Quote of the Day

Let me ask you this, I live in New York City. Eight million people in the city. And only thing that separates us is chance. Do you think anyone of them can walk in to your life and change it, forever.    
                                                                                    --- Carlos played by Jay Hernandez 
                                                                                         Six Degrees (ABC)

Oh my...

I was talking to my mom in England over the phone when I spurted out the words:

Happiness is having a good paying job, getting a husband and starting a family.

What am I saying?

Time Capsule

Since my recent travels to Sta Cruz Laguna had given me tons of church-related footages, I sent two of my best photos to Yahoo's ongoing Time Capsule contributions. Fortunately, both of my pictures were chosen to be shown on the site. Lucky me! The first photo is an altar, the second one is a stained glass panel.

Click on the thumbnails to see the images.

What a mess!

Since I'm soo bored this sem break, I tried to cook lunch today.

At the back is my kasambahay assisting me with my latest creation, Mushroom Soup with Carrots and Corn. The finished product turned out to be delicious.

Mini Buko Pies

I accidentally discovered this delicious pastry during my recent travels in Laguna. 


The custardy buko (young coconut meat) filling is creamy and the pie crust is flaky. I bought an entire box. The Mini Buko Pie tastes better than each slice of the normal buko pie because the flavor of the smaller version is more concentrated. The size of each pie could be compared to a closed fist. The normal sized buko pie is now obsolete. It is available at the roadside stalls along the major highway after Los Banos Laguna.

Stolen from a Hallmark Card

You are and always will be 
the most amazing person 
who ever smiled into my eyes. 
Every morning, 
your smile give me the courage to take on the day... 

Your smile gives me a feeling 
of calm reassurance every night. 
So on this day devoted to our love, 
I'm counting the everyday reasons 
you've given me to know that my life is good. 
Very Good. 
In the circle of your arms, 
I feel strong and hopeful.

Time moves on, 
and the world changes around us, 
sometimes faster than we can keep up with it... 
And through it all, 
I know 
I'll be depending on upon your smile, 
loving you more than I can say, 
hoping you'll always be mine. 

Happy Anniversary.

Just in the time of nick

Fortunately, my tita's house in the same village already had electricity when I got back home. By the time I arrived at my house, power was not yet available so I called my Tita up to tell kuya Al to fetch me so that I could bring my PC back to civilization. Finally, by 11pm yesterday, I was able to render, edit and post-produce a music video for Pol Sci class the following day, err, in a few hours. The video turned out great, with accurately timed lip sync of the characters. The beat of the song also matches the dance movements of the raw footage. Im going to upload it soon, but only until the phone lines are back up.

It was a great show indeed, the video even includes the out takes clip.
