Hello There.

Hi blog.. It's been three years since my last post. Alot of things have changed since then.

So what happened to me in those three years? Hmmmm.. I got a haircut, got my hair colored, i loved, i got my heart broken, dated a few men, bonded with friends, kept in constant touch with my family, learned how to drive, got promoted at work, got assigned to a provincial site, got a car, sold a car, bought another car, learned alot about leadership, got an acquarium, i exercised, tried to start a diet a few times but failed, tried to go back to blogging but failed, went on awesome foodie adventures, drank, got sober, made new friends, kept in touch with friends from way back, disconnected myself from toxic people, went to the beach, walked along the edge of a 33storey building, discovered myself, resigned from work, got out of my comfort zone, fell in love, learned how to cook ox tongue.

ALOT OF THINGS HAVE CHANGED. And I want to start this blog once again to chronicle my journey.

Welcome to me! :)

This year has been nothing short of excellent. I'm at a point in my life where I am exactly where I want to be. Everything 's turning out good that I'm starting to get scared that I'll do one stupid thing and mess it all up.

But I think being scared is a good thing. It keeps me grounded. It reminds me that I am not invincible. I still crack under pressure. But honestly, I like it. I like being challenged. I like being pushed beyond my abilities.

It's been a great year and I can't thank the heavens enough.

Keep safe and dry people! :)

Oil, Coffee and Constancy

Yesterday was my mom's birthday so my siblings and I prepared a hearty lunch at home for mom. Had a very fun bonding time with the entire family. Hayyyy, sarap talaga to gather everyone together and just spend it catching up on each other's lives and kulitan with the bulilits.

I really treasure moments spent with my family.

I ate alot during the party that I was craving to end the day with a yummy dessert to cleanse my palate from oil and grease.

The party ended close to midnight but it's a good thing that I was still able to squeeze a dessert and coffee date with someone.  Our original plan was to go to Podium to have coffee and milk at Borough's. But since we were both from QC,  we tried driving around the Timog and West Ave. area and we chanced upon this 24hours coffee shop. The cake we ordered tasted like chalk and the coffee seemed like it was brewed out of rubber. Blech! Haha. But I still had a great night because I was with good company. After that, we had a massage. Twas soooo good that I fell asleep halfway through it. Nagising nalang ako nung tapos na. Hehe. Twas a great way to cap the weekend.

You know how sometimes you get attracted to a person because he reminds you of someone from your past?

Not that I'm not yet over my ex. And don't get me wrong because I am not superficial. Just so happened that this ex was gwapo and nice and this guy I went out with is like a better version of him. Parang iphone - the ex was an iphone4 and this guy's like an iphone4s. Hahahahaha! But anyway, as much as we like spending time together, he's due to go abroad for work so our happy days are numbered. Oh well.

I've been single for quite awhile and am pretty set in my ways pero there are times when I miss having a constant presence in my life. I have a good career that I'm really thankful for but I have moments when I'm so stressed with work that I just want to end the day with a warm hug and good conversation over dinner. And I just want to do it with one special person.

I go out on dates with good men, don't get me wrong (I really have to put this disclaimer just in case one of them finds their way to my blog, haha!). But sometimes I just want to see a constant face amongst the sea of faces. A constant presence. Although I'm a modern woman and I like exploring my options, my inner-Maria Clara is screaming and is looking to settle for just one. The right one. The only one.

I pray and ask God to grant me my most fervent wishes but a great lovelife isn't one of them. Parang feeling ko I would really sound so selfish if I do that because he he has already gifted me with a loving family, great friends and a good career. Asking for a lovelife would be overkill. Lol!

I'm having a really weird day today. It's been such a long time since I've bared my soul in this blog. Anyway, maybe I'm just PMS-ing.

Work-life Balance

Things at work has been reaalllyyyy crazy the past few weeks. We launched a couple of new projects plus I hired four additional people to join my team.

So the past few weeks have been nothing but training and mentoring and coaching and adjusting. I feel like I'm their work mom. Haha! Challenging pala maging nanay sa maraming anak. Lol!

To break the monotony of our never-ending work and reports and quotas and analysis, I treated my team to dinner last night. We just ate and laughed and we talked about other things aside from work. Yehey! Kakarelax!

I had a major food binge din last Saturday plus I had a massage to prepare me for another work week. Weekend is still 2 days awayyyyyy. I cannot wait for this week to end so I can catch up on my e-Books!

Hope everyone's having a productive week!!!

I had a very good day. It started this afternoon when I had lunch with my family to celebrate Father's Day. My mom really makes an effort to prepare home-cooked meals during Sunday gatherings. But because it was Father's Day, she just decided to order food. Andameng food na naorder that we ate it for lunch and then the left-over we ate for dinner. Haha!

I spent the day bonding with my siblings, pamangkins and parents. My brother recently got promoted so everyone was happy and proud of him. I like how we all support each other. Nakakaaliw to be in a family where they treat your success as their success. My dad was a bit worried because super payat ko daw. Oh well, pressure from work plus lots of puyat really took a toll on me. But what can I do. Ganun talaga, hehe. My dad kept on telling me to eat more.

It was raining like crazy by the time we decided to go home. I have dinner plans with someone so when my brother learned that I will go to Morato, he insisted to drive for me. Sweet no? Maybe because it was really raining hard plus naawa sya kasi punit punit yung suot kong shorts. Haha!

When I was about to go down the car, my brother told me "Take care my little sis, alright?". Awwwww, too cute! Eventhoug Im old as a carabao, my family still sees me as a little girl. Cute beyond words!!!!

Dinner with my friend went great. Getting-to-know conversations are always fun! Ive sworn off dating after my last relationship. Maybe because Ive become more cautious and more guarded of my emotions. Pero lately, I'm back in the dating scene. Meeting new friends.. Going out with interesting people. I'm having a great time. :)

It's nice to feel appreciated and treated like you're the most beautiful person in the world. Lol! Cheesy. Haha. Dinners out, late-night conversations, telebabad to the max after spending the whole day together. Haha. I feel like I'm in highschool again. Lol!!!!!

Dating is fun because it opens a world of possibilities. I just wish that whoever I'll end up with will be as caring and as sweet as my daddy and brother. Wishful thinking! Hahaha!

Call me, maybe?

Lol! Arte!

Have a great start of the week, everyone!!!!
