Turning in a resignation letter is never easy.  From the word “resign” refering to the formal act of giving up or quitting.  For my part, it’s quitting my current position.

I am no quitter.  But I know when to pursue some thing and when to let myself go.  I’m still apprehensive about my future (again) but I hope I can make use of my time in other things aside from applying in different companies.

Unemployment, here I come!

Food Trip: Rego’s Pasta Express


(I should’ve posted this a few months back – February 24 to be exact – but just got overlapped with a couple of things.  Anyway, here’s my first dining experience at REGO’S PASTA EXPRESS).

I’ve been reading a lot about places in Davao for new dining experiences.  And while I was at Riley Simon’s last week, I thought about exploring the general area of Arellano street just to have a personal look.  As luck would have it, however, my directional capabilities seem to have jammed up instead of cooperating.  Thus, putting a halt to my adventure.

However, last Monday, I took the opportunity in gathering the info I needed when I was given access online.  When clocking out came, I invited a friend of mine to accompany me to our destination: REGO’S PASTA EXPRESS.

The place was big enough to house a party of 16 to 20 guests (my estimation).

My friend and I placed our orders of:

Rosie’s Salatta

Being true to my word to eat healthy, I ordered Rosie’s Salatta (the salad from the Leafy Green Things menu having the greatest raves over the blogsphere).

Grilled Pork Chops

My friend ordered Grilled Porkchops, and I ordered a serving of pasta (I forgot what it was).

Pasta (Gambas.. I think) I forgot!

The servings were quite generous.  The taste?  Delicious!  Thumbs up for another new place to dine with my friends.

 

It’s Okay…


I’ve made mistakes.  No matter how much I avoid committing mistakes or having lapses, it’s one of the things that always haunt me in my work life.

I guess I’m really not cut out for the corporate scene.  It’s such a cutthroat world for me.  Ideas denied, principles threatened, emotional stability shaken.  I guess I’m too AWARE of the things around me that I also over-think things.  Yes I know I’m not making sense but I have a thing about sharing what bothers me in full detail.  I prefer thinking about it to myself before I’m actually ready to share it.

Anyway, I’m once again at a limbo.  Like I said, I made a mistake.  A lapse, an error.  I apologized, explained my side and was willing to accept what sanctioned reprimand they were ready to throw at me.  More than less I knew how this SHOULD have played out.  Unfortunately, compared to a corporation, family-owned businesses tend to have a different train of thought.

SIGH.

So I’m at a standstill once again.  But, I’m not too worried for myself… YET.  I have accepted my mistake.  And although I wish things would have been handled more fairly, it wasn’t my call anymore.

I need to pave a different career path.  Find my bliss and explore the many possibilities open for me.

For now, my power up song is: It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay by Whitney Houston (and sung by the Glee Cast).  How my case was handled was not right, but I’m okay about it.

Food Trip: Ice Giants


There’s a new (relatively) place for me that I’m enjoying as a snack place.  ICE GIANTS!  It has been operating for a few years in the city but it was only this month that I was able to try out the place (for a couple of times).  I wasn’t able to try it out when I was in Manila during 2006 – 2007.  But that’s okay.  The good thing is I get to experience it in my own hometown.

So I’m sharing with you a couple of pictures I took on the orders I made:

Ice Giants!

Halo-halo! (my first visit order)

Lasagna! (another first visit order)

A platter of Tortillas (still from my first visit)

The Hungarian Sausage (2nd visit)

Cheesy Mushroom Burger (I think. Still from my 2nd visit! But my friend’s order)

The Berry Blast (2nd visit)

The whole ensemble of my 2nd visit

Can I just say that I LOVE their ice creations and their food in general!  I like the fact that I can share my platter of tortillas with my friends without feeling that everyone won’t get their fill.  Their halo-halo is just divine!  I long to create a perfectly iced halo-halo for my own business.  One that one come close to their servings!  Their berry blast specialty was a bit too sweet for me but, if shared with someone, it would be both economical and beneficial.  The hungarian sausage was what I expected.  Fully loaded and very hot (for my tastebuds that is).

What I love about Ice Giants is that it’s an ice cream parlor that you and your family and friends could go to and hang out and enjoy the good food.  I am especially looking forward to trying out their 3 kilo ice concoctions!

There are currently 3 Ice Giants Branches here in Davao City.  One in Damosa IT Park; the second one is at Sta. Ana Ave. (along Davao Central High School); and the third branch is at Quimpo Boulevard highway (along the intersection of Q. Boulevard and Sandawa).
