This day sucks.
  • I woke up early 'cos I have a meeting at 9pm, turns out it was cancelled.
  • I gained weight
  • I was waiting for a call from a prospective employer, but it didn't come. Now I'm not sure if I'm getting a job. And I already resigned you know.
  • Then I hit a car parked outside our house 'cos it was sticking too close to our driveway.
  • I missed getting my coffee fix at McDonald's 'cos I was in a rush to get to the office, good thing the drive thru was closed. One of the good things, yeah, but still. NO COFFEE.
Argh. Then there's work.

Today sucked, clearly. But what sucks more is how I reacted to all these negative things. I was such in a bad mood from hitting a car I was in a rage while driving to the office. I cursed at the slow cars along the way, the freakin jeepneys without headlights, the cars parked at frkn street corners, the tricycles, the people not walking on the sidewalk, crossing along Commonwealth. I could've killed a family and not feel a drop of guilt. I know, I'm awful.

But I still thank God.
  • That my parents weren't mad at me for hitting their client's car. Have I mentioned they're a guest at our house? T___T
  • That I arrived at the office safely
  • That I still have instant coffee with me, not iced but it's fine
  • That my dad is very understanding of my driving flaws and never scolded me for my lapses
  • That I'm alive
Hope you're doing good. :)

Also today at Magic 89.9, Boys Night Out - they were talking about instances where you unfollowed, blocked, unfriended someone over social media, and why.

A caller mentioned unfollowing these social media darlings after they became born-again Christians 'cos they suddenly became judgmental and seemingly self-righteous.

I think I know who they're talking about. Being judgmental and self-righteous is a different story but I just want to react to the sudden change. Becoming a Christian is a complete transformation and it's not at all gradual. It's a 180 degree turn from your old self. It's going cold turkey to sinfulness so yes, it's abrupt, shocking, surprising, totally uncharacteristic to the point of seeming like a hypocrite.

And that's the burden we all share.

Chili's now open at Robinson's Galleria

I can't believe I haven't posted about Chili's! I was meaning to put it under Food Phase Fridays 'cos there was a time I got sooo addicted to it. I would crave for their classic nachos and Chili's rice, and Jeckie and I would eat at Fairview Terraces every two weeks. The manager there even gave us free buffalo wings 'cos sobrang familiar na ata kami hahaha. Well, that was before when we could still afford it haha.

Just recently though, we were given passes to Chili's soft opening at Robinson's Galleria so we were really stoked about it. So even though it was scheduled on a weekday lunch and that I'm most probably still asleep, Chili's is Chili's so I gotta make time right?


It's been a long long time since we last ate at Chili's so that day was such a huge throwback. We were given play money to spend and a survey form to fill out before we leave. Cool!

Then we ordered the usual. Classic Nachos for appetizer, Beef Salpicao for me and Monterey Chicken for Jeckie.

Classic Nachos

They have the most delicious and unique nachos!

Beef Salpicao

I super love Chili's Rice. My love affair with Chili's actually started with their rice. I keep coming back for it.

Monterey Chicken

Another one of my favorites, but I'd choose anything with Chili's rice talaga haha

Also, new found favorite: Dalandan Mist! 

If you ever find yourself in Galleria, don't forget to drop by Chilli's for a hearty meal! :)

Chili's is located at Level 2, Robinsons Galleria, Ortigas, Quezon City

Head of the family: not just a provider but a father

Imagine working in a world where time seems to just pass by and almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household.

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.

Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives.

Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us.

As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.

All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs.

Has tatay been constantly complaining about losing strands and strands of his hair every day? Or maybe has he been searching for a way on how to get them to grow back?

Life Lately

To be honest I'm feeling kindof down lately. But it will pass. I'll stop sharing about our wedding planning for now 'cos I feel like it's being jinxed the more I talk about it. Something unexpected came and now Jeckie and I are scrambling to get new jobs. Can you believe it, right in the middle of saving for our big day. So yeah, will bottle it in 'til it's over then dump all the reviews when I'm officially a Mrs. I'm just thinking sayang cos I just learned that wedding related keywords are frkn evergreen. Hahaha On the plus side, I've earned around $200 doing freelance work last month. It's tiring, writing about pool accessories, home repair, and frigging drones, but I'm learning yeah. It's just that sometimes I wish I had more passive income, so I don't have to toil every time I needed extra money. It's like yeah I may be skilled in a couple of things, but it won't translate into money if I don't work extra, which sucks.

Anyway. I'm just so tired. For an unseasoned (just haha ok) writer like me an article a day is quite a stretch. I can't believe I pulled it off though. I'm still so exhausted from all the thinking and researching, but here I am wondering if I could get some more assignments 'cos I need more paypal funds to pay for my bridesmaids dresses hahaha.

Hay Lord. I just need some good news.
