Superbowl Champions

02.03.13: Fresh start

Don’t you just love the feeling that you get when something unthinkable happens and you feel renewed after you have been blessed with the perfect answer to fix it? Having the opportunity to have a fresh start once in a while in life is a gift. If there’s something that I would always be thankful for from the past (almost) 3 years of my life, it would be the day that I got my heart broken and got healed with God. It’s really different when you submit your life to God and just let Him draw you to the path of happiness and trust Him in everything. After the beautiful thing of me getting my heart broken and being healed, it made me realize that some of the most beautiful things in life come from the most painful events. I may sound vague but yeah…life has continuously blessed me with amazing things and I just can’t stop talking about it. I AM TOO OBSESSED WITH LIFE.

Today is Sunday, and I am very grateful for having the opportunity to go to church and reflect on life on a different level. The overwhelming feeling that I get every time I step in the church is just too priceless. Much more when I get to influence someone in having a better spiritual life. Today is a blessing, it’s another day and I know that I started my day right..with him,and Him. 🙂


The last 2 weeks of January was a total roller coaster ride for me. It really shaped up the capital R in my life and I am just thankful that I got through that with joy and a whole heart.

The first Sunday of February was a celebration of life for us. A celebration of how we got through something horrible,and a celebration for the city that I have learned to love.

Wings ; Spinach dip ; Beer battered onion rings ; and chips for my first Superbowl game! 🙂

I feel lucky cause the Ravens made it to the Superbowl during my first year here! How awesome is that? For 21 years I have never cared anything about football. And in just a matter of few months, after I watched my first football game in the M&T Stadium, I became a Ravens fan.

Wings ; spinach dip ; beer battered onion rings ; and chips for our Superbowl XLVII night! 🙂


And since we are lucky, we got sushi to make the night more awesome! 🙂

Super Bowl XLVII - Baltimore Ravens v San Francisco 49ers

It was a great game but I won’t blab about it cause it’s just not me… HAHA! But all I can say is… Joe Flacco is too hot for my life and the Ravens is lucky to have him as our quarterback!!!!!!!!! 🙂

I am so ecstatic, until now, that we are the Superbowl XLVII champions!!!!!!! 🙂 Woopee


I don’t have a jersey yet, I keep on #SMH for not buying that awesome jersey in Victoria’s Secret during the first month of the NFL Season but yeah…someday! I wore my “touch down” Old Navy shirt instead! Haha



St. Joseph’s Church! 🙂 Where I usually go when I’m not working for brunch or if not with Mr. and Mrs. Angel on a Sunday 🙂


Tikoy to celebrate Chinese New Year! 🙂


Happy Sunday everyone!!! 🙂

Finally! I have the time to finish this entry! 🙂 I am embracing a 12 hour shift until Sunday,so I’ve been spending my time preparing for work, talking to my family and mostly in the kitchen. I missed the cyber-world very much and everything about the Philippines! I have no idea what’s going on in my homeland right now. Like what’s going on with the politics and showbizshizz! Anyway, I am having the “time of my life” at work! Everyone’s VERY accommodating and nice. I have been learning a lot already for the past 3 days and I am just in awe of the training the I am being blessed with! So much for “OFW” (lol) stuff! I’d be posting  blog about my work next time since a lot has been messaging me about it 🙂 Since I’ve been missing my awesome life in Manila a lot lately, I’ve decided to blab about my lunch date with the two of the most caring persons in my life! 02.20.2012 – Opppppa! I met up with Caloy and LA for lunch on a Monday.It’s quite odd that we’re meeting on a work day but it’s for a good cause,why hesitate to call in sick,right LA? Lol :)) I love hanging out in Greenbelt, there are too many reasons why this mall is one of my family’s favorite in the Metro. Someone always arrives very late when we meet up! I don’t know why but time is not really with us every time we set a bonding day. :))

I was the last to arrive so they chose which restaurant to go to. LA was craving for their Flaming Mangoes so they decided to dine in here.

I asked them to order a salad ahead for me. I was already starving and I cannot wait for my food for too long. Lol

Roka Salata

This is now officially on my favorite list! I loved the candied walnuts and arugula together because of the bold nutty flavor. The Greek vinaigrette goes perfectly with the sweet and light flavor of the ingredients. YUM

Spinach Dip

Overloaded with cheese x Served with toasted pita bread & white bread

Caloy’s Cyma Lamb Chops

My Chicken Gyro wrapped in Lettuce (low-carb option)

Cyma’s gyros are really GOOD! I couldn’t explain how much I love their gyro’s! Nothing like the greasy shawarma’s we usually see in the cheap lane 😛

LA’s Lamb Gyro

Flaming Mangoes

LA & Caloy 🙂


We did some shopping after having lunch. Of course Sinfully is on my to-go list when in Greenbelt! That place is divine! 🙂

Macarons..why you so prettttty?

Their Heart’s Day special! Chocolate covered wafers 🙂 Not something that I will be ordering again. This was too ordinary that it’s not too far from “Choco Mallows’ taste and texture…was it just me?


I will really try with all my might to update this blog as often as what I have used to. Seeing the statistics of my page views everyday urges me to blog more! Thank you everyone really! 🙂

Off to work,

R <3
