Jeanette Aw ‘blacked out’ while baking at her bakery Once Upon A Time
The 42-year-old actress will be taking a sabbatical to “recover, recalibrate and reset”.
Foodies hankering after Jeanette Aw’s consistently sold-out bakes will have to wait a bit longer. The 42-year-old recently “blacked out” while baking at her newly opened bakery, Once Upon A Time.
In a post on Instagram on Saturday (Aug 7), Aw wrote, “After pushing limits for the entire month, the body just decided to give way. Mentally and physically. I blacked out in this place of pristine white. Sincere apologies for not being able to fulfill the orders today.”
Since throwing open the doors of her bakery in May, Aw has been inundated with orders. Besides baking to fill her shelves, the actress recently worked with partners such as Dior Beauty to create customised goodies.
In the post, Aw also said, “This was envisioned as a place of joy, where I shared this joy with all of you through my bakes. But I guess in this real world, joy and kindness is very easily drowned out.”
She ended by saying that she will be reassessing her priorities. "I will be taking September to rest and we will not be opened. Time to recover, recalibrate and reset the entire order system.”
Get well soon, Jeanette.
