I had a great and restful sleep so I decided to do the following in one shot:

*** cook arrozcaldo


*** grill (broil) chicken


*** “cook” perogie


*** heating food in the microwave

It’s indeed a “cooking spree”!  When I opened the oven to check the chicken, after few minutes the alarm went off! It scared the hell out of me! At first, I thought it’s the oven that’s making that crazy sound, so I immediately turned it off.

“the accomplice”

However, the alarm did not stop. I was going nuts figuring out what’s happening. Good thing, Hyan (my housemate) woke up and helped me out by fanning the smoke away from the smoke alarm. He also opened the window for a moment, to let the “snow cold” air in. Miraculously, the sound stopped. Whew!

It turned out, the smoke alarm was triggered because I was cooking so many things at the same time! Considering that the windows and doors are closed and the heater is turned on (it’s Winter!), the room temperature just shoot up to the “hotness” level!


Lesson Learned:
Open the front door and the windows when cooking a lot of dishes all at once!


I was chatting with Jasmine, Timmy’s best friend and playmate, when she mentioned that Timmy was asking her why I don’t have an article about him on my blog site, TheCuriousMe.

He wants to know if he didn’t have a great impact in my life to warrant an article. It’s funny because I’ve been receiving similar queries and some are even requesting for me to write an article about them. Ha!

Anyway, I’ve completely forgotten about Timmy’s query when I stumbled upon the testimonials in my Friendster’s account which was buried in one of my dormant email addresses.

And to my surprised, he has a testimonial for me! Ha! I wonder what prompted him to post a testimonial? It was Jasmine whom I kept bugging to post a testimonial for me but she did not make any effort to post one because of unending “blah blah”.


Timmy is the boy-next door type who loves to play computer games. He’s quick-witted and a complete hearthrob in which he’s unaware of. In my point of view, he’s like a kid trapped in a grown up’s body.

His bubbly attitude and positive outlook in life makes people drawn to him, aside from his good looks of course! Nah, I’m not trying to sell him or feed his ego, I’m just stating a fact. :p

Jasmine & Timmy

One of the fondest things that we had was on how often we gang up on Jasmine for her “penchant” for the English language and for cooking “edible” foods. 😉

I’m looking forward to hanging out again with them! This time, on the other side of the world where four seasons exist.  See ya soon guys!
