Of wellness and the end

I have been recently working towards making sure I am properly managing my health issues. I am diabetic, I have a heart condition, and I am hypertensive. All these were unfortunately passed on genetically from both sides (maternal and paternal) So been seeing a lot of Doctors recently, up until November came and my Mom had a heart attack. I was supposed to be scheduled for an angiogram to check for any blockage in my arteries. I had to brush that aside to take care of my Mom.

It have been a scary ride. She was confined in the ICU for 5 days and then regular hospital room for 3 days. She went through angiogram, angioplasty and two sessions of dialysis. After a week, back again at the hospital due to water in her lungs. Hopefully, she gets discharged tomorrow as the recent xray show full regression. Now I'm afraid it's my turn. I have gone through a lot in the past. Two major surgeries, one for my adrenal gland and another to remove one kidney. Now the heart is a different matter. And I am scared to go through what my Mom went through.

I have always thought that my Mom will outlive me and not the other way around. She was always conscious about her health and careful on what she eats. So it was really a big shock to us that she went through this ordeal. I guess these days you can't tell who is healthy and who is not. Look at Isabel Granada, she looked so fit and in the pink of health. Who would've thought right?

I don't want to sound morbid, but I really think we all should prepare for our "end". It's reality and all of us is going towards the end of our life's journey. I want to prepare for mine....

I dreamt of you. We are both with our significant others. We just had a chance to reconnect. And I woke up with a happy heart. I know you are in a happy place too. Kahit sa panaginip lang kita nakita, masaya na ako.

In retrospect

Yung totoo, gusto ko pa ba talagang balikan? Hindi naman, masarap lang to reminisce about good old memories. Naalala ko lang nag anniversary kase kayo, it was not long before that when I said I am setting you free. I just knew it was going to happen. Mas marunong lang ako that time kse nadaanan ko na yung ganon. Mas alam ko na pano iprotect ang puso ko. Pero akala ko lang yun, umiyak pa din ako, umasa pa din, tanga eh. I guess we were just meant for someone else. Ganon talaga eh, sometimes you just don't end up with the one you really love.

Kahapon pa dapat ako may entry, ayoko na talaga sanang balikan eh. I would just look really pathetic. Pero bakit ba? Life is short. To hell with rules and all that crap. Gusto ko lang magexpress. Masama ba yun? I'm sure wala naman nagbabasa neto or kung meron man, di naman nila tayo kilala. Hindi ka na din naman active dito for years now. Mabuti na lang nagcocooperate ang universe. Hindi pinagtatagpo landas natin. Kahit gustong gusto kita makita, ok na lang na hindi. Para sa ikakatahimik ng buhay natin. At ng utak ko. Hahaha

Of pretending and happy trips


From the beginning, I'd like to pretend it was me

The ambiguity was driving me crazy

And still, to numb the pain, I'd pretend it was me

When you were waiting, when you were missing someone

I pretend it was me

The songs you like, the lyrics of love and longing

I pretend it was for me

The falling and catching, the dream of a happy ending

I wanted to pretend it was with me.

Until I got tired of pretending, because it was never about me.

After all these years, no matter how hard I wish for it,

It was never going to be me.

~ Cloudy


Back from a 12 day trip from SG. It was business mixed with pleasure. Suffice it to say, it was an awesome trip with lots of good memories to reminisce. Bonded with colleagues who are now becoming my good friends. I was tired with long work hours, and then fun times at night and less sleep. But I was happy. Next strat plan to be held early 1Q next year, they are thinking about doing it in Brazil or wherever we haven't done this mtg at. Something to look forward to.

tattered and torn

Do you have that tattered and torn clothing you still keep it and wear all the time? I do. I have this FUBU shirt bought in greenhills that is still with me like more than 20 yrs now. I couldn't let it go. It's super comfy with light cotton material. Gutay gutay na nasa cabinet ko pa din. And yes I still wear it. Sarap kaya sa katawan. Hehehe may partner na leggings yun. It's black but super faded na sa sobrang tagal. Nilusutan ako ng mga kasama ko sa bahay at tinapon ng di ko alam. Grrrrr...

Just the other day I was oggling over Chris Pratt on his transformation from chubby to hottie. As in pinagnanasaan ko sya hahaha I'm so lame! Anyway, shocked over his divorce with Anna Faris from their 8 yr marriage. It's sad and madami nalungkot. Nalungkot din ako, pero kung kapitbahay lang kita.....I would've knocked on your door and comforted you....with a big hug and a slimy kiss. Shet masama na ito! hahaha

Kelan ko kaya matatapos binabasa ko. Ang dami ko kse activities pag weekend, paguwi ng bahay pagod na so I sleep like a log. And when I get depressed or sad, I have the strong urge to watch a kdrama pang tanggal ng stress. Hahaha I know...excuses!

Kissing Friday

"If Friday had a face, I would kiss it." ~ Anon.


So here I am kissing Friday at Eastwood. Normally I work from home on Fridays, just to get away from the horrific traffic. (well car is coding too) However, there is this face to face meeting we need to attend to at work. Maybe because of our company's 80th anniversary in PH. So it's fine. One Friday won't hurt. =) Was about to take Uber but it was way too expensive so had to commute. Namiss ko ang usok sa kalsada. Hahaha!

On another note, a colleague from Thailand sent me a message through our ofc chat and said

Always see you online from early morning to late of night, haha    
working so hard 9:16:42 AM

Well, I guess the good thing about this is that in between I can compensate especially if I get to work from home. My meetings are usually late nights. This is the norm when you work for a global company and you have a global position. But no issue as I work hard and play harder. =)

Business travel coming up soon. SG this time. It was 9 years since my last travel to SG. I bet it has changed a lot. Will be staying for 12 days. Longer business trip this time. Full packed work schedule. And fall plan is coming up. Busy days ahead.

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. =)
