So my week has officially started back in work! It was lovely to be back. I think if I didn’t work id go craaaaazy! Too much time off and my mind goes a little strange! All the baking ideas I got were bazaar and yet amazing. Yet I didn’t bake the week I was off work, which was unusual because I usually can’t stop when I’m not in work! However my mind was occupied with baking maaaaaad ideas as per usual. My boyfriend has managed to convince me to not bake lately since he wants to loose a little weight (probably due to my valentines day treats!). That won’t stop me from trying out healthy recipes though!
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about where I am in the world and how much I miss the true British bakery’s. That’s really we’re the inspiration came from for baking the Bakewell tarts. I just miss being at home! As much as I love Singapore and it’s AMAZING international bakery’s, truly miss a bit of home!
I wonder if other British expats here in Singapore ever truly miss British baking like I do? I just wish that sometimes it was easier to set up a truly amazing British tea room or mini bakery here in Singapore! To start selling scones, Bakewell tarts, pastries, jam tarts, flapjacks and many more traditional bakes! To give Singapore a true taste of Britain and bring some home back for others is a big dream of mine, I know it would be for my mum too! Yet having no experience in the business doesn’t help but fingers crossed one day in the future me and my mum will get somewhere in the bakery industry. Whether it be in Singapore or the UK we shall do it! Hopefully we can put our modern day healthy (or very unhealthy) twist to our British baking. Dreams aren’t big enough if they aren’t scary… And truthfully opening a bakery would be terrifying! But one day it has to be done by me, or else my dream won’t become a reality! Yet for now, I’ll do what I do best… Get my boyfriend fatter with my baking!
Enjoy the images below of my home when I went back last summer. Was the first time my boyfriend had been to the UK and he loved it & the food ofcourse! When your home sick all you do is looks back at photos so thought I would share them all with you.
Have a great week everyone 🙂
Take me home!
