A week's story

This had been a hectic week for me. I'd been very very busy with work, daughter's school, goodies requests & preparing for an upcoming 'project' in April. All these requires constant concentration & focus until I haven't had any time for myself. Thought of taking 1 or 2 days' leave but didn't want to waste it. Dear hubby has lots of Annual Leave to clear, so if at the last minute he decides to go somewhere nice & I'm only left with a few days of Annual Leave, I'm gonna curse myself. So refrain & restrain. Will rest only when I'm sick.

Moreover, I've found out about a traditional herb / tonic (Halal of course), which could revive our energy & circulate blood better. It's called Huiji Waist Tonic. A friend said it is good cos his wife is taking it & I thought of getting one for myself too (now it comes with a free bottle of honey) since it's not so expensive - $39. Will think about it cos the last time I asked the salesperson on this tonic, I've forgotten to ask if taking this will whet my appetite = eat more = weight gain.

So last Thursday was the season finale of Prison Break. Don't want to comment so much on it cos it's a bit frustrating.

Before the show starts, I tried a Double Chocolate Cupcake recipe, which is so delicious as it is moist & very chocolatey. only on Friday morning did I make the frosting - Cream Cheese frosting, & brought them to work to share' with my colleagues.



Double Chocolate Cupcakes wz Cream Cheese Frosting


Since I have 2 orders of Cheesecakes / cups this Saturday, made all the cream cheese preparation last night as soon as I reached home from work. All are complete by 2am (can you imagine that? I haven't had a nap since delivering the goodies this afternoon.)

Shikin reqested for 2 dozen Cheese Cups - Blueberry & Oreo, while a repeat customer from hubby's work place ordered 2 8"-size Cheesecake - Oreo & Chocolate Hazelnut.

PS: Just found out from fellow Multiplier - Julie (aka Effa's sister-in-law) that Effa has given birth on 2nd Feb '07! Congratulations Effa! Later in the afternoon, managed to catch a glimpse of her cute son at Julie's webpage. He is indeed adorable - Arian Danish. I'm so happy for Effa. Have a good rest dear & may you have a speedy recovery.
