I’m sorry goodbye

I had you in my life before

But now I have to let you go

I never wanted this to happen

But who is to blame anyway?

You’re  a friend who is special

Someone whom I thought that’s number one

But that was before

And I found out that I was wrong

I gave you my heart

I trusted you my love

You did your part

And so did I

I had my faults

And so did you

We just wasted our time

Do you think so?

Maybe we are really not meant to be

Our love is not enough

To keep our relationship be

Thank you for the laughs

And for the tears you shared with me

Sorry for the sorrow

That I didn’t meant to give

This time I know

It’s goodbye for sure

Your heart’s not free

And so is mine

I love someone so

I’m sorry goodbye.

The Best Chicken Macaroni Soup


 

I remember the feast me and my family enjoyed during the holidays. The many choice of dishes we prepared, each one of us having our own signature dish. It has been our tradition  to cook together every Christmas and New Year’s eve. Since I was a kid I always look forward to this special occasion. That’s when my passion for cooking started. The smell of mom’s Pork Hamonado (pork ham) enticed me that one Christmas eve and it continue to entice me until this day. I love the beautiful colors of veggies, meats, seafood, fruits, and even the canned ingredients that she buys for all the oh-so-good dishes she prepare. 

When everything is cooked and ready we will then wait for the clock to strike to 12 so it’s officially Christmas or New Year and we will all eat together. Everyone praising each one for the yummy dish he/she cooked. One of the dish we always got to have during this season is our Chicken Macaroni Soup or Chicken Sopas as we call it here in the Philippines. This is a simple dish that is considered an everyday meal but we all love having it that we gave it the honor to be on our Christmas and New Year feast! 

This is perfect for the cold season this time of the year. This dish is not only cooked to warm you up but also because it’s full of the good stuff. The good stuff meaning healthy ingredients of course!

We grew up eating and loving her recipe and we will always love it and rate it as the best!  But I added some more ingredients and cook it differently.

Love you in my heart… A poem about a fan’s unrequited love

 

 

You live so far from me

The truth is you don’t even know me

But I keep on loving you

What else can I do?

But to love you in my heart

I wish that someday

I’ll be able to meet you

Or maybe have the pleasure

To personally know you

But for now I will only love you here in my heart

You are that big star

And I’m just a simple fan

No matter how crazy it may sound

But I will love you still

And I will love you forever 

Here in my heart
