Sometimes, I’m scared.
When cockroaches fly-pounce onto my shirt (avoid bright colours near cockroaches).
When my health is out of my control because even a change in diet or taking medicine doesn’t work.
When a “complex numbers” question appears on my examination paper.
When I dislocate my right wrist but can’t feel any pain.
When I’m doing supposedly-fun-stuff-that-are-not-so-fun-because-my-reflexes-are-not-quick-enough-when-cockroaches-are-not-pouncing-onto-me-or-when-scary-cats-are-not-chasing-after-me.
When I have nothing to do (rarely happens because my dear Toshiba is still alive and kicking thank God!).
When I’m baking cakes via the beating-egg-whites-till-whatever-peaks method (in this case, positive, healthy fear).
When my asshole of a brother aims his heavy and dirty basketball at me.
When I get reminded that the future is uncertain. Though it’s better now, life is still stuck at suck-ish, depressed, pissed and “my soul is stuck in the wrong body” stage.
And people say praying works. I say it doesn’t work for everything.
PS: Somehow, I think its rather weird to pray for cockroaches to not jump onto me since I’m asking for it by wearing bright coloured tops stained with chocolate, cake batter or whatnot. Those cockroaches don’t exactly deserve death. Poor little 小强s.
But as always, distraction works! Especially distraction in the form of baking.
My friend and I made this for another friend’s birthday. Its a chocolate cake with cheesecake filling and Nutella frosting. As usual, because of Singapore’s crazy hot weather, the frosting liquidated almost immediately and needed multiple trips to the freezer.
That said, it turned out fine in the end! I love the cheesecake in the middle, which balanced out the fudgy chocolate cake perfectly.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m getting sick of chocolate!
