Day 3 – Your idea of the perfect first date

This is tricky because I think there is no such thing as a perfect date and if you ask me, it’s not so much about the date but who your date is.

I am rather tempted to say a candlelit dinner of Italian cuisine under the stars, with a string quartet playing in the background and fireworks as we toast champagne, but it’s too froufrou now that I think about it.

The closest thing to a perfect first date for me would be all about free-spirited fun, filled with laughter and interesting conversation.

Kind of like spending the day at an amusement park, channeling our inner kids and free spirits, having all the fun in the world with the crazy wild rides, eating all the cotton candy and ice cream we want, just being our fun-loving selves and not minding whether we look ridiculous with our messy, wind-swept hair, then ending the day with cups of coffee and dessert at a quaint cafe talking and laughing like old friends or kindred spirits and going home like it was one of the best and most fun conversations we’ve ever had.

Winning fluffy unicorns is optional.


Day 2 – A photo of something you ate today

Feasted on these for lunch today.

Sauteed shrimps, meatball surprise (the quail egg inside is the surprise), kinilaw, breaded fish, beef randang, german potato salad, baked macaroni, chicken croquettes, shrimp rolls and everyone’s favorite fiesta fare – lechon.

For dinner, we’ll probably still be having mostly all of the above. Last time I checked, the kinilaw, meatballs, and sauteed shrimps have been polished off. Unless dear mother decides to treat the family out for pizza. Haha.

Edit: No pizza dinner. Dear sister’s frying more shrimp rolls. Yum.

Day 1 – A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was

This is me after a full and bustling afternoon of last-minute shopping and a grocery run at the mall with dear parents. Had to coax the little sister to snap my photo as she takes better photos than me and I kind of want my first blog challenge to be, well, special. Harhar.

Today was quite busy although in a fun and enjoyable way. Spent the entire afternoon as dear mother’s shopping assistant which means lingering for a long time at the mall’s kitchenwares/housewares section. The thing is, I got so caught up in the excitement of starting this blog challenge that I momentarily forgot today is bound to be filled with a lot of pre-fiesta preparations, tomorrow being our city fiesta. Hence the last-minute shopping, grocery run, errands and whatnot.

Tonight, I’ll be dear mother’s kitchen assistant as she begins preparing for all the scrumptious dishes she will be cooking tomorrow. Now I think there couldn’t have been a more perfect time to start this challenge because I will have a grand feature for tomorrow’s challenge – a photo of something I ate. Wait, I am getting ahead of myself. Oh, the excitement!

Great way to fill this fairly new blog and keep blogger’s block away. My blog challenge begins tomorrow (hopefully).

Ready, set, blog!

Not another new blog.

How many blogs are started and left hanging in the world wide web, ending up as gaping holes waiting to be filled with entries?

Two, three, or maybe four of these are mine – blogs I started for some purpose or reason: a creative distraction of sorts, a less personal alternative writing space from my two-year old private blog, a school notebook slash journal, wanting to try a new blogging site. But these blogs ended just as soon as I have launched them with a few entries. Some died with the ‘delete blog’ option, some are left stranded online for good, gathering cyberspace cobwebs because I haven’t updated or visited them in so long, I forgot the username and password altogether.

Now, another blog is born. I honestly have no plans for this blog except that this will be an expression of me, Dee. And I guess that’s a good thing because I will set no expectations, no pressures on this blog. It will just be sharing about me, what I like/love/loathe/want/feel/think, whenever I feel like it. And to keep things generally light, there won’t be TMI moments here.

So if you’ve stumbled upon this blog by chance, Hi, I am Dee. Welcome. And to my blogging friends, sorry for being fickle but I guess you’ll have to change links again. Teehee.

WP for BB

WordPress for BlackBerry. Isn’t it the coolest thing ever?

No need to open the laptop for a quick post. Works just great for me since I hardly bring my netbook along with me anywhere except to the office. Now wherever there’s WiFi to leech, I can blog!

And it’s even perfect on lazy days when all you want to do is sink into bed. Such as today. I seriously do not want to get up yet. It’s the weekend for cryin’ out loud. But I owe my Election Law book some serious reading for class this afternoon. Ah well, the good thing is I can read in bed. And now, blog too. Life is still sweet.
