Eating Alone

I always thought eating alone wasnt my thing. I can eat alone at home.. but never in a public place.. i remember when i was in college.. even if i was hungry to death and my acid starts kicking in, i would never eat alone! if i couldn't find anyone i know in the cafeteria, i'd buy a waffle or anything i can eat while walking. i'd walk around campus going nowhere! kawawang loner. even at the mall. i'd always buy a drink and eat while window shopping. i like shopping alone, by the way.
Last Tuesday though, i was reallllyyyy hungry and i knew i had to eat something heavy coz i was going to the gym at around 8 pm. since i cldnt find anyone to eat with me, i went downstairs by myself. i've been craving for pesto from figaro so i went straight to the coffee shop. i was tyring to decide wthr or not i should have it to-go and eat it in the pantry or eat it there and have all the cheese i want. Well, for the first time, i decided to eat alone. it felt weird and the place was almost empty. i read magazines that are soooo not intersting for me just to avoid looking weird with no one to talk to while eating. after a few minutes, i left the place satisfied and unharmed. heeeeheeee. maybe i should try it more often.

i think those who can't eat alone may have something to do with their self-confidence. although i am ok with myself, i guess i can do better. basta weird talga if you eat alone.

ako kaya ko kumain magisa! kasi bilib ako sa sarili ko! in other words, hindi ako loser. palagi ako kumakain sa mga mamahalin na restaurant pero hindi ako nagbabasa ng magazines, nagpapaka-angas lang ako tapos cool na ako agad. dapat palagi ako may hawak na beer para cool na cool yung dating kahit ayaw ko uminom.

ganun ba yun masterchu? cge, i-try ko yung advice mo para naman hindi ako ma-ilang pag kumakain ako mag-isa. nakakainsecure ka naman dude.

during college, eating alone became a habit. Kasi naging weird ang eating schedule ko...

I even watch movies alone, but never on a comedy (major-loser factor ata yun)mukha na ata akong talagang freak nun.

You can do it frankie... theres no harm in eating alone :)

dessa girl said...

thanks frankie. buti pa kayo ni sarajoe. i think the movie thing may be ok. mahirap nga tumawa pag mag-isa ka lang. sobrang sad naman when you cry alone.. hehe. maybe i'll try it SOME DAY. eating muna alone and gagawin ko..

Di ko rin trip kumain mag-isa sa public places. So kapag mag-isa ko lang, I'd buy food then watch a movie. Harharhar.

ajay said...

Siguro am a loner dessa kasi i can eat alone, also watch a movie alone and i prefer to shop alone. something wrong with me?hehehe. congrats on your eat-alone adventure, we need some solitude sometimes you know....;)

p.s. galing ka pala ng hawaii..buti ka pa.

dessa girl said...

watson: yun ang hindi ko pa nagagawa. manoon ng movie mag-isa. but i've watched a play alone already.. it was ok.

ajay: ok ka lang? there's nothing wrong with you.. galing mo nga kasi you have the confidence to do that. i like shopping alone too. it's soooo much better.. thanks for dropping by!

master CHU said...

play? play?! anong pagpapasikat nanaman yan ma'am dessa? pwede ba ipaalala mo sa sarili mo na ang mga teleserye sa chanel 2 is not considered a play. magpapaka-conyo ka pa jan! pweh! ako ang tunay na conyo chiefy! lalo na pag-gumigimik! taglish ako ng taglish tapos puro imported na beer ang inoorder ko tapos kunyari mabilis ako malasing kasi ang mga true conyo mahina uminom tapos habang nasa dance floor ako kunyari tatawagan ko sa celphone ko yung driver ko kahit WALA naman ako driver.

ummm...feeling na ba masyado yun? kasi sakin normal nalang eh. kaya hindi ko feel na feeling ako.

bing said...

i can eat alone if i am starving to death. if people stare, i stare back. but i enjoy eating more with company. mas feel ko ang food.

dessa girl said...

master chu: e wut will i do namaaaaan! i can't help it if i'm super conyo and saucy folks 'no. haluuuur?! you are sooo NOT chiefy! you dork! (nadidiri nako, tama na...)

bing aka juliet: hello there! thanks for dropping by.. will try to do that next time: stare back! haha! natatawa ako pag-nagimagine ako..
