Cocopandan Chiffon

I think making chiffon is part of my comfort zone. It relaxes and calms me down. :) I have to say that this is the one recipe that you almost couldn't fail - it's foolproof. I give ALL the credit to my dear mom. I used the basic recipe that I used here and added 1/2 tsp of cocopandan extract for this one.

I had brought this to church on Sunday and it received a very warm welcome by my friends there. This is what makes me really happy... when my baked goodies can put a smile on some one's face. :)

There's been a lot on my mind lately - wedding preparation, engaged life, marriage preparation, moving back to Indonesia, work-life balance, work-hobby balance, and all kinds of other stuff that crowds my brain. I want to be a good daughter, sister, friend, fiance, christian, and coworker. And I'm trying real hard - but I was reminded that I can't do all that on my own. I was reminded that I need to constantly be recharged in God's grace.

Especially with the big day (wedding day) and the bigger day (moving to Indo/Singapore with Alvin) coming up, there's been quite a bit of things that I need to think and pray about. While I was at Sunday service, God reminded me in my heart of this verse:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)


I'm in good hands. Are you in good hands?


  1. Great post, you have such a great perspective. Your post reminded me of a great verse:

    So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
    -Matthew 6:31-33

  2. Kevin, thanks for the verse :) It happened to be one of my favorites too!
