Feast One Hundred & Thirty Four
What is your usual bedtime? Do you like that, or would you rather it be different?
I'm a nocturnal animal - I feel most energetic at night so regular bedtime for me would be no earlier than midnight. During weekends and when I'm on vacation, I am so hyped, I have a hard time falling asleep and end up reading or watching DVDs till I see dawn break over the horizon.
When it comes to advice, do you give more or receive more?
I am usually on the receiving end of (unsolicited) advice everyday from by boss - hahaha! She always has something to say about the facts of life - regardless of whether it is applicable to those listening.
Describe a memorable meal you've had.
I just love Spanish food! I remember one time when I attended a friend's party and had the best gastronomic experience ever. Our feast consisted of jamon serrano (traditional Spanish cured ham served with chopped fresh tomato and olive oil), chorizo de pamplona (thin slices of home made cured chorizo), gambas al ajillo (shrimps sauteed in olive oil, garlic, & chili pepper), calamares fritos (deep fried squid served with aioli sauce), paella valenciana (Valencian dish with chicken, pork, seafood, & vegetables), paella pilipino (paella with sisig & cochinillo), salpicado de solomillo (chunks of tenderloin with olive oil, garlic, & Espagnole sauce), cangrejos al thang long (baked king crabs with garlic & butter sauce), lengua sevillana (stewed ox tongue with mushroom & olives in rich sherry brown sauce), cochinillo asado (tender oven roasted suckling pig) and chicken galantina (chicken galantine) topped by my favorite dessert of all time - canonigo (delectably soft melt-in-your-mouth meringue cake). I wanted to stay there forever!
Name a work of fiction that affected the way you think about something.
Paulo Coelho’s bestseller, The Alchemist. Never could forget the line that goes, “If you want something badly enough, the entire universe will conspire to give you what you want!”
What is your favorite type of fruit juice?
Lemonade and watermelon! Yum!
