George Clooney didnt have to do much to convince me to give it a change, and am i glad i did.

Introducing what i think is the best coffee machine:

I got a bit too excited testing all the different flavors yesterday ... after 3 shots of espresso ... i think overdosed on caffeine ... LOL ... but it was YUMMY

All you cafes out there.. you aint gonna get any more $$ out of me from now

Another baking session

Sunday, December 07, 2008

This time its a chocolate zucchini cake.
As strange as it sounds, it actually tastes really good. Recipe is taken from Clotilde's blog. Because my cake looked a little ugly.. i though i would cover it up with ganache to hide the uneven surface! smart right? hahaha

Do try it :)

Pandan Cake

I'm back... after a loooooooong break :)

Back to knitting and baking ... fingers crossed i will continue to update this blog regularly

My first attempt at a chiffon cake. Recipe is taken from Aunty Yochana's Cake Index. There are HEAPS of good recipes there ... i think i will be busy for a while :) In fact, i've been to her place for a baking lesson whilst i was in Singapore last week

Not too bad i reckon, except i should have taken it out properly, some of the brown bits on the top of the cake came off as i took it out from the cake tin ... sigh, why can't i be more gentle?

Anyway, its yummy, i am pleased with myself.

Another sock?

Finally a FO

Finished my Anastasia Socks finally... and I love them! I used Tofutsies bought from Helen and Ann and they are fantastic! the yarn is a tiny wee splity but its so soft... i will definitely be knitting with it again. Whilst i love my new socks... i couldnt get them off quick enough yesterday after posing for a photo shot... it was a REALLY hot and humid day... reminds me of good old Singapore :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

If i had a sewing machine, i think we could have managed a lot more! We have heaps of materials left over... will no doubt be making more... but first, i need to borrow a sewing machine!

You must be thinking when is she ever going to post another knitting related post.... tada! .... here it is.... Cotton Anastasia Socks... :P

I know .. I know... its way overdue... but better late than never?

A little more and i will be up to the heel - Good progress for my standards

These are being knitted with Tofutsies. First time knitting with this yarn, and other than being a tad splitty, i quite like the texture. Plus... i REALLY love the color... its pink... what you expect? \(^0^)/
