    gosh, miss portia.. read this:http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/egyptarchaeologyculture..

    says that the pharaohs’ tomb could disappear.

    well, i know that this is not new.. but wala lang.. i just feel so much for them.. just like the parthenon.. we will lose it without even fully understanding their culture.. and besides you said it yourself and we all know that it’s gonna be hard to replace it or make a new one.. and it has its own significance.. i hope our technology can save these precious. i hope we can find ways to save it..

    @ecai i read it. i am sure there is a technology out there that can prevent that. but. i think what they need to do is limit the exposure. i remember this chinese painting, “6 persimons-, to preserve it, it is only taken out once every ten years for public viewing. it is a very simple painting, monochromatic. it is just that it refrlects the absolute description of chinese asthetics. so there is a way, always a way.

    @mina yun nga eh, i need a line. the problem is my lifestyle. masyadong mobile. i keep on moving from place to place… and that really isnt good if youhave a line. some places are not good for some lines… hay i wonder… when my feet are firmly on the ground perhaps i’ll then get a line. till then–suffer!

    @pauline ngayon lang ako nag-online ulet. how was the exams? sana okay ang nangyari seo… :)

    @jean camille i’m glad nadalian ka. 1 section palang na-check ko. and it appears may bumaagsak parin. well, problema na ng tamad yun, coz i think the exam was really easy…

    hope to hear from most of you soon! :)

Trial run of food delivery service. Food was quite good. Delivery was a bit late but I can't exactly blame the rider today. Sooo... Here's to more good and healthy meals. (Disclaimer: I'm not trying to lose weight. I just want healthy food. Also, my schedule is crazy this sem so this might help me get a handle on things.) @gourmadeph #food #foodie Awesome handcrafted ice cream shop. We tried double jeopardy (mix of chocolate and coffee ice cream) and tarragon ice cream on ice cream nest. Everything for P100 (a little over $2). Double Jeopardy was rich while the Tarragon was refreshing. The chocolate ice cream was made with batangas and davao tablea (cocoa) while the coffee ice cream was made with batangas barako coffee. Ice cream is best when its made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The ice cream nest is nice, rice krispe treats biund together by marshmallow mix. Loved it! #icecream #gamerchef #local When you live alone, sometimes you live on leftovers. But leftovers can be turned into great dishes, such as a mixed rice dish. I basically sautéed a chopped head of garlic on extra virgin olive oil. When brown, I tossed in leftover chopped sausages and leftover corn and cheese frittata. I added lots of herbs--rosemary, thyme, and basil. Sprinkled some salt and pepper to taste, added a but more corn. Then I mixed in leftover brown rice. I also sprinkled some cayenne pepper after cooking for a little bit of spice. Voila! A meal for this stormy holiday weekend. #lunch #cooking #recipe #leftover Yes, I am childish like this. I get excited with the prospect of trying out a chocolate bar for the first time. The fruity berry smell as I unwrap it, the crunch and sweetness as I bite into it. The simplest of things can be so poignant. (Royce really is a must-try--nama, truffle, plain chocolates... Lovely.) #chocolate #musings #dessert We moved the plant near the window for some sunshine as well. Any tips or advice? The stems and leaves are all over the place. We removed the stems that looked dead and the yellowed leaves. After a few weeks it looks a little taller with new leaves. But we don't know what more we can do. #office #plant Signs of renewed life and growth in the office plant. Please help me with some plant-growing techniques. So far, its been watering, keeping it company, playing music, and singing. We hope for more life in the office plant. #plant #life #office
