It's been an awesome journey! In all honesty, I don't think I would have lost any weight had I not gone to Singapore for work. Living in Manila was too convenient for me. Driving is a huge factor, and the kind of work available (which was mostly SAP Basis SUPPORT) was the one that required shifting. Also add to that how my mom is not really fond of cooking for two (just her and me) so we mostly had take out dinners. Not really Jollibee or McDonalds, but I think if I remember correctly, she mostly bought take out from North Park, Gloria Maris (The Block), the japanese restaurants in Trinoma.
I have no qualms against Jollibee or Mcdonalds, but I told my mom since she used to (frequently) buy our dog takeout from those restaurants, that I'd like to have something else the dog was not having. Eventually though she toned it down and started buying our dog takeout from St. Pedro or the other Baliwag/Andoks-like franchise. She just buys from Jollibee or Mcdo for special occasions for our dog who I got the honor of naming Tonton (but my mom started calling him Tonsky).
Let's start it off with July 2010 ...
