This is my way of reminding myself of the little things that recently made me happy as inspired by Helga.

  1. 10 hours of sleep. We had to drive to Pangasinan after my 1pm-10pm shift to attend our friend’s dad’s wake. I was awake for more than 36 hours straight and I felt so drained. When I got home, I had 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Having more than 5 hours of sleep is already such a luxury for me.
  2. Our wi-fi router at home finally got fixed. We had a power interruption in the building during the heavy rains and our router somehow got busted. We had no wi-fi for 4 days and I had to make do with my mobile data while eternally being bugged that Globe might cap me off anytime and decrease my browsing speed. LOL #firstworldproblems
  3. People paying me up. Someone who owed me money finally paid up! She was 6 months delayed with her payment, grabe!  I hate lending money because I always feel awkward when I need to ask them to pay up. Ugh.
  4. My new powerbank. I need a powerbank for when I’m out and I use my mobile data. Turning on my mobile data sucks the life out of my phone. And I think it’s quite a steal at Phph795 only for 10050 mAh (whatever that means LOL.) Yay!
  5. Subway sandwiches. This is my go-to lunch for when I’m in a rush to get to work. It is very convenient and way healthier than other usual fastfood choices.
  6. Securing our accommodation in Bohol. Cris and I will be travelling to Bohol in 2 weeks and I finally decided where to stay. We already paid 50% of our bill therefore securing our desired beach-front room. Yay!
  7. Writing down a list of goals for August. I decided to be more productive and drafted a list of things I want to accomplish next month. Here’s to making this year a greater one than it already is.
  8. YouTube karaoke. I have been bugging my friends to go to a KTV restaurant and sing cheesy 90’s pop music but our schedules just does not sync up! Thanks to YouTube, I get to sing my lungs out (with accompaniment) while taking my shower. LOL
  9. Travel plans. I am cooking up a backpacking trip with a good friend whose birthday is just a few days earlier than mine. If we push through, it will be my birthday getaway even if I will already be back on my actual birthday LOL. Maipilit lang…
  10. Today’s Japanese lunch. It’s the third week in a row that my Friday lunchout is at a Japanese restaurant. And I love it! We tried out a new resto around the office area – TENYA – which serves bomb tempura bowls. If it isn’t obvious by now, I love Japanese food.

AKA another video of me stuffing my face with delicious food. LOL. This time, Cris and I ate at Pho Hoa in SM Megamall. I actually frequent Pho Hoa especially during the rainy days. It was a very rainy Sunday afternoon so we decided to have our early dinner there to help warm out tummies. Check out the video below.

 

You can also check out our first episode of my Dead Hungry series below. Here, we ate at Eri Curry (also in SM Megamall).

I have been extremely busy these past few weeks hence the unintentional hiatus. Work was crazy due to movements in the team and the little downtime I had, I chose to spend on catching up on sleep. I wasn’t THAT physically tired but it sure felt like my brain was FRIED. But anyway, I am trying to slowly get back on track with the blog. I am currently stuck at home with a slight fever and an upset stomach so this post serves as a good distraction. So here is the week’s list.

  1. Cris and I very rarely go to malls (I tend to avoid malls because PEOPLE, ’nuff said) so I was quite adamant when he said he wanted to have our date-night at SM Megamall. I gave in and we had a lovely dinner at a curry house. Then he dragged me to the appliance store and bought me an oven! I have always wanted one but keep putting off buying one for no apparent reason and now he finally did it for me. Brownie points for the man! 🙂
  2. I love eating out and trying out new restaurants. This weekend, Cris and I got to try out the food at Eri Curry and decided to film our meal.I started a ~web series~ on my YouTube channel and named it Dead Hungry, which directly and aptly translates to Patay Gutom LOL. If you’re keen on watching us stuff our faces with delicious curry, I’d appreciate it if you watch the video below.

  1. Some friends decided to come over to our condo unit and cooked up a feast for us.We had buttered garlic shrimp, halaan soup, buttered veggies and fried whole fish. YUM!
  2. To commemorate June as PRIDE Month, we staged a mini-concert at work featuring employee talents and a ~celebrity guest~. We invited over Rita from The Voice Philippines and she was great. My group also performed two songs that show support to the LGBT community. 
  3. Free food! My team won around Php10K from another event and we decided to celebrate by ordering lunch for everyone. Free food is always good LOL.
  4. It’s time for our Midyear Performance Evaluation and I am so glad to hear good feedback from both my supervisor and manager. I have been working my butt off extra hard this year and it just feels good to be validated.
  5. Finding girlfriends who share your opinions and beliefs.Whether it be towards social media, money, relationships, work or whatever.
  6. A friend from work recently went to Boracay and I am so happy he obliged to buy mea box of Calamansi Muffins from Real Coffee. I have been having it for breakfast with a cup of coffee and  it just starts my day off at the right note.
  7. My company provides car service to employees who leave work after 10pm. I always work way past the time and it’s just so nice to not worry about getting home safe and sound. Not to mention the savings I incur. I swear, cab money has been burning a hole in my pocket.
  8. I finally watched the finale of iZombie 1! I love it and I can’t wait for the next season to start.

 

Around two weeks ago, Vlad mentioned that he was planning on a weekend getaway with his High School friends. Since I was also free, I happily tagged along.

They initially planned on going to Cagbalete but a storm signal was raised on Thursday and the Coast Guard were not allowing boats to sail off. Everyone else was hell bent on hanging out at the port and wait til the Coast Guard raises the sailing ban. However, given my previous mishap with Quezon’s Coast Guard, I insisted we settle with a different beach. Our Plan B was Kuwebang Lampas and that is where we spent our Saturday night at.

We broke camp early on Sunday and after a very filling brunch at a floating restaurant, we made our way to Kamay ni Hesus. They persuaded me to climb up to the very top (never again LOL) and then we rewarded ourselves with Pancit Habhab at Buddy’s (Lucban.)

I managed to capture most of the weekend on video and condensed it in a 4 minute montage. Check it out below.

 

Have you ever been camping? Where is your favorite camping spot?

 

This year’s Holy Week vacation, I brought along Cris and our friends (Tina and Timmy) back to my hometown – Ilocos Norte. I took them to places my family usually visit when I am home or if we have visitors over. Most of the places we visited are at most 10 minutes away from home, including the small mountain/hill that we climbed to get a sweeping view of the newly-erected windmills in our town. I also took them to the infamous Paoay Church and Malacañang of the North. Please watch the video below – though Youtube butchered the video quality. Enjoy! 🙂

 

Have you ever been to Ilocos Norte? What is your favorite tourist spot to visit there?

 

Call your girlfriend, it’s time you had the talk
Give your reasons, say it’s not her fault
But you just met somebody new

Tell her not to get upset
Second guessing everything, you said and done
And then when she gets upset tell her
How you never mean to hurt no one

Then you tell her that the only way her heart will mend
Is when she learns to love again
And it won’t make sense right now
But you’re still her friend and then you let her down easy

 

*Robyn is so quirky. I like quirky. 🙂

 

If you were not amused by the song (and the video!), you are one uptight person. LOL. 😀

I have been super busy with work the past 2 weeks and this blog suffered. I’m trying to bring back my blogging mojo though, so things are looking up.

Cheers to a good week ahead! 🙂
