This blog is shaping up to becoming a cooking blog! Hahaha...
Obviously, I am fond of heart shapes. Thus, even the few pieces of accessories I have should be this shape. Sweet. ^_^

CHIX DRUMETTE BARBECUE
I have prepared this dish several times for my friends here in SG. But I think I have only cooked it a few times for my Cookie. And since he says it's his favorite, I may consider this to be a regular in the Cookie's dinner menu. :)

First stop was Lucky Plaza along Orchard Road. SGD to PHP exchange rate still has not picked up. It was only at 28.25 PHP to a dollar. After doing that errand at iRemit, we went to the food court at the Lucky Plaza basement to grab some lunch. I missed Chicken Rice and so I had the White Chicken Set. My Cookie had his favorite Mixed Rice combo. Yum! ^_^
After a filling lunch, we had a little stroll along Orchard Road, and found ourselves at the facade of Cathay Cineleisure Orchard. It's about time for a movie date. It's something the Cookies haven't done for a while. Last movie we saw at the theaters was Enchanted.
We spent some 30 minutes at the cinema lobby while waiting for the movie. We shot some photos with my phone camera to pass the time.
Isn't my Cookie just the cutest? Hihihi.. ^_^
While waiting for the movie, we also munched on some snacks - salted popcorn, Coke Light for my Cookie, and Qoo White Grape Juice Drink for me!
I was first introduced to Qoo at the Kopitiam drinks stall at Plaza Singapura. Since then, I have been fond of it. I look for it at the groceries each time but to no avail. And so, seeing that Cathay was having a snack promotion for a Qoo combo, I went for it!

Ingredients. Hmmm... Shrimps, of course. The medium-sized ones will be good. I bought the shrimps that sold for 10.50 SGD a kilo. Some onion, garlic, ginger and butter. :)
Put in the butter, let it melt. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger. Put in the shrimps. Add salt and sugar to taste. Add some chili flakes (from Pizza Hut take away) for heat. And... Tada! A delicious viand that goes perfectly with steaming boiled rice.
In a while, I'll start working on my special spaghetti recipe for dinner. ;)

Its the final stretch of my 3 week holiday. Tomorrow, I will be flying back to Singapore to face reality again - that is work. Sniff! I am sure going to miss being on vacation.

This morning, the crew from Sta. Fe came by to assist in the packing of my personal effects for shipping to Singapore. They arrived at 9:00 am and finished the job by 10:30 am. The packing team is very efficient and did a quick job without compromising careful handling of my belongings.

As I write this blog entry, I am enjoying an 80's Sharon Cuneta movie on Cinema One - Forgive and Forget. And for lunch which is happening in 30 minutes, I will enjoy a steaming bowl of my Mama's Pork Sinigang. ^_^

Cousin Rose and I went to see Judy Ann and Ryan's MMFF flick Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo. Since we saw the first movie Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo, it's just hard to miss the sequel.
This is the day we have set for the AIU-RP Year-End Reunion Party. And it was surely a blast. The gift grabbing, mahjong clinic, poker game and videoke session got the team to re-bond ang catch up on each other's lives.
New Year's Eve was spent at the hospital. Well, it's the first for our family to not spend the last day of the year at home, but it doesn't mean it is less special.
It turned out quite fine, actually. We still had the usual Media Noche. And the residents within the vicinity of the hospital gave a really nice fireworks show, and we had front seats. Hehehe... My sister even recorded some video clips with her N6300.
Good thing my brother was already discharged from the hospital and will just continue to recuperate here at home. Hopefully, we can do some family lakwatsa over the weekend.
Only a few more days and I will be back in Singapore to be with my Cookie. I miss him terribly and I am excited to be with him again. But while I am here, I want to spend as much quality time as possible with my Mama and sibs. I am not sure when I can come back for another visit. But hopefully, next time around, they can come to Singapore to visit me. ^_^
