The culinary meme

i got this when im blog walking and decided to answer it . hehhehehe get to know me more! *winks*

What is your first memory of baking/cooking on your own?
cookies for idul fitri (moslem's biggest day) when i was 5,maybe? from that moment i love baking ever since.

Who had the most influence on your cooking?
My mom taught me the basics. but later i found out cooking is my way to relieve some stresses beside reading novels.

Do you have an old photo as “evidence” of an early exposure to the culinary world and would you like to share it?
arhhhhh , i dont think i have the photos of me in the kitchen lol

Mageiricophobia – do you suffer from any cooking phobia, a dish that makes your palms sweat?

i guess no lol im kinda lazy to try bake macaroons, tho lol

What would be your most valued or used kitchen gadgets and/or what was the biggest letdown?
My most valued would have to be the my kitchen scale. got it as my last year birthday ! and the biggest disappointment? Hmmm… maybe tons of my pans that i hardly use because i usually only use my 22 round pan to bake cakes.
