wonderful day


ethnobotany moment of the day: native peoples in Southeast Asia using wild carnivorous pitcher plant traps to cook rice in bc honestly why not??? apparently it’s a totally chill and normal food and it’s sold in farmers markets and stuff. heres the recipe thats most popular to use too (transcribed in the left photo) in case you can’t read it:

“1. Take 24 large pitchers. Wash carefully, then soak in several changes of water, preferably overnight. Soak 1kg of glutinous rice overnight.

2. Cut off pitcher trendils.

3. Boil the rice with coconut milk and salt.

4. Wash and cut up two cupfuls of fresh prawns. Finely slice half a cup of red onions. Pound a knob of shrimp paste, 4 or 5 chilled, a few spring onions and a few celery leaves. Combine the pounded ingredients with the prawns and fry in a small amount of oil until fragrant.

5. When the rice is half cooked, remove pan from fire. Cool water slightly. Half full the pitchers with rice, add one tablespoon of the fried mixture. Fill up the pitcher with rice.

6. Stand the pitchers in a steamer, cover, steam over boiling water for half an hour. Serve hot or cold.”

So..thank you. Thank you so much.

This may sound rude, but what's your opinion on Vanessa? I find it a little strange that people ship Usnavi with someone not even in In the Heights and (most of the time) erase one of the best female characters? Do you pair her with someone else? Thanks for your time

Hey pal, I’m a gay man who works really really long weeks and I just want a little representation. Its not hurting anyone and it makes my friends and I really happy. I’m sorry if thats not enough for you.

Personally I ship Vanessa with Carla or Nina (but I love Nina and Benny sm)

If you are missing out on content or representation you can always make your own, I mean thats what I am doing.
Plus there are a few Vanessa heavy blogs out there to follow! There is the musical also.

Sorry please don’t hate me :( I’m a simple man with simple pleasures drawing shit on the internet. It helps me wind down from working two jobs and Im not upset about that

I was having too much fun with this 27-minute MMA workout this morning! That little jumping punch in the second to last clip? It’s called the “Superman Punch” 😂 For real though, I was dripping in sweat by the end! You all know I can get you a FREE 14-day trial of these workouts I do, right? Drop your email in a comment or send me a message and I’ll send you the link 👌🏻

#so much tongue #so little time

Yet a new day with such a fine person like you who has changed me so much so there are no words to describe it, not even the stars or the sunset. Let us hope for an eternity together.
