So my boss told me have a good weekend last week so I decided not to touch any work! Hehe! Thanks boss! :P Anyways, it was a pretty good weekend. My usual Volleyball on Sat mornings and a run on Sunday morning. Although didn't manage to go running outside, I managed to drag my lazy ass onto the treadmill! Oh, also managed to catch the KL Dragon vs. Singapore Slingers match in MABA. Luckily we went, it was a pretty exciting game! Something which I might wait till the next post. Hehe.. but to sum up, we kicked their butt! Woots! :P

Anyway, so spent most of the afternoon attempting to bake cookies. Wanted to take advantage of the new oven we have in the new house. I went through a baking phase when I was in high school. I used to like baking these Chocolate Chipped Cookies. Haha! The word "cookies" brings back alot of memories to my friends specially those who tried them in high school. All of you will tell you that they were the "bomb". Let me tell you the story. Prior to my baking phase in high school, I had the same baking phase when I was much younger. I would bake the same old cookies all the time because they tasted so good. It even came to the point where I could remember the recipe at the top of my head. Well, that phase ended and came the high school phase. I thought I could remember the recipe and so I started baking. Just when I had finished adding in all the ingredients together, I thought to myself that

"The dough seems kinda soft? I don't remember it being this soft. Maybe I remembered wrongly and it needs more flour?"

*adds in more flour and mixes*

"Hmmm... still seems kinda soft. I swear to god it was never this soft"

*adds in more flour and mixes*

"Hmmm.. still soft la.. Aiyo! How? Already added in like half a packet of flour? Nvm la.. just bake and see how"

So, I shoved them into the oven and even tasted them once they were done. And I thought to myself "hey, these still taste pretty good!" Little did I know that the cookies are usually softer once they come out from the oven and they tend to harden once cooled. So I brought them to school the next day.. and let's just say.. erm.. my cookies were.. erm... they were considered weapons of mass destruction! LOL! My friends could chuck them to the ceiling, hit the fan multiple times, and drop down to the ground without breaking. My friends could use an Apit-G and a saw and still could not break it! Haha! My friends had a ball chucking my cookies around! LOL!

Anyways, for everyone elses infomation, I managed to find the actual recipe and baked them. My friends liked them after that! Haha!

With all the house moving, my maid somehow could not seem to find the recipe that has been stuck on the fridge for the longest time when it was actually there (found it when I went back to get something from the house). I had to use some recipe I found online. Went to get the ingredients, got my sister's maid to come help, and starting mixing things up.  Have attached some photos below of the process from my sister cause she just came to kepoh.. Haha!

Trying to melt the butter and mix in the sugar

Me standing on the a chair cause the table top was too high. My arm was dying from all the mixing.. :P

Me adding me in the Vanila essence

FML! Had to freakin sieve the flour but didn't have a bigger sieve. LOL! Lucky sister's maid did it for me. Might have lost my patience trying to sieve a whole cup of flour.

And the choclate chips we used *yum yum* *drool* *ah nom nom nom nom* Haha! Think this was the most expensive individual item! But it's soooo good! Haha.. :P

So after about an hour and a half later, TADAH!

Yeah right! Haha! This is the photo of the cookie in the website I stole the recipe in. Click here for more info and kudos to them for the photo!

Couldn't be bothered taking a photo of the finished product but it definitely does not look anything like the photo except maybe the colour! Haha! My bf said they were nice but hey, he's always biased. Sister said too sweet, and that's what I think too. Bosses actually took quite a few of them today when I brought them to work. So yea, not all THAT bad. :P

Things to note for next bake:

1. Use caster sugar - used normal course sugar because for some reason I thought granulated sugar meant grainy which meant coarse. LOL! You can actually still see the sugar bits on the cookie now. Haha!
2. Add chocholate rice on the top like how I used too for added taste! *drool*

Erm, that's about it! Hehe.. :P Since I've finished my entry, there's no other excuse for me to not clean my room.. BOO! Hehe! Till my next baking entry... Good night!
