These are perhaps one of the saddest excuses for photos.
Chocolate Truffles, nomnomnom
I made truffles for New Year because:
1. Truffles are delicious and very decadent;
2. Truffles look good on the table;
3. Truffles are round, thus would make perfect additions to any New Year meal.
I’ll probably be giving away more truffles soon, in even better packaging to make them more attractive. A friend of mine had been telling me to sell them, except I am quite shy about doing any business ventures.
I’ll learn how to take better photos next time. At least I know for a fact that while these truffles are badly photographed, they are delicious as sin and has seriously made me very happy making them.
My New Year’s Resolution should then include learning how to photograph these delicious truffles.
and why this job kicks the ass of my previous job.

I have you around too many times these days, I might begin to think I am a very lucky girl.
Kathrina of April 2009 is very different from Kathrina of April 2010. Had I not been laid-off my previous job I would have probably still be doing web content for some pesky company. (It has to be noted that I am not saying anything against writing web content–I still do it these days but that company is a whole other story.)
Kathrina of April 2009 would wake-up at 530 in the morning to be able to get to work at 7am. She would scramble for sleep in the shuttle which takes her to the train; play hopscotch on the train platform in Quezon Avenue; pay for a 45p lunch meal made up of toge and some beef strips; write about the most banal things like lawn mowers or some place she has never heard of or this and that in more than 200 words for web content; pray it’s 4pm so that she can go home or maybe have a few beers with her friends; walk a good fifteen minutes around Ortigas or Cubao to get myself home. Repeat five times a week.
Kathrina of April 2010 would wake up at 830 in the morning to be able to get to work at whatever time she finishes her morning ritual. She would play hopscotch on the train platform in Anonas; Think about work on the train to Santolan; wonder what is for lunch or what the students are cooking for their professional cooking class; research about meteor showers or global star parties or whatever astronomy phenomenon is up and hot these days; write about these things; contact bloggers to eat at the restaurant; write for my other job; play with this awesome 14″ diameter telescope; stay a while longer to eat Steak or tofu; smile all the way home on the jeep which takes me to Cubao.
While repetitions are inevitable, add a few of these things in the routine: attend food tastings, have dinner with the bloggers I have contacted, attend events, organize events, schedule photo shoots, etc, etc. There are days when work ends at midnight, tonight there is the Lyrids Meteor Shower and I am prepared to leave at two in the morning or at four in the morning. I want to see Jupiter and Saturn and those meteors flying across the sky around midnight with that telescope I am talking about.
I want you to know that I have very much of you these days. Sometimes I wake up thinking I am lucky–I might be lucky.
