Getting To Know You & Me, Prompts

Getting To Know You & Me Vol. 03

My goal for blogging started as posting as much as possible setting a personal gauge of 4 times a month or weekly in that case. Guess I have reached my goal and went beyond it. I just hope that when work finally comes in, I would still be able to maintain how fequent posts in my blog come in.

Anyway, I am answering another volume of GTKY&M (check vol. 01 & 02) from which questions came from Camie.

Questions:

  1. What’s a dish, that if you left your home country for a foreign country for 6 months, you’d instantly miss?
  2. You’re given Php 60,000 by a really cool stranger to go to the airport and pick from any destination in the world to travel to that very moment where would you go
  3. What’s the most attractive trait (physical or non-physical) the opposite sex can have?
  4. What’s your biggest turn off? (Doesn’t necessarily have to be about the opposite sex but in general.)
  5. You’re feeling down and blue, what’s your go-to comfort food?

Answers:

  1. As much as I want to admit that I’m a sucker for adobo (all kinds), I had totally developed a new food love and relationship with Vigan’s pinakbet and bagnet, or pinakbet with big chunks of bagnet. P.S. I’m still vegan, don’t worry. I have no plans of indulging on a bagnet anytime soon eventhough my personal vegan challenge will end in 2-3 days.
  2. I don’t know if Php 60,ooo is enough but I’ll pick the top sin city and my secret dream destination, Amsterdam.
  3. I’ve always been attracted by humor.
  4. I loathe people who are ungrateful, people who are not capable of recognizing other people’s act of kindness especially when it was a favor asked from you. I mean, is it that hard to say “thank you?” Really?
  5. Definitely chocolates. Need I say more?

    1. I would miss freshly caught seafood! Halibut or salmon & chips, straight up. Oh and king crab! I’m specifically talking about Alaska in general. I think I wouldn’t miss Filipino food because I feel like with the Filipino diaspora all over the world, you can find Filipino food if you really look or you can at least find the ingredients.

    2. How much is 60,000 pesos in dollars or Euros? I actually wouldn’t know. If it were enough to match the COL in any place, I’d pick Mykonos, Greece. I’ve always had a fascination with it. If it wasn’t enough, I’d just go back to Poro Point in La Union because I guess Thunderbird Resort is close enough. haha

    3. A regard to other human beings and their value is a great quality to have — no one is the center of anything.

    4. A grown-up arguing or still holding angst towards their parents, I find it so immature and annoying.

    5. Hmm, I don’t think of “comfort food” in that way. I always associated that term with food that makes you feel at home, at least with how I’ve heard it used. But if food could cure sadness, I’d eat chicken fried steak & eggs. (Sorry, I know you went vegan.) =p

      Hi Shayne! I enjoyed reading your answers!

      First, I believe so too that Pinoy food can easily be made from finding the right ingredients but there’s just something when you eat it a home. King crab, that’s one of my food bucketlist! I get to see on when I was in Korea but really never had a chance to buy and cook it.

      Second, Mykonos is indeed one of the “dream.” Shayne you must check out Balesin! It’s an island part of Quezon province and I think it’s really giving you the Mykonos vibes!

      Third, someone who wants to be the center of anything shall be jailed into a room. Get her/him what he/she deserves.

      Fourth, I kinda agree with that but I must honestly admit that I sometimes argue with parents. But I do not hold grudge for long. I’m with them everyday and I just know that I’ll keep coming back at them. I love my mama & papa.

      And lastly, chicken fried steak with gravy. =( Just the thought of it makes me want to pop some in the kitchen. Huhu!

        Oh, we’ve been to Balesin! But WHY OH WHY did it end up being taken over by a corporation? Schucks! I loved it there and the air was so amazing. I hear it’s more of an exclusive island now, is that true? Or can anyone still visit?

          Yes!!!! =( It’s now an exclusive island. Some friends went there by invites only. And just recently, a celebrity couple got married there. I think we have to go through an application for membership for access! Really sad. =(

    1) LECHON! Oh my God. I’d kill someone just to have that crispy balat of lechon!

    2) Either Dubai, United Arab Emirates or Kathmandu, Nepal

    3) Wit and humor ALL THE WAY!

    4) Immaturity and stupidity. Sorry, I have low tolerance for stupid and immature people.

    5) I actually have a LOT of comfort food – CHICKEN JOY, Any ramen from Kichitora, Caramel Beer of Rue Bourbon (haha lasenggo lang), Cadbury Fruits and Nuts, Samgyupsal, and Kimchi Rice.

        Hahaha! Because I ain’t a fan of gulay. My mom keeps on reminding me to eat gulay everyday. Bleugh. (Ang arte ng spelling lol)
