Anyway, so I figured, if I’m really serious about baking for events and stuff, then I need to get my baking polished up. Gonna look for a book about the sciences of cooking. I hope this will explain certain things so I can tweak the recipes here and there.

My current plan? Until my birthday on the 19th of April, I’m gonna complete 14 recipes from my favourite food blog: Lick the Bowl Good.

  1. Red Velvet Cake Roll
  2. Lemon and Lime cream pie
  3. Corn dog muffins
  4. Pecan Pie Cupcakes
  5. Bacon, Eggs and Toast Cups
  6. Cake-Pan
  7. Cranberry Cookie Bars
  8. Strawberry Cupcakes
  9. Coffee Chocolate Chip Muffins
  10. Rainbow Cupcakes
  11. Burnt Sugar Cake
  12. Chai Cake with Honey-Ginger Cream
  13. Hummingbird Cake
  14. Orange Madeira Ring


Initially I wanted to do 20 recipes but could only find 14 I wanted to try. She does quite a bit of baking with cakemix, crock-pot dinners and very sinful (ie very sweet/rich) desserts.

I’m not gonna bother to decorate any of the cakes unless someone suddenly asks for a cake for a special occasion. Unlikely I think. :/

don’t worry Jet, I’ll still read, run and swim the rest of the time. (:



after working like crazy for the past few weeks-months, I’ve come to realise what are the simple joys in nursing.

as much as being in-charge and really stretching myself almost every day leaves me satisfied, I still enjoy spending time with my patients.

  1. joking around with them
  2. tidying them up
  3. taking them for a shower
  4. combing their hair (yes, even the old men!)
  5. doing simple/complicated dressings and leaving them all clean!
  6. feeding those who can’t feed themselves
  7. sitting an almost bedridden patient out on a chair just for a while
  8. cleaning a very soiled diaper
  9. walking someone who has not walked in ages!
  10. waving a patient off as he/she is discharged

and so I do enjoy being a junior once in a while. (:
