I was super busy lately. I haven't blogged and it made me sad but I don't regret it.
16 days ago, I finally got the courage, drive and will to bake and sell. I baked my first banana loaf and asked my SiL to sell if for me at her office. It was well-received (devoured?) by her colleagues and gradually, humbly, continually got orders from them. There were negative-bordering-to-discouraging comments made by some people close to me but I did not let it affect me. I am so into this that no one can stop me; not even the Typhoon Glenda. OK, she won as I am using an electric oven so no electricity means no baking.
Anyway, one time, I was chatting with a customer and potential business partner when she suggested that I make graham balls and brownies, too. Those were her favorites, she said. And so I did and she bought a lot! I just have to find and try the best brownie recipe before I share it with my Bebeng's Kitchen audience. Yes, that's the name of my online food shop. If you visit my Pinterest, I have a board there where I pinned all the pegs and visions that I want for my shop. I'm so, so, so happy I finally found what I really want to do.
I was in 5th grade when I knew I wanted to cook after college. I think you already know about that togue story! I asked my mom then on what course to take, if ever. She said, Nutrition and Dietetics or Hotel and Restaurant Management. I did not take those, obviously. I took up Broadcast Communication for the love of performing and gabbing endlessly. Mama did not mention anything about Culinary Arts. I really wished I took that course instead. It's an expensive degree to earn but I can take scholarships. I'm a hardworking student and modesty side, a smart one, too! Sigh. If only I can turn back time. Well, it's not too late yet. Julia Child was 37 when she studied at Le Cordon Bleu! I still have a few years. I still have a lifetime, actually.
Remember my previous post, Wherever? This is my wherever. This was where God took me — to my Bebeng's Kitchen.
