Typhoon season has already started in the Philippines, and the past couple of years the country has seen terrible damages from Ondoy/Ketsana and Yolanda/Haiyan. I chose to make a resource on typhoon season (imo calling it “rainy season” is an understatement), how to mitigating some of its risks, and volunteerism.
So… This is what ive been up to lately, and I’m about to post my project up so here is a cross post about the MOOC for some context.
The first food film festival was in 2010.. and now three years later its still ongoing with another festival in charleston starting too. The one question in my mind is, why haven’t I heard about this sooner???

Sukiyaki is culturally seen as a special meal to share. Buddhism entered the country in the Asuka period (592-645) and forbade the consumption of beef and livestock. There were special exceptions though, like if one were sick or if it was a special occasion with an honored guest so it was not something people got to eat everyday.

This year, my space is both smaller and bigger. The last quarter of 2012 was marked by inactivity on this blog. There have been changes in my personal life and a good amount of my energy shifted towards family priorities.
I was in the middle of a move – again, and move around a bit more now a days. My apartment now is smaller, but has more sunlight and is in a safer neighborhood. I don’t always stay there though tending to be closer to and more frequently visiting Angeles. So there is a bit more space in that regard.
This blog is still going in the same direction however: homesteading, DIY, and a fascination for things made from scratch.
I wanted this blog to do well, and its starting to get there. Despite the aforementioned inactivity I’m getting 5-15 hits a day! Its not a huge number like some extremely popular sites get but I’m happy that people are reading the stuff here and that it’s hopefully been helpful.
So I want to say thank you, and ask you what would you like to see written about here this year ? Some feedback would really help! =)
