Whatnots continued

Day 46 was weird but interesting. For the first time, I was able to watch a movie with my friend's family. It was something spontaneous. The thought of it makes me laugh because it was as if I intruded their family bonding, but I actually didn't feel left out. Or feelingera lang man jud ko. I saw how they loved their mom too. Great kids. Awp. :)

Day 45 was a sad day. The first and only time I saw my grandaunt after she passed away. Looking at her inside the casket made me feel sad. She was loveable, and indeed, she was one of the few people I like because she was genuine. She was single. She's in heaven now, for sure.

Day 44 was adventure day. So the family went to Oslob to see the whales. Long story short, I wasn't able to swim with the butandings, only saw them up close though. That was a first. And it was also my first time to go to Aginuid Falls. Didn't appreciate the water that much but it was a good experience. Glad to find out that my mother is still up for hiking adventures. I thought, at 58, she would easily give up, considering our Bega Falls adventure earlier this year (or was it last year?). Anyways, we also went to Kawasan Falls. To cap my firsts for that day, it was my first time to have a round Cebu south tour. Proud! :)

Day 43 and work was back to normal. I finished my report, but still needs some polishing. That day was the first time I gave a gift to my godson (whom I forgot the name, and didn't ask. Just because). It was the first time we saw each other after 12 years. Yep! I'm old.

Quick random fact: My eldest gonchild is turning 19 this year. Again, yep, I'm old.

Day 42, which is today was a first too. The first time I skipped afternoon work because I wasn't feeling well. At first I thought it was LBM (tmi!), but then I realized maybe it's pasmo. And I don't know the english for pasmo. :)

That's it again! Tomorrow I'm planning on buying chicken wings after work, or probably have my 30-minute jog. We'll see. Excited for tomorrow's firsts!

Check my counter out at the bottom of my page and you'll see that something is fast approaching. Hmm, it's my big 30! I'd like to say that it's not safe to post exact birthdates online, but please let this be an excuse. I'm turning 30 in less than fifty days!

I've always wanted to make a bucket list, but I am so lazy! So instead of that bucket list, I'll write down at least one thing insteresting that happens 50 days before my birthday.

Today is actually Day 47. Rather, there are 47 days left 'til I turn 30.

Day 50 was last Sunday. It was, I guess, the first time (in a long time, hehe) that I went to mass with family on an early Sunday moning. What a way to kick off the countdown! Although I really wasn't aware about it then. :)

Day 49, I bought roasted coffee for one of my officemates. After work, we ate at McDonald's. So, it was the first time I went to McDonald's before and after work. It was also the first time my close friend T hitched a ride with me after getting that new job. It was also the first time two of my friends met each other. :)

Day 48 was the first time I went jogging with my friend T. I surrendered, and eventually just stood by the side and waited for her. When she was nearing, she ran a bit faster and told me that a girl had collapsed. Okay, so who said push yourself to the limit? Because that girl obviously did.

Day 47, which is today, was my first time getting a massage at the spa. Yep, my first. I've been invited and told to go many times before but today was just too spontaneous and my back actually hurt so I was so excited for the massage. It was good! Surely not the best but it was really good. Hello Spa body massage was only for 250 for an hour. I chose the Swedish oil massage. Me and my 2 other girlfriends, Gee and Lai, definitely had a fun and relaxed time. Going back? Hmm, we'll see. With Ate P next time. 

Day 46 will be tomorrow. Can't wait.

Quick random fact: Our house number before was #46. I used to live at #46 Pabayo San Agustin.

That's it!

Of Notes and Novelties

I love hoarding little novelty items, whether to just stash in a box or to decorate my room with. From the smallest items, such as pens, to bigger things like furniture, I always like the things I possess to be creatively designed, unique and visually pleasing.

Most of my friends know this: I absolutely love cute and one-of-a-kind stationery, diary books, journals, posts it and everything in between. If you happen to drop by my room, you’ll know what I mean! ;-)

I’ve been recently looking for some new stationery as well as novelty items to decorate my room with.

While browsing online I found some really cool and unique stationery at Zalora.

can somebody get me these, please? :p

Although most people these days use technology such as social media or text messages to communicate with one another, I still find handwritten notes to be the most meaningful and sincere. We cannot deny that it is way more intimate reading a note penned in the handwriting of someone you love than in the generic font that text messages come in. That’s why I love writing notes!  
(which reminds me, I still have to give that note I made last night to...)
 Besides, with handwritten notes, you also get to pick beautiful letter paper to write on!

hmmm, Dear Diary...

For me, a birthday note written with different colored pens on pretty letter paper (sent via snail mail at that), certainly beats that insincere birthday greeting on your Facebook wall! Haha… ;)

By the way, the last note (and journal) I made was for my friend on her birthday the other week.
She said she'd take a picture of the note and I relentlessly said NO! haha :)
