Speaking of something I bought that made me happy, I’d like to talk about my oven.
If I recall correctly I think it was a Saturday afternoon when I was browsing the website of Taobao, the Chinese version of Amazon, there was a sales promotion commercial of an oven attracted me, and I was seized by whim--- why don’t I just buy one? Actually, there were tons of different brands and I just bought the best-selling one without hesitation and started the firsthand experience of baking.
I have had a sweet tooth from a very young age, and I am particularly fond of desserts. The sweet tooth drives me to try nearly every kind of cake: cupcakes, puff, cookies and so forth. But I had never tried to make one on my own or even touch a real oven until I purchased one.
It is hard and frustrating to start baking. I spent nearly a whole week learning to make a cake perfectly, I tried a bunch of times and also progressed through carefully weighing the powder, sugar and milk. I was thrilled when the beautiful cake was finally taken out from the oven.
I feel it is special to me because, firstly it is always satisfying to eat something from your own hand, and secondly it reveals the importance of taking the first step. I always fail in things that I want badly at first, which is often because of my fear to getting started. I’ve learnt from baking that it isn’t as hard as I imagined; what I need to do is just take the first step. I believe this inspiration would be helpful to me in many ways.
