How time flies!

School reopened this week. O_O I had an interim report and oral presentation for my final year project. In which I sucked so badly and couldn't answer 80% of the questions. (Thankfully, it was just an interim, meaning that I still have time to improve.)

I had been super busy, though. There were two parties just before school reopened, and one of it was my younger sis's 21st birthday party where I was in charge of most of the deco and baking the huge birthday cake.


The horror: A 6-layered rainbow cake which took me the entire day to bake and finish decorating. :O (Maybe I'll show you guys the insides after my elder sis, the photographer of the day, uploads her photos, haha.)

Okay, baking is fun. :) In fact, I got so excited about celebration cakes now and tried my hand at baking a tiramisu zuccotto for my boyfriend's mother's birthday, haha.


Baileys, hell yeah!

Confession: I dusted it with cocoa powder but it's way uglier, so I'm showing you guys this photo instead. :P

In other news, I haven't found an internship/part-time job yet. Nor a full-time job for post-graduation. :X

Also, my computer is refusing to boot up. :(

LOL! At least the birthday girl loved her cake. -^^-

Oh, the butterfly isn't as hard as it looks. (I haven't piped chocolate before this, and it still managed to come out pretty nicely. :)) I can't find the video which I first saw how to do it, so here are some useful links instead:

hahahaha! A giant lump of brown sugar actually sounds disgusting to me! *gag* XD

Sigh. It was okay yesterday, but failed me again today. :(

Yeah. Things look bad for the computer.

But they're so pretty and I'm so clumsy. :(

I'm throwing in the towel soon. If this goes on, I'm sending it for repairs. :(

hahaha, you can always keep trying! ;)

Well, at least now you've an idea of what it is that's wrong. Tech people hate being handed stuff with "it doesn't work!" "What part of it doesn't work?" "All of it!" (Of course, that could just be my dad, but this is what happens when you're in charge of a project and the client doesn't even know what to ask for.)

I can, but then I'd eat them, which is sort of defeating the purpose. Though, now that I think of it, that is the one single pretty food-related thing I could make in a dorm room. All I really need is a microwave and a fridge.

FYI

This is my LJ for personal stuff. Friend this if you are, well, a friend of mine. :D

However, since this is a community and can't be used to friend other LJs, I'll be friending you back with collidingwithme. Complicated, eh? :P
