Happy Friday! 🎉 🎉 For me, this past week felt oddly anticlimactic (perhaps with the Tokyo Olympics finished last week, I felt a little like I don’t know what to do with my life anymore! 😂😅) Between alternating spouts of sunshines and miserable weather this week, I mainly stayed homebound and lazed around on my bed catching up on sleep 😴 (except for a couple of lunches outside with my mum.)
Following Tokyo 2020, this week I took a bit of inspirations from some of my family’s favourite Japanese ingredients. 😋 Chestnuts and sweet potatoes were some of the hot ticket items among my family growing up in Hong Kong!
After a week of slight limbo, it felt like it will be a nice change of scene as I am heading to the Scottish Highlands tomorrow. Fingers crossed 🤞 for nice weather and plenty of pleasant surprises ahead! 😆
These times in quarantine had really allowed me to sit down and reflect on a lot of things in my life. I do believe sometimes we do take things too easily for granted. I am even thankful just being able to sit on my bed now and watch TV most days. 😂 Lately, I have been in touch with my inner child self again and started picking up things I enjoyed doing when I was a kid, whether games or animations. I do miss those times back then. Sometimes, it’s just easier to be young and worry-free, don’t you think? ❤️
When I was younger, one of the things I was absolutely obsessed with was dinosaurs. 🦖🦕🦖🦕 (I am sure many of you here might feel the same as me! 😂) Literally any TV/movies/documentaries/books about dinosaurs I will be on it! (Disney’s Dinosaur back in 2000 was one of my favourite movies back then! 🎥 Don’t know how many of you remember that film? 🤔) And for any dinosaur fans out there, here is my Jurassic volcano chocolate cake surrounded with shortbread biscuit dinosaurs! 🌋🌴 Also gave me a chance to do my favourite caramel sugar work. 😉
And now I am enjoying sugar like every other child! 🤣🤣
