Still here.......

Despite my best intention to update this space, I could barely muster the energy to organize my thoughts or form coherent sentences by the end of each passing days. The past month was hectic to say the least but so fulfilling. My waking hours had been occupied by many exciting opportunities that I don't even know where to begin!

First, there's my internship at the most amazing patisserie in Chicago and another photo shoot for an esteemed organization with a renowned pastry chef. Then there's my final exam in pastry school and the graduation.

Ah, the graduation, the closure of a chapter in my life. I couldn't believe 6 months has just fled in a blink of an eye. It feels like it was only yesterday , when chef Jacquy addressed my class about how fast time will pass when we are in school. How we should relish every seconds when we are there and soak up the informations and techniques like sponges.

Now that school's over, the next stage of my sweet life commences. I am a full time intern at a marvellous french patisserie. The works that the guys at the patisserie do are beautiful and inspiring at the same time. I count myself lucky to have the opportunity to spend some months learning from them. Never in my wildest dream had I imagined the hobby I started as a way to kill time could turn into a career. I still don't have a job offer yet, but I figure I am on the right track. So I am just,going to focus on learning and doing my best during my internship.

Unfortunately, there will not be any recipes on this site for awhile. After all the hard work in a bakery, baking at home seems the least likely way to unwind for me. But I will try to post my random thoughts/ observations while working in the bakery as often as I can....
