When I was growing up, I never exactly had a lot of relatives over. Maybe because we live in the metro and all the rest were staying in Dumaguete. Either way, I keep on seeing those aunts in TV shows that are cool and just weird. I think I’m gonna be one of those cool aunts at home with some weird funk.
Friend: Is that your drawing?
Me: Yes. I tried and I failed.
Friend: Cute! Even the colors! I’ll show it to my daughter later. I told her you’re an artist. Now she sees you like a saint now.
Me: No way. Though can we go out and have a nice dinner out. Oh I want to dine open air see the stars and all that. I want wine. Vino! And I want a good serving of ice cream. Oh I am still accepting Valentines gift. I always fancied a set of silver rings. It’s not that expensive. Thank you, Koji-san!
What’s with the Leap Year Proposal? It is an Irish tradition it is good luck for a girl to propose to his guy. That and that in 1288, a law was passed that a woman is allowed to propose to her man. If the man declines the proposal, he has to pay up.

After having what I thought to be a gruelling day at work of verifying a zombie project out, I smiled at the thought of how it actually turned out a little bit better of what I had anticipated it to be. All kinks 90% sorted out, signing of papers to do, it was actually moving. It was enlightening and funny even how much I hated it and it turned out great. Though it was “productive” compared to its usual days, I suddenly found myself sighing at the thought of meetings I have to book next, emails to reply and the last few days of one of my favourite colleagues. Sad. I swear how do people keep up with this rollercoaster called “Life”.
I grabbed my wallet and phone (like any unwomanly thing to do) and relished the part that it’s 5:45 PM and am on my way out. I took the bus, enjoyed the 1 kilometer walk home holding a bag of groceries and baking goodies, lighted up the dark flat and plopped all my stuff in its semi-rightful place. Like any working gal nowadays, I have learned one thing necessary when you get home and it was to raise your legs and “rest”. Where else better to do it but in your own bedroom.
Moments like that it finally got me thinking… and thinking… and thinking… Yes, it was a rare moment.
Can someone please explain to me what the hell are those two loops on my ceiling?!
I’ve been living in Singapore for over 5 years and out of 6 rooms I have stayed in and called home, 4 of them had those loops on the wall. My brain is not digesting it well and it’s not even in the middle of the bedroom.
Colleague: How was the holidays? So what did you do with your kids? Me: Kids? Oh I don’t have kids. I’m happy being single. Colleague: Don’t say that. You’re going to regret it. Me: Maybe. But I thought about it and Immaculate Concepcion really doesn’t fit me. Colleague: Ha? You should start planning for a family. Me: Oh yeah. I have a plan. I’m going to the forest with a ball and catch me one of those Pokemon.
This is what you get for working in a very family oriented office.
I was browsing over at LinkedIn where I saw “Describe your year in one word”. A bit cliché but it did get me thinking. In light if keeping it half glass full, I’d say it’s:
I am patiently tending the bushes in my life that right now it has become a joke that I drown myself with online games and long sleeps for the weekend. I hope things be better soon though but at least it wasn’t that bad I guess. Family is doing ok – no sickness just the usual bicker. Work is well… going crazy and I am trying to keep myself from flipping out on how the directions seems to be misdirected. Relationships well I am hanging on and keeping them intact despite the lack of meet ups and get together.
I guess I am patiently waiting for a good opportunity while keeping the boat afloat.
So what’s that one word you can use to describe your 2015?
