A mini rant, that’s all

For the last couple of weeks, I have sent applications to not less than 15 local-based companies but haven’t heard from any one. Not a single phone call. This is disappointing. I don’t know what’s wrong or whether I missed anything or what? I may not have the most appealing resumé, but I think it’s not the worst out there. Or is it? Was it the font I used? Was it that terrible? 

You see, from where I’m from, job qualifications can be outrageous. And employers quite discriminating. 

True story: In 2015, I tried applying for an office post for a Japanese-owned English school. When I got there, I wasn’t even offered a seat. I was holding on to my resumé when the boss came up to me and said, I had to wear better clothes (like a skirt or dress) and wear makeup to look presentable. What the hell, woman? I wanted to punch her in the face. 

Another true story: I went to an interview for a data analyst post and the questions were borderline comedy. ‘Do you have a passport?’ ‘Do you hold any visa to any country?’ ‘Which countries have you visited?’ ‘Are you the youngest child?’ And finishes our talk with ‘I don’t think you need a job.’ Needless to say, I walked out on her. What an asshat. 

So, yeah. I love my little island (sun, humidity and all) but it definitely isn’t the best when you’re gay… and job hunting.

Trying Tim Ho Wan

I am not a picky eater. I just make boring food choices. And when I heard about this particular restaurant, the feedbacks sounded good. But since I didn’t want to line up, I waited for the hype to subside. Almost two months after opening, there was still a line. I waited about 10 minutes to be seated…

for this:

chow mien stir-fried noodles 》 130

Kidding. I had spare ribs rice (170) and their famous pork buns (145/3). They were so good I forgot about taking photos!

10,000 Roses Café

I don’t get it why I am so poor with directions when I’m driving in the Mactan area. So poor, that 3 of the last 4 trips I made, I got utterly lost. Yesterday, was no different. My mum wanted to go somewhere she saw on Facebook. I’ve heard about the place, and how it looked beautiful during the evening. Why? LED-powered roses. So, why did I go in the afternoon? Because one, I am not a fan of huge crowds. Two, I can not do night drives. With the nephew and niece in tow, we went. Visitors can park about a few meters away from the café.
