A wrong day.

Sunday wasn’t an spectacular day. I couldn’t meet my friend because he was busy working; I wasted two hours driving to the facial place to realize that the booking lady have scheduled me for March 21th, not February 21th! 👿 For my surprise, I wasn’t angry at that moment, I even felt good to just go out and breath fresh air. I finished reading piled-must-read magazines and called it a good Sunday. But somehow at night, when I was lying down on the coach, I felt sad. Why sad? Because I didn’t have anyone to share my thoughts/feelings after a long week of work, when I can finally shut the mind from work and focus on myself, but then I feel emptiness. Furthermore, I can’t see this is going to change in the near future.

Note: I know I’ve posting more negativity recently. I thought about not writing them to not bore my readers. But then I remind myself that this blog is for me foremost, to record my journey, good and bad, to express my true feelings. If besides of that, someone find it useful or inspiring, great. If not, I’m sorry but can’t and won’t pretend to be my happiest moment when I’m struggling with staying positive.


Well… Sunday was a good day in term of cooking. I finally made puffed pancakes a la Heather. I modified her recipe a bit


  • 1/4 cup WW flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat bran
  • 1/4 cup barley flour
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

I made a sauce using oikos vanilla + apricot preserve.

If it’s not because it took me > 30 min to make this combo, I’ll have it every other day. It’s really good! 🙂

Making batches of waffles and freeze them for the week.


this week’s dim sum #1: yam & black sesame cake! recipe to come 😉

Q: When is your (emotional) most vulnerable moment of the day?

  1. Coco,
    Yes, pancakes can be quite labor intensive. That’s why they make the perfect Sunday morning breakfast.

    Hey now, if you ever need to share or vent or laugh or cry, contact me. I’m always just an email away, or you can always text. You have my phone number, right?

    Sorry you’re feeling lonely. Makes me sad. 😦

  2. You’re absolutely right. This is YOUR blog and you can write whatever you want. I, for one, will always read because life is never always happy, happy, is it?

    I’m probably my crankiest in between work being done and dinner getting on the table.

    lately when i lay down at night, my mind is just racing and i feel completely emotionally vulnerable. i really need to shake it off. i talked to my hubs last night, i don’t know if it’s just the nasty winter weather getting me down or what?! i hope we both get that spunk back soon! ((hugs))

  4. Those pancakes look so good!! I must get coconut oil!! I know it is so much healthier and has so many amazing benefits!!!

    Hey we all have bad days, and it is your blog so you can post whatever you want! Love ya!!!


  5. you are totally allowed to vent on your blog, any time you want! and you know we’re always here for you. if you need someone to chat with, never hesitate to contact me. I’m always here for you!

  6. Hi CoCo darlin’. Don’t even TRY to worry that you’re not posting only cheery happy posts. We all know realistically that THAT isn’t really life and nobody is always happy. I have definitely had my own share of feeling emptiness and loneliness, especially with this job that I’m at. I know that it must be especially hard for you because after a long day of work, it’s even more lonely to go home to an empty apartment since your loved ones aren’t nearby. If it’s a friendly voice you want to hear, feel free to give me a ring!!! I know I can’t offer much, (and sometimes all you want is a hug or someone to baby you) but I’m here! I would have to say, TRY to think toward the positive side and PLAN ahead for things to look forward to! Plan your next weekend, or what you’ll do with Star next! Or a new project you can start on – community service maybe? Makeup lesson for little girls? 🙂 hehehe Just silly ideas, but you get the point.

    I hope you feel better after today. Most of the time, it’s just 1 REALLy bad, REALLY lonely day, and then things brighten up. Love you girlie!!!!

  7. For me its the night time. I am a morning person all the way, and at night i just get cranky and can get down right mean.

    Those pancakes look soo yummy 🙂

  8. Sorry you are feeling lonely, but I’m so glad you are sharing your feelings on your blog. You are so right, it is supposed to be foremost for you! 🙂 Hopefully, writing helps a bit…

    I love the 30 minutes right before I go to bed. The toddler is asleep, the house is quiet, and I can enjoy some herbal tea and relax a bit.

  9. Don’t worry about being negative…we’re all human and we all have positive and negative feelings. And this is your blog…a place for you to relax and let all of your emotions out. (And we’ll always be here to listen! 😉 )

    Those pancakes look incredible and I can’t wait for the dim sum recipe! 🙂

  10. It’s so important to remember your blog is for you! We all have negative thoughts sometimes. I know I’ve been having a rough few weeks and vent about it a ton, but that’s okay. You should always feel like you have someone to talk to! Gchat me when you need a friend!

  11. Sorry you had such a bad day. We’ve all been there. The best thing to do is put it behind you, and make sure the next day is better.

  12. Ah, Coco, don’t only post the happy posts…this blog is all you, and that includes your down moments, too. And otherwise, how can WE as bloggers and friends cheer you up?

    I’m sending you a huge virtual hug right now…I know and understand the sudden looming of loneliness that attacks you at times…but remember that each day, there is someone thinking about you, no matter where you are!

  13. Oh man, sorry your Sunday didn’t go so well… but I think it’s great that you didn’t let it get to you in the moment. I also know it can be sad to be lonely and not have someone to talk to, but maybe you can call Star or go on webcam with him? And you know you always have us bloggie friends. 🙂 I’m so jealous of your waffle maker! I wish I could make a huge batch of waffles and freeze them for when I don’t feel like cooking.

  14. em….sounds like you are really down this days. Home sick? you should cheer up!! you just saw your parents and you and star just got married!! so many wonderful things happens around you. shouldn’t ask for too much coco ;-D and you can always call me if you want to vent your negative feelings out!

    that black saseme cake looks really yum!! how come I have never tried that kind of dim sum?

  15. You write what you feel girl. That’s one purpose of writing right? And blogging too! It is your blog and you should express yourself as you feel. You know that already 🙂

    Your pancakes are so perfectly round!

  16. Aww, I’m sorry you got down.

    Lately, being pregnant I seem to be vulnerable alot more. Not crazy emotional but I’m more empathetic….which is saying alot since I’m already too empathetic. If someone around me is feeling sad or bad I feel just as bad as they do.
