You Alone

Gutom Lang

The poem above—assuming it is indeed a poem—is admittedly chaka and is also alternatively titled “Pizza”:

For I desire and I suffer —
                  and pizza and pizza alone
               could satisfy my hunger.

True ‘no?

But shitty poetry aside, I just got back from Panago after picking up a late-night order. It’s almost midnight and I should be sleeping but I once again skipped supper and boy am I hungry.

I have been eating only once a day. Stupid, I know. I am now 15 pounds underweight and my physique is slowly transitioning from pre boob job Kim Chiu to post heroin Kate Moss. Give me a few more days and I might just turn into the kalansay replica sulking in the corner of your science classroom.

I sure miss the karindirya. Fast food here isn’t cheap so preparing my own food is more budget-friendly. But budget isn’t even the issue; I’m just too lazy to cook. A semi-digression: my first brush with culture shock was discovering that KFC does not serve rice. Eating just two pieces of fried chicken felt like hearing half a joke, no punchline. Or reading a fragment.

Another digression (this time completely off-track): I vehemently disagree with the CA’s decision to reject Judy Taguiwalo as DSWD secretary. To borrow Sen. Ralph Recto’s words: “it is her work during the ‘unsalaried phase’ of her checkered career which is her biggest qualification in holding the DSWD portfolio.” Hay. Mabuhay ka, Ma’am Judy!

Anyways pardon the (bad) poetry, the first world problems, and the abominable attempt at coherence. Gutom na gutom na gutom lang talaga ako.

      1. Have you tried those food in a jar na pwede mong istrore for a week? You make it on Sundays. Mostly salad lang kasi but then at least kakain ka. Masarap at masaya magluto. Taong kain hugas pinggan lang din ako dati but when I learned to cook, mas gusto ko ng magluto kesa kumain. Mash potatoes, potato crochet, or corn will work as replacement sa rice. Cook pasta, hiwalay mo ung sauce para medyo tumagal ng ilaw araw. Mabubuhay ka sa ganun. It will only take you 20 minutes max to cook a decent easy pasta. Pramis.

      2. Na-try ko nang mag-salad kaya lang hindi ko masyadong bet bilang baon. Parang hindi nakakabusog? At mabilis lang ba gumawa ng mash-po? Sige susubukan ko ‘yang patatas suggestions mo!

        May rice naman ako dito sa bahay kaya lang hindi niya kayang isaing ang sarili niya. Iniisip ko pa lang ‘yung pagsalok ng bigas, tapos paghugas, tapos pagtantya ng taas ng tubig — wala baks, matutulog na lang ako. Hahaha. Nokokotomod!

      3. Anak ka kaserola, Jolens! Magsaba ka na lang. Ilalaga lang yun, teh! Hahahaha. Mas madaling magsaing kesa magmash potato na maayos. Ilaga mo na lang din. Pwede na yun.

      1. As in na-confuse ako isang beses. Thirty minutes akong nakatayo sa Powerbooks binabasa ko ung book niya and I keep asking myself, “Alin dito? Bakit hindi ko naiintindihan ang hype? Bakit hindi ko maintindihan ang mga tula?” Hahahaha! Nai-stress ako sa mali-maling putol ba, so ganun siya binabasa ng utak ko. Sakit ng ulo ko lumabas ng bookstore. Haha! Until a friend tweeted na di niya magets ang hype and I was like, “I’m not the only one!!!” HAHAHA!

        Uy, bongga! Ubos na yung sakin wala pa kong pambili ng bago. 💔 Nagtiyatiyaga ako sa Faceshop ngayon.

    1. Wala ako sa disyerto, nasa freezer ako way up north haha. Naku magandang idea ‘yang pagdikit sa mga taong mahilig magluto. Sayang nga lang wala ako masyadong friend dito, pero I will for sure be on the lookout for potential tropapips na mahilig magluto hahaha.

      1. Ako rin! Kasi ‘yung pagtulog madaling gawin, hihiga ka lang at pipikit at maghihintay (at sanay na sanay tayo sa paghihintay, chot!). ‘Yung pagluluto ang daming steps nakakashomad! Hahahaha.
