Good Old Days - I'm Back

It's been a long break, longer then i expected, but nevertheless I'm back, breathing a little easier now.
I'm suppose to be back earlier but as i was busy going for interviews on the search of a new job thus the delay.
The good news is i finally clinch my new job yesterday after a torturous 3 hours interviewed by 3 different departments HOD, I'm quite excited about this job though, I'll be doing things i never done before in my entire work life, my current job is my first job, I've been in my current company for 8 years, something that was quite shocking to the interviewers hahaha... Anyway bless me in my new job will you ;)).

To celebrate my new job, I baked this cake, to remind me of the good old days and the huge step I'm taking right now especially at this time of the year (Alan, Cathy and lots of my friend are real happy that i finally decided to move on haha).

Just look at that lovely golden hue, makes your day brighter too don't they? a bite into a slice will make my day brighter that's for sure. Moist and crumbly take 1 will you and make a cup of coffee or tea to go with it.
