DIY: Old Clothes Into Sexy Off Shoulder Blouse

at 1/01/2018 0 comments
I love to go shopping at the thrift store becasue there are just so many old items which are still in good condition that just needs a little bit of tweaking. I've collected lots of button-up shirts for just five pesos (P5.00) and I knew I can make something of them one day. What I love about button-up shirts are their fabrics and I've been to a textile store and found out that the materials used in those thrift stores brought clothes are somewhat pricey but of the same quality.

Well, thanks to brilliant Youtube DIYers, they gave me an idea on how to turn old button-up shirts into cute trendy off-shoulders. Now, to test the DIY I've seen on Youtube, I will share in this post on how I did this cute off-shoulder I'm wearing below.


The things you will need:


1. Large button-up shirt (men or women)
2. Sharp scissor
3. Elastic band use for sewing (garter) - about 1 cm thick - you will need 1 meter long
4. Thread (close to the color of your fabric)



Instructions:

Get your old button-up shirt and try fitting it in front of the mirror. Mark how large the cutting you're going to make.

Cut it off until it looks like this below.
Lay it on a flat surface and cut straight these two.
Fold it 1x or 2x and secure it with pins before hand stitching using backstitch technique. Make sure the width of the fold will allow your elastic band to go through the hole later.
I cut off the excess fabric and fold 2x the end of the sleeves and hand sew it carefully using backstitch technique.
The final product.

Total cost:

P11.00 DIY off shoulder

Button-up polo shirt (P5.00)
Elastic band - P4.00 per meter 
Thread - P3.00

How To Cook Samyang Fire Noodles 2x Spicy

at 10/31/2017 0 comments
Before embarking on our #SamyangChallenge, of course, we need to learn how to cook or prepare the Korean Spicy Noodles. Actually, it was kinda' like the same as cooking pancit canton but it differs in preparing the sauce.

The difference with the regular pancit canton is, in preparing the sauce, don't throw all the water used up in cooking the pasta because you will need to save 8 tablespoons of that water for the sauce. The noodles need to be a little bit watery in order to mix the noodles properly and to exaggerate the effect of the spice due to the water temperature. 

So, this is how to cook it. It's very easy. The not so easy part is the part where you'll have to eat it! Haha! 

Warning: DO NOT EAT THIS NOODLE IF YOU HAVE A HEART CONDITION. EXTREMELY SPICY!!! PROCEED WITH CAUTION!!!! YOU'RE WARNED!



HOW TO MAKE PINOY STYLE SAMYANG FIRE NOODLES

Ingredients:

Lucky Me Pancit Canton
8 to 10 pieces of ripe chilis (small ones)

Instructions:
  • Crushed the chilis in the bowl.
  • Open the pack of oil included in the Pancit Canton.
  • Mix the crushed chilis and the oil using a spoon while crushing them thoroughly.
  • Remove the remains of the chili together with the seeds from the oil using a spoon. Careful not to include the oil. 
  • Open the chili powder pack included in the Pancit Canton.
  • Do not drain the noodles thoroughly. Leave a little bit of moisture for easier mixing.
  • Enjoy your Pinoy style version of Samyang without spending a hundred pesos for just a super spicy dry noodle. 


Note:
  • I've put it to the test before posting this experiment recipe.
  • Use 8 to 10 chilis for every pack of Pancit Canton. Therefore, if you open 2 packs of noodles, multiply by 2 the pieces of chilis you're going to use.
