How To Find Satisfaction In Life?

This isn't going to be one of those articles enumerating the different ways on how one can find satisfaction in life. I'm as clueless to that as you are, really. This is going to be one of those rant-ridden post. Yeah. So here goes.

Lately, I've been distracted - once again. I've been thinking a lot about things. I'm doubting my career choice. 

I graduated with a degree in civil engineering a few years ago. I'm on my third year as a working woman now and I'm being plagued by questions about my life. My career. My field of choice. 

My job. 

What am I doing with my job right now? I am not the most diligent employee in my workplace, that's for sure. I don't like what I'm doing. But I don't know what to do about it. Or rather I'm still afraid to do something about it. Because I don't have the courage yet to take a big leap of faith once again. To drop everything and pursue something I love. My passion. So here I am. Stuck on doing something I love to hate.

They say there's no perfect job. That you have to learn how to be happy with your job. But why can't I find happiness with what I'm doing? I'm trying. I think I'm trying hard enough. Or maybe I'm not.

I feel inadequate. Unsuccessful. I feel like I'm not making any progress at all in my life. Such negativity, I know. But I can't help it. This work is not doing it for me. I'm not learning anything new from it. So... I feel unsatisfied.

How to get back on track? Hmm..

Sagada's The Lemon Pie House

During my stay in Sagada, I made sure to try and eat at the famous Lemon Pie House. Almost all blogs I've read recommended it so I decided to give it a try.

On my second day, after my exhausting tour highlighted by spelunking at Sumaguing Cave, I made my way to The Lemon Pie House. I got there around 02:00PM so it was pretty much deserted already. I was actually the only customer that time. 

The first thing I noticed when I entered the place was the small, wooden chairs and tables. It was like a location for a daycare or something. It was so cute! Then on the other side there were low tables where diners get to eat while sitting on the floor with pillows as cushions. It's like those traditional Korean restaurants. Nice and quaint

I settled for the small chairs rather than sitting on the floor. I'm scared I might get cramps. Hah. I ordered Chicken Adobo with Rice and Lemon tea. The serving was huge! The plate consists of like 3/4 chicken adobo and 1/4 rice.

Sadly, there was nothing worth praising in the Chicken Adobo. It was your usual chicken adobo cooked with potatoes and carrots this time. The taste was a little bland for me. I think it needs more salt. The Lemon Tea was okay. It was too lemon-y for my taste. I'm not a fan of lemon meh. I just have to try this for myself. It was also kind of thick, I reckon that's from the lemon syrup thingy I saw them mixing with the tea.

After the main course, I ordered a slice of Lemon Pie because you can't leave Sagada without trying their Lemon Pie. How was it? For me, honestly, I did not liked it. Why? Because again it is too lemon-y for my taste.

Overall, my Lemon Pie House experience was just average. The interiors were good, quaint, and warm. It's a good place to hang-out, catch-up with friends and just chill over some pies and teas.

For everyone that's planning to go to Sagada, I'd still recommend for you to try this restaurant. It's a must! Taste varies from person to person so might as well make sure to give it a try yourselves. You might like it much more than me.

Sagada's Yoghurt House

I had my very first meal in Sagada at the Yoghurt House. It was just a short walk from where I'm staying which was at St. Joseph's Inn.

The place was a 2-story building with a big "Yoghurt House" sign in front. The ground floor was deserted but I can hear people from the second floor so I guess that's were all they were lounging. As for me, I opted to stay at the ground floor.

Entering the place, I didn't really find anything unusual. It was nice and quaint. There were framed paintings hanging on the walls and a sign was put up saying not to take pictures of the pictures. LOL. But aside from that, nothing too fancy for my taste.

One thing that got me though was that there were too many flies. Seriously, it was annoying swatting left and right.

Moving on, I ordered some Roasted Eggplant in Basil Pasta and a Banana Lassie for lunch. I found the pasta to my liking. It wasn't overcooked and was seasoned just right. The eggplant blended perfectly with the pasta. It was delicious! Plus, it has a huge serving! Yay!

But... The lassie.. Was it supposed to be served at room temperature though? I had a lassie before at Mister Kabab and it was served cold. So I was rather disappointed because I was expecting a cold drink to quench my thirst after walking for like forever.

Unfortunately, I was not able to try their house specialty: yoghurt with strawberry, banana, and granola. Maybe next time I will surely try it for myself!

Still, I was satisfied with everything about the Yoghurt House. A must try if you're planning on visiting Sagada!
