Hear That?

That's the sound of the universe laughing. Every time you make plans, every time you see a little glimmer of hope, thinking things are finally going your way, the universe cackles like a witch brewing a potion that would backfire on whoever used it. Eff off, universe. I can laugh back at you, too.

Trunks, Trunks, and More Trunks

I've seem to have gotten this thing for trunks - you know, the kind that you can throw everything into and yet use as a chair, a side table, or a coffee table? These past weekends, when strolling in the mall, I've seen some pretty interesting trunks, but the prices are just unbelievable, so I as usual, Internet, here I come. You might not think trunks are worth your while but take a look at these. The second one is particularly fetching because it's supposed to be Doctor Who-related...and you know how that goes. Looking for unique trunks, too? Trunks Depot is an online shop that has a lot of options. Click to find us here . Images via DoctorWhoOne and caliconcept

New Recipe: Wholesome Beef Stew Recipe from "Healthy Cooking for Happy Kids"

I've always loved to cook, but I've never been one to do well following recipes.

Enter the Wholesome Beef Stew recipe from "Healthy Cooking for Happy Kids", a cookbook specially made for moms who want to serve their kids healthier food without too much of a hassle. Technically there are no kids in my house, but sometimes it feels like... Since we love caldereta - the Filipino version of beef stew - I decided to give this recipe a try. The ingredients seemed simple enough, so I made a list and headed off to the supermarket to get things together.
