It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. It’s hard to believe that we’ve gone through 37 days in 2010. My NY’s resolution was to spend a bit more time blogging. However, like most, if not all, my NY resolutions, it didn’t materialize :) .
After 3 months, I’ve finally gotten Li San’s wedding photos of CY. Li San and I have known each other since our first day in Australia. Looking back, I can’t believe how our paths have crossed and what a blessing she’s been in my life. It feels like it was yesterday, Krys, LS and I were walking down the streets of Hobart, shopping and chatting away. I still remember us staring at our shadows on the pavement and laughing about how we looked like Charlie’s Angels. 3 very different girls, from 3 very different family backgrounds, with 3 very different personalities but one common thing – friendship without boundaries and inhibitions. These 2 gals have been nothing but a solid support in my life and that speaks a lot, as people who know me well, will know I’ve always had more close guy friends than I have girlfriends. Seeing how we’ve all grown in the last 7 years brings a huge smile to my face.
It was a pleasure and an honour for me to have had the opportunity to make LS’s wedding cake. LS and Jeeuk are certainly a couple you can say have seen the test of time and distance. I have to say not only was I proven greatly wrong, but was very impressed by how 2 people stayed together for so long despite the distance – with one in Vancouver and the other in Hobart! Thank you so much guys for allowing me the joy of being a part of your journey towards a lifelong of laughter and love.

You are not going to believe this! Pearlyn in her hastiness to upload the photos of the engagement cake accidentally logged herself out of her flickr account! Sighz…I’ve been making sure that I don’t do that as I can’t seem to remember my password! What’s worst is, I’ve forgotten the answer to my secret question as it was AGES ago when I setup my yahoo account! Oh gosh! There goes access to all my previous photos! Oh well, something good has come out of it. Since I’ve had to create a new account, I now have 200 free photo uploads again! :)
Technically I can’t call this my first 3D cake since I’ve made the piano cake early this year but what the heck! It was nonetheless equally, if not more, exciting and challenging! As mentioned in the previous post, when I saw this design lying on the counter of my cake supply shop, it was love at first sight! I knew this is THE cake and it fitted perfectly seeing the theme of the engagement was fairytale! Making it was a whole new issue altogether! Lucky for me, the aunty at the shop is an amazing, friendly woman and agreed to photocopy the cake picture so I could use as a guide and lent me some of her personal collection so I could make the walls and stuff. Everyone who saw the picture of the cake thought there was no way I could reproduce it. Alan definitely had no faith in me and was more than prepared for me to fail! Talk about supporting your partner! :@ But, boy! I do love a good challenge and was pumped up to prove my “critics” wrong!
Well, in the end, I came close to reproducing the original but added my own touch to it. Don’t ask me “Why elephants?!” ! Cos even I do not know the answer to that question. I know it would have been a lot more romantic and prettier if I had made a boy and a girl but call it lazy, call it cute, or me simply being cheeky, but once again, when I saw these elephants while web surfing, I knew they were THE ones! :)
