First, just realised I miscalculated Day 1’s brunch box – I said I ate a total of 5p’s worth of garlic sausage when I actually used three slices which means it should be 15p, instead. So yesterday’s overall spendage was 95p, not 85p. Apologies!
My brunch box was pretty much the same as yesterday. An apple (10p), a banana (9p), a sandwich made from 1/6 baguette (7p), 3 slices of garlic sausage (15p) and a few leaves (3p), and a priceless photo of little me… just because. I also allocated 3 bags of tea (1p) for this day so that’s a total of 45p!
12pm came around and all I could think about was food. I unwrapped my baguette sandwich and the smell of garlic sausages unexpectedly reminded me of lechon, (aka Anthony Bourdain’s “best pig ever” and Chowtzer Fast Feast’s Tastiest Dish in Asia 2014) which is usually served during celebrations and festivities in the Philippines. It made me wonder how people below the poverty line celebrate occasions, if they actually do at all. It hit a sad note how some people may never experience the simple joys in life.
And it lasted for almost 6 hours. @#$%^&*!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This reminded me of the time my friends and I went on a spontaneous beach trip and I ‘power napped’ for 2 hours! O_O
I didn’t get to have dinner. My stomach is definitely grumbling but I woke up just after 1am which means whatever I consume would eat into Day 3’s budget. This is bad. Really bad. Not only am I worried about my health, I’m worried about how I’ll get through Day 3 when we are hosting this event at work (think prosecco, G&Ts, canapes). O_O
Overall spendage for the day: 45p
Overall belly factor: Better through the working day, super empty at night.
Overall feeling: @#$%^&*!!!!!! I am never taking power naps again!!!
