2016 is MY YEAR!

Dear 2015,

I thank God He gave me you and let me experience a different curve of life. Thank you for such a wonderful year. For all the people I met and encountered, for those who left and for those who stayed. You let me try things I never thought I would ever experience. Took me to places I never imagine I'd be. Thank you for every new milestone of 2015, the new career in the beginning, the marathon that I took, country I've been to and all other blessings I got.

Now that you are about to leave, kindly bring with you all the heart pains, trials and burdens you have given me. Take them away as you fade. I'm ready for another set next year. I know I'll do better because 2015, you thought me to be good in facing them.

I sincerely am sorry of all bad things I've done to my fellows. I ask forgiveness to all my shortcomings and misunderstandings we had. I also would like to say sorry for myself, for being too harsh to my health and sometimes lossing my love for my self. Forgetting that I am a son of God and I am created in His likeness.

As a promise, I will carry with me all the life lessons you impart. Good things and good deeds will surely be continued in the next coming years. Self improvement and growth will always be part of next year's goal. Savings and investments are priority. Most specially to live each day like winners do. Winner who knows how to properly acknowledge winning and recognize his defeat. A winner who pushes himself to be better each day.

Again, to my dearest 2015, Thank you so much!

Greatful,
Mark Respicio Antonio

PS.
Dear 2016,

YOU ARE MY YEAR!

Merry Christmas 2015


All this years, I kept wondering how ham balls are cooked... Everytime I see advertisements of Ham during Christmas season, I wonder how do they serve it beautifully.

When I was young, wre use to cut it first then fry each slice. I have also tried deep frying the whole and cut afterwards.

This year, what I did was just thaw it until freezing is gone and fry it on low fire. Then serve the whole ball and slice whenever you want to ear. Perfect and almost got my ambitious attempt to mimic those ham advertisements.
