hiding under a hat...

I have my favourite floppy hat over my head.

It's my first Saturday with all major cakes to send off at the beginning of the weekend. I was looking forward to this Saturday for a long time now... Hah... rewarding it was indeed.

I wish i could be writing lots more here and posting up pictures of my cakes to share with everyone, but the Su the 'juggle-master' can only do so much. Blogging has definitely become a 'luxury'; where i get to occasionally make time to express myself in words. Su's currently snuggling up in the quietest of corners, flopped over a sofa, shoes off, hat on and venti coffee in hand. Yes; disturb me not. Just me; my qwerty and my outlet of expression.


Su's gotten an unexpected amount of attention lately. From media; at the store; my local grocer and my favourite little coffee hang outs. Not 'freaking-out' type attention of course; just little pleasant gestures, hello su; I love what you do; cool shop; saw you on the papers sorta thing. Which is cool! real cool I suppose. It only starts to get a little less cool when i have to constantly remind myself to be watch my every gesture. From the way I speak; the clothes I wear and more importantly the way i get at that occasional wedgie. Hee.. I often make trips to the 'ladies' for my teeth digging and burping intervals with doors closed. I know it doesn't actually matter; but I feel conscious when people begin to point at me from the escalator; or stare at me as I try to buy my lunch at breadstory. Yes; i'm the 'Delectable'; but it doesn't matter that I get a fruit cake from Starbucks does it? I guess it tastes alright. *shrug*

I actually don't know why I feel fussed about this whole situation; i'm generally not a shy person; neither do I have a problem with confidence or attention. Hell; I own a blog with thousands of people invading my privacy everyday! Haha. I guess it's just how people relate Su to Delectable. Well; I'm a professional when at work; I'm serious about my job and how I manage my staff, within and beyond the outlet; but when I'm having a rough morning in my comfy pj's rocking up to the shop with eye bags to my chin; I sometimes wished I looked better; fresher.. more like THE 'Delectable' LOL. And more than often; someone would coincidently go "Hey Su; I read so much about you! Came by to check out the shop!" ... I'm thinking; oh you must think I wear pants with big red hearts on them all the time. >.<
There are more articles coming;.. podcasts, TV appearances.. all awesome stuff; mostly about me promoting the shop :) It's only getting better! Which i appreciate a lot.
Stop pointing at me kay guys.. come and say 'Hi'! come sign the guest book! I don't bite; honest.. I'm just another girl doing her thing; baking her cakes.. making friends. So please don't assume I'm on my high horse; I'm just Su-yin; the girl from Ipoh who makes pretty and fun cakes :D
Hmm.. unless I have my favourite hat on and I'm curled on a sofa + starbucks in hand; in such situations; maybe I would choose to be left alone. *giggle* I'm probably drawing up some new ideas for the shop; or coming up with a crazy new 'cake' concept! Blogging maybe?

XOXOXO;
Su

Hi Su

Congratulations on your many successes! I've been following your blog since you were at uni in Sydney and I was looking for tips on quick and easy meals for myself. Your cakes are delicious and the designs are exceptional. I'm sure there've been lots of blood, sweat and tears behind the scenes, but keep at it, because it pays off big time!

Cheers

Interesting new facet. Enjoy it!
You look really good! I think this is a chance to express yourself through your own style, to design Su, the woman behind Delectable.

Congratultions Su, nice work.

Dealing with an increasing amount of celebrity status is something you'll have to adapt to, I guess. But just be who you are- burps and all. You're adorable just as you are. I love the picture of you in the mirror :)
