Tag by the crafty Sinta, actually there are many things that made me happy but the tag asked for six so here goes. My husband. He is so cool, so loving and so patient. I am so lucky to have him. I guess if I married somebody else, I might be separated by now, hahaha!!!

My family. I got a perfect family,though my brother sometime thinks of out of this world idea, my sister is sometime hassling, mom is such a nagger and my father is therefore strict, I must say, they make me happy. If they aren't like that I think my life would be so dull. ;)

Work. however I have a love hate relationship with work, I discovered how to love it.

Friends. friends are all crazy so what would you expect. hahahaha

A good breakfast . As I have always telling, I love sandwhich and coffee. These two are my favorite breakfast.

Sufficient sleep. Lately I've assimilate that having enough sleep is the ultimate way of having a good aura for the rest of the day.

So now, I am tagging Bem, Wits, Kumareng Grace, Rico, Javaqueen & Blue Rose


Baked Chicken


We had this for dinner a while ago. although buying roasted or baked chicken is just as easy as 1,2,3, I opted to make my own. You see, those cooked chicken available commercially are usually salty or bland.

So to do this:

In a bowl, mix sugar, vinegar, rosemary and voo, blend well. Pour the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; place the chicken in. Seal bag and and refrigerate chicken for a hour or two.

Now, before you bake the chicken, you have to preheat the oven for 350C drain the chicken. Before placing in a baking dish, rub it with the sugar, cayenne pepper, ground pepper & rosemary.

Bake for a hour and a half

You have to try this! Bon appetit!
