attempted to make Filipino style chicken adobo for the first time last week. it turned out pretty good, at least the husband was pleased.
To sum it up, it's braised chicken in 2 parts vinegar, 1 part soy sauce, peppercorns, and garlic.
will make again.

ever since me and the hubby have been traveling i've loved learning at least a bit of the language prior to the trip- so i at least know a few good phrases in italian, french, spanish, czech, korean, japanese (turkish and croatian were just a bit too hard!) out of them all, i learned the most korean- well mainly because i do enjoy their dramas and music. but it was also a good thing since it seemed most of the people there spoke the least amount of english out of the places we've traveled.
anyways for the past several weeks me and my buddy Dru, started taking a korean language class courtesy of the local korean education center.. our first session just ended.. and it was quite fun.. looking forward to signing up for the second session too - check out the ridiculous class video we filmed on our second to last class. (i also started learning how to use AfterEffects prior to editing this video - CHECK DEM SKILLZ OUT)

so this happened last saturday while attending a banquet - so the guy may not have actually been that creepy - but just the dialog itself.. i could not resist. i mean scary yet flattering right? OR he just has photographic memory skillz, while i on the other hand could barely remember that i took a jazz appreciation class.

you're probably wondering where i've been.. so here's the obligatory dramatic short. we were under contract to sell our house, went under contract to buy a house, went on vacation in September and had a good time in Greece and even better time in Turkey. 2 weeks after we returned.. we sold our house, the day after... i got laid off, we cancelled the contract on purchasing said new home. in one day went from future plans known to jobless and technically homeless all at the same time.
sounds scary right? ok so i probably thought so myself at first too. but really it has just changed things completely. finally giving me that slim chance on doing something different. something creative. something i've ultimately wanted to do. i mean srsly who really wants to test software and programs every day. i mean it's work. and work is good. and my old job had the best coworkers evar. so for those days after when i was sentimental and sad.. it was because of them. also luckily for us we were able to lease back our house from the new owners. and i went on pursuing photography/graphic design/ styling/cinematography over the last few months. it may be going slowly, but steady enough for an upstart.
now it's march, i video'd my first wedding, then second, turned 30, got some new equipment, and moving into a new house.. things are looking better and brighter each day. resets can be good man.
