I was curious, so I baked

Hey everyone, I'm back again. In my yesteryear posts, I would always say that I bake because I'm bored. This time around, I was curious so I decided to bake. Yes, lately I have been obsessed with peanut butter, so one night as i was about to go to sleep, the idea came to me. How does peanut butter chocolate brownies taste like? Of course when I woke up, i forgot what I wanted to bake and it took me ages to remember what I wanted to make. I actually found 2 recipes, but I decided to use the one with less ingredients because I'm lazy like that hahahahaha =P I actually used a smaller pan and I had to bake it longer because the middle was still runny. Overall, the outer layer is crunchy and the inside was soft and chewy. It's not too sweet just nice but I feel that there is something missing in these brownies. I'm still trying to figure it out. Here is the original recipe.

I was really busy in the kitchen yesterday because I wanted to try so many things. So I also made some Cream Cheese Popiah/Spring rolls. I really love the prawn and cheese ones from Excapade Sushi but i wanted to make some for myself without buying from them. I searched high and low on the internet for that recipe and i found it on a fellow Bruneian's blog hehehehehehe. Click here for the original recipe.I don't have any pictures to show off but my verdict is; it's not too bad but I probably need sweet Thai chilli sauce so it tastes similar to what Excapade Sushi serves.

The next recipe that I'm gonna try would be 'GyeRan Bbang' which is Korean Egg Bread. I have found a certain recipe that i would like to try. I post it up if i have tried making it already. It has definitely been a while since I've baked and I quite enjoy it.

In other news, I can't wait to watch Despicable Me 2!!! I've already watched Monster's University and I love it!!! I so can't wait till Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 2! YES! I LOVE MY CARTOONS!!! hahahahaha. And oh, a random fact about me, I don't really know how to work the current microwave that we have in our house. It's not the digital kind, it's the modern looking one with some turning knobs. Lol!

I guess that is it for now! Will update more soon ;D Ciao~

It's 2013!

Hi everyone! I did not realize that it has been a little over 1 year since I've updated my blog. And yes, I have definitely been very busy with life. I have gone through a lot of ups and downs in life but I am ultimately grateful for everyone who has always been there for me. I've met a whole new lot of people now, but of course that does not mean that I have forgotten my old friends. I still keep them in mind wherever I go :) I guess i have matured over the whole year in a different environment. I will try my very best to update this blog now, at least once a week... hahahahaha... but seriously, i do have a lot of time on my hands now.

So if you don't have me on Instagram, here is some facts just to keep everyone up to speed with what I am up to and this is everything i can think of about me now. I love bags, handbags in particular. I still love to eat so I am as curvy as ever (lol). I no longer work in the Bank and am currently in an IT consulting company. I've changed posts in my current workplace 3 times for my already 1 yr duration here; from a Call Agent to a HR Personnel and now to a Helpdesk Analyst. I don't really like the HR field although a lot of the people I work with says I'm cut out for it. I still have not have made time to read books, which i know i should. I also love to bake when I have the time! I used to take orders for it but I've stopped now because I'm not as youthful as I used to be XP. I am still a pirate hehehehe. I love to travel and i can't wait to go on holiday. I'm now finding a bit of joy using Apple products, although I still have a lot to learn about them. I am back in my church choir, singing with the wonderful evergreen aunties and uncles. I now like coffee, it gives me that kick start every morning. I absolutely LOVE peanut butter, particularly Peter Pan branded ones. I'm crazy about korean dramas and variety shows now, particularly 2days and 1night. I like collecting Starbucks tumblers and cold cups. I am kinda into scrap booking now, but i can't seem to get any ideas or inspiration easily. I've had my car for 5 years now and i still love it. I don't cam-whore as much as I use to. Some nights I can become a travel agency, since people always ask me to purchase air tickets on their behalf. When I am stressed, chocolate is my #1 answer. I still love watching cartoons, even in the cinema. I love the colour pink.

I think that it is it for now. And here is a 5 month old picture of me, my hair is just longer now. LOL. =D
