Homebaked Delight

Fruit cake


No, I wasn't the one  who homebaked these two loaves of yummilicious cakes.  Biu yi ma (mom in-law's cousin sister) was the one behind the scene. My baking skill sucks and the only cake I baked was cheese cake and only cheese cake that I baked but it was like eons ago since I last baked.     I love the cakes to bits, not too sweet nor oily to cater to the older folks, oh did I mention, biu yi ma is in her 80's and still going strong. 

She is one strong and determined woman that I salute and look up to, sort of single handedly raised up her only son who got himself a government scholarship and is now a doctor in his late 50's.  Why sort of, you may ask?  Her husband was not so lucky to have had a secure and well paying job so she took up stenography course and turned herself from a housewife into a fulltime working mother.  I have my full respect for her.

Such women deserve a whole lot of admiration! I hope the son's filial... Very sad to see a mother sacrificing all for the child...but the child has no sense of gratitude whatsoever. So much love and sacrifice and yet something did not turn out right - bringing up children is definitely no easy task.

Don't worry! You're not alone - I can't bake too...even though I keep telling myself that I must try one day!
