I have lived a good deal of my almost half a century out of the Philippines. My longest stay in the country was when I was completing my Bachelor's Degree in Communication Arts at the University of Santo Tomas eons ago... I love cooking aside from shopping...for kitchen gadgets, knick-knacks, etc. Top of my favourites would be eating, though, and pouring through books; travel and cookbooks. Larousse Gastronomique, Nigella Lawson's Feast and my complete Harry Potter collection are just a few of the books I won't part with...not even with my bestest best friend! With the amount of things I love...There are very few I truly despise and refuse to understand. Say, homewreckers and women who think they can just take somebody else's husbands or boyfriends away! Whichever way though, I always take situations and try to view things both ways -flexibility!
