what matters most


salam wrt wbt & hi!

for past the few years, i thought i made myself clear by letting the blog title says it all. and after those times, i realize there's no point in explaining in writing. people will listen what they want to hear, they see what they want it appear to be, and trust only what they believe.

some still say i don't eat. some say i only eat chicken and nothing else. some say i eat too little. and all i can say is there's no truth in it at all, none whatsoever. the ones who supposed to know that better are the ones who made things up. hurtful? yes. betrayed? sure. do i care? i'm just mad.

some asked why don't i work? i thought i was doing it. apparently to them i'm still jobless. hmm. there is a quote, 'being successful means something different to each person'. at least i think i did something.

there is a saying that says, 'to know someone, you have to live with them, travel with them'. but if you have done both but you still spreading lies about them, well what can i say about liars? they can't help it as if lying is their source of living.

this is supposed to be my happy place. i hate telling stuff that makes me sad. but 'it's not always rainbows and butterflies' ey as adam levine sing in his song. there will always be people who will bring you down, make you demotivated, even depressed.

the important thing is i'm writing as what it is, i'm being true to myself, and if people can't accept that, well that's just too bad. if i'm not good enough for them, perhaps i won't be a matter of concern to them. right? peace and out.

salam wrt wbt & hi!

i used to think i have OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) but my sister said it is OCPD (obsessive compulsive personality disorder). so what is it actually?

OCD is an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear, or worry; by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety; or by a combination of such obsessions and compulsion. (wikipedia)

OCPD is a personality disorder characterized by a pervasive pattern of preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, mental and interpersonal control at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency. (wikipedia)

wondering why i'm telling you this? haha. well, as most of you might already know, i'm having trouble with the calculation and pricing. as an OCPD person, it's not easy for me to do it as in make everything standardized. because i calculate everything and i mean EVERYTHING everytime and i do mean EVERYTIME there's an order.

i wrote about this before in the previous entry. you might want to read these :

during a recent event, i was actually stressed with the situation which is contrast with what i am and i almost cried about it. it happened a few times actually. i thought my condition is understandable (is this a word?) but apparently it is not. it is a disease but some just think i'm just being silly and stubborn. =(

i'm trying so hard to make it fair for everyone that's why it is seriously never easy for me to just do it as they say. this is how i work. i never meant to make it hard for anyone. even after 500 orders, there is still no standard price. that's why there's always +/- in the pricing.

i'm selling from home so i don't see why it is a problem. i'm not even putting a price tag on anything. yes, i know it's an extra work for me and some may think it is a waste of time. but it actually helps me to remember every price of the ingredients i bought while calculating. it also helps in terms of comparing it when i buy those stuffs in other grocery store.

so until i have my own bakery, or find someone who can do the maths for me, haha, i think i'll stick to this so called crazy method. haha. i hope i won't write about this anymore. a very stressful topic for me. huhu. 4 entries is enough i think. heh.

mass production vs customization


salam wrt wbt & hi all!

i was assembling the shelf for the baking stuff until i hurt my fingers putting those screws in. hahah. maybe i need help. heheh. so i'm taking a break to let them rest. well, sort of. hihih.

talking about help, people have been asking me why i haven't got any staff already? why i don't outsource some job? why i'm not opening a cafe? the truth is, as much as i need and want it, it ain't easy to find the one that suits my style.

they say just find some temporary ones. to let go something very valuable to me to just anyone is so not my thing. i want someone who is passionate as i am, have the same interest, and share the same view about food and cooking. hard isn't it?

i'm not looking for the people who wants to make big money or work just for the salary. it is the opposite of why i started this business. i want people who love what they do and do what they love.

although the orders keep coming, some of them i had to decline. sometimes because of the overlapping dates, too much i can't handle it alone, or there's no place to store so many. i don't want pressure to turn into hate. i do it with pleasure and much love. hee.

at times i do feel bored and stressed doing the same thing over and over again. that's why i don't like to cook the same recipe. i like to try new ones. unless it is too tasty or i haven't had it in a long time. eheh. i prefer to bake smaller quantities than larger amount to keep them fresh.

and as for now, i'm doing it in my own pace. not wanting to compete with anyone. until i find a partner or a helper and the right person, i guess i'm okay with the way it is. not everything of course. still improving here and there. heh.
