Surviving Without A Gadget

Let's talk about our modern gadgets today.  What are the most important gadgets to us these days? Well, for someone like me with three grown up kids, I never leave home without my faithful handphone by my side.  Whenever I go for a walk, I'll always have my smartphone with me; firstly, I can snap photos around by using my smartphone and share them on various social media sites and secondly and most important of all, this is my source of communication with my kids.  Other than that, gadgets like iPad, laptop, desktops, they are my important items in my life now.

But as important as it is, I realized that sometimes you have to be disconnected from these devices to be connected with your loved ones. And so one day, I decided to take a little timeout from all devices for ONE hour to just live my life device-less, just like the good old times.

It was quite difficult for me as I have been pretty much dependent on my gadgets for everything in my daily life, but having an hour to myself without any devices with me gives me time to not only cook an extra dishes for my children when they're back for visit (as I have no reason to stop cooking just so that I could snap photos and share them on social media sites) but I also managed to play longer with my dog and make conversations with people whom I neglected to say hello to when I do my daily walking routine to the park.

An hour off from all your tech device. I think it's a pretty cool thing to do daily. I've done it and felt that I'm much more connected to the world than I ever before. Below are some suggestions what we should do so as to build up a bonding with our love ones. :)

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....
