One of the shows that I religiously watched as a kid is a show with adults teaching kids make crafts and sing songs. In my head I can see what it looks like. I knew it was done in a pastel-colored studio with cardboard and stuff. And I remember the adults having British accent. For the longest time, I was thinking of what it's called but I wasn't able to remember.
Fast forward to more recent times...
When I first heard of Soft Kitty from the show Big Bang Theory, I thought it sounded REALLY familiar but I can't figure out why. Today, just because of randomly browsing the internet, I ended up reading that Soft Kitty is originally called Warm Kitty and it was sung in a show called Play School.
Yes, it's the show that I used to watch when I was a kid! OMG! Nostalgic! I even remember the words to the intro song.
There's a bear in there and a chair as well. There are people with games and stories to tell. Come inside, open wide, it's PLAY SCHOOL!
I remember the windows where we peek in to watch videos and guessing which window the video will show. haha
And the rocket that always has something behind it.
And of course the Bananas in Pajamas and the Teddies!
Some of the props are now part of the National Museum of Australia. Really cool!!! Now, let me watch some full episodes. Thank goodness for Youtube!
I LOVE baking. As a child who grew up with a nonworking (Not even sure if it's not really working or just no one wants to use it) oven, I delighted myself in watching Food Network. My favourite being Jacques Torres.
I started baking when we moved here to Canada. At first using mixes.
Then afterwards, I got enough confidence to make something from scratch. I don't even remember the first thing I made. My baking is not perfect as I almost always burn the bottom of cookies or mess up the icing of cupcakes. One time, I even had flames in the oven as I left something incidentally in there that wasn't supposed to be there and it got burned. But my family is always supportive and always wipe out whatever I make however they look like. hehe For the past weeks, I have been baking more cookies and trying to learn how not to burn the bottom, how to make all kinds - chewy, crunchy, cake-y cookies. I managed to make batches which "can be sold". I was so happy when the first 'perfect' batch came out of the oven! hahaha Chocolate Chip Cookies
Peanut Butter Cookies
Neiman Marcus Chocolate Cookie
Indeed, practice makes perfect. Hindi magically makakagawa ka ng anything perfect. We have to practice, practice, try and try until we reach a result that is great and satisfying. :)
