I'm so tired right now! Right now I'm having a week of spring break and it's been a blast. I'm having so much fun just relaxing and not worrying about school...I should be studying for my AP's though, maybe in a few days. Anyway, today I woke up, rode my bike to work, came back home, ate lunch, went shopping, baked a sponge cake, and had a dinner cooked by my grandma with my extended family. At the dinner, I played wii at my cousins' house and I had so much fun. I can't believe it's already Wednesday though. Only a few more days of break is left!!
College and these past few weeks
These past few weeks I haven't been blogging as much, but I'm going to blog more now I think. I have way too many half-written backlogs. Recently, I just got all my decisions from colleges and I know where I'm going to go now. Although it wasn't my first choice and I was a bit disappointed when I got rejected to my top choice, I'm also thankful that I was rejected from my top choice school. Because now, the school that I'm going to go to is closer to home and if I wanted to, I can visit home every weekend to see my family (maybe even do a bit of baking :D) While waiting for the decisions, I wasn't worried because I knew everything was in God's hands and that He would take care of everything for me. :D Even if I got rejected from this one school, a few years later when I look back I will see what a great decision it was for me to go to the other school.
I am so behind in blogging. I am baking much faster than I can post. Here's a "glimpse" of what I still have to post about:
giant double chocolate chip cookies
chocolate layer cake
cinnamon swirl bread
and a few more...
I also apologize for not posting the recipe for my mom's taro nian gao. After posting the first few nian gao recipes, too much time passed and I forgot how she made it. :/ I'll post it up one day, hopefully, when I get the correct recipe and better pictures.
Today is my blog's first b-day! I never knew blogging could be so fun. It all started when I first discovered a blog one day when I was just searching for a recipe. Discovering one blog slowly led to discovering another blog and another one. After a while, I decided that I should make my own blog too. :) I am so glad I did that. Now because of my blog, I have been able to make many friends among the blogging community. Thank you everyone for supporting me. :) I have so much to learn from everyone. I hope I can still update this blog frequently in college.
Since it's already spring, I want to share pictures of the flowers in my backyard.
I also have these flowers in my backyard, but my friend "K" dropped by one day and gave me these flowers. She made my day! :)
These are called wisteria and they only bloom once a year. What's sad is that after rain showers all the flowers drop to the ground. It took many, many years for this vine to grow so tall.
These are my flowers. Flowers that I planted years and years ago. They always show up annually because they develop new bulbs each year.
My aunt gave us this little purple flower and it grew into this big bunch of flowers...I don't know what it's name is though.
Last of all....
Ok, thanks for making it this far. :D Have a good day everyone.
