Now what do I do with this? LOL.
It’s a fair amount of US coins that I can’t even exchange for Philippine peso. I’ve been keeping it for than half a year now. I’m taking them as souvenirs. I promise myself to use them again anytime soon. Got two dollars, some pennies, dimes and a few cents. Want one?
I’d like to share with you a favorite food pair since I started eating healthy. It’s mashed Kalabasa (Squash) and a famous Filipino viand called “Sinigang.”
Most Filipinos tend to serve our dishes in variations with the meat used. It may always be pork, chicken, fish or beef. The one in the picture is Pork Sinigang. Sinigang is some sort of stew, distinctively known for its sour taste which is made out of tamarind or vinegar. Through the years, we have already developed a powdered mix so that we can cook it with convenience. I prefer to mix its soup with Yam to increase viscosity.
Oh, before I forget, I started to lessen my rice intake. I would prefer to have sweet potatoes, mashed squash or yam as an alternative.
Ever since I got back from New York City, I have started to fancy A87 (Aeropostale) polo shirts. This is one of the most recent that I have received from a friend who just got back home from the US. I specifically asked her to pass by the Aeropostale in Times Square just to buy me this! Might get the chance to post all of them soon! Much love, guys.
Spent a night with my friend, Stephanie de Leon at Robinson’s Pioneer Manila and she treated me this wonderful tea from Gong Cha! It’s called Wintermelon Tea and I don’t know if it’s just me but I am definitely sure that it’s not your common milk tea. It tastes very, very good!
As I was rummaging through my old things, throwing stuff that are of no longer use, I unearthed a long lost book that I have been looking for for the past two years. It’s a book by Paulo Coelho with the cover title “Like A Flowing River.”
Just like a flowing river, this book contains different stories from different moments and different experiences of the author himself. If I have time, I will be posting stories from the book that I will find worthy to share with you guys. It’s one my most treasured books because more than the fact that it was given to me by my mom, it’s a book that helps me realize lessons in life. I wonder if I can be a writer someday?
This is a shirt (from Art Work, I think) that was given to me by my friend, Trisha Mungcal. There’s something about it that make me love it. I think it’s how the tints of pink is infused with the black and white pattern. The Medusa figure on the picture makes the shirt stronger.
PS I already miss Trisha because a few weeks ago, she had to decide to be in Singapore as encouraged by her parents. I might not be able to see her soon, but oh well, I know she’ll do well.
Last July 2012, I have finally accepted my diploma as a graduate of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde with the degree program of Bachelor of Arts, Major in Consular and Diplomatic Affairs.
During that time, my feeling was towards my honor and gratitude with how God’s faith and mercy in me has been apparent all throughout my academic years. In spite of challenges, he puts resilience in me. In the midst of greatness, he puts humility in me. And even in the urge of doubts, he puts faith in me.
This must be one of my favorite ensembles. Hope you like it you guys!
I’m loving San Francisco! It’s a gift from my friend who visited the Fog City last year. Decided to wear it once more.
