Home Made Fluffy Bread Bowl

Tuesday 28 April 2020: Today marks another one of my impromptu spontaneous bakes! I was not planning on making anything/ doing any baking because it's the first week of school since the mid semester break ended and I have more work to do (lectures, tutorials, quizzes and my yet-to-complete assignments which are never ending). But…

Challah Aqua Faba Bread Making: The Experience

Friday 24 April 2020: To mark the ending of my mid-semester break, I decided to embark on one last big major bake before school starts once more and I no longer have the luxury of spending hours in the kitchen. Since the start of the holidays, I planned to make Challah. I can't remember where…

My Mid-sem Break/Stay Home Shenanigans

It's been a long time since I found the time to sit down with my laptop and let my thoughts run free, let my fingers fly across the keyboard. Which is quite ironic, considering how it's currently my 2-week mid semester break; yet I'm writing less than I used to when school was still ongoing.…

Of Staying At Home: Family Friction

Wednesday 15 April 2020: Todays marks the end of 1 week since I came back home after my quarantine in a separate apartment. Living in a familiar, comfortable, spacious area definitely has its perks - I get to move about freely and have ample space to exercise, I have a comfy bed to curl up…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 14)

Tuesday 07 April 2020: It's the last official day of our 2 week stay home notice! We initially thought that this meant we could only step out of the flat at the stroke of midnight, but recently there's been a change of regulations - this means that at 12 NOON ... we are FREE!!! This…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Days 12 and 13)

Sunday 05 April 2020: Yet another productive day today! Finally finished the second of my assignment - a reflective piece that explores the determinants of food choice. Really enjoying this particular module, but as always, learning and actually writing essays are 2 very different things. Had writer's block for this essay one too many times,…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Days 10 and 11)

Decided to combine days 10 and 11 together because I was too caught up with eating on day 10 and hence did not manage to squeeze in time to write an update ooopsie! Here I am now, the night of day 11, trying real hard to recall what I did yesterday... Friday 03 April 2020…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 9)

6:57AM Once again the body clock strikes again. I'm really amazed at how accurate this is, I mean it's such a weird timing to wake up to pee? Managed to fall into a light sleep after the trip to the bathroom though. 8:00AM Properly woke up this time round, and I'm feeling so much better…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 8)

6:57AM This is the third time I've woken up at this timing because of my bladder's urge to relieve itself. I guess internal circadian rhythms are really a thing - I don't even have to set an alarm in the mornings anymore, my body just wakes up automatically and heads for the toilet first thing…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 7)

Tuesday 31 March 2020: It's the halfway mark of our stay home notice! Time is passing slowly yet quickly at the same time - can't believe it's been a week since I came back to Singapore. I'm slowly settling into a new sort of routine in this small apartment. It also feels like I'm living…
