I finally finished reading the book, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. I think it has been a year or more since I’ve started it. Lels.
I realized this morning that I should review basic economics and the use of data analysis softwares I used before such as R, E-Views, Stata. This is because I recently applied to other job opportunities and I think I need to refresh myself on what’s written on my CV. Hehe.
I read My Family’s Slave today and got teary eyed. The piece was beautifully written but I felt sad on how the life of a person be controlled by others until her last day in the world. What was her purpose? Was it just to be a slave? I think the redemption part is kinda too late. This made me value and think more carefully about the choices I make and will be making in life.
Glad to have helped Ate Ren about I/O tables of KAZ.
I think I need to watch what I eat. I usually eat merienda because I go home late and eat dinner at home. A while ago, I ate egg salad sandwich and vanilla ice cream. Do you think it’s too much? Lels. Anyhoo, I also need to watch my caffeine intake because my insomnia is coming back.
Finally, Jungbrahimovic goodies are here!! Saranghae, oppa!
MRT was broken. Damn, I hate commuting. I took an Uber worth 300 pesos + because I had a meeting at 9am. Fortunately, it was moved to 10:30am. But bye bye 300 pesos.
I think my boss was promoted because he has a new office, the ones with outside view (that’s sort of a factor for higher ups) Way to go, Kuya J! Lels. Also he was cool and nice as ever when we discussed.
I met Linh, Aika’s Vietnamese friend from Jenesys, (her groupmate). We (also with Raymond and Rhea) had lunch at the ADB caf. She’s bubbly and nice.
Raymond, Aika and I had lunch today, together again hahaha.
I was multitasking in the afternoon, balancing I/O table and watching Ginebra vs Alaska game through my phone.
Neens and I had dinner at Salang, a Korean resto which played #Jadine songs, super lels. We ate beef bibimbap and kimchi pajeon. The serving size is totally worth it so it’s 👌👌👌 for me. We also ate cotton candy ice cream, check my IGS. Hehe.
I ate Korean food (first time in a long time) from the cafeteria, beef bulgogi and kimchi! 👌🇰🇷
Dinner w/ Gem and Aika at Makansutra plus bread/pastry shopping for pasalubong
I am glad that I survived a week of not using earphones while commuting. It’s kind of refreshing to just observe and reflect to whatever.

I cleaned my room (first time in a long time too) but not thoroughly, hehe.
I watched Ashby, movie starring Nate Wolff and Emma Roberts and an old guy, who portrayed the role of Ashby. I expected a lot from the movie but it was generally nice and touching.
I also watched Werewolf Boy, starring Park Bo Young and Song Joong Ki, while waiting for Ate Alyssa to come home from a bday dinner. I love how Bo Young never gets old, she has not changed at all. The movie was fantasy because Joong Ki was like a mutant, hence werewolf boy not like the werewolves in Twilight. Lol. I recommend you to watch it.

We attended Mass at 9am, the usual, but Yari was not with us since she’s at her dorm in Manila, reviewing for boards. Fighting, Yars! 💪
I watched The First Time, a movie included in the list of undderrated rom-coms you should watch by Buzzfeed. It has the highest IMDB rating among the list that’s why I decided to watch it first. It’s cute and nice so I was rooting for a very good ending but it was so so. Nevertheless, it focuses on the dialogue/conversations, like Before Sunset series but millenial version. Lels.
We had dinner at Locavore, near Burgos Circle in celebration of Ate Belle’s birthday. Sizzling Sinigang and Lechon Oyster Sisig got a 10/10 each for me. 👌💯💯
