Sorry for the lack of update for the past weeks as work had been hectic. I only arrived home like quarter to midnight on every evenings nowadays. But thankfully, it will only lasts for another few days before my schedule is back on usual track.
Anyways, I will be going to Singapore for a short trip some time next month for some errands. I will be meeting both Andrea and Patrick this time round as I did not get to do so on both my Singapore trips earlier this year. Dates have yet been confirmed yet as my original intended dates were postponed due to an unforeseen circumstance. So hopefully, I can take the week after.
Now that my Singapore trip is almost official with only dates hanging in the air, I think I can start planning for my trip. Sightseeing is definitely not in the itinerary as I do not have time but yes to cafe hopping and shopping. LOL! Andrea and I intended to try out this Harry Potter themed cafe called Platform 1094.
Anyways, I had finally finished watching The Heirs last Sunday and had started watching Healer after much recommendation from Sister. I think the main reason is because she likes Ji Chang Wook, the male lead. LOL!
I did a short yoga workout yesterday evening before sleep with the guidance of an app – Daily Yoga. Unfortunately, I ended up with slightly nausea after finishing the yoga workout. I could not be sure what caused the nausea. Sister said it could be that I drank water before my yoga practice or my body was tense during the workout.
Anyways, I started catching up on Korean drama series after having finished a season of both Lucifer and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. My Secret Romance had finished airing yesterday evening.
I recommended Sister Strong Woman Do Bong Soon and she agreed that the drama series was funny. She also mentioned that it was weird to recruit a female as a security guard to protect the male lead but I guess that was the selling point of the drama.
Anyways, I was looking for a new drama series to catch after having finished the first season of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders and I decided to settle with The Heirs. The said drama series was first aired many years ago and I stopped watching it when I found the storyline to be rather predictable. So, let’s hope that I would be able to finish the entire series this time round.
The gang made plan to meet up for dinner at Prego Mauri tonight but I decided to take a rain check as I am trying to eat clean in these two days. My body had been feeling rather bloated recently and my tummy is getting bigger in size.
It was probably due to the junk food which I had been eating recently. So, it is time to cut short on them. The bad thing about eating junk food is that once you start, it is hard to stop unless you have a kick ass strong perseverance. It has been at least a week or more since I last did baking and I am going to bake tonight. I had found a recipe online which I felt like trying. It is Black Sesame Red Bean Buns.
Anyways, I had started watching the first episode of The Liar and His Lover the other day and I find it rather boring in my opinion. So, I started up watching two other drama series instead.
Lucifer (Season 2)
My Secret Romance
I had been feeling rather uncomfortable recently due to the herbal supplements which I had been taking. It was nothing to worry apart from the occasional body sore and aches around here and there. LOL! Sister will be coming home at the end of this month and I managed to get her to buy me some baking supplies from Taobao.
And guess what I bought this time round? I got a tub of Valrhona Dutch processed cocoa powder. I had seen many baking bloggers who used this particular brand of cocoa powder when they were baking chocolate cakes or bread.
I do not remember seeing Valrhona at LeApple Bakery Mart or anywhere else here in Brunei. I remember searching for it while I was in Singapore earlier this year but I could not find it. Or perhaps I went to the wrong store?
I even got Sister to get me this yeast measuring tool as well. I find it quite hard to weigh yeast on a kitchen scale. So, I yeast measuring tool would be God send.
And bamboo charcoal powder as well! A cousin of mine once bought me a small packet from Kuching couple of years ago but I had stopped bread baking at the time when I got the item. So, it was left to rot until it had reached it’s maximum shelf life. LOL!
I am still feeling a bit tired from the day trip to Miri yesterday and I woke up with a mild sore throat this morning. But thankfully, it is a lot better now. Despite the mild irritation on the throat today, I had quite a few cravings and I ended up buying myself Matcha Milk from infinitea.
Anyways, I managed to finish watching Tomorrow With You this afternoon before heading to the bank to settle some bank errands. There was not much new Korean drama series to download recently so I went through my old external hard disks searching for previously downloaded drama series.
I did not have much luck finding the Korean drama series which caught my fancy either so I decided to go for The Liar and His Lover. I am not sure if this drama series is any good as the online rating has been quite low in my opinion.
