2017 Week 30: Working Weekend…Not
July 24-30, 2017
The system is ready for testing. Unfortunately, there are a lot of bugs and the user interface is not seamless yet. Hopefully, it stabilizes after all those findings last week.
And so, I was supposed to do some testing last Sunday. However, when I was about to start, electricity went off. Hence, I decided to just go to the mall and unwind a bit.
Unwinding means an early dinner at Yellow Cab and watching 2 movies hehehe. My friend was available so she joined me.
We watched Finally Found Someone. I cried the most at the scenes with JLC and his mom and siblings. #medyorelate #medyopagod
We also watched Cars 3. Well, the movie reminded us that my friend and I are getting old and that maybe one of the things we should be doing now is coaching. I have some coaching sessions sometimes at work but not much. Anyway…
My friend came from Bacolod and gave me some goodies – napoleones and cheese bars. It was my first time to taste napoleones and it is so yummy!!!! Napoleones is a layered puff pastry with custard cream filling and with glazed white sugar on top. I saw a 2011 article saying that this is available at Roli’s bakeshop stall at SM Megamall. I am not sure if it’s still there but it’s worth checking out hehe.
I also did 2 batches of laundry, mended some clothes, and ironed all office clothes. I usually do the ironing on weekends because I hate ironing one at a time, worst during weekdays.
My nephew has completed his OJT. He already went home but he’ll be back next week to get his other stuff. I hope he learned a lot.
My officemate started her training to becoming a registered financial planner. Their speaker last Saturday was Mr. Efren Ll. Cruz. I asked her to let him sign my copy of the book he authored and she was able to do it. I’m ecstatic! I have his book for almost a decade now.
Thank you, Sir for that message. Still working on improving my financial standing hehe.
I watched some videos about capsule wardrobe last Saturday. I was inspired to 1) double check again (because I’ve decluttered at least twice this year already) the things I own to make sure that I only keep those that I use and make me happy, 2) have a color palette and style because this in a way helps establish a personal branding and it’s easier to mix and match. I’ll work on #1 in August. For #2, I’ll start when I need to buy new stuff because refreshing my clothing is not practical at this time as all are still in good condition. I still want to get my money’s worth for the items that I have now. I already know the color palette I like. It will be blue, gray, black, white, and maybe blush pink because I think these are the colors that best suit me.
And that’s it. Have a blessed week ahead.
