My Life in Like

Gordon Ramsay

If you know me, then you’d know i ADORE Gordon Ramsay. I know he’s had some trouble lately & that most people think he’s an asshole but I am a complete fan. I have become obsessed with his recipes – they are simple and they WORK! I learned how to poach fish because of him, and I felt a complete thrill when I cooked warm salad, fish & tomato and kesong puti salad out of pure inspiration from his show, “F Word”. I personally think everyone in “Hell’s Kitchen” is an idiot for not being able to follow Ramsay, and is actually my least favorite show of his.  However, my all time favorite amongst his slew of shows is “Kitchen Nightmares” because you see him care, even if he’s screaming and yelling – you feel his frustration and you see how much he does for people who are struggling. Part of my wishlist this year is his cookbook “Fast Food”.

Every girl has her problem point, and mine are my inner thighs! I’ve been pretty athletic all my life, but there are just some parts of your body that need an extra push. Lately I’ve been spinning a lot, and have started intense workouts on my inner thighs. I’ve been doing the machine at almost 10-15 different weighted reps, and do those in 3 sets. To add to my workouts however, I decided to research and find more exercises so i can really ‘kill’ those inner thighs, get them lean and toned. So, here are a few exercises I’ll be adding to my workout:

The Romance of Sharing Bacteria

I remember staring at the empty sink, wondering where my toothbrush went. Looking in the cupboards, in the shower and then walking over to his kitchen, hoping I didn’t accidentally drop it in the trashcan. Instead, my boyfriend comes out with a cigarette in hand, “What you looking for, hun?”

That was the day I first shared my toothbrush.

He proceeds to tell me that he used it as his “travel toothbrush” when he went on a trip to Antipolo. I have a half grin, and my eye starts to twitch. For some people, it’s moving in, getting flowers, or getting that first kiss that brings them to the next step of their relationship, with me: it’s bacteria.

Currently, I use his toothbrush all the time because it’s cooler, it’s electric, for goodness sake he has a PHILLIPS toothbrush. I associate that with a flat screen TV, so I guess it is the LCD of pearly whites. It took me a while to get to this step, but I must admit, other than bewilderment, I was a little giddy when I found out we were sharing bristles.

Personally, I think it’s these moments that really shape where a relationship is going. For some, it seems like a dead end when he finds his once “sexy” girlfriend grinning at him while wistfully using his shaver.  But, the truth is, if you’re planning to spend the rest of your lives together you have to accept the fact that no one can be perfect all the time. If they are, then that’s just freaky.

It helps to be hot once in a while, though. Don’t take me the wrong way and suddenly stuff yourself with éclairs and Cadbury eggs (burp. Oops.) Your man still finds you sexy nonetheless, but you thrill him with random surprises, and find yourself giggling when you find him using your blow dryer. It’s all a bit of fun getting to know each other and doing the things you do when you’re alone, because the bottom-line is, you’re supposed to find your ‘other half’. You can’t do that while holding your farts, covering your toothbrush in plastic and locking your bathroom door, now can you?

The Little Horse That Could
Meet the brave horse Molly!

Meet the brave horse Molly!

I received an inspirational email earlier today talking about this miracle pony. It warms my heart to see the strength in an animal’s character, and every chance you get to see within their souls. I’ve been lucky enough to be surrounded by animals all throughout my life – especially horses – and what people don’t seem to understand is that they are such intelligent and feeling animals. They care about you, they love you, they try to communicate with you in different ways and each one changes your life completely in a positive way. The problem with people who can’t seem to ‘communicate’ with animals is that they just don’t listen. So have a look and be encouraged by the strength of this little horse named Molly.

Meet Molly. She’s a gray speckled pony who was abandoned by her owners when Katrina hit southern Louisiana, USA. She spent weeks on her own before finally being rescued and taken to a farm where abandoned animals were stockpiled. While there, she was attacked by a pit bull terrier, and almost died. Her gnawed right front leg became infected and her vet went to LSU for help. But LSU was overwhelmed, and this pony was a welfare case. You know how that goes.

But after surgeon Rustin Moore met Molly, he changed his mind. He saw how the pony was careful to lie down on diff- erent sides so she didn’t seem to get sores, and how she allowed people to handle her. She protected her injured leg. She constantly shifted her weight, and didn’t overload her good leg. She was a smart pony with a serious survival ethic.

Moore agreed to remove her leg below the knee and a temporary artificial limb was built. Molly walked out of the clinic and her story really begins there.

“This was the right horse and the right owner,” Moore insists.  Molly happened to be a one-in-a-million patient. She’s tough as nails, but sweet, and she was willing to cope with pain. She made it obvious she understood (that) she was in trouble. The other important factor, according to Moore, is having a truly committed and compliant owner who is dedicated to providing the daily care required over the lifetime of the horse.

Molly’s story turns into a parable for life in post-Katrina Louisiana. The little pony gained weight, her mane felt a comb. A human prosthesis designer built her a leg.

The prosthetic has given Molly a whole new life, Allison Barca DVM, Molly’s regular vet, reports.  And she asks for it! She will put her little limb out, and come to you and let you know that she wants you to put it on. Sometimes she wants you to take it off too.” And sometimes, Molly gets away from Barca. “It can be pretty bad when you can’t catch a three-legged horse,” she laughs.

Most important of all, Molly has a job now. Kay, the rescue farm owner, started taking Molly to shelters, hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers. Anywhere she thought that people needed hope. Wherever Molly went, she showed people her pluck. She inspired people. And she had a good time doing it.

“It’s obvious to me that Molly had a bigger role to play in life”, Moore said, “She survived the hurricane, she survived a horrible injury, and now she is giving hope to others.” “She’s not back to normal,” Barca concluded, “but she’s going to be better. To me, she could be a symbol for New Orleans itself.

This is Molly’s most recent prosthesis. It shows the ground surface that she stands on, which a smiley face has embossed in it. Wherever Molly goes, she leaves a smiley hoof print behind!

Friendship knows no boundaries, so why should we let differences set us apart? Learn a thing or two from animals, because they love you for who you are, not what you look like. That’s love.
