Bakit Hindi Ka Dapat Magpaligaw


Masyadong marami pero sasabihin ko na yung pinaka dahilan kung bakit hindi pwede: Kasi ang panliligaw ay maihahalintulad sa pamimilit.

Hindi ako bitter pero baka hindi ka na rin magpaligaw pagkatapos kong ipaliwanag sayo.

Ang panliligaw marahil ang pinaka-unang hakbang upang magsimula ang isang matibay na pagsasama. Kung dito pa lang sa parteng ito ay magkakamali ka na, siguradong malaki ang magiging epekto nito sa pagsasama niyong dalawa.

Ganito ang istilo ng mga kalalakihan sa panahon ngayon:

1. Pag-Obserba
Kikilalanin ka niya. Marahil bilang isang kaibigan o pag-silip sa Facebook mo. Maari rin sa pagtatanong sa mga tao sa paligid mo. Sa pagkakataong ito ay oobserbahan niya ang iyong kaugalian, estado, kultura, minsan relihiyon, pisikal na pangangatawan, at ang iyong ideal partner. Pag pasado ka, susunod na ang pag-bago niya sa sarili.

2. Pagbago sa sarili
Pipilitan niyang i-adjust ang sarili upang mapansin at magustuhan mo siya. Siya ang magiging ideal guy mo at tiyak na magugustuhan mo siya. At kung sakali namang hindi niya magawa yung ibang mahirap na aspeto (gaya ng pangangatawan), bibigyan ka niya ng ideya na magpapabago sa kagustuhan mo. Halimbawa “Pangit din pag may abs kasi chick magnet. E pag medyo mataba, masarap yakapin.”

3. Panliligaw
Ito ang step kung saan ipapakita niya sa’yo na may interes siya sayo at gusto niyang maging parte ka ng buhay niya. At dahil siya na nga ang ideal guy mo, papayag ka magpaligaw. At sa loob ng maikling panahon na pagpapakilala niya sayo bilang taong pinapangarap mo, ay mahuhulog ka sa kanya.

Wala namang problema doon kung mapapanatili niya ang sarili niya bilang taong hindi totoong siya hanggang sa pag-tanda niyo. Paglumabas ang tunay niyang kulay matapos ang ilang buwan o taon, may pagkakataong ka pa upang ayusin ang lahat. Yoon nga lang, maraming mga araw na ang nasayang. Nakapanghihinayang kung sa loob ng maikling panahon na kasama mo ang maling tao, ay siya namang nagpakita sayo yung totoong taong para sayo. Masasabi kong swerte ka pa. Isipin mo ngayon kung inilabas niya ang tunay niyang pagkatao after ng kasal niyo. Mas malaking problema, diba?

Ganito na lang. Trust your instincts. Sa iyong imahinasyon, gumawa ka ng ideal guy mo. Itsura, estado, ugali, at lahat ng aspetong masasabi mong mapapa-ibig kang talaga. Ang mundo ay may Pitong bilyong tao na may 1:1 ratio, imposibleng hindi mo mahanap ang ideal guy mo. At kung hindi mo siya makita, marahil hindi pa ito ang tamang oras para makilala mo ang taong magpapatibok ng puso mo.

Kung nahanap mo naman na si Mr.Right, ipagtapat mo sa kanya ang tunay mong nararamdaman at wag mo siyang pakawalan. Ingatan mo siya at huwag mong sasaktan. Tandaan mo na kung mutual ang feelings niyo, madali kayong magkakasundo at magkakaunawaan. Ano man ang gawin niyo ay matatanggap ng isa’t-isa.

Hindi niya kailangang manligaw dahil nagpapa-impress lang naman siya sa’yo. Hindi niya pinapakita ang totoong pagkatao niya, bagkos, ipinapakita niya ang taong gusto mong makita sa kanya. Nararapat lamang na magustuhan mo siya sa totoong pagkatao niya at hindi sa pagpapanggap niya.

“before I lose it and bite down”



Have you ever seen a very sexy person (man or woman) that’s so sexy, you just wanna bite ’em down? I mean, literally?

This could be the creepiest story I can share to you. Until now, I don’t know if it’s a good thing but I happen to talk to a stranger who think he has a mental disorder of Cannibalism some time last year. If you think about it, it’s kinda creepy yet interesting so I want to share it with you. I suddenly remember this guy when I was checking my Facebook and saw these photos of sexy girls posing for a magazine. So I quickly checked my sound recordings file on my phone to see if my record of his story is still there. I’m surprised that the file is still there and renamed it ‘Before I lose it and bite down’.

I started recording a bit late but it’s okay since the first part of our conversation is just introductions with common topics.

*recording starts*
him: -before I lose it and bite down…
me: I’m sorry. You were once what again?
him: currently hungry.
me: no. I mean your situation.
him: ah! The cannibalism you mean? I think it started few years ago. You know when you suddenly feel hungry while looking at people. Mine is when I look at some photos of sexy and attractive girls like Ellen Adarna. She’s sexy, right? She’s like….every man’s dream. But as I stare longer, my stomach begins to feel empty like it’s pressing down deeper and I become really hungry. I never felt so hungry like that. It doesn’t happen to me when I look at the photos of my crush or other sexy girls before. But now whenever I see sexy photos of thick thighs drenched in heat, and white cleavage trapped in a fit shirt, I’m beginning to feel very hungry. TBH (to be honest) it scares me, especially when I begin to tell myself “I wonder what it taste like if I bite down on them.” At first I thought I was just hungry, until it happened frequently whenever I see girls like them. I imagine swallowing the bitten part without chewing down and hitting my tummy inside. Oh~ It must’ve feel satisfyingly good.

I suddenly felt the urge to pick up my phone on the table and run away as fast as I can. Then he starts talking again.

him: I know you’re already scared. I can see the hair in your arms raising. *grin* But this sickness is somehow selective. I only feel like it when I look at beautiful girls with fair white skin, showy cleavage of a kind-of-big chest in a tight shirt, and smooth legs.

As if he described what I look like on that day. It feels weird and unsafe near him. I don’t know what to say so I just looked at him.

I know I might get jailed for this but somehow, I feel like I can trust you. Besides, in the end of the day, this is just another story and I’m sure this is the last time we will see each other. Telling this to a girl who’s actually a potential meal for cravings like mine and getting off unharmed is a good sign that I didn’t lose it and didn’t bite down. I’m hungry but you’re still okay. You should…

*recording stops*

For the record, that’s the creepiest 1 minute and 46 seconds of my life. I approached him and made him really hungry. It must’ve been a great stomachache for him enduring the urge to bite. To fill the missing part, he just told me I might felt emotionally attacked after hearing what he said but I will soon forget this in time which is what happened. In fact, I already forgot about it as soon as I board the bus. Remembering he thanked me for staying even though I’m obviously scared makes me smile and feel brave.

I’m currently in the state of rejuvenating my skin from sunburn last week. Aside with my toasted skin arms, everything that happened for 3 days in Caramoan Island is absolutely amazing! Let me share you what happened so if there’s still at least 3 days remaining in your vacation, you can still visit Caramoan Islands.

Let me share to you my adventure and the secrets of Caramoan Islands.


The Caramoan Peninsula is located at Camarines Sur, near the City of Naga. The municipality covers approximately 277.41 sq.kilometers with approximately 41 miles of irregular coastline surrounded by the vast ocean, bay, seas, and swamps. It is 500 kilometers from Metro Manila which gives you a hint that you’ll be spending almost half of your day travelling by bus. A real pain in the butt. But looking info and photos in the internet is nothing compared to the real experience, so we planned our adventure and immediately booked a trip to Naga City to make this out-of-town before it become straight out-of-paper(a drawing).

We got a tour guide and settled all the payments including food, a place to sleep, and a boat that can take us to the islands. As the day finally came, we packed our gears, charged our gadgets, and board the bus going Naga City.

There are 2 ways to get to Caramoan: You can either ride a plane to avoid the dancing PUVs and busses on zigzag and cliff-sides, or spend a night riding a bus then: tricycle, van, boat, and van again to reach the ideal Villas of Caramoan. Plane is the fastest way to get there but it’s very expensive. The boat is big. It can accommodate 1 whole bus passengers in one trip.

The boat ride is more than 2 hours. You can’t feel the sunny weather because of the cold breeze from the vast sea. The boat constantly slows down whenever we go near an island over very low waters. The crewmen are so careful not to hit the sea floor and the starfishes around.

The next day, our tour guide came to pick us up. We arrived to check-in at La Vila De Leonila Tourist Inn, Caramoan. The area is booming with tourist inns, beer houses, sea food restaurants, and souvenir shops. Upon walking around, we noticed that some shops have a distinctive familiar merchandise of Survivor Philippines.

We got there late and missed the chance to check the nearby islands. But there’s still time so after an hour of resting, we set sail and managed to visit 2 of the 5 islands on the list: The Laos Island and Matukad Island. The Laos Island is like 2 small islands divided by sand bar while Matukad Island is the home to the two mythical Bangus (milkfish). According to the Legend, no one knows how the fresh water fishes get in that mysterious lagoon and how they survived for a long time.

The next day, we climbed the Mt. Caglago – Grotto of Our Lady of Peace, Bugtong Island. We endured the 500+ steps and reached the top with 360 view of Caramoan. Then jumped to the next island of floating cottages to eat our lunch, the Manlawi Island with 2 hectares of Sand Bar during low tide, holding the record of the biggest sand bar in the Philippines. you can literally walk on water. After lunch, our boatmen showed their boat-driving skill to avoid hitting stones and sea creatures to get us close to Guinahoan Island and see a real light house up-close. After that, we chose Cotivas Island as our final Island for our wondrous adventure before heading back to the inn.

Our tour guide was planning to visit a specific island where tourists are not allowed to take photos. But unfortunately, the visiting window is too narrow (plus we’re a bunch of rule-breakers too). This should be a secret island but locals will tell it to you anyway. I won’t tell you, so that you will discover it yourself. The souvenir shops, the amount of foreigners, and the flags will tell you. Something that proves the beauty of our islands internationally. A secret that will keep Caramoan a top tourist destination for decades.

On our 3rd and last day, we visited the old town church to thank God and ask for protection on our long journey back to our homes. We bought pasalubongs and souvenirs and finally said goodbye to the inn keepers of the villa at Caramoan, and to our awesome tour guide.

It’s one of the best adventures of my life. The effort and budget I gave is worth it. I wish I can show everything to you, but like what I’ve said, info and photos in the internet is nothing compared to the real experience. If you’re going there, do me a favor:

“Be a responsible tourist and please keep the secret.” okay?

Special thanks to my friends (you guys know who you are), to the people of La Villa De Leonila Tourist Inn, to our 2 rocking boatmen, and to our Tour guide Sir.Macky (0918-678-1103 or 0905-230-4464).

The Barkada Outing Attendance

Summer isn’t over and there are still places in your bucket list you need to visit on the next coming weekends. Bags are packed, Summer destinations are set, gadgets fully charged, and the day will never be complete without your friends! This is gonna be one amazing summer vacation because the officials of the team are present. And I’m sure, if your Barkada’s officials are present, every minute of your adventure’s gonna be great.

Since the outing is not a “drawing” anymore, let’s start naming these “officials” before hitting the beach. Here are the Barkada Outing Attendance.

Super Gran – The oldest, the most sensible, and the leader of the group. Super Gran is the grand daddy, the big brother, the final say, the one responsible for the actions of his best pals. He’s often the party starter and the house owner where the Barkada will round up before going out-of-town.

The Joker – He’s the life of the party. He will start everything with a punchline. A simple smirk and everyone will laugh. The group is dead without this guy. Everyone will agree and he won’t to crack a joke. Every time he talks, you will expect a joke following it. It could be a green joke, a smart joke, or a serious one but you will still blast a giant laugh because you thought it’s funny but it’s really serious.

DJ – This friend of yours has the most loudest speaker on her phone. Often a young and stylish lady, this girl have watched every single music video on the topic. She also wears earphones on her neck playing music in 100% which sounds like 75% of your phone volume. Her playlist could be chaotic but she knows which are reggae, kpop, mellow, and rock.

The Thinker – The serious type. This guys spends his journey sitting on the back seat. He could be the one among the group that isn’t laughing when the joker starts to talk that’s why most of the time getting roasted by the joker. He might be quiet but he is a very important person in the team. Days before the outing, you’ll see Super Gran talking to this guy for suggestions and recommendations. An adviser.

Baggage Counter – We sometimes call this guy as ‘Brando’, a wight-lifter, athlete, tall, dark and handsome hunk. The tank of the battle party. He will gladly accept the favor of carrying the excess bags of the ladies. He’s the selfie stick of the group because he has long arms. He can also also piggy-back everyone who’s tired except,

Fridge – the most heavy-weight among the group. He’s the sumo wrestler, she’s the ‘Babe in the City’. This person carries big bags of food but always getting worn-out carrying them. As heavy as real fridge, but reliable when you need an emergency snack. I don’t why but whenever the Fridge is a woman, she’s around 5’1 or 5′ flat in height with 25 or 26 of foot size which is the main reason why these guys always fell when the group is doing a mile hike.

Photographer – It’s always important to bring a camera when going out-of-town but the best camera is nothing without the skillful photographer. He takes picture of everything. Friends, landscape, sea shells, neighbors, skeletons, etc. He’s your friend who’s carrying a distinct bag that he often covers with his body when it’s about to get hit, or raising on the top of his head with full strength when walking on a 3-feet water. He has this expensive camera that costs his college semester tuition fee and he’s gonna die protecting it.

The Cat – The person who shouldn’t be here in the first place. This particular member of the group was just in school an hour ago and now spending a summer vacation with you guys in a remote island miles and miles away. That’s right, she’s currently snorkeling wearing her school uniform. “Ikaw, san aabot ang vacant mo?”

Counter-terrorist – Or sometimes called “Terrorist” depending if he looks like a Taliban. He’s the combat expert. The group’s security guard. He wears camouflage all the time. You can’t actually tell whether he’s going for a tour in an island or the battle zone of Scarborough Shoal. He carries flashlight, army knives, taser, probably a concealable pistol with live rounds in case of real trouble.

The Rich Kid – The Rich kid is wealthier than any of your family wealth combined. Even wealthier than Super Gran. This kid’s so rich if it isn’t it a government property, she’ll purchase it (Or maybe that’s exaggerated). She’s rich, alright? She” join the adventure with a big space on her bag -for souvenirs of course. She might be techie with gadgets she bought online a week ago for the trip. She doesn’t brought much since she can buy what she needs on the area. “I’m sure there’s a store there somewhere.”

Jail-bait – The youngest but look like the same age with Super Gran. The first girl to be approached by the flirts. Her oldest age is 17 but look 28 on her 16. If she approached you, you’ll get jailed. If you approached her, you’ll get jailed. Plus a kick on the face by Brando. That’s better than NATO rounds, right?

Tour-guide – If the tour guide is one of your friends, I’m sure this person have reached many places with the big chance that he already visited your next destination twice. He knows the area and you guys will never be lost as long as you have this walking Dora’s Map. He blends in with locals as if he  grew up with them. He speaks and understand 9 local dialects in the Philippines even if we have only 8. But his monthly travels made his skin very dark because of sun burn which helps him look like one of the locals. I’m not a racist but inside a Barkada, there’s always that “well-done” friend.

And now that the officials of Barkada are all aboard, let’s hit the beach!

The 10 must haves in your bag before going on a vacation



Summer’s here!

It’s the time for weekly outdoor activities! Mountain climbing, swimming, biking, and lots of stuff aside sitting in front of the internet and reading fictional stories like what you’re doing 2 minutes ago. Get out! Time to have fun.

But before you pack those swimwear and fridge in your bag, here are some basic needs you should have this summer.

  1. Sun Screen
    If there’s something that your bag should have not just in summer, that’s the sun screen. Why? because science, my friend. The world’s getting warmer each year and countries near the equator are experiencing hot temperature under the rain. Isn’t that weird? Now imagine if it’s sunny day.
  2. Bottled Water
    Water. Not juice, not Ion energy drink, not coffee. WATER! Going under water, does not mean you’ll never get dehydrated. When you take a bath, you get dehydrated, pretty much the same with swimming. You sweat even under water, plus the sun heat that can fry an egg in minutes.
  3. Sun Glasses
    Do you wear glasses under the sun? I have a good fact here. Wearing a spectacle does amplify the sun’s harmful rays especially when you look directly to the sun. It doubles the radiation from a larger area than a 1mm diameter pupil through the eye’s pupil. That’s why optic shops offer graded glasses with Transition. Besides, you’re not in the beach for sole purpose of reading a book, right?
  4. Power Banks
    Or any reliable power source for that matter. Technology is everywhere and some of them are made for isolate areas but they do still rely on electricity for power. You can buy many types of renewable energy power source online now.
  5. Resealable Bag
    Resealable bags are basically plastic bags that can be sealed. We cannot just leave our devices like phones, earphones, and other gadgets behind so we have no other choice but to bring them with us, even underwater. This is where resealable bags come in handy. You can also use them for your wet clothes or food.
  6. Survival Kit
    You’ll never know when the bad luck struck. Survival Kit includes thin long ropes, pocket knife, flash light, whistle, lighter, crackers, and ion water -All of which are neatly stored in a small compact pouch.
  7. First-Aid Kit
    Because no matter how careful you are, accidents do happen. And your medical kit just got the right equipment to do the job. Like the survival kit, it’s compact. It carries your medicine for common sicknesses like headache, pain, and itchiness.
  8. Back-up Phone
    This phone doesn’t have to be an iPhone. A simple phone capable to texting and calling will do. A phone that’s when got wet, it’s okay because you just got it for free -kind of phone. This particular phone should be fully charged whether you’re in a summer vacation or just at home. It’s purpose is to call for help in-case you got lost or stranded somewhere. These kind of phones also have a build-in flash light. So cute.
  9. Hygiene Kit
    Toothbrush, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, cologne, razor(if you’re not boarding a flight), feminine wash (for girls), facial cleanser, and mouth wash. Some inns doesn’t even have a good toilet room, what makes you think they will offer a free hygiene kit for their guests? And finally,
  10. Condoms
    Really. I’m serious. It’s more useful than just for sexual protection. Condoms are like balloons. They’re made of rubber, waterproof, and handy.
    (Just trust me, alright!? Put it in your bag! Ha! Ha!)

Now that all of the real necessities are inside the bag, you may now put your clothes in, extra socks, shoes, hats, extra money or whatever. It should only occupy 1/4th of your 10x12x12 (LxWxH) backpack. Remember, all of this are nothing if you’re not mentally prepared for anything. Your greatest equipment that can cover it all is your brain. Use it wisely.

Paano Niya Sinira ang Relationship Niyo


Ayan. At nandito na nga tayo sa puntong wala na kayong tiwala sa isa’t-isa. Dati’y kayo ang sumisimbolo ng forever na ipinagmamalaki ng mga kaibigan nyo. #WalangForverBREAKER! Ngayon nandito ka sa dulo kung saan naghahanap ka ng kasagutan sa tanong na

“Saan ako nagkamali?”

Buti nalang at biniyayaan ka ng internet upang mahanap ang sagot bago mahuli ang lahat. Hayaan mong sabihin ko sayo kung ano, or rather “sino” ang dahilan kung bakit nasira ang  pagmamahalan nyo. Kung sa tingin mo walang sino man ang may kinalaman sa pagkasira ng matibay ninyong pagmamahalan, think again. Malakas ang power of influence, maniwala ka.


Ang relationship ay parang DEAL. Pag hindi kayo nagkasundo sa umpisa, 99% lalagpak sa malamig na semento ang kinabukasan nyo. Hindi pwede ang adjustment. Para ninyong niloloko ang sarili nyo non kasi hindi yan parang relehiyon na pinanganak kang Katoliko at matapos ang labing-anim na taon ay binautismuhan ka bilang Born-Again Christian nung nalingat ang parents mo noong isang Linggo. Ano man ang gagawin ninyong adjustment ay kalaunang babalik sa dati at lalabas ang inyong mga tunay na kulay. Yung 1% para lang yun sa mga taong handang tanggapin ang lahat. Mga taong may satisfaction sa buhay. Alam naman nating bibihira lang ang mga taong ganoon.

At eto ka, nagtatanong kung saan ka nagkamali at tila iiwan ka niya. Ang totoo, masyado mong inadjust ang sarili mo. Isinara mo ang pinto at nag-focus sa inyong dalawa ng partner mo. Nakalimutan mong tumingin sa mga tao sa paligid mo at hindi mo sila nabantayan.

Ito lang naman ang sistematikong ginawa ng taong sumira ng pagmamahalan niyo:

  1. Motive
    Maraming klase ng ulterior motive. Maaring gumaganti siya. O gusto niya yung partner mo. Pwede rin ayaw niya sa partner mo o sayo mismo kung pamilya siya ng isa sa inyo. Posible ring katuwaan sa kanya ang lahat. Ano man ang dahilan, huli mo na ito nalaman dahil malapit na siya magtagumpay.
  2. Weakness
    Hindi kailangang maging stalker para malaman ang kahinaan ng isang relationship. Makinig ka lang ng kaunti, malalaman mo na. Hindi rin kinakailangang pumasok sa social circle, kahit tao lang siya sa background mahahanapan niya ng butas ang pagmamahalan niyo. Madalas ang kahinaan ng isang relationship ay kung ano ang wala at dito na niya naisip kung papasok siya sa social circle niyo o manunuod lang siya sa likod dahil mas safe doon. Gagamitin niya yung bagay na wala sa inyo at ibibigay niya sa kanya o sa iyo. At mukhang tinanggap na niya yoon ng hindi mo alam.
  3. Authority and Status (side strategy)
    Ang hakbang na ito ay para naman sa gustong tapusin ang relationship niyo in just a snap. Simple lang, kung parents mo siya, tatakutin ka niya o yung partner mo. Maaring ginawa niya ito upang mataasan ang mga kayang ibigay mo sa partner mo. Hindi ko naman sinasabing Gold Digger ang kasintahan mo, pero let’s be honest, malakas talaga ang hatak sa mata kapag may katungkulan yung tao. Magre-rely ka nalang sa tiwala o sa angking kakisigan at kagandahan mo.
  4. Idea
    Sabi nga nila, “Ang Ideya ang pinakamalakas na armas ng sangkatauhan.” Binigyan niya ng ideya ang partner mo at sinimulan niya yun sa pagbigay ng kung ano ang kulang sa relationship niyo. Maaaring nagbigay siya ng better choice. Maaari ding idinaan niya sa deal. Maaari ding nagbigay siya ng haka-haka base sa kinuwento ng partner mo sa kanya. Ideya rin ang dahilan kaya’t magsisinungaling ang partner mo sa’yo.
  5. Doubt
    Sinira niya ang tiwala ng kasintahan mo sa iyo. Dahil malakas ang kapangyarihan ng impluwensya. Madali lang sabihin sa partner mo na…hmmm… “may nangyari sa amin kagabi”? o “Anong binili ng jowa mo sa Sogo kahapon?” or… “Alam ko yang mga ganyan. Siguro may iba na siya?” Simpleng ideya na naging pagdududa. Kung nag-aaway kayo ngayon, nandito ka na sa part na ito. At pag hindi mo naayos yan, huling yugto na siya sa mga plano niya.
  6. Break Up
    Bihira lang ang mag-partner na hindi humahantong sa hiwalayan after ng Doubt. Nakaligtas man kayo ngayon, hindi na nito maaayos ang lamat sa pagmamahalan ninyong dalawa. Mauuulit ang pag-aaway na naranasan ninyo. Pahirap nang pahirap hanggang sa puntong susuko ang isa sa inyo. Pasensiya na ngunit sa oras na tumuntong ka sa pang-limang hakbang ng pagmamanipula niya, mahirap nang ayusin yan. Lalo na kung may history ka pa ng pangangaliwa o panloloko. Isa yang sumpa na kailan man hindi maaalis sa pagkatao kahit hindi mo na ito ginagawa.

Isang pagmamahalang nasira dahil sa ibang tao. Masakit man tanggapin ngunit madalas, Break-up na talaga ang sulusyon dahil hindi man siya nagtagumpay ngayon, babawi siya sa susunod. Sumuko man siya, may ibang papalit sa kanya upang ituloy ang nasimulan niya. Hanggang sa lumaki ang crack at tuluyang mabasag ang tiwala ninyo sa isa’t-isa.

Nasagot ko na ang katanungan mo. Nagkamali ka sa pagwa-walang bahala sa mga taong nakapaligid sa inyo at hindi mo naisip na maaari nilang sirain ang relationship na iyong iningat-ingatan.

Kung sakaling malampasan niyo ito, wag mo na kalimutan na ang mundo ay hindi lang sa inyong dalawa umiikot. Isipin niyo rin ang mga tao sa paligid niyo. Mahirap ayusin pero wag ka mag alala. May solusyon para diyan.

What Happened to Our Online Cooking Shows?

Facebook has become our personal diary for years. By just checking your wall, people can already determine your personality, what you typically do on weekends, where you go after work, and even what you cook.


There are hundreds of Facebook pages related to creative cooking recently. Almost all of them uploads easy creative cooking with recipes that you probably haven’t heard of, daily. Mostly snacks and pizzas, these recipes seem so easy to make and looks tasty on the videos that makes you wanna try them as soon as you get home. But upon watching them under good music, lighting, foreign ingredients and all, you’ll begin to realize that something’s missing. Where’s the passion in cooking them?

That’s the reason why people like Gordon Ramsay is born. Maybe the God of cooking sent him to deliver discouraging words so you can try to cook with passion next time.

1. Every food is microwavable. In their videos, you will notice that the cooking lesson is not complete without the magic microwave. They basically bake almost everything from bread to marinated bacon.


2. They put too much Cheese. Most of these videos will make you feel like every dish should have a touch of cheese. There’s even a Swiss dish called Raclette where a wheel of cheese is melted and scraped on top of a dish. What did you order there? -the cheese, of course! In case you didn’t know, cheese is rich with cholesterol and fat. You can gain weight by just adding extra cheese on your burger.

3. Misinformation. Gordon Ramsay made it clear that pineapples don’t go on pizza. Yet every pizza-making video in these Facebook pages are always topped with pizza. They are slowly changing the proper way of cooking by making them easier and sweeter. No, don’t put pineapple on your pizza.

4. And speaking of pizza, you can make any version of pizza now. Vegetable Pizza, sweet pizza, fruity pizza, meaty pizza, etc pizza, and even cake pizza. By just mentioning them, you already know it turned my stomach a bit but some of them do taste good. I tried making the meaty overload pizza, and goodness! It made my nape hurt the whole night.

5. Bacon is the universal meat. Because they say everyone loves bacon -The same “everyone” who loves baked mac. They will either weave or wrap anything with bacon to deep fry or bake.

I don’t know with you but I think cooking videos are getting more absurd everyday.

Oh well. I’m baking Pizza. (sounds so wrong)
