I was on a mooncake-baking frenzy for the last couple of weeks. This particular kind of mooncake is my mom’s favorite pastry. She favors Chinese pastries over the Western ones and she has been craving these for a couple months now so I decided to get over my fear of baking flaky pastries and jumpContinue reading “Matcha/ Cocoa Spiral Mooncakes with Red bean/ Sesame Mochi Filling (Recipe)”
This cake is moist, crumbly and decadent. Its milo flavoured, which really means malted chocolate flavoured. For the text version of the recipe, click here.
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.
Sometimes, I’m scared. When cockroaches fly-pounce onto my shirt (avoid bright colours near cockroaches). 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”
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.

I added lemon juice, blendedContinue reading “B-Caraibe (A Vanilla-Chocolate-Banana Entremet)”
. . I’ve been sick the past few days, since I went off medication. 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. Season 2 already, by the way. Watched a giant beetle crawl over the television screen but couldn’t pick up enoughContinue reading “Marbled Pound Cake with Perfected Mock ‘Buttercream’ (Whole Wheat, Low Fat & w Vegan option)”
. Let’s face it. You’ll probably like it more than you like me. It can be served warm or cold. I’m cold to people I’m not close to but warm to people I am close to. (…Why am I telling you this??? I’m very possibly just showing another sign of stage 2 craziness. Yet again.Continue reading “Single Serving Cookie Dough Bowl (Quick, Vegan, Gluten-free and definitely healthy)”
