A week before and a week after

I celebrated my birthday a week earlier because of a special request of one of my friends who will be leaving on my birthday week... So I met up with my close college friends for that...

And a few days after my birthday, just last Monday, me and my "old gang" met up after so long and celebrated my birthday too... Had red wine for dinner and milk and cookies and pudding for dessert...

Incidentally both celebrations, though from 2 different circle of friends, all happened in Ortigas!
It seems like it's turning out to be "my place" to hangout with friends...
Hahaha

define taking advantage

I took a leave today, which has often been a habit of mine on my special day :)
I initially planned - not so apparently - to spend it resting or relaxing
but I opted to take advantage and do some errands to gather some documents...
It was a full day of getting clearances left and right and certificates 
which made me head up to my former alma mater...


once I was done with my errands in DLSU...
before heading home for another errand
I dropped by this little chapel that I so miss the sight of...
It was so quiet inside and there was just one other lady inside 
seated at the last row at the back...
I took my spot, prayed and gave thanks to Him...
and then in the background I hear...
the distinct noise - sound effects of someone playing a game! 
hmmmm... 
She really took advantage of the peace and quiet 
to concentrate on her game and her tablet/gadget
Oh well... 
to each his own :)



I know it might sound pathetic but...

It has been a habit of mine to stay awake and usher in my special day...
So earlier or precisely late last night I tried to stay awake but unfortunately
I dozed off and the next time I checked my phone it was around 1230am already?...
I dragged myself and went out to our living room....
found a candle - a red altar candle to be exact haha - lit it
and sang to myself!
 :)


My simpler tighter space

I have a new "home" at work...
which is temporary since in a month 
we'll be moving to the newer building...
 
what I discovered is that I should lessen my junk and stuff
coz it's really difficult to squeeze it in a small space

From one isolation room to the next

I still wasn't allowed to go to work last week - my 3rd week at home...
And you can say that the extended boredom is driving me insane - I really had to ask for work to do at home...
Now the 5 day extension period has ended and I'll be going back to the doctor for the "fit to work" clearance...
With my sister in tow - the chicken pox transferred to her now... She's showing the signs today...
Oh well...
From one room to the next...
Our mom plans to sleep in the living room because of it hehe

Quite a memorable summer this is turning out to be...
