My First Salad of 2016

One of my goals this year is to eat healthy. Yep, you read it right. Eat healthy. Believe me, I also thought it was impossible, given the fact  that I love food so much. I have this preconceived notion that healthy food are bland and not delicious. So to start slow, I made a resolution for 2016: a goal to 'eat five different salads'.

Five won't hurt, right? But I found it hard to do. I don't know... maybe salads are more expensive; or maybe greens are harder to pick up with fork. I found the solution when I visited the nearest 7-Eleven store. On the food shelf was a Chicken Caesar salad in tortilla form. Sweet!

It looked inviting and delicious! I knew it was the opportune time for me to finally start on my goal. It's a salad... and it solves the price and fork problem. So here it goes...

Crispy. Cheesy. Yummy.
A contrast of soft tortilla wrap and crispy lettuce is the first thing you will feel in your mouth at first bite. Next would be the dominant flavor of cheese slowly melting on your tongue. Lastly, at the climax of it all, is the subtle chicken meat at the bottom of the wrap. I like the chicken because it was unflavored. I mean, no salty stuff added. Simple as that.

The Chicken Caesar wrap... now, I'm starting to believe that there are yummy and healthy food, too. But uhm... for the size of those wraps, it was just enough for a snack. I'll try out big salad dishes next time, okay? For now, it was a good start.

So there goes my 1 out of 5 salads for 2016. I'll share with you my journey with salads starting now. Hahaha~ Hopefully, it doesn't end with just five. (^_^)v

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
