A Petite lady, Colorful cupcakes and Joy!!!...

So what is this all about you may ask!!. What does Joy has to do with a petite lady and the colorful cupcakes. First let me clarify as to the meaning of Joy that I pick up from a dictionary "emotion of great happiness". It has to do with Happiness which is so important to all of us. Well, it is like this. It may sound to be a rather complicated story but yet it is not. It is a story that has to do with the ingredients of creating Happiness. It is just one of those happening that happen in life. Real life is like that. It is a story yet to be told. So this is one of the story that unfold as its goes.

So how do I start this story that has yet to get an ending, I believe all writers write as its goes along with their thinking process. You continue to write as the ideas flows on, like water flowing on a clear mountain stream. It flows and at time when it get into an obstacle it divert itself but yet it flows. Ideas in writing is just like that. This story start with the talk of a birthday party of our granddaughter Adilah. She is having a party to celebrate her sixteen birthday over the weekend. To kids at this age birthday is real special, so I decided to give a sort of a helping hand to her party. After discussing with here mom, I decided to order some cupcakes from a fellow blogger. This is the first time that I had ever ordered anythings through the Internet. After looking at her blog with Adilah, the birthday girl, without much ado, I placed an order.

So on last Friday evening a petite lady with her spouse came to the house to deliver the cakes. We have not met except in cybersphere. Like me she is a blogger. In a way we are just cyberpal until this evening when we met in the real world. She delivered the cakes that I ordered and met my spouse, the Nenek. In just a breeze they left. My spouse and me then sat to look at the cakes she just brought and admired at the works of art.

Immediately after they left we took the cakes to our daughter's house nearby. On seening the cakes everyone including the tiny tot were exited with the jewels of a cakes. In an instance they fell in love with the cupcakes that comes in three containers. So without much ado we sat to sample the cakes for as we often knows that looks could be deceiving. We soon found out that not only that it look great, it taste great as well. Everyone especially Adilah were delighted with these special cakes for her birthday over the weekend. In that instance happiness and joys brighten the home. It was like love just exploded. I am indeed happy to have ordered this cakes for the special day of our granddaughter.

And on the day of the birthday party these colorful cupcakes stole the show. Everyone were full of praises of the quality of the cakes and the taste as well. You know how kids are nowadays, they are rather sophisticated on their taste, their likes and dislike. And when they say the it is great then it must be great. I agreed. So my first order through the Internet did come out well indeed. Thanks to Wiz for a job well done. The cupcakes was a mean to an end 'Happiness'. That my friends is the end of the story. Have a nice day.[click to enlarge images]

That is the sweetest feedback anyone could have ever written about my bakes. Thank you Pak Idrus! It was indeed a pleasure being part of the celebration. Sometimes I do feel like Santa Claus bringing little presents in a form of colourful edible delights to kids. I love doing what I do, makes me happy to see kids happy. Thanks a zillion for the order and for the write up.

Say hi to the squirrel for me. Maybe one day it would feed from your hand.

wiz, thanks for the visit and the kind works.

I am indeed glad that you are extremely happy with this episode of the 'cupcakes'. You and me are parts of this story of Happiness and in a small way we played our role in the greater scheme of things. Making everyone happy.

As for me the Grandpa it is what I often says 'menompang kasih' sort of getting a ride on the love boat with the kids.

Grandkids are the love of our lives as grandparents and whatever little things that we could do in return we are indeed happy to chip in.

Seeing the smiles and the twinkles in the eyes of those grands made our lives so wonderful. That's whats great about been in the golden age surrounded with love one.

Have a nice day and take care.

Pak Idrus,

I once ordered cupcakes, also from internet (from another blogger), for my father-in-law's birthday. It was a small dinner celebration of 6 adults and 3 kids. Everybody loved the cuppies... surprisingly the adults are more enthusiastic about them compared to the kids.

I guess sweet treats like the cupcakes, especially the beautifully decorated ones, helps in bringing joy and happiness.

To Wiz,
It must be nice to be able to bring joy and smile to people. Now I know who to contact when I'm in need of those cuppies.

Pak Idrus said...

Nana, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on this posting. Yes, little things like the cupcakes do made the differences. It is the mean to an end. In the journey of life you take chances and I took a chance. And Wiz's cupcakes turn out to be a good decision, thus it delivered more love then I could ask for.

When things are done with love, it would sure get love in return. I strongly believe that Wiz did the cake with an extra ingredient and that is Love.

As for the adult reactions, It is often like that especially so for folks in their golden age.

Have a nice day and take care.
