Nigella Lawson's Caramel Croissant Pudding
Last Saturday I got three left-over butter croissants from breakfast and I know that if I didn’t eat them right away on the day, they’re just going to be stale and I will have to throw them away. So I googled some croissant pudding recipe and found one croissant pudding recipe from none other than the Queen of Food Porn, Nigella Lawson. It’s very easy and it tastes heavenly! I...
FAQ - Hanoi for Dummies (Part 2 - Eat, drink and...
So I skip the whole chapter about all the tourist attractions you could go, along with all the guest houses or hotels you could stay in. There are plenty of those in Hanoi, and you proud travelers are surely smart enough to use Google or Lonely Planet. Besides, this is supposed to be an insider (yet outsider, I’m not Vietnamese, you see) insights of the city, so I’ll answer those sort...
The Marvelous Misadventure of the Twosome Klutz #3
Him: Just got a message from my friend. His wife is kidnapping their kid, of two years old, and is nowhere to be found.
Me: Hey is it this guy you told me before, who was having financial problems and had to give up the other kid he has for adoption?
Me: That's so sad. But I sorta could understand his wife's decision, you know. I think it's maternal instinct, you'd do anything to protect your baby.
Him: What? Kidnapping the baby like that? I don't think it's right.
Me: Well he can't support the baby, and she's afraid that he's gonna give this one for adoption again. Can't really blame her. As a matter of fact, I think this is the perfect example why people need license to procreate.
Him: Yeah, and how exactly you'd measure which one would be legit to have the license and which one wouldn't?
Me: How do you think they do it for adoption process? Background check, financial check, yadda yadda, the system's already there.
Him: It's not that simple, and even if it works, what are you gonna do to people who procreate without license?
Me: Well, that means they had violated the law. And they shall be punished. Hard. Deterrent, baby. Deterrent.
Him: You sound like a conservative redneck.
Me: I'm not bleeding-heart.
Me: No, seriously.
Him: Well good, because I thought you finished your period a week ago.
Me: HEART, baby! Not HARD! O_O

Smoked Bacon Casserole
This is my first solo-baking experience, and by that I mean, I did everything by myself without any help from the boyfriend. Now now, for those of you who know me, you know for sure that there are two things in this world that I’m disastrous with, the first one being anything related to maps and direction, the second one being anything related to cooking, baking and whatnot. The only thing I...

Him: *coming back from work* Hey babe! Had a wonderful day today?
Him: Hey what's wrong? You look... disturbed...

Me: I came back home today and found Lola, Potato, the pug, scavenging the trash can in our washroom...
Me: SHE WAS EATING MY GOD DAMN USED TAMPONS!
It was a lazy Sunday loop and we were just doing nothing but watching a couple of movies when he got into his A-ha moments. “Let’s bake today!” “Chocolate chips?” “Naaah, we did it already.” “Brownies?” “No. Something new.” “Pie! We’ve never baked a pie!” “Perfecto! Do you know how to do it?” ...

Me: *coming back from work* Hi baby! How ya doin? Kisses?
Him: *cheerful shout from inside the toilet* Great, baby! But you gotta wait a bit before the kiss though, I gotta make myself puke because I just mistakenly swallowed the Listerine.
