Nope I am no Twilight fan... I have no clue what is in the book. The first two movie, I saw only at home way later after it was shown but I do love this OST. For my ears, it is right up there with Train's Marry Me. If ever we do a renewal of vow of some sort and give out CD souvenirs again, I would probably include these two songs.

Happy listening...feeling some goosebumps already. Sigh!

Throwback: Here is the list of the song included in our wedding souuvenir. Layout by my big bro, Manong Ramos. 12 His Picks, 12 Her Pics and 6 Our Picks. 12th Anniv on 12/06 when we got married. Did you get it? Hihihi.

Last November 2012, Masterchef Pinoy Edition (Homecooks) aired during the mornings at Channel 2 ABS-CBN hosted by Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo together with Chef Judges Ferns, Lau and Jayps. But like the rest of the manggagawang Pilipino, I don't get to watch it during the day because I'm already at the office.

But I have never missed an episode thanks to www.iwantv.com.ph!

It is ironic that I am watching it because as you know I am a kitchen handicap and I have very little interest in the magical world of cooking next to my husband who likes to cook to help him release stress, remember my Orange Plate post? Not me, I get stress out when I have to cook even just the thought of frying hotdogs for breakfast stresses me! But I like how the story of each kusinero and kusinera unfolds during the game tsaka I like yung mga damit ni Juday. Katuwa nga that in one of their episodes, she was wearing a pleated dress that kinda looks like the one I bought last December.

Of course, hubby watches it with me to learn new tricks. I on the otherhand is starting to realize that it is possible to create a dish with only Php 100 under 45 minutes so perhaps this year I would try cooking again. I already tried before pero wala talaga kong tyaga, naiinip ako and all. But let's just keep our fingers cross.

Right after attending our cousin's wedding on Rizal Day, our family took a detour to Seriland which is located inside the 2nd Floor of the Manila Ocean Park. As expected there were a lot of people and it was quite confusing but we just entered the building and asked the guard for direction. We were instructed to go left (from the door) and take the escalator. But right before the escalator we saw a booth selling the Seriland ticket. There were actually 4 areas but we were just interested to see the Trick Art Museum.

From their regular price of Php 150 per area, they were on sale for the holiday for Php 99 only. So we decided to see Trick Art Museum and Mirror Maze.

We entered the first area, the Trick Art Museum. It was actually just a small area if you ask me, with different illusion paintings on the walls and the floor. It might just be me but I didn't get the paintings at a glance so I had to look at the instructions found at the side of each artwork. Camera flash is not allowed and the key is to angle your camera to capture the illusion because if you don't walang kwenta hahaha!

When you do visit the room, wag KJ. Be ready to emote and be creative when you pose so your pictures will look amazing. Also, make sure your photographer is capturing the right angle.

Next area was the Mirror Maze. Medyo natakot ako when the staff was giving us instruction plus not knowing where to go and a bit dark. Good thing the attendant really assisted us throughout the maze. If you think about it, sobrang liit lang talaga nung room but because of the mirrors installed, parang ang haba-haba nya. Paikot ikot kami until we found our way out into the black curtain with the EXIT sign.

Just be careful and don't run around because you might bump into a mirror. Enjoy!
