Another Little Venture

This month has really been a real busy month for me. Without realising it, it's already the last week of the month and I have not blogged a single post! I have spending my days working Overtime as usual, meeting up with friends, buying christmas presents... It is a happy festive season with lots of gathering and eating. :D

Sad to say though, I have not been baking as much as I used to during this period of time in past years. Presently, hubby and I are also busy with researching for our new home renovation ideas, design, and brands and type of appliances to use etc. It really is no easy job to have to go down to every little bit of details, fro floorings, carpentry, colours, curtains, etc. We decided to design ourselves and source for our own contractors. Engaging an ID (Interior Designer) is just way too expensive. Anyhow, after talking to a few IDs and browsing magazines, we found out that the designs that IDs come out with for a typical small 4-room flat like ours are usually the same, unless we are renovating a big house. Most importantly we need to know our lifestyle and what we want.

Although I told myself that the blog is mainly for my own baking journal, now that it has been going on for a few years and do attract visitors, I do not wish to keep it lying idle for too long. :(

This is going to be a really short post without a recipe. I have made these berry crumble muffins before and surprisingly my colleague who saw the photos on my faceook was attracted to them and requested me to make some for her because she loves berries+crumbles+muffins. :) I picked out these two recipes - blueberry crumble muffin and mixed berry muffins, not knowing which texture she prefer, and topped with the blueberry crumbles. It was a hit with our co-colleagues! I made one batch using bueberries and another using raspberries. She preferred the mixed berry muffins, and I was wondering was it because of the muffin texture (the blueberry crumble muffin recipe is the cake-like texture) or the raspberries!

Since this is such a hit, I would recommend to those who love berrry muffins. ;)

Aimei,Merry Christmas to you! Working on your first home project is very very exhilerating. Savour every moment. For the first home, you are buying everything from scratch and don't have the restrictions to work around old items - hence the opportunity to truly build up your dream space. Enjoy yourself and we will be looking out for your treats...
