Masak-masak at BIG

Christine called me, if I want to join masak-masak class in BIG and learn how to make pasta from scratch. Looking at my tight schedule I won't be able to squeeze my time further. Looks like I don't have much time left for myself nowadays… But I need a break..

Arissa and Syamil will have co curriculum on Wednesday, so I thought why not, just put the other job aside. I need me time, and cooking definitely will pull me back from floating:) This is my third time joining the cooking class with them. So I just went, and enjoy every lesson and tips.. always an awesome session, very generous knowledge. And she made cooking seems so easy.

So it's okay to take a break for a while, perhaps when I come back to my job I will look at it in better perspective and fresh.

When you see lots of cooking photos from me, is when I need a break from craft. I normally will not follow exactly from the chef recipe, I will modify with what ever ingredient I have around me. I just need to be confident, understand the basic ingredient, feel the ingredient same as I feel every character of materials in crafting. No exception, it's a process and journey, that only you can feel. The rest is just fine and embrace the process. 

Me and my friend was discussing the other day, the meaning of real luxury. I interpret luxury by having an extra time, be able to do what I passionate about, having a good health and the dollar part not even in the top 5 list. Even to have a good sleep is luxury. Be able to live comfortably, and spending money on good groceries, without making so much comparison. Purchase something based on quality and not because of the price.

I being pampered by treat myself with a good food. The cooking definitely tasted better by having better quality butter, or good flour…The energy definitely will channel into a happy meal. Nothing can't beat home cook food. Am I a good cook? I just cook every meal with love...
