...but to that list; I've added baking, cake decorating, pastry arts, chocolate, food photography and many more silly little hobbies. Not only did I have passion to sustain one love... I had enough to bring on more challenges to learn new things; to show passion in my newly acquired skills.
I've often been asked; "How is this possible in such a short period of time?"
...I do sometimes stop to wonder.
Here is what I know.
A singer without fans has merely a voice,
A writer without a book has merely words,
and a blogger without readers has merely a page in this infinite space.
...and for passionate little Su; the entrepreneur without supporters is merely left with a dream.
Kind words from faithful readers, thoughtful emails and supportive gestures from friends and family is everything that makes this all possible.
I do acknowledge how difficult things will be for me in the near future....but i dare not disappoint those who believe in what I do.
Some choose to think that Su inflates her ego with daily compliments and sweet emails from strangers all day... but truth is; it is barely enough to feed her confidence! haha
Second guessing myself must be one of my favourite past times. *blush* So silly! hehe
A little girl wrote me a thank you note a few days ago, for these cupcakes that I had prepared for her and sis to present to their teachers at school.
It wasn't prepared for what I was about to feel. I was so extremely blown away by her sincerity and charm.... I could picture exactly how excited and delighted she was from how she wrote.. I must have read it a million times. This little girl is so expressive in her writing...
In my opinion she pens better than most older kids can attempt!
I can't help but share a few lines of this incredibly adorable email! *giggle* I hope my sweet little angel wont mind.
Hello Magician Cheh-cheh,I wanted to thank you for making my teachers so happy, so I begged mummy for your email address.Do you know why I call you magician cheh-cheh? Because only a magician can turn everything into a cake! I visit yout blog during my one hour surfing time on Saturdays, to stare at all the super cool cakes that you made.....When I came from school yesterday and saw the cupcakes, I was so excited that I was jumping up and down. Mummy had to hold on to me, worried that I might damage the cupcake. I like the LV cupcake best - it looked so real. I thought mummy cut out the handle from her LV bag. Haha! I was so shocked when mummy told me that you made it. It is so real.....you are so clever, cheh-cheh. Three cheers to you..I brought the cupcakes to school this morning for my teachers. My daddy helped me to hold the boxes when I gave them to my teachers. They were so surprised with my thank-you gift, and so shocked with your better-than-magic cupcakes. One of my teachers thought that it was a box of toys! Can you imagine?Mummy, Daddy, Cheh-Cheh and I was so excited over your cupcakes that we forgot to take any picture of them. So silly, huh?
Oh, we ate the cupcakes that you gave us last night. It was super yummy delicious. Normally Mummy does not take any cakes, but after taking a small bite of the mocha from Daddy, she wanted to whole cupcake to herself. She refused to share with any of us!The other flavour was lemon, right? Mummy stole a small bite from me, and liked it too. You know, Mummy would normally take a small bite of any dessert from Daddy only. This is the first time I see her finish an entire cupcake, in record time too. You are simply the best of the best!Luv & Kisses,AriannaP/S Daddy gave me special permission tonight to use my notebook (I normally only get to use my notebook on Saturdays
It's these little feelings that make EVErything worthwhile. It makes risks worth taking.. it gives meaning to this dream I hang on to so persistently. I want to meet her and her sis one day... I'm sure they are just as charming as their lovely mom.
Thank you darling Arianna for being the cherry a top my cupcake!
