After the completion of the magazine, I’ve been in state of la la…I would want to call it limbo but umm..that would mean i haven’t been doing anything and that wouldn’t be right. In truth, I’ve been picking up some freelance work along the way to fill up my time. Sadly, most of the projects has been rather dull. Nothing inspiring or exciting.Maybe its the weather.With all the rain we’ve been having, I’m not surprise that everything in the creative section are all frozen up. That or they could be all cuddled up under a duvet enjoying the chill breeze..Ahh…such joy…
In my mundane state, I’ve been watching a lot of french movie. And yes with me under the duvey..*laughs*
I just randomly download anything that seemed foreign. I went through quite a few movie and nothing sparked my fancy until i watched Julie & Julia. Which at first i thought was a french movie.Turns out, it was an American movie. I had no problem with it because it had Meryl Streep.
It was a simple story about a woman in her quest of self discovery by cooking her way through the year according to Julia Child’s cooking book. Nothing fancy or mind-blowing about the movie but at the end of it..I felt inspired. Something about these two ladies made me want to challenge myself more. Like Julie, i tend to not finish things that i start. I’ve been getting better throughout the years but there has been some straying at times..*smile*With Julia, she’s stubborn and when she wants something she’ll make it happen and this is where she and i are alike. So in the spirit of following their foot steps, I thought i’d make something simple from scratch..
After rummaging through the fridge, i decided to make my very own mayonnaise..It turned out good but of course it could have been better.. Through my little experiment i found out that, to make the perfect mayo..you need to season right at the end..and not mix everything together then blend..but oohh well..good first attempt…Excited to try more things now..till then..
