Strawberry Jelly Cheesecake happiness =)

with 2 comments

Christmas is an awesome time of the year. Especially when Mel is Santa. =) I know it’s a waste to use ramekins for cheesecake purposes but but… all my souffle attempts have not been blog post worthy. 😦 And the ramekins photograph so beautifully with the cheesecake.

Gourmet! These babies are gourmet! Not even available off the shelf in Singapore, she got them from the UK. This must be love. And there are 4 in the set, what an awesome number that is for baking. 1 souffle for my sister and 3 for me. =) Awesome. Read the rest of this entry »

The Day After Oat Muffins

with one comment

After two major celebration worthy holidays crammed back to back… my jeans do not fit happily. =( Today’s post will be another one of those healthy and yet tasty muffins that won’t add on to your guilt trip. I really shouldn’t have eaten that last piece of cadbury gold chocolate. Sigh. Or that extra slice of peaches and cream pie with Ben and Jerry’s ice-cream. MOPE. No help to it. At least these muffins are actually healthy and yummy.

It’s another year yet again, 2010 was whirlwind of coming of age incidents and exciting discoveries. I wonder what 2011 holds for us all. Will we finally discover aliens on mars? =O I shall write out a New Year Resolution for the Year 2011.

New Year Resolution for Miss 2011,

1. This year, I will not allow any major terrorist tragedy to occur during my reign.

2. There will be no death or destruction, wildfires and strange climate storms will cease.

3. There will be peace worldwide if only just for a year.

4. Greedy bankers and businessmen will find themselves plagued by mysterious bouts of guilt and conscience.

5. COE prices in Singapore will not go beyond 2K but all families will only be allowed one car. Rich families will have to sell their extra 8 ferraris (not like it does them any good on Singapore roads anyway) and donate the proceeds to an uncorrupt charity.

6. Charities will install mysterious robots who will whack the hands of corrupt people who try and misappropriate funds.

7. All children will be happy instead of being locked at home and made to finish assessment books.

8. Nobody would wish to divorce but couples will live together happily and resolve their differences through communication and compromise.

9. There will be no more gang attacks in Singapore, gang members who find themselves itching to do mischief will instead pick up baking.

10. Life will be good.
