A little away from London is a mansion, an old medieval castle like mansion with glorious as well as gory history. The dysfunctional family who owns it hired the Gormet Detective to medievalize the menu. As he was evaluating the festivities of the castle, a jouster turns up dead. The Gormet Detective beleives it is poisoning. The owner hires him for an extra job, to find what poison and who poisoned the jouster.
Easy work for a man with taste? Not really. When you're busy being shot by an arrow then a shot gun, finding out you're the main suspect and getting in between sibling rivalries. What a mess for an esteemed chef!
Personal Commets: Very tasty description of food. I must say, the ending is rather abrupt. In the whole book and possibly the rest of the series of Peter King, the Gormet Detective's name is never mentioned. How does he do it? Read and find out.

To get rid of your old things in Japan, you pay the garbage man to get it.
To get rid of your old things in the Philippines, you sell it. What a way to earn some extra cash.
Diki and I were super sun burned yesterday but it was worth it.
We sold out old clothes, old bags, old shoe rack and other junk we needed to get rid. We didn't get rid of it all but we did get a good amount.
Wen we started at 8:30, people knocked on our doorsteps even before we started set-up. Early birds! Well, they bought quite a lot. After ten, lesser people came. People came by in waves again at around 2:30. It's always fun having a yard sale. People try thier bargaining skills on you.
May pahabol today. She knocked on our door this morning and bought 180.00 worth of old stuffs.
While waitng for customers, I took my camera and took some snaps at my little angels. Well, feeling angels in cat fur.
Broke Back Mountain Cats!!!
OOOH! CAught in the act! Joke!
Fatty takes care of Pepper.
Oh looky! Pepper is growing old already. He's no longer this small innocent cat!
I'll post more meowy pictures at my shutterfly.

The way I see "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" is something psychological. Psychological or plain psycho? You decide.
Grim, a nice bag of bones. Scary but scared all the time. By who? A kid. He wears a dress and is still attached to his "dead" relatives.
Trying to escape from his captors (the kids) shows that he's constantly trying to seek independence. He has all the means but he chose to live in his cruel life and a housekeeper/babysitter/best friend.
He's just stupid.
No kidding. I think he's suffering from ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
You can literally see him bouncing off the walls. It's the things he eats.
Same as Billy. He's a big baby. Wonder how Billy's mom fell for him.
She's patient. Sometimes, she explodes if she can't take it anymore. I would if I were in her shoes.
He's a dork. A dork with a crush on Mandy.
He's your typical loser who puts down Billy because Mandy likes Billy over him.
The lovely, smart and scheming Mandy.
Many is a complicated person. She's mean but she does have a soft side. She has a conscience even when she inflicts the harshest pain on you.
Why she chose the Grim Reaper to be her best friend, we can't tell. They seem to have a love hate relationship going on. Same with Billy.
Mandy is quite girly. She likes doing her nails and wearing a pink dress. Once, she let Grim dress her up.
There are times Mandy is very schemeful but only when you cross her.
True she wants to take over the world. But even whe she succeeds, she keeps Grim and Billy. Why? Grim is a soft side she keeps. He may be scary but he's really sensitive.
Billy on the other hand, I don't know. He's so stupid but she rang his doorbell and asked to play with him. He can't comprehend the rules of the games but she's patient.
All in all, Mandy just needs friends. She may be a rag picker but they are the misunderstood people of society.

Corregidor, where the American made the last stand against the Japanese forces.
March 1, our departure for an overnight stay at the island of ghosts.
So, we arrived at the island a little after nine. Our tour started and we went from one place to another around the island. One of those places was the Malinta tunnel:
Malinta tunnel was dug in a span of 10 years by Filipino prisoners by the Americans. Nobody knows the true extent of the tunnels. This was just the main tunnel. The others were bombed shut. All bodies weren't dug out completely. I'll post a picture when Ria(Tita Ruby's daughter) gives me.
