Job Hunting Blues

Last Friday, the personnel department over at a European outsourcing firm called and invited me for a job interview. Seeing this as an opportunity to once again put my mettle to the test, I accepted to be scheduled for Wednesday, yesterday.

Whew, am I getting rusty... sometimes the pressure of taking job exams just gets to you when you've never done it for a while. I was sloppy enough to botch up two problems and miss 3 questions out of 20 in the multiple choice test. But, nevertheless, it was a good experience and I'll do it again tomorrow if need be. Just to sharpen up things!

I just realized that I already spent a year here in manila just last July 21. It's amazing how time can just fly by. I've already made a lot of new friends and got reacquainted with some old ones, reestablished rapport with my brods, celebrated my birthday in the middle of a typhoon, broke some hearts and in turn had my own broken, went to Subic twice, finished a few projects and gained a raise, relocated to a new home, established contact with some relatives, sang in my friend's wedding, saw Transformers(!), etc...and missed everything back home. I miss my dogs, my friends, my family and everything that's Davao City. Nonetheless, I had lots of fun here and I'm looking forward to lots more this year!

Recipe from Hell

The Vermicelli from Hell

Hello. In a flash of inspiration or a fit of madness, I invented the following recipe which I call the Vermicelli from Hell. Exactly why I made it, maybe too much alcohol in my system or too many of those Thundarr the Barbarian reruns, I don't remember. But, I clearly recall the hellishly engineered taste and it caused me nightmares for weeks after. For those stupid enough to try, here it is. Remember that altering the basic ingredients might spoil(!) the taste so be forewarned.

1 can (155 g) canned tuna, spicy (I used Century tuna)
1 can squid adobo (I recommend Saba brand)
1/2 can button mushrooms, sliced. (Use SM bonus for that extra large mutated look)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 bulb onion, diced
4 red chili pepper (siling labuyo), crushed
1 pack vermicelli (bihon) noodles
1 tablespoon used oil
1 dash salt
1 pinch sugar
fish sauce (patis)
4 cups water

Sautee the onion and garlic in the used oil in a wok. Add the tuna and heat up for a little while, then add the water and the noodles. Cover up for about 4 minutes then add the salt, sugar and patis (to taste!). Throw in the siling labuyo and canned squid (don't slice the squid). Cook until it gains that hellish aroma. Serves 20 or more.

Write a suicide note before tasting or, you can wring your hands in the air and shout, "It's alive!" Then serve your unsuspecting enemies.

Baybayin Transliterator

I simplified the design, making it accept f as letter p, v as b, and c as k. I know this is not proper but I am lazy and you can just ignore them if you don't want them.
