Reading Week 2017

I can’t believe that my last post was in September, even before I came back to the UK. It has been about 2 months since I came back to the UK for my second year of university and honestly, time flew by so quickly that it’s already November. Christmas lights switched on last week, Christmas markets are up and running and most of all, the …

4 days

1 June 2017, the day I landed back safely in my home country. Nearly a whole 4 months of summer break coming to an end soon in 4 days. Before coming back to Malaysia, I figured I should spend my summer break wisely and not just rot my life away for 4 months. I kind of did, for a few days though. I thought of …

Red Velvet Cupcakes

I haven’t been piping flowers for the past few months and this is probably my first this year. I don’t have flower tips or flower nail (yet) in the UK so I couldn’t pipe flowers. I also haven’t been baking for about a month already and I’m finally back to it again!   Red Velvet Cupcakes recipe from The Hummingbird  60g unsalted butter 150g caster …

World Asian Case Competition 2017

Figured I’d pen everything down so I don’t forget my experiences and can read back later in the future. Months ago, sometime in May, DH asked me whether I was willing to join their team for the WACC 2017. Prior to him asking me, I was supposed to join the competition with another friend but due to many reasons, we didn’t submit our proposal in …

China Part 2

It’s been a really great 3 weeks of my summer break and probably one of the greatest experience I’ve had in my life. Despite studying abroad, it really feels different this time, to be alone in a foreign country. However, I am really grateful and thankful that I have friends who are like family to me already for the past 3 weeks. During the first …

China Part 1

While waiting for my hair to dry because there’s no hair dryer provided, I thought I might as well update this space instead of wasting time scrolling through Instagram. I have been in China for exactly a week now and everything has been pretty fine up till now. Jinan has been really great so far except the crazy weather. Shanghai had a crazier weather compared …

Mini Sausage Rolls and Carrot Cake

I haven’t updated this space for a while now but I have been baking from time to time. I made sausage rolls few days back for my little brother to bring to school and just for the family, basically. Taste and texture wise, it was alright, not too bad but appearance wise, uhm. Let the picture speak for itself. The buns weren’t properly shaped, I …

Rainbow Kek Lapis

So many things to do yet so little time. I finally received my results last week and I successfully passed Year 1. Dreading Year 2 but oh well, it’s only two more years left for me before I enter the working class. I’ve been doing quite a lot for my summer break but other than that, I really need to start working on my presentation before I fly off to …

Spicy Chai Tea Chiffon Cake

It’s been about a month since my summer break started and since I got back to Malaysia. The first month of summer break was quite a hectic one. Since the day I got back, it has been competition all day long with maybe one or two days break in between. It didn’t really feel like summer break because I was still constantly going on my …

5박 6일 서울여행 (Seoul Trip Part 2)

Day Three As usual, our day started at 9.00am where we set off to visit 한국민속촌 (Korean Folk Village) at Yongin, which was about 1.5 hours from Seoul. I slept all the way there because I only had like 3 hours of sleep? I had coffee the night before so I really couldn’t go to sleep. DH came over and we ended up having a …
