Penne Salmone
This was lovely, and I should try making this dish next time and change it up to spaghetti or spaghettini noodles since I’m not really a fan of penne. I love this kind of cheese, it reminds me of cheese-flavoured sorbetes (dirty ice cream) back in the Philippines. I’m not really knowledgeable with cheeses but it probably is Pecorino Romano, it tastes sharper than parmesan.

Life / Slovak Republic / Writing


Today I slipped on a rain puddle, hit my foot, and my shoe flew and got run over by the tram. I had to hobble to Tesco (wearing the torn-up shoe) and buy slippers. After the ordeal I almost passed out in church, it was the first time that I felt this way I think. I was feeling very warm and I couldn’t breath and my vision had blurred. It probably is my body’s way of coping with the physical trauma. It turned out to be a fifth metatarsal fracture.

edit: I’d like to thank Doc Remo who willingly answered my email questions!

Slovak Republic


We had lunch at the tower’s restaurant the other day. The floor panels rotate at a rate of one revolution every 40 minutes, revealing panoramic views of three surrounding countries Austria, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. The experience was a wee bit nauseating, and the waiter has overcharged us by a hundred dollars (no, he did not get away with it), but the food, company, and the lovely view more than made up for it.
