I haven't posted for almost a month, so it's been quite a while. I have been baking but nowadays, I've become a little lazy to photograph it, and since it's winter here in Australia, it get darks pretty early! But anyway, I made Averie cooks apple cheesecake bar without the salted caramel sauce (because that failed), and it had the most incredible cheesecake base. I'll definitely have to make that again one day! I also made Sally's baking addiction lemon cheesecake bars. It's more convenient to bake cheesecakes in square tins, and I don't even bake them in a water bath. Plus, it's very portable, so cheesecake bars are a great dessert to bring to parties etc.

Anyway, I wrote this piece for the Huffington Post. See, I'm rather ashamed that I can't speak Mandarin or Cantonese fluently. Sometimes I'll have to mix Cantonese and Mandarin if I need to talk to someone who doesn't know English.. I was forced to attend Chinese school, and I suppose, just being that little ignorant girl, I didn't take advantage of it. I guess I was sort of influenced by culture and peers in Australia, and I also went to a primary school where I was quite literally the only Malaysian there.

But anyway, now I'm older and I understand things better. All it took was one trip to Beijing to see Uncle D & Aunty M and that really gave me a reality check that Chinese, let alone any foreign language is extremely useful. I'm hoping to study Mandarin during university or sometime in the near future. So go ahead and read it, and feel free to let me know your thoughts!

ALSO I HAVE A TUMBLR for photography and other things..

    1. Thank you Erica :) That means a lot coming from you, you have such a beautiful blog and a great writer! Yeah I know, and sometimes I've been so lazy to the point of just not photographing it. Definitely blogger guilt ;)
