THEY WILL ASK thee as to what they should spend on others. Say: "Whatever of your wealth you spend shall [first] be for your parents, and for the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer; and whatever good you do, verily, God has full knowledge thereof." - Al-Baqarah (2:215)

A special recipe for you

Today I'd like to share a special recipe with all of you... it's suitable not only for Hari Raya, but for any occasions, any days throughout the year. Even if you're not a good cook, I'm sure you can do this one if you try...


4 cups love
2 cups loyalty
3 cups forgiveness
1 cup friendship
1 large bunch of smiles
5 spoons hope
2 spoons tenderness
4 quarts faith
1 barrel laughter
3 pints consideration for others

Take love and loyalty,
mix thoroughly with faith
Blend with tenderness,
kindness, and understanding
Add hope, friendship, and
abundant laughter
Top freely with smiles and
consideration for others
Bake with bright sunshine
Serve daily in generous helpings.

[Bradley Tyler]

Now, you all don't forget to try it, okay?

Hi Pi,

Ok I just tried your recipe. Guess what I got? A beautiful mixed fri=uit cake..ha ha! Sedap lah. Try you guys see what you get. Cheers.

Kak Teh said...

Pi Bani, what if I overbaked it? hehe! thanks for sharing.

Pi Bani said...

You didn't get your amah to prepare the ingredients did you?

Pi Bani said...

Kak Teh,
Overbake under the bright sunshine? Well, it becomes hitam. Tapi tak apa, this one however hitam... hitam-hitam sitampuk manggis, walaupun hitam dipandang manis... ;)

Nightwing said...

Helo Pi, hehe i got a Lemon cheesecake...wonder how it became a cheesecake?

Thanks Pi Bani for the recipe...:)

Pi Bani said...

Oh, that's easy. With the large bunch of smiles you put in, you had probably posed a lot more for the camera and said "CHEESE" a lot. So yours became a cheesecake... :)

winniethepooh said...

im still 'squeezing' here and there to get all the amounts..gee..need help, borrow from PiBani kan? :P

Hi&Lo said...

Pi Bani,

Did you forget to add a few drops of tears? hehe

Pi Bani said...

Now you don't go squeezing from all the wrong places, ye hear?! ;)

Pi Bani said...

Ahah... the equivalent to "garam secukup rasa" is missing from the ingredients eh? No, for this recipe the few drops of tears not a necessity... there's already a barrel of laughter and tears will come out when one laughs too much... hehe...

Salam Pi,

Daphne Ling said...

Kak Pi,

Ah...I love ya! Finally, a recipe that does not require an oven! Will try...You come and eat when I finish k? Kalau sakit perut, don't look for me ah...

Pi Bani said...

Mior Azhar,
Dah dekat nak raya ni kena bagi traditional recipe yang mungkin orang dah lupakan... :)

Pi Bani said...

Kalau sakit perut, I look for doctor lah. If I look for you nanti tambah sakit perut only meh... ;)

Zawi said...

I have been cooking for the past 34 yrs. I know very well that your recipe works. Dont worry too much about the proportion of each individual ingredients. Experiment with it till you get the best combination. Trials and tribulations are part of the process.

Pi Bani said...

Thanks for your input. There you go folks, coming from an experienced chef... the recipe works!

Hi Pi

Finally I have time to blog. I've been a little distracted lately.

Good recipe you have here. I tried it and it came out ok... not perfect but served it anyway because that was the best I could do. Despite that, in return, I received 'muffins of joy'. :)

Pi Bani said...

It may not be perfect, but as Zawi mentioned, experiment with it until you get the best combination. In return you will get even more yummylicious muffins of joy!

Have a nice weekend, JT!
