Pinoy Street Food: Betamax

Jan 27, 2016

Do you what a betamax is? Those are the forerunners of CDs and DVDs used as video storage and they are now largely obsolete.  They are rectangular black thingie with magnetic tapes inside.  And the street food above are called Betamax because of the rectangular shape and black color.  Betamax is made up of coagulated chicken or pork blood grilled in coal.  And dipped in spicy vinegar.  And yes, they are yummy, and yet, not for all, hahaha.  Are you feeling a little adventurous today? Then try one of these from your favorite street vendor!

4. Nicholas Sparks' The Choice
5. Ramen at Ukokkei
6. Zumba!
7. A bag full of books. I love the smell of real books!
8. My gown for Sunday's wedding
9. Friends who come with you to choose gowns or lend you shoes!
10. Booking a hotel for our May Boracay trip.


Ukokkei Ramen Ron

My first authentic Ramen experience was in Ichiran in Japan and I know that nothing will top that. So when my officemates asked if I wanted to eat Ramen after a training and I told them about it, they were so pressured that I might not like it.  But, their fears were for naught.  The ramen was delicious! We almost didnt make it because they close at 230 to open again later for dinner.  We were at their doorstep at 2:28, but we missed the lunch platter.  We ended up ordering the Miso above, and while I didn't get the full Ramen experience, it was still above my expectations. I give Ukokkei Ramen Ron and 4/5 star.

 Thursday Happiness
I am living with gratitude this year, and will start to list down things I am gratefull for.  I used to do this last year with my Wednesday Happy Thoughts but I have decided to make my own banner this year. So, here goes:

I am grateful for:
1. Call from  a bank saying my car loan has been approved. But, there are still documents to be submitted and such, so I will hold off on the jumping up-down for the moment.
2. Resuming my lunch time exercises, and Zumba 2x a week.  Muscles still sore as I type this.
3. Our house is yellow. So bright and cool, hahaha.
4. The Red Queen book series. Finished reading two books, now can't wait for 2017!
5. Two birthday celebrations at the office, meaning free lunches! Yummy dishes! #goodbyediet
6. Didn't need to do the laundry mid-week, thanks to my hubby!
7. Almost done checking Budgets at work!
8. Planning a birthday climb! I need a mountain, soon!
9. New office uniforms! 
10. Christmas party at my sister's this weekend! Looking forward to this!

These are just some of the things I am grateful for this week.


Positivity

Jan 11, 2016

This year, I vow to remove negative people from my life.  I am done trying my best to understand people.  If I am not good enough for them, then I am fine with that.  If they can't mind their own business, then it's their problem, not mine.  I will do what will makes me and my family happy. And if they are not happy with it, then to hell with them.  I have spent far too much time and energy trying to please them and by golly, they are so not worth it!

So for this year, let positivity flow! I will welcome only good vibes from the universe!
