Coconut Chocolate Macaroons + How to stress-less

I have this in store for you today! Coco-nutty Macaroons dipped in velvety chocolate sauce. topped with crunchy pistachios.  It’s currently exam prep month for me. and also for everyone else around me. So the energy is quite intense. Whenever I walk into the library, I can feel everyone peering into their textbooks or laptops. Whenever someone makes a noise (crunching on some crisps, or get an unexpected phone call), everyone turns and give them the death stare. It’s seriously scary. I find some people heavily highlighting the journals that we should have read (but did not) during the term time. The academic journals have a colourful mesh of rainbow on it now. At least it doesn’t look as boring as it did before 🙂 Others are drawing funny looking diagrams in sticky notes and pasting their textbooks, files, folders, bags, coffee cups (even jackets) with it. I often hear groups of people gathered around a laptop trying to decipher or debating what Asquared +Q x Z(to the power of 3) – 1080 means. It …

Cinamon Scrolls + life’s meaning, happiness, purpose.

I’ve been reflecting on life a lot lately. Hence, the need to make these fluffy Cinamon Scrolls. The name Scrolls came when I was rolling the dough and I thought how they seem reminiscent of in the olden days when someone would write on parchment paper, roll it up, tie it up with a string and store it. Anyways, back to the present and these Cinamon Scrolls. Sometimes, when I’m caught in thinking, I feel the need to bake something that takes time. Can anyone relate to that? It’s as if along the process of mixing. rolling. rising. kneading. rising the dough. again. I come across the answers that seem to make sense of this thing we have called life.   So as my thoughts on life, and it’s meaning (the post on life’s meaning have moved here) manifested, the dough of these yummy Cinamon Scrolls were rising. I adapted the recipe from Minimalist Baker. Here is the original recipe by the talented Dana.  The recipe for the dough was simple and so yummy, I …

Cinamon Orange Vanilla Scented Granola

It’s Friday! (Finally) Oh how I missed writing a full blog post for you guys. I am super sorry and thank for sticking through with me. This week has been a super busy week, there was dissertation and a group work deadline that had to be submitted. Despite the hectic week,, it was also a week worth celebrating. Just yesterday on Thursday, I submitted my dissertation for law. The work I have been working on for the past 7 months, after many nights of despair, writer’s block, editing, and at times when I felt like I was drowning in words… I couldn’t tell you how good it felt when I hut the SUBMIT button. IT WAS FINALLY DONE. I wrote a short post on this past Tuesday on Instagram about Positive Persistence. Truth be told, I was having a mini mental breakdown. There was so much to do in so little time, I didn’t know how I was going to get through. There will be times in life when our mental / physical endurance will …
