My Grandmother’s Original Homemade Brownies in Koronadal City

2B223FE1-E594-4ED7-8DFB-E78CD6C12FA7     This is the photo of the actual brownies my brother made last March. Baked from my Grandmother’s Brownie Recipe from her teaching years. She’s a TLE teacher in the Philippines while being a mom to her grandchildren.

Celebrations among family is common, and because of that food is always present so as the visitors. Many say “your brownies is extremely good especially because it’s not too sweet”. Some even mentioned that our family must venture out for Brownie business.

More than a decade of serving our brownies we didn’t thought about giving it a go just to try.

It’s a matter of time my brother suggested baking some for a photoshoot so that people in social media can appreciate. Below are some of my Grandmother’s or I may say Sef’s Original Homemade Brownies photos.

This is now a level up version of my brother for he added more chocolates leaving the taste not to sweet which is perfect for everybody.

Changing your game

When you change your game for the better, it must sound parallel to what you’re expecting. Though it might be more difficult this time around at least you got your time to manage. If you hook up with a big company and stayed for their 8 hours job offer everyday sticking your butt for the same hours on your not so favorite and comfy chair, these things won’t work for you.

Hey, I’m Nicole and I hooked up with a big online e-commerce from Sept 2017 to January 2018. Not actually my dream job but the pay is reasonable compared to what my profession has to offer here in my country. All I do on weekdays is to sit and live up to their expectations and create. Well, in the first phase it’s all good and that but we cannot defy circumstances especially emergencies at home. It leads me to give up the job and resigned.

It’s not all on the spot you know, it’s planned and such but I didn’t realize that I’ll be caught up on the same matter after that. My next client was one of my old bosses. I’m happy knowing I’m familiar with him a little bit.

What happened was, he asked for a certain type of format for his “own” company he said. I manage to create versions and adjustments for him yet he didn’t stick to his promise of reviewing the end product what he did was say sorry because we had a meeting about the project if it’s a go or not. Take note he told me that’s his company why to delay our transaction because of some I don’t care and I don’t care about matters.

He’s away on Skype for a week and didn’t give me updates on his whereabouts. He left me unanswered and hopeless for the project. What’s awful is that he asked for another day or two to make up his mind. I agreed so as to feel I’m humble enough to wait, what I didn’t understand is that he’s asking for revisions again. Oh C’mon get yourself together!

I’m a freelancer but it doesn’t mean you can abuse my skills and time. Maybe because of the familiarity he decided to take me for granted. But not that time. I’m no up to no good anymore.

What I said was I’m sorry I can’t do it anymore.

What I really wanted to say was: WTH, I don’t need your money wasting my precious time asking for another week to mess with me. The F.

That’s all. Hahahaha

All I wanted to say is that make up your mind and say no to the things that you don’t want to do and don’t live up to your employers all likers and requests if you don’t get the same feeling of success. Stand up for what you love and what can make you feel alive.

“Our” not so private life

Unveiled is the truth about our transparency whether in Social Media or even in our personal life. It can be our daily activities, feelings or opinions about certain topic/matter. Aside from our daily mantra, we tend to butt into other people’s ideas and whereabouts. I know you know this for sure because this is the type of life we live right now. Surely, millennials can deeply relate to this and I myself as part of this millennial idea is free to express myself just like what freedom means to all of us. But, there’s this thing we called “privacy” that is bugging me. Why? Because I think the word itself is uncertain, means it doesn’t have its standard limitations per person.

This term is widely requested by the most of us especially introverts and people who believe that their life stories are not for show or not for sale to the eyes and ears of the many.  The problem is to what extent would you like yourself socially be heard and seen by the media/people? How limited is the word “PRIVACY” for you? Does your environment respect what you imply?

Share your thoughts.

THE Next STEP, does it really matter?

Taking the next step is very important in whatever circumstances and paths of life, you’ll come to that point where you’re compelled to choose the next big thing you’ll be doing in order to give your life a sense of direction.

If you’re a dreamer you need to understand this mechanism. It may not be simple as simple as choosing what kind of fruit you’ll be having today but it’s of utmost importance that you know the risks of doing so. It’s the same with the deciding what to do after you’ve been consumed and bored with what you suddenly left behind.

With the so many drafts you’ve tried to fathom why surprisingly stacked in the Drafts section of your Web Blog – weekly giving yourself a chance to move on and go on to the next flow. It doesn’t seem to fit all walks of life. Even with the motivation, you’re capable of following your daily grind is not there anymore.

So, we’re left with what’s laid in front of us and from there, as the origin of our Dreamy Success stand up and grind. All I wanna say is that what you got in you is what you are! If you’re capable of working as a professional you can look for a job and start again or if you’re an artist of any type you can design from there also.

Take it or leave it, skipping the drama in between all of ups and downs in life is just a part of it. The bitterness and slow progression are all depending on how you handle yourself in the process. Life is always risky in a different level of difficulty but we need to just go on with it in order to achieve our aspirations in life if that so, Strive!

Growing Universe

I’m a Virtual Assistance for an E-commerce store within the Web World. It didn’t occur to me before that it was possible until it’s done. All I keep in my mind is that I needed to land this kind of job this kind of pay to be able to move along with my life. It has been a lifetime of frustrations of pain and adventures but one thing is literally for sure, I’m keeping my faith and my fate in this battle of life.

How come I know?

Amidst of the lack of motivations sometimes I tend to create a prison of thoughts in my mind leading my ideas and feelings shattered all at once without the certainty of someone to back you up everytime you fall. This is the good thing about being “Hopeful” in many languages hope is confusing, Hope is uncertain and sometimes Hope is a lost soul wandering for an escape.

 

I love the way opportunities that came as a blessing blessed my way. This for sure prevents me from keeping the itsy bitsy problems that I keep on having since then. I don’t keep the promise that I make because of being selfish. I didn’t imagine life as good as for the others even so I’ came from a good line of names, just names, alone it can not guarantee your soul for a place in this mad world.

Do struggle to survive, this is my motivational phrase right now. Having good ol friends and special people in your life were all just an added bonus. This vast growing questions within the world and within us are all answerable with what we give a damn about it.

You matter and life matters.

Grow and stay curious. Stop the hate and Keep moving forward my friend. You are special and you can do it!

 

Pick #29 Elements of “a perfect day”

capture-20170912-113652

We all know that there’s no perfect thing in this world, including humans. Anything, anyone is flawed in our ways. But here comes the “ideas” of the perfect day. It’s from our self-perspective, I mean I myself have different factors for a day to be labeled as a perfect day, so as my dog. As a typical being who only in nature wanted his day to perfect basing it to his definition of a “Perfect Day”.

Now it’s my day to share with you what consists my elements of a perfect day. I’m a list them down for you readers:

  1. Coffee in the morning –  First things first. Coffee has an important role in everyday’s life, I mean the different preparation and presentation of coffee are widely appreciated by the people and I myself have been a lover since my College days of busy studying.   “She’s like cold coffee in the morning” –  Cold Coffee | Ed Sheeran
  2. Greetings from Loved Ones  – Good morning messages even evening is happiness for me. Friends, Family, and relatives sending me random messages in a day even just a single one will make my day complete.
  3. Complete Meal – When I say complete meal, it means that in a day I’ll be satisfied with just one complete breakfast and light meals in lunch and dinner. I’m in my diet mode actually so I have this set of goals. *laughs
  4. Realizing how blessed you are – On a daily basis, we do thank God for the good thing s and even the bad things that he gave to us, to experience and to challenge. Along with these, we are also showered with another day to spend with our Families and our ability to work again for our clients or to have a good cup of coffee with our friends.
  5. Ended your day with a smile and a prayer – As a Freelancer, I manage my time making it possible for me to sleep even for just 4-6 hours in a day. Making my self-available for prospects it can be viewing job offers and entertaining proposals.
  6. Gym time – Last month I decided to enroll in a gym and now I decided to extend another month so that I’ll continue losing some kilograms.
  7. A day in the Arcade – I remember way back when I was just a little fellow I’m very fond of playing outdoor games with my playmates as well as indoor on arcades. Yet in today’s generation, the love for Arcades is still hyped as same before despite the progression of the number of kids population who are into online games with the use of smartphones and high-end gadgets. This is always gonna be a part of my life and as soon as it is included in my day, it’s gonna be as perfect as having a cup of hot coffee in a cold weather.
  8. A blog post – this is something I really love doing for years now. It’s not limited to sharing words, stories alone but sharing artworks and photographs are also considered to be a blog post for me. A doodle a day keeps my energy ecstatic and driven. Being an artist in our own special and simple ways creates unique elements in our stories. Keeping the creativity in everyday grind

A combination of 3 or more listed above will just be fine for me.

How about you? What makes your day perfect? – wordsmelt

So, here I am again brainstorming on what specific blog post to share with you guys. Actually, I’ve been busy lately illustrating, designing for clients with my Freelancing career and I never thought of getting back to writing and blogging again but here I am facing my laptop on a Monday Morning. For a usual and expert blogger, they don’t really mind thinking of ideas what to post on a daily basis because their life, friends, family, clients, food, money, travel stories are enough topics to generate new blog ideas to post.

Well, for me, I really don’t have the variety of transactions made in just a day.  For a self-taught web graphic artist like me, it’s possible to have those “nothing to do at the moment” and absorbing the chill pill dimension, just for now. Well, just for the record I’m not a professional graphic designer hence I’m a Professional Registered Medical Technologist if you want to know few facts about me CLICK HERE 

Meanwhile, I did this post to let you know that I’ll start blogging again with the help of a blogger’s 100 ideas on what to post on a blog site. Generating a random number from 1-50 to start getting my Blogging life back. So it’s no. 29 and this excites me.

Keep posted for my #29 random pick blog post idea.

If you have blog ideas suggestions, feel free to comment and thank you for reading!

Good Monday Morning! Always be safe – wordsmelt
