Updates and Doodles

Hola amigos/amigas! Sorry for being MIA (with guilt). I've been hooked to this micro blogging called Twitter and that made me lose some focus on baking/cooking. Talking to awesome guys I've met there just drove my heart out of myself, then got stuck on twitter for a couple of days now.

AHA! Found another reason why I got myself so busy! :D Mom lost my ATM card and I had to visit the bank to replace my card with a new one, which took me a whole day to accomplish. Had this certificate autographed by a lawyer and paid Php100 for his signature. I can't grumble and ask why his signature's so expensive though. Yet I don't understand why. -_-

And...I wanna greet my cyber friend's blog a HAPPY 4TH BLOGVERSARY! (Visit Fiel's blog here.)

Thank you for this lovely award dear Fiel!

In exchange to this, here's a humble doodle art I made just for you!

Another one for my long lost blogger friend Kuya Jhiegzh! ;D

Hoping you'll like these guys :)

And...please do visit my new baby here:

Thats all for tonight folks! :D

Panda Onigiri Tutorial

Buenas tardes amigos/amigas! Mentioned on my previous post that I just bought packs of nori sheets (dried seaweeds used for sushi, maki and other rolls) for only Php10. And I guess it's way better to eat this flavorful stuff in a cute way rather than just a topping for ramen.

So tonight, Imma show you how to make cute (let's assume it's cute!) panda onigiri.

Hanbok; A Taste of Korea in Laguna

This somehow reminds me of our first catering last 2011. Why? It has the same name as our project "Taste of Korea"! Okay, I miss wearing my over-sized laboratory gown which I seldom wear even before.

By the way, this small food stall was named after Korea's traditional dress/costume. Bff and I tried to ask the ladies working inside but they don't have any idea why. A traditional dress' name for a restaurant? (Why not!?) Hmmm. So, I guess we just have to leave it that way.

Hanbok is located along Lopez Avenue near UP Los Baños. It is just a small food place overdecorated with Korean posters but it has more than what you think it has. They cater not only special Korean dishes like Korean BBQ, Bulgogi, Umorice, Bibimbop, but also Korea's famous instant noodles and Nori sheets arranged in a shelf shown in the photo below.

"Without the dark, we'd never see the stars."

Let's start this post with the popular quotation from the author of Twilight. Read the rest of the story to know why. ^_^

I've been MIA for a couple of days now (just reblogging sponsored post and press realease). It's not because I got an opportunity to work in Laguna, as I posted on my previous post last month, but things didn't came quite well. I quitted on the training and brought all of my stuffs back where they really belong. After a night in my new room, I just found out that the company wanted me to join the second batch of trainees, which will start after a month or two. Yes, they haven't told me at first, they really are selfish, they didn't replied to any of my messages and they just love to let me wait for them with my tongue tied in silence. -_-

By 7 in the evening, my parents arrived and we left the boarding house by 9, they (my parents and my landlords) had a long conversation about friends and plants, random ehh? So now I'm here in our house again! ^_^ Happy and blessed despite of everything, cause I have a very supportive parents, well I guess I don't need to elaborate, a best friend who helped me find a nice room and prayed for my safety, and of course, I have what I have now and I'm pretty contented. :) There's more to come, but don't count the chicks yet!

If only you knew how excited I am right now to bake some pastries again, try new food and stuffs, and mostly importantly, blog about them!

Plus, I just had my first transaction with Sample Room, I won a Torque Mobile from twitter, a black dress from Oasap, beauty product samples from Ate Celline's blog and earrings and bracelets from Jen's blog. All of the prizes aren't with me yet, but I'm so ecstatic to receive the parcels! I really can't wait! :)
