The Gingerbread man Project

It was 5 days before Christmas when the sudden idea to bake gingerbread men hit me. Alright, I liked the gingerbread men idea but not baking. Isn't baking for aunties with huge aprons and goes like, "Hey kids, who wants some cookies? It'll only be yours if you promise to be good like little Jimmy sitting all quiet under the tree. Alright kids?" Then the kids will go, "Yes auntie, we promise" with the mischievous look. When she enters the kitchen to collect the cookies, the kids ran towards little Jimmy, tied him upside down on the branches, sealed his lips and placed some spiders near him. The kids ran back just in time to collect their cookies while she exits the kitchen. " Here you go kids, promise to be good like Jim.. Jimmy?. Where's Jimmy? Is that Little Jimmy hanging on the branches?" asked the auntie. "That's him! He got bitten by a spider and now he's.. spiderman!! He's our neighbourhood supergeek! answered one of the kids.

hahaha, haha. Ha. Ahem. Alright, Get the picture?

Anyway, back to gingerbread man. It was a day before christmas eve when I got everything I needed laid on the table, got some friends to come over, got myself to read the recipes, steps to baking and that was magic began. Like, the spoon, knife and almost everything else will go missing after use. heh.

Duration:4 Hours
Time: 9am - 1pm

Is this pro or what?
The Drrrrrrr!!.. sound reminds me on how the dentist would dig for gold inside your mouth. Then the butter will go flying. Nice.

Oh ya, the mixture turned out powder-ish, not dough-ish. So much for pro-ness.

the self made mold.

Our finest creation. The big one was made by Ee Kiat.

Anyway, It had this bitter after taste which was horrible so, I decided to give it another shot at night. This time, with the help of my sister.

Second Attempt
Duration:5 hours
Time: 10pm - 3am

Looks good ehy, finally.

There you have it, the gingerbread tree. Multi racial community.

Gingerbread tree.

My effort didn't come to a waste. This time, It tasted like cookies. Real solid kick-ass cookies that could take you to heaven.

Oh well, baking was all fun, dirty, sticky and smelly but overall I pretty much enjoyed myself and the house was filled with the sweet aroma of cinnamon. Complements goes to all who helped out.

Merry Christmas and
a Happy New Year
to all.

Down South

Vivo City

Vivo City (singapore) is wicked, it's so freakin' big that it pushes your legs to its limits. Yes, it's pure torture to people like me who don't dig shopping. Damn, all those walking can really kill. Just if the government could invest a little more since they had already threw in big sums of money into tourism, they could actually build more travelators for lazy ass bums like me. Wouldn't that make shopping easier? lol. So, to all ministers of Trade and Industry. Go build more travelators everywhere. That's the key. Ha! Then everyone will grow fat thanks to burger king and lots of travelators. Besh la!

Come visit Singapore! We provide good services and sufficient travelators (for those lazy asses who complain alot) for your pleasure and comfort. Lazy ass.

That really brings out the Uniquely Singapore slogan.

Singapura ni, betul-betul unik la.

Toys "R" Us

Wheet! Toys "R" Us! THE Sweetest thing over there. It's BIG and frankly speaking, I could actually spend the whole day there. Because It is where I call it's home.

Damn, how I admire kids nowadays with high-tech amphibious remote control cars that travel on land and water, helicopters, etc. If my mum was there, ha! I'll be exactly like those kids crawling and screaming their lungs out on the floor filled with giraffes, begging my parents to buy me those exotic toys. Ha, exotic. Damn these kids are lucky. I only had like, budget made in China toys passed down from my brother. Mitsuboshi? What the hell.

Geoffrey The Giraffe

This makes me sigh

What if Im already grown up?


Nah, who cares.
Though I had to fight the spot
from the kids.

Catch my new comic sequel fighting badasses from
