ANNOUNCING ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL CAKE EVENT


I am having some problem editing my posts. Recently i tried to update few already published posts(just happened to change the style ,add a new pic to those old post) .To be more specific the posts are: Fruit Custard, Veg Noodles. After editing I re-published them. When i happened to open my blog I could see new comments on these posts waiting for my approval. When i just looked around, all I could see is that the previous c
omments on those posts have been deleted and it automatically updates all your blogroll list with link to these posts rather than my most recent post. his is quite annoying.

Coming to the point, I decided to host an event for a change. This would be my first one. Hope to get it right . The Theme would be : "Anniversary Special--Cake" . This might sound quite funny but the reason to come up with such an event would be my own personal experience. As a daughter, I have never paid much attention to what my mom cooks on their Wedding day or their B'day(Mom's and Dad's). But I was so particular about the menu for my B'day(not even for my Bro's .Anway he has his own priorities). Post-Marriage everything changes. It's no longer about just "You"...It changes to "Us". Your opinion/outlook / liking / priorities everything changes. The change which your parents were asking for always remained a dream to them and I used to be so proud for being just myself. But now, I don't even notice what I have left behind along with my parents...Well, now I become over-ambitious ,When it comes to celebrating special occasions like our Marriage Anniversary or my Hubby's Birthday(forget about mine). I prepare a menu, make a list of the ingredients that goes into it ,go shopping ,cook them for the special day.... I like giving surprises for my hubby !! Everything sounds nice until ,I started realising that ,I always ended up Cooking the same everytime(except for few recipes...). Whats the fun in giving them a surprise, when they already knew whats going to be on the table?...So this is where I landed..Hosting up an event for the So special Ocassion. Lets start this event with something sweet ,moist and perfect "CAKE"for getting started....So lets get busy!!!!
