I like walking around without shoes.

It's the type of thing that makes me feel Happy. I get the whole 'it's dirty' bit of this peculiar habit; but it's really really fun for me. I am able to walk quicker; jump higher, skip faster... all this; with my shoes off and feet firmly touching ground. haha I love driving barefoot too! i'm sure there are many who share this love. Hehe.
You know what i miss most! wiggling my feet in warm sand covered in cool ocean waters... ahhh... feet dunking.. heavenly thoughts...pure Joy...
It could be the connection I physically feel to my surrounding environment, or maybe the soothing contrasting temperature of the ground beneath me and my body, or the hardness of the floor which gives me confidence.... it could be all of it! I've been running about the store these couple of days barefoot, putting up decorations and getting all excited about Chinese New Year! I know it's a month away; but I wanted the store to be pretty and ready before February closes in. I am in desperate need for a foot scrub and pedicure now that it's done. Everything probably just needs a couple more finishing touches and we're set! Mall patrons and our Delectable neighbours have been curious to see what I was going to do with many HUGE YEllow lanterns and a heap of red cloth! haha
I've been so lucky lately... I've had awesome advisers and a number of willing sets of hands to help me with ideas and the difficult strenuous activities. I am more than grateful to the many many elves I've recruited and fished in to bring my ideas to life! It's fun to come up with concepts; but executing them with others allows me to re-question my decisions and improve on them. IT's Excellent!!
Speaking about luck; a couple of charming sweethearts; Rita Chan and Jenny from Fillens popped into our store a month ago and brought us a little luck and love from Hong Kong! They had happened to walk past our store on their very brief visit to Malaysia for work on their magazine and was very excited to feature us in their women's lifestyle and photography.. they were quite disappointed to see the "no photography" signs all about the place! ;) well... with a simple media tag and a friendly hello; that rule can be bent a little I suppose.
The girls did an amazing amazing job photographing our store! Impromptu and with minimal gear too! I really liked the photos... though I can't read Chinese and have no idea what's written; i hope it was a positive review. Haha; from the fun they were having.. I'm going to assume so!
Aight; I'm signing off guys, I'm sorry I don't make enough time to blog; and i don't answer messages as frequently as I use to anymore... but I'm still here.. and you know where to find me; it just takes a little lag before I respond! *puppy dog pout*

XOXOXOxoxo

Hey Su, just wondering why you don't want photographs at your store. Your stuff is gorgeous and I would think that people would take pictures and show others, which might encourage more customers.

I don't know how it is in Malaysia but in NY, lots of places used to not allow pictures but now that there are a lot of bloggers, most places now allow pictures because they can get good coverage from bloggers too.

You never stop blowing my mind with each cake. If you're ever in NY, I'd like to be your first customer!

Your attention to detail once again astounds me with this Roulette table.
By the way, just read the article, it's basically about how you started out in this business, your shop's location, what goodies are available at your shop, praise, praise, praise and more praise. To be very specific about the praise, the words used were UNIQUENESS, CONTENTMENT(HAPPINESS)(apologies for the lack of a better translation)

I read the magazine ~ they're all positive comments. Your store is so beautiful, it'd be wonderful if more magazines could come and photograph it. I'd love to go if I could.
