This blog is not mainly about food, cooking and recipes. It's just about anything.

Amen for today!

I was  browsing on facebook and saw this, I thought of posting it on my blog
in the hope that it too will inspires others today as it did to me.
I really believe that when God want's you to do something
and you're hands are set to do it, no matter who will oppose you
will never succeed for God is with you.

Hold on everyone... God's takes wheel!

Flute+english horn=guitar

Tomorrow night I will go with hubby to Paul's place where the music recording is being done. We are thinking of bringing our baby though but might anymore co'z it's not good for her to stay up late and besides we're just taking the bike(our motorbike) co'z it's cheaper that way too. But definitely we will going to miss her and even now as I type this post, the thought of leaving here made me miss her already.

Hubby told me that when he was young he used to play the flute and later on he wishes to learn how to play the english horn, yet since the latter is quite have a price hubby never had gotten the chance to even just hold one. Now, hubby is a good lead guitar player. he can also play acoustic very good. :)

Hubby and his gadget-ey!

Hubby and his band is doing progress when talking about their music recording. I never knew that it takes ages to do music records, it's never an easy thing specially when you want quality. Having Richie (a guy name) and Paul (another guy name) lol! to help the band starts it recording is indeed a blessing from heaven. After ten years of waiting and praying to make this thing happen, and living in it now is indeed another dream fulfillment. God is indeed alive and working to grant us our dreams.

Hubby on the other hand is (I don't know how to call it) busy cleaning, wiping, polishing his guitars and is always eager to go to Paul's house for the recording. I never seen hubby so happy after this "meeting-Paul and Richie-plus-music recording" thing. May it be early or late coming home from recording... hubby is always has loads of amazing stories to tell. I hope though that he would try using  hagerty silver polish for his guitars so that he wouldn't be spending all his times holding, examining, polishing his guitar co'z it rocked me to my core and yelled at him (soo annoying!).

Anyways, the band together with their wives (not that the band has many wives, but what I mean is.. the band member wife.. just stressing it. lol!) are all excited for this coming Sunday Night... co'z it's mean recording time again. :) We are all excited to visits Paul and his wife and their house and of course we are excited to see Bernard too.

Recipe's, Cooking, and Life

I am not a pro chef but I do love to cook in my own special way. I probably a chef in my hubby's co'z I'm the one who always cook. Hubby would go hungry if I'm not in the house, reason why every dish I make seems all good with him. I cooked fish and veggies the last and I know that it would the last thing that would hubby will have, but since he had no choices and hungry, he did ate a bunch of it, then told his siblings that it was good (it made me smile).

This fish and vegetable recipe is the most least like of all my recipes (both of hubby and his siblings), but actually if you have to ask me if I like it, I could look at you in the eyes and say... yes! I  love it. I love fish and I love veggies, but I seldom cook it co'z there's always loads of left overs whenever I do.  Then it would take days to ate it. Good thing though hubby's mom eat fish, and she is the one who ate leftovers food.

Right now, I feel like baking chocolate cakes, chocolate cookies, chocolate brownies or anything about chocolates. It's not that I'm a chocoholic kind of person because I am not, I'm inspired by the chocolate cake that sister in-law for her birthday last night. I  soo love it that I want more of it. Ii promise myself that when the we're through of paying some credit this year, I definitely will buy a new oven next year. I just can't buy one this time because I have no space to place it.  I can wait.

My cooking style and some of my recipes are posted in her though, and in fact one friend of mine who lives in Canada told me once that he would visit my blog time after time to see some Filipino-day-to-day recipe where he could cook at home. I am glad as well as worried that he might not able to do it co'z I used local names of the fish and veggies that I use co'z I have no idea what it's "American name" if there is. But anyways, He told me, he was able to try cooking some of my recipes.

Sometimes life is like cooking your favorite recipe, you thought you have cooked it right but it came out not the right taste expected. Sometimes its tastier than the first but most of the time though... you get disappointed on how it turn out. Yet... with all of  my cooking experience, I found out that it's all boils on how your heart feels. The cooking may turn out not good but when your heart is right... everything will turn out just very fine :).

Not happy but not mad

This was taken when during her 8 month birthday. She haven't tried ice cream yet but for the sake of a photo shoot, we put some ice cream on her mouth to look like she won the ice cream fight. Lol! by the look in her face she doesn't like the idea at all.

(fierce look: "that thing on my mouth is cold")

Start with yourself

Moments to give devotional by Robert Strand

When I was young and free and my imaginations has no limits,
I dreamed of changing the world.
As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change,
so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country.
But it, too, seemed immovable.

As I grew into my twilight years,
in one last desperate attempt,
I settled for changing only my family,
those closest to me, but alas,
they would have none of it.
And now as I lie on my deathbed, I suddenly realize:
If I had only changed myself first,
Then by example I would have changed my family.

From their inspiration and encouragement,
I would have been able to better my country  and,
who knows,
I may have even changed the world. (-anonymous)

"Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them 
into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rocks."
-Matt. 7:24
