My first weekend going back to Marikina after starting my second job in Pasay was full of — REST. I’ve spent the whole Saturday afternoon lying down and lazily playing with my nephew, niece, dogs and cat. I have also moved my usual Sunday activities with JB on a Saturday, because I should be going back to Makati after early dinner on Sunday to prepare for Monday. I also managed to take pictures of some of the things I will be listing on Ebay.com, using Mama’s newly painted wall by the kitchen. While taking the pictures, I’ve heard the balut vendor pass in front of our house, and we had to rush outside just in time before he turned the corner.
I can’t remember when was the last time I have eaten balut, but I definitely can’t forget that one time in 1996, when I was too obsessed with it and devoured three eggs in one sitting. I eventually ended up with a headache the whole weekend. LOL I am not too fond directly looking at what was inside the shell, so my strategy was just to look at it cross-eyed as I sprinkle a pinch of salt on it.
