Of puffs and stuffs. - Narcissism is Necessary

Of puffs and stuffs.

Had a major meltdown a couple of days ago. I was basically in tears about every 20minutes over the stupidest things. Poor Gareth, he suffered most all of the brunt, of course.

Sometimes I think right, I consider myself pretty damn easy to get along actually….so I really can’t imagine what those women who are super dramatic in public are like behind closed doors? Patient spouses/bfs I salute you all. How do you guys do it?

I have now calmed down of course. The painters have arrived (finally!) and I am no longer a bundle of crazy & tears. Thank goodness this shit does go away!

I am sweet as a freaking jar of sugar right now compared to two days ago. Even I like myself.

============

Anyway, we have started giving out our wedding invitations. Shah, my amazing blog manager is the very first one to receive it :)

# -Shah with our bigass wedding invite. Wheeeee!

I can’t wait to give out the rest! The card sets the tone of our wedding, which I will talk about soon.

Actually, truth is I don’t really have the right words to describe the theme yet lol. A bit schizo but in a crazy good way! Like us!

==============

One of my favourite desserts in the entire world is berrilicious chocolate pavlova from Delicious. I eat too many of them, too many but NO REGRETS!

The perfect ratio of crispy chocolate meringues with thick chocolate shavings, fresh strawberries and real cream. ohmaigerddddd

I tried making it but my last attempt at chocolate meringue literally fell flat. Best to leave this sort of things to the professionals eh.

Anyway where am I trying to get at? Back to my meltdown a couple of days back, so I tried to fix the emo with a dessert. Went to Delicious 1U.

Ordered berrilicious chocolate pavlova. Enjoyed every single spoon of it and then….cream ran out. Trust me when I say it has to be eaten with every element together.

I got a bit upset (naturally) because normally they have a lot of cream but this particular day it was barely enough.

Gareth coaxed me to ask for more cream. I was so sure they wouldn’t give me but what do you know, they gave me more than enough! No questions asked, and with a really nice smile too :)

I was so happy coz they really made my day. In the end I wondered if they would give me more chocolate meringue and strawberries for my now extra cream if I asked.

Kidding, I didn’t go there.

Thank you Delicious 1U.

We have finally bought our marital bedsheets for the wedding.

Went for our regular 650 thread count in red. Pillow cases also red!

# – Red for luck.

By the way, if you want to get good sheets for extra thick king size mattress, go Home’s Harmony.

Good discounts and even more as member. Service is also above average.

=========

I made cream patisserie for the first time! Wonder what took me so long!? Those stuff are delicious!!

Stuffed them in choux buns (recipe for the choux pastry here) I haphazardly whipped up and voila, CREAM PUFFS!

Will blog it when I make more next time. I think the secret is in using vanilla beans instead of fake vanilla extract. Makes all the difference.

# – My very inconsistently shaped but very consistently delicious homemade creampuffs.

Have a good week peeps!

    Hubbys have alway learnt during courtship how to have patience & let wifey have their moments….

    It always has paid off later…. wink2

    Afterall, it’s death do we part…. and that’s a loooong way to go….
