Second round of my food diary. I’m now thinking of upping my photography game. All my photos are just effortlessly taken with my phone and I don’t think about making it pretty because it’s the first time I’ve created the dish, and I think I’ll do it again in the future, [then] I’ll be making the photo pretty. Hmmm. I have time for that.
Anyway let me know what you think in the comments…
Extra large Spanish Tortilla
Nonna’s at Solenad 3, Nuvali. Pizza was great. Meatballs were great. Pasta was, meh.
I know that a lot of people like Banapple. But it just doesn’t cut for me. From the main course food to the dessert, and their bad service. Oh God, that pissed me off. Banapple-Solenad 3, Nuvali.
Ube and Keso sorbetes. YUM
This is for all the Lasallians. They sell this ice cream sandwich in school. I tried it. And it was horrible. The ice cream was icy as frozen milk. It tasted mainly of condensed milk. Just… Just no.
This is Korean mochi filled with red bean and drenched in soy bean powder. Delicious. You can find this in Korean groceries.
I’m not a wine connoisseur though I wish I was.
First time to make tortillas. PLS how do you make them circular.
Living up to the procrastinator that I am, I’m writing my first blog post of the year. Oh happy new year by the way! Well, what has happened? Let’s see: I went through my 1st year of college, I gained and lost friends (and weight), I had loads of adventures. Basically my life has been given more exciting opportunities or rather, I claimed them myself. (Yay, finally something rousing has happened.)
At the moment, I am basking in the glory of summer vacation. When you go tocollege in DLSU, your time is gold. So I guess it’s safe to say that all Lasallians (who are not taking the special term) are gratefully lazing around in their summer vacation. I think I’m the only person who has not left for a real vacation. Everyone’s gone off to the beach or out of town, whilst I spend 70% of my day in front of my laptop, watching youtube or American Horror Story. Coping with the heat by munching on korean ice cream and chunks of ice. Little did I know, my unimaginative summer was going to be a spectrum of adventures.
This May, I am bound for South Korea to learn the Korean language and culture. This started as simply as my father asking me if I wanted to go to Korea. Well of course I want to. So right now, I am set up to leave in two weeks and stay there until August. There is a legit Korean training center I am attending to. So it’s not exactly vacation-type. Challenging, YES. It goes on for 10 weeks and I will go to school for 5-days. But everytime I think about it, I just think about Tim Doner. You know, 19-year old hyperpolyglot. (Who’s super cute as well) But I think it won’t be too bad given that I’m going to live in an awesome country for about three months. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
When my dad told me he’s going to send me to Korea, the first thing I looked up is the concerts. There are some RAD shows featuring artists such as the Foo Fighters, Noel Gallagher, The Kooks, Rudimental, PTX, more. Speaking about concerts, I have been to several awesome ones and I missed blogging about the best ones, so maybe I’ll put up some posts about them. But I can firmly say that my other adventures will go up in this vapid site.
Can’t wait for more things to come, AND I will share it will the internet!!! Brilliant
Hi. I have been craving to write about things in my head and I really don’t know why I have never tried opening this website again. Well. Lazy.
I wanted to write, really, I was just storing my thoughts and ideas in my head for quite some time and writing on my planner about writing on my blog.
I don’t even know if real people check this out but it’s okay. I guess quality-wise, my posts are downhill because I will lessen the photos?? I DONT KNOW. Maybe just more words. People really love visual stuff I do too but okay I will just do whatever I feel like doing. Like RANTING, or um giving recommendations, advices, OPINIONS, and just basically blasting out my mind.
It’s 9 55 PM and I’ve just finished making boxes for my gifts and for people’s orders. These dozens and dozens of boxes are for food gifts. I’m making food gifts for Christmas and I’m also selling food gifts. It has been tiring!
So it is finally the Christmas break. I have been waiting for this for so long. Christmas is everyone’s favorite time of the year. It’s just perfect. Cold weather, hot chocolate, relaxing vibes, gifts, lots of eating, lots of drinking (?). You get the picture.
After all the stress in school, this is more than anything I could wish for. I haven’t been sleeping much because our 3rd quarter in school was forcefully crammed to fit before 2014. We took our Periodical Exams this week and the quarter is finally over. Next year, it’ll be new again.
So I was pretty disappointed on how my blog is turning out to be. If I had existential crisis in my life before, my blog is experiencing its own now. I took some time to ponder on the purpose of this blog.. Why did I create a blog? Does this blog benefit me or the society? Is this important? Why am I not active in blogging then?
Let us clear the cloud over here. ((Answering my own questions)) Here are the reasons why I created a blog:
I felt the need to express myself more truthfully and my opinions. I felt like no one really understands. I’m part-introvert and I like to vent it out here.
I wanted to have a little community with my readers
I wanted to be known as the blogger
I thought blogging was pretty cool
To practice my writing skills
To share my interests and to let people know about the stuff I’m into
To do something on my spare time.
Some of those are still applicable to my blogging purpose today but the real purpose of this blog is for me to document or write down my adventures in life, little or big, that it may remind me of my achievements, things that made me happy, or sad, or mad, as long as it’s noteworthy. Why not keep a pen and paper journal then? Who knows what I may do or say that can inspire others or help them relate with me. I think that is a good enough reason to keep on updating this blog. I’m not making any promises on what this blog is going to be… Maybe a food blog? Let it be
So these past few weeks, we’ve been bonding with our relatives because first, two of my cousins are graduating, and my uncle just had his birthday. We’re really close to each other and we always have a good time. So I just wanna share with y’all my famiLEE. 🙂
Kat, my sister and Bea, my cousin.
We were talking about College. She’s Angela (or Francine), my cousin. She’s an incoming college freshman and she took the exam in DLSU, ADMU, and UP and she passed them all! She’s a genius okay. She’s going to take the toughest course in UP which is BS Administration&Accountancy. I’m so proud of her. Haha 🙂
Alli, my youngest cousin, all dressed up like the Barden Bellas
Squished face with ate Max
Endorsers of Jamba Juice?
That day ended quickly. So we’re off to tito Bok’s birthday after 2 days, I think? I just wanna feature my pretty siblings.
Got my title from the song “One Day More” by the cast of Les Mis. Haha
Anyway, my Junior year is over and I’m about to take my college review classes this whole month of April. I’m going for MSA with my friends. And I really wanna go to Arrrneoo. Yuh. When I saw the application forms, I thought, damn I wanna repeat my high school. So for you young people, do really well in high school and have a lot of co-curricular activities. (I have very few of those)
So the week before our school ended, my class and I had our recollection and we went out for a pool and pizza party for our farewell and Victory in our Hamlet play and also for doing a really good job in our Noli Me Tangere play. (Yeah, we have a lot of plays, our teachers love to see us act)
One billion rising daw?
Yan ang jumpshot
Over all, my school year was… Okay. It’s fine. Adjusting wasn’t all that easy. I still miss my best friends. I still miss my previous school too. To my classmates who think I didn’t have fun, well I did. We all know we had a lot of laugh together. Thanks Ehren!
I made this granola a long time ago and I’ve long been wanting to post this in my blog. Granola is healthy and it’s so delicious. It’s made with the healthiest ingredients.
I use my granola as a topping for my yogurt or oatmeal and sometimes I just like to munch on it.
I saw this very easy recipe somewhere. I’m not sure if it’s in Ina Garten’s show “Barefoot Contessa” because it’s been so long since I watched that episode. The ingredients just got stuck in my mind so I made up the measurements. You know, the measurements are just up to yourself. Don’t be afraid to add up more spices to this because it’s all about enjoying eating in your unique taste.
My ingredients are:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
MIx it all up. Pop it in the oven for 15-20 mins or until golden brown –150degrees Celsius.
I got my granola a bit burnt because I left the house for awhile and I forgot to go back in time. So no photos for the finished product. 😦
