Mann has finally said goodbye to his fishing rods (for this year anyway only to resume next year), so thought to do the same with my blog.
I know, I haven’t blogged for quite some time. I guess I lost a bit of interest. That and thinking of starting a new blog for the new year. But then again, why bother going to so much trouble of starting fresh if I know deep inside that it will just be dumped and discarded all over again. Maybe I should just stop taking it out on my blog and instead face the reality that it is my head who needed a brainlift.
Difficult task but NEVER impossible. How? By giving it a month until it become a hobby. I heard that 21 days is enough though to create a hobby but since I wanted to be sure sure, I decided to go for a month. On what? Well, do you know how hard it is to control my tongue and fingers from typing away my emotions? It is like trying to go for a run without peeing. Very difficult after my vajayjay spat out my daughter but as I said, never impossible. I do not aim for perfections of course so expect some misses every now and then but rest assured, I am trying! One run at a time that is.
So what’s up with us the last few days? I enjoyed pinoy foods back to back on our trip to Brandenburg to spend Christmas with the schwiegermutter. Crispy pata and then Tapsilog at two different restaurants: Pinoy Restaurant at Danckelmannstraße 49 and Pan Restaurant at Marienburgerstraße 38. Both restaurants have their highs and lows depending on your own idea for what a restaurant is supposed to be but as for me, I am happy with them and would love to go back to either of them over and over again.
New year is spent at home in a very low key fashion with me cooking Humba served with Knödeln and Rotkohl, a mix of both Filipino and German foods. Recipe of Humba was more or less a replica of Vanilla Housewife’s except that I used half of 0.5% Tafel Essig (vinegar) instead of a cup. For dessert, I chose leche flan that was baked with a water bath using the simplest ingredients as possible:
400 ml schlagsahne
100 ml Kondensmilch, gezuckert
6 egg yolk
some sugar to make a caramel
My leche flan may looked like tae but trust me, they are very creamy and tastes good. I just do not have a good molder hence the appearance but maybe, I can do better next time. Or maybe not still.
So, stomach has been filled, Mira is snoring and I still have some minutes to finish this post before kaboom kaboom and kissing kissing with Mann. To officially sign off for this year, I wish you all Happy New Year!
