When a food critic turns the poison pen on herself

The Mummy Returns July 24, 2009

Filed under: Inane stuff — crummb @ 5:39 pm

Look who’s baaaaaaaaaack…

I’ve gone AWOL for a very long three months but it’s not without good reason, folks.

1. I was renovating! Yup. Changed the floors, hacked a wall, relined a bathroom, overhauled my entire kitchen and installed a brand spankin’ new oven which is bigger and meaner! But…

2. I lost my camera. So I can’t take photos of my lean-and-mean oven to show y’all yet. But soon.

3. Last but not least, I have not been blogging because, haha, I have a bun baking in my other oven! Details of that coming up soon, but suffice it to say that I am all pickled and sng-buayed out 🙂

Not sure when I’m gonna resume writing. But since there’s maintenance works coming up at my apartment block and the maid is going home for a month, I’m gonna stay put at my parents’ for at least two more months. Which means no baking. By October, though, I’ll be back with a vengeance. See ya then.

    hello all! boy i feel LOVED! thanks for all your nice wishes. i’ll try to start baking soon if someone can tell me how to get rid of this horrid, constantly sour aftertaste in my mouth… bleuurgh :p (nope, sng buay leaves an aftertaste too, i tried)

    • cookie Says:

      Sista, have you tried taking antacid? I took 1 tablet whenever I get that sourish taste… btw, that’s stomach acid that’s why sng buay wont help.

  8. Stef Says:

    Acid reflux lah woman…too much antacid won’t be good either.

    try chamomile tea to balance pH or if the tums is feeling gross in the morning,some plain saltine crackers (Meiji Brand) helps majorly.
    try to avoid acidic foods too and above all,elevate yourself when you sleep (nothing some pillows can’t fix) as acid reflux involves backflow of tummy contents into the esophagus (yes yes there is a nerd in me!)

    Aaahhhhhh!!!!! Such wonderful news!!!! Absolutely forgiven for not blogging, hehehehe…. When are you due? I also baking bun in my oven leh! 🙂
    Not sure if this will help you, but small constant feeds of healthy snacks like whole grain crackers n nuts? Might help to keep the acids busy! I found 2 good brands of stuff — Arnotts vitawheat crackers (Cold Storage) and Carman’s muesli bars (NTUC), absolutely weird-chemical-free and tastes yummy!
