Kuchisabishii (口寂しい)

By Tin Gallemaso - 3:24:00 AM

Word of the day: Kuchisabishii (Japanese) means that feeling when you're not hungry but you eat because your mouth is lonely.

Bakit ba tawang tawa ko dyan? Kasi totoo? 😆

Matcha Cream Puff in Quezon City

This is available every Sunday at Denden's Baking Room.

It took us quite a while to find the "perfect mix" for the matcha on top. We had to experiment using several matcha brands that are available here in PH. I'm picky when it comes to the taste of matcha that's why I'm kilig that those who ordered liked these as well. Tintin approved 'yan. I swear sa kaadikan ko sa matcha na isang dekada na po akong meron. 😆


Probably the reason why I got some of my friends hooked as well is because after a few years, I'd sell matcha topped cream puffs to them. HAHAHA! We have four flavors but obviously, I'm really biased to matcha so k.

Tama na commercial... 😂


PLANTITA?!

Picking fresh basil leaves for homemade pesto sauce. Pinigilan ako nyan sa isusuot kasi mukha raw akong tanga pero syempre wala silang nagawa. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Kukuha lang ng dahon naka-sweater, turban at shades pa at color coordinated. Kung di ka ba naman OA, Tintin. Pero may grapes din kasi kami kaya ako nag ganyan kasi nakakamiss na gumala kaya isipin na lang nasa Napa Valley ng Autumn pero pictorial lang pala sa taas ng bahay. HAHAHA! 


People close to me know that I can be crazy but not everyone sees that side of me. Nahiya ako bigla hahahahaha kasi for sure sa kanila tanggap na nila 'yang baliw pero 'yung iba, nagsisimula pa lang ma-weirduhan. 

Hindi talaga ko masyado nagpo-post sa Facebook dati (gala at blog events lang usually) kasi nabubuking 'yung kabaliwan/kabangagan ko pero nadalas ako mag post nung nag simula 'yang Denden's Baking Room kasi kailangan ng SNS presence. HAHAHA! Kapalit ng exposure ni Denden 'yung pagkatao ko... char! Kala mo hindi nagsusulat dito e noh? But to my defense, hindi naman kasi nakikita 'tong blog ko kung hindi sasadyain puntahan unlike sa FB na walang choice mga nasa friend's list kundi makita 'yung posts. Kaya okay lang maging weird (at emotional) dito, di mo naman ako jina-judge, diba? Luh. Para saan pang BFFs tayo kung may judgments pala rito? 😞


Singing Moana
'yung isa na nga lang talent mo, takot pa lahat ng kapitbahay

Moana is a rescue dog and this month is her first anniversary with me. ❤️ I had to help her rehabilitate her hind legs since she couldn't walk properly last year. We also watched YouTube videos of howling huskies for her to learn. She still has a fear of cages and sometimes has nightmares but there's definitely a lot of improvement. HAHAHA! Nasobrahan sa singing skills ang bb ko. 😂 Lagi tuloy kami napapagalitan kasi ang ingay niya lalo kapag naririnig 'yung boses ko, nakikita ako o tuwing tinatawag ako. Siya background noise doon sa mukbang video na ginawa namin last time. 



Instagram for homecooked meals: xtintina.cooks

Last night, I decided to create another Instagram account specifically for my homecooked meals. This is where I'll be compiling/uploading all the photos of the food I made.

Tayo pa lang may alam nito. Ayoko pa mag follow ng mga tao na kakilala ko. Sa Denden's Baking Room saka personal account ko na xtintina lang ako naka-follow. HAHAHAHA! Me, myself, and I ang peg.


I miss attending blog events and uploading food photos. So I'm uploading my own while those kind of gatherings are on pause. I'm currently thinking that I'd put recipes in the captions - an attempt to standardize the recipes I use but knowing me and my tendencies to not follow recipes 100%, pictures na lang talaga mailalagay dyan. Also, this in hopes to improve my food photography and styling skills.😂😂😂


Unstoppable ka, ghorl?

10 months CGM!

It wasn't that obvious in the last photos I uploaded since those were curly hair days but photos above are from a wavy day so you can notice the layered haircut. Ano ba 'to? Uploading selfies at every chance I get??? HAHAHA! 'Yan na totoong big hair don't care. Several years ago pag ganyan tignan buhok ko, pakiramdam ko ang pangit. Well, 'yan na rin siguro epekto ng kakainom ko ng beer. Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder, diba? Tawa please. Nag joke ako. 😂

Pero totoo, maganda na buhok ko ngayon para sa'kin kahit ang laki tignan, hindi ko na kailangan ng hair treatment sa salon. 😂 Akalain ko namang dadating 'tong araw na 'to. Wow! May acceptance na, Tintin. 💗


Spent a night out last holiday.

A friend texted me and asked me to hang out with our other friends but obviously, I wasn't home. He then told me that we should go cycling on another day instead. I agreed as long as sundo't hatid niya ako sa bahay 'cause I'm too scared to leave home alone while riding a bicycle. 

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving. 

I used to bike around with different guy friends before. They know my pacing and they'd always adjust to me so it was never scary. I was a bit apprehensive to go cycling again since this was the first time that I went biking with that person and it has been years since I've last ridden. This has always been a fun activity for me, I even forgot that I developed a fear of riding a bicycle/motorcycle the past two years. Yes to conquering fears 'cause this is definitely not the last time for this activity. I'll take more photos during our next cycling sesh. Sana maabutan na namin ang isawan. Hahaha! 

Surrounding still feels unsafe especially since COVID cases here in QC are not declining but we made sure that we weren't near other people while we were out.

She was beautifully out of place.
Sometimes I believe she intended to be.
Like the moon during the day. 

will be uploading the rest of my Autumn 2019 trip in the coming days since it's autumn once again.

SIX MONTHS NA PALA TAYO SA QUARANTINE? GOSH!!!! Kaya pala naubusan na ko ng sasabihin na ka-dramahan ko sa buhay. 😂  

I am aware that a lot of my previous posts have been very personal 'cause I wanna have something to look back to. I'm writing about this even if this phase is one of the hardest and most confusing chapter of my our story. Still haven't figured everything out but I want to remember that in the midst of these all, there are moments of clarity and optimism. This phase is crucial in teaching me us a lot of things especially about who I am and who I'm not who we are and who we're not. Kailangan kasi 'yung current emotions e mailagay na lahat para mga three to five years later, babalikan ko 'to tapos mag cringe na lang ako. HAHAHA. Pinagsasabi ko ba? 😅

Universe, help me understand once again that I can't control everything. There's fear but there's hope. I'm loosening up. Letting go. Relinquishing control. I know that being in control isn't always a good thing so I'll take the backseat and once again let life happen. Slowly accepting that this is now our reality and that I should concentrate on taking the appropriate steps from here even if I don't see a bigger picture yet. 

At least ngayon, hindi man balik sa dati e may kaunting progress ata. Inaayos naman ulit. At sana, umayos na nga lalo 'yung pandemic. 


Things will get better!
God bless. 💕
