Jag älskar mat! (I love food!)

And not just because its the holiday season! I eat a lot...as in A LOT. Ewan ko ba pero baka sa previous life ako, isa akong kargador sa pier or isang construction worker.

I know its kinda weird pero I was soooooo fat before I even had pictures of food in my phone...seriously.

I think was waistline was 40 inches. Yeah. I think it is. I saw my prom slacks just this week. Gives me chills down my spine. Bbbrrrr....

I dunno how I lost the weight. Maybe I just grew taller? Maybe I passed puberty na? I didn't exercise that much and I didn't even bother taking diet pills before but the weight didn't go back na...Was it just baby fat? I think so.


The photo above is was taken a few months back. I really dont have anything much to do so I decided to just eat. I was alone then so I didn't even bother making pa-cute kapag nakain. So I ordered what I feel like ordering. At ayan ang kinalabasan. Meal na pang 3 tao. Ayan ang "before picture" pala.

At itong nasa kanan naman ay ang "after picture". Parang dinaanan lang ng bagyo. Sigh.

Maybe I have super human metabolism na din kaya no matter what I eat, hindi na ako nag-ge-gain ng weight. Maintained na lang.

But for the past few months, I have decided to take care of my health more seriously. Recently, I have made two trips to the hospital...in the same month. Tsk tsk. I was kinda worried na din eh but the doctors said na wala naman daw akong sakit. (Nag-iinarte lang?!?! Hahaha)

So this time, I'm gonna work out and hit the gym more frequently. We have equipment sa house namin but I just use it whenever I feel like using it. Sigh. Minsan lang pala talaga maging bata. I should take the opportunity na while I'm young, work out. Magiging plus points din yun sa pagiging isang model. (Pinipilit ako ni Luch na mag-work out. He can't wait to see me in one of those runway shows. I wish I could pero insecure pa din ako sa katawan ko.) (Hindi naman kasi "katawan" talaga ang pinapakita sa commercials and print ah! hehehe)

By the way, since I'm talking about food, nagugutom ako. Pero mamaya na ako kakain. I just wanna share these pictures to you guys.

Since I'm not good at cooking "real food" (pero magaling ako when it comes to desserts!), laging instant ang niluluto ko. Pancit canton. Instant mami. Instant fried rice. Sigh. And whenever I stay at Luch's condo and ako ang in charge sa food, I always order/pa-deliver/bring KFC, Jollibee, Mcdo, Chowking, Yellow Cab, "Panta" (as in "pantawid gutom" - kapag short na sa budget..hehehehe) etc...

Hindi na daw healthy ang kinakain namin. Alam ko naman yun eh. Pero masarap kasi. Hehehe.

But you know what, kung ako hindi ko sya maipagluto, si Luch, kaya nya akong gawan ng food. At hindi lang basta food. Masarap pa. I really appreciated all of his efforts when we have dinner together at his condo. He cooks real food for me while I just buy junk food. LOL.

Eto ang ilan sa mga nailuto nya na sa akin...And I have the habit of taking pictures of the food he cooks for us.


Isang kare...isang menu...isang dinugu...isang siniga....heheheh..joke lang. Isang masarap na adobo ala Luch! (Muntik nya na akong sabuyan ng toyo ng sinabi kong "wow! Ang sarap ng chicken curry!)


Eto naman ang isa sa kanyang mga creations. Tuna with chunky tomatos in wheat pasta. Syempre kelangan talaga may itlog. Ito ang isa sa mga favorite ko.


Ito ang pinaka-best! (Pinaka na, best pa!) Grilled chicken sandwich with romaine and iceberg lettuce in wheat bread! OHA! Healthy na healthy! Parang gusto ko nga magpagawa nyan ngayon eh.

I think for some of the people out there, the food tastes best when it was prepared by someone who cares and loves you. The scent and flavour mixes well with the sweet conversation that you have with them while eating. And the fact that you know that it was someone you love who exerted effort to cook something for you makes the food even more special...Tama nga ang kasabihan.
