Hazelnut Opera Cake

After months of school in Taiwan, I’ve realised that there’s something scarily wrong in society.

My skinny underweight friends inContinue reading “Hazelnut Opera Cake”

Good ol’ banana bread. With swirls of malt. And studded with chocolate chips. Topped with crumble. A banana bread really can’t get better than this. That its low fat is just a bonus.

When my health is out of my control because  even a change in diet or taking medicine doesn’t work. When a “complex numbers” question appears on my examination paper. When I dislocate my right wrist but can’t feel any pain. WhenContinue reading “Fudgy Chocolate Cake with Nutella Frosting and Cheescake Filling”

Like a Sachertorte

I made this cake with a lady friend of mine with an intense love for anything dangerously rich and calorie-laden, and who despite this, owns a slim physique. The world is unfair, I know– that is until I get well again. I will live for that day… if I do manage to get through theContinue reading “Like a Sachertorte”

Sesame Chocolate Entremet

My cousin’s passing still feels like a blur– like its half real and half a nightmare.  So much like a dream that most of the time I still believe he’s alive and not suddenly without heartbeat. The last time something likeContinue reading “Sesame Chocolate Entremet”

What happened on New Year’s eve? . I: Watched 3 hours of Lizzie McGuire while waiting for Show Luo to magically appear on my television screen. Yes, I’m on a ‘Lizzie McGuire’ streak right now.
