Home alone pudtrip!


Nakakagutom ang pagrereview, kaya naisipan ko na lumabas muna ng bahay at bumili ng merienda. May malapit na Kopi Tiam (or parang Eatery/Karinderya sa Pinas) sa amin, at doon ako bumili ng kakainin ko ngayong hapon. Eto yung mga nabili ko...

Pudtrip #1: Bandung



Ang Bandung ay pinaghalong katas ng rosas at gatas. Sa unang tingin mukha siyang cuticle remover, pero kapag natikman mo, sigurado namang magugustuhan mo ang lasa. Tama lang ang tamis at lapot ng gatas at masarap inumin habang malamig.

Quench your thirst!

Pudtrip #2: Indian Rojak

Ito naman ang Indian Rojak. Ang "Rojak" ay isang salitang Malay na ang ibig sabihin ay "mixture". Iba't iba ang klase ng Rojak at isa na dito ang Indian Rojak kung saan halo-halo ang mga pagkain pinirito tulad ng fishball, squidballs, sausage, itlog at marami pang iba. Meron din itong pipino, sibuyas at siling berde. May kapares itong sawsawan na gawa sa chili, spices, at mani.






Pudtrip#3: Popiah

Ito naman ang Popiah. Kahawig nito yung lumpiang sariwa, ang kaibahan lang ay medyo maanghang ang Popiah. Meron itong turnip, bean sprout, cheese, fried tofu, at chopped peanuts na kasama.






Sarap!



Burp! Hindi naman halatang gutom na gutom ako di ba? Hindi naman karamihan ang kinain ko. Inaamin ko naman may pagka-PG ako, pero ngayon lang ulit ako inatake ng pagka patay gutom pagbigyan nyo na 'ko. Isa pa, mag-isa lang kasi ako sa bahay ngayon kaya walang ibang uubos nito kung hindi ako lang.




Naalala ko yung sinabi ni Kim Sam Soon, "Malungkot ang buhay ko, at pagkain lang ang nakapagpapasaya sa akin."...


...agree naman ako sa sinabi nya.

That I Would Be Good

A song by Alanis Morissette.


When I’m down, I listen to this song.

Even if sometimes, I get tired of wearing a big letter “L” in my forehead, or even if the love that I give out doesn’t comeback, or even if I’m being deprived by the truth that I deserve to know.


And even if life is so freaking unfair, I would be good.


This song serves as a reminder that I am not perfect, and despite of that, I’m still fine, I’m still loved and appreciated.


That I would be good
Even if I did nothing
That I would be good
Even if I got a thumbs-down
That I would be good
If I got and stayed sick
That I would be good
Even if I gained ten pounds

That I would be fine
Even if I went bankrupt
That I would be good
If I lost my hair and my youth
That I would be great
If I was no longer queen
That I would be grand
If I was not all-knowing

That I would be loved
Even when I numb myself
That I would be good
Even when I'm overwhelmed
That I would be loved
Even when I was fuming
That I would be good
Even if I was clingy

That I would be good
Even if I lost sanity
That I would be good
With or without you

Management


We are wronged most of the time. Some people hurts us and by default we want to hurt them back.

In anger, we either go berserk or shutdown.

It is anger that drives us to say things without holding back or hitting the break or pulling the zipper of our mouths.

It is anger that keeps us mum. Because we don't want to put more fire in the spur of the moment. We hold back, speechless but then we nurse the grudge.

Whatever it is that we do to deal with it, loudly or timidly, the truth is that anger brings it's best companions - hatred and suffering.

Well, not to mention heart attack and wrinkles.
