Galantina: a Family Tradition

It is a tradition in our family to always have galantina as one of the dishes prepared during the Christmas Season. Apparently, the recipe came from my paternal grandfather’s family and has been passed down the family line. Currently, my aunt, the eldest, is the one preparing it. And as for me, the eldest in my generation, will be contributing to the family tradition by …recording the recipe for posterity(=`〜´=).

Plans for the Holidays

Term break has just begun and I’m already exhausted / buried benath the pile of things I need and want to do during the break from school. On top of that list of things to do is arranging my books and its already giving me a headache. I plan on making a database so I can kep track of my books. However, I am not that familiar with MS Access, having only used it once during my biostat class. As of now, I’ll try building a simple flatfile database using the mobile apps available and try to create a relational database on my pc once I’ve catalogued everything.

One thing I’ve learned is that if i try to do evrything all at once I’ll never finish anything. That is why I’m going to focus on doing one task at a time, hoping to finish everything before the new term starts. Wish me luck!

and by the way, I’ll try to be more active here on wordpress during the holidays as one of the items on the to do list. But that will come on its own time. 😆

I am me, I am me
A song for just the two of us
I am me, I am me
A song for just the two of us

I am me, I am me
I was born this way for you

An anonymously written song of love

幾百余年経つも朽ちずに / iku hyaku yo nen tatsumo kuchizu ni
Over hundreds of years, (it has remained) without rotting

And still makes this heart tremble (touch of heart)

Merry Christmas!

Its the Christmas season once again. However, here at our house, nay, neighborhood, the mood is a bit subdued. aside from the occasional caroling by the neighborhood kids, things are very quiet.


Even for myself, I cannot feel the Christmas season. for one thing, I am currently busy with the back log of work that I must complete before the 26th (sorry my students, I am still arranging, checking and computing your performances)OTZ. Last year too, was a bleak Christmas for me. I was busy with exams, thesis and other requirements for graduation. I was not able to go to the annual overnight with my friends that year as well as this year!


But amid all the caroling, partying, eating of noche buena, spending of Christmas bonus, giving and receiving gifts, let us not forget the real meaning of Christmas and why we are celebrating this day every year.


Once again, Merry Christmas everyone!
