Dear Angry White Road-Raging Americans:

Stop being so angry over little things.

This weekend on my way to my sister's house at an intersection, with the signal on RED, my cellphone rang. I took the call, it was my sister letting me know that she's not home but Samantha is (with her paternal grandparents). The light was still red (with no signs of turning green), an old white man honked at me and angrily (read his lips and facial expression) commanded me to put my phone down. So I did, told my sister I'd call her back cause some white guy's about to have an aneurysm over an intersection phone call.

This morning, I was exiting the corner gas station and was waiting for an opening (to enter the main street) and there was this white woman (Arizona plate I think) who honked at me. I looked at my rear-view mirror and saw this woman who looks like she was having a Tourette's episode. Seriously? You want me to enter the freaking street when cars are coming? I wish she was in front of me so I could've seen her get into the accident she wanted me to have. Annoyed, I looked at him, smirked and gave him a thumbs up. I think that angered him more. WIN!

My sister and I had this conversation before, maybe Asians aren't the bad drivers, maybe we're not doing so badly. The road is full of angry road ragers. Seriously, if anyone is ruining your day, it's you because you're letting people ruin it for you.

To the angry white man in Placentia: yes, it's against the law to be on a cellphone but the car wasn't moving, we were stopped at an intersection, we're not on the freeway. The only "accident" I see happening there is you having a heart attack over a little LITTLE tiny issue. Honk at me when I use my phone on the freeway, ok?

To the angry white woman with an out-of-state plate: If you're in such a hurry, leave your house earlier. I didn't even see you pump gas so I'm assuming YOU cut through traffic by driving through the gas station.

I'm not letting this ruin my day. It's just so annoying and I just had to share.

PS. I'm not saying all WHITE AMERICANS have road rage, I'm just stating the fact that most of my road-rage incidents involved white people.

flourless chocolate cake

Late last year, I discovered Flourless Chocolate cakes via Mother's Market (or was it Tranquil Tea Lounge?). I loved it, it's chocolatey and not as heavy as a regular cake. Don't get me wrong, I love a good moist cakey cake but since flour is not part of the ingredients used, the cake is much lighter. Since I'm too scared to attempt making french macarons again, I decided to try something else. I searched for flourless choco cake recipes online but I almost always visit Ms Stewart's site first because I LOVE MARTHA! (Did you see the Beekman Boys' episode when they visited Martha's to drop off sheep? HOLY CLEAN BARN! <3 love her!) So here's the recipe from her site:

Prep Time 20 minutes Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes Yield Serves 8

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter plus more for pan

  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (or 8 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate)

  • 6 large egg yolks

  • 6 large egg whites

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees; with rack in center. Butter a 9-inch springform pan. Place butter and chocolate in a large bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring each time, until melted; cool slightly. Whisk in yolks.

  2. In another bowl, beat egg whites to soft peaks. Gradually add sugar; beat until stiff and glossy. Whisk 1/4 of whites into chocolate mixture; gently fold mixture into remaining whites.

  3. Pour into prepared pan; smooth top. Bake until cake pulls away from sides of pan and is just set in center, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Serve dusted with confectioners' sugar.

Easy right? It taste great too! :)
