My Memory Bank

You will be wondering about the above title. Its' nothing to do with any of my new creation of cakes, but indirectly related to my cake I made several years ago. Bear with it goes....

About a week ago I received an e-mail from my ex-staff, with attachment of 2 photos. (let say I call her Ms X, since she’s used to report to me, so her conversation with me sound rather formal) . She wrote to me whether is there anything peculiar about the photos?

I answered "Of course, my cake was in the picture, and the woman in the photo was my client and this cake I made several years ago for her son’s birthday".

The next day, she gave me a call. This was how the conversation sounds like:-

Me: Hello, how are you. Anyway thanks for the photos. Where do you get these photos?

Ms X : Hai Cik Habsah, I’m fine, I got it when I browsed through the internet. Actually I came across these photos by accident. You know, I like to browse through the local artist and I found these photos in one of the local entertainment website.

Me: Really!!, so I gather her husband is an artist? An actor perhaps, but I never seen him appear on TV?

Ms X: It’s not the husband but the wife!!!......(she started to sound excited)

Me: The wife?  I never seen her appear on TV before but she introduced herself as Intan Sarafina, a very polite lady and we exchanged ideas  through the phone on how she wanted the cake looks like. During delivery I met the husband, Iskandar, I think......

Ms X: OMG!!!! (she sounds rather surprised and maybe a tinge of annoyance towards me). You don’t know who Intan Sarafina is???

Me: Should I know who she is???. (It’s quite ridiculous to ask her that question, then I started to feel embarrassed of myself for not knowing who she is)

Ms X: She’s a popular singer, but she’s not active anymore.

Me: A popular singer???. Does she had any popular song?? (see, I'm trying hard to show her my enthusiasm......)

Ms X: There’s a few quite popular songs, entitled “Kembali”and “Aduhai Malam”. ( I tried to find a “file” in my memory bank but it does not click at all). I think her songs was uploaded in You Tube several years ago, maybe you try to listen and maybe you can recall these songs. (I can give Ms X an A plus for her up-to-date knowledge on the local entertainment industry, well, different people have different interest)

Me: Ok, I’ll try to find out. Anyway thank you again for the photos.

Ms X: You are welcome......

I went to You Tube and I managed to listen to her songs. Then I started to recall, yeah, these 2 songs used to be very popular.....

Sometime, as you get matured there’s a few information in your, or rather mine "memory bank" just get “deleted”  automatically. However, once my nephew asked me whether I can still recall Quadratic Function.  I was fascinated with  myself,  I could explained to him the mathematical functions of quadratic equations, the quadratic polynomials, what is linear coefficient and something about Newton's Method. Yeezaa...................

This cake was uploaded on my blog on 3 April 2011 - Birthday Cake - Evan Raez

These were the 2 photos Ms X e-mailed to me. I would like to apologize to the original owner of these photos because I uploaded without his/her permission.
