Hi there! I just want to make a random post today because it’s my rest day. My friends are currently at work so the flat’s all mine. Haha. My body clock’s messing up with me today. Last night I slept early because I was too tired. However, I started my day by waking up at 6am. It’s kind of a buzz when it’s your off but you woke up early for no apparent reason. 😑 I’m still on my bed trying to figure out what to do.
Yesterday, Nawaf left for New York. We’ve been friends for a year now and it was sudden. Even though he had plans of leaving, things changed when Potus dropped an Executive Order about the Muslim Ban (including 7 Muslim countries). We thought that he’ll be leaving after 90 days. But thankfully, a judge temporarily lifted the ban and Nawaf managed to travel the soonest time possible. Earlier, he sent me a message via Facebook telling me that he’s in Detroit. His next flight will be in Scranton to visit a friend before settling down to NYC with his wife. Prior to have chika moments with Nawaf, I messaged Paolo because I didn’t notice that I fell asleep while talking to him last night. *insert facepalm* 😆😆😆
Yesterday was a mixture of a fun and tiring day at work. We are currently at our new nest just across the old one. It’s more spacious, colorful but a bit confusing. The building plan was like a maze and my first day was kind of a disaster. I got lost finding my way around the area. Hahaha. It was kinda stressful but we’ll get used to it. When I arrived at work yesterday, the system was down and we don’t have internet connection. The outage lasted for quite some time. Work should start at 6am but the issue was resolved at 10am. During our free time, my colleagues and I decided to lounge at the Game area couches. We share stories about celebrity gossips, solar panels and “aswang” encounters. Yeah, I know how random topics might be. Hahaha. But we had fun. Some of us were eating PB and bread and others drink coffee. Our laughters covered the entire floor so no dull moments shall interfere. Once the connection was up, everyone started doing our job. Free pizzas were given at the end of the day.🍕🍕🍕
By the way, February is just the same as last month when it comes to binge watching movies. I started the month by watching a Koreanovela called Weightlifting Fairy Kim Book Joo. If you’re into Korean love stories, I suggest you watch this 16 episodes won’t harm you. *swaaaaaag* ❤❤❤ On my way to Lucena during my off last week, I got a hold on to two Filipino movies on the bus. One was the popular Aldub movie, Imagine You and Me. Next was Anne Curtis’ latest film Bakit Lahat ng Gwapo May Boyfriend? (Why do all the handsome guys have boyfriend? 😱😱😱) To be honest, I am not into Filipino movies that much. I am very picky on what movie to watch. Also, I have to make sure that I read the reviews first or if the trailer tickles my interest. During my bus ride back to Manila, I came across the movie Nerve. Dave Franco caught my attention which became the reason why I stayed awake until the movie’s over. Right now, I am into Storage Wars re-runs. I’m almost done with season 2 and I like how they turn stuff into money. I think I have a growing fascination for thrift stores.
Last week, my childhood friend Mia and I decided to have dinner at BGC. The original plan was for us to meet-up at SM Aura after her shift. Since I am already free at 3pm, I stroll around HighStreet to kill time and wait for 6pm. I went to Typo first to check out some Instagram worthy stuff that I could buy then I went in to Fullybooked to read and unwind. I took a copy of a Michael Faudet (Lang Leav) book and read poems about love and inspiration. When it’s half past five, I decided to walk towards Aura which is just 5mins away. I told Mia that we should meet at Starbucks which is just beside the main entrance. When I arrived to the place, it was jampacked and there’s no chance that I can grab a seat asap. To avoid awkwardness of me standing blankly at the corner, I decided to go inside Forever 21. Surprisingly, it was a great decision. They were on SALE!! I saw a cute shirt perfect for my sister. I chose it because it was in good shape, has nice fabric and only at 129php. Thinking that the shirt was already discounted, I tried looking for more clothes with great deals. I ended up buying my sister 2 cropped tops, 1 shirt and a blue skater skirt. When I reached the counter, things started to go cray. The clothes I got for a bargain were still subjected to 30% off. I was totally shocked! Like whoa, wait. Am I dreaming or what? I got one cropped top for 50php after deducting 30%. All in all, just when I thought I got a good deal, it turned out great because I only paid 300php for all of it. After that rewarding shopping experience, I went out to check if Mia’s there. Luckily, she just arrived and was about to text me. We stroll around Aura while thinking of the perfect place to eat. After a while, we decided to go to Market Market. (A mall just across Aura) Again, just like my shopping experience, dinner at Market was a great deal. We both decided to have a buffet at Cabalen. For only 238php + 10service charge, you have the liberty to choose from their vast selections of Filipino food. They have salads, read meat dishes, chicken viands, fish and soups. The dessert table caters to fruits, rice cakes, chocolate fondue, halo-halo and leche flan. It was an extreme cheat day for the both of us and we made sure we taste all the food that we want while having an awesome catching up. Our dinner date ended at 10pm and we are both looking forward to the next one.
Currently, I’m still lying on my bed. The sun is up and I haven’t took my breakfast yet. I am feeling kinda lazy today though I have the urge of going to Divisoria to buy some stuff. Our masquerade party is tomorrow and I while perform Single Ladies with my colleagues. Hopefully we can pull this one off. For the meantime, let me roll back and forth on my bed while contemplating about my existence. Ahahahaha.
Until next time.
