To Maintain A Healthy Level Of Insanity

This is an email from a friend. Some are so silly they made me laugh.
  • At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.
  • Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice!
  • Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.
  • Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
  • In the memo field of all your checks, write 'For Marijuana'
  • Finish all your sentences with 'In Accordance With The Prophecy.'
  • Skip down the hall rather than walk and see how many looks you get.
  • Order a diet water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.
  • Specify that your drive-through order is 'To Go.'
  • Sing along at the Opera.
  • Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day.
  • Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you have a headache.
  • When the money comes out the ATM, scream 'I Won! I Won!'
  • When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling 'Run For Your Lives! They're Loose!'
  • Tell your children over dinner, 'Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go.'

10 Things That Made Me Happy On My Birthday

  1. The beautiful and loving family I am blessed to have in my life.
  2. The sweet birthday kiss I received from my little girl.
  3. The fabulous weather. The sky was so unbelievably blue!
  4. The gotto and crunchy tokwa't baboy I devoured for breakfast. Delish!
  5. The first lotto ticket I'd ever bought. It would be more fun if I won the lottery though.
  6. The big bunch of flowers from A. They were so beautiful.
  7. The dinner date at Le Souffle Rockwell with A. Great ambience and great food. A loved the succulent rib-eye steak and the Ciabatta bread and the grilled chicken and dessert I had were superb. The only thing that ruined the moment was the little roach roaming around our table. Thank God the roach decided to stroll before the first course was served or else I'll freak out. They had us of course moved to another table.
  8. The steaming cup of Morrocan mint tea after the heavy supper.
  9. The amazing feeling of being surrounded by books. We had a Fully Booked trip after the dinner. I was tempted to buy Sherry Argov's "Why Men Marry Bitches?". Not that I'm a bitch or anything. Well, okay define bitch. Hehe.
  10. The late night movie to cap it all off. We watched "Tropic Thunder" which is by far one of the funniest movies I had ever seen. I swear I had no clue it was Tom Cruise!

My First Rubik's Cube Solve

My first attempt to solve a Rubik's cube and I couldn't be happier. I am no genius OK? I followed the algorithms correctly to put them back together. And it took me an hour or so to figure everything out. Back then I can only make one side and wouldn't bother attempting the rest of the cube. Now, A and I are hooked. He even bought his own cube so we can work together or compete. We also bought Hamy her own toy cube so she won't mess with ours. Now, I'm trying my best to memorize the algorithms so I can put them into use without the cheat sheet.

Why don't you try it? Boost your brain power with Rubik's cube exercise. I warn you it can get a little addictive.

Begin the hours of this day slow.

Reese's Peanut Butter Doughnuts from Krispy Kreme
Assorted Flavor - P335/dozen, P38/each

Original Glaze - P265/dozen, P30/each

1 dozen Assorted, 1 dozen Original - P550

Krispy Kreme now has Peanut Butter doughnuts made with Reese's! Available in three variants:
  1. Peanut Butter & Kreme - an irresistible Reese's peanut butter mixed with creamy vanilla icing on a Krispy Kreme doughnut.
  2. Peanut Butter & Chocolate - a perfect combination of Reese's peanut butter, vanilla and rich chocolate on a Krispy Kreme doughnut
  3. Pieces & Kreme - a chocolate iced Krispy Kreme doughnut topped with crunchy Hershey's Reese's peanut butter candies drizzled with creamy caramel

Curious as to what they would taste like, we dropped by at the nearest KK store in Serendra and bought all three variants. They looked so good I gobbled them up as soon as the box was opened. The verdict? Sadly, none of them tasted like Reese's. Although the doughnuts were delicious the flavor was missing that rich peanut butter chocolatey goodness of Reese's PB Cups. Oh well, at least they didn't taste blah. Taste it for yourself!

WS: Raindrops

The photo was taken on a rainy Friday morning. Hamy stretched her leg out the window to feel the raindrops on her toes. Priceless moment!

My Birthday Wish List

Just random things I would love to have.

Nikon D40x. A beginner's DLSR. Not too pricey and easy to use. *My dearest A will get this for me. Yay!*

Lumix LX3. A 10.1 megapixel point-and-shoot camera with interchangeable lens. How cool is that?

MacBook Air. Who wouldn't want the world's thinnest notebook?

Belkin CushTop or any brand of comfortable lap desk. I need one badly. I am tempted to use a bed tray right now or DYI my own stand.

Wireless Mighty Mouse. Not than I'm an expert or anything but I find it hard to edit images using the trackpad.

Montorguiel GM. Simple, stylish but not overly expensive. Yeah, sure.

Any great books on parenting, housekeeping, cooking and Origami or any good books/novels period.

So there.

* All other images are from Amazon.
