So I heard it said that pastry is a baker’s LBD. Well, if that’s the case, then mine has quite a bit of alteration to be done. Sigh. I’m under the influence of Julie and Julia (having just finished watching it) and am sweating it out in the sweltering kitchen trying to make one of my favourite dishes: Pumpkin Pie. Yes, so it’s not thanksgiving and we don’t celebrate it in our home but the sweet and spice and slight ideation of being, well, different, makes this dish…. okay. I’m not really in the mood of talking about food. I’ll take pictures as usual and let them do the talking.

I’m working 2 weekends in a row which is a real bummer, I’ll only get to see Jet once a week. This week it’s supposed Friday but coincidentally Bible Study is on that evening too. I don’t really have a choice do it. I don’t.

Fine, so I’ll be honest. I’d much rather spend a quiet evening alone with Jet than go for bible study. There, I said it. It’s not that I don’t enjoy BS or that I think Jet is more important. And it’s not that I’m always clamouring to spend an epic amount of time with Jet.

I shall just end here.

ps. go look for the photos on FB.


Well, well, well. I’m still here. Been a while and not quite easy.

Dating a medical student is truly trying. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jet, yes I do. And I’m not any worse so having to see him (a whole lot) less than I’d fancy. I find myself trying to occupy myself otherwise and looking earnestly towards the time we do get to spend together alone. But like he says “good things come to those who wait” and, well, absence does make the heart a whole lot fonder! 😀

Work is work as usual. There isn’t anything special or surprising about it really. I’m enjoying the challenges, the prospect of days going by and the friendly banter I always seem to find myself in with my colleagues. The house is pretty quite and empty what with Rebecca in Canada and Mummy in the UK with Granny. I know September has just begun but I’m thoroughly looking forward to Christmas. Oh, I know, there will be many things happening before that like the Mission Trip, my BCLS training, baking a wonderful cake for Faiz and Lin etc. But right now, the prospect of Christmas just seems so appealing to me. ((:

Jet and Sze just celebrated their respective birthdays and I had great fun (and the honour) of baking for them. It’s funny how I don’t have to think about it anymore considering that I was thinking about the whole fiasco everyday for a few weeks. I went through tonnes of recipes, racked my brains for quirky ideas and went shopping a few times. I must have spent over 24hours in total just planning and preparing everything. I’ve never baked so much and for so long my entire life! But you know something? It’s something I actually enjoyed through and through. Yea, so when I was emo about not seeing Jet for almost a week, baking for him seemed kinda pointless. But I kept reminding myself that all that was mainly for his sister. He’ll get his share when he turns 21!

Anyway, I’m going back to my book now. Here are some photos for show. 😀
