the best and the worst things

27 Feb

The best

 Finally free. I have an interview with a company this Friday regarding a potential job as a chef. I have no idea what it entails, but yeah. It’s something right?

But then there’s this thing that I’m dealing with…

The worst

I’ve got GERD! Can’t believe it! HERE’s MY LONG MULTIPLY POST ABOUT IT! 

We’re in deep shit. But I will prevail. Malay mo, I’m really all for the chef position in Dasmarinas Cavite pa.

Heny Sison hasn’t called back, bummer. Maybe I’m over-qualified. Hell yes, I’m really overqualified for what they were interviewing me for. Sana dito hindi naman underqualified. Camown!

So what’s been up?

– Chef Joko is no longer a recruiter! Finished massively recruiting for a lot of chefs. And now I’m basically free.

– Basically free but huring because of the GERD. Parusa ito ng langit dahil masyado na akong mataba. I know this.  Hello, and I will be so sexy a few weeks from now.

– Also, I’m very close to being bored, and I can’t even eat the yummy foods I want to make. But this exercise will teach me about healthy eating/cooking even if it kills me. Because literally if I eat unhealthy foods– IT WILL KILL ME. And the pain meds up my arteries, ain’t a happy occurrence.

– Consequently, I should really go entrepreneurial na. I need it. The plant biz didn’t work out as I was veto-ed by the mudra. The cookie job is still going through, so happy that. I should really put up that website already. http://www.cookieplease.com, I do own the domain name.  Too bad I can’t even stomach doing anything with chocolate right now. It’ll be too painful. And then I learned today, I couldn’t have CAKE and CANDY. The horror!

And I want to do this:

  • get a cooking job
  • take that seminar on having my own bakery
  • take that seminar regarding catering
  • get rid of this gerd, seriously.

This is just me turning a new leaf to being healthy. Yun yon eh. Now to just do tons of research on KIDS and what they EAT.

Goodluck.

Oh I miss my acids!

Ps. the pictures of my Cebu trip are in my multiply. I ate a lot, hence I got this GERD thing. Not cool.

Super not cool. Enihoodles. Weh.
