I Choose to be Happy

In life, there are many decisions to make. Usually, we are presented with two different choices, sometimes more. We normally decide based on what we think is right, good for us, or fair to all. Sometimes, we decide based on what our heart says. We decide on what makes us happy.

This year, I choose to be happy. I choose not to make grand plans for myself, career-wise and all. I will take everything slowly yet surely. Yeah, like one step at a time. I will not expect anything. I will just let myself do what it needs to do without sacrificing the quality of my life and my happiness and those of the people I love.

No New Year’s Resolutions for Me in 2012

Well, I just thought I won’t make any New Year’s resolutions this year of the dragon. No, it’s not because I’m not inspired nor determined to make this year as fruitful as the previous one. It’s not because I’ve stopped being a dreamer, either.

Actually, it’s simply because I don’t wanna impose on myself anymore. I don’t wanna put pressure upon myself anymore. This year, I have promised myself that I’d just do the things that will make me happy and content one plan at a time. There will be no deadlines, no impractical and impossible wishes that are only bound to make me frustrated about myself in the end.

How I Deal with Rudeness

Rudeness is everywhere. If you ignore it, it grows and multiplies. If you confront it, it either stops or dies a natural death. I don’t know with you, but I deal with rudeness quite differently. Sometimes I ignore it, sometimes I face it head-on. It must be because I’m the type of girl who chooses her battles wisely.

Why try earning the respect of someone who does not know how to respect himself? Why bother yourself to call the attention of someone who does not know what he’s doing or is simply insensitive of other people’s feelings? If my credibility is being destroyed, my dignity attacked and my reputation put on the line, I fight back and do my best to take the enemy down. I do the same when I am deprived of my rights or when my family is dragged into the issue.

On Food and Food Trips

If there’s one thing I love doing the most aside from sleeping, that would be eating. I find joy in eating. I find pleasure in the company of food. I get a sense of freedom just by tasting various dishes. I remember I used to eat a lot when I was growing up. Now that I’m a grown up, I know I can’t eat a lot anymore. My metabolism is slower now which means I gain pounds easily. But that doesn’t stop me from appreciating good food, whether using my own money or thru food treats I get from friends every now and then.

You can say that I also love food trips, too. Travel plus food equals happiness in my book. When I say food trip, the food doesn’t have to be expensive and the trip doesn’t have to be far, either. It could be anywhere, so long as my feet and my tummy can take me there. My two recent memorable food trips (King Chef Fine Dining and Casa Roces), for instance, took place in the metro. When it comes to good food, I’m always ready to go.
