Classic Polvoron

December 2016, I landed a one-time freelance job wherein I earned Php 10,500 ($207.70) in just four days. I am not joking (but I can’t tell any info about the job). Since I know that that kind of opportunity may not happen again, I decided to buy stuff that I can use to start a small business with small capital.

Here in the Philippines, in my opinion, polvoron and pastillas are the best sellers for all ages. Why?

First, they are affordable. Polvoron is usually priced as low as Php3 ($0.06) to Php15 ($0.30) depending on the variant, and for pastillas its Php1 ($0.02) to Php10 ($0.20) depending on how big it is.

Second, their ingredients are household staples. You can actually start your small business by using what you already have.

Third, Filipinos, regardless of their age, loves anything sweet. By anything, I mean A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G. We love sweets so much that sometimes we make a sweet version of foods that are NOT meant to be sweet.

I decided to make polvoron first. It’s my first time preparing this. The recipe that I used is from Pinoy Cooking Recipes. Continue reading

Planned or Not?

[This is not about pregnancy.]

I love reading confessions on university Facebook pages. Last time I posted a confession from FEU Secret Files, today I’m going to share a confession from The UST Files.

Here’s the link to the original post.
The sender’s confession is a letter for her father who already passed away. She told him that she was raped 6 times by different people, one of them is her own brother. She’s only 19 years old right now and almost no one knows what happened to her (her friends know it only happened once, she doesn’t want her family to know it either).

Tagulabay (Hives)

Wednesday night (July 19, 2017), we noticed some small red bumpy patches in my 14-month-old son’s face. At first I thought it’s just some insect bite so I ignored it. The following morning, more red rashes showed up on his back and stomach and before sunset, both his legs and arms are covered with those red rashed too. First thing that came to mind is allergy so I gave him an antihistamine. There are no changes on his rashes and later that night he started having fever. That’s when I started to worry. Combining rashes and fever immediately summons the idea that it could be dengue.

One Thing I Hate The Most About My Husband

I love my husband flaws and all, but like any other wife, there’s one thing that I really can’t get used too.

Being drunk.

He’s not an alcoholic, he just loves drinking. He drinks an average of around 3 times a week and Jagermeister is his favorite.

One thing that happens when he’s drunk? He gets really really irritating. He would talk about a lot of things, he would make fun of me (and he wouldn’t stop until I get really really angry), sometimes when he comes home late, he would wake me up so that we can talk (or to eat whatever he brought home for me).

Drafts and Games

p5

As of today, I still have 10 unfinished posts here in my Drafts and… yeah, I got so into MOBA recently (Mobile Legends and Heroes Evolved, anyone?) and Ragnarok PH was relaunched last June 29 ( I even joined the Close Beta Test phase!) that’s why I wasn’t able to finish these.

Is it bad for a mom to get hooked on these games? I finished college without even trying ANY online games. I tried League of Legends almost 4 years ago and I hated it. Seriously hate it (too many buttons!), especially when my team mates would start trash talking. Good thing there are android versions of these games now.

Here are some of my most recent awards/honor.

Strict VS Mabait

Ano nga ba ang mas OK? ‘Yung istriktong propesor o yung masyadong mabait?

Nakita ko ang post na ito habang nagmumuni-muni ako sa CR kanina. Wala lang, ramdam na ramdam ko yung sinasabi ni sender kasi pareho kami ng opinyon. Mas gusto ko yung mga propesor na istrikto kasi mas matututo ka talaga sa kanila.

Noong nasa kolehiyo ako, isa sa mga kinaiinisan ng mga kaklase ko ay iyong mga “minor (subjects) na feeling major”.
