Paper Cranes and the Mockingjay

          Featuring my mockingjay pin and rainbow paper cranes. Wooh.. they’re about to fly ^_^ All hail the mockingjay xD

    I was trying to learn how to fold a paper crane and thanks to a tutorial on youtube, I learned it quite fast. I hope I’d get to fold a thousand.  And yes, I’m a THG fan. I finished the trilogy in less than a week while cleaning up the whole house after the flood.

For a Mother to Keep

          Happy Mother’s Day to every mom! Well, I wouldn’t also forget to greet my grandmother. So here I am again, making a card for my mom. I’ve been doing this since childhood and the only times I didn’t was when we bought a cake instead. We’ve been flooded from last year’s typhoon Sendong and all the cards my mom kept that we, her children, have made,  are gone. So I decided I’d make another one this year.

           It’s the front cover. . . pretty plain and simple. I’ve been out of ideas because I haven’t prepared for this day. So this is what I’ve managed. With a little tutorial from youtube, I made those flowers. Just fold and flip!

         Inside my card, I made a poem. If appearance can’t guarantee the proof of my efforts, then I guess being lyrical can make up for it. Added some doodles, not to forget a picture of a panda and then done! I apologize for the poor penmanship. 🙂

          If you can’t manage to read from the photo, I’ll quote it.

Flowers may grow and wither

But words can live until forever

So three things I have to say

To you this Mother’s Day

First, I want to THANK YOU

For the love and care you give that is true

For staying strong for the family

While heavy burdens you have to carry

Second, as I must, I DO APOLOGIZE

For the mistakes I have come to realize

These things, I know, must have hurt you

But to inflict pain I didn’t intend to

Finally, I’ll say the words that greatly signify

‘Cause despite the times that I defy

In spite of the instances that I disappoint you

My actions may show contrast, I DO LOVE YOU.

Hungry?

          Hungry? Pen fries anyone? I know at some point in your life you bit the edge of your pen or pencil. So now, now. Don’t be shy and take a bite.

Merienda: A Filipino’s Favorite Afternoon Snack

               Filipinos have the tradition of taking a light meal in the afternoon which we call “merienda.” The merienda usually consists of coffee paired with breads and pastries. The most typical bread is pandesal but for my preference, I take sliced bread. I’ve always savored the taste of coffee even at a young age. It even tastes better when you dip a piece of bread and take a bite (The Filipino version of oreo dipped in milk). It gives me the soft feeling from the moistened bread like it melts on your mouth and warm feeling from the hot coffee. I do rather have more cream or milk on it and sugar on my coffee. I do not like to take in too much caffeine.

              Why do we do it? Some people said that it was to sterilize bread before eating it. Not really. I think it’s just a great a combination and a fun way of eating bread. The meal tastes good with the bittersweetness.

              Well, look at my panda mug. Isn’t it cute?

Do you dip bread into coffee too?
