Craves and Sights: Woo Galbi, Gigi Cafe/Shelter, Cafe Mesa

And so I pigged out again.

I just can't seem to stop my cravings that I have to eat at different restaurants all the time. As much as I would like to save money and spend less on food (as bulk of my meager monthly salary goes to food), I couldn't help it. My insatiable human cravings are far more powerful than my EQ. So here goes yet another set of restaurants I have tried over the past few weeks.

Address: Level 6, Shangri-La Plaza, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City

You know how I love everything Korean, right? Food is just one of the many things I love about Korea. Though I don't think Woo Galbi is actually authentic, but I must say that their bibimbap and jjampong tasted really good. We had the bibimbap with bulgogi sauce and my mouth literally went berserk secreting so much saliva. It was that good! We also ordered it with red rice for a healthier version. The jjampong was equally mouth-watering. The noodles were soft and they had so much ingredients! The shrimps were huge and the soup was not that spicy. Their servings are for sharing unless your stomach can eat for two.

Morning Habits to Boost Energy

Waking up early everyday can be a drag. I have to wake up at around 4:30 every day just to get to work. Sometimes I feel vexed especially when I had a long day before and was exhausted. I hate waking up early as I will feel sluggish and lethargic. I will be unproductive and grumpy most of the time. And those are attitudes of an unhealthy employee. Those are attitudes of an unhappy worker. So over the past few months, I’ve been trying some habits that will help boost my energy and display a positive disposition. I can say that my overall mood has improved – though I am still grumpy at work sometimes, but due to some things that really give me permission to be grumpy. I feel happier and more productive. A happier, more productive and positive colleague helps make the workplace a tenfold better place to work in.
