Hi guys. Well here is our attempt at some journalism. It has been running in my mind as to whether or not I should start a blog. To start is one thing, but to maintain requires a lot of effort and dedication. Nevertheless, here we are starting our first blog. The main reason for me starting this blog is to share certain things that perhaps goes unnoticed when what we usually see is the end product, which are the bakes.
As the title implies, we meet here at this blog after about a year when I started taking baking seriously. I am a nurse by profession. Graduated from Nanyang Polytechnic with a Diploma in Nursing. Why do I start baking? Well circumstances lead me to starting it but that is a story for another day. I am married and have a son who is 2 years old at the time of this post.
(Here they are..)
Fast forward to the present, we were excited to launch our very own website recently. It was hectic as we were concurrently preparing our Hari Raya Haji Promotion 2016 as well. To go together with it, we had our normal orders that came in as well. Thus, a lot of time went into planning and delegating the work around our ever reliable team members.
Speaking of which, I am the Head Chef. Boss in the kitchen preparing all the bakes and what not. The boss who runs all the business elements to Bakes by NY is my husband. He deals with stuffs like advertising, web designing, sourcing for baking materials, managing and acquiring events, etc. To keep it short, he deals with all things outside the kitchen. My sister Nabilah and cousin, Syahila are my abled hands in the kitchen. We do have ad hoc help from my sister in law, Nurazlin and cousins like Syuhadah.
Back to business. For the past few months, our orders for pods has been over the roof. It has been much more then we had projected and it encouraged us further to come up with different variations of pods, the latest being the 'Strawberry Nutella Pods' and 'Upsized Pods'. There are other variations coming soon so do stay tuned. Amidst all of it, there was an order that took our eyes off the pods for a while and it was a request for an 'Excavator Cake'. Well we had a lot of joy baking this one and the end result was something that warms our heart.
It is moments like this that encourage us to march on and relentlessly pursue our goals when we first started to bake. I am so blessed to be able to play a small role in the joy and happiness of others and hope that I can continue to do so.
Looking forward, there are a number of projects that we will be undertaking in the coming future. We do hope for your continuous support and trust that you have placed in us.
Well here is our first post. Nice meeting and knowing new people after embarking on this adventure. We are here to stay and we will dedicate every inch of our strength to improve ourselves and continue to serve the best to our customers.
Till the next blog, happy munching.....
