Pan de Sal

Marami-rami na rin akong na subukan na  Pan-de-sal Recipe. Playgirl ako..hindi ako nag sti-stick to one. Pero itong to, na try ko na ng ilang beses at madaming check check sa gusto naming pan-de-sal.

Mahangin at medyo  sweet  ang gusto naming pandesal.

I click-click ang link na ito .

Konting tips:

Ayaw na ayaw ko na gumamit ng rapid rise yeast kasi madaming beses na akong binigo! Pina-paasa ako na mag gro-grow ang aming pagmamahalan pero ini-iwan ako sa ere at naging bato ang feelings namin  sa isa't-isa. Kaya Active Dry Yeast ang ginagamit ko, 1/2 water (40 secs sa microwave), 3 tsp yeast  or isang pakete ng yeast galing sa suking sari-sari store at 1 tsp sugar. Gustong gusto  ni yeast si Sugar, malakas ang chemistry nila.

Pag bumubula na si yeast at sugar sa pagmamahal, ilagay sa mixing bowl. Ilagay ang dry ingredients (in this order) na si flour, sugar, salt. Pagkatapos sina milk,  egg at oil.

Dapat room temperature ang  milk  at egg. Mina-microwave ko ang milk  ng 1 minute at yung egg pinapaliguan  ko  na ng running hot water (palagi kasing walang time  maghintay i room temp). Napapansin ko na pag si butter ang gagamitin  instead of  si Oil  nagiging flaky ang pandesal so ayaw ko na sa kanya kasi plastic sya.

Sa winter,  hirap magpa-alsa so nilalagay ko sya malapit sa under-cabinet lamp. Pwede ring ilagay sa pinaka top-rack  oven at sa ibaba may mainit na tubig.

Good luck at sana umusbong ang pag-iibigan nyo ni Pan de Sal.

TBD picture,  pina pa alsa ko pa,  di ko  alam  kung tama ba  ang pagkatimpla  ng aming pag  ibig.. abangan,,,,

Yesterday, I made two drafts as I think this blog is thirsty of my writing but ger demn it! I could not post nor even view my account because there was a freakin' error. So I gave up and emailed the drafts to myself in the hopes that maybe I will find my mojo to finish it up.

Good News! I am now on Chapter 13 out of 15 of my oh so boring certification book. I'm planning to finish the book tom. (Good Luck to me!).

Just this morning Georgia, Yiek and I went to Medical City, a mall-like hospital, you'd think you'd be shopping for doctors instead of going there for a check up. Georgia was worried that the mass (or mast?) at the back of her shoulders might be thrombosis (a blood clot), I on the other hand have to find another cure for my never ending kagid (lesions). Well, the good news is Georgia's throbbing vein is not a at all thrombosis but a benign tumor (85% that is) and she has to schedule a surgery within the next weeks/months/years. Good thing she's covered so the cost wouldn't be a burden. I joked that she should demand for a handsome doctor so she will get inspired to heal or maybe do the opposite so she can stay longer. I on the other hand, have a rare case of skin asthma (so that's why it keeps on coming back during extreme heat and dust). No perfume, colored soap and scented lotion for me then. huhuhu!

It's 12:30 here so I will just stop blabbing and post some pictures. It's been ages since I posted pictures of myself so I declare tonight as "I love myself" night err.. morning.
Chillin' out at starbucks

We decided to go to Tiendiesita's for curiosity's sake, it was near Medical City anyway. I spotted a dirty ice cream cart at the entrance and immediately wanted to get my hands on the delicious ice cream but I was too full at that time and promised myself to get back there on the way out. Whadya know? The freakin' ice cream was not there huhuhuhu!

I was ecstatic because I saw a dirty ice cream cart. All right, Georgia and I are normally at the same height. I am shorter here because i a m wearing beach slippers ok!

Looking at earrings which I cannot wear anyway.

The masked ladies.... planning to go to a masquerade ball to snag a handsome prince. But drat! I only got myself a frog that wouldn't turn itself into a prince no matter how many kisses I give him.

WE were enamored by this headband and took 30 minutes trying on the different colors. I got myself matching slippers too!

See? we really love our new head gears. We look cool ya know?

beautiful birds flock together.

Mr Pesky and Ms Beyutipul. The only picture of us out of 400 nonsense pix

The paparazzi snapping up pictures of his dream girl

the headband looks really cute on me!(felingera)

Yiek just loves snapping pictures of me while I'm sipping something. Maybe there is a secret message that I have to decode.

Ok, I think I AM having a me overdose. I am off to sleep ta ta!

Toilet Humor

Originally posted on   

Just this morning, I felt the urge to... you know relieve myself (kalibangon in bisaya).

So ala article ni. Obvious ba na wala akong ginagawa hehehe.


Ever had the urge to relieve yourself during office hours? I, for one would definitely hate doing this but if nature really calls then here are some steps to do the dreaded thing.

1. Pretend that you are going somewhere far i.e. like going to the farthest copier or going to the pantry to wash your mug.
2. Make sure that only a few know the existence of the toilet you’ll be using. The best places are usually those farthest away from your office or cubicle; at least you don’t know or are not close to the people there.
3. Go to the farthest toilet cubicle.
4. Make sure that the cubicle has a lot of tissue or you brought tissue with you. To be sure, just bring your mug. I still think that water is the best “dirt” cleaner.
5. If you are bringing a mug, fill it up with water
6. Sit down and do your thing.
7. If someone enters, smell the odor emanating from the bowl. Flush if the smell is quite obvious.
8. Continue doing the deed.
9. Wait until the CR is empty
10. If it’s not possible and you are using “the mug”, wait for the person to use the drier then wash your ass. Of course, using the tissue would be easier as you are worry-free about the sound of the water hitting the bowl.
11. Flush not once but thrice.
12. If you have perfume, spray a little.
13. Get out of the cube and pretend that nothing happened.
14. Wash your hands
15. and then go back to your work place.
16. If someone looks at you suspiciously, pretend that you did not see him or her.
17. Don’t forget to bring notes from the make-believe meeting or copies from the copier.
