My first post in 2014

Happy New Year 2014, folks. Though I am not so active in blog sphere for the past six months, I really appreciate you folks for continue dropping by my blog, be it leaving me comments or being silent. I apologize for not visiting your blogs.

My every New Year resolution is still losing weight. Other than this, I wish that I can stay easy and active as ever, I can have more patient in everything I do, and I also can in better control of my temper. In short, I just want to be HAPPY. Muahahahah!

Since I am only writing blog once or twice a month, I better summarize everything in one post. Ok, today I actually want to share the food that we (the girls and I) cooked and baked in December.

1. Colorful glutinous rice balls with orange sweet potatoes in brown sugar ginger syrup
This was actually cooked by my MIL, the girls and I helped in shaping the balls. I must not forget to mention, the sweet potatoes were prepared by me. Slurp! 
2. Christmas M&M cookies
I always wanted to do something special on Christmas. I worked on Christmas day this year. These M&M cookies was the simplest which we could do on Christmas eve. 
3. Colorful glutinous rice balls in clear syrup.
The girls did not get enough of Tong Yuen and bugged me for more. 

All colors are natural except the pink one. Hey! We all pee-ed pink urine on the next day. Yerr...
4. New Year butter cookies
These were the second attempt of my girls in piping the butter cookies. The result is so amazing. 

The stupid oven didn't perform well, or the stupid baker didn't adjust the temperature well, you say?
5. Spaghetti Carbonara
My first attempt to use white sauce instead of the most commonly used tomatoes sauce. My family like it. 
6. Healthy oatmeal banana chocolate chips cookie bites.
This bake needs 3 ingredients, 1 cup quick oats, 2 very ripe bananas, and  1/2 cup chocolate chips. Bake 15 minuites in temperature 170C. Healthy and yummy, I must say. 
Once again, I wish all of you stay happy, rise up, start fresh, see the bright opportunity in each new day.
