Yes, I always log-on to Facebook. I don’t know if I am an oversharer or not. (Denial!) I like posting photos and other interesting things that I fancy. No, I do not rant on Facebook. That is what my family is for. (They are my sounding board. hahaha).
January was like a blur. I had a full schedule that I did not have time to have a meaningful reflection of what happened. February schedule was lighter so here I am at the end of the month trying to makes sense of my February. 😀
After all the work I did last January, I relaxed a little that I noticed that I have these on my table. Different people have brought me gifts from their trips (Well, except for Yoda. I folded that.) These are my work buddies. I should find something Filipino to add to my collection.
All the work in January left me with so much laundry. No, I do not hang my dirty laundry in public. (Corny. I have to rub that in.) The hardworking laundry woman (that’s me) needed some energy booster. And for less that P25, I found the combination of pineapple pie, donut, coffee+ milo+marshmallow very, very filling.
A few days later, I got my Risa Chocolates loot. My friend is a Chocolate Passion Officer of Risa Chocolates and when she shared that there is a 20% discount offered through multiply.com, I quickly grabbed the opportunity. I felt I deserve this splurge for working hard. (haha excuses!). Risa Chocolate is not your regular store-bought chocolate. These are premium chocolates made with passion. Read about them here. (And, no, I was not paid to write this down. In fact, I paid for my chocolates so I am not sharing. Hehe) Like them on Facebook.
A big deal in February is Valentine’s day. Who said I did not have a date? I did and it was a she pero tinulugan ako! LOL
I cooked Valentine’s dinner for the family. For P380, I was able to feed 5 people.
When my cousin saw the photo, he could not believe this only costs P380. Well, it can be done. So let me share the breakdown of expenses.
One Sunday, we had lunch in my uncle’s place and we picked some flowers for the altar (upper right). I snapped photos of gumamela and santan.
There were guavas, too. We brought some home. We can’t resist so we ate one along the way.
I was busy during the third week of February with some projects that I rewarded myself Nutella smores.
I stayed indoors for the past week because of rain. For four days, this is how our street looks like.
See the dry area on the foreground? At least we have an exit along that road. The flood is only a few inches high in the street. Our house is dry.
So, how’s your February?
I think my husband is guilty of oversharing on Facebook. Over kase naman tlaga!=) Anyway, Loved all the pics with vibrant colors! Keep it up!
I love the Valentine’s dinner and the flowers!
My February was my time for work!… too many projects but all in the planning stage yet! I am waiting for it to be implemented!!!
GUAVAS!!! Yummy! Sawsaw with salt, delicious. We have santan in front of our gate back home too. My husband was so amazed when he saw one. They don’t have those in their countries kasi.
Lots of pretty pictures in this post. I love your Valentine’s dinner … nakakagutom.
I missed eating guava. I have a busy and lovely February. I am looking forward to March because it’s Daddy’s birth month and because of the holy week, which means a can rest a little from work and finally start my new project.
Feburary was a very busy month for us too.. did a recap post earlier on this week. Love the shots you took of the flowers.
I love how chic the chocolate packaging is! And your Valentines dinner looks so yummy!
i have to admit i couldn’t believe the dinner only cost you p380. well done!
i’m not an oversharer on fb but on twitter. haha. You’re feb life is so cool. 🙂 Also, do you have a recipe of that korean pork bbq? that’s my fave and I don’t even know how to cook it. Help! ^^
I missed picking guavas fresh from the trees. We used to climb trees before with my cousins and eat them while having rest on roof top.
I can’t believe that’s P380 too. The food looks like prepared in a resto. Oh, my February turned into sick month. hahaha Hubby and I was sick. I had a dyspepsia while he has UTI.
Hope march will be a better month for you, health-wise.
Ok.. yum! I loved the steak and the corn photo! It made me crave for some burger. Yikes!hahah
Fine guavas you got in there! Love it! So healthy and yummy!
Wow…so many things happened in your February. Like them, I also like the Valentine dinner. Even looks presentable for an affordable price. Amazing!
I love all your pics Sis!
I am now inspired to create more tipid dinners. 😀
Nakakagutom ang Valentine’s dinner! It’s 8 am Sunday and I haven’t had breakfast yet. My tummy is grumbling na. Love guava. I remember climbing trees and picking when I was little.
there’s a lot of food here…i like the guavas, very fresh and looks delicious
i also could not believe that those food you cook only cost you 380 for 5 people? galing kang magbudget !
Haha. I was on tipid-mode yet I don’t want sulk about Valentine’s day. 😀
I enjoyed going through your post because of all the food. :)) I will definitely check out Risa Chocolate.
I have yet to try their truffles.
Good round-up, sis! 😀 Well, my February was a flurry of business trips. Kapagod! But I can’t get over that P380 budget for 5 people. That was a good one! hahaha
One medallion of pork kasim is enough. We did even finishe the spaghetti so we have enough room for dessert. 😀
Seriously, I find joy in your coffee, pineapple and donut treat! I am so like that too! Ang sarap niyan!
I love cheap thrills.
Thank you for talking about Risa chocolates, I read her story. Very inspiring. Gusto kong gumaya. Hanggang ngayon di ko pa nahahanap ang true passion ko. I am still stuck. hehe.
That was a nice roundup post Kat. Naalala ko tuloy that I haven’t done mine yet. Hmm…
Oh! Me, too! I want to have my own business selling products I am passionate about.
Looking forward to read your post. 😀
My February was not that good but was able to survive it. Wow sis I missed eating guava katulad nyan na as in kinakagat, hindi pa ako pwede nyan because of my braces 🙁 sad 🙁
Di bale. You’ll have perfect teeth in no time. 😀
Sarap naman ng guava! Pahingi. Seriously, they look sooo yummy. Love your pics and their bursts of color
You have a very busy and productive month. Hope March brings you plenty of cheer. Love those chocolates.. Yummy.
Oh. March is pretty challenging too. I can”t wait for holy week.
Nice! I love the food! I hope I can do that too.. however buti na lang hindi bumabaha dito samin wag naman sana

I love making smores too! 🙂 That merienda looks so delicious ha. It’s surprisingly cheap.
love your chocolates, penge…haha
nice photos! i love random post 🙂 does risa chocolates taste good?
It is good! I may not be a good choco reviewer. I love anything chocolatey. I want to try their truffles. I heard those were the bestsellers.
I tend to overshare on FB when I am in a sad mood or annoyed mood haha. I wrote pa naman an article about How It Is Not Cool to Spread Online Bad Vibes. haha
Uy, smores. I wish I can have that all-day, everyday.
