The way to beat it is to go back to your normal grind. And that’s what I did. Even tho’ I was suffering from runny nose and no voice I literally went back to work and checked on my household.
First thing off, I fired the assistant of our cook.
That’s why I don’t like going away for a long time ’cause you don’t know what the household staff are doing. And the one thing I really hate is they don’t take care of our dogs. I hate that they don’t feed them on time.
And I caught Sara (the assistant of our cook) was not feeding them on time when I was gone.
It was past their feeding time and I was wondering why Schumi was still with me. So, I called the kitchen and asked why Schumi was still upstairs. Sara said papakainin ko na po mam. Bakit andito pa si Schumi? Kukunin ko na po.
Sara has been with us for like a month and a half only. When she first came I already told her the scope of her work.
Clean the kitchen (clean kitchen and dirty kitchen), wash the dishes, assist the cook when we eat, cook the food of the household staff AND cook the food of the dogs and feed them.
When I was interviewing her I did not like her. Medyo mayabang. HRM (Hotel & Restaurant Management) graduate daw sya. Ha? What are you doing here? But I still gave her a chance.
Ever since my friend Myka told me not to feed our dogs dog food but rather real food we have been feeding our dogs human food. Myka taught me to buy sawdust meat in S&R and taught me how to cook it.
We feed our dogs morning and night only. I told her to defrost the sawdust meat every 3:00pm and when the meat is defrosted she can cook it already and by 6:00pm she can feed the dogs.
I told her specifically that I want all the dogs to be fed by 6:00pm. And she said yes, in front of Rhea, who is my trusted staff.
That’s what she has been doing ever since she came. But since I was not home for a week she probably stopped doing her scheduled work. Na sira ang schedule nya.
I went down to the kitchen and I saw her cooking the food and it was already past 7:00pm. I asked her why is she only cooking at this time.
Then the shit hit the fan, so to speak.
She started screaming at me saying: hindi ko naman trabaho yan eh. Hindi yan ang pinunta ko dito. Ang sabi sa akin assistant ako ng cook!
Eh, di lumipad ang water dish ni Schumi! That shut her up.
I told her to get out of my house ASAP. I don’t need this stress.
I shouldn’t have hired her on the get go. I felt it already when I first saw her.
I was suppose to have lunch out yesterday and go to my goldsmith. I was dressed and all that only to find out I don’t have a driver. Joshua was with Vinny.
So, nagpa picture na lang ako. I worked from home and ate paksiw na isda with bigas mais for lunch. Sarap!
My auntie Inday asked me what I want to bring back to Manila and I told her I want bigas mais. So, she sent me some before I left.
Bigas mais is only available in Visayas and Mindanao. It is rice made of ground corn and that has been my favorite ever since I was small.
