Medyo matagal tagal na rin akong di nakakasali sa lingguhang palahok, susubukin ko nang makibahagi uli linggo linggo. Pero sa Disyembre na pala ulit magbabalik ang LP? Hay, Maghihitay ako :-)

12 hours: half a day: one whole paid day

We finally had our thumbs stained with the blue ink by exactly 10 minutes past 7 pm. With 2 phones battery drained, a red nose due to the vitamin d supply from the sun, a super dirty pair of jeans from sitting on gutters to dirty stair steps, I could only say thanks for a very eventful day. Let me enumerate the reasons:



1. The main objective of registering was actually met.

2. I got to absorb a bit of the morning sun

3. Finally got to eat at the Kenji Tei Ramen House along president's ave

4. Discovered a possible printer for my brother's wedding invites, also along president's ave

5. Finally got to check out and try Perk's coffee, also along president's ave

6. I got to spend a whole day with my husband.

7. After weeks and days of coming home late, we finally got to eat dinner together, with both kids sitting and enjoying the fried chicken wings. :-)



If I would focus on the exhaustion I felt during the whole day's event, I would complain and complain about the whole ordeal, but on the brighter side, there were other happier and more fulfilling side events, which maybe, I can focus on and just transform as THE MAiN EVENTs. Ü .

9 hours later...

Nine hours later and still waiting. I'd like to think this hell of a day is all worth the wait. New set of elected officials better do what they're suppose to do.

Its my first time to vote ever, yes I missed 5 elections already and somehow, I just enjoy those election holidays without really caring for what the elected politicians do. I did not vote anyway. But now, I fully understand why the masa reacts the way they do upon hearing corruptions and other panlolokos that these "powerful" people do. And since I decided to be that good citizen and practice my right to vote for the 2010 election, and I had to sacrifice a day under the sun, then maybe, I can finally say, I have a "say".

On being responsible citizens

In the interest of being a good citizen and the want to practice our right to vote, me and the husband woke up early and headed to register for the election. 2 hours later, we are still here, under the scorching hot sun, together with hundreds others who actually believe one vote can make a difference. I'd like to think this chaos is because everyone else here are crammers like us but really, there should have been a system in place.

Getting the form from the fourth floor while the long accumulating line is outside the municipal hall complex is not anything like a system to me. But let's see.

On hour no. 2, the line is barely moving. I wonder if we should sleep over or something.

Then again, the bright side is having another government issued ID card. And we had to scorched ourselves for it. Honestly though, I like the heat. I wish I wore a 2-pc or something to maximize on the vitamin d from the morning sun. :-)

Best Chocolate Cake

This, my friends, maybe one of the best chocolate cake I have tasted so far! Karen's Kitchen's Choco Ganache.

The 8-inch round cake is at 700 pesos. They don't do deliveries and you have to order in advance and pick it up. But Its all worth the trouble.

One cake down, 2 more to go! I'm on a mission to find the best metro manila cake for choco, carrot, and mango. Any bets?

Tee up!

Have you guys tried this? Its so small and light you would feel like taking and chewing on flavored air :-) but I like it. At 9.50 pesos a box, its not so bad. Especially after a very heavy and flavorful meal. Takes away those unwanted after tastes....

Dont Ask me to kiss you cause I will


I had the privilege of attending the opening night of the Spanish Film fest of Instituto Cervantes de Manila. The opening night featured a comedy film titled "No me pidas que te bese porque te besaré" in English "Don't ask me to kiss you, cause I will"


The story revolves around Albert, who's about to get married in 5 days. He feels like his life is incomplete and thinks it maybe because he's not ready to get married. Read the summary here.

Personally, I found the movie very entertaining. I was laughing almost the whole time. The movie felt light but there was depth.

A bit of trivia, for those who will watch this movie, One of the characters is also the director of the movie.

Schedule of the film showing here.
