Making Karipap Meehoon

I called it Karipap Meehoon :D In fact its actually a Pastil as what most people called in Sabah. Pastil is the same as Karipap (Curry Puff) except the filling is bihun or meehoon instead of curry with potato. It is known as Tausug dish from Phillipines. 

When I was young, I never skipped the chance of having it whenever I went to Muhibbah of Kampung Likas for tuition. I loved how the crunchiness combine with the meehoon inside and finished it off with the sweet and spicy vinegar sauce. Yummy! I thought I was going to try to make the sauce but I couldn't find the recipe given by my ex-high school friend. So, I skipped it this time :(
On last Saturday, I challenged myself to cook meehoon (for the second time I guess?). The last time was 3 years ago and tidak jadi coz my bihun was too soft. My sister-in-law said "Sedap cuma masin". Yes, I used anchovies and added a teaspoon of salt. Teh advised, if we use the anchovies, we just sprinkle a little bit of salt or none at all. Since I had my salty bihun, I decided to make it as a filling by making a Karipap - Pastil.

Pastil or Curry Puff dough is very very very easy to make. I didn't know it was this easy. Just follow the measurement and steps, you won't be disappointed even as a first timer as myself.

Frankly speaking, I loved how the taste turned out. Mr. Husband said, the Karipap dough was delicious made me smiled ear to ear. Unfortunately, he didn't like the idea of having meehoon as the filling. Never mind, as time goes by, he will like it someday... maybe? hehe~ Till next time. See you again Pastil Meehoon! ♥ - Luna Merza

The key of making skirts

I was thinking of creating Blogwalking series for my blog. So, here it is!

I searched on how to make pleated maxi skirt. I found quiet a few. However some of their posts have detailed explanation (sometimes, i don't really like to read long paragraph) and some posts explained in short. Till I found Cheryl post.

She had a very brilliant and well explanation on how to make pleated flare skirt. Most importantly, she made the picture summary which helped me understand the whole making skirt thingy. I just got the key of making any skirt either short, maxi etc:-

top skirt length = waist band length




Today, I plan on buying fabric, so tomorrow I can make one for myself. I love long skirt since long time ago. Easy to wear and to dress. I thought why don't I make one for myself? It could be fun! ♥ - Luna Merza

Nutella Creme Recipe

I was inspired by the banana with peanut as a creme on P-Interest. Since my husband loves Nutella, it gave me the idea of making the Nutella as a creme with Marie biscuit and covered with chocolate on the outside.
It was tasty and delicious as Mr. Husband said. The only drawback was, it's too sweet to our liking. Next time, I should change the baking chocolate formula by adding coco? hehe~ or maybe look for unsweetened chocolate.

I did't have one baking sheet. So, it was kinda hard for me to take off the thing from ceramic plate.

Next thing, I would like to try Dates covered with chocolate my favorite! That's all from #lunamerzakitchen for today :) ♥ - Luna Merza

Should I get Baby Walker?

Image credited to made-in-china.com
I was thinking of getting baby walker for my baby so that she can move around easily since she could sit (with our help still). Till I found this article. 

It says, the baby misses the development journeys such as stretching, rolling, scooting and crawling if they use baby walker. Secondly, I didn't know a baby could feel accomplished when they did something.

Even now, I noticed my baby cries if I take something from her hand that she have been interestingly toying at that moment. Well, I suka kacau her also. I couldn't avoid the fact the she is even cuter when she wants something and crying for it :p  #devilmama


I guess I should wait till my baby starts to walk as to avoid she knocks on something let say if i were busy at the Kitchen with stuffs and to act as a barrier to the wall.


I always love to shop especially for my baby. haha! ♥ - Luna Merza

Fried Banana Cheese - First time cooked

"Have you tried the Sanggar Cheese?", Wana asked me.

Aii, post si Luna ni resepi ja malar. Apa boleh buat nie la hobi baru. Suka masak-masak semenjak tau memasak itu senang. Just perlu rajin ja. hehe~

I didn't know what was Sanggar Cheese. It's actually a fried banana (pisang goreng) topped with cheese and brown sugar. If you guys haven't try it yet, rugi. Hehe~ so better try it. Usually they sell it at RM3 per set.

Whenever I went to the shop near the D'One Mart Labuan, I always said "Sanggar Cinta". Till, one day my sister-in-law cooked one for us. Two words "Delicious and Crunchy!" and satisfied! 

She taught me how to do it and I guess I did it because Lovie said delicious. Well, still in the process of learning on how to cook things. So, please bear with me. hehe~
