Intermission: (Some) Thoughts Running through My Head
(That’s lyrics to a song, isn’t it?
With a little Googling action, we find out: Yes, it is a line from ‘Angel’ by Robbie Williams. \m/)
While my mind’s always busy thinking about a variety of stuff (some days, to a point where I couldn’t sleep a wink =b), it churned overtime with typhoon Ineng in the Philippines. (I do hope you all are doing a-okay, my foodie friends. (“,) )
At the time we had no electricity, I concentrated more on hoping that our roof wouldn’t fly off with the next blast of wind that slams into the side of our house. For the typhoon’s second day, I almost started biting my nails in worry that my sister was still on the road to Baguio from Isabela.
With power restored (BIG, BIG THANKS to the people at BENECO who did/are doing their utmost to get power restored to the whole city! With all the damage that the storm left in its wake, these guys must have their hands full), I quickly tried to search for details on the roads going to Baguio. Unfortunately, the internet was wonky at that time … but with electricity, I was less scared of the wind and the rain; so grateful to you guys working in the blustery weather, away from the comfort of home, risking your lives, BENECO. ^^,
When finally, I was connected to the World Wide Web again, I found information on Facebook that there’ve been landslides in this or or that road. Even more bothered now that one of those roads was the Baguio-Vizcaya Road, I breathed a huge sigh of relief seeing my sister walk through our gate. Shyeew. (BIG, BIG THANKS too, to DPWH Benguet!)
Boy are we glad, that typhoon is gone. #happydance
In other ‘news’ on what I’ve been chewing on recently, being on house arrest in the inclement weather, I wished I was truly chewing on: Noodle King‘s salad and noodle offering, Axes‘ shantong soup, Rose‘s mami, etc., etc. *drool
I realized also that the blog’s anniversary is coming up in a month. (Whoa!) Hhhmm, how to celebrate it, what giveaway to host? On the other side of the fence, I’m beginning to feel a certain ennui for this blogging thing and am considering closing up shop. Cue Things that Make You Go Hhmmm by C+C Music Factory.
Here’s hoping that this feeling will pass just like the typhoons that pass through the country. Meanwhile, I’ll work on rekindling my interest in writing entries for this online diary about my eatsplorations by binge watching my first real favorite food TV show, Good Eats with Chef Alton Brown. (Super reminiscing mode from conversations with Ela and Paolo *snickers)
For the time being, if you have any suggestion for the blog’s third year anniversary giveaway, I’d love to hear it. Please leave a comment under this blogpost or send a message through the blog’s FB page. =)
