Every person has that one friend at their job that brings the banging coquito. You can get the same taste at home with 5 ingredients. No boiling eggs, no steeping, none of that just a cheat sheet. Are you ready?
1 cup of E&J brandy
1 Bottle of Turkey Hill Egg Nog
1 can of Sweet Evaporated Milk
1 cap of Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon Sugar
You can use a little less liquor because I'm heavy handed. You can also use Rum instead of Brandy. If you don't have cinnamon sugar, you can make it by adding cinnamon and sugar together. If you have cloves, those are also great to add that spice in it. Happy Holidays!
The holidays are usually an extremely busy, happy time for Cor and I. This is Sai's second Christmas and although he was more active this than the last, for me, this year just seemed so much harder. We were mad broke. This broke was to the point where I couldn't afford to put lights on the tree. Nobody noticed. We didn't buy him gifts until two days before Christmas and we no longer have our car. At a time where togetherness seems to be the norm, our situation prevented us from truly being together. I was always at home because I didn't have the funds to travel with them to take Sai to school.
I do believe that hardships are a testament of our strength and commitment to ourselves and each other but this shit was "tew much".
Still thankful though.
My dad had taken Sai yesterday but Cor and I didn't have the funds to go out and have a good time. Instead we had a Chinese and Chill session (the Netflix has been off since last week)
We argued so many times this month. So much so that I lost count. However, hiding from our friends, pigging out on spicy pork fried rice, binge watching Quantico and cuddling on our couch was probably the best weekend I had with him in months. Just goes to show you that money doesn't mean everything.
For 2016, I have high hopes. I hope that Cor and I can keep the newly founded bond that we built over the poorness in 2015 but at the same time maintain the honest relationship that we worked so hard on. I aspire to be a better spouse for Cor and a better mom to Sai. A better friend to my framily.

Greetings to all I come to speak my piece on the sorcery that I’ve witnessed in the past couple years on Instagram that I just so happened to come across during my hours of creeping and low key likes. The profile of MUAs has really blown up something serious, it felt like that time period when everyone you knew was hustling Avon products and trying to set up in house presentations and Avon product parties. Like in all job fields it’s a pretty competitive field, so in order to stand out you got to show your work on them Instagram streets. My Instagram feed is usually filled with amazingly beautiful women of Instagram, some scantily clad bartenders/video vixens and other Instagram fame figures running the 300k+ followers and up club. I found that when these women traveled to different cities for club appearance, they would reach out to MUAs in the area and ask them to send them their IG page to see whether or not they would want their face “beat” by one in particular. Where the term “beat” came from I have no clue, shit sounds crazy especially how sensitive society has become with domestic violence and all that but that’s another topic for another. Back to the MUAs. So, me being the nosey ass Cancer male that I am, I go on to some of these MUAs pages and the before and after posts of their works is STRAIGHT SORCERY. I salute any MUA that can turn a female who is a decent 3 with no makeup on to a strong 9 with makeup on. With only the tools of Mac cosmetics box, these MUAs are like surgeons. I’ve seen photos of women who could pass for someone’s grandmother in the before photo, look a whole 20 years younger in the after photo. These before-after photo leave me completely flabbergasted, like it’s really a scary sight because you run into strong 9s in a public setting and you think you got yourself a nice catch. Find out later on when she get comfortable and decides not to wear makeup around you that you actually got yourself 135lbs Gabourey Sidibe. The downside of the MUAs is the rate of deception in society, as a man we already got to deal with women and their waist trainers that keep the muffins and the iHop pancakes in when the ladies are out in public. Now we got to try and see through the meticulousness of these MUAs’ work to see if a woman is truly beautiful. The streets are not safe no more for the single fellas. I speak for the single males who just trying to find a beautiful chick to call my own and to build with. Times have changed though; streets are filled with Decepticons of all shapes and sizes ready to pounce on us innocent men. By all means I’m not saying women who wear makeup are bad, because in actuality I can see myself courting a female who wears makeup. I just can’t commit time to the women who NEED makeup to feel beautiful. There’s a huge difference between the two. So shout out to all the MUAs out there putting in that work in these Instagram streets, I hope I didn’t ruffle a few feathers with this blog, women are sensitive so I know I will get called ugly and wack for this blog. I want to say thanks to Rana, for letting me guest blog, I miss blogging so this is like a quick fix for me. I now just tweet my crazy thoughts on my twitter @B_Dini check me out and I hope to get invited back to guest blog again on RayeSocial.com. Happy Holidays!!
