A View on Dapur Wawa

1. Reading dapur wawa is like reading someone’s blog. That is how i would describe Ika Madera’s writing. But an interesting one. There’s some drama some issues some heart moving moments some funny. It’s not your typical flowy novel, but really jumpy like a blog. With the recipes included, not much different from some blogs (like yours truly.. Heheh)

2. Since i had started reading Ika Madera’s blog, i know some of the events are based on real life ones and it’s not much different from my own. These parts really moved me, some to tears. The girl can really write sad parts.

3. I love Wawa, the main character because of our similarities – missing our Dads and splurge on the vanilla when cooking. Heheh.

4. Overall, I think Dapur Wawa could be better. But if you want a really light reading and curious about the recipes, (she tells u lots of tips fpr cooking, and i love the cucur roti), DO pick this book.

5. Now i have to go get Jet Jonah because some says it’s nicer and more interesting. I pray Ika Madera the best and won’t fall into the first attempt was the best trap like what happened to M. Night Shyamalan. Keep on writing (novels and Blog Ika Madera), Ms. Ika.

beAbout a birthday, a recipe, a blog and a book.

Because of a book, now i am all pumped up to:

1. Update this blog, regularly.. hopefully.
2. Bake a carrot cake, one that I haven’t done for a long time.
3. Share a new recipe.

Which, insyaAllah in due time. Till then, here’s a little update:

I had just finished a new book.
Not a birthday present, but coincidentally, it arrived on the eve of my birthday.
Was supposed to receive it wayyy earlier, 3 months ago.
But it never came.
And Allah, He works in mysterious ways.
And here is the book, as a birthday present.

Thank you to Jemari Seni and Ika Madera for taking the time to post it to me, again.

Why is this book special?
Because……………………….

It mentions this blog!
And the writer picked my carrot cake recipe (which i picked from YouTube) of all there are in the whole wide web.. to be printed in this book. (Tapi jadi sedikit berminyak.. which, kalau ikut recipe asal youtube tu mmg ye pon).
Wow, I am that special.. heheheh. (ok, dah berenti berangan.. bukan special pun).

disclaimer di sini: saya tak kenal penulis ni sebelum buku ini. 
saya takde pun pujuk² dia tulis pasal blog saya. 
tak pernah bercakap, apatah lagi berjumpa. 
eh tengok gambar pun tak pernah. 
sbb tu lah rasa special.. bila dia pilih saya.. 
oklah, blog/resipi dalam blog saya.

didAt first, I wasn’t too interested in reading. Just wanted to check out that page where Klynnismail is mentioned.
But I started anyway at page 1. Which wasn’t quite appealing.. and continued and on and on.
And I couldn’t put it down and the last page took me by surprise.
The writer, mentioned my name and thanked me, which I didn’t really do anything.


It was so sweet of you, Ika Madera. I am so touched.
This is definitely a memorable birthday.

Now about the book, lain kalilah review. (Sbb banyak nak cakap).
In short, kadang-kadang rasa tersentuh.
Kalau tak sabar, belilah.. tak mahal langsung. RM18 je!
