Jules' Quote Picks

Cynthia Kersey has been writing about Unstoppable People for over a decade and found that living an unstoppable life always involves giving. People who give and are involved in a purpose that is greater than themselves are the happiest people and live the richest and most meaningful lives imaginable...

Gedix Gedix! Bling Bling!

The darling Miss Gedix finally transformed herself to "Mrs" Gedix recently. Well, I'm sure she's still the happy, bubbly, ever so cute girl she used to be, only now she is officially someone's wife. And I'm also very sure that she is gedix-ing to a slightly different beat now, one that befits a more grounded, more settled yet no less exciting, no less adventurous and definitely no less vivacious life as a happily married woman.

Congrats A & K! :)
She wanted 4 tiers, pinkish and BLING with fireworks...
...the base is plain butter cake with vanilla cream frosting, then came JulesFudgyliciousness Brownies with vanilla cream frosting too, and the 2 top tiers were strawberry butter cake with strawberry cream frosting...

...the corsages...

...Their official wedding backdrop, brilliantly created by Tangerine...


As with any weddings that I have a little bit of hand in, I remind the bride and groom that what's most important is the marriage, coz the wedding is more for the parents, family and friends, to rejoice and make merry. So when they tell me they're nervous and they desperately hope the event will go well and smoothly, my 2 cents would be that they need not worry so much, they need to just feel happy and blessed that they're starting an exciting new life with their soulmate, that their guests are praying and wishing only the best for them, that it's okay if the dessert runs out towards the end of the wedding coz most often we Malaysians always proceed to Mamak or Starbucks for post khenduri teh tarik/coffee, and that if something really does go wrong it isn't really that bad after all if they still end up getting safely and officially married, and that they can always scream at the event managers afterwards!

If you really look at it, nothing actually really goes wrong on such happy and blessed occasions. Perhaps there are discrepancies between our expectations and what actually materialises, and perhaps the Divine power poses some pre-happily-ever-after tests/trivia when the darling little nephew accidentally spills Ribena all over the bride's dress! But most of the time these things always work out for the best, as true as our faith and intentions are in the marriage itself, insyaAllah...

On the brownie front, it had been a while since I made my FudgyTin with BrownieBites, so it was indeed a pleasure to create one for Diana, especially for Him...


I quote Tun M from his "A Doctor In The House" ~ "To be happy, one must learn to make compromises with grace".

We do not live alone in this world. I want my house to be neat and tidy all day and all year round, but my boys feel that it's no fun without mess; so I give them their own space to mess up upstairs, and I turn a blind eye when I pass that way. I ask darling husband WHY oh WHY can't he not dump his t-shirt everywhere around the house? Then he goes and does all the dishes in the kitchen and gives me Tun M's autograph for our anniversary. I used to go OCD when it came to punctuality, but my 4 B+ves (I'm O +ve) would look at me with the expression, "Why is mommy freaking out?" So now I tell people, "If we're late don't wait for us, just carry on first." When I scratch and knock my head trying to figure out how to ever live completely debt free, or why aren't we bestowed with great richness so we would never have to worry about money ever again? Then darling husband presents me with free admission to Il Volo's showcase with an up close and personal meet and greet, and my 3 goons hug and kiss me goodnight and tell me sweet dreams, I love you.

How? Not possible not to be happy, right? :)

hahaha! wiz, my 4 tier cannot even come close to ur single tier pun la! that being said, i do my best for all my clients even though it means i have to go thru a few rounds of trial n error! the cake ni tak sampai pun 2ft high, tapi sgt berat, abt 5kg kot. i get my inspiration from u wiz, u once told me, "u can do it jules!", thank you... i try my best, sometimes jadi ok, sometimes lebih byk cabarannye, eg fondant terkeras, cream frosting terlembik, tier jadi mcm leaning tower, hehe, but i just carry on doing my best...

Wiz said...

trust me, I yang selalu buat pun have to go thru al those terlembik and terkeras. Nothing is perfect but how we cover up to make it perfect is the best part kekekeke.

Good to know that you are challenging yourself accepting more big orders such as this.:o)
