Hey hey!

Wowoow, Father’s Day is JUST this weekend and it’s the season for World Cup. It’s  all about the men this month ey ? Well, because it’s Father’s Day and because gadgets and electronic or ‘manly’ items are kinda mediocre andd normal, I’ve decided to share an idea on how to make your own gift, a DIY / homemade gift!

The first thing that came to my mind, are roasted nuts. They are friendly and can be placed anywhere, in the office, in front of the TV ? It is also a healthier option compared to chips and crackers, don’t you think so ?

Also, since the World Cup airs in midnight here in Malaysia, these can be little snacks if anyone is hungry at 3am!! Better than a packet of instant noodle too! So I decided to mix 3 nuts, I wanted to mix almond, pecan and walnuts… I thought I had raw walnuts at home, but nope. I had peanuts. So oh well, let’s then make a small batch of this with all 3 nuts.
