How to Make Your Marriage Last

Marriage is not just  saying "I do" in front of God. It is a commitment of  two people with each other. To last forever is one of the biggest challenges marriage will  ever face. It will be a tough commitment, but for a couple who believe that marriage will last longer no matter what  will survive longer than those who don't fully believe in the concept of  forever. But sometimes, falling out of love is out of control. We might wake up one morning not in love with one another or just simply fell out of love.

To make a lasting marriage, the couples should know how to work with it. There is no such thing as one way relationship. This kind of marriage will not survive in a long run. It does need a lot of patience and understanding. Fighting is normal as long as it don't end in  hurting each other. Anger is a healthy emotion as long as you both know how to accept your mistakes, apologize and move on.

A healthy relationship can speak honestly with each other, no lies, no secrets. Marriage is give and take, both need to help around the house no matter how busy each other in their job. Don't stop surprising each other, small or big thing can be a surprise everyday. We don't need an anniversary or occasion to show love with each other. Everyday  can be a special day for the partners. It is normal to be abnormal once in a while. Keep things fun by making your partner laugh and feel love with your natural act like silly song and dance.

If you have any of these things, your relationship will last for a long time.

Burnt Movie Review

“Burnt” is a story of a young Chef’s relapse and recovery. After 3 years of out of work, Chef Adam (Bradley Cooper) returned to Paris and was determined to have the best restaurant in the world.

He started building up his dream kitchen brigade by hiring old friends and enemies. Tony (Bruhl), hands over his present fine-dining establishment to Adam, Sous chef Michel (Omar Sy), Italian ex-con Max (Riccardo Scamarcio), Reece (Matthew Rhys). He also hires new crew Helene (Sienna Miller), chef de partie and David (Sam Keeley).

Chef Adam is a perfectionist when it comes to food preparation. He scolds his fellow chefs for not meeting his standards, “If it’s not perfect, you throw it away!” He is one of the very gifted man behaving very badly. He throw tantrums, smashes plates if his staff did not meet his expectation. He only cares about the thrill of creating explosions of taste, to turn a decent meal into something truly memorable, and mind-blowing. And of course, the fancy dishes and desserts needs a restaurant critic, played by Uma Thurman.

The movie showed how demanding and nerve- wracking the culinary world is. It captures the energy of the chefs inside the professional kitchen. It shows how food had been prepared and cooked to create a superb meal. We learned that the best chefs aren't just great with a knife and passion for cooking, but also have a lot of patience and determination to run a successful restaurant. As a culinary arts student, I can relate to the pressure in the kitchen and of course the “Yes Chef.” All in all, the movie is entertaining and well-acted.

Rating: 4 star.

Money Management Tips for OFW

 Everybody knows the importance of saving but actually doing it is still a very difficult task for most Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW). OFW families tend to over spend for may reasons. To make the task of saving easier, here are some money-saving tips that you may want to follow.

Pay yourself first. After receiving your salary, before buying anything or paying the bill, set aside 10% of the money for savings. Put up bank account where this money will be kept as a savings for future business or investment. Every payday and do this right after receiving your salary.

Acquire property. It doesn't matter how big or small it is. If you don't have cash money to pay in full, one way is to pay it in terms or installment plan. There are a lot of properties affordable to OFWs. Monthly payments depend on how much you can afford it. Instead of spending money monthly on vices or things that we really not needed why not set aside money for monthly payment. After years, you have something you can be proud of from your hard work abroad.
