Birthday Week: Day 6 (pre-surprise)
Woke up at 9 AM on a Saturday. Had a good breakfast with Mum and Mama consisting of garlic-y sinangag, bacon and fried eggs. Went to Katipunan with Paulo to engage in barbaric customs involving hair removal. Had a late lunch at home - penne in tomato sauce + leftover Savory Chicken. Clocked in two hours for FFXIII. Chapter IX is still a bitch.
Birthday Week: Day 5
Listened to old-school Silverchair before going to work. Daniel Johns FTW. Received an off-the-wall, gone-bonkers hate e-mail for the first time. #2 prompted me to buy a pack of cigarettes, a lighter and some coffee. Hello, bad habits! Office Halloween party + Family Day = lots of kids = stress First birthday surprise! My very own Andy Warhol-inspired portrait. Yay!
Birthday Week: Day 4
First time to ride in a yellow Honda Jazz. Punctual at 9.02 am. Vanilla Cupcake Cappuccino at 7-11 to get the ball rolling. Glee lunch with the Cuties. PS3 evenings are becoming a good habit.
Birthday Week: Day 3
Stress = tummy problems. Was able to watch Transformers 2 again and LOL at the “tazer in the bathroom” scene. Had four rolls of film developed = one thing struck from my mental “to-do” list. Organized stationery that I’ve been holding on to since grade school before handing over to Kla’s sister for her enjoyment. Learning that another person’s...
5 Things I Did in Singlishland
Walk Eat Shop Photograph Marvel Yeah, yeah, for most of you who’ve been to the place, much less lived a year in SG might say that #5 is the last thing you’d ever do. Not for me, though. How can you not marvel at such an orderly, sanitized, OC place? I wish the Philippines were more like that.
Two truths and a lie
I have double-jointed fingers. I’m really looking forward to coming back to work tomorrow. Whenever I look at my photos after checking out other people’s, I always think that mine lack character.
Birthday Week: Day 2
Wore my new military green jacket to work. Had tea and dessert at CBTL to celebrate my birthday week. Got sucked into cramming a PPT for my boss, who was slave-driven into making two more on top of the one I did (which she was originally tasked to do). Spent an epic 14 hours at work to finish #3 on top of three meetings. The first one was unplanned. Had an entertaining half-hour on FB before...
After posting my Birthday week: Day 1 entry, several people have greeted me a Happy Birthday. :) Thank you, guys! :) My birthday’s on the 1st of Nov, though; still a week away from being in my late twenties. I can’t believe it, though. Most of the time I feel like I’m still in high school (right).
Birthday Week: Day 1
Went out and participated in the Local (Baranggay) Elections. I abstained for the “Baranggay Captain” ballot. Had a late lunch at Pho Hoa with Mang and Pang; had my second Vietnamese coffee fix of the weekend. Succeeded in claiming Sazh’s Eidolon, only to find out that he shot himself in Chapter VIII. Had Brooklyn Pizza for dinner with the family. Painted my nails Ateneo...
5 Things For the Long Weekend
The Philippines will be having another three-day weekend from Oct 23-25 because of the Local Elections next Monday. I know it’s only almost Wednesday, but it’s good to plan for fun stuff for a change while you’re in the middle of a work week. Buy wine and make pasta for the Tablers. Dress in my prettiest pambahay (house clothes) for Oktoberfest: Home Edition. Upload photos...

Mall-wide sales suck balls
My Friday just got ruined because of the sales, among other things. Good riddance, Friday! Get the hell outta here.
Happy Birthday Mr Ben Whishaw

5 Things on a Monday
Overslept for an hour this morning (equivalent to ten hits on the snooze button). Went to work in a hurry. Had a delicious team dinner. Deactivated my Facebook account for the nth time. Grew tired of waiting.
