Sweet thang

This song came on in our car ride tonight, and it just filled me up with butterflies. One thing I have been blessed with, is an amazing boyfriend and I seriously cannot get enough of him.

WEEKEND CHALLENGE: 2 secrets about me

So I'm going to share two secrets about me. Ready? Set. And GO!

1) If I'm sleeping alone, which is about 3-4 times a week or more if I don't see my boo bear on the weekends because he likes to leave me to go on trips *sigh, just kidding, I need some form of light on. If I'm extremely tired it doesn't matter. It's not because I'm scared, I don't know why. Whether it's my laptop staying open (sometimes I just fall asleep watching a movie or show) or the light on my night stand, or just the ceiling light. Yes, I can sleep with the light on, I hate to admit this but sometimes I get SUPER lazy and I don't want to get out of bed and I'll just fall asleep. I know *bad Florence.

2) I love spicy food. The spicier the better. I love the burn the roof of your mouth, get a little sweaty, nose running type of heat. Oh lawd TMI huh? But yes, I LOVEEEEE SPICY FOOD. I cannot get enough of it. There was a point where I ate spicy salsa with my food almost everyday. I sometimes use sriracha sauce (the asian red rooster), hot oil chili (found mainly at Thai and SOME Chinese restaurants), and cheyale (I don't even know how to properly spell this, but this is my favorite of them all). So when I lived with my brother and sister in law, one day her mom made this roasted amazing goodness. If you follow me on my personal instagram which is (florenceantonette) you will be able to see in some of my photos when I eat rice and some type of meat, there's this green stuff. It's cilantro, onion, TONS of thai chili (well not tons, maybe 8-15 depending on how hot it is & roasted), 1 jalapeno (roasted), dried red hot pepper crushed, and salt & MSG (you don't have to add MSG). And you smash it into a mortar and pastle. You can buy it at almost any asian store, I've seen them at TJ Maxx. But I'll make a video or photos of step-by-step on how to make it.

Weekend Challenge: VLOG

So one of my challenges for this weekend was to make a VLOG, it's nothing specific but I just wanted to share it. AH, it's so damn weird seeing myself talk to myself, but hey I guess I'm not the only one who does it. Check it out, hope you enjoy. The next posting will probably be my mini vacation that I took to Pismo Beach, but we'll see. Maybe I'll go and take photos of my city to share with you on how I view Sacramento. I said 5 photos is the limit, BUT I may do more. Following the rules? Who does that these days... kidding.

Check this out please :D

One of my favorite you tube artists is Gabe Bondoc. I've seen him a few years back when he performed at SJSU, ahh how I'd love to go and see him again :)

Watch with me.


I love top chef. TEAM SHELDON. I'm Filipino, so you know I have to go with the Filipino bro <3

Le life.

There are times in life where you're going to hit a bump in the road, that bump seems to be getting bigger and bigger and when will they end? This semester is my last, well it was supposed to be at least. I didn't want to go to summer school but I suppose I may have to. The availability of courses are outrageous. I rather go through the path that I'm going, than in debt and struggling. Where to next? I always thought I wanted to go to San Francisco. Oh the city life. I love it there, but I'm a little hesitant on moving that direction because I don't want to hate that city. If I'm going to live there I want to ENJOY it. I want to be able to surround myself with the things that I love especially if I'm going to be there for a while. 

When people ask me about my path and what I have been doing and where I go, sometimes I just want to hand them my resume. It's interesting how people think jobs define them, or how their significant others job defines them is even more comical. The last time I checked, that's what THEY do, and not you. But people will be people. My job doesn't define me, a career is a little more different. I don't think some individuals know the difference. 

Why the change of blog sites? I eventually want to build something that's not filled with REBLOGS, tumblr is a good site for that. To display certain things that I like, but in the midst of scrolling, you were only able to find a few blog postings that I have done because it's so easy to just go on a clicking tangent and BAM BAM BAM, reblog, reblog, like. So I moved here, hello :) You'll find photos, health tips, recipes, crafts, etc. I want 2013 to be a change. I want to be more involved in my community, my friendships, my family, and just enjoy life. 

Last semester I was a walking zombie. The term "WORK HARD PLAY HARD" is kind of my theme for this year. I want to explore Sacramento more. I've been living here for a while now and I just stick to my bubble kind of. I really want to challenge myself and see what's out here. I mean people come all over the world to visit the capital of California and find themselves being quite disappointed, trust me I get disappointed too and I live here. There are many restaurants, a few bars here and there, but where are the hidden gems? That is my goal. To at least find 3 hidden gems a month. I'll also share my foodie experiences. Oh the love of food, now that's a whole other story, yes I'm trying to eat out less, and yes it's been working. But I can't stop eating. Life is too short to not taste the deliciousness out there. Ah, food it's such an art of it's own. I feel sorry for those who stick to one thing, I could never do that. So tomorrows Friday, and my goal after work is to go and see my nephew and spend time with him, I also would like to see my grandmother since it's been a quick minute. Then shoot back to good ol` Sacramento. Oh the joys of the 916.

Challenge for myself this weekend:
- Finish week 1 & 2 for project life
- Share with you two secrets about me
- 5 Photos that represent your city: PUBLIC CHALLENGE! I challenge you my friends to go around your city and capture how you define it in just 5 photographs
- Do a VLOG: oh my. Me? Record myself? This should be interesting.
- Show you my homework :) I'm such a nerd.
- My Pismo Beach 2 day get away vacation I took this past Sunday and Monday

I think that's a lot, but you know me I enjoy setting the bar pretty up there. 

WARNING: I love to use smiley faces, I type the way I talk, I over use "like", HELLA: duh I am from Nor Cal what do you expect? And I will talk about my boyfriend from time to time, just because I can :) Toodles, goodnight.
