The Will to Survive

New additions to our Post-Glenda menu: Pork Tenderloin Steak and Soy Grilled Chicken
The months of July and August have really been tough for us. First, there was the road-widening project and then there was Typhoon Glenda. We closed for two weeks making us jobless nomads wandering from house to house trying to charge our phones. Our customers were already wondering why we were still closed when the rest of Brgy. Maahas already had electricity. We just told them that we were THAT "special." So we opened the cafe in late July with zero stocks and a very limited Post-Glenda menu. People were disappointed when they saw that the Specialty Dishes were not available. I can only shake my head in dismay. But many thanks to the people who came, talked about life with us, and enjoyed the limited menu that we have. Thanks to those who prayed for us and continued to show optimism in spite of all the adversity. Sanay na sanay ang CAnton sa adversity. haha! :)

Here's my post on FB a couple of days ago regarding our situation. Thanks to all who LIKED the post and empathized with us. 


P.S.

To my students at UPOU, if you are facing a similar situation, it is okay to weep and wail. What's important is that you press on after the grieving. Proceed with life and make use of what you have. This is just a test!
