So for those of you who are Gluten Free, have you missed eating cream of wheat? Boy I have! Cream of wheat was a winter favorite of mine and now I have found something that feels just as creamy and smooth as it but tastes even better! Montana Gluten Free also makes a Cream of Oats which rivals or surpasses cream of wheat. Below you will see a picture of my Cream of Oats with brown sugar and soy milk that I ate this week.

After the Gangnam Style craze, now comes another South Korean dance moves called Gwiyomi. According to Wikipedia, "Gwiyomi" or "Kiyomi" is Korean slang used to refer to a cute person. The lyrics of the song can be interpreted as "1 + 1 = Cutie, 2 + 2 = Cutie", etc.
Gwiyomi (귀요미) is based on the adjective "gwiyo-un" (귀여운), which means cuteGwiyo captures the meaning of cuteness, and "-un"is a form of conjugation to be altered for each intended usage. Ending an adjective with "-mi" (-미) has the effect of personifying the adjective, thereby turning the word into a noun. Thus "gwiyomi" means a cute person.
The Gwiyomi Song is a K-pop single by South Korean singer Hari and was released on February 18, 2013. It was inspired by a gesture from K-pop idol rapper Jung Il Hoon called Gwiyomi Player, which became an Internet meme in October 2012 following its appearance on the variety show, BToB MTV DiaryMany.
If you haven't yet joined the craze, maybe this Gwiyomi dance guide will inspire you to try it out but these steps are easier to pull off if you're already cute so proceed with caution otherwise be ready to become the subject of ridicule if you're not, hehehe ..... just kidding! ;-)
Here's my 5yr old niece, KODY to teach you the basic moves ...

View here how these siblings, my 10yr old nephew and 5yr old niece pulled off the GWIYOMI moves.

This week was truly an epic week for TV viewing. My two favorite tv series was on for a showdown, Walking Dead Season 3 aired its final episode while Game of Thrones Season 3 is making its premiere. 



I have to watch ahead of the Philippine airing and as always had to source it online as soon as its up. 

My thoughts after watching :
  • There were many kills and one sad goodbye in TWD finale but none that broke my heart. Can't wait for  Season 4 and lets see if the governor is still capable of retaliation.
  • While walkers' massacre took place in TWD, white walkers are getting ready to inhabit GOT.
  • GOT is a visual feast of medieval proportion, what's not to love, just hearing the names Lanister, Daenerys, Starks etc. already gets me excited, so bring on the GAME.

The Walking Dead Finale will air this Saturday here, 8:30 at Fox Channel while Game of Thrones Season 3 will premiere this April 2013 at HBO.
