30 Day Challenge: iMusic

Day 14. Recommend 5 songs.

Hmmm.. What to recommend? Most of the songs nowadays are about sex or want to get laid with a lot of rapping and only a few minutes of real singing.

Anyway, let’s see..

1. The Scientist by Coldplay. Nothing special really. It’s the first song that played while listening to my iPhone.

2. Titanium by David Guetta feat. Sia. This. It’s my current favorite and best describes my situation. The lyrics are amazing and I love it!

3. Nothing by The Script. Great song for the heartbroken. I also like the lyrics.

4. I’m Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO. Haha! The music video is funny and quite disturbing altogether.

5. Darling I Do. I first heard the song in the movie Shrek Forever After. I fell in love with the song instantly. Very good vocals and the lyrics are just romantic.

30 Day Challenge: Men Who Hates Women

Day 13. Last book you read.

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest. I can’t believe I finished the trilogy within 2 weeks. Normally, when I’m into the story of the book, I usually finish the book within a day or two. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the books! Very refreshing from my usual. I’m also looking forward to the 2nd and 3rd movies. According to Wikipedia, those two movies will be released on 2013 and 2015 respectively.

The Hollywood version of the first installment, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was awesome!! It’s also my favorite among the three. =)

How To Cook Yema

Yema is very popular here in the Philippines. It’s basically made up of egg yolk and condensed milk. You can also add some chopped nuts if you like. But for me, those two are just fine. I actually bought a bag of Manolito’s Yema last week, which I finished within 4 hours. Yes, I’m that addicted to it. Children and adults enjoy this sweet Filipino dessert.

Here’s what I found from the internet about how to cook or make yema.

Ingredients:

2 cans of condensed milk
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon of melted butter
3 tablespoons of chopped nuts

Procedure:

1) In a bowl, beat the condensed milk and egg yolks until creamy.
2) Allow the butter to melt in a non-sticky sauce pan.
3) Put the heat to medium and stir-in the cream and chopped nuts. Continue stirring to avoid the cream from burning. Do this until the mixture is sticky enough to be molded (around 25 minutes).
4) Remove from heat and let the mixture to cool down.
5) Transfer to a serving dish.

As for the shaping, it’s your choice. Here in the Philippines, yemas are usually shaped in balls or sometimes triangular.

Adorable You!

This is Pitchie’s recent picture.

Isn’t she cute? she may not be the cutest & adorable dog out there, but she’s one hell of a pet. :] I love the fact that she fully understands the words, “up” (meaning to go up in my room), “down” (to go down from the bed or down in the living room), “inside”, “sit”, “stay” and “come”. Pretty much the basics but I’m still a proud mommy. :]

You Gotta Love The Boots!

I’ve always wanted to own a pair of ankle boots. But as you know, wearing boots in a tropical country is not advisable, except of course if the weather calls for it. Other than that, you have to possess a 100% confidence to wear one. Anyway, I couldn’t help but admire this gorgeous ankle boots I found over over the web.

Isn’t she beautiful? I love it!!

30 Day Challenge: Grateful For Them

Day 12. Do you have siblings? Talk about them or talk about what it’s like to be an only child.

I do, actually. But before that, I really thought I’ll be an only child since my brother came after 8 years. And then 2 years after my brother was born, came my sister. I guess my parents decided to have not one, but two more. They must have thought I’m really lonely and decided I need some company. Well, I’m glad they did.

For one thing, I’m glad because God has a purpose for everything. If you don’t believe in Him, it’s not my problem. I’m currently in a state where I needed most my siblings. And I thank Him for bringing my siblings to my life. Unlike other siblings out there, the three of us have this bond where we made it sure that we will never be like them (ahem ;]), we’re close that we share secrets to each other and back up each other when one is in need of help.

I’m not embarrassed to tell here that I love them. I just hope they won’t read this particular entry. Haha! :]

What do you guys think? I think Leon is hot and will forever be. Teehee.

30 Day Challenge: Poor Eyesight

Day 8. Do you wear glasses? if so, what are they for?

As a matter of fact, I do. My mom bought one for me for my hobby which is reading. :] Ever since I started reading books on my phone and on my netbook, my eyesight got worst. I told my mom about it and she immediately purchased this pink reading glasses for me. How sweet. I wasn’t actually asking for it, but she still gave it to me. :] Loveyou, mom.
