I have been dreaming of opening up a small business of our own, and yesterday, that dream finally came true. My dad lent me and my hubby Php 10,000 as starting capital days ago, and we used portion of it to buy some cup noodles. And yesterday, my husband and my mom collaborated and cooked rice and 2 viands – Adobong Atay at Balunbalunan and Monggo. It was my first day taking in a 2-day training for the company’s newest service line (ooh… PIONEER!!!). Anyways, once I got home, the food were already cooked and there was already one order. So being excited of the launched, I hurriedly went home right after my last business review with my previous team captain (I’m really gonna miss her! ), and waited for upcoming orders.
My husband needed to buy additional plates so he left me with the service. And there was this order for Adobong Atay at Balunbalunan but was asking for only Atay (chicken liver, I’m not sure what the other one is in English). Honestly, I love cooking and all, but when it comes with Filipino foods, failure is my game. I didn’t know how to distinguish one from the other! LOL! But thanks to our helper, who brought the orders to the customers, he was able to teach me and differentiate them to me… How embarrasing! HAHAHA! But at least I learned something. Hehe… As a result, our first day was a blast! We sold them all before 4PM and had to tell customers that we already ran out of food.
Today, we are serving Nilagang Baka (Beef Soup), Pritong Isda (Fried Fish), and Adobong Sitaw (Stewed String Beans). We still have a couple of servings left, so we decided to serve them for dinner as well. Hopefully, we’ll be making a lot from this small business and would finally be stable in life with recurring income.
