Marathoning

Don’t Forget to enter my giveaway!

(Australians only sorriiiiie!)

Ok… now I can continue my post 🙂


I just coined the word.

Jokes, everyone uses it, in fact there is no red squiggly line under it, but I’d like to believe I was one of the first. Because I use it so much now you know? imagination truly is a gift.

Anyways, so you all should be proud of me, because your small not-so-little baker girl is marathoning. That’s right, I have signed up for… one, two, three…. 5 different marathons! I know right??? I can’t even believe myself!

Happy Australia Day 2013!

GUYS! HAPPY *belated by one day* AUSTRALIA DAY 😀

My dad actually sent me the perfect email to put into this post. It’s a “You know you are a ‘straya’ if/when you… quiz” – Let’s see how much aussie blood you all really have running in you!

  1. You think “Woolloomooloo” is a perfectly reasonable name for a place.
    Actually yes, I do. Especially considering I recently discovered there is a town called Ozenkadnook in Victoria which means ‘very fat kangaroo’ in Aboriginal…
  2. You’re secretly proud of our killer wildlife.
    How can you not go all gooey at kangaroos and koalas and maybe not so much emus which are actually killer with their stares 😉

Happy Birthday TT 2012

Dear TT,

Damn dude, I wished I had seen your face when you saw your birthday present this year! But hope it was just a big a surprise in your fridge when you came home considering how hard you must have worked during the day no? 😉

I thought about using Oreos yet again in your baking this year, I mean, honestly, you are the cookie monster exclusive to Oreos b]ut I also know how indulgent you are when it comes to chocolate. It is a good thing don’t worry 😉

So this year, I decided to bring the king of chocolate into your cooking. And I think this ingredient, being the king, really reflects your personality. I mean honestly, is there anything you do badly? Let me see, let us make a list:

Birthday, Brownie, Crownie

You see the link? No? You will by the end of this post or my alias is not Choc Chip Uru 😉

Today is my friend, vous elle appelez (you call her) SM’s, 17th birthday. Oh my gosh, she is the first of us ALL (when I say us I mean my group :D) to turn 17. The big ONE-SEVEN. Am I getting confused with 18? No, I am most certainly not because the way we all see it, 12-16 are the fun teen years, 17 is bordering on *shudder* adulthood and then at 18… let’s not go there 😉

My Latest 3-Layer Distraction

Sometimes there are problems in your life. They are unexpected, out of the blue and you see your security starting to crumble a little. You don’t know what to do, how to act and how to face it because it might be a new problem, one you have never experienced before.

But sometimes you just can’t find it. You can search everywhere and try to convince yourself you have found that happy side but sometimes it is just too hard and you collapse under the strain. It is in these cases you must avoid the issue for a little bit of time. Calm yourself and let your passions overwhelm you so they can take you to a world away from reality, an ephemeral moment of peace and tranquillity before you are pulled away again.
