evolving with times..

As the viscous circle of adulthood begins to overwhelm me; I finally give in to the fact that I can't do everything. *laughs* I used to be the Super-girl...who could Get to uni, score well, come home...cook dinner for everyone, finish my assignments, have time to bake a cake or 2 occasionally, have freshly baked cookies...pies and delicious thing for everyone and still have an hour to spare to blog about it.
Its been awhile since...and now when I bake..I'm baking responsibly; because I made a promise...and because it's for sale. I've overloaded with the number or subjects @ Uni this semester...and assignments throughout the last weeks of classes are driving me nuts! My house is a mess and desperately needing some good cleaning all the time *sigh* It's so not Su...
but I'm out of bright ideas....I don't have time to worry...I've got an assignment to complete and a magazine to write for.
I'm blogging now at 8.40 in the morning...because I miss blogging...
Like how I used to...with all my nonsense in the kitchen, with my new experiments...and the ability to make a mess and be adventurous. I hate to think that I'm growin old...it's probably because I've gone past the phase of just cooking for 'fun'. Now cooking is a responsibility...it's not that i don't love it no longer; it just feels different.
I personally feel I've came a long way from days when I used to make pancakes at 6 in the morning and snap a gazillion photos of them for my blog*laughs*
Oh well....my old posts are still up, and I laugh at my rants and writings of the past. My photography was hopeless! *blush* It's better now; but I just wish I had more time to pursue it as hobby; aside from my cooking and baking.
Here's a couple of photos I've been working on for the magazine..:S *sigh* I wish I could do better sometimes..



I've recently come up with a couple of cute merchandise for the kitchen (e.g shopping bags, recipe books, aprons, etc) ...I just haven't had time to set them all up. I wish I did...I was so excited. In the near future guys...would love to see the response.
My schedule says I should be getting off my computer and heading down to the city to collect my visa and purchasing my air ticket. I have a feeling it'll be wise to listen to it. :P

Catch ya all later!
I have a cake due every weekend from this Saturday till the end of July...so keep your eyes peeled for some awesome sculpted cake posts! *giggle* My super Mario cake wasn't the best I can do...just watch me ;)

I know EXACTLY what you mean. I have just recently come to this conclusion myself - we can't do everything, but we sure can stress ourselves while trying! There just aren't enough hours in the day.

Suyin, i cant believe how talented you are, as much as i love to be int the kitchen n cook, i will probably never be able to make mario's or remote's cake like what you did..
any hints and tips? my boyfriend's son would be delighted if i could make him a Mario bro cake on his birthday in december.
thanks in advance Suyin.
By the way you are more than welcome to visit my just started blog *blush* and please advise on how to make it better.
i am like you, i live and work abroad, so i tend to cook more Asian food to enable myself not to miss my home country that much.
ps: i love your instant noodle idea. :)
