.

todays Bread is mix of two parts white organic bread flour one part whole wheat flour, salt, olive oil, sugar yeast and water thats it just mix, kneed, prove then kneed again shape and place into greased tins. takes no time at all its the proving and raising that take up the time.

but I am sure you will agree being able to eat fresh bread every day like the one above is all part of living the good life in Johor Bahru Malaysia.

I shall make some home made pate to spread on with it and some nice cheddar cheese, pickle onions some olives and gurkins, little salad and you have the perfect lunch time meal, weekend of course it goes with white wine chilled and ready to partake. Cheers....
Loaf so big fill the oven

got this to spread onto my home made Cheesecake

spread for my scones 

this is great flour but must be kept in Fridge.. Tip they gave me.

Xbox Sold, So Many Enquiries But Not In Johor Bahru

This morning got sms asking if the xbox was still for sale, which was a surprise as i had put the ad in 60 odd days ago and had forgotten about it really, Well this time it was a nice man living in JB who came to view it right away.

He got it for his Son who I am sure will really enjoy it, much better than being at my home not being appreciated anymore.

When I lived in the UK I used to sell lots of items on Ebay, but Ebay malaysia has not got as many items or categories I should say.

I furnished my home in the UK with wonderful antiques furnishings I found on ebay.

Then when it was time for a change I would resell on Ebay, Recycling is the way to go on this little planet of ours.

I bought a car in the UK from ebay a ford Escort got it around 200pounds it was 10 years old and only thing wrong was exhaust falling off, so one New exhaust and four new tyres, I always put new tyres on any car i buy because when you think of it, only a little bit of rubber touches the road on each tyre so it pays to make sure you have the best tyres and I usually go for the michelin pilot series, Now on my car i got the pilot3 sport tyres which are great for malaysia and its rainy days.

I feel so safe, anyway back to the ford car, it turned out to be one the best reliable cars i ever had and i had about 20 over the years, I get bored and like to change every year or two at least.

It was a very good car and fuel usage was so good at around 38mph , good price for tax and insurance, when i came over to malaysia I sold it to a friend for same price i paid and he still uses it every day and that was 6 years ago - So you can find some great bargains online,

The secret is patience, Don't rush into the first one you see, take your time do your research, Then make your offer, unless its fixed price then pay the asking price.

Now in Malaysia I use Adpost, mysimplyfied ads, OXL all are good but for me adpost and oxl are fastest, mysimplyfied is so slow to load i get board.

So give it ago if you have items you no longer use, put them up for sale. I am glad I did.
