Yesterday lunch, I tried to cook a sweet and sour lapu-lapu thinking that it will come out like what I was imagining since the day I bought the fish from the market... Fried the fish, made the sauce..... and voila!!! My specialty, sweet and sour lapu-lapu ala tsamba!!!
I have been eating fried egg, noodles, hotdog, corned beef, tocino and the like with rice for the past few days so I was excited of having my sweet and sour lapu-lapu for lunch this time. I took some rice and put my specialty on the top. Feeling so hungry, I immediately put a mouthful of rice with my patsam...
Something's lacking, I am not sure what was it but something's lacking.... Anyway, I still finish it and I had my greatest lunch for this year (imagining that it was from a five star hotel)! So last night I tried to add some spices to the leftover; took some spices from my Sri Lankan and Indian friends. This time it tastes a little better, not like what I have imagined at first but it tasted like a real sweet and sour lapu-lapu!
Meanwhile, my imagination of having profits in a flash was not that real also. Yes, I earned some good profits last year but not for the first 2 months of this year. So many factors has been affecting the stock market like foreign funds being transferred to US and EUROPE and Middle East "happenings". Because of these, the PSEI has not yet continued it's bullish trend since November.
My portfolio has been suffering some big paper losses and I can't remember anymore when was the last day that I had a green portfolio. The stocks that have the biggest paper losses at the moment were mostly property stocks like VLL, ALI and FLI... Why oh why?
Anyway, with an investor attitude there is no need to panic at the moment. I still have some cash and I'm planning to add more stocks in my portfolio. I tried to bid for MPI this morning which will be for my long term hold but was not hit. Maybe next week I will bid again for MPI and EDC.
Just like what I have imagined for my sweet and sour lapu-lapu, hindi ko man nakuha agad ang tamang timpla ng stocks investing ko. Makukuha at makukuha ko rin yan sa tiyaga... Another important thing is that I tried. As what we always say, "there's no harm in trying".
Oh by the way, i still had a leftover sweet and sour lapu-lapu this lunch! yum yum!!!
