Tessa tagged me in her Seven Things About Me post. Which means, its my turn to write one. This is the first time I’ve been “blog tagged”, and although I try not to get too personal on my blog too often, I quite like the idea.

So without further ado, here are seven things about me. I’ll keep it short and sweet.

  1. I bake as often as possible. You’ve probably noticed that by now? It’s mostly cupcakes, although I’ve been known to occasionally make big cakes, cookies and desserts too.
  2. My day job is being an engineer. Basically, I sit at my desk all day and write software that makes electronics work. While trying not to think about baking. 🙂
  3. I prefer the white marshmallows to the pink ones.  I know, I know, the matter is still open for debate. Some people think there is no difference in taste. But I KNOW there is. Vanilla is better.
  4. I have read Anna Karenina. I’m not sure why I count this as one of my defining characteristics. But I have read it, and I LOVED it. Maybe War and Peace next holiday.
  5. My favorite city (besides Cape Town) is Istanbul. I went there with one of my closest friends two and a half years ago, and we painted the city red. It is such a magical city – the perfect “East meets West” destination. I am so keen to go back. Which brings me to my next point…
  6. I am grateful for my friends! Enough said. I have some amazing friends.
  7. I try living with eternity in mind. It’s not always easy, but I do try. Money, success, possessions, even baked goods = not eternal. People = eternal. I must remember this.

OK that’s me. Thanks for the tag Tessa. Oh wait I ‘m supposed to tag fifteen more people. I choose Kate, Theresa, Mariah, Nicky, Madre, Emma-Jane, Arian, Amber, Miss Moss, Tunet, Lanalou, Jessica, Rosie, Michness and Talisa. It’s your turn, go for it!
