January Recap

IMG_8697 copy

I have gotten a lot of blog ideas listed in my cutesy little notepad but the some circumstances do not allow them to materialise. Major culprit? My laptop. I have to recover first my blog files in my external hard drive because apparently it isn’t MAC compatible. Well, that’s my problem and I’m going to get it done in the next two weeks.


I actually don’t believe in signs or apparitions but the early weeks of January hit me real hard that made me think “Oh man… 2016’s gonna be an unfortunate year for me.” Let me share the unimportant news that I spent New Year’s Eve in my room while watching Scandal and blowing my stuffy nose as if my it’s part of the firework mess happening at that moment. To make things more interesting, I was all alone in the house. Apparently, the family went to the grandparent’s abode and I have zero energy to come.

I was sick and nearly dead for two weeks. The mucus coming out from my nose and mouth (because I was coughing really hard too) was really unusual in colour, sometimes with blood. I was so close to checking with the doctor but my condition got better along the way.

A week immediately after going back to 100%, I decided not to be a “lolo” and join some friends for a night out. I got drunk, drove the motorcycle home, and went home with blood in my arms, knees, and chin. As of the moment, my wounds have finally healed but these big scars will forever be chiseled in my skin.


I always find time to go out with the family every time I have my rest days and there’s no better way to catch up over good food. This month’s yummy finds were Santouka’s ramen and katsu set and fresh pasta dishes from a pasta place in Solenad 3. Lol, I’ll have to work on my memory but that place is pretty on point.

On the other food news, I have an intense craving for cereals. The past week, I have been eating it with soy milk or almond milk for breakfast.


I had my first consumption using my own salary. I finally bought a Macbook after doing research online and asking friends for recommendations. I was contemplating on getting one since my work do not require an extra personal computer because the company has provided us our own station PCs. But most of the time, I have to do some personal work (including blog work) and some other things that I can’t do in my phone feel better if ย I use a laptop like…

  • Netflix
  • Torrent
  • iTunes and Spotify
  • Reading fics

Did you get my logic? Me too, I don’t get it.

Lately, I have been watching on Netflix, mostly food documentaries. As much as I want to spazz over NetflixPH, I guess they still have to up their catalogue. For now, I gotta Torrent and Chill. lol


I bought my dog some fancy collar. *u*

Adieu January. To February. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your January was really a shock! I hope you’re doing better now. I also got sick on the first week of January, been absent at work for a few days ant it got me paranoid I might have a disease or something. Thankfully I got better and despite that, I don’t want to think of it negatively. I just have to eat healthier this time and become more active. I don’t wanna get sick anymore. I also hope you’ll be healthier and be safe throughout the year. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Congrats on getting your own laptop! I think that’s a good investment if you use it for a lot of things. ๐Ÿ™‚ I only have a netbook with me and I even barely use it. I face the computer at work for 8hrs or more a day and all I want to do when I get home is sleep haha So I don’t see the need of a new laptop yet.

    I’m drooling over the food! It feels nice to buy yourself something using your own money. The first thing I bought with my own money was a Macbook too but now it’s too old to function lol.

    • Reply Chester February 2, 2016 at 6:45 pm

      Yeah! I still remember when you got your new laptop that looks and works like Mac as well! Haha

    OMG please take care of yourself! I just realized you were back, too! I think last time I was here, you’d still been looking for work. So, it’s good to see that you’re part of the workforce now! Here’s to the rest of your 2016!!

    P.S.: pahingi ng katsu
