catching up

I was a total bum this week and I had some draft posts but were never able to post them because they lacked something: pictures. Stories are always better told when pictures are present. My camera had been busted for the longest time ever and I'm so lazy to go and have it fixed. But I will soon because it's summer and there will be lots, and I say, lots of things that are going to happen. My cellphone camera isn't that trusty too. Because I always leave my phone at home. :P

Talking about happenings, let me share with you a few things that happened to me this week.

Mid-week catching-up

[03.25] It was my grandmother's birthday and we had a mañanita for her. I'm just saving that for another post. The pictures are with my cousin and she seems to have trouble transferring the photos from her camera to the computer. Dunno why.

I also purchased tickets for a vacation. Boy, am I excited! I even dreamt about the place that night. I'm off to an island somewhere and I'm definitely sharing lots of photos then.

[03.26] Earth Hour. I was at home. Though there was a program going on somewhere nearby, I wasn't in the mood to go. Besides, nobody would drive me home, so I'd rather be home. Turned off the lights for an hour. Just the lights inside the house. Robbers are everywhere :P

[03.27] A buzz was going on around the web about this Willing Willie video over at YouTube. That's a local show here in the Philippines. If you'd watch the video, it actually shows a kid gyrating like a macho dancer. He obviously didn't like it because he was crying.

The issue is, why would some host exploit the innocence of a child on national television and make fun (and definitely, money) out of it? Moralists were outraged. Honestly, I found it cute at first, but then it wasn't funny. And then it was just too much. It was too much for a 6-year old kid. By the way, the kid's dad went live last Monday and said that they're proud of what the kid did and that all the money he earned (P10,000) was given to him in full. Ugh. Whatever. What's your take?

[03.28] My 12-month old nephew finally learned how to walk! While me and my sister were having home-serviced pedi over at my aunt's house, my nephew was showing us his new talent! He can now walk! We were all so happy (and tired)! Thank God for blessings.

[03.29] It was my 5-year old cousin's graduation day from day care. She led the invocation and it was so cute because she was really jittery and looked like she was about to cry. Nevertheless, she said the memorized prayer without flaw and we are so proud of her! After her prayer, she walked over to her mother and said: "Bike!". She was referring to her mom's promise that she were to buy her a new bike since she doesn't like the one that she has if she went on stage and pray. After the event, she cried the whole time because she wanted the bicycle to be bought immediately. It was fun everyone shelled out money so that she can buy the bike she wanted. Uhm, being a bum/unemployed/student, I didn't donate. haha! But I promised that I will give her money.. soon. haha! That night, she was able to buy the bike. And she was in bike heaven.

On another note, the new pumps I purchased online was delivered. I'm not showing it off just yet. haha :) 
It'll have it's own time to shine.

And today, I was so lazy I didn't go to school. I was supposed to enrol for my summer class but then I didn't want to go out. My mother said I should cook hotcake for snacks but they're boring. So she said add some choco or anything to put flavor on it. We only have one tiny unsweetened choco bar left so I decided to just throw in some choco malt, Milo. And because I'm soooo lazy today, looked what happened to my hotcakes.

Okay, I kinda burnt them, but then they tasted good! At least, for my mother. They were too fluffy you can almost taste the air. Kidding. Nah, they were actually good - because there was nothing else to eat. :P

Lazy. It's Wednesday anyway. Anyone is entitled to be lazy.
