I am fond of trying out new restaurants and cafes so every time I discover new places here in Davao City it really excites me, because I like trying different kinds of cuisines and to taste new flavors that would suit my taste as a food enthusiast, but it doesn’t mean that if the food that you ordered in a restaurant/cafe is expensive, it will be automatically going to be delicious. ūüė쬆I have already experienced

South Korea: My Dream Destination

Ever since the day that I tried Korean food I have always been a fan of it, and I have tried eating at a couple of restaurants here in Davao that serves tasty korean dishes. When I first tried eating at a Korean restaurant which was introduced to me first by my cousin, who is a huge kpop fan, she recommended me the Samgyeopsal, and it is a Korean dish that is basically a grilled bacon cut meat, that is also served with lettuce, rice, garlic, and a korean chili paste. You can combine all of them, put the rice, garlic, chili paste and the

Selling my clothes

My closet is already full and I do think that I need a closet upgrade, so I decided to sell my preloved and also those brand new clothes that I haven’t worn yet through instagram. This is already my second time in selling my clothes online, but it was already like two years ago. I did not just sell my clothes but I also tried selling Kimbap (it is a Korean delicacy, it’s like a sushi roll) and it was such a hit during that time and many people ordered from me. It was really heart warming when your customers are satisfied with what you are selling.¬†
 
I also plan on selling cookies and other desserts in the future, but for now I just really need a closet space and to also have a new wardrobe. I also need the money so I think online selling will really help, and it is also hassle free since you’re just at home selling stuff.¬†

Jadine

Jadine is not a place, it is not a food, and it is also not a type of animal. If you still don’t know yet then let me tell you something about jadine. Jadine is one of the most popular “love teams” here in the Philippines, if not one of the most, then it is definitely the number one love team in the Philippines.
 
So I attended their concert last friday at SM Lanang SMX convention center here in Davao City although I am not a hardcore fanatic (not like my aunt she’s crazy about them). I really enjoyed watching the show even though at first I was a bit hesitant to go since the waiting line was so long and not to mention the time that we waited there was excruciatingly painful. I mean literally painful because my feet was already hurting and i was already

21 and I still don’t have a job

The title of this post says it all.
 
I literally don’t know what to do with my life and I’m already 21, so I basically just graduated last March, but it has been 6 months and I still haven’t found any job yet and I’m already so pressured since everyone in the family has been bugging me to get a job already which is pretty annoying. I feel like such a failure right at this moment in my life and I literally feel like crying. I just don’t know what to do anymore. I am trying to find a job but unfortunately no one hired me or I hadn’t got any response yet from the companies that I sent my resume to.¬†
 
I just really want to start working already but every time I have an interview, I am always nervous

As I mentioned on my¬†first post, I love to eat and because I love eating, of course, I also love to cook and I am usually the one who cooks dinner at home for my family whenever I’m not busy or if I am not that lazy to cook. Whenever I am out with my family or friends and if I am cooking something special, it already became a habit of mine to take a picture first of the food before actually eating it and it usually takes me a bit of time because I need to get a good angle before capturing the food. lol¬†
 
At first, it annoys me whenever I’m at a restaurant and I take some photos of the food that I just ordered because I can see some people who are looking at me like they can’t believe I took a picture of the food that I am about to eat, it feels like I committed a serious crime when all I did was took a picture of my food. lol. I don’t really have to explain myself on why I take pictures of my food but just so you know it is because I just like to share it on my instagram account simple as that. LOL
 
As the time goes by I already got used to some people looking at me or judging me while I am taking photos but I don’t mind them anymore because I like what I’m doing and as long as I’m not doing anything that is illegal I will continue doing what I love. Other people just have to get over themselves and stop scrutinizing every little detail about other people.¬†

Student no more.

I just graduated last March 20, 2016, and I can finally say that I did something in my life that my mother could be proud of. I would not have been able to accomplish this great milestone in my life if it were not for the help of my family who had supported me since day one, not just financially but also for their encouragement.
In the day of the 20th of March was one of the best day of my life, my emotions were all over the place during that time, I was so nervous and at the same time excited as I was marching on stage to get my diploma, until now it still feels surreal that I am already done in school that, I am no longer going to think about my capstone project, and not to mention dealing with some people that were the reason on why I was stressed out. 
 
I still can’t determine whether I’ll be able to miss being at school since it’s still so fresh from my memory that it feels like I just got out of jail and able to breathe fresh air. LOL kidding. Although it is for sure that I won’t be able to miss making my homeworks or projects but I sure as hell going to miss my friends because they were the ones who cheered me up whenever I’m down because I flunked my exam or my quiz. lmfao. Aside from that; I will also miss hanging out with them at school doing nothing while waiting for our next subject, I’ll miss eating streetfood outside the school with them, fight with them because of petty things, ditching our next class because we can, and I will surely miss the times that our stomach hurts because we’re laughing too much. I don’t even know if my college experience will be that enjoyable if it weren’t for them.¬†
My college moments will forever have a special place in my heart and I will forever treasure it whether it will be good or bad, it will forever be engrave in my heart and in my mind. <3

A healthier me, maybe?

It is so cliche how I titled my very first post here but don’t judge me please since I’m still new to this “blogging” thing. Anyway, first of all, I am Mariel and I’d like you to know me first before you start reading anything that’s in this blog.(As if someone would actually read this!)¬†
 
I really like to eat, like really like it so much, and I sometimes think that this is my purpose on why I was born in this world. I love pasta so much especially the short types of pasta because it’s hassle free when I eat it, but any type¬†is also fine with me. Not really that picky when it comes to food.
 
This is the main reason why I always gain weight like every minute. I love eating unhealthy food like junk foods and anything that can be bought at a fast food chain. This may sound a bit off-putting to some of you who will read this (okay, let’s just say that there will be someone who will read this lol) but I really like greasy food those with too much oil like french fries, burgers, and the like. I like to eat a lot of salty food that’s why I’m kind of bloated the past few days.¬†
 
Although¬†I tried to eat something¬†healthier like eating green salads, fruits every day, but the thing is I wasn’t able to last for a month. I’m not really that determined, and I still don’t have enough self-control to stop eating all these unhealthy tempting stuff around me.¬†
 
This is getting too long and boring so I need to get to the main point in why I am writing this as of the moment because this year I need to start eating more vegetables and fruits instead of eating junk all day. I want to get fit and be healthy for the future me. Naks!
