Calling all baking enthusiast

Hankerie: {Giveaway} Win 12-Colorful Cupcakes Silicon Molds

4 years after graduating from University Malaya, I still keep tabs at what my former course mates are doing. It doesn’t take a lot of work like the olden days. Just tune to Facebook® and before you know it, you’re stuck there for hours browsing to every photo your friends have uploaded and all those status updates. So without actually calling each and every one, I get to know who has changed jobs, who have migrated and who has gotten married and have kids!

Recently I found out that one of my courses senior is into baking. I love cooking but currently there’s no guinea pig to taste my food so I’ll have to wait till my daughter grows older… shhhhh… don’t let her know I’m turning her into my food guinea pig, okay? Anyway, long story short, my friend Han Ker of Hankerie is giving away (read FREEBIES) silicone cupcake moulds. I mean, who doesn’t like free stuffs right? Now before you people go on clicking to her site, Hankerie’s free giveaway runs from now until 31st August 2011 AND will only give those residing in ASEAN. No, that wasn’t a typing error; I did type ASEAN (means South East Asian Nations Only). So for those staying in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos - click the image below if you want it NOW! Remember, giveaway ends on 31st August 2011

But who is Han Ker of Hankerie, anyway? (Note to Han Ker, do correct me if I’m wrong, ok? My memory is not so good these days) what I know is she’s one of the best students in the Faculty of Computer Science and Technology of University of Malaya. If memory serves me correctly she’s on the Dean’s list. On a personal note, she’s the one who ‘buried’ me with all her books, notes and papers.

Now for most people who bake (including me) don’t put much emphasis on the outlook. As long as it tastes beautifully, it’s good to go. But Han Ker is different. Simple snacks like Swiss rolls or sugar cookies could just look oh, so gorgeous, you won’t even have the heart to lick it! And like all great bakers, this Leo isn’t stingy on her ingredients. In a way, I consider myself lucky for staying rather far away from her or I’ll end up standing in front of her house on a daily basis hoping to sink my jaws into her baked goods. I mean try visiting her blog dead in the night. I’m very sure you’ll hear your own stomach crying and your mouth watering. I know I’m not as good as her in baking. But the very least she inspires me to be creative.

Speaking of being creative, I’ve decided to redesign my blog yet again. So do excuse the current dull look. Hopefully Han Ker’s work will inspire me to create a delicious looking blog. In the mean time, bon appetite and good luck to those joining Hankerie’s FREE CUPCAKE MOULD GIVEAWAY!


  1. Speechless...I don't even know you're blogging before. Keep up the good work, and maybe can start planning for your daughter on the baking list, or perhaps bake for Dennis first.

  2. Thank you Hanker. Dennis is not a great fan of cakes and cookies, so usually I end up eating what I bake.


A little encouragement,
A small thought,
A simple sentence
To light up my day - Terima Kasih
