Me? Power? Come on! That's ridiculous!!

Poised for Power. Wahhhhhhhh.... hahaha I had a sacarstic smirk on my face when i read it! LOL As i browsed through the entire wall trying to find a picture of myself (how vain!) hehe I recognized so many many famous faces! I was starstruck.. i thought to myself.. wow.. I'm on the wall with THESE people?! Mindblowingly humbling experience for me.
It was an honour.. okay wait.. a great great honour to have been picked as Prestige magazine's Top 40 under 40. And to be the youngest of the 40! OMG! that's ridiculous! *proud grin*
There were corporate CEO's, world class atheletes, actresses, internationally known music artists, scientists and inventors with knowledge to change mankind.. and I... the baker girl who makes Delectable cakes! Haha.. seriously; i was just incredibly humbled and amused to be part of it all.
Congratulations to the rest of the 39! Who some of which are my customers and dear friends; and some who I look up to as example.
My parents and sis came along to watch.. and I got to get on stage for a tiny 'throphy' which I will keep forever!!

what an amazing achievement, Su! I've been your biggest fan the second I stumbled into your blog. You have inspired me ever since with your tremendous talent, amazing creativity, and yet you're so humble and down to earth. I hope can meet you one of these days (after my two kids have grown, of course... and in a meantime, I have to be grounded for a while..) CONGRATULATIONS again, you deserve it!
