I hurried to Trinoma yesterday afternoon to purchase a nice swim suit and pay our phone bills but I was only able to get the swim suits and not pay the bills because the mall is jam-packed with people. Plus, I hurt my foot on the way to Landmark. I was trying to over take some people who were busy looking at their cellphones while walking then I accidentally stepped on the missing tile beside the escalator and twisted my ankle! I fell half way and it was really embarrassing. I pretended that it didn't hurt but after that 2-minute walk to Landmark, my left foot was already aching a lot. I sat down for a minute and massaged my foot. Hoping to ease the pain. It did, but only for awhile. I hurried and bought the swim that I liked and met with mom and dad for dinner, then coffee break @ The Coffee bean. Mom and dad dropped me off to work @ 8pm.

@ 2AM. I was expecting the pain would go away by now but somehow it gotten worse. It hurts when I touch it and even painful when I walk. I usually twist my ankle once a year and all of them seems to have bad results like this. But I wasn't expecting it now though. What a perfect way to end the year huh.

I called TonTon Thai foot massage and reflex earlier and probably visit them before my shift starts later. Hopefully the pain would be gone by then because I cannot afford to be injured right now. We got a 3-day stay @ ThunderBird Resort in La Union (Jan2-4), followed by my sister's wedding the next day (Jan.5). High heels man! Get the picture.

Goodluck to me. Anyway, have a safe NEW YEAR to all!

Dinner @ Midas Hotel

Just got home from a family dinner at Midas Hotel (formerly Hyatt hotel). Buffet eat all you can experience again. Thanks to BIL's mom. Too bad hubby had to stay home due to LBM, but the kiddo had a great time. Food was awesome! I ate more veggies than meat this time. I feel like I can eat there all day hahaha. Anyway, two days left before new year and it's back to work for me.

Have a nice weekend to all.

Did you know?

Did you know...

... that on March 11 is Shad Return Day? In the early history of America, the shad ascended up the Hudson River on March 11th with such clockwork regularity that the Dutch colonists called the shad "elft" (eleven fish). In other places, the shad would ascend to spawn as late as May.

Family dinner

We had family dinner at Aberdeen Court yesterday to celebrate mom and dad's wedding anniversary. Eat all you can rate at only Php203 per person during weekdays and Php135 for kids. Meals served there are not the same as the one in Saisaki or Yakimix. They serve cooked meals with several variants and a dessert. Not too bad for 200+, plus we're not a big eater so it was okay.

What I love there was the coffee. I ordered cafe mocha and it was good! For only Php70. My sister bought flowers for mom and Conti's cake for dad. It was a good family night dinner. Thank you God.

I was thrilled when I learned that my parent's neighbor is a dermatologist. I am very much prone to break-outs and getting a treatment very month is what I really need. Last week, I had my second acne peel treatment and last Wednesday, hubby and I had our warts removed. It was a simple procedure but I had to admit that I got a little scared when Doc was burning the excess skin. Sounds like electricity zapping! Anyway, I had more on my neck and hopefully when the wound heals, I'll get a clearer skin.

I have continuous headaches for 4 days in a row. It seems that sleep is not the cure for it. I don't want to take advil all the time so I often drink coffee or just don't think about it. Anyway, the pain on my lower right ab is now consistent and it's already alarming. I was suppose to go to the doctor this morning but I had to buy groceries first, because our fridge is already empty. Then I went I got home, I was too damn tired to go out again. So I'm planning to go tomorrow (yes, really).
Hubby stayed at home and slept all day. He went to Baguio with his SOS club members for te yearly charity ride. He asked me if we (and he kiddo) can go with him next year. So let's see if our schedules will permit us.
I gave the kiddo her favortie cereal this morning and she was thrilled to see a free CD inside. But unfortunately, the hubby warned us not to use the TV upstairs because he said, the picture tube was already unstable and it might give in any moment, and for that, it's taking too much electricity. So propose that we buy a new TV instead for the house. Zero interest of course. I'll finish paying the iTouch in 2-3 months time and I plan to get the flat screen, probably just the 24" or lesser or something. I don't want it that big because our bedroom is not that big. So what brand... Sony? TCL? Samsung? Probably I'd pick which gives us the best deal.
Kiddo's Christmas vacation will officially start on Friday and we're excited next week. MIL and BILL will arrive on the 21st and my sister and her fiance on the 22th. Watta Christmas this will be!
Anyway, back to work for the mean time and will go to the clinic in a few because the pain is getting worse.

Christmas rush!

It's just days before Christmas and I haven't made a list yet. Kiddo and I went to the mall the other day and brought an item for her exchange gift in school and a couple of giveaways for her best friend and classmates. I plan to make polvoron and yema balls to give to other kids and hopefully I'll have enough time. Anyway, I still want to make a list I need to get for my family (parents and sisters) and I think I really need 2012 banana republic coupons. I'm on a budget this year, so store which offers a good deal will probably do. Christmas rush!

Two voices, One song.

I never liked the sound of my voice. I always duck under the table whenever I hear my recorded voice singing the main part. I super envy those people who has that rocker-edge-crystal clear quality vocals. The jealousy faded when I came out and took the second voice part beside aiMz, lead vocalist of Marry Me Amy. Then I realized I was not afraid anymore. Our voices sounded like....two different tones in harmony. Two voices, One song.

Memories always comes whenever I play our songs. Glory days is yet to unfold. God will lead the way, and I believe in Him.

Christmas is in the air

I rushed out the door this morning at work, eager to go home. Plus I need to catch the train and beat the rain (just in case it'll pour and luckily it didn't). I was on the bus when I noticed the weather. It was gloomy, cloudy and cool. The fog is noticeable and I felt I was in Hong Kong hahaha. When I got off the bus, I felt the cold breeze right through my thin sweater and thought I'll have a good day sleep today.

I opened the door at home and was surprised because our Christmas was neatly assembled and the suppose-to-be shoe stand where the tree stands now was put away. The kiddo and hubby really did a good job. Now all we need are presents!

I thought we'll have a gloomy boring Christmas this year but as the days draw closer to the 25th, I'm finally feeling the Christmas spirit. Thanks to the hubby and the kiddo. Oh! And the weather too hahaha. Christmas is in the air guys!

I love Reading

Okay I'm guilty! ... I'm guilty of not having that much time because I'll pretty much occupied with reading. It's not that bad right. I'm glad I found my way back to reading again. It's like having a world in my head and it is I who has the only access to it. Anyway, I just finished 4 books--Fallen and Blue Blood, but still waiting for the rest of the books. I wrote those books on my wishlist already and I'm excited about it hahaha! So to kill the waiting time, I downloaded a Judith McNaught novel. I always wanted to try her romantic novels and now I just can't get my hands off it! I'm currently reading--Whitnet, my love in the computer and my sister M lend me one too. So I got a couple of books lined up already. It's amazing how I'm transported whenever I read.

Anyway, since I'm enjoying the hobby I always wanted to do, why don't you guys do the same. Read a book, play guitar, sing your heart out... anything. And tell me all about it.

Today is December 1st and my office mates are already busy making their wish list. I have a couple of 'Kris Kringle' exchange gifts events from different groups of people here. It's also exciting to know that I'll be getting a handful of gifts too. So like I said, wishlist. I was forced to make one for myself and as I check the list of 'babies' and their wishlist, something caught my eye. Someone actually wanted a Tablet Docking Station. Good thing the lucky person I'll be giving a gift this Christmas is a little less techie than this person haha. Anyway, December 16 will our official Christmas Party here at work and I'm soo excited to get my gift. I'll reveal it once I have it so stay tuned guys.
