Wag Ka Nang Umiyak

Currently my favorite song to date because, I don’t know. I thought it’s a very very sad song, sadly, it isn’t. HAHAHA. Yes, I oftentimes find myself basking in sadness. I don’t know, a lot has changed with the way how I see life now that tatay has gone to heaven. I get sad over the simplest of things. But I am definitely stronger. Next week, I promise to be BOLDER!

“Ako ang iyong bangka, kung magalit man
ang alon ng panahon, sabay tayong aahon”

I have moved on a long time ago. I am happier now. Sikapin mong maging masaya. Gawin mo namang worth it yung mga nangyari. While I feel like winning because finally, nagkatotoo yung “it’s not my loss”, I am also partly sad (mga 1%…okay, .05%)…pero hindi dahil sayo. I am just sad because paulit-ulit kong pinapakinggan ‘tong kanta. Back to what I was saying, I absolutely don’t regret anything. Totoo yun talaga. Now that we are talking again, hanggang dyan na lang yan. I am not even flattered.

Whatever is hurtful to you, do not do to any other person.

I never thought getting seenzoned is this…heartbreaking. Ang arte, hahaha! Seriously, I feel UNIMPORTANT and FORGETTABLE and it  hurts because it’s true. Huy! Feelings ko naman ‘to and I have the right to feel this way. But it’s okay.

Money Matters

For frequent taxi rider, keep coins with you when you travel and always give the exact fare. You may not notice but most taxi drivers rob you with additional 10-15% from your total fare.

Record every single thing you purchase in a log book to help you track your expenses.

Stop using credit cards. If you have one, make sure you avoid missed payments. And never pay with just the minimum amount.

Try to withdraw money from your own bank’s ATM as much as you can.

Reduce your ATM visits by withdrawing enough cash to last for 2 weeks.

Save at least 10% of your salary for each paycheck.

Give up expensive habits – gum, cigarettes, alcohol, fish ball LOL etc.

Make your own money jar!

Setup an emergency fund.

Learn to invest your money. There are many ways on how you can do that – buy shares of stocks, mutual funds, you can even buy gold bars if you like (they’re good investments) or franchise a food stall/kiosk.

Lastly, always stick to your budget.

Wearing Glasses Now

I didn’t realize my eyesight has gotten worse from excessive use of computer and late night reading. My doctor advised me to wear glasses soon. I can’t! You know I don’t have the patience to wear glasses everyday. It’s very distracting. Besides, it makes me feel really really old. But my doctor told me if I don’t wear glasses now, my eyesight will get worse. Why do I have this feeling that she probably just want me to buy this super expensive prescription glasses from her.

 But in all fairness, my eyesight has improved a little. Dang, I feel soo old!!! I should have ordered a pair of blue contact contact lenses instead. LOL

Spaghetti a la Chuva

When I was young, I never liked eating spaghetti. Don’t ask me why. I just get dizzy that’s why whenever I attend birthday parties, you wont see me devouring on it, just like other kids my age. Not until I tasted Jollibee spaghetti. I super love its sweet blend. Real aunthentic Pinoy dish. Although I find ‘herby’ spaghetti also delicious, I still prefer the sweet ketchup style LOL. For years, I have been trying to achieve that unique Jollibee taste whenever I cook on birthdays, too bad, their recipe is kept secret and I can only come up with my own yummy version. I am sharing to you my recipe. Enjoy!

1 kg. spaghetti noodles
1 kg. spaghetti sweet blend sauce
Vienna sausage
cheese
brown or white sugar
1/2 kg. ground pork
laurel leaves
2 green bell peppers, diced
2 onions, chopped
1 head garlic, minced
3 tablespoons of cooking oil
2 cups of water
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil water, put a tablespoon of oil and salt, do not overcook the noodles. Make it slightly chewy or al dente!
Take out your Le Creuset Cookware and sauté garlic and onions in cooking oil.
Add ground beef, ground pork, laurel leaves, bell pepper, and a cup of water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes.
Add tomato sauce, salt and pepper to taste then let simmer for another 10 minutes
Add brown sugar and the rest of your ingredients. You can also add ketchup if you like. Continue to simmer.
Serve with the cooked spaghetti noodles and grated cheese on top.

Busy


I didn’t realize moving houses can be a stressful time, with lots to do, lots to remember and lots that can go wrong! I just moved in to a new apartment near the office 2 weeks ago, and I tell you, it is very tiring. I’ve been busy buying other stuff that I left in my previous apartment, fixing the furnitures etc. I still have a lot of unpacking to do. Imagine, I still have 2 unopened big boxes loaded with books and some stuff. Someone hand me over a box cutter and I’ll start ripping them off before this day ends.

Can’t Get You Out of My Dreams

 

[audio: http://sq.txdnl.com/mwt/c/h/u/v/chuvaness/playlists/137405/1684889.mp3]

Maybe you soon forget about all
or maybe you’ll miss it like I do

one thing’s for sure:
I’m all knocked out
spend too much time thinking of you

And I can’t get you out of my dreams
Now I know that you’re the dangerous kind
and your smile is tattooed on my mind
And I can’t get you out of my dreams

Don’t wanna write, I don’t wanna call,
– I would not know what to say
It should be you, that’s how I want it to be
Tell me you feel the same way

And I can’t get you out of my dreams
Now I know that you’re the dangerous kind
and your smile is tattooed on my mind
and I can’t get you out of my dreams

Oh, yesterday I was feeling safe
All I do today is trying to be brave
And no melody can seem to soothe my mind
And now I curse you for being so sweet and so kind

And I can’t get you out of my dreams
Now I know that you’re the dangerous kind
and your face is tattooed on my mind
And I can’t get you out of my dreams

Yes I know you’re tatooed on my mind you’re tatooed…..

I listen to this song each night on my ipods (I have plenty of them you know, shuffle, classic and nano lol). I sooo love this song! Exactly what I am feeling these days LOL. Oh dear, how can I ever get you out of my mind? I tried but I couldn’t. You are embedded on my heart, mind and soul! It’s been ages since I last talk to you and I am missing you sooo bad. It’s soo bad it makes me wanna shout and cry all the time. Yikes, so mushy. Hope to meet you one of these days. I wish you well, always.

Becoming an Entrepreneur


I am delighted to have a day job. Not everyone I know gets really lucky to have a work that is not only paying on time but more so, a work that is satisfying, full of pressures yet enjoyable and with wonderful people around. But I am not staying here for good. Someday, I’d like to have my own home based business where I can have  a good profit and luxury of time. For now, I’m still getting all I can from my work but in few years time, I’d really like to focus on becoming an entrepreneur.

I’m Moving!!!

2 weeks from now, I’m moving in to a new place closer to my workplace. I’m not kidding. There’s so much pressure at work and I’m not getting enough rest that I need. I am excited since it’s always been my dream to live in a place where I only need to walk 20-50 steps to get to the office. It’s actually a condo hotel inside Eastwood. It has its own gym and pool area with free wifi. The plan was originally to move in with my cousin Mitchie, since we both work in the same area, but due to some unavoidable circumstance, I will have to move in alone on or before September 7.

So if you happen to be in Eastwood, call me! Let’s have coffee together and make chicka. See yah around.
