haiii....

wow! it`s been awhile! i would have to be reminded pa to update my blog! gosh....

well, since my last post, nothing much has changed. well, i`m a certified long hair now...after 7 years of sporting a short `do...

for me it was juz office...house...house...office....occasional going out with friends...but definitely it`s juz house chores i`m busy with...

with regards to work, it was kinda sad...we had to say goodbye to some of our colleagues due to management decision...kinda emotional but i`m happy with the friends i made...friends which i didn`t think i`d have after moving from my comfort zone...viva...well, the more friends, the merrier!

we celebrated the first death anniversary of my mom last sunday. gosh, time flies in full speed!

now, i am seriously thinking of my future...as for my future husband, well...i leave that in God`s hands...

for my work, i am seriously thinking of trying to work abroad...no definite plans yet but it`s definitely in the works......

well, that`s all for now...i hope i remember to update this...ciao!

obladi oblada...

ok, so it`s been ages since my last post. thanks teresaheights.com for the comment. well, since my last posting, my mom was again hospitalized for 1 month, dec 18-jan 16. yup, i sang merry xmas & auld lang syne in feu. after that, juz a little less than 2 weeks after, mom was again confined, this time in the ccu (coronary care unit, sort of an icu). she was there for 6 days, until she opted to rest feb 3. after 3 months of without a mom in the house, i guess i took her part. i know now how to do the laundry, how to cook, how to do the groceries. yup, i learned all that juz now. pathetic huh? i guess that`s one of the blessings in disguise that surfaced after mom`s demise.

but enough of that, as what everyone has been telling me...happy thoughts! so far so good...went to holy cross last Sun for mother`s day. funny, coz i still can`t sleep at night with my lights off :) i still dream of her at night, minsan wierd, minsan funny. actually, it`s not the thought that she`s gone now that makes me sad, but the ordeal she had to go through while struggling with her illness.

but she`s in a happier place now. & i know she wouldn`t like it if we will not move on. it will help also in her passing on if we go on with out lives.

so, that`s all for now. hope i could update this as often as i should... :)

...life...

grabeh...this has been the worst month ever! my mom was hospitalized last oct 12 up to 24. 1st, she was operated due to fractured shoulder. then complications & old illnesses have popped up, like arthritis & gout & the side effects of 1 of her medicines. thank God an aunt of mine was able to buy a medicine for her that's available only in the US. i juz pray she's not allergic to that, unlike its counterpart her in the phils.

so now, i've been taking a leave 2x a week. my aunt & i go on alternates to take care of mom at home. everything's fine but she still can't move. just minutes of sitting up while eating) tires her already. she can't eat alone. but other than those 2 she's fine.

what's kinda toxic is the changing of diapers. i don't mind it but sometimes, in the middle of the night, my dad wakes me up (or my aunt) coz the diaper needs to be changed.

i'm now staying in fairview. i miss staying in pasig, pero ok lang. i might be able to go back there next year na, or maybe middle of december. i juz have to make sure everything's stable at home.

baguio!

wow! the baguio trip was cool! last time i went there was in 4th grade, so i was really suprised with all the changes there. 1st, it was soooo crowded already. a little traffic jam was also evident already.

we left victory liner in cubao at 2am. i slept the entire trip, i didn't even feel the stop overs! i was seated with tonette. we got to baguio at around 7am, unloaded (we stayed at a training center c/o ella & rhea), ate breakfast, took a bath & off we went. we were able to get a fierra service, throughout the day for 100/head.

1st stop was at bell church. not much, juz the temple. of course, cameras were always clicking wherever we went.

next was the grotto. i really prayed hard & asked for Mama Mary's help for me to overcome all me problems. i also prayed for my family & friends. after that we bought some pasalubong at the tiangge below the grotto.

then we went to the zig-zag view. well, literally we juz viewed the zig-ziag road. we rested for a while, took pictures & laughed our hearts out.

then we went to PMA. we originally wanted to have lunch there but we can't find a good place, so again, we juz took some pictures and went to...

camp john hay. there we ate at dencio's. then we bought ella her cake & we sang her a happy birthday song. before leaving john hay, it began to rain.

the rain stopped by the time we reached mine's view park. tonette, grazel, me & rhea had a picture with douglas, the st. bernard dog which was there for picture-taking purposes for P10. on the way up the view i mounted a pony for a picture. P10 again.

we then went, actually juz around, burnham park. then off to the palengke to buy pasalubong. the walk was looooong from where we were parked & it was raining! then we had to walk the same distance back to our fierra...

when we got home, everyone hit the sack! alma & i bought something & eventually had a looooooong talk, which was full of mixed emotions. but juz the same, it was relieving & nice.

we were supposed to have dinner at SM, but everyone got really tired, so it was juz me, tonette & grazel. aliw ang SM! there was no air con (for obvious reasons!) & every floor has a foyer & the view was amazing! haaaayyy...

the next day, rhea woke us up at 9am & we left by 11. grazel was able to get a van bound to manila for P500/head, with all the stop overs we want.

1st stop over was in manaoag. we just paid respect to Mama Mary, bought some religious article, had it blessed & off we went.

we had lunch -4pm- at mcdo in urdaneta. then off to manila already. we arrived the the victory liner in cubao at 9pm.

beso-beso & everyone went their separate ways.

back to manila...

back to work...

back to reality...

wala lang

well, thanks to my friend benj, i suddenly remembered i have a blog to update. well, what happened since my last log? last saturday (0904) i really got bored in the house. i found my life very routinary. my friend frances instantly invited me for coffee but it was kinda late already so we just scheduled it last saturday (0911). but seriously, my life is just house...office...house...office...
can't think of something to spice it up! sometimes i feel sad na...i always want to be with friends, but my friends have their own lives to deal with. i miss neneng...whenever i'm bored she's juz 2 houses away & sm was juz P4.00 (the minimum then) away. i really want something new!

the coffee, which turned out to be dinner, coffee then bar, was last saturday with rhia, frances, pia, patrick, boy & toby. dinner was in a pizza place in libis, forgot the name, coffee was in coffee bean & tea leaf in eastwood & the bar was in decades in roces. went home at 1 am so i went home with pia na in pasig. slept the whole day yesterday coz i suffered from dysmenorrhea...damn!

i'm really looking forward to our plan to go to baguio this weekend! last time i went there was when i was in grade 4! this time, i'll be with rhea, ella, grazel, tonette & hopefully some of our others friends can join...alma, bheng, lani, cel, weng & lai. i'm looking forward to the change of environment & the fresh air...

going home!

TGIF...ang i'm going home! i'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed again...although technically i sleep pa rin naman in my old bed since i brought my own mattress.

i wish someone will make ask me for a gimik tonight. my officemates are asking me to join them in playing badminton but i don't have the gear. pia naman is asking if i want to join her & madee (former sky officemate) to have coffee. pero parang i juz want to go home na lang.

sm fairview is having a 3-day sale! gosh gastos na naman ito...pero bahala na!

alma & i are supposed to have lunch today...but she had an emergency meeting. so i'll juz settle for my spam...

ciao!
