WHY DATIN SU WAI FUN, WIFE OF DATO STEVE DAY OF VISION FOUR MEDIA GROUP, VISION KL MAGAZINE AND ORGANISING CHAIRMAN OF MALAYSIAN INTERNATIONAL GOURMET FESTIVAL HAS SUDDENLY TAKEN UP CORDON BLEU COOKING!
WHY SHE HAS DONE SO IS BEYOND ME AS SHE, BEING SO RICH, HAS A BATTALION OF SERVANTS AND CHEFS TO PAMPER TO HER EVERY NEED, ESPECIALLY CULINARY ONES AND ALL THE FOOD AT HER HOUSE PARTIES WERE USUALLY CATERED SO SHE NEVER HAD TO LIFT A FINGER!
I CANNOT COOK TO SAVE MY LIFE AND EVEN I WOULD NEVER CONTEMPLATE TAKING UP COOKING SO I CAN DISH UP A DECENT BOWL OF MAGGI MEE.
Still, stranger things have happened so this is not the weirdest.
This is the inaugural course by Sunway Le Cordon Bleu Institute of Culinary Arts so it is a historic event. This is a proper course and does not take all of 1 afternoon or even a weekend but a whole 9 months! Yes, the same length of time as a woman takes to get pregnant and give birth! 9 months to learn how to bake a cupcake and cook noodles! But this is a highclass French cuisine course so Datin Su Day will soon be dishing out truffled delights, cavair compotes and creme brulee. I still think it is easier to order from Lafite at Shangri-la KL and cheaper too as this course is for professionals but who knows, maybe Datin Su Day is contemplating opening a restaurant since she and hubby Dato Steve Day are already running Malaysia International Gourmet Festival so she might as well promote her own eatery during the month long gorging.
Datin Su Day is the oldest participant though she looks all of 35. Even her teachers are younger than her let alone her fellow students but so what, age is just a number although the smaller the better!
This is a labour of love as she has to get up at 6am to make it on time for classes. "This is something I have always wanted to do so it is now or never!" enthuses Datin Su Day. " I am determined to complete this course and so far it has been everything I expected."
At least next year she can bake my birthday cake for me so good for you, Datin Su! I am all ready to attend your graduation feast!
