    Accidental “Me” Time

    So I went to the office today, stopped by Starbucks, and was refused entry because of the ongoing evacuation drill in the area. There’s a Starbucks at our office building and I grab my daily cup there before heading to work. I was shocked that I didn’t get any notice of the drill such that I wasn’t able to prepare for nor avoid it. I demanded that I be allowed to go to our office instead but the guards won’t let me. They escorted me away from our office building and towards Makati Shang. Okay, before I had Juancho, my rage meter would have skyrocketed already. But I was relatively…

    Continental Breakfast for Hubby

    What’s your usual breakfast like? Breakfasts in my family are never light.

Traditionally, putos are white in color. Recently though,…

    Cheese & Pesto Omelet

    I originally posted this on March 11, 2010 in YadaYadaYada. I heard from MB, an office friend, that she loved the pesto omelet she had in one of her visits to Boracay. I actually don’t have a picture of that dish in mind but I can already imagine the taste and flavor. Without researching on what to do or what the ingredients should be, I made my way to the kitchen to prepare my own version of Cheese & Pesto Omelet. This should be easy. And yummy. I thought of an ordinary pesto pasta and the kesong puti (goat cheese) pesto sandwich that we ordered in The Bread Bag. From…
