Diary of a Lazy Blogger #24 : Random Bits of March
helloooo ! taking half day off school today so i shall take this opportunity to blog !
April’s already ending but so much happened in March that if i don’t blog about it i’ll feel incredibly guilty about it to myself hahaha
anyway , here’s my rest of March !
Vinn Kee came over to bake one day to prepare for our culinary contest !! (more updates on the contest in my future posts)
tried peanut butter and chocolate cookies as well as oat and raisin cookies and we both agreed that the oat one tasted better :D
packed some cookies for Amanda and gave it to her in this packaging !! idea came from Yee Lyn HAHAHA
dinner at Coffea Coffee with Amanda and her friend Er Yen !
and off to City Harvest Church for youth service ! it was my first time joining Amanda’s church for service and it was a fun experience but let’s just say that the way my church runs is much more different , so i probably will not be going to Amanda’s church frequently :X
my first and last KDU Sports’ Day (didn’t go last year hahaha) with my girls !!
GO GREEN HOUSE ! <3 especially cheer captain Melati , ripple tank CKY and paggie the sampat tan !!
with all the green beauties ! so proud of all my cheerleader friends because they worked so hard even though they didn’t win :'))))

Spaghetti Aglio Olio !
hey guys :D today’s post will be my very first cooking blog post ! everyone knows i love baking and i bake all the time … but recently i’ve started cooking too , mostly because my mom is busy (more like lazy) , so sometimes she forces me to take charge of dinner HAHA .
anyway , i’m a huge fan of spaghetti aglio olio , so one day i just decided to make that !
ta-dahh ! it really is pretty simple to make and what i love about cooking is that you don’t really have to have exact measurements , just do everything according to taste hahaha , unlike baking where everything has to be precise or you’ll screw up .
2 servings of pasta (half a box)
some bacon (or chicken or beef or whatever meat you prefer)
random herbs and spices (i don’t even know what i put in but as long as it works ! LOL)
Step 1 : chop up the bacon and mushrooms !
Step 2 : cook the pasta in salt water until al dente , then drain aside the pasta and reserve about one cup of salt water
Step 3 : fry the bacon in butter until crisp . set it aside
Step 4 : sauté the chopped garlic in olive oil until they turn golden brown
Step 5 : add the mushrooms and bacon !
Step 6 : add in the pasta and the reserved salt water and toss it around . then add in the chilli flakes (i used 3 packets from Domino’s HAHA) and add in random herbs and spices . don’t worry what herbs you put in because i’m sure it will all taste good in the end LOLOLOL . add more olive oil if it seems a little dry . my cooking is very contrast with my baking … in cooking i’m just like screw this screw that yolo
and you’re done !! add some fancy leaves to pattern a bit HAHAHA
and since i made dinner , my mom offered to make apple juice hahahaha
no idea why i decided to do a cooking tutorial , it seems so out of place in my blog hahahah , so here’s some baking !
made a no-bake blueberry cheesecake ! recipe here : http://pengskitchen.blogspot.com/2010/07/non-baked-oreo-cheesecake.html
modified the recipe a little of course , to make it blueberry . love how the blueberry seeped into the cheese part of the cake and gave it a slight purple touch :p
ending this post with a photo of me as usual HAHA
