Chocolate Fondant Batch No. 001

i love to bake. but being passionate about something doesn't necessarily make me good at it.

after quite a number of failed attempts, i finally tasted sweet success today. literally.

thanks to a dear friend who introduced the recipe to me, i was inspired to make use of some free time (what a rare luxury!) to bake this afternoon.

and this is the result:

i can make heavenly chocolatey oozy yummy warm cakes with my own hands! such a sense of satisfaction...

so far, my mum and 6 friends have tasted Chocolate Fondant Batch No. 001. 100% positive comments. *gleeful beam*

(if i can do it, u can do it too! check out this recipe and others at

Both Sides, Now

最近在台北买了两张 Ann Sally 的专辑,她在其中一张专辑里翻唱了这首歌。她的歌声,很迷人,很美。


Rows and flows of angel's hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feathered canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and they snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way.

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, but still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all.

Moon and Junes and Ferris wheels
That dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way.

But now it's just another show
You leave them laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away.

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, but still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all.

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day.

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose, but still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all.

-- Joni Mitchell

P.S. 谢谢你们的关心。其实,写上一篇日记时心情不算太低落,只是有点小感触,灵感来了,就写了一段文字抒发心情。那段文字也不会很忧郁啊...其实还蛮乐观的,不是吗?

it's so so so hot here.

never experienced such intense heat. never understood the true meaning of "scorching sun".

but now i know.

in taipei now, filming. very happie to do it, but these few days have reallie tested my perseverence limits. long hours, intolerable heat, direct sunlight, lack of rest n water...a very bad combi. the skin on my face has decided to stage a protest: redness n pimples all over.

so depressing now to look at the mirror. hope it gets better has to!


despite the hardships, am glad to have a reallie caring team and especially a wonderful friend taking good care of me.

very grateful for this experience. it will make me a better, stronger person. :)
