I too believe in 1 Malaysia.

This blog of mine will probably never display my personal ideals or perspective on local politics. *laugh*
But then again.... this post is about the faith I have in 1 Malaysia and our Prime Minister on his birthday last weekend. From initially having 2 weddings to maneuver; I eventually landed myself into a 6-cake situation all due about the same time. Needless to say; there wasn't much sleep or eating going on that weekend for Su. haha
Cake requests for the Prime Minister's office and private residence came from left and right. All of them on short notice and I could only make promises I was confident to keep. It was a hectic weekend for the elves and I; my family was helping enthusiastically as well. We did them with pride and we gave each cake all the effort we could afford. This was pretty exciting! It's my first time creating 4 cakes for the same person! haha
Datuk Najib Tun Razak; our PM believes very much in the 1 Malaysia campaign; which many of his supporters have requested the cake to be it's logo and cakes which represented the 1 Malaysia idea. I personally love the idea of 1 Malaysia :)

1Malaysia strongly to emphasizes national unity, ethnic tolerance. The 2010 values of 1Malaysia as articulated by Najib Razak are perseverance, a culture of excellence, acceptance, loyalty, education, humility, integrity, and meritocracy.[2]

I have just naively wrote a short note to our PM. I do wonder if he'll ever read it personally.
hehe.. I was about to forward it to him via the public voice website for 1 Malaysia.. but *shrug* it would be funny if he ever did respond.

Dear Mr Prime Minister; YAB Dato' Sri Haji Mohd. Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak

Happy Belated Birthday to you! I hope you had a pleasant celebration with your family and friends last weekend.

I’m sure you are very busy and have an extremely tight schedule so here’s a brief Hello from me. My name is Su; I’ve just recently returned to Malaysia from my studies and travel abroad and have begun a small business selling designer cakes and desserts in several shopping malls about town. I run Delectable by Su; and bake fancy couture cakes for weddings, birthday and the sort.

In the short time that I’ve been back; I’ve come to realize and appreciate the true beauty of our country; the people and its diversity. Just like the many Malaysians who stand behind your projection of 1 Malaysia; I strongly believe it’s ability to cultivate a wonderful country to call home in years to come. I want to take this opportunity to share with you the photos of the cakes that I’ve been commissioned to create for you by those who trust and love you dearly as well bid you a grateful “thank you” for the work and commitment you’ve selflessly put into bringing 1 Malaysia to life for us.

I understand this note to you is pretty informal and by no means I intend for it to be disrespectful, but here’s a big birthday *hug and appreciative smiles from all of us at Delectable. I sincerely hope your host of dedicated staff and beloved family enjoyed the cakes we were very honoured to have had the opportunity to make for you this year.

Thank you Sir!


Su + the Delectable Elves

Whilst delivering the cakes in the morning; dad and I had a joke in the car..
It was pretty early in the morning.. and we were to drive the cake to his private residence where deliveries were made to the kitchen. I said to dad;
It would be major cool if I bumped into Mr.PM perched over the breakfast table with his morning coffee, toast in hand, striped pyjamas and his newspaper. He'd look up and I'd wish him a big wholesome; HappY BIRTHDAY!! haha imagine him putting his toast down.. smiling and holding up a peace sign responding with a "YO!"
Hahahaha that'd be so awesome; and completely just a fantasy. LOL
... he wasn't there :( no breakfast table and no sight of Mr Prime Minister. *giggle*

maybe NEXT YEAR!??!! I wonder if he wears striped pyjamas... :P haha

The 1 Malaysia idea sounds great, but I can hardly see it implemented in real. I guess not in this generation, but in the one of your grandchildren. :)

Yeah, he wears a 1-Malaysia striped pyjamas pants! :P

Wow ! Both cakes design and note for YAB are superb ! How could you think of writing those lines after sleepless and no food for days and nights ? Amazing and incredible attitude you have here !

I am glad you come back to Malaysia, to where home is, I hope your cake designs and business will achieve one success after another.

By far, all your deliveries, this must be the highlight, even though just to the kitchen !

PM in PJ, no lah, he wears sarong lah !
