The Sandwich Guy - A must try!

I have always been a big fan of sandwiches. If i had time, i'd make one everyday for baon! And my love for delis also made my mind create super sandwiches of different hams and sausages in my head.

Last week i dropped by Chowking in Pacific Star for my usual breakfast take out every morning. I saw this booth in the far end corner "the Sandwich Guy" but was hesitant to try because it looked like they just opened and no one was really buying. You know what they say, when its being mugged, it must be good. So i just ordered congee from Chowking and headed to the office.Jollibee is my normal breakfast buddy, that say I bought Chowking, can be called a special day. :-)

This morning, I was thinking of trying something different again. Was actually considering Pancake House in Petron, then that 45minute traffic in Sucat Road made me crave for Sandwich and the only thing in my mind is "the sandwich guy" in Pacific Star. When I got there, there were around 6 people in line waiting for ntheir sandwiches. But i patiently waited for my turn. I watched the crew make the sandwich and this time i was already so hungry i wanted to get a taste of all their sandwiches.

When it was my turn to order, I blurted the HBLT (Ham, Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and cheese), because the guy crew was making 5 HBLTs and each overflowing with shredded bacons! I also wanted their crab stick and mango but it was not available so I settled for their English Egg Salad.
I ate that this morning.... and no regrets at all...

I already had to have a bite before taking a picture! See that chunky slices of eggs? It was really good. And the contents were in generous amounts! Unlike other sandwiches for sale.

For P60.00 this is definitely a must-try.

My lunch sandwich awaits....

Gossip Girl mania

I know i'm pretty late already but i have been spending my alone time with seasons 1 and 2 of gossip girl for the past week now. In the shuttle, in a cab, during lunch breaks and after taal falls asleep at night. My husband asked me why i watch it. I answered by telling him im just glad I have a copy of all the episodes for both seasons. Its like a crazy telenovela addiction, only in english and in better taste and i did not have to wait another day to find out what happens next. Plus no commercials! My concern for now, is im almost done with season 2.

What happens next? What will i do now during my long trips to work and at night on my way home? This time, my tele-novela of a life will be on season-break :-)

XOXO, I know you love me :-)

The Sales Process

After college, when I spent sunday after sunday scanning the classified ads hunting for jobs, I asked myself more than enough times which field will I pursue. Service? Sales? Administrative? I took out the sales from the option, i did not think i was that convincing to sell something.

And 7 years later, here I am trying to study the Sales Process, its steps/stages, and the details with each step. I never knew something so simple can actually be this complicated!

After one month in my new job, i have realized that being OLDER, does not always mean being WISER. It's not really that bad. Its just that the "system" is not yet part of everyones system. I am working right now in making things better and I think this is the time i can finally use what I have learned in my previous work. I just hope i do remember the basics. My brains' been extra forgetful lately. Memory gap?
