Change of blog author's name

Yes, if you have been following my blog (No one follows my blog~ *tears oozing out*), you might notice the author is no longer Urbanae (WHAT!?)(I'll expecting/day-dreaming people chanting, "Bring back Urbanae!"). No more The Chosen One : Urbanae shoots at ________. But Urbanae, the name has been replaced by HY.

Oh why? No worry, guys and girls. Still the same author here. NO CHANGE OF AUTHOR! Just the change of name. Chinese tradition stating that name is very important to one's whole life. Changing the name can bring revolution, quoted by ex-urbanae or currently HY. No, I was just thought that, not just thought maybe that's the truth, Urbanae is too difficult for everyone. Like people would say like, "What kind of name is this?" "Are you even a human?" Things like that so I decided to change it into HY, which makes not much different (Haha).

Just HY is easier to pronounce and remember (pronounce as H-Y, no longer Er-Ban-Nay.). Well, you are still very welcome to call me as Urbanae, maybe Banny but the best would be HY now.

Just that, a little announcement, a change and some post will be coming soon. Keep watching, reading, stalking this space.

Alexis Bistro's Tiramisu cake

Alexis Bistro has been given a good review by many people, especially on their desserts. Some said they have the best tiramisu cake in town. Oh I gotta give it a try then. Tiramisu, mean take me away, so I just take away the Tiramisu cake from Alexis to my home just to perform a Tiramisu to the cake (Lame~).

Nice packing like I just did some clothing shopping. (Hide yourself, margarine!)

The tiramisu cake looks slightly different from the rest.

The tiramisu cake is sprinkled with pecan, caramelised and contains of cognac. I have to say it is very different from the usual tiramisu cake we ate. But the taste is just average and not as superb as what others said. First of all, I think that the cake is OVERLOADED with caramel pecan on the top. It's super sweet and it's too heavy that it has cover the taste of tiramisu itself. So, it's no longer a tiramisu cake and more like pecan cake. But I like the chocolate bits in the tiramisu layer. I would just say okay and I don't think I will give it a second try. Perhaps different people having different opinion and tastebuds. But this is just not my piece of Tiramisu cake. 

Close up on the pecan top layer.

And it's consider as a premium cake I guess, RM 15 for a piece. Almost forgot about the strawberry sauce come with the Tiramisu cake. It's a very unique combination but if you ate together with the top layer, it might taste a bit extreme sugary. Just couple the sauce with the spongy and tiramisu layer will do. Still a "Nay" for me. But the berries meringue looks promising. I'll try that next time.

Best way to eat Oreo in Chopstick style

Yes, you might think that this is just another silly act or so whatever. But trust me, as an Oreo hardcore die hard fans, having a difficulty in eating Oreo can be a big deal.

Let's get to the main point. Eating Oreo is all about "Twist, Lick and Dunk". Best served with milk which is one of my favourite junkies duo, Oreo and milk, work best together. But there is always one thing troubling me, the moment you dunk that attractive piece of Oreo into the milk. You want to make it a full dunk of Oreo so that the milk can immersed into the entire piece of Oreo biscuit. Problem is, you get your finger stained with milk and get a lil' messy. Yea, who cares as long as I get to eat Oreo with the milk. NO! As a perfectionist (not really), we have to do it in a right way!

I try the fork method, work out pretty well at the beginning but doomed, the Oreo spread apart after I dunk in the milk, I try a few times, same things happened and it's like the biggest disaster ever happened to me. My dear Oreo, witnessing it sinking in the milk and GONE!

I have no choice and did some brainstorming, me and the Oreo's. Yo, why not try the chopsticks!!

Kung fu dunking Oreo in the milk!

The chopstick, it works! First of all, you get the whole Oreo dunked in the milk, phew! Secondly, of course your finger won't stained with milk. Thirdly and the most important part, the creamy filling don't fell off and Oreo is fine as a complete piece immersed with milk. Objectives achieved.

Ya, chopstick might be a bit difficult for foreigner but practice makes perfect. Try to deal it with some kung fu moves (prefer Tai-Chi style, the gentle way) and have some inner peace like Po do. Try a few times and it will works perfectly. You'll be rewarded the perfect moment with Oreo's and milk (as well as big improvement in chopstick skill so that you can eat sushi or maybe chinese noodles better). It worth the try!
