When chancing across new species of humans, I was dumbfounded to find them fishing for praise, that mindless commentary from those irrelevant to their lives held so much power over them. I also grew wary of those seemingly allergic to feedback, any negativity or disagreement from their preferred practice or habits, and, conclusively, change.
On the contrary, rarely do I respond positively to praise, instead seeking out areas of improvement that can be addressed constructively. While a firm non-believer of perfection (beyond GOT7 and Park Jinyoung, of course), I've strived to achieve objectively good results by taking into consideration the perspective of a variety of users. Further constructive remarks are also welcome, with each iteration enabling growth and progress.
Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate and Coffee Frappés were enjoyed as mid-day pick-me-ups, while a soju float combining Green Apple Soju and Hazelnut Gelato from Nani's Gelato sealed off a relaxing post-stretch session.
The authentic delicacies were as astounding as the first visit: still toasty from the fryer and coated generously in cinnamon sugar.
Surely enough, the buds appeared shortly after this thought, filling my peripheral with green-ness overnight.
I commenced with a rough guideline for New York Cheesecake, scaling the quantity of crushed biscuit and melted butter for my pan size. As in many instances, my impatience tends to overtake the process: I didn't read far enough to realize the inclusion of egg yolks, thus the requirement for baking.
So, despite having utilized the scale for both butter (ignore the explosion - the new microwave is really quite powerful!) and cream cheese, I derailed after seeing "eggs" in the ingredient list.
The surface swirl was formulated by mixing strawberry jam into a small amount of the batter.
The next morning, I was dismayed to see loose edges still and a fragile cream cheese layer. Moreover it was revealed that dampness had seeped into the crust, causing it to disintegrate and lose its crunchiness. These side effects only worsened with time.
