Good Morning Garlichippy Pandesal!

Ever since I was a kid, I would always be excited to eat breakfast (not that I'm not ever excited to eat...just extra excited) when I would see a brown paper bag containing warm, soft pandesal on our dining table. Pandesal (Spanish pan de sal or "salt bread") is not really salty at all (at … Continue reading Good Morning Garlichippy Pandesal!

Pan-fried Dory with Lemon Butter Sauce

Can you feel the Christmas spirit?! Because I can! Hola chicos y chicas! There are only 53 days left till we celebrate the 2000++ human birthday of Jesus Christ.

Nutty Oatmeal Recipe for an Oatsome Breakfast

Who wants oatmeal for breakfast?! I love having oatmeal for breakfast, especially if it's rolled oats. I like how it's so common, relatively cheap (although rolled oats are a tad more expensive than instant oats), and versatile--you can cook it plainly, with just milk and sugar, or go overboard with the toppings by adding fruits … Continue reading Nutty Oatmeal Recipe for an Oatsome Breakfast

Search For The Sage and My First Dish for 2011

After I dropped by school to submit my notebook filler and confirm my acceptance in my course (go IMC!),  I headed to Rustan's Supermarket and shopped for my first ever dish for 2011!! Unfortunately, my parents brought our two cameras with them so I had no recording device to chronicle today's adventure. Nevertheless, it was … Continue reading Search For The Sage and My First Dish for 2011

Run It!

Last November, I signed myself in running class to fulfill my requirement for P.E. In spite being the only member of our block to sign up for that class and the fact that it starts at 7:30 A.M. every Monday and Thursday, I still opted for it. I feared volleyball (surprisingly) and preferred to travel … Continue reading Run It!
