Alhamdulillah after a 4-days leave I am back at work today. It was such a long absence at the Library and I kind of feel nervous, you know the feeling of meeting someone that you haven't seen for quite a long time. That's the feeling.
Anyway, back inside my comfortable office, surrounded by hundreds of books, files and magazines, I am home. Well not exactly home but it's the same feeling of being inside my home.
The downside is - lots of suspended works are waiting. Bills to settle, cheques to issue, books to check, read and reviews and also research for new information. I always love doing research but writing report is not my specialty.
Well, today's research is on halal cheese in Malaysia. This is a very interesting topic for me since I love baking bread, making pizza and also cooking with pasta. Usually cooking all this types of food I will use cheese. And I know many of us use cheese in our daily menu but the problem is where to get a halal cheese? I usually buy Australian cheeses which has a halal stamp from Australian Halal Board (I can't really remember the exact name, sorry.) but they aren't cheap.
Actually, I already know that there is a few halal cheese manufacturer in Malaysia but I haven't gave them a serious thought until now. A friend suggest that I become a dealer for one of the manufacturer and sell halal cheese in the East Coast region, interesting idea isn't it?
My research has brought me to these websites:
- Keju Mozzarella Segar, Buatan Malaysia
- Keju Sebagai Bahan Makanan
- Memilih Keju Halal
- House of Halal Cheese

I think I have two choices of cheese now, one is made from buffalo's milk and the other is made from palm oil. Alhamdulillah... the solution to my dilemma is now solved.
