The Hell With The Diet!!!

Last Friday, my BH brought home a big, Coleman outdoor griller. My gosh, it is huge!!! He is such a food lover... He enjoys cooking, preparing food, grilling, anything about food... So, he planned on having a Saturday Grillin' Party at home and invited a few of our friends...
We had so much fun using the grill. I helped him prepare for the marinades, sauces, dips, and helped set up the table... Here's what we had:

Grilled Pork Chops, Grilled Squid, and Grilled Tilapia (Fish wrapped in foil) My Beloved Toddler saw the squid and kept on calling it "Ursula". She didn't like it... Especially the tentacles.... Teehee.... Another picture of the grill... That's my BH's fingers holding the thong there...

Eating Time!!!

Actually, the grilled food is not much of a sin to a dieter... The real sin is, I had rice!!! My weakness*snicker*!!! Oh how could I eat those irresistible stuff without carbo??? Too bad we Asians were brought up eating rice... And burning carbs require faster metabolism, which means, ugh, ample exercise... pffft! I should've known that when I was around 2 yrs. old!!! Too late... Now that I can't do anything about it, I'd just stick to my original plans.... Enjoy treadmill, and eat less(er) carbs...

Ugh, enough with the crap...

Guess what?! I have a thing with notebooks.... I love journals, diaries, planners, guides, notepads, anything that has lines and could be written on... I actually have a lot of them here beside me, and I'm willing to have more... Here are some cute ones I got from seejanework.com, through the help of Closet Therapy.

I always jot down all the details I see in blogs or sites, so I can easily trace them, and acknowledge the author... This is a helpful tool for me 'coz I keep a lot of passwords and sometimes everything gets mixed up and can't get the right one... This one might help me organize my web surfing...




The Party Journal


I always prepare instant parties at home... Whether it's held in my mom's place or my sister's or mine, I'd always be the one to arrange the party planning... I admit, never was a time that I did not forget any single thing, from dishes to prepare, to table napkins to arrange... So I believe that this journal is a must for every party organizer.




The Restaurant Journal

Since I always go out, dine out, it would be great if I could keep a journal like this... Would work as a record of what I ate, with whom, food prices, and ratings... This one, I think is worth buying, for my lifestyle, I believe so...





Wine Party Guide


This is perfect for Wine Enthusiasts! It comes with wine glass charms, note cards, and coasters. Ummm, too extravagant for me... Plus, it's not my kind of thing...

and lastly,

The Style Planner

This one suits a true Fashionista.... One who's brilliant in mixing and matching, one who prepares her outfit everyday, and one who never re-wears the same whole outfit in a year... Cute idea though...

As I go through, I think I'd settle for the Restaurant Journal... The internet journal is tempting too... So I guess it depends on the budget... But I'd definitely get one *wink*.

I lov the idea of the restaurant journal. I have a notebook i randomly write stuff in... I need not worry that someone finds it- becuase it'd be nearly impossible to decifer what I've scribbled in there. hehe.
The style planner would be great when you have the time too!!!

I'd kill for the restaurant, fashion and internet journals! I always forget great outfits that I come up with and I can never remember great restaurants that I have to go back to.
