04.2015: Food and “I do”
HELLO HELLO HELLO DOLLS!!! Aaaah I can’t believe it has been 2 months since I last posted something here! Probably the longest “blog vacation” since I started this blog — 5 years ago.
A lot has happened since my blog vacay. I am going to talk about each “new beginning” on a separate post, but since I feel like I owe it to this blog for being away for quite sometime, I am going to do a quick rundown of some of our beautiful moments.
1. We finally moved in to our home.
2. I can’t wait to see my family soon!!!
3. WE ARE EXPECTING! The world is going to gain another cutie this summer <3
So aside from those 3 things that I am focusing on right now, work and life has been pretty amazing too. I can’t believe that I have been “living the dream” for 8 months now! The journey of being a Chef is challenging,everyday has been an inspiring lesson for me — where I am right now is where I want to be.
My laptop has been pretty naughty for the past 2 months as well, adding up to the nausea that I have to deal with everyday during my first trimester ha. My laptop is going to be 8 years old this year… EIGHT. I have no plans of getting a new one any time soon (meaning in the next 5-10 years haha) and I know any technician would tell me to just replace it just because my mouse pad was acting funny so I had to do some research and fix it… and I did. haha
I have been missing home/Manila a lot lately. Maybe it’s the hormones, or maybe because we haven’t been home for almost a year now.
The closest that I could be to feeling like I am in the Philippines is to cook/eat Filipino food. That’s why I always encourage my Filipino friends here to get together haha
Anyway, going back to the Philippines with A means eating…a lot. We go out everyday to try a restaurant we haven’t been to, or go back to the ones we love. Planning a wedding is stressful (in case you haven’t heard about it haha) and it’s not just the couple who gets stressed out, the families too! So A and I would go on “quick lunch dates” to accomplish or do things for the wedding so we can talk about things as a couple.
