Rainbow Wonder Loaf

I have no idea that this bread has actually inspired me alot. Words kept on pops up in my head while half way baking it. I've written down everything and hope to enjoy it with you all. Please go to the bottom of this page for more.
Ingredients : (for 10x5x4.5" tray)
600gm bread flour
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp yeast
1 tspn salt
360gm water
40gm butter
Colouring ingredients :
*1 tspn bamboo charcoal powder
*1 tspn matcha powder (add 1 tspn water)
*1 tspn rose syrup
* a few drops of blue & purple colouring.

Method :
- combine all ingredients into a big mixing bowl, mix to form a soft dough.
- divide into 6 portion then mix each dough to one colouring ingredient.
- set aside to rest for an hour.

Now, knead each dough to release air and roll each into a long string. Then use three colours each for the braiding.

Then place the braided doughs into the baking tray and let to rest for 1/2 hour or untill the dough reaches 90% of the tray. Finally, bake at 155'c for about 40-45 mins. Quickly remove the loaf from tray once it's done. Leave to cool completely before slicing.
And here's my note :
Colour your life
as simple as what you think it is
be happy and healthy that ain't money can buy
Colour your life
no matter you're poor or sick or whatever it is
be sure you enjoy every moment untill the fullest of it
Colour your life
even if just as simple as a loaf of bread
be sure every single bite of it ended up in your belly with joy
And I'm going to colour my life with this rainbow wonder loaf!
