The Red Team

In my opinion, I got the best office mates.

Masaya. Makulit. Best in cramming. Hindi gaanong seryoso. Competitive in some ways. If you will be able to meet them, you’ll be forever young. 😀

RED TEAM

R-E-D Fight.
R-E-D Win.

That’s my office mates and friends. 🙂 We landed 2nd place on our company Christmas Party/Team Building. Great job, guys! Congrats to us. 😀

My First Pasta

I don’t cook or should I say, I am not a fan of cooking. I always believe that cooking is not for me. I can cook rice (hindi sa rice cooker ha) or even Adobo and there’s also a viand (I forgot the name) that I have been cooking for a while. But two weeks ago, I decided to cook pasta, Tuna Pesto Pasta. I have been meaning to cook this before the start of December. This is something different. For the first time, I was willing to cook. No hesitation and walang reklamo.

Being the “first-timer” in the kitchen, nataranta ‘ko. I don’t know what to do first. Good thing, my brother and mother helped me to finish what I started. Nakakapagod pala magluto. Hahaha! But it was a good start, don’t you think? 🙂

So, why did I cook? 3 Reasons:

1. I want to do something else aside from doing from involving myself too much in front of the computer, sleeping, watching movies and doing nothing.

2. Staring to do this for my own survival and well, to make others happy (?)

3. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Anyway, here’s what I cooked..

PESTO

 

And if you want to cook this, here’s the recipe:

Tuna Pesto Pasta

You will need:

  • 250 grams penne pasta
  • 6 cups water for boiling
  • 3 tbsp rock salt
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
  • 6 medium-sized ripe tomatoes
  • 1 can tuna flakes in oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pack Clara Ole Cheesy Pesto
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

How to prepare:

  1. Cook pasta using water and rock salt according to package direction.
  2. While cooking the pasta, blanch the tomatoes for one minute in the same boiling water. Remove the tomatoes and dip them in cold water to give them a “shock.” This way, it would be easier to peel off their skin. Once cold, peel off the skin, cut into cubes, and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet pan over medium to low heat, sauté garlic in olive oil. Avoid browning the garlic. Add the tuna. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for about one minute.
  4. Add the Clara Ole Cheesy Pesto sauce and tomatoes. Add the cooked pasta and mix thoroughly. Cook for a few more minutes while stirring occasionally.
  5. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese. Serve with garlic bread or crackers.

Random #1

Sa sobrang dami ng nararamdaman mo, hindi mo na rin s’ya kayang isulat. Matindi pa ‘yan kesa sa pinaghalo-halong pagkain sa isang boodle fight. Tipong hindi mo mahanap ‘yong salita na gusto mong sabihin. Buhol-buhol. Tapos hindi mo pa kontrolado.

Okay lang ako.

Hindi pala.

Minsan akala ko lang.

Okay lang muna sa ngayon.

Magiging okay din ‘yan.

Tingin ko Wala Naman Talaga ‘kong Standard

na sinusunod pagdating sa pagtingin sa pisikal na anyo ng lalaki. Hindi ako ‘yong tipo na “gusto ko ganyan”, “gusto ko ganito”. Napaka-random ko kasi pagdating sa ganyan. Basta swak sa paningin ko, okay na ‘ko dun. Basta kahit paano presentable sya, ayos ako dun.

At sa gitna ng pag-inom ng kape at paglanghap ng usok mula sa sigarilyo at tambutso, natanong ako ng mga ka-opisina kong lalaki kung ano ba ‘yung gusto ko sa lalaki. Parang hot seat ang nangyari. Parang pinagti-trip-an ako. Pero napaisip nga rin ako. Sa isip-isip ko, meron nga ba? Sa pagkakatanda ko, wala akong sinet na ganito-ganyan.

Pero heto na lang, para masabi lang na may standard kuno ako o kung standard man na matatawag ‘yan:

  • Hindi ko gusto ‘yong lalaking sobrang linis ‘pag tinignan mo mula ulo hanggang paa. Sige, sabihin na natin na vain. Ako kasi ‘yong babaeng hindi palaayos. Ni hindi nga ako marunong mag-apply ng make-up. Pati paglalagay ng pulbo eh hindi ko ‘yan ginagawa (once in a blue moon lang siguro).
  • Okay sa’kin ang long hair (basta bagay) tsaka kulot ang buhok. Appealing. Macho ang dating sa’kin ng mga ‘to.
  • Sa totoong buhay, hindi ako naaakit sa lalaking halata na ‘yong shape ng muscles. Pwera siguro kung artista ‘yan na crush ko.
  • Pagdating sa height, gusto ko mas matangkad sa’kin. Kahit 1 or 2 inches lang ang tangkad n’ya sa’kin, pwede ‘yon..
  • Hindi rin kaso sakin ‘yong complexion.

Tignan n’yo na lang siguro sila para malaman n’yo kung may pattern ba. Ako mismo kasi hindi ko matukoy eh. Laging personality lang kasi ang sa’kin.

Actually, kulang pa ‘yan. Nahiya na lang ako na lagyan pa. Hahaha 😀 O sige na, masyado na silang madami. 😀
