A Blank in My Memory

I have made several attempts to write something for this evening’s post. I tried writing something with a title Being Green and was reminded of MyePinoy because of his dedication to the preservation of Mother Nature and everything related to her. But the effort was futile and I couldn’t write anything about it.

It’s the movie The Lake House which is being aired at HBO while I am writing this. It’s my second time actually but I couldn’t keep myself from viewing it still with interest and fascination.

I tried writing about our visit to best friend Mila’s house at San Mateo. There’s lots to write about but I cannot encourage myself to write about it, either. It’s like there is a huge blank in my memory that would not supply or provide the right words, intro, drama, excitement, et al for a post.

It’s the movie The Lake House, which starred Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullocks (two of my favorites), which keeps on distracting me. I even downloaded the soundtrack It’s Too Late by Carole King from Sonific. Everything about this movie is so fascinating, I think.

Then I said to myself, “Why don’t you just bloghop?” but failed to convince myself. I cannot even have the urge to do so. I am afraid I cannot even leave a sensible comment or a crisp hi or hello.

It’s this movie. And the climax is fast approaching. I still can feel my heart beat fast though I know already what will happen next.

There – I wrote a nonsensical post out of a blank in my memory. Gotta do what I have to do next.

Photohunt: Thirteen

Baby Drew is the firstborn of hubby’s nephew Raffy and Sally. I ran out of time to post it yesterday because we went to visit my best friend Mila’s abode yesterday which is in far away San Mateo, Rizal. And yes, it is still a part of the Philippines he he

Healthy is Not Delicious

The other day, two radio hosts were talking about the need to be conscious of what to eat. With all the news about deadly or chronic ailments, or about the different illnesses that we get by not eating right, it is high time, they say, to be really watching what food to eat and how much.

One of the hosts complained that healthy (food) is not delicious and she began telling her ordeal about a sandwich she’d eaten that tasted like cardboard and another chicken sandwich with lettuce that appeared more like lettuce sandwich with chicken because the chicken meat is very small. They continued until they mentioned that Oprah was heard saying that we can eat all the food we want to eat but with only small amounts. Sounds good to the ear. 🙂 But how much is a small amount?

Actually, it is a dilemma for me to be following all this dieting and measuring the contents or the ingredients of the food I eat. I dislike eating food without the taste, that is, the ‘right’ taste that the food must have. Although ‘right’ taste vary from one person to another, diet suggestions on measurements do affect the taste that is required of a particular dish. Take for example, adobo, which one main ingredient is soy sauce. Regulating the amount of soy sauce to the requirements would lessen the salty taste minimizing the quality of the viand. It will then transform the viand into something not of the adobo quality.

It is really a challenge (or a struggle) to be controlling what we have to put in our mouths. I am sure many would agree. It is at this point that what we have to really (as in really) instill in our minds is that the accumulated amounts of these unhealthy foods (with their ingredients, and the condiments, too) will one day put us in a situation where we could have wished that we can turn back the time and tune up our food habits.
