Saturdays

Today I am writing from home, where I’ve been for most of the day.  I started out though on a mission to see new places today with J. We saw a total of two, both of which didn’t win us over. Nonetheless, we are not deterred, we know our new home is waiting for us, we will find one perfect for our little tribe.

The rest of the day I spent with my little punk, and researching online, trying to get everything together and in line for when I formally leave my job on Wednesday next week.  It’s exciting this new path I’m on.  I love my company, my job, my team and even clients, but it is time to shift. And boy, this shift I’ve taken on is going to be a DOOZY. Well, it’s the ballsiest move I’ve ever done professionally, and I’m scared… but I’m equally, if not more, excited for the prospect of what lies ahead. 🙂

To continue, let me give everyone who reads this, some new music: https://soundcloud.com/chocolategrass/better-than-a-kiss-itself

I love these guys! I get to see them play in one more production / gig I’m putting on. YAY! Check them out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ChocolateGrass?fref=ts  They are a bunch of sweethearts too 🙂

If you, like me, have problems with your gut (I believe it is due to my love for spicy chilies), join me in trying out these three recipes I found.  I don’t know what else I can use in place of coriander and fennel seeds as we don’t have those here in Manila, or they are very hard to find. Any advice on this would be welcome 🙂

And because I love mashed potatoes and recently found the glorious joy of eating sweet potatoes, please fellow potato lover, join me in reading through this post and salivating profusely and with abandon.

Because I’m a bit of an Anglophile, and I love the Brits and their gloomy weather and rich history, I saw THIS, the worst years in their history.  And here I thought I was having a bad year!!! Jeebus.

Another little link to history: these woman are pretty badass. Yeah Joan of Arc is there, but there are a couple of onna-bugeisha, or Samurai women, that are listed down too. WICKED.

This is just fun. Walt Disney characters using Instagram. I had quite the chuckle, especially with the hashtags.

J and I love orange juice, and the fresh kind of course, but sometimes it is tedious to just keep squeezing oranges. So you tend to reach for the easiest thing which is frozen or boxed juice.  I won’t anymore after reading this.

Why you should turn off or at least put your mobile on AIRPLANE mode whilst traveling. It’s just RUDE.

As I mentioned, I’m about to do the single most ballsy thing I’ve ever professionally done.  This article I stumbled on has been bookmarked and sent to my email inbox just to have as a constant reminder of the next steps, or foreseeing the inevitable stumbles I will have to go through.  Maybe those who are on the same path as I can find some comfort in this reading too. There is this article as well, to help remember the practicality of my dreams 🙂

I don’t know if you will ever venture coming to our beautiful islands, but if you do, there is a growing neighborhood that has little pockets of great food popping up.  It’s called Kapitolyo, it is my hood, and I love it.  Here are the 8 essential places you should go eat.

I love the Godfather I and II but never liked III.  In the place of Godfather III, I always watched Goodfellas, because, “You know, we always called each other good fellas. Like you said to, uh, somebody, ‘You’re gonna like this guy. He’s all right. He’s a good fella. He’s one of us.’ You understand? We were good fellas. Wiseguys.” And the car scene with the ending piano track of “Layla”. C’MON MAN.  Awesomeness.  I saw this from Ray Liotta the dude who played Henry Hill in Good Fellas.  Fun little trivia 🙂

Lastly, to those who suffer from wanderlust as I do, here are some links to useful little sites and apps to take with you.

Hope you enjoyed some new music and the stuff I stumble upon. I’ll be putting up some DIY things on the net that I’ve tried out in my own home soon. I’m just trying to get the pictures together. Cheers and have a great weekend 😉
