Operasi ini berjalan dengan jayanya! Alhamdulillah! The items were grabbed as early as I was transporting them at the elevator. The cakes went fast, the cookies were a bit slow. My excitement rose upon seing the good response and to increase sales I had to increase the volume. Rushed back after class and baked some more but with my period cramps, I could only do so much. The next morning I was surprised to see some who bought my cakes the day before returning for moreeeeeee. Mostly were my students who claimed that they had finished the cake even before they could surrender them to their parents as buah tangan. My Pak Arabs wiped all my wares in a blink of an eye. They loved the fruit cakes and the chocolate cakes, not much of a cookie monster. As a matter of fact, they weren't enough to cater to all of them. Thanks guys!
My nawaitu has been rewarded handsomely by the Al Mighty, alhamdulillah. The thought of contributing some to the needy has probably clenched the whole affair. All proceeds went to the deserving owners. The last week of Ramadhan didn't grant me the opportunity to stay up awaiting for lailatul Qadar deep in my solat, but instead I was deep in cookie dough and cake batter in the name of a good cause. Hopefully it is accepted as a form of ibadah for me insyallah.
And that's a good feeling.
