If you’ve been my follower on Twitter, it’ll probably kill you now to read about how much I love breakfast. Hahaha! Okay, let’s get serious here.
So I love breakfast. I have created different types of breakfast names. I’m a self-proclaimed Best Breakfast-Maker in the entire archipelago. Hahaha! This is me being serious. Anyway, the reason I’m writing about this now is because I really wanted to say a little something about savings.
In the industry that I’m in, what I’ve observed is that people spend money on breakfast like it’s water. Well, admittedly, I used to do the same. Thankfully, I bumped my head in a brick wall, and so, I’ve been set free from that mental slavery. Thank God!
Breakfast for them would be around 500-600Php. Please forgive me. I’m not as rich as the rest of you so that amount to be spent on one seating, for one meal is a bit costly for me.
An average tricycle driver in Metro Manila brings home about 200-300Php a day to his family. That’s working for more than 12hrs a day. For 500-600Php, I can buy a kilogram of Purefoods cheesedog, a pack of bacon, I can throw in some ham, oatmeal, and banana & apple. That list can last my brother, sister and I for about 10-15 days of good, healthy breakfast.
So now, as much as I love spending time with everyone, if they mention anything about expensive breakfasts, I bow out. I would rather bring them home for a Pianono Breakfast. One of the most fun breakfasts I offer. Hahaha!
As you get older, you begin to understand some parts of life and then you become thankful to your parents for raising you the way they did. I didn’t come from a rich family but just like Barry played by Steve Carell in the movie, Dinner For Schmucks, I’ve come to accept a long time ago, that time when I was still learning how to rock ‘n roll, that our good intensions to help other people can bring about terrible disasters in their lives. Well, good kind of terrible disasters. Hahaha! I understand this part here is not as clear as any writer would hope it would be but the messages are there, I’m sure.
Do you, guys, like that movie too? I love how in the end it showed us who the real schmucks are. Hahaha! Don’t fail to enjoy a good breakfast with the ones you love and don’t be a schmuck. Or become one, depending how you want to really see it. ^_^
