HP Masterchef

HP is conducting its own Masterchef competition. It is really just a ploy to have people supply food for its fortnightly "Under the Clock" meetings. After much coercion, Wendy agreed to represent the Testing team, and Charles, the C Smart team. The secret ingredient was strawberries. Wendy prepared a white chocolate cheesecake, and it looked as good as it tasted. Charles baked a Strawberry Coffee cake. It may not look pretty, but it was yummy. Sadly, neither won. They lost to Ken Jones' Strawberry Sponge cake. The upside though is neither will need to cook again for the succeeding rounds. C Smart Masterchef competition, anyone?

Introducing Ishtar Shi

I graduated from Monash University with a masters degree in Business Information Systems. My interest in IT did not develop until I started my university study. During my six-year study in IT, I eventually took my first step onto this beautiful world and will explore more and find my own path.
I enjoy watching films, listening to rock music, reading sci-fi/fantasy, history and psychology books. Also I am a huge anime fan. Practicing Karate-do is my favourite way of maintaining fitness. Travelling to new places, experiencing different cultures and communicating with people of different backgrounds always make me happy.
