Last night I had a dinner with my beautiful gals again and it was held in Kampar Club Restaurant along Gopeng Road. It is the first time for me and I am amazed by the different restaurants inside the compound. It was raining by the time I reached and I did not manage to capture some pictures of the exterior. Anyway, it was a great gathering once again, this time, our special ex-schoolmate is Susan Gill from Melbourne. I did not have any vague idea how she looked like and even when she appeared before us, I still could not recall at all... (Gosh! I really have a very poor memory indeed!)
Susan Gill has another reason to come by to Ipoh for another reason besides meeting us ladies last night. She is here to promote and create awareness of those who suffer from Depression and I am touched by her anticipation and enthusiasm in this project. Below are the details on the awareness program by the Ipoh Depressed Cake Shop.
We have the date and venue for The Ipoh Depressed Cake Shop 2014.

"By having grey cakes we're challenging the
expected and getting people to challenge the labels they put on those
who suffer with a mental illness"
--Emma Thomas aka Miss Cakehead of The Depressed Cake Shop.
By the way, I am told that they are still looking for "Cake Bakers"... meaning if you have a passion for baking cakes and would like to donate your cakes for this cause, please do not hesitate to share your goodness in this Project mentioned above. They are really in need of Cake Donations.....
