I'm back

Wow! Just noticed that I have not been posting here for over a year. 

Many things had happened during this year long hiatus. 

My life has changed since my last post.

I neglected this blog as I needed to spend more time to care for my mother who was battling cancer. 

Sadly, early last November we lost her (due to this illness). 

Mom's demise affected me and I lost my mojo in blogging. 

It took me quite awhile to get up on my feet again... 
However, I could not bake any chiffon cakes for the last 6 months...
Each time I attempt to bake it, the cake would deflate and I often get emotional  when baking it.
Mom loved my chiffon cakes and they would be her breakfast everyday till her last days.

On the family front, the nest is gotten emptier too! 
DS 1 is away attending the National Service Camp for 3 months.
DS2 on the other hand, currently away from home (some 1300 km or 850 miles apart). He is pursuing a degree in Chemical Engineering in Curtin University, Sarawak. 
Only DD is home with us for the time being.

... Hope to be able to write more soon ....
