The Last Snow of the Year

 

Apparently, this will be the last snow of the year (and the most we’ve had). Although I hate taking my car when it’s snowing and I’m constantly stressed about black ice, it’s kinda sad to think of how little snow we have nowadays. I can’t help but think that by the time Baby Girl will be an adult, there might be a possibility of no snow. That, sadly, it will become a thing of the past.

Birchbox – Amour etc … – Février 2019

 

Ahhh l’amour ..that feeling that makes the world go round. Uhm … really?

I know the month of February is all about love, especially because of Valentine’s day. But to me, Valentine’s is just like any other day. A good friend of mine says I feel this way because I’ve been in a good and healthy relationship for so long. I warned her that she might be turning a little bit cynical.

Cooking Asian Dishes

 

The month of January was supposed to be a wonderful month (before I got ill). Earlier in the month, I had challenged myself to try to cook and prepare Asian dishes Filipino-Style for every meal, or at least for dinner. What does Filipino-style mean you might ask? If you ever have the opportunity with Filipinos, you will quickly notice that a Filipino meal consists of not 1 but 2 (and even 3 or more) different dishes! The challenge is to mix and match the flavors. I know what you will say next – isn’t 3 dishes a bit too much? Yes, of course! The idea is not to force yourself and finish everything. Whatever is left will be eaten the next meal, which means that if there’s a lot of leftovers, you will only need to cook 1 dish. One important thing to remember about Filipinos is to never throw away food. In a country with a high poverty rate, every single piece of meat or fish is important! Even leftover rice will be turned to garlic fried rice or Cantonese fried rice.

Prescription Lab Janvier 2019

 

Ughh! I’m afraid I might be coming down with something. Baby Girl was a bit ill these past few days and I’ve been taking care of her. Every time she’s ill, I silently pray that she gets better quickly and let me get ill instead. An exchange of hostage / prisoner of some sort. Problem is, it works each and every single time. So today, she’s running around and feeling fine and I’m starting to feel like crap.

Thankfully, one good thing did happen today. My Prescription Lab package arrived!
