What's Up With Me Lately???

I was able to accomplish an important errand today. Thank God the rain outside wasn't able turn me into a procrastinator. I've been one lately. I was gonna make excuses but not today. :D Yeah, I was just caught up with a lot of things lately.

What's up with me? Well, I'm a little bit inspired but I won't tell you yet what it's all about. I'm just happy right now and enjoy whatever it is that keeps me inspired. LOL! Work is good. I'm still loving it. I'm watching my diet but I'm really hoping to get back to the gym. Two months of not been able to workout make me miss losing weight. I don't wanna be fat again. I hope I'll have time to look for the nearest gym or I'd end up checking out some appetite suppressants for women. Besides, that would be easier. I won't have to be spending a lot of time sweating it all out! :)

I actually just finished cooking for dinner. I hope this friend of mine drops by and help me eat all this up. :)

I am really happy and I want to make the best out of my happiness! :)

Excited For Labor Day! :)

I've been longing for a long weekend this past few weeks. I have so much to do every week and whenever Monday comes, I always wish that my weekend isn't over yet. My long awaited long weekend is not gonna take too long anymore! LOL!

This coming September 5, which is United State of America's holiday - Labor Day, that happens every 1st Monday of September, is also going to be a no-work day for us, working in Emerson Electric (Asia) Ltd.! Isn't that great? This is one thing I love about my new employer. We share the holidays of U.S. of A.! I just love it!

Now I'm thinking about what to do on that long weekend... I would love to be with nature, if I could. Some Americans will be on for a fishing trip for sure and try orlando fishing guides or go snorkeling somewhere with their family and loved ones. If I only have the money to spend to go out of town, I would really love to do that! Sigh.

I actually don't have plans yet for Labor Day. I might end up spending it with friends right here. :)

Another Week To Deal With :)

It's Monday again? :) How I wish I can extend my weekend! Unfortunately, I can't so I will have to deal with another week.

I had a great time on my weekend, though. I felt really productive because I spent most of it doing Church activities.

Last Saturday, we did an activity called Blood Letting. I still wasn't able to donate some of my blood since I had work the previous night. Although I wasn't qualified to donate blood, I still went there and helped out. I sang few songs for them and met new friends from other Church locales. Before lunch time, I was already so sleepy so I went home, not able to finish the activity.

Sunday is always a busy Church day for me. There were just so much to do but I'm glad I was able to get through to all my obligations and duties and had a very peaceful sleep last night.

I think I'm ready for whatever this week is gonna bring me. I have God to back me up all the way until another weekend! :)

Scuba Diving On My Next Palawan Trip

I used to be scared of the underwater world. When my best friend, Czarina and I and some friends went to Camiguin Islands few years back, they tried to woe me in snorkeling with them but I refused to join them. I was really scared of doing it. I was so afraid that I'd be seeing sharks or jellyfishes and other weird creatures underneath the sea. I'm even scared of corals! LOL!

But recently, I conquered that fear! During my vacation with cousin Michelle, her husband Jon and our friend Raquel at Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan last month, I decided to snorkel! I'm so glad I did because it was then that I was able to appreciate the beauty of the ocean. I've seen live colorful fishes underneath and fed them with my bare hands! I liked doing it. That's when we hopped on three different islands in our 2nd day at Palawan, I took advantage of the moments being in each islands. I wasn't scared of snorkeling anymore.

We are planning to go back in Palawan. I also got an invitation from a friend who has another friend that owns a resort over there. I just don't know when I'll be back there but I'll make sure to get myself an underwater scuba mask and try scuba diving on my next Palawan trip.

Paris In The Philippines! :)

The heiress, Paris Hilton, visited our country lately! I admit, I myself doubted if she'll ever gonna come here in the Philippines. But she actually was here. I'm not sure if she's still here right now but I was a bit elated when I heard about her being in my country.

I'm not really a fan of hers. I even didn't like her because of her bad publicity before. Her showing off as a bratt in one of the T.V. shows together with her ex-bestfriend Nicole. I just can't remember the title of that show. Her wearing of skimpy clothes, where sometimes she looked like she's wearing just breast pasties in some Men's magazines.

But she's really beautiful. She's like a barbie doll, actually. And during her interviews, she sounded like she meant it when she said. "I liked everything about the Philippines."

Well I hope she really loved it here. Why would she invest her money here in the Philippines if she didn't, right? I hope she'll keep coming back here and expand some more of her empire in my country! :)

Friends = Home Away From Home

The best thing about doing my Church obligations is that I'm able to glorify our Almighty God. I am also able to meet new people and added a lot of them to my circle of friends here in Manila. I've been having good times with them especially during weekends. I'm just happy and enjoy every bit of being with them.

It's just amazing because even our Church pastor, who's also single, have been joining our bonding moments. Saturdays were set as our "bonding day" actually. We tell each other jokes and always plan on how to make other youth members of our locale also participate actively in our activities. The favorite thing that we do when we're together is EAT! LOL! And I've gained weight because of that! Why is it so much fun to eat when you have a bunch of friends around you that you forget about your diet???

There were even instances that we help each other out, like if something is broken in someone else's home, like my computer for instance. I didn't have to bring it to the shop to have it fixed. I had one of my friends fix it for free! :) And also when one of our friends needed help to fix her door, someone came with micrometers on hand! By sharing moments with them, I'm just glad that I have friends here who listen to whatever I say and accept me as what I am. They're always there to cheer me up and keep me busy.

I'm really glad to have some sort of a family right here. It's feels like a home away from home. :)

Peurto Prinsesa Trip - Part 3

Two days of not been able to go online last week made me a bit anxious. My laptop crashed again and that same day, I wasn't able to find somebody to fix it. I'm glad I have a friend who's got a "TECHY" boyfriend who was able to finally fix my laptop this weekend! :) They were both like angels to me! I'm lucky to have them both as friends!

Now, I'm able to write about the last entry of my Puerto Prinsesa Trip! This is definitely long overdue! LOL! It's about a month ago after my trip with my friends! But here it is, without anymore a dues!

So... The 3rd day at Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan was more exciting for me because Michelle, Kuya Jon, Ate Raquel and I were able to do island hopping with some other tourists!In this trip, I faced one of my fears - to snorkel! We went to 3 different islands and I took advantage of snorkeling on all the islands we spent a few hours at! LOL! I have been so afraid of doing that when I was with my best friend Czarina on our Camiguin adventure some years ago. But when I was there, I was able to snorkel and was really in awe when I saw the sea creatures underneath the blue/green sea!

So proud of me!

I'm just so happy to be the in Palawan!

With my beloved Ates'!

A live Starfish that is!

The beautiful seashore...

Lovin' the serenity...


Pretty and sexy US GIRLS! :)

Me and our official photographer, Kuya Jon! :)

That's about my trip! I was the first to leave Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan on the 4th day because my flight was set early. I still didn't get enough of the place. The gang and I were planning to do another escapade in another part of Palawan which is El Nido. We've heard beautiful things about El Nido so that will be our next stop! :)

Til my next escapade!

Money Matters... :)

I still got a lot of bills to pay and debts to settle this month's pay out. My salaries from my new job and from my online gigs are, unfortunately, still not enough for me to splurge for the personal things, not so important things, that I wanted to buy for myself. Although, I've been spending for something this weekend that's not too important also but I just don't want to say what that was for! LOL! I know I'm babbling. Maybe because I'm a bit disappointed for not been able to buy even just a pair shoes this payout. I haven't been to the mall yet, haven't heard a barcode scanner read the prices of my groceries that I'm supposed to buy yet. I will still have to find time to do that.

For now, I've budgeted whatever money I have left. I have to keep my fingers crossed to make for whatever is left until the next pay out! I hope I won't have to spend for something unnecessary anymore! I better learn to say NO and be firm whenever I have to say that word! :)

I know I shouldn't worry because I know God will provide my needs. Like I always say, I have faith in Him! :)
