Friday Five

What’s a pretty good sign that your day at work or school is going to be rough?
If I see my boss in a bad mood. Maybe my team members then felt the same way. Bosses create the atmosphere of the work environment.

What’s a pretty good sign that your day at work or school is going to be terrific?
If there would be a free food or treats! Anything extra ordinary in a day!

What’s a pretty good sign that you should probably eat out? If I need catching up with my friend and I have money to spend!

What’s a pretty good sign that you’re going to spend more money than you should? This always happens.. when Im out shopping, or basically even online shopping! Shopping is an emergency!

What’s a pretty good sign that someone you’ve just met is going to be a pretty good friend? If the first throw of conversations are light and sincere.

Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? If so, what did you do and who was your victim? Yes, back in High School, I have a partner in crime, my friend Ella. Our favorite victim is our classmate Diane, we used to tie her bag straps in her deskchair; so everytime the bell rang and she got up to pick her bag, the deskchair would go with it.


What do your salt and pepper shakers look like? Typical, glass and stainless steel covers. Im into modern and simple stuff for our kitchen.

Where is the next place you plan to visit (on vacation or business)? I plan to go to Hong Kong Disneyland this year! Just for vacation, but if my company would send me to some other place outside the country, why not?

What kind of lotion or cream do you use to keep your hands from getting too dry? I have different lotions for each part of my body. 😉 For my hands, I use Bath and Body Works.

Make up a dessert, tell us its ingredients, and give it a name. This is the cake I made back in College for our finals. I hope I remember everything right.

flour, baking powder, egg, chocolate powder, butter, salt, unsweetened chocolate, milk, sugar, strawberries.

Bake a plain chocolate cake. Make a chocolate ganache. Do layering with sponge cake and ganache. Top with strawberries! Decorate with strawberry slices on the side too! And now I would have to call it, ‘Berry Delicious Cake!
