I hope this won’t sound cocky or anything. On the other hand actually, it’s because my luck in writing has never been good all of my life, I feel it’s just natural to record the first, and might be the only, paid published writing I finally made. As pathetic as it can be, be it 🙂
Do you know the feeling when you’re suddenly craving for a very good blueberry cheesecake, and right in that moment, your door’s suddenly opened by Seven Grain delivery guy with perfect blueberry cheesecake in his hand specially delivered for you? Surreal, isn’t it?
One day, I was checking my mail, thinking about—well—food. I was thinking how great it would be if I can write about food, just like what I’ve been doing in my blog, and get paid. Being a food writer or sort of. Right in that moment, yes, that moment, an email came from the chief editor of Pastry & Baking Asia Pacific Magazine asking me if I’m interested to write something for the magazine (Thanks, Joe. I owe you one).
Surreal. Just surreal.
So there it went. An article about William Wongso and his Vineth Bakery. It was so fun. Thinking back, I still recall the moment as just surreal as God decided that I might have done a little tiny good thing in the past and deserve a little kick in the a** to get me to work my way toward this direction, or else, He’d give up on me completely.
As for the magazine itself, I loved it. I got 3 editions from my sister-in-law about two years ago and loved them. It has great pictures, unique features, you got to see it for yourself to do the justice (I’m not kissing any ***es here :D).
I hope I can do this more often. But otherwise, I can die a happy man now.
