Wishin' and Hopin'

I celebrated my 30th with my close friends from college.  We started the day with a relaxing massage and facial cleansing at Grand Royal Spa in Banilad, and ended with bottles of ice-cold beer at Formo. They have Retro Rewind theme every Saturday; it was nice to listen again to the 70's and 80's  hits. It was also a perfect background music as we shared life's different points of view.

So for this awesome year, I am wishin' for good health, hopin' to always find contentment, prayin' for guidance, plannin' for more investments and dreamin' for a Euro trip.

Thank God it's Feb 22! It is my birthday! I am very grateful but I actually have been waiting for this day to pass by just like any other day. You know, all these pressures of turning 30 gives so much drama, especially to women. Couldn't help it, the more you try to ignore it, the more it would give you insomnia and give you time to think about your accomplishments, relationships, career, finding your passion, future, etc.

But I'm glad today is already here. Tomorrow, these thoughts will ease up and I could relax. 30 is the new 20 anyway.

I watched Grammy Awards last weekend and here are my favorites:

- Julia Roberts' introduction of Paul and Ringo
- Taylor Swift's performance
- Brave by Sara Bareilles & Carole King
- Lamar and Imagine Dragons
- Lang Lang and Metallica
- Beyonce and JayZ
- Macklemore's Same Love
- John Legend's  All Of Me

And my disliked moments:

- Nate Ruse' look
- Katy Perry's performance which was all about props and backdrops
- Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor's live performance of Royals

Hakuna Matata

I chose to watch Lion King today after a long day's work. The movie soundtrack's beat, lightened up my mood.  I believe it has been more than a decade since the last time I watched the movie. Well, it was still entertaining for me, and left me in a state of Hakuna Matata, which means no worries.

Basyang 2014

Tropical Storm Basyang, the 2nd cyclone this year, crossed Cebu last night. We felt the strong winds and heavy rains at the station for approximately 4 hours, then it continued to traverse towards Western Visayas. The disturbance tracked a westward direction, moving fast at a rate of 39kph. It was short and simple, unlike Agaton, which lingered for so many days from birth to decay and caused flashfloods and landslides in several areas in Mindanao. For February and March, we have a slim chance for development of cyclone and there will less thunderstorms, so I better keep myself busy with some post analysis or case study.
