As you would realise by now, there isn’t much cooking here on Ovenhaven land. I don’t think I can cook to save my life, apart from the aglio olio or sauce-from-a-can pasta, and the last I checked, my mom insists that no one can live on bakes and pasta alone.
But thank heavens for my love of the oven.
While I can never come close to replicating authentic Malay dishes, I can take comfort in the fact that at the very least I can afford to whip up quick and easy lunches in the oven!
Well, it’s a start, isn’t it?
When I was much much much younger, I would be sprawled on the floor in front of the box set, watching Winnie the Pooh (I think it’s called Welcome to Pooh Corner), fascinated by the warm and friendly intonation of the old British grandpa narrating the story at the beginning. Years later, I find myself collecting the different Winnie the Pooh soft toys, and receiving varied Pooh merchandise from friends and family each year. And now that I’m all of twenty-six years and one week, I still find myself singing the whole theme song.
Especially while preparing for this particular cupcake order.
