I am optimistic, creatively-inclined and enjoy creative pursuits such as cooking, baking, music and drawing.
My favorite things to cook
Italian food, mostly pasta, lasagne etc. I love baking too, and have baked loads of stuff ranging from muffins to custard puffs to apple crumbles. Desserts are also a favorite of mine to prepare. Mostly, I delight in cooking the unexpected, unheard of, untried recipe because i'm still gaining experience in this hobby of cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Malay cooking is traditionally yummy, although hazardous to the health in the long term, what with generous servings of coconut milk and oil used in the cooking process.
My cooking triumphs
Loads! Most recently, fresh fruit cobbler that was a delight amongst family taste testers. Not so recently, BBQ chicken rice and also dark chocolate tart and creamy cheese fusili chicken.
My cooking tragedies
Sponge cake that turned out horribly flat, brownies that were over-browned. Ironically, it is the basic, apparently easy to follow recipes that I falter in.
