Blog Spotlight: My Random Food Delight

Thursday, February 16, 2012 Jonette 0 Comments

Hi everyone. I want you to meet my friend, Mik.

No, not really Mik, although she's as cute as the above critter. Honest. 

She bakes, eats, and has this uncanny knack for discovering the tastiest foods off the grocery gondola, or any shop in particular, really. (seriously. I'd say either the food gods must be smiling on her, or she stole something epic from them in a past life, and they can't have it back. Ever.)  

If you've ever wondered if there is life beyond well-known food brands and run-of-the-mill snacks, My Random Food Delight shows you what treats to try the next time you meander through the supermarket. If delicious food, unusual finds, and adorable critters to punctuate posts are your idea of a good time, then this blog is for you

So go on, click that link. Go. Now. Click. Get over there. Like right now. 

No animals were harmed in the making of this blog post. The adorable critters are for looking. Not eating. Just so you know.

So, I'm on a Jose Rizal Roll right now.

The man is an inspiration, and quite an impeccable dresser. Him, and his coterie of Ilustrados, I believe.

This makes me start thinking about a number of things: the environs and atmosphere at the time, the position of women in society during his lifetime, and how he would have influenced these and changed everything had he lived longer.

This brings forward another speculative idea: Rizal, Luna, Bonifacio, Mabini et. al. have successfully overthrown Spanish rule and the Church's iron grip on the public. The political and societal landscape of the Philippines in the l800's have drastically changed. Women now have access to education and critical thinking, are allowed to hold properties and jobs once thought exclusive to the masculine realm. Women now also enjoy certain liberties in terms of gender, choice, etc. How would this affect the Art of Dress in that period?

I’m verging a bit on Steampunk in the Philippines, gender symbols and clothing, and more. I still need to research and let my mind generally play around with the idea. We’ll see what comes out of this madness.

Note to self: Read his letter to the women of Malolos.
