Whatta Corn Plant!

I don’t know how you look at it but to me, I find this thing really amazing right at the very first glance.

On our way along with my colleagues at work to visit a friend we passed by a house that flashes this simply head-turning plant. Hmm… head-turning, huh? Yes, I find it that way.

We know of course the fact that it is a corn cob (minus the growing baby corn plants along its sides). Not the way how it is supposed to be growing , right? See? That’s what make it distinct. And because I was too amazed to believe it is flaunted before my eyes, I took few quick snaps to seize it more when I got home.

Weeks later, when harvest time came (yes, I’m a farm girl now, too — growing yellow corn), I took 3 cobs home hoping I could make exactly the same thing out of it. I sure didn’t know how to and no one’s there to teach me either so I just ended up leaving the three cobs sit alone and for however long it can.

Maybe one day…just maybe… I can get back to it and do it… But that’s only when I find enough time.

Too Pretty to Break

As we may all believed in, a birthday celebration wouldn’t be as perfect without a cake. At least it’s what I believe in especially when it comes to my two young ladies’ birthdays. I’m not big on cakes myself but I always make way for the best (in their eyes) cake I could possibly afford for them.

D1, Kate just celebrated her14th birthday yesterday and this is what I got for her…

A new found friend of mine happened to be good at what she does — making cakes and pastries. Sad to say¬† her passion is my frustration. Anyway, so this is what she had come up for my Kate. Too pretty to break according to everyone, LOL! They’d rather want to just stare at it than break it into pieces.

The color red and gold was my choice. It’s a favorite color of no one but it turned our really great. Imagine how terrible I’d feel if it turned out the other way around. Holding the doll’s dress is a three-layer cake topped after the other. I have no exact idea of the rest of the details but taste wise — it’s tempting!

Now Grown Ups but Still Kids at Heart

I’m not up to last minute shopping especially for the holiday season so as early as first week of the month I took my girls out for their Christmas shopping and when asked where they want to have lunch as soon as we get to the mall, I still got Jollibee for an answer.

I used to take them out to Jollibee when they were still little. I asked myself what part of this food chain that made them so hooked to that they ignore any other similar food chains for Jollibee? Is it the name? The store logo? Or is it the distinct taste of their chicken, spaghetti and burgers?

Or perhaps my girls were just being patriotic.

For the benefit of non-Filipino readers (should there be any), Jollibee is the Philippine version of the United States’ popular McDonalds and KFC. It is a family-friendly food chain that’s why a lot of Filipino families (with kids) patronizes the store. My particular favorite is peach mango pie and pancit palabok (garnished rice noodles) – something I would crave to at times. :)

Now, off to shopping! Hello breedlove!
