February to March 2015
Hello, dolls! Hello, September! So I want to something new, nothing big, I don’t think it’s even that important that I am now questioning myself why I am spending n minutes typing about it HA. Anyway, every year my first entry for the month of September will be titled “Winter is Coming”. #YunLang lol
Obviously the reference is from Game of Thrones (I can’t believe we have to wait until next summer for season 7!!! It eels like a gazillion years!). Anyway, September first marks the “first day” of the Christmas season in the Philippines. I can’t really say that here in the US because we celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving before Christmas and the end of September is all about fall so yeah. I kind of miss being excited about Christmas once September rolls in.
The other day, A made a comment about how horrible this summer has been (because it was tooo hot everyday) and how he wishes it’s already winter.
I told him I want to try not to say “I can’t wait for winter” during summer, and “I can’t wait for summer” during winter. We sound like a broken record every year, and honestly I feel like we will always complain about the temperature towards the end of each season.
Good thing there’s food for us to enjoy every time we get too whiny about the weather!
Here are a couple of our food adventures during winter last year.

Visited one of our mentors slash previous Executive Chef. It’s always nice to talk to people who has been in the food industry for a very long time. It makes me motivated and they remind me of why I am doing what I do now.
