Hi all,
In today (17/1/2012) theSun newspaper, Lydia Teh metaphorically describes the word 'SORRY' as two parts.
She says Part 1 : Sorry is like readily available packet tissues at a petrol station counter coz it is in abundant supply everywhere. It's a courtesy apology and though appreciated, is quickly forgotten and discarded like a used tissue.
She describes Part 2 : Sorry is like a toilet tissues at a petrol station. They are never there when you need them the most. It is in great demand but is a scarce commodity. Supply can be restored with one simple action : flushing pride down the toilet.

The cupcakes (chocolate flavour) below were ordered by Fisha. I bet she is saying the Part 2 sorry :)

While we are synonym with Part 1 Sorry, don't forget the Part 2 Sorry too. And what best to say it if not with cupcakes from Coco Chip Cupcake.
Love cupcake. Love you all :)

(Note : Lydia Teh is a columnist in Tete-a tete column, mother, author & centre manager at Cambridge English for Life.)
