I’ve been really sick lately. So instead of going out, I lounge around at home, recuperating. And truly, I’ve become a Tita in my own right. I’m looking at you, @TitasOfManila.
And yes, because I was and am still sick, I am trying to eat healthier food. Aka, I make basic muesli and store it in the fridge because it’s so easy to make and I am really tamed to cook. But my muesli is great! Drop by at home sometimes and I’ll make you one. I’m looking at you, Pamhins of Manila!

On times that I cook, I really make it sure that it’s healthy as well. Though my love for really good corned beef hash and (gulp) SPAM, off to the supermarket to buy real meat with no added sodium. Rustan’s has deals on their meat selection so YAYYYYYYY. Says the sucker for supermarket deals. I need coupons to happen in this country.
And make baon [that is a Spam Kewpie Mayo-Mustard sandwich by yours truly] if there are leftovers (don’t mind the spam peeping under the wheat bread, okay?)
BUT OH GOD, this big tub of Tillamook sitting in the fridge is not helping to keep me away from eating. Hey you gotta enjoy what you eating, right? Clearly, this post is all about food. Because what better things to do but to eat on weekends???? (I’m getting hungry now meh.)
On times that I have energy to drag myself outside, I try to jog (loljk sometimes, that is) and head to the Legazpi weekend market because it’s so near my place why not. And afam or cute college/yuppie/hipster kid spotting. Don’t judge, @BekisOfManila 😛
Jeezus this small brick pizza oven. I want one, okay?
And I found Shahani/Super Starlet‘s milk. From her boobs, I guess 😛
On days that I really have the energy to be sociable aka I am not feverish/achy/sleepy/tamad I exert and effort to see friends. Haha, that is in my zombie form, if I really want to. Seriously though, working the night shift is a bit making me @LolasOfManila faster than ageing through smoking. So on weekends I try to see my family and friends as much as possible.
I met my mom, este my sister pala (but we were with our mom as well) to celebrate in advance her passing the LET. I really believe she’ll make it. She’s awesome at what she does but she really does look older than me, no? HAHAHAHA. Also, mental note to self: try to make it a habit to take pictures with people. I am terrible at taking groupies. But I need these pictures to remind me of my human self when I’m in ogre mode.
I met up with Hanna (with Ella supposedly in the picture) before the big move to Makati over late breakfast, cakes, tea, and rants about the world. My friends deserve an award for tuning me out when I rant. Also (half-)watched Maze Runner with ’em 😛
My roomie and I love the Bleach store so much. And taking selfies by a big mirror. And making faces. And eating and not exercising. /wrist.
Speaking of friends that I don’t see that much… I met Cariza and Jonard over a glass of wine and stories of travel, work, and life plans. But we really did talk about Vaginas of Manila, too. We need to make that happen, bbs!
I really need to get better so I’m publishing this and heading to sleep. Plus, I need my energy back because this weekend I’m going somewhere… and God knows I’ll need all the energy I can get.
