For the first time ever, I said yes to my first big gig : a hantaran on a friend’s engagement. She only told me a day in advance, so I didn’t exactly have the luxury of time to think of design and buying the ingredients.
Friends have been ordering brownies, chocolate cake and cupcakes before. No biggie.
But this time around, the effort and feelings were tad different since it is for hantaran. I don’t have any margin for error.
I slept for only 4 hours yesterday and wake up at 5.45am today to ensure that I have ample time to deliver the cake by 9am- siap mimpi2 lagi what design to make.
*Yes, I was totally in an extreme giddy mode since the day I said yes to deliver the order*
I don’t know about you guys and your hobby, but I really222 love baking. I mean to the extend that I couldn’t get a good night sleep sebab excited to do it the next day. And to the extend that I want to tender my resignation from the current job, enrol in baking classes, applying for an SME loan and open up a bakery. Yes, it’s to that extend.
I’m happy that I have a hobby. A beneficial hobby, I might add. To the very least, if I don’t have anything to do (yeah right) and no one to turn to, I can always confide in my kitchen utensils. At least they have always been honest to me. And don’t get me started on the smell of cake in the oven when it started to bake. Heavenly.
You don’t get first impression twice, so I have to ensure that my first try-out is to be remembered by the audience and potential clients.
I spend appx. 5 hours in the kitchen (preparing the batter, baking the cupcake, waited for it to cool on rack, prepare the icing and decorate) but it was all worthy coz I think I’ve made a good first impression -I already received order until year end 🙂
Ok enough about the passion and excitement coz this feeling, it’s indescribable. My words won’t do any justice to what I actually feel 🙂
Oh yes. It’s another bestfriend wedding. She requested me to be the bridesmaid but I have to politely refused coz I don’t have a creme coloured baju I want to hang out with the friends yang datang. I was there the whole day tolong apa2 yang patut – from pakaikan her baju to tolong angkat baju kat ampaian when rain started to pour :). One thing I don’t get, selalu kena sakat dengan photog (am I too friendly with people???). Wait for him to tag me in FB for our controversial pic 🙂
Ps : Good marriage, dear!
