Baking Day



My second bake for this year. 

And last night was a total failure. I forgot to add my sugar to my flour and in the end, when I added the sugar to my dough last, it became too soggy. Threw away my dough and went to bed disappointed. 

This morning tried again and thank God I didn't make any silly mistake. The scones turned out nice and flavorful. The shape could be improved though.

Breaking 70


For a long long time, my mass has never gone below the 70 Kg mark. 

Ever since Yoshi shared his secret to his weight loss, I have lost about 4 Kg. His weight loss regime is not as daunting as it seems at first, and I managed to stick to eat for a whole month. 

Weight loss regime:

Cycle 1:
First 3 days, breakfast, lunch and dinner on fruit and water only. Any kind of fruit and only drinking water. 

Next 4 days, breakfast on fruits, lunch and dinner eat normally starting with vegetable first. 

Repeat the cycle for another 3 times. 

After that will be just breakfast fruits and lunch and dinner normal starting we the consumption of vegetable first for each meal. 

Initially, thinking of not having my sinful chinese breakfast with my morning coffee will let me have withdrawal syndrome. However, I manage to survive that. The first week, I felt a little latargic at first then it was manageable until cycle four where I really crave for normal food again. 

I'm not the only living example the this regime works, some of my friends who tried it have lost at least 3 Kg. 


Durian Feast



Kat, the durian queen, organized a durian feast at her one and only durian supplier she goes to. She shared that she has been patronising the same supplier since as a girl. And she doesn't eat any other kind of durian except the "branded" kind, 猫山皇. 

We arrived at 717 Trading, #01-01 Highland Center, 22 Yio Chu Kang Road at about 7pm. There was already a long queue. All the eat in make shift tables along the pavement were occupied. Apparently, there was a company event going on. So we decided to take away and feast at Siew Boon's place instead. 

Kat and I queued for an hour before we managed to get hold of six of the king of fruits. They cost us S$164 @ S$18 per Kg. 

The rest who left earlier had prepared cold coconut juice at home for us. All our six prized possessions turned out good, soft creamy and with shrunk seed. 

I had told Kat that that was my first time queue ing for an hour for food. Before we departed from SB's place, Kat suggested to go for another round of durian at 818 at Telok Kurau, before the durian season ends.

Aquarium


This is my first time setting up an aquarium. Knowing nuts about keeping fish in a transparent cuboid tank, I had to ask the store keeper's for advice from step 1 to the end. 

In the end, bought this small glass tank with 12 small fish, complete with a filter and LED illuminating light. 

Hope this little fish tank will give my father some thing to focus on, else void with any hobby and interest, life can be aimless and painful. 


A commitment to come back to blogging

After a long hiatus from blogging, I decided to make a come back. I just viewed a YouTube clip which suggest that if we commit to...
