Of Cupcakes and Icings

I just realized that it's already October. And that I haven't posted anything since um 12th Sep. So, this is the most random and photo-filled post I think I have ever done (or ever will do) that I ramble about what I did sometime ago. Be prepared. (:

We cooked/baked the other day (more like 2 weeks ago) during culinary course. For the savory dish, we killed crabs and then steamed them. It was an epic experience, although I don't really love seafood (:

But we baked! My first time baking in a really longgg time. Dark chocolate cupcakes + vanilla buttercream frosting = just awesome.

What I iced.

I had fun icing it. And although it looked cool enough, there are some other kids' cupcakes that were wayy more creative and pretty than mine (;

I think this is Sean's x)
Love this color combi :) All happy colors.

And...this is probably Noel's :)
So cleverly designed so that the eater can have the maximum amount of icing x)

And finally, the cutest cupcake I saw was this [by Natasha].
Aw. So sweet, ain't it? (;

I didn't get to take the other kids' cupcakes, but they were all equally amazing too!
And we had lots of fun. This was a fun break from school work to come and whip up a few dishes (:
*special thanks to Rachel for allowing me to use her camera  :)*

Hope your week has had a fabulous break like this!

School has started.

And wouldn't you believe it.
It just seemed like last week when I completed my final subject test and then danced for joy.

But summer was good(: So many enjoyable memories and epic times I had. Family outings, debate camp, DNA labs at SC, making and guzzling food, crazy meetups with friends, helping out at church...and now another school year begins. It's really overwhelming at times when I think about it.

All said and done about summer, I have I feeling that I'm gonna enjoy this school year. That is, if I work hard and keep up-to-date with all the work (: It's all about good time planning and responsibility {and all the parents say "amen" ^-^}

GOAL: to try my best, work hard and glorify God in all that I'm about to undertake. And to rest in the strength that only He provides (:

I'm praying that this new school year, will bring a new happy, epic, awesome, superb experience.

Ramblings and Catchups

I've been really busy of late. Not necessarily with school work, considering that it's summer break *yay*, but more with all those extracurricular activities and some summer work, and the list goes on. Can you believe that I haven't even had time to bake those delicious-looking macaroons ): sad.

Which reminds me that I have a sorta longggggg list of things that I have to complete. Oh the most fun-est one that I think I'm gonna enjoy the most has to be the apologetics speech (answersingenesis) on the human body.

First, I love the topic.
Second, it makes my job so much easier to do an apologetics speech on a topic I love.
Thirdly, I love doing powerpoint presentation.
Fourthly, I love presenting stuff when I know what I'm supposed to say. yep, I'm not too good at impromptus. my ICC (Institute for Cultural Communicators: speaking group) team can testify to that (;

So all these + the fact that I have almost a whole month (ample time) to leisurely prepare and memorize = the bestest, funest apologetics speech ever. *silent cheer*

(I think I'm getting pretty good at rambling)

Another exciting thing to look forward to is the DNA sessions we'll be having at the Science Center (: The last session we had was on forensic science and boy, it was super extremely cool. 
We worked on a real case that happened really long ago. Task was to find out who the murderer was by using the blood samples found at the crime scene. In addition, I was having a perfectly hilarious time amusing Prissy with my oversized lab coat, causing her to either have two reactions: glaring and me and telling me that she'll get in trouble for laughing too much, or stifling the squeal.

The upcoming two sessions will be on bacteria, health, protein purification, and whatnots. Sounds realllyyyyy exciting (:

As I'm doing all these science-ish stuff, it's always so interesting to relate it back to the Scripture and the awesome Creator.
For the human body apologetics speech, this verse is such a good reminder:
