day 2470 – sponge cake

the expectation of post covid times is many people will come out of this quarantine with newfound baking and cooking skills  – my mom is no different. she spends her excess time roaming around youtube, searching for new recipes and new things to cook. baking is a dangerous game because there’ll be a lot of unwanted calories available in my house. at this rate, my mom might be able to open her own bakery shop

day 1849 – la foret

marcom meeting at la foret to plan out the upcoming dodgeball season. it’s good to get together once in a while to make sure everything is clear and understand what’s expected of each person. i’m not big on cakes and pastries most of the time but i took home a raspberry mousse cake because i’m under the impression that the cakes and pastries here are very well known. i shared the piece with my parents and they both loved it. i guess delicacy like this is okay once in a while

day 1683 – fancy pastry

getting treated by the marketing team with some fancy decadence. in the week long absence of my manager, the few us of leads held the fort down and the marketing manager went the extra mile to make some callouts. in my mind, i was just going about my business; in the eyes of others, we presented ourselves professionally even when other departments tried to rattle us. while some took the opportunity to slack and call in sick, i kept going in day after day. ten weeks into the year, i’m the only one in design department to still have a perfect track record and still planning on going strong

day 404 – moon cake day

what’s moon cake day without actually devouring some moon cakes?? i was feeling quite ill all day but as asians, we all know we can’t go through mid autumn festival without having eaten at least several pieces of this unhealthy lotus with egg yolk pastry. those things taste so good and yet so bad for health. there was also a big egg yolk in the sky tonight, as big and round as i have ever witness. happy mid autumn festival!!
