Charity Drive for Johor flood victims - update

I was sent the following e-mail...

"We are please to report that the recent “Buy A Cake” charity drive was a success. With your efforts and help, we raised RM 881.00 just by the sale of the cakes and donations.

Management has agreed that the company will match that amount, and to top up (RM 1,119.00) so that Axon Malaysia’s total charity contribution equals RM 2,000.00

We will be donating the money to the Malaysian Medical Relief Society (MERCY Malaysia) – towards their Johor Flood Appeal.

Again, thanks to everyone who participated and a special note of thanks goes to the cake supplier (D’Cup Cakes, Cookies & more) for their sponsorship of 40 boxes of cakes to the charity drive. If you’d like to order from them - contact Ivy at 016-277**** or visit

Thanks again to everyone! And especially to Douglas for initiating and contributing significantly to the charity drive."

I'm happy I did my bit although I was hoping to target 200 boxes. I suppose a total of 130 boxes for 2 days' work isn't all that bad after all. It was quite a bit of work for one person to handle and at the same time ensuring nothing but freshness to every single piece.

A dedication

Although it was ordered by someone else, I'd like to dedicate this Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake to James from Michigan. Don't drool on that keyboard now...!

This is what he said... "I was just checking out your blog again the other day here at work. That Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake!! I can't get it out of my MIND!!! It looks SOOOOO good."
