Say CHEESE

For those who had known me well enough, y’all might be aware that I’m a dessert lover. I love desserts, I like to bake, and I love making different kind of desserts and experimenting on different recipes. So, as a self-taught home baker for roughly five years, one of my trusting baking partners would be Anchor.

Whenever we heard about Anchor, I’m pretty sure that everyone will think about the famous Anchor Butter. Actually, under the Anchor Brand, they have a full range of dairy products, such as Anchor Butter, Anchor Cream Cheese, Anchor Culinary Cream and also the Anchor Milk. Anchor claims that all of these products are made from fresh milk from free range cows that are fed with grass throughout the year. 

As per my personal experiment and observation, and also personal preference, I LOVE LOVE LOVE these products! These products had successfully differentiated themselves in term of the quality of the products, and they completely change the game of my home bake desserts.

Some of you might have come across the 1st Anchor Say Cheese campaign in 2015 and it was more around the Japanese-inspired desserts & pastries. This year, in conjunction with the 2nd phrase of this campaign and CONNECTING WITH LOVED ONES as the theme of 2016, the new selection of desserts is more European themed and feature delicious sweet breads as well.

What’s better way to spend time with the people we love the most and sweeten the day with some delicious desserts, right? Here's the European style signature creations by Anchor.



Lady Marmalade (L), a sweet bread with an orange cream cheese filling topped with an orange candied peel which is totally edible. Personally I really hate the desserts that contain processed fruits such as durian cake, banana muffin, blueberry cheesecake etc as it kind of gross me out. However, this caramelized orange slice does give me a surprise in the mouth! Big thumb up for this! 

First Love (R), a sweet bread with a brown sugar cream cheese in the center sprinkled with brown sugar for that added crunch, guaranteeing love at first bite as there is really a generous amount of cream cheese filling inside.


Cheezni (B), cream cheese sandwiched between two slices of decadent chocolate brownies and topped chopped walnuts, this is totally the best combination in the world! Feeling blue and down, grab a slice of Cheeznie and recharge your energy!

Almond Rosa (F), a soft classic almond butter sponge cake with a nutty taste, layered with cream cheese. Sometime almond might have this bitter taste and that’s mean the almond is oxidized and go rancid. Since Anchor states that their products are fresh, so the baking ingredients that they use must be fresh as well. So no worries on the bitter-tasted almond, its guarantee fresh!


Customers can now expect these exclusive Anchor’s signature creations at the selected bakeries throughout the country from now until December 2016. The participating bakeries in Miri, Sarawak will be Hot Cross Buns. These bakery partners will whip up the delightful Anchor branded desserts using the original recipes and training provided by Fonterra’s patisserie chefs, with a slight tweak to suit the unique preference of their customers.

It’s great to know that such high quality desserts can be found in the local cake house instead of those atas café. Thank to Anchor Food Professionals for always coming out these amazing ideas and putting customers at the first place.

Dear 2015.

Hello sunshine! It had been a long time since my last update at here! How's everyone doing? How did you spend your last day of 2015 and first day of 2016? I'm here hoping and wishing you'all to have a wonderful ending for 2016 and amazing beginning for 2016! 

And yeah, a brand new year is here, toss to the new beginning and new chapter of my 23rd books on this world! 2015 is a year full with milestones & achievements, struggles & laughter, unconditional loves from family & friends!

"Highlights of 2015"

1. The Internship

I did my 2 months summer internship in Ernst & Young Miri branch. For me, internship is a really good experience for an undergraduate. It give you the a rough idea, although not in a very solid way, but at least some picture of what you are going to do if you choose this pathway as your career in the future. Not to mention the great seniors I’d met and the relationship building process with the potential future employers and so on.





 2. Being 22 years old

Of being 22 years old, birthday no longer involved parties all day long. It is about gather with some close friends and family that are available in Miri, chatting and catching up as all of us are busy with our studies and works. Nowadays attending the parties and enjoying night life had been replaced by spending quality times with those I love. I didn’t mean that parties and night life are bad; we still need them once in a while, just that you gotta adjust the ratio of it.



3. Work Out on Regular Basis

I started to pick up exercise and take it seriously at the end of 2014. From home cardio, to treadmills machine, to adding weights into my routine, I learnt it hard way. People around me constantly telling me that I’m slim enough, working out is not gonna be my things and etc, however, at that point of life, I’m not confident, I’m not happy and constantly stress myself up. Until I started to working out, I stared to feel confident, sweating all out make me happy, although it ruined your freshly wash hair, the struggle to complete the circuit, but trust me, exercise is the best stress reliever you could ever find! Apart from that, the satisfaction when you’re able to upgrade to a heavier weight and the toned body shape is the greatest bonus from working out on regular basis. Although I’m still far away from my fitness goal, but I believe that every single step counts, slowly yet surely!



4. Graduate from University

This is definitely the greatest achievement in year 2015 and the greatest milestone in my past 22 years in this world! After 4 years of struggling to pass the semesters (1 year of foundation study & 3 years of degree course), I’m finally graduate and can officially calling myself as a degree holder. Throughout the years, I met new friends, trying out new things, dealing with new challenges, I fall down and I pick myself up, this is gonna be a real amazing journey and it is definitely the best part of my life. I’m thankful for everything happened within these years, which lead to today’s me.




5. Getting My First Job

Graduated meaning to say is time to step into the adult world. The reality is, being able to graduate from university doesn’t really guarantee you a bright future, but hey, at least it can give you a job with quite a good pay as a fresh graduate. I’m lucky enough to impress one of the potential employers, and that lead me to the life I’m living in now. I wouldn’t it is the best job ever, but it is definitely the most eye opening working experience so far. From work load until the human relationship and personal growth, I have a lot more to learn as time goes.






To conclude, 2015 is definitely a good year with a lot of good memories. Dear 2015, you had been really wonderful, I’m here thank you for everything that happened. Dear 2016, I have a feeling that you’re going to be real awesome! We shall create more wonderful memories and amazing experiences together!




Until next time, xx.

After that, we decided to celebrate by going somewhere to have a decent lunch loll.








********

4 years ago, I was 18 and I was like a headless chicken, wondering what will be the future going to look like, and wham! 4 years just passed and I'm a potential graduate now. Now I'm sitting in front of my laptop and listening to the 22 by Taylor Swift.

Yes, I'm still trying to figure out what kind of life I will want and willing to live with. Pre-graduation anxiety fts. But I know this will be over soon and time will sort it out for me. 

Best of luck for those who are in the last semester like me, and also all the best for those who are going to sit for the final exam!



Loves, xx.
