Jackie’s Food Hub

I’m all support for a dear friend’s business venture. I have seen how she has diligently planned for this to come true.

People from the North, let me inform you that Jackie’s Food Hub has opened its first 2 food carts at Howmart Road, Brgy. Apolonio Samson. My friend Yang and her partner had their dreams slowly turn to reality.

Jackie’s Food Hub offers Sisig, Lechon Kawali and Nachos for only Php50. Japanese siomai and pork siomai is also available at a very affordable price. Yang also offers her very own, home-made condiments such as shrimp paste, Chili paste, Garlic oil, Ginger oil, Pickled chili, and Pinakurat (Spiced Vinegar). All these products and her biz itself is of course, DTI registered.

Pork Sisig and Nachos was a hit at yesterday’s launch. Soon, few more food cart “branches” will open in the nearby areas.

I am but a proud friend. Who would not keep going if your mere presence is much appreciated by her very own granddaughter, Mica? Mica has always been Yang’s inspiration and so as her blessing. I am sure Yang will succeed in this business venture.

Pinterest Bids Farewell to its LIKE Button

Giving emphasis on the “Save” button, Pinterest has decided to remove its “Like” button. For some accounts, this has already been implemented and will soon roll out to the rest of the Pinterest users.

“The No. 1 challenge is getting people to understand that Pinterest isn’t a social network,” CEO Ben Silbermann told Bloomberg.

So, what happens to those beautiful pins you have liked?

Pinterest will save the pins users liked on a separate, secret board called “Your Pinterest Likes”.

At least, those pins you liked and have not decided to save yet are still saved for you to easily go back and refer to when needed.  Should you desire to save the ones you have liked, it can easily be moved to your existing public boards.

Take The Civil Service Exam This October

Are you someone who wants to serve the government and be part of Duterte administration?

Are you someone who already took but failed the Civil Service exam in the past?

Are you 18 years old and above?

If you are anyone of the above, then it is your chance to take part of the nationwide Career Service examination, Paper-and-Pencil (CSE-PPT) on October 23, 2016. An announcement has been posted since last year. A cousin of mine took and passed the exam scheduled last  April, 2016. With that, I am interested in trying it again, for the second time. It felt bad to have failed and realized you are just a percentile away from the passing score.

Application form can be downloaded from the CSC website. Deadline of application is on September 1, 2016. For other qualifications and information, check out the Career Service Examination announcement here.

 

The LIFE That You Want

 

 

We all go through a phase in life where you are wanting something you cannot really name or have a hard time determining what. Then you hear and read words that are not really in the encouragement category and may not really be pointed or thrown at you but affects you so much and breaks your heart a lot more. That confusing feeling that somehow stresses you out because it keeps bothering you day and night. Then this confusion causes depression and then makes you feel that you have become a little crazy that you find yourself crying over the littlest of things. Well, we all are, crazy. At some point, end of last year and early this year, I somehow have gone through this phase. I think I have been coward to go for what I really want for a long time. It doesn’t mean that I opted for something I do not want and something that is not right though. It just came to a point that I came to realize that there is a gap within me – a blank space I needed to fill in with something beautiful maybe. Something happy. Something warm. Something brighter. And that something will sure allow me to go further, fulfill dreams and help me a lot to become the better version of what I opted to do and be at the past and of course, be the best version of me for the future. And at the end of it all, this big step I took is not really about me after all… but for the people I love most. We are all like plants that needed water and sunlight to be at our best and give either fruit or flowers to the people around us. Sometimes you (the plant) can even give both flowers and fruits, and even more.

I came to realize that this quote/phrase from Eckhart Tolle  I have read sometime ago is indeed true. I would like to share it with you too.

wanting-to-be-there-eckhart-tolle-picture-quote

 

There are times that stress is also cause by not “wanting to be there” but also by over thinking. By being so negative by some thing or someone new to you even if you have not given it a try or chance to prove its worth.

LIFE is a battle for some, a game of gamble for some and even like a wheel of fortune for others. No matter how you look at it, no matter how you go with the flow, no matter how take it…we all are going for the life that we want.
