Sick Marathon~!

Monday was my exam day, I was so excited as this will be the last paper that I need to sit for (no exams next semester!) and yet worried that I will not do well cause don't really know what will come out and was kinda blur about the subject that I'm studying thanks to someone (lecturer who do not really give lectures).

Worries about exam was finally over at 4.40pm, I was filled with joy~! There's so many things I wanna do...women shopping, supermarket shopping, karaoke, steamboat, movie marathon, cooking, baking, and of course blogging!!! But, I got a briefing on Tuesday cause I'm going to work on Wednesday! Well, after the briefing I went home...feeling a little weird. Weird = Sick! @_@

I'm having a slight fever, cough, sorethroat on Wednesday morning but still headed for work at KL Convention Centre. During work I felt even weaker as there wasn't time for water when you're thirsty, no food when it's lunch time, and even no washroom when you need to "pee pee"! I lost my voice, lost what hungry means, lost my "conciousness" on how my body feels. But at least I still remember to smile to the customers. Phew~! After work I was so so sick, my back feels like breaking apart and I could not even walk properly. I can feel the heat within me..I'm feeling so so freakin hot! High fever? The feeling of sick while working and also after work was totally unbearable. Finally down and could not work for the next 2 days.

Ok, long story cut short...mild fever on day 1, high fever on day 2, nose bleed (all of a sudden, it's on and off for few hours!) on day 3, serious cough on day 4 and day 5. Can this be called as sick marathon?


Now, I'm still not fully recovered. Still have serious cough, flu, and little bit of sorethroat. I'm going to post a short and simple cake recipe that I got from the Internet. I was searching for some recipes and then I discovered this, Banana Walnut Upside Down Cake Recipe at Epicurious.com.


This recipe is easy. But based on what I baked, it's not a success or rather a failure. It's actually cake on top, slices of banana in the middle, chunks of walnuts and sugar-butter combination at the bottom before you bake it. When the cake is baked you need to invert it. It'll be sugar-butter combination and walnuts on top, slices of banana in the middle, and cake at the bottom. I do not know if I shouldn't put grease paper onto the pan before pouring the butter and sugar combination. It turned out that the sugar were all sticked onto the grease paper. I'm not sure if it wouldn't stick if it's pour straight onto the pan or not. I have to scratch out the sugar mixture from the grease paper.


Well, the cake do not look pretty but it does taste nice though. I would say it's a pretty decent cake to be eaten. I did not add in maple syrup as said from the recipe. I also cut almost half of the sugar from what was indicated from the recipe and it still tastes sweet enough. I would give it another try as it's a simple recipe. You can get the recipe from the above link.
