If you are in currently attending college or already graduated, what was your major?

I love Calligraphy because Fonts are like people blod, italic, wide, light etc.... a font has it's own character and charme :)

I use an Nikon D3100

Do you prefer writing and scheduling posts ahead of time or publishing posts immediately after writing them?
No i try to schedule my posts... i don't know how other bloggers work but my picture take time even preparing the food and the post, i love to tell a story about my Food post..otherwise it would be just a recipe.

I recommend my mom's Food :) Filipino food is just awesome!

When and how did you learn to cook/bake?
When I was 12 i started to learn how to cook. My mom showed me a lot not to overbake.. or never leave the oven etc... but you know what?? I leave sometime my oven...and sometimes I burn something :)  but hey...then i start to think of my moms words... never ending learning process :) 

Do you have a favorite recipe? If so, what is it?
My favorite recipe is a simple chocolate blueberry pancake recipe. I love the combination between creamy and sour.
