My New Baby

I’m on my third week of no-rice diet! Can you believe that? I can’t. After all, it felt like it was only yesterday when I told myself I can’t quit it. I’m still trying to get the hang of it, but definitely I’m getting better. I’ll show you what I’ve been eating instead in my future posts.

Today I’m going to share with you my new baby. I think I already mentioned my shuffling back and forth to Boljo-on. Here’s one of the reasons:

st. therese store in progress (6)

I’m putting up a religious supply store called Saint Therese (because she’s my favorite saint). This will be formally opened on August 11, a Sunday.Β It’s located down south, and as far as I know, it’s the ONLY one of its kind there. It’s not going to be the next Saint Paul’s, though I’m hoping; but it’s enough to cater to churches, organizations, and anyone who find traveling to the city to buy the supplies tedious. I’ll also be having a very small snack bar with batchoy and lugaw just to add more to the income. In time, I may be able to convert the terrace (you see above the store) into a small coffee shop or restaurant.

I’m just excited. I haven’t really sold anything in my life, but I have the best mentors with me–my parents and my sister–and love the awesome support I’m receiving from the rest of my kin and Bernard. Β It’s a beautiful change in my life.

  1. Congratz! It is indeed an achievement to put up your own business. It’s one of my lifetime bucketlist. LOL I used to frequent there in Boljoon before because of my friend Iste Sesante, maybe you know her. Anyways, gigutom ko pagbasa nako og batchoy. Hahaha

    Someday, I’ll drop by there to check your store. πŸ˜‰

    • Hello!

      Thanks for dropping by. It’s way out of my comfort zone, but I’m so nearing thirty. When will I start taking large risks, right? πŸ™‚ I know some Sesantes, but I don’t think I have met your friend. I feel ever since I have always been a recluse. Hopefully, though, when you get to Boljo-on, I can meet you and your friend.

    • Thank you, Geez. πŸ™‚ I miss you, guys, as well. I’ve been so out of the loop for some time, but I’m back. πŸ™‚ Yes, I’ll be happy if you can visit my small store one of these days.

So what are your thoughts?
