I don’t know what 2017 will bring me but I hope that I will be able to achieve my goals this year.
For the past years, I rarely think about what the future will be for me, maybe because I was very young and still immature back then, I kind of lived in the moment and although I have goals I didn’t do anything to achieve it and I was just not that serious about it. But this year, I will make sure and give every effort that I have to accomplish my goals and future plans. I will do it one step at a time.
So recently I have been craving for a Korean food and really wanted to try a new dish aside from the usual bibimbap that I always order, finally I was able to taste a different kind of Korean cuisine when I went to this amazing place called SaGae Cafe.
I am so excited right now and literally so happy because for months of being at home, I finally landed a job! I just can’t believe that by next year I will no longer be lazing around at home doing nothing. Lol.
I’m sharing this right now with you guys because finding a job that fits your skills is quite hard these days, especially to a person like me who is a fresh graduate and is just starting out, I seriosuly had a hard time these past few months. I honestly was depressed although it was not totally obvious but to tell you the truth, I was. I came to the point in my life where I no longer don’t want to use any form of social medias, I deactivated my facebook account, deleted and didn’t use my twitter and instagram accounts for months because every time I use them I just feel more depressed looking at the posts or updates from my batchmates who are already starting their own career. I was green with envy and it wasn’t doing me anything good at all, so I decided to quit social media at that time because it was already toxic for me, it was just making me compare myself to other people’s achievements and I wasn’t believing in myself anymore, at that very moment I wasn’t able to be sincerely happy for my friends because I felt envy instead, which is not good and I felt so horrible and wasn’t a good friend.
I was no longer happy with my life, I was moping around and thinking absurd stuff like I am never going to get a job because I’m stupid, I am not getting the job I want because I will never going to be good
I mentioned earlier in my last post that I usually am the one who cooks dinner for my family and that I will also be the one to cook . It wasn’t easy cooking six dishes on the same day, it was really exhausting to the point that I already want to sleep and don’t want to wait until 12 midnight and not to mention some of the dishes that I cooked were a total flop. Boohoo. Next time I will cook a lot of food on the same day I’ll make sure to start early so that I won’t get pressured in cooking and I will be able to finish it on time. I was so glad because my family also helped me in preparing the food. Next time I’ll make sure to do it properly and I’ll make sure that I will practice more so that I won’t get disappointed with the food that I cooked. Good thing my Lasagna was a total hit and also my Cordon Bleu.
So what I cooked during Christmas Eve were Lasagna, Cordon Bleu, Bulgogi, Beef Steak, Garlic Buttery Shrimp, and a Strawberry Cheesecake. I wasn’t able to take some nice photos of it because my relatives were already begging to eat dinner because they said that they were already starving so I didn’t have any choice and just let them eat right away. Lol. I do have pictures but I’m still not sure on whether I should post it. Lol.
Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy the holidays with your loved ones! 🙂
I’m not really into drums, but my cousin is, she just performed at their recital last month, and she was really good at it according to my aunt. Although I was only able to watch it through the video that my aunt captured during the show, I was really proud of her because I clearly saw how great she was while playing the drums. This lil john robertsdrumstick is really nice and a good present for her this Christmas. I think she will really like this.
How about you? Do you already have a Christmas gifts to your loved ones? Why not try and give them something that is useful and also something that they will treasure for the rest of their lives? I was so glad I already know what to give my cousin this upcoming Christmas.
From what I remembered, a thin arched eyebrows was trendy during the early 2000’s but as of today, majority of people are sporting a thick, dark or a more natural looking brows.
I only know how to put basic make-up so since I am already old enough to wear some on my face, although I rarely wear any make-up on, if ever I would, what I apply on my face is a concealer for my blemishes and dark circles, a lipstick, and the most important part is to fill in my brows. Then I’m already good to go to wherever I am currently headed for the day.
For how many months I kept on bugging my aunt to buy an oven because I really wanted to learn how to bake and to try out new dishes, so last year just before Christmas she finally decided to buy an oven and I was very happy and excited to use it. That Christmas time I baked a lasagna and a new york cheesecake and I was happy with the result because it tasted good. It is already almost a year and I am already so used to using the oven because whenever I’m not busy I try to make time to try out new recipes to bake.
So to make this long story short, last monday evening I decided to bake because my tito ordered a 4 dozen of red velvet cookies for my mommy’s birthday. I decided to make the dough of the red velvet ahead of time and just chill it for the night so that I can bake it the next morning without too much of a hassle and also to have an ample amount of time to prepare because I also need to go meet up with my aunt at the mall.
When I was done making the dough I decided to bake a batch of smaller pieces so that I could eat it for a snack, when I already placed the dough in the cookie tray, I let it sit first because I still have to preheat the oven and as I was already trying to light it up, I couldn’t find the match in the kitchen and remembered that it was in our living room area (I don’t even know why it got there) so I started walking there for approximately just 8-10 steps and left our oven already turned on and the gas was already leaking out because I thought that it was okay for me to leave it for just a few seconds, like literally a few seconds! When I lit the match and put it near the small hole in the bottom of our gas oven, it suddenly flashed out and the flame was so near my face that I it really scared the living daylights out of me!
My hands were shaking and I was breathing heavily, because I thought that what if it exploded and caused a fire? What if it burned our house down? I was really irresponsible that time and made me think if I still have the guts to bake and use the oven because it kind of traumatized me! Fortunately God is still so good because my index and middle finger were the only ones that got affected, I had a minor burn and although it stings a lot, it is fine with me as long as I didn’t die. lol.
What I did to treat the minor burnt area in my hand, I rubbed an ice cube on it for how many minutes so that it will not get worse and further damage skin tissues. I already learned my lesson and that is to not leave our gas oven unattended even just for a few seconds.
Here are a few burn remedies to treat your minor wounds:
Christmas is my favorite time of the year, not just because I’ll receive gifts (although I’m extremely happy when I do) but mainly because of the weather. I like the gloomy kind of weather, since it’s always hot here in the Philippines, I like it when the sun doesn’t come out and just stays hiding for the rest of the day. I like it when I’m outside and my sweat isn’t dripping from my body and the sunlight isn’t painful to the skin.
I love cooking and because it’s almost Christmas, I have the excuse to cook my favorite dishes and whenever it is Christmas time I am always the one who cooks the food for my family. I love that I get to cook not just my favorite dishes but also to try the new recipes that I discovered. I love it when I get to cook for my family, especially on special occasions. I’m no master chef but it seriously warms my heart every time they tell me that they loved the food that I prepared for them.
I’m thrilled to know what presents I’ll be getting this year, I hope it will be something that is useful. Shoutout to my family and friends, I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m already accepting gifts! Haha! Kidding!
Anyway, it doesn’t really matter if I’ll receive something this Christmas, if I’ll receive something then I’ll be glad but if I don’t then it’s still all right with me, because what’s important is that my loved ones are safe, we’re all together, and I also wish that whatever hardships that we’re dealing right now, that we’ll be able to get through it.
Advance Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you and your family will have a Merry Christmas this year! 🙂
Ever since I’ve known about egg waffles I have been wondering what it taste like because from what I’ve seen on my Instagram feed it really looked so delicious so when I got to taste it at Happy Lemon I ordered their matcha egg waffle although the color is green, it still tasted a like plain waffle. Lol. Disappointing.
Anyway, when I learned about another egg waffle food stall that is currently selling at SM Lanang, I didn’t think twice and went with my friend just to satisfy my curiosity on whether their egg waffle tastes good (because it really looks so good in the picture). We traveled from SM Ecoland to SM Lanang with a public vehicle and not to mention that day was raining like cats and dogs so I think I really made an effort just to try it and I was really excited. We went straight away at the Mercado Locale located at the ground floor of SM Lanang, people were already lining up at the food stall when we got their so it took us like 5 minutes before we got to order. I ordered a matcha egg waffle with a vanilla ice cream and my friend got their plain chocolate flavor. We waited for like another 20 minutes but it is already understandable that we would wait a bit longer since there were a lot of people who already ordered before us, so we decided to look around at the other food stalls at the Mercado Locale as well.
