I think I’m getting hooked with baking, I’m actually enjoying the process, the purpose that I’m baking for my family and soon for my friends. Hearing them, especially my husband saying ”it tastes good” or “it taste different” is a challenge, I take them as a constructive criticism that in time I’ll be able to create my own recipe that will really really taste great. (Ambisyosa Lang hehehe)
But baking is also tiring, especially when mixing ingredients. Therefore, I needed a partner that will make my baking life easier.
I was juggling between the following;
A 3D mixer with stand and mixing bowl. Price P1999.75
An Imarflex mixer also with stand and mixing bowl, P1699.00
Since, I am only allowed to purchase an item less than 1400 because that’s the remaining points I had in my BDO Reward Card, I chose, this 3D hand mixer at a price tag of P949.75.
The 3D New Generation Hand Mixer had the following features;
240V – 60Hz, 200W
4-Speed Control setting (for stir, mix, beat and whip)
Comes with chrome plated beaters and dough hooks
With convenient ejector to release beaters
Cords can be securely wrapped around the base of the mixer for tidy storage
Did I purchase the item at the appropriate price? Well, if I probably bought days before, I might get the previous price at P799.00 (the old tag was still attached at the lower part of the mixer’s body). Sad to think that the increase was approximately P150.00 (imagine that big!), but since I already bought it and 3D is still my preferred brand, I think I can forget the price issue in time.
FYI. This is the actually my 5th item bought using my BDO Rewards, I'm so happy to say that I'm one of the ever satisfied BDO clients because of the rewards I get by banking, transacting and shopping. My remaining balance is 548, I'll take note how much points will I gain after 1 year. :-)

On Sunday, my baking partner and I had a session. Our mission was to bake a “banana chocolate chip muffins”. Luckily “Mr. Banana vendor passed by and carrying with him “green banana” (I forgot the local name), my officemate told me that it’s the best variant for banana cake compared to “lakatan”.
After a few minutes of preparation + baking time, these are the finished products: the Yummy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins.
The taste was great for a first timer, and of course there were “no holes, or hollow spaces”, the muffins were really compact, because according to my officemate the hollow spaces created when cooked were caused by uneven mixing. So I’m glad I had my new baking partner the 3D 4-Speed Hand Mixer.
