My First Million Peso

How to earn a million peso?

Interesting question, yes?

Easy to answer, but really hard to commit.

So really, how to earn a million peso?

At the age of 23, I'm proud, of course, very proud of myself  that I already earned my FIRST F*CKING MILLION PESO. 

When I graduated from college, my parents gave me a lump sum from my educational plan as a graduation gift. They told me that it'll mine as a reward for graduating on-time. Well I think even though I did not graduated on time, it'll still go on my pocket, because I'm their only son anyway. Ha ha ha. So the original plan is to buy that money a brand new car. But a blessing in the sky came to me. A relative of mine share his insights on putting up a business. He helped me. Trained me. Encouraged me. And I gave him credits for what I have now. 

2013. I started to put up my own business. 

2015. After two years of hard work (blood, sweat & tears), with the help of my parents and family and of course God, my business started to get noticed, grow up and finally giving me my first million peso. With that short time I think, I am really lucky to earn that.


Goal. I set my goal. What do I want to achieve in life. Set a timeline and work work work for it.

Risk. Risk-Return Tradeoff, the higher the risk, the higher the return. I do believe that in order to be successful in life, we should all take risks. Not only in business but also in our daily lives. I'm just wise on where to take my risks because it's not every time it will make returns, sometimes it also losses. 

Hunger. Human nature. I am never contented on what I have and what I am. I still have a lot to learn, achieve and strive for. So I stay hungry. Push myself to my limits because I will never know them if I just play safe.

Mistakes. Nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes but if we do, we learn from it. I'm never afraid in making mistakes because I will never get my success if I never failed. 

At a young age, achieving this much is really something to be proud of. I swear to God, I'm just lucky. Without all the opportunities He and my family gave me, I'm nothing. I just used my luck wisely. 

Happy reading!

IMBENTO ni IMELDA: Grilled Pink Salmon with Toasted Garlic


Our favorite thing in the world, Kani Salad. 

Caviars on my salad gives a little saltiness on it, making it perfect with the sweetness of the mangoes and creaminess of the Japanese mayo. Plus those crab freaking sticks, oh-some! 


My mom loves garlic. Actually, we all love garlic. It really helps to control our weight. But not for us, OK? Absolutely not for us. Definitely definitely not for us. 

Well the pink salmon has its own distinct taste. Sweet juice! Among all the omega-3-loaded and protein-loaded fish, this is my favorite. No doubt. 

After finishing my slab I suddenly asked my mom if we could keep alive salmon at home, but she said no. Ok fine. Just cooked for me more of these as often as possible. 

Happy eating!

IMBENTO ni IMELDA: Pork Tonkatsu with Japanese Mayo

PORK TONKATSU with Japanese Mayo

Pork Tonkatsu

What makes this special is that Mama makes her own Tonkatsu sauce. Yes. She just mix Worcestershire sauce, tomato ketchup and soy sauce. Simply easy!

And my choice of adding Japanese mayo completes everything in my plate. 

Happy eating!

IMBENTO ni IMELDA: Chiken Pastel topped with Torched Cheese a.k.a. Tinagong Chicken

And so I'm back!! Oh-Yes I'm backAfter almost 2 busy years, the last post here is July 2013 pa, I finally decided to write again. Not that I'm not busy, ok? Busy pa rin ako. In business as usual #stressed. Playing badminton and now tennis which I really, really enjoy playing. Ayun. Just want to exercise my yummy thoughts, un lang

This is not the first time that I'll be posting one of Mama's invented recipes. Meron din noon-noon pa. It's also one of the reasons why I want to revive this blog site because I want to give Mama credit for her sipag and tiyaga in researching and experimenting oh-so-yummy dishes. And to give highlight for her talent in cooking. Naks Ma! For the record, kinikilig siya pag pino-post ko ung mga luto niya.
