When Kate, single mother and law firm partner, gets an urgent phone call summoning her to her daughter’s exclusive private school, she’s shocked. Amelia has been suspended for cheating, something that would be completely out of character for her over-achieving, well-behaved daughter.
Kate rushes to Grace Hall, but what she finds when she finally arrives is beyond comprehension.
Her daughter Amelia is dead.
Despondent over having been caught cheating, Amelia has jumped from the school’s roof in an act of impulsive suicide. At least that’s the story Grace Hall and the police tell Kate. In a state of shock and overcome by grief, Kate tries to come to grips with this life-shattering news. Then she gets an anonymous text:
Amelia didn’t jump.

Find out what happened to Amelia for just $1.99 in the Kindle store, today only.

Thank you thank you thank you.
I was thinking about buying this yesterday and didn’t… so now I get it for a deal. I’m sorry I’m so cheap. 
I did end up buying Life After Life.
I think I may have gone a bit ebook buying crazy for this trip…

Ana introduced me to a series of movies called That’s Entertainment…

They’re about MGM studios back in the day. I found copies at Half Price Books last week so Andrew and I have been watching them.

I’m so totally in love with Fred Astaire it’s absolutely ridiculous.

RE: The thing in honor of my dad…

My dad wasn’t much on pieces of paper AND he would have much rather the president come over for a beer and some food. No kidding, we used to have conversations about what we would serve if the president came over for dinner. Nothing fancy. Probably just some burgers or chicken and pasta.

If you’re reading this Mr. President… that’d be a much better way to honor my dad. Just call me up when you’re back in Chicago and I’ll make you dinner. Then I’ll tell you all about my dad and the crazy shit he got up to.

A dish that had defined the Filipino people

As the Adobo Connection ad would say, Nothing says Filipino food more than adobo.  Every Filipino has a fond memory of a meal shared over a plate of their favorite adobo whether it is chicken or pork, savory, sweet or spicy, saucy or dry.

Considered the quintessential Pinoy food, every region in the Philippines has its own adobo.  The Bicolanos have adobo sa gata.  The Batanguenos have adobong dilaw.  The Illonggos have adobong kangkong.  There are so many varieties of adobo that it is really a way of cooking rather than one specific dish!​​​

                                                 *********

Definitely Adobo had been a critical part of our daily lives and if you would ask me I’ll include adobo as one of my ulam (viand) at least once a week. Adobo Connection made my obsession with adobo a lot worse but heck! In a very succulent good way!

Their serving is huge! Very filling and in addition to that they have Kanin-All-U-Can, you’ll definitely load up on the carbs but who cares right? When you’re eating the good stuff it’s all worth it, Guilty pleasures as others would say.
