Baker

I am a baker today. And I love it. I threw an ad in for Easter French Macs the other day. I had to close it down within 2 hours instead of waiting until 7 pm like the initial ad said. The orders came in very quick. And a few Baby Shower Macaron centrepieces!!! I’ve been working on ‘demos’ and the pictures so far look promising. Although I must work quick. Then on to the next project. So excuse the imperfections in the pics below.

Yes I am enjoying a moment of feeling smart and proud.

Do I need to remind myself of ‘all’ my imperfections to feed my fascination with being a realist?! Perhaps.

I do make mistakes. The biggest one, I believe, is still getting shocked over others feeling threatened when I succeed! Yes there’s sabotage around etc etc; which I have come to realize, it will always be there. But I needn’t be shocked and sad inside when it happens. I need to work on that. And yes this may mean becoming less trusting and more…aware?! Or cynical?! It is a bit sad when one stops to think about it. But the key, is to use it to grow and learn. Reading about it, digging deep into the right and wrong ways of reacting.

I would like to start smiling when I feel I am being sabotaged. I do. Not in a ‘challenging’ way! Not at all! Rather in a calm peaceful way. I am not going to pretend I am interested in the whys and the reasons. I am not. All I want, is to ‘accept’ it and move on. No more lingering. No more …shock. It’s counter productive and fruitless. It gets you nowhere.

This is my next goal after this wave of busyness reaches shore.

My life goes from really quite, to crazy busy. I don’t really mind. But when I stop to think about it, I realize I do wear so many hats, yet I do focus on task when I’m working. There’s no lack of focus. And that’s good, considering it is a bit crazy to do all this stuff.

Corporate Designer, every now and then.

Coffee Entrepreneur, everyday.

Artist, when I find the time and I need the world to just quiet down.

Ponderer of why this world makes absolutely no sense to me, every single second.

But today, I am a French Macaron baker.

I will be spending another day baking Easter orders. My apron is on. My background French Café music is my only companion. And I’ll be busy but happy.

I used to work as a graphic designer, until one day I was tragically and blissfully hit by two colliding meteors! One caused my falling in love with the world of coffee! And the other resulted in me falling out of love with the not so wonderful and nearly suffocating office culture! I left the glamour of the design world, and opened up my little café! Those were the best years of my life! I say ‘were’, because (wait! May be another time! But please do ask me if you ‘must’ know and can’t sleep tonight unless I tell you!) For the past three years, I have been living in a pyramid shape house in a middle of a green forest in the summer; a green forest buried underneath lots - I mean LOTS - of snow in the winter. I used to ‘think I still do ;)’ love the city! With its buzzing energy! I love to travel and seeing different food and coffee scenes...preferably alone! visiting ‘quirky and unusual’ places! I do not love visiting museums, hugely commercialized areas, malls and landmarks! I love old and full of heritage ‘anything’! I also love, to sit in a busy coffeeshop ‘reading quietly’ and not talking! Talking exhausts me most of the time! Watching the world unfold.. and thinking ...never does!

    1. I’ve honestly learnt so much in the past short little while about people and how they operate! And the result?! I am a loner and will always ‘choose’ to be one hahaha. I know a lot of people! But the second I trust to a point of letting them get close, I see how I am not one built for that. My sister is cool. My far away best friend is cool. That’s abt it 🙃…and that’s …ok 🙂

      1. I am happy :). I refuse to be sad. I don’t believe in it. I have sad ‘moments’, but I’m ready to laugh through the tears any chance I get! Life is way too short to be unhappy :). Ok now I’m preaching.

  1. beautiful displays of your hard work and talent. I am confused with people who have malicious envy, I do envy your talent but at the same time am so appreciative of your skill and patience to create. Shrug them off, and enjoy your lovely creations, they are a work of love and art. A blessed Easter my sweet friend!
