And So It Begins… With A Giveaway (Closed)

So, here I am again, feeling a bit sheepish that I am blogging when I have been ignoring all your gorgeous posts for what? A week and a half?

I would say ‘oops’ and cover my mouth with my hands all Marilyn Monroe style and pretend innocence, but it is just not that situation! 😛

You guys know that I graduated, and was rather thrilled with it. And then you found out for some obscure reasons, my finals at school were not my finals per se, because I have another set of exams now. #whatisblogging

I promise you all, it seems like exams are all I ever do, but these are for real, my final exams ever. For 4 months. For high school. Despite the fact that I am taking quite few holidays after I finish, I will be all yours. Soon my darlings… so soon!

4th November. Remember that. 😀

So on Monday, my final exams begin (On one day, I have 2 exams in one day 6 hours in one day, and my hand will fall off, I guarantee it :P)

I am already feeling the euphoria, the rush of chucking away sheets (You’ll see what I mean when I post again!) but no, let it begin. Like Jordin Sparks says, ‘Take one step at a time, there’s no need to rush‘ (Lies, I want to rush my butt off!) 😉

Lotsa Choc-Chip Love

Before I begin this post, I would just like to send my love and prayers to those affected in Oklahoma and anyone who has in any way, been touched by this terrible natural disaster. My thought are with you and please know that the world is behind you to support and send aid through any possible means.

Here are some links to donate and help families who have lost their loved ones, their homes and their livelihoods. 

******************************************

I think today, writing is definitely not on my agenda. After fixing up 2 essays and writing another one, can you blame me?

Manic Mania!

Do you all have those days where you become absolutely ob-sess-ed with something. You see it everywhere you go, you think about it and then dream about it as well?

Well, last post, I told you I was reading Anna Karenina.
It’s a novel about a love story. Sounds pretty average right? NO! It is so much more than a love story…

 

Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich

Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich

Written by Leo Tolstoy, who is one of the most brilliant writers in history, it is the tragedy of one married woman who discovers the emptiness of her life after finding immediate lust and love. Leading to an adulterous affair, she continues to try and still be part of her autocratic and judgmental Russian society, while battling her internal demons, a poisonous mixture of jealousy and depression egged on by morphine.

Interweave this story with another tale of a philosophically minded man whose discovery of love leads to confusion and questioning, you get a novel which so intricately explores the human condition. Personally, I also found Tolstoy’s descriptions to be a criticism on society’s animalistic tendency for ‘acting as a pack’. Anna is condemned for her actions by all of her class, which truly speaks out about how narrow-minded and opinionated a group can be.

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 😉

Chocolate Chip Baking Week 10: Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is warning: For those looking for another ice cream machine using, creamy, dreamy dessert in this post, let me promptly link you to here. For those looking for a recipe that is quite out of the ordinary, please stay and read on 🙂 When I found this recipe on Picky Palate, I was intrigued for sure but definitely not surprised since fabulous food blogger Jenny comes up with random, delicious creations all the time! Looking through this recipe, she basically omitted some sugar and purposely lacked some liquid-y ingredients in order to make way for the batter to include a nice big heap of ice cream in it. Yes, imagine eating cool and refreshing and creamy ice cream but in dough form. 319Sounds heavenly? Tastes heavenly – something I should know by the many spoonfuls small tastes I sneaked throughout the stirring and mixing process. Continue reading
