No blog updates for almost 2 months.

OMG!  My last post was on August 14, 2011 and that was the only post I did for August.  September is zero, no blog updates at all.  

When I started this blog, all I wanted is to have 365 blogs for the year 2011.  I guess, I already failed that.  But I hope its not too late.

August 2011 was a memorable month.  I'm not going to elaborate on this further, but I would say, I love what had happened and what is happening now.  August was also my nephew and Dad's birth month.  I miss them both and I miss my family.

September 2011 was also memorable and full of positiveness.  It is my birth month and 2 of my other siblings.  This was also the month that I realize that I was surrounded by good people/friends.  Thank you God.

October 2011 another month that my family and I celebrates too much of birthdays and festivities.  I wish I was home to celebrate it with them.  I also have a bad experience for this month, but I will not elaborate on that more, as I am looking forward for more positiv…

blah blah blah of the day

i've been thinking what to publish today.  then, i got a chance to sneak peak my previous post and they were mostly my personal blatherings and the food experiments.  i think, it's time to copy and paste the previous post i have in my old blog (  and the first thing to post is something that is informative.  why am i copying it?  i am thinking of removing the old blog and transferring it to this site.  i want to incorporate everything and anything that interest me into one location, and this is the right place.

i got to think as well, that maybe the reason why I dont get a call from employers was because this blog talks about personal stuff.  oh well, this is a personal blog, which incorporates all the things i like and i love.  as you can read in the sub-title of the page, it is all about me and my tiny world.

"geek, nerd, occasional photographer, rockstar wanna-be, food devotee, and serial tinkerer.  loves to blog and not a writer."

You're in love, That's the way It should be, 'Cause I want you to be happy, You're in love, And I know That you're not in love with me, it's enough For me to know That you're in love, Now I'll let you go, 'Cause I know, That you're in love

I love to see people happy.  But it's really hard when it was someone you thought you would spend the rest of your life with, only to find out they were really meant for someone else.  You were only in their life temporarily to help them heal and move on. You just didn't see that at the time.  So you force a smile, wish them the best and tell them you hope everything works out.  At the same time you're dying inside, holding back the tears.

it hurts like a paper cut.

I dont know what's up with me today.  I just found myself looking at my family picture and it feels like, I'm empty, lost and it hurts like a paper cut.

Beef Pares - Filipino Food

(ala San Juan)


1 kg beef (uncut)

1 piece beef cube 4 cups of water
2 tbsp ginger, minced 2 cloves garlic crushed 1 medium-sized onion, minced
3 pieces star anise

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup sugar 1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp cooking oil
3 tbsp of green onions, finely chopped (optional)


In a pot, put the water and bring to a boil and add the beef and broth cubes.  But if you have pressure cooker you can cook the beef in 30 minutes.

When the meat is tender, remove and cool it down.  Slice it to cubes and set it aside.  Don't throw the stock used for boiling.

Make the ingredients ready.

Saute the garlic, ginger, and onion.

Put-in the sliced meat and saute for about 3 minutes.
Add the soy sauce, beef stock, sugar, star anise and let it simmer for 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens.

Serve with Garlic Fried Rice and soup

I suggest, if you want to try this recipe make sure you have the star anise, as this recipe will never be beef pares without star anise.

Act according to your age, even on facebook

Sometimes the teenagers act more mature than a 30 plus year old.  Just an observation from the facebook walls of those 2 age genre.
Teenagers post in their facebook walls are self expressions and whereabouts.  But with the 30 plus year old, saying “good morning” everyday on their wall is just so immature.  
Then the 30 some thing suddenly stop posting the “good morning” greetings when they feel that nobodies commenting on it anymore.  I bet those friends are annoyed replying back to the same shit every day.  
30 some thing years old should post some thing relevant, interesting and equivalent to your age.
