    "The Malaysian Kitchen" by Christina Arokiasamy.

    The pandan is an integral part of Malaysian and Indonesian desserts. As my Balinese friends would say, "The kitchen gods are always watching, so we must respect each ingredient, including the pandan, for without our earth's bounty we would not be able to enjoy such delicious flavors." Pandan leaves impart herbal and vanilla-like flavors; this recipe uses pure pandan juice, which is extracted from the fresh leaves. This lends a subtle matcha green tea-like flavor and distinctive fragrance. This dessert is a cousin to flan, and much loved in Malaysia for high tea.
    Some of the ingredients, like pandan leaves, might be hard to track down, but the photos look great and the instructions are simple.
    I'm super lazy and not in the mood to do anything. Bite me, ENTP.

    Sounds really good, I'll be checking the blog for updates, hope it works out as it appears in the recipe book

    Reading a bunch of books at the moment, Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig, Walt Whitman's Guide to Manly Health and Training, Vasily Grossman's Life and Fate, also reading bits from Benjamin Kunkel's Utopia or Bust (that's a good book I think Tellenbach would like) and I've not finished Ray Russell's Haunted Castles.

    Though that said, I'm trying to curtail my reading a little, or manage my time to allow more time for walking, I want to get some of these books read that I can get rid of them and make some space.

    Just finished reading Circe by Madeline Miller. So good, y'all. If you like Greek mythology, do yourselves a favor and read it. It's one of the best reimaginings of the story I've ever come across.

    I was reading Iain Levison A Working Stiff's Manifesto: A Memoir of Thirty Jobs I Quit, Nine That Fired Me, and Three I Can't Remember

    This book is madness, some of the jobs this guy takes on and they hired him and he didnt have any experience or know what he was doing, if its to be believed he had extra special bluffing skills, some of it is shocking but it some how is not completely unbelievable, like one place he worked were the staff were robbing the place to make ends meet, I feel bad for him most of the time reading it but I also think some of the businesses or employers are just in awful fixes too.

    There's some interesting asides about the rich, particularly the kids of the rich, which rings very, very true. Anyone who has read or seen The Bling Ring would probably like this book too. It also seems to really ring true given some of the press coverage I've read from the US of infamous pseudo-celebrities like nazi troll no. 1 and stuff like that.

    Started 'Dead Souls' by Gogol a few nights ago. It seems promising.
