Random Kanji Knowledge: Ryouri

Cooking has become one of my go-to hobbies I do when I need to let some stress out. It’s very relaxing for me to take out my frustrations by channeling it into a dish I am preparing. I don’t claim to be a cooking prodigy by any means. Truth be told, just last year I had to be taught how to cut properly with a knife and whatnot. I am basically a noobie home cook at best.

Still, I find cooking to be a very enjoyable activity these days. Whenever I get the chance, I want to bust out the pots and pans to whip up something for my own amusement.

LoL Philosophy No. 1

I have many personal philosophies I follow when I play “League of Legends.” Some of my beliefs are more or less the same as conventional wisdom among the LoL community, whereas some ideas are just what I live by in any given match.

It is literally an anime series about a group of high school students who are brought together by music. Surprisingly, it ended up being of my favorite series to watch in the past few months.

The Forbidden One

With the new banlist now in effect since the start of September, deck recipes have shifted here and there to make way for the addition/banning of certain cards. Some deck strategies have fallen out of favor, while other recipes are starting to gain popularity.

Though technically done before in other varieties, I decided to put together my own take on an Exodia strategy. I play random games here and there on Dueling Network for fun. Exodia is a very unique way to win in the children’s card game world. By gathering five specific cards in your hand, you can declare an automatic victory. In a way, Exodia is technically the strongest monster in Yu-Gi-Oh!/Duel Monsters for this very reason.

Kitchen Courage Part 5

It was just one of those days where I felt like cooking away some of my woes away. Cooking is a great way of distracting yourself from something on your mind.
