This week was mainly spent on catching up. Catching up with friends, celebrations, and fitness goals.

January 29: Second session of our self-imposed Wellness Wednesday. We worked hard all right! And more people joined the group as well. Here’s to hoping we get to sustain this.

January 30: Last working day of the week because tomorrow is the celebration of the Chinese New Year. Caught up with Allan over Starbucks coffee (their new drink btw – Chestnut Macchiato – is good, try it!). Met up with Timmy and chatted ’til wee hours. We never run out of stuff to talk about.

January 31: Brunch at Slice N’ Dice because we ended up waking up just a little before noon. It had been ages since I last ate here and I actually missed their baked tahong. Noms! Watched a PBA game at Araneta Coliseum and our team won. Go Ginebra! Lol

February 1: Welcoming the new month with an out-of-town getaway. We drove up to Tagaytay to celebrate Jo and Neri’s birthdays. Before going to our hotel, we had lunch at Breakfast at Antonio’s. (Yummy food! Watch out for a separate entry.) We ended up checking in to our hotel at a little before 4pm because traffic was freaking horrible. Ugh!

February 2: It was definitely not Tagaytay weather when we woke up. The sun was in full force and our hotel pool looked very inviting. Too bad I was feeling sick so I didn’t get the chance to have a quick dip. Before heading back to Manila, we stocked up on local goodies from the market and filled our grumbling tummies with bulalo goodness. As expected, traffic was still disgustingly horrible. Ugh!

February 3: I was feeling horrible when I woke up so I decided to call in sick at work. Spent the day alternating between napping and watching old movies. And I got a taste of one of the weirdest tasting ice cream I’ve had in my life, so far. It’s apparently made of carabao milk with bits of kesong puti. All it tasted to me was frozen margarine. Blech!

February 4: I was feeling a bit better so I went back to work armed with my trusty calamansi juice. For further reinforcement, I filled it with lemon slices. Take that, Vitamin C! LOL. I attended choir rehearsal even if I was hacking like crazy because I missed last week’s practice. Gotta hustle!

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.
