Creative Spaces ~ Madhu from Miel Bakes
My parents named me Madhu which means "honey" in Sanskrit. Home to me is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with my man and our two sons.
As a child I remember, vividly, my mother passionately whipping up the most delicious butter cakes whilst my father was absorbed in taking photographs. As I write this I realize I am taking after both their footsteps!
Having spent many years in England and Wales as a student I came back home with an accountancy degree and my very first cookbook by Marguerite Patten which I purchased with a book voucher I won for having written the best Physics essay in class!
I joined the corporate world and was climbing the walls when my latent joy and passion in baking resurfaced. I am now doing it as business and pleasure right from my favourite place, my home. I love that my kitchen overlooks the lounge as I like being close to the sound of my family whilst I satisfy my passion.
When I am not baking I enjoy doing up my home. My favourite style has to do with comfort and whatever makes me happy from white painted furniture to bursts of colours here and there. Looking around my home I dare say it reflects my all time favourite magazine "Country Living - UK".
Besides family, baking and home I am also enjoying my spiritual journey as I try my best to synchronize with the music of the universe.
Thanks so much for giving us a peak into your home and life, Madhu. You're an inspiration. :)
And, I have a question for YOU, my sweet readers. What in your opinion makes Miel's home a creative space? What inspires you about her decorating style? What makes your home a creative space?
