On SALE!

It felt like it's the last-day-sale and i had to buy the pair of shoes I've been eyeing, which is at 50% off. So yeah, I had to buy some today since I noticed that the price is starting to go up.

Wish for big space

I have a tiny room here in Cebu. I feel comfortable here w/ the airconditioner and the reasonable rent, but during weekends, I'd wish I have a bigger space. I want a place where I can dance or exercise, a space for a refrigerator, and a kitchen where I can cook and have access to kitchenaid dishwasher repair. It's just a wish for now, but I'm really hoping that someday, I could own a small subdivision unit here in Mactan.

Super supermoon

I’m hoping for a less cloudy sky tonight so I can have a better view of the supermoon. It will be the time of the year when the moon is closest to the earth, so it will look much bigger and brighter.  There have been several myths about this event, relating to tragedies like the Titanic and the Japan tsunami; though I don't really believe in these myths, there's still a part of me that's scared for these natural calamities to occur.

Hope

This is an unforgettable song for me. Before the era of The Voice or American idol, I had been joining contests in our small town during the '90s. This is my winning piece, with a prize of 20 pesos. I remember mom would cook my favorite fried chicken every time I join so I’ll be inspired and won’t be nervous. The lyric of this is very meaningful as it talks about the youth and it is very melodic. 

Nidz

Because my nickname is unique, people always misspell or mispronounce it. During our training, I was given this ID but good thing they replaced it right away. :)

Sleep

When I was in Manila, I had a sound sleep, but now that I'm back in my boarding house in Cebu, I usually wake up in the middle of the night and having difficulty to go back to sleep. It could be the dogs' bark, or the loud footsteps of the people upstairs or maybe the bed? Well maybe I need a memory foam topper.

Dante, Emong

Dante and Emong, are the tropical cyclones this month and they followed almost the same path. These two enhanced the southwest monsoon which brought heavy rains for the past few days. Aside from these cyclones, tornadoes are also more frequent now since it’s a thunderstorm season; the cumulonimbus or thunderstorm cloud is a source of tornadoes or waterspouts. I was in Manila for the past 3 days and the situation there is worse. It was my first experience to be caught in heavy traffic around 1am in EDSA because of the heavy rains, which flooded some areas in the metro. 

The Bellevue beach

This is the beachfront of The Bellevue Resort and I should be wearing juicy swimwear from aquabeachwear.com in this picture. Looks really nice but I heard there are long-spined black sea urchins in the area that can sting. I miss the beach, and I hope I could go back to Boracay this season, when the southwest monsoon still prevails. I think it’s better to visit this time of year because it's windy, wavy, more affordable hotel rates and fewer crowds.

Father's Day 2013

We celebrated father's day at The Bellevue Resort in Panglao. Happy Father's day Pa, and thanks to my sisters for sponsoring our meal. :D

Workstation

Finally, our workstation has been set up. We now have a better view of the satellite and radar images as well as the different weather models. I was expecting that high stand with mount will be needed for all these monitors, but this side of the wall is just perfect. Because of this, I was transferred to a different table, which is much better, farther from the negative energy radiating in the office.

Low Pressure

It's a rainy weekend due to the Low Pressure Area over the Philippine Sea. Thunderstorms are scattered all over Visayas and Mindanao area and a lot of flights have been cancelled. I just hope everyone is safe and be more cautious and prepared for floods and landslides. With this, the onset of the wet/rainy season will soon be declared.
On another note, my dentist appointment is cancelled, she needs longer time for the replacement of the post in my jacket and there's no more available slot tomorrow. :( I just hope my tooth will still be there til the time I visit her.

Back to reality


BACK TO REALITY.  It felt like I had a vacation for one week. It started with our family reunion, my seminar in Manila, then Cebu time with my sister, which means hotel accommodation. :)
Tomorrow, I'll be back at the office and I'm hoping there won't be bad surprises. Had a bad experience the last time I was out for week. Well, at least I can guard myself now. Tomorrow's going to be busy, especially that it will be the start of the school year, and we are also approaching the wet season and we are expecting 3 tropical cyclones this month.

June wedding

Congratulations Kuya Alan and Daisy on your wedding day. Finally! :D Congratulations too for being the first in our batch. I wish we were there to witness the ceremony, to see the platinum wedding bands, to catch the bouquet, to have a toast and, to sing and dance. Cheers to long engagement and good luck as you venture another chapter of your life.
