A Wish List for 2015
For many of us, the New Year symbolises a new beginning -- be it of a business idea, a new relationship or just re-building the habit of reading a book a week! There are, however, many stories that hover around, belonging to the people in the streets. The Star People team brings to you a wish list for 2015 from people surviving in the capital, who dare to dream of a better future.
Over 160 years, the Prince of Wales bakery has been serving mouth-watering pastries and cakes to thousands of customers. In 2015, Nuruddin Ahmed, the owner of the bakery, says that he would want easy access to pure supplies of ingredients to bake cakes. "Even if you spend a lot of money, pure ingredients are very hard to come by," he says.
Located in Lakshmi Bazaar near the famous St. Gregory church, this bakery is claimed to be a pioneer in Bangladesh. It is known for its famous fruit cake, cheese cake, and the popular flavours titled love letters, jam tacks and so much more. The bakery is also one of the firsts to have baked wedding and Christmas cakes in Dhaka.
Established by a British gentleman from Wales, the bakery had been passed down to Sheikh Buddhu Mia. “My Father Sheikh Buddhu Mia used to work for the British gentleman who owned the joint. After he left, my father became the owner,” says Nuruddin Ahmed.
Nuruddin also says that he wishes the year 2015 to be peaceful for Bangladesh.
