Having returned home from graduating in the US; I remember telling Em about my hopes and dreams for this company I intend to set up.
We were window shopping about a luxurious mall and I ambitiously proclaimed " I want to be here! I want to cater to these corporate clients. I want them to have a cake!" Of course; we laughed it off like I was in my naive little world, speaking about shooting stars and thinking business was as easy as I imagined it to be.
Well; I was not ready for what dropped into my inbox 2 weeks ago.
An invitation to cater for a high end designer boutique at the exclusive Gardens, Midvalley. Ridiculous! I was tempted to exclaim in shock; but had to read the email twice before I could register that it was actually happening!
Who?! WHO?! you ask...
I was just walking past an elaborately stylish display pillar and thought to myself; "hmm Thomas Pink did a good job with the set up in Malaysia"
I've seen the brand scattered internationally through my travels but have not heard of its presence at home till recently.
It wasn't more than 15 minutes from my quiet thoughts that my blackberry began to beep with a new incoming email. It was she. From Trinidad. Oh.. coincidence? No kidding!
Haha. I'm really grateful for having people believe in my passion and creativity. She had completely lifted my hopes up for my future in this line. She trusted me to provide tasty delectable treats for this important event that she organized, and I was prepared to give her my 100%.
My photographs were a tad tacky as we were set up in the middle of a mall.. but I did make an attempt to take a couple photos of the food without looking too awkward.
At the end of the night; i returned to collect my accessories and trays only to be greeted with praise and good news. I was ecstatic! I had been worrying all night if the tiny 'Pink themed' food was well received.
Su has been so lucky to have had several angels with strong wings lift her up since she returned home from Pastry school.
I truly; TRUly am so grateful for how they've gone out of their way to help push me along my bumpy path. I sometimes feel just a 'thank you' doesn't quite express it. It isn't the money or the opportunities.. it's the trust and sincere kindness which I'm incredibly grateful for.
I'm naming these 4 Christmas angels Emily, PuiSan, Belinda and Celine.
Because they've just helped make my everyday feel like Christmas.
I suppose I should make a few angels after my 3 permanent consultants; Dad, mom and sis too. Hehe. Not forgetting my sunshine, Jo. *sigh*..I feel so lucky to be surrounded by people who support my 'freestyle' ventures. From cakes; I eventually began writing.. from that, I've now ventured into catering events too.. who knows what I'll be doing in the next couple of months! My company website isn't even ready yet! *laughs* Well there is a lot you can expect from Delectable, I promise. ;)
