Yum! I am craving for sweets! After being deprived of some and more because of my almost 2 month old braces, I am now ready to get some soft and sweet things like this one in the photo! Baklavah! Unfortunately, I don’t know any pastry or cake shop that sells it here – I mean the best so far is in Cebu at Tinderbox. I had 3 slices the first time I went there, the 2nd time I had to take home some, the 3rd – well it slipped my mind due to other distractions. So now, I am craving for it. I heard of the Greek and Turkish Baklavah, haven’t tasted one, but from what I’ve heard – it’s like sin! I might check on some recipes and try to do it on my own. As usual, I only know how to make Tiramisu and No Bake Fudge Brownies, and don’t forget pancakes and waffles. Cake and Baking is like Art, and I only know how to appreciate them I checked on some photos and stumbled into Aileen Apollo’s Baklavah Recipe and Tips, appreciate it. I find the instructions really friendly…
The Air That We Breathe
Can you imagine inhaling a very bad carbon dioxide?
Isn’t that flammable? The brain cell gets toasted, suddenly losing trigonometry and physics from high school.
It can make you dumb or stupid – I embraced that thought ever since I was a kid. Of course, that is not the case – not deadly and won’t make one dumb, but is not an excuse to release one in a room full of people.
I don’t plan to discuss “farting and carbon dioxide” in this article, however, it is very relative to breathing and living.
Human take in oxygen and emits carbon dioxide which is beneficial to other species – plants to be exact. If we take in something that is not beneficial to us, then it is harmful. Unfortunately for humans, we don’t wither and die easily if we take in something harmful – cigarette, alcohol, spoiled food, bacteria and viruses – our system fight and it makes health struggle, we die slow and painful. We get cancer of all types and diseases of different kind.
In order to make us immune and healthy – we supply our system with enough Vitamins and health boosting supplements, eat and live a healthy lifestyle, and manage to see our family doctor for regular check up.
Are we guaranteed a long and healthy life then? No. Ouch! That’s a lot of spending and health conscious effort! Read the rest of this entry
