So, last night was my first attempt at making Eggs Benedict (for midnight snacking).
Recipe (serves 3):
3 eggs
3 slices of sourdough bread (I will make some with English muffins soon) 
3 slices of Bacon Spam (yes!)
1. Fill a pan with water, and add a teaspoon of vinegar once the water starts to boil.
2. Add the eggs gently (I suggest you crack them open onto a bowl first before poaching them to make sure none of the eggs are spoiled), and carefully remove them from the pan once they are cooked. Set aside.
3. Melt a spoonful of butter on a nonstick pan, and toast the bread along with the slices of Spam, and set them aside when they are done.
For the Hollandaise Sauce: 
1 egg yolk
melted butter
paprika
salt
1. Make a double broiler by placing a bowl on top of a sauce pan filled with about an eighth of simmering water.
2. Place the egg yolk in the bowl, and slowly add in the melted butter while continuously whisking the yolk (to keep from making scrambled eggs!)
3. Keep whisking, and remove from the heat once the sauce starts to thicken. Season with salt and a dash of paprika.
To set everything up, place the Spam on top of the bread, gently add the poached egg, sprinkle with a bit of salt (and/or pepper), drizzle with a few spoonfuls of the hollandaise sauce, and garnish it with fresh parsley, et voila! 
The first (and last time) I had Eggs Benedict was in Boracay with my love, two years ago(!). We both liked it very much but this is my first attempt at making my own Eggs Benedict recipe so I have absolutely nothing to compare it to. Nonetheless, my dad (being the most upfront person I know), liked it very much so that alone already makes me feel glad.
If you do decide to give this a try, let me know how it goes for you and feel free to share if you’ve made a few adjustments to the recipe :)
Bon appetit!

I write because I consider it my therapy from all the fucked-up things I encounter everyday. It’s my morphine, Valium and Prozac and all other imaginable mind-numbing drugs rolled into one fat capsule which I happily consume day after day just to spare myself from all the world has to throw at me.

The Death Rose (Rosa calvaria) is a rare and mysterious plant species. Beautiful when blooming, the buds form skull like faces when wilting.
Biologists still don’t understand how the Death Rose forms these shocking designs as they are impossible to grow in lab experiments.

this is the most metal flower i have ever seen.

When I was younger, I’d put my arms in my shirt and told people I lost my arms. Would restart the video game whenever I knew I was going to lose. Slept with all the stuffed animals as a child so none of them got offended. Had that one pen with 4 colors, and tried to push all the buttons at once. Poured soda into the cap and acting like I was taking shots. The hardest decision was choosing which Nintendo game to play. Waited behind a door to scare someone, then leaving because they’re taking too long to come out or you had to pee. Faked being asleep, so I could be carried to bed. Used to think that the moon followed my car. Watching two drops of rain roll down the window and pretending it was a race. Went on the computer just to use Paint. The only thing I had to take care of was a Tamagotchi. The only ‘fake’ friends I had were invisible ones . I used to sing in the shower. (Now? I make life decisions in there.) Swallowed a fruit seed I was scared to death that a tree was going to grow in my tummy. Bruised knees heal better than a broken heart. Remember when we were kids and couldn’t wait to grow up? What the hell were we thinking?

"Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’"
