guilt and irony

while i was watching the footy finals at the Federation Square. secretly having fun under the rain...

i wasn't aware that this was happening in Manila...

that's not right. that is so not right.

my heart goes out to those who were severely affected by typhoon Ondoy.

indulgence : coles quadruple chocolate chunk cookies

it is the best thing that ever happened to cookies i must say!
the packet says:

"Luxuriously decadent chocolate cookie laden with milk, dark and white chocolate chunks. Finished with a base smothered in creamy milk chocolate. Incredibly divine, so 
indulge yourself"
so i did.
and for someone who doesn't like sweets much, i couldn't stop.
i'm seriously thinking of filling my luggage with just these! hahaha!

it doesn't matter how long we've lost touch or how far we've fallen out.

i will always be fond of you. like i said, i was never away. i never left and will never leave.

i'm glad to see that you're ok. steady ok.

and yes, i miss you too.

maybe not always. but whenever we talk of how things were, a part of me aches. the nice kind of ache. the kind that reminds me of how beautiful things can be that it becomes a promise of more beautiful things to come.

you bring me hope and i thank you for that.

move over martha

so i've been cooking and i'm loving it!

steak with rosemary and buttered veggies
buttered veggies
pork schnitzel
pork nilaga
beef stir fry with asparagus in red wine reduction sauce
fish escabeche
adobong pusit

sleepless in melbourne

it's 5am now and i have not slept a wink.

since i got here, my body clock refused to adapt. i am still in manila time.

i know it's just two hours. but if your sleeping habits are anything close to mine, 2 hours is a lot. i sleep late in manila which means i sleep even later now that i am here WHICH MEANS i have to wake up earlier!

sleeping gods...can you be a bit nicer to me? plesae pretty please?

haller from down under

i'm in melbourne. where its winter in spring and i don't have any winter clothes in my luggage. hahahhaa!

i'll be staying here for a month and if the rest of my stay here is anything close to how my first day went, i'm sure to have a blast.

in 2 weeks time, there'll be five other from manila who will come in but until then, it's just me and the fabulous aussies who seem to always have a smile on their face.

i love my job!
