Even though I'm slowing down on crocheting...but still I can't get myself away from the yarns too long... true, I bake a lot these days...plus practicing new cake recipes and nibbling cake here and there..I would steal few minutes crocheting in front of the tv etc. I call it the 'Curse of the Yarns' hehehehe.
And my pineapple cake....hot from the oven.
Looking forward for more public holidays ahead....I can bake and crochet more...yes!

Don't you love the title. To prove that I still love to blog :)...Not that I wanna proof that I'm still here.
Guess what! I'm selling my own cakes!!! Come on girl, don't get too excited. I've always love baking and cooking. It's one of my favorite past time..other than crocheting and crafting. It gives me a different type of therapy , in a sense of indulging into lovely sweet cakes and cookies ....to get out from any stress or just to relax while having your cup of coffee after a long day at work etc.
I started to try out few recipes , to make sure I got the right and consistent taste & texture. Then I planned for the costing, packaging and marketing which I mostly count on FB for promoting and advertising. Andddddd....cake testing as well!! People will just love to taste few bites of your product and this is good for any comments or suggestions too..not that I'm changing the recipe or anything :)
I started with chocolate rice butter cake and then the premium pineapple cake. Both recipes are quite exquisite , simple but delicious.
I still do my crochet stuffs....even though my eyes get tired easily especially at night after a long day at work in front of the computer. Baker & crocheter...cool huh? hehehehe

Hi peeps....wow!!! I'm a real a champion when it comes to holiday mood...it's FOREVER...I want to blame on the frequent public holidays recently.....and those holidays really made me....LAZYYYYYY ... I have not crocheting much , more on spending myself facebooking (hey! a girl has to indulge into new crochet ideas right...) , watching a bit and there of new downloaded movies, lazying around...sleeping early....doing spring cleaning...went for after raya short trip up east coast, baked some...cooked some.life's been great.
Tell you where I've been....the photos were taken at below resort.
Awesome place with awesome accomodation, not so high in price too.
Once in a while..it's good to get out from your usual place and hometown...see new places....new surroundings....try different type of food....unfortunately I did not snap food photos..what!!! Cause was enjoying them and forgot all about snapping hehehhe....
Lovely scenery..the breeze, the ocean, the beach....speechless. Took my breath away..Back at home, practicing old fav recipe....pineapple cake. I have not baked this for quite some time and since I have some stocks of baking ingredients...so I thought of whisking few cakes....the urge and excitement of cracking eggs and measuring sugar , butter & flour suddenly creeping through my body....hahahah...dramatic but true.
And I even tried a cream caramel recipe..I've never done cream caramel before...so it's kinda exciting...Turned out ok..I think heheheh
And who could have resist the spaghetti sauce...yummy......you can cook it earlier and freeze it. The next day....just boil some paste..and walla!
Baking mode was so consistent...I even baked twins!!! hehehhehe
Last but not least..after all the travelling, baking, cooking etc....back to the most theraupetic session...CROCHETING....

July is in town , I'm way behind the post updates.Not that I'm lazy ...but busy with lots of things.Trying to keep up with the crochet stuffs and also with chocodates orders. Chocodates??? Well..it's chocolate dates with almond inside....my husband has been in this business for the past 2 years , it's one of his other business venture that's he's into. And this is my first time, doing it on my own....trying to gain new exposure and income for the coming fasting month :)
Interested to try it? :)
I'm still doing some crocheting..here and there, bits and pieces , trying this and that hehehhehehe.....
And I attended my 1st bazaar this year....but not promoting my handicraft...more on chocodates...with my dear friend , Mar who is a baker...she bakes delicious cuppies! There she is...next to me snapping this photo heheheh
Plus....I did the price tag myself, hehehehe cute don't you think? No? Well,I don't care hehhehe...am posting it anyway :)
Doing other thing than crocheting does not mean I'm tired of it. I think diversifying myself would make me more productive, more creative and happy. Yup, HAPPY is the word.
Ok peeps...wanna see your chocolate dates order now! hehhehehe
