What is the best hobby you have?

Moist chocolate cake

I have that asked myself often times. I have a lot of hobbies but what I love most is baking. Maybe I have chosen the wrong job in my life. Maybe I should have learned to be a baker or maybe a confectioner, not to be a teacher. The photo is the decorated moist chocolate cake I have made for the friend of my best friend. This is the finished product of the cracked chocolate cake I have baked last time. I have written about it if you remember. Sorry my friends that I was not here much. I am trying to learn about my new but old Ipad. Maybe I will be often here tomorrow when I am at work. If I don't have a client, I use my time for Mylot. It is midnight here and I have to go to bed again. I hope your day was fine. I was free today but I have videochatted with my family and Angus in the Philippines . They are all fine. How about you? Anyway, see you tomorrow in your posts. I will try to catch up with my notification and comment to your discussions. Good night!

Thank you @Susan2015. I used to do puzzle in the 80's. I still read magazines when I feel to.

Yes, I can @kepweng but I am not good in business. I am earning though from baking for others but this will stay as a hobby.

Your cake is so beautiful, I love it! The decorations look so pretty. I don't care to bake, but my best hobby is collecting rocks. I have rocks from all over the place, wherever we go I bring one home.

@kobesbuddy I don't care to bake either, not good at it. My idea of cooking is the microwave! I do make dinner once a week, but most of it comes from a box or can. My husband is the one who likes to cook.

You did a great job on the cake! I used to love baking but don't do it too much anymore. I'm not sure what my best hobby is. I would say writing but I make money from that so I don't think it's a hobby anymore. So maybe drawing.

Thank you @Srbageldog. Writing is also a good hobby. I earn from baking cakes too but it is still a hobby as I don´t do it every day.

Thank you @Corbin5. Reading is one of my hobbies too although lately, just online. I used to sew my own clothes when there was no C&A and other shops yet, which sell petite clothes. The last time I sew was last year when I sew curtains for my Philippines home.

Thank you @andriaperry. Taking care of old houses and making them pretty again is super good. I love to watch this kind of show, "before and after" of old houses and even apartments. It needs a talent to do it right.

It is not too late to become a baker. I have a friend who is a school teacher and she bakes in her spare time.

There is no late if we want something to learn @Scrapper88. I don´t want to spend my time going to school and waking up early for that. I am in my late 50´s and don´t need the stress. Nowadays, we can learn a lot from youtube.

I think I should have also learnt to be a baker, or may be a Chef. I like to cook more than any other thing.

@thelme55 Thank you Thelma, I love to cook and bake, but I never went to a school and when I see what my cousin (who is a chef) can make, I am in awe.

@LadyDuck so do I. Watching a chef cooking and working have taught us how to cook and bake as well. I suppose that is because we are interested.

I needed 1 year to finish my BSE college education @hereandthere but I got married and went to Germany. Yes, I am using my knowledge to my small nieces and teach them what I can. Angus is fine. He can still recognise my voice and keep on looking around when I call him through video chat.

@thelme55 what language does angus understand? german, english, tagalog, bisaya? i guess he's multilingual like you. hehe.

@hereandthere I am wondering about that too. I think dogs can understand and react to the sound of our languages, not the language itself. I speak to Angus in different languages and he understands me.

But at least you have a job that earns you much there. Baking is my Waterloo. I have already two failed cakes that I baked before. So, I gave up and never tried again. That cake looks so delicious! Please give me a slice.

Yes, indeed @SYMPLYD. A part time job that is good does my travel expenses. . I wish I could give you a slice but the cake is already gone. Enjoy your weekend there.

I like walking, running and my new favourite hobby of playing poker online. Been playing at PlayOJO and Sky Vegas, it's awesome fun. I tend to see friends as much as possible too and hope to hit a big jackpot one day and fly around the world.
