2017 Week 1: Back to the Daily Grind
January 2-8, 2017
Ok, so the holidays are over and so we’re back to the daily grind.
I traveled back to Manila on January 2. Thank you, Lord for a safe trip that night.
Work was just picking up from what we all left when most of us went for that much needed break on the last week of December.
I met with my friend’s family on January 3. They are based in SG now and are here for a visit. We ate at Gangnam Wings at SM Megamall. The store is located at the strip, Mega A side. It specializes on Korean fried chicken.
My friend and I met up on Saturday to catch up on some of the MMFF movies. We watched Die Beautiful, Vince & Kath & James and Sunday Beauty Queen.
Paulo Ballesteros (Die Beautiful) would have been beautiful if he was a woman hehehe.
Vince & Kath & James was really for teens hahaha! It was also ok though. We enjoyed laughing at the crowd’s reactions. There were 2 groups who were quite loud. One is obviously rooting for Vince and the other one for James. While it can get irritating at times, we just had fun laughing at them because their reactions to some of the scenes can really be hilarious hehehe.
The most touching movie for me was Sunday Beauty Queen. This is a documentary about OFWs in Hong Kong. I have seen again that life is not really fair and it gets tough and tougher for some of us. Hence, we should always be thankful for all of our blessings, no matter how small these are.
I went to mass on Sunday and then to the mall as I need to replace some blouses and I was hoping to score some from the end of season sale. Mission accomplished as I was able to buy 3 blouses, which was my goal.
Next stop was the grocery for some supplies before going home.
Have a great week ahead.
