Gingerbread House?

Alright, today is not my day! I'm messed up pretty much of things from pizza dough to gingerbread house. I spent my whole afternoon standing in front of the table make this and that. First of all, my brunch. I was decided to make my own pizza today. I was looked up for the dough recipe (no knead pizza dough), i made it. I was so confident that it will make my pizza really great. And... yes, it was a total failed. The dough was very wet and sticky. I couldn't even form it into a dough and roll it up into round shape. The texture is pretty dense and chewy. Huh... damn mess. Well, i can't blame for the recipe. It was me who messed up by adding too much of water.

 Hmm? what? where's the photo? Look, after i waking up from bed, i straight prepare and cooked the filling(pizza). I didn't even eat a thing. So, in that situation, i am pretty much hungry and when i conscious about the photo, i had already it. screw it! By the way, it was nothing good to look at it though. It just a fuck up pizza. 

And after having my "Delicious" brunch, is time to prepare the ingredient to decorate my very own gingerbread house. I buy every biscuit that i think it can be my decoration. Some expensive, some cheap like Pocky(double chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream), oreo and some other local brand mini chocolate. In the end, the only biscuit i used was the double chocolate Pocky and the mini chocolate. Well, for a sweet tooth like me, i wouldn't be a waste. I'll just eat up anyway. 



At this angle, it doesn't seem bad right? But if i turn to another way round, it was horrible and awful.

Front

Right Side

Left Side

And the last, Back Side. 

After i finish decorate this thing here, i was wondering how can i be this bad at baking and decorating?The pictures i took aren't too bad at all. But it was just the angle. I've missed the shot where the crack side is. Oh man, the process of making this is killing me, especially the window. My first idea was to use orange candy, melt it and pour to the windows there. However, it became solid very fast. So, i stop using it and change it to jelly. One thing, though, JELLY you make my cookies become soggy! (Duh! it supposes to be like this.) Since i baking myself the cookies, it was kinda off of the measure. All i do was just covered up with white chocolate( excessively).  Other than that, i was pretty much satisfying with the roof. It ain't bad, isn't it? Just right about i took the picture i want, the next thing, i ......

Smash It and Eat It!

  *I say it is a gingerbread house but, the cookies doesn't contain any spices. It just a normal chocolate cookie. That's all.

Flashback Graduation Day

On 26 November 2016, I was officially graduated. That day, i thought i will be very depressed because i did no attend the ceremony. I was not that very depressed but felt regretting. I'm the one who signs for not attend the ceremony but deep inside i wish to attend. Wearing the graduation gown and taking photos with my friends (which were fighting along with me these 4 years in the college.) The one and only one photo that  will be  taken together and i did not attend. 

Going back to the previous day before i  signed up for not attend the ceremony, because i felt so low self-esteem at that time. Everyone is getting jobs, moving on in their life. As for me, I felt so useless. Not getting a job, not doing anything by just laying around in my room for exactly half of the year. With these, i could not face them. As a matter of fact, i was really scared they asked me some question about my life. 'How's going?', 'Have you work yet?', 'What are you doing right now?' ...... These questions, i could not answer them. And that's how i missed the chance. Again, one and only one graduation photo. After a few days of the graduation, they made a gathering. Throughout the gathering, all i said was not all bullshitting but it just something that made me feel better. I did not lie about the i still not work yet and saying i'm learning video editing and stuff. That's kinda true but the real reason was not about learning things. Is was all because my stress and emotional thinking that stop me from moving on. I just can't tell them. Even now, nobody knows how i actual feel. By looking their facial expression, i know they look down on me. I know they think of me "Useless" and unrealistic thinking. And...yea, i feel that too... 

For the past few months, i feel like i am getting social anxiety.  The feeling of 'hatred' on people and the thought of people how they think of me. Until now i still feel that. However, i  do talk to a friend before, it seems like she doesn't believe me. Am i overthinking?  The feeling of frightening of people and crowd, nobody could understand. Do i... 
As days goes by day, i don't even know anymore. The feel of fear and people had made me this decision. And now, i'm regretting. Sorry for the off topic. Let's move on to the cake as shown below.



At the same day, i tried to make a whole strawberry shortcake. The appearance seems ok but the sponge cake and the whipped cream were actually a big failed. It still edible though. The sponge cake is kinda deflated during fold in the process, so the cake was so rough and dry. So was the whipped cream. I just don't understand how to stabilize the whipped cream and not being runny. And always, i couldn't get the consistency that i want. I had used the gelatine recipe but still, it melt so quick once you take it out from the fridge. I was planning the decorated the cake with some whipped cream, But, it seems failed. The taste overall is ok, and yet it did not meet my expectations.

Mcdonald's Groovy Lime

All i'm gonna say, Mcdonald's what happen to your ice-cream these days? The syrup thing is not that very match with the vanilla ice-cream. I mean the vanilla ice-cream itself is really good and tasty, but the syrup thing is kinda ruining the overall taste. Like this key lime syrup, i must say, it tastes like dishwashing liquid. That's it. WTF!? Zesty taste....neh...but still feel a bit tanginess in it. Would i purchase again? No. There is one thing i would like to recommend which is Hershey's chocolate sundae with peanut butter caramel sauce/ sea salt caramel sauce. And that i would purchase over and over again.

Migakamikagami [御我神的镜子(ミガカミカガミ)]

I must say this game is really freaked me out! The graphics and also the soundtrack. Every time i play the game i felt so thrilled and it gave me goosebump all the way through the end of the game. I never know i can't handle this game. This is just too bloody, gore and horrify. Sometimes it jumpscare you. If you ever play this just be careful of those jumpscares, it always gets me. And another thing, i really suck at chasing and puzzles. It took me like hours to guess and died so many time just so to move on. Well, it  is a good game indeed,  really. I am really recommended you play this game if you are brave as me! Especially when there are only 2 ends. ( Just so, i wouldn't replay again to get all the endings)

在这我只能告诉你,如果你有胆的话(像我)就试玩这款游戏。血腥及恐怖游戏不是没看过。可是,当自己亲身去玩的时候就不同说法了。这游戏真的起鸡皮疙瘩,从头到尾都惊心吊胆的。偶尔趁你一个不注意的时候恐怖画面会跳出来,这真的各种脏话都飙出来。(虽然我只说“妈的”。) 不过这游戏真超恐怖的说!恐怖归恐怖,我觉得这款游戏还蛮好玩的。剧情还不错。虽说是百合,可是我倒是觉得友谊深而已。在怎么说,你不玩你怎么知道呢?另一个选项,你可以去看Youtuber实况。

Vegan but Not vegan

First of all, im Not Vegan. Why I choose these Vegan recipe? It just simply seems healthy. Besides, my brother cant eats any egg contained food, and every time im baking something, he just cant eat. It's kinda depressing, though. So,eventually to bake something Not contain any egg recipe, it is the only way to search for Vegan food.
At first, im really doubt about the taste and texture of Vegan food. But in the end, it doesnt taste bad at all.
Since, im Not a Vegan person. So I found tht baking a Vegan dessert is kinda hard for me. There are a lot of ingredients I dont recognise or I dont hav any of it. Thus, by making this recipe, I would say half Vegan, and half Not.





Black Bean Chocolate Brownies
Ingredients:
250g black bean (after drained and rinsed)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
40g quick oats
1/4tsp salt
70g honey/ any sugar
40g melted butter/vegetable oil 
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
30ml water
chocolate chips(optional)

Steps:
  1. Preheat oven to 180`C. Prepare and place parchment paper/ aluminum foil into a square pan/ any baking pan.
  2. Put all ingredients into a blender except chocolate chips.
  3. Blend until smooth. Then pour out the batter then fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Pour into the baking pan and bake for 20-25 mins.(or maybe longer)
  5. Once done baking, let it cool in the pan for at least 10 mins before cutting them.



Cashews Chocolate Cheesecake
Ingredients:
150g raw cashews
4tbsp honey
3tbsp cocoa powder
1/8tsp salt
1/2tsp vanilla extract
3tbsp melted butter/coconut oil
50ml water
some oreo 

Steps:
  1. Blend all ingredients into smooth paste
  2. Pour the paste into a container. Oreo layer on top of the paste. (Depends on what crust you want.)
  3. Fridge into the freezer for 4 hours.
  4. Before slicing the cake, take it out at room temperature for 2-3 minutes. It just softens a bit so that it can slice easily.

Arashi portrait [My Drawing]


Before showing you my drawing, first of all, i must admit my drawing isn't that good. I don't know what motivation makes me draw them but, i just feel like to.And here it are they:

Sakurai Sho

So, Sho-kun i'm sorry. This is kinda horrible.

Omurice with Self-made Tomato Sauce [no recipe]

Daily Lunch



In cooking, i don't really follow the recipe. For me it just about how it taste. I literally think of anything i can put and just throw into the pan. If too salt, just add sugar. And of course, it must depend on the situation. It is fun when you cook while eating it. No...i mean tasting it. :p

Basically, it's just rice, vegetable,  sausage and ketchup. For flavor just add in salt, black pepper and sugar for tasting. 
Then, the omelet (the Japanese version) is the hardest thing to cook it perfect. I don't have a non-stick pan so, i try to heat the pan and oil. Remove the excessive oil, then pour the egg mixture and cook it over low heat. Uhh...the perfect oval shape is ruined as i try to flip it. In the end, it just scrambles egg.  
As for the tomato sauce, just cut the tomato into small pieces, then throw into a small pan and cook until soft. Then i pour some vinegar, a teaspoon of each (any vinegar i have in my house), salt, black pepper, dry oregano and sugar. Smash the tomato as you cook. And wala~ there you have it, simple tomato sauce. 

With just this, it's not satisfied me. What's more adding a slice of cheese on top of the rice is heavenly good!

我有存在价值吗?

我想说,
我是不是很难沟通,很难相处?
要不然为什么每次出去你们都机不离身?

感觉里面的人或东西比较重要。
那么为什么又要找我出来?
倒不如一开始就不要找我算了。

每次(也不是每次但几乎)跟你们出去都觉得自己很透明。
觉得很不受尊重!
你说手机重要还是你隔壁的人比较重要?

我不是在寻找男朋友,我只是想找个朋友出来逛逛街聊聊天而已。
很难吗?
对你们来说,我那么透明,那么不重要?还是我只是个不显眼的路人旁?

看来也是啦,可能我自己看不到的‘难相处’,‘难沟通’ 我自己不知道。

嗯,怪人一个的我也不能怪他们。
只能说,我不适合当朋友吧。
最后,我还是好好的自己一个人独自相处。
至少不用那么烦恼。

一个人,万岁!

Basic Sponge Cake- Experiment [n times]

I've been tried and experiment on how to beat the whole egg and without deflated when folding in flour and liquid. And always, FAILED. There always large bubbles and crusty outside. I just don't know why and how. I've also followed the recipe given, and still failed or not the sponge cake i want. I just don't understand why my egg doesn't reach the ribbon stage no matter how long i beat (maybe i did not beat long enough?).  With so many times by experiment this recipe, and there it is, i am not say it perfect but at least it almost reach what i expected.




Ingredients:
2 eggs
50g sugar
50g low flour
25ml milk (i use soymilk this time)
10g oil

Steps:

  1. Prepare a pot of simmering water.
  2. Preheat oven to 160`C, line parchment paper into a 6-ince round baking pan.
  3. Use double boiler method, in low heat warm the eggs + sugar, beat the eggs until sugar dissolve.(Do not use boiling water as it will cook the egg easily)
  4. Then, take out from the simmering water, continuously beat the egg until pale white,double in size and reach the ribbon stage. (*I always messed up in this step)
  5. Gently fold in sifted flour until it incorporated completely.
  6. Scope a dollop of the batter into a small bowl with milk + oil and mix thoroughly.
  7. After that, gently pour back into the batter and fold until combined.
  8. Pour the batter into baking pan and put into the oven bake for about 22-25mins (for the last 2-4 mins i turn to upper heat for browning the top).
  9. *(In this step, I'm not sure should i invert the cake to cool or let it cool in the pan for 15mins then take it out and let it cool completely. But this time, i invert the baking pan for at least 15-20 mins then take out to let it cool. --maybe will try it on other time)
*It still deflated a little, maybe i beat the egg not long enough. 
- could try beat longer.

Mcdonald's Coconut Desserts

According to their website, it's been updated on November 2,2016. Before that, i always followed the page/ website whether when will Mcdonald's come out with new products. For just unfollowed a while, i unintentionally saw the product came out as when i accompanied my friend eat Mcdonalds yesterday. I was not prepared to eat any food when i was out yesterday as i had eaten my lunch. Seeing the new products come out and i tell myself i gotta to try it out.

Coconut Caramel Sundae

Coconut Pie

First of all, the coconut caramel sundae is not my favorite. The caramel dosesn't taste like caramel nor gula melaka. For me it just a thickened brown sugar syrup, it doesn't have a strong gula melaka taste. On top of that, it sprinkles with some premade coconut flakes. The combination of vanilla ice-cream and the coconut flakes + caramel is not that really match though. 2 out of 10 if you want me to rate.

Next, the coconut pie tastes a lot better than the coconut caramel sundae. The filling which is actually contained with real coconut flesh. Practically, I was expected it only contains with gluey sugar 'paste' with coconut jelly, but it was not. The taste slightly bland, not that sweet. The crust of the pie with the coconut flesh is tasted great, i will give it 7 out of 10. If you want me comparing among with other pie, Taro pie is my favorite. 

*Not sponsored by Mcdonald's, i just want to post my opinion only.

RPG- Mukan Kyukou [夢間急行] chinese ver.

  I had downloaded this game for about a month now. In between i tried to play to achieve the real ending but could not. It is very annoying me. I tried so many times, in the end, it still came out with the bad end/not the true ending. I was very frustrated and leave the game for a month. There is time i even wanted to just delete the game and watch other players played the real ending. Then, i did not do so and try to play it one more time. And there it is. I finally get to play the ending i want! Yes! i'm not sure how many ending there are but i manage to get 2 different endings. I got the murderer which i think is the true end but if there is another bad end i might like to play so. But once again, i might not. I'm just too lazy to play it all over again (even though the game isn't that long). Anyway, i'm just glad i break through the game and finally able to delete the game. I'm not sure if there is an English version, but if anyone who understand Chinese could give this a try.

Arashi- [Are You Happy?] Don't You Get It

I really like this style of PV. Look at them seem so fun. It would be weird if you see me when i am watching this. Just laugh throughout the video like 傻笑. A very catch song. Every time watching this pv, it just make me feels that they are so close, like a very close friend. What i am hope right now is if someone could able to  post the pv making. I bet it would be extremely funny. 










Who ever watch the video be sure to watch until the end. This scene is pretty funny.
