Considering of the 'negativity' Transformers: Age of Extinction got, which installment of the live-action series did you prefer more?

I apologise for the late delay. Despite not being able to update for a while (except the one questionnaire) combined with my TAFE studies. I have an overdue anniversary project that I was going to continue folding, until Mum decided to throw them out. EVEN WHEN I TOLD HER THAT I'LL DO IT AFTER TAFE FINISHES! Now I have to start all over again!

Long story short, I applied to study Certificate 4 in Patisserie. It wasn't any easy subject (considering of not only the multiple assessments, combined with studying, and it make me struggle a bit on how to balance work and schoolwork. Despite the odds, I was about to finish all of the subjects! Unfortunately, I forgot that there was one subject I failed, and so as a result, I have to repeat the core unit (filled chocolate confectionery) again! At least it wasn't the entire course, otherwise I would have complained! Speaking of complain, there are moments in which they could have improved service standards, including better timetable management and recipes that are more suited to the students. And for some bizarre reason, when I started my second semester they gave me a Part-Time student ID instead of a Full-Time even though I was a full-time student in Semester 1!

I just hope someone gives me a patisserie or chocolates book so that could help me practice more. But I do have an example of what I did!

If I have time before this year ends, I'll see if I can send a deviation or two. Like I said, I've been quite busy with work and TAFE over the years. Plus, Christmas wasn't easy for me as well. Mainly because my original intention of utilising Nigella Lawson's Full Festive Ham recipe backfired on me when the ham fell apart after the brining process! Of course being the complainer, Mum (having spent her part in buying it) was having a huge rant matching the equivalent of a cyclone about how I shouldn't try 'strange recipes' and that the ham was all wasted. As with her rants, she never apologises (must have been during her upbringing during the Cultural Revolution due to lack of tertiary education). However, at least my sister cloudrat.deviantart.com… was more forgiving - she suggested that I can salvage the best of the ham and turn it into a festive pulled pork dish to make up for it. Which I exactly what I should do tomorrow - my sincerest apologies for the rant.

On the plus side, I had more success in making a Christmas Tea variant of Heston Blumenthal's Earl Grey Tea Cookies though!

In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and a Happy New Year for tomorrow! :)

I wouldn't call myself an expert. I watch anime, but I'm the wrong person to ask if I do anime.
