Welcome to the 2nd update of The Ref Door Project! For this week, we have 4 bloggers who have decided to let us take a peek into their kitchen.

~*~

When Omom got a new stainless steel refrigerator (which isn’t magnet-friendly), where did all her ref door trinkets go? Take a peek and maybe you’ll learn a thing or two from her creativity!

Is that a toy shelf or a refrigerator? Watson sets us straight! Warning though, this might trigger jealous fits from Star Wars aficionados.

Pasion shares that her ref door is “fashionably old-fashioned.” I say it’s as eclectic as eclectic can get! Check out her cute baboy-damo family. And can you spot the fish from Palawan?

I thought of romance when I saw Pia’s ref. The promise of magnetic poetry, nostalgic pictures… check it out!

What does your refrigerator door look like? Take a pic of it and post it on your blog! Let me know when you do so I can write an entry with links to your ref door posts. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave a comment and a link to your ref’s uploaded image.

I update the Ref Door Project every Monday! See you next week!

P.S. Don’t judge a person by his refrigerator door! ;)

Move over, cones!

Cassava Chips

Instead of sugar cones to go with your ice cream, why not opt for something healthier: homemade cassava chips!

My cousin had a birthday party last Sunday. Dessert came as a surprise — ice cream and ice cream cones are our party staples and the cones that day were nowhere to be found. I thought I’d suffer from ice cream cone withdrawal. Not at all! I found the change refreshing! The cassava chips were deliciously crisp and complemented the ice cream’s richness really well.

Here is my Tita’s recipe for her Homemade Cassava Chips:

Grate cassava very finely. Then spread very thinly on cut banana leaves. Steam them for at least a minute or til they turn clear. Sun dry. Peel off from banana leaves. Continue sun drying till hard. Fry lightly in olive oil.

Ice Cream Mustache How do you eat this? Well, you can break off a piece of that huge chip and crumble it over your ice cream. Or you can break it into little pieces and eat it like nachos and salsa — use the ice cream as a dip. Click on the picture to how my niece ate hers!

Delicious, delicious. I can’t wait to try this new tandem again!

Virtual Paper Dolls

Toni Gal
Another doll you ask? Yes! Design Her Gals is fun, fun, fun. Create an account (it’s free!) so you can save the different gals you’ll dress up. After that, set aside a couple of hours playing with your virtual paper dolls. There are a lot of hairstyles, a lot of outfits and what they call “fun stuff” is really fun. They have a Pregnant Lady Paperdoll and a Little Girl Paperdoll too. I’m sure the girls will have a blast with this little game. Check out the buzz around this totally addicting site. Even Oprah thinks it’s cool! Another version is currently my desktop wallpaper too.

Thanks to Tin for sharing this site with me!

How much is that puppy on the taxi?

How much is that doggie on the taxi?

How much is that puppy on the taxi? (Arf arf!)
The one with the Joy TP?

I do hope that puppy’s for me. (Arf arf!)

I see a lot of brands advertising on taxis but I thought this was one was really cute. Here’s a closer view. I wonder how much it costs to advertise on taxis and if this kind of advertising works!

The Accidental Mug Collection

The Accidental Mug Collection. Taken with the panoramic option of my phone. Not too clean but this'll do for now. Thanks for the idea, Eye!

“What you gonna do with all that mugs, all that mugs inside that trunk? I’ma get, get, get, get, you drunk, Get you love drunk off my mugs. My mugs (8x), My lovely little mugs, Check it out.”

Sorry Black Eyed Peas! I couldn’t resist. Now that this morning’s sugar high has worn off, let me tell you about my accidental mug collection. You know how it is right — you don’t know what X’mas gift to get someone you don’t know well, so you get a what? A mug. Or you get a souvenir from a get-together, and you get what? A mug. Or a friend gets you a gift because you’re a functional kinda gal, and so he gets you what? You guessed it, a mug. And so, ta-da! You have an accidental mug collection.

When I saw that one little “trunk” was getting a bit cramped with various mugs, it made perfect sense to just start treating them as a set. I couldn’t bear to part with any of them! Each one has a special story attached to it.

Here’s a brief history of the mugs shown in the pic above (from left to right): A matching cow mug and cat mug from one of our Ninangs (Christmas gifts), a gift from my close friend and officemate (Christmas), a Jojo A. All the Way mug from Jojo (souvenir and gift), a Spirit Warriors mug (movie souvenir), and a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. mug from a dear friend (I asked him to bring me something that will remind me of New York and he got me this!). I have a couple more mugs not shown in this pic.

But while I like ‘em all, my favorite mug sits right beside me at the office:

Presents from H!

I don’t use it for anything at all, save for holding this Pikachu-like mutant bunny.

So… what you gonna do with all that mugs, all that mugs inside that trunk? A-duh! Start a collection!
