2017 Week 12: Birthday Celebrations | Realization | Family Bonding
March 20-26, 2017
I’m not sure if there were other issues reported since I left the office last March 22. I’m not checking until now. I just asked some of my teammates to do this and that shoud issues arise. I was touched because they asked me to just enjoy my birthday leave and they’ll take care of everything while I was gone.
Thank you, teammates. Malay nyo paggising ko bukas, feeling generous na ako at bibigay na ako sa ice cream na hinihiling nyo hahahaha!
My “weekend” started last March 23. Thank you, boss for approving my request. I was supposed to work from home on March 24 because of the newly deployed system. But upon learning that there were no issues since I left, I requested my boss to just extend my leave on the 24th. Thanks again, boss!
I have a separate post here for our birthday celebration just because.
On Friday, I brought my niece with me on my errands. She did not have classes so she was free to join me. Her teenager sister had their last day of exams last Friday so she cannot join us.
On Friday night, I told my niece that we can go out on Saturday morning to buy ingredients so that she can bake something that she knows. Ano ang sagot sa akin ng teenager? Ayaw daw nya at di nya feel mag-bake kinabukasan. Naloka ang titang naninibago sa teenager niece hahaha.
But since I still wanted to bond with her kasi teenager na nga and I want to get to know her teenage self, I still asked if she would like to go out on Saturday. Mas gusto daw nya yun. Since this day was for her, I asked her what she wanted to do. Food trip daw. Hanep na yan. May nalalaman na silang food trip ngayon.
So food trip it is on Saturday, but not before she completed her chores at home in the morning. We were able to eat/buy and eat at home 5 out of 8 in the list.
Look at the list! I asked her to be more specific where to eat those kaya ganyan kadetalye hahaha. Wrong spelling lang si siomai :p.
Syempre ang bunsong sutil, di talaga yan magpapatalo sa ate. We asked her to just stay home on Saturday kasi nga naisama ko na sya ng Friday. Aba hindi daw kasi wala naman daw syang nakain sa mga nasa list nung Friday. Iba raw kinain nya. At mas nauna pang maligo at magbihis kesa sa aming dapat lalabas hahaha!
Pero how can tita say no? I’m taking advantage of every opportunity kasing clingy pa sila sa akin because I’m sure darating ang time na di na sila sasama sa akin hahaha!
But actually, the original plan for Saturday was for us to hike Mt. Cabuyao. However, someone died in our barangay and as per practice, we cannot just pass by their home anytime, especially that the burial was last Saturday afternoon. As in, pag dumaan kami don pag uuwi na, we have to make sure that at least na tapos na ang libing. So wag na lang muna. Maybe we can do that on Holy Week instead.
Sunday was lunch with siblings at Good Taste. Ang dami ata namin na-order at medyo malaki ang bill ko. Pero sa dami ng inorder namin, mura pa rin yun sa lagay na yun hahaha. It is always noisy when my nieces and nephew are together but it’s a happy noise so I can tolerate that hahaha.
My childhood friend who now lives in another municipality in Benguet was in Baguio with her son so we met up at church and I asked her to join us for lunch for more chika time hehehehe.
About my realization…the moment I arrived home on Thursday, I felt something that I have been waiting to feel comfortable about for the longest time. I guess it means I’m now ready if ever it happens. We’ll see how it turns out this year.
Ok, I think that is everything for last week.
