New Webcomic

I found this through deviantart :) konti pa lang, pero so far masaya. Especially to fans of Silent Hill.

babysitter... NOT!

I've been left in the house with my bro and my younger sis.

When lunchtime came along I scraped off the last of the rice leftover from breakfast and served it along with our choice of food opened straight out of the can. Wan wisely prepared her own meal.

I realized it was time to eat dinner at the usual way.

My tummy was growling and howling mutiny.

So I went down to cook rice, only to find our rice bin empty. I went to the phone to try having food delivered(parrying guys' calls for wan) but it's past delivering time. I decided to go out and buy takeout but wan insisted I stay home and cook, opening a fresh sack of rice.

Por que hindi siya kakain ng lulutuin ko.

But it's still sweet of her to prepare the pot and place it on the stove for cooking. I tried to watch it but somehow it still got burned. She asked me what viands we'll be having. I decided on hotdogs over fish. I did what I could remember from the last I really cooked(1997): heated the skillet, added oil, then put the food in. But they burned the moment they touched the surface. I was told it's because I let the skillet heat up too much. So dinner is served. Burned rice and burned hotdogs.

I knew I should have bought pizza.

I washed up after I served the dinner to my bro Allan. By the time I got to get dinner for myself I barely saved 2 last hotdogs from my bro who has been demolishing them at an amazing speed(to think they're burned, too). As usual, Wan the HRM graduate made a meal for herself. Nakakahiya naman kung utusan ko, I was put in charge to take care of them, not the other way around.

Now washing dishes I have no problem with, I even find it therapeutic. It's just frustrating how I suck at cooking. But like I learned 7 years ago, I just need enough practice. 1997 my sister Vivi and I moved into a dorm where we can cook our own food. within 2 semesters I became confident enough to cook for myself and my friends. I'm still nowhere near chef level but at least I could feed myself.

Anyway, whenever I'm told "di ka pwedeng mag-asawa" I just say I'd get married because I want to live the rest of my life loving my husband, not cooking for him.

But still, I appreciate it whenever someone cooks for me. I got used to eating for the sake of surviving; so eating as a luxury, as an activity to enjoy is very special for me. It is the rare times I get to know what it feels like to live to eat, instead of my default eat to live.

So yeah, to every one who ever cooked/baked/made anything for me; rest assured, I still remember you, and will never forget you, even if some of you are not that close to me as we used to be. As for the rest, I'm just glad fate granted me to let us be closer :)

I remember them all, from brownies made for my birthday, to even the instant noodle soup a roommate made for me when I was sick.

Excuse me for my line of thought, I'm hungry again :9

Hello Ariel!

Ok Ok! Here ya go:

Yesterday I went to my cousin's engagement party in Greenhills. We were so late though we missed the gift exchange ceremony practiced by Chinese families. But we saw the gold medallions they were wearing and the bride to be was wearing thick gold bangles wound together by red cords.

The meal was DIVINE! It was catered with Chinese specialties among others. There was the usual fruit salad and fried chicken, but there was also grilled sugpo split in half and grilled steak as well as sweet ham you may eat either in honey or as pan de sal sandwiches. There was also that egg/mushroom chinese soup and stir fried vegetables and chinese fried rice, and mini-beehives and caramel bars for dessert.

After that we went to Ayala Center to find an abay outfit for me because my Achi Vivi is getting married next month :D The color motif is turquoise. We went to Landmark and looked for a gown/outfit that's below P1500. The best we could find was a light turquoise gown with beaded backless halter top, with a long slinky turquoise skirt with a slit up my left thigh. It was P995 with a 30% off, but the problem is that it was obvious why it's 30% off, it looked old. The fabric shows obvious signs of wear and tear.

We went to SM Makati next through Glorietta, browsing in dress shops along the way. But besides the color turquoise being hard to find, the Glorietta price tags are simply above budget. We reached SM and went through the Ladies Wear department store. Beya found me a turquoise midcalf flouncy skirt at P650 and I chose a glittery light turquoise backless halter top for P299.95. I found my abay outfit :)

On the way back to the car we pass by baratillos and such. Besides browsing for vanilla scented stuff like lotions and perfumes(think Body Shop), I was also hoping to find that glitter tattoo kit Abi mentioned she saw in Watson's Megamall, but I never had the time. We passed by Candy Corner tho and I loved the giant chocolate covered malt balls. Reminded me of Rolling Stones I used to eat as a kid :D Heck, I love anything with chocolate on 'em!

We bought Smokey's hotdogs on the way to the Park Square 2 carpark (it's cheaper to park there). I chose baconwrapped cheesedog. As for drinks, I prefer water, but anything non-carbonated would do, so I ordered iced tea. In South Super Hi-way we stopped over the gas station where we bought in Starbucks. I ordered Peppermint mocha. When we got home I showed the outfit to the girls. Wan wanted to keep my outfit and have me buy another one because she likes it on herself, but the bride insisted she go buy her own :)
