Sayote causes High Blood :p

Why? Is it because of its composition? Nah. Here’s why.

A husband comes home in the evening after working all day in the garden. Tired and hungry, he asks his wife what’s for dinner.

Husband: Wife, what’s for dinner?
Wife: Sayote.
Husband: What? Sayote again? Sayote in the morning, sayote for lunch and now sayote for dinner?! (in an angry voice).

So that’s why. 😀

It’s just a joke of course, common to sayote farmers. But though it’s just a joke, it’s not far from being a reality (or to some, it has already become a reality hehehe).

Note that when you’re a farmer, it’s basically what you plant is what you eat hehehe. so if you plant sayote, you eat sayote. 😀 Add to it the fact that its market value is not that high. Believe it or not, the price can go for less than P1 per kilo in our place. Now, this is no joke. I remember logging our sayote sales when I was in 2nd year high school. At some point, it went for as low as P0.25 per kilo. Deduct from that the jeepney fare, fertilizers, labor (if you hired someone to clean your garden). And the harvest is not that much too. How much is left? Do the Math. I can’t imagine how we survived those days hehehe. Of course it has its golden days too where prices shoot up. But these days are RARE. Wehehe.

But I still love sayote. I can survive with sayote alone for viand – plain sayote at that – no add-ons, only sauted in oil, with a dash of salt. That’s usually the way we cook it. Because of its low market value, we can’t afford to buy meat to add to it wahaha.

Sayote will always be a part of me. It’s what has been putting food on the table for my family, until now. Take that literally and figuratively. Simply, it’s the source of living for us. And if my stint in the corporate world fails, I would still gladly go back to sayote planting. 🙂

Vision Board

A vison board is an artwork you create where you put pictures of the things you want to do or to have. By doing so, it helps you focus on your goals thus achieving them. Maybe because it’s visual and you get to see it everyday thus you are always reminded of your goals and you are more determined to watch them.
I have watched this on TV a long time ago. I’ve also read it in some magazine. Last month, my friend mentioned that she has one. I wanted to have one for the longest time but never came to doing it hehehe. I only was able to buy a corkboard and some pins ahihi. Talk about procrastination. Amp. Now that I’m reminded of it, I’d like to do it. At least I already have a list of the things I want to have so that would be quicker. 😀

Gusto kong…

Gusto kong matutong magdrive.
At gusto ko na rin ng sasakyan.
Gusto kong magroadtrip kahit saan, kahit anong oras na libre ako.
At habang naglalakbay, tumutugtog ang aking mga paboritong kanta.
Gusto ko…

Kailan kaya matutupad ang pangarap na ito?

Pangarap ka na lang ba? O magiging katotohanan na?

Hay.

😀

Sakit

Nagbabadya na naman ang aking karaniwang sakit. Inisip ko lang kanina na baka pagod lang ako kasi puro meetings ako sa halos buong shift ko. pero hanggang ngayon, mabigat ang pakiramdam ko. Ganito lagi nararamdaman ko pag nagkakasakit ako ng todo at para akong lantang gulay. Masakit ang muscles ko. Feeling ko kanina sa office pa lang parang namamaga ang mukha ko. Pagdating ko sa bahay, salamin agad hinarap ko. Buti na lang normal naman. Pakiramdam ko lang yun. At hanggang ngayon nahihirapan akong makatulog. Mas lalo ko tuloy nararamdaman
ang sakit.

Ano ba naman ‘to. Totoo bang kung ano ang nangyari sa unang araw ng Bagong Taon, ganon na the whole year? Huwag naman sana pero naman kasi, first day of the year, may sakit ako at umulit na ng kung ilang beses at nagpapang-abot pa ang mga ito. Hindi pa ako gumagaling sa una, nagkakasakit na naman ako. Nakapagpacheck-up na nga eh. Binigyan na rin ng gamot. Pero wala pa rin. Anong gagawin ko?

Teka, anong sakit nga ba? Sa ngayon, symptoms ng lagnat nararamdaman ko. Mainit na katawan ko kanina pa. Kakairita nga eh. It’s all in the mind lang ba? Sa akin hindi. Ganito talaga pakiramdam ko pag magkakasakit ako.

Ayaw ko pa naman maggamot. Feeling ko kasi, sa kung ilang beses na akong nagkasakit mula last year, sobra-sobra na yung mga nainom kong gamot. Ayaw ko nang dagdagan pa. Kaya iwas gamot muna. Pero nasaan na ba ang mga gamot ko? Just in case lang hindi ko na talaga kaya. 😀

Minsan

Minsan sa ating buhay, may mga bagay na akala natin, ok lang na hindi na nangyayari pero pag nangyari uli ito, don natin mapagtatanto na nakakamiss din pala. Pero hindi rin naman ibig sabihin na gusto mong ibalik ang dati. Kadalasan, mapapangiti ka na lang sa alaala ng kahapon hehehe.

PERO…

May mga ibang bagay din na dinadasal mo na sana yumabong pa at sana hindi matatapos ng basta-basta na lang at sana may patutunguhan naman.

*****
Wahaha! Me ganun?
Oo meron, may namiss lang kasi ako. 😀
