Stormy Tuesday!

I left work early because the weather's really bad.  The rain was tolerable but the wind was ferocious! My lovable brother sent me the cutest SMS just when I was about to go home- "Sis, lakas ng hangin! Maglagay ka ng hollow blocks sa bulsa mo baka liparin ka sa payat mo! Text me when you're home na."

When I got home, the power was out! It was a good thing that I had my laptop fully charged and I have a few candles in stock.  So here I am on a stormy Tuesday, eating goto with egg while watching Horrible Bosses on my computer.  Hehe!

Keep safe and dry people!!!!!

Kwentong Barbero

When I get extremely sad and frustrated, the first thing I want to do is go to the salon and get a haircut.  Maybe because it's my way of (figuratively) cutting the bad omen that's happening in my life. There were a few times where I had my hair cut just for the sake of.  But most of the time, it was because I was going through a bad phase and I felt like I wanted to cut the bad streak.

I had my hair chopped off last year. I was going through some shitty times and I want to start anew.  So what better way to do it than to start with a new look, right?

So here I was Christmas of last year with my short hair.  To me, a haircut is more than just a haircut.  It is my way of cutting ties with the bad things that's holding me down.  It is my way of disconnecting.  It is my way of starting anew.  Of seeing things in a different light.  It is my way of starting fresh.

I learned to focus on the things that truly matter. I reconnected with people who really care. I focused on my work. I focused on my family.  And everything feels lighter and better now.

I was brushing my hair in front of the mirror the other day and it just dawned on me how long my hair is now compared to what it was 9 months ago.  I feel blessed that life hasn't given me reasons to cut my hair anew. Hehehe.

I wish you all a happy week ahead!

I took a day off from work yesterday.  Ran a few errands and then spent the afternoon bonding with my parents. Did a bit of shopping for my mom too. Grabe, ang mahal ng shoes nya. Parang ndi muna ko kakaen ng 4 months. Hahahaha. Pero okay lang, priceless naman yung saya nya. :)

And then I spent the evening bonding with a friend.  We had a good massage. Sarap! I slept during the rub-down and when I woke up, I felt rejuvenated. Yey!

After the massage, my friend and I had dinner somewhere in Quezon City. I was wearing blue maong shorts and a blue shirt yesterday and to my surprise, the waitresses in the restaurant were also wearing the same thing. HAHAHAHAHA!


Have a great weekend everyone!

The Raket Diaries: Cafe Puccini

Have you guys seen Cars 2 yet? If you still haven't, make it your number 1 mission this coming weekend! Disney Pixar didn't disappoint. I don't like watching animated films, especially when it's in 3D because I get a mild headache after. (Probinsyana kase ko, ndi sanay sa 3D glasses, lol.) But because it's from Disney, and it's Cars, I don't mind getting a little buzz-ed.

A couple of weekends back, I hosted a party in Cafe Puccini in the Fort.  It was the birthday of this cute little boy named Samou. The whole cafe was closed to give way to his birthday party and because they were Japanese, they just want to downplay the decorations. They just asked for yellow and white balloons to be placed in each table. Simple but cute.

 They prepared Cars-themed prizes and loot bags for the kids. 

The kids were too cute! They were mostly Japanese so it's a good thing that I speak Japanese Ingrish. Hahahahaha!

I am resting from my hosting rakets for awhile because sometimes I do back-to-back parties on weekends, wala nang time para mag rest. Baka mamatay ako ng maaga, ahahahaha! But I miss it. I miss seeing the smile on the kid's faces. I miss playing with them. Withdrawal syndrome ata tawag nila dito. Or sign of aging? Hehehe!

Happy Monday people!

I believe in miracles! 

And when I say miracles, I'm not referring to the life-changing, look-ma-i-can-walk-now or WTF-i-dont-have-cancer-anymore-allelujah kind! Hehehehe. I believe in small, everyday miracles that happen to each of us.

Sometimes we refer to it as luck.

Sometimes we call it right timing.

I choose to believe that a miracle happened (to me) today.

I'm going through a very interesting phase.  I'm in the process of growing and learning and reinventing. I'm trying to carve out my niche. So anyway, today's a very big day for me.

And just when I thought that I was already kicking-ass, something happened! Something stupid happened. And it was all my fault!!!!!!

I have been trusted to take that one big shot and I missed!

Parang gusto ko sampalin yung sarili ko kase ang tanga ko! *major face-palm moment*

I prayed. And in my prayer, I told Him "Lord, I just want you to know na gustong-gusto ko tong something na to. Kung para po sya saken, please give it to me. Kung hindi naman, I would understand."

Syempre sinabe ko talaga sa kanya na gustong-gusto ko talaga yun para ma-pressure sya! Hahahaha! Joke lang Lord. :)

I was already half-accepting a negative turn-out. I was already thinking of buying a big bottle of Red Horse and ten packs of Boy Bawang! Hahahahaha! Or if they don't have beers in stock, bibili nalang ako ng blade at kalamansi! Hahahahahahaha!

Red Horse - Chocolate Flavor.

Kumabaga sa relasyon, andun nako sa process of "Acceptance", hahaha! Ambilis. LOL.



I just received a good news awhile ago.

Mukhang natuwa naman sila sa katangahan ko. :) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! In other words, I'm off to my next adventure.

And it's going to happen this Monday. It's really something major and I'm glad that they're giving me this weekend to prepare.

Thank you, Lord!

So this weekend, goodbye muna ang lakwatsa! Goodbye muna ang DVD marathon! Goodbye muna ang kaartehan! Goodbye muna ang lahat-lahat! Kelangan kong mag-aral ng mabuti at mag-focus.

I couldn't afford to make another mistake this Monday. This is a make-or-break.

Pray for me ha? :) Para lalong ma-pressure si Lord, hahahahaha!

Abot-tenga yung ngiti ko now. Parang ganito. =)))))

Hope you all get your dose of miracle today!!!!!!!

Suggestions Please?

I came home early from work because I need to finish a school project that's due this week. But instead of working on it the minute I got home, I found myself in front of my laptop checking what movies to download in Torrent. Hehe. So here's what's currently on my list -

1. 3 Idiots
2. Shawshank Redemption
3. Limitless
4. Fast 5
5. Bad Teacher

What are your favorite movies? Maybe I can get ideas from you guys. I'm running out of books to read that's why I'm stocking up on good movies that I can watch this coming weekend.

(Please no Harry Potters or LOTRs. Lol!)


Thank you! :)

You Got a Friend

Today I've been witness to how cruel love can be. How it drives people to become manipulative and self-serving. Today I've seen how love can break hearts.

Today, God gave me the opportunity to become a good friend to someone. To be a shoulder to cry on. To be able to talk about love, pain, and moving on. 

Today, I was given the opportunity to reverse the role. To be the comforter. To be the advise-giver. To appease and assure that everything will work out just fine.

Today, God gave me the opportunity to pay it forward. He gave me this opportunity to return back the favor for all of the moving and heart-warming gestures that have been extended to me when I was down and out.

You will find your way out of this rough patch, my friend.

I should know. Been there, done that.

Let's try to do random acts of kindness everyday! Have a great week everyone! Mwah x

What's Up, Ketchup?

Christmas is just three months away. I am not a millionaire (and not even close to being one) so I only have a special list of people who I give gifts to every Christmas. At the top of the list are my pamangkins -  I have 3 nieces and 3 nephews.

For the past two (or was it three?) Christmases, I haven't bought them anything special. I just gave them money so they can buy whatever they want to buy. I am a bad aunt, I know. So this year, I want to make it up to them by giving them real gifts. And by real gifts, I mean, usable and practical and wrapped gifts. Hahaha. Because I know how special Christmas is for kids, right? And I know how they anticipate un-wrapping their presents.

I started my Christmas list a couple of days ago, and I bought gifts already for two of my nieces. I still don't know what to get my nephews. Ang hirap mag-isip ng gifts para sa mga boys =( I don't watch TV that much so I don't know what's the 'in' thing for teenagers nowadays. Hmmmmm... They might kill me if I buy them anything Justin-Bieber. Hahahahahhaa!

I remember one Christmas when I couldn't decide what to get for all 6 of them. So what I bought for them was these rubber shoes that had built-in rollers in them. It was what most of the parents were buying at that time so it gave me the idea that that was the 'in' thing for the bagets. Luckily, they all loved it. Hehe. Ndi nila alam, naki-usyoso lang ako sa kung san maraming mga bumibili sa mall.

Anyway, I didn't leave the mall without buying something for myself too! I like quirky, crazy stuff. So when I saw these shoes in the mall, I knew that I had to get them. Parang feeling ko ginawa talaga sya para sa mga loka-lokang kagaya ko. Hahahahaha!

Brogues + rubber = LOVE!

When I wore it the next day, my friends all said the same thing - "It's sooooo you!". I don't know if it's an insult or a compliment though, ahahahahhahaha!!!!! 

Anyway, what have you guys been up to lately? 

Don't forget to include me in your Christmas shopping, okay? :)

K : Ang sama ng pakiramdam ko. =( Magkakaron na ata ako.

Officemate : Huh? Wag ka naman sanang biglang datnan ngayon dito sa opisina.

K : Bakit naman?

Officemate : Kasi puti yung blouse mo, tapos yellow yung pants mo, tapos blue yung shoes mo. Kapag nagkaron ka ng pula sa likod, para ka nang bandila ng Pilipinas.

K : Hahahahaha! Gago!

The Peeping Tom

Who is Tom? And why is he so popular? Hahaha. So what does this slang term mean and where did it originate?

Peeping Tom is a nickname commonly given to voyeurs, particularly males. It originated with the, in the legend of Lady Godiva, when a man named Tom watched her during her nude ride and was struck blind or dead. [wikipedia]

People who personally know me knows how long it takes for me to finish a meal.  Super lakas ko kumaen pero super bagallllllll. I love taking mini-breaks in between. I don't do it deliberately but it's just how I am. I like to relish my dining experience -  whether it be in a nice restaurant, a yummy fastfood joint or my favorite turo-turo. Hehehe. 

I was an hour early for a lunch meet-up with a friend. We agreed to meet in The Fort. I was super hungry the moment I got there but since we were planning to have lunch together, I just decided to eat something light. Pampalipas-gutom muna while waiting. So I ordered burger and fries in Burger Avenue.

I was scanning the area, looking for familiar faces and when I looked up I realized that there's a Fitness First on the 2nd floor. And what's even better was I can see right through the glass of people who were working out.

I got fixated on this guy and before I knew it, ubos ko na pala ang burger ko! Hahahahahaha! I think naubos ko sya in 7minutes! World record!!!!! 

*** After 7 minutes ***

Nagutom kase ko bigla sa nakita ko, hahahahahaha! 

Does that make me a Peeping Tom? What you guys think?

If John Doe has a female equivalent in the form of Jane Doe, what is it for Peeping Tom?

Sirit na?

Peeping Pepe! :) Hehehehe! Yes, that's what I am.
