Hi, my name is Alisa and this is my thumbbook.
Thumbbook is a collection of different things that I find interesting on the net. It’s a personal blog, that holds my thoughts on my favorite video games, recipes, movies, books and stuff.
Why the word thumbbook?
Before I got so hooked on the internet, I loved thumbing through books at the local library/ bookstore, hence the name, thumb…book…THUMBBOOK. Of course in Filipino, if you say “thumbbook” (Tambok) it means “plump”, in the Cebuano dialect it means “fat”…but what the heck…as some of my chef friends would say…Fat is flavor 🙂
Aside from this blog, I also do social networking/bookmarking and online research. I’m a happy stay-at-home mom to a bouncy, talkative 10 year old boy, and a wife to a singing graphic designer. I love taking pictures and recently we have gone back to using the old Ricoh KR-5 SuperII to take pictures instead of the digital camera.
I learned to cook online thanks to all the wonderful blogs I’ve visited and I have actually mastered pressing F5 to get the cooking video rolling again before my food burns. Hopefully this year I’ll get better in photoshop so I could publish my food photos.
This is me, and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading through my posts.
Thanks for stopping by!
