Letting Go...

"When everything seems to be unlike anything I have ever been familiar with, when all that surround me have changed, and my comfort zone has been taken away, no matter how scary the new situation is, there is one last resort left for me...

Letting go...

My life is not messy, it's just unstable, uncertain and sad. But I accept it now. This might seem as defeat, and I don't care anymore. I accept it.

I'll just accept and expect the worst to come. If I am prepared for the worst, then I can cope up with anything. Like a mantra, I'll say this over and over. I am tired of trying and fighting, so for now, I'll just let go and let the wind take me where I have to go.

Go ahead beat me now, while I am numb. I am prepared for the worst and that is how I calm the storm that's inside me. Either I despair or let go, so I choose the second path, because a person like me has nothing to lose.

I am nothing..."

No Bake Banoffee Pie

My good friend and sister in faith, sis K, have been showering us with home made cakes several times now. I appreciated her cakes not only because they're fresh and scrumptious but also because they look and taste better than the store-bought ones. Her cakes are so good I'm tempted to pursue baking myself. Looks like a lot of fun!

Now I am even more confused which hobbies to pursue. There's the Barbie project, my passion for reading and just very lately, my plans to venture clay crafting. But when I saw this no-bake banoffee pie in facebook, I decided to purchase some basic inexpensive tools needed for baking.


The tools needed for this "project" are:

Mixing bowls 2
Zip lock plastic
Electic hand mixer
Baking trays

I'm entirely zero with baking so the only tool I had in the kitchen was the zip lock plastic hehe. Luckily, Kmart has the other 3 for very cheap prices.

The ingredients for this recipe all bought from Woolies are:

Lady fingers
Butter 1/4 cup
Thickened cream
Banana
Condensed milk
Oreo cookies

For the procedures:

1- pound the lady fingers into fine crumbs or at least into very small bits

2- melt the butter and mix with the lady fingers crumb

3- set the crumb into the base of the baking tray

4- drizzle the crumb base with condensed milk

5- cut bananas into thin slices and layer above the crumb

6- beat the thickened cream with the electric hand mixer until fluffy; add condensed milk to desired sweetness

7- put the cream on top to the brim of the tray

8- put 2 pieces Oreo cookies in a ziplock plastic and pound to crumbs

9- top the Oreo crumbs then cover the tray

10- finally, put in the freezer to cool :)

And then you can enjoy your very own version of banoffee pie :)

Trivia: banoffee is actually from banana and toffee (which is heated up condensed milk) but because I was too lazy to heat up the condensed milk, I decided to drizzle it as it is... hehe.
