Welcome to My New Work Life

Last February, I  made a decision to resign from my job as a Local Store Marketing Coordinator of Gerry’s Grill, my last day would have been March, but I ended up getting offered to work at the head office as a Digital Marketing Assistant. I gave it some thought and accepted the job even though I haven’t seen the formal offer. Some would say it’s not a very good decision because the head office is in the North and I’m from the South. The travel time and expense would kill me. Plus, I don’t even know how much I’m getting paid or what the benefits are. It didn’t matter. I have aired out my reasons to other people who doesn’t seem to accept it so I wouldn’t lay out the details here. But one thing’s for sure, I am happy where I am right now even if it takes me 2 hours to get to work from my house. This is my new work life. :)

Resto Challenge #01: Nathaniel’s

Part of my goal this year is to try out different restaurants, and this happens to be the first. Mom and I, with her friend, went to Nathaniel’s for lunch one Sunday afternoon after church. I’ve heard of that place before but didn’t know it was a restaurant.

Nathaniel's

It’s a small place in Molito, Alabang, and has the canteen vibe to it. I didn’t take pictures of the inside. They sell puto, puto pao, siopao, siomai, and other local delicacies. Nathaniel’s originated from Pampanga, and I’m so happy they have a branch nearby where I can go and buy my favorite puto pao.

#FlashbackFriday : My Trip to Jakarta in 2005

I had the sudden urge to visit my old blog from 2005, back when I treated blogging as my diary, where I write uber random things and the writing style would surely annoy any present blogger. I considered importing the whole things here for the sake of “having proof” that I’ve been blogging for a decade already (started in 2003 by coding the posts manually and then moved to tblog.com in 2004), but that wouldn’t be advisable as my posts back then were ramblings of a 20-year old blogging newb. So I decided to re-publish some notable personal posts instead, like my trip to Jakarta in 2005. You know, to relive the memories. ;) I am posting it as it is, with a little reformatting to make it more presentable. ;) Continue reading →

Jack La Lanne’s Power Juicer

Jack La Lanne's Power Juicer

I’m really not proud of my photo editing skills right now, but this will do.

On January 19, 2014, I purchased Jack La Lanne’s Power Juicer from Lazada. I initially wanted the Shake n’ Go Smoothie Maker but mom convinced me to get the juicer instead as it will have a healthier purpose in our lives. It arrived 4 days later, which was very quick, in my opinion, although I kinda expected it to arrive because Lazada sent me a message every time there was progress with my order. The first one was informing me that my order was processed, and the second was when it was sent out to be delivered. I estimated it to arrive within 2 days and it did. AWESOME SERVICE!

11 Instagram Photos with Pugs in an Hour

I am so tired from the day’s activities that I went straight to my room after juicing half a watermelon. I went down again because mom was calling me. She slipped and couldn’t move for a while but don’t worry, she’s okay now.

Anyway, after that incident, I saw Damon gnawing on a watermelon rind and it was so cute to I started taking photos using mom’s iPhone 4. I just want to share them here coz the pugs are so cute.

#FlashbackFriday, according to the Urban Dictionary:

Since posts usually end up in my drafts folder for months, I decided to use this meme when writing about things that happened in the past that I wanted to write about, but never got around to actually doing or a thing that happened before the internet/I started blogging.

Without further ado, here’s the story about The Sales Blitz Experience of 2013.

2013 Christmas Shopping

This is a really late post, but if we knew each other personally, you’d know that I’m not one of the fashionable ones. I rarely buy new clothes and I usually shop at an ukay-ukay rather than at branded stores. Some of my nice clothes and most branded ones are gifted too. But that changed last December. See this picture..?

Yeah, the ones on top were bought at an ukay-ukay while the ones in the bottom were gifts from mom. <3

The Frap Bar

The Frap Bar I’m not a big fan of warm/hot drinks. When Starbucks became a house name here in the Philippines, I wasn’t sold on their products. I’m not a coffee drinker, nor do I conform to what’s “in”. We rarely go there, and if we do, I would always order a frap. We live in a tropical country where it’s always warm and I would rather enjoy a cold beverage. Although there are the rare occasions where I would buy a tall order of their signature warm chocolate. Moving on…
