Chocolate again. Recently I find myself very lazy to create anything. Yesterday, I had planned to bake Chocolate Mousse Cake for my daughter's birthday but somehow my laziness turn a beautiful Mousse Cake into simple chocolate cupcakes. I really don't feel like making complicated cakes. I promise you that next year, I will bake you a very beautiful cake. The best way is to quickly marry and let your husband buy you a cake.
You have to believe me, sometimes doing anything depends on your mood. Tell you something, I am going to doze off now, very sleepy and laz.........................y. What does it mean? Saya sudah tua. I need to play more" Majong game"just to keep me awake.
