Honestly, I loved it. Almsot all the drivers to all the hardware to my computer was provided and bittorrent downloads were unthrottled.

How To Make Cornflake Cookies On A Sunday

11,709 views

10.30 am – Had a cup of milo,

soft boiled eggs and

a vegetarian murtabak

for breakfast.

11.00 am – “Project Cornflake Cookies”

A big ass empty bowl,

227g of butter,

a raw egg,

an egg beater,

135g of sugar,

283g of rising flour and, last but not least,

80g of cornflakes.

First, I poured the sugar in.

Second, the butter.

Beat it

till it looked mixed up. Took about 10 minutes.

Put in the raw egg and

the rising flour.

Beat it for the second time, till it looked mixed up. Took about 10 minutes.

Threw the egg beater aside. Continued beating it manually to release stress.

Poured in the cornflakes

and released more stress for about 5 minutes.

The dough should look pretty mixed up by now.

If there’s extra cornflakes, you could break it up (or not).

Pinched a sizable portion of the dough (I didn’t realize until I started baking that rising flour expands) and

rolled it around the extra cornflakes.

Filled it up.

Pushed the tray into the 160°C preheated oven and baked for 35 minutes.

~mmmMMmmmmm~

You just gotta try it man. Class A cornflake cookies. Woo hoo!

01.30 pm – Had duck rice.

05.30 pm – Bought the tickets to Yes Man.

06.00 pm – Went over to the fabulously

sceneric

Jerejak Jetty Cafe for dinner.

a plate of maggi goreng.

09.00 pm – Sadly, there’s no 20% sushi discount on Sundays. Only weekdays. 🙁
