Start of Vacay

So as mentioned last night, my actual vacay has just started (^^,) I guess partly that’s why my body sort of “gave way” to some minor discomfort; it’s because my defenses to stay able to work and move about has just gone down. Anyway, I promise to eat properly and nap whenever I can and sleep long hours at night.

Cecille just came by a few minutes ago to say hi because she was utterly bored and had nothing to do XD So I sat in the car for a while and we talked a bit and made plans to go back to Som’s soon. I told her I also just lit a candle to bid 2009 and welcome 2010, said my thanks and special prayers. (Won’t write na about details of my ritual.) I realize that the weather is so great and I loved it when the sunshine was on my face, as in I totally loved it. Anyway after a while she left to check out the nearby supermarket. It was nice, that simple and short visit (^^,)

So now I’m back in my room. As for me, I’m far from being bored because I have just organized my iTunes files to upload songs in my new green iPod (^^,) I am also decluttering my room as my New Year candle burns. This cleaning up should help align my energy channels and help me recover from everything.


Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all find peace within your hearts and spend the coming year in abundance (^^,)

Lovely Evening (^^,)

Tonight was Cheese Night and Great Conversation Night (^^,)

I went to my sister’s place to have bonding time with Cecile; Cecile brought cheese for us. She brought pasteurized goat cheese, cheese with pepper, and aged edam - they were all so good (^^,) We had sparkling grape with it, after which my sister and I had Blue Mountain coffee. Our evening started around 6 PM, and we were just chatting the whole time, until we realized it was almost 10, and we didn’t notice the time at all. However, we went back to talking and then had some of the leek and onion soup and roast chicken that my sister cooked earlier today for her best friend Jennee. I also had greens (with wansoy) mixed with olive oil and balsamic. Yum.

So, next thing we realized it was 1 AM XD So we called it a night (^^,) It was fun and relaxing and the stories were all inspiring and beautiful.

Tonight, I intend to sleep long. I need to take care of my health. I’m thinking that the stuff I’m experiencing now are all due to late nights, holiday stress, shift in working style (this was effortless; i just noticed that lately I am able to work for a long time without any pauses at all), plus a recent resolution that was, and still is, quite hard for me, and I’m still trying to cope with it. However, the stress should be addressed and I think sleeping long hours should help, plus I have made a minor change in my eating habits, and no it’s not a diet because they never work for me. It’s just a minor change on certain habits and manners. So, I should sleep soon and hope for the best. I do hope that all efforts from this year come into fruition in the coming year.

At My Lola’s for Lunch

As with most Christmases, we went to my grandma’s home (my mom’s mom) for lunch. It’s nice because it’s all so homey (^^,) She can hardly walk because of her weak knees but she prepared the whole thing for all of us and decorated her house for visitors. My grandma’s like those nice warm comforting grandmas whom you associate with warm, home-cooked meals, freshly baked pudding, floral curtains, and thick blankets (^^,) So, she fed us and insisted she take care of everything despite her shaky hands. She also gave us presents, most of which she made herself. She gave me a yoga bolster which she made (^^,)

With Icing on Fingers

Found this really really old photo of me when I was about two years old, and I was feasting on the icing on my fingers.



Thought: So, at this time, HE* was already fully grown and waiting (for me?) though he didn’t know that yet.

Response Thought: Isn’t this kid psycho? XD (To have grown up into me, who is now having these thoughts ^^U)

Post-Party UCC

Went to UCC for some coffee and desserts after a Christmas party. I was planning to get my favorite Sumiyaki but missed the Vienna coffee all of a sudden so I ordered it instead (^^,)

Coming to Me (^.^)

So today, I didn’t even need to leave the house, or my room, to get some things I wanted because they just…. arrived. XD

Breakfast. I ran out of supply but apparently, my dad brought home shopao so it’s what I ate. So, my breakfast came to me XD

Merchandise. I was working and my mom knocked on my door and brought in some Victoria’s Secret merchandise. I bought XD I now have stock.

Sweets. I usually buy cotton candy when I’m out, but today, the cotton candy came to me XD My mom stepped out and found the school kids buying them and then bought, so I ate one and still have one bag on my bed XD

Delifrance: My dad asked what food we would like him to buy and now Delifrance sandwiches are on their way here XD

めんがぬ 2

So, another mengane incident. 

He said:

“おぬがいします。”

And so it began. And then I was at the edge of an imagined cliff, and I turned into a cornered animal, which I know shouldn’t be, so, a reminder PAT on the head. 

A laughter. Both his* hands on my men**.

Then the silent touch of our mengane as he leaned forward. (>.<)

Then a command to come out of the Magic of Cherry Blossoms***.

** head armor

** The Magic of Cherry Blossoms is basically the state I am in of being enraptured by his presence.

As I Had Tea in The Backyard

I took some photos as I had tea in our backyard one time, when the weather was perfect. Here are some of the photos. I guess I’m also taking more photos because we’re leaving soon (^.^)


One of my mom’s garden angels. I find her a bit creepy, though.

One of my mom’s groups of potted plants. This is mostly cactus which grows red flowers. She has other similar groups of rocks in a circle with pebbles in them, then the potted plants are placed at the center.

This is the cup of green tea I was drinking (^^,)

A purple flower I found on the ground. I was going to bring it inside for Reina-san or Mihara-san but I found a huge ant inside it so I just left it (^.^)

One of the yellow flowers growing in one section of the garden where other red flowers grew too.

This is the tree where the birds hide if someone is walking in the garden. It is almost like a chirping tree because there are lots of birds on it. I took this photo while I stayed under the tree and listened to them.

I moved back a little to took another photo, before going back inside the house to drink the rest of the tea in the teapot (^.^)

Front Yard

So on the evening I played with leaves, my parents were fixing the lights to be placed at the front of the house and when it was much darker, they turned it on to see what it would look like (^^,)


I also took a picture because I realize it’s our last Christmas here, plus that evening just felt nice (^^,)

Cream Puff with Choco Chips

I think this was taken last month - when my mom bought me choco chip cream puff from Beard Papa (^.^)


Cream Puff with Chocolate Chips (^_^)

Leafy

Currently, my hands smell like fresh leaves because I played with and pulled at the strong giant leaves in our front yard as my parents fixed Christmas lights and decor outside the house XD My mom asked me to stop destroying the leaves but when I let go, they still looked like how they did before I even touched them and showed her so I continued to tug at them and swing them back and forth. XD Now my hands smell pleasantly of leaf juice (^^,)

Goodness :)

So, lately, I have been doing a lot of cleaning around my room, by parts. I’m not sure if I mentioned that I cleaned my door (I know, it sounds weird) and a part of my wall and my cactus rack and organized my bags last Friday, and then the atmosphere started to clear right away, even if little by little. Lately I have been sleeping well which is great (^.^)

So since then, I have cleaned many parts of my room and sprayed on surfaces and windows and tonight I cleaned up half of my closet. I gave away some things and discovered which travel toiletries I need to buy. I also found some clothes I have not worn for quite some time. No matter how lazy I am, somehow I find peace and I enjoy cleaning up parts of my room after work. Tomorrow I’ll clean up the other half of my closet. My room already smells so clean even of half of it still looks like a mountain of junk XD But it feels good that the other half is quite clean (^.^)

Then, tonight, as I cleaned up my closet and was organizing the few make-ups that I kept, my dad asked if I want burger from Good Burgers and I said I wanted a cheeseburger XD Then he stepped out and came back with burgers for all. Happiness (^^,)

Now, totoo na talaga. I will do my homework na and study XD Good night (^.^)

Unhappy Aquarium

I tried out the Happy Aquarium game briefly, Very Briefly in fact, because it is more like an unhappy aquarium. Anyway I get to name all the fish I owned, and I took their photo before stopping the game. 

Here are Boo-berry, Yuki, Chicken, Crushie, Mr. Fish, Sushi, Kitty, and Killer (Image screen captured from the Happy Aquarium game)

Relax? XD

Relax? How can I relax when our proximity is making me a little faint with giddy pleasure XD It almost makes feel like I’m inside the magic of cherry blossoms. XD (Well, okay, during keiko he* said my shoulders are too tense and that I should relax. So I'm like, relax? Relax?? XD)

*TS

Full Weekend :D

Friday night, just as I was about to start studying, a confirmation for some coffee someplace nearby came, so I went out for super good coffee and beef pastrami with my bestfriend. After some updates and catching up, we bought takoyaki and maki and had way-past-midnight snack XD I still had energy for games afterward so I played a bit and then went to sleep around 4 AM.

Woke up noon of Saturday and had very little food for lunch since I wasn’t that hungry, then later on I started preparing for kendo. There was a slight change in the order of things due to a different schedule for the week, and we all did cleaning and warm up and suburi one after the other, which tired me quickly. I managed to survive through the entire practice though, and I won in shiai by two kote points yay (^^,) After which we pigged out at North Park then went to see Red Cliff which I really liked. We all went home around 3 am but my sister, her boyfriend, and I dropped by McDonald’s first before heading home.

My mom woke me up around noon of Sunday as I was spelling out the name of our dojo’s own version of Renji using small plastic toy letters in my dream. She said it’s time for lunch and that she and my dad are going out after, and if I wanted to join. I did and my sister decided to join too, so we all went out and I ended up shopping for some clothes and some stationery stuff and a Christmas present for a friend. Then we dropped off my sister to see her boyfriend and then we proceeded to another mall where I bought some more stuff, then we had dinner and bought cakes and pastries for the house. I bought rolls specifically for bringing to my sister’s place, because that’s where I was going to sleep, since she had the second part of the movie we saw. Again, I really liked the movie. Afterward, I slept, while she sneaked out around 3 AM for goto with her boyfriend. Hehe.

I spent hardly anytime in front of my computer so it’s quite refreshing and I slept long hours too (^_^)

T . T

Kurosaki-kun, there were a lot of things I wanted to do.
I wanted to become a teacher, an astronaut, and a baker.
I wanted to go to a bunch of different donut shops and ask for one of everything!
And I wanted to tell the ice cream man to give me one of everything, too!
I wish I could have five lives.
Then I could have been born in five different towns,
and eaten five limetimes’ worth of food,
and had five different careers,
and,
fallen in love with the same person, five times.
Arigatou, Kurosaki-kun.

I am a... Tenugui

So, I was telling my friend who looks like Ikkaku-chan of Bleach.

I am like, rags, next to her* perfection. I have not beholded her perfection but I have heard how she has been described. (It made me think of a surrogate XD) 

So anyway, Ikkaku-chan said, hindi naman rags. Tenugui. Tapos the surrogate is a doilie.

Tenugui.

Doilie.

Tenugui.

Doilie.

Do you realize how different that is (^^U)

So I said, ganun din yun! Doilies are pretty and meant for display and yeah they’re pretty (^^U)

But, an agreement has been reached:

Doilies are pretty. But one needs a tenugui. Doilies are for display. You can have a million doilies and replace them so quickly. A tenugui is something you really use. Something you bring with you when you do something you are passionate about. One can have a million doilies but keep bringing only one and the same tenugui.

(So parang glorified tenugui bigla ~ nagfeeling naman ako.)

Lack of Sleep = Drunken State

About a week ago, my sister was on her 2nd week of Hardly Any Sleep because she was working on a major presentation to a client. One day she came to the house and worked in my room because she needed an awake environment, food, and internet connection.

Now I read somewhere that severe lack of sleep is just like being totally drunk. And she was totally like one.

Our conversation went like this: (We were both working on our computers.)

My sister: May kape ka dyan? Ano kape mo?

Me: Yup. UCC. 118.

She didn’t reply, and continued typing something. After a while:

My sister: Ano kape mo dyan? May kape ka ba?

Me: Meron nga. UCC 118.

My sister: Pahingi naman.

So I stood and left to make coffee. I placed it beside her and then we continued to work.

After a while:

My sister: Uy ang sarap ng kape mo ah. Anong kape ‘to?

Me: Grrrr. UCC nga. 118. Yung color green. Lasing ka ba?

She didn’t reply and was just drinking the coffee.

After a while:

My sister: Ang sarap. Anong kape ‘to? Ah oo. Yung UCC. 117? Yung red ba ‘to?

Kaya Pala

Ermm….. hindi “that’s why” - it’s: “so I can, after all.” XD

I just remembered a while ago as I lay in bed.

Yes, I already climbed to bed an hour early before bedtime. However, I realize I am wide awake with my heart and mind even wider awake, so I got up and decided to drink some chocolate milk while I blogged on a couple of blogs and visited some farm games (^.^)

So, I remembered something.

Last Saturday, I was as tired as hell and was just waiting for my timing so I can take a tiny break from practice. Seriously,my side hurt and I felt weak.

HOWEVER. WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD I GIVE UP MY SPOT (and give up a chance to practice with him*) XD So I carried on. And I managed. I lasted. So, I told myself. See, kaya pala. XD Well, kaya pag talagang kailangan kayanin XD Hehe. It’s just nice to know too that I can manage after all, even when I thought I couldn’t (^^,)

Taiatari

Nani kore. (^^U) 

An imprinted smile.

The sound of laughter.

And the slight giddiness which lasted very briefly because the scent was so good. 

And it comes with the wholeness of it.

(Note: So I got distracted while playing kendo with someone* because as we did taiatari, I inhaled this really pleasant, herby scent from his gi which totally distracted me, and he caught that split second of my distraction and I think he suddenly hit me, and then laughed at me and was smiling as he watched me scramble for defense. Thankfully, my armor for the head protects not only my head from being hit, but also me from embarrassment as I turned red~)

Fruity Dessert

My dad bought dessert from the mall some time last week, and it was made up of fresh fruit and gelatin immersed in loads of cream and milk. He liked it so much that this morning, he bought tubs of fruit, made colorful gelatin, and mixed everything with cream and sweet milk. Yummy dessert XD

How Creepy Is This XD

I was going through some image files, looking for the photos I took in my Sims 2 games. I came across this photo from the other families' albums in the game (you know, those neighbors who are always there even if you have deleted them :D)

Disturbingly smooth and green babies - and a baby on the floor is something so wrong.

So. How creepy are those green babies? :D Especially the one on the floor. I can almost feel the unnatural smoothness of their skin, and the slightly lower-than-normal body temperature. Disturbing!

Confused Dog(s)?

In "Lost," during the times when the island kept jumping from one time to another, there was a moment when the present Sawyer saw the past Kate helping out the past Claire give birth. It could have been just as possible for the present Sawyer to run into the past Sawyer, just as the present John Locke found a way to aid the past John Locke when he was wounded.

So, now, what if the present Vincent ran into the past Vincent? He’d probably be super confused like, hey, I know you… then starts to get dizzy XD

Juliet’s Moment ("Lost" Season-Ender)

Watched the season-ender episode of “Lost” last night. There was a Juliet moment which I think a lot of women can relate to. It was a subtle moment though, which of course, people like Rose and Bernard would notice and understand, them being The happy and content, and I would think wiser, couple. Bernard spoke of just wanting to be with each other, meaning him and Rose. Juliet looked fondly at Sawyer, and Sawyer, responding to the first thing off the top of his head, transparently looked at Kate, who seemed to be thinking of something (or someone, Jack? Hehe.) else. Juliet saw that moment and was in a moment herself, looking down, crushed. Bernard noticed and offered her tea, because she suddenly seemed to need it. Juliet politely declined and walked on. From that point on, like a lot of women, she’d carry that moment, and thoughts surrounding that moment, until the time when it has to be… uhm, declared. Or released, like stuff from Pandora’s box XD And then the moment came. She just, changed her mind about dropping the bomb and changing the course of their lives forever. She changed her mind in the same manner a lot of women would just decide to change the top being worn with the jeans or something, right before leaving the house, which would result to the process of changing bags (and transferring all the stuff in it) and choosing the right shoes and yes maybe the earrings, etc. tralalalala. Anyway. So, she changed her mind and to Sawyer’s UTTER amazement, all that life-changing decision was because of The Moment when he looked at Kate at the idea of “staying together forever” (or something to that effect) was brought up, which for Juliet, already meant that Kate was at the top of HIS mind if we’re all going to talk about staying with Someone for a long time, just as by looking at Sawyer, it meant to her that He was at the top of her mind (and in her heart). And that is all according to what Juliet blurted out as the reason why she just changed her mind.
“Ang babae nga naman, o,” some male audiences said.

Well, oo nga. Ang babae nga naman. Like yeah, after that moment he looked at Kate, Sawyer has moved on and was Juliet-oriented again. So why, some males ask, does Juliet have to mind it so much? Then again, why does Kate have this certain effect on him, similar to a nice kind of interruption? Like, yeah, he’s made his mind to be with Juliet while Kate was away, but then Kate shows up and he’s like, annoyed, and pleased, yet annoyed, but pleased, and so on, because it’s like, darn NOW I’m confused (though not in those terms because sometimes it takes a lot to squeeze that out of a guy, maybe their own version of confused), but god it’s so good to see her, but hell yeah now what, but it’s so great to see her again, but what the hell is she doing here disturbing my peace, though yeah it would be great to have her around, and so on. So, with that, the Juliets of the world would think, so you’re not really That mine, right, like yeah, we ARE, but then you know there’s the Kate effect. Even as we sat in the submarine. She disturbed your (and my) peace when she was brought in. All the tenderness from your face minutes ago turned into a shadow over your head when she came in. So, yeah, Sawyer has issues. (For now, let us all rid ourselves of thoughts of him representing Cool Water and just think of him as Sawyer XD ) Or maybe a bit of a confusion. Or a rationalization spree as Freud would probably say.

So, ang babae nga naman?, some males would say. I don’t think Juliet’s moment was psycho or the least loony at all. She fondly looked at Sawyer (again, let us not look at the Cool Water ad) who was totally looking at and considering someone else (somewhere inside him) at the thought of being “together”. Although, yes, I understand that when guys say, no this is IT, then a lot of times, whether rightly or wrongly, they can really just choose it to be IT, just so no overthinking or too much prolonged processes need to be involved. But then again, Juliet still had every reason to feel crushed and act on it (hence leaving Sawyer, in tears), whether rightly or wrongly. It’s not because she’s just being “girly” about it, but it’s because you know, she has to preserve herself, and totally not in a defensive-overthinking-psycho mode, but because she is all grown-up and knows how to and needs to take care of herself and her happiness first. Considering everything she’s been through, she’s actually very strong and brave and level-headed enough to be beyond just “girly” about things like having moments and leaving someone, in tears. She’s totally beyond that.

Anyway, girly would be getting fixated on Cool Water. XD Just to kill the moment. Hehehe. So, moving on. She still did the right thing. To add to that, she smashed the bomb, turning herself into an instant hero. Or so we would find in the next episodes (which seem like AGES from now). And I wonder why only one foot was left of Anubis.

Kochira wa Rilakkuma-san desu XD

Rilakkuma Striking a Pose

Hahaha! I’ve always wondered what his name is and now I know - this is Rilakkuma (like, relaxed bear) XD I had my picture taken with him when I was in Japan, and Junko (a really wonderful girl I met there) gave me a ring with his frequent companion Ko-Rilakkuma on it, and I was totally clueless who this bunch is XD I always see Rilakkuma in stickers and stationery and plush sections here and there but I never knew his name. And now I do XD

Tadaima… Nya Nya XD

Yesterday, I came home and found my mom, excited, and very glad to see me. It turns out that the neighbor’s Siamese male cat has his wife and kittens hiding in our garden, behind the row of purple plants at the corner. Now she needs someone to get them out without hurting them or scaring them. Hence, my magical hands were needed XD (There have been several incidents when they needed a pair of hands to hold down cats, pull out fish bones from their gums, give them meds using a dropper, etc. and voila, Chokomochi to the rescue XD ) So anyway, we needed to get them out because the neighbor who owns the dad cat will be taking in their cat-in-laws and taking care of them and everything. The neighbor’s helpers will be coming in with a huge kitty cage where the mom and her kitties will be placed, so they can bring them home. I couldn’t touch the kittens because the mommy might get furious or something and bite me, thinking I have siopao in mind XD So I let the mommy smell my hands and then she miaowed and moved her head forward for me to stroke. I think I purred XD In a few minutes the helpers came with the cage (to temporarily carry them with, so purely for transporting purposes), and I took the mom first. When I carried her she purred so loudly that I thought I’d be off in a motorcycle XD I hugged her first (aba syempre) before placing her in the cage. She started miaowing so loudly because she was away from her kitties so I took the orange one first (there were 3 kittens, by the way), because I think he’s so wanting to go to me except that he’s afraid to fall. He miaowed like he was gonna die then immediately shut it when he landed in the cage, sprawled on the small blankie since he is still in that shaky, baby, kitty state *adore* Then I got the second one who looks like Mogget XD When the mommy had two kittens with her she stopped crying out and probably realized I am not having siopao for dinner. Then the last one, a white one with some gray, striped spots, was kind of difficult to get because she did a really good job of hiding behind the thick branches. When I placed her in the cage, they were all sprawled and shaky and unstable XD So cute! The mom looked at me and miaowed and I waved bai bai XD

Loving our Lunch :D

For the past month or so, an office friend and I have been having our hearty lunches at the Ensaymada Factory where the owner (a really nice, friendly lady) already knows what we will be getting the moment we step in since we’ve been there so often (crispy adobo for me and sirloin for my friend) XD Sadly, though, when we move offices we won’t be able to visit as often anymore T.T In any case, while we’re still working within the area, we have those lunches to look forward to XD The ensaymadas are great but we also LOVE the cheese rolls and the brownies XD
