Earthquake in the office

Posted in Uncategorized on November 10, 2010 by rebelhunt

Experienced a 5.2 magnitude earthquake today in the office. I didn’t feel it though because there’s some building construction going on on the ground floor that’s making the entire building shake the whole day. On a brighter note, it’s a good thing that no one was hurt and no property was destroyed.

What’s up for 2009

Posted in Uncategorized on December 26, 2008 by rebelhunt

Another year has passed, and I’m thankful that I was able to live through this one without too many problems.  I’m happy to say that this year was quite uneventful and at the same time sad because there was nothing new to rave about in the world of anime and gaming; that is until later, and I mean later this year.  Being a hardcore anime fan I’m always on the lookout for some good anime titles that’re worth my time.  For the greater part of the year I thought I was going to be disappointed.  But lo and behold, just when things seems like it was going to be an otaku’s worst nightmares, a couple of good titles sprang up just this latter quarter of the year!

AniCon 2008

Posted in Uncategorized on October 6, 2008 by rebelhunt

I was just over at SM MegaMall yesterday October 5, 2008 for the Anime convention at the Mega Trade Hall, and I was very much disappointed when I got there.  Being a pure blooded Anime Otaku I was expecting a lot of Doujinshi stuff, toys, and great anime.  I guess I was expecting too much because what I saw that day was probably one of the worst conventions I have attended in my whole life!  The venue wasn’t organized I a really good way, it was like someone was in a hurry to get the venue set up and it shows!  Another thing that I found irritating was the Cosplayers.

Now I know Cosplayers are the people who’re supposed to give life to events like this one, but the Cosplayers present that day were just so bad they’d send chills up your spine and curl your hair!  The other I missed were the Doujinshi’s or original Manga artists, the only people I saw were the posers and fakers who claim to be Anime artists and rips off people by charging them insane prices for their crappy artwork!

Truth be told, I couldn’t spot one single thing in there that I could consider a highlight.  Even the bands who were playing Anime songs were murdering those great songs!  If you’re asking why I don’t have any pictures here, the answer is simple.  The event was so bad that I didn’t want to waste my time and effort to take pictures to the crappy Cosplayers, and an event that would’ve been better if it was planned out well.

Steak with cheesy gravy.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on October 29, 2007 by rebelhunt

Being an avid food lover and cook, I am looking for new ways to treat my taste buds to some out of this world flavors.  Sometimes I would scour around the neighborhood and see what they have to offer, but sometimes when I’m just plain lazy I look for new and inventive ways to make cooking and eating fun.

One of  my favorite dishes is steak.  You can do a lot of good dishes with steak, depending on how you cook the steak and what sauce and sidedishes are included.  Now I’d like to share my very own recipe, something that I discovered while fooling around in our kitchen one afternoon.  I call it steak with cheesy gravy, and I guess the name speaks for itself.  What I did with this dish was to actually instill sweet, sour, and salty flavors to the steak and the sauce, bombarding you with three different flavors at once.

Here’s what you need:

1/2 kilo of serloin steak (expensive, but well worth it)

MARINADE: 

1/2 cup of white wine

3 tablespoons of soy sauce

2 teaspoon black pepper ground

4 tablespoons of Hickory sauce

CHEESY GRAVY:

2 Tablespoons of flour

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/2 cup of chopped mushroom

1 tablespoon soy sauce

quick melt cheese

1 beef broth cube

Mix all the ingredients for the marinade, pour over the steak and leave for at least 4 hours, but leaving it overnight would be much better.  Once the steak are ready, cook in frying pan with 4 tablespoons of olive oil.  Cook the steak to your desired rareness. 

For the sauce, place flour in a sour pan and heat for about 45 seconds in low heat; mixing the flour well.  Then add the unsalted butter to the flour and mix then well, wait until the flour becomes something like small polvorons.  Then add about 1 cup of water and stir until the mixture becomes pasty.  Add soy sauce, mushroom, and broth cube and stir.  Grate about 1/4 of the quick melt cheese and add to gravy, then stir until the cheese melts.

Once the gravy is done pour it over the steak and enjoy.  You can use whatever side dish you want, best for intimate dinners or if just feel like pigging out. 🙂
