Intramuros (Latin, “within the walls”) is the oldest district and historic core of the City of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Also called the Walled City, the original citadel of Manila was the seat of government when the Philippines were acomponent realm of the Spanish Empire. Districts beyond the walls were referred as the extramuros of Manila, meaning “outside the walls”.

Wow! January is almost over! Is it just me or do you also feel like we’re all running out of time? Sometimes, it seems as if there’s just not enough time in the world for all the things that we want to do.

After saying that, let me just say that my past week seemed too boring. LOL. Like there was not much to do. Though I knew in my heart that I have lots of stuff that needs to be done but I am putting off indeterminately.

January 15: Sleepless nights are bugging me again. That usually means doubling up on the caffeine intake: so aside from the usual (double dose) coffee, green apple comes to the rescue. Lately, I’ve been favoring green apples over the red ones. I don’t know why, but maybe I’m just liking their tanginess. During dinners, I have the weirdest cravings. Case in point, I wanted Jollibee spaghetti and lumpiang shanghai. Oh evil junk, why are they so good?!? Then when I got home after work, I spent more than four hours cleaning the house. Something’s wrong with me…

January 16: Received the official invitation from SENATE to sing in one of their sessions. I AM SO EXCITED!!! LOL. The choir has opened up some opportunities for me that I never thought I would come across with. On February alone, we have two singing gigs. That is awesome, but also means we need to put in more time for rehearsals. Phew! My team at work have regular weekly meetings. I casually mentioned that I am liking Starbucks’ full leaf teas lately so we decided to hold our meeting there. We all ordered tea, hence our catch-up being dubbed as a TEAm Meeting. Witty!

January 17: This Friday is painfully boring. Peppered with lots of junk goodies. Reese’s peanut butter cups are my ultimate favorite chocolates. Anything with peanut butter, I would gladly devour. KFC’s chicken is also one of my favorite fried chicken in all the fried chickens out there. Fuuuuuuu! I’m making myself hungry. 😦

January 18: I finally had the time to go the mall and check out home appliances. Bit the bullet and got a Condura refrigerator. You don’t understand how much this makes me happy! LOL. Spent most of the day walking around Megamall and came home tired I just wanted to plop down my bed which looks like an explosion of prints, hahaha! And if you are keen, you gotta try that drink. It’s like drinking wine without the alcohol content. It’s pretty nice.

January 19: Most of my day was wasted in bed, watching random Youtube videos. I just couldn’t resist my blanket. It’s soooo soooo soft! It’s so fluffy and soft and so warm haha! Then I finally tried this tea from Human Nature. It’s good, definitely tastes healthy. And while watching flip top battles (I know, random! haha), I painted my nails this cute pink color. SO NOT ME!!!

January 20: I had to work the 2pm-11pm shift because I was waiting for the SM guys to deliver my fridge. FINALLY! I have a new fridge!!! Hello, healthy living! OR NOT. Haha! But I’ll definitely be cooking again and I will try my very best to eat healthier. Allan came back to work after a week of being sick and he misses me so much he just showers me with fruits. LOL. Seriously though, everyone’s giving me fruits today. Weird…

January 21: Because I have a fridge now, I woke up pretty early to go to the wet market and buy fresh goodies that I will be cooking all throughout the week. I finally brought packed lunch again after a very long time. And people find me weird for loving okra so much. I don’t know man, I love that shit! LOL. But maybe not as much as I love sriracha. Hahaha! I put it on everything! Even on my siopao which was my dinner that day.

image

 

Then I had dessert at our usual hangout place: Breakfast in Bed. Brownie à la mode. I liked the brownie and the vanilla ice cream, but I feel like the chocolate syrup was an overkill. Diabetes!!!

How was your week like?

 

 

 

My Week in Photos (WiP) recap is one week late this time. Life happened. And by life, I mean foodtrip sessions with friends. LOL. This week has been filled with food and clingy friends and much more food. I have grown into a big round ball of happiness. LOL

January 8: Today, I booked a flight to ***. I don’t wanna disclose just yet where I’m headed but I am so excited for new adventures this year. I finally got the corporate giveaway given to employees as a thanksgiving token last Christmas and it further fueled my desire for travel. It’s a “universal adapter” with more than 5 different socket types. Pretty nifty! After work, headed to CGS for dinner at our usual spot: Breakfast in Bed (which I have to blog about because I have been there more than 5 times for the past month).

January 9: Used my new scarf which I bought from Ilocos. It comes in a nice shade of pink (bordering tan) which is so NOT ME! LOL. I also missed my supposed New Year dinner with Lorraine and Ren but I was able to have dinner with the Boni Crew. Had delicious and MSG loaded dinner at Mr. Choi that made me very sleepy immediately after eating. Decided to grab tea from Starbucks before heading home to keep me up just for a bit longer because I didn’t wanna sleep with a full tummy and might end up dying. LOL. I don’t even know if there’s a scientific basis for that.

January 10: Payday Friday! 🙂 Had lunch at McDonald’s because we wanted to take advantage of their New Year deal. 2 pcs fried chicken for just Php95, I’ll take that! Hehe. To help get through the afternoon slump, grabbed milktea from Chatime. It is the most effective upper for me.

January 11: Stayed home all day (well ate least while the sun was still up). Met up with the Boni Crew for dinner at Tok-Yu. Tok-yu is golden. If you want ramen and sashimi for cheap, head on over there. For dessert, we crossed over to Chatime. Turned out to be a bad move because I ended up sleeping close to 4am. Their tea is potent, I tell you.

January 12: MAGINHAWA FOODTRIP!!! It was an afternoon full of food. So much food!!! Watch out for my blog posts about the restaurants that we visited. Our first stop was CRAZY KATSU which I wrote about here: click me!

January 13: Worked the 12pm-9pm shift and availed of the company car service for the first time this year. I was only able to take photos while waiting for the car to arrive. While browsing Instagram, I saw photos of the moon everywhere. There was some phenomenon happening and the moon actually looked pretty. Such a shame it didn’t actually show in my photo.

January 14: Today is my mom’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Mama! ♥♥♥ Was not able to celebrate with her ‘coz I’m away from home but I uttered a tiny prayer for her health and wellness. Speaking of health, look at all the junk food in the office hahaha. And I was really amused with the Ma’am Inasal one (a play on the original Mang Inasal). I left work early and got stuck in traffic; at least my cab looked like a party of some sort with all the lights hehe. And the reason I battled traffic was to get myself a good piece of Tbone steak. We also had milktea after dinner. Oh boy, I really am hooked on milkteas.

This week was full of food, hahaha! So much about getting fit this year, eh?

 

Since I haven’t blogged in a long time (no shit, Sherlock), I decided to do a photo-a-day challenge to get out of this blogging rut. So I consulted good ol’ Google and clicked on the first one that linked me to the August challenge.

Click photo for original post

So for the first day, below is my entry.

NOTES – all sorts of notes littering my office table. Notepads, notebooks and music notes.

I hope to keep this up and finally get my blogging mojo back. Cheers!

P.S.: It’s my birthday month. Yey!
