Happy Trip Ma!

My mom's going to fly to Australia this Sunday. She's not new to travelling but she's being very anxious about her travel and she's nervous about it, maybe because of the recent news on plane accidents. Anyway I wish her a safe and comfortable flight and I hope she'll be able to adapt to the cold weather in Sydney this time of the year and avoid knee walker questions.

Goodbye SE W350i

I bought a new phone for my dad today coz his Sony Ericsson W350i is now broken. So I was looking for the same model as he requested but unfortunately, no one is selling it anymore so I bought the Nokia 206. It is user friendly and I know my dad's going to like it especially that it has good sound quality just like using sennheiser e609. I was surprise that I had few options now for the basic phone with keypads. Most of their stocks are already in touchscreen mode and there are a lot of brands now that I've never heard of. Anyway, Nokia is one of the trusted phone brands and I really hope this too will last just like the SE.

Today

I survived TODAY! I was busy with the issuance of several thunderstorm advisories; people are more concerned now w/ these warnings after the severe thunder and lightning they've experienced for the past few days, so we get more inquiries about this now. I was also busy with the calls to airline ticketing offices, which annoyed me as I was being passed from one department to another for just a simple question about baggage allowance. Then, I was doing some unsuccessful online booking due to credit card validation issues. But good thing is that, the thunderstorms dissipated early and I still had time to go shopping for Ate Yen's stuff. 

So tomorrow will be another busy day, I'm just hoping that my boss will be in a good mood coz I'll file for a vacation leave. Excited! :D

BFFs

It feels lonely now that I'm back to my routine. I just had a great time last week and I hope we could do this every year.







Last last week

We went to Eastwest Cafe in IT Park. We always love their mango sushi, banana milkshake and the vodka slush.













THURSDAY 
We had dinner in our favorite ngohiong place near USC-TC, then we had beer and this was the highlight. It was really funny but I feel sad for the waiter. He really couldn't spell it right. So we were wondering if he also misspelled his name.












SATURDAY 
We attended the baptismal of baby Euclid (baby on the right).
















Mother of the baby and the fairy godmothers...












Then at night, our other college friends joined us for dinner, KTV and coffee.










                                                                
SUNDAY
Family day at Holiday Gym and Spa Hotel in Banilad.

ISANG 2013

ISANG is the 9th tropical cyclone of the year. This disturbance enhances the Southwest monsoon which is why we are experiencing rains for the past few days, and this seasonal wind is going to stay until August. This is the time of the year when I love to just stay at home and enjoy the rainfall with a warm cup of coffee. But, I have to be at work and it feels uneasy sometimes, if only I had a pair of Zamberlan Vioz boots, then my walk to and from work wouldn't be that uncomfortable.

Goodbye Finn


This is more heartbreaking to watch now that Finn's really gone...

Ratatouille

There was Ratatouille in my room last night. It freaked me out. I thought my room was already pest free, after using the chalk roach killer, but this is even worse. Got to have a general cleaning tonight, I need to make sure there won't be any furry creatures disturb my sleep. I wish I could have a place like the Paris Luxe Apartments and not be bothered by all these pests. :(

Earth Science

Found this book in one of our cabinets at home. I used this book back in college for my subject Earth Science, and I was surprised that I used this for one semester and I was already studying the introduction of Meteorology back then. :)

Staycation

It's been a long and stressful week, so I decided to just stay in Cebu for the weekend. We've been busy with thunderstorm warnings this week, then I was loaded with administrative tasks which is due next week. I'm glad there aren't any Manila travels scheduled yet coz my besties are here and I want to spend as much time as possible with them.
So now, I got to do what I gotta do while enjoying the "Noughties on a Friggin Fly-day Friday" music at Monster Radio BT 105.9

Level-up

It’s a good kind of weird to have a leveled up topic now when I spent time with my friends.  They were already talking about epidurals, s26, and the argument on whether it is better to have branded vaccines for the child, or whether the generic ones provided by the local health centers are just as good. Well, it was still fun as long as I have my margarita w/ me.

Sandugo month

Sandugo is an annual festival in Bohol w/c commemorates the blood compact that symbolizes the friendship between Datu Sikatuna and Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. I won't be coming home for the celebration but I’m glad I was able buy tickets for my parents for the David Pomeranz concert on the 21st at the Bohol Tropics Resort. It's good that they are bringing international artists to Bohol. There are a lot of activities for the month of July, like the beauty contest, band sh0wcase which could feature Epiphone Les Paul Custom guitars but what I miss most is the street dancing.

Huaning 2013

is the 8th tropical storm in the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). Below is a satellite image of the typhoon showing a defined eye, as it enters PAR. If it continues with its West Northwest track, then it's going to be a disaster in Taiwan. Residents in northern Luzon should be alert too.

July rocks!

I am so happy that my best friends are here this month. I spent the last 2 nights with them having endless fun and laughter. Since it is a work week, the videoke or the concert night with have to wait. There are still a lot of events happening this month and hopefully, we'll all be complete before the month ends. It's almost 8 years now since the last time the four of us were together.
