Shortest Book Reviews Eveeer

Posted on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 | 0 comments

I am so happy to tell you guys that at last I was able to finish reading another book this year.  I attempted reading Warm Bodies during the first quarter of the year but it became too boring for my hyperactive self.  I lost interest on the said book and thought of watching the movie instead.  As of press time, I still haven't watched the movie and I hope to watch it as soon as I get another weekend of no work and no meet-ups with friends from abroad or from the province.  

Just last month, I finished reading Wish You Were Here by Daisy Whitney.  It talks about a guy who struggled to get over her mother's death.  

I can see where the story was coming from but it was too difficult for me to connect to.  I just thought it was also very twisted.  I cannot even remember how I got out of the book alive. Probably because my friend recommended it and it made me look for a good ending which never came.  In short, it left me hanging.  Now I am starting to doubt the "goodreads" recommendation because they gave a 3.9 rating out of 5 stars. 

On the other hand, I just started reading Robert Galbraith's The Cuckoo's Calling. I don't know when I'll finish the book but I will keep you updated on my progress. 

Nutrition Month Culminating Activity at MakatiMed

Posted on Tuesday, July 30, 2013 | 0 comments

Yesterday, I hosted the 39th Nutrition Month Culminating Activity organized by the Nutrition and Dietetics Department of Makati Medical Center. 

I feel honored that they chose me to host the event because food is very close to my heart.  

That's me hosting with much gusto as I introduced the chefs who will do the cooking demonstration. 

Chefs Allen, Ana, and Martin showing the audience how to make French Toast with Peaches and Cream. 

Among the three, my favorite is Chef Martin Babasa because he still looked fresh even after the cooking demonstration.  It was so nice of him to pose with me during his cooking break.  I came to know his name through a friend on Instagram.  

I had so much fun yesterday considering all the tension I had to go through before I was allowed to host the event.  

I'd be more than happy to host the said event next year and I hope they'll inform me ahead of time.  Had I known? I could've worn a vegetable inspired outfit.
