Sparring Partner

I know I have mentioned before that I have hung up my badminton racket for good... but last week I had taken it down again and now suffering the consequences....

My office is sending a "contingent" of players to Seremban next week.... ladies are not aplenty here in my office... I mean not many ladies in my office like to play badminton, in fact, only a small fraction likes to play and only a few who can play.  I am NOT one of the "terrific" ones but I think I can still be a sparring partner and that is what I am doing now for these two weeks.

 For our training, we got to go to the Badminton Academy hall in Chemor, quite a distance away from my house but no choice, this is official and we got to sacrifice our own petrol... LOL...
The large poster at the hall kind of "motivated" me... hahahaa....
 We even have a coach to teach us how to serve properly....
Not only one... but two coaches... hahahaa...
We are very "terror" one... we need double coach!
Two fingers mean two hours of training and sparring...
By the end of the day, my body will shout... "OUCH! OUCH!!"
Nothing like those days anymore...
Bones are not so "obedient" as before...
Need to go for a good Thai massage this week...
How nice if the office can sponsor that... 
hahahaa.....

  8. Good that you are willing to be a sparring partner but not join the competition. Your office is lucky to have a dedicated person like you.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

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.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
