I dream... therefore I will
Had dinner with a galfren on thursday night @ the Greenhouse Cafe (not sure if I got the name right). It's actually a florist, with a cafe serving up unique flower teas... and great dinner sets... all at affordable prices. The cafe accommodates only a few tables... which gives me a feeling that the owner set up this shop...purely to share her/his love for flowers.... and to share their own recipes with people who have the time to spend at their cafe.
I love the greenhouse cafe. I remember... as a girl... other than badly wanting to be a crew... I had the dream of being an owner of a flower shop. Providing unique creations for numerous weddings... selling affordable flowers to those who have the same liking for flowers as me. I enjoy receiving flowers, of course would love to see people buying them to bring a smile of their loved ones.
I also remember i have another dream. When I was in perth... i told myself... one day I will run and bake my own croissants, come up with my own pastry creations, and sell them @ my very own al fresco cafe.
Today... I dream of baking cakes... making desserts... and serving them to people who appreciates sweets like I do, at the same time.... have a gift shop side by side.... being the go to for people who needs fresh ideas for a gift for someone.... flowers... cakes... cookies....anything!
If i realised my dream of being a crew... i would have been able to save up enuff for the dream of having my shop. Well... but that shud not be a hindrance for me to live the way I want. If I can dream... i will have what I want. It is only a matter of time.
For that matter.... I made yummy durian sticky rice last week... and this weekend... here's my own creation.... Cranberry and Mango cake. :). I took a recipe I had for making a butter cake... added a dash of lemon...chopped cranberries & dried mangoes... While I feel that texture can still be improved.... taste wise... it's yummy!
