I think I had exhausted lately, I felt so tired, guess I don't have enough and good sleep .. 盲. 忙. 盲 is best described how I am now! Sometimes, I don't know why I was so busy ...
I was out for business trip to Beijing this week and met up with some of my oversea colleagues. All of them told me that I looked so burnt out this time.. I guess so .. prior to this trip, during the weekend, I was very busy to church out the two birthday cakes for my daughters' friend and another one for my hubby's friend, and thereafter, I had to rush for the business travel. Life is so hectic !
I know I can't continue with such hectic life style for too long as I will not be able to sustain for long ... may be I should slow down or give up baking and blogging as that will allow me to have more time for myself to rest during the weekend ..but on another hand, if I slow down/give up, life can be very meaningless and miserable without a hobby ..
I need to rethink on how to manage my worklife and not to over exhaust myself. Definitely, now, I know I need a break .. I just want to let loose and hang around without doing anything ...
These two cakes were baked last week for my daughters' friend birthday. I didn't know how it turned out but both birthday girls loved it.
- 1 chocolate sponge cake - same as Chocolate Fudge Cake
- 250g cream cheese
- 90g butter
- 1 recipe almond praline
- 30g icing sugar
- Beat cream cheese and butter together until light and fluffy (about 1-2 mins)
- Add praline into few portions and then follow by icing sugar. Mix till incorporated.
- Slice the sponge cake into 3 layers. Spread the cheese mixture over all the layers and side, and then cover with chocolate rasps. Decor as desired.
