Happy holidays!

The food consumed, the dishes done.
The apartment’s cleaned and the bags all packed.
Tis my second year celebrating Christmas with Ken but it seemed we have been together for ages already!
Off to the West coast for our vacation to enjoy a bit of sunshine…or rain.
Happy holidays!

This past year in the kitchen

When did I really get serious in the kitchen?

Looking through my blog entries, it officially started on 12 Dec 2009. I was married to a wonderful man and we were bunking in at his father’s place during the weekends. His apartment had a nice kitchen, renovated a few years back but what’s more important was the existence of a relatively new oven that was underutilised. What a pity! Under the encouragement of both men (my FIL is really sweet and definitely has a sweet-tooth), I started my adventures in the kitchen, in particular, baking.

I started a blog too to document all the dishes I have had prepared. Oh, the many lessons I have learnt in this one year and yet I’m just at the tip of it. I wanted to get more serious with it and as I have been managing two blogs concurrently, one of them was not as well-maintained as I wanted it to be.

So, I will be documenting my adventures in the kitchen in the space here. I’m not going to do a migration from kitchenwork to this site; it’s too messy. I’m starting anew…yet again.

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last,
“what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.
