Chasing highs

Surely there's more to life than household chores and workload. Simple joys, had our first food park date with the fambam at Madison Commons in Pasig. It was cool. Had a few drinks (smirnoff mule) together with our sumptuous mixed cuisine dinner. I had t-bone steak, and shared kebab platter, bbq's, tempura, strawberry shakes and icecream. I like the ambiance. I thought it was going to be a bit warm since it's open air. It was surprisingly airy. And not that congested. We loved it. Definitely a good sundowner place.

I was thinking for our next family date we'd go bowling at Eastwood, I love the Magoo's Pizza there. And bowling is fun. Not an expert though. Well, I don't think any of us are experts. But what the heck? Just an alternative idea of family bonding aside from food trips. =) We missed being complete. And now we are making up for lost time.

Also been catching up with old friends. First was with friends from my past employer, Nokia. The breakfast club! Went to Pampanga to attend a birthday. It was awesome! Last Friday bonding with "Jologs" at Veterans Village, our couple BFF's. A few drinks while watching Billy Joel's and Sting's past concerts. This coming Friday, set up dinner with my colleagues from Siemens. We've gone way back. They are my kuya's. Never had one, so it's cool. I have the awesomest friends in the universe. =)

kapeng barako

"ang tapang mo, kayang kaya mo ako ipaglaban."

kainis! pagkatapos uminom ng kapeng barako kagabi di na ako makatulog. 2am na ako napapikit and had to wake up at 5am. kamote yan! mahina tolerance ko sa caffeine. isang cup lang ng kape kaya ko. pag pangalawa nagpapalpitate na ako nyan. pag pangatlo, nanginginig na katawan ko. matapang nga eh. hehehe

ang dami kong gagawin, pero wala ako sa mood. shet masama na 'to. =(

turning korean and work matters

Finally gave in and had my kdrama fix yesterday. Finished 13 episodes in less than a day. And somehow I feel uplifted. I'm such a sucker for chick flicks. Hahaha Well, kdrama/ kpop is so mainstream these days. I guess it started when they showed Goblin on ABS-CBN. I watched it way before it got the interest of the Philippine audience and I must say it's one of the best if not the best kdrama I have ever watched. The cinematography was superb! And the lead actor Gong Yoo was my super duper crush since Coffee Prince.

I love everything Korean. My dream is to go to Seoul one of these days and get to taste Korean food and see the beautiful sceneries I always watch on their kdramas. I already go around Korean restaurants here. But there's nothing like the real thing right? Have been going to korean groceries as well to buy the famous banana milk and soju. I got to taste the chum churum peach flavored soju in the US and it was refereshingly different from other alcoholic drinks. Honestly, ginawa ko syang softdrinks. Hahaha

Ok off of my korean soapbox. =) Been feeling overly sensitive these days. My tears just fall on short videos I watch. It's crazy! Good thing I'm alone in the room and no one gets to judge me. Hehehe Damn hormones!

On the career front, fall plan is coming up fast. I need to do my preparations as early as now. But can't seem to be motivated enough to start on anything. Is this a bad sign? Oh well, I love my work, but I'm beginning to get bored. I feel like I still can do more. Should get back to that growth mindset. I guess I need to study and learn more.

of games and health

so if you guys will notice, ilang posts ko na nakalagay the same book na "currently reading". hindi ko sya matuloy basahin. honestly, even my kdrama addiction was put on a halt. lintek na games kse ito. inumpisahan ng everwing tapos binalikan ko yung smurfs at hayday. wala na, lagot na, naubos na oras sa kakalaro. kung di naman laro, household chores. hayy buhayyyy! tinatamad na din ako sa instagram 365 project ko. kaso naumpisahan ko na eh. shet "inspiration" asan ka na ba? hahahah

**********

health is wealth. i am not the most healthy person out there. madami ako sakit sa truth lang. and right now i stopped all my medications. insulin, meds for my one kidney, meds for hypertension, etc etc. feeling ko lalo masisira kidney ko sa mga gamot na iniinom or iniinject ko. and i hate going to my doctors, i have to spend almost half of my day just waiting in queue for them. daming may sakit eh. so my fave quote right now is "life is short". kung panahon mo na, panahon mo na diba.

Nervous

when things are best left unsaid after all these years. and someone else is taking you home. i am here and that you have this space in my heart no one else will ever replace. no need to acknoweldge, no need for a fuss. just let me dance on my own. ~ cloudy

*******************************

NERVOUS ~ Gavin James

I promise that I'll hold you when it's cold out
When we loose our winter coats in the spring
Cause lately I was thinking I never told you
That every time I see you my heart sings

Cause we lived at the carnival in summer
We scared ourselves to death on a ghost train
And just like every ferris wheel stops turning
Oh I guess we had an expiration date
So I won't say I love you, it's too late

And oooooooooh
Ooooohohoooooh
And oooohoooooooh
Ohoooohohohoooooh

Cause every time I saw you I got nervous
Shivering and shaking at the knees
And just like every song I haven't heard yet no
I didn't know the words in front of me
In front of me, and oooooooh
But I don't wanna know

Who'll take you home?
Who'll take you home?
Who'll take you home?
Hoooooome
If I let you gooooooooooo

And oooooohhhhh
And oooooohhhhh
And oooooohhhhh
Oooooooohooooohoohhhh

Now that you're on someone else's shoulders
The winter winds are colder on my own
Maybe we will meet when we get older
Maybe we won't
So I won't say I love you if you don't
And no you don't
So I won't say I love you if you don't

Home Alone

I'm at work today. Should've worked from home instead. People in my department are in various sites today. Should make a mental note that office peeps only report in Eastwood Mondays & Wednesdays. I'm sleepy and I want to go home. Don't get me wrong, I have tons of things to do.....just not in the mood to do it. Well yeah, it's a stage....

Should get my ass back to work. Sigh...ZZZZzzzz

Small World

I love watching Supergirl. The song below was played during the very emotional separation of Kara and Mon-el in S2E22. Aww tears...

******************************

"Small World" (Idina Menzel)

I'm standing in the field
My feet lift off the ground
No one here will see me
No one will hurt me now

I'm brushing off the rain
While climbing through the clouds
Nobody can see me
No one can hurt me now

Goodbye, gravity
Goodbye, enemies
I'm going up to a place where the world is small
Where I can fly above it all
If I don't make it, sing my song
From here I'm weightless
No stars are famous
And the world is small
And the world is small

Still rising towards the dark
Don't care what's down below
'Cause no one can see me
And no one has to know

The atmosphere is lonely
And beautiful
I don't miss a thing I used to know
I used to know

Goodbye, gravity
Goodbye, enemies
I'm going up to a place where the world is small
Where I can fly above it all
If I don't make it, sing my song
From here I'm weightless
No stars are famous
And the world is small
I feel so tall

If there's nothing to break my fall
It's OK, I've seen it all
And maybe I was always small
But I could fly before I crawled

If I don't make it, sing my song
From here I'm weightless
No stars are famous
And the world is small
And the world is small

The Real Thing

So I was meaning to write about my dream two weeks ago but decided against it. Bakit ganon? Lagi kita napapanaginipan. Kahit di kita isipin. Bigla ka na lang dumadating sa panaginip. Well, it's a welcome surprise naman. I must admit, namiss naman talaga kita. It's been what, five years? or more? Things are different now. I guess we can't even be friends to the true sense of the word. It would be weird, I know.

****************

I have been reading some sad posts on my FB feed. I can't help but think that we all are going through some rough patches on different levels but we can't say that we are better or worse than the rest. Sabi nga nila parang gulong lang ang buhay minsan nasa taas, minsan sa baba, minsan sa gitna. It's cliche, but yes when you feel down and under,  just start counting your blessings.

****************

I was on leave for three days last week, it's Monday and my brain is still on holiday mode. sigh Month end reporting pa naman. grrrrr

stress test

"You get to know people when they are in difficult situations and you get to really know their character when they are not able to get what they want. We need to assess ourselves honestly. When we are in tight situations; what and how do we respond? When we are not able to get what we want how is our attitude? Self-assessment is key to self-development." ~ Francis Kong

***************************************************

So how are we when we are in difficult situations? We are human and nobody is perfect. That is why we are always on a work in progress mode all the time. And it doesn't mean that we are not moving forward. It just means that we always need to improve ourselves to be able to cope up with our ever changing environment.

If you will ask me, I do get frustrated when things don't go my way. It is an instant reaction. But when I get to think things over, I get to realize that there are just things I cannot change. So what do I do about it, I try to change my perspective. I assess what are the things that I have control over, how do I use that to my advantage. I realize also that I am human, and I need to learn and re-learn a lot of things.

In this fast paced environment, we always have to restlessly reinvent ourselves. Try to have that growth mindset and never get tired of improving ourselves. Let's read, learn, collaborate and connect with people. Be resourceful enough to find ways and means to self-development. And be mature enough to accept that there is no end to learning things.
