A brand new look

After struggling for a few months, I’m finally done with my new layout. I don’t think I’d have the time to work on my website if I had a job. I guess that’s how I spend my time in my current jobless state – I do the things that I enjoy doing but don’t have time for if I’m working. Whenever people ask me if I’m ever bored at home, my answer would be no. At the same time I really don’t know what I’m busy with. I read, I search for jobs online, I watch TV, I dabble with my website and I do some household chores. That’s about all.

It’s amazing how time flies even when one is busy doing nothing.

Sometimes I’d get the urge to try some baking. Yesterday was one of those days. I’ve always wanted to try making a bread and use the box of dry yeast I bought ages ago. It was originally meant for my mum but I found out she’s also a procrastinator herself. So anyway, my initial plan was to make doughnut balls but I decided to bake a bread as well since I already had the ingredients. Not to mention baking a bread is also one of the tasks in my Day Zero Project to-do-list.

I was too lazy to search for a proper recipe so I followed the one printed on the box of the dry yeast, which happened to be for brioche bread. Here are some pictures of my first bread-making experiment.

Waiting for it to rise
The dough was punched out (with gusto) and put aside to rest and rise.

Poof! The brioche dough doubled in size fifteen minutes later.

The brioche turned out pretty good (surprisingly) and I’m happy to announce that I’ve completed one task in my list. One down, a hundred more to go. Some of the tasks are currently in progress and hopefully I’ll be able to accomplish them eventually.

In case you’re wondering what happened to my doughnut balls, they failed spectacularly.
