There are lot of good things if you're not successful yet, you don't care if your methods are wrong. You will just try everything you can until you become successful, you feel so free, you feel like nothing can stop you to try something new. You feel creative, fast and always right. You don't have any patterns to follow, you're just free flowing and you don't care if you fail or not. You are willing to try every method that you can think of and your enthusiasm never go away, it's always there in your. You wake up with passion and you sleep with passion, you're so hungry to win, you will do whatever it takes to become successful. There is a different freedom that you're feeling.

You don't have an image to protect. You can fail as many times as you want, you don't have an image to protect. You don't care if they laugh at you because you're failing, you still feel free even though people are criticizing you. Some successful people care so much about their identity because they don't want to be called as a failure. They are not risking anymore, they are always playing it safe. But you are different, because you're not successful yet... you can take many risks, you are not afraid to try a lot of things. You are open to different ways to put yourself on a best position to succeed.

There is no pressure on your part because no one is expecting big things from you. You have nothing to lose, they are not expecting you to win so you're free to do anything you want, they will not even care if you're doing some ridiculous things. You are more creative because you are not here to protect your identity. You don't feel any pressure at all because no one is guarding your actions, nobody is expecting you to become successful. You're a dark horse, you can surprise a lot of people the moment you become successful.

Success is the only next thing for you. You're so familiar with failure, you are experiencing it everyday so it doesn't even matter to you anymore, you don't feel anything about it. Success is the only next thing for you. It will come in the right time for as long as you keep trying.

So be happy if you keep on failing again and again, it will make you tough, it will make you not care anymore. You will not care about humiliations, critics and embarrassments. You're so use to failing so it doesn't affect you anymore. You're a loser for how many years so you don't mind being called a loser once again. But still... you keep trying, you keep taking actions because you always knew that one day is going to be your day, you knew that success will also be on your hands. You know that it's just a matter or time, you just need to become patient a little bit more and your time will come... people who were doubting you will kiss your ass.

Easy Japchae Recipe

This is my version of Japchae or Stir-fried Glass Noodles, it's a savory and sweet Korean noodle-dish.


       250 grams Dangmyeon Noodles (Glass Noodles)
       1 small Carrot, julienned
       1 small Red Bell pepper, julienned
       Chinese Cabbage, sliced
       2 stalks Green Onions, sliced
       1 small can sliced Mushrooms
       125 grams Chicken, Pork or Beef
       1 Egg, scrambled
       1 tsp Garlic, crushed
       1 small White/Yellow Onions, sliced
       3 tbsp Sesame Oil
       6 tbsp Soy Sauce
       7 tbsp cup Sugar
       Salt & Pepper, to taste
       Toasted Sesame Seed
       Cooking Oil


1. Combine sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil and a pinch of sesame seeds in a bowl. Mix thoroughly until the sugar is completely dissolved. This is the sauce mixture, set aside.

2. Marinade the meat (chicken, pork or beef) in 2 tbsp of the sauce mixture.

3. Crack one egg, add a pinch of salt, beat it and cook it in a non-stick pan. Sliced it thinly, set aside.

4. In a large pot add water and bring it to boil. Add the glass noodles into the boiling water, cook it for 5-10 minutes, stir it occasionally so it won't stick together. To make sure that the dangmyeon noodles are already cooked, taste it, the noodles should be a bit soft and chewy.

5. Strain the noodles once cooked, rinse it with cold water to stop the cooking process, cut them with kitchen scissors for a few times because the noodles were so long, drizzle 1 tbsp of sesame oil and mix it.

6. Heat your pan, add a little amount of cooking oil, add the meat and stir-fry it until it's cooked, set aside.

7. With the same pan add cooking oil, sauté the garlic, followed by onions, add carrots, red bell pepper, the meat, Chinese cabbage, and green onions.

8. Once the veggies and meat were half-cooked, you can now add the cooked glass noodles, a pinch of salt, black pepper (I prefer a lot this), toasted sesame seeds (leave some for garnishing), and the sauce mixture.

9. Mix it all together, once it's mixed well, you can now serve it, garnish with toasted sesame seeds and sliced egg on top. Enjoy!

Tips & Info:

1. You can buy Dangmyeon Noodles (Glass Noodles, Sweet Potato Starch) in the Asian or Imported Section of large supermarkets. The price of a 500 gram Dangmyeon Noodles is ₱134.

2. The authentic Japchae uses blanched spinach and shiitake mushrooms. I substituted Chinese cabbage and canned button mushrooms because those were the only available.

3. It is best to use beef as the dish's protein because it has a more savory flavor.

Cook... Eat... And feel good!

If you want to continue what you are doing for a very long time or even forever then you should look for love not the results, you should look for the feeling and not what the process can bring. People were so addicted of getting the results right away so when they don't see it... they will stop their journey, they will look for an easier path that doesn't requires patience and perseverance. But there s no such thing as getting something great without doing it for so long. You can only experience big things and big rewards if you put a lot of time and sacrifice for it.

Find the love in any action that you execute, don't look for instant rewards and prizes, it will only make you feel bad if you can't see it.

It's all about being passionate and being serious with your work, find the happiness ever time you take an action. Do it one by one, inch by inch, step by step, never stop until you become successful.

Loving your work will make you do it for a very long time, loving it will make you stay focused and committed..

Be happy, always smile while you are working, fake happiness and it will become real the more you repeat it. Results is you goal, I get it but what if it's not showing no matter how hard you work? what are you going to do?

Just keep working, keep having fun. Forget the time, don't measure the task needed to become successful, just take baby steps today and tomorrow and the next day.

Love will keep you alive, love will keep your work alive, you will never quit for as long as you can find the love in anything that you're doing. Try to always enjoy the moment even if the steps were too difficult. Don't worry because it will become easier in just a matter of time. The game plan is very simple... always keep moving forward and love every action that you take.

The reason why you can't win in life is because you were so focused on winners and losers, you are not focusing on winning, your mind is scattered like a broken glass that cannot be fixed anymore. You don't have time for yourself but you have a lot of time for other people. You are not investing on yourself, you should groom yourself and make your life better everyday so you will experience true happiness.

YOU'RE SO FOCUSED ON WINNERS. You always watch the lives of people who are succeeding, you guarding all of their actions, studying them, sometimes you are even jealous of their success. You want to be like them but you can't even get started, you're always checking them, you don't have time for yourself anymore that's why you can't learn by yourself. Everyday, you're struggling because your confidence is slowly going down because you don't have any references to refer to if you need something about a particular situation.

Stop focusing on winners, stop guarding every activity that they're doing, stop idolizing them because you can idolize yourself, you too can reach the highest mountain, you too can become the best version of yourself. You will become a winner if you will choose to, it's all in your hands, it's all in your mindset. You become anything you want, all it takes is hard work and dedication. Be committed to your dream and everything you need will follow, you will attract success as easy as 1 2 3.

YOU'RE SO FOCUSED ON LOSERS. You hate them but you talk about them, you are making fun of them, you are criticizing them. Sometimes you feel sorry for them, but that's just a waste of time too, you need to focus on your own life because focusing on other people's lives makes you a loser too.

Own your time, don't share it with others, stop watching other people's work, stop minding them because the time you wasted could have been used to improve your life and make yourself a winner too.

Be selfish with your time, use it wisely, give it to people who really matters, give it to someone who will also help you to become successful. Use it to learn and grow, focus on the things that will give you success, money or real happiness, not just a fake and short term happiness.

Your happiness will rely on your growth, you will achieve it if you're seeing yourself progressing everyday.

Hua Mulan Combs

This is a Hua Mulan Wood Integrated Ebony Comb, looks sleek right...? This wooden hair comb costs ₱430, but I purchased it at ₱344 because it has a 20% discount. I know it's pricey compared to plastic combs that I usually had before, especially during my childhood days. Honestly, we can buy hair combs for only ₱10 easily at our local markets, and it is everywhere.
