Cooking for One’s Self
October 14, 2009, 5:35 am
Filed under: Uncategorized

The kitchen is its own recipe book.

 

Or more particularly, the contents of the fridge and the food cupboard are a recipe of its own. That’s what I learned during the many times I was left alone to fend for myself and act as housekeeper, something that frequently happened ever since I was a kid.

 

There’s never a need for me to look up any recipe whenever I need to cook for myself, or to cook according to any tried and true family concoction. I just get stuff and cook. It’s a nice exercise of uberraschung; I’m not too certain about the taste of the end product until its finished cooking.

 

Sometimes, I hit pay dirt with some of the combinations I come up with. Like this one:

 

Unnamed Sweet and Sour Broth

 

  • Water, four cups
  • Tamarind bouillon cube
  • Onions, sliced
  • Leeks, chopped
  • Pineapple tidbits, with light syrup
  • Ginger, crushed
  • Fresh turmeric leaf, crushed
  • Freshly-ground black pepper
  • Powdered oregano
  • Salt

Dump all in an uncovered pot. Cook to boil. Let boil for at least five minutes. Do not eat turmeric leaf.

 

It’s really not bad, provided that I stock my fridge and cupboard every two weeks.



Brain just died: King of Fighters Sky Stage

Brain too numb to write anything coherent after seeing the official website for King of Fighters: Sky Stage, so I’ll just do the usual lazy post-your-YM-convo for now.

 

Mai: excuse me
Mai: what is this?
Ryan: What is? D:
Mai: oh…sorry
Mai: this is…confusing
Ryan: Wai D:
Ryan: What is it D:
Mai: King of Fighters Sky Stage
Ryan: Sky Stage? D:
Mai: its a KOF shmup.
Ryan: Uh what? D:
Mai: shoot em up? Ikaruga? Touhou?
Mai: http://sadpanda.us/images/49865-CT2O33Z.jpg
Mai: it’s not April 1 right?
Ryan: Uh…yeah D:
Mai: or did I unknowingly go back in time and this is really April 1
Ryan: It’s not April 1, and that looks about right D:
Mai: because this is a pretty bad joke
Mai: http://sadpanda.us/images/49866-V7TK1M7.jpg
Mai: I don’t know what to think about anymore D:
Mai: is it awesome?
Mai: is it purely retarded?
Ryan: It looks okay…
Ryan: I mean, it makes sense.
Mai: it…does?
Ryan: Kyo has the fireballs, Athena the psychoballs.
Mai: I…I don’t know D:
Ryan: Kim Kaphwan would have the kimchi balls
Mai: /;_;\
Mai: please, stop the brain hurt
Ryan: Myuh \;3;/
Mai: I mean, what the hell are they going to shoot in the first place!?
Ryan: Uh, flying….rugal clones??? D:
Mai: I dunno man. I really…
Mai: maybe a flying juggling monkey but I don’t think you even know about the juggling monkey in KoF history
Mai: but I think it’ll make sense…
Ryan: I dunno that one D:
Mai: yeah I guess you don’t…
Mai: *gurgle*
Ryan: D:
Mai: maybe they’ll shoot down flying porkbuns or maybe its all a ploy to let fans get what they wanted the most: a game that lets them see Mai’s butt every freaking second of the game’s duration
Mai: maybe they’ll shoot down flying red caps
Mai: I dunno, I dunno. I think I won’t be sleeping well tonight
Ryan: Uh D: D: D:
Ryan: Myuh, calm down Mai-Mai \o3o/

Mai: it’s…its a bad world out there.



Yay, pink again.

All that orange was getting to me, so I decided to revert to the usual pink. I’ve had a lot of turtles in some of the past layouts, so I guess its time for some FROG.

 

(Frogs are nice. Looking at them makes me feel like all’s right in the world.)

 

Not much in the way of updates this time, so the following will have to do:

 

Currently Watching:

  • Kamen Rider Decade
  • Bakemonogatari

Currently Playing:

  • SMT Devil Survivor (paused indefinitely; goddamn single save file)
  • SMT Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon

…I just hate games with single save files. Goddammit, I want to break things.

 

Thanks to the Nyan for scribbling the coffee frog x frogstyle banner.



A snippet of stolen time yields a lot of amusement.

This blog post is actually a test done on one of the business-related applications that we’ve been testing for eventual roll-out. ‘Related’ somehow similar to the concept of the Friendster six-degrees of separation, haha.

I love my work so much. In the most mundane sense, at least.

And now, back to work.

It’s funny how quick people can be to judge you when empathy would easily be the better route.  The idea that happiness is not the ultimate goal in life is not only ridiculous, it’s bullshit.  It’s a basic human right to look for joy in our lives.  There are exceptions to everything, and this is no different.. but still.  Obligation does not rule our lives.  Sure we have a moral compass that points to right and wrong, but we also have one that points to what is right and wrong for us as individuals.  Where you go with that is somewhere in the middle and no one can know what is in your head except for you.

Damn awesome.

That’s probably the only thing I can say about getting what could be one of the most awesome gifts I ever received this year (maybe even last year, too): a UDF Metal Gear Solid 2 Snake action figure. AKA the Super Smash Bros. Brawl edition Snake (but that’s not really important right now).

Other awesome gifts that I got so far include a snip of hair, a scruffy shirt, a scent, a whisper, a promise that I didn’t ask for, but was given and became my Heart’s Desire anyway…

…this was never meant to degenerate into that kind of post, by the way.

Thank you. That’s all I really wanted to say in this post.
