Multi-flavored Positivity

Since I did something really big in my life last week, of which totally deserves a separate post, my friend L dragged to the nearest European pub to loosen up and talk about NSFW things. This is after we locked ourselves in a fireproof vault for a good 30 minutes, where I told her about my big girl decision, and almost cried.

It's scaring me a bit, that I, at this age, always go against the tide and all the stereotypes of being a daughter and a girl. First, I refused to take up Nursing, that I intentionally didn't attend my first day and dropped my subjects, which forced my aunt (who is in the registrar's office) to pull some strings and place me back to the class where I want to be: Communications. Second, when things were getting nasty with my mom and dad, I, at age 17, asked demanded my dad to leave the house. We didn't talk for years, but met on the 3rd Christmas eve, and we are the closest up to this day. Now, another huge decision I made, career wise, which deserves some help from Jack Daniels and Cerveza to at least settle in.

But let me keep it to myself for now, and just focus on the feel better dinner I had afterwards.


Jack Daniels + Cheeses + Supportive Friends = Multi-flavored Positivity! =)


English Pub at its finest.


A Cheese Sucker's Discovey: Ploughman's Cheese Plate (Php 375)
Bread, Crackers, Pickled Onion, Ham, Tomato, Apple, Blue & Cheddar Cheese

Cult's Favorite: European Fish & Chips (Php 225)
Tender Fish in Beer Batter, Hand cut Fries, Mashed Peas.

JD's substitute.

If all my decisions are to be followed by a night of no nonsense talk and good food with wise, highly sensitive friends, then maybe, adult things wouldn't be that hard!


Have you done some BIG decisions lately?

  2. Yes! I've done so many big decisions for the past year! I guess that's really a proof that you are growing up and getting to know the "real world" ganyan talaga, pero God Is good, He does not forget to give us friends :)

  5. As we grow older and wiser there will come a time in our life that we need to think hard and decide on something big. And no matter how big that decision that is...i know you're on the right track and I believe in you. :) Plus you have a lot of great friends to back you up and you have all the love and support. God Bless you Tweenie! :)
