Well, I'd say I'm pretty surprised to find out that Tampines NTUC actually has quite a large variety of offerings and I am pleased cuz I do not need to head to Phoon Huat at Simei to get some of my baking supplies.
All my posts recently have been the happy-happy-and-smiley kinds cuz I'm enjoying my three-month break thoroughly! :)
But, from now till the new semester starts, all the stressors are coming back again simply because the Module Preference Exercise begins from TODAY. And I just realised it yesterday when I was just checking my NUS email account for fun. And there, a big surprise was in store for me. Boo.
Initially, I planned to take 3 core Economics modules, 1 Japanese Language module and another Singapore Studies module to quickly clear the University Requirement and probably another Business module (cuz I might be applying for a Minor/Major in Business, or Management as so they call fom AY2007-2008 onwards.)
To my dismay, I realised that one of the 3 Econs modules CLASH with the exam date of my Japanese Language. And I thought, "Okay, fine. I'll just take another core Econs module." Well, guess what, the lecture slot of the other module I'm looking at CLASHES with the lecture slot of my Japanese Language. HELP. So, this was the point where I started feeling it all over again.
Yes, the feeling of helplessness, annoyance, irritation, disbelief and pekchek-ness are all back to haunt me again.
So right now, I'm still trying to see if there's another core Econs module I might be able to take this semester. Otherwise, I'd only be taking two instead of three cuz I die die can't give up my Japanese Language next semester, especially when I'm at the 3rd level already and if I miss the next level the next semester, I'd probably have to start from ground zero again. Yes, Japanese Language is all about writing and reading and writing and reading every other day. Miss it for months and you can say Bye. :(
Therefore, I might decide to take some chapalang Exposure Module to satisfy my last Faculty Requirement, and I'm currently looking at either Chinese Language (Haven't touched/read/wrote/studied Chinese since I graduated from Anglican High! So, am I brave or what if I really take this module!) or Japanese Studies. But I hate both cuz they will make me come back on Thursdays when I already have to come back on Mondays - Wednesdays. So, this also means that I'd try my very best to leave Friday untouched. Now, this is gonna take me some serious (and stressful) planning.
OH WELLS. Talking about all these are dampening my previously-delightful mood.
Anyways, these are my recent bakes! :)
Look! It's the evil Peanut Butter Cookies:
They are so good that I can't just stop at one (or two)! I kept popping them in when I obviously can't chew too much with my braces. Heh. Next time, I might try baking them with a different brand of peanut butter as these grease the fingers slightly. But who cares so long they taste good!
And these are the Paper-Lined Sponge Cakes I baked last Saturday:
They turned out soft, very cake-like and light. But it was still different from what I dig from Crystal Jade Cakery. :( I was trying to look for a recipe that would make it more "airy" inside. Am gonna try another recipe I came along soon!
P.S. I'm going to go on a baking frenzy using fruits, fruits and MORE fruits. Hehe.
