ABOUT...

It is not easy being a mother of three children, a contract graphic designer, and a full time housewife.  Time is never enough when I have to drive the kids in and out from places to places, wake up in the middle of night to finish up my project, and cook decent meals for the family. It is very difficult to make any plan for myself when I am always “on duty.” (Try to have a nice and quiet two hours lunch with friends seem like a luxury.)

Even though I always wish I have 48 hours instead of 24…

…feeling dead tired by 8:30 PM…

…dragging myself up around 4 AM in the morning to start my day…

…going crazy with three kids running around the house…

Plus

…endless household work that need to be done "yesterday"…

Somehow, I always manage to have extra time when it comes to baking.
 
When I am up in the middle of the night beating eggs, whipping creams, or rolling fondant, I feel like time has stopped right there…into eternity.  Only thing that matters to me at those moments is to bring all the creative and abstract design and decoration ideas into live.  Just imagining “WOW” expression on my customer’s face when they open the box, already bring warmth to my heart.

To me, this isn’t just mixing of eggs, flour, and milk.  It is an Art… an Edible Art. 

******************************

要同時當三個孩子的媽、電腦繪圖設計師、和一個全職的家庭主婦,真的不是件容易的事情。時間對我來說似乎永遠都不夠用。 每天的生活都在孩子、工作、和柴米油鹽中渡過。對一個要隨時”待命”的我來說,想要一個屬於自己的時間似乎就成了一種不可能的任務。(和朋友安安靜靜的吃兩個小時的午飯,已經變成了一種奢侈。)

雖然我----

        …一直希望一天是48個小時而不是24個小時在運轉…
       
        …到了晚上八點半就累癱在沙發上…

        …凌晨四點摸黑爬起開始我忙碌的一天…

        …三個孩子不停的吵鬧讓我接近發瘋的邊緣…

以及

        …一大堆”昨天”就應該要做完的家事在等著我…

但是我卻仍然可以在這樣的生活中,找出那多餘的時間玩烘培。

我們家的廚房常常到了半夜就會傳出打蛋的聲音,攪拌器拌奶油的聲音,或是桿翻糖的聲音…這些”音符”彷彿是一種魔力,讓周圍的時空完全停擺。那一瞬間對我來說最重要的事情就是把我腦中所有的創意變成實物。只要一想到客人打開盒子那驚訝的神情,就讓我的心整個都暖和了起來。

對我來說這不只是把蛋,麵粉,和牛奶混合那麼簡單。我把它們都當藝術品在創作...一個可以用味蕾去感覺的創作喔!
