Sopas forever! haha.
so the new year's have passed. happy o8 everyone!
anyhow, i've got lots happening here. our maid left to go back to her province to have a good time and all that. .... she's always like this. time and time again, we've paid her to work, and then she leaves... we give her the day off every Sunday, but sometimes she also takes the night off. HELLO we have school on mondays, we need breakfast to be on the table by 5AM! and none of us can make breakfast in the morning coz we all have to sleep as much as we can. most of us don't sleep at all coz of all the homework... she's been with us for years and years, on and off. she always leaves us after a few months, asks her sisters or her daughters to cover up for her, and then returns, only to go back home, and leave us, tired from all the schoolwork or from work, to do all the house keeping.
yes, she's a nice person. but she's got a job. the money is not the problem here. we need to get the job done. which is why we hired her.
so practically, on the busiest days of the year, when we need her most, coz we always have celebrations during the holidays, she's gone.
so we did all the house keeping.
it's okay, i guess. coz there aren't any classes. i'm fine with doing chores during vacation... i actually find doing chores quite fun, coz i do them with my cousins who live with us, and with my big sister too...
but by Monday... we have school again. by the time i come home, i instantly have homework to do. actually i have some already now.
anyway, breakfast was turned into a disaster epic, into a fairytale, into a tragedy, into a comedy.
so i woke up to make breakfast with my cousin. half my mind was asleep, but i managed to chop up the carrots and the cabbage. we were making Sopas. it's a soup with macaroni, milk, carrots, cabbage, ground meat and chopped up hot dog bits. yeah so we were making the breakfast, when we didn't notice that we put in ONE WHOLE KILOGRAM OF MACARONI. *palmface* so there was a HUGE batch of Sopas. and the macaroni got overcooked, so it looked like the same adhesive you'd use for putting up posters!
then my mom woke up and made everything tasty, even though the macaroni was like glue...
then she told us that if we don't finish all that sopas, we'd get punished... coz it's our fault.
and then we had to eat all that in one day. we didn't have to cook lunch anymore... coz that's what we ate. in total, i had three bowls. hahaha.
my other cousin, who was originally the one who was told to make breakfast, but slept through the whole thing, she almost vomitted and stuff. and we had a hard time eating all that coz it tasted like elmers glue with salt, hot dogs, cabbage and carrots. hahaha. totally weird.
and so my cousin said "CURSE YOU SOPAS!!!"
