Bebaskan , bebaskan , tak dapat ku pendam lagi........

Dang! I just can't get this song out of my head! And if you're wondering what I'm rambling about, it's that song from the movie "Frozen", except that this is our Malay version, one of the 25 different languages the song "Let It Go" was sung in.

"Bebaskan" by Marsha Milan Londoh

And here's the youtube video my son has been playing all morning

"Let It Go" in 25 languages in 4 minutes

I was inspired to make these cookies. Can you guess what they are?  Hint - they are supposed to be Olaf, the adorable talking snowman from "Frozen". My boys thought they were ghosts before I added those twiggy hands and hair!  Dang! And I was so proud of my attempt!

So how are my bloggy buddies from the other side of the pond keeping?  Still battling the cold in this never ending winter? On the other extreme, we're baking over here in the unrelenting heat. We've been having a hot and dry spell for several weeks now.
Wanna trade places?

Leprechaun Owl Cookies

Owls seem to be the most popular item on pinterest. Knitted, crocheted, sculpted, felted, quilled, cookied and cupcaked, you find adorable images of these nocturnal birds popping up everywhere!
Owl in Malay is "Burung Hantu" which translates as ghost bird and is believed  by the Chinese and Malays to be a symbol of doom and death. When I was little, I used to think that owls ate babies as told by my grandma!
Older and certainly wiser now, I wish to depict these magnificent creatures in a different light - a leprechaun owl cookie for good luck.
Interestingly, I slipped and fell hard on my butt  when I was reaching out for my rolling pin in the overhead kitchen cabinet while making these owlies. Bad luck or sheer coincidence? Ouch! My butt still hurts as I am typing this!
