The Pastry Arts Academy - part 1

I'm writing this as a 'coretan perjalanan'  journey of my current goal to became one of the greatest pastry chef in the world. I've been enrolling with this course in pastry Arts since 3 Dec 2012.. it's has already been 3 month and I just finished my final assesment last Friday before continuing to the next level..

along this 3 month, last week is the climax - round 1 for us.. a test for all aspect, my family life, my study and rizqcakes. last week was my final assesment, and starting sunday, Syahmi been warded due to high and prolongue fever and coughing.. and the confirmed orders was quite a challenge. it's quite a test for us the whole family actually, especially to my wife Ila and me. it's a challenge that we have to face.. it's a stressfull week and alhamdulillah, we managed to survive it. and, Syahmi is now healthy and fine..

It has been a great 3 months as I've learnt a lot of new things, at least for me.. basic things in pastry and bakery. here, the chefs are very experienced and really good in their work. I've been learning with chef G, chef Chong, chef Azura and chef niklesh..  the other two chef, i didn't get the chance to learn with them  yet.. hopefully in the next 3 months maybe.. hopefully.

most of my classmate aiming to work in the hotel line as chef. but I'm aiming to open up my own business. but first this basic things and experience is needed to make me stronger and capable to face the future. hopefully one day, our dream will come true.. pray for our success please.. TQ..

what did I learn?..well.. here are some of the things I did for the past 3 months.. I've made breads in the first week
me and Syahid a Singaporean guy.. extremely funny.. heheh!

jam-packed week for Rizqcakes

terlebih dahulu nak minta maaf kat pembaca semua sebab lama tak update blog. been busy lately with school and final assesment for my 3 month pastry arts program. tercakap pasal ni, nanti saya update cerita pasal this program ya.. tak cukup dgn tu, Allah nak duga kami dgn anak pulak sakit and kena masuk hospital.. kelam kabut jugak la kami nak settle things up. kalau ada yang tak sempurna atau tak menepati citarasa dalam order baru2 ni, mintak maaflah sangat2 ya.. kalau ada salah dan silap, harap dapat bagitau ya, so kami dapat memperbaiki kesilapan kami. terima kasih..

alhamdulillah, dalam terkejar2 tu dapat jugak siapkan apa2 yang patut for our customer yang dah confirm. yang last minute, terpaksa kami tolak memandangkan kesibukan yg melanda... anyway, here's some of our entry for the past few week. bundle up saja..
