I had much fun hosting this and i learnt i could do better, as a baker, as a blogger amidst a really challenging month of July (when my personal life was kinda in a topple). I shan't deviate from our baking topic here and the (food) theme of this blog but as my blog represents and archives the preceding chapters of my life... I would like to pen a lil note to myself here, as perhaps when i read back in months to come, i would just smile & not feel that much as i feel right now. -- The art of tango requires 2 to dance, the building of a house requires much trials and patience. If there was a blueprint, it would hv been much easier but most times, i'm not sure if easy is not the best way in achieving wat's best & precious for 2. The essense of union lies not in what you receive but what you can give, and what you can give that is appropriate and needed. Giving in itself holds no meaning if it doesn't mean anything to the receiver or if it's not wat the receiver value. We meet and cross the paths of thousands everyday. What makes a stranger become a friend, or a companion another day, is the unexplainable feeling, that silly thing, not forgetting the misery & hurt and everythin else that adds together, the irony of your choice that you wanna hang on to someone, even if it seems so wrong, you know you just want to do the right thing that sings the tune to your heart and not what you see that is crossed out on the chart.
Troubled waters doesn't take me away. Beating waves tells me i need to be stronger and be calm, remain focused... becoz soon, i'll be afloat again.
I look forward to being back to the kitchen soon and redirect my energy and rediscover the passion i once had. Food. Bake. Love.
