Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Tapioca and I are up to a big project. And that project costs a lot. And that also means no travel expenses for us until we reached our goal. Sadness, right? But the good news is WOW Philippines Travel Agency, Inc. is giving away FREE Boracay Package in celebration of it’s 5th year anniversary. I really hope I win this cos I really miss Boracay. The last time I went there was last 2008 with my dear friend Josh (geez, that was a long time ago). I can still remember the gorgeous beach with amazing blue-greenish color of the sea, the oh-so-fine white sand, the fresh seafood at really low price, the Jonas fruit shakes, party at night Boracay style and the list goes on and on.

By the way, this contest is open to anyone all over the world (Bhodz, if you’re reading this, I know you so wanted to go to Boracay). Don’t ever think twice and join now!!!! Click here to join the contest.

Here are the details:

Ju(i)cy Lucy - First Attempt

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Inspired from the TV show Man VS Food, we tried to make our own Ju(i)cy Lucy at home. This kind of burger was introduced in Minnesota by two different establishments who claim to have it invented. I suggest to Wiki it or better yet watch the show to learn more and be inspired like us.

These were the spices we added to the patties.

we've used american cheese to be put in between the patties for that gooey molten cheese core of the burger

then these babies were pan-fried using butter . . .

. . . and this was our dinner. we had fries too topped with the remaining american cheese

Now, now the burger was not what we were expecting. We were actually expecting the hot gooey cheese oozing out of the burger when you take a bite but that didn't happen. Here's the cross section with a little bit of cheese. The cheese did melt but we were expecting more.

the cross section . . .

After the unsuccessful attempt, I tried researching on how to achive that juicy cheesey lava in between the patties and certainly we missed one thing. We forgot to prick the top of the burger to allow the steam to escape. Hmmmm so that's why. We knew better now so I hope we make it right next time for we don't have any plans to go to Minnesota anytime soon. :-)

To make it up with our failure, here's my very first Ben & Jerry's. When I saw this in one of the fridge in Shopwise one thing popped into my head. It's Penny from the Big Bang Theory show.

Since it's my first Ben & Jerry's I got the neapolitan dynamite because it has 2 flavors. The cherry garcia and choco fudge. We'll I'm a cherry person so the cherry garcia won me over. But I'm still partial to Häagen-Dazs. Soweee.


A Very Pink-ish Post

Friday, April 2, 2010

For the longest time, I have been an HP fan when it comes to mini notebooks. In my opinion, they have the most stylish mini notebook ever. From it's aluminum casing, perfectly proportioned keyboard and larger screen, it's all that and a bag of chips.

hot pink eeepc asus seashell with hot pink sleeve, mouse and external hard drives . . .

Well not anymore. I changed my mind and now have the hots for the new ASUS seashell (by the time this has been posted it will probably be out dated by something else, LOL!) in hot pink (also available in coffee brown) designed by none other than Karim Rashid. They guy who adores pink but take note he's married and definitely not gay (ehem!)

. . . plastic is fantastic - Karim Rashid

I can just imagine myself looking very chic while carrying this netbook like a purse . . . *evil laugh*
