#Lola Problems

Jul 15, 2015

I have been on therapy for my metatarsalgia on my left foot and meniscus on my right knee for the past weeks now.  Doing this for 6 sessions and I am currently on my fourth.  The pain on my knee started last February during our epic Singapore and Malaysia tour.  We walked too much until my knees gave away, hahaha.  But the metatarsalgia was a surprise because the cause was said to be wearing of ill-fitting shoes but I can't remember doing this.

Anyway, I think this is one of those #lolaproblems that we encounter as we age.  I will just try to manage my activities so as not to impact my knees and feet any more than necessary.

But this won't stop me from climbing those mountains nor running those fun runs :)

A Buffet Lunch at Seven Corners, Again

Jul 14, 2015

Thanks to the Citibank 50% promo, we had lunch at my favorite restaurant, Seven Corners in Crowne Plaza Galleria. We paid only P884 for a great lunch experience! Of course, I had two plates of my favorite steak and lambchops, 2 plates of the Japanese spread and 2 servings of ice cream for dessert. Yep, gluttony is one of my favorite sins!

My first plate of steak and lambchops. Grilled medium rare, with a side of mint and gravy. Yum!

2nd plate of steak and lambchops and some salmon, with the gravy on a separate plate and mint jelly on the side.  These 2 plates alone made the cost of the buffet worth it!

My first sushi plate.  I didn't get anything else anymore other than the tuna salad which was so good!

The shrimp cocktail was divine too!  Too bad I was too full already after those steak!
I just had to try their pasta, and the penne in carbonara sauce and extra bacon was yummy!
My salad plate with some feta cheese and some more tuna salad. 
And my desserts! I had a total of 3 scoops of teppanyaki with lots of nuts and some cheese and a small cake.  I was too full already by this time!
And to cap off the delicious lunch, a pot chamomile tea is just what we needed.
I really loved eating at Seven Corners. Good thing there are promos so that we get to save some money, and that we do it only once a quarter! But still, it was so worth it!

Burger Night

Jun 5, 2015

My two younger kids are on vacation at my sister and there are just the three of us adults at home (my eldest is 17). Nobody wants to cook so we just went out for burger. The burger was good, and the conversation was even better.  We had a very relaxing dinner over nice conversation. We miss the two young ones! We realize that each of us has a responsibility at home and with the family and when we are not complete (even temporarily), each one is terribly missed. 

Back to the burger, the joint is called Brixton Burger.  For P60, the beef cheese burger with cheese was really a steal.  The potato wedges were good too, except that it was too little for the price of P30. They also do not serve meals and each item had to be ordered separately.  But it was still good. And I think we will be coming back again.

My Third Adsense Payout

May 12, 2015

I have been blogging since September 2008 and today makes it 2,415 of blogging over 7 blogs. Since then, I have received two adsense pay outs, monies from writing gigs and paid posts, several prize winnings from contests, products, freebies and free movies.  All in all, blogging has been both fun and a great sense of passive income.

Last end of April, I got my third pay-out for Google Adsense after reaching again the payment threshold. The first payout was in May 2009, then second April 2011 and then today. 

Not bad, considering that I only do this on the side and have not yet seriously considered doing this full time. Yet.
