My love for Harry Potter began in 2000 – I was in 2nd year high school. I remember reading books 2 and 3 first before reading book 1! I remember being greatly frightened by the “whispering walls” in The Chamber of Secrets! Books 1-6 were given to me by either my dad or relatives, while I finally bought Book 7 with my own money as it was published in 2007 – the year I graduated from college & the year I started working! I will never get tired of re-reading this series. ALWAYS. ❤

Had another awesome lunch at Mandi’s Grill Grub with two other sets of great friends, including Mandi herself! ^^ Aside from their yummy ribs, we also had a taste of a possible dessert offering: chocolate-covered cheesecake! Huhu, I love you, Mandi’s!!! :-*

Forgot to take a group photo, so here’s a collage of some BTS shots from shooting The Food Crawlers‘ 3rd Chat and Chew episode! We featured our happy place along Lilac St. – Mandi’s Grill Grub! We’ll update you about its air date on Chinatown TV!

May: Let’s not go out in June because Nikki has a lot of expenses this month.
June: Third time to meet this month, plus this coming Sunday and next Wednesday.
Yep, we’re clingy friends. =p Seriously speaking, I always look forward to hanging out with these two because I can be extra real with them. You know what I mean, guys. Love you! ❤

I overpoached my eggs hehe! But it’s okay since it’s my first time to use this microwavable egg poacher from uncle Billy. I can’t wait to poach eggs again! So easy to use! ^^

During my last trip to the supermarket, I received a “birthday pack” – spaghetti and Filipino style sauce. Since I will be eating out this weekend and next week, I decided to cook them even though I dislike sweet spaghetti sauce (save for Jollibee’s lol). However, I didn’t have any hotdogs, so I used Spam (less sodium). To neutralize the sweetness, I also mixed in capers, dried basil, and black pepper. The result is not bad, but I will definitely not repeat this recipe. =p

What am I celebrating today? Napping for nearly 5 hours without any alarm! Hahaha! The scary rain earlier prompted me not to have any additional work tonight. Actually, with 500 lessons as my target this month, I will have to work for only 6-7 hours each day starting tomorrow until the 30th if I choose to. We’ll see. But first, some chocolates! ^^
