nO pHuKeT

Can't go to Phuket for my Bangkok trip next month. The plane tickets are expensive due to the holiday during that time. Our other options would be Pattaya and Koh Samet Island, where you can find affordable accommodations. Well, what matters anyway is that i'll have good company when i get there. I'll be spending time with Chanty and Vianne, and there's a gazillion of things to talk about.
See yah in a month girls.

BaKiNg cLaSs

I have a plan for November, that is, to attend a baking class. I have chosen a class at Kerri’s Bake Stop, the Baking Basics 101. The course aims to equip beginners with the procedures and techniques of baking, and to bake with confidence. There will be 2 recipes per session, and it would include choco chip cookies, muffins, apple pies, brownies, chocolate cupcakes and we get to decorate our own cupcakes. Once I’ve learned the basics, I’ll definitely take the Hand-on fondant class next.
It would really be nice to get serious with baking and start a business. Then I could bake Chy’s cupcakes and take orders for Christmas and other occasions. Then people will blog about my cakes, and I will have my own calling cards, not like those free business cards though that they offer online, you’ll only end up spending more.

PuT yOuR rEcOrDs On

Three little birds, sat on my window.
And they told me I don't need to worry.
Summer came like cinnamon
So sweet,
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.

Maybe sometimes, we've got it wrong, but it's alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don't you hesitate.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in the bar by the roadside,
(just relax, just relax)
Don't you let those other boys fool you,
Got to love that afro hair do.

Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid, but it's alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change.
Don't you think it's strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

'Twas more than I could take, pity for pity's sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realise, that you don't even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Here's a song I really love. This is the one i used for the video i created for Chy.
I almost forgot to post my lyrics of the month.

sAnTa iS aLmOsT hErE

It’s the start of the –ber month. Radio stations are already playing songs about Santa, reindeers, snowman and mistletoe. It just means that Christmas is fast approaching. Even the cold air outside tells you that. I already thought about my wish list and will be posting it soon. I will also start listing names for whom I will buy a gift. I want to buy gifts early for my friends if I could go shopping. At least I could scratch out half of the list before Christmas comes.
It pretty exciting this year since close family and friends are coming home like Ate, Kuya and Chy, and my bestfriend Chanty.
