CIMP Bake Sale

This week, I managed to go through my collection of recipes to decide what I might be baking for the CIMP bake sale from Nov 12 to 16 (Monday to Friday).

The bake sale aims to raise fund for children with AIDS, it's something I have been meaning to do ever since the AIDS awareness walk. It's a very meaningful cause and I hope everyone can support this event.

The booth will be set up at the cafeteria throughout the week. Do drop by to check us out!!!!

So, here's the "finalists" in my repertoire that I would prioritise in my to-bake list. If the pictures of the sweets below whet your appetite, then don't forget to drop by and support us :D.

Oreo cheesecake is always a crowd-pleaser

Vanilla cupcake with strawberry rainbow rice icing (I imitated this from Delish)

Marshmallow chocolate fudge might make a come-back by popular demands.

Every Woman's Right to PUMA

Forget about Crocs, these PUMA flats are the most comfortable shoes in the world!!!!

I am never a fan of PUMA because their products are too "rough and unfeminine" but this sport apparels brand caught my attention when one of my students, Stephanie, wore her
chili red PUMA flats to my class on the second week of class. I drooled with admiration.

As someone who's vertically-challenged [ahem], I never really love flats until they have been coming around as must-have accessories for the trendy dolly look; and so I thought I should give them a try, after all, I should never judge a pair a shoes by their heights.

The first pair of ballerina flats that I bought was the hot pink flats I bought in Singapore last year. And I told myself that they will be the last pair of flats I am going to own. After seeing Stephanie's Puma flats, I can't help but thinking about buying that very same pair of flats to match my outfits.

The litmus test to my desire for Puma shoes was to try out the shoes on my own. If they are too tight or
unflattering, I would walk out of the store without looking back; if they can be moulded into my feet comfortably, I would take them home right away. The result was latter, and so I have my very first pair of PUMA shoes in my shoe rack now.

The moral of this experience includes:
1. Never judge anything until you've tried them, especially shoes!!!
2. Every woman has a right to shoes, including those of

So, go PUMA!!!!
