Activities for the next four days will be eating, eating, and then possibly some more eating, sprinkled with long naps. Super pumped for it! Last night (midnight to be exact), my family and I made suman (it's basically a rice cake wrapped and steamed in banana leaves). It's excellent with cocoa jam and sugar. Making it kind of made me feel like I was back in the Philippines.

I can't believe Christmas is already here! Hope everyone has an amazing, awesome, merry, and everything happy holiday!

My mom and I made siopoa today! It's a popular filipino steamed snack. It's basically a soft & semi-sweet dough with chicken/quail egg filling. I have this little goal of baking everything I pin from pinterest (such a dangerous goal...sweets will be the death of me). Next on the list is chocolate yogurt cake. I cannot eat it.

Finally took a break from instrumental music, and had Sa Isang Sulyap Mo and James Arthur's amazing Impossible version on replay.

Hello winter (well, in a week). This is one of my favorite spots at school. I come here to escape from classrooms and professors, just for a little while.
Finally finished with this semester! I don't even know where those four little months went...good riddance, I suppose? ha. Nonetheless, this semester has been the worst, but also the best semesters I've had. Odd, but it's true!

To help you get into the winter mood/festivities: Midwest Production & Le Long De La Reverie. happy happy!
