farewell, daddy fish!

Goodbyes aren't sad if you know that the person bidding goodbye will be going to somewhere he's gonna be happy and satisfied.

Our always dependable workmate, Rey AKA "daddy fish", had already set his last day in ASI. Following the trend (>.<), he decided to pass his resignation letter and soon, as early as May 11, he'll be having his grand exit and applause.

As much as the group would like him to stay, he's better off  somewhere far from where we are right now. haha. How can we stop him if we ourselves would also want to be where he's heading?

So, as a celebratory act of his efforts to follow his heart and dreams (^.^), we decided to have a little gathering and fill our tummies with FOOD!

Ladies and gents, welcome to the MA MASTERCHEF!

ana sila lami daw ang spag. kinsa kaha ang nagluto? *ehem*

FAMILY PICTURE minus NOONA (the picture-taker ):D
NOONA minus FAMILY PICTURE plus sundang. para di ka na magalit na wala ka sa family picture!

Dear daddy fish,

Alam ko na ngayon pa lang, namimiss mo na kami (ebidensya ang iyong luha habang ginagawa ang iyong masarap na tutty-fruitty cake) pero wala na kaming magagawa dahil ang kaligayahan mo ay kaligayahan naming lahat! Sana naman na kahit di ka na namin makita, maisipan mo pa rin kaming kamustahin, o imbitahin man lang kumain kapag nakatanggap ka na ng iyong unang sweldo.

Hindi namin malilimutan ang iyong kontribusyon sa aming pagiging empleyado sa ASI. Ikaw ang nagsilbing ilaw sa aming madidilim na daan (na hanggang sa ngayon ay madilim pa rin! T_T) at nagsilbing nakakatandang kuya(by age and by role) sa aming lahat. Ikaw ay handang tumulong sa amin kapag kami ay nangangailangan, handang magOT para kami ay samahan tuwing kami ay nasasadlak sa lugmok at pighati. Di namin makakalimutan ang iyong pagiging mabuting kaibigan sa aming lahat!

Sana ay maging masaya ka sa kung saan ka man paroroon. We all wish you the best!

Mag-ingat ka sa daan!

others (hahahahah, bitaw, you already know who we are, no need to enumerate! CHARENG!)

happy birthday papa!

One of the simplest and cheapest ways I had thought of to express my greatest love for my one and only papa. It's his birthday today and life's too short not to celebrate this annual occasion. He may be too old for cakes but he ain't too old to accept love from his children.

I love you papa! a BIG thank you for everything! :D



I am becoming one and I hate it!

I am just amazed how I could empty my account just few days after pay day T_T

I carefully plan where my money will be spent but I just act and buy impulsively during every purchase. I sometimes buy more than what I could consume, I even buy things even if I don't need them at the moment. I need to stop this and control myself asap before I'm left with nothing but an empty account T_T


April: Shabu2x @ Red House

Just before the Holy Week vacation and before our friend G gets broke since she's going back to Davao, we decided to have our foodtrip, April edition.

This time, we were at Red House Taiwan Sha-bu Sha-bu

The restaurant is like any other Asian resto, wooden furniture and ornaments, with brown, dark white and yellow as dominant colors. Even if the whole restaurant space is not quite that big, the tables are generously spaced so each group of customers could have a little sense of privacy.

I have many things to say about this one.

First, the staff are really not that attentive. While we were outside waiting for our turn to dine in, nobody had took consideration of clearing the empty tables for their next customers. We have to go again inside to tell their staff to please clean a table for us 4. T__T

Second, they're not so polite and obviously, customer service wasn't anything they're well taught of. There was no greeting whatsoever when we entered, they were like so anti-social that our only reason for interaction was when we had our orders. I'm not expecting them to chitchat with us for hours but what I was expecting is for them to make us feel that we could inquire and ask them about anything that concerns their restaurant. They could have also given us a smile when serving the dishes since we waited long enough outside just to get in. hmph.

Lastly, It took them 20 minutes to give us our bill. I think the reason though is that we asked for the bill a little earlier and they're still supposed to give us desserts. I would've appreciated it if they just approached us and told us to wait for a couple more minutes for our desserts to be served before getting our bill. geez!

Even if we had bad experience in their customer service, we had the opposite when it came to their FFOODDD!

It was my first time to try shabu2x. Even if it felt awkward to not have a plain rice in this meal (we did not order coz we thought we ordered much already and we might not finish everything off), I was way more than satisfied indulging myself in new gastronomic dishes in our table!

how it looks inside the pot! :D

the coffee jelly that took them 20minutes to serve! but it's free thou! :D

I was taken aback about how I greatly enjoyed shabu-shabu. It wasn't enticing on pictures and when I passed infront any shabu-shabu restaurant. hahahaha! I would definitely try it again with new dumplings and dishes dropped in the pot! :D


this might be one of my fave reality music shows

Lil sistah's graduation

After years in the elementary department, the youngest in the family finally grabbed her diploma on stage yesterday.

and as if we don't fight over my rings and hair conditioners! Sisterly love <3
lunch celebration @ Cabalen
5-yr old cousin's awards! Proud! 
our 3 dalagindings
my brother's newly bought guitar! Nagbibinata na rin!

This is the first occasion that mama's not with us. If she was here, she would be so proud and she would be hands-on in doing my lil sister's hair and make-up. She would also pick a better dress for my sister to wear. hahahahah! It may feel awkward and incomplete for my mama to not be here but there's nothing else that we could do but to be familiar with the feeling of just the 4 of us together now.

Congratulations lil sis, welcome to highschool!
