"In my opinion i think the search is not far enough, considering the fuel available on the plane. Do the maths all the smart guys.... if the plane were to have failure how far can they still fly and if they were hijack how far can they reached and to where. If the radar or any communication system were jammed and the plane is of course where and how far they will reached in the middle of the ocean and some more how far they can drift after they landed on the ocean or crash on the ocean. A plane dont fall from sky like bird. So do the maths and do the search further out. High tech works like drone, but i assume low tech will work better eg: having a waterproof box like pelican box fitted with gps and some food and live vest thrown to the sea so any survivor that found that box MAS authority will be inform once the box is open. Benefit of this concept, 1st it helps the survivor to stay alive and float on sea, 2nd we will have an extra of 239 hopes, considering just the sar team looking for the passenger, turn around the 239 people could possible give us some hope. So where to start. 1st we should see the ocean current if its flowing east to west then we should dump all the boxes from the far east so it will follow the ocean current to flow the box to any survivor that is drafting around. let the ocean and the box lead us to the drafting path. 2nd we could track each of the boxes gps path and from there we could study where possibly the plane will be drafted to.item to be include in the box-gps logging with auto alert once the box been open.-UHF/vhf for communication between nearby boat.-satellite phone if no close range boat near by.-solar panel for recharging the equipment for back up.-waterproof speaker mounted on the box with msg played non stop -calling those passenger.-lighting for the box for mh370 passenger to notice the box at night.-adequate food -life vest-possibly some sensor or radar to detect oil spill or any suspicious plane parts- mic and camera to detect surrounding sound and view of surroundingAs we know human eyes might miss out certain part of the ocean.So Hope this could help."

She would think for a long time and couldn't come up with an answer.
At times, she would remember that her all time favourite is mochi. Always Mochis.
She would remembered the time when my younger brother went to Miri a few years back and bought back a kinda squash packet of mochis because he had been carrying it with both his hands all the time. Needless to say, my mom was touch.
I personally couldn't consume this kuih too much due to indigestion.
So, this Mochis is for mom. Hope you enjoy! The second type on the left hand corner with coated peanuts are my bro's favourite.

I made red velvet cupcake last night, as requested by a colleague of mine. There seems to be a shortage of red food coloring at the store so I bought cherry red instead. My friend was telling me it should be the same. Well, as it turned out, cherry red colour was darker but it was nice as well.
My colleague find the sweetness just right.

Recipe is as below (copy from Ms Browneyedbaker -please do visit her lovely site)
Makes 12 muffins
¾ stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1¼ cups buttermilk
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1. Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Butter or spray the 12 molds in a regular-size muffin pan or fit with paper muffin cups. Place the muffin pan on a baking sheet.
2. Melt the butter and half the chopped chocolate together in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from the heat.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk the buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract together until well combined. Pour the liquid ingredients and the melted butter and chocolate over the dry ingredients and, with the whisk or a rubber spatula, gently but quickly stir to blend. Do not overmix the batter. Stir in the remaining chopped chocolate. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups.4. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a thin knife inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a rack and cool for 5 minutes before carefully removing each muffin from its mold.
Mixed dry ingredients together
Whisk the wet ingredients
Pour the wet ingredients + melted butter + melted chocolate into the big bowl of dry ingredients
1. Her recipe calls for 2/3 cup of sugar. I used 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead. I would advise, don't reduce the sugar!!!
2. I think adding some chocolate chips would make the muffins even more heavenly!!
3. I use 190 degrees C.
4. I do not have buttermilk so i used 1 tbsp of white vinegar plus milk to make a cup. Let is stand for about 5 to 10 mins before using.
