March 2017: Family and Food

Every month starting March, someone from our family is celebrating their birthday:
  • March: Therese
  • April: Hovey
  • May: Alyanna
  • June: Mom
  • July: Dad
And yes, I am the odd one out since my birthday is all the way in November.

For this month, Therese decided we eat at Earls Kitchen + Bar Restaurant. Since we are excited for dinner, we have been looking at the menu deciding what to get a couple of days before her actual birthday.

Appetizer

For sharing, we had Bacon Mac + Cheese and Crispy Chicken Tenders

Immigrating to a new country is never easy. The culture shock, temperature changes, and being unemployed are just some of the many things one would experience when moving to a new country.

In my case, I immigrated to Canada from Philippines. Not much culture shock since Philippines was heavily influenced by the Americans but the temperature change from hot to cold was something my body still needs adjusting to. The most difficult challenge of all (at least for me) was being unemployed.


I was happy with my career at Philippines. I work with amazing people (hello QSR team!) and I love what I do - training and helping schools use Google Apps in the classroom, is a rewarding thing to do. I am not talking about the monetary reward but more on the fulfillment of working with teachers and their professional growth.


When I arrive in Canada, I was obviously unemployed. It was tough. I was so confident that I'll be able to find work right away but I didn't. I am lucky, though, that my p…

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.
