Letters to Selma

July 15, 2015

Dear Selma,

I don’t think I’ll ever forget “The Calm and The Hyper Duo”. That was my first time to co-host and I was so thrilled. I was nervous and excited at the same time. I have known you before that, but we were not that close. I kept on stalking your blog – your About page which made me know you better, your recipes. I also checked your comments on some bloggers to see how you leave comments. I can still remember when we made pool party at one of Fiesta Fridays – it was really fun.

You have touched so many lives. You never ran out of encouraging words to keep our spirits high. You are always full of positive energy. You are so generous to share you knowledge and do whatever you can to sort things our for us. You are such an inspiration.

There are so many things about you that I can’t even put them into words. You are a diva – a sparkling diva. And you will remain sparkling in our hearts.

You may not be here with us anymore, but you will always be in our minds and hearts. Your memories will always bring smiles to our faces.

We could not thank you enough for everything that you have shared. You have left something that we could pass on to our children and grandchildren.

The name ‘Selma’ will never be forgotten. You are a legacy.

Missing you terribly,


PS: This is not my last letter to you. xx

Hi, Selma. I know I have not written for too long. This bubbly girl has been very busy. I am sure that if you are here, you’d tell me to take it slow and stay calm. You always tell me that. I wanted to tell you that I made some of your recipes again and they were a hit. The Nutella Espresso Sticky Buns were divine. I went crazy when I made them because I had lots of questions and okay, I can ask you, but you won’t be able to answer me. So I made them thrice. 😀 Two were a no-no and the third one was a huge, huge success! Yay!  I was going to make it again, but my hazelnut expired. Oooppssss!

Ahh, I am starting to cry! I better go now! I will write to you again!

We all miss you!

Hi, Selma. I cannot believe that you’re gone for over a year now. We sure miss you. Since you’ve been gone, the blogging community, most especially Fiesta Friday has never been the same. I always wonder what will you say to every post I (we) have. I miss (we all do) all those comforting comments you have whenever you notice that we are upset with something else or those lovely praises you have for us.

For a long time, I wanted to make your recipes again, but the ‘happy day’ I had was taken away by my boss, thus giving me just one day off. (I am sure you know that already) Gladly, it was given back this month & that only I had the chance to be back to my ‘happy day’ again. I have tried making your Garlicky Tahini Chicken and oh my gosh, it’s magnificent! I finished the whole pan all by myself in just two sitting! I was about to burn it, but I am glad that I didn’t. It was really good!

I have so many questions that I want to ask, but I know I can’t… that’s when me and my BFF Google started hanging out a lot.

I hope I could see you again.. in a dream maybe??
