Back again..

Hi there,
I’m back again, ok its been long time I didn’t online here since I’m busy experimenting a new foods and plaining to doing a business bakery. I am not announced about my closing boutique. In this year on January, I closed my online boutique for some reasons. I like fashion but when joining a business fashion, its not easy like I think before. Less customer, poor in promoting and not reached a target or audience is a reason on why I closed my online boutique.

But it doesn’t matter for me, I will never give up. I love cooking & baking. And this is my hobby since in a childhood. I love experimenting a new foods from a recipes that I take from a tv shows, magazine, internet, my mum, friends & family and more. I always learn a tips on baking and cooking on internet and tv shows, sometimes from my hubby and my mum too. My hubby loves cooking too but he is more to a side dish. He doesn’t like baking but thank God that he is very understanding man, even he didn’t like baking, he always support me in what I’m interested. Thanks hubby. I do not like to cook dishes but I try to learn more recipes about dishes if there is an appropriate time to me. I prefer to cakes and desserts. I love baking cakes all the time. And now I try to make my own online bakery and selling my cakes around my neighborhoods.

My fanpage is still The Zara Shopz but I have deleted all my clothing albums and replace it with my cakes pictures. Don’t forget to visit my fanpage there. Hehehe. Ok the reminder is remind me for my favourite tv show, French Food At Home. I admired Laura Calder. She’s beautiful, gorgeous chef in the planet with a delicious foods and recipes that makes me hungry all the time. I like Anna Olson’s too, her recipes is so easy to follow and more delicious recipes on her shows. I can’t wait to watching her premmiere Bake with Anna Olson at Asian Food Channel on this Feb 12, next week after Chinese New Year celebration. Its the time now. See you all soon for more updates. Good night.
