A true chef knows that the simpler the pasta, the harder it is to make. Pastas such as Aglio Et Olio and Vongole are essentially considered “nude”, every layer of coating peeled away to show its true flavor. They are not to be considered easy, for a small mistake can be known just by the look or taste. Why is it so- they don’t have the strong flavors of tomato sauce or cream to coat the pasta, which easily covers up the poor quality spent making it. It doesn’t take much effort to make a red spaghetti, just boil the pasta, throw it in a pan, add some sauce, and mix a bit and voila, there it is. However, for the “naked pastas”, they need a perfect ratio of oil to garlic, well boiled pastas that are not over nor under cooked, thrown into the pan at an even temperature, a clean, healthy batch of whatever goes with it (clams, vegetables, steak, etc), with a perfect timing to pour a bit of the carefully chosen wine to enrich the flavor. If one thing or process is missing or not perfected, the whole pasta is messed up. A small mistake has a great impact on these types of pastas.
Anyone not a breakfast person?
Hahaha well that isn’t really something I should be proud of, considering breakfast should be the biggest meal of the day. But hey, what can I say, my stomach is a muscle. And muscles stretch well when worked out.
Many of you probably don’t know what the DIY project is, nor the IdeaFM, nor even the 20% project.Are they different?
Actually, they’re pretty much the same. We get to make our own projects, whether it may be for the good of a foundation, a community, or a grade school. My English class is working on the IdeaFM project, aka Idea Farming project. It’s exciting, but very hard, managing the timing, the process, the actual work, and getting them approved by the teacher, and then to the head of the organization or school to be able to work on it.
Now for me, my project was something that occurred in my dream. I was holding a concert for a group of disabled children. I sang, while my friends and I danced, a great performance that the children loved, and grew to be a famous group. I faintly remembered wings in our t-shirts, and that moment when I remembered that dream, I was listening to Trap, a song by Henry Lau.
So I gave the project its name.
Sometimes, my brain gets the greatest ideas when I’m relaxed, watching a movie on my couch, cuddled up in blankets and pillows. But when I sit down to type out the words that I want to say to you guys, my mind just becomes… blank. A white piece of paper that was once furiously written, but somehow whited out, leaving no hint for me to find out what I was going to say.
So I sat down not to think of what to write, but what I do most, so that maybe talking about that will give me an idea.
Definitely something to check out!

If there was such thing as music in the form of writing, I would definitely consider poetry as one style of music.
The flow of words, the measures, it all collaborates into a beautiful harmony that expresses emotions that a reader can feel.
It’s like watching a movie, where this scene makes you laugh, cry, scream, or even give you a tingling feeling from deep below, a slight tightness in the heart, in a good way.
Now let me introduce you to an amazing website.
Power Poetry is not just a website where a bunch of people gather to write poetry.
It’s a place where teenagers have a chance to show the world their power of writing, their artistic powers. It is a poetry…
