NOT a food blog
Until last week, I had only tried cupcakes and the regular fare at Delectable by Su, and so I was pretty pleased when my Shu Uemura Birthday Party ended with a sweet bang. The birthday cake was a rustic looking sandwich with oodles of cream, chocolate ganache and strawberries, rich and absolutely sinful. Su takes baking and decorating very seriously as can be seen from her prettily decorated cakes.
Thank you, Shu Uemura, for throwing me such an amazing birthday party. I am in love with the Autumn/Winter 2010 makeup palette filled with all my favourite colours (purple being one of them), now in my makeup pouch together with my Shu Uemura makeup brushes which I bought last year and can’t do without. Seriously, those brushes are so soft and impart colour on the face so well that I can’t imagine how I survived without them. And the lashes! Such a pain to put them on, but they’re lovely. I have several sets of Shu Uemura lashes which I stare at regularly but rarely put on because I’m useless (yes, I’m better at catching peanuts with chopsticks than applying fake eyelashes), so I’m glad we had a chance to learn how to put them on. The final collage shows me and my friends with our falseys on, while the earlier collages show the torture tools employed.
And after all that, we supped at Poco Homemade with simple bowls of noodles and rice.
Boys weren’t allowed at my Shu Uemura party. But they crashed it anyway.
Food, for me, is a means to an end and not an end in itself.
Food, for me, represents the love of family, the fellowship of friends, and the community and communality it brings.
