For whatever we went through..never give up!
Life has to go on..I live and I learn.. :)

For Sandwich Lovers!

I dedicate this recipe to Kak Paa & KI whose been craving for my sandwich in such a long time. Haha. Sorry dear..been quite busy [hah alasan lagi]. I had actually made this for Prof L and my classmates. Everyone loves it! Thanked God.

2 in 1 Sandwich

Ingredients for homemade meat patty:

  • 450g lean minced beef or chicken
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 medium onion, half ground, the other half thinly sliced
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Ingredients for mushroom and cheese:

  • 2 tsp cooking oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 8 medium-sized white button mushrooms, sliced ½ cm thick
  • 1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsps minced fresh oregano OR 2 tsps dried oregano
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup chicken stock / can use chicken cubes in warm water
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce
  • 85g sliced Cheddar cheese

Other ingredients:

  • 4-6 slices of multigrain/wholemeal bread
  • Butter
  • Green Salad / Japanese cucumber
  • Slices of tomato

How to do it?

  • In a mixing bowl, combine minced meat, egg, grated onion, garlic, salt and black pepper. Mix well. Shape into thin patties.
  • Heat a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Fry the meat patties till cook on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Put aside.
  • In a large non-stick pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook 2-3 minutes, stir until soft and beginning to brown.
  • Add mushroom, bell pepper, oregano, and pepper. Stir fry and cook until the vegetables are tender about 7 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to low; sprinkle flour over the vegetables and stir to coat.
  • Stir in chicken stock and soy sauce; bring to a simmer.
  • Remove from the heat and lay cheese slices on top of the vegetables. Cover and let stand until cheese is melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  • In a clean saucepan, place slices of wholemeal bread, butter side down. Cook each slice of bread until golden brown. Put aside.
  • Place butter, salad/cucumber, tomato, meat patty and last but not least mushroom and cheese. Serve hot immediately with extra fresh fruit salad.

Enjoy the sandwich with your love ones.. :)

It's a mixed feeling!

In memories of my great grandmother..we miss u..a lot. Al-Fatihah.

Syukur Alhamdulillah..
I'm officially not a medical student anymore.
Should I be happy? Or should I be afraid of the world out there?
Should I be sad being separated from my colleagues?

Should I be anxious..well, being a houseman isn't THAT easy..
For God sake, people do commit suicide due to THAT. ergh, scary.
Please God, let all my specialist be as kind and good in teaching and guide me to become a better doctor in future...amin...

But, whatever it is, I'm bless with all the support I got from my beloved parents..
If they are not here to support and pray for my success, I won't be Dr. Zahraa.
For all the encouraging words when I feel like quiting my studies..
For all the hard works to pay my tuition fees..
For EVERYTHING lah! :)

To my grandparents..
Nenek & Atok - Thank u for taking care of me through my first 3 years of life.
You fed me well! :)
Embah - Been there for me every single step..thank u so much.. :)

I'm thankful to my brothers help..if they aren't home, I won't be able to practise all my physical examination. Thanks bro kasi pinjam your 6 packs! haha. (haa..kembang semangkuk la budak2 ni)

Thanks to my colleagues, who's been there to help me through my studies, Haz & KI & Kak Paa.
They've been my discussion colleagues since Pro-2 exam pun lagi..hehe..
Mereka-reka all sort of crazy mnemonics to memorized..(last2 tak ingat jugak)
For being kind to me, belanja makan (hang habak ja menda apa yg za xmkn lg).
For giving me advice on every single thing..being there when I feel like fail-ing.
I pray that both of you (Haz & Ki) to be married couple SOON! AMIN....
As for you, Kak Paa, of course you'll be married to Shah SOON jugak!

As for my other colleagues;
Abe - :)
Nawal - Thanks gurl.. for everything!!!! muash!!
Kak Sarah - stay a hot singer oke? hehe..
Alin - bile nak karok bawak lagu Beyonce ni beb? hehehe..
Wani - sila lupakan abang bertuala sbelah rumah tu. :P
Kak Lin - lepas ni takleh peluk za ke bila za sedih? huhu..
and to all my friends who supported me through this WAR-ship..5 years of hard.. :')
but we made it colleagues..we made it..!

and not forgotten...
