I can’t be any more honored to receive the following awards from my fellow bloggers.

I cant thank

Edith from Precious moments,

Small Small Baker

Jasmine from Sweetylicious, and

Rita from rtcrita

enough for presenting  me with the  credits. Thank You so much guys! I am so very very flattered.

Here are the rules to abide in order to accept this award and they are:
1. Post linking back to the person that gave you the award
2. Share 7 random things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered blogs
4. Drop them a note and tell them about it.

The randoms:

1. Although currently residing in Jakarta, Indonesia, I did most of my growing up in sunny Singapore

2. Being mostly educated in Singapore, I am supposedly proficient in both English and Chinese. While i do OK with English (sometimes fumbling with grammar), i am deficient in Chinese. I stammer, stutter and break up in cold sweat whenever the need for me to read, write or speak in the language arises.

3. I am a self/internet taught baker. I have never had professional training in my life. So, I don’t expect any fancy, sophisticated French pastries and desserts posts up in this blog, because frankly, i am clueless about them.

4. I work for a chain of restaurants. While i am sometimes involved in the very pleasant process of creating and tasting new menus, most of my days are spent facing the computer, computing mundane administration stuffs.

5. I force upon share most of what i bake with the good people at work. That way i won’t be left unsupervised with a tray of desserts all by myself. I just dont trust myself that much.

6. I bake and photograph in the mornings, because nothing beats natural light in the A.M. And because then i can immediately pack up and bring my bakes to work. Refer to #5  🙂

7. I am a Mall worshipper. You can probably catch me riding up or down the mall elevators on most days.

1. Beth from Delicious Inspiration

2. Kristina from Paddle Attachment

    congrats on your award! I would never have known that English wasn’t your first language, so I’d say it’s pretty good!

    I don’t trust myself around a huge tray of desserts either. So I understand.

    If you bring those baked goods on your work place then I wish you were my work mate! Also when I first followed youre blog I really thought you were Singaporean as the breads you baked looks so Singaporean.

    Congratulations on your award!

    Lina – your name is Lina! Congratulations on your bloggy awards! I was happily surprised by this post so that I could learn more about your life. I am also so honored to be among your list of newly discovered bloggers. Thank you! It’s an absolute joy reading your posts and learning from your early morning baking experiences. I live in the United States but spent a few months teaching English in Sabah, Malaysia many moons ago. Like you, I adore morning light for photos. Now I wish I had your fresh flowers (and skills) to enhance the scene….
