"When you believe you can- you can!" by MAxwell Maltz

Woodberry known for all those brands from all over the world. I admit that I was addicted to wearng signature clothes when I was in my sixth grade till high school. Hey, peopele change, I just realized that people have different perceptions on choosing whichever makes them happy to simplify it.

I guess ever since I dreamt of being a good pastry chef, I knew that part of it is to invest on tools and equipments. This is where my mom and dad is good at. Thanks Dad for tasting all those bad cookies and bars I made back home. I swear that my dad would always tell me how great were the goods I baked when actually it was totally a mess, too dry, too moist,bitter, overbaked, not presentable.I guess thats why I had confidence in becoming a chef , because my mom and dad believed in me. I have the BEST MOM in the world! A lot of people can attest to that. Thanks Mom for makng good food for us (my sisters Korina and Tina), if not for the Mocha Chiffon Cake, Moist Chocolate Cake, Macapuno Delight( Coconut Tartlets), Beef Stroganoff, Eggplant Spaghetti and a lot more, I would not have had that great motivation that dreaming of becoming a chef is not just an ordinary career but one of the best.
It has been a habit that I visit the kitchen stores atleast here in New York. Sur La Table is one in Manhattan, William-Sonoma, Le Grande Chef, The Pottery Barn. I am starting to collect moulds and pastry cutters, searching for new trends in books because there will be new challenges that I will face for the next years of my life. The real world!
