moody, headache, and my bones ache.. yup, it’s one of those days where we, women, have to struggle between this and daily life.
now that i touch the keyboard, i realized it’s been almost a week since my last posting..
noooo!! i don’t wanna become like the old me who like to abandoned blogs for weeks then months then years.. gotta be strong.. gotta stay with what i promised myself.
stay commited to one thing, until the very end.
…….. it makes me re-evaluating things again, …
… at the beginning of my blogging days, i dedicated it for the sake of my poor memory. i can hardly remember things a ate this morning, or what i did last weekend, or names, or funny stuff that happened.
and it would be such a shame, if i also forgot about my kids cute behaviour, things that would never be repeated ever again.
i made the blog with the help of mr.bear, so that we can see the changes (if there are any, hihihi) in years ahead. to see the kiddoz progressing. how they grow..
but unfortunately, i couldn’t keep up with all the typing and babies.. so i stopped.. -_____-
until… one day, i saw cookingblog that inspired (still) me . her spirit of cooking and baking, and sharing it to the fellow bakelover, reached me..
the me who could not bake (but surely can eat..mwahahahha), felt this urge, to try.
that’s where i started making my own recipes blog. it filled with recipes i’ve tried and would love to share.. …
once again, i stopped .
i looked at too much amazing foodblogs that makes me think “it wudn’t make so much different if my blog there or not”.
my blog existence doesn’t mean anything to the world… . coz it’s not like i’m a profi baker or something. most of recipes i posted are my first trials.
but i realized then, it means something to me.
it means a lot to my family.
it’s my way of going to another world. my lil’ piece of me to share. not to impress other people, just to express what i feel. what happened. what we experienced.
maybe, there is someone out there who read what i write and think “yeahh!! ican relate to that” or ”yeah, i get what u mean!” something like that..
and it really helps my memory.
reading my old posts makes me wonder sometime, is it really me who write this? hehehe.. or : “oh, yeah, that happened back then”
so for me, it’s worth it.
sure, i’m not an expert in something. i can not give any tutorial to anyone about anything. my post talk about random stuff.
my time for blogging is not always there, coz i have mini chubby bears who need my full attention.
and i’m still learning everything..
but i think i’m gonna keep going with this blogging thing. insyaAllah.
thus is our virtual home : home of the chubby bears.
if i don’t do this , how can i share with you that i made pretzel today.. and how the kids and the neighbours children love it.
and how it helped me through my bad mood..
and that the recipe is not that difficult.. yaaayyyy!!!
ok, enough with the bla bla.. i’ve made u read too much .. hehehehe.. let’s talk about food now, that always refreshing (for me)
u wanna try making one of these too? it’s not as difficult as u might think. ..and cheaper than buying one, too.. hehehehehhe
