Baking is my passion!

"Everyone has their passion right? You might be doing engineering, medicine or law but your desire and enthusiasm is actually in doing something else like modelling, singing, dancing, baking, or travelling. For me, my passion has always been in baking. Since young, I've gravitated in baking and I was always the one to persuade my mum to bake cookies for Hari Raya or muffins and cakes whenever we have a family gathering. The funny part was that I’d be the one getting all excited to do the weighing and mixing and my mum would be the one handling the oven.

My passion for baking grew tremendously when I started pursuing my studies in Germany. Even though I’m studying engineering but that didn’t stop me from doing what I'm really passionate about. I began experimenting with a lot of recipes online and also from various recipe books. I would do adjustment here and there to cater to my own taste buds and sometimes to create a whole new recipe. I’ve tried making a number of desserts such as cupcakes, muffins, cheesecakes, pies just to name a few. I bake quite often actually. Whenever I’m stressed out, whenever I’m celebrating something or sometimes just when I feel like eating something sweet. Oh yeah I have a sweet tooth. That’s also one of the main reasons why I’m obsessed with baking.

Baking is actually like magic. You have flour, you add in butter, you mix in sugar and eggs and you don’t know what’s going to happen to them. You add in other ingredients and tadaa they turn into cakes, into cookies, into pies and other wonderful desserts. The excitement of creating something new and the pleasure of sharing it with other people make it such an amazing experience. That just sums up my passion for baking.

Before ending this post, allow me to share a quote from Julia Child “Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.” And that’s exactly what I’m doing. The most important thing is to love what you’re doing and maybe one day you’ll end up pursuing your dream and turning your passion into something wonderful!"

Tschüss und mach's gut!

I tried google back some of my old photos, see if I can find them. I found two and one of them directed me to one of ur entries, that u wrote on "Unorthodox Banana Cake"

I wonder if ur blog masih active and here ur latest entry was on Jan. I only realized when I came back to ur blog that u look similar to Jimmy Shanley (I hope u know him). So I'd like to ask if u ada pertalian darah dgn dia?

Damn, panjang sgt comment nie just to tell u what makes me came back here and only to ask psl Jimmy haha.
