Sis rang to tell me that uncle went to meet up with Papa Jesus.
I put down the phone with mixed feeling. Sadness mixed with relief. On one hand I am glad that he is released from all those pain that he had been sufferring especially the last one month. He is definitely has good pain tolerance level as he was only diagnoised with Stage 4 cancer a month ago. On the other hand, I felt sad as he is a happy go lucky uncle that I had. Always chatty and smiling.
During CNY, he was still looking strong and well and now he is gone. Life is just so fragile. I am also glad that I had the honour to feed him with some of my home made food. He also given all of us a chance to be with him on his last remaining hours.
Good bye uncle, I am sure you are in safe hands now.
Been a long time since I last baked bread. Chosen this Sesame bread as I have a bottle of sesame spread in the pantry as well as organic black sesame powder that LM gave me. (we used this to bake macaroons the last time and it was heavenly). Still craving for sesame cream but yet to find time to buy raw sesame to make into sesame cream. Definitely will do it once kids go back to school.
Done a bad job in spreading the sesame paste and couldn't really form that nice swirl. Seriously needed more practise to get this right.
Couldn't wait for the loaf to cool down and I had problem slicing the bread. Perhaps I have to seriously consider getting a bread slicing guide. I brought this loaf to the wake and received good reviews. 17 hours method works all the time for me.
Note: Even after 2 days, the bread is still soft.
