Every so often, I decide to update my blog’s layout, even if I don’t really end up using the darn thing as much as I should. But ever since the last layout change, I’ve come to the conclusion that I want my blog to look like something you’d expect to see on old newsprint.
For those of you who are unaware of what newsprint is, then you’re probably too young to know what a newspaper is. Which is a shame.
Anyhow, for this layout update, I’ve kept the old settings, and tweaked a few colors (among others). I’m not saying that I’ll be posting often on The Fat Man Today after this, but you could say that this is giving new life to an old blog.
In relation to a new life, I turned 29 earlier this month. Another year, another lease on life, so it goes. And I’m nowhere near becoming a multimillionaire mogul, nor am I closer to becoming the genius savant of Philippine literature (since I haven’t written anything for the longest of time). As far as writing goes, the only decent piece of literature I’ve written this year is a piece that will (hopefully) be appearing on the Manila Foodistas blog. Let’s hope that that helps kick my rear into gear, so to speak.
My birthday also introduced me to the newest love of my life: the Apple Bundt Cake from the Longlife Bakery in Retiro. It was a birthday gift from the girlfriend, and man. I don’t think I’ve ever been that in love with a cake before. The whole thing was HUGE, sixteen slices in all, and was so good that the entire family – and I mean the ENTIRE family – loved it. If you’re ever in Retiro near the Lourdes School, look for Longlife Bakery (or Google Maps it, if you will). You won’t be disappointed.
