Stupid Ghee...

I promised myself never to fall in love again easily. I told myself next time, I will make sure that I'll do it right so it can last. As far as I know I'm doing great with what I've promised myself until I met them.

I met the first man because of a common friend. We've become close friends as we communicate online and share just about anything about our daily life. After few months of chatting and meeting via webcam, I found myself liking him more than a friend. I wasn't expecting it because he has a GF and I'm someone who don't find men in a relationship attractive because they're already committed. I never liked someone who has a GF until I met him. He also told me he likes me, but I don't know how to react when he said that because I think it's not serious because he has a girlfriend, right? In order to forget my feelings, I stopped communicating with him for a month. After a month, I was okay. I keep on reminding myself about his girlfriend so I won't like him anymore. Though he once said that he don't want to marry his girlfriend, I won't be surprised if one day he will invite me to their wedding. They've been together for such a long time, and I think they will be a great couple if they're gonna marry each other. I can't tell if my feelings is gone in just a month, but good thing that now I don't always communicate with him because he quit working and started doing his own business.

Then I met the second one. My first impression to this guy is bad. I thuoght he is a playboy but later I realized that MAYBE he's not. He used to chat a lot with me. Sometimes I find it annoying because he keeps on chatting though my MSN status is BUSY! After few months he started to be busy with his work so we seldom talk on MSN. I find myself laughing like crazy in front of the computer while chatting with him because we always tease each other. I call him michin oppa (michin is a Korean word for crazy. oppa is the word used by a younger woman to an older man.) and he always tease me because I'm chubby, clumsy, forgetful, stupid, and childish. He used to call me ""my bride". He said if no one will marry me, he will do it for me. Funny because though I know he's just kidding I'm thinking if it is possible that we will end up marrying each other someday. Then I found myself imagining him as my boyfriend then my husband. Crazy right? Haha...

I also introduced him to my cousin. They both liked each other but decided to be just friends in the end. I realized that I like him when I started being jealous with my cousin. Though they're just friends I feel that there's something else. I know I don't have the right to be jealous, but I am. My cousin has a Korean boyfriend. Her BF will go back next year in our country so they can talk about marriage. It's up to them if they're gonna marry each other. Then last Saturday while using my cousin's Skype account, I checked on her conversation history with michin oppa. I was shocked when I started reading some of the messages. I don't remember everything but I remember how I felt that time. I was sad...hurt...disappointed. I wanted to cry. Then I realized that he really doesn't like me. In his eyes I'm just his sister...his baby sister.

I told him yesterday that I will stop communicating with him and I don't know when will I talk to him again. I didn't told him the reason. I don't want to tell him that I really like him because I'm not sure with what I feel. I have to meet him, date him, be with him, so I may know if my feelings are for real. So now, I have to forget this feelings again just like what I did with the first man I liked. I'm afraid because I feel that I like michin oppa in a way that if I won't stop this I might find myself falling for him.

I'm not sure if what I feel is real. I can only confirm this if I can meet and spend time together with the person.


I'm sad because though I refused all the date invites from my admirers, I unknowingly hurt myself. I don't blame anyone but myself. I'm responsible with what I feel right now. I'm so stupid to feel this. I feel stupid liking someone that can't even like me. I feel stupid that I created my fantasies and end up waking up and realizing that I'm just dreaming. I feel disappointed because I expected too much. I'm hurting because I'm so clumsy and stupid. Stupid Ghee. Naneun baboya. Chongmal baboya. >_<

I might start dating soon so I can forget it easily. Let's just see what will happen in the future.

Confused Girl's Story

A couple years ago, while chatting online, I came across many different and very interesting people.

I never thought of I-Ming (instant messaging) anybody. I was in a chat room one night, and this guy was chatting. He seemed like somebody so compatible with me.


So, I decided to give this instant messenger a try. Not knowing i was going to fall head of heels in love with this man, I I-Med him and simply said hello. That's when it all started. We began to chat more frequently, than it turned into every night, and after that, every spare minute we had in a day. The only reason I would really go online was to chat with him. I barely knew him but my love grew more and more day by day. 

When I would tell people about it, they would think I was crazy to have fallen for this complete stranger. Yet, they didn't understand how deeply I felt for him. When I would see his screen name sign on, i would get tingles all over, and butterflies in my tummy. Two or three years passed and this stranger was still in my heart. One night, I decided to call him. Since he lived far away, we couldn't talk on the phone much because my parents and his would see this unfamiliar number on the phone bill. The first time I heard his voice on the phone, I got this feeling that i can't even describe. For the first time in my life, I had been completely speechless. Words no longer existed. After that, we chatted more. I didn't think he felt for me, as i had for him. To my surprise, one night he told me how much I meant to him, and that he had to be with me. He told me that no one had ever made him smile on the worst days. No one could calm him down when he was angry, as I had. He told me that he thought of me every single moment. And I was more in love with him than I knew. 


After chatting for 5 years or so, he told me he was in love with me, but I didn't believe it. I didn't believe how 2 complete strangers could fall in love. Conversations would come up about seeing each other and we would plan everything, or I would at least. And when that day would come for us to meet, something would come up. This went on a couple more times. One day he disappeared and for a couple months I didn't talk to him. But not a day went by that I wouldn't think of him. I saw him online one night, and I thought this was my only chance to tell him how I had felt. I told him I was in love with him. And he was shocked. He said, he felt the same, but I didn't think so. I have stopped trying to work it out with him. I have given up. I guess you can say I moved on, new loves have came and left. But none have left such an impact on my life as he has. And still to this day, I think of him every day.


Sometimes, I cry. I wish someday I could finally meet this stranger that I have loved for so long. I asked him one day why he wouldn't meet me, and he told me, I know if I meet you, I'm going to get attached to you, and there's no way we can be together because we live so far from one another. But I know deep in my heart that I'll see him one day, and when I do, I'll never let him go because I love him.

Pasta Food Business

I'm thinking of a possible business that I can do. At first, I wanted to try selling clothes, bags, accessories, wallets, shoes ONLINE but I realized that there are a lot of entrepreneurs who are into this kind of business. Online business is the most popular one here in the Philippines. Young entrepreneurs displays their products by coming up with a cool website for their shop. So, maybe I can't be successful because I have a lot of competitors.


Then what about food business?! Yeah, I'm sure this is even more popular than the online business. Food carts are everywhere. You can see them at the mall, street sides, school, etc. There are also a lot of canteens, restaurants, and fast food chains near the marketplace. The cost of franchising is so expensive that I don't even want to try!


Now I'm thinking of coming up with my own food cart business. Actually, while chatting with my cousin I invited her to have our own business, then she suggested food business but we're not going to franchise. We're planning to have our own franchise. She said we must have our own original concept, then I suggested having a Pasta food cart. She agreed and added that we can also match the pasta with drinks such as fruit shakes, juices, etc.


While browsing about our drafted plan, I saw this post from http://www.yummy.ph/features/people/details/on-the-go-pasta

On-the-go pasta

Sharlene Tan, owner and manager of Goodles, shares how she and her partners conceptualized their pasta bar.
By: Becky Kho 



310_goodles5.jpg  310_goodles4.jpg
Why did you choose to open a pasta bar?My partners and I decided on creating a pasta bar because of several reasons. Everyone loves noodles. Pasta is healthy (It’s a complex carbohydrate that’s good for the body) and also very filling. There are so many things you can do with pasta. And it’s an entirely new concept!


How did you conceptualize the menu?To make our brand stand out, I made sure that Goodles wouldn’t be serving the same kind of pasta that people can already get anywhere like carbonara, bolognese, arrabiata, fettucine alfredo. To give customers the best experience, we also use the freshest and best ingredients and everything is made from scratch in our kitchen—our tomato sauces, cream sauces, even our iced tea! We really want our taste to be distinct, to make sure they can only get it when they come to our store. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, experimenting on different flavors, tweaking our recipes. I am so thankful for my hardworking kitchen team and friends who were willing to do food tasting over and over again.

310_goodles3.jpg 


Is it fun to work inside a mall? Businesswise, what are the benefits?There are advantages and disadvantages to working inside a shopping mall. It’s fun because you can do other things while you watch over your business like run errands, shop for emergency birthday gifts, or watch a movie. You also have guaranteed customers because of the foot traffic the mall generates. However, being inside a mall also means being subjected to rules and regulations like staying open until midnight during mall sales or over the holidays, which is very taxing. You also can’t decide on your own and do what you want because there are rules, permits, and processes to everything.

Would you recommend a mall spot?I think the decision of opening inside a mall or not would depend first on your concept. Some concepts work better inside a mall, while some can also work if you put it some place else as a stand-alone store. One thing about setting up your store in a mall is that you’re limited to the mall’s operating schedule. So if you’re serving breakfast food for example, then you’re better off someplace else. You also have to check the demographics of the mallgoers. Each mall has a different target market so make sure it matches yours!

What do you think are three most crucial qualities of being a food entrepreneur?

1. Patience. Starting a business really involves a lot of hard work, especially in my case, where Goodles is both a new brand and concept. You have to be patient with how the business evolves and not expect that things will run smooth after a few days. Going into business involves dealing with a lot of people—suppliers, staff, customers, and you need to be patient with all their requests and concerns.

2. Passion. Before starting anything, I believe one must set goals and have the passion and determination to pursue it. The business environment is a very tough one and the food industry in particular is very competitive. I believe those who succeed are the ones who have great faith in themselves and are so passionate about their concept and brand that they are determined to do everything to make it work.

3. Creativity. The food industry is already very crowded. Almost everything you can think of is already in the market. We know pasta is served almost everywhere so to sell a similar product, our company had to think of a creative way to introduce our brand into the market. We did so by introducing new and creative dishes and through our unique packaging.


Who is your idol when it comes to cooking pasta dishes?Mario Batali and Ursula Ferrigno. I admire Batali for what he has achieved. His story is so inspiring, especially for a food entrepreneur like me. Ferrigno comes out with the best books, especially on Italian cuisine. She uses a lot of fresh ingredients and makes extraordinary dishes out of the simplest ingredients. Her pasta recipes push me to be more creative!

What’s your number one rule for cooking good, solid pasta?Use a really good brand of pasta and have more than enough boiling water for cooking the pasta. A lot of people wonder why their pasta sticks together while cooking or why they either get undercooked or overcooked pasta. It’s because there are many things you should take note of while cooking pasta to make sure it comes out perfectly. It sounds difficult because it’s actually a very technical process but once you get the hang of it, it’s going to be so easy, I promise! The first week of training for my crew involved a lot of pasta cooking to make sure that they always serve al dente pasta in the store. I am proud to say that from that time on, they have already mastered it and so can you.

310_goodles1.jpg

Tell us about a recipe you are working on now for Goodles.Right now, we’re working on some new combinations to add to our lineup. Just to give you an idea: an adobo pasta, a sisig pasta, and something with longganisa!

Reviewing my life in year 2010

Good Morning! It's Monday once again. OMG as I look at the calendar I realized that it is almost the last week for the month of November. Few days left and it's gonna be December, the holiday season! I can't believe how time goes by so fast. Year 2010 is about to end.

Well, I want to share what happened in my life this year. Having a poor memory I might forget them so it's better if as soon as possible I will recall the things that I've experienced within this year. Let's start reviewing my life in year 2010!

JANUARY
This is the month where my family and I got our first challenge in life. My father had a motor accident and had an operation because of his broken bone in his foot. He stayed in the hospital with Mom and my sister, and I was left at home because I'm working. I was like a Mom to my brother who is studying. My sister doesn't have work that time so she was the one who was with Mom in the hospital. Though I'm working I'm still worried about my Dad so I filed vacation leave so I can help in the hospital. Good thing my company is a big help when it comes to the health insurance of my parents. I also help Mom in settling matters with the people whose responsible for the accident. When Dad came back home, I felt pressured because he needs to stop working for a month or two, my sister is not yet working, my brother is studying, and my salary is not that high and I was the only one working. I wasn't able to save much because I need to share it with my family, and I don't regret doing it. I feel blessed when after a month, Dad came back to work. He stopped smoking because he's also diagnosed with a heart problem. We are still trying to discipline him when it comes to his eating habits so he will stay healthy. This month reminds me on how to have a strong faith in God and how to be a responsible family member.

FEBRUARY
On the 8th day of this month, I celebrated my 2nd year of being SINGLE! I spent the Valentine's day like it's a normal day. Nothing special. I just worked and went home afterwards.

MARCH
March 8 is when I met a new Korean friend. My first impression to him is a crazy, playboy, childish one, but I realized now that I might be wrong. Ha! He's a very good friend of mine. He's like a real brother to me, though I once told him I like him but I was kinda dumped, haha.. I also introduced him to my cousin and they both liked each other. They end up being friends.

APRIL
This is when I attended our very first High School Reunion! I had so much fun because it's been a long time since I spend time with my high school friends. Most of them already have their own family. Hmm, what else? Ah, I also got TESOL certified in this month. Aside from IT, I also want to try teaching so I took an online TESOL certification.

MAY
Okay, c'mon poor memory, work with me now. Why can't I remember what happened during this month? Hmmm..Ah, I started sending my resume to different companies in Asia. I wanted to be an English teacher. I wanted to teach in South Korea, China, or Singapore. I also think about of resigning but I'm not sure when. I started being confused if I should resign or not. Then I got a call from a school in South Korea but they want to hire me as soon as possible so I can teach also immediately, but since I still have contract in my company that time, I wasn't able to accept it.

JUNE
This is the month when I really wanted to resign but I can't since I still have contract to finish. I'm still applying to different companies in different countries in this month. I started doing some research on how can I possibly work in South Korea and realized that it wasn't easy to be an English teacher. I started to feel lazy working because I really want to get out, resign, and do something new like teaching.

JULY
This is the month when I finally decided to hand over my resignation letter to my boss. Though he really tried his best to stop me and convince me to stay, I told him that my decision is final, and knowing my boss, he understood it and let me go. I started doing all my pending tasks at work, they started looking for my replacement as well. Ah, prior to my resignation, I was interviewed by a company and was given a job offer. As soon as I got the job offer email, I sent my resignation letter to my boss.

AUGUST
This is when I started teaching the new staff which is my replacement. Handing over to him all my tasks and responsibilities as a Software Test Engineer. I also received sweet messages from my coworkers telling me they're gonna miss me, and they're happy for me. This is also the month when I realized I have some admirers on that company including someone who is so close to me that I didn't realized he's been secretly loving me for 2 years! Sadly, I rejected all of their date invites. The reason is not just because I don't like any one of them, but also because I want to remain good friends with them, that's all. Just friends. I had a very good and memorable farewell party with my coworkers on August 20. I also started working on my new company during this month.

SEPTEMBER
I studied and met new friends on my current company. Though sometimes I still miss what I used to do, how I used to do it, with whom I do it, where I usually go every morning, I was able to adjust with the new things in my life. Sometimes I feel like a baby because I'm not so familiar with the projects in my new company, but I'm happy that my friends/coworkers are so nice that they help me. I also attended a birthday party celebration with my college friends this month. It's also like a mini reunion party after 2 years of not being together. I missed them so much. What else did I do during this month? Ah, of couse, we celebrated my mom's  and my twin sister's (my best friend) birthday on 20th and 27th of September!

OCTOBER
I started joining different contests online where prize is FREE roundtrip ticket to South Korea, Europe, etc. I wanted to travel around the world so I joined some promos. At first, I'm not really serious, I joined just for fun, but when I started seeing my name on top of the winner candidates, I wanted to win so badly! But then, at the end of the contest, I end up being a loser! Ha! It's okay, it's part of the game, but I envy the winners! Ha!

NOVEMBER
This is when we celebrated Halloween with my family and relatives. I also tried a different hairsyle - CURLY, and I'm so happy when people are telling me that I look good on it. What else, hmm, my best friend is on 3 months leave because she is sick so she needs to rest. I will miss her! I also envy her haha. I also found myself wanting to buy a lot of things this month, problem is I don't have enough money to buy them all. One of which is to have a very cute Maltese puppy! Haha.. but it wasn't easy so I have to be ready before buying one. ^^

DECEMBER
Coming Soon! ^^

That's it! During the last 11 months of the year 2010 a lot of things happened in my life. What's good thing about it is that I don't have anything to regret doing. Everything that I did and experienced is fine with me. Though there are some goals that I didn't achieved, it doesn't mean that I should give up. I'm proud and happy with what I've been through this year. I wonder what's gonna happen next month! My favorite month, my birthday month! OMG, I'm turning 23! I'm so excited and happy! Oh, this entry is so long, haha.. Anyway, to end this, I just want to share how I feel about LIFE this year, it can be explained by this emoticon --> ^_________________^ 

Got it? ^^

Having a Maltese puppy

Good Morning! 


Lately I've been wanting to have a very cute Maltese puppy. I usually surf the Internet to check on their pictures and more information about this dog's breed. I even checked on the price since I'm planning to buy one next year. Then I realized it wasn't easy to have one. First reason is because it's so expensive. Second, there will be a lot of effort and money involved in having a Maltese dog. The food, grooming, health, vaccines, and other things that you need to do with your pet. 


I even found some sites where they offer adoption, but sadly the location is in other country and the pet can't be shipped. Another thing with adoption is that there is a possibility that the pet abadoned may have a disease, bad behavior, or too old. I pity those who have been abandoned by their owners, but I don't want to adopt one.


I want to have a baby Maltese puppy someday so I can start loving and being with her while it's still a baby. 


When I saw this picture of a Maltese puppy, I want to get one which is exactly the same as this one! Haha... I might get myself one next year. I have to save money and continue searching on how to properly care this kind of puppy. They look so adorable. ^_^

Only with You MV



ONLY WITH YOU
by Toni Gonzaga


I'm lost inside my mind
I'm lost inside my feelings
Thinking about you
Missing your touch and your kiss
I can't believe you got be fallin' like this
And I don't wanna end a feeling like this

CHORUS:
You know I want to share my world with you
I wanna be with you this feelings will never change
You know I want to forever live in this moment
I wanna spend the rest of my life
Only with you

Dreaming of a life, a lifetime lived with you
I couldn't imagine if it wouldn't be with you
I wanna take you to forever with me
You're just the best thing that happened to me

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

Only with you
I wanna spend the rest of my life
Only with you

Can't Help Myself MV



CAN'T HELP MYSELF
by Toni Gonzaga



Can't sleep tonight,
'Cause you're on my mind.
I guess I'm in love once again.
they say a star,
'Cause that's what you are.
You light up my life once again.

I'll take this chance for another romance in my

Life,
'Cause you're all that I need.

I can't help myself,
From falling in love,
With somebody like you,
'Cause your feelings are true.
Can't help myself,
From falling in love.
For I can't help myself...
From falling for you.

All day I pray,
That forever you'll stay,
And won't let our love fade away.
Hear what I say,
Whatever come away?
We'll be together come what may.

I'll take this chance for another romance in my

Life,
'Cause you're all that I need.

I can't help myself,
From falling in love,
With somebody like you,
'Cause your feelings are true.
Can't help myself,
From falling in love.
For I can't help myself...
From falling for you.

I've never felt this love,
Until you came,
In my mind.

And I can't help myself,
From falling in love,
With somebody like you,
'Cause your feelings are true.
Can't help myself,
From falling in love.
For I can't help myself...
From falling for you.

You're My Right Kind Of Wrong



YOU'RE MY RIGHT KIND OF WRONG
by Toni Gonzaga


I didn’t see, I didn’t feel
It was coming, it was real
We just talk, it’s ok
Later on it’s not the same

And I don’t know now what’s right or wrong
When I hear a tune it becomes our song
And it may sound weird but it’s just true
I think there’s something here for you

[Chorus]
When we drove late at night and I looked in your eyes
Even from the car park I felt the spark
Though we try to deny these feelings inside
Each time we would look eyes I couldn’t help but smile
You’re my right kind of wrong
And so this is your song

The phone rings, then you sing
It was awful but it’s sweet
The clock strikes 1-4-3
You would tell me you love me

And those little things you thought won’t count
And sometimes you think I still have doubts
When we want to be together now
You say soon we will make it somehow

[Repeat Chorus]

Maybe I’ll wake up in these fantasies over
But please don’t take away all my dreams
All I know now is when the madness is over
I wouldn’t smile the same anymore

I want a Maltese Puppy!

I suddenly remember the dog in the salon where I went yesterday. The dog is soooo cute and funny! Haha.. Then I also have a Korean girl friend who have a very cute Maltese puppy! I've researched about it and I found these cute pictures! I will save some money so I can buy myself next year. I'm afraid of dogs but I want to have a Maltese puppy. I also like them to stay small and cute... I want a puppy that will always be a puppy forever. I don't like big dogs! Looks scary haha.. Here are the pictures:










For more information about Maltese Dogs, read below.


According to Wikipedia, the Maltese is a small breed of dog in the toy group, known for its silky white hair, though many owners of pet Maltese give them a short "puppy cut" for ease of grooming. The Maltese breed is descended from dogs originating in the Central Mediterranean Area. The breed name and origins are generally understood to derive from the Mediterranean island of Malta; however, the name is sometimes described with reference to the Adriatic island of Mljet, or a defunct Sicilian town called Melita.


Characteristics include slightly rounded skulls, with a finger-wide dome and black nose that is two finger-widths long. The body is compact with the length equaling the height. The drop ears with long hair and very dark eyes, surrounded by darker skin pigmentation (called a "halo"), gives Maltese their expressive look. Their noses can fade and become pink or light brown in color without exposure to sunlight. This is often referred to as a "winter nose" and many times will become black again with increased exposure to the sun.


Maltese are bred to be cuddly companion dogs, and thrive on love and attention. They are extremely lively and playful, and even as a Maltese ages, his or her energy level and playful demeanor remain fairly constant. Some Maltese may occasionally be snappish with smaller children and should be supervised when playing, although socializing them at a young age will reduce this habit. The Maltese is very active within a house, and, preferring enclosed spaces, does very well with small yards. For this reason, the breed also fares well in apartments and townhouses, and is a prized pet of urban dwellers. Maltese also suffer from separation anxiety, so potential owners should be cognizant of this behavior.

Curly Me!

What a day! Just like what I mentioned on my previous post I went and spent half of my day with my Mom and sister in the Salon. I feel tired but happy!

I've been wanting to try to have a curly hair since last year but I was hesitant to do it because my Mom always say that I might look ugly with it. I keep on searching Korean curly hair style and saving them on my phone. I've been thinking and planning for it, and now it happened! I now have a curly hair! Most of the people who saw me said that I look good on  it and I'm so happy to hear it from them. ^^

When we got home I started taking pictures of my curly hair. I will upload the photos on my Facebook account. Here are some of them.


Well, that's it. This is my new look. Next target is to buy a new eyeglass since I've been using my current one for more than a year now. I'm just waiting for my pay day so I can have money to spend, hahaha...Now I know that having a curly hair style will also make me look pretty! haha.. ^^

My Sunday today...

Good Morning!

I woke up so early today because I thought we're going to exercise again. As I tried to wake up my sister she said she's lazy and just want to sleep, and since I also feel bad because of my wounds I decided not to go today. My legs kinda hurt because of what we did yesterday. I'm not used to running/jogging a lot that's why they feel tired until now. But I still stayed awake and just did some of my personal exercise in our room. I spent 30 minutes and then I turned on my computer to check my emails, facebook, and twitter. OMG! I also checked on the winner candidates on the contest I joined and realized that I won't be able to win it. I just hope that winners will be those who really deserves it.

I'm starving...I want to eat breakfast now. Together with my Mom and sister, we will go to hair salon later at 7:30 in the morning to have our hair fixed. My sister will avail Rebonding treatment while I will try to get my hair permed. I've been wanting to try to have curly hair but I'm always wondering if it will look good on me, but I realized I won't know the answer if I won't give it a try, right?

Oh, and by the way, my wounds still hurt, I think I will walk slowly later on our way to the salon. I still need band-aids! OMG! I hope these will heal as soon as possible!

Well, what else?  I think that's all that I can share for today. Tomorrow is the start of another working week! Our boss will go back from USA so I think we will be having a lot of work to do. I'm gonna update User Manual documents, do the regression testing, and of course, browsing and chatting when I have no tasks. ^^

But for now, I'm just gonna enjoy my Sunday with my family. (I think I'm going to spend half of my day in the salon with my Mom and my sister. ^^)

First Day Jogging

This entry is related to the previous one that I've posted about Healthy Living.

We've decided to wake up 5 in the morning today but because I'm such a sleepyhead, I wasn't able to wake up early though my phone did alarmed at exactly 5am. I woke up at 6am and told my sister it's time for our first day with our plan. We washed our face, gargled, fixed my hair in a ponytail, brought my mobile phone to listen to songs, wore a blouse, jogging pants, and rubber shoes. My sister and I keeps on laughing while we're walking because we actually planned to go out by 5am so that people won't notice us (we're kinda shy). Then when we arrived in the park where most people exercise, we started walking while chatting. After awhile we started jogging. I can feel how weak I am because I feel tired easily. When we're tired we walk, after that we continue jogging. We spent 1 hour walking and jogging around the park. There are also people who are by the way older than us, I think they're age is on 30's or 40's...we even saw some really old people jogging as well.

We arrived at 7am in our house. After removing my rubber shoes, I saw my wound on my ankle (left foot) because I forgot to wear socks! While cutting my nails this morning, I accidentally cut on my index finger on my left foot, which leads me to my 2nd wound! Soooo clumsy and unfortunate that I can't even walk properly now! Good thing we had some band-aids. I will still go to exercise tomorrow morning despite my left foot's condition.

We planned to do this kind of routine everyday so we can stay fit and healthy. I realized how much weight I've gained in such a short period of time so I really need to start living a healthy life. I also gave my Mom the list of vegetable recipes that she must cook for our lunch. I'm gonna do this as much as I can. I can't just ignore my health. I may be clumsy but I want to be healthy.

I will keep my blog updated about this matter. Good thing I have this kind of website where I can share stories about my life. I don't have someone with whom I can share it with. Well, I have friends, but sometimes I don't want to tell them all about the things that has something to do with me. I really love my online diary.

That's it. I need to eat now because it's dinner time! Oh, I really hope that my wounds will get better soon so I can walk properly! Chow time! ^_~

Btw, I have pictures of my wounds on my left foot but I decided not to share on this entry because they're kinda ugly!!! Just imagine me having band-aid on my index toe finger and another band-aid on my ankle. >_<

Healthy Living! Fighting!

After meeting with my friends with whom I used to work with on my previous company, I realized that I gained weight again! Well, yes, that's because most of them told me I got so fat again but it looked good on me because I'm blooming and gorgeous, and I was like "after teasing me I'm fat now you're telling me I'm pretty because of it?". I'm not mad but I started to be conscious because of it. I'm someone who tends to gained weight so fast without even eating a lot. I don't eat a lot but what cause it is because of lack of exercise, slow metabolism, plus it's in the genes!


My sister who used to be chubby also noticed she's starting to gain some weight too like me. So, the next plan we did? We decided to have a regular jogging exercise every Saturday and Sunday morning. For more details of our healthy living plan, check list below.
1. Weekend Exercise
We have to wake up early in the morning and start jogging around the park. We have to burn some fat! We have to do this every Saturday and Sunday morning. Actually I suggested that we should do this every day but I don't think we can do it. Doing it every weekend is okay.


2. Healthy Eating
We talked to our mom about the food she cooks for us. I told her to cook lunch meal with vegetables, fish, seafood, less pork, less chicken. My mom is with us with this plan since she noticed how chubby we are right now! Haha..Then I also told her that I will just eat sandwich for dinner every work days, M-F.


3. Self Discipline
I myself decided to start spending 30 minutes of my time doing some exercise every morning. I will start on this next week! I hope I can do it every day! I will also practice eating just enough and not too much. I'm having problems with this because my mom is a very good cook! I wish I'm like her when it comes to cooking!


That's it! Simple plan for a healthy living. I don't call it "DIET" because if it is like that, it's just temporary, right? I would rather call it "HEALTHY LIVING...HEALTHY EATING...HAVING A SELF DISCIPLINE". Our purpose is not just to loose weight or to look gorgeous, it's also our way of taking care of our health for a long life! 


This time I'm really serious with it! Aja! Fighting! 


BTW, my sister told me to bring my phone while jogging so we can take pictures because she will also blog about it. LOL! ^_~

Happy Pepero Day!

One of my Korean friends, Jieun, whom I met because of Anna, told me that it is Pepero Day today in Korea. I searched for it and found that it is similar to Valentine's Day. She said she is eating a lot of Pepero while chatting with me. Haha...




I want to eat some Pepero too...they look so delicious...similar to pretzel sticks. Here are some of the information I found while browsing about it.


Pepero (빼빼로) is a cookie stick, dipped in chocolate syrup, manufactured by Lotte in South Korea since 1983.

Pepero Day is an observance in South Korea similar to Valentine's Day. It is named after the Korean snack Pepero and held on November 11, since the date "11/11" resembles four sticks of Pepero.The holiday is observed mostly by young people and couples, who exchange Pepero sticks, other candies, and romantic gifts. Lotte denies starting the holiday and instead states that they noticed a bump in Pepero sales around November 11th and after continued popularity they decided to then encourage the holiday with special gift boxes and other promotions.Some consider it to be a contrived holiday and some teachers have encouraged children to exchange healthy snacks to help combat obesity.

According to one story, Pepero Day was started in 1994 by students at a girls' middle school in Busan, where they exchanged Pepero sticks as gifts to wish one another to grow "as tall and slender as a Pepero".

Lee Da Hae insulted Filipinos

Korean actress Lee Da Hae apologizes for insulting Filipinos


The insult happened on the Korean variety show “Sweet Night”. In the episode, Lee Da Hae , who learned English while living in Australia, was imitating how Americans, British and Filipinos talk.


She demonstrated how the three groups say “Excuse me; I'm a little bit thirsty. Can I have a glass of water please?"


When she says the sentence in a Filipino-English accent it sounded like this phonetically: "I'm little bit thar-stee so can I have a glass of wa-tar, please. Wa-tar.”


This clearly insulted the Filipino community.


After hearing of the anger of those who viewed the video, she put out the following tweet on TwitLonger:


On Wednesday 3rd November 2010, @cherry4eva84 said:


First I'd like to give you my sincere apologies for what seems to be a misunderstanding.


It has come to my attention that many of you from the Philippines have posted comments protesting that i was being derisive by mimicking Filipinos when they speak English.


Therefore, in light of this matter I'd like to take this opportunity to clear the air.
In spite of what many people believe, I myself did NOT mention anything
about the Philippines or Filipino accent whilst on the TV show.


On the other hand I recall bringing up Southeast Asia and not the Philippines and the subtitles were inserted when the show was being edited of which I was not aware of until it was aired.


The TV show where this footage was taken from was designed to amuse its audience and my sole purpose was to entertain the viewers by coming up with lighthearted stories.


Since the producer knows that i speak English he asked me if I could
share any episodes that touch upon the English language.


As we all know every country has a typical accent when its people speak English (including myself) so after giving it some thought, I came up with a few lines where I simply tried to compare different English accents: the somewhat rigid British accent and beginners in Southeast Asia whose English tends to be a little hard-edged. No pun or ridicule was intended.


As an individual who use to take English classes over the phone with a Filipino instructor, I give you my word that even the mere thought of mocking Filipinos would never cross my mind.
I cannot tell you how much Filipino fans mean to me and as much as I love them, I would in no way
hurt or upset them.


I hope I have clarified any misunderstandings and once again I am truly sorry if I inadvertently
hurt anyone's feelings.


-i really love you, my Filipino fans..

Ghee's thoughts on the issue:
Whether it is true or not, I felt disappointed and sad that she did that. I admit that some Filipinos speak that way but it looked like an insult. I never liked Lee Da Hae since I haven't watched any of her drama. I don't know what else to say about this issue. One thing is for sure, she might have a not so good reputation among Filipinos.
