Inspired by my recent trip to Belize and Guatemala and Mexican street food cooking class at Jamie Oliver's Recipease.

Wanted to make a tapas style dinner for mama, so picked up a few ingredients for this that seemed would go together well. The result was delicious :)

  • 6 scallops
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Small piece of fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • A handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped.
  • Coriander leaves to garnish
  • Some butter for frying
  1. Mix the lemon juice, coriander and ginger in a small bowl.
  2. Rinse the scallops, pat dry with paper towel.
  3. Add the scallops to the bowl, make sure they are covered with marinade. Leave for 15 minutes or longer.
  4. Heat butter in a frying pan. When the melted butter starts to bubble, pick out the scallops and fry.
  5. When the scallops are cooked as you like them (3-5 minutes is the time usually recommended in recipes, but I go with whatever feels right), serve right away and garnish with a few coriander leaves.
  6. Enjoy!

Happy again :)

Still a little stressed about changes, but well within reasonable limits :)

And holy moly really making an effort to fatten up after losing 4? 5? kilos accidentally. O shit I'm disappearing :-O

I legit don't know how this happened - one day I was making faces at my chubby cheek face in the mirror and the next day people started telling me I lost weight.  Am I stressed? Do I have some ghastly tropical disease? (but I haven't touched a koala lately)
Oh sugar. Honey honey~~
Seriously though, I missed the opportunity to use my shiny "brb canada" tag :( um.. like a few months ago *blush* Ah well. Just gotta remember next time.

oh honey oooh sugar sugarCollapse )

So 2 and a half days is all I can do until I get lonely ^_^


The sun is going down on me
As she surrenders to the sea
So steal the night and fly with me
I'm calling, I'm calling

The moon is high on me and you
Is my message breaking through?
Darkened skies that once were blue are falling
So hear me now

Calling out your name
Burning on the flame
Played the waiting game
Hear my calling
Hear my calling

~~Reason will not lead to solution
I will end up lost in confusion~~


Any bets how long I last until switching to old Russian songs from the 50s and start crying?

Okay so it's not Dr Jackson, more like Michael Shanks who plays Daniel Jackson in SG1 but who cares. My two shows have collided in a wonderful and unexpected way. This S5 of SPN calling~~ 

One day when I have time on my hands, maybe when I'm there I'll make a chart-graph thingy, Untangle-style of the actors from my shows who have guest starred in other shows.

"There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark."

Why does someone announcing their belief or disbelief in the existence of heaven makes headlines?

Whether you are a scientist, a priest, a president, a person of another profession or unemployed, you can't prove that heaven exists or doesn't exist. Announcing your belief doesn't make a difference to anyone, unless you provide some new evidence that supports it.

Mr Hawking's personal beliefs are being touted as substantial and influential because he is a prolific scientist. Does this mean that if the word's best chef announces that he believes that Heidi the cross-eyed possum is God we should take it as a statement from an expert in the matter and not just an expression of personal belief from human?

Mr Hawking should stick to his area of expertise.

Hope everyone has the most wonderful, warm and amazing Christmas!!!
  • I'm letting things get to me too much.
  • Things are not so good
  • I care too much
  • Things are broken
  • I am broken
  • Some.thing.one.who.what.where.when.why is fragile
  • [my enter key is dodgy]
  • It's that time of the year - - - rewind to the time when I turned 18 - is this it?
  • I want to go home
  • I am not feeling Christmassy at all
  • Sad panda
  • Things are okay...
  • ...or so it seems
  • Right now I am hungry
  • I feel like I'm screwing up
  • I feel alone and scared.
I don't know what's wrong with me. And why I keep feeling like this. I was so happy just a week ago. from 28th till last weekend I was positively bouncy and ridiculously happy. Now the roller coaster is heading down~
