I love this week. It’s sinking in now that I am officially unemployed. I miss eating meals with my parents and the comfort of rainy days not rushing to either home or work. I’m alone in our house, no choice but to do this, and today is my first attempt to go out in plain shirt and shorts, my target destination—the market.
Our barangay has a very humble wet market. It’s like the ones you’ll see in barrios and provinces. I love it. No hassle and the goods are relatively cheap. I brought PhP150 with me without any idea what to buy. So there, I ended up getting some random things. The first was something that I’m not used in eating, the street ice scramble. The last time I ate this was when I was in late grade school. LOL
It actually evolved too. Now, they got strawberry syrup and other ice flavors too, together with the conventional milk powder, and chocolate syrup. I hope after eating this, the ‘nature’ won’t call! Hehe! It’s delicious, for the record.
I also bought ‘mani’. I miss this bigtime!!! Nothing beats like the street-cooked peanuts. It has a distinct taste a home-made one cannot achieve. I don’t wanna know where the taste come from. LOL
And the best deal I got ever in my ‘marketing’ history… Three big tilapia fish + free grill for PhP90. Haha!
I’m loving this simple life. I’m making the most of these moments since I can’t be unemployed, of course, for so long. When I start in a TV network next month, I know I can’t do this anymore. So my dinner for tonight will be very Filipino—grilled tilapia, brown rice, partnered with soy sauce, chilli and calamansi. Taralets!
