Featuring the Union Jack, the Commonwealth Star, and the Southern Cross constellation. 

Last September 15, 2011, I posted this on my Twitter timeline: 
In Adelaide City... drove a friend- Marie to the Immigration; she'll take the citizenship test today. Good luck to her.  

Well, she passed.  This afternoon, Marie took her Australian citizenship pledge at Port Wakefield Council Office in Balaklava.  A dinner party immediately followed at our friend's place at Salter's Spring Road.  There were plenty of food, and the drinks were overflowing!  Everybody was happy.  

I baked a cake for the new Australian.  She was surprised and very happy when she saw it.  Marie loved it; she was very grateful!
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!  Oi, oi, oi! 

This was my first attempt to draw or paint (or whatever we call it) an Australian flag, and I'd say it was successful.  No doubt, this cake was the centrepiece of the celebration.

Ang dami mo ng nalalaman, doc. Besides sa photography, pati pag bake at pag decorate ng cake pinasok mo na rin. : D

It all started when I was craving for a mocha cake of my Aunt na nasa England. Tinawagan ko at hiningi ang recipe; then I discovered na madali lang pala ang baking.

Then I wanted to challenge myself with decorating, sa simula mahirap, pero habang tumatagal madali at mabilis na rin.

Nakakatuwa kasi maraming nag-a-appreciate, unlike sa mga manok namin, walang nagsasabing magaganda ang manok namin o di kaya'y masarap. U

so cute, very creative ka pala doc RJ...ganda! I wish I can bake a cake with nice frosting

RJ said...

Thanks po. Kung malapit lang kayo gagawan ko kayo ng birthday cake.

Busy palagi rito, nagpi-pretend lang akong hindi busy para ayos ang takbo ng buhay. U

Nagustuhan niyo po ano? Madali lang po yan, basic mocha chiffon then buttermilk frosting. Matagal nga lang sa decoration kasi ni-lay out ko pa ang Union Jack at stars.

A baker, a chef, a photographer, a vet. Tumataas na ang points for being an ilegible bachelor, RJ.

'twas a fantastic cake, doc rj!
you're not only good in baking; apparently, you're a wonderful artist! amazing! what else can you do? eat fire? just teasing!

Ganu'n po ba? Honestly, di ko po naramdaman. I've been to your blog, di lang ako nakakapag-iwan ng comment.

...and the taste was good, too! I'm sure maiba-blog niyo po kapag matikman niyo ang mga gawa ko.

Uhmn, other things I can do? Direct a show, I think. I've done this many times, family and company affair nga lang po.
