No I wasn’t watching Mulan before writing this post. It’s what I felt like during the sudden 2 weeks disappearance on my blog. Something mysteriously odd thing happened right? And for the first time it’s not because I didn’t want to blog, but it’s because, I was really doing something that’s why I couldn’t blog. I haven’t been employed (yet, I promise you, I will be employed this year!!!) but I have been working unofficially. I’ll be advertising it here as soon as I’m ready for everything and I’m excited for the prospect of it taking off. I sincerely hope/wish it does take off because it’ll be one of the biggest projects of my lives and this ain’t no school project anymore. You’ve only got yourselves and your customers to please. There’s no haggling for any grades, there’s only the will and the determination to succeed. Compared to my “emo” post a few months back, I think that this is a great improvement! Dad also enrolled me in a gym and I’ve been enjoying it for 3 weeks already. Been going 6 days a week and hopefully after a few months, I’d reach my desired weight goal. I’m also enjoying my friends’ work stories as they’ve just started working this month! I’m really so happy for them and I can’t wait to experience my turn at another corporate setting (I’m done with banks! XD)
As if the fates were telling me to keep this positivity up, I found this incredibly cute and inspirational blog of a 9 year old named Martha. Imagine that, blogging at 9 years old! (with LOTS of guidance from dad I think) This is why I love novels about boy/girl geniuses, it makes me wonder “Why couldn’t I be awesome as a kid like that?” Well anyway that’s just me. So what’s the hulabaloo about a 9 year old kid’s blog? Well she’s been featured in most news publications and even got a personal tweet from Jamie Oliver (I LOVE THAT CHEF! Inspiring and he has the CUTEST family ever *bawls*) because she’s been blogging everyday (for shame Tiff, for shame!) and taking pictures of her school’s lunches (or dinners is how they call it in Britain). And just recently, her the council (food or school council I’m not sure) even TOLD HER TO STOP POSTING FOOD PHOTOS! Whoah guys, wrong move since she’s practically a celebrity already with such a strong following. Don’t worry they took it back
We all know how monitoring school lunch food is in America because of all the publicity but we never thought about school food lunches and how it is AROUND THE GLOBE. Are they healthier or are they just full of junk? I love how this kid writes in her blog, so completely like a journal and even interacts with her visitors. She gets submissions of other school lunches from around the world and if I were still in school or grade school, I’d probably send her a photo too. I don’t think school lunch food is much of a problem here in the Philippines since most really are home/school made and no instant-thingies. And also based on my friends who went on student exchange to Korea, Korea has TONS TONS TONS of (healthy) food in their lunches and when I was in Lille, France, everything too was healthy and YUMMY! Huge ass servings too so it is quite interesting to see how different school lunches are around the Globe. Makes me want to go to my own grade school and take a random photo of a random kid’s lunch. I might scare the kid Anyway if you want to read this amazing 9 year old’s story, please visit her blog, Never Seconds. She calls herself Veg there though, in short for Veritas Ex Gustu (suggestion from Dad).
Makes me wonder what I would have blogged about when I was 9 years old. I think I’d probably blog about the little menagerie we had back then. I’d talk about our pet ferret and our 100 hamsters. Too bad they’re all gone. oh technology, why did thy come so late? Or why didn’t I blog sooner? Well I don’t think it’s good for children to blog that early WITHOUT proper guidance from parents. Sheesh the Internet is still a scary place.
So guys, please always aim to eat good food. I’ve become more interested in food topics ever since I started my hand at cooking again. I think what’s lacking here in the Philippines is a good old Vegetarian restaurant. There are HARDLY any veggie places out there. And when I recently visited my university and checked out the new students’ food stalls, NONE of them were serving any veggie dishes, WHY??? Sighs.
Hope you all have a good lunch! I know I am NOMNOMNOM (it’s semi-healthy… it has kimchi and red brown rice! LOTS OF VEGGIES. With cheese…) For the recipe, please visit this amazing Korean food blog/recipe site, Beyond Kimchee. I’m done with cooking Italia, now to conquer KOREAN FOOD!
