2016 (Looking Back in Anger)

Tajuk entry tak ada kena mengena dengan ini cerita.  
Haha, just thought about the Chinese drama that was very popular when I was still in secondary school. Time to reminisce some memories, especially when we are embarking to another new year.

Lots going on throughout last year, both good and bad.  Am not here to rumble and mumble about the bad one,  as I don’t wish to dwell in any of it.  Let it be my life lesson, the ones that will stay in my mind just to ensure that I remember not to step in the same mine twice. Good ones? Lots of it, that makes it impossible to share with you all.  My culinary journey has some new adventures that I embarked on.  That is what I wish to share here, merely as a token of appreciation to those whom I met along this interesting path.

April last year, I enrolled into cake and pastry class that was organised and sponsored by Empower ECER at Mersing (part of the reason why, I stopped my home food delivery business in JB though I have an ample loyal customer and follower)  Some of you might be wondering why the sudden change and why leave my sizeable food delivery business to take part in something that I’ve already done and knew.  As you might be aware, I cook merely base on trial and error and through experience of my family members. There’s no formal training.  Did you know that every time I secure a catering or cooking project my heart kept on racing till the event is over?  It is because I still lack confidence whether I did it right, or whether the customer will love and appreciate my cooking, even at some point when they praise my products, I still have doubts whether it is based on  true fact or just as a token of courtesy. (Yeah! That bad!) At times, if the project was for more than 500 people, I couldn’t sleep for days, just planning and kept on feeling nervous whether I can nail the project.

So, when I joined the class, it helps me gain my confidence, tremendously!  Honestly, most of the recipes that was taught here was the one that I have already tested and made in my kitchen, nothing new.  But the benefit that I got from attending the classes is very useful and invaluable.  I was taught about the tricks and tips of baking, why this is made like this or why it is done like that – the one that only occupies a few percent of my knowledge in baking.  So you see, I am more than happy that my attendance was 100% for the last 25 sessions.  Unbelievable right? Haha, most of my classmate will definitely give me a standing ovation because the average of my school and college attendance was normally, never exceeding 60% a year!  I’m so amazed and pleased with myself.  (Now dancing to Channa Mereya by Arijit Singh)

When attending the class, the officials from Empower-ECER came to know about my cooking and baking experience and approached me if I’m interested to do cooking or baking demos for working adults and school students.  Still lacking in confidence, I hesitated, but they said….’It’s time’. From there, I am making History for myself! After the first demo with the parents of student from Sekolah Menengah Tunku Abdul Rashid in Tenggaroh 5, I got a lot of invitations to teach them a few recipes, using their community centres and their own pocket money.  I made a lot of new friends exploring new districts and their cultures.

Today, I would like to share, photos of my sessions with some teachers, and parents as well as students during the demos.

I would also like to thank the following people and company who have been regulars, using MyKuihStory food and catering service for 2016.  If I missed out… be sure that it is not intentionally.
