Boiling eggs can be tricky because you don't find out whether you've done it correctly until you cut open the end product. Since the white and yolk cook at different temperatures, it can be difficult to get a solid yolk without an overcooked, rubbery white, or a tender, solid white without a liquidy, raw yolk. The underlying process is more complicated than most people suspect, with a wide variety of factors influencing how the finished egg turns out, but the following steps will help you get the results you're looking for.
1. Choose eggs based on the desired result. Fresh eggs are less prone to cracking because they have a low pH in the white, causing it to adhere to the inner shell membrane, essentially "sealing" it together. But, this also makes fresh eggs more difficult to peel. Eggs which have been refrigerated for several days have higher pH and are more likely to crack, but they're easier to peel. Instead of waiting for fresh eggs to get old, you can add a teaspoon of baking soda to a quart of water when cooking (which raises the pH and reduces adhering) but it might make the eggs taste slightly more sulfuric. Or, just cook fresh eggs a little longer and allow the white to firm up in fridge before peeling. If you're going to be cutting the boiled eggs in half, you might want to use the freshest eggs you can find, since they tend to have a more centered yolk and less likelihood of greening.
2. Lay the eggs gently in an empty pot. Some sources recommend making a shallow hole with a pin at the flatter end so that it'll let the expanding air escape thus reducing the chance of cracking but studies have shown this isn't a reliable technique. Adding salt will make the eggs easy to peel. Salt or vinegar to the water may help the proteins in the white coagulate faster so any cracks in the shell quickly get plugged.
3. Cover the eggs with about 1" or 2.5cm of salty water. If the water is cold, the eggs will take longer to cook. If the water is hot, though, you may risk the water getting too hot too early and overcooking the eggs (i.e. exposing the eggs to boiling temperature for too long).
- French oeuf a la coque "from the shell" - cooked 2-3 minutes; remains semi-liquid throughout.
- Coddled or "soft-boiled" eggs - cooked 3-5 minutes; barely solid outer white; milky inner white; warm yolk; spooned from shell
- Mollet eggs - 5-6 minutes; semi-liquid yolk; outer white is firm enough for shell to be peeled
- Hard-boiled eggs - 10-15 minutes; 10 minutes for dark, yellow, moist and somewhat pasty yolk; 15 minutes for light yellow, dry, and granular yolk
5. Cool the eggs. To stop the cooking process, drain the hot water and replace with cold water. Add some ice cubes to the water and wait until the eggs are cool enough to peel and/or serve.
need a demonstration? here you go, hehehe~

Malaysia and the stolen Indonesian culture By MARIO RUSTAN (Jakarta Post)
Thursday September 10, 2009
AT FIRST I thought it was a slow news day. When a news programme was broadcasting an item titled “Indonesian culture robbed by Malaysia”, I watched it in mute mode, admiring scenes of Chinese girls eating laksa and going shopping, in another Malaysia tourism video.
The next day, the stealing claim seemed justified. The stolen culture in question was the Pendet dance from Bali, which in no way would reach Malaysia through shared Malayan culture or through Javanese and Bugis migrants.
Until today, voices condemning Malaysia are still being aired, with professors and political scientists saying Malaysia has no indigenous culture and thus has some sort of inferiority complex, and thus is stealing Indonesian culture.
Furthermore, many learned Indonesians sneer at Malaysia’s tourism slogan, “Truly Asia”, saying that it’s nonsense and proves that Malaysia has no true identity.This newspaper, however, pointed out that “Truly Asia” means that Malaysia is a one-stop destination for tourists wishing to see Southeast Asian, Chinese and Indian cultures.
Some Indonesian condemners may still be unaware of Malaysia’s multiple-ethnicities, while others may deliberately ignore it and feel more comfortable with the view that Malaysia is a Malay nation.
As for the Pendet case, it turns out the video was made by a private production house that just copied and pasted several fun tourism images, without any intention of malice.
I found proof about the “Truly Asia” slogan on my arrival at Kuala Lumpur: The taxi got lost and I couldn’t get through to my friend’s phone – at sunrise on an empty suburban road. I tried to ask for directions from several strangers.The first one were an elderly Chinese couple who didn’t speak English or Malay.The second were a couple of Indian garbage men who spoke broken English. The Malay taxi driver preferred to talk in English as our Malay dialects were incomprehensible to each other.Finally he got the address from a Malay youth.
I found the house in time for breakfast, ready to feast on wonderful Malaysian food, such as laksa and nasi lemak, and drinks like teh tarik and susu bandung.Many Indonesians in Malaysia must consume an unfunny old joke. In the courtyard before the Petronas Tower one night, my host said we should avoid the dark spots otherwise we could be robbed by “your countrymen”.
This newspaper had received some complaints from Malaysians that said the Indonesian media and people never talked about the violent crimes carried out by Indonesians in Malaysia.We retaliated by pointing out that Noordin Mohammad Top is a Malaysian national, and some have even gone so far to suggest that he was planted by the Malaysian government to ruin the Indonesian tourism industry.In fact, there is no culture war and no tourism war between Malaysia and Indonesia.
Malaysia’s biggest rival in attracting tourists is Singapore, and thus Malaysia’s promos offer similar things that Singapore offers – vibrant nightlife, glorious food, Formula 1 racing and great shopping experiences.Do our tourism promos cover those things? Malaysians count Singapore as their dreadful rival, and hardly think of Indonesia, which is on a different class.
Indonesia’s hatred for Malaysia has been around since the 1960s, probably earlier. Malaysia is the political opposite of Indonesia. It had good relations with its British coloniser, it is a federation, a parliamentary monarchy, and it is never interested in socialism.After peace returned with the creation of the Asean bloc, both governments tried to convince the people that Indonesians and Malaysians were brothers of the same stock.This effort held until the 21st century, when Malaysian economic progress left Indonesian behind, and more learned Indonesians are embracing Sukarno-style zero-sum nationalism.
The real story is still the same after 40 years – distract one’s woes by creating and hating a foreign enemy.As often stressed by other writers, some cultural items that we have claimed were “robbed” by Malaysia are not exclusively Indonesian.
Batik is a common throughout Southeast Asia, and a top batik brand wrote in its coffee table book that batik had been influenced for centuries by Chinese, Indian, Arabic, European and Japanese designs. Musical instruments like the angklung and gamelan are also common throughout South East Asia.Wayang is hardly Indonesian – the hide puppets originated from mainland South East Asia, and there are similar storytelling arts in China, Japan and Europe.
When Miss Indonesia dressed as Srikandi, she dressed as a Hindu – and Indian – character still revered religiously in India and Malaysia.
As for the disputed isles, I think it’s ridiculous if white collar men in Jakarta could get upset reading the news about Ambalat, and yet the next minute they are making backstabbing remarks about fellow Indonesians from outside Java.
Disputed territories are hardly unique – Japanese and Koreans fight over a rock and on the naming of the sea between their nation and Cambodia had an anti-Thai riot because of a temple located nearby the modern borderlines.
We claim Malaysia has an inferiority complex, and yet the problem is our own. Of course, Malaysia is guilty of ignorance and laziness in making its tourism commercials, but it’s pointless and confusing to dwell on one objectionable frame and continue to fuss about it.We accuse Malaysia of disrespecting us because deep inside we feel that our supposed “brother” has left us behind with its decent standard of living, global brands (eg Air Asia, Maxis, Petronas and Michelle Yeoh) and good investment reputation.
Russians have had similar problems with former USSR states, and Chinese netizens have grudges with the Japanese and Americans.In all three cases, past history is always offered for justification of hatred, as we’re closing in to 2010. But Malaysia is also having similar internal strife.
As its Chinese and Indian populations become more politically involved, harassment and foul plays also increase.Malaysian politicians have become increasingly comical and ridiculous in acting as defenders of Muslims and Malays, and its political and religious freedoms are far below Indonesia.Flying the Indonesian flag on your product and wallpaper, while condemning Malaysia on your Twitter and T-shirt, won’t solve anything.
Malaysia never thinks about those tourism commercials and they know that Noordin Mohammad Top is a Malaysian hiding in Indonesia because he couldn’t survive in Malaysia. We can accept that the crime rate in Indonesia is high – so it makes sense that many Indonesians in Malaysia are involved in violent crimes.
If you want more tourists to visit Indonesia, stop sending the message that you dislike foreigners. If you want Pertamina to become a global brand like Petronas, and to have Formula One held in Indonesia, study and follow their steps. If you find an item on the Internet demeaning Indonesia, ignore it and move on with your own priorities.
Stop getting so angry about trivial things so easily when we have potential to do great things for ourselves.
akhirnya, ada juga mereka yang pandai & boleh berfikir! ;D

but we both know sometimes it's better to go.
Somehow I know we'll meet again,
not sure quite where and I don't know just when you're in my heart,
so until then, smile,
don't want to cry saying goodbye."

Rakyat Malaysia Di Jakarta Diancam Dengan Buluh Runcing
JAKARTA, 8 Sept (Bernama) -- Jabatan Penuntut Malaysia di sini Selasa ini menasihati semua pelajar Malaysia di seluruh Indonesia supaya sentiasa berhati-hati memandangkan kebencian segelintir rakyat negara itu yang semakin memuncak berikutan penyebaran pelbagai fitnah oleh media massanya kebelakangan ini.Jabatan itu telah menghantar khidmat pesanan ringkas (SMS) bagi menasihati semua pelajar Malaysia di sini khasnya agar jangan sekali-kali melalui Jalan Diponegoro bagi mengelak kejadian yang tidak diingini.
Kebencian mereka itu memuncak kepada tahap yang serius dan menakutkan berikutan media tempatan baru-baru ini menyiarkan berita dan visual lebih 360 sukarelawan ilmu kebal yang dilaporkan sudah mendaftar dan bersedia untuk mengganyang Malaysia.Kebencian mereka itu memuncak lagi apabila hari ini terdapat sekumpulan orang yang menggelar diri mereka sebagai Benteng Demokrasi Rakyat (BENDERA) mula bertindak liar dengan mengugut rakyat Malaysia dengan buluh runcing di Jalan Diponegoro.Dilaporkan bahawa 50 anggota BENDERA yang bersenjatakan buluh runcing (buluh yang ditajamkan hujungnya) memaksa orang ramai yang melalui jalan itu menunjukkan tanda pengenalan mereka dan jika kebetulannya orang berkenaan seorang rakyat Malaysia maka orang itu akan terus ditahan.Tindakan mereka mengambil undang-undang di tangan sendiri dilaporkan media massa online tempatan termasuk detikcom.
Sebelum ini pernah rumah kediaman yang disewa pelajar Malaysia di Universiti Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta dibaling telur busuk oleh kumpulan yang berdemonstrasi terdiri daripada sekumpulan mahasiswa tempatan kerana marahkan Malaysia yang difitnah sebagai mencuri tarian Pendet yang berasal dari Bali.Berikutan isu itu yang terus diapi-apikan media massa tempatan dan dikaitkan pula dengan isu-isu lampau yang diungkit semula, beberapa kumpulan rakyat Indonesia juga berdemonstrasi di depan Kedutaan Besar Malaysia di sini.
Walaupun penafian telah dibuat bahawa Malaysia tidak pernah "mencuri" tarian itu untuk iklan video klip promosi pelancongan negara yang sebenarnya dibuat sebuah syarikat swasta yang berpejabat di Singapura, namun hakikat itu "jatuh ke telinga yang tuli dan mata yang buta".Anehnya, sebuah stesen TV yang baru saja menyiarkan program dialog di mana seorang pegawai tinggi Kementerian Luar Indonesia memberikan penjelasan bahawa Malaysia tidak pernah mengakui Pendet sebagai tarian berasal dari Malaysia, namun stesen TV yang sama juga kemudian mengulangi lagi tuduhan yang serupa.
Laman web okezone pula melaporkan bahawa anggota BENDERA ada memeriksa lebih daripada 100 orang.Bagaimanapun, detikcom melaporkan bahawa tiada seorang pun rakyat Malaysia yang kebetulan melalui jalan itu dan tindakan yang dikatakan akan dilakukan selama sejam, berakhir hanya selepas setengah jam.-- BERNAMA
ok, sebelum ni saya malas nak sentuh isu msia-indo ni,
walaupun kat hospital saya sering disindir2 tentang isu 'malaysia maling' ni
saya tak marah semua indolah, sebab saya tau tak semua orang kurang waras macam yang kat atas tu....
(i've got nice & understanding indo friends, walaupun ada jugak yang turut menyindir, tapi saya pahamlah kenapa,)
but seriously, diorang ni takde keje lain ke asyik nak mencari salah orang lain,
saya tau diorang banyak masa lapang, apa kata gunakan masa terluang tu mencari kerja yang lebih berfaedah, seperti membantu mangsa gempa yang tinggal di penampungan tu, hehehe ;P
& to pemerintah malaysia, tolong jangan ambil 'sepele' isu di atas itu,
things are gonna be very very nasty there i told you....
saya tau hal terburuk is not impossible to happen in the near future, seriously diorang berani buat apa yang diorang cakap nak buat, seriously!
bak kata my friend kiera, takkan nak kene tunggu ada rakyat malaysia kena tetak baru nak buat sesuatu? haih~
to those malaysians who are still in indo, saya doakan kalian sentiasa di bawah perlindungan Yang Maha Esa, aminnnn
