no co-incidence

I was able to meet again an old friend, actually a batchmate during my primary years. I must say life has no co-incidence because everything God does for a purpose. Rose went to our house one night because my brother was looking for an architect to process their building permits and the architect was actually the husband of Rose. We talked about our lives and i mentioned to her that I just resigned from my previous job and doing home bakeshop as a sideline. One night, she texted me and ordered 1box of assorted brownies and food for the gods. I had it delivered to her house which is just near our place. The following week she ordered again, this time 12boxes. At first i get overwhelmed, since this is the first time i had order in bulk, but said to myself i can do it. I rushed to Quiapo and bought some of the ingredients. I only have 1 day to finished the baking, but before anything else i need to clean up first and prepare all the tools as well as the machines that i'll be needing. While i was baking, i had a hard time figuring out the exact measurement of all the ingredients that is needed, hirap pala talaga, it takes patience and perseverance. Everything should be organized, considering that my kitchen is so small and my oven can only accomodate 2trays at a time. Well finally i'm done, i started at 11:30am and finished it at around 8pm with so many distractions from my son who's reviewing for his periodical exam. The following morning, i did the packing and finished it before Rose arrived and picked it up.

The income is not that big but it's worth all the hard work especially if you know people are satisfied with your products and keep on coming back.
