New Addiction: Legal High - Japanese Drama

I am an avid fan of Korean dramas. Without a doubt.

But recently, I got addicted to Japanese dramas as well. Particularly, detective stories. Something that involves mystery. I find them interesting and highly intellectual. The plots are well-crafted. Though, there will always be exceptions. The actors also portray their roles in a very convincing manner. I think Japan should be given credit and commendations for these kind of dramas. That is what they do best. Don't you agree?

Legal High is one of the Japanese dramas I am looking forward to watch every week, which is currently airing. Here's a short description of what this drama is all about.

Attorney Komikado Kensuke (Sakai Masato) loves money, prestige & women, but also has a 100% winning rate when it comes to his legal cases. Mayuzumi Machiko (Aragaki Yui) is a rookie attorney who holds a strong sense of justice; passionate about protecting the weak. She is also awkward and rigid in her work. One day, due to unforeseen circumstances, Mayuzumi Machiko begins to work at Komikado Kensuke's law office. The two attorneys constantly clash, but in the courtroom they cooperate to fight as one. - Dramacrazy

Easy Recipe for Working Wives & Moms: Oven Baked BBQ Spare Ribs

For working wives or moms like me, managing time is one of the hardest thing to do.
After a hard day's work, we still need to fix a dish for the family.

Here's a recipe that I want to share with you guys.
It will only take about 10 mins to prepare and 1 hour to bake and voila! The food is ready.

Initially, I thought of making my own version of Spare Ribs Sauce to marinate the pork overnight.
However, after not being able to find one ingredient that I need, I ended up buying a ready-made spare ribs sauce.

I tried it out last night and the sauce really tastes good. The taste is similar with my own version of Spare Ribs Sauce.

What you will need:

1.5 kgs Spare Ribs

6 tablespoons of Lum Kum Kee Spare Rib Sauce


1. Coat the ribs with the Spare Rib Sauce and marinate it overnight.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
3. Place the marinated spare ribs in a baking tray and bake it in 30 mins and turn the meat over to bake for another 30 mins.
4. Serve and enjoy!

Not bad eh? It looks burnt but it is very juicy inside. A Must Try! 

Happy Cooking!

IKEA's Pendant Ceiling Lamps - Is it a Must Have?

Right after attending a Tagalog mass at Church of the Holy Cross at Clementi, Hubby and I went to Ikea in Alexandra Road to do window shopping. Ooh, la la.

I was in search for ceiling lamps that can add life and vibrance to our room.
We searched all over the store and found so many fascinating stuffs, of course.

But. But. But.

Fickle-mindedness again! Argh!
I couldn't decide which one really suits me and my hubby's personality.
Plus the fact that, is it a must-have or just nice to have?

Nice, isn't it?
It's actually made of polypropylene plastic. Cost is $S99. Yes, it is expensive, I must say. 

Filipiniana Theme.

This lamp is made of handmade bamboo shade. We wanted to get this ceiling lamp if we will also get the table lamp which I really really like, also made of the same material. But due to budget constraints, I can only choose one at the moment. :-) Cost is also S$99.

This photo in IKEA's website do not give justice to the actual ceiling lamp. Sad to say.
This lamp is of white color. Made of Polycarbonate Plastic.
Way cheaper compared to the other two ceiling lamps. Only S$29.

So, can you help me decide which one is the best choice? :-)

All photos are from Ikea's website.

A Must See:Our Same-Day-Edit Video

Again, this is a late post :-)

Hubby and I were really astounded when this video was played during our wedding reception.
We weren't expecting much from our Videographer. :-)
One lesson we learned throughout our wedding preps: Trust your suppliers.

This video captured our heart-warming moments.

Transgenders allowed to join Miss Universe Pageant.

Source: Miss Universe

This issue has been circulating all over the world for the past few days. Now that Donald Trump's Miss Universe Organization has announced the inclusion of Transgenders in the Competition.

As expected, it has raised reactions from all over the world.
Based on what I have read, 90% are against this decision.

I, for one, is totally against this new rule.

I firmly believe that NO amount of surgery will make a man into a woman.
At the end of the day, a transgender may look female but will never be a female.

This is not even a discrimination issue.
They should know their limitations.
This is actually an insult to REAL women.
Transgenders should respect natural-born women.

I would not be surprised if 5-10 years from now, natural-born women will no longer join this once called a prestigious beauty pageant.

Is the essence of being a woman still there now that the organization has made this decision?
