Cake Boss

Guest post written by Rolf Tate


Being an avid fan of Ace of Cakes, I was disappointed to here that this season would be it's final season on air. I was pleasantly surprised to find a show very similar to it in Cake Boss on the TLC channel. I already watch a few TV shows on the TLC channel regularly on direct TV and Cake Boss is just another show added to the list. In my humble opinion it is even better than Ace of Cakes. It's really the entire Ace of Cakes concept of either taking on way too many jobs for the week or having to produce a cake that becomes an elaborate thirty hour event. I know what you are thinking, "If it's the same, how is it better?" Two words: Jersey accents. Jersey accents are just way more entertaining and funnier than a bunch of wannabe rock stars using rock n' roll music metaphors. Plus wannabe mobsters are way more entertaining than wannabe rock stars. In addition, not to be mean, but watching them fail is funnier than watching them succeed; and they fail a lot. The show follows Chef Buddy Valastro of Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey as he tries to make ridiculous moving robot cakes, Tower of Pisa cakes and the like. Buddy is your typical arrogant bloke who basically blames everyone but himself when things inevitably go wrong. Seriously, I don't know the first thing about baking cakes, but I do know that cakes aren't supposed to move.

Tyler at 20 Months and 3 weeks

 I can't believe how Tyler grows so fast! He is now 20 months and 3 weeks and have been learning to talk and communicating with us. His learning more words everyday. He is good at saying things he wanted and expressing his feelings. He is active and wants to explore and get involve in everything he sees me do. But he is always cautious just like yesterday when we went to Banana's Fun Park an amusement park where kids can play. Tyler loved to see other children play and jump on those inflated huge stuffs they have but Tyler won't go in and jump because he was too scared. Even though he didn't go and play but still he had fun and enjoyed watching the children and walking around the park.

Driver's License

My Pinay friend called me the other day and told me that she is preparing for her DMV test to get her driver license. She said that she has been studying but she is having a hard time studying her study guide that she got from the local DMV office. I told her to go online and do some DMV practice test which will help her better. She said she did too. I tried to check for other websites that would help her get more DMV cheat sheet so she could prepare herself well and be ready for her test and pass it and then go on to take her driving test and pass it as well. I already got my driver license since 2008 and I am glad that I passed my written and driving test right away. It is a necessity here in the US that you can drive because you will get stuck in the house if you don’t learn to drive and it gives you more independence and more freedom if you can drive. I’m glad I didn’t give up learning to drive when my hubby taught me. He was really helpful in teaching me to drive not to mention his braveness to sit beside me while I’m just learning to drive along the highway.

Earthquake in Japan

It's so horrible to watch the news about the earhtquake that struck Japan yesterday and the damages it brought by the Tsunami. Japan is totally devastated and a lot of people died and their homes were destroyed. I called my parents yesterday when I found out that Philippines was also under high alert for Tsunami. I was glad that my hometown and other places in the Philippines wasn't affected by Tsunami. I also found out that my cousin who lives and works in Japan came back to the Philippines to pick her mother and her daughter to take them to Japan for a vacation were in Manila the other day and were waiting for their flight back to Japan for the next day have missed the catastrophe. I hope that they are really still in Manila while the earthquake and Tsunami happened. It's a divine intervention that and their lives were spared.
