Mini Food Processor
Jan 24th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I’ve been wanting to buy this really cute and yet I know is going to be very useful to me kitchen gadget, a Cuisinart Mini Food processor. I always need a whole lot chopped garlic and onions and even tomatoes. I found one specific model which is just right for this purpose and it’s small enough that I can use it everyday and I can store it close to the sandwich maker. And another good thing? It’s only worth USD39!

But then I live in the Philippines. And I had very bad experiences with Johnny Air so no I will not give them another business ever again and I would hate to give myself unnecessary stress. I always checked the truck tracking and it’s been on time. So I know that it is in this company where the problem lies.

Hmmmn what to do?

Proud to be a Hanson Fan!
Jan 21st, 2012 by niceyfemme

And has been for the last 15 years.

A 12 year old 6th grader I was. Fell in love with these girly looking boys (blame their long hair) but really it is their music that swept me off of my feet but it doesn’t hurt that they’re so good looking and charming and funny.

(Just some of my Hanson stuff as some are stored in a very big box as I need more space in my room.)

I remember to always buy their cd’s in multiple numbers to have myself some back up if ever something happens to the first one I’m using, their albums are that important to me. I cannot even imagine myself not listening to their Middle of Nowhere cd. It is always in my Sony discman and I wouldn’t leave home without it. I listen to their beautiful voice from the moment I wake up and just before I sleep. MTV was always on because their video might come up and I’d go crazy if I miss it. Just seeing them made me giddy with happiness.

Obsessing over them didn’t stop there. I even bought those imported magazines especially if they’re in the cover spending 6th grader allowance on them. And they’re not cheap! One magazine cost Php 300! And sometimes even more expensive and that was on year 1997-1998. But I didn’t mind as  I loved reading anything about them. I know their favorite food, hobbies and so on. That made me feel like I knew them personally and somehow there’s a connection between us even though in reality they might not be sure that they have a Filipino fan as crazy as I was back then.

The walls of my rooms was full of their posters. My whole clan knows how crazy I was for them and they gave me gifts Hanson related. Oh and I even joined a Channel V contest that would bring the winner to Hong Kong to watch their concert and meet them. Man, I sent too many entries. I didn’t win the grand prize but they sent me some Hanson thingies including their cd. I love that point in my life, I was floating, high with Hanson. ♥

Of course life brings sadness as well. Their music helped me go through it. When no one understood, they did, through their music. There was a time in my life when I can’t fit in, ‘Weird’ was the song of my life then. Then ‘I Will Come To you’ was next.

Then year 2003 came. I was in the school’s library/internet area. I read that Taylor got married. That crushed me. Tears fell down my cheeks and I was unconscious about it. It was only when my friend asked why I was crying that brought me back to reality.

Then year 2004 Hanson finally came to the Philippines for a concert, the event I was waiting for since 1997. BUT I wasn’t able to go. That really got to me and years has passed I still have that regret of not seeing Taylor in person. I wondered if they’re ever going back. Then last November I read that they’re coming here!!! I was so happy and started to talk about it in Facebook. BUT. I still wasn’t sure if I can come. My predicament then was that March is way too far ahead for me to be sure that I am in the Philippines by then. So I didn’t buy then. Come January, and after thinking about it a lot of times, I gave in. I’d make a way to be here by March. I NEED TO SEE TAYLOR IN PERSON. That’s my lifelong dream haha. Really. I have wished for that to happen so many times before and now there’s this chance of it happening and I won’t let it pass me again.

I finally have my ticket! Yey! Taylor, Ike and Zac I’ll be seeing you! Can’t wait for March.

Now everyone who call themselves Hanson fans need to show support by going to their concert and not just blab about being one and not do anything. Come and enjoy with fellow Hanson fans. Let’s enjoy their music together. Who knows when they’re coming back here so don’t let the chance pass you by. Buy your tickets now. 🙂

 

 

 

 

How and where to begin?
Jan 17th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I’ve been really bad to this blog. I haven’t updated in a long time and it’s not because I don’t have things to share, in fact I have A LOT to update in here but I just can’t find the will to do so. Hmmmn. I need to update for new recipes and photos I have accumulated over the last months and even organizing them in my hard drive is taking forever. I don’t have the energy and will. I need GNC coupons so I could stack on lots of vitamins, it’s what keeping me going these past months where I am so tired with all the activities.

As of this moment as I’m writing this, I need to do the laundry and I just can’t begin. Maybe it’s because I’m missing Bee as he went back to Singapore already. It’s alright because in two weeks I’m going there to. 🙂

Grab Opportunities When You Can
Jan 13th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Is something I believe in and what I preached Bee. Now a great opportunity has come knocking and I encourage him to take it. I know it’s a new challenge but it will be something that will sky rocket his career. New people to work with, new rules, new environment. If he decides to go for it then I will support him all the way. If he wants to stay put where he is now is fine with me as well. If someone approaches me and offer me a job like say Executive Chef jobs then I’ll grab it. It will not be waiting for me everyday and I don’t want to regret anything either.

Ensaladang Talong
Jan 5th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I am a person passionate over food, even more for simple foods like eggs and eggplant. I love eggplant! Whether it’s fried or grilled, I’d take it anytime over fried chicken and pizza.

So it’s no wonder I also like other variations of it.

Ensaladang talong is one of those dishes that excites me.

Crazy for Shawarma!
Jan 4th, 2012 by niceyfemme

The past 3 months has all been about shawarma for me. Before that I know what shawarma is, that it consists if minced meat (can be beef, lamb, chicken, fish) and veggies but I never paid attention to it. Early November I was really busy and I resorted to fast food to eat but is totally sick and tired of the usual fare you would find in the malls, always fried chicken and pizza. So a shawarma stall caught my eye. I bought a large one to taste it and my initial reaction was, hmmmn ok.. that’s new.

Then I started feeling this crazy urge to try different shawarmas. I had a fancy shawarma from a fancy restaurant delivered in Mommy’s office once (again to try it) and was disappointed. I don’t like the more authentic tasting shawarma but prefers the localized version which only costs a fraction. I’d take that anytime.

So I have tasted Turk’s Shawarma, Babba Shawarma which can be found in any SM Supermarket food stalls, Chummie Shawarma in Festival Mall, Uncle Moe’s and two in SM Pampanga, Passport foods (which isn’t my type) and Jetnor’s Shawarma in SM food court. I like Jetnor’s the best and it has that something that makes you addicted to it! Too bad it’s too far from Cavite huhuhuhu Photobucket I can’t have it anytime I want. This seriously makes me a bit sad. Oh and I have to try Jacob’s Shawarma which they say (over the net) is the most authentic shawarma in the Philippines but I’m not really that interested as I like the localized version better. But let’s see, it doesn’t hurt to try.

Small is worth Php40 and large is Php50.  It’s beef with cucumber, tomatoes and onions with garlic sauce, cheese sauce and the chili. And the guy preparing your shawarma si kind of nice too. 🙂 I’ll try to take more pictures of it once I get my hands on it again. Whew just thinking about it makes me salivate. Haha I am officially crazy over Jetnor’s and I can tell everyone around me is getting tired of hearing me talk about it all the time!

During the holidays with all the food available to us to munch on, it’s only shawarma I wanted. Constant craving so bad I’ve always invented reasons to drop by there. One time I brought my niece Mae and had her taste it. Guess what, she liked it so much she’s as crazy fro it now as I am! She even bought two for herself. Am I a proud aunt or what? Hahaha too much influencing going on then.

Now that Bee is here and because he’s a Kapampangan, we’re always going there to spend time with his folks and I have to be honest here, first thing we’ll do right after we pass through San Fernando exit of NLEX in to get myself two large shawarmas! When is this phase going to end? I’m tired of thinking of it when I am too far away and other shawarmas just won’t do it for me.

I really am interested in making shawarma myself. I need a good recipe that taste like it. Where on earth?!

By the way, Happy New Year to everyone!
