the day i become an aussie chick

Couple weeks ago, I officially became an Australian citizen. The ceremony was held at the Canning Council. There were 35 new citizens, 31 adults and 4 chidlren from 9 countries. We said our pledge then the Mayor handed out the citizenship certificate, and we posed with the Mayor and our family. We got one native pot plant each as a pressie.

After, we sang Advance Australia Fair, we were invited to stay for light refreshments. Not too bad though...

Although I'm an Australian now, I'm still the same person I was before. I still love my rice as my basic staple, sambal, and salty fish... I am still Ria from the kampung...:D
