Tomato Story

A friend of mine forwarded this to me. I just thought to share it with you and let me know what moral of the story did you realize....

A Jobless man applied for the position of 'office boy' at Microsoft.
The HR manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test.

'You are employed' he said. Give me your e-mail address and I'll send
you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start.

The man replied 'But I don't have a computer, neither an email'.

'I'm sorry', said the HR manager. If you don't have an email, that
means you do not exist. And who doesn't exist, cannot have the job.'

The man left with no hope at all. He didn't know what to do, with only
$10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a
10Kg tomato crate.
He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than two hours,
he succeeded to double his capital. He repeated the operation three times,
and returned home with $60.

The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go
everyday earlier, and return late. Thus, his money doubled or tripled

Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own fleet
of delivery vehicles.

5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US
He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance.

He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan.
When the conversation was concluded the broker asked him his email.
The man replied,'I don't have an email.'
The broker answered curiously, 'You don't have an email, and yet have
succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been
if you had an e mail?!!' The man thought for a while and replied,
'Yes, I'd be an office boy at Microsoft!'

So, if we work hard even without using internet we can be a millionaire =) So i'm going to start selling tomatoes. haha! How about you?

How to Make Gumpaste

This weekend I took Gumpaste Flower Making Course for two days since I have passion in baking why not taking this course. It will add beauty to my cake decoration. I post here one of the finished product I made which is the red rose. Our mentor let us used air brush to enhance the color. Cute isn't it? Here is the recipe if you want to make one at your home. It's very easy.


2 tbsp. Unflavored Gelatin
2/3 cups Cold water
8 cups Confectioner's Sugar


1. Sprinkle the unflavored gelatin over the cold water and stir until well blended. Allow gelatin to set.
2. When set, put the mixture on top of a double boiler and cook until gelatin is fully dissolved. Do not use wire whisk so that gelatin will not pick-up air.
3. Measure powdered sugar in a clean table. Make a well at the center and pour gelatin mixture.
4. Stir in the powdered sugar into the liquid. Knead until smooth and pliable. Add powdered sugar if necessary.
5. Store in airtight container.

Out of Town in Glan Gumasa Photos

I was on baking class when my cellphone vibrate. Got a text from my friend kane telling me that we'll go to Gumasa Beach overnight at 4 pm. It is 45 minutes from my City. So I replied "YES" I'll join with them. It was 9 of us there. We had some BBQ party at the beach, played some cards. Few didn't join including myself and it's not my cup of tea playing cards with money involve. So I just joyfully watched them. I love Gumasa beach so much, water is lucid, white sand and wonderful sunset. We slept around 3 A.M. and woke up at 6;30 A.M. Some went to the beach and few of us prepared our breakfast. After taking our breakfast, we continued playing the card game without money involve this time. I attach here some photos of the beach, view on our way home and the tent where I slept.

What can you say to this wonderful beach? For sure if you guys are there you won't think twice to jump into the water..Have a nice day!

Seafood Lovers

I’m fun collecting recipes that's why I'm currently on my culinary training right now. I'm searching for a recipe which the main ingredient is a shrimp. If you have shrimps preparation in your table it's considered special viand here in Philippines. Luckily, I came across to a cook off website which is Great American Seafood Cook Off 2008. Wow! There were five Chef’s competing. All recipes are great. I prefer and choose Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille Cassoulet by Chef Brian Landry in Louisiana because I’m a shrimp lover and I find it easy to prepare the ingredients is easy to find here in my city. It’s also perfect to prepare for your family and friends. Surely, 100% they will love this scrumptious food. I can’t wait to try this one. I just cast my vote to the recipe which I really like. . I'll just alter Michelob Amber beer to save some cost into a soda. Cool isn’t it? I love the herbs being used on this recipe as well. Using domestic seafood can help our economy rise, we can assure that it's fresh, very nutritious, affordable and delicious.

If you love to cook for your family, why don’t you visit the site and try their recipes and cast your votes as well. I assured you that you won’t regret because you have also a chance to win a Trip to New Orleans. Isn’t it great? What are you waiting for? Come and vote now!
