I started my classes last Monday and boy that was interesting. I met my first instructor and he is Chef Hicham a Moroccan decent. He is very strict with attendance but I feel that I will learn a lot from him. He taught the subject The professional Chef . We talked about the different kinds of positions in the kitchen and wow my tongue was truly exercised since all the terms were in french. I like it though because I always dreamed of learning the language. I've been sleeping well in my rented room but I still need to make it more livable. It's hard to be apart from my family but I really want to study culinary so I have to be vigilant in my studies to come. I won't be seeing Chef Hicham for the next couple of weeks until I start my basic culinary or when I start the cooking classes. I look forward to getting my knives with my name carved in it, ohhh it really is very exciting and learning of course the function of each one plus I'm really excited to learn how to make decors out of vegetables. I may have to buy vegetables to practice on but that's getting ahead of myself. I didn't bring any camera with me so I don't have pics of my new school yet. I will keep posting about my progress so watch out for them.

Finally after a long time of waiting for my TOR to be released I got it yesterday but before that there was still a little bit of a mishap. Ok here goes.. When I went there to pick it up as scheduled last april 19 I got there and found out that I still have to pay additional fees for it to be released and guess what? I didn't bring any money with me except for fares and stuff. I was really pissed because it was so hot and I had to go all the way back to minglanilla where it takes me 2 jeepney ride and takes about an hour or so. When I got home I didn't have extra money at all to pay for the TOR hahahahah just my luck so I asked my father to send me some and he couldn't til next week and that was yesterday so finally I got it now and then went to the culinary school and passed everything. Now I have to attend the orientation which is on the 11th of June and the official classes starts on the 14th so now all I have to do is find a room to rent near my school so everything will be set. My cousin will be going with me on this hunt. At least I won't be the only one baking under the extreme heat of the sun whoopeee heheheheh. Well that's it for now folks check out again later for updates. Tata.

I didn't expect getting a copy of ones TOR a big hassle. Hmm maybe because my being an undergraduate is the reason but anyhow its been 3 weeks and now I just found out I won't be able to get it til next month !!!!!! GRRRRRRR. Let me tell you the story. When I graduated highschool I wanted to be a computer expert so I studied in the school nearest me but then I changed my mind and decided to become a teacher and so I went to another school where my mom studied. But I din't finish blah blah blah and blah. So here I am now deciding to take up culinary as I mentioned in my earlier post. Well they needed a copy of my school records and so I went to the latest school I went to. When i got there we argued because I told them that I don't need a transfer credential for my TOR but they insist that since I'm enrolling in another school that that's what I need and I keep thinking I am not enrolling in an academic school its a culinary school for Gods sake but I got tired of arguing and said ok only to find out that my first school didnt forward my original record when it was requested so I had to go there and request it so I can hand carry it back to the other school and guess how long it took 1 week. Imagine that 1 week to just type and have the head sign it. And so like a good girl I just let it pass and all that So when I finally had it , I went back to the other school to handcarry the records and then I found out it will be a month still. I almost passed out well I really didn't but it adds drama don't you think ? heheheheh. Well folks I guess I'll just have to wait it out like a good girl.This really SUCKS!!!!

From my christmas post I mentioned about me and my estranged dad talking again. I liked it because at last i can rest my dragons. I often asked God for help about that and I told Him that if it was time for me to talk to my dad again then He will let it happen and I believe that He has.
I've seen him a couple of times already and he asked me what I wanted to do and I told him that I wanted to study culinary. I found a news paper clipping and showed it to him but he said that he knows someone who was teaching at a culinary school and that school happen to be called Phililppine School of Culinary Arts. And boy is that school expensive. In told my dad that it was too expensive but he said he will take care of it and so I just jumped at the opportunity and I really hope I get in. Right now I am working on the stuff or documents that the school requires and its taking a while. I hope I can accomplish them soon, get in and be called "Chef Chay". Heheheheh that has a nice ring to it don't you think?

I don't know if people can really tell but I have heard talks and comments that I look good. I'm not trying to be conceited or something but I admit I love hearing that. I have lost weight and I surely hope it is showing up...... It is big time. Just yesterday I went back to my old work place and I was basking in their nice comments( I hope they were not just patronizing me) but anyhow almost everyone I saw said I really look sexier. I've looked at pics of myself and I compared them and I myself can feel that my body has changed. Will be posting pics of before and after so you folks and be the judge. By the way I used to weigh 198 lbs and now I weigh 171 lbs. hurray me. I'm good ,I'm good... oh yeah oh yeah (doing the running man) Kah! Kah! and stopping.

As you all folks know I was out of circulation for a while because I was working almost non-stop but I am back now. I recently resigned from that job and I am spending time with my mom at the moment.I had some very personal reasons why I stopped and I'm not gonna get into that as of now. Right now I want to talk Christmas 2009 hence the title....hmmmm Oh I'm sure you guys noticed it.
It is always wonderful to spend Christmas with the people you love. I thought that we wouldn't be able to celebrate it with much food but God always provided us with the food to celebrate. He sent us angels in the person of our friends from Germany. Thank you guys so much for everything .And do you know what more I saw my dad whom I haven't seen or talk to for more than 10 years. Can you believe that? Is this a start of a reconciliation? maybe, I am hoping it would be so I can really get on with my life. I believe it is high time to let the dragons rest.
The food was wonderful so I really don't have much pics taken because I was busy eating, eating and more eating. Mom prepared everything since I was still working at that time.The food were delish and that's all I could say about that heheheheh. Well folks that was my Christmas how did you spend yours?
