Winter Is Coming

I am not a Monday kinda gal.  In fact, I get all over lazy and a little bit dreading the start of the work grind.  But today is different.  Like most peeps I am feverishly excited.  Winter is coming so they say. The entire twitterverse is a -buzz with the highly anticipated Season 7 premier…

A Different View

Write. Stop. Hibernate. Repeat.  This has been a vicious cycle for this blog.  For some reason I cannot bring myself over the hill and get on smooth sailing.  I have all it inside my head but putting words to motion is elusive. In retrospect, I think along with my blogging, my life seem to be…

Elvis Presley Pound Cake

    Pound cake, homies!  This cake is one of my absolute favorites.  I first learned to make this a few years back but I wasn’t really successful in my first attempts.  The flavor was right, the texture, however was a failure.  After a little research and countless baking, I finally did it. Pound cake,…

Movie + Chicken = KPOP

Korea’s staggering influence in our culture really amazes me.  Case in point is the phenomenal  Train to Busan.  There is nothing spectacular, just your typical zombie flick with English subtitles.   Surprisingly though, the movie turned out to be really good.  I enjoyed it even.  There is a skill I think Korean film makers are…

Pan de Biscotcho

One of our weekend breakfast staple is pandesal.  Kobe, my eldest is a bread monster.  I mean really, his face would always light up whenever there is fresh, hot bread on the table.  The thing is, sometimes I get carried away and end up having left overs.  So what do I do with left over…

Honey Lemon Roasted Chicken

If there is one recipe I can stake my life on without any doubt, I would say ROAST CHICKEN.  Not only is chicken one of my favorite proteins, it has also been my go-to recipe for potluck gatherings.  Over the years, I have accumulated more than a handful roast variations.  I will elaborate on other…

working-out

  As promised, Im writing about my latest work-out discovery, the Zumba.  I first heard this from friends abroad.  They say that doing the zumba aside from being so much fun, it also really works up a ton of sweat. Sweat and fun…two magic words that sold me out.  Bingo!  Exactly what I need.  Immediately…

too early for world cup

A  for effort.  This is the grade I am giving the Philippine Azkals for their performance in last night’s qualifying game against Kuwait.  It was obvious from the start that our team is in for the greatest challenge yet in their football careers.  I mean look at what were they up against.  The Kuwait team…
