Food: Pancit & Pasta ala Maria Experimental Version

Hi there! It's been a while, i terribly miss blogging! So many drafts i haven't finished and so many stories i wanted to add. Yay! I guess i'll have a hard time to recall the past happenings and sort out pictures to have my blog up to date. waaaah -___-

Anyway, I cant seem to remember the last food recipe post I had, probably ages ago. muhaha! So for now here's two of my experimental easy-peasy foodies that you may want to try.

Here's how:

  1. Boil water for noodles and veggies. (separately) 
  2. In a pan, saute garlic, onion and beef strips. 
  3. Let it simmer then add oyster sauce. (I forgot to include it in the ingredients list above)
  4. Add salt and pepper as desired.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

Taaaaaadaaaa! My very own version of Pancit Kenten. 
(The noodles actually looked like spaghetti pasta isn't it? haha!)


Few weeks ago, i was craving for something good to eat or just anything that will satisfy my hungry tummy. I wanted something like carbonara or a creamy pasta but there's no ingredients for that so i came up with this kind of whatever pasta. Actually, the idea came from the "garlic and oil pasta sauce" I found when I searched over the web. Then, i made my own version of whatever ingredients that are available.
Here's how:

  1. Cook pasta. Drain. Set aside.
  2. In a pan, saute garlic and onion.
  3. Mix in all the ingredients.
  4. Add salt and pepper as desired.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

Easy right? Happy cooking!

KAISHI: 366 Days with Maria

I'm always fond of doing blog challenges but I haven't really tried the 366DaysChallenge coz Im dead worried that I might not be able to finish it and it will just end to nothing, especially those past years when I'm always busy with offline work. But then again, I guess 2016 is the year for me to finally overcome my fears, starting from the little things that worries me up to the big deals of life that totally scare me to death.

Quite wondering what 366DayswithMaria will be all about?

Hmm. It will be probably a combination of a POTD and my writeful thoughts.  A highlighted snapshot of whatever caught my attention, thoughts based on what i feel about daily encounters or how i managed to survive the day. The goal is simple but I know it will still take effort to come out with something worth sharing. Geez, im excited! I believe once i finish this, I'll feel proud of myself and probably be surprised of what fills my 366Days this year.

A year of ending and beginning, a year of loss and finding... 
Im truly grateful for all those who were with me throughout the sunshine and storm. 
I only hope for many more days in which i can gather like this..and so along witlh my writeful thoughts.

Writefully Yours,

...whaaaat happened October? 

All i ever know is that it was a very tough month. Everyday was like a struggle..well definitely lucky to survive it all.
I've always wanted to have my own kitty paws but not really that dying-to-have-so-will-search-everywhere-to-find-one. Though i know there are some sold online, i just don't feel safe purchasing online anymore, (or for now) chances are it may not be delivered on time or maybe not at all. Anyway, this handmade kittypaws is actually a last minute idea (to add for my halloween costume) and so it's not really perfectly done or just atleast it will look like paws with claws. Haha! I used black gloves and felt papers to make it.. taaaaadaaaa! 
Looking back, I really had no idea what got into me to join this artsy challenge. I mean, I do love art but like i said in my dramatic intro post, it kinda doesnt love me back the same way. I really admire artworks that are neatly done and well-detailed. How i wish i could do it that way too coz obviously mine was all messy and very kid-like drawings.. muhaha! But oh, im a bit proud of myself to keep up and had finished this Wonder A Day Challenge. Whether i win or not, i am grateful for this creative experience that resharpen my dulled art skills. I remember those days when i can't think of any concept to draw/illustrate and it kinda stressed me out coz i dont wanna miss and fail right in the middle. (Entries must be uploaded on the assigned day) But im just so relieved and happy coz i made it. Yes I did!
