Yes, we’re moving to a new home. But all the memories and the friends we made in our old home will all be cherished!
I’m excited at the same time tensed because moving to a new place entails adjusting to the surroundings and the people we are going to live with. I really hope that everything goes well.
Our new place is located near my office now. At least the stress of my travel time will be lessened from 1 hour 30 minutes to 20 minutes. It was really difficult for us to find the right place but thank God, we were able to get one.
I really believe the girl knew and heard rumors about the guy’s sexuality way before he started courting her. But if the girl was blinded by his cute smiles, his sweet lines and his handsome face, chances are she took the risk hoping that she can change him.
Around 10 years ago, I met a guy who I thought was a “real” guy. He acted sweet, he looked and smelled nice and I really thought that he was into to me. Then one incident happened, we played volleyball.
They say you will see the real character of a person when he or she is pressured. And I saw his real character while playing. Hints of him being gay or “bakla” came flooding to me already. But I stopped myself from thinking that. Sabi ko pa nga “Marami naman tunay na lalaki na magaling mag-volleyball ha”! I remember telling my HS friend about this and I even told her that maybe he needs me para maging tunay na lalaki sha.
He still continued being sweet and nice. We were holding hands na pero hindi kame. He will bring my stuff and he will bring me home and he even introduced me to his mom.
I started to fall for him even though I know at the back of my mind that there was something wrong because he never said he wanted me as a girlfriend. But even if I knew and there were obvious hints that he was bakla, I still liked him and if that moment he said he loved and he liked me, I will instantly say yes and be his girlfriend.
I really think that this was what the girl was thinking when she entertained the guy. She didn’t care about what others said and I think she also didn’t care of some stuff she saw. I bet you she even thought that she can change him. But it didn’t work out.
I feel sad for her. But at least she now know that people cannot change. It’s a lesson learned on her side. For the guy, shame on you for leading her on! If you are not gay why not tell everybody the reason why you 2 broke up. Why not tell people that they grew apart and the he doesn’t love her just like before. That’s so easy! But since he’s hiding his sexuality, it became hard.
We ate a lot of dishes when we were in Manila. As in a LOT! It was a nice feeling though because these food items are what we really wanted to eat.
Chowking's Black Gulaman, Pancake House's Junior MAster Chef Dish called Stuffed Ampalaya, Banana Caramel Pancakes and Pan Chicken
Joey Pepperoni's Carbonara and Salami Pizza, Abe's Binukadkad na Pla2 and Lechon Kawali
My Mom's Lovely Kare2x
Super Sweet Philippine Mangoes
There were a lot of other dishes that we ate but I failed to take a picture of like the Pancit Malabon, Sapin2x, Suman, Krispy Kreme, Chowking Mami, Silvanas.
The month of November is really a whirlwind of surprises for me and my family. My grandmother passed away last 9 November 2011.
She was in and out of the hospital since July and the months after was just too hard for her and the family.
Here are some of the photos during her wake and funeral:
Bye Biba! Thank you for all the memories! I know you are with Lolo now. Guide us always and watch over us. We love you!
Last Sunday, Doms and I tried Grandma’s Kitchen in NEX Mall. I initially wanted to eat in Din Tai Fung but the queue was so long so we decided to eat at Grandma’s.
Grandma’s specialties includes their sumptuous Nasi Lemak and their yummy Nasi Bukhari.
My Nasi Lemak and Doms' Nasi Bukhari
Doms ordered Nasi Bukhari because it’s almost like a complete meal. The rice set includes rice pilaf, deep fried chicken, beef rendang and asam prawns. He was so excited about his meal! That’s why when the lady told Doms that they ran out of beef rendang, he became sad. So they just substituted the beef rendang with more asam prawns which was good enough.
Anyway, our meals turned out to be great! My Nasi Lemak was too wonderful, I kept on saying “ang sarap” on every bite. My curry chicken was just right and not too spicy.
Grandma's Menu (Parts of it)
We ordered a dessert of coconut cream and sago but I really didn’t like it that’s why I didn’t take a picture of it.
All in all, I like the food and we will surely come back to this restaurant. I’m thinking of bringing my family here when they visit SG 2 weeks from now.
