Pink and My Deep Condolensce
My heart broke when yesterday Bee sent me a message that Brianna has gone. She died of cancer. Farewell, dear girl. Rest in Peace.
It's quite sad and quite a gloomy feeling to feel. I've lost my grandmother and my dear friend Ruri, both died of cancer. And I am still haunted by this disease because somehow it is already in my body, genetically coming from my grandmother and my mother (you may read my story here). I am just hoping this won't go to my children. Oh, I do hope so.
In this sequence, I meant to post my entry for Pink Paris Bre(a)st for Pink October hosted by my fellow Kiwi blogger, Bron Marshall before I heard the news about Bri. Therefore, I'd love to give a tribute through this event for Brianna.
I have no trouble in making Paris Brest, as this happened to be KBB first challenge, although we used different recipe. On this event, I made the Paris-Brest using the recipe Bron has provided.
I am also lighting the candles for you who are celebrating Diwali, the festival of lights. I still remember how pretty it was at the Aotea Square when we were all celebrating Diwali. The Malaysian people who had a food stall there sold a beautiful beef satay. Lovely.
