what are you so freakin' busy with?

I could be employed right now but I went back to school to be a student.
I could be financially self-sufficient right now but I stayed dependent on my parent's monetary provision.
I could be the type of person who wouldn't care if time passed but I chose to be the person who feels guilty when time passes and I haven't done anything productive.
I could be sleeping well more often than now but I chose sleepless nights to study for an exam that I wouldn't pass with outstanding marks anyway.
I could be reading tons and tons of novels I have been wishing to read but I chose to be buried in books on Human Anatomy, Surgery and even Parasitology.
I could have more free time than now but I chose this life-consuming career path just so I could earn an 'MD' after my name.

I could be in a community as a Public Health Officer but I chose the path to becoming a Doctor for the community.

In the end, I feel I have been prepared for this. Not just by my friends, mentors and my family... but by God's will. Let this be done.

probably stress-eating...

Here's another chicken recipe:
(a picTUtorial)

What you'll need:

chicken (any part you want or a whole chicken)
coconut juice and coconut meat/flesh
chili leaves

This starts simple: put the chicken in a pot and turn the stove on.
I don't like to put additional oil so I cook the chicken first to let the chicken fat ooze out (which you can use to cook the garlic and onions in later).

...if you prefer to start with additional oil, put the oil first, then sautee the chopped onions and garlic when the pot and oil are hot. When it turns slightly brown, add the chicken in and let it cook (cover the pot and don't add water).

Add the coconut juice and coconut flesh when the chicken's cooked (slightly brown and no bloody parts). Cover the pot again and let the mixture boil.

*see the chicken oil floating in the 2nd picture? If you think it's too much, scoop it up and throw it out -- oil sits on top of the soup so it's easy to scoop out.

When it's boiling, add the salt (how much? depends on your taste ~ I like the soup to taste sweet but with a tinge of salt).

When you're satisfied with the taste, turn the stove off and add the chili leaves.

Do a quick mix and serve. :)

*this recipe tastes great with cooked rice


These are Kenny Roger's Roasters' muffins. It's part of the set meals when you order. My friends and I ate there one time and one of my friends couldn't eat the muffin that was on her plate so I took it, :P
I love love love their corn muffin!


Red Ribbon's White Forest Cake...

This is Black Forest Cake's sister.
Well, I think Black Forest is male-ish. :D

It's sweet ~ duh!
(but some say it's too sweet... to my sweet tooth, nothing's too sweet, hahaha)
If you don't like cherries, I don't think you'll like this. If you love cherries (like me), this is another way to enjoy eating them!

...but I think I'll still choose the masculine Black Forest over the feminine White Forest just coz Black Forest has chocolate, :P

Those look delicious.

Coconut juice? Not coconut milk? This is interesting. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I might try it at home as everyone there is crazy over chicken meat.

Haven't tasted the white forest. I've been meaning to buy one but I keep on forgetting about it. I might as well buy one this Christmas. :)
