The Baker's in the Papers?
And so, I appeared in the newspapers yesterday.
Was I pleased? Haha, more like very amused and shocked at the size of my photo!
Those of you who read the article would very well know what I mean. And for posterity, I posed with 'myself'. Yes, it seems rather shameless! But allow me to continue to amuse others just for laughs, if not, for fun:
Hahahaa.... I think my brownies was the main attraction though. I baked them especially for the shoot. And it certain was heavy balancing my laptop (with that plate of brownies) on my right palm. Coincidentally, the photographer was my former coursemate back in my mass comm days at NP so it wasn't that much of a hassle or rather, it just made things easier. Funny how Singapore's so small ya?
So anyway, I've been receiving text messages from friends who saw me in the papers and it's been interesting. Even my former lecturer texted me to say he saw me. So now you know that the whole of Singapore actually reads the papers. Ha!
But of course, this isn't that much big a deal. Given a choice, I'd rather, in this lifetime, be in the papers because of something good or inspirational that I did, amongst all else. Perhaps, through my love for writing, baking and cooking, I can touch the hearts of others and maybe inspire more people in more ways than one.
You can say that I have big dreams. But mine are not worldly - I seek not for fame and fortune, but just for the ability to change the world in whatever small way I can, to put smiles on the faces of others, to spread the love that I have. It's amazing how a small little foodblog that I started about a year ago can do so much. Through this wee site, I have made friends from around the world, locally, and got so many valuable experiences. And now, I'm in the newspapers. Who knows what's next?
Only God knows.
