How long can you survive in the Artic ---- without clothes?

Merchandise Liquidators
This is a real funny quiz. I mean, with the advent of facebook, everyone is into quizzes. So i posted this one which i really find interesting. The choices for each question is funny so it's worth the try. The (wild, hypothetical) question is "If You End Up in the Artic Without Clothing, How Long will You Survive?" Mine's 3 1/2 hours but if you were locked in the ref as a military training or know how to assemble an igloo like this quiz suggests.. you may have much more time to survive in the ice naked.

Have fun!

Smell my foot

Korean school chronicles.

For this month:
* i learned how to spell my name

* I also tutored as a substitute for one student for 4 days. I really like this 12 year old Korean. She's so funny and playful and both of us dont have to adjust with each other. We became friends instantly.

One time she was reading something,..she stopped in mid sentence and told me "Teacher, can you smell my feet?" . I tried to pretend that i didnt but it smelled like i dont wanna tell. Well anyway, she was laughing because she said that the aroma went up to her nose.

So what she did was to get one shoe and put it to her nose to smell it then she took the other shoe and smelled it too. Ang cool, amuyan pala ng paa ang trip nito.

So yun. Hindi ko sya mapagalitan kasi pati ako natatawa sa kanya. She looked like a character straight out of a funny anime/Manga comic book.

On her fourth day with me, i told her that it would be the last day i would tutor her. She told me that she wanted me to be her teacher, but i couldnt stay later for her. Nag9 hour shift na nga ako para sa kanya.

So she gave me this: this means " i will miss you teacher".

Now i know why it's so fulfilling to be a teacher.

You're the 1, Goldilocks!

When I say cake.. You say Goldilocks!
Cake.......? (Please respond)

Well, anyway, ever since childhood, Goldilocks treats were always a part of our baons, parties, holidays and simple meriendas. You're the one, Goldilocks because you're the pastry shop of my childhood, present and future.

For baon, the little me would frequently ask my mom for the chewy, classic brownies. Other brownies I have tasted would always have to compare with Goldilocks brownies. Oh, I remember! Mamon and brownies go head to head as my baon. But the stress of being a teacher now makes me crave for my new love: Marble slice.

For parties, my auntie used to order cake rolls for her birthday cause it saves money for her. But, us, kids never feel deprived cause that particular cake roll is a Brazo de Mercedes. It's like having both leche flan and cake at the same time. We loved it. It's a great memory.

Well, now that my aunt's moneyed, cakes are a staple for our family parties and holidays. Our new discovery is the Chocolate Mousse cake. It's perfect. It's the family's new favorite. But for my cousins and I, though we're older, our tastebuds will never forget (and will always look for) a Brazo de Mercedez roll.
For my birthdays, give me any Goldilocks cake as long as it's chocolate (lol)..just put some flowers, make sure there's icing, and we'll make sure that you won't get out of my party without icing on your face.

So you see, my family and Goldilocks have a history of fun together. My sweet tooth always finds it's way to their cakes & pastries and all those happy memories.
Well, too much blogging is making me hungry.
I'd better grab a Marble slice. Bye for now.
