When I'm too lazy to cook, I just have instant ramen for lunch. There are so many types and flavors of instant noodles in the supermarket here!

Still wasn't over the yummy savory pancakes we had at a Korean restaurant last month so I googled a recipe so I could make them at home. I picked one from allrecipes.com, but wasn't exactly happy with the results. Found the batter too watery which made the pancakes take too long to cook. :( Taste-wise, the pancakes were fine. The batter was too much though--we ended up making 4 or 5 pancakes--nakakasawa na yung lasa after a while. Some photos:
|first pancake was thick|
I don't remember how long it took to finish cooking this.
Ronjie & I were fortunate to be invited to the Filipino Community gathering with President Noynoy in Tokyo last Sunday. PNoy arrived in Japan that day for a 4-day official working visit and his first stop was meeting with the Filipino community here. We were instructed to arrive early for the event--registration was at noon--and to come in business attire (coat & tie for the men). Seats were limited, tickets were allotted 2 weeks in advance, and security was strict.

Tabehodai dinner one Saturday. The place has pasta, a salad bar, some soup and rice, but its main attraction is their dessert buffet. I love their cakes! :9
Sweets Paradise is located at the 7th Floor of the Mylord mall right outside the Hon-Atsugi train station.

September 17: The Atsugi Block Rosary comes to our home and Mother Mary stays with us for 2 weeks. What a blessing!
September 18: Atsugi Church hosts a healing mass celebrated by a Capuchin priest. The mass was also in time for the September 23 Feast of Padre Pio, a saint and a priest of the Capuchin order--so far the only priest to have received the stigmata.

|Naiintriga ako dito. There was a long queue when we passed it.|
*Note to self: Try this the next time I'm in Shibuya.
Ronjie & I went to mass at the Piarist Chapel. My first time there! It's a small and cozy place, which seats around 50.
The chapel is just a 5-10-minute walk from the Komabatodaimae Station.

Grilled chicken and veggies (asparagus and red & green bell peppers -- '-ber' na! lapit na ang Christmas!) using a recipe from Dinner: A Love Story. Yum. Never thought yogurt could be used as a marinade.
In other news, this is my first-grade cousin's activity sheet. My view is that his answer is correct and should have been accepted by his teacher. What do you think?
And here's a link to cool chlorophyll prints by a cool guy named Binh Danh.
Lastly, a couple of Garfield strips to end this post. Love them; these remind me so much of my husband. :D
Happy Birthday, Lola Cecile! :)
Happy Birthday, Steph! :)
