Weak

Chami is a dish of thick noodles with soy sauce, pepper, and veggies.  You can have it with beef, chicken or plain.   And this was what I had yesterday when I arrived home.  I have craved for it and I gave in.  Yum! 🙂  I ate at Renfel, near Lipa City Market.  They also have a branch at the Lipa City Bus Terminal.

This morning, after the service, my sister and I had lunch at Joey Pepperoni.  We decided to avail of the promo 199Php for two 8-inch pizzas with bottomless iced tea.  It’s nice. 🙂

I want to particularly talk about today’s preachings–STRONG.  VCF Lipa started the Strong series this sunday.  But I have the STRONG series in VCF Malate before.  I asked God why and the only answer I could think of is because I still have somehting to learn from this series.  True enough I am right.

They say that when we have received Jesus, we would turn away from sin.  However, a living sacrifice can crawl out from the altar, and so be lost once again.  So we have to always fill our life with God’s word.  So we will not grow astray.  When faced with temptation, what should we do?  How can we beat temptation so we will not sin anymore?

The answer is:  We should follow what Jesus did when he was tempted during his 40-day fast.

How do we follow Jesus?

1.  Read the Bible because the Scriptures are there.  Don’t just read it, memorize it, that way when we are faced with temptation we have a weapon against it.

2.  When faced with temptation, DECLARE this:  It is written that ” [say the verse]”.

The Word of God is powerful than the temptation we are facing.

What a great lesson, right? 🙂

Happy Sunday everyone! 🙂

 

Snacks

I indulged today with Korean snacks.  But before the snacks, I ate dinner first.  Here is a picture of a fish dish called “maya-maya”.  This dish was just satisfying–salty, sour and a bit spicy all at the same time.  This dish is from Davao Tuna Grill located at the 3rd floor Robinson’s Place Ermita.  The staff here asked us (before)  if we wanted extra rice, we refused because we were trying to watch what we eat.  But I guess they were right in suggesting another serving of rice because their serving of this dish was big and one rice was not enough.

I love iced tea especially the Nestea brand.  Now, I often wonder why people would serve an iced tea without ice.  I just wonder why… 🙂

It looks like E is really enjoying his food. 🙂

My dinner was so satisfying.  But somehow I was still craving for Korean snacks.  We went to a nearby Korean store–the Da Mul Grocery.  I always go there when I want to eat Korean noodles and snacks.  If you’re going to ask me how to read the Korean characters written on the packaging on the picture below, I won’t be able to do so right now.  Last year, I would have read that if only I continued to have my Korean lesson.  But I got busy and I was not able to continue my Korean lesson.

I didn’t have any tutor by the way, I just look at the basic Korean lesson online.  Maybe in a few months, hopefully, I would be better in Korean language.

Why Korean?  I fell in love with South Korea/Koreans because of their series.  I also love how Koreans love their country and how progressive their country is.  I wish Philippines could be like that one day.  We have an okay President so I’m hopeful.

About this snack, all I know is that this is a potato snack because of the picture.  It’s better than Lay’s for me because it isn’t that salty.

I also bought almond choco-coated breadstick/pretzels.  I love this snack because the almond goes really well with choco.  And it’s only 170kcal per pack (that is according to my assumption based on the pack, I just assume 🙂  )

Last night I saw this chocolate cube by Lotte and the pack was affordable but for some reason I decided not to purchase it yesterday.  So when I went there tonight, I decided to give in.  It was worth it.  The chocolate cube is tasty and really chocolate-y.

That’s it for now.  I hope tomorrow I have better choices for food.  🙂
