And I’m done! I’m officially registered as a self-employed professional, which means I need to pay the monthly percentage tax starting this February, which is 3% of whatever I will have earned this January. I’m kind of annoyed knowing I already have 10% withholding tax every month, but hey, it’s for the country’s future, right? RIGHT???!!! Hahahaha =p I’m working on a full blog entry about my experience! Watch out for it! 😀

The Philippines may not have won in the Miss Universe pageant this year, but Aying’s homemade pastillas surely won me over! Each piece is thick, milky, and yummy!!! Thank you to my Mandi’s Grill Grub family for the pasalubong! :-*

I wish this photo could do more justice to Mandi’s Grill Grub‘s latest experiment, the “Saint and Sinner” sandwich, nay, sandwiches! I couldn’t figure out how to get a clear picture of both, but there are actually 2 sandwiches here. Below is the “saint”: 2 grilled chicken breast pieces with cheese. On top is the “sinner,” and rightfully so because it has 2 fried chicken thigh fillets, 2 pieces of thick-cut bacon, cheese, and egg-mayo. Goodness, the fried chicken tastes like KFC’s! Everything is sandwiched between slightly sweet bread, sweet because of either cranberries or raisins – I was busy eating to confirm hahaha! This sandwich monstrosity was served with some fries and mojos, with Mandi’s oh so yummy tartar sauce! Please have this na po on your menu!!!

Say hello to one of Mandi’s Grill Grub‘s latest offerings: deconstructed kare-kare! It has crispy pork pieces on a bed of eggplant, pechay, and sitaw, plus a generous amount of uber yummy bagoong rice! Ahhhhh! This also comes with 2 drinks, but Leo and I agree that an order can feed 3 people. Everything is just P480! Visit them along Lilac ASAP!!! 😀

When I created my WordPress blog in 2008, I simply wanted to comment on other blogs. Blogging is my first love, which later paved the way to vlogging. I’m glad to have shared my story and some tips to the senior high students of José Rizal University! Thank you!

If you have a Netflix account, I recommend that you stop whatever you’re watching and check out “Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories”! Maaaaan, it’s so good, I’m already halfway through season 1! Apparently, it is based on the manga series, “Shinya Shokudo.” Love, friendship, self-acceptance, culture, and of course, Japanese food are some of the themes, and so far, every episode made me cry hehehe! A lot of the stories are touching and even relatable. Currently, only season 1 is streamed on Netflix – there is a second one, plus a film adaptation. Go watch it!!! I highly recommend it! 🙂

Time to replenish the water, potassium, and electrolytes I lost from all the vomiting I did yesterday. I was still feverish until around noon earlier. The fever has disappeared, but I still feel really exhausted, especially since I’ve been teaching for 9 hours now, plus I have 4 more tonight! Whew! I even survived a demo lesson today. Thankfully, my schedule in the next few days won’t be as full, so I’m looking forward to getting a lot of rest.

I’ve been feeling unwell since before 1 pm. A lot of friends, including a doctor, said it’s a case of food poisoning. Thank you for all the advice, guys! I would also like to thank my very thoughtful Mandi’s Grill Grub family for making some nilagang ribs for me, huhuhu I feel so loved!!! And of course, thank you to my personal nurse, Leo, for getting all the stuff I need just so I could hopefully be well by tomorrow. I plan to teach while sitting; I feel so tired, but at least the fever has subsided, while the puking has stopped.
