52 Week Photography Challenge: Selfie

Week 1: Selfie

This was one of those early selfies I made with my then Canon digital camera.  Unfortunately, that dear camera got lost.  To my disappointment, I had even erased it from my memory its model/type number.

The photo was taken inside our home (obviously).  I did not bother to time the camera.  I just snapped it and there it was.  As expected, the prominent feature of my face is my nose and the mole (that had grown bigger as I grew up).  An officemate once asked me if I had my nose ‘lifted’.  “Of course not,” I answered.  It just happened that my nose got noticeable when I decided to put on contact lenses.

Eat at Home

I was listening to the radio while Winnie and Ariel of DZMM discuss the benefits of eating at home. I find it very interesting and the discussion is surely an eye opener for me who had always argued with Papsie about eating out.


The first reason why we should choose to eat at home is that it is healthier. They say when you eat out, one cannot control, for example, the salt and sugar content of your food. When you are at home and you know that you are diabetic, you will limit the amount of sugar, or when you are hypertensive, you can control the amount of salt you put in your dish.


Second, it is cheaper. This is one reason Papsie will like very much. The foremost reason he does not want to eat out is the cost of the food in the menu. I have learned to understand that the underlying reason, too, is that he knows how to cook, he knows how much the food will cost if he buys the ingredients and cooks them. There was even a time that he actually calculated and discovered that the food costs thrice as much as the cost if he buys the ingredients and cooks them.


The last reason is that eating at home enhances one’s creativity. One reason, too, why those food in those restos are expensive is because we also pay for the hard work they put on the presentation. But we can also be creative and not spend a single centavo on the presentation.

Pretty interesting info, don’t you agree?
