Hello to you who have found the time to drop by and read this space! You know,sitting here and writing this post seem like a breather to me because the past week was kinda busy as I spent it making desserts and entertaining beloved guests in a little dinner party afterwards.I practically baked most days of the week. All for what?, You may ask. Well, this girl, the writer behind Woman Scribbles, just turned 30 a few days ago.
30. Wow! What a milestone isn’t it? I think its a special stage. Being 30 seem the stage where you are neither young nor old. But I think 30 is the age where in I want to develop new habits, believe new perceptions and create more meaningful memories.
Ever since high school, I always write in my journal every time I turn a year older .Thoughts and things. I make resolutions and special notes to myself. So what is different now I turned 30? I think this is the age when you realize that time goes fast like water going down the drain.
So while I wait for luck and wish on stars when I was younger, 30 is the age when I start taking concrete actions to achieve things that I want in life.
These aren’t really big or grand. I mean, when I started baking, I never thought I can make a mere double layered cake. But one thing is for sure now: I surely have never gotten this far if I didn’t decide to hold that whisk and plug that old mixer sitting in our cupboards. I never would have gotten as far as a year and a half in blogging if I did not decide to sit down and write my very first post.
So I like 30. It is the start of another exciting and meaningful stories of my life.
On a lighter note, I busied myself creating desserts. I made a German Chocolate Cake and lots of Peach panacota. I was not able to take food shots of the whole cake and the whole batch of panacota but I did manage to spare a slice and a cup of each, respectively.
I also baked a 12 by 18 inches cake that I brought to work for all November celebrants. Pretty tired I was, but I was surely happy.
I feel like a little girl with lots of new goodies as well: I got a new planner which I have been enduring without for the last year. I got a new food processor and a new mixer! So I think I might be baking lots and lots on my 30th year, don’t you think?
See you all again!
