My Dream Machine
Freedom is mine, at last. At least for now, before the next semester comes.
The past two weeks has been tiring. My friends and family haven't been seeing much of me. I've been a good student, studying and slogging really hard. I feel as though my brain is drained.
Well the good news is, it's OVER! My exams have ended and I'm truly relieved. It's been nothing short of a roller coaster ride. Never have I been so stressed out over exams. This time, it was a whopping 5 papers all crammed up in 4 consecutive days. I had two papers today and trust me, it's an experience I would never want to relive.
Enough about exams. I want to talk about happy stuff. Stuff like my dream machine! I know this might sound super bimbotic but I really go weak in the knees when I see this:
Other girls go 'Oooo' and 'Ahhh..' over handbags, shoes and accessories but you want to know a secret? It takes more than soles, leather straps and gem stones to get me all worked up.
I highly suspect that God made me different.
Some of you already know that I'm a supermarket addict. Well, here's another revelation - I love baking/cooking equipment. Not only am I attracted by sleek shiny steel odds and ends, I'm very much seduced by machines that work like a dream. That includes that purple wonder over there.
People have asked me which room in my future house I'd spend the most money and time on. Usually the answer is out even before I can open my mouth. All I have to do is to widen my eyes, purse my lips and my friend would know the answer. I mean, come on, the title of my blog says it all. Yes I bake and I cook and I enjoy it very much. It's who I am and what I'm most passionate about. So of course I would not scrimp on my kitchen!
Trust me, when I have my own kitchen, I'll make sure it's furnished with only the best and well stocked with ingredients that will come in handy whenever I have the urge to bake or cook - even if it's at 2am in the morning!
And the one thing I MUST have - my dream machine.
A KitchenAid. A purple one! Well the colour doesn't matter, as long as it's a KitchenAid. I saw these KitchenAids at Vivocity's Tangs and they cost $614! Too bad I'm still a poor lowly student. Wait till I get my first paycheck when I get a real full time job after I graduate! haha. I really am biased toward KitchenAid mostly because Jamie Oliver uses one and most professional chefs use it and my aunt uses hers to make the most beautiful breads and fluffy chiffon cakes. Seriously, I dream of the day I can get my hands on one I can call my own. Oh, I can imagine caressing the hard cold metal and the planetary motion of the whisk whizzing and churning, creaming my butter and mixing my cookie dough. Man, oh man, I think I'm getting too carried away!
Heh, okay, enough nonsense (i think all the studying has done something to my brain), I will stop here for now. I am going to rest well - I need it, as well as mental preparation for the hard long run on Sunday morning. Ahhh I look forward to crossing the finishing line. That part makes it all worth it.
