Many species of squid are popular as food in cuisines as diverse as Japanese and Italian. In English-speaking countries, squid as food is often known by the Italian word Calamari. I can say that one of the greatest foods that one can eat in his plate is seafood. Besides of the taste it has, it is very healthy to eat. Here's a recipe of Calamares I got from Mama Sita's Website.

(Squid Rings)

Makes 4 servings
6 cups
squid, medium to large-sized
2 pcs
calamansi or half slice of lemon
1 pouch
Shrimp Gravy Mix
½ cup
1 cup
cooking oil

Dipping Sauce:
1 pouch
Sweet and Sour Sauce Mix
¾ cup


Clean the squid, remove the head and cut into rings about 1/8 inch thick.

Squeeze calamansi or lemon over the squid, then wash thoroughly. Drain.

Combine Mama Sita’s Palabok (Shrimp Gravy) Mix and cornstarch.

Roll squid rings lightly in the palabok-cornstarch mixture.

Deep fry until golden brown.

Dissolve Mama Sita’s Sweet and Sour Sauce Mix in water. Boil and simmer, stirring constantly for two minutes.

Serve squid rings with Mama Sita’s Sweet and Sour Sauce or Mama Sita’s Premium or Young Vinegar with crushed garlic, salt and pepper.

Zero House

What can you say about this house? Isn't it stylish? It is nice to live in a home that is unique in style. The style is not the only issue in this house, also the efficiency of its parts. The roof itself is made of high efficient solar panels that provide electricity that can continuously operate up to one week without a hint of sunlight at all. For the plat lovers, it has a tank that can store for over 10cubic meters of rain water. That’s not all; the zeroHouse also processes its own waste products. All organic waste is processed in a digester unit and converts the waste into clean, dry compost. You’ll really love this house for it is completely automatic. The house is monitored and regulated by a “house brain” that can be controlled through any computer or laptop. Isn’t that amazing?

Scott Specht, the designer of the zeroHouse is really a smart guy.

A Goodnight Trap

A bed or just a big mouse trap? At the first peek on this picture I felt like I'm looking at a scene in a cartoon show where the cat sets a trap for his prey mouse. I didn't say that you will like a mouse when you sleep on it. It's a sleep trap, that’s how I mean. The idea is trapping you to sleep so tight. It might be good to sleep here especially if you’re trap to sleep with someone you love.

Egg Rag

Good morning! An egg rag for breakfast isn't tasty…hehehe. You might get a second thought before you step on it, especially on the egg yolk. I, myself will have too. It's an EGG! Remember? But showing off an egg design for a rag and having it in your home is really cool.

This egg rag is designed by Valentina Audrito. I got the image in courtesy of YeinJee's Asian Journal
