Isn’t gelatine good for health, so make more durian jelly?
You wouldn’t believe it but it was one of those days when I thought nothing would go right. That day I decided to try my hand at cheating. Not real cheating as in committing some crime but a paltry version … just a simple bluff or distraction so that no one knew what I did. Yes, processing durians is not as simple as it may appear so I tried pre-processed durians to make a durian jelly.

Home made bread that does not go stale for 9 days after baking
After years of experimenting, I think I understand why bread made with the Batter and Dough Method can last for 9 days without going stale or drying up. No stale bread anymore for me if I am making bread at home with this no knead method. Actually it was an accidental discovery. When I made bread the conventional way – Straight Dough Method or Sponge and Dough Method, with plenty of kneading it would last about 3 days. That is by the 4th day the bread would be stale and dry.

home made bread
In my last article I was showing you how to make white bread with the Batter and Dough method. With this method I did not have to knead the bread and it is really easy to make bread with just a little effort.

This is how to make bread rise a lot more.

How to make your YouTube video louder
I had a tough time trying to make my YouTube videos louder. The problem was that my sound on my videos were soft, almost inaudible. Initially, I thought it was my microphone. It definitely contributed to the problem. I bought a new mic after going through several shops and testing all their PC microphones. Then I noticed that I was shouting into the mic to get the sound louder and clearer. I tried covering part of the mic so that all of my voice goes into the mic but that caused a weird type of echo. In the mean time as I produced more and more videos I bought Wondershare Video Editor as this product was within my budget and superb to use. It did everything I needed to get done.

taking time lapse photos with a cheap digital camera
Honestly when I bought my Nikon Coolpix P310 a few years ago I was not thinking about taking time lapse photos. My main concern was a tight budget and a high resolution image. It provided both features in that it was not an expensive DSLR and it was 16 megapixel digital camera. I did not know it was a camera with time lapse mode. I had been taking still photographs for this blog as it was difficult to hold the camera in one had and make bread at the same time so it never occurred to me that I could make videos of my bread experiments. Then one day a month ago, I decided to buy a tripod as I was doing experiments with deep frying potato chips and plantain fries. Those first video recording attempts quickly evolved into time lapse photographs.

Forgiveness of sins and false teachings in the church
I must tell you that after I wrote about evil works and judgment and Judgment Day, I have not attended church for some time. Over the years, I had visited many churches and kept my distance from the pastors. I guess it is because I began to disagree with many pastor’s preachings. Many of them are preaching false teachings and I guess this is to win over their congregation rather than to tell the whole truth.
Is Forgiveness of Sins a Sales Pitch
You know, in sales, you try to please your customers as much as possible so that they will return for more. Eventually, you develop the pitch that pleases the most number of customers. A pitch that your customers want to hear so that they will part with their money. I do not know if the final pitch is the truth or some awe inspiring, ego massaging, money releasing statement that gets you the money.
Are our pastors doing the same?

Apple juice with soda makes a refreshing drink
After the last homemade tomato juice I decided to try out a similar recipe with apples. This can be tricky as there are a whole variety of apples. I decided to go with the Granny Smith apples which are imported form New Zealand and France. They are smaller than other varieties and slightly on the sour side and are really crisp to the bite. In fact of all the variety of apples the Granny Smith is my favorite. Unlike the tomato juice, I did not add sugar or salt but substituted the sugar with Ice Cream Soda from F&N. Ice cream soda is quite delicious on its own so I decide to add ice cream soda as the sweetener.
