Sick Of Chocolate

I've been sick for a few days now because I ate this...
My husband got them last Friday and I had some, even though I know I develop allergies when I eat something sweet. I know, it sucks. Good thing I'm not really fond of sweets, just sometimes when I want a cup of hot chocolate or a slice of leche flan or cheesecake... but I'd rather have savory than sweet. I just don't like being sick.

Having A Little Fun In The Kitchen

Got these egg molds a while back, found them at a specialty kitchenware store. They are so cute and adorable - hard to use with eggs but perfect for pancakes.
Haven't gotten the hang of it yet but I will :)
Just add some butter, maple syrup and some banana slices - it'll make a pretty breakfast...

Electronic Haul

We have been frequenting our local electronic retailer to get some stuff for my husband's family. Got a Dell Inspiron laptop and Nikon Coolpix camera for my sis-in-law (who loves anything pink), a Nikon L120 for dad-in-law and Sony Cyber-shot for bro-in-law.
Hope they like our early Christmas gifts, in addition to the three balikbayan boxes that we already sent a while back.

Decompressing My Shoe Closet

I got rid of 18 pairs of shoes because they no longer fit in my closet. Living in a small apartment really pushes you to edit your belongings. Plus my husband keeps complaining of the stray shoes I have lying around... Probably half of the shoes I had to part with I've only used a couple of times. Of course, they went to a good cause :)
I use a bookcase (about 6 feet tall) for a shoe cabinet, because I can't afford to have a walk-in closet like Mariah's. I just covered it with an old shower curtain so it wouldn't be disgusting to look at, hehe...
Now this is what's left of my meager but much loved collection. Trimmed down significantly but still a little full. But seriously, I only have two feet, how many pairs could I possibly need?
I need to find a way to organize boots, they're awkward to store and takes up too much space when upright... Ideas anyone?
