Crackers with Tuna and Pesto Sauce

I am home alone most of the time. Whenever hubby has no chance of joining me during lunch, I settle eating crackers in lieu of rice. Fortunately, I still have my Pesto sauce that I prepared last night, I thought of topping it on my crackers this time for a change. It is a perfect partner for my fruit juice.

I choose Clara Ole Cheesy Pesto and followed the recipe written on the back since it is very easy to prepare. In a hot pan, I put olive oil and sautéed garlic. I put the tuna flakes and let it simmer for one minute. I put the Clare Ole Cheesy Pesto and seasoned it with a little salt and ground pepper. Since, I wanted it to be more flavorful, I added Parmesan Cheese.

Easy, right?

Hope you try this as well. This is also good for snacks.

Sad History

I woke up seeing the sun shines brightly up in the sky today. It is a perfect day to laundry. Actually, I am planning to donate my blood this morning. However, I just have my menstruation so I will just cancel it. I just hope that next time I will be able to participate like in the previous.

Anyway, today also marks the anniversary of Typhoon Yolanda that tested my fellowman in the Philippines a year ago. It hits in the eastern Visayas part and left thousands dead and missing. Typhoon Yolanda or known as "Haiyan" was the deadliest typhoon ever reported.

Although some would not love to reminisce it, but it teaches us to be vigilant in the future. We must not belittle the power of natural calamities as it will likely lead to our own death. The saddest part is that we are warned, but we do not listen.

Seeing the news today on how the people tried to live as normal like before is every inspiring. I admit I am scared. I do not know what my feelings will be like if I undergo something like it. I am sure I will be crying and asking why is it happening to me. I can feel their anger, frustration and sadness. Their experiences throughout this journey from day one were all difficult and that I admire them the most. This sad story taught me that our saviour will always be there even in our lowliest part of our lives. Being alive is also a testament that happiness can be achieved to those who believe.

Out of Reached

My eagerness to update my blogs this time faces another problem and that is I cannot open my other site. My eight years Shengysdelight's blog is out of reach again. I do not know if I will have to give up on it because until now I still have no idea of the whereabouts of my administrator. I do not personally know him. I guess this is the bad side, but in fairness my transactions before with him were running smoothly. Maybe he is just busy.

One of the common problems of my blog before is that someone is trying to change my settings. Thus, signing is a big problem. My password was changed. I do not know why someone has a time to mess my unpopular blog. I am not a celebrity unlike the others. It made me wonder how they run it and make the blog administrator's mind puzzled. Is it common to Wordpress users? How that these administrators prefer to use Wordpress than Blogger? Mmmmmm...

To inform you frankly, I am not good how Wordpress works. Shengysdelight was given to me by my office mate before. He just taught me how to publish and make money out of it. Nothing more, nothing less. He is also responsible how my blog will look like as long as I will tell him what is my preference and that's it.

For now, I can say I am more comfortable using blogger. I know how to edit my site any time and it's user-friendly. Though I am not closing my doors to know anything about Wordpress, I love if there is someone who has time to teach me and I will be a happy student. I am planning to have another site if my finances permit. I love writing and sharing my experiences on the World Wide Web.

GenSan Resident

Hello guys!

It's been awhile that I was able to visit this site again. Of course, I am worried that my laziness will overrule me to stop it, but I am determined to continue it especially now that hubby is supporting my first love. I know I have plenty of time it's just that I have to manage my time well.

I am now a certified housewife. Although I was doubtful at first to submit my resignation letter because I am going to miss my worktable, but I realized that I did the right thing. Hubby's blood pressure is now in its normal-level. He already has enough sleep and long travels is not an issue anymore. I felt relieved.

I am now residing in General Santos City that is far away from home, but hubby's employer gave us free accommodation and other perks so it will not be hard for us to transfer. We brought our three dogs to keep me company while hubby is working so I guess they help me not to get bored since we still have no kids.

I have many realizations after resigning. I thought being a housewife was very easy since I have time to rest and sleep. Yes, I have time to sleep, but maintaining cleanliness in the house, cooking our three meals in a day, doing our laundry, washing dishes, ironing, gardening, attending our dogs hygiene, budgeting, wife duties, etc. aren't that simple. I sweat like I am doing my Zumba. I admit that during my first week, I was really exhausted. I can't do it all in one day! Whenever I sit, my mind redirect me to other chores that I have to attend made me skip resting. What is happening to me? Hahaha! I now understand my mother. Now, I know. I salute all the housewives out there especially those who have kids.

Plus, I invited my nephew and nieces to spend their semestral break and it taught me again that having them is not a joke. My patience was tested that time. Attending their personal needs like giving them their snacks and food of their choice panicked me. This is what my godmother taught me that my experience is not comparable to other housewives who have kids. Our mess is just a small problem compared to them. Hihihihi! I do not know if they will visit again because I remembered I lose my patience when they were here. Hahahaha!

Until now we are still hoping to have kids of our own. We still have faith on that. If that time comes I am sure I am a changed woman. (wink) :)

Guys, since I am new to GenSan, I promise to share my experiences here so that you will know my opinions about this place. For now, all I can say is that I am happy that hubby is embracing a lesser stress life. Thank you, God.

I am a Fan!

Sometimes our usual lunch break would be visiting a mall of our choice. Today, we opted to visit NCCC Mall. We just want to eat our favorite fried TACO and Buko Shake. TO our surprise, we came across to these pictures below:

  expendables on 365 Project 

 OMG! My favorite "The Expendables" stars! Even if I am wearing my office uniform I was not hesitant to pose myself in front of them. Hahaha! Although "The Expendables 3" is already available on the internet for download, nothing compares watching it on big screen. I'll just wait. This movie is the most anticipated movie of hubby.

Hello August

This is the day I am waiting for.  Today, I am starting to do the things according to our plans. This might be scary for me, but today I believe that I am already ready.  I am not nervous or worried about what will happen.  I know that my intentions are clear and I am doing this because my husband needs my support.  I know God will never forsake us.  He will always be there as long as we have faith him.

I know I will be missing my work.  I know I will be missing my friends and office mates that are so dear to me.  I know I will be missing the company's simple celebration of Christmas and Valentines Day. Mmmmmm..This is it! God bless to us.

Holiday for Eid al-Fitr

We are off for a holiday day today in observance of Eid al-Fitr of our Muslim brothers and sisters.  For your information, our country houses Muslims as well aside from Christians.  Honestly, I am clueless of what is it all about and I realized that it is like our Easter Sunday celebration after our fasting.

Because of the said feast, our malls are offering holiday sale.  Not only Muslims will be happy about this.  I am sure that shoppers will include this on their list on what season that our malls offer great deals and that includes me.

Once again, to my Muslim brothers and sisters happy ‘Eid Mubārak or Happy "Blessed Eid".

May we have a meaningful celebration today.
