Is there anything better than butter?

"Is there anything better than butter? Think it over, any time you taste something that's delicious beyond imagining and you say 'what's in this?' the answer is always going to be butter. The day there is a meteorite rushing toward Earth and we have thirty days to live, I am going to spend it eating butter. Here is my final word on the subject, you can never have too much butter."

 “Cooking is like love; it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.”

 "Everything in moderation... including moderation.”

 "Always remember: If you're alone in the kitchen and you drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who's going to know?"

 "If you're in a good profession, it's hard to get bored, because you're never finished-there will always be work you haven't done."

 "The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook."

Heeeheee! I found this whilst browsing through my old drafts - a collection of quotes from Julia Child. This must have been around the time I watched the movie Julie & Julia :) A very delightful movie indeed. The bit about the lamb..LOL! And yes, isn't butter cake the most heavenly thing.

Feeling Cinderella

(suddenly felt like writing here I am)

I've been pretty active and busy with Toastmasters lately. The past month and all through September will be busy with installation ceremonies for new club excos, as the new term in Toastmasters just started. Tonight, I attended the installation of KK Advanced Toastmasters club, many of their members of which are always supportive of our club.

So anyway, all these meetings, gatherings and dinners have made me feel somewhat like Cinderella. (Ngeh, perasan nih. Kasi chan la bah..) Being that I work from home, my daily dress up routine usually consists of some jersey shirt or blouse, black slacks or a pair of jeans and the instant-est tudung I can grab a hold of. Being out and about, I get to actually dress up a bit, spray on some perfume and put on some make up and high heels (the highest I can tahan..then come home all sore..).

Like tonight, I had on the full ensemble of foundation, eyeliner, eye shadow, mascara, the reddest lipstick I could find, satin shawl by Yuna and gold blouse by Poplook.

Coming home, changing into my jammies (jammies ala kampung: t-shirt and kain sarong je), pouring out the make up remover, taking off the war paint (as my friend Rachel would say), then proceeding to put away the laundry and do some dishes... really felt Cinderella-ish. Bukan kah? :)

Well, playing make believe is always fun. Came back with both shoes unfortunately, no other Prince Charming to come a searching.
