I felt a little uneasy. A little unsure.. and I suppose nervous in general.
The room was filled with anxious students; but it was as though the entire waiting hall was empty. I stuck on a silly sticker onto my chest; it was for them to identify me loud and clear... Su-Yin. The stickers remind me of 'help' groups and self improvement seminars. *shrug*
It was 10 minutes to 4pm and I could sense that everyone around me was just a little too shy to begin making friends; I caught the eye of a pretty young girl across from me. She saw me, and glanced away, looked at me again and this time checked out my name tag. I smiled at her to break the awkward silence. She surprises me by walking over. She goes "Do you write a blog online?"
I lose blood in my brain for a couple of seconds and then begin to blush continuously all over. Haha as I gathered myself between giggles we made conversation and spoke about travels; she was so pleasant, I was thrilled. Of course; I handed her a namecard; and reminded her that I made cakes *wink*
Very quickly; an hour of class came to an end; It was amusing. The classroom of quiet individuals out in the hallway were now roaring with laughter and dancing comfortably in each others hands. *shrug* It was Salsa; it's difficult not to warm up to your partners considering how we were reminded to look at their faces at all times. Pretty intimidating for shy people like me.
As we bid our goodbyes another young girl comes up to me with "You look very familiar; are you Su Yin; the girl who makes pretty cakes?"
I didn't know what to say. I don't remember what I said. I must have babbled something ridiculously confusing. *slaps head* People in Malaysia don't usually come up to me with such first lines. *laughs* I had to give her a hug. It was an awesome feeling. Of course I did conveniently slip her a couple of name cards too! *grin*
I don't know what the majority of blog hoppers come in to see; but I presume it is Cakes. Not so much the writing or food photography I'm guessing.
Haha would love to get feedback guys.
I woke up one morning and decided I was inspired by sheep! and that very night; I received an order confirmation for a christening cake. I thought to myself Sheep it is.
Really I'm not kidding; it is as simple as that.
I don't spend hours gathering inspiration... I just grab whatever comes. Be it in my dreams or in my daily encounters.
