January Days

Everyday I’ve been saying “best weather ever!” (who isn’t? haha! I’m hoping it’s here to stay *fingers crossed*).. just like that thirty-one days have passed, ending with a celebration of Chinese New Year!

The Year It Has Been, 2012 Edition

After an early morning start, spending a few hours in my mom’s apartment and strolling in the mall, I’m back home early to avoid accidents. I admit I love fireworks but I don’t want to be near them and I don’t like the loud noise. Anyway, I started typing this at 1830, making it 4.5 hours away before we welcome 2013. Until then, let me take this time to look back at 2012.

We stick to fad diets, enroll ourselves to expensive gyms, drink til we drop and go on a pursuit of happiness. But is it all worth it? Does it gives us what we aim for? Do we feel good with ourselves?

Here’s a guide to living a simple and healthy life with no regrets 🙂

One of my collections involved cute little things that I call my ‘children’ — stuff toys. When I was younger, I had a doll giving to me on a special occasion which is as tall as me. I think I still have that one hidden someone in our house. There was also this white bear that was sent by my godmother from Aussie.

Everything I have today were mostly given by friends. Here’s a list of them:

The package came from China (and yes, before you ask, I purchased this before the whole PH-China dispute :P)

Waking up to a sunny yet chill morning, I knew it was going to be a good day, even if it rains. My day brightened up more when the package I’ve been waiting for has arrived.

As everyone knows I have been online shopping earlier May, wherein I got to purchase a bag from Chicify and a pair of doll shoes from Zalora.

In conjunction to my earlier post about a past relationship, you might have noticed that aside from a change in theme, I also changed my blog’s title.

One day I went out of the house to buy street food beside our village’s main gate. On my way home, I was getting tired of listening to my favorite songs that I shuffled my playlist and try other tracks that were there but I never really listen to.

Then I came across David Archuleta‘s song from his 2010 album, “The Other Side of Down”. Listening intently to the lyrics, I found a connection to my current dilemma at the time. Add the crazy weather and my sudden preference for everything simple and viola~

My mom and I was supposed to buy shoes for me to use since a pair of my black doll shoes were unfortunately included to the trash and the other one I was using when I met with her is already damaged. We did get to look around but there’s nothing that fits me. In the end she’s the one who got to bought home a pair :))

Anyway, since she cancelled our scheduled plans last Sunday, I thought of buying one online so that I can still go out and apply for jobs.

Yet another package that came in the mail today! It was delivered by the same LBC personnel from yesterday 🙂

Honestly, I was worried while placing the order because it’s my first time to buy a pair of shoes without actually fitting it. I’m on the plus size side and I definitely had to rely on my size in centimeters. I am so relieved that it fits me well and very much happy that the insoles are comfy.

Cute little accents ♥

It came with a shoe bag too (see first photo), though it isn’t waterproof. I’m just a little worried about the shoe itself when it rains, because of the other material of the shoe. Or not, since I’m planning to buy another pair as an alternative.

I bought this from Zalora and paid via Paypal also. It was for sale at P760 and shipping was free. They also have a 30-day free replacement policy, which makes me want to buy from them again in the future. Package was processed using Xend but they route to it LBC for provincial deliveries (funny, Antipolo doesn’t look provincial to me anymore lol).

Two down, one more to go. Can’t wait for it 🙂

My Grandma woke me up by shouting at my ears because a package came in today. She was insisting she doesn’t know what do to with it. Anyway, she could have saved me and the delivery person the trouble by just signing it. Here’s one of the three packages I’m waiting for this week:

A small country with 7,107 islands, the Philippines has 120 – 175 recognized languages depending on the classification (4 of which does not have any known speakers anymore).

The original official language of the country is Spanish, given we had the Spanish invasion for three centuries. National Hero Jose Rizal uses Spanish in his works, such as Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo.

The Americans came after and the imposition of the English language gradually reduced the use of Spanish. 1935 Constitution made English an official language alongside Spanish. 1939 came and Tagalog was chosen among regional languages as Wikang Pambansa. It was renamed to Pilipino (1959) and to what we know now as Filipino (1973).

It is no secret that not every Filipino knows how to speak Tagalog and/or English. Depending on the region you live in, you’re most likely taught in your regional language (Ilocano, Cebuano, etc.) and English. And if you do speak English, you have a certain accent, which most of the time people mock you (and the sad thing is, it’s your own countrymen that do).

But after reading an article in Yahoo! Philippines entitled “PH: World’s best country in business English“, I was like “WOW! We beat U.S.? Seriously?”. To top that off, we’re the only country who got a score above of 7.0 and showing that the country’s economy is improving.

This isn’t bias, I assure you. The study was made by GlobalEnglish Corporation.

Very inspiring! It’s more FUN in the Philippines. So Proud to be Pinoy! ♥

Late post again. This time it’s about my birthday!

I passed by Ms. Ryne’s office before I fetched Ate Bernz (who was insisting that we have dinner together since I cancelled the overnight bonding a day before). We went around the mall to eat snacks and play at Timezone. Dropped by her house a bit to get stuff then went grocery shopping (since I pushed through the event last minute).

It’s funny where life takes us. The places we go to, the people we meet along the way, the experiences and lessons we forever keep in our hearts.. I always believe there’s a reason for everything. One thing that happens, whether happy or not, is there to make us say that “I experience this, I understand how it feels now.”

A month ago I greeted a friend Happy Birthday. Mentioning that my gift will be given late, she invited me to go out with the little brother, Sean. In a way you can say we are long time friends. We’ve known each other since 2007. But I’ve never had much discussions with her and I’m closer with Sean. It was usually common courtesy. Simple hi-hello, invitation to eat when she was eating or simple questions about series, movies or books.

Because I was their brother’s then-girlfriend.

I’m the type of person who doesn’t gamble on stuff, with or without money involved. It’s against my belief that I people have to put in line money in order to prove something. I said, gamble, not take risk nor not try my luck.
