2017 Week 31: 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.

SignedBook

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 ┬ástart 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.

Peace,

2016 Week 8 Recap: Nieces, Malls, Freebies

February 15-21, 2016

Work

So the vendor did not show up again as committed. Oh well, nothing else to do but chase them. Maybe they are also waiting for the downpayment. So I processed that in the hope that they will work faster once they receive it.

Niece Love

Twice this week, my niece called (one so early in the morning) to ask me when I’ll be coming home. I told her it might be during the Holy Week. Yay! Namimiss ako ng bulilit hahaha. Her older sister also texted one time para mangamusta lang. Yey! Nagtext ang dalaginding! Speaking of, the older sister will be graduating this March or April. Hindi na mapigilan ang pagdadalaga nya huhuhu. Don’t grow up too fast, bebe. Gusto ko pa rin clingy ka sa akin. Pero wait, di na ba uso ang Kinder graduation ngayon? Kasi wala daw graduation si bunging bulilit.

Living Quarters

In an effort to avoid buying and/or over-buying stuff I already have but forgotten about it, I started listing down every item in my clothes cabinet hahaha. The goal was to eliminate everything that I don’t use/need anymore. I also made a number as to how many of each item I should have to be considered “enough” based on my usual routine and activities. I was tested right away when a friend and I visited the mall on Saturday. Suffice to say that it helps when you quantify everything because it’s easier to turn away from stuff that you know you already have more than enough and those that you still lack hehehe. I’m not yet done but I’ll continue sorting and tallying for the rest next week.

A friend has also been decluttering lately and she gave me her washing machine because since her helper left years ago, she just opted to have her laundry washed in a laundry shop. So, I tested it this afternoon. Medyo nag-inarte nung una pero nakuha naman sa gentle kalampag hehe. Or ako lang ang di marunong gumamit? Hahaha. It’s the automatic type where you set everything and let it do its work. But since the nozzle is not yet compatible with my faucet, I still had to manually load water.

The pechay is thriving, although 2 seedlings did not make it huhu. Hope the rest will survive.

Weekend

It was mall time on Saturday with a friend. It was more of window shopping but I scored an office pant that was on sale and that fits me so I bought it anyway. Now, I don’t need to buy anymore pants unless one gives way and would need a replacement. After attending the evening mass today, I also went to another mall for some errands.

One last about shopping hahaha…I tried a dress last December which I really really liked but I did not buy it because it was expensive plus I cannot think of an event where I can wear it that time. But now, I’m looking for one. Unfortunately, I can’t find the dress anymore. I saw the other colors but not the one I like huhu. I don’t wear dresses regularly. Di ako nasanay kaya ilang ako haha. In the past years, I wear only once a year, that is, if I attend our company’s year end party, or if I attend a friend’s wedding. We wore uniforms in high school but that’s different. I have attempted to dress in the past but I always failed hahaha. This year, I’m giving it another try. Let’s see.

I have just watched Magic Mike XXL to cap the weekend and before writing this blog entry.

I hope you all had a great week. Cheers to another great week ahead. Goodnight for now.
