April 28 is a special holiday in Metro Manila due to the ASEAN summit. May 1 is also a holiday, making this another long weekend!
I reported to work early today because my ticket reservation is at 2 PM.
There are a few errands this long break. I brought home some work too but that’s fine.
I had baby back ribs and red velvet cake for dinner earlier this evening at Vizco’s, before heading home.
Soft, juicy and flavorful baby back ribs! Php 245.00 if I remember correctly.
Red velvet cake this time. Yummy too! Between Php 90.00-110.00.
Thank you Lord for a flexible work schedule which allows me to come home earlier.
Please guide the ASEAN country leaders as they get together for the summit. May they find common grounds for a peaceful relationship towards building a progressive nation. Amen.
As I mentioned here, I applied for a PLDT myDSL Internet last Saturday. I availed Plan 1299 with 3Mbps but unlimited data volume. This is similar to my friend and she says it’s fast.
I received a text message from PLDT yesterday informing me of my account number and that I need to pay the initial fee of Php 2,300.00 as I opted for a one-time payment for the installation and WIFI modem.
Since I am too lazy to go out and look for a PLDT office or bayad center, I called their customer service hotline to inquire if I can pay via online banking. The agent said yes, hence, Php 2,300.00 paid.
Now waiting for their next update. I think it will already be installation. However, it’s a long weekend so maybe that will be by next week already.
While I am excited for 2018, I am also afraid of a lot of things right now, especially on the decisions I need to make on the coming months. There will be a lot of changes. What I fear the most is that I won’t be able to find the work opportunity similar or at least close to what I have now. I dread this the most because how will I be able to start a family if work opportunities back home are scarce? Let’s face it. Building a family, no matter how frugal you are, will still require a certain income to meet the basic needs of a family. But still I really want to raise that family, by God’s grace, in my hometown.
Today’s gospel is when Jesus visited the disciples who locked themselves in a room for fear of the Jews. In that visit, He said peace be with you.
This is the Lord saying that we should not be afraid because He will always be in control. When the priest mentioned this, I was a little pacified. I just prayed fervently for the Lord to guide us in all decisions we’ll do as these will all be crucial for our future. And I am lifting it all to Him to take control.
Sigh. Adulting is hard sometimes.
If you were still here, today would have been your 69th birthday. But anyhow, happy birthday still. I miss you and Daddy. Lagi naman.
I have news for you. Ibulong ko na lang pag-uwi ko uli. Please continue being my angel, especially now that I would again be adulting much much more. Daming ganap, hirap magdecide hehehe.
Anyway, happy birthday again!
Birthday 2017 Edition
I arrived in Baguio in the morning of March 23 just in time to catch the early morning mass at the Baguio Cathedral. After that, I went to Vizco’s for breakfast. Of course I also ate my birthday cake which I ordered myself :p.
I went home to sleep until 12 noon.
I requested the BF that we go out for dinner to celebrate our birthdays. His is on the 24th. We cannot think of anywhere to go so I suggested that we just go to Forest House again, the same place that we went to during our birthday dinner last year. I thought of going there because maybe we can make it as a yearly tradition and they have a free slice of birthday chocolate cake with a beautiful design so no need to order dessert hihihi.
Early birthday surprise from my teammates last March 22! Not just once but twice akong kinantahan hahaha.
What it was like when we arrived at the restaurant. Beautiful evening for a sumptuous birthday dinner.
Happy birthday to us!
Birthday cake. If we’ll have this again next year, I’ll ask the staff to put a date or at least the current year hehehe.
