Currently 2017 edition

So it’s been a while.  I’m sorry.  I have been too busy lately.  I went back to working full time for now, since school really put a hole in my bank account.  To be honest, I don’t think I’m going to go back to school.  Reason?  Age.  Money.  Interest.  The list is endless.

So to sum up my absence:

CURRENTLY WATCHING:  Knowing Brothers featuring the kings Bangtan Sonyeondanbts_20170917_124644 (BTS).  They are back and they have been slaying the charts!  This particular TV guesting had me laughing non stop.  I heard the cast were holding back in fear of ARMY backlash, but as a BTS fan, it was funny nonetheless.

 

CURRENTLY EATING:  Nothing.  It’s 3:30 am here, so yeah.

CURRENTLY CRAVING:  Bubble Milk Tea.  I have been craving this for weeks now, which is bad, since I am a type 2 diabetic.

CURRENTLY DRINKING:  Diet Coke.  Nothing special.

dec0fdf80d4c050111defb64e52cf5ee--brown-boots-outfit-fashion-bootsCURRENTLY WANTING TO BUY:  a new pair of fall boots.  I’m not a shoe person, per se.  I usually buy a pair and use it until it breaks or splits in half.  This year however, I decided to splurge a little bit.  I noticed that my paycheck depletes because of my restaurant hopping and I want to try and buy something for ME every paycheck — be it shoes, bag, clothes, makeup or skin care.  Something that is NOT food, goddamnit.

39efbdd3e8deb5912bf65eaae59b705d1b4cd51c_00CURRENTLY CRUSHING:  Who the FUCK else?  None other than the Golden Maknae of BTS, Jeon Jungkook.  Do I really have to tell you why?  He sings like an angel, exudes sexiness when he dances, has swag when he raps, he’s a freaking athlete, his body is to die for and despite all that, he remains one of the humblest, most down to earth celebrity I have ever known.  Yes, I know, I got it BAAAD.  I am so trash it’s embarrassing.

CURRENT SONG ON REPEAT:  DNA by BTS.  Actually, fuck that.  I have the whole Love Yourself:  Her on repeat.  Check it out if you haven’t already!  All the songs are great, but I recommend Dimple and Mic Drop the most.

CURRENTLY UPSET ABOUT:  My stupid roommate.  He has been an asshole as of late.  I can’t even manage to talk to him without wanting to slap that stupid look on his face.

Well there you go!  Toodles!

CURRENTLY…

Bull_Fighting-posterCURRENTLY WATCHING:  Bull Fighting (Dou Niu, Yao Bu Yao?) starring the gorgeous Mike He, Hebe Tian and Lee Wei.  This is actually an old Taiwanese series (2007) that I watched well, because of Mike He.  This is a story about basketball, family ties, friendshop and love.  It also stars Godfrey Gao of Mortal Instruments:  City of Bones so the hotness is well supplied!  I love how the story is integrated with street basketball and I absolutely LOVE the way Mike He plays ball!  I also love the OST of this series.

CURRENTLY EATING:  Shopsy’s All Beef Quarter Pounder Hot Dog.  I did not feel like cooking anything and i know that processed meats are supposed to cause cancer and shit.  I’m just not up to chopping, boiling, braising, sauteing and all that shit today.

thumb_600CURRENTLY CRAVING:  Baton Rouge’s Apple Cobbler.  Effin’ TO DIE FOR.  A warm apple cobbler with cinnamon, caramel sauce, walnuts and french vanilla ice cream.  How can you resist?  The sprinkled walnuts takes me to another level of heaven.  Imagine eating that after a delectable plate of rib steak and mashed.  SOOO GOOD!

CURRENTLY DRINKING:  Gibeau’s Orange Julep juice.  The sugar keeps on piling up!  I need to freaking stop or I won’t wake up tomorrow morning.

download (1) Urban_Decay_Naked_Skin_Liquid_Foundation_30ml_1390913626hd-foundation_P00015CURRENTLY WANTING TO BUY:  a new foundation.  I still have yet to decide which one.  I am currently using Urban Decay’s Naked Skin foundation but I am feeling an urge to change brands.  Don’t get me wrong, UD’s Naked Skin is good — light on the skin, good coverage, not oily and it fits my skin tone well.  I just have this thing of not sticking with cosmetic brands.  I’ve already tried Makeup Forever’s HD Foundation and Lancôme`s Teint Idole and they were all pretty good but I still think that the best one is still out there somewhere.

mikehehebe-copie-1CURRENTLY CRUSHING:  Who else?  Mike Freaking He!  He is especially HOT in Bull Fighting!  I just finished watching Go!  Single Lady and that made me want to watch Bull Fighting.  He is a sight to behold!  I swear if he stares at me the way he stares at Hebe I will faint!

CURRENT SONG ON REPEAT:  Marvin Gaye by Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor.  I don’t necessarily like this song but I have to sing it with my roomie for my friend’s birthday so I have on repeat so I could memorize the words.  I’m going to admit that it’s a struggle because deep inside me I don’t want to sing this song.

CURRENTLY UPSET ABOUT:  Nick Carter’s scores on Dancing with the Stars.  SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!  As much as I love Nick I knew that his Argentine Tango was meh but this Quickstep was sick!  I hate how they’re obsessing over Bindi — she looks so stocky when she dances!  I see no lines whatsoever.  They are nitpicking every single thing about Nick!  I mean, “out of sync for a quarter second” — REALLY??!?!?!

FOOD!

The one thing I miss the most about the Philippines — THE FOOD.  There are some things that are available here but there are those that I can only dream of eating

InipitINIPIT.  This shizz is the bomb.  My favorite has got to be the one from Eurobake, a pasalubong center in Bulacan.  It is basically a pastry made up of cake and a scrumptious custard filling in the middle.  I tried to stuff myself the last time I was on vacation but I miss it so much!

JOLLIBEE’S PEACH MANGO PIE.  The crispy crust and the gooey peach mango filling = heaven.  I wanted to sneak one in the plane when I left Manila!  There’s Jollibee in the US and Toronto so it is not as inaccessible as inipit but it’s still 6-9 hours away.  YUM!


Maxs_Fried_Chicken

MAX’ FRIED CHICKEN.  There is a Max’ restaurant in Toronto but I have yet to go.  Many people have tried to imitate the crispy awesome fried chicken but so far, none compares.


pastillas-de-leche-+-trivia-+-filipino-candiesPASTILLAS.  There are a lot of pastillas available in the Philippines but nothing compares to the one from Bulacan.  First inipit and now this!  Bulacan is pastry heaven!
