Dearest Jill — An open letter to Jill Robredo and colleagues in media

You are only 13,  and I feel terrible how people seem to keep forgetting this fact when they speculate and report about the events surrounding the plane crash. When they show photographs of you and your sisters with your faces buried in your hands, when they upload photographs of you sobbing into the arms of your classmates and teachers who have come to bring you comfort. These visuals do not help at all and only show a lack of respect for your private pain.

Once in a while, we perform the traditional notion of romance. #date #romance #gamerchef #ninyo Sunshine in the rain, late valentine's cake. I'm craving this again. #gamerchef #mocha #cake #sweets #dessert #gamerchef made me feel better by cooking chicken and bacon burger. Her served it with prata and salad greens with more bacon! That's good dinner. #dinner #chicken #burger Been experimenting on Jaime Oliver's yorkshire pudding recipe. Though I'm pretty sure the English wouldn't add cheese to it, I did and I liked it. Its probably why it didn't rise this time. Its basically 1 egg, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour, 1 tsp salt mixed like crazy together. Then in a muffin tin, put olive oil before pouring in the mix. Takes 15-20 mins in a 200 deg oven. The batter is also good for pancakes! #pudding #bread #breakfast #recipe Simple pasta in cream sauce for a stay-at-home Friday night. #pasta #dinner #food First Japanese curry I cooked by myself. I don't have the proportions perfect yet, but I love it! This version has beef, potatoes, and button mushrooms, because that's what I found in my stock. I used black mountain rice because I enjoy its texture and flavor, the more common rice served with this dish is Japanese white rice. #curry #homecooked #lunch #food
