Nov 2010 Weddings

I made the flowers myself, it's not easy but the result made this cake one-of-a-kind, well not to say it's the most gorgeous cake but you won't get the flowers anywhere else in KL, yeay to me (oh dear, I'm in one of those moods again).

Human Vs Robots = Gadgets Vs Bonds

We live in a world that's going thru a fast changing life style, if the generation before us lose their jobs to machines, I'm losing my kids to gadgets , and it's all up to me to decide, which is tough if there are totally 2 different individuals in the house. Old fashion? Call me what u want, if old-fashion means the last bit u have as a human then, be it! You share a life with someone who u don't even want to converse with, I think as a robot, u are the one who's confused. If everything that u built so far does not leave u with a bit of interest (enough to make u put away your gadgets), then there's no point claiming they are yours. It doesn't take a genius to tell u it is plain rude to be conversing with people on twitter while having friends what more family members with u, the ones who should matter most in your life since who you are now is a combination of the existence of these people.

If u stuff your kids with gadgets, name it ipod, ipad, PSP, PS2, Xbox+Kinect, u send them away, their bond is not with u but with the machines, and on your part, u say u care but u actually want to get rid of them or softer words, take away the time u should spend with them.

I'm not saying I should be "katak bawah tempurung" for not being supportive of the gadgets idea. But each and everything we have has a limit, Xbox Kinect is an excellent tools for family-get-together (meaning one of them is not free to chat on twitter while spending time with family- there's a reason why they call it QUALITY TIME!)

Having said all this, I'm a pro-technology, I'd be happiest if one day the Russian 500-days team make it to Mars, or if Planet Nibiru decides to pass by bringing along existence from other universe. I would love to live to see things materialised.

I take this opportunity to say thank you to someone who says "take care of yourself" which convey a totally huge meaning, and it triggered, I SHOULD take care of myself, love myself more!

To my customers, here some wedding cakes from someone who loves herself more than she did yesterday, happy hols, and recommend my cakes to your family and friends, TQ

I like this one although I would prefer less flowers than this, bride wanted a flowery flow so I had to fill up the tiers with some, well with tons :))

This is actually not one of my bests but the bride request for that color combination, i can do better and hope to do better everytime.

I must say, this is my favourite for the month. Not easy to do, but the result is what I've imagined. To the bride, hope she likes my work.

Sept 2010 Birthdays

Flowery cake for 7yr old

Optimus Prime cake
I consider this one as my fail projects. Something went wrong that day, the fondant went soft and melty. I gave the customer a big discount expecting her to be dissapointed at me, but NOPE, she came back with a warm message saying how cool the cake was, haihhh, I should believe in myself more ;-)

Spongebob cake
I like this one, my kids love SB, all 3 can sing the lyrics so well, it amazes me. I was preparing some icing and saw them having a little concert in my room, they said " It's Spongebob mummy!"

Mickey Mouse Club house cake
I just finished 200 pcs cupcakes today, it's a whole day job. Now feeling unaware and unalert of the news and what's going on in the world. Worst is when I have to let the kids being taken care of by their bibik. They are learning that mummy/mama (dono which one will be permanent) has to work for the money.

Tantrum Kids
I've been searching for ways to handle my kids. Each has a super tantrum. I came across this 2 books (will give Kino a visit tomorrow)
1) The Explosive Child by Dr Ross Greene
2) The Highly Sensitive Child by Elaine Aron
I used to think there must be something lacking in my parenting skill. My kids aren't just normal. Every single change of plan or if a friend did something unfavourable, I'd be their convenient target, and the battle isn't easy, the whole house will go chaotic. I hope there'll be some methods I could adopt so I could help my kids go through the series a lot easier than they used to.

It's peaceful and absolute quiet in the house, just the way I like it, kids are asleep, I'm left alone with minimum light at one corner of this small living room. And I dont understand why "Miley Cyrus - When I look at you" keep humming in my brain. Maybe I should call it a night and hope Bruce Springsteen will come in my dream and lullaby me Magic, goonite everyone!

August 2010 Birthdays

Toy Story cake
The customer wanted edible image for this one, but 3 days notice is not enough to order, so she asked me to draw one of the characters, I hope it does look like Woody. I took the kids to see Toy Story 3 in a big "rombongan", went with Irene and Suzi and their kids. But the movie didn't do much to them, it's one of those they never mention to see again, unlike Prince of Persia, that one mummy also don't mind Dastan a few more times ;-)

Cake of the month! Thank you Alia for asking me to do this cake. The color choice is very intereting. I like!

Winnie the Pooh cake from teacher Madya. Appy Bday Nina!

August 2010 Cupcakes

Full Moon cupcakes
I know I dont have to make the booties everytime but I just can't resist them, they look so cute!

2 pastel-color cupcakes for 2 different girls. I know I've been lazy updating my blog but here I am, back again with some of the photos. I didn't even snap the 250 cuppies I made. Anyway, I'm happy. I went to see Slash concert last night at Sunway surfbeach. Awesome performance, Awesome Slash! Will put one of the pics later.

Winnie the Pooh for 22 years old? Well, Pooh is adorable to resist. I like this one, my head must be right that day to come up with perfect color combination, well done me! (what's wrong with me today!?!!)

A customer asked for cupcakes with flowers, she ordered 100 pcs. And said the school kids were happy to see them.
