The haze may have receded somewhat…but there’s still a slight “murkiness” in the air. And with the somewhat cleared sky, the sizzling hot sun now comes bearing down on us. Other than mask, I recommend sun block to be applied too…errr, no mood to go outdoor? How about hogging the kitchen? Nothing beats trying an easy dessert-making session to break the boredom, build family bonding….and enjoy the delicious fruit of your labour.
