munching through the midweek

Its no secret that Kei and I love being a couch potato, and there is no better time to be one than now. Because holidays are the perfect excuse to sleep through the alarm and go about marathon watching my favorite series on Netflix, and just this week we got I-flix too.

We really enjoy watching Netflix’s Dynasty

But if you were to make me choose, I still prefer Netflix. Because I am pretty much hooked into Netflix’x Dynasty that is based from a 1980’s series of the same name. *I have never seen the 1980’s one.  We also still enjoy watching Riverdale and Designated Survivor.

Another thing we also do when watching our favorite series is we go all out! I cook tacos, pasta or any food that we both love for dinner. We also stock up on our favorite eats and even go as far as running off to the nearest coffee shop to buy a drink. *Peppermint everything! -More so that the holidays are just around the corner. I am fond of peppermint.  It is like having a cozy midweek date night at home.

Our favorites this holiday season.  From left: Yellow Tail Pink Moscato, Starbucks Christmas Tree Peppermint Mocha -or if we cannot go out we have Owl instant white coffee with peppermint, Lamb Weston Potato wedges that I pop in the airfryer for a “guilt free” version, and Tostitos that we dip into the creamy spinach dip! 

We look forward to it every Thursday (the day all the series I mentioned here have new episodes).  Kind of like a pick-me-up in the middle of the week and motivation to get it through (deadline) Friday, till the happy days of the weekend.

late but still ok

We just watched Beauty and the Beast yesterday. Late I know, but we got the movie house to ourselves so it ain’t that bad.

Emma Watson looked so pretty as Belle, as well as the remake of Belle’s yellow gown! Luke Evans also did a great job playing Gaston. To quote my bestfriend Jo:”If movies are cheap, I would watch it over and over again”. -I would definitely do that too!

I still have last song syndrome from the movie. No, actually make that from all the familiar Disney songs of my childhood. I sing along to them! Back to the movie, I liked how they made it as close to the cartoon that I watched countless of times in the TV and in my ViewMaster.

Lighted View Master just like mine. The only reels I have was Beauty and the Beast and Flintstones. 

I swap ViewMaster reels with my friends.- That way we all get to watch different stories without having to buy a lot of reels. So retro.

And In the topic of being late and retro… Riverdale is delayed!!! But again its ok. Because the series is renewed by CW for season 2! So relieved! Archie Comics in a show. My favorite new show this season.

I am still waiting for the next episode of Riverdale! Excited much?!

relieve the simple times

Yesterday Matti came over with a bag of tsokolate  from his recent trip to his Mom’s hometown and some (of his dad’s famous) laing!!!

So we got busy and made tsokolate with non fat milk. -That was our staple milk in the fridge. Paired the tsokolate with store brought ensaymada that we toasted. Kind of like a traditional Filipino merienda with some modern twist.

We stayed in front of the laptop, marathon watching Riverdale. Since we are all huge fans of the Archie comics back when we were still kids, we decided to see the Riverdale series. It has taken a darker feel and some alterations but we like it all the same.

Finished watching all five and is now eagerly awaiting the next episode.

After that we took Matti out for a stroll in our neighborhood, bringing him to one of our usual haunts: the sidewalk cafe. And then capped of with a quick visit to a old Chinese bakery where we got pasalubong for Matti’s family. After a while it was time for Matti to go home.

We stayed at home for the rest of the day just being couch potatoes.

*On a gardening update. The Sampaguita is now blooming profusely!

Five in bloom and more to come!
