I came up with this chocolate custard, with a bit of egg white in it coz I can’t stand the wastage, haha. Not sure why there were fine lines in the custard, though. Perhaps due to air bubbles from the palm shortening? Maybe I should sift it. :/

I found out last night that the spectrums palm shortening I bought contains a lot of air. Thousands of air bubbles escaped as I melted the shortening over the stove.

I also found out, to my utter horror, that raw honey do not mix into melted palm shortening. Even after heating the mixture. (I added cocoa powder; was trying to make chocolate.)

Sigh.

Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually’, just do it and correct the course along the way.

Ignoring your passion is slow suicide. Never ignore what your heart pumps for. Mold your career around your lifestyle not your lifestyle around your career.

Searching for meaning

To be honest, working life is pretty enjoyable for me, especially with an income, but I don’t feel fulfilled. It’s not that I’m dissatisfied, but I’m not exactly satisfied either. I don’t feel like this is what I’m born to do, like this is my purpose in life, like this is what my heart is beating for, you know? And then I look at my friends who are struggling/bored/unhappy in their jobs, and I wonder if I’m thinking too much or plain ungrateful. :/ I just have this desire for a much greater meaning in my life.

How can I be grateful for life, grateful for where I am now and all that I have, and still think that it is not enough, that something is lacking, at the same time?

My dad made me a turntable out of a lazy susan wheel and a round wooden board! :D I’m exploding from joy pretty soon, haha.

The first thing I frosted on the turntable? A bowl. LOL.

Trying to make a coffee dacquoise cake. :) I actually have no idea how chewy or crunchy the meringue layer is supposed to be. I guess it’s all up to personal preference?

No idea how others’ meringues all stayed so nice and rounded. Mine always deflates, whether I bake them until dry and crispy or just until it is still soft and chewy inside. :’(

Solely personal. Just for fun. :)
