Of Books & Resolution

2nd purchase of books in 2010

This week is going to be a long one. Sebelum S.T.R.E.S.S bermula, let's see my latest catch last weekend @Borders Berjaya Times Square.

I bought 4 books for meself.
1. Raising My Voice by Malalai Joya
2. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson & David Oliver Relin
3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
4. 1 Dough, 100 Cookies by Linda Doesser

Diary of a Wimpy Kid reminds me of Dilbert, somehow. If Dilbert is on office thingy, this Wimpy Kid focuses on kids-at-school thingy and the pain of growing up, in humorous manner. I maybe too old for this, frankly but I enjoyed myself after flipping a few pages.

1 Dough, 100 Cookies is a cook book, obviously. It suggests one basic dough and introduces 100 variation to it. Pretty simple for a beginner like me. You see, Kakak has been pestering me into baking cookies these days. Layannn je la.

Anyway, I am still on Mr Singh Investigates, only half way through. I am still sticking to my 2010 resolution (read my 2010 resolution here)where reading is concerned. Cooking-wise, I am a bit off the track already. Monetary? Let's just say, I am living on an allowance from Tebby until my pay day!

Insight on my first book 2010, Hijab Sang Pencinta here.
Insight on my second book 2010, The Adoration of Jenna Fox here.

2 recipes which I have tried and tested in 2010 (and think it's worth sharing) is BBQ Prawns on Skewers (recipe here) and Beef Kebab (recipe here).
