It’s de-lurking today at Wifely Steps. If you’re reading this entry, you are obliged to reveal yourself! Yeah! C’mon, this is just a game. Let’s have a little fun. I’d like to get to know the folks who are reading this blog at this very moment.
All you have to do is wave hello and tell me who you are. It’d be great if you told me a little bit more about yourself too. That’s ultra fine with me. I love a good conversation. Anything but spam is welcome.
So… hello there! Caught you looking! May I know who you are?
Meal or No Meal is an interesting twist to the game Deal or No Deal. In this cute game, you are a diner at Chez Andre. The first step is to pick a serving tray. Then, select six trays that will be revealed to you one at a time. The Chef will then ring his dinner bell and make you an offer, its value depending on what trays are left in the game. If you take his offer (a $10,000 Bunny Cake perhaps?), you lose the original serving tray you picked (which could have held a $1,000,000 or a $10 meal). Or you could stick to your chosen tray, pick five items that will be revealed to you one by one, and so on. The Chef’s offers will be hard to resist at times.
I know you know the answers! More Sweet Valley stuff.
1. What was Bruce Patman’s license plate number?
2. Who was the editor-in-chief of “The Oracle”?
3. How did Sam Woodruff die?
4. When did Jessica and Todd date each other?
5. Was Tom McKay gay?
6. What was the name of Mr. Wakefield’s co-worker, who the twins thought was having an affair with their father?
7. Name one Unicorn who was in the seventh grade.
8. Who was Alice Wakefield engaged to before marrying Ned?
9. How did Elizabeth let Jessica end up as the lead ballerina in the book “Teacher’s Pet?”
10. Who was Jessica’s first kiss?
They had wavy blonde hair, blue green eyes and sun-kissed smooth skin. They were 5’6″ tall and had trim bodies. They drove a Fiat in the earlier books, then a purple jeep in the later ones. One twin usually had her hair in a ponytail, the other would let her hair loose. One was active in her school paper, the other in her cheerleading squad. They were as different as night and day, but they shared a bond much stronger than any friendship. Well, at least that’s what I got from all the stories I read about them. They were the Wakefield Twins — Elizabeth and Jessica. And when I was younger, I wanted to be just like them.
I don’t talk about work on this blog because work is work. This blog is therapy for me. Work is not therapy. BUT that doesn’t mean I don’t like what I do. People close to me know that I love what I do for a living.
One of my favorite family desserts is Agar Flan. Just like my Grandma’s Leche Flan, this dessert is a staple during family gatherings. While it has been a long time since my grandma prepared this sweet dessert, my younger sister P has perfected the recipe.
It’s important to use gulaman bars when you prepare this! Those powdered gelatin mixes won’t give you the same results. You can mix in some fruits when the gelatin has slightly set, but I prefer it this way — rich and creamy with shredded buko. Mmmmm.
I applied for a writing gig at Metroblogging
and filled one of the slots! Yehey! *passes free MRT tickets to everyone (hee hee)* Metroblogging is a network of city-specific blogs — each blog talks about what’s going on in their city. Want to know what’s going on in Miami? They’ve got a blog. How about Vienna? Yep, they’ve got one too. I’m one of the writers for the Manila
blog and it’s time for me to keep those eyes and ears more alert.
Dirty deliciousness! Not very long ago, my friends (Bok, Pie and Diane) and I hung out at U.P. and well, pigged out a little bit. While we walked around the campus, we stopped every now and then to eat a couple of sticks of isaw, gizzard, barbecue and fish balls. Yum. Our last stop was dessert and what better choice could we make than dirty ice cream!
Manong had three flavors that day: chocolate, avocado and cheese. One cone costs P10 (about US$0.20?). If you opt for the fancier cone though (I think it was a waffle cone), it can cost you P20. What I love about dirty ice cream is that it’s not very creamy, but it has a smooth milky consistency. It’s not very rich but still flavorful.
Got this one from dear Abby. Highlight the ones you’ve done. Enjoy!

It’s a breezy afternoon. Upon waking up from your nap, you find yourself before this stone path. You decide to follow it.
(1) What do you hope to find at the end of this path?
(2) What do you think you will find at the end of this path?
It would be great to wake up to such lush greenery every morning.
But if you add even more trees and rocks, this can look like the set of LOST. That’s fine with me as long as I’ve got Josh Holloway as my beach buddy.
Le’ts take a break from all those food posts. As Jher said, baka lumaki na akong parang Super Ferry. Korek! Hindi po ako matakaw… mahilig lang pong kumain! So let’s park our talk of food and let me share one of my favorite websites.
The Daily Puppy. A cute puppy a day keeps negativity away. You don’t believe me? Check out their site and tell me if you don’t “oooooh” or “awwwwww” at least once. The site posts one cute puppy picture per day. You can leave comments, rate the pictures and send in your own cute puppy pictures.
My family and I had dinner at Heaven n Eggs last weekend. This restaurant serves breakfast fare like pancakes, sausages, tapa and rice, all day, all night. It’s a place that has adopted an angelic feel — there are cotton candy clouds painted on sky blue walls, the furniture is white, there are swings with vines (well, plastic ones) crawling up the chains, there are angel figurines hanging from the ceiling and the waitresses wear halos and angel wings.
Sounds promising, right? Sadly, its heavenly feel stops there.
