2018 Week 26: Semi-productive and Semi-bum

June 25 – July 1, 2018

Last Saturday, my friend and I met to eat at Romantic Baboy in Tomas Morato. When we arrived there however, the list was long. As in long like there were around 30-50 groups ahead of us and estimated waiting time will be 3 hours. We can’t wait that long so we decided to look for other places to eat.

We ended up eating at O Ga Ne, also in the same area. We just wanted to eat meat so we were satisfied naman. But I still want to try Romantic Baboy to know what the hype is all about hehehehe.

OGaNe

↑Meat and more meat!

After brunch, we went to SM Makati to look for office shoes. Luckily, I saw two candidates and eventually, a pair from Hush Puppies won over a pair from Gibi. It was more expensive but no regrets because it is so comfortable. No blisters after wearing it for 3 consecutive days now yey! I hope the cost per wear will be low in the long run.

HushPuppies

↑New cute office shoes. I know this is more of a school shoes but it’s black and it’s closed so…it will also pass for office shoes hehehe. We are not required to wear black and closed. It’s just my preference.

We went back to Shangri-la Mall after. I dropped by the grocery for some food supplies. I saw a buy one take one fish fillet so I grabbed one. Bakit kaya madalas silang may ganon? Hahaha. Went home after.

And then I tended to my FarmVille hahahaha.

On Sunday, I went to Unimart for more grocery shopping. And then I did batch cooking so that I don’t need to buy outside at least this week. My wallet is a little happy hahaha.

The end.

2018 Week 19: Weekend at Home | Mother’s Day

May 7-13, 2018

I was in Baguio last weekend for the Barangay elections last May 14. On Saturday, my sister, nieces and I hiked Mt. Yangbew.

After the hike, we dropped by the hospital in La Trinidad to visit my uncle who was undergoing dialysis that day. It was just supposed to be a quick visit but all the aunties who were there cannot stay with him until his dialysis was completed so they requested us to stay with him instead. Fortunately, his wife arrived at 5 PM so we can leave earlier than planned. We had dinner at McDonald’s before going home.

On Sunday, my sister-in-law invited us for lunch to celebrate Mother’s Day. We are missing the parents but I am glad that somehow, we get to go out for lunch once in a while.

↑Happy fiesta!

We went our separate ways after lunch. I attended the late afternoon mass at Divine Mercy.

The BF and I also went out for dinner. I was hoping we could go to John Hay but it was raining so we opted to just dine at Fortune Hong Kong Seafood Restaurant which was at the city proper. We also discussed some wedding related stuff hehe. Totoo na talaga ito besh hahahaha.

2018 Week 18: House Blessing | Food Trip | Passport Appointment | Unimart

April 30 – May 6, 2018

I am so happy that I was able to secure an appointment for the BF’s passport renewal. I started checking the site almost everyday, at different hours since March and was not lucky since then. There were no available dates since June. On April 30, I tried again in the evening hoping that this time, there will be slots because April is about to end. And boy was I lucky! Hehe. I was even able to change the schedule to a week earlier because when I double checked with the BF in the morning, there was a conflict with his schedule. Luck was on my side that day. I was thinking that most people might have gone to long breaks as May 1 was a holiday, hence slots were still available in the morning hehe. Anyway, I am just thankful he now has a schedule. Hopefully it goes well from here.

My friend had her condo blessed so another friend and I went to her place. The place was small so her visitors were in batches hehehe.

From the friend’s condo, we proceeded to Ayala the 30th because my other friend hasn’t been there yet.

We were feeling a little hungry (because that was already a few hours after lunch) so we went to Cafe Breton to grab some snacks. Here were our orders:

CafeBreton1

↑We shared one order of sausage platter with toast and each of us ordered caramel liegeois. All yummy but also super calorie and sugar loaded hehehehe.

CafeBreton2

↑We shared this order of blueberries and cream crepe. Super yummy!

After that, we went around the mall to check out the shops.

The plan was to also visit Estancia mall too but for some reason, we took our sweet time going around Ayala and it we just realized that it was already closing hours.

We were hungry again so we went to Capitol Commons to search for a place where we can eat. This time, we ended up in Peri-Peri.

Periperi1

↑Grilled chicke, mac and cheese, pita bread and salsa

On the way home last Saturday, I saw that Unimart has already opened! And so on Sunday, I went to check it out. The place is big and spacious too! It seems that the imported goods are cheaper there.  But the lettuce I bought was more expensive than in Rustans huhu. But anyway, at least I now have another alternative where I can shop that’s nearer the apartment hehehe.

The end.

2018 Week 15: Anything New?

April 9-15, 2018

Wala na akong maisip na witty title haha.

April 9 was a holiday, therefore I had another day in Baguio. I started checking out Baguio wedding suppliers and I got so confused because there were a lot. Napagod ako just by looking at the list hahaha. Sumakit pa ulo ko. So tinigilan ko muna.

I went back to Manila in the evening na.

The following day, I was not feeling well so I opted to stay home and rest. Sayang ang leave pero ayaw ko ring ipilit.

The rest of the week was dealing with issues after issues.

On Thursday also, I had to cram with all the reading assignments for the Execution sessions.

On Friday, I had to talk to my boss because I was not feeling good about everything work-related. I was relieved after that talk and I’m glad I did it.

The weekend was spent for domestic chores plus a dinner with a friend on Saturday. We went to Bag O’ Shrimps in Megamall. We enjoyed the food! Ang sarap ng timpla ng shrimp. However, it is best eaten talaga if kamay without the plastic glove hehehe. Pero sa sarap, ni-takeout ko yung sabaw together with 2 or 3 shrimps pang-ulam the next day hehehe.

BagOShripms1

↑There is an additional payment when you add corn and sausages.

BagOShrimps2

↑Dynamite na hindi ko keri ang anghang kahit may cheese.

BagOShrimps3

↑Sweet potato fries.

The end.

2018 Week 4: New Toy | School Play

January 22-28, 2018

I already got the iPhone X that I won from a raffle in September. I braved going to Makati last Friday just to pick it up. But it’s still in its box until now. Di pa kasi ako nakakabili ng case hehehehe. But worry not, it will be unboxed in the coming days.

iPhoneX

↑You’re finally here!

Few days to go and January is up. So so fast!

I need my payslip. I’m confused with the amounts I got for my salary and the sick and vacation leave conversions I got. May namali ba sa computations!? And of course, I want to see my new tax after the TRAIN implementation hehehehe.

Last Saturday, we went to UP to watch a friend’s daughter’s school play. The play is entitled Guardians the Musical. School children from Nursery to Kinder participated in the play. It’s all about the story of grandparents Lolo Angelo and Lola Angela and about their goodness in their community.

It was such a delight to watch all these kids. Sari-saring klase ng bata. May bibo, may makulit, may deadma lang during presentation hahahaha. It’s also good to be reminded about love, respect, eating healthy, caring for the environment and other good traits.

GuardiansTheMusical

After the play, my friend and I went to The Chocolate Kiss for a late lunch.

ChickenPorkAdobo

↑Chicken Pork Adobo. Php 195.00.

I went to Ayala the 30th after to do some window shopping and pick up some groceries. Wala talaga akong nashop. I saw some jackets that were on sale at Terranova kaso ang tagal magreply ng pamangkin ko kung anong gusto so umuwi na ako hehe.

On Sunday, I went to Megamall for mass and some more window shopping. no worries…wala pa rin akong binili hehehehe. Nanawa na ako.

Another friend wanted to meet up so she could give the Korean goodies for me. The loot contains some dried persimmon, few pieces of chocolates, citron tea, face masks and hand creams! Happiness! Hehehe.

We also saw the movie Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes. It was hilarious and just light. Perfect way to cap a stressful week.

I wasn’t able to do some readings this week because I was out both days last weekend. No time to bum. Plus, I have a lot in my mind lately that I’m distracted. This too shall pass.

Hope you all have a great week ahead.
