I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Heard about the Kadayawan festivities lately? It's making a lot of noise around the metro. It's coming up soon. Actually it's kick off celebration will be this Sunday. Am I right or I am right? As far as I know, there will be a lot of activities all over again for the week-long celebration. Some will be Cultural shows, Lumad celebrations, Indak-Indak sa kadalanan, Float Parades, Hiyas ng Kadayawan and many others. We should check them all out. Let us support Philippine festivals. That is to increase the tourism rate in this poverty stricken country. Did I sound so noble? That should account for something.

I enjoyed talking to them. I was glad that Jovi appreciated my art work when he browsed my sketch pad. They even took a picture of it. That pinkie promise also reminded me of something. That promises are really important for them.
* 2 tablespoons sea salt
* 4 cups cold water
* 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped
* 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
* 1 tablespoon green onion, finely chopped
* 2 teaspoons dried chili pepper flakes
* 2 teaspoons sugar
* 1 tablespoon sea salt
Separate and wash the cabbage leaves.
Sprinkle them with the 2 tbsp of salt.
Place them in a non corrosive dish (Pyrex) and pour in the 4 cups cold water, cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge over night.
The water should cover the leaves if not place a heavy object on them to keep them submerged.
After sitting overnight pour off the water and rinse the leaves well, shake out excess moisture. ( I used my lettuce dryer to remove the extra moisture).
Mix the garlic, ginger, green onion,chili flakes,sugar & 1 tbsp salt, stir together.
Pour 11/2 cups of very hot water over the mixed seasoning.
Place cabbage leaves in a large zip lock bag or in a bowl, pour in the seasoning, mix well so the seasoning is on every leaf.
Place in the fridge for two days. Flip the bag every time you open the fridge door.
To serve cut the leaves into 2" strips and serve as a side condiment.
To store pack the cabbage into a jar and store in the fridge it will keep for several days to a week or more.
I hope I could meet them again somewhere. I would love to know their culture more. Knowing different cultures is really one of a kind. I just love talking to people from different races. I love it when I introduce my culture to others and vice versa.
After the conversation we had, i realized how I love my course. Communication arts is really my passion. I will never trade my course for anything better than it, for I think it's the best ever.

I was cross examined. It didn't do any pressure to me except for the extreme coolness of the room. I wasn't able to speak normally because my jaws are trembling. Of course it's not because I was nervous. That was so embarrassing. Good thing they didn't actually notice it. But I'm not quite sure about that.
One more thing I have to let out is that I can rest without worries tonight! Hollers out! Exams for this week are done. This week is really one heck of a tiring week. I had my head ache because it's too drained to think about academics. At last I'm going to have a break at exactly 5:30 this afternoon! Let me hear you scream!
This day is a seventh heaven for me. I think I ought to say that. And you ought to know that! Get your freak on fellas!
