Injury

Before I went out for a scheduled long run, I prepared myself dinner one of my favorite combis: liempo and okra. My pork liempo is oven-roasted since I can’t grill in my flat. Partner them with a spicy mix of bagoong isda and vinegar and the result is da bomb! I only have to content…

Pusit Some More

Pusit, pusit some more…a la la la long…. If alam mong ituloy ang lyrics na yan, #alamna na hindi ka millenial. Haha! Pero maiba tayo, hindi pagiging #alamna ang punto ng post na ito. Ito ay tungkol sa yung sabi ko sa sarili ko na babalik na ulit ako sa strictly one cup of rice per…

Wais

Despite the high blood pressure na inabot ko sa work kanina, I am very happy today because my orders from Amazon UK arrived.  Amazon is my go-to store for stuff which you can buy cheaper than in the brick-and-mortar stores.  They also have a variety of brands to choose from although be careful because some…

Finally Found My Pancake

Pancake na pagkain ang sinasabi ko at hindi yan term of endearment ha. Haha. Anyways… It’s been awhile that I was looking for the pancake recipe that I really like. I am slowly becoming a fan of home cooking over eating out and buying ready-made mixes.  For one, it is really very expensive to dine…

Dad’s 67th

I want you to know that I will achieve all my promises I whispered to you 5 years ago. I love you and I wish you the best birthday in heaven.

Happy 67th birthday! 🙂 

Basa

I didn’t grow up with books, I mean reading books as a hobby.  Growing up in the province, madali lang kasi i-solve ang boredom just by going out and playing with your friends.  I think children should be introduced to reading early on because they will carry this trait when they grow up.  On my…

Kinderdijk

Pardon my super late post since this happened last September 2016 pa. Mag-iisang taon na. As if naman may nagbabasa ng posts ko. Hahaha! Anyway, my blog is for my personal consumption only. Let’s just say it’s my way of writing down memories or happenings sa buhay. In my almost 4 years in the Netherlands,…

Happy Fathers Day

Happy fathers day to you Daddy in heaven.  I hope you are having a great time with the Father of all fathers.  Thank you for everything you have done for us and inspiring us to be better individuals. God was so good to us that he replaced the 10 years that you were not with…

Lost Chances

Two years ago, we decided to help send to school three relatives aged 14-15.  This practice of extended families and helping them is common in the Philippines. Their environment in the province is one where education is not taken seriously, thus we took them with us to Manila.  These are teenagers who has lagged so much…

Chef for a Day

I now have a new level of respect for chefs, cooks and especially for mothers and family members who prepare food for their families simply because they don’t get paid for doing so. I feel this way because I prepared all of my food today from scratch from breakfast to dinner. Although I learned to…

Mommy

I’ve always had this middle child syndrome that I am always taken for granted. No matter what achievements or help I’ve given my family, it will never be enough because they always have their attention and affection on my Kuya or on our Bunso. I’ve always felt my siblings are unfair because they can always…
