Starting next week, my girl's life as a student will be jam packed with activities once again. Tuitions, CCAs and homework will take control over her life.
As this year will be her streaming year, I told her that she really needed to work harder than last year. I am happy to see that she is happily motivated. For the past one week, she had been really diligent and had such great attitude towards her goal that she puts me to shame with my lack of motivation.
To make a better role model, I decided that I wanted to take on a new hobby and that is crochet, pilate and hopefully learnt a piece of piano score. Hopefully with these, it will distract me further from my constant pain of seeing my son ruining his life. Yes, I am that helpless now.........
In the blogging world of baking, Alex Goh's recipes books are pretty well received. The success rates of his recipes are good too.
Though I owned his series of books but I never really attempted any of his recipes. Well don't ask me why. Perhaps I am more enticed by the pictures than the actual work.
I had read great reviews on this recipe's success rate but unfortunately, I don't know why I am otherwise.
While doing this one, somehow I think my hands were stained with oil for the egg whites just couldn't peak up. Three egg whites down the bin. Redo.
That is not the end of it ....... Perhaps I over boiled the milk mixture, perhaps I folded the egg white into the lukewarm cheese batter way too early ...
The cake actually rose beautifully but once out of the oven ……. I guess this cake reflect my exact sentiment right now.
