i'm leaving on a jet plane...

ok my fellow cupcakers, great bakers and master creators...it seems i have been keeping a secret from you all and that big news is that by the time you read this post i will have left the gloomy shores of Ireland for the forseeable future. yes that's right! i have accepted a job at an amazing school called Green School in Bali, Indonesia. i am spending 3 days in the Lion City that is Singapore to pick up my employment visa for Indonesia and i will arrive in Bali on the 26th july. so i'm all packed up and ready to go.
naturally there will be some settling in and adjusting to new life, it's been 10 years since i last lived in Bali and lots of things have changed, so until i can get my spatula and whisk out again and get baking (there might even be the opportunity for me to sell some cupcakes while i'm there - a good friend owns a cafe in Bali - but more about that later) i will still try and post about visits to restaurants and food in general in Bali. and hopefully it won't be long before i'm back in the kitchen and baking up a storm.
meanwhile, if you want to see what i'm up to in Bali then you gotta come over and check out my blog charting my adventures there ~always look on the Bali side of life~ and learn a little bit more about the Beautiful And Lovely Island that is Bali.
so please forgive the hiatus in cupcakes for now, but know that my itchy fingers will be just dying to experiment with all those wonderful asian fruits, spices and herbs and i promise i will not let you all down. it will be worth the wait!

I knew you were leaving, but I didn't know how that would affect your baking. Wow! I will just have to put the Bali Side of Life in my reader now.

I hope your flight was good, safe, and fairly drama-free.

I can't wait to see pictures from your adventures! Baking or no!

Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.
I can't wait to see your adventures in the kitchen and out of it too, your blogg-friend will always be there for you.
Now you will have coconut trees like me, but I feel kind of sad because you are leaving Ireland.
I wish all the best things for you

How exciting for you! Congratulations :) Bali is such a gorgeous place to live. And I'm sure your love of cupcakes will mean that it's not long before you start baking more of them.
