achievement of the day!!
finished draft at 10am, napped till 2pm, headed to office till 8pm and met up with david for coffee where i sucked the life out of probably 10 cigarettes within the 3 hours. stressed lah.
such is my life. but i'm lovin it.
i couldn't bear to leave my spanking new conventional oven to perform mundane matters like toast and to sterilise hammie's toys.
so all of a sudden on my way home, i knew i had to put my domestic instincts to good use.
so i got flour, eggs and baking powder from the supermarket.
i'm gonna make myself a sponge cake!!!
i know it sounds really easy, just whip the eggs into soft peaks, fold in flour and sugar and then pop it into the preheated oven.
but i assure you it is far from that, especially when i have to manually whip the eggs. which chipped my impeccably manicured nails.
my arms are actually still quite sore now from the whipping (ooh, sounds kinky), for it took me 20 minutes to actually get the eggs into form.
which is why i need a boyfriend, for i'll command him to do all the whipping while i bend over to bare my ass.
i mean, i'll command him to do the whipping while i sieve the flour and oil the baking tins. haha.
i've always been pretty adept at cooking but i don't know why i am cursed with the opposite of a midas touch in baking.
BUT NOT TODAY! NO SIREE!!!
INTRODUCING... MY FIRST EVER SUCCESSFUL ATTEMPT AT BAKING!! HELL YEAH!
Sponge cake (bachelorette size) with warm strawberry jam :D okay so it looks really ugly and i'm not even sure if its palatable but hey! at least it didn't turned out charred or become one congealed mess.
actually it feels a tad harder than how sponge cakes should be. i.e, soft and fluffy.
okay, heading out to meet bertie boy for a quick smoke now. poor dude lost a huge client and is feeling in the dumps.
