Welcome to TheEatingMeetings!

I’ve actually been toying with the idea of starting a food blog for a long time already, but I never got around to doing it. I finally decided to create a separate blog (please do check out my personal page @ http://yoursummerstar.tumblr.com) because every time I eat (a lot of times - I tell you - I’m always hungry), I kind of make mental notes about the service/the place/the flavors/the food in my head. I also like reading other food blogs (making new discoveries, thanks to Bacolod Food Hunters) and torturing myself with food porn (salivating on fyeahwe’rehungry’s page). To sum it up, I’ve always had a thing for writing reviews and, well, eating - so this is definitely the next step!


Here are some things you might like to know about me (before reading the rest of my blog):

1. I am not a food expert. No impressive diplomas, no culinary classes - hell, I even sometimes mix garlic and onion up - so whatever I write here will be my personal no-frills opinion. If you’re looking for something more technical, this isn’t your site. Also, I’m reviewing these food stops as a paying customer - no sponsorship or whatever.


2. I love chicken. So I will always be slightly partial to poultry dishes.


3. I’m a fitness buff gone horribly, horribly astray. This may be TMI, but I was actually a loooot overweight for a while - so when I was trying to trim down, I was a walking calorie calculator. Right now I’m happier with my weight so I’ve become more lenient and my love for food has overcome my weird skinny bitch phase, but there will always be moments when I lose it and snap back to crazy drop-that-spoon-of-Nutella-no-carbs-allowed dragon lady. In behalf of the annoying posts complaining about high-calorie meals while stuffing them down my throat, I apologize.


4. I’m allergic to a lot of our underwater friends. Luckily, I have a pet bf that eats anything and everything.


5. I’m really just another Bacolod belly who loves to eat and write and about it. :)

Almost done with my new theme! I thought it was finally time to switch things up a bit. I have had my old theme for ages.

I wanted something simple, not overboard and kind of minimalist— but I just wasn t ready to let go of colors yet. And so, the result is this semi-disaster-but-may-still-be-a-good-thing thing. Haha. A few things are still not quite right though, I have to fix them tomorrow. (Icons, colors, tacks, arrows) It is kind of hard to do all this when your keyboard is going loco on you. (Ugh, no backspace, apostrophe, prt scrn keys.)

What do you think?

I was strolling around in the park with a friend earlier, when this tiny pug came up to me and started playing and hugging and horsing around. AAAAHHH, so adorbz, so short and stout. According to the owner, Crinkle/s just one year old. I don/t usually like small dogs, but for this little baby — I/m making an exception.

#goodday

(Forgive the /s, my apostrophe key is still kind of fucked up. And, no, I don/t usually put my sunglasses up on my head like that. I was just too excited to play with Crinkle that I had to hurriedly get them off my face. Haha. Just saying.)

I am not a perfect person.

I have never though of myself as such, and I probably never will.

There are so many things I don’t like about me. Thighs that frenchkiss when I walk, lips that are always a tad bit too dry, hair that fights off even the strongest of all hair sprays — and it’s not just the physical aspect, either. I talk too loud. I’m too gutsy, too forward, too frank. I’m stubborn; I hate not getting what I want. I’m a big mess of conflicting ideas and mixed-up thoughts.

Sometimes, it just gets to me, you know? What if I don’t want to be a “bad girl” anymore? Am I being too easy? Why do I have fun seeing other people suffer? Does it even matter if they deserve it or not? All of my not-so-nice traits piling up, all these negative characteristics that influence make up who I am — sometimes, I wish I could just wake up the next morning and be a totally different person. We’re talking a major personality overhaul. It’s so hard to change and be a better person when all your life all you’ve been is “that girl”.

But then I remember, that this is who I am. It’s the ME that took eighteen years to get here, eighteen years to be this sometimes-annoying-but-mostly-just-fun-loving bitch. And if there are facets of me that I do want to change, it probably won’t take overnight. I may have an unpleasant side, but I sure as fuck know how to have kick-ass fun. There may be things I regret doing or regret being, but I’ve got a big future ahead and life’s just too short to look back on past mistakes. Hell, I may even do these mistakes over again, but whatever — I am who I am, ugliness and all.

So yeah, I’m not a perfect person.
I have never thought of myself as such. And I never will.

And it’s not so bad. :)

(After a series of bad decision after another, right after vowing not to make the same mistakes, I just had to make this entry to stop myself from entering my self-hate/self-pity mode. It’s a long, incomprehensible rant; but I needed to get my mind of so many things that I really shouldn’t dwell so much on.)

It’s so sad to see my account lose so many followers - but I can’t blame them. The last time I posted here was probably a month ago. Sorry for being so busy!

On other news, I’m hopefully graduating soon! I’m currently serving my OJT requirement of 1,080 hours at Riverside Hospital as medical technology intern. It’s been way fun - lots of new experiences and new friends. Just got home from a night shift, though - so my eyes are killing me and my brain is shutting off. Hope I can talk more soon! :>

Leave me a msg! :)
