Moist cupcakes

These cupcakes were amazing-and moist. Last month, I made more than 80 cupcakes for the children party my sister used to do every 2 years.


Moist Vanilla Cupcakes    -    Tasty Kitchen
Moist Chocolate Cupcakes  -   The Farm Chicks

But I'm mostly disobedient to published recipes. I always read the reviews especially the suggestion of those who've done a particular dish. Sometimes, I reject all their ideas and make my own mixing formula. Instead of a cup of coffee,  I like making a cup of brewed coffee out of 4 tablespoons ground dark coffee. Surprises are fun.

Kids need fairy cupcakes though. They tend to eat the frosting alone with a small bite of the cupcake. 
Red velvet cupcakes; notice the liner, that what happens to cheap ones.

My sister


Morning sun
You're never fun
I always run
Don't shine.

Oh night
Keeps me alive
Dark clouds
Let me drive.

I need you
Or you
Let me take you
Before the night takes its due.

Some Devil by Dave Matthews

 One last kiss one only
Then I'll let you go
Hard for you I've fallen
But you can't break my fall
I'm broken don't break me
When I hit the ground

Some devil some angel
Has got me to the bones
You said always and forever
Now I believe you baby
You said always and forever
Is such a long and lonely time

Too drunk and still drinking
It's just the way I feel
It's alright
Is what you told me
Cause what we had was so beautiful
Feel heavy like floating
At the bottom of the sea

You said always and forever
Now I believe you baby
You said always and forever
Is such a long and lonely time

Some devil is stuck inside of me
I cannot set it free
I wish, I wish I was dead and you were grieving
Just so that you could know
Some angel is stuck inside of me
But I cannot set you free

You said always and forever
Now I believe you baby
You said always and forever
Such a long and lonely time

Stuck inside of me

Surigao del Sur

Tinuy-an Falls
Tinuy-an Falls

Enchanted River
Located in Talisay, Hinatuan

Britania Islets

Amazingly, this is not a tourist destination. It's located just beside the road. 

I'd like to thank Ariel Lalisan for the ideas in getting to Surigao del Sur in 2 days.

End Come Too Soon

All the 'must haves' and 'have beens'
Drag my feet to the ground
Chronically blocking them
Force is too strong to stop.

Yearning to live simply
It's OK and I seem to like it
But people's obsession with money
Drags a part of me.

Fucking money
Fucking immigration
Fucking overseas job
Fucking visa.

I see people with blank stares
Ignoring the ground below them
Wasting time
Waiting for the money
They think they'd get one day.

The pristine beaches
the flowers
the trees
the wind...
They've been lookin' at them with blank stares.

Let's swim
Make baskets,
Weave rattans
Make dress
Bake cupcakes
Life is NOW. Here.

Not in the other side of the world. Not later.
Not where you'd ass be like where they have their asses now.
