When you're feeling blue .... nothing beats munching on a piece, or two, or a whole plate of chocolate cookies for that matter. In the office, during working hours, no less.
Courtesy of a fellow blogger (thanks Min!!!), who bakes, cooks and blogs her experiments all this while, and yet this is the FIRST time we get to sample her creations. Hmm ... Or rather, her modified intepretation of some random recipe.
But better than nothing, and quite timely if I may say so, as her cookies supplemented me on a barren, breakfast-less morning. An impulsive urge to reach for another bite, and then another, AND another somehow left the container half empty. Whoops. And we were supposed to sample them only, and share the cookies. But of course, sharing's a foreign word to me, not in my dictionary. Muahaha .... ^o^
So, enough babbling. What's the name for the cookies? They HAD to have a name. I insisted. But Min, being indecisive, and humble, let my imaginations run wild. Let's call them ....

P/S : No, I'm not drunk. Nor did you stumble upon the wrong blog. This is the Motormouth, posting something entirely different, for the sake of it. Office's freezing cold, (either it's the rain, or the hauntingly chilly aura of the 7th Month in Chinese calendar?) and my grey matter's frozen, at lost of what to do, or say, or whatever ....
