For the past week, I’ve been doing quite a bit of baking. Baked three types of biscuits. Well, more like, baked two types, the last one’s still in the refrigerator chilling. Coz I’ve run out of containers to keep the biscuits.

When it comes to baking, I love baking biscuits coz I LOVE eating biscuits and ONLY the imported kinds. Which is becoming a bit of an expensive ‘addiction’. So baking’s the best way to go. I get more for every ringgit spent. Must be frugal a bit lah, so that I can spend more on…erm…clothes? hahaha

First bake was a dog biscuit which I’ve sold to my first customer (woo hoo!!).

Chicken & Rosemary Biscuit – 200gm for RM25.

Ingredients are fresh chicken breast, flax seed, rye flour, olive oil and chicken broth

I use rye flour, which is a wheat free and gluten free flour coz my dog has skin allergies. Last year, when I started baking dog treats for him using plain flour or wholemeal flour, his skin turned red with rashes! Had to bring him to the vet to get it treated. The poor thing. So now I’m a lot more careful with what I feed my dog.

I’ve been dabbling in baking my own dog treats. Kinda like a new hobby that hopefully can become a money earner for me. However, I’ve also been rather inconsistent. Sometimes bake. Often times, too lazy. Hence, nothing’s come of it. :p

Second bake was a White Cheddar Shortbread.

This is a recipe that I got from a blog called Vegetable Matter . These turned out rather good. VERY RICH. So rich that every piece I munch on makes me feel like I’m putting on kilos!! And unfortunately, ToyBoy isn’t too keen on all that cheese. So I’ve been eating them alone.

Third bake was chocholate chocolate chip cookies. I love chocolate. Especially chocolate chip cookies made with quality chocolate that are rich and not too sweet. Will post this up once I’ve baked them. Which is after I buy some new containers. ^0^

Have a good weekend everyone.

People usually do a new year post right after new year. Stands to reason, really. But I thought I’ll do mine after a week. Just to let the new year festivities settle. More importantly, the party-goer in me settle.

December has been a month of whirlwind activities with almost non-stop partying and drinking. A lot of merry-making. Like a good friend says, once all that is over, we comedown with post-party blues/depression. Kinda sad if you think about it.

I haven’t been blogging very much since I came back from Bangkok. Truth be told, haven’t been very inspired to blog. And also haven’t had much to blog about. And also been kinda lazy to upload photographs. Etc Etc Etc…

In case you haven’t noticed, I like to blog about things I come across online, or my random rambling thoughts. These don’t need any photos.

But I do admit photos makes a blog  ‘oh so nice’ . Or much nicer to read. Anyway….

Back to my topic, the new year so far.

Its been 10 days into the new year. I find myself sitting and wondering the following:

1. Do I feel one year older? Do I look one year older?

2. Has there been any significant changes in my life so far? Or is my life still running on the same wheel?

3.  What are my goals for this year?

4. How do I want this year to be different?

It feels, this year, last year, the year before…Every year has been the same. The same worries, the same nagging feeling that I’m not doing enough, the same fear that I’ll fall sick and not be able to afford treatment (this came from watching too much of Grey’s Anatomy), the same ….. the list goes on and on. Some too private to mention. shhh…

And so, begins the new year, where we all try our best. Where I will try my best.

Cheers!
