The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful. And being generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less. So don’t buy it. Be smart. Be thoughtful. And be generous.
Two and a half days without water and electricity.
Fixing the damages Typhoon Glenda left us. (All that clutter O_O!)
And 3 hours of nonstop driving! From Pagasa and Pasong Buwaya to The District Mall. Which led us to Emilio Aguinaldo Highway to Imus. From Imus (thru shortcuts I am not familiar with) to Buhay na Tubig. Then went straight to Mambog next. Exited at a shortcut that leads to Molino Blvd. And lastly, from Molino Blvd. to Daang Hari. Drove us back home safely without casualties or car scratches/damages haha. Got a terrible headache though. Probably because of the information overload. My brain hurts from all the stuff I have to remember. I was taught all sorts of way to park a car. Now I know they’re not kidding when they say parallel parking truly is the toughest one. Had to try 5 times before I totally got the concept.
But this day has been really great. Aside from surviving my first driving lessons safely, we also got back both our water and electricity today! Woohoo! Thus, allowing me to finally PROPERLY talk to my baby. I thought I’d go insane within that 2 days of no electricity (not to mention, no internet!), but thank God I didn’t.
Praise the Lord for all the wonderful blessings and that me and my love ones are all safe and sound after the devastation typhoon Glenda brought us.
Post birthday celebration: Mom always has a way to cheer me up ❤️ Strawberry cheesecake frappe + Sbarro Four cheese pizza + DQ Kitkat Ice cream cake = One super happy kiddo :) Talk about the ultimate comfort food huh? If this is how I celebrated my birthday yesterday, I swear it would’ve been a million times better.
The sound of the rain comforted me, but the fierce thunder and lightning frightened me. A storm is probably coming.
even the fiery
Another year older! Today I didn’t dress myself up, but instead I wore something that I’d usually wear at home. I woke up early to cook for the party we were having at our other house. I seriously have never been this exhausted.
In all honesty, I never had a party in mind. I hate parties. Well not as much as I liked them back when I was a kid. Originally, I thought I could extend my stay back in Japan at least until my birthday. I badly wanted to celebrate it at Universal Studios because of the new Harry Potter attraction they have there. But I had to go back. So that’s no longer an option for me. Instead I thought, I’d be happy to just go out, dine out, and watch a movie with my family just like we did last year. However a week before my birthday, my Mom and Uncle came up with the idea of celebrating my cousin’s birthday and mine together at our newly renovated house. I wanted to tell my Mom that I don’t like to throw a party, but everyone was already excited about it already that I just couldn’t say no anymore. We pushed through the party and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have fun. I did, but I just felt terrible the entire day. The hot and humid temperature gave me a headache. I was sweating like crazy as soon as we got to our other house. We didn’t have airconditioning yet since it was just newly renovated, so it was totally hot there. I managed to look so haggard the first 30 minutes I was there. I didn’t look like a birthday celebrant. I looked like an exhausted house maid. And for the first time, I felt older than I actually was.
In conclusion, this day didn’t turn out the way I have pictured it would go. I didn’t get the usual happy birthday wake up call I get. And the people who I thought would remember my birthday didn’t even greet me. When the evening came, all I wanna do is get home as early as I could so that I can stick up to the plans my boyfriend and I made. But when I got home, I had to help clean after our pets who we left the entire day first. I was so tired and I just want to talk to my boyfriend already. But then he was still asleep. I guess he slept late and we won’t be able to skype anymore. So yeah, what a day. I still can’t decide how I should call this day. Is it a good or bad?
