Random Potato Talk #5

It's been a long time since I've written here in my blog. I really write writing and somehow it's my way of venting out my feelings, emotions and especially my frustrations. Speaking of frustrations let's talk about my frustration about cooking. So if you knew me for like quite some time maybe way back December 18 or something I've written this blog about living on my own in college and so here I am today still unable to cook a single grain of rice for dinner. We all have that feeling heroic moments when you just suddenly woke up from an 8-hour slumber induced by no sleep late last night due to a long quiz that never happened caused by your teacher feeling like, "Oh, I'm not gonna give a quiz today just cause I don't want to." and think that you could do everything you want to do cause you think you're the most capable being on earth. So here you were, washing some rice, readying for your first ever cooking show and humming to yourself while putting it over your rice cooker.  You take out your phone taking the most epic picture possible just cause it's your first time cooking rice and its expected in your country to know how to cook rice at the age of 10 and you're already 18 and ambitious enough. You take this little stroll in insta until you smell something burning and this time it's not your hair. It's your nonexistent work of art. You forgot to add in some water and all you had to do was wait for that rice cooker to just say keep warm! 

So College life is going well for me aside from the fact that I had to buy my Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner from the Cafeteria. Good job self! You're going to survive it all so come at me life! *notice the potato sarcasm* So if you're having a bad day out there cause you're crush can't notice you, or your being bullied by someone who doesn't really know your true self at school, or you're bored all the time just cause you have all the time in the world and time is your slave or you're just plain frustrated with life's problems and hurdles remember there's a girl out there that is supposedly  expected to capable of cooking rice at the age of 10 and is now 18 but still can't have dinner due to her own clumsiness, negligence plain old stupidity. Don't be too harsh on yourself. We learn from mistakes but for me I think I'm going to learn from youtube since Mum's not here. 😛 

Keep Breathing~

Your burnt rice story reminds me of dozens of cooking misadventures my best friend has had :) Try again!

Been there, done that.  Never did get the hang of it.  (Hope that's not too discouraging.)  I can make a sandwich.  Sometimes I can even successfully heat soup in the microwave.  Beyond that.. best not push it.  I don't even have the BBQ gene that a lot of guys seem to have.  My ancestors must have been the fruit-eaters because that's the only way they could have survived.  :D

I used to live by myself until about a month ago. I ate take-out for every meal, and when I looked down at the weight machine and decided that it was not broken and that I had, indeed, gained 10 pounds, I decided to cook for myself. I tried to make myself a homemade Popsicle (it's literally the easiest thing out there, guys). I took my food coloring, my water, and my sugar. I mixed it all perfectly. What I did not realize was that I needed to heat the sugar and water for about 10 minutes. I put it in the freezer for an hour, took it out, and lo behold! I got some orange ice with the sugar stuck in the middle.

Needless to say, I don't live alone anymore.

Just remember, the smoke alarm is not the timer, lol.

But seriously, don't be too hard on yourself and keep at it, you'll pick it up. 

Aside from rice, have you had success with another dish?
