Chocolate cake for Teacher's Day for SRA Al Ummah

Chocolate cake was asked by Ismat for his Teacher's Day tomorrow. Still in d oven, not yet cooked. Now google for the topping (simple topping with coco powder only since coco bar not available).
Now mixed with chocolate ....

Ready for baking

Nuha good girl, masih seperti tugas biasa .... bab jilat lebihan chocolate ni memg kerja dia but this time abangnya Izzat not joining her ... busying main lawan2 ngan Ismat.

Tada ... licin ! senang ummi dia nak basuh. Sungguh "men utilise kan" lebihan chocolate yang melekat kat mixer.

Tuan ku memanaskan diriku dalam oven.

Yes, finally ... fresh from the oven ! Pls ignore lubang2 tu coz tak puas hati try cucuk ngan lidi sekali rasa mcm melekat lagi ... try cucuk2 lagi tu yang byk lubuk kawah2 kat tengah kek tu. Pas ni kita bajukan dia dengan choco. topping aka ganeche.

Tada ... dah pakai baju kilat rainbow lagi ... sila abaikan yang comot2 tu coz belum habis touch up aka "alter" lagi. Dah masuk dlm its box, then will "shave" those yg serabut tu.Chocolate topping + cappuccino.

Benefit of Onion

Perhaps, you too would like to test the theory...

Onion Theory.
(this article is 100% copied from original email, no editing punya !!!)
I have tested the onion cut into 2 and put it in the bowl for overnight when Nuha & me having a bad flu last 2 weeks, but tak de pa pe pun !!!
mesti salah teknik ni ....

A friend of mine told me a story about when he was a kid he was in the hospital & nearly dying. His Italian grandmother came to the hospital & told a family member to go buy her a large onion & a new pair of white cotton socks. She sliced the onion open then put a slice on the bottom of each of his feet & put the white cotton socks on him. In the morning when he awoke they removed the socks. The slices of onion were black & his fever was gone. The following story that someone sent to me might have some truth in it & we are going to try it this winter.

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu.. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said that several years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work.. (And no, she is not in the onion business.)

The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens. We did it last year and we never got the flu.

I contracted pneumonia and needless to say I was very ill...I came across an article that said to cut both ends off an onion put one end on a fork and then place the forked end into an empty jar...placing the jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be black in the morning from the germs...sure enough it happened just like that...the onion was a mess and I began to feel better.

Another thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed around the room saved many from the black plague years ago. They have powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.

(Thanks Roslin for sharing the info.)
