Comfort Food: Fudgy Brownies

Sumasadsad ang pakiramdam ko ngayon. Sumasayad sa sobrang baba. Sa ingles, I’m feeling down and low. Feeling ko aping-api ako ngayon. Chos!

Eto ang panahon na naghahanap ako ng kakampi, ng taong pwede ko dakdakan ng detalye ng mga angal ko sa buhay. Mga angal na wish ko lang ay may napagsasabihan sana ako – may katuturan man o wala. Yung tipong no holds barred na pagrereklamo bagah. But since I don’t have anyone to turn to…pinagdiskitahan ko na lang ang paggawa ng isang maituturing kong comfort food ko –

Fudgy Brownies.

Kaya naman, I want to thank MYSELF for everything. Hahaha! For being there when I needed ME most. For helping me not to be scared. And for drying up my tears. For catching when I see ME falling. And for always knew how to turn my frown upside down. Naloko na! Tunog may sayad na yata ako. Halata na bang bumibigay na ako? Hehe!
