It was in this beautiful garden that I ended my little escapade. The grand finish to our grand finale. In that sweet mood everyone rejoiced their accomplishments in completing their professional diploma, in a setting I could afford to have only in my dreams. The course had me however, dreaming of only flowers for more than a month. It was roses and orchids one night and lillies and jasmines in another. Pleasant it might seem but tiring would fit the description best as incessant standing and kneading occupied the bulk of my waking hours. It was nevertheless, some of the best times of my life and I have Sugarflours to thank for that.
Some of the flowers made by the students. Which ones are mine? Can you guess?
But the most wonderful experience gained from all of this was the opportunity of meeting new friends like Farida, don't play-play with this lady, Aunty Yon, Master Watie, Chef Liza and Lisa. Time was not only spent kneading and colouring but also engaging ourselves in roars of laughters, exchanging cakerey stories, sharing our qualms and hugging our queen mother (Aunty Yon, who was also one of the participants)whenever we felt the room was too cold for comfort, Love you Aunty! whilst appearing to listen to our dearest most patient Master trainer of course! ha ha ha. Love you too Watie!

It was an escapade I looked forward to every single week, the time I could meet up with other avid cake decorators, the time to unwind, the time to have fun with just us girls. I will surely miss that, not so much of the kneading and wiring though, perhaps more of the beautiful company.
To Watie, thanks so much for the guidance, tips and knowledge shared.
To Aunty Yon, thank you lots for making me warm and for endlessly giving us the much needed encouragements.
To Chef Liza, thanks a bunch for your patience in entertaining our whims and fancies.
To Farida, I dah hantar borang anak angkat dulu kat Aunty Yon k, you tak de chance dah mwahahahahaha....seriously thanks for being there.
The beautiful residence of Aunty Yon and family where we had our grand finale. Their hospitality had us blown away. Thank you ever so much!
