    The Silog I love

    I have a new source of amusement! a washing machine haha. We just bought one and I have been thrilled to pieces just trying to work my way through laundry. I have been hand washing our clothes since we got back from our honeymoon (six months ago)! My hands need a rest, they have been dry as ever! wrinkles and all. 🙁 However, towards the middle of me sorting out the buttons, I realized how much of a noob I was! haha oh well. ANYWAY. Tomorrow is another holiday! Eid al Fitr, which is a special religious holiday celebrated by the Muslims; but Andre decided not to go to work today…

    A Mug Cake + Tales from the Weekend

    Hellooooo, sweater weather! Two causes for a celebration! I made my dad’s blog site work! I have been toiling all morning to fix his new domain and it took me quite awhile to figure things out (more like four hours). Since I have more time in my hands the past few days, I have been experimenting and teaching myself how to do new things. One of my latest contributions to my accomplishment collection is the ability to put up a site via wordpress.org (aka ramosontheroad.com). Recently, I was able to replace a bulb in our lighting fixture that went kaput! (yay haha small sources of joy). And, last but not…

    Clay Pot Chicken

    Thursday = bible study and Chinese food!  I feel like doing a Sheldon (from Big Bang Theory) and declaring tonight as Chinese Food night! Minus the junk that comes with take out grub, since they eat their nosh from boxes. Andre usually holds his d-group (bible study group) at our house during Thursdays and it is such a challenge to whip up something different each time. I am just so grateful that it is so easy to feed boys haha. As long as its edible, then it is good to go! (Right?)  I love love love having guests over! Sometimes it just gets too quiet at home, even for me…

    Ham and Egg Sandwich

    After I realized my husband has left for work, I sent him a message telling him I wish we had more time in the morning. I long for Saturdays when we could just stay in bed longer and have meaningful conversations over breakfast once we finally decide to get up. That is pure bliss, but it just happens once a week (since we prepare early for church on Sundays). Rrrrr. ADULTING. Sometimes I wish we married young so we can just dismiss the responsibilities of being an adult but still be together. WHAT AM I SAYING?! HAHA. HUHU (even my emotions are confused) I am just that sad. This is…

    Beef Keema

    Call us creatures of habit but for the sake of convenience (and because we no longer want to go through the trouble of debating), André and I eat at the same place for the past two weeks. We have been recently attending a bible study at our church and sadly we never get there on time (or given at least a few minutes to eat in leisure before it starts). Which is why we end up eating at the same place, at almost the same time. It saves us the additional 10 minutes of arguing where to eat! So much for the introduction. We ate at Mazza because we loved…
