For how many months I kept on bugging my aunt to buy an oven because I really wanted to learn how to bake and to try out new dishes, so last year just before Christmas she finally decided to buy an oven and I was very happy and excited to use it. That Christmas time I baked a lasagna and a new york cheesecake and I was happy with the result because it tasted good. It is already almost a year and I am already so used to using the oven because whenever I’m not busy I try to make time to try out new recipes to bake.
So to make this long story short, last monday evening I decided to bake because my tito ordered a 4 dozen of red velvet cookies for my mommy’s birthday. I decided to make the dough of the red velvet ahead of time and just chill it for the night so that I can bake it the next morning without too much of a hassle and also to have an ample amount of time to prepare because I also need to go meet up with my aunt at the mall.
When I was done making the dough I decided to bake a batch of smaller pieces so that I could eat it for a snack, when I already placed the dough in the cookie tray, I let it sit first because I still have to preheat the oven and as I was already trying to light it up, I couldn’t find the match in the kitchen and remembered that it was in our living room area (I don’t even know why it got there) so I started walking there for approximately just 8-10 steps and left our oven already turned on and the gas was already leaking out because I thought that it was okay for me to leave it for just a few seconds, like literally a few seconds! When I lit the match and put it near the small hole in the bottom of our gas oven, it suddenly flashed out and the flame was so near my face that I it really scared the living daylights out of me!
My hands were shaking and I was breathing heavily, because I thought that what if it exploded and caused a fire? What if it burned our house down? I was really irresponsible that time and made me think if I still have the guts to bake and use the oven because it kind of traumatized me! Fortunately God is still so good because my index and middle finger were the only ones that got affected, I had a minor burn and although it stings a lot, it is fine with me as long as I didn’t die. lol.
What I did to treat the minor burnt area in my hand, I rubbed an ice cube on it for how many minutes so that it will not get worse and further damage skin tissues. I already learned my lesson and that is to not leave our gas oven unattended even just for a few seconds.
Here are a few burn remedies to treat your minor wounds:
- Cold Water
- Ice Cube
- Aloe Vera
- Coconut Oil
Christmas is my favorite time of the year, not just because I’ll receive gifts (although I’m extremely happy when I do) but mainly because of the weather. I like the gloomy kind of weather, since it’s always hot here in the Philippines, I like it when the sun doesn’t come out and just stays hiding for the rest of the day. I like it when I’m outside and my sweat isn’t dripping from my body and the sunlight isn’t painful to the skin.
I love cooking and because it’s almost Christmas, I have the excuse to cook my favorite dishes and whenever it is Christmas time I am always the one who cooks the food for my family. I love that I get to cook not just my favorite dishes but also to try the new recipes that I discovered. I love it when I get to cook for my family, especially on special occasions. I’m no master chef but it seriously warms my heart every time they tell me that they loved the food that I prepared for them.
I’m thrilled to know what presents I’ll be getting this year, I hope it will be something that is useful. Shoutout to my family and friends, I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m already accepting gifts! Haha! Kidding!
Anyway, it doesn’t really matter if I’ll receive something this Christmas, if I’ll receive something then I’ll be glad but if I don’t then it’s still all right with me, because what’s important is that my loved ones are safe, we’re all together, and I also wish that whatever hardships that we’re dealing right now, that we’ll be able to get through it.
Advance Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you and your family will have a Merry Christmas this year! 🙂
Ever since I’ve known about egg waffles I have been wondering what it taste like because from what I’ve seen on my Instagram feed it really looked so delicious so when I got to taste it at Happy Lemon I ordered their matcha egg waffle although the color is green, it still tasted a like plain waffle. Lol. Disappointing.
Anyway, when I learned about another egg waffle food stall that is currently selling at SM Lanang, I didn’t think twice and went with my friend just to satisfy my curiosity on whether their egg waffle tastes good (because it really looks so good in the picture). We traveled from SM Ecoland to SM Lanang with a public vehicle and not to mention that day was raining like cats and dogs so I think I really made an effort just to try it and I was really excited. We went straight away at the Mercado Locale located at the ground floor of SM Lanang, people were already lining up at the food stall when we got their so it took us like 5 minutes before we got to order. I ordered a matcha egg waffle with a vanilla ice cream and my friend got their plain chocolate flavor. We waited for like another 20 minutes but it is already understandable that we would wait a bit longer since there were a lot of people who already ordered before us, so we decided to look around at the other food stalls at the Mercado Locale as well.
When I was still in high school I was enrolled in a music school to learn how to play guitar, at first it wasn’t really a part of my plan to learn how to play an instrument and during that time I also had a friend who plays the drums and she encouraged me to enroll at a music school because she told me that it is also a great way to enjoy myself aside from the usual thing that I always do and she also said that the teachers there were very accommodating.
True to her words, the teacher that I was assigned to was very accommodating and also very patient in teaching me how to play guitar and because I was still a newbie my uncle lend me his guitar for the mean time and my mom promised me to buy a new one if I already mastered in playing the guitar. I had a hard time choosing a guitar at the mall during that time because I didn’t like the designs. Here in ikmultimedia you can choose a lot of guitar designs and they just don’t sell guitars but other instruments as well like drums, keyboards, and also instrument accessories. I have a lot of spare time right now so I think it will be a great time to play my guitar again.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day; hence we need to eat a healthy meal in order to have strength and to energize our body throughout the day, but how can you be healthy when what you eat during breakfast is a two or maybe five strips of bacon that is oozing with oily fats? You can still eat something delicious and be healthy without the need to eat grass. Just make yourself a delicious and sweet acai bowl for breakfast. You won’t just enjoy your breakfast but you will also have a healthy body since Acai has a lot of benefits because it is organic and has a high amount of antioxidants that is good for the heart, it can also make your skin look radiant, and it is also good for digestion.
I really wanted to try this acai bowl but I still don’t know where to buy it here in Davao. I don’t think that it is already available here. It would be so cool if there will be a restaurant here in Davao that will sell Acai, and I’m sure it will be a hit and people will love it, especially those who are into healthy food.
Have you ever experienced being so hungry but can’t decide on where to eat? Have you also experienced breaking down because you were just so hungry that you could barely think straight and you were already so cranky that you might flip everyone or anything you see? You know what? I have, I can’t even count how many times already. lol
Anyway, the whole point of this post is that last friday, my friend and I decided to go to this Korean Restaurant at Torres Street and the word buffet was really enticing and I was really excited that if there were no people around I would literally skip around while going there. So we arrived at the place where the Korean Buffet is located and once we went inside the restaurant, I was a tad bit disappointed when I saw the food that they were serving because there were only a few of it and that was not what I was expecting and I was like “am I really at a buffet restaurant?” So we decided to not eat there anymore because first: there were only a few choices on their menu and second: I didn’t like the ambiance of the place.
So we decided to go to Lachis instead and as we went there, we accidentally passed by this restaurant along Marfori Street called Taco Loco. Taco Loco is a Mexican restaurant and
Reading books is one of my favorite pastime activities especially when I’m home alone, whenever I’m at a certain place with no wifi, or if I just wanted to get away from reality for just awhile. My favorite kind of book to read is usually a young adult genre because I can somewhat relate to it and it is not that overly dramatic although there are still a few tearjerker parts of the book which I really love because I sometimes just want to ugly cry and I also like it when I am able to feel what the characters felt like in the book that I am currently reading, it feels like I am also there with them. It’s amusing for me when I read books because I can really feel their emotions and it feels like I am also a part of their lives and living with them and I sometimes feel like I am the main character of the book that I am reading. How i wish. lol.
So my favorite books so far are the following:
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I LOVE this book so much because I can really relate to it! Haha! I am a Kpop enthusiast and I have been ever since I was still in high school and this story just perfectly narrate what most fangirls feel (what I felt during that time). It wasn’t just about being a “fangirl” that got me so hooked up with this story, the main character of the book (Cath) is an introvert, I mean she’s really shy and just wants to be with her sister all the time and when they were already in college, Cath wasn’t able to adjust as quick as her
I have been stressed out for a couple of months now, although I try not to think much about my “problems” but it still shows especially in my face. From what I observed my face starts to break out when I am stressed out or when I also lack a good 6-8 hours of sleep. For the past months I can only count with both of my hands the nights that I slept like a baby, I couldn’t sleep properly because of too much over thinking (about my future plans) that it is already affecting my body clock. As what I said, I have also experienced break outs on my face and I think it triggered more because of too much sweets. Whenever I’m stressed I tend to eat a lot of sweets, or any types of junkfood and eating unhealthy food everyday has a bad side effects in your body like having pimples, low immune system, and also being cranky.
I experienced all of that for these past months and it’s definitely stressing me out more. Lol. I literally don’t know what to do. How do you guys deal with stress? I deal with it through eating and I think it’s a bad idea because I’m starting to gain weight. Lmao.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been really shy like REALLY shy, mind you, I’m not even exaggerating. I still remember when I was in kindergarten and our teacher would let us sing the alphabet song or any nursery rhymes and make us stand in front of the whole class and I would literally shake because I was too shy to sing, so I tend to cover my face using my hair while looking at my shoes. I also used to cry whenever my mom leaves for work after she sends me to school because I didn’t want to be left alone at school. Haha!
Even when I was already in college, I always look at the lobby first whether there are a lot of students and contemplate hard enough if I should pass by the lobby or just use the other staircase near the cashier’s office (but it would consume a lot of time) and if I don’t have a choice and I really need to pass by the lobby because it is the shortest route to my classroom then I would use my phone and fake text then walk like my ass was on fire because
Grilling is one of the most famous ways in cooking ones food here in the Philippines and as well as all over the world. Here in Davao we can almost see every corner of the street that sells grilled meat or barbeques. It was just a typical day that I had and I wanted to try something new so I decided to try out this place called Chixboy and I just also recently knew about this place through a friend.
The saying “Don’t judge the book by its cover” suits this restaurant well because as you can see the place outside where this restaurant is located, is just pretty simple but once you go inside then you can definitely see how lovely the place is.
As we went inside, I can’t help not to notice the interior of this place because I like how they designed it especially the chunks of wood on the
