  Baking Macarons Ver 2.0

before you start reading , i suggest you read this post first . hahahah . and to those of you who have already read it before , i pray you forget that image soon enough . :p

done reading ? okay .

as you can see macarons aren’t really my strong point . cupcakes and whole cakes and cookies – fine . but when it comes to macarons … heh ..

 

anyway , call me crazy but i decided to give baking macarons another shot ! and since finals are over now , i have the tendency to skip school :p and with that , comes the urge to bake .

 

for a few days i was dying to bake macarons and today i finally did !! had to go through a lot of trouble to get the almond meal though D: woke up at 9.30 and walked to ICCA , the biggest baking supplies shop near Giza … only to find out they didn’t have almond meal … only hazelnut meal D: so i headed over to my second choice , City Baker’s , but they too didn’t have it FML x9999 . then i went over to Mom’s Bakery Bits … BUT THEY WERE UNDER RENOVATION .

GIZA WAS MY FINAL HOPE , AND BLESS THEIR SOULS , THEY HAD ALMOND MEAL !!!!!!! ASDFGHJKL;

 

so off i went in the sweltering sun and back home to my comfort zone YAY .

 

by the way this is the recipe i used ! http://foodnouveau.com/2010/03/destinations/europe/france/how-to-make-macarons-a-detailed-illustrated-step-by-step-recipe/

image

 

and lets start !

DSC_3902
as usual , my ingredients pic haha

 

DSC_3900 DSC_3901
can we all just take a moment to admire my egg-yolk-separating skills ? LOOK AT IT JUST LOOK AT IT !!! IT’S PERF :'))))

 

DSC_3903
Step 1 is to sift the almond meal and icing sugar and boy this took forever that i almost gave up …

 

DSC_3904
done sifting !

 

DSC_3905
the beaten egg whites + castor sugar !! omg it was so fun to whisk it and watch it all come together into the stiff peaks . :D

 

i also coloured the egg whites + sugar pink !!! sooo pretty *w*

DSC_3906
mixing the ingredients together !!

 

DSC_3907 
unfortunately i left the egg whites out for too long before mixing it with the almond meal / overbeaten the mixture so my batter was kinda runny :(((

 

DSC_3908
it wouldn’t pipe very well hence the weird shapes and sizes :X

 

left it to cool and …

DSC_3909
bake !!!

 

while waiting for them to bake i lurked around insta for awhile ..

1390477_10201663517502187_1559924743_n
mitosis macarons !!!! HAHAHAH REMINDED ME OF MY MITOSIS COOKIES

 

1390477_10201663517462186_333336338_n
AND THIS !!! HAHAHAHA SO SIMILIAR TO MY FIRST ATTEMPT :P well i guess i’m not the only one who sucks in baking macarons ^^

 

DSC_3911  DSC_3910
and done !

DSC_3912
unfortunately i did another mistake again … i misread the recipe and only baked it for 10 mins so most of them were undercooked when i tried to remove them D:

 

DSC_3914 DSC_3913
managed to salvage a few and sandwiched them with Nutella ! yumz :9

 

DSC_3915
put the rest of the crumbs in a cup and ate it plaing with Nutella … oh the calories .

 

DSC_3916
well obviously my macarons are still far from perfect but it’s okay , its already much much better than my previous attempt and for that i am already sooo grateful T___T

 

will definitely give it a go again soon , as i now know what went wrong . HEHEHEH CAN’T WAIT !!! I VOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT MACARONS !

 

to make up for my semi-failure this time , here are some cakes i baked in school in conjunction with our interclass culinary competitions !!

1424294_10201663805389384_1382457435_n 1383993_10201663805509387_640431360_n
chocolate cake !! didn’t have much time to decorate it due to the time constrain D:

 


1431_10201663792669066_90190965_n
brownies and ice-cream !! heheheh

 

since the culinary competition required us to cook every single day + provide our own ingredients for 4 weeks in a row (talk about crazy) , our class decided to quit it after one week cos it was too damn hectic , and frankly , none of us are that dedicated to going to school either hahah :p

 

ok see you guys soon !

  Weekend Getaway to Melaka

isit Melaka or Malacca ?? hahaha idk . anyway , for those of you who do not know , Melaka is my mom’s hometown and i was also born there , so it’s no surprise that a lot of my relatives come from there – even those i do not know of .

 

so last weekend i was dragged to a wedding in Melaka . a wedding of a relative i do not know of , and does not know of me either hahaha . i’m pretty sure a lot of you have experienced this before : attending a wedding where you don’t even know the bride and groom and yet you are forced to attend it .

emoji
i swear when i become a parent next time , i will not force my children to attend my uncle’s cousin’s daughter’s wedding . and when my children get married , i will not force them to invite my dad’s cousin’s wife’s daughter . they will have the freedom to invite who they don’t want or want . NOTE TO SELF , FUTURE WANCHI .

seriously , i can’t stand being forced into things i don’t want to do . but since my mom bribed me into this , i have no choice but to oblige T____T so off i go to Melaka …

 

DSC_3882 DSC_3881
OOTD for the wedding !! had my hair done at a salon , sponsored by my lovely uncle ! in exchange for his sponsorship , i had to accompany him for tea , and i gladly did it ahahahah

 

65614_10201630692321578_1693998463_n
and a collage of my useless selfies ahahaa . for those of you loser anons on ask.fm remarking on how i used to say i don’t know how to put on makeup and now i do ,

here’s what i have to say for you : not knowing how to put on makeup in the past doesn’t mean i can’t learn right ? based on your theory , you shouldn’t even go to school because you don’t know what you haven’t learnt yet . and since you say that about me putting on makeup , next time you pass a test , you should ask yourself “i thought you didn’t know what biology was , look at you now , passing a test ??!” . based on your stupid theory that nobody should learn what they didn’t know how to do in the past , babies shouldn’t even learn to walk , scientists shouldn’t even find the cure to cancer etc etc , simply because the “said they didn’t know how to in the past” . good luck advancing in life then , anon .

 

OK END OF RANT . MOVING ON .

shameless OOTD shot in the hotel toilet hahahah

 

and then it was an endless chain of meeting my mom’s relatives whom i never knew about and hearing them talk about how big i’ve gotten even though i have no memory of them . but it was alright and the food was good and my favourite part was …
DSC_3899
they had a photobooth where you could have your picture taken and printed out rightaway like the one at Melati’s Sweet Sixteen !! since i didn’t have a chance at it at Melati’s party , i jumped at the opportunity at this one haha . as you can see i shamelessly took one on my own :p and the other one is with my mom but she doesn’t want her face on my blog :(

 

the next day we took a little tour around Jonker Street , since the hotel we were staying at was around that area :)

DSC_3897
spot the stone of Jonker Walk !!

 

DSC_3896 DSC_3895
and the famous red clock tower and church … which was under construction haha .

 

DSC_3886
walked around a little … lots of streets full of old people selling antiques on the road , although most of them looked like priceless junk to me :/

 

DSC_3883 DSC_3885
heritage buildings which also weren’t much to see , since i come from Penang :p

 

DSC_3884
sneaked an OOTD shot while browsing a souvenir shop ahahahha

 


DSC_3892
*

it was getting pretty hot during the day so we stopped somewhere to have some shaved ice and curry noodles ! yumzzz :9

DSC_3887DSC_3890  DSC_3889
the shaved ice / ice kacang was pretty meh :/ but the curry noodles was super yummy ! trust me when i say its yummy , cos i’m not much of a spicy food person :p

 

DSC_3893

DSC_3894DSC_3898
