My first recipe book

Despite by the "profound passion" in cooking, I never bought myself a recipe book! How could I!

How could one claim oneself to be so into something when the basic tool of it is not yet in possession?

The truth is I have always been a frugal shopper and recipe book for me is a bit of a luxury. One of the things in the "What Do I Do If I'm Rich" list is buying recipe books T_T All the recipe books in the house are my mom's and my aunt's. Maybe they too have this sort of list but they never have gotten rich so they end up buying second hand recipe books :"(   

Luckily I got book vouchers to redeem so few things on the "rich" list can be crossed before I get rich :)

After browsing through the "Food & Drink" rack I finally made my mind to get this:


And it was worth it! However there's still this slight feeling of guilty for not redeeming the voucher for something more academical.

So, this morning, for the first time, I sat at the balcony to enjoy the morning weather while enjoying the book. I read it from the first page! Note: first page does not start from the acknowledgement. First page starts from publisher, year published, where it is published etc :P I know, it looks like I am a bit too obsessed but I am just soooo excited with this new toy and trying to savour it from cover to cover *literally* :D

I was so preoccupied reading it until someone feel left out and trying very hard to bug me


Then he thought of enjoying the morning view with me. It would've been romantic but hello??? I got a book to read :P Look! I have to put aside the book or else he will not settle down and he will move back and forth my lap.


Look how much he enjoys it:



He's being too clingy nowadays. He needs to be mature and grow up but who can resist spoiling him when he went all mushy mushy and cuddly around u? Grrrr..  
By the way this is his usual favourite chill spot on a weekend morning, the rooftop gutter, to 'check out' the birds obviously.
