My baker refused to bake me a cake with Malaysia flag! He said in previous years, they (the bakeries) used to do it for Merdeka. But last year, some moron (my own description, not his) said it is against telur (the law) to eat our Malaysia flag.

PM’s Dept: Cakes with Jalur Gemilang disrespectful
By IZATUN SHARI
PUTRAJAYA: It is not appropriate to bake cakes with the Jalur Gemilang design on them.
According to the Prime Minister’s Department’s ceremonial division and international conference secretariat, it is not proper to make cakes with the national flag design on them but it has now become a practice by many people.
“Some people think that it is all right to bake cakes with the national flag design on them, but actually, it is inappropriate because later, they will be cut and eaten. The gesture is not appropriate,” a spokesman from the secretariat said today.
So, he said he cannot do it. No problemo. The 5xmom and sons got a way to deal with it.
You see, I thought of contributing a cake for my church youth group’s Merdeka BBQ this Saturday. So, I ordered a 2.5 kg cake.
(The above is the birthday kid with a small hazel nut praline cake)
Since the event is for youths age 13-35 years old, I cannot bring a Doraemon or Teletubbies cake which bakers are used to bake. So, I thought why not make a Malaysia flag cake. Since my dear baker is so afraid, my sons and I thought of a good idea for a cake. No, it is not Pakla cake (‘cos baker cannot bake cake tanpa teloq). Hahaha.
You will have to wait to see what cake we ordered. It is so funny the bunch of us were laughing so hard at the baker.
We are acting the ‘dig our nose’ pose at the restaurant where we had lunch.
You do not need to tell me my eldest son looks like me. I know liao. All come from my womb, sure same face lah.
I am with STUPID.
