Hotcake or Pancake

Yesterday, I cooked some hotcake as per request by my father dear. He really loves hotcake or pancake that if he went to a grocery, a box of pancake will always be included. My niece and nephew loves to eat it too, as a matter of fact, they even helped me prepare some of the ingredients and sometimes they really wanted to do the cooking which is not yet advisable because its too hot for them to handle.

So let’s begin.

The Ingredients

  • cream all purpose flour-1kg
  • eggs-4pcs
  • water-2 cups or depends on the solution
  • sugar-2 cups or depends on how you want it too sweet or not
  • margarine-1-2 tablespoon
  • vanilla extract-a little amount
  • yeast or baking powder (if available, but its best if you have this to make the hotcake mix rise)

Pasta Penne Regati

Next to my craving list was pasta, and now I’m choosing Penne Regati as the pasta to be used instead of spaghetti. I called my recipe Pasta Penne Regati with a twist.

You’ll know why I put “with a twist” later.

Now let’s start.

The Ingredients are:

My own version of PALITAW (Rice Cake)

What is a PALITAW:

Palitaw is a Philippine dessert and snack made with simple rice flour dough that is boiled and then coated in coconut and sesame seeds. The small, flat rice cakes are traditionally eaten during holiday festivities but can be enjoyed at any time.

Since, I’ve been craving to eat Palitaw nowadays (hey, I’m not pregnant, gusto ko lang kumain talaga nito tapos yung maraming coconut tsaka sugar—-tsarap). So everytime, I went to JMall, I went first to the Painitan corner to buy one – 7pcs for Php 45.00 (if ako ang gagawa it could be a lot cheaper because I can make plenty of it). 😂

When my cousin tagged me in her post in Instagram, she posted her own version of PALITAW also, she said that it was so easy to cook, so she shared a video on how to do it.

—-watching the video—-

Now the next step to make my cravings completely satisfied, I need to find the ingredients specially the Glutinous Rice flour. Good thing JMall and Colonade has an available stocks. So now I can start making it.

The Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup of powdered Glutinous rice flour

2/3 cup of water

1/2 cup of sugar

1 tablespoon of sesame seeds

and a freshly grated coconut grains

Diy – Flower and its vase 🌺🌼🌾

I really love doing arts specially school projects. As for now let me present to you the project of my niece in her Filipino subject. She chooses to have a Plorera. They where advised to use scrap materials like a bottle or a can, while for the flowers any papers will do.

The Making.

The vase was made with a can in which I wrapped it with a bondpaper, then rolled it on a powder of powder dust. As for the design of the base, I attached a crepe paper color green, cut it like a leaves underground and a flower like a santan and put it on the body of the can.

For the flowers, the violet, orange and pink long curly strands used materials such as a stick (to make it stand), a straw (to cover the stick with a color green crepe paper serve as the stem) and the curly style are made with crepe paper cut at least 2 inches rectangular, then cut vertically with at least 1/2 for the curls. then last was the leaves made of cartolina cut into leaves shape.

Wedding Invitations

Who’s getting married here? I envy you, hahaha, but its a joke. I just missed making wedding invitations though it was just a very simple one. I guess I could say this is one of my hobby too.

Here are some of the wedding invitations I have made for a couple of years.

I’ve made this last 2014 for my study buddy Annabella who was already married to her Dzordz. The design was originally planned by Dey his husband.

This was his idea, a wedding invitation that will stand as a frame. It was nice but I think the only problem was its stability. We only used a thick construction paper to make the back portion stand balancing on its body.

The cover page, this was already my idea. A butterfly effect with their surnames. I used a parchment paper as the front cover so that the effect of the design inside will be visible or let us say catchy to the eye of the people who are they inviting. Light blue was their motif in their wedding.

The design inside was a wedding ring in 50%opacity as the main background with a leaves effect in opposite sides, still in light blue color. I asked them a quote to be added in each pages. I also tried adding up a sweet picture of them as a sign of a memorable moment in their life. In each pages, I used a thin scented construction paper or oslo paper so that the frame will not fell down because of the heavy paper in the front. While on the frames, I surrounded it with light blue cloth ribbon to add up its effect.

Angel Bliss 👼

Cross stitch is one of my hobby. I learned it when I was in high school days. My teacher (Mr. Cena) taught me on how to do it,???  yes he was a boy and he has a book of different designs of cross stitch. I remembered my first ever cross stitch was a small house I put it on our door but unfortunately the door was replaced and I don’t know where was it now. Second was a cross stitch of a word stating COUNT ON ME and was surrounded by flowers. I placed it also on the wall but years passed yun nasira di ko kasi yun naiframe, nilagay ko lang dingding using a masking tape, yun natanggal siguro dahil sa mga pamangkin ko and misplaced it.

Nung nagbubuntis pa ang ate ko sa pamangkin kong lalaki she bought an Angel Bliss Boy, he already started it and haven’t finished because right after she gave birth to her son she became busy attending the baby and second to her work.

She made the body of it and I continued the rest which was the head part, but before she handed me this Angel boy unfinished I already bought an Angel Bliss Girl. Maybe because of it she thought of letting me continue stitching it to see the finish product.
