Favorite Rainy Season Treats

Ola! 

How was your weekend? Was is as breezy as mine? haha! kidding aside I have a new post for you all! 

I know the past week had been a bitch, don't deny! it has been raining since Monday and I hate it when it rains! The only thing that I like when it is raining is I don't have to go to school when I was younger. But now that I am working I have to suck it up because the only reason I can skip work is either I am sick or I am stuck because of flooding. 

Since it has been raining I was able to enjoy some simple treats to beat the cold weather. 

I am currently on a diet, but I am allowed to have soups on that diet. and I was able to enjoy Beef Mami and some Lucky Me with Embutido omelet. 

Lucky Me Beef Mami and embutido omelet

Spicy Beef Mami ^_^

Eating Mami is one of the things that I really like about staying during the rainy season.I ate these last Friday and Saturday ^_^

What is your favorite Rainy Season treat? 

Much Love!

Have you seen the Red Moon last night?

Have you seen the Lunar eclipse last night? 

I was able to see this spectacular view from the comfort of my home. It was said that a red moon during a lunar eclipse is not a common sight and usually it takes decades to see one. 

I was lucky to see this and don't have to pay a fee! haha!

I actually stayed up until 3 in the morning to see the eclipse and how slowly the moon turns red. It actually had 3 colors if see it without binoculars. During the first few minutes there was a white, then succeeding is a faint orange that intensifies over a couple of minutes then it has turned into a fiery red. 

This Lunar eclipse is also the longest. it lasted for 11 minutes. The view was spectacular. Although there were obstructions where I was looking i.e. the commercial building besides our house. But nonetheless the scene was worth remembering. 

We'll never know when we'll be seeing another red moon. But I hope to see a blue moon next time ^_^

Much Love

simple cravings during my period.

When I have my period I act like a pregnant woman going thru her first trimester. Usually on the first day of my period I feel sluggish and don't really want to move unless I have to go into the bathroom. 

I am not like other girls there that crave for green mangoes on their period. I usually crave for cold and hot beverages. I actually bought myself a hot tea and a Dark mocha frap back then when I was working in the call center! haha! 

One of the food that I crave the most besides from hot and cold beverages I also crave for fruits like grapes, apple, and oranges. When I was still working as a call center agent I would buy like 3 kilos of grapes from the grocery near our office. 

Craving is kinda something I can hold back when needed. But when I cannot hold it back anymore I would just do it. 

What is your special craving? Let me know ^_^

Much Love!

Manila bans Facebook during work

Just saw this post from Yahoo a couple of minutes ago regarding banning Facebook at work - especially at government offices. 

Honestly speaking a lot of companies have banned Facebook at work. I have worked in a call center for a year and I have seen people accessing their accounts through their work stations. I'm not gonna come clean but I was part of those that did that. But nonetheless Facebook is now part of our lives. 
And even if they ban Facebook in their servers there is a lot of means to access the site without getting detected - trust me, I live with two computer addicts / professionals. Its pretty easy to go through third party links to access Facebook. 

Banning Facebook is actually not a way to discipline your employees. And also the employees will be the one to decide if they want to abide by the rules or not. 

Just saying! 

:D
