One of the best feelings of life is when you see some one use your whole blog as their facebook status!
People come into your blog for some wild reason, check things out, nothing interesting and just exit. While some come and hope to see more and more of your work. While bloggers have their own season of emotions, and you never know when they spill it out into the perfect symphony of words! And when the bloggers do figure out what and how to write the best blog; it is all what they need.
But what usually interests me is when people do not like (From what I mean like, is by clicking the like button) your pictures on facebook or your status or your blog; even though they like it (From this like I mean from the heart)! So hence whats the issue, in simply liking by using the button.
So from a little survey I noticed that people who dont click like could be people with low self-esteem, depression or people who think that others might not be liking them enough, people who like to live in their belief of negativity, people who have a low positive self-image of themselves, jealousy, or maybe seriously that stuff you posted is not worthy of even a single like !
While some think and are convinced that they should not like anyone because there is no one else like them.
Hence, while you do not get those clicking likes on your things on the social media, do not feel upset just carry on because where your heart is, is where your heart is.
And finally some people would be thinking why the tittle and the content has nothing in common. Well then that’s because to gain the attention… Get a catchy tittle!
That be the original blog.. http://wp.me/p2FVu6-5O
I am love searching for DIYs and it had become an interest in trying to do them at home. And finally I decided that I should let my little creativity monster to see some day light!
Initially I thought all these things I see, on which people do their DIYs, are hardly available at my place, where do I get a lump sum amount of bulbs or buttons. It wasn’t until yesterday I realized that my mom was segregating old mugs, and that when the idea clicked in!
I decided to give it a go and it worked!
It’s really easy, quick, and you only need literally a couple of things, plus just a little bit of creativity in those grey cells !
I have seen people use sharpie to write on mugs, but I used some paint and brush.
I used just two colors : orange and black
The reason so it would look like a set… And you just have to analyse the cup, if it has some prints, and try to follow it.
You can see the before and after look of the mug!
My First Ever Vanilla Custard Tart…
It was not much of a hard task, but the only thing I found a bit of a task was making the crust thin. But nevertheless it is an easy recipe, which just requires some amount of practice.
Ingredients For The Tart
- 200 grams of flour
- 100 grams of unsalted melted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon of custard powder
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1 tablespoon of cold water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (for taste)
Ingredients For The Custard
- Any Vanilla Custard Powder (I Used Rafhan Vanilla Custard Powder) and follow the instructions on the packet
- Cocoa Powder
- Waffle or Biscuits
- Mix all the dry ingredients -Flour, salt, sugar and custard powder, together properly. Make sure they are mixed evenly, as usually we just ignore mixing the dry ingredients.
- Add the melted butter, vanilla extract and water and kneed well.
- When it forms a soft dough, wrap it in a clingfilm and leave it to chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, in a round shape.
- Make sure the dough is not thick but is thin.
- Butter the inside of a baking pan.
- Carefully pick the dough and place it inside the baking pan.
- Prick the dough with a fork.
- Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees.
- Bake the dough for around 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, start making the custard as per the instructions on the custard packet.
- Leave it to cool for atleast 15 – 20 minutes.
- By then the dough would be baked.
- Carefully pour the custard into the tart and refrigerate it
- Or take the crust out on to a serving dish and then pour the custard into the tart, as it would impossible to cut the tarts for the baking pan.
- Refrigerate it till it sets.
- I used a watermelon cutter to make equals cuts of the tart. You could just simply cut them into four pieces and then half each piece again.
- By using a net sprinkle cocoa powder a little on the tarts and then place a biscuit over each!
- And enjoy
So finally I put my “lazy-ness” behind me and decided to make waffles! But I then realized that I was mistaken that I had a waffle hot plate !
How demotivating is that ?
But somehow I did some search and found that it is possible to make waffles without a waffle iron,
And yes they did turn out to be crispy from outside and soft from the inside. As this was my first time, I stuck to the basic recipe of a waffle.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- (Many times I have seen recipes use 1/2 cup whole wheat flour but as I did not have any of that I just used the all-purpose flour)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons raw sugar (or substitute granulated white sugar)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups milk (Usually buttermilk is used for a richer taste but I just used full cream milk)
- Unsalted butter
- Maple Syrup or Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup or Any Syrup
- Mix all the dry ingredients together properly. Make sure they are mixed evenly, as usually we just ignore mixing the dry ingredients.
- In a separate bowl beat the eggs and the milk. Mix them with the dry ingredients. Melt some unsalted butter (I used a table spoon of butter). From experience I have noticed that if you add vanilla extract at the end, then its smell stays longer.
- Do not over mix. If you see some lumps in the batter, it is fine, it would not matter.
- If you over mix the batter might become thick.
- As I was using the sandwich maker grill, it became heated in one minute. What ever Griller or source you are using it needs to be preheated. I sprayed some olive oil, and poured the batter into the grill plate, and closed it.
- By using my smelling instinct I figured out they were cooked. Took almost 3 minutes!
- And then I cut them into two, spread some Maple syrup and topped with Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup and munched it right away
It is a hard life. And their is too much in our heart that we want to pour out but Its a wonder if its ever useful to ever tell anyone about how you feel. Would it really matter if anyone knew how we felt or what we are going through? And if someone did really have some empathy towards us, it would not really change much in our lives. Making someone feel sorry for ourselves isn’t all that we require! We need an action in life which would change our feelings.
Still its always as we feel “Lost and confused. And still don’t know what we really need !”
