And It's Only Monday

I usually practice safe interweb browsing maneuver during office hour. But today the big boss decided to stop by my cube to personally confirm my attending a very important meeting this Friday. I had no guard whatsoever and this was what he saw on my screen...

trying to salvage the situation, I ALT+TAB the windows and arrived at this...

Sudah jatuh, ketimpa tangga...LoL!

In Love

Since when this becomes a fashion blog?

Eh, eh, personal stylist, Dian Zoe, tried to hook me up with various budget friendly pretty shoes online. I was in the market for pretty, pointy, flat shoes. DSW, Ross, and Macy's showed me no love. And then I hit Marshall's two nights before I flew to Texas.

I scored the flat version of these for 20 bucks. They are not pointy, but still pretty, and were parts of limited edition collection of the now defunct Te Casan shoe lines.

I wore them the whole trip (Thursday-Monday morning) except Friday afternoon when NY and I running about CS hitting the mall, cafe, and ULTA.

Hollandaise Sauce and Eggs

Egg has always been my favorite food item. As such, it is naturally that I am drawn to Hollandaise sauce.

A couple of favorite Hollandaise ladden meal (to be fair, I've only tasted these five so far, and they all made into the list):
  1. IHOP's Spinach and Mushroom Omelette
  2. Atlantis Hotel brunch buffet's egg benedict
  3. Cafe Amelia's Salmon Omelette (Bibi and my favorite)
  4. Some fish (forget the species) we baked for dinner one time
  5. Denny's Slam Burger (hmmm...not sure if it was cheese sauce or Hollandaise)
Last night, after a dream of munching on #3 with Bibi, I gave up and made my own Hollandaise sauce and recreated #2 sans muffin (and ham). Instead, I pan-toasted Trader Joe's sliced wheat bread. I poached an egg succesfully in my opinion, considering it was my first time poaching eggs.

Here is the Tyler Florence Hollandaise Sauce recipe I used. Half cup of butter, you said? I know! But it is worth it.

I had a microwaved egg with hollandaise and herb mix salad with cranberries and balsamic vinaigrette for lunch today. Uhhm, yummy!
