Air Fryer Chicharon Bulaklak

A few months ago I blogged about “How to Stop Stress Eating When You are Stuck at Home” so I try my best to be mindful of what I eat and drink. I also came to a point when I stopped myself from eating rice during morning and evening. It was hard but slowly, nakasanayan ko rin siya but after my COVID19 vaccine, my diet was gone because I was craving more foods. I was thinking na baka kailangan ko talaga kumain para lumakas ulit ako, especially after noong second dose ko. 

I’m struggling to go back to my diet again kasi napasarap na naman ako sa pagkain. “I thought about losing weight once, but I don’t like losing”. hehehe! So last week, nagugutom ako so I was planning to cook French Fries pero naubos na pala, then I saw this Cook Express Chicharon Bulaklak

Honestly, my first taste of chicharon bulaklak or ruffled fat was not good. As in nagsisisi ako bakit ko siya binili, ang mahal tapos yung lasa niya “lumang mantika”. Well, what can you expect sa street food na hindi mo alam kung ilang beses ginagamit ang cooking oil. So after that, never na ko bumili and kumain ng chiharon bulaklak. 

But last month, I finally purchased this Ready to Cook Chicharon Bulaklak at San Miguel Frozen and Chilled. Actually, I always add this on my cart kaso sa tuwing bibili na ko, nasosold out lagi so it took me few months bago ko siya nacheck-out. I was thinking “masarap siguro kasi marami bumibili”. 

One pack is 600g and I was happy that it was divided into 4 packs so less temptation sa pagluto ng marami. I only cook one pack to try. I used our Air Fryer, setting is 180C for 12-15 minutes. After eating the chicharon bulaklak, nabago na ang pananaw ko. Masarap naman pala siya kaso nakakahigh blood for sure. Moving forward, I will just buy this pack if I want some appetizer or merienda. Oh di ba, minsan worth it din magbigay ng second chance. :) 

Cooking Instructions: 
Preheat oil up to 180C 
Deep fry chicharon bulaklak for 6 to 8 minutes. 
Drain excess oil and serve.

Bicol Express

The last time I went to the grocery was February so I’m really thankful for online shopping because I can still shop. I’ve been buying and trying the San Miguel food products, ever since I discovered that they can deliver the foods na frozen/semi-frozen. And these foods rescued me last week because I have no energy to cook meals; I was not feeling well after my second dose of the COVID19 vaccine. My husband can cook naman but he is busy working during weekdays. 

One of the foods that I tried is “Purefoods Bicol Express”, it is a Heat and Eat foods that you can prepare using your stove or microwave. I’m not fond of spicy foods so hindi ko rin alam ano pumasok sa utak ko bakit ko binili ito. Hehehe! Kitang-kita ko na agad yung mga siling labuyo kapag open ko.

Pan Heating: Heat frozen product at medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes and stir occasionally. 
Microwave: Partially open lid & heat frozen product at medium to high setting for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir Halfway. 

I used our stove to heat the frozen food. What's nice about the Purefoods Heat and Eat is you don’t need to thaw so literal na heat and eat na lang. This is a good buy if you like spicy food, though medyo maalat lang siya for my taste pero pwede na kung may kanin. Sometimes I also cook this at home from scratch pero non-spicy version so hindi ko alam kung Bicol Express pa ba yun o Ginataang Baboy lang. Hehehe!

Homemade Fish Nuggets

My son loves chicken nuggets so I used to buy store-bought chicken nuggets for his breakfast or school baon. But when the community quarantine started, I stopped buying nuggets. Instead, I started buying or making my own chicken karaage. And this gave me an idea to make fish nuggets. 

I always buy cream dory or pangasius if I want to cook fish fillet so there is nothing new with my recipe. The only difference is, I sliced the fish fillet into bite-sized pieces and I added cornstarch on my breading mix to make it crispier. I’ve been using Crispy Fry Breading Mix for the longest time so yun na talaga gamit ko sa mga fried food recipes ko. I don’t have the exact measurement kasi binubuhos ko lang talaga sa plate yung breading mix and konting cornstarch. 

Homemade Chicken Nuggets 

Cream Dory 
Breading Mix 
Cooking oil for frying 

1. Slice the fish fillet into bite-sized pieces 
2. Mix the breading mix and cornstarch 
3. Coat the fish. 
4. Fry the fish until golden brown. 
5. Serve with lemon butter sauce or hollandaise sauce. 

The photo does not give justice but the fish nuggets are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. My two boys love this so moving forward, bite-sized na gagawin ko.

How to Book the Right Band For Your Venue

We didn’t expect that COVID19 will dramatically affect and change our lives. This virus spreads from one city, one country and until it spreads all over the world. We have no choice but to adjust our lives with the “new normal” like online distance learning, working from home online shopping, and even online entertainment. 

Unfortunately, not all were able to adapt to the global pandemic, some businesses were closed because people are required to stay home and social distancing is a must. Some businesses are still struggling to survive like the entertainment industry. Artists, actors, actresses, and other performers struggle to make a living because making a live performance is not possible. No concerts, corporate events, birthday parties, weddings, Christmas parties, and other occasions that require bands for hire

We don’t know if COVID19 will end or will stay but one thing is for sure, performers are finding ways to perform whether for profit or not; in order to continue their work, market themselves, and serve their audiences. Despite what is happening with the world, there is still good news because a lot of countries are slowly unlocking and easing restrictions. 

Even though virtual events became a new normal now, soon we will have to book the right band for events like concerts, shows, parties, weddings, and more. So let me share with you the things that you need to consider in order for you to book a gig. 

Things to Consider on How to Book the Right Band For Your Venue 

1. Type of Event 

The first thing that we need to consider is the type of event that you are going to have. Knowing this will give you an idea of how many bands do you need to book. Do you need one performer or several performers? 

2. Date of the Event 

Booking a band is not easy as 1, 2,3 especially if you want to book a popular band. Keep in mind that even for a local band with a loyal following, you need to reserve them for 3 to 4 months to give you ample time to look for alternatives in case your chosen band is not available. You can adjust the date if there is a date conflict. And of course, you will have enough time to plan and promote the events.

3. Know your Audience 

You need to know who is your audience in order for you to book the right performers. Ask yourself if you need a small or big venue for the event. Calculate the tickets that you need to sell to earn money. Make sure that majority of the seats will be filled. 

4. Know Your Budget 

The fourth is budget, how much are you willing to pay for the venue, band, staff, and promotion.

5. Book the Right Band 

Knowing what type of event, date of event, audience, and budget will give you an idea of what kind of band you need to book. You can start sending emails, calling agencies or managers, or simply search a one-stop-shop where you can book musicians. The internet is always a good option because you can narrow your search by location, price, ratings, and genre. 

6. Provide Performance Contract 

It is very significant to provide a contract to protect both parties if something goes wrong. Make sure that your contract shows the date, time, venue, fees, and what to expect and not to expect. 

Once you finished this process, you can start promoting your event and make sure that your ticket will sell.

Day 3 in Stockholm Sweden

With all that is happening in the world, I really don’t know when we can fly again. Two years ago, I distinctly remember that I was itching to travel. I wanted to travel on my birthday, school sembreak, and Christmas break but it did not happen. If only I knew that COVID19 will happen, I would definitely push my travel plans in year 2019. 

 “Don’t say “there’s still time or maybe next time” because there’s also a concept of it’s too late”

Sadly, no matter how I wish, I can never turn back time but I can relive those moments. So finally, I will update my Scandinavian series. More than two years had passed already but I am thankful for this travel experience because I have something to look back. We were in Stockholm for 5 days and 4 nights so now let me share with you our Day 3 in Stockholm Sweden itinerary. 

Day 3 in Stockholm Sweden 

Like I’ve said before, I don’t have a prepared itinerary for our trip so we just planned before we hit the sack. This is a sample itinerary on the Stockholm Pass flyer and we planned to do this for our third day. 

Hop on-Hop Offf Bus and Boat SEK520 
Skansen SEK195 
Vasa Museum SEK150 
Prince Eugen’s Waldermarsudde SEK150 

When we were in Europe, we always check the weather so during our trip the temperature was around -3 to 9 degrees Celsius so it was really cold. The start of the Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus is 10AM so we left the hotel around 8:30AM so we have enough time to eat our breakfast at the Central train station.

Breakfast at McDonalds 

For our breakfast we just ordered the 4 McMuffin Bacon & Egg combo, it includes sandwich and hot and cold drinks, the total is SEK180. 

After our light breakfast, we went straight to Bus Stop 21 which is just outside the Central Station. We made sure that we were there before 10AM. There are tour buses passing by like the Stockholm Red Bus Sightseeing Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour but we did not see any Hop-On-Hop-Off bus for the Stockholm Pass. The bus stop started to get crowded and after one hour of waiting, we started to get impatient. According to other tour bus drivers, they did not see any Worldwide Citysightseeing bus.

I don’t know what happened but we were so disappointed. We paid for it but we were not able to use it. We don’t want to wait any longer because time is running out so we just took a taxi to Vasa Museum. We know how expensive taxis are in Europe but we had no choice. 

Vasa Museum Admission Fee 

Adults: SEK 170 
Young visitors: 0-18 years free of charge 

This is part of our card pass so we did not pay any entrance fee. If Denmark has Viking Ship Museum, then Sweden has Vasa Museum; the latter is also one of the most visited museums in Scandinavia. Vasa is the name of the ship that has the shortest voyage in history. On August 10, 1628, Vasa set sail and sank in Stockholm harbor after sailing for 1,300 meters. Thousands of people witness how the ship sank 32 meters below. 

The supposed to be a powerful warship in the Baltic that was built by hundreds of craftsmen became a grave. It was a tragic incident because only 30 crews and guests survived and most of the people were trapped in the ship. After 333 years, the shipwreck was salvaged, reconstructed, and preserved. What you can see in the Vasa Museum is 98 percent original. The museum has 5 levels so it took us more or less 2 hours to explore. You can join a guided tour for 25 minutes and watch the film for 17 minutes.

Skansen Museum 

After our Vasa Museum tour, we went straight to Skansen Museum, it was a long walk but we made it even we are already h-angry. Again, this is part of our pass so we just show our card to enter. 

Skansen Museum Admission Fee 

Child 4-15 yr: SEK70 
Adult: SEK220 
Student/Senior/Group: SEK200 

Skansen is founded in 1891 by Artur Hazelius, it is the oldest open-air museum in the world which showcases the buildings, farmsteads, gardens, and animals of Sweden. Skansen covers an area of about 300,000sqm so it is much bigger compared to Glomdal Museum in Elverum Norway. If you have kids in tow, it is a must to add this to your itinerary. I think you need a whole day to maximize your stay because they have a lot of activities. Don’t forget to get a map and a schedule of activities. 

The museum is open from 10AM to 4PM and some establishments closed as early as 3PM so we had very limited time to explore the place. So we are happy that we were able to visit the Skansen Aquarium, Children’s Zoo, Baltic Sea Science Center, and 19th-century town. There is a close and open-air zoo where you can see Nordic animals and domestic animals. We were able to see European bison, brown bear, moose, reindeer, and other Scandinavian animals. 

We had our late lunch at Skansen Restaurant and we enjoyed the food here. We ordered pasta, waffle, ice cream, and of course Swedish meatballs. 

When we heard that the museum is about to close, we started walking to the exit where Bus stop 12 is located. We failed to visit Prince Eugen’s Waldermarsudde because it is already late and we were tired already. And because of what happened in the morning, we had no idea if there will be a bus in the afternoon but we were hoping na meron. We overheard other passengers, according to them, the bus will arrive so naniwala naman kami kaya nakihintay din kami. We are thankful na may dumating and we did not take taxi anymore.

Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha

Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is an ongoing Korean drama series starring Kim Seon Ho and Shim Min-a. I have watched the majority of drama series of these two celebrities and they are very versatile actors, they are good at drama and comedy genre. Watching the trailer alone, you can already see their chemistry so I know that this series will be a good one. 

I can't wait so even it is a weekly episode, I started watching it kahit alam ko mabibitin ako. As per my research, this is a remake of “Mr. Handy, Mr. Hong, a 2004 South Korean film. The story is about a smart and pretty dentist "Yoon Hye Jin" who moves to Gongjin after she lost her job in the city. She met Hong Du-sik, a jack-of-all-trades who is very special in the neighborhood because he always helps his neighbors especially the elders. 

As of this writing, I already watched the 4 episodes and every week there are always quotable lines, so this post will be updated until I finished the series. 

"Life isn't fair for all of us. Some spend their whole lives on unpaved roads while some run at full speed only to reach the edge of a cliff." - Hong Dung Sik 

"The best thing a parent can do for their child is staying healthy for a long time." Yoon Hye Jin

Money and success aren't the only valuable things in life. Happiness, self-contentment, world peace, and love. - Hong Dung Sik

Life isn't a mathematical equation. It doesn't have a clear answer. There's no right answer either, you're just given a problem and it's up to you how you solve it. - Hong Dung Sik

Puto at Dinuguan

Even I am just at home, I still buy easy-to-cook or ready-to-heat meals in case I am busy and have no time to cook, if I am not feeling well or if I am just feeling lazy to cook from scratch. So I am thankful because there are “Heat and Eat” that you can buy in the supermarket and even online. A few months ago, I discovered San Miguel Frozen & Chilled and fortunately, they can deliver to my address so since then, I’ve been ordering from their store. 

I already blog about their burger, chicken karaage, and tail-on shrimp, last week I finally tried their Dinuguan Heat and Eat meal. I bought this because I don’t know how to cook this meal and I don’t think I will ever try it. I usually order dinuguan in the restaurant na lang, I like the dinuguan of Kanin Club,Goldilocks, Razon’s of Guagua,and Mang Inasal  

I tried Cebu’s Best Rico’s Dinuguan frozen food last year but it was not a hit so it took me a while to order the Purefoods Dinuguan. 1kg is PHP480 so it is a little bit expensive but I am happy that it tastes good, kalasa niya yung Goldilocks Dinuguan. You can reheat this on the pan or microwave. 

Pan Heating: Heat frozen products at medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes and stir occasionally. 
Microwave: Transfer contents to a microwavable container and heat frozen product at medium to high setting for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir halfway. 

The perfect partner of Dinuguan is puto so I remember the Sarap Puto Mix that I bought last year and I immediately cook it bago pa maexpire. Hehehe! It’s been a while since the last time I cooked puto, hindi na gaano trip ng anak ko ito but since last year, nahilig na ulit siya sa puto. I cook puto from scratch or sometimes I used pancake mix or instant puto mix. Check my old blog posts. 

This time, I tried the Sarap Pinoy Puto Mix P60.75, one box is divided into two packs of 200g but I decided to cook everything . You can buy this online, medyo mas mahal lang ng konti. The taste of the puto is good naman, though hindi siya yung sticky puto na parang kakanin. What I don’t like is, 25 minutes to cook so it took me few hours just to finish everything because I have a small steamer. More or less 40 pieces yung nagawa ko, estimate ko kasi kinakain na agad ng mag-ama ko after may maluto. Hehehe! 

Sarap Pinoy Puto Recipe 

200g Sarap Pinoy Puto Mix 
1 cup water 
1/2 cup refined sugar 
3 teaspoons cooking oil 

Half fill steamer with water and boil 
Grease puto molders with margarine or butter. Set aside. (I did not do this because I am using Silicone Cups) 
In a bowl, combine the puto mix and water. Slowly mix for 1 minute. 
Add sugar and slowly mix for 30 seconds. 
Add cooking oil and slowly mix for 30 seconds. 
Pour into greased puto molder about 3/4 full. 
Steam for 25 minutes.

COVID19 Pandemic Turned Me Into a Gamer

Today is Day 540 since community quarantine has started and no one can predict when this will end. This pandemic affected our lives in so many ways and it changes the way we spend our time. It is challenging to live a normal life in these unprecedented times. Sometimes I asked myself if we can still go back to the real normal. 

And because of the lockdown restrictions, we are all experiencing physical, financial, mental, and emotional stress. It can feel quite daunting to manage all of these stresses so we need to find a new outlet to unwind even we are confined at home. 

How do I deal with this pandemic? To keep my sanity intact during community quarantine, I spend my time learning several short courses and designing graphics for my client and business. I rekindled with my old hobbies like reading books, baking, and crafting. I started subscribing to streaming services so I can watch TV series and movies. And lastly, the COVID19 pandemic turned me into a gamer.

Playing games may seem an unhealthy habit and I know that you can be addicted to it but we cannot deny that there are benefits to playing games. Not only kids can play games, but adults can also take time to refresh the mind and body through play. It depends on our circumstances but life is short to focus only on work and family matters. 

Having a balanced life is very important so I am thankful that I have the luxury of playing games to kill time. During pre-pandemic days, I only play games if I am outside like if I am waiting for my doctor’s appointment. I play Wordscapes because I can play this game even without an internet connection. 

Early this year is the start when I really spend more time on games, I started with… 

1. Shopee Games 

Since I cannot go out, I fully embrace online shopping and somehow I agree with this quote “Treat yourself to a little retail therapy” hehehe! Somehow, it relieves my stress because I can still buy what I need and want even in the comfort of my home. But to save money, I started playing Shopee games because I learned that I can earn coins and discount vouchers which I can use for my purchases.

My favorite games are Shopee Candy, Shopee Bubble, and Shopee Farm. It is like playing Candy Crush, Puzzle Bobble, and Farmville. This is a win-win game because you can have fun at the same time, earn money too. I can save up to PHP50 using the game vouchers. 

2. Nintendo Game “Super Mario Party” 

A few years ago, we bought Nintendo Switch for my son but I don’t enjoy playing it. But things changed when we gifted him a “Super Mario Party” game. It was his graduation gift last June, this is a multi-player game so I play this game too. I love this game because, in order to earn coins and stars, you need to play different mini-games. It has 84 mini-games so there are so many choices and I haven’t played all the mini-games. 

Aside from the standard Mario Party mode, you can also play Partner Party, River Survival, Sound Stage, and Toad’s Rec Room. There’s a little bit of exercise because you need to move in order to play some of the mini-games. It is really a fun family game especially during those times when we have no internet connection for several days. 

3. Online Solitaire 

A card game like Solitaire, also known as Klondike or Patience is one of the popular games in the world because kids and adults can play this game. If I remember it right, I was only 9 years old when I started playing Solitaire and other card games. It is so easy to play and, I just learned it by watching my aunt who loves playing this during her free time. The goal is to arrange the cards in sequence and complete the four suits starting with the Ace card. 

During the ’90s, I also play Solitaire on our computer because it is a built-in game on Windows but I don’t know why it was removed. Fortunately, there is where you can play the classic Solitaire online and it is free too. The online game is pretty straightforward so it is not difficult to play. There is a timer and you can earn and lose points too. 

I only play Classic Solitaire so I have no idea that there are other types of Solitaire like Spider, Free Cell, Tripeaks, Pyramid, Gold, and Mahjong Solitaire. I got curious so I explored the website and tried playing Spider Solitaire. There are different modes, you can choose Easy, Medium, and Hard. Of course, I chose the Easy mode which you only need to arrange 1 suit from King to Ace. 

So far, these are all the games that I’m playing while I am stuck at home. Do you know that playing games can relieve stress, improve brain function, stimulate the mind, boost creativity, improve social skills, and more? So don’t feel guilty about playing games, you deserve to have fun too. Do you also play games? Care to share your favorite online or offline games.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing” George Bernard Shaw

Homemade Sapin-Sapin

I’m decluttering my phone gallery and I found the sapin-sapin photos that I took last January. I love kakanin but I don’t have the confidence to cook this at home. The only kakain that I can cook from scratch na alam kong kaya ko ay puto and palitaw. Anyway, last year I saw the different kakanin mix of Sarap Pinoy at Landers. I haven’t tried this brand yet so I only bought the Sapin-Sapin Mix and Puto Mix but this is also available in other online shops. 

When I was young, we always have Dolor’s Kakanin if there are special occasions. It is one thing that I missed ever since I moved to South Luzon area. I like their sapin-sapin so last January, I tried this Sarap Pinoy Sapin-Sapin Mix PHP144.75. I just followed the instructions at the back of the box. 

Sarap Pinoy Sapin-Sapin Recipe 

Sarap Pinoy Sapin-Sapin Mix 
Cooking Oil 
8” round pan 
Plastic liner (cling wrap) 

1. Half-fill steamer with water and bring to boil 
2. Grease 8” round pan with oil and line with plastic liner (cling wrap) 
3. In a bowl, dissolve 2 packs of coconut powder completely in 1 1/2 cups of warm water. Divide coconut mixture into 3 parts. 
4. Dissolve each pack of powder mix into one part of the coconut mixture. 
5. Pour first the ube mixture into prepared pan and steam for 5 minutes or until mixture has totally set, pour in the white mixture and steam for another 5 minutes or until mixture has finally set, pour in the yellow mixture and steam for 8 minutes more. 
6. Cool completely before releasing from the pan. Refrigerate before serving. 

Optional: Top with toasted coconut before serving 

The recipe said it will only take 5-8 minutes per set but I ended up steaming this for several minutes. I don’t know bakit hindi na tumitigas yung white and yellow mixture. Inabot yata ko ng oras so my first try of sapin-sapin was not so successful. Maybe next time, I will use a puto molder baka mas mabilis kung maliit lang gagawin ko. With regard to taste, it is a little bit sweet for our taste pero pwede na if I'm craving for sapin-sapin.

4 Products You Need to Add to Your Skincare Routine

There are so many different skincare products out there and it seems like there is a new one coming out every single day. However, you don't need even half of them to enjoy good skin; all you need is a handful of products to have smooth and supple skin all year long. Once you have your essentials, all you need to know is how to use them properly in order to avoid bad habits that could damage your skin. Here are some of the skincare products everyone should have in their collection. 

A Good Cleanser 

The most important thing is that your skin is clean at all times. This is the foundation for having clear and smooth skin. The worst thing you could do is use the soap you wash your hands with to clean your face. The harsh detergents will strip your face of its natural oils and make it prone to breakouts. Instead, go for a nice, gentle, and hydrating cleanser that has as few chemicals as possible

A Skin Serum 

Serums are all the rage in skincare, and sometimes it can be difficult to understand what they do and how you should use them. Serums are meant to nourish the skin, they are made up of various nutrients that will penetrate deep into the pores. You must use them in the proper order, serum should be applied after cleansing and exfoliating. This is because dirt on the outer layer of skin will prevent the serum from penetrating properly. You also have to make sure that you add it before adding a moisturizer. The moisturizer will lock the nutrients in and keep your skin looking healthy and glowing. 

We would also suggest that you get both your moisturizer and serum from the same brand as they will often be formulated to work with each other. If you're looking for a great line of high-end skin products, then browse the products at SSENSE from Tata Harper. They have everything from cleansers, to eye creams, to moisturizers that you can choose. They also have a wide selection of different serums that you can try. 


Some people think that toners are overkill, but they play a very important role in skincare, especially if you wear makeup. Even if you clean your face properly, there will be some residue left and a good toner will take care of that. It will also help any additional treatment, like serums, work better.


Exfoliation is very significant to get a nice, gentle, and refreshing exfoliator in your collection. One thing you have to be careful with is how often you exfoliate your skin. If you’re exfoliating every day, then chances are you are doing your skin more harm than good. The face also needs that protecting layer to block sun rays. Only exfoliate once or twice per week and make sure that you have a moisturizer with good UV protection. 

These products are all that you need if you want your skin to instantly look better. Learn how to integrate these into your routine and use them properly to get the best results.

Air Fryer Meal: Garlic and Herb Lemon Chicken

Chicken is not my favorite dish but it is always part of my menu list because it is so easy to prepare and cook. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know for sure that I always cook roast chicken and fried chicken because my two boys love them. But aside from those two recipes, I also love preparing Garlic and Herb Lemon Chicken especially now that we already have an Air Fryer.  


6 pcs of Chicken Fillet 
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic 
1 Tbsp Dried or Fresh Rosemary 
1 Tbsp Dried or Fresh Thyme 
1 Tbsp Cracked Pepper 
6 Tbsp of Olive Oil 
1 Lemon (extract the juice) 
Season with salt according to taste 

You only need few ingredients that are commonly found in your pantry. All you need to do is mix all the ingredients and marinate for 30 to 1 hour before air frying. I am using Philips Air Fryer HD9270, the setting is 180C for 20 - 25 minutes. The minutes will depend on the size of your chicken. 

I usually prepare this in advance and I just put the marinated chicken in the Freezer or Prime Fresh section of our fridge. I used to grill or bake the chicken but now I prefer using the air fryer. The taste is also good even without the lemon juice.
