A Lonely Man's Supper

It’s supposed to be summer here already, but it’s still cold outside. Not my favorite weather, as I have always said.

But I’m hungry. My not-so-pampered stomach achingly pleaded for food. My mind tried to reconsider, and deliberated on just running to the curry house just a few blocks away. But my stubborn legs won’t cooperate.

Legs won. No choice, I’d have to find dinner in my place. But with no ref at home, there’s really nothing much I could munch on. There still is instant noodles hanging in the cupboard, but I’ve already had one this morning. Not healthy.

After much searching, I finally whooped up dinner. This...




.... oatmeal and Ligo Sardines.

Pretty usual food for me. But I don’t know why, as I ate, this quote from someone just popped in: “buti pa ang sardinas, kahit nasa lata, me kasama.”
And for some reason, I got a affected. Now let me take one deep breath and sigh ....

Konting tiis lang. Bukas, may mga kasama ka na.....sa opis. Hehehe.

Di ko alam paano ka i-cheer up eh. Di ko naman pwedeng sabihin sana sardinas ka na lang.

Di bale, pag-uwi mo, ako ulit taya sa inuman. :D

LOL@Abaniko's comment- ".....sana sardinas ka na lang."


You really need someone to take care of you and feed you , Reo. Hay, naku, saan na kasi ang secret admirer mo..??

You should get even just a little fridge (bar fridge)and stock up on food. Your Nanay will really worry if she reads this one.

Ian: Arm-twisting ka dyan. Nway, madami-daming kape ito kung sakali. :-)

Abaniko: Yup, bawi sa kalungkutan pag-uwi. Hay, salamat. Akala ko KKB na naman. :-)

Gina: Ang mahal kasi ng appliances dito. E di naman ako magtatagal kaya nakakapang-hinayang. You're right. My Nanay's gonna get worried if she reads this. Buti na lang di siya marunong mag internet. heheh
