This has got to be one of the easiest desserts ever. Easy in the sense that it is just a matter of mashing up some very ripe bananas and mixing the whole lot with melted chocolate and whipped cream. But assembling the dessert is another story. It does require a certain degree of finesse of which I have very little.

Last year, someone bought a brand new Faber cake mixer just like mine. And he used it for the first time to bake a Legendary Pumpkin Cake. It was legendary all right. Because the cake became a pumpkin kuih. And his cake mixer is apparently possessed because it can talk.

Frozen rice that is. How original. I don't know if anyone else freezes cooked rice. You see, I don't eat rice most of the time but my partner is a rice bin. I mean "farn thong". He can't live without rice and when I cook, inevitably there will be one portion leftover as I can't cook only one portion. My rice cooker can't handle that.

Does any one of you talk to yourself? I have this nasty affliction and to the uninitiated, you may think that I am highly disturbed (which I am but that's besides the point). It helps me to focus especially when I am doing something intense. Like figuring out the balancing charge or balancing allowance arising from fixed asset disposals. And when I get it right you will hear a booming "Brilliant Madam! You are freakin' brilliant!" coming from my room.

Last weekend I went back to work. I actually enjoy working weekends because there is minimal or no disturbance and I can concentrate and get my work done a lot more efficiently. And I was actually feeling pretty happy. That's when I decided to go to Youtube and listen to songs while going about my chores. I found some bands that I used to love. Like EZO, the now defunct Japanese rock band. I cranked up the volume because there was only one other person at the far end of the office.

I never liked strawberries in the past. I mean fresh strawberries. Any other form of strawberries like strawberry jam, strawberry ice-cream, strawberry milkshake, I like a lot. Why? Because fresh strawberries from the supermarket are a tasteless lot. I don't know, maybe it's just me. But all this changed when Korean strawberries came along.

I did say that I was going to blog about the steamed version of Chocolate Buttermilk Cake. But the problem was that I couldn't get buttermilk. I know I can make buttermilk on my own by mixing milk with lemon juice but I didn't want to do that. I like the one that I can buy from the supermarket. But it is quite hard to get as it is always out of stock. In fact I saw a few cartons on Saturday and I thought I would come back on Sunday to buy it. But on Sunday, there was not a carton in sight. Hmmm...so there are other people who like Paul's buttermilk too.

Happy New Year everyone! Let me start the new year with some healthy eating. This is what I had for lunch yesterday. Oh no, I did not roast the duck hah..hah..too much trouble and I would rather pay someone else to do it. The duck was actually leftovers from last year :D
